Windows cannot find shell

Unread postby kelee64 » December 2nd, 2007, 12:42 pm

Whenever I boot my computer I have a warning box come up saying " Windows cannot find C:Windows\shell.exe Program not found.... Internet Explorer tries to pop up off and on and the warning box pops up. I have run numerous scanning and removal programs and removed trojans and malware but it keeps coming up. Here is my Hijackthis logfile. Thanks for any help.

Hi kelee64,

Welcome to Malware Removal Forums!! My name is markamus, and I will be helping you with your HJT log. Please take note of the following while we are working together:
  • I will working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
As I am still in training, everything that I post to you, must be checked by an Admin or Moderator. Thus, there may be a tiny bit of a delay between posts, but it shouldn't be too long.

I am currently reviewing your log and will have a reply shortly.

Thanks,

markamus

Hi kelee64,

Using Windows Explorer
    (Right click on "Start," select "Explore," and you will see the "tree' of file folders in the left side of the window. Click on the "+" next to any folder name to expand its contents)
Open The C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis folder. Locate the HijackThis.exe file. Rt click that file and Select Rename ->> Rename it H.exe.
Then Rerun H.exe (Formerly Hijackthis) and post a fresh log.

Thanks,

markamus

Hi kelee64,

1. Download this file - combofix.exe and save it to your Desktop.
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Please include the Combofix log along with a fresh HijackThis log in your next reply.

Thanks,

markamus

Re: Windows cannot find shell

Unread postby markamus » December 6th, 2007, 2:02 pm

Hi kelee64,

Before we start please go to TrojanHunter Guard in the lower right corner of your screen. It is a lightblue icon with a magnifying glass that can be difficult to see but the handle is red. Right click it and select settings. Uncheck "Load at startup" and "Enabled". Make sure that the program, TrojanHunter itself, is also closed/not running.

Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the box into the window:

Code: Select all
File::
C:\WINDOWS\system32\pqggusfo.ini
C:\WINDOWS\system32\SETBF.tmp
C:\WINDOWS\002463_.tmp
C:\WINDOWS\iun6002.exe
C:\wndnlrz.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wiwcypju.ini
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mcrh.tmp



Folder::
C:\Program Files\E404 Helper
C:\WINDOWS\bWU


Registry::
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\~\Browser Helper Objects\{CD13C6F8-BE45-4E6A-8AA0-697DD401BCC4}]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"e84bc871"=-




Save it to your desktop as CFScript.txt

Refering to the picture below, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe
Image
This will let ComboFix run again.
Restart if you have to.
Save the produced logfile to your desktop.

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Open HJT by navigating to your HijackThis folder and double clicking on HijackThis.exe. Select the second button entitled "Do a system scan only".
Now select the followng entries by placing a tick in the left hand check box


R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [e84bc871] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\ujpycwiw.dll",b
O16 - DPF: {50BD5CDA-4BA8-4048-8FAA-763F222E41D8} (xpreload.xpreloader) - ms-its:mhtml:file://c:\\nores.mht!http://adxrnet.net/code/chm/xpre.chm::/xpreload.ocx

Once you have selected all entries, close all running programs then click once on the "fix checked" button to clear the entries from your log.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next, reboot your PC. Please post back with the new Combofix log along with a fresh HijackThis log, along with a description of how the PC is running.

Thanks,

The file "O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [e84bc871] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\ujpycwiw.dll",b , did not show up on my scan and when I did everything you listed and rebooted my pc froze on the reboot. I had to repeat the process 3 times but it finally cycled through ok. I haven't had the shell warning come up lately or IE popping up in the middle of a game. Here are the logs..

Hi kelee64,

Your Combofix log is incomplete as posted. Please post the entire contents of the latest combofix scan (it will be in your C:\ drive, probably named Combofix2.txt.) If there are more, choose the latest one. When it is open, select the entire contents (Ctrl + A), copy them (Ctrl + C), and paste them (Ctrl + V) back here as a reply to this post.

Thanks,

Re: Windows cannot find shell

Unread postby markamus » December 19th, 2007, 12:36 pm

Well congrats, it appears your system is all clean. Are you still noticing any problems? If not, it's time to secure your system to prevent against further intrusions.


THESE STEPS ARE VERY IMPORTANT

Let's reset system restore
Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected. Please note you need Administrator Access to do clean the restore points.

1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
NOTE: only do this ONCE,NOT on a regular basis

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


UPDATING WINDOWS AND INTERNET EXPLORER

IMPORTANT: You Need to Update Windows and Internet Explorer to protect your computer from the malware that is around on the Internet. Please go to the windows update site to get the critical updates.

If you are running Microsoft Office, or any portion thereof, go to the Microsoft's Office Update site and make sure you have at least all the critical updates installed (Free) Microsoft Office Update.

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
Change the allow paste operations via script to Disable
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 are recommended third party programs that are designed to keep your computer clean. A link as well as a brief description is included with each item.

  • Download Adaware
    Adaware is a free program. It scans for known spyware on your computer. These scans should be run at least once every two weeks. For more information, see this tutorial
    The program is available for download here
  • Download SpywareBlaster
    Spyware blaster is a program that stops known malicious activex controls from installing on your computer. It works by changing settings in your registry. It makes "kill bits" in the registry, so that certain activex controls can't install.
    If you don't know what activex controls are, see here
    You can download SpywareBlaster here here
  • Download and install SiteHound by Firetrust for protection against malicious websites.

    Pick the version that matches your browser. Once the download is complete, double-click the install icon and follow the prompts of the install wizard.
  • hosts file:
    • Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them.
    • In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages.
    • We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages.
    • However, it can slow down certain computers.
    • This is why using a hosts file is optional!!
    Download it here. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial here
    If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    1. Click the start button (at the lower left hand corner of your screen)
    2. Click run
    3. In the dialog box, type services.msc
    4. hit enter, then locate dns client
    5. Highlight it, then double-click it.
    6. On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    7. Click ok


  • Get Anti Virus Software and keep it updated - It is imperative that you have Anti virus software and that you update it at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. See here to choose one
  • 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. For more info, check this webpage out.
    See here to choose one


Just a final reminder for you. I am trying to stress these two points.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!! Make sure you do this about every 1-2 weeks.
Make sure all of your security programs are up to date.
Run the spybot and adaware regularly. (Once or twice a week minimum.)
Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

To keep your system more secure and prevent future re-infections, please read Tony Klein's article So how did I get infected in the first place?

Once again, please post and tell me how things are going with your system... problems etc.

Have a great day,
