Hello, and welcome to the forum.

My name is Simon V., and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

Step 1

Open HijackThis, perform a scan and put a check next to the following items (if present):

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [hfjqctkz] C:\WINDOWS1\system32\hfjqctkz.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [ztXXwu8LZM] C:\WINDOWS1\fypstcxu.exe


Close all programs except HijackThis and click on Fix checked.

Step 2

Please download OTMoveIt2.exe by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.

  • Double click on OTMoveIt2.exe to run it.
  • Untick the option to Unregister Dll's and Ocx's.
  • Select the contents of the below codebox, then press Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard.

    Code: Select all
    C:\WINDOWS1\system32\hfjqctkz.exe

  • In OTMoveIt right-click on the box labelled Paste Standard List of Files/Folders to Move and click Paste (1).
  • Click on MoveIt! (2).
  • Click on Exit (3).
  • If it asks you to reboot allow that.

Please refer to this picture for using OTMoveIt -

Image

A log will be produced at C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles\date_time.log, where date_time are numbers.

Step 3

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location.
  • You can also access the log by doing the following:

    • Click on the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware icon to launch the program.
    • Click on the Logs tab.
    • Click on the log at the bottom of those listed to highlight it.
    • Click Open.

Step 4

Your Java software is out of date. Follow these instructions to update it:

  • Go to Start and click on Control Panel, then double-click on Add or Remove Programs.
  • Search for previously installed versions of Java (J2SE Runtime Environment), and remove them. It should have this icon next to it: Image
  • Then download and install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 5.

Step 5

In your next reply, please post:

  • the OTMoveIt log
  • the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log
  • a new HijackThis log

You can try this -

Please download FixPolicies (by Bill Castner) and save it to your desktop.

  • Double click on FixPolicies.exe to run it.
  • Click on Install. It will create a folder named FixPolicies on your desktop.
  • Open the FixPolicies folder.
  • Double click on Fix_policies.cmd to run it. Command Prompt will open and close quickly; this is normal.

Let me know whether that resolved it.

You're welcome :) Here are some tips to keep your computer clean in the future:

Please open OTMoveIt2.

  • Click on the CleanUp! button. If your Firewall gives a warning about OTMoveIt wanting to download a file, allow it.
  • Answer Yes to the prompt.
  • The program will ask for a reboot. Answer Yes.

Use an Anti-Virus Program - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus program running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

Here are a few (free) anti-virus programs, please download and install one of them:


Disable and Enable System Restore - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

Step 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

Step 2: Reboot your computer.

Step 3: Turn on System Restore:

  • On the desktop, right-click My Computer
  • Click Properties
  • Click the System Restore tab
  • Uncheck Turn off System Restore
  • Click Apply, and then click OK

Note: Only do this once, NOT on a regular basis!

Make your Internet Explorer More Secure

If you are using Internet Explorer 7, please read and follow the recommendations at this site - http://surfthenetsafely.com/ieseczone8.htm

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, please read and follow the following recommendations -

  • 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 Initialise 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.
    • 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.

Use a Firewall - Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. The Windows firewall isn't sufficient as it only monitors incoming connections.

Here are a few (free) firewalls, please download and install one of them:


Visit Microsoft's Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://update.microsoft.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.

Install WinPatrol - An excellent startup manager, notifies you if programs are added to startup, allows delayed startup, ... A must have! An installation guide can be found here: http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html

Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - You should scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would with your anti-virus software. A tutorial on installing and using this product can be found here (do not install TeaTimer): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutoria ... ial43.html

Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A tutorial can be found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutoria ... ial49.html

Install IE-Spyad - IE-Spyad places more than 4000 dubious websites and domains in the IE Restricted list. This severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites. A tutorial on installing this product can be found here: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/uiuc/resource.htm#IESPYAD

Update All Your Security Programs Regularly - Make sure you update all your security programs (Anti-Virus, Firewall, Anti-Spyware) regularly (once a weak, at least). Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

You can also read this excellent article by TonyKlein: So how did I get infected in the first place?

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