Hello beebop and welcome to the BC forums. It appears that this log was created after booting into Safe Mode. We need a complete HijackThis (HJT) log file to be able to analyze what is happening on your computer.

Boot normally and start HijackThis. Click the Do a system scan and save a log button to perform a scan and create a log file. When the scan is complete, Notepad will open up with the log file in it. While in Notepad, press Ctrl-A to select all text and then Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard.

POST the log in this thread using the Add Reply button. Click in the data-entry window and press Ctrl-V to paste the log into the window. Add any other comments which you believe might be helpful in our analysis. and click the Add Reply button.

I will review your log when it comes in.


DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL I CHECK THE LOG, AS SOME OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.

Hi beebop. 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 Cwshredder.exe and save it to a folder of its own. Start the program and click on the Check for Update button. If an update is available then download and install it. Close the program (do not run it yet).

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

We need to remove a service so please do the following:

Part 1
  • Click Start>Run, type services.msc into the Open editbox and click the Ok button.
  • Locate the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Helper service and click the Stop button.
  • In the Startup type dropdown select Disabled.
  • Click the Apply button and then the Ok button.
  • Close the Services window
Part 2
  • Click Start>Run, type cmd into the Open editbox and click the Ok button.
  • Copy/paste the line below into the Command Prompt window and press the Enter key:
    • sc delete 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I
  • Close the Command Prompt window
Step #2

Restart in Safe Mode
  • 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 #3

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:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\emqoe.dll/sp.html#37049
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\emqoe.dll/sp.html#37049
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\emqoe.dll/sp.html#37049
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\emqoe.dll/sp.html#37049

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

Step #4

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known types option.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):C:\WINDOWS\system32\emqoe.dll
C:\WINDOWS\appgg32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\ntri32.exe

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

Run CWShredder
  • Double-click on CWShredder.exe.
  • Click "Fix ->" and click "OK" at the prompt.
  • CWShredder will scan and clean your system of CWS files.
  • Click "Next->" and then "Exit".
Step #7

Reboot normally and run at least 2 of the following on-line virus scans:Trend Micro Housecall
BitDefender On-Line Virus Scan
Panda ActiveScan
eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner
Make sure that you choose "fix" or "clean".

Step #8

  • Download and Install AdAware SE Personal, keeping the default options. However, some of the settings will need to be changed before your first scan.
  • Close ALL windows except Ad-Aware SE.
  • Click on the‘world’ icon at the top right of the Ad-Aware SE window and let AdAware SE update the reference list for the adware and malware.

  • Save the log file when it asks and then click ‘Finish’
  • REBOOT to complete the removal of what Ad-Aware SE found.
Step #9

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 OT,

It didn't quite seem to work for me. A couple of problems:

1. In hijackthis, I couldn't find some of the files, including:

O2 - BHO: Class - {A07AF77B-D77D-6EC1-E5D9-3DF793FEC740} - C:\WINDOWS\appgg32.dll.

2. I had problems with part 2 of step 1:

Copy/paste the line below into the Command Prompt window and press the Enter key:
sc delete 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I


I made it to step 7, where I rebooted, and tried to run virus scans. Sadly, when I opened IE I got pop ups :thumbsup:

Any suggestions?

Hi beebop. You are still infected so you probably will et popups. The service must be removed or it will simply change the names of all of the files and reinfect the machine.

What problems did you have with part 2 of the service removal? Did you get any error messages? We will need to repeat these steps for all of the new files involved so we will have to work this out.

Post back with the dtails of hte problems that you encountered and then we can go through it again.

Cheers.

Hey OT,

Here's what I got after Step #1: Part 1 and Part 2:

>sc delete 11Fßä^F#·ºÄÖ`I
[SC] OpenService FAILED 1060:

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.


After that, I restarted in safe mode and scanned with HijackThis. The log is below (note: I have not completed Step #3 (I did not click on "fix checked" in HijackThis).

Thanks for your help OT!

Just wondering...should I have checked and fixed the following in HijackThis?

O23 - Service: Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Helper ( 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\syswp32.exe

Thanks!

Hi beebop. Whenthe service is removed it won't show up in the log anymore. You can check it but it won't go away because it is a service.

Let's do this. We can't use a log from Safe Mode because it does not show what is running on the system Boot normally and run HijackThis. Post a new log and then do not shut down or reboot your machine until I can work up a new log. Go through all of the steps as directed in the fix no matter what happens in any of the steps and then we will see what's left.

Cheers.

Hi beebop. You are correct, it is gone. Good Job! How are things running now? 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!

Hi OT,

First off, thanks for your help.

Something wacko happened. I opened MS AntiSpyware and got a notice that my such-and-such was trying to redirect my IE home page to one similar to the about:blank page. Anywho, I blocked the redirection, closed MS AntiSpyware and opened IE. It still opened to my proper homepage - so that was a relief.

Next I ran Ad-Aware and 3 potential hijackers were identified. I went back to IE and checked out the favorites. Turns out that the 3 identified potential hijacker URLs were listed in the favorites, not to mention a folder called about_files, which contained various pages that people shouldn't visit!

Have you heard anything like this before?

Hi beebop. There are many type of infections that will attempt to add items to your Favorites. It sounds like your MS Antispyware dealt with any installation. You might want to check out our tutorial regarding keeping your IE safe. In particular, see Step 13 and set your Internet Zone settings to match the settings in the article:
