Runaway Popups

Unread postby hoople » July 16th, 2005, 11:36 pm

I have run Spybot and Adeware for several days. Wild tangent and Abetterinternet show up and I remove them but they show up again in a day or so. I still get popups rather frequently. My HighJackThis log is posted below. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

hoople,

Print this out or make a notepad file, since you will not have Internet Access thru some of this fix.
This is a bit long, but I see you may do some programming, so I think you can deal with it OK. If anything doesn't work, just make a note for your next post and proceed to the next step.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and install CCleaner from here.
Don't run CCleaner yet.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Stop Processes Prior to Deletion
Close ALL open windows. Use Ctrl-Alt-Delete together to bring up the task manager.
Under the processes tab, if it is visible, check the box 'Show processes from all users'.
One at a time, highlight each of these that are listed and "End Process":

C:\WINDOWS\KOKBENC.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\HEQWDLL.EXE

If necessary, use Ctrl-Alt-Delete together to bring up the task manager again after each one is done, to be sure the entry is gone.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. If the opening screen shows, choose None of the above, just start the program.
Click Scan. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8DA5457F-A8AA-4CCF-A842-70E6FD274094} - C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\WINTOOLS\WTOOLST.DLL (disabled by BHODemon)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {016235BE-59D4-4CEB-ADD5-E2378282A1D9} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\APRPS\PLG0\CXTPLS.DLL (disabled by BHODemon)
O2 - BHO: RsyncHlpr Class - {16B238D5-80DE-47CE-8F17-B3ECE2C2248D} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RSYNCMON.DLL (file missing)
O2 - BHO: VBRunDLL Class - {197B8CA4-E215-46DD-8F33-E0544A80E5C4} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VBRUNDLL.DLL (disabled by BHODemon)
O2 - BHO: RichEditor Class - {F79A2C4B-8776-4ED7-8B2F-4786A4A3500A} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RICHEDTR.DLL (disabled by BHODemon)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KOKBENC] C:\WINDOWS\KOKBENC.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HEQWDLL] C:\WINDOWS\HEQWDLL.EXE
O18 - Filter: text/html - {8293D547-38DD-4325-B35A-F1817EDFA5FC} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\CAS\CLIENT\CASMF.DLL

Make sure all other windows except HJT are closed, and Click Fix Checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Start Your Computer in Safe Mode.
Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly as the machine boots, until a menu shows up. Choose Safe Mode from the list. In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Extra instructions are here if you need them.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Unregister dlls for removal.
Go to Start, Run OR Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt. Enter or paste each of the following lines in turn, followed by <Enter> .

regsvr32 /u CASMF.DLL
regsvr32 /u WTOOLST.DLL
regsvr32 /u CXTPLS.DLL
regsvr32 /u RSYNCMON.DLL
regsvr32 /u VBRUNDLL.DLL
regsvr32 /u RICHEDTR.DLL

It's OK if any are not found, or 'error' out. All but the first one may have been disabled already.
-----------------------------------------------------------
File and Folder Deletion.
In Windows Explorer, navigate to these files. Make sure you can see all files in the system folders. Use find (F3) if necessary; then Delete the files, if present:

C:\WINDOWS\KOKBENC.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\HEQWDLL.EXE
C:\PROGRAM FILES\CAS\CLIENT\CASMF.DLL

Delete the following files also. If not found in these locations, do a search (F3) to see if they exist. Delete if found.
C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\WINTOOLS\WTOOLST.DLL
C:\PROGRAM FILES\APRPS\PLG0\CXTPLS.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RSYNCMON.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VBRUNDLL.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RICHEDTR.DLL

If you have any problem deleting a file, right click the file and check Properties to see if it's read-only. Uncheck the read-only box, click Apply and OK. Then retry Delete.
Note the name and location of any file you cannot delete.
Find and Delete these folders, if present:

C:\PROGRAM FILES\CAS
C:\PROGRAM FILES\CAsStub
C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\WINTOOLS\
C:\PROGRAM FILES\APRPS\

Note any folder you cannot delete.
You may have to delete all the underlying files and folders before a target folder can be deleted.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Run CCleaner. Choose the Windows tab. Check everything EXCEPT be sure the Advanced part of the menu is all Unchecked. Choose Run Cleaner. This process could take a while. When cleaning is finished, click Exit.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HJT Log
Reboot your computer.
Start HijackThis. If the opening screen shows, choose None of the above, just start the program.
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.

Thanks you for your assistance. I was finally able to get to your instructions.

I was able complete all of them but the part on Unregister dlls for removal. I did start, Run but each time I received a Load Libray ("file name") failed error message.

The following files were not found:

WTOOLST.DLL
RSYNCOM.DLL
VBRUNDLL.DLL
RICHEDTR.DLL

There were files RICDED, RICHED20, RICHED32 but I did not delete them.

The WINTOOLS folder was also not present.

I ran HijackThis and the new log is below.

I also did not get any popups when I went on to the internet.

I would like to let you know that I appreciated your clear and concise directions which were very easy to follow.

Thanks again and looking forward to your response.

hoople,
Good job! Your log looks clean.
Allow me to make a suggestion on a couple of things you can do to increase your protection.
None of them use any significant resources.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install a HOSTS File
Available from here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
This will block access to thousands of malicious websites. If you use a proxy server or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added 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, clickEnable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
I also would suggest you download CodeStuff Starter from here: http://members.lycos.co.uk/codestuff/
It will allow you to trim down the number of programs at startup, an important issue with Win98 SE.
Set it so it does not run itself at startup, but call it from Start, Programs.
Delete does not remove programs, just the startup selections.

Keep all your security programs updated, so you will be prepared when new malware is released.

Thanks again. I shall follow your suggestions. I have two teenagers on a three computer network so who knows what all they are downloading.

Great site and thanks to all for your efforts.
