Hello

This is my first post so apologies if I get anything wrong!

I'm having problems with my Internet connection. I run Windows 98 and dialup access. Within 5 minutes of opening IE and connecting to the Internet, my modem keeps disconnecting and attempting to dial another number.

I looked at the Task Manager process list when the connection was being hijacked and it showed a strange process - svchos1at.
Did some digging on the web and this seems to refer to a hijacker called svchos1at.exe. I found this file in my C:\Windows file (it's about 10kb).

I tried cleaning the PC with AVG 7.0.322 and Ad Aware SE but nothing seemed to work.

Would like get rid this but not sure how to do it.
Any help would be much appreciated! :thumbsup:

My HJT log is below but was run offline when the svchos1at process was not running.

Welcome conneri to Bleeping Computer.

download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

***

Download CW-Shredder at the link below:
http://cwshredder.net/bin/CWShredder.exe
Update CWShredder
  • Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
  • Click Check For Update
  • Close CWShredder
***

Boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

***

Now run CWShredder. Click I Agree, then Fix and then Next, let it fix everything it asks about.

***

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O2 - BHO: CDllBho Object - {5A5B6916-ED71-4531-8018-E792DD44156E} - C:\WINDOWS\DD.DLL

O9 - Extra button: Related - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Show &Related Links - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm[/B]

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

***

Please double-click Killbox.exe to run it.

Select "Delete on Reboot".
Place the following line (complete path) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox:
c:\windows\svchos1at.exe
Put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot"
Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

Reboot the computer to normal mode.

Try connection, let me know what happends. Try making a log using HijackThis while you are online if this bad guy returns.



You really, really, really need to get the critical updates from Microsoft

Thanks g2i2r4

Took all your advice and my system has been running for 2 weeks with no problems!

(ashamed) I even got round to applying the Windows patches that I REALLY should have sorted out years ago!

Thanks for all the good advice and patience. Would thoroughly recommend this website to anyone else

Thanks for the feedback, good to hear everything if ok now. :thumbsup:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • 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. You 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:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

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

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
