I would be grateful for some help. Spyaxe has got on my computer and it's driving me mad. I am "well protected" with Spybot, Ad-Aware, and a range of other programmes but they haven't rid me of this. I have searched the web but I am not very computer literate and I am wary of trying the various suggestions offered. MalWare Removal kindly helped me with another problem about 6 months ago. Can someone help me this time - bearing in mind I'm a bit of a novice.

If you would download and install HijackThis, do a scan and save the log to paste as a reply to this post, someone can help you :)

Make sure you are using the the latest version (1.99.1) ofHijackThis
Install/extract it to its own folder on the main drive. (C:\HJT)

Hello again, Mojo :)

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.

I see you still have Ewido on your computer. Make sure it is updated and setup as below:
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.

Disable SpywareGuard:

Right click the running icon of Spywareguard, it will open the program.
Then go to Menu, file, exit.
Then confirm the program is closed.
Once we are finished, remember to re-enable Spywareguard.

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

While still in the Control Panel, double click on Add/Remove Programs
Scroll ... find ... highlight and delete/uninstall/remove (if present)
Security Toolbar
You will be prompted to reboot... choose NO
Close out of the Control Panel

Open HJT and scan. Place a check/tick next to these items (if present):
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O2 - BHO: HomepageBHO - {1ca480cd-c0e5-4548-874e-b85b17905b3a} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\hp5B35.tmp <<< this may change names
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [GSISETUP] C:\DOCUME~1\MLC\LOCALS~1\Temp\GsiInst.exe INSTALL C:\DOCUME~1\MLC\LOCALS~1\Temp\.\V205Res 13
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyAxe] C:\Program Files\SpyAxe\spyaxe.exe /h

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

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.

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.


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\nvctrl.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mssearchnet.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\hp5B35.tmp <<<< NOTE: this may have changed names. Look in the System32 Folder for any hpxxx.tmp files and delete them all.
C:\Program Files\SpyAxe
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

After the reboot, on a clear spot on your desktop, right-click 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: http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx
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.

Thank you Piney for your clear instructions which I have followed. Here is the information you needed [Smitfiles.text; Ewido log; and new HJT log]. I still have the irritating pop-up and flashing icon on the bottom tool bar.

Well!

Let's do something about that then.

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.

Disable SpywareGuard:

Right click the running icon of Spywareguard, it will open the program.
Then go to Menu, file, exit.
Then confirm the program is closed.
Once we are finished, remember to re-enable Spywareguard.


Go to the Control Panel, double click on Add/Remove Programs
Scroll ... find ... highlight and delete/uninstall/remove (if present)
SpyAxe
You will be prompted to reboot... choose NO
Close out of the Control Panel

Open HJT and scan. Place a check/tick next to these items (if present):
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyAxe] C:\Program Files\SpyAxe\spyaxe.exe /h
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 folder:
C:\Program Files\SpyAxe
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.

Do an online scan at: Trend Housecalls
Allow the scanner to remove/delete any items found.

When finished, reboot normally.
Open HJT and scan. Save the scan log to paste here along with information if you are still having problems.
I'll be watching for your reply.

Thanks Piney for your patience but I'm still having trouble. I followed everything you advised but when I reboot I still get the Spyaxe icon and it returns to the programme file. I repeated your suggestions and what happens is that after uninstalling the programme [everything in safe mode] I don't find it in the HJT scan, and I don't find it in Windows Explorer. However, Prefetch gets filled with 26 files - and among them is spyaxe.exe. I delete all the contents of the folder as you instruct but everything returns when I reboot. Finally, I can't get Trend Housecalls to work. It won't scan for me.

Is it of any help for you to know that when I reboot I get a pop-up "Norton Antivirus 2005 does not support the Repair feature. Please uninstall and reinstall". It looks odd to me so I have ignored it. Anyway - here is the HJT log. I look forward to your continuing help.

Thank you Mojo :)

Hang tuff for a minute or so, I need to formulate some instructions, but I should post within just a few minutes.

SpyAxe is NOT invincible ;)

Mojo, I need for you to delete the smitrem that you have, and download a new one.
noahdfear has updated his fix to include what may have caused the resistance by SpyAxe.

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


Make sure Ewido is updated and setup as below:
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.

