Dear help,

I really hope you can help me. I have done some research on how to remove spysheriff and have tried many of the suggestions --- with not much success. I have remove the folders and registry items, but I cannot seem to remove it. Housecall and Bitdefender seemed to help--- I no longer get the pop-up in the corner saying that my computer might be infected. The blue background screen with "your IP address is..." stuff is only in the upper left quarter of the screen, not the entire screen. Although it pops back to full screen. I just deleted the C:windows\wamhp.html associated with the blue screen.

I recently ran smitfraud and it did not reboot at the end, according to the instructions. I had to do a manual reboot.

Also, I am sure this is connected - I cannot disable my wireless and get the following message, "It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This computer may be using one or more protocols that do not support Plug-and-play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account. "

I also cannot turn on my fire wall in the control panel "Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings"

I am posting my HJKT log below, I really appreciate any help I can get. Thank you in advance!!!

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:



Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) to your Desktop.
Extract all the files to your Destop. A folder named SmitfraudFix will be created on your Desktop.


Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press Enter
This program will scan large amounts of files on your computer for known patterns so please be patient while it works. When it is done, the results of the scan will be displayed and it will create a log named rapport.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log.
Posted Image If I have helped you in any way, please consider a donation to help me continue the fight against malware.


Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!

Well, that log comes up clean for us. :thumbsup:


Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of the lines listed below. Then close all other windows--you should only see HijackThis on your Desktop--and click the Fix Checked button.

Reboot your computer.



Please download ComboFix and save it to your desktop.
Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's done running it will produce a log for you. Please post that log in your next reply.

Important Note - Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Buckeye Sam,

I deleted those from hijack this. I ran it again and saw a file O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /installquiet. I looked it up and removed it.

Rebooted and ran Combofix. Log below. I see the same in the HJKT backups???

I ran it again and saw a file O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /installquiet. I looked it up and removed it.

That's a valid file, but not necessary to run on startup.

Associated with the newer versions of nVidia graphics cards drivers. Allows you to immensely improve desktop layouts by setting preferences and optimizations. However, this isn't necessary for the operation of your system


Your logs are clean. Are you having any problems or issues?

Yes,

I still cannot turn on my firewall - tried the control panel and no luck "due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings"

and I cannot disable my wireless network - "It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This computer may be using one or more protocols that do not support Plug-and-play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account. "

With the firewall off I do not want to connect to the internet until things are resolved. The "initiated by another user of system account" and the fact that I cannot disable it makes me think there are still unresolved issues in the system?

thanks again for all the help!

Let's see what we can do.

Download the attached file and extract sharedaccess.reg to your desktop.

Locate sharedaccess.reg on your Desktop and double-click on it. When it asks if you want to merge with the registry, click YES.



Reboot your computer.



After rebooting, click Start -> Run -> cmd
Type in this command and hit enter.

NETSH FIREWALL RESET




Now check your firewall and network settings and let me know if there is any change.

Buckeye Sam,

Ok, thanks for that. My firewall settings are fine and working. however, I still am unable to disable my wireless connection. I get the same error disabling connection message. Is it a plug and play issue or that for some reason the virus iniated something from another account?

thanks heaps!

This is heading more into the area of networking than malware removal, but let's try one thing before I send you over to the networking forum. :thumbsup:

Click Start -> Run -> cmd
Type in these two commands, hitting enter after each one.

net stop cryptsvc

ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2


Reboot your computer and check your connection.

Buckeye Sam,

I connected directly to the router and under the properties -> configure -> driver tab -> update driver. after restarting, I was able to disable the wireless connection.

Is there anything else that I should do or would be better?

thanks.

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • 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 prompts you as to whether or not 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 an AntiVirus 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 online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus 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 succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • 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.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime 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 antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and 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.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Buckeye Sam,

Just wanted to say thank you again for all the help. Thanks also for listing what to do in the future, I will make sure to do a disable/enable system restore. As far as the others, I reguraly update (until I got the virus and took it offline) norton symantec and run scans. I have been updating and running ad-aware and spybot for a few years now. Not sure how my firewall go turned off since I did not turn it off. Am I correct in assuming that spy sheriff turned it off somehow?

Anyway thanks again, you were awesome in your assistance. Thanks to Grinler as well....

cheers
James

To my knowledge Spy Sheriff doesn't affect your firewall, but this malware is continually updating to try to stay ahead of those that remove it. So it wouldn't necessarily surprise me.

I'm glad I could help you out! :thumbsup:
