I'm home visiting my mom, and in addition to the usual adware and
annoying stuff that I was able to take care of, she has Search Extender
on her machine. I'm stumped. Can you help? Here's the Hijack This log:

Hey,

I need you to do the following so I can see if there are any malicious files running behind the scenes that need to be dealt with first

Download For Win9x/ME: findit9xMe - http://lineofire.geekstogo.com/FindIt%209x-ME.zip

Unzip the contents of finditnt.zip to a convenient location such as Desktop.

Navigate to the Find It NT-2K-XP (Win9x&MEFindit) folder and double-click on

find.bat. ( Win9x-Find.bat )

A command prompt will open and it will search your computer for malicious files.

Once it has finished a Notepad window will pop up with output.txt.

Copy the entire contents of output.txt into your next post, and include another hijackthis log please.

Try not to reboot after doing this, until I get back to you.
Thanks

Bertha

Hey Urban,

Copy this to a notepad file for reference

Please download Winhelp2002's Deldomains.inf to your desktop.
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

(Dont Install It Yet)


Ok lets use Killbox to remove the file/folder that is being so stubborn:

Download Pocket Killbox here -

http://www.malwareremoval.com/downloads.html

Now take a look at this post as it will guide you through the installation process as well as the removal process incase you get confused:

http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=320

Once you have installed Killbox we need to begin to delete the file folder:

If you look at the topic above this is what we are going to do (so read this part):

How to use KILLBOX to delete a file - Delete on reboot kill - Delete on reboot kill

ChrisRLG

Open Killbox and check a mark in the "RadioBox" which says "Delete On Reboot"

Under "Full Path or File to Delete copy and paste this entry below:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ghitb.dll

Now press the red cross and a new window will pop up asking you to confirm the removal CLICK YES

Now it will ask you if you wish to reboot click NO as we have more files to add first, copy and paste this entry

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\fvncg.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\vutln.txt
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\exjkd.dat



After you have added the above entry and it asks if you wish to restart CLICK YES and the computer will restart

As the computer boots back up go into safe mode (F8 on Startup)

Once in Safe Mode

Right-click on the deldomains.inf file and select 'Install'

Once it is finished your Zones should be reset.

Note, if you use SpywareBlaster and/or IE/Spyads, it will be necessary to re-install the protection both afford. For SpywareBlaster, run the program and re-protect all items. For IE/Spyads, run the batch file and reinstall the protection.

Reboot into Normal Mode

Post a New Hijackthis Log back here and well move onto the next part

Thanks again for your help! That seems to have permanently removed those sites from the "Trusted Zone". What's next?

Urban,

Copy this to a Notepad file for reference

Now we tackle the About Blank infection

===============

If you haven't ran HouseCall lately, let's go back to www.trendmicro.com, download the latest definitions, and run it.

===============

Reboot your computer into "Safe Mode"

===============

Next, locate/Download http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cw ... nload.html
CWShredder and run it, then:

1. Click "Check For Update"

(If an update isn't a'ailable, skip to step #4.)

2. Click "Click here to Download the upate".
3. When the new version has been downloaded, click "Save".

4. Click "Fix ->"

===============

Download, unzip to your desktop http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4289.html About:Buster and run it, then:
Locate About:Buster that you downloaded earlier and run it, then:

1. Click "Update".
2. Click "Check For Update"

(If no new version is available, skip to step #4.)

3. Click "Download Update", and wait for it to be installed.
4. Click "Start".

(Wait for the initial ADS scan to complete.)

5. Click "Yes", to shutdown any IE session currently open.

(Wait for the about:blank scan to complete.)

6. Click "Ok", to scan once more.
7. Click "Yes", to shutdown any IE sessions currently open.
8. Click "Yes", to begin the second pass.

9. Click "Save log", and post this log back along with your new log.
10. Click "Exit".
11. Click "Exit".

===============

Reboot your computer normally.

===============

Now, let's open a command prompt and unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following:

regsvr32 /u ADDHN32.DLL

It's ok, if these aren't found or 'error' out. If you want, just copy and paste the individual lines to the command prompt to save on the typing.

===============

Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:


R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll/sp.html#76985
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll/sp.html#76985
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll/sp.html#76985
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll/sp.html#76985
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll/sp.html#76985
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll/sp.html#76985
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = 64.136.29.30;64.136.21.30;64.136.29.34;searchap.untd.com;127.0.0.1;localhost;*windowsupdate.microsoft.com;*windowsupdate.com;*wustat.windows.com;*.pogo.com;*test-speed.com;liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com;*symantec.com;*.nai.com;*.networkassociates.com;<local>

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

N2 - Netscape 6: user_pref("browser.search.defaultengine", "engine://C%3A%5CPROGRAM%20FILES%5CNETSCAPE%5CNETSCAPE%206%5Csearchplugins%5CSBWeb_02.src"); (C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\xdkxw5cy.slt\prefs.js)

O2 - BHO: Class - {C88D1196-988E-A705-3F4D-3DA419AF86C6} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ADDHN32.DLL


Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============


When your done, rescan your system and make sure the following isn't present:

N3 - Netscape ... 5CSBWeb_01.src (or) 5CSBWeb_02.src

If it is, then fix that entry again; sometimes it'll take more than one pass. The actual entry is ok, and won't be deleted, it's the java wrapper marked in red that needs to be removed.

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure your able to view system and hidden files/ folders: see here - http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html

files...

C:\WINDOWS\qubcs.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ADDHN32.DLL

-

Note that some of these file(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them from "Safe Mode" see here - http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ts ... ec_doc_nam

===============

Post back a new log, and let me know how everything goes.

-
