Welcome to the MalWare Removal forums! My name is Tim. I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems. HijackThis logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happens.

Hi covers

I see signs in your log of an infection. I need to see deeper please do the following


Run an online scan at Kaspersky

If you have a and extra tool that blocks popups(I hear beep when mine pops it) you will have to click on it and allow Kaspersky 's popup link.

  • Please go here to run Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner.

  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT

  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:

    1. Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    • Extended

    2. Scan Options:
    • Scan Archives
    • Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan, select My Computer.
  • This will scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  • Now click on the Save as Text button, and save it to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Hi covers

Your virus protection(firewall) may have blocked it.

We will do this
Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) With Arrow Keys Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site: http://www.pchell.com/support/safemode.shtml

Next

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press Enter
This program will scan large amounts of files on your computer for known patterns so please be patient while it works. When it is done, the results of the scan will be displayed and it will create a log named rapport.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log in your next reply.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other options until you are asked to do so!

When done reboot back to normal mode and post rapport.txt

The reason Smitfraud couldn't find 'process.exe' seems to be that I needed to extract the original Smitfraud zip file 1st. I did this and it worked.

Hi covers,
Thanks for the logs.
Windows and some installed programs will use temp files which locks them and disallows them being deleted.
The temp files that wouldn't delete maybe nothing but if you want to check do the following.

Please go to http://www.virustotal.com/en/indexf.html and follow the

instructions to upload (full path to temp file to be checked.Example>C:\Windows\Temp\??????) from your pc for a scan.
Please copy / paste the results into your next reply.

I also checked the registry for 'freetestonline.net' which was one of the icons installed on the desktop when I was hijacked. I found 1 instance of it in a folder called 'Search Assistant' which I found last time as well. I've deleted that.
My browser now seems ok so thanks for all your help. Anything else I need to do?

Hi covers,

Sorry about the delay on repling.
Glad to hear things are running better now.
Log looks clean... great job!

Please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

  1. 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

    Re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  2. Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:

    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.

      1. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      2. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      3. Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      4. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      5. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      6. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      7. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      8. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    5. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.


  3. 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

  4. Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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 this 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

  8. Install Ad-Aware - Download and install Ad-Aware.
    You should also scan your computer with this 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

  9. Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add 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

  10. IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

    Using IE-SPYAD to help block unwanted sites and activities

  11. 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.

done as you suggested. All but one of the active x bits were already as you suggested. I have ad-aware, spywareblaster, norton anti-virus + microsoft anti-spyware. I will install the others. The things we need to do just to stop some idiots ... well, being idiots. Once again, thanks
