Posted 20 June 2005 - 12:14 PM

It seems I have two forms of spyware/hijackers that keep returning after I run Adaware, Spybot S&D and Microsoft AntiSpyware BEta1.

They are listed in the results of Microsoft AntiSpyware BEta1 as:


1. Searchextender (Spyware)
2. Possible Browser Hijack

I "fix" these problems with BEta1, but they keep coming back and after I fix them with Hijackthis, it gives me the same scan results everytime.

Problems on my computer include but are not limited to:

1. Changing my homepage
2. One pop-up about every 10 minutes even opening in Internet Explorer even if I do not have it open.
(I don't know if these are related)

Just in case someone wants to help me, I am familiar with regedit and am competent enough to backup my registry (entire or single keys) and to make changes, deletions or modifications using regedit.

Also, if anyone is really generous and sees any other problems not related to this spyware and hijacker, feel free to tell me because I believe I am becoming OCD about XP and I kinda like the challenge of trying to improve its performance and make it very clean.

(last aside, though very irrelevant. does anyone know where i can find a GOOD program for deleting all the info in my index.dat files? i can't seem to find solid reviews of the ones I've seen, but again, pretty irrelevant)

Here is my logfile for Hijackthis: (after that is my startup list)

interested in this. It seems like something I want to learn about.

Hello jeffholman and welcome to the BC forums. The log file shows an infection but I have to ask if this is the complete log. It is incredibly small.

To repair what I can see please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.
  • 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 SpSeHjfix.zip and unzip it to it's own folder. Do not run it yet.
  • Download CleanUp! and install it. Start CleanUp! and click on the CleanUp! button. Let it run to completion. It may take a few minutes depending on the size of your hard drive so be patient.
  • Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
    • 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.
  • Disconnect from the net and Close ALL OPEN PROGRAMS.
  • Run SpSeHjfix and click on Start Disinfection.
    When it's finished it will reboot your machine to finish the cleaning process.
    The tool creates a log of the fix which will appear in the folder that SpSeHjfix is located in.
  • Now run CWShredder and click on the Fix -> button.
  • Reboot and repeat the above process.
Reboot and post a fresh HijackThis log and the log that was created by SpSeHjfix.

Depending on what you are looking for in an index.dat program, Index.dat Suite is probably one of the better free ones. It allows you to review the index.dax files or remove them completely.

Cheers.

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.

thanks so much,

but i confess i screwed up. when i first posted this, it was to the wrong forum, so i just got around to posting a new topic to the correct forum, and alas, you were looking at my old one. is there anyway you could look at my new topic and we could start from there? if not, let me know, but the log i have in this post now seems to be out of date.

Hi jeffholman. Ok, that looks better. You certainly don't have much starting up when your system starts.

Let's fix the following entries and then you should reset your start pages for IE to whatever you want them to be.

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 Page = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,HomeOldSP = about:blank
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe

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

OK. Reboot your computer normally, reset your IE start pages to whatever you want and then start HijackThis. 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.

All of the items were present. I fixed and then rebooted and then changed my homepage to what I desire. Then I ran hijackthis and here is my logfile:

Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1

O23 - Service: McAfee.com VirusScan Online Realtime Engine (MCVSRte) - Mcafee.com Corporation - c:\PROGRA~1\mcafee.com\vso\mcvsrte.exe

It seems as though the problem is fixed. Thanks a million. What is the deal with the 023 entries. I'd actually like to completely remove McAfee from my system b/c I don't use it and don't have the money to pay for it. Do you know any virus scanners that are free?

I'm a little OCD about my startup scans, but does it worry you that I don't have much running, or is there something I'm missing?

Thanks for all of your help!!!! Am I officially fixed yet?

Hi jeffholman. You are officially fixed! Your log is clean. How are things running? Any problems?

It does seem odd to me that there are absolutely no startup programs or services running but every computer is differnet and every person can set their computer up just how they like it. Wouldn't it be a boring world if we were all the same. Belwo is some final steps to perform along with some information on free anti-virus programs (I use the Avast myself) and free firewalls (I use the Sygate one).

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 (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system 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!

avast and sygate both work well, but the bookmarks thing is definitely now a problem for me on firefox, and another big thing is that i use thunderbird for email and one of these two programs seems to have reset my master password because everytime i type it it just prompts me for it again. any advice?

thanks,

jeff

Hi jeffholman. No neither one of those programs will do anything directly to any program. My guess is that Sygate has not been set to give permisisonto the programs to access the internet. Any program that needs internet access will need to be given specific access to get to the internet. If not, the request for access will simply go nowhere past the firewall.

Youcan get assistance with firewall setup and configuration in the Security forum here:

thanks so much,

i did allow the programs to access the internet, but the problems persisted. Then, both programs just started working fine after the restart. My bookmarks were there and Thunderbird recognized my password.

thanks again. applause! :thumbsup:
