Dear All;

having spent whole days on telephone helplines (Dell, Symantec-Virusremoval),
my computer has been re-formated etc. leaving me with above threats which
the Symantec/Norton Virus Removal Team say they cannot remove.

My platform is WINDOWS XP SP2, Internet Explorer v. 6 SP2.

Installed anti-virus, etc. software is Spybot, Ad Aware, Norton Internet Security-Antispyware Edition, Microsoft Antispyware (beta version, incl latest updates)

I have run above software frequently, each finding different 'remaining' threats on most occasions and promising to delete them(apart from Norton which considers
Aurora & BetterInternet as a high level threat but can only 'review' not remove
them - the special removal tool on their website does not find any threats to remove ...) .
Once connected to the Internet though, my 'adware' becomes very active despite all software tools being switched on; typical messages are:

'aurareco.exe' / 'oskwelczdor.exe' / 'thnall1ac.exe' ...is attempting to connect to the internet/DNS server

Norton warns: 'A suspected security risk has been detected' , the scans invariably finding 'Adware.BetterInternet' and 'Adware.Aurora', neither of which it is able to
remove.

Generally, the computer becomes slow & unstable and my homepage keeps changing.

Once disconnected from the internet, I have frequently run above removal programs again, usually in safe mode; they find numerous threats, most of them re-incarnations of the ones I thought I had deleted the previous time.

I am by no means an expert on computers, but I do believe that I could follow the level of instructions given to other distraught computer users on this noticeboard.

I attach the HJT Log that I created prior to writing this.

Any help would be really appreciated.

All the best,
Andreas

Hello Andreas G and welcome to BleepingComputer. Let's see what we can do.

Download the trial version of ewido security suite.
  • Install ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will now open to the main screen.
  • When you run ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  • The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display ("Update successful")
  • Exit ewido. DO NOT scan yet.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates


Download CleanUp!
Install the program, don't run it yet, we will use it later.


Please download this file: Nailfix Utility, and save it to your desktop.
DO NOT run it yet.


Download APT and unzip the contents to a new folder on your desktop.

Open HijackThis and run a fresh scan. Note whether the following line still exists:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [fqkusw] c:\windows\system32\rflslbg.exe r

If not, find the current O4 - HKLM line that has random looking [name] with an 'r' at the end and substitute as appropriate in the following:

Open the folder you created for APT and double click on apt.exe
  • Search in the window for c:\windows\system32\rflslbg.exe.
  • Open your C:\Windows\system32 folder and search for rflslbg.exe.
    Don't delete it yet, just leave the system32 folder open so you can see the bad file.
  • In APT again, Select c:\windows\system32\rflslbg.exe and Click Kill3
  • Then immediately delete rflslbg.exe from your system32 folder.
Close APT.


Reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start tapping press F8 key.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.exe.
- Click "Next" in the setup, then make sure "Run Nailfix" is checked and click "Finish".
Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.


Open ewido and do a scan of your system.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
  • Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop or a location where you can find it easily.
Scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items if they still show:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [fqkusw] c:\windows\system32\rflslbg.exe r <-- or current equivalent

Close all open windows except for HJT, then click the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.


Run the CleanUp program:

*IMPORTANT NOTE*
CleanUp deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups.
If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp

Running CleanUp
  • Start CleanUp by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
  • When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
  • Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
  • Now place a checkmark next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
    • Delete Cookies
      This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies, at this point removing cookies is a good idea
    • Empty Recycle Bins
    • Delete Prefetch files
    • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click OK
  • Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
  • When asked to reboot system select No
  • Close CleanUp
Finally, restart your computer back into Normal Mode and please post a new HJT log, as well as the ewido report log from the Ewido scan by using Add Reply

Derfram,

thank you for helping me with this. It is much appreciated.

I followed your instructions to the letter; one thing didn't happen as scheduled: when I was using APT and clicked Kill3 to get rid of the current equivalent of
"04 - HKLM\..\Run: [fqkusw] c:\windows\system32\rflslbg.exe r" which was now "04 - HKLM\..\Run: [efmegz] c:\windows\system32\utcpklv.exe r" it suddenly disappeared from the C:\Windows\system32 folder - which was open in a small window - before I could delete it. Hope that's not a problem.
Everything else happened as you instructed.

I attach the Ewido Report Log and the latest HJT log.

Log looks clean...great job! I trust all is running well?

After you have used your machine a while, and are confident that all is well, we can do a little final cleanup.

Purge Restore points:

XP System Restore periodically creates a partial system backup. It is quite likely that some of the now removed malware has been 'backed up' in those files.

Disable System Restore by following the instructions here,
Reboot,
Re-enble System Restore by following the instructions here.

Run Disk Cleanup

Click on the Start button and then on Run. Type in cleanmgr then click on OK. Be sure the (C:) drive is selected and click OK. It may take a bit for "Compress old files" to complete. Check all the boxes and click on OK, then OK again.

Now that you are clean, please follow these steps in order to keep your computer safe and secure:

Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet

Glad we were able to be of help.

Thank you for your help Derfram! Much appreciated.

The UK's equivalent for the 'Humane Animal Welfare Society' is the R.S.P.C.A (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) - they have an excellent track record and will be the beneficiaries of your help.

All the Best to you & your furry friend(s) !
