TROJ_STARTPAG.RE Virus

Unread postby Frank Molland » September 6th, 2005, 7:19 am

I have recently been infected by the "TROJAN_STARTPAG.RE" virus and have tried to clear it using my AV Security set up (TREND Micro) and despite the fact that the virus has been quarantined I cant find it in the quarantine file. The first indication of infection was a complete change of my start page characteristics. Now every time I start up Trend Micro tells me its quarantined a new virus and the infected file name. I am able to delete these files but new ones are immediately found. They are usually .DLL or.dll files. I have also noted a lot of .EXE files being added to my Start up in a check of msconfig settings. Trend Micro say that PCCillin will only pick up "Viruses" and not "Hijackers" which attack internet settings. I have performed my first HighjackThis log which seems to have confirmed the above, it is shown below.

Press Fix Checked, HJT will prompt you to confirm if you would like to remove those items, select Yes.

Next, you need to locate and run AboutBuster, double click on the program then press Begin Removal

Search for and delete these files Using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\WINDOWS\pjcof.dll
c:\windows\SYSTEM\wucrtupd.exe
C:\WINDOWS\JAVAMF32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MFCBG.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SDKWQ32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\NETCL32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\ADDRZ32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WINRW.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\NETFC.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\NETPM32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CRLY32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\APICI32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\IEIX32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\D3CD32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\JAVATW.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\APICD.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ATLIJ32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CRHN32.EXE


Next you need to empty the Recycle Bin

Also the Temp files as follows :

1) Click Start, Programs (or All Programs), Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup
2) Choose the correct drive usually C:\
3) Check the boxes in the list and delete the files

Next you need to run Adaware SE

Run Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06:

  • Click the "Start" button.
  • Uncheck the "Search for negligible risk entries" entry.
  • Choose the "Use custom scanning options" scan mode.
  • Click the "Next" button.
  • Ad-Aware will begin to scan for malware residing on your computer.
  • Allow the scan to finish.
  • Right-click on any entry in the list and click "Select All" to select the whole list.
  • Click "Next" and choose "OK" at the prompt to quarantine and remove the objects.


Finally restart windows back into normal mode and post back a new HJT log and also the log from AboutBuster. Thanks :)

Appreciate your quick response.

Downloaded AboutBuster and Updated it.

Downloaded Adaware SE update.

Downloaded CWShredder.

Restarted my computer in Safe Mode no "Advanced Options" menu appeared so selection for operating system not available, however with my computer in"Safe Mode" carried out your instructions to:-
Open My Computer
Select View menu/Folder Options
Select View Tab/Show all Files
Click O.K.

All browsers were closed

When I reached theControl-Alt-Del to enter the Task Manager there is no Processes tab and onlyMy Computer and Explorer in the dialogue box.

Do I carry on to the next step i.e. Activate CWShredder and pressFix?

I have carried out your instructions as far as I could. AboutBlank would not run on my system (Not NTFS)?. A lot of the files on the print out of your instructions were not on the HighJack This scan I took after the CWShredder operation but I deleted what I could see. Also in the block of .EXE and .dll CRLY32 was only present as a .dll file and IEIX32.EXE cannot be deleted. Deleted what I could then emptied the Recycle Bin.
Ran Adaware SE and completed the process.
The HighJack this log follows:-

Hi

You may want to print out these instructions or save them as a text file with Notepad to your desktop because we will be restarting into Safe Mode later on in the fix and you might not be able to access the Internet. Read this instructions carefully and feel free to ask if you're unsure about something


You need to download Kill Box from Here. Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

1. Restart your computer. As your computer restarts, repeatedly press the F8 key on your keyboard until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears.
2. Use the arrow key to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
3. Use an arrow key to select an operating system and press ENTER.
4. When prompted whether you want your Windows to run in safe mode, click Yes.

You MUST keep all Windows, browsers, Programs CLOSED while performing the fix.


Right the next step is you need to run CWShredder again twice please.

After that you will need to run About:Buster again twice.

Note: The program does work on win98 Systems. The reference to NTFS is only Addressing ADS which isn't there unless it's a NTFS system.

Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.

Have a look for the following (it may not be present):

SearchAssistant


Next please run HijackThis, click Do A System Scan Only, and check the following:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: Class - {210E4567-72A8-B219-4757-A195720910D9} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CROO32.DLL

Press Fix Checked, HJT will prompt you to confirm if you would like to remove those items, select Yes.

Search for and delete these files (if present):

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WINEV32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IEED32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CROO32.DLL

If you cannot find the files listed above, then you need to use the Killbox program you downloaded earlier.



    [1] [Disconnect from internet and shut down all running programs
    [2] Double-click on KillBox.exe. and keep killbox Open.
    (Important to keep killbox and notepad file open)
    [3] Use task manager to end process on all instances of explorer.exe
    Your desktop will disappear but that's normal. It will come back after Reboot part of this fix.
    [4] Click "Delete on Reboot" box.
    [5] Paste this file into the top "Full Path of File to Delete" box.

