Posted 01 November 2008 - 01:11 PM

A couple of days ago, a red X icon popped up on my toolbar and I began getting popup windows constantly stating that my computer had been infected with a virus and that I should click on the window in order to fix it. I though it was a legitimate warning so I kept trying to click on it but nothing would happen. It wasn't until I actually read the whole message thoroughly and saw that the word "prevent" was misspelled as "pervent" that I began to suspect something. I looked up information online and found out that it was probably the Rogue Antivirus. I searched online for ways to remove it and one of the websites suggested downloading Smitfraudfix and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware so I did and I ran both. Malwarebytes showed infections, which I deleted. The website suggested running Smitfraudfix in Safe Mode but the first couple of times I tried this it wouldn't work so I ran it in Normal Mode and removed the infections it found. I finally figured out how to run it in Safe Mode, so I ran it again in Safe Mode. After this, the popups stopped but my desktop background changed to blue. I was able to change it but then I noticed that my toolbar clock was stuck on military or 24 hour time and when I would try to change it, the time shown would be correct but then when I hit apply, it would still be in military time. I have gone through all of the recommended steps in the Preparation Guide. When I ran Adware for the second time, it showed 41 items detected under the family name "MyWeb Search". I think my computer has Windows XP Service Pack 2 but when I did the Microsoft Updates it installed Service Pack 3. I have pasted my HijackThis Log below. Any assistance you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:



Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
Posted Image If I have helped you in any way, please consider a donation to help me continue the fight against malware.


Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!

Your log is actually looking pretty clean. Let's see what we can do for your time format.

Click Start -> Control Panel -> Regional and Language Settings -> Customize.
Select the Time tab. For Time format, choose h:mm:ss tt

Let me know if that does the trick.
Are you having any other problems?

It worked. The time is back to normal. The only other changes I have noticed are that when my computer starts up it automatically goes to this black screen with gray letters sort of like the screen I get in Safety Mode. The screen asks me to "please select an operating system" but automatically chooses one before I can do anything. It goes to Normal Mode and everything works fine. My computer starting doing this when I downloaded Zone Alarm Security. Is this normal?

I'm not sure, but that just sounds like Zone Alarm is loading up and you catch sight of it. I seem to remember a tweak so that you don't see the black screen, but I haven't been able to find it again. As long as things load up as they should I wouldn't worry too much about it.


Follow this process to uninstall Combofix. It will also restore a few settings and remove quarantined items.
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK

  • Posted Image




Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • 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 Initialize 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.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.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 Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
