Unread postby KGRUMPY » April 9th, 2008, 9:13 pm

I am needing help with my son's laptop. I have had such good luck with the post for my computer I was hoping I would have the same for this problem. It is not running correctly. You can't accept pop ups or when you click on adrop down like here to register it blocks it. So here is a HJT log. I hope someone can help.

Hello KGRUMPY!

Could you please tell me more about the problems you are having with your sons program? Are you getting any error messages? We need bit more information before we can proceed.

Your sons computer has program called IMVu installed. It is not malware but some people have had problems with it. Just to let you know.

Using DSS

  • Please download Deckard's System Scanner from Tech Support Forum and save it to your desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.
  • Save all your work and close all opened programs.
  • Double click on dss.exe to run it. Follow the prompts.
  • When the scan is complete, two log files will be produced. The first one, main.txt, will be maximized, the second one, extra.txt, will be minimized.
  • Please post the contents of the 2 log files in your next reply.

Hello!

From your DSS log i can see that your Norton is disabled and outdated. You should enable/update it (renew subscription if necessary), or remove it and install an alternative program. Choice is yours. Underneath are instructions how to remove Norton if you choose to do that. Also you find examples of free antivirus programs. Do not have 2 antivirus programs running together.


Removing Norton

Download and save Norton Removal Tool to your desktop.

Run it to remove Norton. After this, please restart your computer.



Antivirus

Anti-virus software are programs that detect cleans and erase harmful virus files on a computer Web server or network. Unchecked virus files can unintentionally be forwarded to others including trading partners and thereby spreading infection. Because new viruses regularly emerge anti-virus software should be updated frequently. Anti-virus software can scan the computer memory and disk drives for malicious code. They can alert the user if a virus is present and will clean delete (or quarantine) infected files or directories. Please download a free anti-virus software from one these excellent vendors NOW:

1) Antivir PersonalEdition Classic- Free anti-virus software for Windows. Detects and removes more than 50000 viruses. Free support.
2) avast! 4 Home Edition - Anti-virus program for Windows. The home edition is freeware for noncommercial users.
3) AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition - Free edition of the AVG anti-virus program for Windows.

It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts and false virus alerts. If you choose to install more than one antivirus program on your computer then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.


Please ensure you have an up-to-date and active antivirus program installed before continuing.


Delete programs

  • Click Start
  • Go to Control Panel
  • Go to Add/Remove Programs
  • Find and click Remove for the following (if present):

    IMVU

NOTE: Take care when answering any questions posed by an uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into keeping the program.



CCleaner

Download CCleaner Slim from >here< and save it to your Desktop. When the file has been saved, go to your Desktop and double-click on ccsetupxxx_slim.exe
Follow the prompts to install the program.

Complete the installation then
  • Make sure that ALL browser windows are closed
  • Double-click the CCleaner shortcut on the desktop to start the program.
  • Click on the Options block on the left, then choose Cookies.
    • Under Cookies to Delete, highlight any cookies you would like to retain permanently
    • Click the right arrow > to move them to the Cookies to Keep window.
  • Go into Options > Advanced deselect/uncheck 'Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours'
  • Click Run Cleaner to run the program.
  • Caution: It is not recommended that you use the 'Registry' feature unless you are very familiar with the registry.
  • After CCleaner has completed its process, click Exit.


Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

  • Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and save it to a convenient location.
  • Double click on mbam-setup.exe to install it.
  • Before clicking the Finish button, make sure that these 2 boxes are checked (ticked):
      Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
      Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will now check for updates. If your firewall prompts, please allow it. If you can't update it, select the Update tab. Under Update Mirror, select one of the websites and click on Check for Updates.
  • Select the Scanner tab. Click on Perform full scan, then click on Scan.
  • Leave the default options as it is and click on Start Scan.
  • When done, you will be prompted. Click OK, then click on Show Results.
  • Checked (ticked) all items and click on Remove Selected.
  • After it has removed the items, Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply. You can also find the log in the Logs tab. The bottom most log is the latest.

  • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
  • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:

    + Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan select My Computer

    Image
  • Copy and paste the report in your next post.

Note: It is recommended to disable on board antivirus program and antispyware programs while performing scans so there are no conflicts and to speed up scan time.Please don't go surfing while your resident protection is disabled!Once scan is finished remember to re-enable resident antivirus protection along with whatever antispyware application you use.

I ca not run the Kaspersky scan. When I try I get a message that says Your security settings do not allow Web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer.
How do I fix this?

Hello!

Lets forget the Kaspersky scan and use Dr Web Cure it insted.

Download to the desktop:Dr.Web CureIt
  • Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan"-tab, remove the mark at "Heuristic analysis".
  • Back at the main window, mark the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
  • Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found:
    Image
    If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:
    Image
    This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if we need samples)
  • After selecting, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit.
  • Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web you saved previously in your next reply with a new hijackthis log.

I still have NO Adobe Reader, can not accept pop ups, Anything that has to do with ActiveX I can not use. Sorry if this sounds winey I am not feeling well today.


It is ok we all have bad days.



Setting up your ActiveX

Make sure that your Internet security settings are set to default values.

To set default security settings for Internet Explorer:

  • Open Internet Explorer.
  • Go to the Tools menu, then choose Internet Options.
  • Click on the Security tab.
  • Select the Internet zone, then click the Default level button (if available), then repeat for the other three zones Local intranet, Trusted sites & Restricted sites.


