Spybot keeps finding and removing stuff,some of which are AdRevolver,Advertising.com, Fast Click, and Tag a Saurus.
I have things coming up in history like b.whataboutadog.com, whataboutrabbit,forgetyourtroubles.com and other yucky weird entries.
The whatabouta... stuff comes up in the log file and I hit fix but it comes back in a little while.
AdAware found Adware and Malware and couldn't remove everything.Whats going on???? :(

Hi patty s,
-----------------------------------------------------------
YOU HAVE NO ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM
Download just one of these free anti-virus programs, update it and run a full scan. Have it fix anything it finds.
*Grisoft AVG from here : http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1
*AntiVir Free from here : http://www.free-av.com/
*Avast Home Edition from here : http://www.avast.com/eng/down_home.html
-----------------------------------------------------------
We need to rename HijackThis.exe to reveal.exe
Use My Computer (Windows Explorer) to go to the HiJackThis folder
In your case, the HiJackThis folder is: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\
(double click C:, then double click Program Files, double click Trend Micro, then double click the HijackThis folder)
In the top menu, click View, Details
Right button-click on the file named HijackThis.exe and select Rename.
Type in the new filename as reveal.exe
Hit <Enter> and close MyComputer
-----------------------------------------------------------
You undoubtedly have a downloader trojan called Downloader.Agent.awf or Downloader.Agent.ayy.
This trojan replaces legitimate files that are common on most computers with an infected file. It then moves the legitimate file to a "bak" or backup folder.
Please follow the directions below to run FindAWF so we can identify the files that have been infected along with the backups, and then restore them.
Click here to download FindAWF.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click on the FindAWF.exe file to run it.
  • It will open a command prompt and ask you to Press any key to continue.
  • Press any key and the FindAWF tool will begin scanning your computer for the infected AWF files and the backups the trojan created.
  • It may take a few minutes to complete so be patient.
  • When it is complete, it will open a text file in notepad called AWF.txt which will automatically be saved to your desktop or to the same location as FindAWF.exe.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the AWF.txt file in your next reply.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HiJackThis Log

Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis (reveal.exe).

Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply, along with the contents of AWF.txt.

patty s,
You are doing fine.
Hopefully a couple more things and we will be done.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HiJackThis (reveal.exe). Start HijackThis.
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

O4 - Startup: .lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\msmapibx32.exe
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.whataboutadog.com
O20 - Winlogon Notify: __c00A8CF9 - C:\WINDOWS\System32\__c00A8CF9.dat (file missing)

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run ComboFix-------------------------------------------------------------
  • Open a new Notepad window (Start>All programs>accessories>notepad). Choose File, New.
  • Highlight the contents of the codebox below and press Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard
    Code: Select all
    File::
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\msmapibx32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\__c00A8CF9.dat
    
  • Paste the contents of the clipboard into the Notepad window by pressing Ctrl+V or Edit, Paste
  • Save it to your desktop as CFScript.txt
    Image
  • Now drag and drop the CFScript.txt icon onto combofix.exe as in the picture above, and follow the prompts.
  • Then post the resultant log, C:\ComboFix.txt, in your next reply.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HiJackThis Log

Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis (reveal.exe).

Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply.
So we are looking for the contents of C:\Combofix.txt and a new HiJackThis log.

patty s,
Some more work to do.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Peer to Peer File Sharing
Please note that as long as you're using any form of Peer-to-Peer networking ( Azureus, Morpheus, Limewire, etc.) and downloading files from non-documented sources, you can expect infestations of malware to occur.

When you use Peer-to-peer (P2P) programs, you are downloading software from an unknown source directly onto your computer, bypassing your Firewall and Anti-Virus software. It's hardly surprising that many of the available downloads are being used by malware purveyors as a delivery method for their infections. Further, if your P2P program is not configured correctly you may be sharing more files than you realize. See here : http://www.infoworld.com/article/07/09/06/Seattle-man-arrested-for-p-to-p-ID-theft_1.html

Even if you have one of the SAFE P2P programs, the practice of file-sharing is very UNSAFE for the health of your PC.
You may decide to continue P2P sharing, but keep in mind that this practice may be the source of major PC infections.
Better ask yourself if you and your system CD are REALLY ready to reformat your Hard Drive and Re-install Windows.

The risks of using P2P programs are described here Sourceforge webpage and in this Information Week article.
Some malware help forums are now refusing to help those who show up with infections from P2P usage.

I think you should stop using and Uninstall Limewire , but it's your decision.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Use Add/Remove Programs In Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :

Full Tilt Poker
Limewire
Ad-Aware <== we need to remove this for now because it interferes with fixing things

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into Keeping the program.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis.
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

O15 - Trusted Zone: *.whataboutadog.com

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run AVG Anti-Spyware: This is NOT the same as your AVG AntiVirus!
Download the trial version of AVG Anti-Spyware from here and install it. When the program has been installed, and you click the Finish button, AVG Anti-Spyware will open. Do not run a scan yet.

