The nightmare is called SpywareQuake 2.0
I don't know where I got this from but it has taken over my life. It is acting just like a SpyFalcon attack I had last week. A pop-up comes up above the clock telling me my computer is infected, does a bogus scan, tells me I have some incredible number of viruses and all I have to do to get rid of them is give them money. I can go into Add/Remove programs and uninstall it easily enough. That lasts about 20 minutes and then it reinstalls itself again without even rebooting. I have followed all the instructions on how you guys recommend I try to get rid of it myself first. I cleaned up a number of things but this one just won't go away. Here is the Hijackthis log:

Hi Mr. Jimbonicus

Welcome to BC.

Try following the instruction here first. When finished, using Windows XP's search function, find and delete this file:

stickrep.dll

It should be in system32 folder.

Let us know if it solved your problem.

Posted Image

Double-click on the smitRem.exe file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Posted Image

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop (in Internet Explorer, right click on Panda ActiveScan link select "Copy Shortcut" then right click on your desktop and select "Paste Shortcut" or in FireFox right-click the link and select "Save Link As" and save it to your desktop).

Please download the trial version of ewido anti-malware here:

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

Download roguescanfix.exe, and save it to your desktop.
Double click roguescanfix.exe to install it.
Open the roguescanfix folder, and doubleclick run.bat.
Your desktop and icons will disappear and then reappear again, this is normal.
Wait till te message "Completed script execution" appear, then click OK.
Click "Exit" to close BFU.
Click "OK" to start the SpywareQuake/Spyfalcon uninstaller, after that click "uninstall".

Next, boot into Safe Mode. To do this:

1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.



Open the smitRem folder on your desktop

Double-click on the RunThis.bat file, as shown by the arrow in the image above, to start the tool.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK
  • When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Close ewido anti-malware.

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut.
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button.
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button.
    • Enter your Country
    • Enter your State/Province
    • Enter your e-mail address and click send
    • Select either Home User or Company
    • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When the download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.

Post the contents of the Panda scan report, along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of smitfiles.txt and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.
Let us know if any problems persist.

This may be due to another issue but, I can't get into Safe Mode. Everytime I do I get a flash of blue screen and a reboot. I turned of the automatic restart upn failure to see what it was. The blue screen said I had and IRQ=>0 conflict. I don't remember exactly. I'm at work right now. I tried to get rid of the exe. file it mentioned but it said it was in use by another program. When I think about all the time I spent trying to fix this thing, I realize it would have been quicker to just reformat. This is the first time I've gotten a bug on the first day of it's release. I'm very greatful to all you technogeeks out there who have come up with solutions to these issues. You guys rock! Thanks for the help. You have helped reaffirm my faith in humanity. I thank you.
Jim

Sounds like a hardware issue. I don't know if it would help, but I found this article about the error you are getting. It may help you understand and maybe solve it.
