Hi All,

I'm walking back and forth between my two household PCs. My son (12) got suckered into downloading a "movie viewer" at YouTube. Of course, it immediately set to work filling his System Tray with goodies, like this message: Critial System Errors! System detected virus activities. They may cause critical system failure. Please use AntiSpyware software to clean and protect your system from parasite programs. Click this balloon to get all available software. Fortunately, he didn't click it. I have used HJT successfully in the past so I ran through that routine and fixed most of the stuff. But I had to download the Smitfraud remover from "Siri" and run a log of that also. But my usual guys who analyze logs seem to be on vacation this week and are not around. Is there somebody here who can analyze a Smitfraud log and tell me which buttons to push on the Smitfraud remover tool? It says, run the log but don't do anything without consulting a knowledgeable source of help. Here's the log:

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a new hijack log.

The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Warning: running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.

Looks better - lets run one more thin

Download AVG Anti-Spyware from http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and save that file to your desktop. Note: This is NOT the Anti Virus from AVG.

When the trial period expires it becomes feature-limited freeware but is still worth keeping as a good on-demand scanner.
1. Once you have downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double click it to launch the set up program.
2. Once the setup is complete you will need run AVG Anti-Spyware and update the definition files.
3. On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
o Next select the "Start Update" button. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
4. Once the update has completed, select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
5. Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
6. Under "Reports"
o Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
o Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close AVG Anti-Spyware. Do Not run a scan just yet, we will run it in safe mode.
1. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.

IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while AVG Anti-Spyware is scanning as it may interfere with the scanning process:
2. Launch AVG Anti-Spyware by double clicking the icon on your desktop.
3. Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
4. AVG will now begin the scanning process. Please be patient as this may take a little time.
Once the scan is complete, do the following:
5. If you have any infections you will be prompted. Then select "Apply all actions."
6. Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
7. Select the "Save report as" button in the lower lef- hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file. This is important).
8. Close AVG Anti-Spyware and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.
Post the log from AVG and a new HiJack log

MFD, Moderator Animal has asked me to have you read a thread I just opened concerning Windows XP search problems. It might be related to malware. Please read it and give me your opinion. I won't be able to run your prescribed fixes above until later this evening. After I do, I'll post new logs. Thanks, Ebo.

The comment about themeui.dll being in system32 is wrong - it is valid there

Lets finish with the log, I do not think it is a problem and allow explorer

Hi MFD, Here's the latest HJT log. I ran the AVG program and it took about an hour in Safe Mode to scan my son's computer. I think I screwed up though because I tried to save the AVG log to the A:\ drive so I could sneakernet it back over to my computer. But when I opened the text file for the AVG log, it was nothing but little square boxes where the text should be. So I guess I'll have to spend another hour re-doing it and make sure I save it to his C:\ drive, then put it on his A:\ drive and bring it back to my computer and paste it in here.

Anyway, AVG found about 32 tracking cookies and 3 adware programs and deleted the cookies and quarantined the adware so I guess I'm good to go for a while on that one.

But I still have the issues to deal with on my computer now, the one that I spoke of earlier, where I'm getting explorer.exe trying to access the Internet and getting Windows Error boxes that like to freeze up my screen.

I'm sorry for the confusion. I must have been pretty bleary-eyed yesterday dealing with two different computers and their separate problems. Anyway, here's the HJT log from my son's computer. I think we've satisfied that issue. Thanks. Ebo

OK, specifically, I'll repeat what I wrote on a different thread. I apologize for the length here, but I have to report what I'm seeing. As for the specific content of the error messages, I guess I'll have to retrace my steps and see if I can get one to pop up and copy it for you.


I'm running Norton Internet Security. I have it set to report when programs are trying to access the Internet.

It's been a real eye-opener. I don't use Internet Explorer for anything. I use Mozilla Firefox for my browser. I can't even open the Windows XP search window without that $##!@%^ Explorer.exe trying to access the Internet. What's it doing, reporting all my lookups to Microsoft?

For instance, if I wanted to look up a file folder using search, I'd hit Start > Search > and get to the "Search results window" and hit > What do you want to search for? > and as soon as windows finds my hard drives and removable drives, I get a Norton Internet Security window warning me: "Explorer.exe is attempting to access the Internet." It says "Medium Risk" In the details box of that window it lists something like this sample:

Program: Explorer.exe
Path: C:\windows\
Date/time: 11/22/2006 5:56 p.m.
Module: C:\windows\srchasst\srchctls.dll
Module: C:\windows\srchasst\srcui.dll
Module: C:\program files\ norton internet security\...
Module: C:\program files\adobe acrobat 7.0\active...
Module: C:\windows\system 32\batmeter.dll
Module: C:\windows\system 32\stobject.dll
Module: C:\windows\system 32\themeui.dll
Remote Address: 192.168 [My ISP's full address]
Local Address: [same full ISP address with different ending]
Protocol: UDP (outbound)
Location: Home

Then there is a Norton "What do you want to do?" Toggle box with two choices: Block always (recommended) and Allow Always.

So if I hit "Block Always"

The Norton Security box pops up immediately, saying Explorer.exe is attempting to access the Internet.

I have to hit "Block Always" exactly 11 times in order to get that box to go away so that the search can proceed.

Then I hit: "All files and Folders"
Hit: "Look in: "Local Disk (C:\)"
Hit: "Search" and find the folder I'm looking for, highlight it and then select "stop" and "yes, finished searching"

Then at long last I double click the folder I'm trying to access and more often than not, I get one of those Windows Error Message boxes that says an error has occurred and asks if I would like to report this error to Microsoft. If I hit "Yes" it may shut my screen down, or it might let me go on. But if I hit "No" as in I don't want to report my computer's malfunction to Microsoft, I get the frozen screen of death and I have to do a "Control+Alt+Delete" to get to a screen that asks me if I want to log off of my user session. I hit "yes" and a few minutes later, after the computer clicks and moans, I am finally back to my user log-in screen and I have to give my password and log back in to get to windows. Naturally, if I had any other windows open or work in progress, it's lost.

What's going on?

MFD, OK, I tried to replicate the first biggest concern, which was the Norton Anti-Virus message window that was warning me that "explorer.exe" was attempting to access the Internet. It turns out, it's Napster. I used to be a Napster subscriber, but I canceled after 7 months. Napster software is still on my computer. Each time I open Windows Media Player Napster seems to want to know about it. (Possibly for making sure nobody plays music that doesn't belong to them). Anyway, I can't make the error message come back any more so I guess we're good to go here. If you don't see anything in my last HJT log, I guess it's fixed. Thanks!
