Hello, I hope you can help. I have been noticing suspicious activity on my computer lately. Here are the symptoms:

A. Random popups in IE. Seem to always be benign websites like news channels or survey sites, and the windows are easily closed. A minor annoyance.

B. Very slow login to user desktop from Windows welcome screen. Desktop icons take forever to appear and services/processes are very slow to start. Some services set to automatically start fail to start at all, and must be manually started. The most critical of these is the DHCP Client service that consistantly fails, and I routinely have to go and manually start it through Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Services.

C. Cannot get Windows Updates or access the Windows Update web site, neither through the links on my computer nor directly through IE and Microsoft's web pages. This seemed critical enough for me to finally seek help here.

D. Just noticed that I could not even get this post into Bleepingcomputer.com through the infected computer. It failed twice, and I had to go to another computer to get this post in.


I followed all the pre-post instructions to get the DDS logs and GMER logs. I was successful getting the DDS logs, but failed at four attempts on the GMER. The GMER scan ran twice resulting in Blue Screens of Death, and with the other two completed scans I was unable to get them saved to my desktop to include with this post. The GMER program really seemed to eat-up my computer resources so much so that at the end of the two completed scans, upon attempts to get the log saved to desktop the GMER program just seemed to time-out with "program not responding" message, and couldn't do much more of anything else with my computer but reboot. So I yet have not GMER log to post. I did see during the scan that there seemed to be some obvious rootkit activity though.

Below is the DDS.txt log and the DDS Attach.txt file is attached.

Can you help, please?

Thank you.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  1. Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  2. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  3. Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  1. Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  2. Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  3. Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  4. Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  5. Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  6. Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  7. Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.
Thanks.

Thank you for your help.

I have not re-posted or posted to any other forums for help. I know there are limited helpers, and the number of issues you are working with are numerous, so I waited patiently for a reply from someone to this original post.

Here is the RSIT log just run this morning. I noticed that it was set at "...files and records created in the last 1 month" Are we sure this goes back far enough? Also, I understood you to request the RSIT log only, that seems to include a HJT record, as opposed doing the RSIT and HJT scans seperately. Is this correct? Oh, I just noticed it generated two (2) logs, a RSIT "Info.txt" log and a HJT log. Both are posted below.

Something strange I am noticing is that, as mentioned in my original post (in item D above), I am not able to do these posts from my infected computer. When I create the post and hit the button to post the reply, it takes me to a IE "page not found" screen, similar to when I try to get my Windows Updates. I am having to create these posts and save them in a .txt file, then access the file from another computer to actually get the posts in.

Thanks again for your help.

Please download ComboFix.
Alternate Link 1
Alternate Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop.
  1. Double click on ComboFix and follow the prompts.
  2. As part of its process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it is strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  3. Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
  4. **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue its malware removal procedures.
  5. After the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:
    QUOTE
    The Recovery Console was successfully installed. Click 'Yes' to continue scanning for malware.
    Click 'No' to exit.
  6. Click Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
  7. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
  8. Notes:
    • Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
    • ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making IE the default browser.
    • ComboFix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal and increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell me.
    • ComboFix disconnects your machine from the Internet. The connection is automatically restored before ComboFix completes its run. If ComboFix runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.
Please post:
  • C:\ComboFix.txt (the log from ComboFix)
  • a new HijackThis log

Here are the Combofix log and new HJT log. I did run into difficulty on the first attempt running the Combofix. It seemed to stall and timout; I left it running for almost 2hrs, and came back to see no progress. I attempted to end the program, both directly and with Task Mgr, and neither would end it. So I turned off computer and turned back on. Ran it a second time and it seemed to complete correctly, producing this log below.

Thanks again, and I look forward to your further reply(s).

NOTE: If for some reason you are unable to complete a step(s), skip that step and continue with the rest of the steps. Please describe your problem with the step in your next reply.

Step 1

You may want to print this page. Make sure to work through the fixes in the order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Step 2

TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.

TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail. TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.
  1. Please download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.
  2. Open the file and close any other windows.
  3. It will close all programs itself when run; make sure to let it run uninterrupted.
  4. Click the Start button to begin the process. The program should not take long to finish its job.
  5. After it is finished, it should reboot your machine, if not, do this yourself to ensure a complete clean.

Step 3

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.
  1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
  2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
  3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
  4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
  5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
  6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
When you have completed the scans, if you get a report of files that cant be cleaned / deleted, make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself. Please post that list in your next reply.

