Hi elilah2002
Welcome to the MWR forum !
My name is askey127.
I'll help you with your log.
If any step in the sequence fails, proceed with the next step and let me know in your next post.

You may want to print this out, or save it as a Notepad document on your Desktop, since you won't have Internet access in Safe Mode.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Set Your Computer to Show All Files
Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. In addition, if you have Windows XP, go to Start, Search. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. If the opening screen shows, choose None of the above, just start the program.
Click Scan. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {12940AD0-214F-4C9C-8F90-35DC3320C4E9} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\bekp.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [icasServ] C:\WINDOWS\System32\icasServ.exe
O21 - SSODL: drEHwBtCL - {5853DB49-F2F9-71E3-6A46-73E275BFF076} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\ru.dll

Make sure all other windows except HJT are closed, and Click Fix Checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Start Your Computer in Safe Mode.
Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly as the machine boots, until a menu shows up. Choose Safe Mode from the list. In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.
-----------------------------------------------------------
File and Folder Deletion.
In Windows Explorer, navigate to these files. Use Find (F3) or Start, Search if the folder is not shown; then Delete these files, if present:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\bekp.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\icasServ.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ru.dll

If you have any problem deleting a file, right click the file 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, hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and look under the Processes tab. If the filename is in there, click End Process, then retry delete.
Note the name and location of any file you cannot delete.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HJT Log
Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis. Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply.

Hi

Thanx for getting bak to me! I did all the steps you told me to do, I could not locate the file:

C:\windows\system32\bekp.dll - I searched for it and it kept coming up as a Hijack this file.

I deleted the second file;

C:\windows\system32\icasServ.exe

I could not delete the last file because that error message about the file is in use, kept coming up. So I did ctrl+alt+del for task manager and could not see the file under processes.

c:\windows\system32\ru.dll - there was also an extension of this file not an application but of a different name.

Thanx once again.

Download Pocket Killbox
Download Pocket Killbox version 2.0.0.175 from: http://www.atribune.org/downloads/KillBox.exe
If you already have Killbox, ensure it is this version or later.
Unzip it to your desktop. Don't run it yet.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Please go into C:\Windows\System32\ and find all the files looking like ru.dll or similar. Don't attempt to do anything except record the names.
(rundll.exe and/or rundll32.exe, and slrundll.exe could be expected. Those are legitimate Windows files). Post the names of any others in your next reply.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Make SURE all other windows except HJT are closed, and Click Fix Checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Unregister dlls for removal.
Go to Start, Run OR Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt. Enter the following line, followed by <Enter> .

regsvr32 /u ru.dll

It's OK if any are not found, or 'error' out.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Start Killbox, Use standard file kill.(default settings).
Copy this into the file box:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\ru.dll

Now click the red X that looks like a stop sign, wait until a success message appears.
Note: if a file cannot be deleted, check delete on reboot for that file.
When finished exit Killbox and restart your PC.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Hi

I went into the C:\wsindows\system32\ file and there were so many files I didnt really know what too look for, i did find the ru.dll file. Sorry but I couldnt see what I was looking for.

I removed the o21 - ssodl:drehwbtc- thing from my Hijack log.

I treid to unregister the dll's for removal, but got the message "ru.dll was loaded but the DLL Unregister Removal Point waas not found. File could not be registered".

I then used Killbox and it removed the c:\windows\system\ru.dll

Here is my new log:

elilah2002,
Good work.

A few questions, if you could answer in your next reply.
I can't tell if you have any kind of firewall running. Does your CA antivirus setup have a firewall? Please let me know.
It looks like this machine is hooked up in a network, True?
Are you still getting excess traffic?

Trojan Hunter may be holding the HJT line. Let's temporarily disable it, and run HJT check again.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable Trojan Hunter Guard
Go to TrojanHunter Guard in the lower right corner of your screen. It is a light blue icon with a magnifying glass that can be difficult to see but the handle is red. Right click it and select settings. Uncheck "Load at startup" and "Enabled".
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove log items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis.
Click Scan. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:

O4 - Global Startup: Cable Login.lnk = ?
O21 - SSODL: drEHwBtCL - {5853DB49-F2F9-71E3-6A46-73E275BFF076} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\ru.dll (file missing)

Make sure all other windows except HJT are closed, and Click Fix Checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HJT Log
Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis. Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply.

Hey askey127,

I do not have any sort of firewall at all, the CA thing is my virus scan (VET) program and that does not have the firewall switched on - ( I hate them)!

This is not a network computer - just a home one, with Windows XP and about 4 users using it. Its not a netwrok or anything like that.

The symptoms I am still getting is that I have a desktop which is black with big letters advertising a spyware program - with a link to click on.Three users have this desktop but I managed to save the last one from getting it. I get little messages popping up saying that windows detects I have a virus and to click on a link which takes me to a spyware page. Also, I have been getting heaps of viral warning messages and sometimes my home page reroutes itself to a page which tells me my modem is disconnected. It actually did disrupt my modem and I had to reboot it and reinstall it. Also I cant find where any files or folders are - like I found one which i clicked open and thats when the desktop came but I dragged and dropped it to the trash. I cant find it anywhere add/remove programs, explorer - nowhere but I know its there somewhere.

thanx here is my new HJT log:

elilah2002,
This user log is clean. The logs from other users may not be.

