My IE redirects to www.finditanyway.com and www.liporn.com on some sites. I ran spybot s&d, ad-ware, anti-malware, and cwshredder but it couldn't fix the problem. My computer was recently infected with the Trustin adware. I uninstalled the program and clean the registry by running RegCleaner, but the registry "Trustin Url Changer" keeps coming back in RegCleaner after I deleted multiple times. And most of the time when I try to delete the registry, the program freezes. I believe it had to do with the Trustin adware but I thought i got rid of everything related to it. Thanks in advance.

Hello there and welcome to Bleeping Computer's security forum.
My name is David, I will be helping you with your log today.

It is a good idea to print off these instructions:
This will be useful as there is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available.
You may also like to save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above.
A print out of the instructions would be a good reference to make sure you don't yet lost.
Also, it is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and also that you don't miss any steps out!
If you have any queries about the process or just general questions, just ask.

Please download Ewido Anti-Spyware and save the file to your desktop.
This is a free 30 day trial version of the program.
  • Locate the icon on your desktop and double click it to open the set-up program.
  • Follow the instructions on screen to install Ewido.
  • Run the program and you will meet the main screen.
  • Select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link
  • Next click the "Start Update" button; a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Now select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  • Click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  • Close the program now, we will be running a scan a bit later.
Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

O2 - BHO: ChangerBHO Class - {0D4C7057-EAD2-44C6-AD18-9092905F28F1} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ativvaxxv.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {385066e0-23f3-11db-a98b-0800200c9a66} - (no file)
O16 - DPF: {590FFB84-6A29-4797-9C0E-B15DF2C4CDCB} - http://www.adsforsite.com/install/tload.cab


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

Now reboot into Safe Mode.
This can be done tapping the F8 key as soon as you start your computer
You will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode.
Make sure you choose the option without networking support.

Using Windows Explorer, please locate the following files/folders, and delete them if still present:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ativvaxxv.dll

Launch Ewido by double clicking on the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab.
  • Then click on the "Complete System Scan" button.
  • If you have any infections you will be asked for an action - select "apply all actions".
  • Now select the "Reports" icon at the top.
  • Click "Save Report As" and save the text file to your desktop.
  • Close Ewido and reboot back into normal mode.
Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.
Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1, and press Enter.
A text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes.

Also post the Ewido log and a new Hijackthis log.
David

Do not delete the ativvaxx.dll file.
It is a legitimate dll.

The Hijackthis log looks clean now, are you still getting redirected?
Malware like this normally never comes alone and there are probably infected files left on your computer.
Please visit Panda Online to carry out a virus scan.
Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button.
A new window will open...click the Check Now button.
Enter your personal details.
Click the big Scan Now button.
It will ask to install various content - please allow this.
It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan, which may take a while.
When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan.
When the scan completes, click the See Report button.
Click Save Report and save the file to your desktop.
Post the contents of the report in your next reply, along with a new Hijackthis log.

David

No I'm not getting redirected anymore and me IE runs and loads alot quicker now. When I went to scan on Panda Online, the only things detected were Spyware:Cookie which I always get and I'm not concern about it. Now everything seems to be back to normal just the way it was. Thanks alot for your help I really appreciate what you did :thumbsup: :flowers:

Glad I could help! :thumbsup:
The latest log is looking clean!
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will be reduced dramatically.

Use an Anti Virus Software -
* It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine.
* This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See this link for a listing of some on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
* I would recommend Grisoft's AVG or AVAST.
* These are the more secure and better ones.

Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

Use a Firewall -
* I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer.
* Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over.
* Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
* For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
* I would recommend ZoneAlarm as a firewall as it's easy to use.

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently -
* It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly.
* This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.
* If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (all free), and the updating of them regularly

Install Spybot© - Search and Destroy- Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
* This will provide real-time spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection.
* You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Lavasofts© Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware.
* You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Javacools© SpywareBlaster -
* SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer and Firefox settings and that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
* A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Computer Safety on line - Anti-Malware

Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly.
Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

If you have any addition questions just ask...
David
