Step #1

You have a Lop infection which comes bundled with messenger Plus.
  • Go to Add/Remove programs. Double click on "Messenger Plus!" (or click on Remove)
  • The "Messenger Plus! - Setup" is now displayed. Click on the Uninstall button. Note: options displayed on the first screen are not related to the sponsor program.
  • The sponsor screen is now displayed (if you don't see it, search for it in your Task Bar). To prove that someone is currently reading the screen, you have to type the code that is displayed. Once you enter the code, press Uninstall.
  • If you entered the code properly, the program will ask you to confirm that you want to uninstall. You must answer "Yes" to this question, else, you won't have another chance of uninstalling.
  • To complete the uninstallation, follow the instructions that are displayed (the first one is to close all your Internet Explorer windows, that's very important). When everything is complete, restart your computer and, hopefully the infection should be gone.
  • Please then post a fresh log (in this thread) after rebooting and we'll deal with the other bad entry in your log.
If you want to keep Messenger Plus, download it again AFTER we've cleaned you.
The Lop sponsored advertising program must be rejected.
Read the installation procedures carefully.
When you get to the Sponsor Agreement, SELECT: I Refuse to give my support, install Messenger Plus! without the sponsor'.

Step #2

Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into the new document:

dir %Windir%\tasks /a:h > files.txt
notepad files.txt


Save the doucment to your desktop as findjobs.bat and close Notepad. Locate the findjobs.bat file on your desktop and double-click on it to run it. A Notepad window will open with some information in it. Make a note of the file location because I need you to include all of the information in your next post.

Step #3

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps along with the information from step #2 using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

Hi Dani_Kana. If you did not uninstall it using the steps outlined in the directions I gave you then we are in a pickle and I will need to come up with a manual uninstall for you.

Please post a new HijackThis log so I can see what we have left.

Cheers.

Step #1

In this step we will remove some programs using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel:
  • Click Start.
  • Click Control Panel.
  • Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  • Look in the Currently installed programs box for each program listed below and if it is there:
  • Click on it to select it.
  • Click Change (or Change/Remove) button.
  • If you are prompted to confirm the removal of the program, click Yes.
Media Access
Internet Optimizer
Comet Cursor

Step #2

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.vwdquzhehewuwixyubmbj.com/Oixtd...vBkxqrT3l9v.jsp

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Step #3

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):C:\WINDOWS\DOWNLO~1\SEARCH~1.DLL (look for the folder name that begins with DOWNLO)
C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMETS~1\ <--folder (look for the folder name that begins with COMETS)
C:\Program Files\Media Access\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\Rmbjgf\ <--folder
C:\WINDOWS\lbbho.dll
C:\WINDOWS\wvqvkzql.exe
c:\temp\salm.exe

Step #4

Download CleanUp! and install it. Start CleanUp! and click on the CleanUp! button. Let it run to completion. It may take a few minutes depending on the size of your hard drive so be patient.

Step #5

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

Hi Dani_Kana. We still have a couple hanging on here. Please perform the following steps in order.

Step #1

Download the Pocket Killbox.

Unzip the contents of KillBox.zip to a convenient location and then double-click on KillBox.exe to launch the program.
  • Paste this file into the top Full Path of File to Delete field.
    • c:\temp\salm.exe
  • Click the Delete File button which looks like a stop sign.
  • Click No at the Pending Operations prompt.
Repeat the above steps for each of the following files. The only difference is that you will be substituting the file listed in the first step with each of the files below. c:\windows\wvqvkzql.exe
After you add the last file and it prompts to reboot, you should press the Yes button to allow it to do so. If you get any error messages then just reboot manually.

Step #2

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [salm] c:\temp\salm.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wvqvkzql] c:\windows\wvqvkzql.exe

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Step #3

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

Hey Dani_Kana. Now that's a clean log. Good job! How are things running? Any more problems?

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus like the one you are currently using. It is critical to have both a firewall and an anti-virus application and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit monthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scanners
weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!
