Hello,

i cant seem to get rid of the malware on my computer.

it seemed to start with spywarequake, and toolbar888, i ran the smitfraud fix, and it seemed to get rid of some of it.

I ran updated adaware and spybot and that seemed to get rid of toolbar888.

now i'm getting an annoying little tray icon that says:

security alert

system encountered spyware that collects your personal information without your consetn. this information includes passwrods, credit card details and other private date. click the icon to learn more ways to protect your files.


and i'm getting periodic popups that look like sysytem generated popups, etc.

just now i got a notification from spyware bot that notified me of an attempted registry entry change: from a program called: ipwins.exe - of course I did NOT allow the registry change.

here is my hijackthis log:

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. Please make sure that you follow this in the right order as I have listed.

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

Reboot into Safe Mode
  • Restart your computer.
  • Before the Windows logo appear, tap F8 repeatedly.
  • A menu should appear, select Safe Mode from the menu using your arrow keys and then hit Enter on your keyboard.
  • This will take a while than usual, so just wait.
=====================================

Open the SmitfraudFix folder.
  • 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 here - C:\rapport.txt
  • NOTE : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.
=====================================

In your next reply, please include these log(s):
  • HijackThis log (new)
  • C:\rapport.txt

running the clean command didn't work at all.

here's what happend.
I followed the instructions and chose option #2.

a brief flash of text went across the screen and then explorer dissapeared (no more task bar or desktop icons)

then nothing else happend, the command prompt that was running the smitfraudfix program dissapeared and just left me there.

I tried running it again, same thing happend, just a brief flash of text and then nothing.

I gave up...I just backed all my important stuff up, reformatted and re-installed windows.

I do appreciate the help though! it was a valiant effort :thumbsup:

Oh.. But we can just use another tool if you tell me the problem before you reformatted..


Well, just follow these tips to keep your computer clean ;)

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.
