hello,
i'm not very computer savy so a friend suggested i ask for help here.
when i run housecall it tells me that i have ADWARE_COMMANDDESKTOP and tells me that it can't fix it.
also spybot tells me that i have two registry problems that it cannot fix. (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\cmdService & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\cmdService)
i'm not sure if these things are related or indicative of another problem. i would appreciate any help. thanks in advance. here's my hijack this log:

Hi,

You're welcome.

when i looked for C:\WINDOWS\csvas.exe it was not there


That's fine.

===============================

C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\

I don't know if you use these games but I think it's important to note that often these kinds of programs are installed with other unwanted software, namely spyware or adware. If you did not install this program yourself, or you do not use it any more, I would definitely recommend that you uninstall it from your computer, even if it is simply a precautionary measure. You might like to know that Partypoker.com is in Eric Howes' IE-SPYAD block List.

If you do use the software, and wish to continue doing so, please ignore this. If you do decide to go ahead and remove the poker software, you should be able uninstall it via add/remove programs in the control panel.

Here are links to some poker sites regarded as safe for your reference.

* http://www.pokerstars.net/ - This is a free to use/play site.
* http://www.pokerstars.com - This is the paid for version.

=============================================

Let's do some house cleaning to make sure that nothing is left hiding around.

Please download Ccleaner and save it to your desktop.
Tutorial for CCleaner
During the installation be sure to UN-check the box for "Ccleaner Yahoo Toolbar" unless you want it. Do not scan with it yet.

=============================================

Download AVG Anti Spyware

Use the link at the bottom of the page under "AVG Anti-Spyware Free for Windows"

Posted Image
  • Install AVG Anti Spyware
  • Double-click the icon on Desktop to launch AVG
  • On the top of the main screen click Shield
  • Click the word active to change it to inactive
  • On the top of the main screen click Update.
  • Then click on Start Update. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  • Under "Reports"
  • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
  • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
When you have finished updating, EXIT AVG Anti Spyware. Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.

========================================

Reboot your computer in Safe Mode using the F8 method below.
a. If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power.
b. Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
c. Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
d. Ensure that the Safe Mode option is selected.
e. Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.

=======================================

From Safe Mode run Ccleaner
  • Click on Options,
  • Select Advanced
  • Now UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
  • Make sure the Cleaner block on the left is selected.
  • Do not use the "Issues" block . It's meant for professionals.
  • Choose the Windows tab.
  • Check everything EXCEPT Advanced part of the Menu.
  • Click on "Analyze". This process could take a while.
  • If you don't want to loose your login passwords to certain sites, click on Options
  • Select cookies and move the ones you want to keep to the "cookies to keep" section, by highlighting and using the arrows in the middle.
  • Choose Run Cleaner.
When CCleaner shows how much has been removed, cleaning is finished. Click Exit.
If you have more than one users, run Ccleaner for every user

========================================

IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while AVG Anti-Spyware is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess:
  • Launch AVG Anti-Spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
  • AVG Anti-Spyware will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, **Please ensure it is set to Quarantine then select "Apply all actions"
  • Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
  • Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
  • Close AVG Anti-Spyware.
=========================================

Reboot in Normal Mode.

Hi,

It appears that you've downloaded a cracked version of Nero via eMule, which is a p2p file sharing program. That was probably the source of your problem. I think the nature of P2P filesharing is so that even if one is using a "clean" program, many of the files downloaded from non-documented sources have the potential of being infected. So, regardless of whether one is using a "clean" program, one may still be prone to infection by malware because more than half of all files available for download from peer-to-peer networks have been deliberately infected with some form of malware. I recommend that you remove eMule and any other p2p file sharing program from your system via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

==============================

Open AVG Anti Spyware.
Under 'Status',click on "change status" to make it 'inactive'. Once your log is clean you can re-enable it.

==============================

Scan with HijackThis and put a checkmark against the following entries:

O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe (file missing)
09 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyPoker\PartyPoker.exe (file missing)


Close all browsers including this one and click on "fix checked".

===============================

Please download Dr.Web CureIt to the desktop.

Disconnect this PC from the internet and close all open programs.

It's crucial that you follow this next step exactly as instructed: Do not multi-task while the scan is running...only DrWeb can be active
  • Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This 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. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, mark the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
  • Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found: Posted Image
  • If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:
    Posted Image
    This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if we need samples)
  • After selecting, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit.
  • Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web you saved previously, along with a new HijackThis log in your next reply.

Hi,

i removed all p2p programs before we started any of this

.

You can go ahead and delete this folder since you've already uninstalled eMule. Right click on Start, click on Explore to bring up Windows Explorer, and navigate to the folder and delete it.:

C:\Program Files\eMule

Make sure that AVG Anti Spyware's shield is still inactive. Then, scan with HijackThis and put a checkmark against:

O16 - DPF: {2B96D5CC-C5B5-49A5-A69D-CC0A30F9028C} (MiniBugTransporterX Class) - http://download.weatherbug.com/minibug/tri...Transporter.cab?

Close all browsers and click on "fix checked".

================================

Reboot for the changes to take place. It should not be there anymore. How is the computer running now?

Hi,

the computer seems to be running very well. thank a bunch for all of your help.

You're welcome. Glad to hear that.

Please remove/delete all the tools I asked you to download, except AVG Anti Spyware and Ccleaner. Use Add/Remove Programs to remove if listed there otherwise just delete them and empty recycle bin.

Since AVG Anti Spyware is a trial version, the realtime guard and automatic update will stop functioning after the trial period. That is why we are not installing the guard so it will not interfere with the cleanup or the malware removal process. You can use AVG-AS as an on-demand scanner (recommended) but you will have to manually update the definition file each time you scan.

Ccleaner is also a useful tool to keep for cleaning your cookies and temp files on a regular basis.

Re-enable all the realtime scanners I may have asked you to disable.

Remember to hide your system files again.

Start>My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>View
Under the Hidden files and Folders heading uncheck Show hidden files and folders.
check the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
check the Hide file extensions for known file types.
Click OK.
=============================
Create a new System Restore point to prevent reinfection from old restore points.

Go to Start>Run and type sysdm.cpl. Press Enter
  • Select the System Restore Tab
  • Place a check in "Turn off System Restore on all drives"
  • Click Apply
  • next, uncheck the same checkbox.
  • Click Apply
  • Click OK
You can also find instructions on how to disable and re enable system restore here:
Windows XP System Restore Guide

A colleague of ours has excellent information and tips on the prevention of malware here and more on improving speed/system performance after malware removal here, if you would like to read .

Happy Surfing! :thumbsup:
