Still Can't Access Certain Antivirus/Antispyware Sites.

Unread postby alfarom » February 22nd, 2009, 11:53 am

've removed a load of spyware and spyware infections from a friend's pc and while it seems to be running fine in most respects and I can reach most websites I can't access certain welll known AV and anti spyware sites.

I know this is a common thing for some spyware to do but I have run endless checks with:

Superantispyware (updated from a manual download on another pc)
spybot (which uniquely, does update ok).
AVG
Malware bytes
Hijackthis
ComboFix
SmitfraudFix
VundoFix

I can't find anymore infections and have also checked the HOSTS file for any entries. There doesn't seem to be any of these sites added in the Restriced sites area of IE. Firefox is also installed and is also blocked from the same sites...

I have run all these utilities in every user account.

I have also used LSPFIX and found nothing odd and reset the network settings with WinsockFix.

This is a machine running XP Home with SP2.

Any idea's where I can start looking for an answer?

The latest HijackThis file is attached...

I don't believe it... After restarting the pc yet again the problem seems to have been solved. I did run ComboFix just prior to Hijackthis and this must have finally cured the problem. Please feel free to take a look at the log to make sure I haven't missed something..

In order for us to help you it is necessary that you provide us with a HijackThis log, copied and pasted into the opening post of your topic, not attached.

Although your system may appear to be infection free, it should really be checked by someone with the expertise to evaluate whether or not malware is still present. If you still require help, please follow the guideline at the link below to start a new topic and post your HijackThis log.
