Hello, I have been infected with some Adware and have tried AVG, Avast, Kaspersky, Spybot - Search
and Destroy, Ad-AwareSE etc to try and erradicate it. Some can identified by the problem but they
offer no method to fix the issue. For example in Kaspersky only the "Skip" button is active.

c:\windows\system32\lfrmewrk.exe
c:\windows\system32\hbcmd.dll
c:\windows\system32\bofang.dll

I've even booted in safemode to try and manually erase the files with KillBox.

I hope that someone is able to assist. I've attached the HijackThis Log:

Hello Nomis,

I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. :flowers:

You have some nasty chinese infections on this computer. :thumbsup:

******************

Download ATF (Atribune Temp File) CleanerŠ by Atribune DO NOT run it yet.

Download and install AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 (formerly Ewido)
This is a 30 day trial of the program

AVG Anti-Spyware is designed to be used to both scan for and remove malicious files and also to run in real-time alongside, but not replace, your existing anti-virus program to give an added layer of protection.
Both the Resident Shield and Automatic Updates will only be available for the thirty day trial period, after that AVG Anti-Spyware will revert to a stand-alone scanner which you can keep and manually update for free and use in a similar way to Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D etc.


1. After download, double click on the file to launch the install process.
2. Choose a language, click "OK" and then click "Next".
3. Read the "License Agreement" and click "I Agree".
4. Accept the default installation path: C:\Program Files\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and click "Next", then click "Install".
5. After setup completes, click "Finish" to start the program automatically or launch ewido by double-clicking its icon on your desktop or in the system tray.
6. The main "Status" menu will appear. You can select "Change state" to inactivate 'Resident Sheild' and 'Automatic Updates'. If you choose to do this, then right click on ewdio in the system tray and uncheck "Start with Windows".
7. Select the "Update" button and click "Start update". If you are having problems with the updater, manually update with the Ewido Full database installer from here.
8. Exit AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 when done - DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "SAFE MODE" using the F8 method so Windows will start with minimal drivers and running processes.
To do this restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup [but before the Windows icon appears] press the F8 key repeatedly.
A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

1.) Double-click the small BLUE Garbage Can ATF-Cleaner.exe file to run the program.
2.) At the top, under Main choose: Select All
3.) Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use the Firefox browser:
1.) At the top, click Firefox and choose: Select All
2.) Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.

If you use the Opera browser:
1.) At the top, click Opera and choose: Select All
2.) Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.


Scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 as follows:

1. Launch AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5, click on the "Scanner" button and choose the "Settings" tab.

Under "How to act?", click on "Recommended actions" and choose "Quarantine" to set default action for detected malware.

Under "How to Scan?" check all (default).

Under "Possibly unwanted software" check all (default).

Under "What to Scan?" make sure "Scan every file" is selected (default).

Under "Reports" select "Automatically generate report after every scan" and UNcheck "Only if threats were found".

2. Click the "Scan" tab to return to scanning options.
3. Click "Complete System Scan" to start.

4. IMPORTANT : Don't click on the "Save Scan Report" button before you did hit the "Apply all Actions" button.

Make sure that Set all elements to: shows Quarantine
(1)
, if not click on the link and choose Quarantine from the popup menu.
(2) At the bottom of the window click on the Apply all Actions button.
(3) When done, click the Save Scan Report button.
(4) Click the Save Report as button.
Click on the most recent scan you just performed and select "Save report as" - the default file name will be in date/time format as follows: Report-Scan-20060620-142816.txt.
Save to your desktop.
A copy of each report will also be saved in C:\Program Files\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Reports\
Right-click the AVG Anti-Spyware Tray Icon and select Exit. Confirm by clicking Yes.

Reboot to Normal Mode.


Do you know what this is? Did you install it?

C:\Program Files\TELUS_eCare_Lite\eCareTrayApp.exe



1. Download this file - combofix.exe
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post the ComboFix log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
Disable script blocking if you have Norton Antivirus installed so it will not interfere with the fix.

To disable Norton AntiVirus Script Blocking
Start Norton AntiVirus. If Norton AntiVirus is installed as part of Norton SystemWorks or Norton Internet Security, then start that program.
Click Options. If you see a menu, click Norton AntiVirus.
In the left pane, click Script Blocking.
In the right pane, uncheck Enable Script Blocking (recommended).
Click OK

Trojan Hunter has been reported to detect combofix as Worm.Qiv.100.



When done, submit the ComboFix log, the [b]AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
log and a fresh Hijackthis log.

Hi SifuMike,

Thanks for helping. I really appreciate the expertise!

I have done a few things since I posted the HiJackThis log which appears to help.

I have created a BartPE disk and booted using that and then deleted the 3 files I know
was infected (lfrmework.exe, bofang.dll, hbcmd.dll in the system32 directory).

Should I continue with your instructions or post a new HJT log?

BTW. The eTelus thing is something that was installed when I changed my ISP to Telus.


Best Regards,
Nomis

Hi Nomis

Just to make sure you are clean, so do everything in my post and then post the logs.
Those chinese infections are very nasty.

Hi SifuMike,

I'm having problems with the Combofix.exe, it complains that my OS is the
wrong type although I'm running XP home edition.

Any suggestions?

I've run the ATF cleaner and the AVG Anti-Spyware.

Thanks,
Nomis

The program exits although it looks like it tries to extract a directory to the desktop
and a start.bat file.

I am thinking it may have been updated.
Delete the version you have on your computer and download a fresh ComboFix version (see my previous link). Then run it tell me what happens.

failed to find windows XP via find.exe something like:

find.exe: Window XP: No such file or directory

Lets try running it a different way.

Make sure you have combofix.exe saved to your desktop.

Also save the below command in Notepad as a text file so that you can copy/paste in safe mode.

"%userprofile%\desktop\combofix.exe"

Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key just before Windows starts to load.

go to start --> run and copy/paste in the following:

"%userprofile%\desktop\combofix.exe"

When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
Save it and post that log in your next reply.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall


In your next post, please include
  • new hijackthis log
  • combofix log
