Sorry for having you go through all these scans but so far we have not found what is giving you those PartyPoker popups.


Please download Navilog1 by IL-MAFIOSO: http://perso.orange.fr/il.mafioso/Navifix/Navilog1.zip
  • Extract its contents to the desktop.
  • Double click on navilog1.exe to install it on your computer.
  • When the installation is complete, the tool will start automatically.
  • If it doesn't start automatically, please double click on Navilog1 shortcut on your desktop to run it.
  • Press E for English from the language Menu.
  • Type 1 in the next Menu to select Search and press Enter.
  • Wait for the Scan to finish (It may take a reasonable amount of time)
  • Press any key as requested .
  • A new document will be produced: fixnavi.txt.
  • Please copy/paste the contents of this report in your next reply.
The report is also saved in the root of the directory, "%SystemDrive%\fixnavi.txt". (usually C:\fixnavi.txt)

Note:Process.exe[/b] is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Panda, Nod32, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes so removal of infected files can be performed. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user or even automatically delete the file. If your antivirus automatically removes process.exe, you will have to temporarily disable it and then reinstall Navilog. For more information refer to: http://www.beyondlogic.org/consulting/p ... ssutil.htm


Please download Icesword v.1.20 from http://www.majorgeeks.com/Icesword_d5199.html

Right click the file IceSword120_en.zip and. Now click Extract here. It will create a new folder called IceSword120_en

Once IceSword is extracted, with all browser and Explorer windows closed, open the folder and run IceSword

  • Once IceSword is open, click the Win32 Service Function on the left Menu Bar
    If any red entries are found, click the blue Log Tab at the top of the screen and save the log to a place where you can easily find it with the name ISservice-list.txt.
  • Now, Click IceSword's Process Function on the left Menu Bar
    If any red entries are found, click the blue Log tab at the top of the screen and save the log to a place where you can easily find it with the name ISprocesslist.txt.
    Please post ISservicelist.text and/or ISprocesslist.txt in your next post.


Post Fixnavi.txt and ISservicelist.txt and/or ISprocesslist.txt if either is showing anything in red.

Nothing in red from Icesword.

I haven't had partypoker for a few days now but my pc isn't as quick as it was a few weeks back???

Could it be windows defender error be related?

Thanks for all your help so far though.

It is anybody's guess what caused the Windows Defender error. It could have been one of the scans or it could have been something else. From what I could see from the Microsoft post it seems to happen every so often.

Your computer shows up clean in every scan so far.

I will ask my peers if anyone has any ideas.

Missed a simple step earlier in the process. :oops:

Let's take care of it and at the same time get some housekeeping tasks done:

Press Control-Alt-Del to enter the Task Manager.

Click on the Processes tab and end the following processes:

C:\Program Files\ewido anti-malware\ewidoctrl.exe
C:\PROGRA~1\BILLPS~1\WINPAT~1\winpatrol.exe
C:\Program Files\SpywareGuard\sgmain.exe
C:\Program Files\SpywareGuard\sgbhp.exe

Exit the Task Manager when finished.


Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.fhm.com

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.


Go to Start > All Programs > Winpatrol. Click the Scottie. That will restart Winpatrol.


Download the latest Java from here.

Scroll down to Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u2 and click on Download. Click on Accept License Agreement, the page will refresh.

Click on Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language and save it.

Do not run it yet.


You are using an older vulnerable version of Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0. Please go here http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/reader/ to download Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.

Adobe 8 is a large program and if you prefer a smaller program you can get Foxit 2.0 instead from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php

Whichever program you decide on do not install it yet.


  1. Go to Start > Control Panel. Double click on Add/Remove Programs.
  2. Locate J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10 and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it.
    Repeat for
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9
    Adobe Reader 6.0
    .
  3. Once done, close Add/Remove Programs and Control Panel.
  4. Restart the computer

Install the latest version of Java that you downloaded earlier.


Once Java is installed, install whichevr of Adobe Reader or Foxit that you've downloaded earlier.


Restart the computer.


Do a new HijackThis scan and post the log.

Hi. Can I ask how a site like fhm.com is not trusted? This is the site of the magazine and yes does contain adult images isn't what I would class as pornographic.

Saying that it should not be in the trusted zone does not mean that you do not trust it the same way that you trust most other sites that you know are OK. It is not that it is not trusted in the meaning that it is dangerous but it should not be in the trusted zone of Internet Explorer. There are very few sites that belong there. Any site in that zone is treated as absolutely trustworthy the same way as a computer on your own network would be treated. Not a good idea for any outsider. We normally recommend to remove all sites from this zone except if there are special reasons for them being there. One exsample of a site that belons in that zone is the internal site for your job.

Besides the question about it being in the trusted zone fhm.com is questionable as it is on the block-lists of some of the sites that keep block-lists.


How is your computer behaving now.


As I can not find anything in the logs I think it is time to do some cleanup.


You should remove the following tools that you downloaded during the cleanup. They are not suitable for day to day use and can be dangerous if misused.

Delete the following folders (most of them are probably on your desktop.):
IceSword120_en
WinPFind3u folder
Combofix

C:\Program Files\navilog1

and the following files
C:\ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt (if it exists)
C:\ComboFix.txt
and any other files in C:\ that start with Combofix.

Also delete logs that you have on your desktop and that are the result of the scans we ran. They are not dangerous but they clutter up your desktop.


Set correct settings for files that should be hidden in Windows XP
  • Click Start > My Computer > Tools menu (at top of page) > Folder Options > View tab.
  • Under "Hidden files and folders" if necessary select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • If unchecked please checkHide protected operating system files (Recommended)
  • If necessary check "Display content of system folders"
  • If necessary Uncheck Hide file extensions for known file types.
  • Click OK


Your computer now seems to be clean. Therefore please

  1. Clean out Temporary Files etc. Download System Security Suite from http://www.igorshpak.net/software/3ssetup104.zip. Extract it from the zip file into a folder and double click on sss.exe. Please check the following check-boxes under the Items to Clear tab:
    1. Under Internet Explorer
      • History
      • Temporary Files
    2. Under My Computer
      • Recycle Bin
      • Run (Menu)
      • Search History
      • Temporary Files
    Next click 'Clear Selected Items'. Reboot when prompted. It is a good idea to do this every few weeks as a lot of junk collects there over time.

  2. if you are using Intrnet Explorer v. 6
    Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.
      1. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      2. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      3. Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      4. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      5. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      6. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      7. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      8. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    5. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
    There are good reasons to upgrade to Internet Explorer v. 7. Do look into this. You can find a lot of information about it on Microsofts website.
  3. Use an Anti Virus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.
  4. Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Once a day is a good idea). If you do not update your anti virus software it will not be able to catch new variants that come out.
  5. Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. Windows Firewall is not recomended.
    Be restrictive with granting access to the internet. If you are unsure if the program really needs the access, test it by denying the access and see if this has any negative effects. If not, make the block permanent.
  6. Never run two Antivirus programs or two Firewalls at the same time. They can interfere with each other and cause problems.
  7. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently or better yet set computer for automatic updates.
  8. Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
  9. Read and follow the sugestions given at this web site by Miekiemoes http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miek ... ntion.html that will give you more information on some of the points above.

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Let me know if there are any problems still.


If I have been able to help you I am happy. :) E
