Posted 24 July 2006 - 01:47 AM

I've scenned my computer several times with BitDefender Antivirus. It has detected the Trojan.Fakealert.AW(filename: n[1].cab=>n.exe) virus located in my Temp. internet files folder.

It had been unsuccessful in removing it, cleaning it, moving it, and renaming it.

I have even tried following the file path to delete the files myself, but I can't see ANY folders/files beyond the temp internet files folder.

Here's my HijackThis log:

I also scanned my system with McAffee AVERT Stinger and it didn't find anything.

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

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.

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

Download Killbox
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • In the event you already have Killbox, this is a new version that I need you to download.
  • Double-click Killbox.exe to run it.
  • Select Delete on Reboot.
  • Click on the All Files button.
  • Copy the words below (blue) by highlighting all of them and pressing Ctrl + C on your keyboard.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\winkku32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\gebcdbc.dll

  • Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose Paste from Clipboard.
  • Click the red-and-white Delete File button. Click Yes when prompted to restart your computer. Click OK at any PendingFileRenameOperations prompt.
NOTES :
  • If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.
  • If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run Killbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try Killbox again.
I notice that you have SpySweeper running. While this is normally a wonderful tool to protect against hijackers, it can also interfere with HijackThis fixes. You can re-enable this when your computer is already clean.

Disable SpySweeper
  • Click Options.
  • Click Program Options.
  • Uncheck Load at Windows Startup.
  • Click Shields.
  • Uncheck all items.
  • Uncheck Home Page Shield.
  • Uncheck Automaticly restore default without notification.
Please open HijackThis, click Do a system scan only, and then place a checkmark beside each of these entries:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O20 - Winlogon Notify: gebcdbc - gebcdbc.dll (file missing)
O20 - Winlogon Notify: winkku32 - winkku32.dll (file missing)

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

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


Clear IE's Cookies and Cache
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer.
  • Go to Control Panel Internet Options General tab.
  • Click the Delete Cookies.
  • Next to it, Click the Delete Files button.
  • When prompted, place a check in: Delete all offline content, click OK.
Clear Firefox' Cookies ( in case you also have the Firefox browser )
  • Open Firefox.
  • Click Tools Options.
  • Click the Privacy tab, then the Cookies tab.
  • Click the Clear Cookies Now button.
  • Then click OK to exit.
Clean Temporary Files
  • Go to Start Run type: cleanmgr OK.
  • Choose (C:) and then click OK.
  • Make sure these are the only ones that are checked :
    • Temporary Internet Files
    • Temporary Files
    • Recycle Bin
  • Click OK to remove them.
  • Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
=====================================

Run an online scan at Panda's ActiveScan
  • Please go here using Internet Explorer.
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button.
  • A new window will open, click the big Check Now button.
    • Enter your Country.
    • Enter your State/Province.
    • Enter your e-mail address and click send.
    • Select either Home User or Company.
    • Click the big Scan Now button.
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it.
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan.
  • When the download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan.
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
NOTE: Please ignore any entry it finds and the offer to buy the program to remove the entry, as we will address this later.

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

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

By the way. Earlier, brfore you replied, I rebooted my computer into safe mode, then went to my temp. internet files folder and successfully deleted the n.cab files that I found there. I'm surprised I didn't think of that earlier.



And thanks for the quick reply. I wasn't expecting anyone to reply until morning.

Looks good, please delete this file :

I deleted the file and ran a scan with bit defenfer starting at the manual folder in the file path. Here's what I got:

Even though it says it deleted them, I know they'll still be there.

Hmmm that's nothing to worry about. I think that's just the backup folder of System Mechanic Professional 6 for the Undo tool. Like System Restore, it brings back all the changes, files deleted, etc. That should be harmless. :thumbsup:

Do you still have any other problems?

Not that I'm currently aware of.

It's just a tad bit annoying seeing bit defender pop up with a couple of warning windows whenever I run a spyware/virus scan with any of the programs I have. :thumbsup:

Yeah that will trigger some scanners. But like I said, it's harmless. It's just the changes the System Mechanic did, so that if you use the Undo tool, it will restore all the files, folders, regkeys that it deleted or fixed to your computer. So that means those files inside the Undo folder are already fixed/deleted, they are just there for backup purposes or for the Undo tool to work.

If that's the only problem we have, then I can now say that..

You're now clean !! :thumbsup: 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.