If the program does not automatically update itself during installation, or you are unsure whether it has done so, please do the following:
  • Click the Update icon at the top and under Manual Update click the Start update button.
  • The program will either update or inform you that no update was available.
  • It is essential that you get the update - keep trying until successful. (Note: If you have problems getting the update, you can download an installer for the full database from here (save it on your desktop). Once you have downloaded the installer, make sure that AVG Anti-Spyware is closed and then double-click on avgas-signatures-full-current.exe to install the database).
Please set up the program as follows:
  • Click the Shield icon at the top and under Resident shield is... click active. This should now change to inactive.
  • Click the Update icon and untick the automatic update option.
  • Click on Scanner on the toolbar.
  • Click on the Settings tab.
    • Under How to act? - make sure that Quarantine is selected.
    • Under How to scan? - All checkboxes should be ticked.
    • Under Possibly unwanted software - All checkboxes should be ticked.
    • Under Reports - Select Do not automatically generate reports. <== This is important
    • Under What to scan? - Select Scan every file.
Close all open windows.
  • Click on Scanner on the program's toolbar.
  • Click on Complete System Scan to start the scan process.
  • Let the program scan your computer.
  • When the scan has finished, follow the instructions below:
    • Make sure that Set all elements to: shows Quarantine
    • Important: Click on the Apply all Actions button (*** This must done before saving the report ***)
    • When the program has finished, it will display the message All actions have been applied.
    • Then click the Save Scan Report button.
    • Click the Save Report as button.
    • Save the report to your Desktop.
  • Right-click the AVG Tray Icon and select Exit.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HiJackThis Log

Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis (reveal.exe).

Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply, along with the AVG Anti-Spyware report..

patty s,
That's a lot better.
If it's running well, we can do a bit of cleanup, and some extra security for the future.

tell me how it's running.

Askey127,
Thank you so much! This was not as intimidating as I thought it would be, fascinating process. Your patience and knowledge are greatly appreciated.

Things are much better, I've been avoiding using the Internet since contacting you so as not to mess anything up. I am no longer getting the pop ups, which used to occur everytime I clicked anything, such as going to yahoo-p/u, go to mail-p/u, enter ID+password-p/u, etc.

I deleted limewire, and informed teenage son of its evils. I deleted Full Tilt Poker, and advised husband of same.

I will await your instruction re: Ad-Aware,firewall,spyware or whatever you advise.

patty s,
This looks long, but looks worse than it is.
A few general comments.
Most Poker sites provide unwanted side effects, but PokerStars appears to be free of malware.
I would keep AVG Anti-spyware. If you choose to pay for a subscription, good. It's not expensive. If not, it will still run, but after 30 days, you will have to do updates manually (I would say weekly at least).
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable WinXP System Restore
Disable your System Restore to remove malware files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing them. The only way to erase these files is to temporarily disable System Restore. You will lose all previous Restore points, including those likely to be infected, and a new Restore Point will be established..
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, put a Check mark in the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
If you are not prompted to reboot, do it on your own.
-----------------------------------------------------------
After the Reboot,
Enable WinXP System Restore
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, Clear the Check mark beside the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
The Disable/Re-enable System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only as a Special Case after the removal of malware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from inadvertently connecting to malware, spyware and adware sites by redirecting the connection request back to your own machine address (127.0.0.1). It is a very effective defense system. You may see a few more websites that give access errors. It means you probably shouldn't go tthere!

Be sure to disable the service "DNS Client" FIRST to allow the use of large HOSTS files without slowdowns.
If this isn't done first, the next reboot may take a VERY LONG TIME.
This is how to do it. First be sure you are signed in as a user with administrative privileges:
Stop and Disable the DNS Client Service
Go to Start, Run and type Services.msc and click OK.
Under the Extended Tab, Scroll down and find this service.
DNS Client
Right-Click on the DNS Client Service. Choose Properties
Select the General tab. Click on the Stop button.
Click the Arrow-down tab on the right-hand side at the Start-up Type box.
From the drop-down menu, click on Manual
Click the Apply tab, then click OK


Download BlueTack's HOSTS Manager here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?act=dscript&CODE=showdetails&f_id=5
Download and install the Hosts Manager first, then run it and click Download.
When it finishes, click Replace, and then Save.
You can use this manager to handle your HOSTS file download, edits, and most any other HOSTS issue.

Read an excellent instruction about HOSTS files (the Bluetack version) here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8406

There is a very detailed resource for those wanting to spend more time reading up, or to have as a reference:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8337
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can see another HOSTS file tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
and choose to download the MVPS HOSTS File instead of using the BlueTack HOSTS.
The BlueTack version (80k+ entries) is more aggressive than the mvps (11k + entries), and targets adware sites as well as more dangerous ones.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install WinPatrol - Download and Install the Free WinPatrol, and view Instructions here: http://www.winpatrol.com/winpatrol.html
- WinPatrol is an active program that drops a "Scotty Dog" icon into the system tray (right click to check/change status), allows you to monitor/edit startups, services, Browser helpers, and prompts for permission if any program tries to change your system. It also provides selective cookie management.

Once a month or so, Go To Start, Run and type cleanmgr and let it clean your C:\ drive. You can read about each cleanup item. I wouldn't do any "compress files".
You should be just fine and much better protected. You can also re-install Ad-aware if you wish, but I wouldn't consider it a necessity.

Askey127,
OK I did :
the off restore/on restore thing,
downloads spyware blaster

Bluetack host mngr

This was actually the most difficult, the Host mngr download was confusing.

patty s,
You are good to go, and should be quite safe in the Internet world, with reasonable care.

Sorry you had some trouble with the HOSTS manager instructions.
I'll do some work on my instructions there to try and improve the clarity.

Glad we could be of service to you.
