Posted 25 August 2006 - 09:06 PM

I have been trying to help fix a computer that is now somehow riddled with Trojans, a worm and everything else. I have run Spybot, Ad-Aware, HijackThis, PC-Cillin & The Cleaner and gotten rid of hundreds of spyware, viruses and Trojans. But for the most part, these keep coming back because I am not getting rid of the source. Also, I have run Spybot and Ad-Aware in safe mode several times.
I followed the instructions to get rid of SurfSideKick, but none of the items matched exactly, so I wanted to make sure I was not missing anything. There are a few that are obviously bad (like the Hijacked Internet Access ones), so I tried to delete them and I got a message saying that they could not be deleted. I am sorry I do not have the exact words, but the message was shut down by someone before I could copy it. Any advise as to what I should do if it says I cannot delete the items again?
If anyone could help me, I would be eternally grateful :thumbsup:
Thank you!!

Here is the Logfile:

Welcome aboard... :thumbsup:

Nice collection there :flowers:

Lets get started. 1) Please be patient 2) ASK if you have anything to ask 3) This might take considerable amount of time so please try to reply in timely manners 4) Make sure you are subscriped to this thread so you get an email notification anytime I reply -- from the right hand uppercorner of this topic, click on "Options" and choose "Track this Topic". Choose "Immediate Email notification" and hit "Subscripe".


First, please download LSPfix.exe to a convenient location. Do NOT run this program. This is only to be used if you lose Internet Access after removing NewDotNet & WebHancer.

To get rid of NewDotNet and WebHancer, go to:

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following:

New.Net Applications or New.Net Domains (anything that says New.Net)

WebHancer or WebHancer Customer Companion (anything that says WebHancer)

If New.Net is not there, go here and follow Procedure 4; NewDotNet Removal Procedure 4.

If WebHancer is not there, please surf here, download & run the removal tool.

After the uninstallation, remember to delete this folder: C:\Program Files\NewDotNet (Or might be named New.Net)

Aswell as this folder: C:\Program Files\webHancer

Empty recycle bin.

In the event that you lose Internet access after removing New.Net & WebHancer, please double-click LSPFix.exe that you downloaded earlier. You will see 2 panels. If there is any file listed in the "Remove" panel on the right-side, leave it as is and just click "Finish>>" then reboot your computer and you should now have access to the Internet. If nothing is listed under the "Remove Panel", do NOT do anything - just close the program. You will need to use another computer to come back here for further instructions on what to do.


Once that is done...

Please download SmitfraudFix © 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 (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.


Download Combofix to your desktop:
  • Double-click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply along with the C:\rapport.txt. :huh:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
Hi there, stranger!

Dearest Rawe,
Thank you so much for your quick response! I wanted to let you know that since I am assisting a friend with this, I unfortunately am not with the evil machine at all times. However, I will be there later tonight, armed with the downloads on my keydrive and print-outs of your instrutctions so I can begin (or rather, continue) fighting my battle :thumbsup:
Also, I am going to turn the wireless back on (we have it turned off because of our lovely list of diseases!) so I will be able to access the Internet with my laptop and communicate with you :flowers: I will be there all next week during the day. Later tonight I will report back, and, I am guessing you might want me to post the logfile after I have followed your instructions, so I will copy and post it for you.
Starting Monday I will be there again, ready for phase 2.
I wanted to tell you to let you know that so you did not feel I was being rude by ignoring your request that I respond quickly. If it is too much trouble for you that I am not with the computer at all times (until Monday) , I understand. Thank you for your willingness to help!

Thank you again, Rawe! You are my hero :huh:

I will post again tonight~

Sure thing :thumbsup:

Later tonight I will report back, and, I am guessing you might want me to post the logfile after I have followed your instructions, so I will copy and post it for you.

Yep it's all in the instructions listed which logs I need, usually they are from the tools we are going to run.

Starting Monday I will be there again, ready for phase 2.
I wanted to tell you to let you know that so you did not feel I was being rude by ignoring your request that I respond quickly. If it is too much trouble for you that I am not with the computer at all times (until Monday) , I understand.

