Hi everyone,
Due to a system crasch(not because of this problem) and a complete operating system reinstall, I have been reinstalling all or most of all my disked applications. As the days have gone by I have been remembering some, hopefully all, the applications I have downloaded from the Web over the years. Well, I was downloading what I thought was a Winmx 2.6 setup. NOT! I ended up downloading Netwebsearch. Knowing that I had not installed Winmx, I deleted it from my ADD/Remove Programs as well as anything in the File Find under the name it was hidden in(winmx....). After doing this, I noticed I was getting a blank window who's name is netwebsearch. Well I was able to set my pop-up blocker to handle it's constant intrusion. I also noticed at times I was not able to close or open IE without using Control/Alt./DEl first. When I did this there was 2-3 IE's open at one time. I believe I've been hijacked! This is a first for me. I'd like to get my hands on this person. Anyway, I ran Spybot, Ad-aware, Norton Virus Scan, Micro Trend's House Call(from their website. There were a few things but everytime I opened IE it would still have a flash of this netwebsearch window before my pop-up blocker would close the window. My pop-up blocker which came with HISTORY KILL2003 has now been disabled. Probably due to netwebsearch. I'm going to have to reinstall History Kill after I can hopefully remove netwebsearch. It also wouldn't let me seasrch for any info on how to remove this piece of s--t!

After what happened with my hard drive crash a week ago, I'm pretty mad.
Please, Please help!
I need some help figuring out what to do.

I would u ninstall SPykiller. I will tell you about some programs I think are better later on after your cleaned.


Can you please zip and email the following files to grinler@yahoo.com:

C:\WINDOWS\NGSW31.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\NGPW34.DLL

When you email me, please include a link to this topic. In your reply let us know if you sent the files.

Thanks


Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

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 click the Fix button:

O2 - BHO: ngsw31.clsIS - {E9147A0A-A866-4214-B47C-DA821891240F} - C:\WINDOWS\NGSW31.DLL
O2 - BHO: ngpw34.clsIS - {2D7CB618-CC1C-4126-A7E3-F5B12D3BCF71} - C:\WINDOWS\NGPW34.DLL
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpyKiller] C:\Program Files\SpyKiller\spykiller.exe /startup

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

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

C:\WINDOWS\NGSW31.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\NGPW34.DLL

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.

Grinler,
Thank you for your information. I have sent the e-mail with the files you requested.
However, I did not find Spykiller in My Add/Delete Programs or File Find. I had installed it and removed it yesterday. I thought. Please let me know if I need to do something else to see it and remove it.
Thanks,
Codajohn

In the future when you reply to a topic, please reply to the existing topic and do not create a new one.

Log looks clean...great job!

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.

    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

  • 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

  • Commercial Spyware Removal/Protection Programs - If you feel more comfortable installing a commercial Spyware removal program then we recommend WebRoot's Spysweeper or Lavasoft's Ad-Aware Professional. There are many commercial products on the market, but unfortunately most are misleading and substandard. Both of the products we recommend here are proven to be excellent products and a worthy addition to the arsenal of software protecting your computer.

    Spysweeper Product Information
    Ad-Aware Pro Production Information


  • 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 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.
