Unread postby bktolle » December 11th, 2005, 9:35 am

It started... I think, with my home page being changed to yoursystemupdate.com and then pop-ups for spyaxe and spy tropper.

Nothing I have tried has worked... I had ad-aware/ad-watch and symantec corp ed installed and added spybot once I had the problem still to no avail... any help definitely welcome

here is my hijackthis logfile...

You may want to print out or make a copy of these instructions before starting, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet during most of this fix.

Fix SmitFraud
Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.


Please download, install, and update the free version of Ewido Security Suite:
  1. When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  2. When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  3. From the main Ewido screen, click on update in the left menu, then click the Start update button.
  4. After the update finishes, the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"
  5. Exit Ewido. DO NOT run a scan yet.


If you do not already have Ad-Aware SE 1.06 installed, follow these download and setup instructions. Also check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Again, DO NOT run a scan yet.


ENABLE viewing of HIDDEN FILES: Go here to learn how to show hidden files/folders:
http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html#5



Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  1. Restart your computer
  2. After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  3. Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  4. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.




Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen. Your desktop and icons will disappear and then reappear again --- this is normal.
Wait for the tool to complete and Disk Cleanup to finish --- this may take a while; please be patient.

Next, run Ad-aware and perform a full scan. Remove everything found.

Now open Ewido Security Suite
  • Click on the Scanner button in the left menu, then click on the Start button. This scan can take quite a while to run, so time to go get a drink and a snack....
  • If ewido finds anything, it will pop up a notification. You can select "clean" and check the boxes "Perform action with all infections" and "Create encrypted backup" before clicking on OK.
  • When the scan finishes, click on "Save Report". This will create a text file. Save that file for us later.
  • Close Ewido
Next go to Start -> Control Panel, click Display -> Desktop -> Customize Desktop -> Web -> Uncheck "Security Info" if present.



Restart your computer in normal mode.


Download SpyAxeFix.exe © noahdfear, and save it to your desktop.
  • Close all other programs and windows.
  • Double click SpyAxeFix.exe, then click Start to extract the tool to it's own folder.
  • Open the SpyAxeFix folder and double click the SpyAxeFix.bat to start the tool.
  • At one point when the tool runs, your taskbar will dissappear, and your computer will restart when the tool completes.
  • A text file named spyaxe.txt will be created in the SpyAxeFix folder.
  • Post the contents of that log please in your next response.


Run the Panda online virus scan at http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm
  1. Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  2. A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  3. Enter your Country
  4. Enter your State/Province
  5. Enter your e-mail address and click send
  6. Select either Home User or Company
  7. Click the big Scan Now button
  8. If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  9. It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  10. When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
  11. When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.


Finally, restart your computer once more, and please post:
  1. a new HijackThis log
  2. a smitRem log created in the tool smitRem Directory – smitfiles.txt
  3. the SpyAxe log created in the SpyAxeFix folder - spyaxe.txt
  4. the Ewido log
  5. the Panda log


Let us know if any problems persist.
