You may want to print out these directions as the Internet will not be available. Please continue with the next step if you run into a problem with the current one. Just be sure to let us know what the problem was when you reply.

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Please download About:Buster from here: About:Buster Download. Once it is downloaded extract it to
c:\aboutbuster. We will use that program later in this process.

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode and follow these steps:

Step 1:

Skip this step

Step 2:

Press control-alt-delete to get into the task manager and end the follow processes if they exist:

C:\WINDOWS\D3LN.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\IPUP.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\IEME.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\MSRX32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\APPZP32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TKCYYIO.EXE

Step 3:
Then close all programs and windows and run hijackthis. Put a checkmark next to each of these entries and press the fix button when ready:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\system\cgqvs.dll/sp.html#28129

Step 4:
I now need you to delete the following files:

C:\WINDOWS\D3LN.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\IPUP.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\IEME.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\MSRX32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\APPZP32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\TKCYYIO.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\system\cgqvs.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\JAVAYZ.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\JAVAWX.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ADDAO32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CRKH32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\JAVADR.EXE


If you get an error when deleting a file. Right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. if it is uncheck it and try again.

Step 5:

Copy the contents of the Quote Box below to Notepad.
Name the file as fix.reg
Change the Save as Type to All Files
Save this file on the desktop

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\LEGACY_<insertservicename>]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\<insertservicename>]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_<insertservicename>]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<insertservicename>]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\HSA]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SE]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SW]


Then double-click on the fix.reg file, and when it prompts to merge say yes, and this will clear some registry entries left behind by the process.

Step 6:

This is the step where we will use About:Buster that you had downloaded previously.

Navigate to the c:\aboutbuster directory and double-click on aboutbuster.exe When the tool is open press the OK button, then the Start button, then the OK button, and then finally the Yes button. It will start scanning your computer for files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so.

When it completed move on to step 7.


Step 7:
Reboot your computer back to normal mode so that we can restore files that were deleted by this infection:
  • This infection deletes the windows file, shell.dll.

    If you are using XP,2000, or NT please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system32
    %windir%\system

    If you are using Windows 98 please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll98.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system

    If you are using Windows ME please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll98.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system

  • Download the Hoster from here. Press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program. This will restore the original deleted Hosts file.

  • If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file. Go here: SDHelper.zip and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy). Then click Start > Run > regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SDHelper.dll" and press the OK button

  • If you are using Windows 95, 98, or ME it is possible that the malware deleted your control.exe. Please check for the existence of this file by going to to Merijn Files control.exe and examine where the file should be for your operating system. If the file is missing then download the appropriate file and place it in the proper place according to this information.
Step 8:

Run an online antivirus scan at:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/

Reboot and post a last log
