Hi,

My pc began to slow considerably while working with IE. Extra windows pointing to vipfares, search42 and others began popping up. I also noticed more disk activity and network (DSL) activity. I ran CWshredder and it found 'Look2Me'. It removed it and asked to reboot the system. When the system came back, I reran CWshredder and it again deleted 'Look2Me'. I tried this several times, in safe mode as well, with no change. Posted below is the log from HJT. I cannot tell if any troublesome objects are indentified. I have also ran Spybot. Ad-Aware and AVG.

I would greatly appreciate any guidance anyone may have in deleting whatever spyware I have.

Thanks,

Hello mdw and welcome to the BC forums. It appears that we have a Vundo infection here so let's go get it. Please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Download Process Explorer by Sysinternals and unzip it to your desktop. Do not run it yet.

Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it to your desktop. Do not run it yet.

Step #2

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

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44}]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44}]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B8B55274-0F9A-41E5-9067-A3539BD9E860}]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B8B55274-0F9A-41E5-9067-A3539BD9E860}]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSEvents.MSEvents]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSEvents.MSEvents.1]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\MSEvents.MSEvents]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\MSEvents.MSEvents.1]


Save the document to your desktop as fixvundo.reg and close Notepad.

Step #3

The rest of this fix must be done in safe mode.

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Step #4

Locate procexp.exe on your desktop and double-click on it to start the program.
  • In the top section of the Process Exlporer screen double-click on WinLogon.exe to bring up the WinLogon.exe Properties Dialog.
    • Click on the Threads tab at the top.
    • Locate each instance of olelog.dll, click once on the instance and then click the Kill button.
    • If you see any .ini or .bak files with either the same name or the file name in reverse, kill them as well.
    • Repeat the above directions for all instances or imgtapi.dll if they are present (they might not be).
    • After you have killed all of the files shown above under WinLogon click Ok.
  • Next, double-click on Explorer.exe.
    • Click on the Threads tab at the top.
    • Locate each instance of olelog.dll, click once on the instance and then click the Kill button.
    • If you see any .ini or .bak files with either the same name or the file name in reverse, kill them as well.
    • Repeat the above directions for all instances or imgtapi.dll if they are present (they might not be).
    • After you have killed all of the files shown above under Explorer click Ok.
Step #5

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:O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ras\olelog.dll
O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {B8B55274-0F9A-41E5-9067-A3539BD9E860} - C:\WINDOWS\msagent\imgtapi.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [expoler] C:\WINDOWS\system32\disc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [runlogx] C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool.exe %srun%
O4 - Global Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe
O18 - Protocol: relatedlinks - {CD8D1CAA-FE4A-45DF-A06C-028AAF1821DE} - (no file)
O20 - Winlogon Notify: imgtapi - C:\WINDOWS\msagent\imgtapi.dll (file missing)
O20 - Winlogon Notify: olelog - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ras\olelog.dll
O20 - Winlogon Notify: urlfax - C:\WINDOWS\system\OOBE\HTML\MOUSE\urlfax.dll
O23 - Service: CWShredder Service - Unknown owner - C:\Documents and Settings\default\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\4TQRKL2B\CWShredder[1].exe (file missing)

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

Step #6

Locate the fixvundo.reg on your desktop and right-click on it. Choose Merge from the popup menu and answer Yes or Ok to any further prompts.

Step #7

Locate KillBox.exe on your desktop and double-click on it to start the program.
  • Click Delete on Reboot.
  • Paste the line below into the top Full Path of File to Delete box.
    • C:\WINDOWS\system32\ras\olelog.dll
      C:\WINDOWS\msagent\imgtapi.dll
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\disc.exe
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool.exe
  • Click the Delete File button which looks like a stop sign.
  • Click Yes at the Delete on Reboot prompt.
  • Click Yes at the Delete next Reboot prompt.
  • If you get a PendingFileRenameOperations Registry Data has been Removed by External Process! message then just restart manually.
Step #8

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

Thanks for the quick reply.

I just completed the task list and didn't have any troubles. I didn't find any .ini or .bak files with forward or reverse names in the threads areas.

Here is the latest HJT output.

Thanks again for these forums and your expertise.

Hey mdw. It looks like you got it all in one shot. Good job! How are things running? Any 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!