Step 4

Please download Spybot-S&D and install Spybot-S&D .
  1. Be sure to UNCHECK TeaTimer when presented with the option to install. You can enable it after you are clean.
  2. Run Spybot-S&D , go to the Menu Bar at the top choose Mode and make certain that "Default mode" has a check mark beside it.
  3. Click the button "Search for Updates".
  4. If any updates are found, install them by placing a check mark next to each one and clicking "Download Updates".
  5. If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.
  6. Click on "Immunize". When it detects what has or has not been blocked, block all remaining items by clicking the green plus sign next to immunize at the top.
  7. Click the button "Check for Problems".
  8. When Spybot-S&D is complete, it will be showing RED entries, bold BLACK entries and GREEN entries in the window.
  9. Make certain there is a check mark beside all of the RED entries ONLY.
  10. Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot-S&D to fix the RED entries.
  11. REBOOT to complete the scan and clear memory.
Note: After Windows loads, Spybot-S&D may run again to clean some files that it could not clean during the prior session. Follow the same procedure.

Step 5

I recommend using SpywareBlaster.
  • Please download SpywareBlaster and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on it to install the program.
  • Follow the prompts and choose the default locations when installing the program.
  • When the program is installed, it will place an icon on your desktop.
  • Double click on the SpywareBlaster icon and you will be presented with a brief tutorial. On the first page of this tutorial, you will see some of the SpywareBlaster features
  • Click on the Next button to proceed to the second page of the tutorial.
  • If you want to purchase the software, then you should select Automatic Updating. If you do not plan on purchasing the software, then you should select the option for Manual Updating. Press the Next button.
  • At the next screen, click Finish.
  • At the next screen, Protection Status, click Enable All Protection.
  • Click Download Latest Protection Updates. This will ensure that SpywareBlaster has the latest definitions so that it can protect your browser more efficiently. You should update SpywareBlaster regularly, as much as every few days, in order to provide the best protection. Each time you update, be sure to click Enable All Protection.
Step 6

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is FREEWARE, however you may upgrade to the PRO version which contains realtime protection, scheduled scanning and updating.
  1. Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM). Alternate download link
  2. Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  3. When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  4. When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  5. Click Finish.
  6. MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  7. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from the Malware Bytes Web site. Scroll down the page until you see Latest Database; click Download from GT500.org
  8. Double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  9. On the Scanner tab, make sure the Perform Quick Scan option is selected.
  10. Click on the Scan button.
  11. If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  12. The scan will begin and Scan in progress will show at the top. It may take some time to complete; please be patient.
  13. When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully.
  14. At the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  15. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  16. When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  17. The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  18. Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
  19. Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
Step 7
  1. Please download SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) - SUPERAntiSpyware Free Version For Home Users

SUPERAntiSpyware Advice:

CAUTION: SuperAntiSpyware comes with a program called Bootsafe, do not for any reason use this program, if used on an infected computer, it could render it UNBOOTABLE.

Step 8

We need to disconnect your computer from the Internet. By doing this, it prevents any further Internet activity until the removal of malware is complete. You need to make it impossible for viruses, trojan horses, worms and spyware to call for backup once you start to dismantle them. They will continue to infect your computer with new variants while you are connected to the Internet. We also need to prevent hackers from controlling your system and they will try to prevent you from removing the pests they installed on your computer.

Close ALL browser windows (including this one). Exit all processes and items in your System tray.

According to how your computer connects to the Internet, please disconnect your computer from the Internet. Possible means of disconnecting your computer from the Internet include:
  • Physically remove the cable for your broadband Internet service Always On Connection from your computer.
  • Turn your modem off.
  • Disconnect your modem cable from your computer.
  • Turn the device off for Hand-held wireless connections.
  • Some laptops have a switch that will disconnect the laptop from the Internet.
Step 9

During the process of removing malware from your computer, there are times you may need to use specialized fix tools. Certain embedded files that are part of these specialized fix tools may be detected by your antivirus or anti-malware scanner as a RiskTool, Hacking tool, Potentially unwanted tool, a virus or a Trojan when that is not the case.
These tools have been carefully created and tested by security experts so if your antivirus or anti-malware program flags them as malware, then it is a False Positive. Antivirus scanners cannot distinguish between good and malicious use of such programs; therefore, they may alert you or even automatically remove them. In these cases, the removal of these files can have unpredictable results and unintentional results.
To avoid any problems while using a specialized fix tool, it is very important that you temporarily disable your antivirus and/or anti-malware programs before using the specialized fix tool.
When your system has been cleaned, it is important that you enable your security programs to avoid reinfection.
Please disable the following program(s):

SUPERAntiSpyware

We need to disable SUPERAntiSpyware as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.
  1. Right click on the icon in your System Tray.
  2. Click Exit
  3. Make sure that the program, SUPERAntiSpyware itself, is also closed/not running.
Step 10

