Hi, after fretting all afternoon about my possible infection I found a site called http://www.internetinspirations.co.uk and downloaded killbox and Ace Utilities. After following some instructions I seam to be clear of SpyAxe. How can I check I am free of this virus?

cricket, download and run HijackThis, save the scan report and paste it here. Do not start a new topic. A helper will examine your log and give advice on which items need to be fixed (if any)

Read through this: http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12 there is the link for downloading and setting up HJT.

Welcome back cricket, and thank you for the log.

I will check through it for you. I'll be back as soon as possible :)

Looks like most of the visible signs of spyaxe are gone.

Let's make sure.

I need for you to download some programs. Do not use them until directed to do so.

If there's anything that you don't understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding with the fixes.
There should not be any opened browsers when you are carrying out the procedures below.
You will want to copy out these instructions and save them to notepad as you will not have internet connection during the fix.
Save the notepad to your desktop where you can find it.


Go to: http://download.ewido.net/ewido-setup.exe
" Install Ewido Security Suite
" When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
o Install background guard
o Install scan via context menu
" Double-click the icon on Desktop to launch Ewido
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.
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 this link to manually update Ewido
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/updates/
When you have finished updating, EXIT Ewido.


Go: here to download smitRem version 2.8
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Start up your computer, after the first 'beep' begin tapping on the F8 key. A black menu page will appear.
Use your arrow keys to choose Safe Mode (without networking!)
Click on the Enter key.
Your desktop will appear, although it will be very distorted. The words Safe Mode will be in each corner of the desktop.

We need to open up hidden files and folders. Click Start>>>>Control Panel>>>>Folder Options and double click.
Under the View tab scroll down to Hidden Files and Folders
Check Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck Hide extensions for known file types
Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended} Answer Yes
Click Apply and click OK

To make scanning easier and quicker, let's get rid of some temp files.
Click Start>>>>Run and type in the box: cleanmgr.exe click OK
Let the application scan your computer, then make sure these 3 are checkmarked:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

click OK and when finished, close the application.


Run Ewido with it's updated definitions:(...it's important that all windows must be closed)
Click Scanner
Click Complete System Scan to begin scanning.
Click OK when prompted to clean files
With the first file it prompts to clean, select the option:
"Perform action on all infections"
Choose clean and click OK.
Once finished, click the Save report button & save the report to your desktop.

Open the smitRem folder, double-click on the the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed.
Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

Open HJT and scan. Place a check/tick next to these items (if present):
O2 - BHO: HomepageBHO - {3e9b951e-6f72-431b-82cf-4a9fbf2f53bc} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\hp8E12.tmp (file missing)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

With everything closed (Nothing open) except HijackThis, click on the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

On your keyboard, click on the Windows key and the E key to bring up your Windows Explorer
Click to expand the C:/ drive, navigate to and delete the following files/folders:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\hp8E12.tmp <<<< NOTE: this may have changed names. Look in the System32 Folder for any hpxxx.tmp files and delete them all.

While you still have your Windows Explorer open, scroll through the C:\Windows to the Prefetch folder. Open the folder and delete all the contents.
Do not delete the folder, just the contents of the Prefetch folder. Close Windows Explorer.
Empty your recycle bin.

Reboot normally. Right-click on your desktop and choose Properties
Under the Desktop tab, click on Customize Desktop
Click on Web tab and uncheck/delete Security Info if present
Click OK
Click Apply and then click OK

Do an online scan at: Trend Housecalls Virus Scan
Let it clean, disinfect, quarantine any items found.

Open HJT, scan, and save the report.
Paste the Ewido log, the smitfiles.text, and the new HijackThis log to this thread.
I'll be watching for your reply.

hello TheMustangSource

To get the best help for your problem, create a 'new topic' and post your log in that :)

It becomes much too confusing to have more than one person's log in a thread.

Thank you in advance

The other log has been split off from this topic. mustang also had a pre-existing topic here. Stick to that topic and not post into other people's topics.

Thank you for the logs, cricket :)

I still see something that shouldn't be there.

Start up your computer, after the first 'beep' begin tapping on the F8 key. A black menu page will appear.
Use your arrow keys to choose Safe Mode (without networking!)
Click on the Enter key.
Your desktop will appear, although it will be very distorted. The words Safe Mode will be in each corner of the desktop.

On your keyboard, click on the Windows key and the E key to bring up your Windows Explorer
Click to expand the C:/ drive, navigate to and delete the following files/folders:
C:\Program Files\PSGuard
Close Windows Explorer

Empty your recycle bin.

Open HJT, scan and place a check next to this:
O16 - DPF: {FF3F0F03-0F01-131A-A3F9-08F02B23E0CC} - http://66.117.37.13/dba2218.exe
With everything closed (Nothing open) except HijackThis, click on the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

Reboot normally.

Do an online scan at: http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx
Let it clean, disinfect, quarantine any items found.

Reboot normally after the eTrust scan has finished.

Open HJT, scan and save the log to paste here in your next reply.

The smitrem log should be on your main drive. I would really like to see it.
Use Search...All files and folders
C:\drive
Enter smitfiles.txt as the name to search for

Once found, you can post it with your next post.

Let me know how the computer is working now.
Post the smitfiles log and the HJT log.

I'll be watching for your reply.

Hi Piney
Hope you are well.
You asked how my computer is working - so far fine, no pop ups or slowness or anything.
Please see latest HJT & smitrem log
I have no PSGuard file to delete, I have searched my c Drive. I do have a SpyeAxe folder which I did not touch. Should I delete this?
The virus scan came up clean

Looking good, cricket :)

Go ahead and delete the SpyAxe folder and empty the recycle bin.

I'll be back with more info for you :)

cricket??

I hate to tell you this but..

We have a couple of things left to do, because you are now getting my "You appear to be ALL CLEAN" speech.
:occasion7:
1. We need to re-hide those files again.

Click Start >>> Control Panel >>> Folder Options and double click
Under the View tab scroll down to Hidden Files and Folders
Uncheck Show hidden files and folders
Check Hide extensions for known file types
Check Hide protected operating system files (Recommended}
Click Apply and click OK
Close out of Control Panel.

2. If you are sure you are having no more problems, then let's create a new restore point

Right click on the My Computer Icon on your desktop
Choose Properties from the menu
Click on the System Restore tab
Put a checkmark/tick in the box next to Turn off System Restore on all drives
Click Apply and click OK
Reboot your computer

Again Right click on the My Computer Icon on your desktop
Choose Properties from the menu
Click on the System Restore tab
UNcheck the box
Click Apply and click OK
Reboot
You now have a clean restore point.

3. Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
Make your Internet Explorer more secure -
*Open Internet Explorer and click on the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options.
*Click on Security
*Click the Internet icon
*Click on Custom Level
*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
*Change the Allow paste operations via script to Disable
*Click on OK
*Save (if asked).
*Click on Apply button
*Click on OK
*Close Internet Options

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.

Update all scanning programs regularly -
Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

We will leave this topic open for a couple of days, in the event you have further problems.

Happy surfing, cricket :)
