Everything I've read deals with how to get this off your pc IF you messed up and answered YES, INSTALL. I have not ever answered YES to install it. details...

DriveCleaner Popup.....Top blue bar has: Windows Internet Explorer
Notice: Your computer has tracks of all adult site you have visited. In most cases, you are not even aware of the files that get installed by themselves, violate your online privavy and could compromised your career and your marriage.
These files leave tracks of your online behavior and even compromise your credit card's security. It is possible to clean up all the temporary and history records of your computer to remove these tracks.

Would you like to install DriverCleaner to check your computer for free? (Recommended)


OK and Cancel button to click and an X in a red box at top right of box. Box size on screen is about 3" tall by 10" wide.

I have never clicked ok... always Cancel or X in red box (upper right corner). This notice pops up on my screen randomly... can't put an exact time period on it... just pops up once every hour or so. This started 4 days ago... tried everything I know (which ain't much) so am turning it over to the higher powers. I've noted the only 2 new programs installed recently (marked as suspect in uninstall programs list further down this article). From reading about it online, it appears to take you to the drivercleaner.com website to dl and install this software.

After I click Cancel, another box popsup showing a partial www.drivercleaner.xxx address and saying if download doesn't start automatically, click here..... then within seconds a notice from Norton AntiVirus pops up saying:
"Security Risk Alert, A suspect securty risk has been blocked".
Risk name: DriverCleaner
Risk Category: Security Risk
Action Taken: The file was automatically blocked
and "Scan Now (recommended" in a box below that and OK button.

I click ok, Norton does it's thing, then says the risk has been eliminated. It states something about the file is located in "Documents & Settings\My Name\Temporary Internet Files\IE Content\xxxx.xxx" but doesn't stay on my screen long enough for me to write it down so the path\file written above is just from memory and my not be exact. If I click on the security risk name (what's left on the screen after cleaning) it takes me to Symantec's website here:

http://www.symantec.com/security_response/...-062217-0726-99

This article only states info that Norton AV will clean the infection but I have not installed this software so I should not be infected. Well I am, but not as they describe. So their article has nothing about how to get rid of this pop-up notice, only that Norton will clean the infection if drivercleaner software is installed. I'm needing pre-prevention help on how to get the notice to install the drivercleaner software from appearing on my screen randomly.

I reboot and go about my business online and within seconds, this same crap starts all over again. Norton is not eliminating it and I have Norton 2006 AV with latest updates installed.

When I go into Norton Quarantine and Restore it shows the following:
Name: DriveCleaner
Date: 1/29/2007 2:43:08 PM
Type: Security risk
Risk Impact: Medium
Dependencies: No known dependencies
Submitted to Symantec: Not submitted
Status: Backup

My system info:
Windows XP with SP2 installed (all available MS updates)
MS internet Explorer 7
Norton AntiVirus 2006 (updated)
Ad Aware Pro 6.0 (updated)
SpyBot 1.4 (updated)

Norton won't get rid of it, Adaware won't, Spybot won't either. They all say they've done their thing but this popup just keeps showing up.

Hello Rig_Rat32,

I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:


You have a suspicious file we need to check.

You will need to configure Windows to show Hidden files.

Go to Jotti Online File Scanner copy and paste C:\WINDOWS\msnmessenger.exe to the upload and scan it.

Let me know the results.
Copy and paste the output to this thread

It should look something like this sample:

File: GoogleToolbarInstaller.exe
Status: MIGHT BE INFECTED/MALWARE (Sandbox emulation took a long time and/or runtime packers were found, this is suspicious. Normally programs aren't packed and don't force the sandbox into lengthy emulation. Do realize no scanner issued any warning, the file can very well be harmless. Caution is advised, however.)
Packers detected: CEXE

AntiVir No viruses found (0.15 seconds taken)
Avast No viruses found (1.51 seconds taken)
BitDefender No viruses found (0.97 seconds taken)
ClamAV No viruses found (0.39 seconds taken)
Dr.Web No viruses found (0.52 seconds taken)
F-Prot Antivirus No viruses found (0.06 seconds taken)
Kaspersky Anti-Virus No viruses found (0.74 seconds taken)
mks_vir No viruses found (0.21 seconds taken)
NOD32 No viruses found (0.42 seconds taken)
Norman Virus Control No viruses found (0.40 seconds taken)


If Jotti's Malware scan is busy, you can use this one:

Sorry for the delay and thanks for responding. I checked the file msnmessenger and here's the report on it:

