Posted 27 July 2005 - 02:05 PM

Hello, I'm one of those people who ran internet explorer far too long before finding firefox and have plenty of junk on my computer. As of late some of the stuff I have on my PC has caused random freezing, sometimes without any applications running at all (and even at the user select/log-on screen!) and also random viruses infesting my computer when have nothing running but a screensaver. I ran Norton AV, Spybot: S&D, and Ad-aware 6.0 before getting this log. I cleaned out a good bit of stuff, one thing manually being EbatesMoeMoneyMaker which has been causing issues for a while, but I think I managed to get rid of that.

I'm hoping you can help me out with rooting out the garbage on my PC. Thanks lots in advance! :thumbsup:

Hello Astaroth131 and welcome to the BC malware forum. After reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

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

Step #2

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.
Step #3

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 Bar = http://websearch.drsnsrch.com/sidesearch.cgi?id=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://websearch.drsnsrch.com/sidesearch.cgi?id=

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

Reboot normally and run at least 2 of the following on-line virus scans:Bitdefender <<<Add a check by 'Autoclean'.
RAV <<<Add a check by 'Autoclean', leave everything else as is.
eTrust <<<'Cure' whatever is found, then delete if unsuccessful
Housecall <<<Put on 'Autoclean' and delete what it can't clean.
Panda ActiveScan <<<Accept default settings
If there are any files that cannot be automatically disinfected or quarantined then you will need to delete them manually.

Step #7

AdAware SE v1.06

Download, install, update, configure and run a scan with Ad-aware SE v1.06:
  • Download and Install AdAware SE Personal, keeping the default options. However, some of the settings will need to be changed before your first scan.
  • Close ALL windows except Ad-Aware SE.
  • Click on the‘world’ icon at the top right of the Ad-Aware SE window and let AdAware SE update the reference list for the adware and malware.
  • Once the update is finished click on the ‘Gear’ icon (second from the left at the top of the window) to access the preferences/settings window:
    • In the ‘General’ window make sure the following are selected in green:
      • Under Safety:
        • Automatically save log-file
      • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
      • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
    • Under Definitions:
      • Prompt to update outdated definitions - set the number of days

    • Under Driver, Folders & Files:
      • Scan Within Archives
    • Under Select drives & folders to scan:
      • choose all hard drives
    • Under Memory & Registry: all green
      • Scan Active Processes
      • Scan Registry
      • Deep Scan Registry
      • Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
      • Scan my Hosts file
  • Click on the ‘Advanced’ button on the left and select in green:
    • Under Shell Integration:
      • Move deleted files to recycle bin
    • Under Logfile Detail Level: all green
      • include addtional object information
      • DESELECT - include negligible objects information
      • include environment information
    • Under Alternate Data Streams:
      • Don't log streams smaller than 0 bytes
      • Don't log ADS with the following names: CA_INOCULATEIT
  • Click the ‘Tweak’ button and select in green:
    • Under ‘Scanning Engine’:
      • Unload recognized processes during scanning
      • Scan registry for all users instead of current user only
    • Under ‘Cleaning Engine’:
      • Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
    • Under Log Files:
      • Include basic Ad-aware SE settings in logfile
      • Include additional Ad-aware SE settings in logfile
      • Please do not check: Include Module list in logfile
  • Click on ‘Proceed’ to save the settings.
  • Click ‘Start’
  • Choose 'Perform Full System Scan'
  • DESELECT "Search for negligible risk entries", as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.
  • Click ‘Next’ and Ad-Aware SE will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected and clean automatically.
  • If Ad-Aware SE finds bad entries, you will receive a list of what it found in the window
  • Right-click on the list and choose Select All
  • Click the Next button to finish removing the items that were found
  • When finished, REBOOT to complete the removal of what Ad-Aware SE found
Step #8

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 I will review it when it comes in.

Hi again, it's me. I know it's been forever since you posted your steps to completion but due to work and other stuff I've had to do, I haven't had a chance to get back to you.

I encountered a number of problems with the steps you gave me to help clean up my PC. Here's how things went:

3) Fix items in hijack this in safe mode:

The following items were not in the list to fix:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://websearch.drsnsrch.com/sidesearch.cgi?id=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://websearch.drsnsrch.com/sidesearch.cgi?id=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = websearch.drsnsrch.com/q.cgi?q=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = proxy.pit.adelphia.net:8080
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O8 - Extra context menu item: Web Savings - file://C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates\System\Temp\ebateswebsavings_script0.htm
O8 - Extra context menu item: Web Rebates - file://C:\PROGRAM FILES\WEB_REBATES\Sy1150\Tp1150\scri1150a.htm
O9 - Extra button: Ebates - {6685509E-B47B-4f47-8E16-9A5F3A62F683} - file://C:\PROGRAM FILES\EBATES_MOEMONEYMAKER\Sy350\Tp350\scri350a.htm (HKCU)

I did, however, fix the remaining items successfully.

5) Run CCleaner:
I cannot run this program for some reason, in safe mode or normal mode. I get an error "Run time error '0'" and the application will not start.

6) Run 2 or more virus scans:
I got Panda ActiveScan to work, but the others all seem to freeze the computer a small part of the way into the scan. I'll continue trying the others in the list though. I'm mostly trying to make sure my post is not forgotten about while I try to run AV programs overnight and wondering if they will freeze or not. :thumbsup:

7) Run AdAware SE v1.06:
I ran this program with the settings as you asked. I got the list up and selected all the items and hit next. My computer froze on the "quarantining selection" screen. In the control/alt/delete menu it was not responding, in addition to "CcApp".


