Hi,

I am running Windows XP Professional. My computer was recently Hijacked. I managed to clean most of the problems with "Panda Titanium" antivirus but it was unable to clean "bestsafetyguide.net". It was also unable to clean "adware/xpasswordmanager". I would really appreciate any help on this topic.

Here are the logs from "HijackThis" and "SmitfraudFix"

Hi there and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site. 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, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again.
  • Double-click smitfraudfix.cmd.
  • Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.
  • You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.
  • The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".
  • The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.
  • A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
  • The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt
  • Warning : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.
David

Hi there, let's continue.

* Please download Dr Web-Cureit!
--> Save the folder to your desktop.
--> Don't run it yet.

Download AboutBuster.
Unzip AboutBuster.
Read here how to unzip/extract properly:
http://metallica.geekstogo.com/xpcompressedexplanation.html
Don't run it yet.

Reboot into SAFE MODE
By pressing the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer
beep when you reboot it (some versions of windows will display 'Starting Windows' with a grey progress bar)
you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode. If it does not work on the first try, reboot and try again, as you have to be quick when you press it.

* Start Aboutbuster and let it scan.
The log will be saved in the aboutbuster-folder
If you get any error using aboutbuster, it's important you let me know afterwards in your next reply.
So skip this step in case of error and proceed with the next step of this fix.

* Run Dr Web-Cureit!
--> Double-click the "drweb-cureit.exe" and click "ok" in the prompt window that will open, asking "start the express scan now".
--> It will first make a quick scan of your system, let it clean what it finds, and when it says "done" in the lower left corner click on all your drive's.
--> A red dot will mark the selected drive(s) . Then hit the pedestrian who now has turned green.
--> Click on the green man in the right corner, it will scan ALL your drive's, hit yes to all.
--> Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
--> When the scan has finished, in the menu, click file and choose save report list
--> Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
--> Close Dr.Web Cureit.
--> Reboot your computer back to normal mode.

Please post back with a new Hijackthis log and the Cureit log.
David

Hi,

I had a little problem with "Dr Web-Cureit", I had to shut it down before I completed your process. The results were as follows when I shut it down:

I hope this will not affect the final results.

I ran "dr Web-Cureit " again. this time I completed all the steps. Here are the results:

Hi Poof, the log is looking clean now.
How do you think the system is running? Don't worry about the interruption in the drweb scan, the fact you want back and restarted in was a good idea and all the bad files were found there. In addition, your Java is slightly out of date and the older versions are being exploited by malware. It is the likely cause of your infection, so we need to get it patched up as soon as possible.
  • 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
Please reboot the computer and let me know how the computer is running.
David :thumbsup:

Thank you very very much!!!

I installed the newest version of "Java" and my computer seems to be working very well.

I do however have a problem with my Pioneer DVD burner. After I was hijacked, I tried to back up some of my file to a DVD-RW. The files burned to disc sucessfully but when I go to explorer, the disc appears to be empty. I can not see any files. I brought the disc to a friends house and everything was fine on his computer. We were able to view and access all the files on the disc.
I don't have this problem with CD's or DVD's, I only have it with DVD-RW's

I was wondering if this has anything to do with my computer being hijacked, and if so, how can I fix this problem.

Once again thank you very much for helping me with these problems, I really appreciate it.

Poof

Hi again poof.

I'm sorry but I have no idea why the CD doesn't load on your computer. I think it might be that certain types of rewritable CD's don't work on specific computers. You might like to ask your question here in a new topic, and somebody should be able to give you a better answer:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/56/windows-xp-home-and-professional/

The latest log is looking clean!
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Use an Anti Virus 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 on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
* Click here for more information on -> * Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus[
* I would recommend Grisoft's AVG or AVAST.
* These are the more secure and better ones.

Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus 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 susceptible to being hacked and taken over.
* Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
* For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
* I would recommend ZoneAlarm as a firewall as it's easy to use.

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.

Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (all free), and the updating of them regularly

Install Spybot - Search and Destroy- Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
* This will provide real-time 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 anti virus software.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
