Posted 11 January 2005 - 03:08 PM

I have tried spybot s&d, adaware, cwshredder, and a few others. Adaware is the only one that recognizes it but it cannot get it removed. Adaware finds it in the process ??chost.exe.

It doesn't seem to hurt me any at least to the point I haven't noticed a lot of popups or anything like that. I'm trying to get a clean version of my pc so I can make a new Ghost Image in case of future crashes/problems. This pc is used as a webserver so you'll notice IIS running. Also it is a XP Media Center pc so you'll see the ehXXXX programs in the services. Those are for recording tv shows and similiar things. Here's my HJT log.

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\??chost.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.

Sorry about that, my mistake. Good recognition on your part. :thumbsup:

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.

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: Clear Search - {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000240} - (no file)
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Cbdrnnz] C:\WINNT\System32\??chost.exe

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

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

C:\WINNT\System32\??chost.exe <- you want the file that is 372kb in size and created on 9/8/2004.

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

Well that was painless. I followed the instructions and it appears to be gone. :thumbsup:

Here's the log. Hopefully it looks clean to you!

Thanks,

Your log looks good but for just a few lines.

Have hijackthis fix these lines.

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {86790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB} - (no file)
O9 - Extra button: EasySearchBar - {A26ABCF0-1C8F-46e7-A67C-0489DC21B9CC} - C:\WINNT\system32\shdocvw.dll
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: EasySearchBar - {A26ABCF0-1C8F-46e7-A67C-0489DC21B9CC} - C:\WINNT\system32\shdocvw.dll

These two lines can be fixed unless you implemented this yourself.

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

And this line just looks fishy to me. If you don't know what this site is then you can fix this line too.

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://applications.majerus.net


Reboot and post one last hijackthis log.

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.

Thanks Buckeye Sam! :thumbsup:

I already had a lot of those things met since I originally started battling the spyware a couple months ago. I changed my IE settings and got the Spyware Blaster program. For firewall I'm using the Windows Firewall that came out with XP SP2. If that isn't sufficient I would be open to trying a different one.

Thanks again!

Jesse

If you connect to the Internet through a dial up ISP then you should be ok most of the time with XP's firewall. But if you connect through cable or DSL I'd recommend a stronger firewall like Kerio or Zone Alarm.

Thanks I'll look at zone alarm. This pc runs iis for family to reach our web site. So it could be more prone to attacks.
