Hello Twin Gatz,

Welcome to the MRU forums.

Just for future reference, everyone who helps around here is a volunteer and spends whatever free time they can spare helping folks such as yourself. We also check first for zero (0) reply threads so replying to your own thread may result in it being overlooked. In other words, please be patient. 8)

Nothing jumps out as an infection in your log file, so let's just start with the easy stuff first:
These are optional item(s) that may provide an increase in system performance and available resources if fixed. They are programs that can be launched manually when needed. If you are not sure what these item(s) are, be sure to post back any questions before proceding:

Launch Hijackthis and click: "Do a system scan only". Place a checkmark next to the following entries:

C:\Program Files\BitTorrent\bittorrent.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MimBoot] C:\PROGRA~1\MUSICM~1\MUSICM~3\mimboot.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\jusched.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IPHSend] C:\Program Files\Common Files\AOL\IPHSend\IPHSend.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BitTorrent] "C:\Program Files\BitTorrent\bittorrent.exe" --force_start_minimized
O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

With ALL other Windows closed, click "Fix checked".

Next, let's do a couple of scans.

Please go HERE to run the Trend Microâ„¢ HouseCall Scan.

***Colored items*** available in Internet Explorer only
  • Read and place a check mark next to-"Yes, I accept the terms of use".
  • Place a check mark next to-"I want to select a different Housecall Kernel".
  • Click Launch HouseCall.
  • Select:
  • Using Java-Based Housecall Kernel
  • Click Starting HouseCall.
    ****Or****
  • "Browser plug-in" Installing and using the Housecall Kernel
  • Click Starting HouseCall --(Allow ActiveX install)
  • Choose:
  • "Scan complete computer for malware, greyware and vulnerabilities".
  • Click Next.
    ****Or****
  • "Scan individuals selected folders only".
  • Click Select.
  • Select folders to scan.
  • Click Next.

  • Please be patient, the scan can take a while.
  • When the scan is finished, a summary page will open.
  • Under Cleanup options:
  • Choose clean all detected infections automatically.
  • Click Clean now>>.
  • If malware was found you may be prompted to run the scan again, you can just close the browser window.
  • Please write down the full path and filename of anything that could not be cleaned/deleted.
Download and Install: AVG Anti-Spyware.
Once installed, please 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 yet: We'll do so shortly.
  • Exit AVG Anti-Spyware.
Reboot into Safe Mode:
  • Restart your computer
  • Contiunally tap F8 until a menu appears.
  • Use your up/down arrow key to highlight Safe Mode.
  • Hit enter.
Please close ALL open windows/programs/folders. Have nothing else open as it can interfere with AVG Anti-Spyware while performs its scan!

Run the AVG Anti-Spyware 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 AVG Anti-Spyware
in your next reply, please include:
  • The full path and filename of anything that Trend Micro couldn't clean/delete.
  • The report from AVG anti-Spyware.
  • A fresh Hijackthis log. :wave:

Sorry for not being patient. :( . Ok, In the first scan I deleted everything and there was nothing it couldn't delete because It would have said so if it couldn't right?? I also updated all my microsfot vulnerable applications so that they are safe. I hope I did that right.



Here is my AVG scan log.

Now also I have been getting Auto protect reports that say.

W32.IRCBOT
W32.ALCRA.B
W32.Backdoor Trojan

and it says under count that there is 2 of each and that it deleted them. I'm not sure about this because I got the Auto protect thing twice. I just want to know if it truly deleted them because I know that trojans are bad. My computer is running slightly faster but I still think there is something there.


After your done helping me should I make a new restore point named clean pc. I saw this in another thread and thought it was a good idea to do that.


Thanks alot for all your help and for taking the time to do so.

Hello Twin Gatz,

Well, there are no indications of either of those Trojans in your latest Hijackthis log. 8) For peace of mind, let's do the following:

Plrase Download the trial version of F-Secure Blacklight.

From the download page:
  • Read the terms.
  • Click "Accept".
  • Click "Download".
  • Save to desktop.

    Launch Blacklight:
  • Double-click F-Secure icon on desktop.
  • Select "I accept the agreement".
  • Click Next.
  • Click Scan.
  • (Scan will take a while. Please be patient).
  • When Scan is finished:
    • Click Next.
    • Click Exit.
  • Log file fsblxxxxxx.txt will be created on desktop.
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.

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.
There are also still some programs that are starting along with Windows that can be run manually when needed and only take up valuable system resources when not needed. To disable them:

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

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [DellSupport] "C:\Program Files\Dell Support\DSAgnt.exe" /startup
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [!AVG Anti-Spyware] "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\avgas.exe" /minimized
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MsgCenterExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\RealOneMessageCenter.exe" -osboot
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MMTray] C:\PROGRA~1\MUSICM~1\MUSICM~3\mm_tray.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ISUSPM Startup] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\isuspm.exe" -startup
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ISUSScheduler] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\issch.exe" -start


With all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

In your next reply, please include the following:
  • The F-Secure Blacklight log.
  • A fresh Hijackthis log.
Things are looking pretty dandy so far. When we get everything all cleaned up, I will post do a list of things to do as a final cleanup as well as some tips on how to keep your computer secure. :wave:

Hello Twin Gatz,

OK, things are looking good. 8) You really should update your version of Java as described below. The reasons for this are stated in the first paragraph.

