Welcome to BC!

===

Your HijackThis is still in a .zip file. Having HJT zipped, it can't create backups, so we must delete this .zip file and re-install HJT again. To do that, please follow the instructions below:
  • Please delete your old copy of HijackThis.
  • Download HijackThis (self-extracting) to your Desktop.
  • Double-click the file, then click the Unzip button.
  • Close the window afterwards.
Your HijackThis is now in a permanent folder, and can save backups safely. Please remember that it is now saved in C:\Program Files\HijackThis\

===

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
  • Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.
  • Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
  • Select option #1 - Search by typing 1, and press Enter.
  • A text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
  • Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
NOTES :
  • process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes.
  • Do not run the other options of this tool yet until you are asked to do so.
===

In your next reply, please include these log(s):
  • HijackThis log (new)

  • A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Download and Install an Anti-Virus

I see that you don't have any Anti-Virus running on your machine. This is very important, because without it, you are like begging for all the viruses to get inside your PC, Anti-Virus softwares will serve as your shield against these bad guys. So our advice is to download one of these free Anti-Virus products :Download & install one of them, configure it how you wish, update it. Next, run a scan with it (set it to scan everything it can). Remove/quarantine everything found. Reboot.

=====================================

Update Java
  • Go to Start Control Panel Add/Remove Programs.
  • Search for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )
    It should have this icon next to it: Posted Image
  • Click that entry and then click on the Change/Remove button.
  • Then download and install the newest version from here.
=====================================

Then post a new Hijackthis log. Also tell us how are things running now :thumbsup:

Your log is now clean! Posted Image If you still have any other problems/questions, just post them here.

Now that you're clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

1.) Re-Hide System Files and Folders:
  • Click Start
  • Open My Computer
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options
  • Select the View tab
  • Deselect the Show hidden files and folders option
  • Select the Hide protected operating system files option
  • Click Yes to confirm
  • Click OK
2.) Reset and Re-enable your System Restore

We need to do this to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)
  • Click Start Run ( type: SYSDM.CPL ) OK
  • Click the System Restore tab.
  • Check - Turn off System Restore.
  • Click Apply.
  • Uncheck - Turn off System Restore.
  • Click OK.
You have now flushed your previous System Restore points, so we will make a new one again since your computer is already clean.
  • Go to Start All Programs Accessories System Tools, and select System Restore
  • In the System Restore prompt, select: Create a restore point
  • Click Next
  • Give a description to the new Restore Point. (Something like: Clean PC)
  • Click Create
  • Then close the window
3.) How to Prevent Re-Infection

Please take your time reading on this list, it is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Windows Updates (a must!) - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this, open Internet Explorer, then and select Tools Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • Firewall (a must!) - It is definitely a must have. Two good free versions are Kerio and ZoneAlarm.
  • Anti-Virus (a must!) - It is also a must have. Two good programs are Avast and AVG, they're both free.
    Note: You must only use 1 (one) AV because if you have 2 AVs, it will conflict with each other and will only make your system slow.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein.
