While both adaware and symantec pick this up, they find different files:
symantec finds c:\program files\fonts\rundll.exe and a registry key, and this continually returns after deleting

adaware finds c:\windows\system32\arpa.dll, and telling it to remove the items in adaware results in a hang and eventual auto reboot, without deleting the item. manual deletion doesn't work either as it won't let me delete it (says disc may be write protected, or file may be in use)

i've tried very thorough removal processes a while back (had multiple problems actually), using smitfraudfix, spybot, counterspy, and adaware, and this is the only one that won't completely go away. Even used the purityscan uninstall program, which got rid of a few more things, but not all of it apparently (unless this is a false positive on the scan)

thanks in advance for any help with this obnoxious problem

HJT encountered an error in the scan:

Also, IE and firefox continually crash since rebooting after deleting arpa.dll. Firefox would get

an error before even opening at first till a log off/on, but it will now open, yet do nothing when

buttons are pressed. Could hardly keep IE open long enough to send a reply.

well, it seems the problems are worse than i said before... neither internet browser works for long without crashing, and i am not even able to update firefox (installer claims a data error and stops).. while winamp was able to sucessfully update. also, symantec antivirus crashes on the first few attempts to load and will not update, and spybot claimed it had been tampered with and then crashed. also, very suspiciously, renaming firefox.exe to firefox1.exe makes it totally stable. windows malicious software removal tool crashes as well. safemode does not have any of these problems so hopefully this is fixable... who knew deleting one dll could do all this (i have a backup of it though if that helps)...

That error is normal, so nothing to worry about.

That file you're saying ( C:\WINDOWS\System32\arpa.dll ) that may be the reason of all the weird things that happened is malware, it is part of PurityScan, so don't worry about it having deleted, it's not legit. Well, I can't see any suspicious lines in your log, let's try this..

You may want to print out these instructions or save it as a text document, and use them as a reference. If you have any questions regarding the fix, please ask us before proceeding. It is also important for you to don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order.

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

Uninstall Programs

  • Find and remove the following program(s) (if present):

    WeatherBug

  • Close Add/Remove Programs window after uninstalling.

O9 - Extra button: WeatherBug - {AF6CABAB-61F9-4f12-A198-B7D41EF1CB52} - C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe (file missing) (HKCU)

After placing all the checkmarks, close all windows (except HJT), and then hit Fix Checked. When it finishes, exit HJT.

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

Locate and delete the following folder(s), if present : C:\Program Files\AWS\

I had been wondering what that AWS folder was for a while, thanks for helping me get rid of that... I noticed a few other entries in the log such as counterspy and bitdefender, which i had uninstalled. Is it safe to tell HJT to fix entries like that when the program has already been uninstalled?

Also, I believe that I found the real source of the problem, though it may have been the rundll.exe in the fonts folder which had reinstalled itself, as it seemed to calm down a bit after that. However, I had put in some new ram that i had just gotten back from an rma during the middle of this adware problem. I realize now that this was pretty dumb thing to do (just wanted to make sure these sticks weren't defective before time ran out to replace them), and that i really should have waited to fix these problems first. It was set to run the mem at 400 mhz originally, but when i scaled it back down to 333 mhz, the machine became very stable again. After some research, it seems that my motherboard seems to only allow a maximum of 1.5 GB of ram in it at 400 mhz and i had installed 2 GB. My system seems pretty stable now (haven't had ie or firefox crash for > 20 mins!!), so i'm guessing that the ram problem was contributing to my troubles.

Nevertheless, thank you very much for helping me get rid of those last traces of purityscan, as it was quite annoying to keep finding it after every scan, as well as cleaning up some of the other items that were found. I very much appreciate your help.

Glad to hear that :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.
