Posted 06 April 2006 - 05:00 AM

Hi, it all started with just pop-ups, then got a few messages saying I had a virus. Got those cleaned and was able to remove spyware but, not them all. I am now getting constantly a pop up from my virus program saying I have a virus in my temp files. I checked it out and it is a notepad with always the file name ac2[1].txt.

Here is my Hijackthis log

*Please download the Suspicious File Packer from here:
http://www.safer-networking.org/files/sfp.zip
Unzip it to the desktop and run it.

Paste the following file path into the Suspicious File Packer window:

C:\Windows\System32\w08fc79e.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w00a5294.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w005b9f1.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w002c5c7.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w002ec79.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w0dcb73c.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w002c3c3.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w06ed25c.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w0010838.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w0057333.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w0077a3e.dll
C:\Windows\System32\w006cf49.dll


Allow SFP to pack the file. This will generate a CAB archive on your desktop. Please email the file to:

miekiemoesATmalware-research.co.uk

remember to replace the AT in the above line with an @
(the reason to not post a complete valid e-mail address in a post is so spammers can't harvest the addresses)

It's better to print out the next instructions or save it in notepad, because you also have to work in safe mode without networking support, so this page wouldn't be available then.
It is also important you don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order!!

Hello,

This is already looking a lot better. :thumbsup:

Now we have to delete some files and folders manually.
Keep in mind, some files and folders will be hidden, so you have to reveal hidden files and folders before as you did previously.

Delete next:

C:\WINDOWS\errorhandler.exe
C:\WINDOWS\mvvyplsA.exe
C:\WINDOWS\S2VycnkgTmVsc29u <== folder
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Ssk.log
C:\WINDOWS\keyboard61.dat
C:\PROGRAM FILES\MyWay <== folder

If you are having problems with deleting anything, try it in safe mode.
Empty your recycle bin

Then, Open notepad and copy and paste next bold in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\NEED2FIND]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\APP MANAGEMENT\ARPCACHE\ALTNETDM]


Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
It should look like this: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Then update your Java..
Updating Java:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Software icon > add/remove programs.
  • Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )
    It should have next icon next to it: Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Then Download and install the newest version from here:http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
Let me know in your next reply how things are running now. :flowers:

C:\WINDOWS\errorhandler.exe Was able to delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\mvvyplsA.exe Could not find this file in that location but, did find it in C:\windows\prefetch
C:\WINDOWS\S2VycnkgTmVsc29u <== folder Could not find
C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Ssk.log Could not find
C:\WINDOWS\keyboard61.dat Did find and deleted
C:\PROGRAM FILES\MyWay <== folder Did find and deleted


Am doing the java stuff now. Just let me know if I should delete that one file from the other location. I only had found it here cause I had used the SEARCH button.

Hi kpurplerose,

C:\WINDOWS\mvvyplsA.exe and the folder C:\WINDOWS\S2VycnkgTmVsc29u are hidden, that's why you were not able to find them. That's why I also said in my previous post to reveal your hidden files and folders again:

So perform this step again first and try to find and delete that file and folder. :thumbsup:

Please set your system to show all files.
Click Start.
Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Click OK.


What's in your prefetch folder, yes, you may delete that file there as well. :flowers:

C:\WINDOWS\mvvyplsA.exe Could not find this file in that location but, did find it in C:\windows\prefetch


Let me know afterwards how things are running now. :huh:

Yes, I did unhide these folders like you had said. I opened My Computer then went to Tools then folder options, then to View and changed it there before doing this search for those files. Am just wondering since they aren't coming up like they should if I should go and search on MY COMPUTER for these files to make sure they aren't hidden in a different folder.

Hi,

No, they are not hidden somewhere else. :thumbsup:
How do you mean with search on MY COMPUTER? Yes, you are supposed to browse to these file and folder manually to find it. So both are present in the Windows Folder, so click C:\, then click the Windows folder to open that folder and look in that folder for the file mvvyplsA.exe and the folder S2VycnkgTmVsc29u
If you really can't find them, that's ok. Most probably a scanner already deleted them. :flowers:

Sorry, I was meaning that was where I had selected to show hidden folders was on my computer going up through those tabs up top. I did look for those folders that way for the files you wanted me to look up. I did a search as well to be on the safe side and couldn't find any other than that mvvypls one which I did delete.

So far everything is working much better. I am on my way to down a java. I would like to know though how in the world can I keep all those malware off of my computer? I didn't download a thing and wasn't visiting any porn sites. I have downloaded a lot of new programs since I have found this site. I think they had showed up in my HiJack file which are those good enough to keep the spyware, malware and adware off of my computer? My sorry McAfee virus checker didn't catch the virus that Panda had picked up so, am wondering about my virus program now.

Thank you so very much and sorry this is so long

Hello,

Well, nowadays malware is lurking everywhere unfortunately. One click on the 'wrong' site even when it looks ok can download this stuff to your computer.. and once downloaded and installed, each one downloads more and installs. Also beware of P2P programs and don't open everything in mails you don't know.
Also be careful when using messenger clients. Some people you are talking to can be infected and send you some links through messenger. If you click it, you'll get infected as well.
That's why you have to be really careful these days.

A good idea is to use Firefox as an alternative browser.
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
Also read here for more info:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/switching-from-internet-explorer-to-firefox/

McAfee is a good Antivirus, but you have to make sure it's always up to date. Keep in mind, we were also dealing with spyware and adware here, so normally a virusscanner doesn't flag them always. Panda does, because it has an extra spyware scanner. You are worried that McAfee didn't flag this one - which panda did flag? Virus:Trj/sosmyn.A Not disinfected C:\WINDOWS\errorhandler.exe
Yes, that can happen. But that can be the same with Panda though -- McAfee can find files which panda doesn't recognise.

And I see you are having Ewido, so running this in combination once a while is a good idea.

Perform a full scan with an updated Adaware SE, Ewido and/or Spybot S&D to get rid of some leftovers if still present.
If you don't have those programs yet, you can find the downloadlocations in my sig.

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/
