Posted 13 February 2006 - 04:05 AM

I've been having the worst problem with incessant pop-ups the past few days. Sometimes there are so many the computer just shuts down. I've tried everything - spybot, ewido, ad-aware, cc cleaner - all to no avail. Below is my hijack this log. Please help!

Hello and welcome to the site. :thumbsup:

Next fix is the first step; notice it's not the only step.

Please download Look2Me-Destroyer.exe to your desktop.
  • Close all windows before continuing.
  • Double-click Look2Me-Destroyer.exe to run it.
  • Put a check next to Run this program as a task.
  • You will receive a message saying Look2Me-Destroyer will close and re-open in approximately 10 seconds. Click OK
  • When Look2Me-Destroyer re-opens, click the Scan for L2M button, your desktop icons will disappear, this is normal.
  • Once it's done scanning, click the Remove L2M button.
  • You will receive a Done Scanning message, click OK.
  • When completed, you will receive this message: Done removing infected files! Look2Me-Destroyer will now shutdown your computer, click OK.
  • Your computer will then shutdown.
  • Turn your computer back on.
  • Please post the contents of C:\Look2Me-Destroyer.txt and a new HiJackThis log.
If you receive a message from your Firewall about this program accessing the Internet, please allow it.

If you receive a runtime error '339' please download MSWINSCK.OCX from the link below and place it in your C:\Windows\System32 Directory.

Thank you so much. That seemed to the trick. I couldn't locate a C:/Look2me-Destroyer.txt file on my computer, but here's the new Hijack This log:

Alright, let's fix the rest :thumbsup:

Run a scan with HijackThis and check the following objects for removal;

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE
O23 - Service: Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (lsass) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\scvhost.exe (file missing)
O23 - Service: Network Monitor - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Network Monitor\netmon.exe (file missing)
O23 - Service: Windows Overlay Components - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\wzpxxdz.exe (file missing)


Now close ALL open windows except for HijackThis and hit FIX CHECKED.

Now, please do this;

Click Start => Run => and type in;

services.msc

Click "OK".

In the services window find service; Windows Overlay Components

Right-click and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then "Ok". Exit the Services utility.

Now do this same step for the following two services also;

Network Monitor
Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (or it might be lsass)


Delete an NT Service
  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click on the configure button on the bottom right
  • Click on the tab "Misc Tools"
  • Click on "Delete an NT service"
  • Copy and paste this in: Network Monitor
  • Click "ok", then reboot
Do this same step for the following too aswell;

Windows Overlay Components
Local Security Authority Subsystem Service


After the final reboot, open the Windows Search function and look for the following file;

ALCXMNTR.EXE

Delete if present.

Next, navigate to and delete the following files;

C:\WINDOWS\scvhost.exe <= NOTICE; this file is in the C:\WINDOWS directory, the one in the C:\WINDOWS\System32 folder is legitimate, ONLY remove the one in C:\WINDOWS directory
C:\Program Files\Network Monitor\netmon.exe
C:\WINDOWS\wzpxxdz.exe


Then empty recycle bin.

Next;
  • Please go to Jotti's malware scan
  • Copy and paste the following file path into the "File to upload & scan" box on the top of the page:
  • C:\PROGRA~1\Jalmp\jalmp.dll

  • Click on the submit button
  • Please post the results in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log. :flowers:

Okay, everything went fine, except when I got to these files. I couldn't find them:

C:\WINDOWS\scvhost.exe <= NOTICE; this file is in the C:\WINDOWS directory, the one in the C:\WINDOWS\System32 folder is legitimate, ONLY remove the one in C:\WINDOWS directory
C:\Program Files\Network Monitor\netmon.exe
C:\WINDOWS\wzpxxdz.exe

Also, when I tried to upload C:\PROGRA~1\Jalmp\jalmp.dll to Jotti's, it told me the file was zero bytes and that a firewall or piece of malware was blocking the upload. What's up with that? Here's my latest Hijack This log:

I STRONGLY suggest you to uninstall all your current P2P FileSharing programs.

You have an old version of SpyBot..

Download SpyBot S&D, Click Here

Please do the following first, with your old version:

1. Undo immunization
2. If SDHelper and TeaTimer are enabled, deactivate them first.
3. If Opera Browser is installed, de-select protection for Opera Immunity
4. Uninstall old version of Spybot S&D
5. Reboot

Install the SpyBot S&D v 1.4.

Launch SpyBot. Click on the menu named "mode". Choose "Advanced mode". Confirm with yes if it gives you an warning. Next, click on "Settings", and choose the "Settings" -tab from the list. Scroll down the menu, and make sure you check the following settings for use "Display available Beta- versions" and "Display PGP signature updates".

Then go to the starting menu by clicking on the "SpyBot S&D" tab on the left handside corner. Choose to "Search for Updates". Check EVERY update on the list for use, and hit "Download Updates". It will update SpyBot. When finished, exit the program.

You can run scan if you want, removing all the BAD (red colored) items found.

Post back and let me know how's your system running. :thumbsup:

You're welcome, it's glad to help :thumbsup:

First priority: Install Service Pack 2 by visiting WindowsUpdates. After you have installed it, reboot, download & install ALL the available critical updates. Next;

Let's clear out your restore points now.

Disable System Restore;

1. Click Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer
2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Check the "Turn off System Restore"
5. Click Apply. An message shows up.
6. Click "Yes" to do this.
7. Confirm with "Ok".


Reboot.

Enable System Restore;

1. Click Start.
2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Uncheck the "Turn off System Restore" check box.
5. Click Apply, and then click "OK".


Be sure to set a new restore point.

Here's some tips for future to prevent spyware;

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed. (My favourite)
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer 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.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program <= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kaspersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall <= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser <= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox.
  • EULAlyzer by Javacool <= No need to read End user license agreements when installing software--

    # Discover potentially hidden behavior about the software you're going to install
    # Pick up on things you missed when reading license agreements
    # Keep a saved database of the license agreements you view
    # Instant results - super-fast analysis in just a second
And also see TonyKlein's good advice;
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My favourite)
