Hello and Welcome Perkypen, :D

Please do the following:

STEP 1.
======
SpySweeper
Please download WebRoot SpySweeper.
(It's a 2 week trial):
  • Click the Free Trial link under to "SpySweeper" to download the program.
  • Install it.
  • Once the program is installed, it will open.
  • It will prompt you to update to the latest definitions, click Yes.
  • Once the definitions are installed, click Sweep Now on the left side.
  • Click the Start button.
  • When it's done scanning, click the Next button.
  • Make sure everything has a check next to it, then click the Next button.
  • It will remove all of the items found.
  • Click Session Log in the upper right corner, copy everything in that window.
  • Click the Summary tab and click Finish.
  • Paste the contents of the session log you copied into your next reply.

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")


STEP 5.
======
A2 Free

You will have to register name and email address but this is free too.
Download A2
and run. Post the results please.

Please post the results from SpySweeper, ewido, A2 Free and a new hijackthis log.

Susan,

A2 found nothing.

When I Ediwo complete scan would run it would encounter a problem and needs to shut down. So, I ran a fast system scan and got this:

Hello PerkyPen,

Let's try the following:


Online Virus Scans

Use IE to run at least two of these online virus scans (Or more if you wish.), Reboot after each scan:

If the above find things to clean, please re-run them to be sure the infections are gone. If not, please tell me what could not be cleared out.

Hijackthis fixes

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdates] C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe /auto
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winsupdater] C:\Program Files\winsupdater\winsupdater.exe /auto
O8 - Extra context menu item: &Viewpoint Search - res://C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Toolbar\ViewBar.dll/CXTSEARCH.HTML

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them:
C:\Program Files\winupdates<==folder
C:\Program Files\winsupdater<==folder
C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\ViewpointToolbar\ViewBar.dll/CXTSEARCH.HTML<==file

Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.


Please post a new hijackthis log.

Hello PerkyPen,

Your log looks clean. Hope you did not stay up too late with those scans.

Please do the following:

STEP 1.
======
Cleanmgr
To clean temporary files:
  1. Go > start > run and type cleanmgr and click OK
  2. Scan your system for files to remove.
  3. Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  4. Click OK to remove those files.
  5. Click Yes to confirm deletion.

STEP 2.( Windows XP only)
======
Prefetch Folder
Open C:\Windows\Prefetch\
Delete All files in this folder but not the Prefetch folder

STEP 3.
======
System Restore for Windows XP
Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)
    Turn off System Restore.
  1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the System Restore tab.
  4. Check Turn off System Restore.
  5. Click Apply, and then click OK.
Reboot.

Turn ON System Restore.
  1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the System Restore tab.
  4. UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
  5. Click Apply, and then click OK.


STEP 4.
======
Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

  1. 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

  2. Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative 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.

  3. 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 susceptible to being hacked and taken over. 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

  4. Test your Firewall - Please test your firewall and make sure it is working properly.
    Test Firewall

  5. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit Windows Updates 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.
