Hello LadyLynx,

Please confirm that you have run the following scans or run them now. :thumbsup:
Save any logs that you generate - we may need them later.
Do not post any logs unless I ask you.

***************************************************

Please download, update and run (one at a time of course!)
Spybot 1.4 and Adaware SE 1.06.r1

Fix whatever they suggest.

***************************************************

If you need help running these tools, here are some helpful tutorials.
Spybot Tutorial
Adaware SE Tutorial


***************************************************

Be sure to run Adaware SE with a Full Scan in the Safe Mode.

How to Reboot into Safe Mode
tap F8 key during reboot, until the boot menu appears...use the arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode" from the menu......,then press the "Enter" key.



The following explains how to set Ad-aware's settings to perform a "Full Scan."

In Ad-aware click the Gear to go to the Settings area.

The following items should be on a green check, not on a red X.

Under the Scanning button:
Scan within archives
Under Memory & Registry, Check EVERYTHING
In Check Drives & Folders, make sure all of your hard drives are selected

Under the Advanced button, check ALL under Log detail level.

Under the Tweak button...

Some of these may not be an available option, depending on your version of Ad-aware and your version of Windows. Do not be concerned if you cannot select a certain item.

In Scanning Engine:
Unload recognized processes during scanning
Include info about ignored objects in logfile, if detected in scan
Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
Include used command line parameters in logfile

In Cleaning Engine:
XP/2000: Allow unloading explorer to unload shell extensions prior to deletion
Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
UNCHECK: Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion

Click Proceed to save these settings. When you would like to perform a "Full Scan," switch the scan mode from SmartScan to Custom.



***************************************************

Please follow the instructions provided, you may want to print out these instructions and use them as a reference.

First:
Please download ewido security suite it is a free version of the program.
  • Install ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will now open to the main screen.
  • When you run ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!".  Click OK.  We will fix this in a moment.
  • You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  • The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates


Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Boot to the Safe Mode
    tap F8 key during reboot, until the boot menu appears...use the arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode" from the menu......,then press the "Enter" key.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**
    • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close ewido security suite.
**(Ewido for example has been flagging parts of AVG Anti-Virus, pcAnywhere and the game "Risk")


***************************************************


I know you may have anti-virus software, but sometimes its definitions are corrupted due to malware. Online scans are the best resort in this case.
Run this pc through the
Trend Micro Housecall Online virus scanner
or
Panda Scan Online virus scanner

Let it remove whatever it finds. If it cannot delete it, then let me know the names an locations and we will delete it manually.

***************************************************

Next, reboot and post the Ewdio scan log, and a fresh HijackThis log to this thread.
If I've saved you time & money,
please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you! You can donate using a credit card and PayPal. Thank you!

Hello LadyLynx,

I have to check, are you sure you ran Ewido in the Safe Mode? It should have taken out AltNet when run from the Safe Mode. Running Ewido from the normal mode will not work.
If you did not run it from the Safe Mode, then please boot to the Safe Mode and run it. :thumbsup:
Let me know one way or the other.

Let's look in a different place for signs.

Open HijackThis
Go to ‘config
Go to ‘misc tools’
Press the button ‘open uninstall manager’
Press 'save list'
A notepad file will open.
Post the content here in your reply.
Close HijackThis.

Hello LadyLynx,

I don't see Altnet installed on your computer. :thumbsup:

You can delete the registry keys manually, but these are harmless !!

If you want to delete the registry keys then continue.

It is strongly recommended that you back up the registry before making any changes to it.

Backing up the Windows registry

Go to Start --> Run, and type regedit in the Open box, then click OK

Navigate to this key and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altnet <-- this key
If I've saved you time & money,

Well for crying out loud. I've been trying to delete it from the registry for months, it keeps telling me there was an error while trying to delete. Maybe it's because it's not actually in my system anymore. If it's harmless just sitting in my registry I won't worry about it anymore. WHEW...thank you very very much for your time an patience. :thumbsup:

Hi LadyLynx,

I've been trying to delete it from the registry for months, it keeps telling me there was an error while trying to delete. Maybe it's because it's not actually in my system anymore. If it's harmless just sitting in my registry I won't worry about it anymore.


It is in the system, but it is an reminent of an infection and harmless. :thumbsup:

If it still bugs you, you might try this:
If any of the above registry keys are giving you problems deleting, right click on them and click on Permissions. Then click on the Advanced button. Make sure the first box (Inherit from parent...) is checked. Click OK and OK. Then try deleting the entry again. Once you're done, close the Registry Editor.

You log looks clean. :flowers:

Lets clean your System Restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows.
The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files.
This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)

1. Turn off System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK

2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

System Restore will now be active again.


Please read and follow Groovicus' Guide to Simple PC Security to help keep yourself from becoming infected again.
