Hi there

I am a new user and hope you can help.
Experiencing the same problems as several of your other users after running Adaware and Spybot but don't have exactly the same HT log as anyone else that I can see. Basically I cannot reclaim my homepage and wondered if this spyware is also causing me a problem I have with shutting down my PC.

Greatful for any help. HT log below:-

Hi

You are running HijackThis from your Desktop. You will need to move hijackthis.exe to a permanent folder, such as c:\hjt . This has to be done as HijackThis creates backups when you fix items. You do not want them accidentally deleted or spread all over your Desktop.

First create a new folder:
A. Click My Computer icon on your desktop
B. Click C: drive
C. Click the File menu --> New --> Folder, a folder "New folder" will be created.
D. Rename it HJT

Move\Unzip hijackthis.exe to the c:\HJT folder.


Delete this file:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winlogin.exe <-- this file
Note: there is a legitimate Windows file with a similar name: winlogon.exe in the c:\windows\system32\ folder. Do not delete the legitimate winlogon.exe file.

Download Ad-aware SE 1.05: 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.

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

Ad-Aware will delete also some files on reboot.

REBOOT your machine and run Ad-Aware again.


Download System Security Suite here:
System Security Suite Download & Tutorial. Unzip it to your desktop.
Install the program. Don't use it yet.

Please print or copy these instructions because you are not able to access the Internet in SafeMode.

Make sure you are set to show hidden files and folders:
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

REBOOT into SafeMode by tapping F8 key repeatedly at bootup: Starting your computer in Safe mode

Run HijackThis!, press Scan, and put a check mark next to all these:

Close all other windows and browsers, and press the Fix Checked button.

Search for these files and delete them if present:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\nnan.dll <-- this file


With all windows and browsers closed.
Clean out temporary and Temporary Internet Files.
A. Open System Security Suite.
B. In the Items to Clear tab thick:
- Internet Explorer (left pane): Cookies & Temporary files
- My Computer (right pane): Temporary files & Recycle Bin
Press the Clear Selected Items button.
Close the program.

REBOOT normally.

Run HijackThis! again and post a new log please.

Many thanks Daisuke for your help. It's refreshing to know there are people out there willing to help.

It appears that about:blank has been snuffed out even after rebooting.

Computer still seems to be running more slowly though.

New HJT log below as requested.

Thanks again.

Download remv3.zip from here: http://forums.skads.org/index.php?showtopic=80 (last post --> Attached File)

and save it on your desktop. Then extract the zip file to c:\ms4hd.

Boot your computer into Safe Mode. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: How to boot Windows into Safe Mode

Navigate to c:\ms4hd and double-click on the remv3.bat file. When it is done it will open a log file of what it found. This log file is saved in c:\log.txt.

Reboot your computer back to normal mode and post the contents of c:\log.txt. To open it, click on start, then run, and type notepad c:\log.txt and press the OK button.

A notepad will open up. Please create a reply to this message and post the contents of that notepad along with a new hijackthis log.

Sorry, I think I am being very stupid here, but do I need to CREATE a file c:\ms4hd ? I can't find it if it does already exist!

The rest of your instructions seem straightforward enough.

Thanks again.

Create a folder c:\ms4hd, or whatever, foldername is not important.

Extract the content of the zip file there, reboot into safe mode, navigate to the "whatever" folder and run remv3.bat.

OK ?
