Hello,

When I turned on my computer today, it asked me to activate Windows. Even after I had activated Windows, I got the message that Windows was activated but it would not boot up. I could only get into Windows via SAFE MODE. Not sure if I've been Hijacked. Below is a HijackThis log as well as a DDS log. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks !

P.S. I mainly use Firefox as my browser with some limited use of Internet Explorer.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  • Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  • Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  • Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  • Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  • Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.
Thanks.

Hello Sue,

Thanks so much for your help. It's greatly appreciated !

Since my first post, I did have success in finally getting past the Windows activation.
However, I seem to be running somewhat slower thatn normal when bringing in webpages via
the internet. I've run Ad-Aware, Spybot, AVG Anti-Virus (all came back as my PC being clean)
and I regularly use Crap Cleaner.

Below is an updated HijackThis log along with RSIT as you requested.

Once again, my thanks to you for your assistance to me.

Joe

IIlegal Copies Of Software

O20 - Winlogon Notify: Antiwpa - antiwpa.dll (file missing)

Entries in your log indicate that you are running software which circumvents Windows Activation or Validation which implies that your copy of Windows is illegal. I know that some people actually do not know their Windows copy is illegal--it is a used computer or bought from unscrupulous vendors, etc. Beside the legal and moral position, cleaning your computer could be a waste of time as further infection is highly likely since you cannot receive and install all the Windows updates to patch the security holes, etc. A pirated version may receive critical updates via automatic update; however, the individual who is knowingly using a pirated operating system fails to consider that not every update falls into the critical classification. The "non-critical updates" will not be automatically downloaded, yet some of these will still be needed. Eventually, you will run into trouble. Antiwpa.dll is a prohibited software crack which is used to avoid the Windows’ copy protection. This file, to start automatically makes use of the Winlogon Notify key. The key runs definite programs when particular actions happen like the starting up of the computer, logging in and logging off by the user or when a computer is shutting down.
  • Bank robbers get out of the bank after stealing some money, jump in the getaway car. Around the corner, they run into a road block and are carted off to the Judge.
  • The Robbers are convicted of stealing in one of its forms and the driver of the getaway car is convicted of 'Aiding and Abetting' the robbers in their crime.
  • We are in a similar position to that driver of that getaway car; if we assist a criminal (the person who is breaking the law) with his crime, we are then "Aiding and Abetting" that crime.
  • If you have an illegal copy of MS Windows (any version - or any other software) and we find out, we will not be able to assist you with your problems until you have purchased a legal copy of that software.
  • Please do not take this as an assault on you individually.
  • I will be happy to help you with any problems after you install a legal copy of the Windows Operating System.
