The HijackThis log appears to be clean. The popup does sound bad, but it's possible that it didn't get into the computer - you may have shut it down in time.

Your computer is set to 'automatic' for Windows Update. Microsoft issued its June Updates yesterday. Do you know whether it has updated yet? It's possible that this activity is the updates being installed. I suggest that you reboot the computer, give it 15 minutes to settle down and then run another HijackThis scan. Post the log and let me know if the problem is still there.

Hi, beynac,

Yes, whilst I've been working, updates did prompt me to restart, but since you've reminded me, I notice it's not been pestering me to "do it now", like it usually does!

IE is getting slower and slower, the "windows in the task bar are sliding very slowly and jerkily when something is closed, and it's all getting a bit like Ronnie Barker on Mastermind answering the question before last!!

If I wasn't so worried, I would have to smile!

Pleased that the log seems clean, I think!
Following your instructions and shutting down. Will get back to you, if I can!!
Closed windows are now disappearing like the Cheshire cat in Alice in Wonderland!!!

Hi beynac

Things seem much better, but there is something sucking the life out of my Internet connection,
My network signal strength rarely gets above the minimum 18 Mbps, and I've run acouple of speed tests with ZD, BBMax, Blueyonder, and thinkBB

All of these usually rate my speed as around 2700 to 3300 Kbps
Current tests rate me between 500 and 780 Kbps.!!

I did a scan to see if there were any other networks in range, but though there is now, there were none when I did the tests!

Could there be something using my connection, from within??

so glad that I seem to have thwarted the rogue download (if I have!)
I wonder what could have turned off the Pop up blocker button?

Me again beynac,

Been running a few more speed tests, and they have improved, slightly.

Just a thought, we've had some torrential rain this afternoon, could it be that the landline cables have been affected?

Just clutching at straws!!

Hi.

I need to see another HijackThis log, but I think that it would be an idea to run another scan just to check on things.

SmitFraudFix (by S!Ri)
  • Please download SmitFraudFix from here and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on Smitfraud.exe
  • Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press Enter - a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Do not run any of the other options at this stage.

Please copy/paste the content of the report (c:\rapport.txt) into your next reply.

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.

---------------------------------------------------------

Please post:
  • The SmitFraudFix report (c:\rapport.txt)
  • A new HijackThis log

Hi beynac

I must be doing something wrong, I copied & pasted the Log into Notepad and saved to the Desktop, prior to running hjt.
Closed all windows and SmitFraudFix, and found a folder on the desktop, containing various items relating to the programme, but no sign of my notepad file!
what have I done wrong?

I don't know what happened to the file you saved to your desktop, but the SmitFraudFix report is C:\rapport.txt.

Click on Start then My Computer. Find the notepad (txt) file called rapport.txt. Double-click on it to open it in Notepad. Copy/paste the contents as a reply to this thread.

Don't forget to post the HijackThis log as well. :)

Hi beynac,

Maybe I've got it right this time!

Hopefully this is the rapport.txt file!

Everything looks fine. Are you sure that you are logged on to your own network connection, not to a different one?

I suggest that you see how it's running in the morning. I'm shutting down now as we've got a thunderstorm.

Let me know how it's running in the morning.

Hello there beynac,

Well, I've been playing around, copying and pasting notes and instructions for the various programmes you have advised me to install, and filing them in folders with the appropriate programme so that I won't make any mistakes when using them in future!

I've found a way to copy these pages, that reduces the file size by more than half!
Strangely, you cannot save the page that you currently are viewing, but if you point at the indicator for the next page, right click, and select "Save Target As", a window opens offering to save the document as ".htm".
I don't know what that is, but the only change appears to be that it is "off Line", links and emoticons don't work! Suits me!!

To Business!
I think that the recent precipitation was perhaps the cause of my drastic drop in speed, 'cos it's almost back to it's old self! :D

I don't understand how anyone can unknowingly ride someone elses connection, 'cos my Network Status Icon when "rolled over" pops up a window stating "Wireless Network Connection (Theracles)
I don't know what would appear when I've hidden my SSID, but for the moment, that assures me that I'm on my own connection, or am I being naive? :?
Reading Forums, this does seem to be a common thing that happens to people. I dont know if I'm just lucky, or if they are a trifle careless!

