Spyware Infection Notice/Box

Unread postby a. drongo » October 30th, 2005, 7:39 pm

I have a box every time the computer starts which says:

Spyware Infection ( in red)
Your system is infected with spyware. Windows recommends etc

I am fairly confident that I have got rid of the spyware but the box won't go away. Please help.

Hello and Welcome a. drongo,

I would like you to run some scans and post the results.
STEP 1.
======
Let’s check for Malware/Spyware on your computer which is best dealt with by spyware-removal programs used one after the other.

Spybot: Search and Destroy:

1.Download 'Spybot: Search And Destroy'.
2. Install it according to the instructions in 'How To Setup Spybot SD and Ad-Aware SE'.
3. Next, 'Search for Updates' as the definitions are not likely to be up-to-date.
4. Close ALL windows except Spybot SD
5. Click the "Check for Problems" button
6. Click 'Fix Selected Problems' and fix only the RED items.
7. REBOOT to finish removing what Spybot SD found and clear memory


Ad-Aware SE by Lavasoft:

1. Download 'Ad-Aware SE'.
2. Install according to the instructions in "How To Setup Spybot SD and Ad-Aware SE"
3. Next, 'Check for Updates' by clicking on the 'world globe' second from the right at the top of your Ad-Aware SE window.
4. Install the updates.
5. Close ALL windows except Ad-Aware SE
6. Click on 'Start' and choose 'full scan' for a full scan.
7. Quarantine anything that it finds and SAVE the log file.
8.REBOOT to finish removing what Ad-Aware SE found and clear memory.

Please let me know if anything can not be cleaned by these utilities.
STEP 2.
======
Download Ewido
  1. Download and install Ewido Security Suite It is a free trial version of the program.
  2. Install ewido security suite
  3. Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  4. The program will now go to the main screen
STEP 3.
======
Update Ewido
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  1. On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  2. Then click on Start Update
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use Ewido manual updates

STEP 4.
======
Ewido Scan
Once the updates are installed do the following:
  1. Click on scanner
  2. Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  3. NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**
    o You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    o If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    o DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    o If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  4. Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  5. Click Save report.
  6. Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close ewido security suite.
**(Ewido for example has been flagging parts of AVG Anti-Virus, pcAnywhere and the game "Risk")


Scan again with HijackThis

Please POST
  • a New HijackThis log
  • the results from the Ewido log

Hello,

Just to let you know that this horrible box was no longer there when I turned on my computer 10 minutes ago. What a relief!
I followed all your instructions and now have more anti-spyware/ virus programs than anything else. I don't know which one did the trick but the main thing is that it's gone.
I am immensely grateful for all the good advice given. Many thanks.

Hello A. Drongo,

Glad everything is better! Please post another hijackthis log though. I do want to double-check a couple of entries. Please post the ewido log. I would like to make sure that everything was cleaned.
