First off I'll let you know I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.

Ok, so I see that I have a folder WinAntiVirus Pro 2007 with various files in it. I don't have any pop-ups, and I've scanned with a trial of McAfee Security Center, I've scanned with Windows Defender and AVG, and nothing has been found. I did have some kind of malware because I got Spydawn, which Mcafee found, and AVG found some trojan horse. Windows Defender also found something though I can't remember what. Anyway, I'm worried that I'm still in danger with this thing. I don't see any .exe in there so maybe I am mostly safe? I really don't know. :thumbsup: The computer had a problem earlier when it froze up, and I had to force my computer to restart, which happened right after I upgraded to the new firefox. Other than that, I think everything is ok. Can someone help me out?

I think the fix for the smitfraud variants that you have will not work in Vista. I have included a link with more info on your infections. You should post a Hijack This Log by following the instructions in the link below. Post the log in the Hijack This Forum--Not here.

Welcome to BC WarthogWarthog

You have a mix of infections and my suggestion would be to post a HiJackThis log. We may solve one infection but sill the other one resides. You could try this :


1) Go to Add/remove programs and remove winantiviruspro2007

2)Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users

* Double-click SUPERAntiSpyware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
* An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
* If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Udates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
* When done, select "Scan for Harmful Software".
* There are three scanning options. Choose "Perform Complete Scan" and click "Next".
* When done, a Scan Summary will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
* Make sure they all have a checkmark next to them and click "Next".
* A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
* Click Preferences and then click the statistics/logs tab.
* Click the dated log and press View log. A text file will appear so you can see the results.
* Select close to exit the program.
* Scan in SAFE MODE

After that, download DrWeb-CureIt & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in SAFE MODE using the F8 method.

Scan with DrWeb-CureIt as follows:

* Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program. An "Express Scan of your PC" notice will appear.
* Under "Start the Express Scan Now", Click "OK" to start. This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
* Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
* Choose the "Scan tab" and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis"
* Back at the main window, click "Select drives" (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen)
* Then click the "Start/Stop Scanning" button (green arrow on the right) and the scan will start.
* When done, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
* Click "Yes to all" if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
* When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found. If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select "Move incurable".
(This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
* Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
* Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
* Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
* Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.

1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

If this did not fix things :


please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

Ad-Aware found 2 regkeys but does not remove them:

ArchiveData(auto-quarantine- 2007-04-01 21-16-36.bckp)
Referencefile : SE1R163 26.03.2007
======================================================

WIN32.TROJANDOWNLOADER.ZLOB

obj[0]=Regkey : clsid\{a6acae64-f798-4930-ad86-bd3fb32038db}
obj[1]=Regkey : software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\browser helper objects\{a6acae64-f798-4930-ad86-bd3fb32038db}

What do I need to do about this?
Thanks for the help. I have been pretty busy, but I'll eventually have this taken care of.

Super Antispyware may remove the trojan. It says it can and I have read on this and other forums that it did just that from users who were infected.
It is free for home users and is a great program to keep around. Don't forget to run it in safe mode.

I would do the HJT log.
