This is my first ever forum post , motivated by desperation ! The machine in question belongs to a friend , and was once protected by Norton; however the licence was not renewed , and several years worth of malware accrued.Most of this was removed by online scanning with Housecall , panda , NOD32 , Bit Defender and Ewigo ( with the hdd mounted as a slave in my machine , as no Microsoft or other security updates are possible ; there is no redirection to other sites , it simply will not connect).Also scanned with my copy of Kaspersky Internet Security whilst hooked up as a slave.

I the followed the all steps in the BleepingComputer preparation guide ; installation of Ad Aware , Spybot and McAfee Avert Stinger . I have also installed SUPERantispyware , Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and scanned with both McAfee Avert rootkit detective and F-Secure blacklight rootkit software ; I have installed Kaspersky Anti-Virus together with ZoneAlarm , although nothing can update itself , so these are of limited value .
Hundreds of items malware were succesfully removed using the tools listed above . However the machine remains unusable for the internet because it is not possible to update windows or anything else ; the only other compromise in functionality I can see is that it is impossible to place icons/shortcuts on the desktop. Using Ad-Aware in accordance with the tutorial reveals a number of redirected hostfile entries (TAI 4) , although it can't remove or quarantine them ; examination of the host file shows a large number of dubious looking entries besides those placed there by the security software.
I have reached the limits of my knowledge and ability to help my friend , and I would be extremely grateful for advice if anyone can spare the time to look at the logfile .
Many thanks.Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2

Hello jellycat

Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Forum, sorry about the delay, but the amount of people posting with infected computers is through the roof and sometimes we can't get to logs as fast as we would like to. If you have not resolved your issue and still need assistance, post a new HJT log please as your system may have changed since your original post.

You have some major infections on this system, one being a backdoor trojan that is letting other garbage in and possibly letting someone else take over your computer, I strongly urge you except for posting here to stay offline until your clean.

Go to C:\Program Files and create a new folder and name it Hijackthis, then go here E:\HiJackThis.exe, right click on this and select CUT and then Paste it into the new folder.

Hi ken545

thank you for your reply - don't worry , I do understand there is going to be a delay when assorted malware is flourishing .

Unfortunately I was under some pressure to get the machine in question (belonging to a friend ) back to working order, and so I ultimately had to format /reinstall Xp ( I hate doing that !) .

Next time , I hope to have more time and to be able to follow the process through from start to finish.

Anyway , thanks again.

jellycat,

Sorry you had to go through a new install, but sometimes its the way to go. I can't apologize enough about the delay in responding to you, not just this forum but all the Malware removal forums are just blasted with people posting with infected computers. Sometimes with the amount of logs we get one or two fall through the cracks as yours may have done. What I would like you to do is if you ever have any issues like this in the future, is to post a HJT log in the forum and then PM ( Private Message ) me with the link and I will pick it right up for you so you won't have to wait again. I am providing some links and tips to free tools to install to help keep you more secure on the internet.


Keep in mind if you install some of these programs. Only ONE Anti Virus and only ONE Firewall is recommended, more is overkill and can cause you problems. You can install all the Spyware programs I have listed without any problems. If you install Spyware Blaster, you can still install Spybot Search and Destroy but do not enable the TeaTimer in Spybot.


Here are some free programs to install, all free and highly regarded by the fine people in the Malware Removal Community
  • Spybot Search and Destroy 1.6
    Check for Updates/ Immunize and run a Full System Scan on a regular basis. If you install Spyware Blaster ( Recommended ) then do not enable the TeaTimer in Spybot Search and Destroy.
  • Spyware Blaster It will prevent most spyware from ever being installed. No scan to run, just update about once a week and enable all protection.
  • Spyware Guard It offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts, again, no scan to run, just install it and let it do its thing.
  • IE-Spyad
    IE-Spyad places over 6000 web sites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • Firefox 3 It has more features and is a lot more secure than IE. It is a very easy and painless download and install, it will no way interfere with IE, you can use them both.

Safe Surfn
Ken

Ken - many thanks . I will probably take you up on your kind offer , as I deal with this stuff from time to time for friends , friends of friends etc ( I'm sure you know what it's like ! ).I am also going to look at all the tools / links / sites that you have given me . I find the whole thing fascinating ( fortunately ) .
With best wishes , Andy / jellycat .
