Hello countkent and welcome,

There are just some minor things to fix.

Disable TeaTimer because it will interfer with the fixes.
  1. Run Spybot-S&D
  2. Go to the Mode menu, and make sure that Advanced Mode is selected
  3. On the left hand side, choose Tools then Resident
  4. Uncheck Resident TeaTimer and OK any prompts
  5. Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect before running HJT.
______________________________

Disable WinPatrol
  1. Right Click the 'Scotty Dog' icon in the System Tray
  2. Click Exit Program
______________________________

Disable Spyware Doctor too, it might interfer.
______________________________

Run HijackThis, click on None of the above, just start the program, click on Scan. Put a check in the box on the left side of the following items if still present:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\System\panels\blank.htm
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\System\panels\blank.htm
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {12345678-1234-1234-1234-1234567890AB} - (no file)

Close ALL windows and browsers except HijackThis and click Fix Checked
______________________________

You may re-enable Teatimer and Spyware Doctor now.

All the O16 lines don't show any links, just a description. Did you remove the links from the log ?

A note on the following service :

O23 - Service: Remote HID Service (LvHidSvc) - Philips - C:\WINDOWS\system32\lvhidsvc.exe

Remote access service by Philips Inc. Legitimate, but remote access could be considered dangerous unless monitored very carefully.
______________________________

Inteceptor.dll

Unread postby countkent » December 12th, 2005, 1:08 pm

After doing a bit of homework myself i thought this might help?

Paul.


Inteceptor.dll, interc~1.dll, and intercepthelper.dll install with Spy Catcher, a popular anti-spyware program by Tenebril Software. Files called scactiveblock.exe and protector.exe may also appear on your system. These files prevent rogue programs from sending personal information to a remote user via the Internet. If you use Spy Catcher with real time scanning, you'll want to leave this file in place. You'll find more info and support at

It was not neccesary to delete the Philips Remote Access service, simply disabling the service would have been just fine, if you did delete the service with HijackThis, you can undo that action by restoring a backup if you want.

Run HijackThis, click on Open the Misc Tools Section, click on Backups. Select the item you want to restore and click Restore

Below is how to disable a service (in this way it will not be started at boot)

Click Start then Run
Type in services.msc
Click Ok

Scroll down and double click on the service called Remote HID Service
Click Stop and then set the Startup Type to Disabled.


Do these entries show up like that in HijackThis or did you take out the http:// .... ?

If they show up like that, fix them. When needed, the ActiveX control will be downloaded again.

Inteceptor.dll, interc~1.dll, and intercepthelper.dll install with Spy Catcher, a popular anti-spyware program by Tenebril Software. Files called scactiveblock.exe and protector.exe may also appear on your system. These files prevent rogue programs from sending personal information to a remote user via the Internet. If you use Spy Catcher with real time scanning, you'll want to leave this file in place. You'll find more info and support at

Thanks, I know that the file belongs to Spy Catcher, I still would like to have the file please for analysis. Several experts wish to examine that file.

I just noticed your post at thespykiller forum. You didn't attach the file to your post. If you need help on how to UL files, please see this topic:
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=5.0

Thanks. :)

  3. On the left hand side, choose Tools then Resident
  4. Uncheck Resident TeaTimer and OK any prompts
  5. Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect before running HJT.

Hello Paul,

Thank you very much for uploading the file. The download was perfect. :)

Your HijackThis log is clean, do you experience any trouble with the PC ?


Please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Windows, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office Updates

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site frequently. 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.

If you are running Microsoft Office, or any application of it, go to the Microsoft's Office Update site and make sure you have at least all the critical updates installed.

If you have trouble with Windows Update, you still can get all the Critical Updates, Security Fixes and Service Packs. Below are a few links to bookmark.

Microsoft Security Bulletins
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/current.aspx

Office downloads
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/offic ... fault.aspx

Download Center
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx

Microsoft Security Advisories
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/securi ... fault.mspx

Recently Published
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/securi ... fault.mspx

Make your Internet Explorer more secure
  1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  2. Click on the Security tab
  3. Click the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  4. Click on Default Level and click Ok
  5. Click on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialise 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
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  6. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
Take the time to check out the following links

Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwa ... ilies.mspx

Keep your Sun Java up to date

The most current version of Sun Java is: Java Runtime Environment Version 5.0 Update 6

To check if you have the latest version installed and get the needed updates, please go to the link below:
http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_automatic.jsp
You'll need to use IE and allow ActiveX for this update. Follow the instructions on that page to check your Java Software.