    • C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CROO32.DLL

    [6] Click the "Delete File" button (Red Circle with White X)
    [7] Click "No" at the "Process and Reboot Now" prompt.
    [8] Click "OK" at the Pending Reboot prompt.
    [9] Repeat steps 6-8 above for these files:

    • C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IEED32.EXE

    [11] Click "Delete on Reboot" box.
    [12] Paste this file into the top "Full Path of File to Delete" box.

    • C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CROO32.DLL

    [13] Click the "Delete File" button which looks like a stop sign.
    [14] Click "Yes" at the "Process and Reboot Now" prompt.
    [15] Click "Yes" at the Pending Operations prompt to restart your computer. Allow machine to reboot.


Note that we may have to repeat this process a few times to completely kill off all of the files.

Restart Windows back into normal mode.

When windows has restarted you need to run Adaware again and also a Panda Active scan from Here

When done, you will need to run another HJT log and post back here. Thanks

While I was carrying it your previous instructions I ran Adaware and noticed that there was a big jump in critical objects when it "hit" the Windows/Favorites folder. After I had completed your routine and posted the HijackThis log I went into Windows Explorer to check the Windows/Favorites folder and found two sub-folders - "media" and another (sorry cannot remember the second name) which, in turn contained links to numerous web sites. I deleted them (deleting one deleted both which I thought peculiar) and emptied the Recycle Bin. Is it o.k. to do this while we are in the process of elimination? I'd hate to screw things up.

Hi

I have just looked at the log you have posted and you haven't screwed up, it has helped getting rid of any unnecessary files which were lying around on your PC.

You may want to print out these instructions or save them as a text file with Notepad to your desktop because we will be restarting into Safe Mode later on in the fix and you might not be able to access the Internet. Read this instructions carefully and feel free to ask if you're unsure about something

Next please run HijackThis, click Do A System Scan Only, and check the following:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = NOT USED (OK)

Press Fix Checked, HJT will prompt you to confirm if you would like to remove those items, select Yes.

Next

Restart your computer and when Windows has loaded do another HJT log and post it back here, Thanks

Hi

You need to clear out all the temp files and also empty your recycle bin. To empty all the temp files as follows:

For Internet Explorer 6, you can follow these directions to clear out temporary files and delete cookies.

1) Open Internet Explorer and click on Tools
2) Click on Internet Options
3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive.

To clean up other temporary files on your computer in Windows 98 :

1) Click Start, Programs (or All Programs), Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup
2) Choose the correct drive usually C:\
3) Check the boxes in the list and delete the files

Now we need to see if we need to restore some deleted files:
Please check for the following files using the Windows Search Engine:

control.exe
rundll32.exe
wmplayer.exe
msconfig.exe
notepad.exe
shell.dll
SDHelper.dll


If any are missing or not working properly then you can download new copies from Merijn's Files ,Select windows files from the menu on the lefthand side,and follow the instructions at that site to installthem where they belong for your OS.

Download the Hoster from here. Press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program. This will restore the original deleted Hosts file.

Appreciate your patience.
control.exe and SDHelper.dll are missing.

Accessed Merijn's Files and attempted to download control.exe first.

When I used Winzip Wizard, control_98.zip appeared in the Winzip title bar but nothing in the pane. After first attempt I wasn't sure it had downloaded. Winzip Wizard offered a search for the file and I carried out the search. I was amazed to see that in the Winzip archive were several CoolWebSearch files. Should I remove these from the archive before they do any damage?

Anyway I carried on and decided to "Save" control_98.zip rather than open but dont know where to save it to. Navigated to Windows/System but wasn't sure that was correct so decided to contact you.

A search using Start/Find/File and Folders shows no sign of control_98.zip.

What next?

Hi

If you are certain the files relate to CoolWebSearch, then you can remove them from the archive, If you wish you can search for them and then delete them.

or

you could run Spybot S&D

First is Spybot S & D available from here.

Is a tutorial at Net-Intergration Here

1. Downloaded and Install Spybot S&D, accepting the Default Settings

2. In the Menu Bar at the top of the Spybot window you will see 'Mode'. Make certain that 'default mode' has a check mark beside it.

3. Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D

4. Click the button to ‘Search for Updates’ then download and install the Updates.

5. Next click the button ‘Check for Problems'

6. When Spybot is complete, it will be showing ‘RED’ entries bold 'Black' entries and ‘GREEN’ entries in the window

7. Make certain there is a check mark beside all of the RED entries ONLY.

8. Choose ‘Fix Selected Problems’ and allow Spybot to fix the RED entries.

9. REBOOT to complete the scan and clear memory.

(Courtesy ChrisRLG)

With regards to the problem you are having with the files from Merijn's website, here are some instructions on how to do it:

  • Follow the link in my previous thread or Here
  • Choose Windows Files from the menu on the lefthand side
  • Select the file you require
  • Choose Windows 98/SE , Click Download
  • Save the file to convienent place e.g, Desktop
  • Locate the file, Double click on the file, then unzip it
  • Then Double click on the file you have just unzipped to install
  • Repeat for any other file you require


Post back if you have any problems

I have now managed to download and restore control.exe (to Windows/System) and SDHelper (to Spybot S&D folder).

I already had Spybot S&D installed so I didn't need to download it.

Downloaded "Hoster" and Restored Original Hosts.

When I use the "Disk Cleanup" facility although the items are checked the space that will be saved is at zero for each of them.
