I was hit by SpywareQuake yesterday. I removed it, I thought, but it comes back. My latest HJT log below. I removed it using AdAware, HJT, EWIDO and Symantec AntiVirus. I notice that hp100.tmp is back and SpywareQuake is set to run on startup again. These I will remove sfter this email. IE6 is giving me a home page of spywaresite.com, when it should be google. Firefox behaves better. I also get a Zone Alarm with winlogon wanting to access IP 85.255.113.238 (with variants ).

What can I use to completly remove SpywareQuake and is winlogon the true winlogon going to these far away places or shoud I do something to it also. I amwondering if it is Windows Defender 'calling home', the IP address in dnsstuff.com show Belarus as the ISP.

In the middle of this I had a system crash where I lost keyboard and mouse functions at the WindowsLogon Screen. I restored to "last good configuration" and it is working better.


TIA

Hello,

It's better to print out the next instructions or save them in notepad, because you also have to work in safe mode without networking support, so this page wouldn't be available then.
It is also important you don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order!!

* Download smitRem and save the file to your desktop.
Doubleclick it and choose install. This will create a new folder on your desktop with the name smitrem.

* Reboot into Safe Mode`: ( without networking support !)
°To get into the Safe mode as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key". Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

O2 - BHO: Nothing - {5f4c3d09-b3b9-4f88-aa82-31332fee1c08} - C:\WINNT\system32\hp100.tmp
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpywareQuake.com] C:\Program Files\SpywareQuake.com\Spyware-Quake.exe /h


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

* Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

* Reboot back into Windows normal mode.

Post a new HijackThis Log and the contents of smitfiles.txt which is present on your Homedrive (C:\ in most cases)
in you next reply.

SpywareQuake is still showing in AddRemove Programs. Shouldn't I have removed it in this process?


Thanks!

After deleting the SpywareQuake from AddRemove, I ran CounterSpy. It found and removed SpywareStrike, DesktopScan and SpywareQuake. Since the CounterSpy removal of these it is clean.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Yes, that's normal that there were still leftovers present. Hijackthis doesn't show all though. That's why an antispywarescan afterwards is always needed to get rid of the leftovers.

Glad I could help. :thumbsup:

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

Also visit this Free Online Scanner for PC Health and Safety and Microsoft Security At Home for tips to Protect your Pc, Protect yourself and Protect your Family.
