Hi,

I've managed to get rid of the webmediaviewer / hpmon / hpmom problem with anti-malware which seemed to be causing most of the problems. But I still get threat notifications from spyware doctor and symantec, so it leads me to believe there is still something sitting on my machine. I also get registry errors from registry mechanic everytime I re-boot. My HiJack This log is below.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help!

-Adam

Hello, adamdkennedy
Apologise in advance for any confusion.. SNOW has asked me to take over this log for her :thumbsup:

Do you recognise the domain
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = TSL.COM
O17 - HKLM\Software\..\Telephony: DomainName = TSL.COM
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = TSL.COM

But I still get threat notifications from spyware doctor and symantec, so it leads me to believe there is still something sitting on my machine

Does either program list a name or location of the baddies? Are they in C:\System Volume Information?

I also get registry errors from registry mechanic everytime I re-boot.

Registry mechanic finds a ton of crap that is not really errors.. It's like cleaning temp files. In fact.. I'd usually post this warning:

You appear to have a Registry Cleaner installed!
The following is referring to Registry Mechanic
Please be aware that bleepingcomputer staff do not recommend the usage of registry cleaners / tools due to the following facts:
  • Registry tools can cause irreparable damage to your Operating System
  • Registry tools can, as a result of the above, render your pc to be inoperable.
This is done, assuming that the major audience here at this board might be inexperienced users and thus a suggested safeguard from our side.
If you feel you have the need for a registry cleaner, then you are just as welcome to keep it. This is what we refer to an "optional fix" and is up to the user, so just take this as a recommendation from my side.

Hi,

O17 - HKLM\Software\..\Telephony: DomainName = TSL.COM
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = TSL.COM


Yes, those are ok.


Does either program list a name or location of the baddies? Are they in C:\System Volume Information?


I've attached the spyware dr log, and a screenshot of the symantec report. Seems to be something called "Koobface", and it keeps returning. Any ideas?

You appear to have a Registry Cleaner installed!


Point made, I've uninstalled it, re-booted and re-ran HiJack This. My log is attached.

Thanks for your help.

Adam

Hello, adamdkennedy
Symantec is detecting spyware doctor, and is incorrect. Spyware doctor detected non-active problems in windows' temporary files. Please run this to clear those out and let me know if problems continue.

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".
    :commands
    [EmptyTemp]
  • 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.
In your next reply, please include the following:
  • OTMoveIt3's Log

Hi,

So I followed your instructions and have included the log below. You'll know better than me if it was a success or not. Of note, there were no Symantec or Spy Doctor warnings on the re-boot. Are we good?

Thanks again for your help.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in response. So I ran the online scanner last night as requested and no threats were found (log attached). However, yesterday when I logged in the Symantec and Spyware Dr. alerts appeared again (see attached). Any other ideas?

Hello, adamdkennedy
Congratulations! You now appear clean! :thumbsup:

Are things running okay? Do you have any more questions?

System Still Slow?
You may wish to try StartupLite. Simply download this tool to your desktop and run it. It will explain any optional auto-start programs on your system, and offer the option to stop these programs from starting at startup. This will result in fewer programs running when you boot your system, and should improve preformance.
If that does not work, you can try the steps mentioned in Slow Computer/browser? Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware


We Need to Clean Up Our Mess
  • Please reopen Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Push the large "Cleanup" button
  • Allow your system to reboot
Reset System Restore
Windows' "System Restore" feature can cause malware files to be cached and retained by your system. Resetting System Restore will clean these files from your system, and will allow you to use System Restore without fear of reinfection.
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Note: You should only do this once, not on a regular basis!
You will not be able to restore computer to any earlier than today!

Recommendations
Below are some recommendations to lower your chances of (re)infection.
  • Install Spyware Blaster and update it regularly
    If you wish, the commercial version provides automatic updating.
  • Install the MVPs hosts file, and update it regularly
    You can use the HostMan host file manager to do this automaticly if you wish.
    For more information on the hosts file, and what it can do for you, you can view the Tutorial on the Hosts file
  • Install an Anti-Spyware program, and update it regularly
    Malware Byte's Anti Malware is an excellent Anti-Spyware scanner. It's scan times are usually under ten minutes, and has excellent detection and removal rates.
    SUPERAntiSpyware is another good scanner with high detection and removal rates.
    Both programs are free for non commercial home use but provide a resident and do not nag if you purchase the paid versions.
  • Keep Windows (and your other Microsoft software) up to date!
    I cannot stress how important this is enough. Often holes are found in Internet Explorer or Windows itself that require patching. Sometimes these holes will allow an attacker unrestricted access to your computer.

    If you are using Windows XP or earlier
    Visit the Microsoft Update Website and follow the on screen instructions to setup Microsoft Update. Also follow the instructions to update your system. Please REBOOT and repeat this process until there are no more updates to install!!

    If you are using Windows Vista
    • Click the "Start Menu" (or Windows Orb)
    • Click "All Programs"
    • Click "Windows Update"
    • On the left, choose "Change Settings"
    • Ensure that the checkbox "Use Microsoft Update" at the bottom of the window is checked.
    • Press OK and accept the UAC prompt.
      Note: You shouldn't need to check this checkbox every single time you update, only the first time.
    • Click "Check for Updates" in the upper left corner.
    • Follow the instructions to install the latest updates.
    • Reboot and repeat the "Check for Updates" until there are no more critical updates to install
  • Keep your other software up to date as well
    Software does not need to be made by Microsoft to be insecure. You can use the Secunia Online Software occasionally to help you check for out of date software on your machine.
  • Stay up to date!
    The MOST IMPORTANT part of any security setup is keeping the software up to date. Malware writers release new variants every single day. If your software updates don't keep up, then the malware will always be one step ahead. Not a good thing :).
