I have these two that I can't get rid of. Ad-Aware SE finds them but they come back every time I reboot. there are 19 entries between the two of them. I ran Adaware SE, Spybot S&D and CWSshredder and now have Spyware Blaster running. Any help you can offer is appreciated. I don't have the firewall up yet but will by the time you get to this.

Thanks
Speck

speckulator, welcome.

Please print this out and follow ALL these directions carefully.

You are not running an anti virus application which is very foolish on today's Internet.

AVG V7.0 by Grisoft is free for home use.
http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_dwnl7.php

Download the latest v1.98.2 version of HijackThis to post your new log:
http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe
or
http://tools.radiosplace.com/HijackThis.exe

Make sure 'show all files' is enabled:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...=&osv=&osv_lvl=

Boot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 key repeatedly at bootup.
More detailed instructions here:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...001052409420406

Find and delete if still present:

C:\documents and settings\jax\local settings\temp <== empty this folder regularly

Start HijackThis and tick the boxes next to all these, then close all browser and explorer windows, and tell HijackThis to "Fix checked" if still present.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [uLHZ] C:\documents and settings\user\local settings\temp\uLHZ.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = E:\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE


Reboot and Install the prevention protection below and help your friends from being infected on the Internet.

Empty the Recycle Bin frequently.

Run CleanUp! as the Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there.
http://cleanup.stevengould.org/
Then reboot to let it clean out what it found.

By the way, in order to improve Internet Explorer (IE) performance the Temporary(TIF)should be cleaned out periodically.
Also, it is a good idea to limit the size of the TIF to 200MB for performance sake.
In IE go to Tools then Internet Options then Settings and move the slider down to 200MB.

Download and install WinPatrol.
http://www.winpatrol.com

Browser settings for increased security:
http://bshagnasty.home.att.net/browsersettings.htm

Install IE-SPYAD then run the install.bat in the ie-spyad folder and SpywareBlaster then keep them up to date as today's Internet is full of nasty infections.
https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm#IESPYAD
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

You should install Windows Service Pack 2 and ALL Critical Updates to help from being continually infected.
In Internet Explorer go to Tools then Windows Updates and install each patch one by one rebooting when necessary.

Sorry for the delay.

I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

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

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button:

O4 - Global Startup: RAMASST.lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\RAMASST.exe

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\RAMASST.exe

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log and tell us if your better

Don't worry about the delay, I am going to nominate you guys for sainthood, delay and all. The volume you do here is unbelievable. I think the laptop is good to go now, just take a look and let me know if it is clean. I have one more desktop to do. I had the come to Jesus talk with the family about all these b/s downloads and websites so hopefully I will be leaving you guys alone a while after that.

Thanks again
Speck

      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Glad I was able to help.
