OK RPH2707.

You can remove RSIT from your desktop now.
I would like to run one more scan to be as sure as I can be that the computer is clean.

Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.

  1. Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  2. It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  3. When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  4. 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
      Mail databases
  5. Click on My Computer under Scan.
  6. Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  7. You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  8. Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  9. Please post this log in your next reply.

If that comes back clean we will do some housekeeping and I will give you some tips on how to stay clean.

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.

  1. Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe.
  2. Click the CleanUp! button.
  3. Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
  4. If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  5. The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.

GooredFix: Click Start>Run and copy and paste this:
Code: Select all
"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\GooredFix.exe" /uninstall

Your computer now seems to be clean. Therefore please

  1. Clean out Temporary Files etc.
    This program is for Vista, XP and Windows 2000 only
    Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
    1. Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    2. Under Main choose: Select All. Then remove the check mark for cookies
    3. Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you use Firefox browser
    • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    • Click the Empty Selected button.
    • Remove the check mark for Cookies
    • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt if asked .
    If you use Opera browser
    • Click Opera at the top and
    • choose: Select All.
    • Remove the check mark for Cookies
    • Click the Empty Selected button.
    It is a good idea to do this every few weeks as a lot of junk collects there over time.

  2. Create a new, clean System Restore point which you can use in case of future system problems:
    Press Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
    Select Create a restore point, then Next, type a name like All Clean then press the Create button and once it's done press Close

    Now remove old, infected System Restore points:
    Next click Start->Run and type cleanmgr in the box and press OK
    Ensure the boxes for Temporary Files and Temporary Internet Files are checked, you can choose to check other boxes if you wish but they are not required.
    Select the More Options tab, under System Restore press Clean up... and say Yes to the prompt
    Press OK and Yes to confirm

  3. 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

  4. Download and install the free version of WinPatrol. This program protects your computer in a variety of ways and will work well with your existing security software. Have a look at this tutorial to help you get started with the program. If you want to help the developer of the program and get more information about what the programs that you see in Winpatrol please check out Winpatrol Plus. It does not need a new download.

  5. If you are using Internet Explorer v. 7 please read and follow the recommendations at this site. http://surfthenetsafely.com/ieseczone8.htm

  6. Use an Anti Virus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.
  7. Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least a few times a week (Once a day is a good idea). If you do not update your anti virus software it will not be able to catch new variants that come out.

  8. Use a Firewall (Hardware or Software) - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. Windows Firewall is not recommended.
    Be restrictive with granting access to the Internet. If you are unsure if the program really needs the access, test it by denying the access and see if this has any negative effects. If not, make the block permanent.

  9. Never run two Antivirus programs or two Software Firewalls at the same time. They can interfere with each other and cause problems.

  10. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently or better yet set computer for automatic updates.

  11. Update all programs regularly - Make sure you update all programs regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released. The best way to keep updated is to download PSI Secunia from https://psi.secunia.com. It will help you keep your programs updated. Keep it updated. It is free for personal use.

  12. Read and follow the suggestions given at this web site by Miekiemoes http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miek ... ntion.html that will give you more information on some of the points above.

[*]Use your best judgment when opening E-mails, following links, downloading programs, or surfing the web. If there is the slightest thing odd about something connected with any of those do not open, follow or download even if the sender is a friend. If it is a friend then ask if they really sent the information. They could be infected.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will be reduced.

Stand up and be Counted.
[quote]NOW is the time you can start to hit back at the people who infected you.
Please take the time to go and complain. Please post as a reply, you do not need to register to do so (but you can if you wish). It will also have a list of other places you can go to to register your complaint, depending on the country you are resident in. Please read the topics and complain, it is only with such complaints to government or government agencies that something will get done.
