Posted 04 January 2005 - 06:45 AM

I am running IE6 on a Windows 2000. I have updated Windows and tried using Spybot S&D to no avial.

I am having several problems.

1. I keep getting pop-ups in IE
2. I have tried intalling Google Toolbar but could not...it disapears as soon as I close the browser window.
3. I keep getting a vertical window labeled "Search Bar" on the first line and "Related Searches" on the second line. Looks supicious..
3. I get the feeling that my searches form the Google main page are being diverted through some other search engine. I say this because I was trying to locate the webiste for Spybot S&D and tried searching in the main page of Google, but none of the results were for Spybot. Then I cliked on "advanced search" and dit the same search and the first entry/result was for Spybot's Home Page.

I ran HijackThis and am posting the results below. Would greatly apprecaite any assistance given.

Many thanks in advance.

Please download and install CWShredder.
http://cwshredder.net/bin/CWSInstall.exe


Download Ad-aware SE from: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Exit Adaware.



Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

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

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode



Open CWShredder and click "Fix".



Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\EliteToolBar version 59.dll
C:\EliteSideBar version 8.dll
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\vssddfq.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\tasmgr.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\secure.exe
C:\WINNT\mmups.exe
C:\WINNT\suploads.exe
C:\winnt\system32\kalvyng32.exe
ffsqsd.exe
dSAFsqs.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Tina\Application Data\smmo.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\msedpb.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\mshfan.dll



Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

Click on the Gear icon (second from the left) to access the preferences/settings window

1. In the General window make sure the following are selected:

* Automatically save log-file
* Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
* Safe Mode (always request confirmation)

2. Click on the Scanning button on the left and select :

* Scan Within Archives
* Scan Active Processes
* Scan Registry
* Deep Scan Registry
* Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
* Scan my Hosts file
* Under Click here to select drives + folders, choose:
* All of your hard drives

Click on the Advanced button on the left and select:

* Include additional process information
* Include additional file information
* Include environment information

Click the Tweak button and select:

* Under the Scanning Engine:
o Unload recognized processes & modules during scan
o Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
* Under the Cleaning Engine:
o Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot

Click on Proceed to save the settings.

Click Start and on the next screen choose Activate in-depth Scan at the bottom of the page and then choose:

* Use Custom Scanning Options

Click Next and Ad-aware will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected.

Save the log file when it asks and then click Finish

When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).



Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode.



Launch Notepad, and copy/paste the box below into a new text file. Save it as FindFile.bat and save it on your Desktop.

dir C:\WINDOWS\system32\?hkdsk.exe /a h > files.txt
notepad files.txt




Locate FindFile.bat on your Desktop and double-click on it. It will open Notepad with some text in it. Please post the text here.



Please post a new hijackthis log.

Dear Buckeye Sam;

I REALLY do appreciate your effort .... I know it must have taken some time to research my problems ... AdAware came up with 311 problems!

Anyways, I did as you instructed, but did not get any text in the txt file. Instead, I got a message (I think it was in a DOS window) as follows:


"C:\Documents and Settings\Tina\Desktop>dir C:\WINDOWS\system32\?hkdsk.exe /a h
1>files.txt
The system cannot find the file specified.

C:\Documents and Settings\Tina\Desktop>notepad files.txt"

Here is a copy of the new log file from HijackThis

Thanks

Tony

Still a few sneaky little devils in your log.

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

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

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [o23U36T] iniynth.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Zaa] C:\WINNT\system32\??chost.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Z1s8RWf7V] indpxl32.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Awoa] C:\Documents and Settings\Tina\Application Data\mroh.exe

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

iniynth.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\indpxl32.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Tina\Application Data\mroh.exe

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode.


Please run these two online scans.
Make sure they are set to clean automatically:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm

If there are files that can not be removed by the scans please include that information in your next post.


Please post a new hijackthis log so we can see what's left.

OK Buckeye Sam. I did as you instructed. Trend Micro Housecall found no viruses. Pand found three (3) and fixed them.

I only found one of the files I was supposed to delete in safe mode. It was
C:\Documents and Settings\Tina\Application Data\mroh.exe

I deleted this file.

Here is a copy of the latest HJT log.

Thanks Again.

Your log is clean!!

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.

Glad I was able to help. :thumbsup:

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!
