I found a dialer with Adaware today - columbine dialer and it was nested here:

COULOMB DIALER

obj[1]=File : C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\Xtras\download\TheGrooveAlliance\3DGrooveXtrav181\Groove.x32


I just want to make sure everything is on the up and up. I use Spyweeper and AVG plus SpyBot & AdAware and the occassional TrendMicro HouseCall.

On a side note - housecall can take hours to scan and now Spybot is the same way S&D - over two hours now scanning. I have p4 2.8, 1gb ram, 240gb raid 0 - it's quick. So why so slow on the scanning?

Yes I am new to this forum and have heard good things!

THanks!!!!! :thumbsup:

Hello orion6192,

It looks like you have RAID on your computer, probably alongside other hard drives as well.

This is most likely the reason it takes so long to scan with SpyBot S&D - Housecall tends to take awhile on my computer too.

Your Hijackthis log is looking clean, are you having any other problems? :thumbsup:

When I say along time I meant hours - but only using the browser plug-in for IE - if I use the Java version it's pretty quick. I never use IE for browsing - just Firefox.

No other major problems - I did find a couple other trojans in my c:\windows\temp directory yesterday using the spyware scan on Trend Micro. And yes - I run a Raid 0 (dual 120gb) western digitals. The odd part was SpyBot took almost two hours last night - then I did a reboot and tried it again and it took about 10 minutes. Odd.

What is the best way to get rid of all the useless temp files - disk clean doesn;t get allthe file under the c:\windows\temp area and I see alot of people say to just search for:

*.tmp, *.chk, ~*.* and delete all that comes up. I'm pretty computer savy and keep my machines pretty clean but the two trojans in my temp directory has got me wondering.

On a side note - how safe and reliable is CCleaner? I just downloaded it and ran it and let it clean everything it found just using the default settings. I've seen alot of "press" on the net about how good it is.

All help is greatly appreciated!

Hello orion6192,

The SpyBot occurence is indeed odd.

For the temp and junk files,

Please download and install CleanUp!

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:
Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files (if present)
  • Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

It may ask you to log-off/reboot at the end, if it does please do so.

I downloaded Clean Up! and have one small question - would you check "Scan Local Drives for Temporary Files" also?

Again thanks!

Hello orion6192,

A very small amount of people have had trouble with that option, but in your case it probably won't hurt if you enable that option.

Were you having any other problems that need to be addressed? :thumbsup:

Hello orion6192,

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 re-enable 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

    Reenable 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.

here are some additional utilities that will enhance your safety
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
