See topic " Trying To Fix Imsmn.exe & Vundo Bugs" for more history & details

I’ve been trying diligently to follow your "Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log". I’ve cleaned with Ad-Aware, Spybot, Housecall, Panda, Bit Defender, and Stinger along with getting MS updates. Some minor issues with all but Stinger, but I think all ran well in the end. In the middle somewhere, I followed buddy215’s procedures to try to find and kill vundo (aka virtumundo, I guess.)

The instant I started getting bizarre pop up and browser symptoms I started shutting everything down as orderly as I could at first, then process by process which is when I noticed imsmn.exe hanging around and refusing to go away. A lot has gone on since this started so I don’t recall precisely what I did at first, but I found at least one instance in the system somewhere and probably started in safe mode, deleted it, then deleted the recycle bin. I haven't seen imsmn.exe in the process list since I first noticed its persistence, and I’ve obviously been using my browsers and the internet extensively in the last couple of days trying to get things cleaned up. No business work though… like everybody else, I’m sure, computer problems and particularly viruses, spyware and the like are business killers, and I want to get my system as squeaky clean as possible before I move forward.

As noted in one of the posts in my original topic, what looked like a symptom of vundo only showed up using Housecall; not before, nor since. So I may never have had it, since nothing showed up in any of the scans buddy215 suggested.

I just want to do the best job I can of cleaning my system; within reason.

Following is my HJT log. Thanks in advance for looking.

Hello Papanik,

Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the SmitfruadFix report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Hi Papanik,

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart anyway into normal Windows. A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a new HijackThis log.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Warning : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.

SifuMike,

Attached are SmitFraudFix and HJT logs

Please also note... ever since I rebooted after Safe Mode my computer continues to sound DING DONG... DONG DING as if I had unplugged and replugged a USB cable - every 15 seconds or so (as much as 30 and as little as 5) What's THAT all about. Windows Explorer us up ( I usually have it running) and I noticed that something keeps messing around with my Removable Disks (G:), (H:), (I:), and (J:), as they disappear and reappear more or less in sync with the DING DONG… DONG DING. Never done that before. What’s goin’ on???

Hi Papanik,

Please also note... ever since I rebooted after Safe Mode my computer continues to sound DING DONG... DONG DING as if I had unplugged and replugged a USB cable - every 15 seconds or so (as much as 30 and as little as 5) What's THAT all about. Windows Explorer us up ( I usually have it running) and I noticed that something keeps messing around with my Removable Disks (G:), (H:), (I:), and (J:), as they disappear and reappear more or less in sync with the DING DONG… DONG DING. Never done that before. What’s goin’ on???


I dont know, as that has never had that happen before. Let me know if it continues after we do these fixes.


You will need to disable spybot TeaTimer, as that will prevent hijackthis from changing the registry.

To disable Spybot S&D Teatimer:
Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode.
If it is not already set to do this Go to the Mode menu select "Advanced Mode"
On the left hand side, Click on Tools
Then click on the Resident Icon in the List
Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts.
Restart your computer.


Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best). Do not run it yet!

CCleaner Tutorial


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

Select the following with HijackThis.
With all windows (including this one!) closed (close browser/explorer windows), please select "fix."

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {36ADA89D-2440-4DC4-820A-3A05E8630935} - (no file)
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.trymedia.com (HKLM)



If you did not add these pages to your trusted pages, they should be fixed.
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.nwmls.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.rapmls.com




These are optional fixes. The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but we suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Reminder] \"C:\Windows\Creator\Remind_XP.exe\"
(Description: Subscription reminder to unlock unkimited use for SoftThinks CD Creator CD/DVD rewriting software, usually supplied with HP PC's as a pre-installed package. Unnecessary. Removing this will free up a small amount of system resources. )

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] \"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe\" -osboot
(Description: RealPlayer scheduler. Completely unnecessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
(Description: Microsoft Office Startup Assistant. This program loads some Microsoft Office components into memory, even if you're not currently using MS Office. Removing this unnecessary program will free up a considerable amount of system resources. )

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

*NOTE* CCleaner deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

Let's empty the temp files:

Run CCleaner.

CAUTION: Please do NOT use the Issues button. This is a built-in registry cleaner. If you don't know how to use it, you may cause irreparable damage to your system.

1. Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation.
IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build.


2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

3. Then select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:
• Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section except Cookies.
• Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section.
• Clean all entries in the "System" section.
• Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
• Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab:
• Clean all except cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
• Clean all in the Opera section if you use it.
• Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section.
• Clean any others that you choose.

4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
7. Click "exit" when done.

If it asks you to reboot at the end, click NO.

CCleaner should be run with the above settings for each User Account!

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

ever since I rebooted after Safe Mode my computer continues to sound DING DONG... DONG DING as if I had unplugged and replugged a USB cable - every 15 seconds or so (as much as 30 and as little as 5)


Are you sure those are Ding Dongs you are hearing and not Beeps?

If it is beeps, then the beeps coming from your computer have a purpose.

They are not random noise, but rather your computer's attempt to communicate a problem. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), software that controls your motherboard, as well as communications between hardware such as RAM and video cards, is doing its best to tell you what's wrong.

Should something go wrong during the boot process that prevents the computer from even sending data to the monitor or starting the computer, you need some way to identify the problem. When something goes wrong that causes the BIOS to be unable to start the computer properly, it uses specific patterns of beeps to give you clues to what the underlying problem is.

SifuMike,

First, in reply to your 2nd post: Nope, not bios beeps. I’m familiar with that process. As far as I understand it (and I may be quite incorrect or just over simplistic), The DONG DING (low tone to high tone) I’m trying to describe, is the response from the systems PnP elements recognizing, for example, a USB device being plugged in. The DING DONG (high tone to low tone) indicates the removal or loss of a PnP connection. Anyway, after a couple of reboots now, it seems to have gone away (or deeper undercover… :thumbsup:

Regarding the preceding post for terminating Spybot Resident, running HJT, CClean, etc. : not doing to well here. Stuck at your first step and unable to dislodge Spybot Resident in the manner you’ve recommended. I brought up Spybot, put it in Advanced mode, unchecked the Resident box and rebooted, But Resident did not go away.

As a side note: I also tried to attach a screenshot to this post but I could not get the attachment uploaded to Bleepingcomputer. I tried several different formats but I could not get it to go. And I couldn’t seem to find any guidelines, FAQs, or attachment limitations other than the 250K limit, which my attachment met. I just wanted to show you the Spybot window after reboot which showed the box I had unchecked was still unchecked and Resident still showing up in the Task Bar.

Anyway… what do you suggest next?

Just uninstall Spybot for now, then you can reload it (I assume you still have the Spybot installation program on your hard drive) after you are done using Hijackthis.
