Infected or not?

Unread postby daconnor » August 12th, 2006, 10:30 am

I've got a WinXP SP2 machine that my grand daughter is using where I can't make any change to the homepage stick which alerted me to the possibility of some nasty being resident.

I've scanned it with everything I could think off but no success so I'm wondering if it is actually infected.

Hopefully this logfile might give some clues please.

Hi again daconnor,

There isn't any malware showing in your HijackThis log.

However, you have Ad-Aware's Ad-Watch which I would like you to disable and then check to see if you can change your homepage. Do the following to disable Ad-Watch:
  1. Right click on the Ad-Watch icon in the system tray and select Restore Ad-Watch.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, there will be two checkable items called Active and Automatic.
    1. Active: Switches Monitoring On or Of without closing
    2. Automatic: Switches Automatic Blocking On or Off
  3. Uncheck (red X) both items.
Please let me know if you can now change your Homepage in your next reply.

=====

I don't see any indication of a Firewall in your HijackThis log. This may be because:


(1.) You are using Windows Firewall or a hardware Firewall.
(2.) You are using a Firewall of an unknown vendor.
(3.) You are using a Firewall, but it is disabled for unknown reasons
(4.) You don't use any firewall at all.

In the case you don't have a Firewall, please download one from below - They are Free!

Zone Alarm << I recommend this
Sunbelt Kerio PF
Outpost Firewall

=====

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update to the latest version...

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 8.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications."
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement."
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-1_5_0_08-windowsi586-p.exe to install the newest version.

=====

In your next reply, please let me know the situation regarding your Homepage and post a new HijackThis log.

Hi daconnor,

I'm glad things are back to normal again, and I'm happy to say your HijackThis log is still clean. :thumbleft:

Just a note on Windows Firewall: It only blocks incoming traffic and not outgoing, but if you are happy with Windows Firewall, that is fine. Otherwise you can grab one of the Free Firewalls listed in my previous post at any time.

Here are some measures you can take to stay more secure online:

Secure your Internet Explorer by going here and following the instructions there.

Better yet, use an alternative browser! Download FireFox and give it a run. It is far more secure than Internet Explorer. Or, you can get Opera.

Use a firewall to help prevent your PC(s) from being usurped by undesireables. If you don't have a Firewall, then choose one from the list here

Install an Anti-Virus. There are some good, free AV's available today. Make sure that it is updated regularly and have it scan your system often. If you don't have an Anti-Virus program, choose one from the list here

Install and keep updated, Ad-Aware SE and Spybot Search & Destroy.
Run them both on a regular basis, following the manufacturer's recommendations.

Install and keep updated, SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard

Check for Windows Updates. Microsoft regularly post updates for your systems safe running. Make sure to take advantage of this. Reboot when installed and return to make sure there are no others.

Clear your Temp folders.
Go to Start > Control Panel > Internet Options.
Under the General tab click the Delete Files... button; check the Delete all offline content box and press OK. Next, click the Delete Cookies... button and press OK

Go to "Start" -> "Run" and type in the box: "cleanmgr" press OK. Select the drive where your Operating System is installed (Default is C:) and press OK. Let Disk Cleanup scan your system for files to remove (it takes a few minutes!). On the next screen make sure these 3 options are checked
  • Temporary Files
  • Temporary Internet Files
  • Recycle Bin
and then press "OK" to remove:

Go to Start > Find/Search > Files or folders > in the named box, type: *.tmp and choose Edit > select all -> File > delete.

Empty/delete the entire contents from the following folders:
C:\Windows\temp
C:\temp <-- if you have one.
Note: Empty contents but don't delete the folder(s) itself.

Clear out temp files from the following location. Change "username" to whatever you have on your computer.
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
In order to view these files you may have to select 'show hidden files/folders.' Instructions on how to here.

Empty the Recycle Bin!

Hide system files
It is very important that system files and folders are hidden again, so that they DO NOT get deleted by mistake. To hide system files and folders, do the following for your operating system...

Windows XP
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, uncheck Do not show hidden files and folders
* Check the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.


For XP users.
It's a good idea to Flush your System Restore points after ridding yourself of malware: You can clean this by doing the following:

  • Click Start | Help and Support | Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.
  • Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name it and then click Create, then Close.
  • Close the Help and Support Center box.
  • Click Start | Run and type Cleanmgr
  • Select (C: ) then click OK.
  • Click the More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore Section.
This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

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

If you have any more problems, post back. Otherwise, respond once more so we may archive this thread. :)
