Posted 15 September 2008 - 11:13 AM

I always use firefox but all of a sudden I started getting these pop ups from ie and they usually have CiD on the top left corner but sometimes not. I've ran multiple scans with different programs but they still pop up. I have AVG Free 8.0, Spyware Terminator, Spybot-Search and Destroy, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
Should I uninstall some of these or keep them all? Oh, and does anybody know a good free registry cleaner?
Any help will be appreciated.


Here is my HijackThis log

Hello, and welcome to the forum.

My name is Simon V., and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

Oh, and does anybody know a good free registry cleaner?

I don't personally recommend the use of ANY registry cleaners.
Here is an excerpt from a discussion on regcleaners -

Most reg cleaners aren't "bad" as such, but they aren't perfect and even the best have been known to cause problems.
The point we are trying to make is that the risk of using one far outweighs any benefit.
If it does work perfectly you will not see any difference
If it doesn't work properly you may end up with an expensive doorstop.

http://forums.whatthetech.com/Regcleaner_t42862.html
____________

Please download and install CCleaner.

Open CCleaner. On the Windows tab, leave the default options alone.
  • On the Applications tab, check (tick) all the boxes except Saved Form Information. This will remove all your saved passwords if you leave this box checked.
  • Click on the Run Cleaner button at the bottom right hand corner.
  • When the cleaner has completed, click Tools in the Left Pane.
  • Verify that Uninstall is highlighted in color, or click on it.
  • In the lower right, click Save to Text File.
  • Pull down the arrow at the top of the Save dialog and choose Desktop as the location.
  • You can leave the filename as install.txt.
  • Click Save, then exit Ccleaner.

Hi :thumbsup:

I understand that downloading music and other files may be important to you; however, the Peer-to-Peer programs that you are using to do that, even if they are not infected with malware, will bring malware into your system. Therefore, the chances of you becoming infected again are very high. This obviously can result in disabling your computer and could even lead to someone stealing sensitive personal data from your computer. Beyond the inconvenience this causes you, these programs also tend to use your computer as a server to spread more infection all over the internet, so your computer becomes a part of the malware problem.

Remember that no matter how clean the program you're using for Peer-to-Peer filesharing may be, it offers no guarantees regarding the cleanliness of files you may choose to download. All files available via Peer-to-Peer filesharing carry a high risk, particularly those that offer you illegitimate methods of using legitimate software programs without paying for them. Any program or file that offers you the ability to access non-freeware programs at no cost, e.g., pirated software and/or cracks/key generators for gaining access to legitimate software, is 100% guaranteed to contain malware.

Here is some information that looks at the rates of infection:

http://www.benedelman.org/spyware/p2p/

With that being said, I recommend that you remove the following Peer-to-Peer program(s):

(Click on Start, then Control Panel. Double click on Add or Remove Programs)

LimeWire 4.18.3

Also remove the following program -

Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.1
____________

Open HijackThis, perform a scan and put a check next to the following items (if present):

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)

Close all programs except HijackThis and click on Fix checked.
____________

I see that you have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware installed. Please open it.
  • Once the program has loaded, click on the Update tab, then click Check for Updates.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Click on the Scanner tab, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location.
  • You can also access the log by doing the following:
  • Click on the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware icon to launch the program.
  • Click on the Logs tab.
  • Click on the log at the bottom of those listed to highlight it.
  • Click Open.
____________

In your next reply, please post:
  • the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log
  • a new HijackThis log
  • a description of how your computer is currently running

I uninstalled LimeWire 4.18.3 and Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.1. My computer is actually running a lot faster, it hardly freezes up at all anymore and it used to all the time. My browser used to take forever to load and now it is much faster, the CiD pop ups seem to have disappeared. The only complaint I really have is about my bluetooth acting up but I assume thats normal having a wireless mouse and keyboard, but if it isn't is there anything you can do to help that? The problem is that when I turn my computer on sometimes it doesn't detect the bluetooth connection so I have to hook up my wired mouse and keyboard to get them working again. This problem isn't really that big of a deal considering it isn't a threat to my computer but if can offer any help it would be much appreciated but if you can't help, thats fine
thanks for all the help!

Hi :thumbsup:

The only complaint I really have is about my bluetooth acting up but I assume thats normal having a wireless mouse and keyboard, but if it isn't is there anything you can do to help that?

I'm sorry, but that's something I don't know very much about. You can always try asking in the Windows help forum > http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/56/windows-xp-home-and-professional/

Now that your log looks clean, please advise of any problems you are still experiencing, or follow these simple steps to keep your computer clean in the future:

Disable and Enable System Restore - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

Step 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
Step 2: Reboot your computer.

Step 3: Turn on System Restore:
  • On the desktop, right-click My Computer
  • Click Properties
  • Click the System Restore tab
  • Uncheck Turn off System Restore
  • Click Apply, and then click OK
Note: Only do this once, NOT on a regular basis!

Make your Internet Explorer More Secure - Please read and follow the recommendations at this site - http://surfthenetsafely.com/ieseczone8.htm

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, please read and follow the following recommendations -
  • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  • Click once on the Security tab.
  • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  • Click once on the Custom Level button.
  • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt.
  • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable.
  • Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable.
  • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt.
  • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt.
  • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt.
  • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
  • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
Visit Microsoft's Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://update.microsoft.com/ regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Install WinPatrol - An excellent startup manager, notifies you if programs are added to startup, allows delayed startup, ... A must have! An installation guide can be found here: http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - You should scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would with your anti-virus software.

Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A tutorial can be found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/use-spywareblaster-to-protect-your-computer/

Update All Your Security Programs Regularly - Make sure you update all your security programs (Anti-Virus, Firewall, Anti-Spyware) regularly (once a weak, at least). Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

You can also read this excellent article by TonyKlein: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
