Posted 23 March 2006 - 03:32 AM

I need someone to check my log. I run System Mech6, Kaspersky anti-virus, Kaspersky firewall, online scans from trendmicro and ewido, using XP pro on this particular machine. I cannot rid the machine of jksearch/hidden.dlls despite disabling system restore, removing under safe mode as admin. I have tried everything but my machine still acts quirky. I've had my browser hijacked a few times and I am sick of it. Please help me rid the machine of these problems and remove whatever else is in there. Honestly, I don't know what else to try except this ----> :thumbsup:

Hi,

The forums are really busy, that explains why logs get behind. We start with the oldest logs first. If you still need some help, please start with posting a new hijackthislog in this thread. Don't start with a new thread.
Then I'll take a look. :thumbsup:

Thanks. It's still acting squirrely and I don't know why. In addition to it running ragged with the other problems, I can't manage to defrag one of the slave hard drives without the machine freezing. Today, I wasn't able to get MSIE to load a website that clearly pinged as working. I downloaded firefox and it worked beautifully even on the page that refuses to load under MSIE.

Here is the log. Thanks.

Hello,

There is nothing malware related in your log though..

Just check and fix next in hijackthis:

O16 - DPF: {DBA230D1-8467-4e69-987E-5FAE815A3B45} -


Concerning not able to run MSIE... I think your Kaspersky Antihacker or Antivirus is causing this.
I guess you are using the latest versions?
Concerning the defrag problem of the slave hard drives, this looks like a bad sector present.
That's why I suggest you start a new thread here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/56/windows-xp-home-and-professional/
No need to post a log there, because this is nothing malware related.
Just give an explanation of the issues you are dealing with.

Extra note, I see System Mechanics present...; Good advice, be careful with this program. I've seen it causing more damage than anything else unfortunately.

Thank you so much for the help. I clicked on those in hijackthis and had it repair them.

I'll post a new one regarding the drive issue. I appreciate all your help.

BTW, I didn't know that system mechanic causes problems. I've used it for years. It always manages to keep the systems running well. The problem with the latest version is that it is full of bloat. The program literally hogs everything when running. It's unbelieveable. I don't know if I will use it much but it does a wonderful job of adjusting things like freeing up ram, removing junk, and uninstalling software although I use Your Uninstaller for that these days. I do use the spyware remover alot. It works pretty well. It doesn't get everything but it does remove right much.

I do have instances of JKSearch and HiddenDLL showing up through CWShredder. I followed the directions about removing by going into safe mode but it is still there when I run CW. Is there anything else I can try? It doesn't appear to show up under HJT but it does show up under CW. I followed the steps listed online word for word but it is still hanging in there for some reason.

Hello,

I do have instances of JKSearch and HiddenDLL showing up through CWShredder


Yes, I had them as well in the past.... this is a false positive. So nothing to worry about. I guess you are still using an older version.
CWShredder is now a part of Trendmicro:
http://www.intermute.com/products/cwshredder.html

But to be honest, it still shows a lot of false positives. That's why most people don't use it anymore.
There is no CWS present on your system.

This is a part of a post from someone with the same problem all the time:

CWShredder 2.0 false-positive issue.

I have reported my problem to Intermute and have an Incident Report with them.
I understand the problem has been turned over to Intermutes Engineers
to follow up on.

The f/p's showing on my system are "CWS.Jksearch and CWS.HiddenDll".
My OS is Win'XP Home SP2.
This OS has the option of using Compressed Attributes to save disk space. The option is available only with NTFS partitioned files. I don't believe it's as readily available if using FATS partitioning.

I've found the f/p's mentioned are detected only when the HOSTS file is optioned for Compressed Attributes and a CWShredder scan is run.
When I remove the Compressed Attributes option and scan again the
CWShredder scan completes without detecting the the two CWS variants.

I'm currently using a HOSTS file from Winhelp2002 31-10-04.
I have experimented by replacing this HOSTS file with the original Microsoft version, with the same results. When optioned for Compressed Attributes
the same two CWS items are found and removed. Once the compression option is removed the scan completes without a problem.

I know Merijn is no longer involved with CWShredder however I did send him an email describing the problem as it affects my computer.

I don't know if the problem with CWShredder 2.0 is similar but I'm hopeful Intermute Engineers will sort it out.


Just search on google for JKSearch and HiddenDLL
You'll find A LOT of these posts. After all, it's a false positive. So please don't worry here. :thumbsup:

Thank you so much. I checked using the new CWShredder. It came up clean.

Any info about what to do with the hard drive?

Hi, concerning the hard drive... better to start a new thread on that, because I don't have that many knowledge concerning hardware. :thumbsup:

Good the new CWShredder came up clean, good they fixed that bug.


To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
