Hi

Copy the contents of the Quote Box below to Notepad.
Click File menu -> Save and name the file as unhide.reg
Change the Save as Type to All Files
Save this file on the desktop.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"SearchSystemDirs"=dword:00000001
"SearchHidden"=dword:00000001
"IncludeSubFolders"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"Hidden"=dword:00000001
"ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001


Double-click on the unhide.reg file you saved on your desktop, and when it prompts to merge say Yes.


You may want to print out these directions as the Internet will not be available. Please continue with the next step if you run into a problem with the current one. Just be sure to let us know what the problem was when you reply.

This is very important ! Internet Explorer should remain closed during the cleanup. If you open Internet Explorer the fix will fail. (Steps 1 - 8)

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files:
A. On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
B. Click the View tab.
C. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.
D. Uncheck Hide extensions for known filetypes and Hide protected operating system files.
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please download About:Buster from here: About:Buster Download. Once it is downloaded extract it to
c:\aboutbuster. We will use that program later in this process. Don't use it yet.

Download Ad-aware SE: here
Install it. When you get the last screen, with the "Finish" button and 3 options, uncheck those three items.
Open AdAware and click the "Check for updates now" link. Close AdAware. Don't use it yet.

Download the cws-hsa.reg file to your desktop. We will use it later.

Step 1:

Go to Start -> Run and type Services.msc, then press the OK button. Look for a service called Workstation NetLogon Service. Double click on that service and press the Stop button, and then set the Startup type to Disabled. Press OK, and close all the windows.

Step 2:

Press control-alt-delete to get into the task manager and end the follow processes if they exist:

Sld.exe
lWXfGNKZJ.exe


This is very important ! Internet Explorer should remain closed during the cleanup. If you open Internet Explorer the fix will fail. (Steps 1 - 8)

Step 3:
Run HijackThis!, press "Scan" and tick the boxes next to all these, close all other windows and browsers, then press "Fix Checked" button.

Step 4:
Reboot your computer into Safe Mode.

I now need you to delete the following files:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\morwm.dll <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\appaj32.dll <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\sdkbc32.exe <-- this file
C:\windows\system32\lWXfGNKZJ.exe <-- this file
c:\windows\system32\Sld.exe <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\tibs3.exe <-- this file
C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\Application Data\wtta.exe <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\maxspeed.exe <-- this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit.exe <-- this file, NOTE: You will find two files with the same name in the C:\WINNT\System32\ folder: userinit.exe. One is bad and one is legitimate. You must delete only the bad file.
Right click on each file and select Properties.
In the General tab the legitimate file has this Description: Userinit Logon Application, Size = 24,0 KB Do not delete this file, it is a Microsoft file.

The bad file has this size = 389,120 bytes, and the description is userinit.exe. The icon is blue colored with three letters: FMC. The bad file will not appear alphabetically.


If you get an error when deleting a file, right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. if it is, uncheck it and try again.

Step 5:

Double-click on the cws-hsa.reg file you saved earlier on your desktop, and when it prompts to merge say Yes, and this will clear some registry entries left behind by the process.

Step 6:

This is the step where we will use About:Buster that you had downloaded previously.

Navigate to the c:\aboutbuster directory and double-click on aboutbuster.exe When the tool is open press the OK button, then the Start button, then the OK button, and then finally the Yes button. It will start scanning your computer for files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so.

When it completed move on to step 7.

Step 7:

Run AdAware, press the Start button, uncheck Scan for negligible risk entries, select Perform full system scan and press Next. Let AdAware remove anything it finds.

Step 8:

Clean out temporary and Temporary Internet Files. Go to Start -> Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

Step 9:
Reboot your computer back to normal mode so that we can restore files that were deleted by this infection:
  • This infection deletes the windows file, shell.dll.
    If you are using XP,2000, or NT please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system32
    %windir%\system
  • If you are using Windows 98*Grinler please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll98.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system
  • Download the Hoster from here. Press Restore Original Hosts and press OK. Exit Program. This will restore the original deleted Hosts file.
  • If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file. Go here: SDHelper.zip and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy). Then click Start -> Run -> type regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SDHelper.dll and press the OK button
Step 10:

Please check Internet Explorer settings:
Open Internet Explorer - > Tools -> Internet Options ... -> click the Security tab -> click Internet icon -> press the Custom Level ,,, button.
Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins tick:
- Download signed ActiveX controls - Prompt
- Download unsigned ActiveX controls Disable
- Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe Disable
- Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins Enabled
- Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting Prompt
