Posted 10 August 2006 - 09:35 PM

My most pressing issue at the moment is that i have some sort of virus or trojan on my computer. I cannot run internet explorer, my Content.IE5 folder seems to have been hidden (though i can still access it through Start>Run), some pop-up concerning winanitvirus pro 2006 appears periodically (my antivirus displays "winfixer" security risk alerts and shows the location of files in my Content.IE5 folder), and now to top it all off, explorer.exe will not run in safe mode. :thumbsup: *sigh* My HJT log file:

Hello,

Can you rename Hijackthis.exe to Analyse.exe
Then scan with Analyse.exe and post the log in your next reply (which will be a hijackthislog ofcourse)

I cannot run internet explorer, my Content.IE5 folder seems to have been hidden (though i can still access it through Start>Run),


yes, that's normal and that's on every system like that, so don't worry about that. :thumbsup:

To add to the above list of problems i see that Control Panel won't open either. Like all the others when i click it the taskbar kind of flashes or explorer.exe reloads but nothing happens.

Hello,

The problems you are having now is because of the infection that is present.

Perform my next steps in the right order...

Please download VundoFix.exe to your C:\.
  • Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
  • Put a check next to Run VundoFix as a task.
  • You will receive a message saying vundofix will close and re-open in a minute or less. Click OK
  • When VundoFix re-opens, click the Scan for Vundo button.
  • Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
  • In case it says that nothing was been found, Right click the list box (white box) in the main VundoFix window.
  • Select “Add More Files?” from the menu that comes up. This will open a new VundoFix window.
  • In the Window: copy and paste next in the first field: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ddabb.dll
  • Copy and paste next in the second field: C:\WINDOWS\System32\bbadd.*
  • Click the “Add Files” button.
  • Click the "Close Window" button.
  • Click the Remove Vundo button.
  • You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
  • Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
  • When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click OK.
  • Turn your computer back on.

Hello,

Above log looks clean again..;

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 8.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name. It should have the Posted Image icon next to it.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-1_5_0_08-windowsi586-p.exe to install the newest version.

All is now well :thumbsup: The problems i first discribed have been rectified.


Much gratitude to you for the assistance. :flowers:

Many thanks.

-<<Kiranau§>>-

P.S. I hear the 4.10.9 version of LimeWire is a better choice than the most up to date. Would that be the 4.10.9 BETA or is it a different one.

Glad I could help. :thumbsup:

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

If you are having XP SP2, read here how to configure Security Features for Internet Explorer:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...xp/iesecxp.mspx

Also visit this Free Online Scanner for PC Health and Safety and Microsoft Security At Home for tips to Protect your Pc, Protect yourself and Protect your Family.

I have no idea... I don't use Limewire, because p2p programs in general are still a risk. Malware uses these p2p programs as well to spread.
Just make sure that the p2p programs you install don't start up with Windows.
