Posted 18 May 2006 - 11:50 AM

I am running windows xp home.
I have contracted some malware that has placed an icon in my taskbar telling me I am infected with spyware and need to purchase their product. It refers to SpyFalcon and seems to be very resilient.
I have run spybot, adAware, and a-squared, all in safe mode. They have cleared several Spywares from the computer but dont seem to touch the icon in the task bar. Also while in safe mode, I ran smitRem.exe along with FixSF.reg. Nothing has removed the taskbar icon. I then tried SmitFraudFix and checked my computer with Panda online. I have attached files of both scans as well as a Hyjackthis log

Hello,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer :thumbsup:

Please download, install, update and scan your system with the free version of Ewido Anti Malware: http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

1. When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
2. 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.
3. From the main ewido screen, click on update in the left menu, then click the Start update button.
4. After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"), click on the Scanner button in the left menu, then click on the Start button. This scan can take quite a while to run, so time to go get a drink and a snack....
5. If ewido finds anything, it will pop up a notification. You can select "clean" and check the boxes "Perform action with all infections" and "Create encrypted backup" before clicking on OK.
6. When the scan finishes, click on "Save Report". This will create a text file.

In your reply please post the log from Ewido and a new HijackThis log. How is your computer running?
Please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you.
Every little bit helps! :)
You can even use your credit card! Thank you!

Well that was easy.....
The taskbar icon is now gone and the computer seems to be running alot smoother now, not so bogged down. I guess its just a matter of matching the problem with the antivirus, spyware, malware, etc software that will get rid of it. To bad they dont make an all-in-one program to clean every problem at once.
!!Thanks for the help!!

Hi there,

Glad all went well. :thumbsup: You did the majority of the work here! :flowers: I just helped with the last cleanup. Your log looks clean. :huh:

Delete Temp Files:
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.
This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there.

Delete Temporary Internet Files:
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.

MOST IMPORTANT!
Please navigate to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and download all the "critical updates" for Windows, including SP2 and the latest version of Internet Explorer. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer. Your current versions are outdated. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

Below I have included a number of recommendations on 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.

It is very important to maintain your Firewall.
A tutorial on understanding and using firewalls may be found here.

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

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.

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.

IE/Spyad:
It places over 5000 malicious websites and domains in your IE's restricted zone.

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

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

Take care!

Thanks again for the help..
I usually keep my Temporary Internet files capacity at 900MB so it never gets to large. Also I already run Spybot, AD-Aware SE, and Spywareblaster. I installed Spyware Guard per your suggestion. My Windows Automatic updates is turned on so I get the updates when they release them. I use AVG antivirus and it is set to run a full scan every 30 days.

I also use Zone Alarm for my firewall. I have used it for several years now and have been very happy / comfortable with it.
What I cant remember for sure is the reason that I have not redownloaded Windows SP2.

I had originally downloaded it but removed it when I was getting conflicts (computer freezing, etc) with another program on my computer. I was thinking it was with Zone Alarm, but I'm not sure. Brains to old I guess. All I do remember is that it seemed to be quite an issue getting it off the computer.


Do you think it's that benefical that its worth me trying puttng it on again??
And is there a newer version of Internet Explorer that I should be using?? If so where do I get it at?

thanks again,
steve

Hi Steve,

Yes, there are updates to IE, and you can now upgrade to IE7. In my above post, the Windows update link will take you where you need to go.

Windows Firewall just isn't strong enought to block all the needs to be blocked, especially if you do a lot of surfing. Zone Alarm is a little heavier on resources than others, but good nonetheless.

I hope this helped.

Take care Steve :thumbsup:
