Hi,

My prior topic/feed with your site was ended by the administrator for being inactive for 6 days. Disappointing as we were making good progress. Unfortunately, I was away from my laptop and was unable to follow the steps provided while I was away.

My original problem was with counter.fastclick. net and we had solved that, increased performance, and reduced system crashes. Generally, things are pretty good.

I would still like to continue cleaning my system. Most recently, I was asked to install a newer version of adobe reader and java, and run C-Cleaner. I believe I have done this correctly, though the instructions differed from those provided.

Below is my most recent Hijack This log. Your continued help and support is appreciated.

Hi spyonthis,
This time, if you have to go anywhere, tell me before you leave, so we can save your thread.
----------------------------------------------------------

Open CCleaner if it's not already running.
In the Left Pane, click Tools
Verify that Uninstall is highlighted in color, or click on it.
In the lower Right, click Save to Text File.
Pull down the arrow at the top of the Save dialog and choose Desktop as the location.
You can leave the filename as install.txt
Click Save
Exit CCleaner by clicking on the X button in the upper right of the CCleaner window.
Please post the contents of install.txt in your next post.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
Please go here to the Download Location, click on Download.
  • After clicking on the download and choosing Save, the "Save to location" dialog will come up.
  • Choose Desktop as the location to save the installer and click Save again.
  • You should now have a desktop icon named mbam-setup.exe. Double-click it.
  • Let it install the program where it wants to, with the default settings, and click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • If necessary, start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
  • Once the program is running, select Perform Quick Scan, then click 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:

spyonthis,
Your machine looks good.
All you really need to do is get rid of the ASK toolbar, and you should be good to go.

I am a bit uncertain about the OpenMG software entries, so I will leave retention of them up to you.
There were earlier instances where XP updates broke the OpenMG programs, and that usually means they are badly written.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Program Using Control Panel(XP)
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight this Entry, if it exists, and choose Remove :
ASK Toolbar
Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into Keeping the program.

When I try to remove the ASK Toolbar, I get a RUNDLL error message:

"Error loading: C:\PROGRA~1\AskSBar\bar\1.bin\AskSBar.dll

The specific module cannot be found."

Can I just open the C drive, find the program, and delete all the contents of AskSBar by selecting "delete this folder"?

Yes you can, and it's a good idea.....but the error may still come up.
Let me know if it does, and we can do a reg search to find out where it's being called from, and delete the entry.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Folder Deletion
In Windows Explorer (My Computer), navigate to the folder shown below, highlight if found, and press Delete.

C:\Program Files\AskSBar\ <== this folder only

You may have to first open the folder, choose View, Details, and delete all the underlying files and folders before an entire folder can be deleted.
If you need to delete underlying files in a folder and are unable to do so:
Right click the file set for deletion, and check Properties to see if it's read-only. Uncheck the read-only box, click Apply and OK. Then retry Delete.
If a message pops up saying "File in use", or something like that,, note the name of the file, hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and look under the Processes tab. If the exact filename is in there, highlight it and click End Process, then retry Delete.
Please Note the name and location of any item you cannot delete, or any file not found.

Re: spyware out...still need to clean up the system...help!

spyonthis,
We just have a bit of cleanup to do, and you can be on your way.
With your present system protections, you won't really need Ad-Aware, but its retention/removal is your call.

The Qoobox folder has infected items that have been quarantined in it, so we will remove the folder.
Please take extra care not to activate anything inside there before it is deleted.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Folder Deletion
In Windows Explorer (My Computer), navigate to the folder shown below, highlight if found, and press Delete.
C:\Qoobox\ <== this folder only
You may have to first open the folder, choose View, Details, and delete all the underlying files and folders before an entire folder can be deleted.
If you need to delete underlying files in a folder and are unable to do so:
Right click the file set for deletion, and check Properties to see if it's read-only. Uncheck the read-only box, click Apply and OK. Then retry Delete.
If a message pops up saying "File in use", or something like that,, note the name of the file, hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and look under the Processes tab. If the exact filename is in there, highlight it and click End Process, then retry Delete.
Please Note the name and location of any item you cannot delete, or any file not found.
-----------------------------------------------------------
TFC(Temp File Cleaner):
  • Please download TFC to your desktop,
  • Note: Save your work. TFC will automatically close any open programs. Let it run uninterrupted.
  • Double-click TFC.exe to run the program.
  • TFC will most likely require a Reboot. If prompted, click "Yes" to reboot.
The scan shouldn't take longer take a couple of minutes, and may only take a few seconds.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Reset System Restore Points
  • Click Start > Help and Support
  • Click on ->Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.
  • Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name it and then click Create, then Close.
  • Close Help and Support Center.
  • Click Start | Run and type Cleanmgr
  • Select (C: ) then click OK.
  • Click the More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore Section.
This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
This System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only as a Special Case after the removal of malware.

I would retain Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update/scan sequence with it periodically. The quick scan is sufficient.

I have deleted Qoobox folder (and all folder contents), executed TFC clean up, and reset system reset points. I have retained Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

The following software was used and/or downloaded during this cleaning process:

RSIT
ComboFix
HiJack This
CCleaner
TFC

Which should I uninstall/delete?; which should be retained?

Thanks.

I have included the most recent Hijack This log below:

spyonthis,
Your log is good.
My opinions:
You should delete RSIT and ComboFix, and Uninstall HiJackThis.
You can keep either CCleaner or TFC. CCleaner has a lot of custom settings, and will allow you to choose which cookies to keep. It's very capable, but you should stay away from the Registry button.

TFC is more thorough at temp file removals, but needs a reboot, and doesn't have settings you can customize.

If you choose to keep CCleaner, NEVER accept the ASK toolbar along with an update.
On the CCleaner website, you can click "other builds" and then download the latest "slim" version (no toolbar).
