Hello, recently my computer was infected with a fake anti-spyware program, i think, it was called spyware 2010, or something along the lines, i ran malware bytes, restarted, then super anti-spyware. When my computer started back up, the program was gone, but it refuses to let me update any of my spyware programs. Now it keeps crashing my web browser.
Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

This is the cause of your problem:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=127.0.0.1:5555

So please start HijackThis, click scan and check above entry.
Then click the Fix checked button below.

Let me know if that solved it.

I ran the scan and removed it, when I restarted my computer, it ended up coming back. This is my log file after restarting:

Hi,

I see you have Viewpoint installed...
Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article: http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546
I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.
  • Viewpoint
  • Viewpoint Manager
  • Viewpoint Media Player
Then,

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=127.0.0.1:5555
O21 - SSODL: yiwidubit - {df68a95b-05ab-45a4-a805-83c5cceb3aed} - (no file)
O22 - SharedTaskScheduler: gahurihor - {df68a95b-05ab-45a4-a805-83c5cceb3aed} - (no file)


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked

Then, Open Internet Explorer: Tools Menu -> Internet Options -> Connections Tab ->Lan Settings >
Under proxy settings below, click the advanced button and remove everything in there (127.0.0.1:5555)
Then go back to the previous screen and uncheck "use a proxy server".

Glad I could help. smile.gif

Please read my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.
And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.
Extra note: Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run the Secunia Software Inspector Scan.

Happy Surfing again!
