Greetings,

Brand new to the forum. I've been having internet issues for about 3 months and finally, someone mentioned spyware. What do you know, even with running Adaware and Spybot weekly, some stuff can get through. Below is my log.

Hi jkiihne...

Your HJT log is just about clean...Please follow the directions below...

________________________________________________________

Please print out or copy these instructions\tutorials to Notepad as the internet will be unavailble to you at certain points of the removal process. Make sure to work through all the Steps in the exact order in which they are listed below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before moving on with the fixes.
________________________________________________________

Step 1.
==========

We need to uninstall a program using "Add or Remove Programs" in the Control Panel:
  1. Get into Control Panel.
  2. Double-click "Add or Remove Programs".
  3. Look in the Currently installed programs box for each program listed below and if it is there:
    1. Click on it to select it.
    2. Click Change (or Change/Remove) button.
    3. If you are prompted to confirm the removal of the program, click "Yes"

Step 2.
==========

Please download and install CCleaner from here
(Note: DO NOT run this program yet)

Step 3.
==========

Please download Ewido Security Suite from here
  1. Install ewido security suite
  2. When installing the program, under "Additonal Options" uncheck...
    • Install background guard

  3. Launch ewido, there should now be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  4. The program will now open to the main screen.
  5. When you run ewido for the first time, you may get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  6. You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files:
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  7. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")

Hi jkiihne...

You still have a couple entires in you log to clean up. There is one entry in your Ewido log that I need to get some confirmation with some of my colleague's. Can you please run the "fix" below.

Thanks,
________________________________________________________

Please print out or copy these instructions\tutorials to Notepad as the internet will be unavailble to you at certain points of the removal process. Make sure to work through all the Steps in the exact order in which they are listed below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before moving on with the fixes.
________________________________________________________

Step 1.
==========

We need to uninstall a program using "Add or Remove Programs" in the Control Panel If Listed:
  1. Get into Control Panel.
  2. Double-click "Add or Remove Programs".
  3. Look in the Currently installed programs box for each program listed below and if it is there:
    1. Click on it to select it.
    2. Click Change (or Change/Remove) button.
    3. If you are prompted to confirm the removal of the program, click "Yes"
Weatherbug

Step 2.
==========

Please make sure Ewido has been updated. If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
Ewido manual updates

Step 3.
==========

Reboot computer into "Safe Mode" Using the F8 method...

Step 5.
==========

Please make sure all hidden files are still showing...

Step 6.
==========

- Close all Windows and Programs
- Start HijackThis...
- Select\check the following entries, Double-check to make sure that only these entries are checked.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customi ... ch/ie.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customi ... .yahoo.com
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customi ... .yahoo.com


- Click the "Fix checked" button.
- Close HijackThis

Step 7.
==========

We now need to cleanup all the Temp, Temorary Internet Files, Recycle Bin, etc...
- Start the CCleaner program
- Get into "Options" => Select "Advanced" => Deselect\uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
- We are only going to work with the "Cleaner" section. (Note: Do not use the "Issues" section)
- click on the "Run Cleaner button in the lower right-hand corner
- After complete close program
- Make sure Recycle Bin is empty

Step 8.
==========

Please start Ewido Security Suite
  • Click on scanner. (Note: Do not start any programs or open any windows while Ewido is scanning)
  • Click on Complete System Scan, the scan will now begin.
  • While the scan is in progress you will be promted to clean files, click OK.
  • When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a checkmark in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections", then choose clean and click OK.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located at the bottom of the screen named Save Report.
  • Click Save Report.
  • Now save the report .txt file to your desktop.
  • Close Ewido Security Suite
Step 9.
==========

- Reboot back into "Normal Mode"
- Post back a new fresh HijackThis log
- Post back Ewido scan log

Interesting thing

Unread postby jkiihne » October 22nd, 2005, 4:02 pm

I noticed something interesting. I was following the steps, but none of the HJT log entries showed up in the safe mode. Then I realized my rookie mistake: most of our internet surfing (99.9%) and all this communication has been from my wife's log in. The safe mode only brings up the administrator and my log ins. So when I run HJT in safe mode, it is from my log in. What can I do to resolve this??

Run the HijackThis "Fix" in "Normal Mode" (Wife's Log in) then go into "Safe Mode" to run Ewido.

Your HijackThis log is clean but we still have that one Ewido scan entry that is giving us an error....We believe that it is just an orphan entry but I would like to be 100% Please try the following scan...

- Please download and install the trial version of Spy Sweeper 4.5 from here
- Install it using the Standard Install option. (Note: You will be asked for your e-mail address, it is safe to give it. If you receive alerts from your firewall, allow all activities for Spy Sweeper)
- You will be prompted to check for updated definitions, please do so. (Note: This may take several minutes)
- Click on Options then Sweep Options
- Check Sweep all Folders on Selected drives
- Check Local Disk (C: )

Hi jkiihne...

Nice job... :)

Since Spy Sweeper found nothing but cookies I am giving you my {All Clean} speech. By the way Spy Sweeper is a very good tool to have in your corner. Try it for the trial period and if you like it I recommend that you purchase it. I have been running Spy Sweeper for quite awhile now and it is one tool that I recommend.
____________________________________

I can find nothing bad listed so I'm also posting my standard {All Clean} speech below. It has good information and some recommended tools (Recommended by all who deal with Spyware Nasties). Tools like SpywareBlaster => SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. Definitley recommended!!
____________________________________

The last thing I need you to do is to reset your "Hidden files and folders". System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion...
- Open "My Computer".
- Click on "Tools" and from the drop down menu select "Folder Options".
- Select the "View" tab.
- Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT "Show Hidden files and folders".
- CHECK the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option".
- Click "Yes" to confirm.
- Click "OK".
___________________________

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  1. Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point. You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore or Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above
  2. Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.
      1. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      2. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      3. Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      4. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      5. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      6. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      7. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      8. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    5. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  3. Use an AntiVirus 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. See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:
    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources
  4. Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
  5. Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
    Understanding and Using Firewalls
  6. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.
  7. Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  8. Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer
  9. Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware
  10. Install IE-SPYAD - IE-SPYAD adds a list of sites and domains associated with advertisers, marketers, and crapware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer. A tutorial on installing & using IE-SPYAD can be found here:
    Using IE-Spyad to enhance your privacy and security
  11. Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
