Hi

It is a good ideea to print or copy these instructions because you are not able to access the Internet in SafeMode.

Make sure you are set to show hidden files and folders:
A. On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
B. Click the View tab.
C. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.
D. Uncheck Hide extensions for known filetypes and Hide protected operating system files.
How to see hidden files in Windows

REBOOT into SafeMode by tapping F8 key repeatedly at bootup: Starting your computer in Safe mode

Run HijackThis!, press Scan, and put a check mark next to all these:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.spnaltbxwpnpwbjlbzodzrqwg.biz/s...yBGREZBFHb.html
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://web.uymjvlmlxqirptycvibhqaoxb.com/s...9l0u8n5KX0.html

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Lite amok] C:\DOCUME~1\Peter\APPLIC~1\THATRO~1\intra wma.exe


Close all other windows and browsers, and press the Fix Checked button.

Delete these folders:
C:\Documents and Settings\Peter\Application Data\THATRO~1\ <-- this folder, folder name starts with THAT

Empty the Recycle Bin.

REBOOT normally.

Run HijackThis! again and post a new log please.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

Hi DolceViber69,

Welcome to BC.

Looks like cryo has beat me to the punch, so I'm editing out My instructions--please do as cryo has recommended. You do need to extract HijackThis, tho so I'm leaving my instructions for that intact.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, Messenger Plus installed Lop on your system and Lop is still there even tho it appears you have removed M Plus. Please do this:

First, you are running HijackThis from the zip folder without extracting it first. It is essential that HijackThis be extracted before you use it to fix items because backups that might be needed later won't be made.

Please create a folder for HijackThis in the root folder of your hard drive.
1. Click START>My Computer>right click Local Disk (usually (C:) for most people)>Explore.
2. Right click an open area in the main pane.
3. Select New>Folder.
4. Type in HJT & press Enter.

Now you need to extract HijackThis into the folder you just created. You can download HijackThis again from here--HijackThis Download Site or use the HijackThis.zip you already have.

1. Double click HijackThis.zip.
2. In the left hand column, click "Extract all Files". The Extraction Wizard will pop
up.
3. Click Next.
4. Copy and paste the following bold text into the "Files will be extracted to this directory" field:

C:\HJT

5. Click Next and Finish and HJT will be extracted to its own folder. Please run it from there from now on.

Log looks clean...great job ! :thumbsup:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • 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.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • 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.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • 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.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • 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.

:flowers: Many thanks!

I've one question left....
I already had installed Norton Antivirus / ZoneAlarmPro and updated these tools once a week....
and of course I ran (and updated) frequently AdAwareSe and SpybotS&D

My problem is: Why does the same bleep happen always to the same guy twice?
I do not want to eliminate MSN+ permanently. Because the kids will be: :thumbsup: and :trumpet:

Do you have somewhere any advice available to install and operate with MSN in a way that the risk is minimal?

We don't recommend the Messenger Plus!. This program has nothing to do with Microsoft. Use it at your own risk. Don't install the sponsor. It will prompt you to install it everytime it updates.
