Hi, I logged on today and got a message from SpywareGuard about a BHO

NEW BHO DETECTION ALERT
On 16:06:18 05/04/2005 a new BHO installation attempt was detected.
BHO: {8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26}
ProgramID: n/a
File Location: C:\WINDOWS\system32\geedd.dll
User Action Taken: REMOVE BHO

Every time I clicked on remove it just came back. I cannot find the dll in question and don't know how to remove it. From the following HJT log I have tried checking the O2 and O20 to remove the issue but it doesn't work... just reappearing every time. Any ideas?

Hello nicky_gee and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Download CCleaner and install it but do not run it yet.

Download the Pocket Killbox and unzip the contents of KillBox.zip to a convenient location.

Step #2

I recommend that you remove MessengerPlus. The installation program for MessengerPlus includes the hard to remove C2-Media LOP infection in the installation program.

Remove installed programs using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel:
  • Click Start.
  • Click Control Panel.
  • Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  • Look in the Currently installed programs box for each program listed below and if it is there:
  • Click on it to select it.
  • Click Change (or Change/Remove) button.
  • If you are prompted to confirm the removal of the program, click Yes.
Messenger Plus! 3
Step #3

Double-click on KillBox.exe 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\geedd.dll
  • 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 #4

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: (no name) - {8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\geedd.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MessengerPlus3] "C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 3\MsgPlus.exe"
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MessengerPlus3] "C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 3\MsgPlus.exe" /WinStart
O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/242fede73d3f49...ip/RdxIE601.cab
O20 - Winlogon Notify: geedd - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\geedd.dll

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

Step #5

Start CCleaner and click on the Run Cleaner button in the lower right-hand corner. When it is finished close CCleaner.

Step #6

OK. Reboot your computer 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.

Hi nicky_gee. this is kind of acting like a different infection that is going around with a file with another name. Let's try the following.

Step #1

Download Process Explorer by Sysinternals 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

[-HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\geedd]


Save the document to your desktop as fixgeedd.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 geedd.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.
    • 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 geedd.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.
    • After you have killed all of the files shown above under Explorer click Ok.
  • You can now close Process Explorer.
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: (no name) - {8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\geedd.dll
O20 - Winlogon Notify: geedd - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\geedd.dll

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

Step #6

Locate the fixgeedd.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\geedd.dll
  • 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.

Hi nicky_gee. Sorry I didn't get back sooner but I didn't get to your email until a few minutes ago. I had more than 30 logs going today and it's been kind of hectic.

In any case, your log is clean. Good Job! You must have had a new strain of the infection I was talking about before. How are things running? Any problems?

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, 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 and a good antivirus application like the ones you are currently using. It is critical to have both a firewall and antivirus to protect your system 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!

You're very welcome nicky_gee. I'm glad that we could help.

Now that your issues have been resolved I will close this topic. If you need it reopened for this same issue then please PM me. If you have any new issues in the future then please start a new topic.

Cheers.

Keep on computing!
