desktop hijack

Unread postby rkp » October 2nd, 2006, 9:53 pm

My desktop has been taken over by an ad for a link to a site which advertises "total pc protection". The image is named "yod", which is similar to a previous post on this site. The malware has disabled many of my desktop and internet function buttons, and has so far resisted my attempts to locate and remove it. I ran Ad-Aware, Sypbot, and other programs to try to fix the problem, but didn't get anywhere. I removed some problems, but obviously didn't get the job done. Any assistance that could be provided would be greatly appreciated!

Hello rkp...welcome to Malware Removal!

1. Anti-Virus programs take up an enormous amount of your computer's resources when they are actively scanning your computer. Having two anti-virus programs running at the same time can cause your computer to run very slow, become unstable and even, in rare cases, crash.

You have two AV programs on your system and both are active in the processes list, AVG and Anti-Vir...I would recommend that you either disable one from being active or choose one to continue forward with and remove/uninstall the other.

2. You are currently using HijackThis from a temporary directory, this can cause problems.
HijackThis creates backups, these are needed in case of any recovery issues.
Please create a directory on your C:\ drive called C:\HJT, move the HJT download into this new location and unzip HijackThis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on.

STEPS For Creating Folder
  • Please go to My Computer, open your C:\ drive, Select: New >> Folder and name the folder HJT.
  • Copy the HijackThis.zip download to the new folder
  • Double Click on 'HijackThis.zip' to extract and install HijackThis.exe to the new folder.

Run HJT from now on from this new folder...

If required, look at this Hijackthis Folder Tutorial


3. Reveal Hidden Files

  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • SelectTools menu
  • Click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Check Show hidden files and foldersin the Hidden files and folders section.
  • Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types option.
  • Click Yes.
  • Click OK.



4. There are some files I'd like to get analyzed:

C:\WINNT\system32\sumsw32.exe


Just to be safe, go to this site and have it scan them:
Jotti virus scan

Use the Browse button at Jotti, navigate to the file's location on your hard drive and submit them one at a time.

Let us know the results.




5. Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other option until you are directed to do so!

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
http://www.beyondlogic.org/consulting/proc...processutil.htm

Please post back with the SmitfraudFix log, and the Jotti file analysis results, and a new HJT log....

next steps

Unread postby rkp » October 2nd, 2006, 11:21 pm

Thanks for the response. I really appreciate it.

To make sure I've hit all the steps, I'll respond in order.

1) I've removed one of the antivirus programs.
2) I've put HijackThis in a permanent folder on my hard drive.
3) I cannot reveal hidden files--the option appears to be disabled. (One option disabled of many from this particular problem).
4) Good call. Jotti says:

You are welcome....!

Please print out or copy these instructions/tutorial to Notepad as the internet will not be (while in Safe Mode) available to you at certain points of the removal process. Make sure to work through all the Steps in the exact order in which they are listed below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before moving on with the fixes.

Please download Ewido to your Desktop or to your usual Download Folder.
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
  • Install Ewido by double clicking the installer.
  • Follow the prompts. Make sure that Launch Ewido is checked.
  • On the main screen under Your Computer's security.
    • Click on Change state next to Resident shield. It should now change to inactive.
    • Next to Last Update, click on Update now. (You will need an active internet connection to perform this)
    • Wait until you see the Update succesfull message.
  • Right-click the Ewido Tray Icon and select Exit. Confirm by clicking Yes.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
Ewido manual updates.
Download the Full database to your Desktop or to your usual Download Folder and install it by double clicking the file. Make sure that Ewido is closed before installing the update.
______________________________

Reboot your computer in Safe Mode.
  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power.
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe Mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • Login on your usual account.