File: msnmessenger.exe
Status: POSSIBLY INFECTED/MALWARE (Note: this file was only classified as malware by scanners known to generate more false positives than the average scanner. Do not consider these results definately accurate. Also, because of this, results of this scan will not be recorded in the database.)
MD5 7f4fcdb0d28dda7f1fabafc19f07478b
Packers detected: UPX

Scanner results
Scan taken on 02 Feb 2007 06:31:50 (GMT)
AntiVir Found TR/Crypt.FKM.Gen
ArcaVir Found nothing
Avast Found nothing
AVG Antivirus Found nothing
BitDefender Found nothing
ClamAV Found nothing
Dr.Web Found nothing
F-Prot Antivirus Found nothing
F-Secure Anti-Virus Found nothing
Fortinet Found nothing
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Found nothing
NOD32 Found nothing
Norman Virus Control Found nothing
VirusBuster Found nothing
VBA32 Found nothing

Ok, I've stopped at this point (will update Java first thing tommorow) but I need some advice as I'm uncertain how to proceed with instructions beyond Java.

Here's my problem. In regular bootup I have 2 users, USER1 and Guests. In Safe Mode, USER1 (me) is missing from the users list. In Safe Mode only Guests, USER2, and Administrator is listed there. If I sign-in as Administrator, I cannot see or access the files in USER1 folder. Will this have any effect on running SDFIX.EXE so as to clean out the files you listed? Sorry to be so dumb but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

And can you advise on what I need to do with msnmessenger.exe?

No, it should not have an effect on running SDFIX. Just follow my instructions. :thumbsup:

We will see if SDFIX removes the msnmessenger.exe. If not, we will kill it another way.

Ok, I uninstalled the Java apps you listed. From that time on, I had a lot of trouble with my pc taking forever (3-4 minutes) to boot up. I installed the Java 6 but still pc was very slow to boot. It's taking about 2-3 times longer for the pc to boot into the desktop.

I ran SDFIX and here's the report on it:

I then rebooted and found and deleted C:\Windows\MsnMessenger.exe

Ok, I uninstalled the Java apps you listed. From that time on, I had a lot of trouble with my pc taking forever (3-4 minutes) to boot up. I installed the Java 6 but still pc was very slow to boot. It's taking about 2-3 times longer for the pc to boot into the desktop.


I have never heard of Java 6 making bootup time longer, and have seen many hundred of these Java 6 installs and had no problems. The latest Java 6 is not prone to get malware as the earlier versions. It is up to you, if you want you can go back to the earlier version go here: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/previous.jsp
I really doubt that is your bootup problem.



Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best). Do not run it yet!

CCleaner Tutorial


*******************************************

In Normal Mode, select the following with HijackThis.
With all windows (including this one!) closed (close browser/explorer windows), please select "fix.

The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but I suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvMediaCenter] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvMcTray.dll,NvTaskbarInit
(Description: Nvidia system tray applet. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] \"C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\jusched.exe\"
(Description: Sun Java update scheduler. Checks for updates. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Gamma Loader.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Calibration\Adobe Gamma Loader.exe
(Description: Adjusts monitor colours across all programs, including Photoshop. It is needed by some graphics professionals who want their monitor calibrated. Most home users will not need it, and thus should remove this entry. )

*******************************************

*NOTE* CCleaner deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

Let's empty the temp files:

Run CCleaner.

1. Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation.
IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build.


2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

3. Then select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:
Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section except Cookies.
Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section.
Clean all entries in the "System" section.
Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab:
Clean all except cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
Clean all in the Opera section if you use it.
Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section.
Clean any others that you choose.

4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
7. Click "exit" when done.

If it asks you to reboot at the end, click NO.

CCleaner should be run with the above settings for each User Account!

*******************************************


Finally, reboot to the Normal Mode , post a new Hijackthis log, and tell me how your computer is running.
If I've saved you time & money,
please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you! You can donate using a credit card and PayPal. Thank you!

I wasn't sure if I needed to start pc in safe mode before running ccleaner but did it that way to be safe.

Pc is running good, boot time is now normal. It does take HiJackThis a long time to complete but I think I figured out why. It stalls for a long time on 015 Checking Trusted Sites. A short time ago I installed IESpyAd. It writes a ton of website addresses to the registry so I suspect that's why HiJackThis takes like 3.5 minutes to produce a log file. Before I added IESpyAd, HiJackThis would finish in seconds.

Hi Rig_Rat32,


Your log looks clean! :thumbsup: Good job on the cleanup! :flowers:

Let's clean your System Restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows.
The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files.
This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)

1. Turn off System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK

2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

System Restore will now be active again.


Please read and follow How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!
