Hi,

A few days ago I opened a .scr link on a friend's AIM away message (stupid, I know...I should just blame it on someone else). I started getting explorer windows with [y e a k u k z] in the title and I tried to get rid of the program using mcafee, spybot, adaware, and a number of other programs but couldn't find a way to do it. Each time I search with those programs though I find new things and I'm getting lots of popups (even with my google toolbar), so maybe the viruses/adware/other bad things are all flocking to my computer. I haven't been able to find any fixes, so now I've turned here for help as it seems others have had a similar problem.

From what I've seen it appears I need my HijackThis log for someone to help me, so I'll paste it here. I'd really appreciate some help.

Thanks a bunch,
Doug

Sorry for the repost (hopefully someone will still help me!) but I was looking at a previous post which said it was a mistake not to put HijackThis in its own permanent folder. I don't know if you need a new scan from there, but I ran it again and I'll post the log just in case (shows how much I know, right?).

Thanks again.
Doug

I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\WINNT\mxTarget.dll
C:\WINNT\systb.dll
C:\WINNT\system32\ydr.dll
C:\WINNT\system32\qtblezb.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\qtblezb.exe
C:\Program Files\BullsEye Network\
C:\WINNT\wupdt.exe

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.

I am actually currently reading a book that takes place in Princeton :thumbsup:

Rule of Four? (just a guess) I started reading that over the summer and couldn't put it down til I finished it.

I fixed the problems in HijackThis and then deleted the files you said to delete in safe mode (I deleted four--there were a few I couldn't find).

Here's my new HijackThis log. Thanks very much for the help and hope you're enjoying the book.

Yup you guess it right and its definitely an enjoyable book. In some ways I am finding it a quicker read than davinci code (which its compared to often), but that can be its own topic.

One thing that drove me nuts...at one point in the book they start talking about Dod but dont explain exactly what that is. Personally, that is a peeve of mine when a book starts talking about a location without explaining it. It drove me nuts so I started researching it :thumbsup: What is that.. a residence hall?

Is this it?

Well regardless, back to your log:

Fix these:

O2 - BHO: MxTargetObj Class - {0000607D-D204-42C7-8E46-216055BF9918} - C:\WINNT\mxTarget.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [fpxlsq] C:\WINNT\system32\qtblezb.exe

Reboot into safe mode and delete the following:

C:\WINNT\system32\qtblezb.exe

Reboot and post a last log

Yep, Dod is a dormitory (and the one in the picture). I actually lived there last year and it was funny to read about it in the book. If you're curious about the buildings, there is a "search" link from www.princeton.edu where you can get a campus map and see pictures of all the buildings. You can also as get an idea of how far (or not far) away they are. Yes, they all do exist, but it's no more than a 5-10 minute walk from Dod to anywhere else on campus (including the Street), so I can't imagine they would ever drive anywhere. Why that particular inconsistency bugs me I don't know, but overall I was impressed with how well they worked the campus into the story.

Anyway, I fixed those files on HijackThis and went to delete C:\WINNT\system32\qtblezb.exe in safe mode, but it wasn't there. Hopefully that's not a bad thing. This is my new HijackThis log. Please let me know if it worked or what I should do next. If everything is OK thank you very very much and enjoy the rest of the book.

Thanks,
Doug

Thanks for the info about Princeton :thumbsup:

Log looks clean...great job!

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • 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. ou 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.