Optional Fixes is the name that we use for fixes for unnecessary programs that load during startup and run in the background. These programs are not required to start automatically as you can start them manually if you need them. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Your computer may be sluggish due to the many programs loading during startup and running in the background that are not necessary. Windows has a facility for starting programs at startup time. Some of these programs are required for your computer and the applications installed on it to run correctly. A good example of such a program is a virus-checking application that must always run, constantly checking for and isolating or removing files with viruses. Other such programs are not strictly required, or are optional. In some cases, you can gain significant performance enhancements by disabling the automatic startup of these programs. In many cases, the functionality offered by the programs is still available by starting the programs manually by, for example, starting the program from the Windows Start->Programs menu. Media players and instant messaging programs often fall into this category. In fact, it is common for many modern software applications, when installed, to add programs at startup that add items to the system tray or shortcut (context) menus in Windows Explorer to provide quick access to the features and functions of these applications. While they may be useful, they do increase boot time and consume system resources. It is advised that you disable these programs so that they do not take up necessary resources or slow the boot time.

Other than ScanRegistry, SystemTray, StateMgr, antivirus program entries, and firewall program entries, very few others need to load and run.

If you decide that you want to stop the Optional Fixes in your startup, let me know and I will give you a list with instructions. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Step 11

Please download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt. Follow the instructions here for performing a scan in "Safe Mode" .
-- Post the log in your next reply.

Perform an anti-rootkit (ARK) scan with one of the following:
Before performing an ARK scan it is recommended to do the following to ensure more accurate results and avoid common issues that may cause false detections.
  1. Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug your Internet cable connection.
  2. Clean out your temporary files.
  3. Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
  4. Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
  5. After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
  6. When finished, enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.

Note: Not all hidden components detected by ARKs are malicious. It is normal for a Firewall, some Anti-virus and Anti-malware software (ProcessGuard, Prevx1, AVG AS), sandboxes, virtual machines and Host based Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS) to hook into the OS kernal/SSDT in order to protect your system. You should not be alarmed if you see any hidden entries created by these software programs after performing a scan.

Step 12

Check to see if you have insecure applications with
Secunia Software Inspector. Secunia Software Inspector:
  1. Detects insecure versions of common/popular programs installed on your computer.
  2. Verifies that all Microsoft patches are applied.
  3. Assists you in updating, patching, and protecting your computer.
  4. Activates additional security features in Sun Java.
  5. Runs through your browser. No installation or download is required.
Step 13

Please run HijackThis in Normal Mode and post a new HijackThis log so I can make sure that all the malware was deleted according to plan.

Please post:
  1. the list of file names and locations for any files that cannot be cleaned / deleted that were reported after you completed the online scans.
  2. the log from MalwareBytes
  3. the log from SUPERAntiSpyware
  4. a new HijackThis log
Please advise me of any problems you still have.

Whew, a lot of scanning done.

Below are the new HJT and MBAM logs, and here are a few notes as I have gone through the processes and steps:

A. First noticed improvements were after the ComboFix run. It seemed to cure the problem with the inability to access Windows Updates (Symptom C in my original post). Immediately I had 22 updates ready to install, so the Automatic Update started working and I was able to access Micorosoft's Windows Update web page directly. I did not install the updates yet though.

B. After running the online scans (Step 3 in your last instruction post), BitDefender seemed to find and remove only some quarantined stuff in Antivir, but ran it a second and third time, and it kept finding the same single file, indicating to me that it wasn't removing it. Since it is in quarantine, I don't know if that is a problem or not. TrendMicro Housecall found some Cookie files, and Panda's ActiveScan also found Cookie files but didn't offer option to remove.

C. I followed all the steps in your last instruction post through Step 7. Step 8 (disconnect from Internet) was pretty straightforward, but didn't seem to be needed until Step 11 (running the Dr. Web CureIt and rootkit scanners). I did not download and run Dr. Web as the web page the link took me to seemed to be all in Russian or some other cyrilic language. I downloaded and ran RootRepeal while disconnected from the web and the other scanners disabled, but didn't see what to do with the results after the scan.

D. The log from SUPERAntiSpyware revealed some embarrasing cookies (looks like someone in my family has been using my machine for some internet browsing that I will have to address within). I am not posting that log, if that is okay. It removed all the cookies. If you really need it posted, just say so.....maybe I can re-run the scan and post the clean log....LOL.

Anyway, things seem much improved. As for my symptom list in the original post, the Windows Update problem seems fixed, the slow logon to user desktop seems fixed, time will tell if I still get the pop-ups, and when I attempt to submit this post, I will see if D (unable to submit posts to forum) was fixed.

Here are my newest HJT log and MBAM log.

Your log looks good.

