Hey, I'm an asst. network admin. here and someone who works in the office brought me their computer because it was running "slow." well, slow doesnt describe it, it was practically shot but i ran spybot S&D, adaware, and went through the registry for a solid week. Spybot found 26000 entries after running for 3 days, taking another day just to delete them! Anyway, I used to come here last summer and was being trained with HJT so I figured I would scan it and just take a look at the log and see how bad it was (no, I didn't do anything, I just scanned and looked up some processes to see what she had) so here I am, and here is the log!

Thanks in advance for the help...

Oh dear... so, what do you think the problem is and how would you go about fixing it?

Have you done some searching on this one?

I looks like it has About:Blank v.1&2, and I don't even know what the deal is with all those O2's. I haven't been in training in awhile, nor do I have the resources now either. I reapplied.

Another note: This computer is at work, and I leave at 4:30 EST today and normally 5:00 EST so I'm leaving soon. So I won't be able to get back to you about it until tomorrow.

First of all you need to turn off Spybots teatimer.

Click running icon of Spybot's teatimer and choose exit

Now I need you to download some programs for use later.

Download this file and unzip it to your desktop

Download About:Buster from here. Once it is downloaded extract it to c:\aboutbuster and check for updates. Do NOT use it yet

Download CWShredder from here, install it, check for updates but again, don't use it yet.

Download Ewido Anti-Spyware 4.0 from here. Once installed, make the following settings changes:
  • Under the Status menu (which opens by default), under "Your Computer's Security," Change Status on Resident Guard to Inactive
  • Click Update Now
  • Under the now-opened Update menu, uncheck "Download and Install Updates Automatically (Recommended)"
  • Click Scanner in the top bar
  • Click the Settings tab
    • Under "How To Act?" set "Default Action for Detected Malware" to Quarantine
    • Under "How to Scan" ALL boxes should be checked
    • Under "What to Scan," "Scan every file" should be highlighted
    • Under "Possibly Unwanted Software" ALL boxes should be checked
  • Under Reports select "Automatically generate report after every scan" and uncheck "Only if threats were found"
Do not scan with it yet!

Ensure hidden files and folders are set to show;
  • 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 the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.

Please disconnect from the Internet and unplug your modem for the duration of this fix You may want to print the rest of these instructions.

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode by tapping F8 while booting up and continue for the rest of the fix in SAFE MODE

While in safe mode, double click on the HSfix.reg file you downloaded at the beginning. Grant it permission to add the registry items.

Then Open cwshredder that you downloaded in the first step. Close all browser windows and click on the fix/next button.

Now find and delete these files, if you can't find one then don't worry.. just move on to the next one.

C:\WINDOWS\okmlo.dll
C:\WINDOWS\alnwb.dll


Now run hijackthis and click the scan button, when it has finished scanning put a check against the following and click 'fix checked'

The following step is important as you may have several malware files in your temp directories.

Then browse to the C:\documents and settings\Your User Name (repeat for all other user names in documents and settings)\local settings\temp folder and delete all files and folders in it. Then browse to the C:\Window\Temp folder and delete all files and folders in it. Then in internet explore click tools>internet Options>General. Click on Delete Files make sure you get all offline content as well.

Now navigate to the c:\aboutbuster directory and double-click on AboutBuster.exe. Click Begin Removal to allow AboutBuster to scan. When it has finished, AboutBuster will open a 'Scan Completed' window. Click OK. Another information window will open. Click on Exit. AboutBuster will inform you that a log has been created. Click OK. I will need you to post that log later.

Run an Ewido Scan
  • Click on the Scan Tab
  • Click on Complete System Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine -- it can take a while, just give it time.
  • When scan has finished, at bottom of screen click Apply all Actions
  • Click Save Report
  • Click Save Report As ("Save As" window should pop up.)
  • Click Desktop
  • Click Save
  • Exit ewido


Now reboot,and run hijackthis again and post a fresh log along with the about buster log and the Ewido log. :)

I'll be here tomorrow too!

So everything was going smoothly, then I started Aboutbuster. I ran it, it cleaned everything, but during the process deleted some vital files (hal.dll being 1). Windows will no longer start, but I'm in the process of trying to fix that.

I've never had a problem with the tool before now, I will contact the developer and let him know.
