I get popups that open up automtically, no matter what im doing....it just opens up internet explorer and lots of popups, every few minutes....

Ill start by telling you what I have done....first I erased all my temp files, temp internet files, cookies, and recycle bin. Then ran AVG AV software in safe mode, which found several things including 3 trojans named clicker.*** with different extensions...I quarentined them, and ran AVG AS, which after 3+ hours, came back with like 20 infections, including a rootkit, and several differently named trojans... Booted back out of safe mode, and shortly thereafter started getting popups again. Then I decided to run HJT and get your guys expert opinion....so here ya go

Hello there and welcome to Bleeping Computer's security forum.
My name is David, I will be helping you with your log today.
It looks like AVG AS has done most of the work for us here..

It is a good idea to print off these instructions. There is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. It is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and that you don't miss out any steps.

Click on start, then control panel, and then double-click on add/remove programs.
From within add/remove program uninstall the following if they exist by double-clicking on the following entries:

Web Buying <--don't worry if it's not there.

Please set your system to show all files.
Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.

Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

O2 - BHO: ofb1 - {3E1500AC-87A5-416b-A211-82E848649DA9} - C:\PROGRA~1\Ofb11\Ofb11.dll (file missing)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {6880d9a7-dfd6-4c3e-bba1-b5b32da986e1} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\htretlg.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {70EE5B98-F077-4180-8FAB-6C1DA04EED79} - C:\Program Files\Common Files\homez.dll (file missing)
O2 - BHO: CFG32S - {7564B020-44E8-4c9b-A887-C6EC41AC67DA} - C:\WINDOWS\cfg32r.dll (file missing)
O2 - BHO: Scaggy Insert - {C68AE9C0-0909-4DDC-B661-C1AFB9F59898} - C:\WINDOWS\cfg32o.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sys039746485-39] C:\DOCUME~1\JASONW~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sys039746485-39.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WebBuying] C:\Program Files\Web Buying\v1.7.4\webbuying.exe
O4 - Startup: TA_Start.lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\dwdsregt.exe
O4 - Startup: Think-Adz.lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\owinlndt.exe

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Now reboot into Safe Mode.
This can be done tapping the F8 key as soon as you start your computer
You will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode.
Make sure you choose the option without networking support.

Using Windows Explorer, please locate the following files/folders, and delete them if still present:

C:\Program Files\Ofb11
C:\WINDOWS\system32\htretlg.dll
C:\Program Files\Web Buying
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dwdsregt.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\owinlndt.exe

I want you to clean your cache and cookies from your internet explorer.
There are a few infected files which need to be removed from your system.

° Close all instances of Internet Explorer .
° Go to your control panel and open "Internet Options".
° Click on the "General" tab.
° Click the "Delete Cookies" button, then the "Delete Files" button.
° When prompted, place a tick in the "Delete all offline content" box and click OK.

Also, please clean other Temporary files and Empty the Recycle Bin

° Go to start and click on the "run" button.
° Type the following in the fox --> cleanmgr and click ok.
° Let it scan your system for files to remove.
° Make sure only Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are checked.
° Press OK to remove them.

Reboot back to normal mode now.

Please download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe to launch the application.

Follow the prompts that will be displayed on the screen.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.
When finished, it should produce a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.

Good work...let's continue! :thumbsup:

It is a good idea to print off these instructions. There is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. It is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and that you don't miss out any steps.

Open hijackthis, click 'config' (bottom right) Choose the tab 'misc Tools' on top.
Choose 'delete a file on reboot'. In the field, copy and paste the filepath a few lines below.
Click open. Hijackthis will tell you that this file will be deleted on next reboot and if you want to reboot now.
When asked if you want to reboot now, say Yes:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.dll

Allow the PC to reboot, if it doesn't do it automatically, please reboot manually.

Then find and delete this folder:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\o05PrEz

Can you tell me anything about this HJT entry? I can't find any information on it, do you recongise it?

Hiya Mike! Let's continue..

It is a good idea to print off these instructions. There is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. It is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and that you don't miss out any steps.

Using Windows Explorer, please locate the following files/folders, and delete them if still present:

C:\QooBox

Also please find and delete the following files which appear to be on a different drive (S:)

S:\RH-LAPTOP Backup\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\windc\msiesh.dll
S:\RH-LAPTOP Backup\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\windc\submit2.exe
S:\RH-LAPTOP Backup\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\windc\windc32.dll

Also, it appears as though you have a collection of cracks on your desktop; some are infected so I would delete them all.

We need to purge your infected system restore points.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer, then click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab near the top of the window.
Check Turn off System Restore, click Apply, and then click OK.
More information on how to disable your system restore can be found here.

We want to create a new, clean restore point. Please first reboot your computer.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer, then click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab near the top of the window.
Uncheck "Turn off System Restore", click Apply, and then click OK.

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point - Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup".
Click Create, and after it has created the restore point, click "Close".
Further instructions on creating a restore point can be found here

Reboot a final time and let me know how the PC is running.
I see a clean Hijackthis log now! :thumbsup:

Glad I could help! :flowers:
The latest log is looking clean!
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will be reduced dramatically.

Use an Anti Virus 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 on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
* I would recommend Grisoft's AVG or AVAST.
* These are the more secure and better ones.

Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus 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 susceptible to being hacked and taken over.
* Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
* For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
* I would recommend ZoneAlarm as a firewall as it's easy to use.

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.

Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (all free), and the updating of them regularly

Install Spybot© - Search and Destroy- Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
* This will provide real-time 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 anti virus software.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Lavasofts© Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware.
* You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Javacools© SpywareBlaster -
* SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer and Firefox settings and that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
* A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Computer Safety on line - Anti-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.
:thumbsup: If you wish to learn how to use HijackThis to remove malware, you might like to join the Malware Removal Training Program!

If you have any addition questions just ask...
