Hello,

I can't see anything suspicious in your log though... Can you tell me exactly what alert Norton is giving you? What file and where the file is located? (Which folder?)
I suspect Norton is finding this in the C:\system volume Information-folder...

I got four different Virus alerts yesterday, all of them "MHTMLRedir.Exploit" and all of them automatically deleted by Norton immediately. This is what the Norton log said for each of them...

No I've never heard of it.... my pop-ups are getting worse and I had a weird thing earlier while trying to log off where I got a notice that "this computer is in use and has been locked"... I had to hard boot.

I went to Symantec.com and did the online virus scan and I think I have some new info... it said I was infected with 4 different things:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\jetsd11n.dll is infected with Spyware.Apropos.C

C:\WINDOWS\system32\qdvsasrv.exe is infected with Spyware.Apropos.C

C:\Documents and Settings\Rebecca\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\AE456EZJ\google[1].htm is infected with Adware.Istbar

and

C:\Documents and Settings\Rebecca\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\AE456EZJ\online[1].htm is infected with Adware.Windupdates

I tried to take some action on these myself but I think I'm going in circles. Symantec's removal instructions for Apropos are so complex and include so many variables that I can't seem to root it out, and Adware.Istbar doesn't even show up on my system anywhere. Symatec's website also has a removal tool for the Apropos thing but the scan came up empty. I also have a licensed copy of Norton Systemworks with the latest definitions, but it came up with nothing.

I have now tried AdAware, Microsoft Anti-Spyware Beta, Bazooka, Spybot Search & Destroy, and several others including Ewido Security Suite... nothing recognizes or helps with this. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Regarding the Istxerox that you mentioned above, there is now a Xerox folder in my Program Files folder which does not want to be deleted and which will not let me open it to see what's in it. This is some very nasty stuff.

I don't know for sure but I think I might have gotten this infection from a malicious website for song lyrics (of all things... isn't it usually porn and not something as innocent as lyrics?) at http://www.songlyricscollection.com/

Ok, let's perform next..

You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download AproposFix from here:
http://swandog46.geekstogo.com/aproposfix.exe

Save it to your desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Then please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.


Once in Safe Mode, please double-click aproposfix.exe.
This will create a new folder on your desktop called aproposfix.
Open the aproposfix folder on your desktop and run RunThis.bat. Follow the prompts.

When the tool is finished, please reboot back into normal mode, and post a new HijackThis log, along with the entire contents of the log.txt file in the aproposfix folder.

So, you already did use aproposfix before. Did you use it in safe mode as instructed? Because otherwise it won't find and delete what we need. Also, do you still get alerts?

Please perform next as well..

* Perform an onlinescan with panda: (please use this scanner instead of any other scanner!)
Panda Online
- Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
- A new window will open...click the Check Now button
- Enter your Country
- Enter your State/Province
- Enter your e-mail address and click send
- Select either Home User or Company
- Click the big Scan Now button
- If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
- It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
- When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
- When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
Post the contents of the Panda scan report.

By the way..
The current formatting of your log makes it difficult to read, so in notepad:
On top, click Format >uncheck Word Wrap.

So, you already did use aproposfix before. Did you use it in safe mode as instructed? Because otherwise it won't find and delete what we need. Also, do you still get alerts?


Yes, I did it in Safe Mode as instructed and my pop ups seem to be gone now. The Panda Scan revealed this...


Incident Status Location

Adware:Adware/WUpd No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Troy\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\D39U6MJA\init[1].js

Good,

This one is in your Temporary Internet Files, so perform next:

1) Open Internet Explorer and click on Tools
2) Click on Internet Options
3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files

Perform a full scan with an updated Adaware SE and/or Spybot S&D to get rid of some leftovers if still present.
If you don't have those programs yet, you can find the downloadlocations in my sig.

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

If you are having XP SP2, read here how to configure Security Features for Internet Explorer:

:flowers: That's what I thought. You know in America, anybody who looks like you is more into Cosmopolitan and Glamour than computer stuff. I was quite surprised to find out who was helping me solve my computer issues. Brains and beauty... a double threat!

Thanks agin.
