I don’t see any sign of WildTangent in your HiJackThis log. You can check to see if it is in the add/remove programs. If it is, you can remove it there.

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.

As for OrbitExplorer, the latest updates of Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware can remove all Xupiter variants.

How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= Please check this link for instructions on how to download, install and then use AdAware. Run this program as soon as possible.
How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= Please check this link for instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot S&D. Run this as soon as possible as it may catch things that AdAware misses.

We need to fix this with HiJackThis.

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan." Place checks next to the following entries (make sure not to miss any):

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Please post a new HiJackThis log. Let me know of any problems you are still having.

Hi again,
Yes, I have adware and spybot. Spybot is not working correctly right now, so I downloaded a couple of other scanners. I have been scanning, deleting etc.
I have not done the "clean all temp files" download yet. There are some things I want to keep on there. I did find an executable file with double extentions that concerns me. " Jav7241.TMP.exe " That is still there. I am trying to find how to delete that without hurting my computer. I have some old adware/spyware in the spybot
archives zipped from previous scans. I am guessing I can delete those, but will read the information before I do.
This is what I have been able to do: I have cleaned IST and Yes bar out. Wild tangent is not in my programs add/remove file anymore. It was, but not anymore. It is still on my computer under my explorer however. Is it a concern? I read about it, and it did not seem to be too harmful...but what do I really know. Then, why would it disappear from my add/remove programs?
After clearing my cache...Temp files etc. Manually, I went to look through them and I saw a black box with a green face in it called "hacker(3).exe" Not there before. As I was trying to look up information about that file, it disappeared right before my eyes.
I am feeling a bit paraniod now. (duh)
I have also been watching my ports, but I am not sure I understand it intirely either. I believe I got rid of back door. I found it using a different scan from adware.

I have been trying to do what I can to understand how to combat these issues. As much research as possible. Looks like (obviously) I need to do more.

Let me know if you can help anymore!
Yes, I have adware professional on my computer...do not know why it does not show up below.
thank you very much,
Cyber

I have not done the "clean all temp files" download yet. There are some things I want to keep on there. I did find an executable file with double extentions that concerns me. " Jav7241.TMP.exe " That is still there. I am trying to find how to delete that without hurting my computer


I may be misunderstanding you. Does the above mean that you are leaving files in the recycle bin as a way to store the files? If it does, you should get out of that habit for several reasons:
  • By default, the Recycle Bin uses approximately 10% of the available space on your hard drive so when you exceed this amount, the Recycle Bin will automatically delete files to make room for new ones by applying a first-in, first-out process.
  • If you choose to delete a file that exceeds the size of the space left in the Recycle Bin, Windows will NOT place it into the Recycle Bin and you cannot recover the file.
  • Adware and virus installers hide within the temporary folders.
  • Files can quickly clutter your computer and slow down its performance.
If you need to have a holding place, simply create a folder on your hard drive and call it something like “Hold”. That way, you can keep the files until you are ready to delete them or decide to keep them by placing them into a file on your drive.

To find the Jav7241.TMP.exe, use this procedure. You can use it to clean out your temporary files too if you had rather do it that way than use a tool like CleanUp!
  • For best results reboot your computer before performing this procedure.
  • Begin by clicking on your Start Button.
  • Then click on Search, then For Files or Folders.
  • Ensure that the Look in: box is pointing to your C: Drive and not just a single directory.
  • In the Search for files or folders named: box, type in *.TMP
  • That's the Star symbol - with a Period - followed by the TMP extension.
  • Then click on the button entitled Search Now.
  • Your computer will do a search for all files that end with the .TMP file extension.
  • They will be listed in the right side area of the screen with their Name and Folder location.
  • Then click on the word Edit, which is contained in your top tool bar area.
  • This will pull down a menu for you to now click on Select All.
  • All these .TMP files on you hard drive will become highlighted.
  • Now simply press the delete key on your keyboard to wipe out these temporary files.
  • All the files formally contained in the right side area of the screen will become empty.
  • And Windows will state that the Search is complete. There are no results to display.
  • Then close the Search Results window to return back to your Windows session.
A Firewall is an essential part of PC security and you do not appear to have one running on your system. There are a few available for free that have excellent reputations:
Zone ALarm Free Firewall

Kerio Free Firewall

An anti-virus program is an essential part of PC security and you do not appear to have one running on your system. There are a few available for free that have excellent reputations:

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition

Avast

BitDefender Free Edition v7

Your log appears to be clean. Please advise me of any problems you still have.

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 enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.
    You can find instructions on how to disable and enable system restore here:
    Managing Windows Millennium System Restore

    or
    Windows XP System Restore Guide
  • 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 Initialise 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 asks you if 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 IE-SPYAD Install IE-SPYAD. Add another level of protection to your Internet Explorer browser by blocking certain sites that are known to contain malware. IE-SPYAD puts several thousand sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. If you happen on a site within its list, they can't hijack you or install anything. Program is free and is updated about once a month. Please follow readme instructions for install; it is a little different. Single user PC use IE-Spyad1. Multi user XP PC use IE-Spyad2.
  • Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software, then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit Microsoft’s Windows Update regularly. This will ensure your computer has 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.
  • You should scan your computer with Spybot S&D on a regular basis just as you would an anti- virus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  • You should scan your computer with Ad-Aware as well as Spybot S&D and your anti-virus program on a regular basis. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  • Use the hosts file:
    Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them. In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages. We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages. However, it can slow down certain computers. This is why using a hosts file is optional.
    Download it HERE. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial HERE If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    • Click the start button on the task bar at the bottom of your screen
    • Click run
    • In the dialog box, type services.msc
    • hit enter, then locate dns client
    • Highlight it, then double-click it.
    • On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    • Click ok.
  • Use an alternative instant messenger program.Trillian and Miranda-Im These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Please read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place
  • Please read Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers
  • Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from HERE
  • 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 these steps and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Good luck!
