Hi

I am having serious problems with my computer. It is running XP with Service Pack 2 recently installed. I have had a number of virus’s and spyware, but was able to deal with most of them with AVG7, Ad-Aware SE, Microsoft Antispyware and Spybot. The Firewall is also enabled.

Now, a few seconds after I boot up and windows starts I get a message that ‘Microsoft Antispyware has blocked C:/Windows/System32/swwhost.exe from being installed’. (I have tried unblocking this in Microsoft Antispyware but everytime I reboot it happens again).

Whenever I get onto the internet (with Internet explorer), everything is OK for a few minutes then I get a message from AVG7 to say that ‘a virus has been detected giving the location as C:/Windows/System32/Setup.exe’. It refuses to be healed or to be placed in the vault. Then each page I try to access on the internet cannot be displayed. A minute or so after this I get the message that ‘Microsoft Antispyware has blocked C: Windows/System32/myson.bat’

As you can imagine, it was nearly impossible for me to get to the page where I can download HighJackThis. I eventually managed to download it. This is my HighJackThis Log:

Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

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 click the Fix button:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinLogin] win32x.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Messenger Service] msnmsg32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Registry Server] spoolsvc.exe

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

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

c:\windows\system32\win32x.exe
c:\windows\system32\msnmsg32.exe
c:\windows\system32\spoolsvc.exe
c:\windows\system32\swwhost.exe
c:\windows\system32\msams.exe
D:\IntraLaunch.CAB

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

A post script to this!

I have just run Spybot-SD and it shows the following:

DuFuCA.InternetOptimizer
Elitum.Elitebar
N-Case

But I can't delete them with Spybot.

DSOExploit also shows up each time I run spybot even though I delete it everytime.

I have checked to make sure my virus checker and spyware checkers are up to date.

Log looks clean...great job!

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.

    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

  • 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

  • Commercial Spyware Removal/Protection Programs - If you feel more comfortable installing a commercial Spyware removal program then we recommend WebRoot's Spysweeper or Lavasoft's Ad-Aware Professional. There are many commercial products on the market, but unfortunately most are misleading and substandard. Both of the products we recommend here are proven to be excellent products and a worthy addition to the arsenal of software protecting your computer.

    Spysweeper Product Information
    Ad-Aware Pro Production Information


  • 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 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.

Glad I was able to help.

:thumbsup: Thanks Grinler (or is it Lawrence?)

I will take your advise.

If you didn't live too far away I would buy you a beer.
Trouble is, there is a small obstacle called the Atlantic Ocean in the way.

......I'll donate instead!

My son is also having a few problems with his computer. I will download HiJackThis and I would be grateful if you could have a look at his Logfile to see if there are any problems.

Thanks

Roy
