Just recently I have had trouble connecting to the internet and also using outlook Express. This all started after PestTrap was put on to my computer somehow. What I have done is run SmitFraudFix.zip as per post from Grinler dated Jul 03. Below is the log from doing the SmitFraudFix.

      {1761BEB7-2696-199F-3017-4C47B1B1C899}
  • Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
  • When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
  • Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
  • A Message should popup from NoLop. If not, double click the program again and it will finish Please Post the contents of C:\NoLop.log along with a fresh HijackThis log

Hello muzza....looking good!

Your HJT appears clean and I'm glad your system is running well with out problems!


.1. Please delete these files and/or folders using Windows Explorer(if present):
  • Click Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>Windows Explorer
  • Navigate to the listed folders, then right-click to select them and click delete


C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\My Documents\Documents\sinstaller.exe<==this file
C:\Program Files\Screensavers.com<==this folder
C:\Program Files\Pornosaur<==this folder


2. You can go ahead and delete the HJT backups and any tools/programs you downloaded to help cleaning infections (SmitfraudFix, NoLOP etc.). One exception I would make is for the ATF Cleaner...it is a great little utility adn handy to have around to help with temp file and cookie cleaning!

3. Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT! - If you are using Windows XP then you should reset system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point and that you have a clean restore point should you need one!

    Now let's reset your restore points.

    Click Start Menu >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> SystemRestore

    Press OK. Choose 'Create a Restore Point' then Next. Name it and press 'Create' then when the confirmation screen shows the restore point has been created click 'Close'.

    Next go to Start Menu >> Run, then type:

    cleanmgr


    click OK, when Disk Cleanup opens go to the 'More Options' tab and press 'Cleanup' on the system restore area which will remove all the restore points except the one we just created. To close Disk Cleanup and remove the Temporary Internet Files detected in the initial scan click OK then choose Yes on the confirmation window.
  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
  • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
  • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • 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.
  • ATF Cleaner by Atribune. This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only. ATF is a new, freeware, temporary file cleaner for Windows, IE, Firefox and Opera with a simple, easy-to-use interface. The main screen allows the user to either clean all temporary files, or select files for cleaning. The program also knows if Firefox and or Opera is being used, and gives the option of cleaning the temporary files associated with those applications.
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. These are excellent reads too: I'm not pulling your leg and Malware: Preventing the Infection

Remember...be careful out there!

I'll keep this thread open for a day or two for you to come back if you are having any problems...Good luck!

Hi Navigator, well the computer is running as well as ever and I'm very happy. :thumbsup:
I have applied the directions from your last post.
I must thank yourself and the HJT for responding so fast to my problem, I was recommended from a friend to use the website and have also recommended the site to my friends if they have any probs.

There is one last thing that when I boot up it takes so long to load the icons at the bottom right corner, most of these i don't use, how can I fix it so the comp boots quicker.
At the moment it takes 4-5 min..

:flowers:

You're Welcome muzza...glad your system is running well!

Slow boot times can be due to many factors as you know from system parameters (RAM, processor speed etc) to a system clogged with 'junk' or malware. In your case we know it isn't malware! :thumbsup:

If you want to see what is loading at startup, and try to eliminate unecessary/unwanted programs, you can do this: click start>>run and type msconfig in the 'open' box. Then, select the startup tab up top.

You can then scroll through the list and research the startup entries in the BC startup list database found here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/

The list will give you information about the startup programs and whether they are 'required' or 'not required' to run at startup and you can selectively choose what you want to have run at startup. This is preferable to 'fixing' with HJT because if you change your mind or make a mistake you can always reverse the process in the same manner.

That is how I would do it, but this link here at BC is a tutorial for how to optimize your computer, and it uses an 'autoruns' program: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/33012/how-to-use-the-startup-database/ and this is the link to the Windows Startup Database Forum http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/85/windows-startup-programs-database/

See if either of these help in identifying what you need to run at startup. You can post questions about dtartup entries in the above forum I referred you to, and don't forget, BC also has a WindowsXP forum where I am sure a bunch more smarter people than me about this topic hang out...

Good luck muzza!
