Posted 17 August 2006 - 05:52 PM

I have computer bugs. I get a win32 error pop up occasionally & the taskbar goes weird & it changes, then changes back.

I have run AVG, adaware, spybot, crap cleaner, mcafee stinger, bitdefender, ewido, & tune up & a few other things but it is still messed up. I updated windows, made sure all the updates were current. Turned off restore before restarting & made a new restore point. STILL I get the win32 popup, so obviously I need expert help with this problem.

I added a firewall since posting...Comodo is the one I installed.

Here is my Hijack this log.

In advance...Thank you for your help!

Do you remember what the message says when you get a win32 error?
Check this link to see if it helps you.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;821690

Is this your ISP?
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{A6AA74DE-28D9-418B-893A-CD3ADB977578}: NameServer = 205.160.234.1,205.160.234.10

The following indicates that you may be using a Proxy. Are you?
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8080

Step 1

Please download Ad-Aware SE

Using Ad-Aware To Remove Spyware From Your Computer Please check this link for instructions on how to download, install and use Ad-Aware. Run this program as soon as possible.

Step 2

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an activeX to run.
  • Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
  • Detects and removes grayware and spyware
  • Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
  • Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
  • Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
  • Easy-to-use with the following browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox
When you have completed the scans, if you get a report of files that can’t be cleaned / deleted, please write down the filenames and locations and post that in your reply.

Step 3
Please download the ATF-Cleaner ATF-Cleaner features include:
  • Cleaning of all user temp folders, administrator only can use this feature.
  • Cleaning of the Java cache, which seems to be harbouring more and more malware.
  • Cleaning for the Opera browser, including Operas cache, cookies, history, download history, saved passwords and visited links
Do not run it yet.

Step 4
You may want to print out this page. Make sure to work through the fixes in the order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

The above O6 should only be present for one or more of the following reasons:
  • You set the restrictions on purpose.
  • You used an anti-spyware program like Spybot S&D's Home Page and Option Lock down features in the Immunize section of Spybot.
  • Your workplace administrator or network administrator set the restrictions.
If none of the above reasons apply, check it to be fixed with HijackThis.

Now we will address the HijackThis fixes.

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan." Place checks next to the following entries (make sure not to miss any):

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - <default> - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C8B2A36-3DB1-42A4-A3CB-D426709BBFEB} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {E7066057-DEB4-4688-91CA-5FA4085D3EA4} - (no file)
O16 - DPF: {15AD6789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - http://static.windupdates.com/cab/MediaAcc...Bridge-c139.cab


Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Step 5

Let’s run ATF-Cleaner to ensure no malware is hiding in temporary folders and for general computer cleanup to free space on your computer.

Step 6

Please run HijackThis again and post a fresh log so I can make sure that all the malware was deleted according to plan

Yes. It is the DNS Server

The following indicates that you may be using a Proxy. Are you?
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8080


I don't know if I am using a proxy or not. Can you tell me how to find this out? I have cable broadband internet.

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present


Is this entry possibly because I hid the control panel? I did that a couple of yrs ago to keep my young teenager out of it, since he found out how to change his priveleges to admin lol!



I am following the instructions now & will come back later with the new HJT log. Thank you again.

Please do the HijackThis scan in normal mode. In safe mode, some viruses are able to hide.

Yes, the O6 entry would be because you set the restrictions yourself.

You or someone on your computer would have to deliberately set up a proxy. You can check by doing the following.

1. Click "Service" \ "Internet Options";
2. Click "Connections";
3. If you use Dial-Up connection, choose your connection and click "Settings" button.
if you use LAN connection, click "LAN Settings" button in the "Local Area Network (LAN) Settings" group box;
4. Enable "use a proxy server";
5. In fields "Address" and "port", type proxy name and proxy port number;
6. If nessesary, enable "bypass proxy server for local addresses";
7. Click "OK";
8. Click "OK" to close IE settings.

I will investigate further to see if there is another way for that entry to be there.

P. S. Got the answer from ChrisRLG at Malware Removal Forum.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8080

That entry is often set by AV (and other security) software to force through a filter directly on their own machine.

The clue is the localhost part - that shows that another program in his machine is acting as the proxy.

I am back finally from running all the anti-spyware scans & following your other suggestions. When I checked the proxy status in internet options, the box is not checked to use a proxy but when I check the box & click advanced, local host:8080 shows as the proxy. According to HJT, startpage guard restricts the policies, used by hijackers. I do have guard running in processes, as part of ewido. Should I end that process & click that box in HJT to fix? I may uninstall ewido anyway because pest patrol was the program that helped me the most of any I have tried in the last week so I am keeping it.

It found & cleaned out ezula, accoona, mediapipe, grokster, & other spyware.

Here is my fresh log. Thanks for your help.

I noticed that you have not updated to the Windows XP Service Pack 2. Please use this link, Windows XP Service Pack 2. Or order the Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD. It is critical that you update your computer. This will ensure your computer has the latest security updates available installed on your computer.

After installing all the Microsoft updates, please post another HijackThis log to make sure that everything is as it should be and to make sure that all the malware was deleted according to plan.

