2. Click "Scan".
3. Highlight the text in the 'virus log information' pane and use the Ctrl + C keys to copy the highlighted text.
4. When it completes, post back the results from the 'Virus log information' pane.

O18 - Protocol: ms-help - {314111C7-A502-11D2-BBCA-00C04F8EC294} - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft

Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

My appologies for the delay in getting the hijacktjis l;og to you but I must have not followed your directions closely enuff and after the first posting I went to find the two filews you mentioned on HJK log :

Both were there and i fixed them as per your suggestion:

O16 - DPF: {15589FA1-C456-11CE-BF01-000000000000} -

O18 - Protocol: ms-help - {314111C7-A502-11D2-BBCA-00C04F8EC294} - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft

Afterwards I did locate the file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\mshtml.dll

and deleted it while in safe mode. After the reboot I crashed the entire system and just finished an entire clean install. I have provided both logs again after my crash and I am hoping that this virus or dialer or whatever I have gotten has been caught :) Again, thank your assistance!

Hello Ric,

Sorry about your system crashing.

Please download RegScan from http://tomcoyote.org/rand1038/vbscript/RegScan.zip.
Within RegScan.zip you will find the file regscan.vbs
You may have to allow this script to run or disable Microsoft anti-spyware again in order for it to run.
A window will open titled RegFinder.vbs and you will see place to input search terms.
Please enter the search terms:
Limewire,RedV
After the search has completed a window titled Results.txt will open.
Please copy the results and post(reply) back.

Your hijackthis version on the second hijackthis log is out-of-date. Please download the current version from http://downloads.malwareremoval.com/hijackthis_sfx.exe and post a new hijackthis log.

Hello Ric,

Please be sure you are logged on as Administrator.
Please go to http://bragart.org/Ricfix.zip and save the file.
This file contains a registry script file which will delete the entries with redv in them.
Within the zip file is the file Ricfix.reg.
You will have to allow the script to run or may have to disable anti-spyware in order to allow this script to run.
Just double-click the Ricfix.reg

Then please do the following step again to see if we eliminated the redv entries.
Please download RegScan from http://tomcoyote.org/rand1038/vbscript/RegScan.zip.
Within RegScan.zip you will find the file regscan.vbs
You may have to allow this script to run or disable Microsoft anti-spyware again in order for it to run.
A window will open titled RegFinder.vbs and you will see place to input search terms.
Please enter the search terms:
Limewire,RedV (be sure to use comma to separate the items)
After the search has completed a window titled Results.txt will open.
Please copy the results and post(reply) back.

Problems with recent directions

Unread postby RicBoltz » August 26th, 2005, 2:31 am

I am using XP Home Edition - so started in safe mode to log on as administrator as suggested.
I had already downloaded the ricfix.zip and saved it to shared folders as i am not able to download in safe mode (or am I? )
opened zip to find ricfix.reg. I double clicked it and received a couple error messages which I clicked thru : first message:

are you sure you want to add the information in c:\documents and settings\administrator\local settings\temp\ricfix.reg to the registry?
I clicked yes and nothing happened....

antispyware was disabled Now I believe i have this ricfix.reg added a few places in my registry and afraid to pursue without guidance. I have included the regscan log angain and hjt log after attempting to work with the ricfix.reg

Maybe i downloaded the ricfix.reg file to a wrong place? not sure

Hello Ric
Your hijackthis log looks fine now. I will be working on a registry fix to include the Limewire entry so don't think I have abandoned you! I will get back to you.

Hello Ric,

I see the MWAV showed the following in the log:
Object "Limewire Spyware/Adware" found in File System! Action Taken: No Action Taken.
Object "cws.therealsearch Spyware/Adware" found in File System! Action Taken: No Action Taken.

We got rid of the RedV entry.

Let’s run another scan which will clean bad files and see what it finds.

When running an Ewido scan no windows or programs should be open!. Do not use the Computer while the Ewido scan is running!

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu."
Launch ewido, there should be a big "E" icon on your desktop, double-click it.
The program will prompt you to update; click the "OK" button
The program will now go to the main screen
Update ewido:
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
On the left hand side of the main screen click update
Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed. After the updates are installed, exit ewido.
Do NOT run a scan yet.
=============================
Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
================
* Now open Ewido Security Suite
Click on scanner

* Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
* During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
* When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
* Save the report to your desktop

Close Ewido

How is your computer running now?

Scan Results

Unread postby RicBoltz » September 2nd, 2005, 6:38 pm

thank you for the suggestion of the most recent program:

I ran it as directed and the results were nothing found. I will include the most recent hjt scan below as well but does this mean the virous's that have been identified are not really viruses then?