Right, and no, I don't feel its rude or anything, you have to do what you have to do. As long as you stick to the instructions until I let you know when it's completely clean (since, even if the problems went away, it might not mean it's yet clean). :flowers:

Hi there :thumbsup: Wow. Ok! I followed your instructions and I think I got rid of of those two beasts...I hope!
I did lose Internet access and I ran LSPFix.exe. There were no items on the right side, so I did nothing, but we still do not have Internet.

Here is the ComboFix File:

Before continuing the cleanup lets try getting that internet access back to the infected PC. :thumbsup:

Download and run WinsockXPFix.

Do an reg-backup first though. Then click the "Fix" button. Continue with any instructions it gives after that (mostly prompts probably if anything). Let me know how it works out :flowers:

Hi :huh:
Ok, sounds good. If I am successful, I will post a reply from there. If not, I will have to wait until I get home later :thumbsup:
But I have a question: How do I do a reg-backup?
Sorry! Maybe I know this already... I am slow this morning :flowers:
Thank you again :huh:

What a day! Ok, I ran the program and did the Reg backup and restored Internet access.
Then, every time I went to Bleepingcomputer.com and clicked on the link to this discussion, the browser would suddenly close. I re-booted several times and it did the same thing. So I spent a long time on the phone with Linksys support to see if I could at least get the router working so I could post this using my laptop. That worked for a second, then I had no connection on either machine. I called back. I was up and running again until a little while ago, when inexplicably, only the wireless connection on my laptop worked.
A moment go, I reset the router and unplugged the modem etc..etc... and now I have a connection on both machines again! Phew :thumbsup:

Now, I just tried opening the link to this discussion again (on the desktop) and, once more, the browser suddenly shuts down. But apparently the Internet connection is fine. Perhaps this has something to do with how infected that computer is? Some of the links on the desktop are randomly unresponsive. After a re-boot they usually work, but that all depends.
So I am posting this from my laptop.

AHHHHHHH!!! :flowers:

Sorry for rambling, I just thought maybe I should let you know, just incase it matters...

Ok so let me get this straight, you have internet access on the infected machine (good). But you can't access this discussion as the browser simply times out?

But you can access here with the clean machine.. Right? It's still helpful if you have the net on the infected machine. Simply print the instructions on the other computer and then follow them on the infected one?

Then post the logs here on the clean one.. But be sure to try on the infected one from time to time as it might just be because of the infections since you have a lot of them :thumbsup:

You got it!
I am using my laptop (clean) here with the desktop (diiirrrrty!!).
I have basically been running Spybot, AdAware and The Cleaner (sometimes in safe mode) to keep the spyware under control while I work on it. However, I thought I got rid of WebHancer (Spybot said it fixed it after I followed the steps to uninstall it), but Spybot found it again today and said it could not remove it.
I think this means that another virus that I have not gotten rid of is re-installing it. So I am getting rid of the symptoms, not the diseases?


What should I do next?
You are the best~ Thank you for your continued help :flowers:

Ok, I believe our efforts have been vetoed...The friend I am helping wants to get a new computer :huh:
I told them it was fixable, but I understand where they are coming from... One does need a computer, after all :huh:

You are a sweetheart :thumbsup:
Will you marry me?

Don't worry... I am female :flowers: But is it sexist of me to assume you are male??? Yep, it is.

Ha ha! I am ridiculous! Thank you again for putting up with me~ I learned a lot :huh:

Although, I have to say, I am a bit disappointed. I wanted to know what to do next... I know you could have fixed it vicariously through me! The thing probably needs to be reformatted, though...

Next would have been SmitFraudFix cleaning, aswell as Ewido Anti-Spyware + Alcanshorty.bfu.... That would have cleaned massively. Let me know if your friend still comes to other thoughts about this and wants to get this one cleaned :thumbsup: And yes I'm male, will be turning 16 next month :flowers:

I knew it was about to get good! Oh well, if they change their minds, you will be hearing from me :thumbsup:

Almost 16, eh? Ok, well I am a few years older than you...but not by too much, actually :flowers:
It would still make me a cradle-robber though :huh:

Edit: Welcome back :thumbsup:

Please post back with a fresh HijackThis log and also delete your current SmitFraudFix as it has been updated, then download the latest one from the same link as earlier and post the log from option #1. :flowers:
