This is a hijackthis log after running full system scans with the most recent/updated Spybot S&D, Adaware SE, AVG Antivirus, and AVG Anti-Spyware. When I ran these scans, they found a total of about ~200 different trojans/tracking cookies, all of which were deleted, at least according to the software. I just want to make sure that I'm fully clean now and it is why I'm posting this log. Thanks for the help!

Hello Ryuko, my name is David, welcome to BC!

My first remark is to say that yes, unfortunately you are infected. To be more specific, from the Hijackthis log you posted I can see you are infected with a rootkit, which are capable of backdoor activity. To be brief, due to the status of some of the files you have on your computer, I strongly recommend that you do the following immediately. Disconnect the infected computer from the internet until the computer can be cleaned. From a clean computer, change your online passwords-- for email, for banks, eBay, forums etc.... Do not change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.

I edit your post to remove your ['quote] tags, to make it easier for me to read, hope you don't mind.

Troj/Qhosts-1 is a Trojan that changes the Windows primary DNS server setting so that all infected machines use the same host for the DNS queries. If the number of infected computers is high, it may effectively launch a denial of service attack on the DNS server. Troj/Qhosts-1 also "hijacks" Internet Explorer browser usage so that web requests are redirected to the server chosen by the Trojan writer. The Trojan is installed and run if a user visits a web page that exploits a vulnerability in Internet Explorer. A VB script embedded in the web page is run automatically when the page is viewed using Internet Explorer.

So, that's the first thing, I recommend you change your passwords.
Here are two useful links, in case you wish to read more on the infection you have:
http://www.sophos.com/security/analyses/trojqhosts1.html
http://www.symantec.com/security_response/...-100116-5901-99

Ok, now onto the removal, please follow these instructions exactly as posted, it's important. Also it is a good idea to print off these instructions. There is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. It is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and that you don't miss out any steps.

Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{250469A0-D2DA-4F70-AFC5-B5D012E5E0AA}: NameServer = 85.255.114.91,85.255.112.102
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{8224B2D4-ECA1-482B-98C5-1164BAB32086}: NameServer = 85.255.114.91,85.255.112.102

O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: NameServer = 85.255.114.91 85.255.112.102
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\..\{250469A0-D2DA-4F70-AFC5-B5D012E5E0AA}: NameServer = 85.255.114.91,85.255.112.102
O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: NameServer = 85.255.114.91 85.255.112.102
O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\..\{250469A0-D2DA-4F70-AFC5-B5D012E5E0AA}: NameServer = 85.255.114.91,85.255.112.102
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: NameServer = 85.255.114.91 85.255.112.102

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Go to Start -> Control Panel, and choose Network Connections.
Right click on your default connection, usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using Dial-up, and left click on properties.
Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio button that says Obtain DNS servers automatically.
Click OK twice, and restart your computer.

Go to Start > Run and type in cmd Click OK.
This will open a commad prompt.
Type or copy and paste the following line in the command window:
ipconfig /flushdns
Hit Enter
Exit the command window

Please download FixWareout from here:
http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts. If your firewall gives an alert, (because this tool will download an additional file from the internet), please don't let your firewall block it, but allow it instead.
Then you will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.
Once the desktop loads please post the text that will open (report.txt) and a new Hijackthis log

David

Also, is it possible for the trojan to have read passwords/credit card numbers entered into secure websites? I've recently used a credit card on this computer for purchases and am now a bit worried.

Hi there Ryuko.

Thanks for the logs, you are looking in good shape. I think it's important for me to at least warn you about the possibility of hacking when a system has been infected with a rootkit. Normally nothing will ever happen, but there is always an outside chance with a rootkit. This rootkit is what I would call "main stream", it's fairly common and it's easy to remove. The infection targets DNS, redirecting your computer to dodgy links and search pages, and normally, as the infection has grown, it doesn't steal passwords anymore, so I would be confident that you are safe. Mostly these sort of things are related to key-loggers, which can record your keystrokes for passwords etc, but in this case I'm quite sure it is impossible; I would say that there is little chance of you getting hacked. I still feel it is important that I let you know in my opening post the sort of infections we are dealing with.

The infection has been successfully removed. Malware like this normally never comes alone and there are probably infected files left on your computer. I want you to clean your cache and cookies from your internet explorer.
There are a few infected files which need to be removed from your system.

° Close all instances of Internet Explorer .
° Go to your control panel and open "Internet Options".
° Click on the "General" tab.
° Click the "Delete Cookies" button, then the "Delete Files" button.
° When prompted, place a tick in the "Delete all offline content" box and click OK.

Also, please clean other Temporary files and Empty the Recycle Bin

° Go to start and click on the "run" button.
° Type the following in the fox --> cleanmgr and click ok.
° Let it scan your system for files to remove.
° Make sure only Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are checked.
° Press OK to remove them.

Please perform this online scan: Kaspersky Webscan
Read the Requirements and Privacy statement, then select "Accept"
A dialogue box will appearing asking "Do you want to install this software?" Name: kavwebscan_unicode.cab
Select "Install" to download the ActiveX controls that allows ActiveScan to run.

When the download is complete it will say ready, click "Next"
Select a target to scan: Click on "My Computer"
When the scan is complete choose to save the results as "Save as Text"
Post the Kaspersky scan results in your next reply, along with a new Hijackthis log.

System's running great, now I don't get random "Page cannot be found" advertisements when trying to go to websites. =)
Thanks a lot for the explanations, detailed instructions, and everything else. Couldn't have gotten rid of this annoying thing without your help! :thumbsup:

Glad I could help! :thumbsup:
The latest log is looking clean!
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will be reduced dramatically.

Use an Anti Virus 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 on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
* I would recommend Grisoft's AVG or AVAST.
* These are the more secure and better ones.

Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus 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 susceptible to being hacked and taken over.
* Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
* For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
* I would recommend ZoneAlarm as a firewall as it's easy to use.

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.

Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (all free), and the updating of them regularly

Install Spybot© - Search and Destroy- Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
* This will provide real-time 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 anti virus software.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Lavasofts© Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware.
* You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Javacools© SpywareBlaster -
* SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer and Firefox settings and that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
* A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Computer Safety on line - Anti-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.

If you have any addition questions just ask...
David
