You can re-install the latest version of Adobe Reader now if you like. You can download it from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
If you already have Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition installed or do not wish to have it installed Uncheck the box which says Also Download Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition.

Adobe 10.0.1 is a large program and if you prefer a smaller program you can get Foxit 3 instead from Foxit Software
Note: Do not install anything dealing with AskBar... presented as an installation option.

Close any open browsers.
Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the code box below into it:

I seem to have hit my first glitch in following your instructions. It is with the Kaspersky online scan. I'm using my phone wifi for internet connection and I received a couple of calls during this process which interrupted it. I'm trying now for a third time and the thing seems to just hang. Is there any way to wipe it clean and start over? It's telling me I don't have an uninterrupted internet connection which WAS true before, but now it is not interrrupted.

If the Kaspersky scan is causing you problems, leave it & try this one:
ESET Online Scanner
Go here to run an online scannner from ESET.
  • Note: You will need to use Internet explorer for this scan
  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click Start
  • When asked, allow the activex control to install
  • Click Start
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is unticked and the Scan Archives option is ticked
  • Click on Advanced Settings, ensure the options Scan for potentially unwanted applications, Scan for potentially unsafe applications, and Enable Anti-Stealth Technology are ticked
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • Use notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\Eset\Eset Online Scanner\log.txt
  • Copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic

It says, "ERROR: License has expired." I think I need to somehow wipe it clean and start from scratch if that's possible somehow.

Re: I've Been Bitten - YeeOwww! Please Help Me Remove Malwa

Unread postby jmw3 » February 27th, 2011, 9:57 am

Looks good.

Clean Up
Now we need to clear out the programs we've been using to clean up your computer, they are not suitable for general malware removal and could cause damage if used inappropriately.
Remove ComboFix
The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
Click Start > Run then copy/paste the following bolded text into the Run box and click OK:
ComboFix /Uninstall
Download OTC by Old Timer here & save it to your desktop.
Double click on OTC.exe. Click on CleanUp!.
You will receive a prompt that it needs to restart the computer to remove the files. Click Yes.
It will restart your computer automatically. If it doesn't, please restart your computer manually.
You can delete the following from your desktop:
Rootkit Unhooker
Any logs that may have been saved to your desktop

You should also remove HijackThis. You can do this by going to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis
  • Double click HijackThis.exe
  • From the Main menu click Open the Misc Tools section
  • Using the scroll bar, scroll down to Uninstall HijackThis
  • Click Uninstall HijackThis & exit then click Yes at the prompt
You can also Re-enable Spybot's TeaTimer now if you like.

All Clean
Congratulations, good work, your system is now clean. Now that your system is safe we would like you to keep it that way.
Take the time to follow these recommendations & it will greatly reduce the risk of further infections and greatly diminish the chances of you having to visit here again.

Create a Clean System Restore Point
Create a new, clean System Restore point which you can use in case of future system problems:
Press Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
Select Create a restore point, then Next, type a name like All Clean then press the Create button and once it's done press Close
Now remove old, infected System Restore points:
Next click Start->Run and type cleanmgr in the box and click OK
Ensure the boxes for Temporary Files & Temporary Internet Files are checked. You can choose to check other boxes if you wish but they are not required.
Select the More Options tab, under System Restore click Clean up... and click Yes to the prompt
Click OK and Yes to confirm.

Microsoft Windows Update
Microsoft releases patches for Windows and Office products regularly to patch up Windows and Office products loopholes and fix any bugs found. Install the updates immediately if they are found.
To update Windows
Go to Start > All Programs > Windows Update
To update Office
Open up any Office program.
Go to Help > Check for Updates

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a new and powerful anti-malware tool. It is totally free but for real-time protection you will have to pay a small one-time fee.
You can download it here & find a tutorial here. Keep it updated & run it regularly.

Download and install Javacools SpywareBlaster from here
SpywareBlaster adds a list of ActiveX controls, tracking cookies and sites which will be blocked in either Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. You need to manually check for updates regularly.

Download and Install a HOSTS File
A HOSTS file is a big list of bad web sites. The list has a specific format, a specific name, (name is just HOSTS with no file extension), and a specific location. Your machine always looks at that file in that location before connecting to a web site to verify the address. So the HOSTS listing can be used to "short circuit" a request to a bad website by giving it the address of your own machine.
Install MVPS Hosts File From Here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to which is your local computer.
You can Find the Tutorial HERE

Install WinPatrol
Download it here
You can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Read some information here on how to prevent Malware.

Hopefully these steps will help keep your computer clean.

If there are any other questions then feel free to ask or in future do not hesitate to contact us here at The Malware Removal Forums

Thanks jmw3! I can't thank you enough for all your time and patience. It's really great what you kind folks do for people like me. I will definitely make a contribution to the site.

One weird thing happened after I uninstalled ComboFix. I received a number of Windows messages that had the following language:

"Windows cannot find ‘32788R22FWJFW\iexplore.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search." There was a single "OK" button. When I clicked on "OK" or the red "X", the message box would reappear. This happened several times. Then I noticed a slight change - same exact thing except the file name was "FireFox.exe". Same behavior - click on "OK" or the red "X" several times to dismiss only to have it reappear. Then there was a third change - the file name changed to "hidec.exe" - same exact behavior but the file name change. Eventually, tose stopped appearing and I was able to continue through to the end with your instructions.

Thanks again for your help. I haven't any idea how I got this malware but I'm sure glad it's gone! Thanks again!

Strange... Can't say I have ever seen the error occur before :scratch: You didn't happen to run OTC before uninstalling ComboFix?? That's all I can really think of that may have caused that. Anyway, good to hear it is sorted & your computer is running well. I'm glad I could help.

Good Luck & Surf Safe :)