Copy or print out the next, as you will not have internet connection while in Safe Mode.

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.

Disable SpywareGuard:

Right click the running icon of Spywareguard, it will open the program.
Then go to Menu, file, exit.
Then confirm the program is closed.
Once we are finished, remember to re-enable Spywareguard.

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

While still in the Control Panel, double click on Add/Remove Programs
Scroll ... find ... highlight and delete/uninstall/remove (if present)
Security Toolbar
SpyAxe
You will be prompted to reboot... choose NO
Close out of the Control Panel

Open HJT and scan. Place a check/tick next to these items (if present):
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyAxe] C:\Program Files\SpyAxe\spyaxe.exe /h
With everything closed (Nothing open) except HijackThis, click on the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

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.

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.


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:
Look in the System32 Folder for any hpxxx.tmp files and delete them all.
C:\Program Files\SpyAxe
C:\Program Files\Security Toolbar
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

After the reboot, on a clear spot on your desktop, right-click 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: http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm
Click the "Free use Active scan" in the upper right of the web page.
Click Scan your PC & a 'pop up' window will appear.
Make sure your popup blocker allows this to come up.
Click Scan Now
Enter your e-mail address & click Scan Now ...
The program will begin downloading 8 MB Panda's ActiveX controls
Begin the scan by selecting My Computer
If it finds any malware, it will offer you a report.
Click on see report. Then click Save report

Reboot normally once more.

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

Hello Piney.
Well, following your instructions it now looks like Spyaxe is no longer reloading when I reboot. The icon does not appear and it no longer features in my programmes. However, there is still something not right. When I reboot I get pop-ups "Windows Installer .......preparing to install" and "Norton Antivirus 2005 does not support the Repair feature, please uninstall and reinstall".
When I did the Panda scan, the scanning process appeared in a new window which was "cut-off" on the right hand side. I could not enlarge the window. At the completion of the scan it showed that it had detected 2 spyware files. but there was no feature on view to allow me to save the scan. Here are the new HJT log, smitfiles.text, and the Ewido log. Thank you for your continuing patience. Mojo

Thank you for the logs and the info. Let me do a mind meld with my mentor and see what we can come up with that will help you.

Mojo, I want to thank YOU for your patience. I know the computer is important to you, and you have been very gracious about waiting.

Smitrem noted two shortcut url's, which were also mentioned in your Adaware log
Malware.SpyAxe Object Recognized!
Type : File
Data : SpyAxe 3.0 Website.lnk
TAC Rating : 4
Category : Malware
Comment : Shortcut to bad file : C:\Documents and Settings\MLC\Start Menu\Programs\SpyAxe\SpyAxe 3.0 Website.lnk
Object : C:\Documents and Settings\MLC\Start Menu\Programs\SpyAxe\

so we will do two things.

Click on the Windows key and the E key to bring up your Windows Explorer
Expand your C:\ drive >>> Documents and Settings >>> MLC >>> Start Menu >>>Programs and delete any instance of SpyAxe found in the right pane.

Close Windows Explorer

Click Start >>> Run ...type into the box Cleanmgr.exe
Let the program scan your machine. When finished make sure these 3 are checked:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

Press OK
Once done, reboot your machine.

Open Adaware SE, update the definitions before doing a full system scan.
Fix everything found.

If unable to fix/quarantine something, make a note of it to post with your next HJT log.

Reboot, open HijackThis and scan. Save the report to paste here.

As to the Nortons warning... I found this Symantec site: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/nav.nsf/5faa3ca6df6f549888256edd0061c0a4/fc096f3adb76b4d388256f08006d038b?OpenDocument&src=bar_sch_nam&seg=ag

Follow their instructions from the top down. The online malware scanner at Symantec used to give a lot of false positives, so I won't recommend you do it.

There IS an automated (free) on-site analyzer you can use to check for bad files within the Norton's product.
If it comes down to doing an uninstall, they used to have a tool to use, which will remove most while leaving some items for the re-install. I've uninstalled Nortons from several machines and it is not impossible, but it is difficult.

I suggest we make sure the SpyAxe stuff is gone before you attempt to mess with Nortons

I'll be watching for your HJT log, any difficulties you encountered and an update on your computer's performance.
