Posted 04 August 2008 - 01:13 PM

I am trying to clean up an HP Pavilion 7915,1.1 Ghz, 256Mb Ram, Win XP Home SP2 for my
daughters brother-in-law who is about 35 and mentally impaired (= a young teen???). He does
live on his own and I try to protect his system with freebies like AVG without locking it
down with something like Net Nanny or K9. The new AVG8 seems to really slow things down but
it does provide antivirus and antispyware combined. There is no 3rd party firewall installed.
Regardless, popups are a challenge for him. He knows to just close the windows via the top
right X but there is no guarantee he won't select the wrong option.

Anyway, Problems encountered:

Multiple popups with references to Virus Remover 2008, PC Privacy Cleaner, XP Antivirus 2008.
The task bar shows 'Virus Alert!' next to the time.

The standard Start Menu does not show 'Programs' but switching to Classic Start Menu does.
There is no access to Control Panel in the Classic Start Menu but is in the standard Start Menu.

Neither Start Menu configuration has a Log Off option (Turn off Computer is still there) but
the Windows-L function takes you back to the Logon screen which shows the user as 'Logged On'
Clicking on the user immediately brings you back to the desktop.

There is absolutely no access to the C: Drive unless in Safe Mode

When logging in, the desktop wallpaper shows but disappears just prior to the desktop icons
appearing leaving the default white background. The right click function on the desktop is
disabled and accessing Display in the Control Panel returns a pop up saying "Your system
administrator disabled the Display control panel"

I am not sure what else might be going on. He said the problems started about a week ago but
all the restore points appear to be gone (I set one about 6 months ago the last time I cleaned
his computer for him). The System Restore Wizard calendar does not go back to past months when
clicking the back arrow for past months.

What I have done:

1) I have CCleaner installed but went ahead and ran ATF-Cleaner in Safe Mode.
2) Installed and ran SuperAntiSpyware Free in Safe Mode.
3) Upgraded from AVG 7.xxx to AVG8 Free vsn (not in Safe Mode)
4) Installed and ran most current HijackThis
5) Ran DSS per preparation guide

Note: At present I cannot connect his computer to the internet since I brought it to my house to
work on. His computer only has USB, no ethernet nor WiFi card. His is specifically matched to
his Cox Cable modem and my router only takes CAT5 ethernet or WiFi. So I use my system to download
anything I need to a USB thumb drive then port it over to his system, then reverse that to upload
the HijackThis file. Hmmm ??? split my Cox cable and bring his modem over for a direct connection?

Anyway, enough blather ... The popups have discontinued for now (lack of internet access?) but all
of the configuration issues above persist as does the 'Virus Alert' next to the time. Here is the
DSS/HijackThis Log.

Hi,

First of all, read and perform the instructions I have posted here:

Then, when you're done, * Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:

This includes installing the Windows XP Recovery Console in case you have not installed it yet.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that, along with a new HijackThis log.

Hi Miekiemoes

Thank you for the reply. I had to get the cable modem that was matched to the computer I am working to fix. Your help has been invaluable. The registry fixes and varestorepolicies went fine. I downloaded the recovery console, used combo fix to install it then turned virus, spyware and firewall off and let Combofix do its thing. Ran a new Hijackthis. Here are both logs. Let me know if there is anything else we need to take care of. Thanks again!

Hi,

We're not finished yet...

I also see that there are some entries you have disabled via msconfig including some malware related entries which contains strange characters.
Using a regfix with these strange characters in it won't work. In such cases, I always delete the entire startupregkey and rebuild it again with the legitimate ones, but for that I need a full export of the startupreg here. And in your case, I see you have only a few legitimate entries in your msconfig > startup and as a matter of fact, they are not really needed to start up with Windows anyway, so they may stay disabled and can actually be deleted. The only legitimate one that you may enable in the future again will be Teatimer, but we'll delete it anyway as well since Spybot S&D will come with a new update soon, so you'll have to reinstall it anyway again.

* Open notepad - don't use any other texteditor than notepad or the script will fail.
Copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into notepad:

Collect::[8]
C:\WINDOWS\System32\l.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ynplvohd.rty
Driver::
YNPLVOHD
Registry::
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\Winlq48.sys]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\Winmr85.sys]


Save this as txtfile CFScript

Then drag the CFScript into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

Posted Image

This will start ComboFix again. * it will create a zipped file on your Desktop - [8]-Submit_Date_Time.zip
* another file will be present on your desktop: CF-Submit.htm which will open after you ran Combofix.
* Where it says: "Submit files for further analysis", click OK and a browser Window will open. There you'll see: "copy/paste filepath into the box & click OK". You'll find the filepath below, so copy and paste this in the above field and click OK.
If the window didn't open, just submit the [8]-Submit_Date_Time.zip file here

After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply together with a new HijackThislog.