I am back again. I did all the windows updates including installing sp2. The pop problem has been fixed, I think. It was the generic host error & the patch I got here http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms06-040.mspx has fixed it I think.

The only problem I am having is video isn't playing on the net. It's not a local problem because dvds plays fine, speakers are fine...but internet audio & video will not play like videos clips at you tube.

Here is a fresh log. How does it look? Thank you again for your assistance in cleaning my machine.

EDIT: I don't get this. I installed sp2 but HJT says I still have sp1?

Correction: I checked microsoft & there was an error in the install of sp2. I tried again 3 times & it failed each time. Using my winxp cd to fix system files & now sp2 is being downloaded. Crossing fingers, it installs ok. Will update my log as soon as that is done.

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan." Place checks next to the following entries (make sure not to miss any):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UserFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -u
O20 - Winlogon Notify: WRNotifier - WRLogonNTF.dll (file missing)
old SpySweeper file

Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

You changed to the Ashampoo-Firewall. You may want to read what some are saying about the Ashampoo-Firewall at WildersSecurity forum.

The firewall however is new, and according to a recent Wilderssecurity thread there are better alternatives: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=140427

Please post a new HijackThis log.

Thanks for the info about the firewall. I was looking for an easy one that doesn't use a lot of memory. I am reading info at the link you gave me so I can chose another one. I unistalled & updated Java because I was reading that it should be the newest to prevent malware. Now the updater is running in services.

Re the proxy, how should I correct that? I use free AVG free anti-virus & I don't think that did it. I am not sure what program did it. Possibly spy sweeper or ewido? I don't use them now but maybe the proxy settings stayed.

Here is a fresh HJT log.

Your HijackThis log is looking much better.

Re the proxy, how should I correct that? I use free AVG free anti-virus & I don't think that did it. I am not sure what program did it. Possibly spy sweeper or ewido? I don't use them now but maybe the proxy settings stayed


That entry is harmless. It just means that inquiries are going through this program and then to your computer.

You may want to do this optional fix. If so, scan with HijackThis and place a check mark by the entry.

You have jusched.exe running at Startup. It checks with Sun's Java updates site to see if newer Java versions are available. This program is not required to start automatically. You can do this manually by visiting http://java.sun.com or just run the Java Plug-In Control Panel. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_05\bin\jusched.exe

Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Please post a new HijackThis log.

Does this refer to the proxy entries or the Java updater? If I fix, would I check both R1 entries?
These:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8080
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = ;localhost;<local>

Is there a benefit to leaving a proxy setup from whatever program created it?

I fixed the Java update entry.

Thank you tremendously for what you do to assist people in cleaning their machines.

That entry is harmless. It just means that inquiries are going through this program and then to your computer.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8080
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = ;localhost;<local>


If the above entries said anything that was not local, it would certainly be worth investigating.

Fixing it now, without knowing where it came from, could slow you down or even get in the way of one of your security applications.

You are using AVG so the following information would apply:

If you are using anti-virus software that has an email virus scanner that uses localhost to create and run links to and from email clients, this is to override the connection for just the 127.0.0.x IP coding so it can work. It is normal for antivirus email software that uses that method to provide that line. For example, the connection is between Outlook Express and Norton. By having a proxy that will direct all IP's via the proxy (Unless over ridden), the email would be lost.

Your log appears to be clean. Please advise me of any problems you still have.

Please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. If you are using Windows XP then you should disable and enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.
    You can find instructions on how to disable and enable system restore here:
    Windows XP System Restore Guide
  • 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 asks you if 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.
  • Use IE-SPYAD Install IE SPYAD. Add another level of protection to your Internet Explorer browser by blocking certain sites that are known to contain malware. IE SPYAD puts several thousand sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. If you happen on a site within its list, they can't hijack you or install anything. Program is free and is updated about once a month. Please follow readme instructions for install; it is a little different. Single user PC use IE Spyad1. Multi user XP PC use IE Spyad2.
    Computer Safety On line Anti Virus
  • Update your Anti Virus Software It is imperative 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.
  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently It is important that you visit Microsoft Windows Update regularly. This will ensure your computer has 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.
  • You should scan your computer with Spybot S&D on a regular basis just as you would an anti- virus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer
  • You should scan your computer with Ad-Aware as well as Spybot S&D and your anti-virus program on a regular basis. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using Ad-Aware SE to remove Spyware & Hijackers from Your Computer
  • Install SpywareBlaster SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. An article on anti malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
    Computer Safety on line Anti Malware
  • Use the hosts file: Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them. In a very basic sense, they are used to locate web pages. We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain web pages. However, it can slow down certain computers. This is why using a hosts file is optional. Download mvps hosts file Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial HERE If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    • Click the start button on the task bar at the bottom of your screen
    • Click run
    • In the dialog box, type services.msc
    • hit enter, then locate dns client
    • Highlight it, then doubleclick it.
    • On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    • Click ok..
  • Use an alternative instant messenger program.Trillian and Miranda IM These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Please read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place
  • Please read Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers
  • Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from HERE
  • 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 your computer was infected by a website, a program, IM, MSN, or p2p, check this site because it is Time To Fight Back.
Follow these steps and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
Good luck!
