7. Search for these files and delete them if found:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ixn.dll <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\unw.dll <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\FMCJPW.exe <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mspaint32.exe <-- this file (note mspaint.exe is a legit Microsoft file, mspaint32.exe is bad)
C:\WINDOWS\System32\registr32b.exe <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\cnsdifep.exe <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\YFQ.exe <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\MSNGINA.EXE <-- this file
C:\DeleteAtReboot.bat <-- this file

Important info about this file !
C:\WINDOWS\System32\?vchost.exe - "?" could be any letter
There is a legit file svchost.exe file in C:\WINDOWS\System32\ folder . Don't delete this file. You should delete the non-Microsoft file. To check if it's a MS file or not, right click on the file, and select Properties: the Microsoft file description is Generic Host Process for Win32 Services.

8. Delete these folders:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WinTools\ <-- this folder
C:\Program Files\Windows SyncroAd\ <-- this folder
C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates\ <-- this folder

This is optional - only if you want to remove The WeatherBug
C:\Program Files\AWS\

9. Run AdAware, press the "Start" button, uncheck "Scan for negligible risk entries", select "Perform full system scan" and press "Next". Let AdAware remove anything it finds.

10. Clean out temporary and Temporary Internet Files. Go to Start -> Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin


11. REBOOT normally.
Perform a full scan here: Trendmicro, tick AutoClean and let him remove anything he finds.

12. Run HijackThis! again and post a new log.

Cryo,
thanks for the help so far.

i have run in to two problems.

1. when i tried to delete mspaint.exe i got an access denied message

2. when i tried to run "cleanmgr" the disc clean up would lock up while analyzing the drive.

should i go ahead and do the trendmicro scan, or is there something else i need to do?

thanks.

when i tried to delete mspaint.exe i got an access denied message

Say "Thank you!" to Microsoft ! :thumbsup:
It's difficult to delete a legit XP file, isn't it ?

I wrote in my post only mspaint32.exe is the bad file.

when i tried to run "cleanmgr" the disc clean up would lock up while analyzing the drive

You must wait a little, cleanmgr will search for the files. How long did you wait ?
Try again, WAIT, and clean the temp files (read the instructions above).

should i go ahead and do the trendmicro scan, or is there something else i need to do

Finish all the steps, and then go to Trendmicro.
When ready post a new HijackThis log.

Cryo,
I apologize for the double-posting.

Unfortunately, I am still having trouble running cleanmgr, so I have not been able to accomplish all the steps.

When i run Disk cleanup, it says it is calculating space. and at the bottom it says "Scanning: Compress Old files." but it never moves beyond that--- the progress/status bar shows three bars and never moves beyond that.

i tried it multiple times and left it running for long periods of time-- 10, 20+ minutes.

any ideas?

thanks.

Run HijackThis!, press "Scan" and tick the boxes next to all these, close all other windows and browsers, then press "Fix Checked" button.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Qicktime task] mspaint32.exe

REBOOT normally.

Log looks clean...great job ! :thumbsup:

Now that you are clean, 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 reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • 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 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
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not 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 an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive 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.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always 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.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • 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 this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

is this a different problem.