Since"forcing" AVG AntiSpyware to run yesterday evening, I appear to have forfeited my 30 day free trial :cry:
It nolonger sits in my Sys Tray, and the "Shield" mode is now inactive as are auto updates.
I intend to set myself reminders to update AntiSpyware, AntiVirus and SpywareBlaster.
I think I've read in the manual that Sunbelt Firewall Free edition auto updates, so I can leave that to take care of it's self!
Can you think of any others that I need to regularly update?

I'v still got "SmitFraudFix.exe" on my desktop, and a "SmitFraudFix" folder, containing some files that obviously relate to the running of the programme, but I don't understand them and am afraid of opening any in case it messes with the programme. To my inexperienced eye, it looks as if the ".exe" icon should be in there too!
If I can drag and drop it in there, I could then move the folder to My Docs\Security Progs.

Having had a good long session without anything strange happen, and a few "clean boots", I'm not getting that awful sinking feeling when I sit here and power up. :D
That was terrible, took away what little confidence I had, and all of the pleasure.

You can never know how grateful I am to you, for helping me get that back.
Thank you! :D

HI. I'm please that the computer is working better. I still think that it got in a bit of a tangle because of the Windows Updates being downloaded and installed. If your network connection is properly secured, you shouldn't have the problem of someone else using it. It is apparently easy to use another person's connection if it's in range and not secure (it is illegal, but that doesn't stop some people!).

Re. AVG Anti-Spyware: I've read of cases where people's trial period ends unexpectedly. I wouldn't worry about it. Make sure that you always update the program before running a scan.

New software: remember to make sure that eTrust Antivirus is uninstalled before installing your new one. Set the new antivirus program for automatic updates (this should be the default) and keep a check to make sure it is updating. If you have decided on AVG AntiVirus, there is a scheduler which you use for the updates. Make sure that this is set for a time of day when you are usually on line. The Sunbelt Firewall can be set for automatic update, but this doesn't happen very often. Once the firewall is in place it just works. There are no regular updates like an antivirus program. There are just occasional program upgrades.

SpywareBlaster doesn't update very often. I suggest that you check every week or two.

You can delete SmitFraudFix (.exe and the folder). I hope that you won't need it again but, if you did, you would need to download the latest version.

I'm glad that you've regained your confidence. It's an awful feeling when things like that are happening to your computer. If you've got any more questions, please let me know as soon as possible. I'm going on holiday this weekend and will need to close the thread.

Good luck! :)

Re: - AVG AntiVirus, Reading the manual, the free version only updates once a day at a preset time, they won't let you change it!
Since I've not installed it yet, I don't know what time, but I suspect it will be in the dead of night! Thats why I'm setting a reminder to do a manual, probably Fortnightly, for all.

I spoke too soon concerning the internet connection, latest speedtests average between47 and 211 Kbps (normally better that 2900 Kbps)
The drop coincided with "Home time" so I checked available N.wks. and there are two neighbours online, can't identify who, but they are regulars, and havn't degraded with my signal before, so I still suspect the damp weather is involved. I'll go to the DMT forum and take advice there!

I'm leaving eTrust running at present, whilst the trial is still active, and hope that it removes cleanly so as not to affect AVG AntiVirus.

Hope you're going somewhere where the sun is shining for your holiday,
'cos it's like winter here today cold and grey!

However, it's the company and the experiences that make a holiday as much as the weather.
I hope you enjoy all three!

For the future, if I need your expert help, do I start proceedings by just posting a hjt log as I did this time, or do I specifically contact you?

Re. AVG AntiVirus. My wife uses this and I have set the scheduler to update once a day in the afternoon, when she's usually online. If she doesn't use the computer for a day or two, she then does a manual update when she first goes online. Let me know if you want details of how to set this up.

It does sound as if your connection problems are with your internet service rather than your computer.

Hope you're going somewhere where the sun is shining for your holiday,
'cos it's like winter here today cold and grey!

I hope that the sun is shining - but we're going to Yorkshire! We'll enjoy it whatever the weather, but it will be better if it's dry. A week on the Moors and then a week in the Dales. We're really looking forward to getting up there again. Lots of good walking and Black Sheep bitter! :D

If you get trouble in the future, just start a new topic on the forum and post a HijackThis log. Always give details of the problem. Hopefully, you won't need to do this.

Best wishes,
'beynac'.