Setting up Pop up Blocker

To set popup blocker settings to default in Internet Explorer:

  • Click Tools
  • Click Pop-up Blocker
  • Pop-up Blocker Settings
  • Choose Medium from the Filter level: dropdown and press OK


Adobe Reader

  • Click HERE to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • Select your Windows version and click on Download. If you are using Internet Explorer, you will receive prompts. Allow the installation to be ran and it will be installed automatically for you.

No Firewall

Looking over your log it seems you don't have any evidence of a third party firewall.

As the term conveys a firewall is an extra layer of security installed onto computers which restricts access to systems from the outside world. Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders. I want you to download a free firewall NOW from one of these excellent vendors:

1) Online-Armor Free
2) Agnitum
3) Sunbelt/Kerio
4) Comodo

If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to phone home for more instructions. Simply put Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to use only one firewall at the same time.


Hello!

At this stage your machine looks to be clean of malware, so the problems you are experiencing are not likely to be malware related. I think the best and fastest solution for you is to post on a PC troubleshooting forum like the Browsers, Internet & email forum at WhatTheTech. They specialize in handling problems like this so you are certain to get expert assistance and a speedy resolution is very likely.

I'm sorry that I could not be of more help to you, and I wish you the best of luck with solving your computer problems. If you have any questions or require any other assistance please let me know.


You can get rid of the tools we used:
  • DSS (You can delete it from you desktop)
  • DR Web Cure it (You can delete it from you desktop)
  • CCleaner (I would recommed to keep this program)
  • Malwarebytes Antimalware (I would recommed to keep this program)

    This is how you can uninstall it/them:

    • Click Start
    • Go to Control Panel
    • Go to Add/Remove Programs
    • Find and click Remove for the following (if present):

      Malwarebytes Antimalware
      CCleaner

    NOTE: Take care when answering any questions posed by an uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into keeping the program.


    Please take the time to tell us what you would like to be done about the people who are behind all the problems you have had. We can only get something done about this if the people that we help, like you, are prepared to complain. We have a dedicated forum for collecting these complaints >Malware Complaints<. You need to be registered to post as, unfortunately, we were hit with too many spam posts to allow guest posting to continue. Just find your country room and register your complaint.


    Protection Programs
    Don't forget to re-enable any protection programs we disabled during your fix.

    General Security and Computer Health
    Below are some steps to follow in order to dramatically lower the chances of reinfection. You may have already implemented some of the steps below, however you should follow any steps that you have not already implemented.
    • Clear Infected System Restore Points
      • Turn System Restore off
      • On the Desktop, right click on the My Computer icon.
      • Click Properties.
      • Click the System Restore tab.
      • Check Turn off System Restore.
      • Click Apply, and then click OK.
      Restart your computer
      • Turn System Restore on
      • On the Desktop, right click on the My Computer icon.
      • Click Properties.
      • Click the System Restore tab.
      • Uncheck *Turn off System Restore*.
      • Click Apply, and then click OK.
      Note: only do this once,and not on a regular basis

      Set correct settings for files
      • 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 check Hide 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
    • Make sure that you keep your antivirus updated
      New viruses come out every minute, so it is essential that you have the latest signatures for your antivirus program to provide you with the best possible protection from malicious software.
      Note: You should only have one antivirus installed at a time. Having more than one antivirus program installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as impairing the performance of your PC.
    • Install and use a firewall with outbound protection
      The Windows firewall only monitors incoming traffic, NOT outgoing. Using a software firewall in its default configuration to replace the Windows firewall greatly reduces the risk of your computer being hacked. Make sure your firewall is always enabled while your computer is connected to the internet.
      Note: You should only have one firewall installed at a time. Having more than one firewall installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as seriously impairing the performance of your PC.
    • Security Updates for Windows, Internet Explorer & Microsoft Office
      Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch so that after the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your PC. Keeping up with these patches will help to prevent malicious software being installed on your PC. Ensure you are registered for Windows updates via Start > right-click on My Computer > Properties > Automatic Updates tab or visit the Microsoft Update site on a regular basis.
      Note: The update process uses ActiveX, so you will need to use internet explorer for it and allow the ActiveX control to install.
    • Update Non-Microsoft Programs
      Microsoft isn't the only company whose products can contain security vulnerabilities. To check whether other programs running on your PC are in need of an update, you can use the Secunia Software Inspector - I suggest that you run it at least once a month.
    • Make Internet Explorer More Secure
      • 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
      • 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.

      Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs, and the updating of them on a regular basis:
    • WinPatrol
      As a robust security monitor, WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. For more information, please visit HERE.
    • SpywareBlaster
      SpywareBlaster sets killbits in the registry to prevent known malicious ActiveX controls from installing on your computer.
      If you don't know what ActiveX controls are, see HERE. You can download SpywareBlaster from HERE.
    • Spybot Search & Destroy
      Instructions are located HERE. Make sure you update, reimmunize and scan regularly.
    • Hosts File
      For added protection you may also like to add a host file. A simple explanation of what a Hosts file does is HERE and for more information regarding host files read HERE.
    • Finally I am trying to make one point very clear. It is absolutely essential to keep all of your security programs up to date

Also please read this great article by Tony Klein So How Did I Get Infected In First Place

I'd be grateful if you could reply to this post so that I know you have read it and, if you've no other questions, the thread can be closed.

Happy surfing and stay clean!