Those are the issues I had with your steps. Here's to hoping you can continue to help me. :flowers: Once again I gotta throw out my appreciation for you and all the other guys who do this for free. With that said, here is a fresh list of Hijack this:

Hi Astaroth131. The items listed as not being found are still showing in the latest log. I did not, however, ask that these items be removed:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = proxy.pit.adelphia.net:8080
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost

Those are valid system settings and if removed you will lose some or all of your internet connectivity. Only remove items that are in the list of things to remove.

Now, let's go through the steps again.

Step #1

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 Bar = http://websearch.drsnsrch.com/sidesearch.cgi?id=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://websearch.drsnsrch.com/sidesearch.cgi?id=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = websearch.drsnsrch.com/q.cgi?q=

Also, let's just remove all of the 016 items while we are at it

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

Step #2

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known types option.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates\ <--folder
C:\PROGRAM FILES\WEB_REBATES\ <--folder
C:\PROGRAM FILES\EBATES_MOEMONEYMAKER\ <--folder

Note: If you receive any error messages while trying to delete any of the above files/folders then reboot into Safe Mode and try to delete them again. See the instructions below on how to boot into Safe Mode.
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as 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.
If you rebooted into Safe Mode just stay in Safe Mode until I tell you to reboot normally.

Step #3

Start CCleaner and click on the Run Cleaner button in the lower right-hand corner. When it is finished close CCleaner.

Step #4

Reboot normally and run at least 2 of the following on-line virus scans:Bitdefender <<<Add a check by 'Autoclean'.
RAV <<<Add a check by 'Autoclean', leave everything else as is.
eTrust <<<'Cure' whatever is found, then delete if unsuccessful
Housecall <<<Put on 'Autoclean' and delete what it can't clean.
Panda ActiveScan <<<Accept default settings
If there are any files that cannot be automatically disinfected or quarantined then you will need to delete them manually.

Step #5

If you do not already have Ad-Aware SE 1.06 then follow these download and setup instructions: Ad-Aware SE Setup. Otherwise, just check for updates.

Start Ad-aware SE, click the Start button and choose Perform Full System Scan. Click the Next button and wait for the scan to complete. If anything was found, right-click on the list and choose Select All and remove all it finds.

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 I will review it when it comes in.

Ok, I don't know why things were different this time but I had a lot more success in following your steps. All the items in HJT that you asked me to remove were removed. Those others were only there in my post as a copy and paste error, I assure you I'm not touching stuff I don't know what is. :thumbsup:

I reinstalled CCleaner and it worked this time, so I ran it. I also ran eTrust, RAV, Panda ActiveScan and lastly AdAware SE with your settings.

Here's the only problem/question I have though: What kind of files are in C:\_RESTORE or C:\_RESTORE\ARCHIVE ? Both Adaware SE and the virus scans found numerous (low hundreds) of things in these files, all in the format FSXXXX.cab where the Xs are numbers. What do files in that folder do, and should I worry about the viruses and the like in them? None of the programs you asked me to run were able to fix or delete the viruses/malware found in that folder.

My computer does seem to be feeling better lately, with far fewer lockups and the like. Here's the latest log:

Hi Astaroth131. This log is clean. Good job! How are things running now? Any problems?

The files in the Restore areas are part of the System Restore. Although other programs can see them the operating system will not allow any other programs to touch them. These are used for restoring your system to a previous time if problems occur. Now that the log is clean we will clean those restore points out and set a new one in the directions below.

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

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 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.Right-click My Computer and then click Properties.
On the Performance tab, click File System
On the Troubleshooting tab, click to select Disable System Restore
Click OK twice.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn on System Restore.Right-click My Computer and again click Properties
On the Performance tab, click File System
Clear the check mark in Disable System Restore check box.
[/list]
System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend 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 already have a good anti-virus, and you should also have a good firewall for blocking unwanted access to and from your computer. These also are free for personal use:It is best 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 Microsoft Windows Update monthly. Microsoft puts out new updates on the 2nd Tuesday of every month so be sure to check regularly.

And to keep your system clean be aware of what emails you open, what websites you visit, and update and run these free malware scanners once a week: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!

So far I have had no random lockups, viruses, or any of the general problems I had before. Taking a glance at the Ctrl+Alt+Del menu I don't see any Ebates or anything else suspicious. Maybe it's just me but I think the PC is running just a wee bit faster too.

I reset the restore points like you said and it had a sweet side bonus to clearing out infected backup files: I got 5 GB of space back on my harddrive! :thumbsup: Apparently they've been accumulating forever now.

Looks like I'm clean and good to go. I'll look into some of those additional programs to try out as well as run the usual weekly virus scans and the tag team duo of AA:SE and SB:S&D. I'll do what I need to in order to keep my computer from getting back to the way it was. I think you can call this a case closed. Thanks lots for the help! :flowers:

You're very welcome Astaroth131. I'm glad that we could help.

Now that your malware issues have been resolved I will close this topic. If you need it reopened for this same issue then please PM me. If you have any new issues in the future then please start a new topic.

Cheers.

Keep on computing!
