IE start page changed & taskbar shows critical error

Unread postby emaqio » October 15th, 2006, 1:03 am

Hi,

I didn't get a reply and realised threads above mine was already answered. I forgot to mention a few things and replied my own thread and realised that this is probably the reason as volunteers look for 0 reply threads to help. I sincerely apologise for my mistake and will try to be as detailed as possible regarding my problem in this thread.

I suddenly had my start page changed and a lot of pop-ups when my pop up blocker usually blocks it. I downloaded spybot, adaware and spyware blaster. It cleared some stuff but when I start Internet explorer it still does not show my prefered start page and goes directly to this page asking me to buy spyware removers.

My taskbar also shows a ? sign that alternates with an X sign and says critical system error! I also keep getting messages that I have virus from my taskbar when I surf.

I use AVG free virus scan which is always on and ccleaner to clear my cookies. I figured i got the virus or spyware when i downloaded a program called HQVideoCodec for windows media player.

I'm also worried about KEYLOGGERs. Is there a way to prevent people giving information like my password away? Thank you for your time and any help would be appreciated. Have a nice day!

cheers,

ed

Hi emaqio

First of all, be patient. We try answer every thread.

Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) to your Desktop.
http://siri.urz.free.fr/Fix/SmitfraudFix.zip
Extract all the files to your Destop. A folder named SmitfraudFix will be created on your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press Enter
This program will scan large amounts of files on your computer for known patterns so please be patient while it works. When it is done, the results of the scan will be displayed and it will create a log named rapport.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other options until you are asked to do so!

Hi

Open HijackThis, click do a system scan only and checkmark these:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {d869742a-e5d2-4624-96c7-aae26170665e} - C:\Program Files\HQVideoCodec\isaddon.dll (file missing)


Close all windows including browser and press fix checked.

Reboot.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner. You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.

  • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
  • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:

    o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:

    + Extended (If available otherwise Standard)

    o Scan Options:

    + Scan Archives
    + Scan Mail Bases

  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan select My Computer
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  • Now click on the Save as Text button
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
