Please someone help! :thumbsup: My computer is quickly slowing down -I purchased new Norton 09' security software, that didn't work. Ran Ad-aware upteen times - that didn't work. Cleaned up the disk, deleted what I could (drive is only 40% full), defraged, and my troubles are still worsening.........

When I search in the google or yahoo search box I get all kinds of bogus websites and can't search. Start up and hooking on to IE is getting SLOWER and SLOWER. When I go to switch users or shut down - I get three different error messages they are: ccSvcHst, hpcmpmgr.exe and DSAgnt.exe.

Someone in my house started using facebook a few months ago and we searched (on work computer) and found out about your site. I was going to just jump in and try and download ComboFix that someone on google mentioned but I can't seem to get it to come up on this computer - so I put ComboFix.exe on a jump drive but wanted to follow the rules and post for directions. Would appreciate any help. Helpless in GA.

Hi,let's get started here.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Hi there, Thank you for the thorough instructions. They were very easy to follow - I think it helped the speed of my machine. It seems a little faster but this is what happens if I put "google" in my search box:

Google(Nasdaq: GOOG)

Hi, now please run Part 1 of Smitfraudfix by S!Ri

Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

One more quick item -This may seem like a dumb question but I'm going to throw it out there for us un-educated computer users........ I am running XP and we have it set up with four users. A neighbor told me that when I run these items I should be running on all four users individually. Why would I have to do that if all the user data is on the same hard drive? Is my neighbor misinformed? Thanks.

Hello. We will need to to run SmitfraudFix, Part 2 Cleaning. Also you should run MBAM on the user accounts on the other machines now. If you find something you can post those logs. name them B,C,D or something. Malware will usually attempt to spread via network connections. I wasn't aware of the netwok. In the future you shoul disconnect the main from the network immediately and clean it.

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart anyway into normal Windows. A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Hi there, First let me say - we only have one computer and 4 users set up -(so that our files are set up seperately) so I didn't run the MBAM on other users - I will if needed. I did recently hook a laptop up to the wireless modem that this desktop uses. Am I making sense? Sorry for the confusion. I ran the #2 option in Smithfraud and renamed it because there was already another file named rapport --- below is the log report. It did not ask anything about a wininet.dll file. Not sure if you need that info. Also - when I re-booted it had changed by home page to msn which is usally yahoo and reset my clock. Not sure what else changed. I'm looking forward to my next set of instructions. Thanks - you'd make a great detective. :thumbsup:

OK. Let's only run this machine. We still need 2 more scans. first run SDFix,
Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download SDFix by AndyManchesta and save it to your desktop.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
  • (this is the drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix).
  • DO NOT use it just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Open the SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.

I have the exact same thing going on, and my time just changed to military time. My browser is also set to Yahoo but that has not changed yet. I believe that I got this several days ago (at least that's when I noticed it redirecting me to the wrong website) and it only changed the time format in the past hour. I'll keep an eye on this topic for some ideas. Good luck!

Hello Biff, I will post this here as you both may need it.

Change your time display

Go to Control Panel.
Select Regional and Language Options.
In the Standards and Formats section... next to the language you are using... click the Customize...button
Press the Time...tab.
In the Time Format...box, for 12 hour time display... change the format to:

h mm ss tt
or
hh mm ss tt

Select the other display options you want... separator, AM, PM...
When done...click Apply and OK as needed.
