I have been infected with an insidious piece of spyware which I have failed to identify, let alone remove :thumbsup:

I have run MS Antispyware, AVG, Spybot S&D, Panda Online scan, Adaware, CWshredder and Ewido. All come back as clear yet I still get these damn popups:

Same old bleep - Poker, Viagra and Spyware removal and several similar items added to my favourites. I am considering a reformat, but thats like admitting defeat. Please help. Below is my HJT Log:

Hello robinmuir and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see no signs of viruses or malware at this time. The log is clean.

Let's run a couple of scans to see if there is anything that might not be showing up in the log.

Download PFind.zip and unzip the contents to its own permanent folder.

Important! Reboot in SAFE MODE !!

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer in Safe Mode.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the pfind.bat file and double-click it to run it. It will start scanning your computer and could take a little while so be patient. When the DOS window closes, reboot back to normal mode.

After you have rebooted start HijackThis and follow these steps:
  • Click on Config button
  • Click on the Misc Tools button
  • Check the checkbox for List minor sections (full)
  • Check the checkbox for List empty sections (complete)
  • Click on the Generate StartupList Log button
  • Click the Yes button to create the list
Post the contents of C:\pfind.txt and the information from the StartupList back here and I will review it when it comes in.

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 robinmuir. Ok, let's get rid of a bad file found in the scans.

Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it to your desktop.

Double-click on KillBox.exe to launch the program.
  • Highlight the lines below and press the Ctrl key and the C key at the same time to copy them to the clipboard:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\pxpcya64.exe

[/list]
  • Now go to the Killbox application and click on the File menu and then the Paste from Clipboard menu item. In the Full Path of File to Delete box you should see the first file. If you dropdown that box you should see the rest of them. Make sure that they are all there.
  • Click on the Delete on Reboot option and then click on the red circle with a white 'X' in to to delete the files. Killbox will tell you that all listed files will be deleted on next reboot, click YES. When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, click YES. If you get a "PendingFileRenameOperations Registry Data has been Removed by External Process!" message then just restart manually.
Your system will reboot now.

Alrighty. Remove any unwanted items from your Favorites folder and then check your browsing to see if you still get the popups and additional items added back in to your Favorites.

Cheers.

OK, I have done all that and I will see what happens over the next 24 hours.
So, what was this particular nasty and how come the usual programs didn't protect me from getting it or even detect it after I got it: How do I stop from getting it again if they can't detect it?? (I typed it into Google and nothing comes up)

Thanks again, Robin.

Hey robinmuir. Let's get a little more information here.

-What type of Internet connection do you have (dial-up, dsl, cable, etc)
-Is this computer on a network with other computers and if so is it a home network or company/school network?
-Do the popups start appearing before or after you are connected to the internet?
-If only after, what web site are you on when theis happens?
-what other programs are running when this starts?
-Are there any files-sharing applications installed on this compuer?
Has there been any files removed/deleted from this computer in the past while trying to fix this problem and if so, what were they?

Also, try installing one of these firewalls and then see if any application is attempting to connect to the Internet that you do not recognize (it might be the program responsible for the popups):Post back with the above informtion and the results from the firewall and we'll go from there.

Cheers.

I have a DSL connection on a home network using a modem/router. The popups appear before connecting to the net although the modem is "always connected".
The popups are happening even with no other programs running (apart from the usual startups) There are 4 other PCs on the network and none of them have this problem.

I have to confess to having Kazaa Lite K++ installed (but not running when the popups occur). I think this is the spyware free version and I have been using it for a year with no problems.

I dont think anything has been deleted in trying to get rid of this spyware.

Sygate is now installed and running. Just waiting for some popups and I will post anything Sygate spots.

There is activity on the firewall when these popups happen. These ads are coming from Atrivo, which is I believe a well known spyware host. If I am reading the logs correctly, it would appear that I am receiving these popups from a zombie machine, Jeff Fretwell PIRATE4X4:

outgoing logs:
64.159.87.100
64.159.87.100

pcgamessites.com[69.50.175.27] 6 occurrences
69-50-190-131.esthost.com

A Google search for Jeff Fretwell brings up www.pirate4x4.com which appears to be legitimate???

Hope this makes it easier to identify and remove this damn spyware.

Hi robinmuir. That's some interesting information. Ssome of the sites listed are CWS sites and others are porn redirects. These should have shown up in the HijackThis log but the log itself seems pretty minimal and doesn't show alot of information that should be there.

Let's try this.

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 Hoster.zip and unzip it to your desktop.

Download DelDomains.zip and unzip it to your desktop.

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

Step #2

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 #3

Start Hoster and click on the Restore Original Hosts button. Now, close Hoster.

Step #4

Locate the DelDomains.inf file on your desktop nd right-click on it. Choose Install from the popup menu and answers Yes or Ok to any further prompts to merge it into your registry.

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

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 if the problems still persist. I will review the new information when it comes in.

Ran CWShredder (latest version) and it came back clear.

Ran Hoster and restored original hosts. I am a little concerned about this one: If I am correct, did this process remove some of the protection in place from Spybot S&D? I ran Spybot and re-immunized.

DelDomains.inf installed ok.

CCleaner installed and ran ok. Rebooted. Now I am waiting to see if there are any popups.......

Hi robinmuir. The log looks petty good. I do see this ne line in there:

O1 - Hosts file is located at: C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

Which would lead me to believe that there could have been more than 1 hosts file on the machine. When you ran the Hoster program did it show that there was more than 1 hosts file available? If so then that culd hve been the source of the problem. We will have to see what happens.

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.

No, the Hosters program only showed one hosts file. I have not had any popups since my last post, but it does vary. If I go 24hrs without any popups, it would seem likely that the spyware is gone. I will post again in 24hrs or so. Fingers crossed.

Didn't get to 24 hrs! Still geting popups :thumbsup: Sygate lists the following:
newvirtualcasino.com[69.50.175.21] 3 occurrences
gamblingkey.com[69.50.175.27] 4 occurrences
sexandpoker.com[69.50.164.125]

Same IPs, same popups, with a different name.
