I want to thank you guys for having a site that can deal with these problems.

I have a Smitfruad-C comes up in Spybot that cant be removed. I also noticed a few processes running that i haven't seen before, one is mssearchnet.exe i believe, possibly others but thats the one that stands out. Also saw a mscornet.exe that came up also.

I have read your Preparation Guide and done all of the items that you recommend. My XP firewall is up and i use AVG for a virus scanner. I run Spybot and MS Antispyware regularly, here is my HijackThis log file.

Thanks

Hi and Welcome to bleeping computer!! Posted Image

My name is David Posted Image

Please do both of the following before we start if possible!:

1) Please print off these intructions - they will be needed later when internet access is not available.
2) Save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above.

There is a bit to do on the log - i can almost guaruntee ewido will remove something - it's also a good free tool to keep in your arsenal! :thumbsup:

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 may 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")
    ewido manual updates
Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
  • Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
  • 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 or a location where you can find it easily.
Close ewido security suite.

Post a new HJT log and the ewido log at the end! :flowers:
David

:thumbsup: Click here to download smitRem.zip.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Unzip smitRem.zip to extract the files it contains.
  • Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in safe mode.
:flowers: Boot into Safe Mode
By pressing the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer
beep when you reboot it (some versions of windows will display 'Starting Windows' with a grey progress bar)
you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode.

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HiJackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan

David

The online scanner you linked did not find any viruses and came up with no logfile to save for you.

With IE closed, run Hijack This again.
Put a checkmark on these entries and hit "fix checked":

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

Now post a new HJT log and tell me how your computer feels. Looks clean to me after these entries are gone.

Well i'm glad that you feel that everything is back to normal! :thumbsup:

Posted Image Congratulations! Posted Image
You have a clean Log. Sleep soundly .........after you do the following :-

Enable restore points
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
  • ClickOK.
I recommend you regularly visit the Windows Update Site , your lagging behind on a few of them!
  • Lots of Hacking/Trojans use the methods found (plugged by the updates) that have not been stopped by people not updating.
  • Update your machine, and they have one less helper, and you have one less headache! :up:
  • Update ALL Critical updates and any other Windows updates for services/programs that you use.
  • You may find it easier to have windows automatically update! Here is a nice little article about turning on automatic updates
  • Note that it will download them for you, but you still have to actually click install.
  • Of course, you can always download updates seperately at: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
Secure your web browser
  • Open Internet Explorer and click on the Tools menu and then click on
    Options.
  • Click onSecurity
  • Click the Internet icon
  • Click onCustom Level.
  • 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
  • Change the Allow paste operations via script to Disable
  • Click on OK
  • Save (if asked).
  • Click on Apply button
  • Click on OK

Alternatively you could use another browser such as
Mozilla Firefox
Opera or
Netscape


Get Some Protection
The following programs are useful in the fight against Malware. Best of all, they're FREE.
Download and install any or all . Be warned though ---- Unless you keep them regularly updated you are living with a false
sense of security.
  • Ad-Aware SE - This is a
    program that scans for and removes known spyware from your machine.
  • Spybot Search &
    Destroy
    -Similar to Ad-Aware but more configurable and incorporates Teatime, a memory resident utility that protects the system
    registry. I recommend use both of these in tandem.
  • Spyware Blaster -
    Prevents the addition of ActiveX Controls on your machines by
    isolating the system registry.
  • IE_Spyad - Uses the inbuilt IE restriction policy to stop your browser
    from opening web pages in a much enhanced list of undesirable addresses.
    Tutorial
A good antiviral program is essential.AVG is one of the better known, and trusted, antivirals.

And Finally.........Lock the door with a Firewall . XP comes with its own simple firewall but I prefer to substitute it with
ZoneAlarm.

Glad i could help. Spread the work of BleepingComputer! :flowers:

David
