Bearshare was put on my computer without my consent and I have had problems ever since. At first I thought it was a Winfixer infection but I have none of the telltale )2 entries on HJT and the Vundo Fix did not find anything. I have done all the steps that you recommend for malaware/popup problems - Spyaxe was found by Ad-aware and that seems to be gone - Spybot regularly finds the Teknum updater, but even when I remove it, the popups still appear.

Here is my HJT log:

Hello nowseem and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see an entry for Teknum Systems in this HijackThis log. Is there any Teknum or Handybits software installed on this computer? Applications from Teknum have been reported to include malicious components.

Let's start by running a different scanner and see what it shows us. Download WinPFind.zip and unzip the contents to the C:\ folder.

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the c:\winpfind\winpfind.exe file and double-click it to run it. Now click the Start Scan button to begin the scan.

When the scan is complete reboot normally and post the WinPFind.txt file (located in the WinPFind folder) back here along with a new HijackThis log and I will review the information when it comes in.

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.

Hi OT - yeah, there is Handybits installed ...

WinPFind log as follows:

WARNING: not all files found by this scanner are bad. Consult with a knowledgable person before proceeding.

If you see a message in the titlebar saying "Not responding..." you can ignore it. Windows somethimes displays this message due to the high volume of disk I/O. As long as the hard disk light is flashing, the program is still working properly.

Hi nowseem. Yeah, Spybot will always find Teknum and classifies it as malware. Even if you uninstall the Handybits program it does not remove everything it installs and you have to manually go through the registry and find various files that it leaves behind. One of the prices to pay for using their software.

Other than that there are a couple of entires that we should remove so let's do that.

Remove these installed programs using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel:
  • Click Start.
  • Click Control Panel.
  • Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  • Look in the Currently installed programs box for each program listed below and if it is there:
  • Click on it to select it.
  • Click Change (or Change/Remove) button.
  • If you are prompted to confirm the removal of the program, click Yes.
PartyPoker
We need to disable your Microsoft AntiSpyware Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.
  • Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  • Click on Options>Settings.
  • In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
  • Under Startup Options uncheck Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
  • Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
  • After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  • Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.
After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable Real-time Protection again.

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:F3 - REG:win.ini: run=
O18 - Filter: text/html - (no CLSID) - (no file)
O18 - Filter: text/plain - (no CLSID) - (no file)

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Use the Add Reply button to post your new log file back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps and I will review it when it comes in.

Thanks for the help. At first I was reluctant to remove Party Poker since I use it a lot and have done for a year or more. But then after I did the HJT fix and the popups still kept coming, I uninstalled Party Poker (maybe something has changed with the application that it now causes popups??). Anyway, so, I did your instructions in reverse - I hope this wasn't a bad thing. Anyway, i've only just uninstalled Party Poker, but, so far, no more pop-ups

Here is the new HJT log

Hi nowseem. That looks better. It doesn't surprise me that the popups have stopped after removing PartyPoker. If you checkout their Privacy Policy you will see:

"Your Personal Information may also be shared with our affiliates, subsidiaries, agents and suppliers in order to provide the Service and provide you with promotional offers and information regarding PartyPoker.com and those of Group companies and in order for the Group to better provide a range of products and services and improved customer service."

This usually means advertising (possibly popups or email adverts). It basically boils down to do you enjoy the game enough to endure the "promotional offers".

If you do not have the partyPoker software installed anymore then you can remove these 2 items:

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe (file missing)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe (file missing)

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Ok, we have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
  • CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Next, let's clean your 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)
  • 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.
  • Restart your computer.
  • 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.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You already have a good anti-virus, and you should also have a good firewall for blocking unwanted access to and from your computer. These also are free for personal use:It is best to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit Microsoft Windows Update monthly. Microsoft puts out new updates on the 2nd Tuesday of every month so be sure to check regularly.

And to keep your system clean be aware of what emails you open, what websites you visit, and update and run these free malware scanners once a week:To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!

Sorry to bother again - 2nite I thought I had a recurrence of the problem - I got a familiar pop-up and then I got a more disturbing pop-up posing as legit Windows asking to install something. I didn't. But I ran a AVG scan that found two temporary internet files (not on my account) that were infected - the message was "may be infected by unknown virus Exploit.WMF" - they're in the AMG vault - should I delete them? A Spybot scan found Teknum updater, but I guess this will always happen.

Hi nowseem. Yup, as long as HandyBits is installed Spybot will report an infection from Teknum.

As far as the files in the AVG vault, you can leave them there or delete them. Being in the vault they are harmless but there is really no sense in keeping them either (unless you want to study them.

Now that the malware problems have been resolved I will close this topic. If you have any new issues in the future please start a new topic.

Cheers and happy computing.
