5 out of 6 times when I click a URL from any page the status bar shows Waiting for 69.50.190.131..... then Waiting for www.loanlow.net , or www.speakfind.com, and then will sometimes redirect me to a Google search results page for things like "woman sex" or "ass", or redirects me to, you guessed it, porn ! And not the good kind either !

I've tried everything I can, SpyBot, Adaware, Microsoft Defender, Symantec doesn't even find it.
If anyone knows about this trojan or how to clean my registry or whatever I have to do, any advice is greatly appreciated, this site has never let me down before!

Here is my HijackThis Log:

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.

You are using the LimeWire p2p file sharing program.
This is not technically malware by itself, but it installs malware in order to run properly.
It also opens the door for every other nasty program you can think of.
I strongly recommend that you remove it from your computer.
Read this article for alternatives that will provide some of the same function without the garbage:
http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/

I suggest you remove the program now.
Of course if you decide to keep it, it's not a problem.
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present:
LimeWire

This is another article you can read:
http://www.cexx.org/adware.htm

I see you have Viewpoint installed.
Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article: http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546
I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.
  • Viewpoint
  • Viewpoint Manager
  • Viewpoint Media Player
You are missing one important program on that computer - an antivirus!
This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.
You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer.
AVG and Avast are excellent, free antivirus programs..
Never install more than one antivirus on your system - several together can cause problems and decrease performance.

Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

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

Go to Control Panel. - If you are using Windows XP's Category View, select the Network and Internet Connections category. If you are in Classic View, go to the next step .
  • Double-click the Network Connections icon
  • Right-click the Local Area Connection icon and select Properties.
  • Hilight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click the Properties button.
  • Be sure Obtain DNS server address automatically is selected.
  • OK your way out.
Go to Start > Run and type in cmd
Click OK.
This will open a commad prompt.
Type or copy and paste the following line in the command window:

ipconfig /flushdns

Hit Enter
Exit the command window

Please download FixWareout from one of these sites:
http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/lonny/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts. If your firewall gives an alert, (because this tool will download an additional file from the internet), please don't let your firewall block it, but allow it instead.
Then you will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

Once the desktop loads please post the text that will open (report.txt) and a new Hijackthis log.

David

David,

Thank you for helping me, I have followed your instructions and have installed Symantec Corporate Edition.
Here is the Fixwareout report and a new Hijackthis list. And by the way, Windows Security Alerts keeps popping up saying I do not have an antvirus program and then reccomends that I install one, even though Symantec is installed and running - is this because my virus software is not from Microsoft? Is there a way to make the Security Center reconize Symantec?

Again thank you for your assistance, a donation is definitely comming your way


Fixwareout ver 1.003

Hey there deeJslowface

I read into your problem with Symantec and it seems to be quite a common problem. I found the following question and answer on a microsoft website. It appears there is a detection problem with SP2 machines with Symantec and XP security centre:

Question : What about Symantec? Why does Windows Security Center not detect the status of Norton products?

Answer : Symantec’s product status architecture is unique among firewall and antivirus manufacturers and requires a different approach to guarantee detection of Symantec products. Symantec is in the process of developing WMI providers and has plans to distribute the WMI providers to all active customers shortly after Windows XP SP2 releases. The Symantec WMI providers will enable full detection by Windows Security Center for active Norton customers.

Without the updated WMI providers, Windows Security Center will detect only whether Norton products exist. No status detection will be available. You will receive a “red alert” message because Windows XP could not detect an up-to-date and active antivirus program. For more information about Symantec and Windows XP SP2, visit the following Symantec Web site:
http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/sp2/faq.html (http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/sp2/faq.html)
Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information.

I would recommend that you turn off this notification for the time being.
No doubt it will get pretty annoying after a while for you.
To turn off all notifications, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type wscui.cpl, and then click OK.
2. In the Resources area, click Change the way Security Center alerts me.
3. Untick the following check box: Virus Protection
4. Click OK.

Next, open hijackthis, click 'config' (bottom right)
Choose the tab 'misc Tools' on top.
Choose 'delete a file on reboot'
In the field, copy and paste next:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\{55BC2BDE-B817-42FE-83FF-852C3A2BCE63}.exe

Click open.
Hijackthis will tell you that this file will be deleted on next reboot and if you want to reboot now.
When asked if you want to reboot now, say Yes.

After the reboot pleas run Panda online scan.
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.

Good luck,
David

David,

Followed your directions, Panda scanned and fortunately when completed it said:

No viruses or other malicious software have been found!

Everything seems to be back to normal, I greatly appreciate what you've done and I will continue support this website and refer all of my friends to come here with their computer questions.

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
