Unwanted Pop Ups - Think I might be infected - 2nd Computer

Unread postby Chloe Pessoa » January 2nd, 2007, 6:48 pm

I am not clever with computers - so please tell me if I have done this incorrectly - I was told to start a new thread

Hi my name is Chloe and Malware (Curlylad) has been assisting me with my computer for the reasons above. However, my son has a computer downstairs which he uses via (USB wireless adapter) to my Broadband and he is having the same problems of Pop Ups telling him he has Trojan and he needs to purchase their software to get rid of them. He has Norton Internet Security 2007, and that does nothing. I now need assistance with clearing my son's computer.

Thank you

Hi Chloe....

On your son's computer, please do the following:

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe.
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again. Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on Edit>Select All; then click on Edit>Copy to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hi Navigator

Thank you for your response - I will do as you have asked and get back to you as soon as I can. Trying to locate disk to download use of ethernet/usb on son's computer as he has been using wireless, but cannot connect to internet with wireless in safe mode.

Will get back as soon as I can

Regards
Chloe

Hi Navigator

Pleaese accept my apologies, but my son has been working away, and need to move computer upstairs to connect to wired hub, as most things dont work with the wireless - hope to do that tomorrow

Thank you for being patient with me.

Hi Navigator
Thank you for being patient with me. However, this is being done by the wireless as not able to connect by wire - herewith is the log you requested.

No problem Chloe.... :D

After looking at the HJT log, I'd like to see another 'list' before we get started:

1. Open HijackThis, click Open Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

Thanks...

Hello chloe.....Let's get started:

1. Look in your control panel's add/remove programs list for MediaTickets by OIN, PuritySCAN By OIN, OuterInfo, OIN or similar , click on each in turn (that are present) and click remove.

If none of the programs are listed, or if the ones present will not remove, download and run this uninstaller:
Purity Scan Uninstaller

Tutorial for the uninstaller if needed

2. Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only

Save it to your desktop, we will use it later.

3. Next, download AVG anti-spyware (previously Ewido) from HERE and save that file to your desktop.
This is a 30 day trial of the program
  • Once you have downloaded AVG anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  • Once the setup is complete you will need run ewido and update the definition files.
  • On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  • Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close AVG anti-spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.

4. Please re-open HiJackThis and choose scan only. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust ... yahoo.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust ... _side.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust ... yahoo.com/
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [pas_check] C:\Program Files\SystemDoctor 2006 Free\pasmon.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [IHUbtbb] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Motive\InstallHelper.exe" /DIR="C:\Program Files\Common Files\Motive" /UninstallVendor=btbb


Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

5. Reboot into safe mode by restarting your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

6. Please delete these folders using Windows Explorer (if present):
  • Click Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>Windows Explorer
  • Navigate to the listed folders, then right-click to select them and click delete


C:\Program Files\SystemDoctor 2006 Free
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Motive
C:\Program Files\PurityScan


7. Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    Under Main choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser
    Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser
    Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.


8. IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while AVG Anti-Spyware is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess:
  • Lauch AVG-anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
  • ewido will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
  • Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
  • Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
  • Close AVG and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.


9. Post back with a new HJT log, the AVG scan results and let me know how the computer is doing....

Good job Chloe....that HJT appears 'clean'. Is the computer still having any problems? Are the pop-ups gone?

All AVG found were two entries in system restore, which we'll get rid of before we are through.

If the computer is doing OK, you can skip this next step if you want...otherwise let's do an online scan to do another check:

Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report


Post back with the Panda Scan results if you do it, and let me know how the computer is operating.....I believe we'll be able to finish up.

Hi Navigator

This computer is fine now - no more pop ups - and it seems to be running fine.
Thanks

Do we need to do anything else? Do I take off the items I have put on the desktop e.g. Hijack etc.,?

Regards

Hi chloe....that's great!!

You can feel free to remove anything we put on your machine to clean it, HJT too. If you want, you can keep the ATF File Cleaner though...it's a great temp file cleaner that is easy to run...certainly easier than doing it manually. Your choice.

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT! - If you are using Windows XP then you should reset system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point and that you have a clean restore point should you need one!

    Now let's reset your restore points.

    Click Start Menu >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> SystemRestore

    Press OK. Choose 'Create a Restore Point' then Next. Name it and press 'Create' then when the confirmation screen shows the restore point has been created click 'Close'.

    Next go to Start Menu >> Run, then type:

    cleanmgr


    click OK, when Disk Cleanup opens go to the 'More Options' tab and press 'Cleanup' on the system restore area which will remove all the restore points except the one we just created. To close Disk Cleanup and remove the Temporary Internet Files detected in the initial scan click OK then choose Yes on the confirmation window.

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy- Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • ATF Cleaner by Atribune. This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only. ATF is a new, freeware, temporary file cleaner for Windows, IE, Firefox and Opera with a simple, easy-to-use interface. The main screen allows the user to either clean all temporary files, or select files for cleaning. The program also knows if Firefox and or Opera is being used, and gives the option of cleaning the temporary files associated with those applications.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein. These are excellent reads too: I'm not pulling your leg and Malware: Preventing the Infection



Remember...be careful out there! :D

Hi Navigator

I have downloaded all the things you suggeted, and when I did Spybot Search & Destroy still found 11 items, which were removed. Will this always be the case? Maybe a stupid question to you, but remember I am new!!!

Does this mean that this computer is now finished? Gosh!!!

Each screening program finds different things....but a lot of what they find may something as relatively harmless as 'cookies' and the like. And, if anyone spends any significant time on the internet, they are going to get some trash on their system...it's a fact of life. The reason that multiple anti-spyware programs (not anti-virus programs of which you should only have one installed/active) can be benficial is that each finds different things.

The HJT log is clean, and if the computer continues to act OK, the fact that something like Spybot finds some 'baddies' doesn't in and of itself mean the computer is 're-infected'. If you spend any time on these boards (and I would encourage it if for nothing else than for the computer security education you will assimilate) you will begin to recognize what is a 'nusiance' from what is 'harmful'....heck, that's how I learned!

Does this answer your question?