Thanks Miekemoes

I understand what you want me to do but the following took place before I saw your post and I want to wait on your response:
So based on your observations, even though the startup items were disabled, they could have caused the following?

I started to reset the home page for IExplorer and for Firefox to his favorite www.WWE.com. IE went just fine. When I opened Firefox and set the home page to WWE, it came up saying that the flash player needed updating. Ok, no problem as I do this for him periodically. I exited Firefox and typed www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer into IE7 and installed the most recent (from ....115 to ....124 I think). Again no problem I thought. both versions of flashplayer for IE7 and firefox were listed with the same vsn number, yet when I exited IE7 and went back into firefox, it was still calling for a player update, so this time I typed in the adobe address in the firefox address bar and selected to download the firefox version directly from the Adobe web site. This time it acted like a brand new install and wanted me to accept the terms. I closed the dialogue box without responding and exited adobe and firefox. Guess what! I now have PCPrivacyCleaner, VirusRemover, Vista Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2008 ICONS on the desktop again.

Not sure what else might have been changed. I also immediately turned off the modem pending further action.

Where to go from here? This time I will sit on my hands until the all clear is sounded. Thank you. Thank you.

Hi,

Please do not set the startpage to www.WWE.com again, because it's infected with this fake message to update the flashplayer. If you indeed click it, you'll get infected.
So, please perform the steps with Combofix first. It shall display the log aterwards and then I can see what other malware installed in between, so we can tackle it afterwards as well.

Good Day!

Before I drag CFScript onto Combofix, will I be able to save or rebuild the following startup entries?

1. This computer is an older HP Pavilion 7915 with one of the specialty keyboards and its functionality may be affected by the removal of HPSYSDRV, KBD, PS2 and possibly HKCMD. I would like to either keep or be able to rebuild these although I think disabling or removing HKCMD will probably be ok. Pretty sure he won't be performing tasks that require it.

2. I am very concerned about removing RECGUARD. On HP computers, Recguard prevents the deletion or corruption of the WinXP Recovery Partition. Without it enabled, it is possible to completely knock out the partition which may require sending the PC back to HP for a re-image.

On my way to work, look forward to your post later :thumbsup:

Hi,

The script doesn't remove any startup entries which are currently enabled. Only the ones which you have disabled via msconfig previously (and which are not required to run anyway).
These are the entries that the script is going to remove:

Sorry I misunderstood your previous post. Thanks for the clarification. Drug cfscript to combofix and copied and pasted the link for the zip file to be sent (successfully). Reran HijackThis. Here are the combofix and Hijackthis logs for when you have time. Thank you.

Hi,

Guess what! I now have PCPrivacyCleaner, VirusRemover, Vista Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2008 ICONS on the desktop again.

Combofix already took care of this as well :thumbsup:


* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.wwe.com/ <== checking this will restore the startpage to the default startpage (msn), but you can change that afterwards again. As long as you don't set it to wwe.com again since this site appears to be vulnerable currently. I didn't check it yet if it has been resolved.
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Then, * Go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /u

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.

Let me know in your next reply how things are now.

Lookin' Great! Thanks!

Ran HijackThis then uninstalled combo fix. Still have one desktop icon "VirusRemover2008" but the path for it at C:\Program Files\VirusRemover2008\VRM2008.exe is gone. I should be able to just delete the icon.

Is there a source I can check to verify when the site vulnerability for WWE.com has been resolved? The computer owner's primary use of the computer revolves around this web site (the only other thing I have to do is keep his brother off the computer -- he visits the xxx sites where half my problems arise).

I have a whole lotta questions but I know this isn't the forum. I have looked through the tutorials and would like to learn more about detailed spyware removal. Can you point me to a starting point?

Take care, your help has been much appreciated.

Hi;

Yes, delete that icon.

I see wwe.com is OK now.

Whoever the computer owner is, make sure he reads my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.
And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.
Extra note: Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run the Secunia Software Inspector Scan.

To learn more about a detailed malware removal, you can ask the forum admin (Grinler) if there's still a place in the training school here.
If not, then register at Spywareinfo and post in thread to get access to the bootcamp there. I'm active there as well. :-)

Happy Surfing again!