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.

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.
Other than that:

Congratulations! Your log looks clean - good work!

Below is my standard "Final Cleanup" and "All Clean" speech. Included in it are tips on how to keep your computer from being reinfected. They are simple to set up and simple to maintain, and I HIGHLY recommend that you follow them. (I use every one.)

Download and scan with CCleaner
NOTE: Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation. IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build.

Before first use:
Sselect Options=>Advanced.
UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

Select the items you wish to clean up.

A note regarding cookies: CCleaner allows you to keep the cookies from selected sites such as those which use cookies to save your login information.

From the main screen:
  • Click Options=>Cookies.
  • Highlight the web sites you wish to keep.
  • Click "->" button.
  • Click Cleaner button to return to main screen.
  • Windows tab:
    **Internet Explorer** header:
  • Select everything .
    **Windows Explorer** header:
  • Select all
    **System** header:
  • Select all
  • Advanced tab:
  • Select all entries
  • Select any others that you choose.
  • Applications tab:
    **Firefox/Mozilla header** (if you use it).
  • Select all
    **Opera** header (if you use it).
  • Select all
    **Internet** header.
  • Select Sun Java
  • Select any others thatyou choose.
Caution: It is not recommended that you use the "Issues" feature unless you are very familiar with the registry as it has been known to find legitimate items.
  • Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
  • A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
  • Click "OK"
  • CCleaner will scan and clean your system.
  • When cleaning is complete:
  • Click "Exit".
  • Repeat for all usernames.
If everything is running ok, let's do the final cleanup...

1. Run "Disk Cleanup" and allow it to remove everything it finds.

2. If you've downloaded MicroWorld AV (MWAV), run it again - but don't scan, just click "Clear Log" and exit the program.

3. Please go HERE to run the Trend Micro HouseCall Scan.

***Colored items*** available in Internet Explorer only
  • Read and place a check mark next to-"Yes, I accept the terms of use".
  • Place a check mark next to-"I want to select a different Housecall Kernel".
  • Click Launch HouseCall.
  • Select:
  • Using Java-Based Housecall Kernel
  • Click Starting HouseCall.****Or****
  • "Browser plug-in" Installing and using the Housecall Kernel
  • Click Starting HouseCall (Allow ActiveX install)
  • Choose:
  • "Scan complete computer for malware, greyware and vulnerabilities".
  • Click Next.****Or****
  • "Scan individuals selected folders only".
  • Click Select.
  • Select folders to scan.
  • Click Next.
  • Please be patient, the scan can take a while.
  • When the scan is finished, a summary page will open.
  • Under Cleanup options.
  • Choose:
  • Clean all detected infections automatically.
  • Click Clean now >> .
  • If malware was found, you may be prompted to run the scan again
  • You can just close the browser window.
  • Please write down the full path and filename of anything that could not be cleaned/deleted.
4. Disable, then reenable System Restore; with a reboot in-between. Then immediately create a new system restore point manually.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster => SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard => SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware => If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware => If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad => IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file => The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
  • Google Toolbar => Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
  • Use a Firewall => I can not stress enough how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. For an excellent article on Firewalls, why you should use one and a some of those available, see Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls. I recommend ZoneAlarm or Sunbelts Kerio. ZoneAlarm is more user-friendly, but Sunbelts Kerio is considered more secure.
  • UPDATE!-UPDATE!-UPDATE! => This is, without a doubt, THE MOST IMPORTANT element in keeping your computer free of malware. Keep each and every one of your anti-malware tools AND Windows up-to-date with all current definitions and patches.
I also suggest that you delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself), for example:
  • C:\WINDOWS\Temp\--->Everything After the \.
  • C:\Temp\--->Everything After the \.
  • C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\--->Everything After the \.
  • Repeat for all users.
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files and cookies:
  • Click Start=>Control Panel=>Internet options.
  • Under the Generaltab.
  • Click Delete Files button.
  • Place a check-mark in Delete all off-line content.
  • Click OK
  • Click Delete Cookies
  • Click OK=>OK
  • Exit Control Panel
  • Repeat for all users.
In Firefox:
  • Click Tools=>Options=>Privacy icon.
  • Click Cache tab.
  • Click Clear Cache button.
  • Click Cookies tab.
  • Click Clear Cookies Now button.
  • Click OK
  • Repeat for all users.
Empty the recycle bin:
  • Right-click the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop.
  • Select "Empty Recycle Bin".
  • Repeat forall users.
Note: You can also do the above steps using a program such as CCleaner.
PLEASE NOTE: The above steps should be done on a regular basis.

Also, please see: So how did I get infected in the first place?