By not running a firewall, you are very susceptible to some type of infections.
It is necessary to have one running to diagnose and/or fix this machine properly.
Without it we may all be wasting our time.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install and run a firewall NOW. You can activate the WinXP firewall from Start, Settings, Control Panel, Windows Firewall.
The third party products, even the free ones, can provide "outgoing" firewall protection, so that any programs already on your computer would need your permission before they could "phone home". The third party firewalls are slightly more complex, and have an early learning period, during which they remember which programs you will allow to talk to the outside world. Whether you want to accept the extra complexity to receive the extra protection is your choice. If you choose to install a third party firewall, be sure to disable the XP firewall first.
If your CA has a firewall, you can activate it.
Otherwise I would suggest that you download one of these, Right Now and run it.
Third party firewalls, available in both free and paid versions:
Zone Alarm firewall : http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp
Sygate firewall: http://smb.sygate.com/products/spf_standard.htm
Outpost Firewall : http://www.majorgeeks.com/download1056.html
Zonealarm is the easiest of these to configure.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Move HijackThis into a Different Folder. Its present location restricts access.
To make a new permanent folder: Go to My Computer, doubleclick C:
- Click File, New, Folder
- type in HJT
You now have a new folder at C:\HJT\. Copy all the HijackThis files from your present location into the new folder. Erase the old folder.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Post a HJT log from each user account please - one per post, all as a reply here. Please state which ones have admin privilages. Type a number or name with each so you and I will know which one we are talking about.
Log in on the account Danielle and run HijackThis. Post the log and let me know if that account has admin privs. Log off and Log in on another account without rebooting if possible and run HijackThis from that account. Repeat for each account present on the computer. Let me know for each account if the user has admin priviledges.
-------------------------------------------------------------
In addition to the HJT logs, tell me about the black screen and message. Is the "recommended" program SpyTrooper perhaps?

Hi Askey127,

When i set up the computer I didnt assign admin privelleges. I mainly do all the admin stuff but no users access is restricted in any way. I do not think it is Spytrooper, but something called Pc Health Check or something. I also see "about blank", which reroutes the homepage, and stops the gateway, so access to the net is difficult. The Black screen was an advertisement to a company (i cant remember it) with a link in the page which led to their homesite promoting spyware programs. I seemed to have deleted it when I deleted a folder in my directory.

elilah2002,
User #3 has an about:blank CoolWebSearch infection.

For this fix, any time you need to sign in, sign in as User#3, (Lee)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download CWShredder from here : http://www.trendmicro.com/cwshredder/, install it.
Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
Click Check For Update
Close CWShredder
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download 'SpSeHjfix'. to the desktop and then right click a blank part of desktop & select new folder, call it spfix
Unzip the file into that folder.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disconnect from the net and CLOSE ALL OPEN PROGRAMS.
Run 'SpSeHjfix'. and click on "Start Disinfection".
When it's finished it will reboot your machine to finish the cleaning process.
The tool creates a log of the fix which will appear in the folder.
If it doesn't find any of the SE files or any hidden reinstallers it will say system clean and not go on to next stage

Now run CWShredder. Click I Agree, then Fix and then Next, let it fix everything it asks about.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HJT Log from User #3
Reboot your computer. Sign in as User #3. Start HijackThis. Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply, along with the log from SpSeHjFix.

Looks good.
If your machine is behaving properly, let's clean up and install some protective programs. If there are still issues, let me know instead of proceeding.

Sign in as yourself.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Run A Windows Cleanup.
Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.
Right click the Recycle Bin icon and Empty the Recycle Bin

Now, in Windows Explorer (My Computer), delete all the files in the following folders. Please do NOT delete the folders themselves, just all the files that they contain.
C:\Windows\Prefetch\
C:\Windows\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\< User #1>\Local Settings\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\< User #2>\Local Settings\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\< User #3>\Local Settings\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\< User #4>\Local Settings\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\<User #1>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\
C:\Documents and Settings\<User #2>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\
C:\Documents and Settings\<User #3>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\
C:\Documents and Settings\<User #4>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\

-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable WinXP System Restore
Disable your System Restore to remove malware files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing them.
This only way to erase these files is to temporarily disable System Restore. You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, put a Check mark in the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
If you are not prompted to reboot, do it on your own.
-----------------------------------------------------------
After the Reboot,
Enable WinXP System Restore
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, Clear the Check mark beside the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
The Disable/Re-enable System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only once after the removal of malware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareGuard. It runs in the background, like your Anti-Virus program, to stop Browser Helper Objects (BHO's) from installing. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from connecting to malware and spyware sites by redirecting the connection request to 127.0.0.1, which is your local address. If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions.
You can download the MVPS Hosts File and see a HOSTS file tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
This website also contains useful tips, and links to other resources and utilities.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Secure your Internet Explorer. This should be done separately for each User
- From within Internet Explorer, click on the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options.
- Click once on the Security Tab
- Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
- Click once on the Custom Level button.
- Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
- Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
- Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
- Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
- Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to - Prompt
- Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to - Prompt
- Click on the Advanced Tab
- Uncheck the box "Enable Install On Demand (Internet Explorer)"
- Uncheck the box "Enable Install On Demand (Other)"
- When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
- If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
- Press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Options page

Let me know how it goes.
