My internet (firefox) suddenly started having popups opening new windows (no idea where it directed to for most of them, but for the few I didn't close in time, I could swear it went to yellowpages of all places :) ). Already tried your instructions for both VundoFix and VirtumundoBegone, neither of which worked (there was still one dll file that wouldn't erase...). I then did the majority of the steps for the Hijackthis (I don't have SP2 yet, and can't install it for now obvious reasons), which led me here... I don't even have the mental energy to feel annoyed anymore... Here's the Hijackthis Log:

Thanks

EDIT: I forgot to mention, the only thing that VundoFix and VirtumundoBegone cannot seem to deal with (that shows up, there may be more for all I know) - C:\Windows\system32\urfkpf.dll

VundoFix says it's there, but that it is unremovable (even after reboot), and VirtumundoBegone doesn't seem to acknowledge its existence... I'm guessing that it would be a very bad idea to just delete it manually. :thumbsup:

Hello, Mantarni.
:thumbsup: to BleepingComputer.com

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)

I want to apologise that it has taken so long to get back to you. We on the HJT Team are working as fast as possible to get your log answered.

If you would still like help, please post a new HiJack This log below, as things may have changed on your system.

If you do not still need help, please let me know, so that I can move on to other users who still need help.

Please take note of the following:
  • While a HJT Team member is working with you, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
  • Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" :).

Hello, Mantarni.
We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP, Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

We need to execute an OTMoveIt3 script
  • Please download OTMoveIt3 by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Paste the following code under the Posted Image area. Do not include the word "Code".
    :Files
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\awtqoNhg.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\urfkpf.dll
    
    :Reg
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{226979c8-7433-4178-a5e4-2a785643dc2e}]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{226979c8-7433-4178-a5e4-2a785643dc2e}]
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{2F6C084A-D980-4B6D-9065-24095DEC3654}]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2F6C084A-D980-4B6D-9065-24095DEC3654}]
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{C17BC8CE-FFB6-4C5B-BDB8-40612287BB09}]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{C17BC8CE-FFB6-4C5B-BDB8-40612287BB09}]
  • Push the large Posted Image button.
  • OTMI3 may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.
  • Copy/Paste the contents under the Posted Image line here in your next reply.
  • If you are unable to copy/paste from this window (as will be the case if the machine was rebooted), open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post.
We have to remove some entries in HiJack This
  • Please re-open HiJackThis and choose do a system scan only. Check the boxes next to ONLY the entries listed below:
    O20 - AppInit_DLLs: urfkpf.dll
  • Close all windows other than HiJackThis, including browsers, so that nothing other than HijackThis is open, then click Fix Checked. A box will pop up asking you if you wish to fix the selected items. Please choose YES. Once it has fixed them, please exit/close HijackThis.
In your next reply, please include the following:
  • OTMoveIt3's Log
  • A New HiJack This log

I'm sorry to hear that :thumbsup:.

Pressing F8 at boot, you can select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure". We can then use the error code that will be displayed to diagnose further if you wish. Maybe we can fix it without messing things up ;)

No, thanks though. The entire thing went kaput, and I tried reinstalling it close to 20+ times, using every method available to me. Got irritated, gave up, and downloaded/burned a Linux Ubuntu disk. It installed/works perfectly fine. *sigh* :)

A great way to feel that there is a god is from the outright malicious sense of humor the world has and the twisted aesops it gives... I mean, rather than being rewarded for my extensive earlier efforts, I succeeded when I flat-out quit. :thumbsup:

I'm sorry to hear you had that issue.

Since this issue appears resolved, this topic is closed.