A Firewall is an essential part of computer security and you do not appear to have a third party software firewall running on your system. If you have one, and I missed it, please ignore this. The firewalls in Windows XP SP2 and SP3 are more effective than that in SP1, but neither filters outbound traffic (traffic going out from your computer to the Internet). In SP2 and SP3 the firewall is ON by default, but in SP1 it is OFF by default. In Vista, the firewall operates both inbound and outbound, but by default, most outbound filtering in the Windows Vista firewall is turned off.

A third party firewall is generally considered to be more effective and more configurable and usually works on both inbound and outbound traffic.

There are several firewalls that provide better protection than the Windows SP2/SP3 firewalls. Follow these steps to turn off/disable the Windows Firewall before installing a new firewall:
  1. Download the new firewall to your desktop.
  2. Disconnect from the Internet.
  3. Click Start > Control Panel.
  4. Switch to Classic View if you have not already done so.
  5. Double click on the Windows Firewall icon.
  6. Click Off (Not recommended).
  7. Install the new Firewall.
Do not attempt to run two software firewalls since like running two antivirus programs, they will possibly cause problems and conflict with each other.

There are a few firewalls available for free that appear to be good and easy to use:For more information about firewalls, and why a two-way firewall is better than the Windows XP one-way firewall, please read Understanding and Using Firewalls.

Tips To Protect Your Computer
  • Avoid clicking on links in instant messages.
  • Avoid opening email attachments.
  • Avoid visiting every poker site on the net.
  • Avoid downloading all that free cute junk.
  • Avoid using the peer-to-peer file sharing.
  • Avoid getting those handy toolbar doodads for your browsers.
  • Malware is out there just waiting to pounce on your system if you only pass by where they are lurking which may be at some seemingly innocent web site. Be careful because some of the malware are so vicious that no one can possibly save you once you let them in.
  • Remember that new malware emerges every week of the year. Take responsibility for protecting your system because you are its first and best defense.

Please take the time to read the "Steps To Keep Your Computer Clean And Secure" below.

STEPS TO KEEP YOUR COMPUTER CLEAN AND SECURE:

Please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  1. Disable and Enable System Restore. After cleaning, you will need to disable the System Restore function For Windows XP.
    Files placed in the System volume information folder are source files for the System Restore function that is available in Windows XP operating system. Files that were healed were moved in their original INFECTED state into this folder and it is necessary to DELETE them by following these steps:
    1. Close all open programs. Then right-click My Computer on the Windows' desktop
    2. Click on Properties.
    3. Click on the System Restore tab.
    4. Check Turn off System Restore on all drives.
    5. Restart the system.
    6. Enable System Restore by going through the first four steps again and uncheck the item mentioned in Step d.
    7. You can find instructions on how to disable and enable system restore in the Windows XP System Restore Guide.
  2. Make your Internet Explorer more secure: This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. 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
    5. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    6. If it asks you if you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    7. Click Apply > OK button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  3. Use a Firewall: - I cannot stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
    Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls. For more information about firewalls, and why a two-way firewall is better than the Windows XP one-way firewall, please read Understanding and Using Firewalls.
  4. Use An Antivirus Software and Keep It Updated: - It is very important that your computer has an antivirus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. It is imperative 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. For an article on antivirus programs and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
    Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
  5. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently: It is important that you visit Microsoft 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.
  6. 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:
    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer
  7. Update SpywareBlaster (at least weekly): SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer and Firec settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. An article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
    Computer Safety on line Anti Malware
  8. 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 web pages. We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain web pages. However, it can slow down certain computers. This is why using a hosts file is optional. Download mvps hosts file 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:
    1. Click the start button on the task bar at the bottom of your screen
    2. Click run
    3. In the dialog box, type services.msc
    4. hit enter, then locate dns client
    5. Highlight it, then doubleclick it.
    6. On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    7. Click OK.
  9. 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)
  10. Please read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place
  11. Please read Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers
  12. Please read Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet.
  13. If you are using Internet Explorer, 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.
    Another good browser is Opera . Opera 9 comes loaded with the tools to keep you productive and safe. Try it today, it's absolutely free. Some of the Opera features are: Customization, BitTorrent, Content blocker, Add your favorite search engines, Thumbnail preview of tabs, Widgets, Transfer manager, Tabbed browsing, Password manager, Sessions (You can save a collection of open tabs as a session, for later retrieval, or start with the pages you had open when Opera was last closed.), Keyboard Shortcuts, Cookie control, a multitude of languages, Validate code, Toggle graphics and style sheets, and Special features such as Full-screen mode, Kiosk mode.
  14. 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.
  15. If your computer was infected by a website, a program, IM, MSN, or p2p, check this site because it is Time To Fight Back.
Follow these steps and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
Good luck!