Or you can get the manual download here:
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Check in your Control Panel, under Add/Remove programs and uninstall ALL older versions of Sun Java. And in the future, remember to remove older versions of Java when you automatically update to a newer version to avoid exploitation of older versions left on your system.

Check out these topics for more information:
http://spywarewarrior.com/viewtopic.php?t=17910
http://spywarewarrior.com/viewtopic.php?t=17598

Download and install the following free programs
  • SpywareBlaster
    SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
    You can download SpywareBlaster here
    A tutorial can be found here
  • SpywareGuard
    It provides a degree of real-time protection solution against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method. An anti-virus program scans files before you open them and prevents execution if a virus is detected - SpywareGuard does the same thing, but for spyware. And you can easily have an anti-virus program running alongside SpywareGuard. It also features Download Protection and Browser Hijacking Protection.
    You can download SpywareGuard here
    A tutorial can be found here
  • IE-SPYAD
    IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. It basically prevents any downloads, cookies, scripts from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
    You can download IE-SPYAD here
    A tutorial can be found here
  • Hosts File
    A Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad, spyware sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
    A tutorial tutorial can be found here
    • MVPS Hosts File
      You can download the MVPS Hosts File here
      Furthermore the website contains useful tips and links to other resources and utilities.
    • Bluetack's Hosts File and Hosts Manager
      Essentially based on the research made by Webhelper, Andrew Clover and Eric L. Howes, it contains most if not all the known spyware sites, sites responsible for hijacks, rogue apllications etc...
      Download Bluetack's Hosts file here
      Download Bluetack's Hosts Manager here
Install Spyware Detection and Removal Programs
  • Ad-Aware
    It scans for known spyware on your computer. These scans should be run at least once every two weeks.
    You can download Ad-Aware here
    A tutorial can be found here
  • Spybot - Search & Destroy
    It scans for spyware and other malicious programs. Spybot has preventitive tools that stop programs from even installing on your computer.
    You can download Spybot - S&D here
    A tutorial can be found here
Before adding any other Spyware Detection and Removal programs always check the Rogue Anti-Spyware List for programs known to be misleading, mistaken, or just outright "Foistware".
You will find the list here

Ewido Security Suite

Most of you will have already the trial version of this software, which is an excellent program and particularly good at catching trojans. If you find it useful you might want to consider buying the full program. When the trial period ends, the real-time protection and the automatic update feature will stop working. You still will be able to update the program manually.
You can download Ewido Security Suite here
Ewido manual updates. Make sure to close Ewido before installing the update.

WinPatrol

WinPatrol uses a heuristic approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others download new reference files.
  • Detect & Neutralize Spyware.
  • Detect & Neutralize ADware.
  • Detect & Neutralize Viral infections.
  • Detect & Neutralize Unwanted IE Add-Ons.
  • Detect & Restore File Type Changes.
  • Automatically Filter Unwanted Cookies.
  • Avoid Start Page Hijacking.
  • Detect changes to HOSTS & critical system files.
  • Kill Multiple Tasks that replicate each other, in a single step!
  • Stop programs that repeatedly add themselves to your Startup List!
Starting with WinPatrol 9.5 PLUS users also get the addition of Real-time Infiltration Detection so they'll know immediately when changes are made to critical system areas. WinPatrol Free is not demo or trial software. You're welcome to use it as long as you like.
You can download WinPatrol here
WinPatrol FAQ

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 the link below for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs.
Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=53#53

Update your Anti Virus Software

It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

Use a Firewall

I can not stress enough 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 an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below.
Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=56#56
A tutorial on Understanding and Using Firewalls can be found here

Additional Information

For more information about Spyware, the tools available, and other informative material, including information on how you may have been infected in the first place, please check out this link.

A very nice collection of tutorials is available at Bleeping Computer
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/

Happy surf Paul and let me know if you have any special trouble with your computer as HijackThis does not show everything.
