Help - Hijackthis log

Unread postby hcrbnk » September 27th, 2008, 11:38 am

Hello

I've been having real problems with my laptop over the past couple of days and I'm beginning to wonder if my laptop has been infected. Problems include;

- Not being able to access outlook
- Not being able to access the internet
- Cannot access Mcafee Internet Security
- Cannot manage user accounts in control panel

I keep getting errors when I try to access the programs / applications. For example, Mcafee states that "Mcafee MISP Shell has encountered a problem and needs to close."

Very frustrating - my hijackthis log is detailed below - any help much appreciated!

Welcome to the Malware removal Forums. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Problems include;

- Not being able to access outlook
- Not being able to access the internet
- Cannot access Mcafee Internet Security
- Cannot manage user accounts in control panel

I keep getting errors when I try to access the programs / applications. For example, Mcafee states that "Mcafee MISP Shell has encountered a problem and needs to close."

The problems with McAfee could be due to an incompatible program. Please check the list of incompatible programs and follow the instructions for Removing incompatible third party applications (2007).

Another recommendation would be to uninstall McAfee and reinstall it. (Make sure you are not on the Internet when you do this.)

I do not see any obvious signs of malware. You have a lot of programs in your startup list. See Optional Fixes in Step 9 below. I have some suggestions for general cleaning of your computer.

You may want to print this page. Make sure to work through the fixes in the order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Step 1

I noticed that you have some programs that need to be updated.

Your Java Runtime Environment is out of date.
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove the older versions of Java Runtime Environment..
  • Close any programs you may have running, ESPECIALLY your web browser
  • Click Start > Control Panel.
  • Click Add/Remove Programs.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove all versions of Java.
  • Reboot your computer after all Java components are removed.
Please download the latest Java Runtime Environment.
  • Scroll down to where it says Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7. The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications.
  • Click the Download button to the right. When a new window opens, you will see
    NOTE: This page offers files for different platforms - please be sure to download the proper file(s) for your platform.
    Required: You must accept the license agreement to download the product.
  • Click to place a check mark by Accept License Agreement.
  • Make the selection corresponding to your computer platform. For Windows, click on Windows Offline Installation, Multi-languagelink to download. Save it to your desktop.
  • On your desktop, double-click on jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
After you have installed the Java software on your computer, you must restart your browser. You can verify that Java Runtime Environment (RTE) has been installed correctly by clicking on the Verify Installation button on the Welcome To Java and Verify Installation page.

Step 2

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.
  1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
  2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
  3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
  4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
  5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
  6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
When you have completed the scans, if you get a report of files that can’t be cleaned / deleted, make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself. Please post that list in your next reply.

Step 3

Please download Spybot-S&D.
Please check this link, Using Spybot- Search and Destroy To Remove Spyware From Your Computer, for instructions on how to download, install and use Spybot-S&D. Run this program as soon as possible.

Step 4

I recommend using Spyware Blaster.
Please download SpywareBlaster. SpywareBlaster helps to:
  1. Prevent the installation of Active X-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
  2. Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
  3. Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.
Please see Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware, Hijackers, and Malware for instructions on how to download, install, and use SpywareBlaster.

Step 5

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is FREEWARE, however you may upgrade to the PRO version which contains realtime protection, scheduled scanning and updating.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM). Alternate download link
  2. Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  3. When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  4. When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  5. Click Finish.
  6. MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  7. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from the Malware Bytes Web site. Scroll down the page until you see Latest Database; click Download from GT500.org
  8. Double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  9. On the Scanner tab, make sure the Perform Quick Scan option is selected.
  10. Click on the Scan button.
  11. If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  12. The scan will begin and Scan in progress will show at the top. It may take some time to complete; please be patient.
  13. When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully.
  14. At the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  15. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  16. When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  17. The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  18. Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
  19. Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
Step 6

  1. Please download SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) - SUPERAntiSpyware Free Version For Home Users
  2. Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
  3. It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
  4. Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
  5. Click the Scanning Control tab.
  6. Under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked:
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
    • Please leave the others unchecked.
  7. Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
  8. On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software, click Scan your computer.
  9. On the left, check C:\Fixed Drive.
  10. On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
  11. Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  12. After the scan is complete, a summary box will appear. Click OK.
  13. Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
  14. It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
  15. To retrieve the removal information, please do the following:
    • After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
    • Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
    • Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose Copy.
    • Click Close and Close again to exit the program.
  16. Please paste that information with a new HijackThis log.
Step 7

The ATF-Cleaner program is for XP and Windows 2000 only.

Step 8

Now we will address the HijackThis fixes.

Please run HijackThis and click Scan. Place checks next to the following entries (make sure not to miss any):

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,ShellNext = http://192.168.100.1/config.html

Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click Fix Checked to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Step 9

Optional Fixes is the name that we use for fixes for unnecessary programs that load during startup and run in the background. These programs are not required to start automatically as you can start them manually if you need them. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Your computer may be sluggish due to the many programs loading during startup and running in the background that are not necessary. Windows has a facility for starting programs at startup time. Some of these programs are required for your computer and the applications installed on it to run correctly. A good example of such a program is a virus-checking application that must always run, constantly checking for and isolating or removing files with viruses. Other such programs are not strictly required, or are optional. In some cases, you can gain significant performance enhancements by disabling the automatic startup of these programs. In many cases, the functionality offered by the programs is still available by starting the programs manually by, for example, starting the program from the Windows Start->Programs menu. Media players and instant messaging programs often fall into this category. In fact, it is common for many modern software applications, when installed, to add programs at startup that add items to the system tray or shortcut (context) menus in Windows Explorer to provide quick access to the features and functions of these applications. While they may be useful, they do increase boot time and consume system resources. It is advised that you disable these programs so that they do not take up necessary resources or slow the boot time.

Other than ScanRegistry, SystemTray, StateMgr, antivirus program entries, and firewall program entries, very few others need to load and run.

If you decide that you want to stop the Optional Fixes in your startup, let me know and I will give you a list with instructions. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Step 10

Let’s run ATF-Cleaner to ensure no malware is hiding in temporary folders and for general computer cleanup to free space on your computer.

Step 11

Please run HijackThis in Normal Mode and post:

  1. the list of file names and locations for any files that cannot be cleaned / deleted that were reported after you completed the online scans.
  2. the log from MalwareBytes
  3. the log from SUPERAntiSpyware
  4. a new HijackThis log
Please advise me of any problems you still have.

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
