Hello again - this place worked last time so I thought I would try again... here is my problem:

I use a computer designed for a visually impaired person. The PC (running XP Professional) automatically loads JAWS For Windows (a program (JFW) which 'reads' what is going on (web pages, Word documents, keystrokes) so she can tell what is happening) which appears to run normally. HOWEVER when OPENBOOK (a Text scanning/'reading' program) is loaded, I get errors regarding SSILEXE.EXE not being able to load, which is a speech synthesizer designed to coordinate bothw JFW and OPENBOOK so they can 'talk' without both talking at once. I followed Freedom Scientific's directions (they are the makers of both these programs) to re-expand the AUTOEXEC.NT, CONFIG.NT and COMMAND.COM files from the Windos master disk to the C:\windows\system32\ directory, but the problem keeps coming back. (The only other error message I remember is something about not being able to "load a 16-bit program" or something like that.)

Things I have noticed: a Sheild (looks like a MS Update shield) which says 'Downloading Updates 0%' (but I don't think it's really doing that) that pops up when I start Windows, JAWS runs fine, but trying to open OPEN BOOK takes a LONG time to load (and I get the error message about the speech synthesizer not being able to load) - if I try to load OPENBOOK while Norton Protection Center is checking the system this REALLY bogs down.

I am wondering if runnning Norton's SPEEDDiSK could have had an effect (and all I need to do is re-istall OPENBOOK) but the fact the fake 'Updates Downloading' sheild keeps coming back worries me.

Norton Anti-virus, AdAwarem SpyBot AND Karpisky find nothing (except files already quarantined by Norton) - so I am enclosing a HiJacThis log that I made while typing this up (also running IE and Yahoo messsenger) HJT log ffollows

* Please download, install, and update the free version of Ewido Security Suite:
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • From the main Ewido screen, click on update in the left menu, then click the Start update button.
  • After the update finishes, the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"
  • Exit Ewido. DO NOT run a scan yet.
* If you do not already have Ad-Aware SE 1.06 installed, follow these download and setup instructions. Also check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Again, do NOT run a scan yet.


* Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
* open hijackthis and put a check next to the following:

  • Click on Scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.

  • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
  • Close Ewido

NOTE!!!! AFTER ATFCleanup amd HiJackThis, I went opened IE to post the results and went straight to the Microsoft Updates page. I told it to install the critical updates and that required me to reboot again. (This HJT log is AFTER that reboot, but the earlier one looked 'clean' too?) This reboot seemed to take a LONG time to open Icons and IE so I could send the log files. disk seems quiet now, so maybe I should chillout nd just retest the JAWS/OPENBOOK system? (in other words, if nothing explodes in my face I am panicking for nothing over the long load time? Post-infection paranoia maybe?))

EDITED - I got worried and reran stuff... the Hard drive is still busy and HiJackThis found that '06' entry of ControlPanel again, so reran your fix and the above scans are from the second run. wondering if we got whatever it was. (JFW/OPENBOOK loaded normally after first AND second runs of your fix, but the harddrive still running and the fact the '06' thingee showed up again concern me.. any ideas or am I just starting to lose my mind?

Do these look okay?

Ken

I think that your 'JFW/OPENBOOK' is causing the problem :thumbsup:

Jurgenv -

First off, thanks! If you found nothing amiss in the above scans then I guess things are 'normal', that is, before everything went screwy. I'll try running JFW/OPENBOOK a couple times to make sure.

Second, to avoid 'panic calls' like this, what sort of things should I look for in a HiJackThis scan to "fix it myself" ? Are there general rules that I can follow if I suspect problems with the registry? (I guess I am asking you to teach me some basics so I don't feel I am asking 'dumb' questions.)

Thanks again,

Ken

Don't fix anything by yourself, we're here to provide you excellent free help :thumbsup:


Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer in order to prevent future malware infections. Please take these recommendations seriously; these few simple steps can stave off the vast majority of spyware problems. As happy as we at SWI are to help you, for your sake we would rather not have repeat customers. :flowers:

1) Please navigate to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and download all the "critical updates" for Windows. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer.

Please either enable Automatic Updates under Start -> Control Panel -> Automatic Updates , or get into the habit of checking for Windows updates regularly. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

2) In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free programs:

Ad-Aware SE
A tutorial on using Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer may be found here.

Spybot-Search & Destroy
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found here. Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.

SpywareBlaster
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer may be found here.

SpywareGuard
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found here.

Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date and to run them regularly, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.

3) Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here:
http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

4) Also make sure to run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep it up-to-date.

Please also read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place

Hopefully this should take care of your problems! Good luck. :D

Jurgenv -

Thanks. As this is my landlady's PC (not mine) I'll stay with IE for the browser for now, but I downloaded the SpywareBlaster/Spyguard and set them up.

I'll have to make diskette copies for future use though - hope to get my own PC on the Net after a while, but have a few other priorities right now.

Thanks again!

Ken
