Hello katizoulie,

Your reports are better and better. :)

Are Regedit, and task manager ok now?
----------------------------------------------
Update Adobe Reader
Recently there have been vunerabilities detected in older versions of Adobe Reader. It is strongly suggested that you update to the current version. Adobe Reader 9.
You can download it from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
If you already have Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition installed or do not wish to have it installed UNcheck the box which says Also Download Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition.

Adobe 9 is a large program and if you prefer a smaller program you can get Foxit 2.0 instead from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php
----------------------------------------------
Run Kaspersky Online AV Scanner
Note: Internet Explorer should be used.

Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.
  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  • Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
    • Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
    • Archives
    • Mail databases
  • Click on My Computer under Scan and then put the kettle on!
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to a convenient place like your Desktop. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  • Copy and paste the report into your next reply along with a fresh HJT log and a description of how your PC is behaving.
----------------------------------------------
Also tell me if your Mcafee has a firewall or if you use Windows firewall.

Alright, everything done. Task Manager and regedit are working. The only thing abnormal I realize is the content of the "Settings" in the start menu: control panel, network connections and printer are gone from it (well, the options that are usually there). Besides that, my PC is working great. Kapersky found 2 problems though. The logs are attached! Thanks so much for sticking with it all the way to the end. You are saving a 9month pregnant woman's life here! :lol:
If my reports are okay, is there any way you could look at my husband's PC's hijack this log? :oops: Not that it has any specific problem, but it's running really slow and I was wondering if malware had anything to do with it. If you're okay with it, I'll post his log.

Hello katizoulie,

It looks a lot better, nearly to the end.

Let's fix those lines for Adobe Reader 7 which shows in your HijackThis log.
Somehow when you updated your Adobe Reader they didn't update.
----------------------------------------------
FIX HIJACKTHIS ENTRIES

Open up Hijackthis.
Click on do a system scan only.
Place a checkmark next to these lines(if still present).

O2 - BHO: Adobe PDF Reader Link Helper - {06849E9F-C8D7-4D59-B87D-784B7D6BE0B3} - C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\ActiveX\AcroIEHelper.dll
O2 - BHO: Adobe PDF Conversion Toolbar Helper - {AE7CD045-E861-484f-8273-0445EE161910} - C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Acrobat\AcroIEFavClient.dll
O3 - Toolbar: Adobe PDF - {47833539-D0C5-4125-9FA8-0819E2EAAC93} - C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Acrobat\AcroIEFavClient.dll


Then close all windows except Hijackthis and click Fix Checked
Close HijackThis.
----------------------------------------------
Empty your Recycle bin and post back a new HijackThis log.

Hello katizoulie,

Oops :( , i am sorry, i missed some lines with Adobe Acrobat 7.0

It's odd that you did update to version 9.0 and all those lines still do appear with version number 7.0

I believe they will be replaced as you use your new version of Adobe.

Hello katizoulie,

Yes HijackThis log looks very good now, very good work.
----------------------------------------------
Using Windows Explore by right-clicking the Start button and left clicking Explore navigate to and find the following Folders/Files: if found, delete the following (some may not be present after previous steps):

Folder:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0

File:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\qpicsfIr.sys

Let me know if you found and removed them.
----------------------------------------------
Also tell me if your Mcafee has a firewall or if you use Windows firewall.

Please also answer about firewall.

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0 ---------> It wouldn't let me delete it because of "Context Menu.dll" !

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\qpicsfIr.sys ---------> Wasn't there.

I am using Windows Firewall. No firewall on McAfee.

It wouldn't let me delete it because of "Context Menu.dll" !

Normally it would because we removed the Context Menu.dll lines using Hijackthis.

Please close Internet explorer and retry.

Otherwise try from Safe mode following the steps below.
----------------------------------------------
Safe Mode

Go in Safe Mode by restarting your computer, then continually tapping F8 until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

Find and remove:

Actually, why are we trying to delete Acrobat 7.0. I thought the Reader 7.0 was the problem. I would like to keep the Acrobat. Does everything else look ok now?

Hello katizoulie,

Yes everything is good!
----------------------------------------------
FIREWALL
Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. If you use the Windows Firewall you might think that's sufficient but it only controls one way of the traffic (inbound). Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. It's preferable to install one of the suggested firewalls.

FREE FIREWALLS
Tutorial about Firewalls can be found here
----------------------------------------------
Please remove FixPolicies from your desktop.
----------------------------------------------
Keep Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware update and use it often to clean your pc, it's a very nice program.
----------------------------------------------
Let's clear out the programs we've been using to clean up your computer, they are not suitable for general malware removal and could cause damage if used inappropriately.
  • Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.
----------------------------------------------
Set correct settings for files that should be hidden in Windows XP
  • 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 checkHide 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
----------------------------------------------
Congratulations you are clean! :)
Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Disable and Enable System Restore-WINDOWS XP
This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

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.
  • Reboot.
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.
This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.

Spybot Search and Destroy 1.6
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here

Install SpyWare Blaster 4.0
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com
Note 1: If you are running Windows XP SP2, you should upgrade to SP3.
Note 2: Users of Norton Internet Security 2008 and newer versions should uninstall the software before they install Service Pack 3.
The security suite can then be reinstalled afterwards.

Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"

Read some information here how to prevent Malware.

Happy safe surfing!
