Hey guys, I'm not that computer savvy and have run into a problem with pop-ups, etc. that have the computer running slow and doing it's own thing.

I've run Spybot and my virus software, Mcafee. No viruses have been found but various pop-up software/files were found. I removed, them and low-and-behold they are back again.

Found out about Hijackthis from your site and gave it a run. The log is below. Please help. Remember i'm not too big on computer lingo so speak slowly :thumbsup: Thanks in advance.

Hi Hub! welcome to BC. Please read below:

You are infected with a variant of the CoolWebSearch.

Download CWShredder from the below link and unzip it into a directory. Start CWShredder and click on the FIx button to have it remove all CWS infections it finds.

Download CWShredder from:

http://www.merijn.org/files/cwshredder.zip

After you download the program, unzip it into a directory. Make sure all browser windows are closed and double click on the cwshredder.exe to start the program. When the program is loaded click on the "Check for Update" button, and if it finds an new version it will download it. You should then double click on cwshredder.exe again and click on the "FIX" button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan your computer.

To get the best results it is recommended that you run it in safe mode. Reboot windows and press F8 at boot/windows startup, usually right after the beep. Then select safe mode.

A tutorial that goes over this process step by step can be found here:

How to remove CoolWebSearch with CoolWeb Shredder

Once that is completed you should follow these steps in order to clean your computer of Malware which can include Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Hijackers and Dialers

Step 1:
Download Spybot and Adaware from the following locations and install them. You should run both programs and clean up what it finds. This is to gaurantee that you find the most malware you can installed on your computer.

Before running the scans on both programs, it is mandatory that you update the programs. There are update options in each program when you run them.

Spybot

Ad-aware

If you would like to learn more about how to use these two programs with the proper settings you can read the tutorials below:

AD-AWARE - Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware/Hijackers from Your Computer.

SPYBOT SEARCH AND DESTROY - Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer.


When you scan with both programs, fix everything that it finds.

When you are done with the scan and fixing the items. Please continue with the next step.

Step 2:

It is important that you run Spybot and Adaware before you proceed with this step. Fixing enties with Hijackthis may leave behind unwanted files on your computer if the previous step was not done first.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program. Click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post, and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.

To see a tutorial on using HijackThis you can click on the link below:

HijackThis - Using HijackThis to Remove Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers

Ok did as instructed.

Couple things though:

1) I saw elsewhere on this site that when you ran the peper infection correction software you never saw anything happen. In my case that wasn't true. each time i ran it it asked me to delete some files related to memorywatcher.

2) Also, the following files/tasks I was asked to delete were not present:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dsi] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DP-HIM.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [2KG4YP42EWASK4] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\QmtPCB55.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [p4tg37S] WSHINT32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DP-HIM.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\QmtPCB55.exe
c:\windows\system32\wshint32.exe or c:\windows\wshint32.exe

3) And last I couldn't do the disable/enable system restore task b/c it wasn't an option under "Troubleshooting" as the tutorial showed.

Here is the new log:

Bump.....

Can somebody take a look at this latest log. Grinler was helping me. He posted yesterday that he was going to be out of touch for a while.

Boy is it hot here in vegas :thumbsup:

Your log looks completely clean. Great job. You may want to download and install spywareblaster and spybot 1.3. A tutorial on how to do this can be found in my tutorials section.
