Register to Remove

Unread postby VopThis » January 6th, 2006, 10:05 pm

First move Hijackthis out of the TEMP folder (or Desktop) and put it in a permanent folder somewhere:

  • Create a new folder in your C: Drive. Name it HJT (or HijackThis) such as C:\Program Files\HJT, C:\HJT and move the HijackThis.exe file in it.
  • It's best for this tool NOT TO be located in your Desktop or in a TEMP folder. This way you can undo any changes if something goes wrong.




Please disable the following application(s), as it/they may hinder the removal of some entries. You can re-enable them after your computer is clean.

Disable Microsoft AntiSpyware
  1. Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  2. Click on Tools, Settings.
  3. In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
  4. Under Startup Options uncheck Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
  5. Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
  6. After you unchecked these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  7. Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware Icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.



Please download, install, update and scan your system with the free (trial) version of Ewido trojan scanner:
  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"), 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....
  5. 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.
  6. When the scan finishes, click on "Save Report". This will create a text file. Please then paste the contents of the text file to this thread.


REBOOT.






Read over the following directions. Ask if anything appears unclear to you.


Download Clean.bat to your desktop: for later use to clean out your TEMPORARY and PREFETCH files.
http://www.thatcomputerguy.us/downloads/clean.bat



We will be restarting into Safe Mode later on in the fix and you might not be able to access the Internet. Accordingly, it is probably a good idea to print out the following directions or copy them to a text file on your desktop using NOTEPAD. Read these instructions carefully and feel free to ask if you're unsure about anything.

SELECT HijackThis FIX ITEMS: Scan with HijackThis and place a check next to these items:

Make sure that all browser windows and internet links are closed, even this one!
CLICK ’FIX CHECKED’ with HijackThis.



HIDDEN FILES: To make sure you can see all hidden files, please follow the directions here

SAFEMODE: Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key at restart and choosing 'safe mode' menu option (explained here if needed).



Delete TEMPORARY FILES: Now, hunt down the most common temporary file locations and the temporary file clutter contained therein (and of possible malware hiding places):

Go to Start > Run and type: CLEANMGR.EXE and hit enter.
When prompted select the C: drive and click ok.
Check the boxes for:
  • Temporary Internet Files
  • Downloaded Program Files
  • Recycle Bin
  • Temporary Files

Click OK or Enter

For additional, more thorough cleaning and for multi-profile user configurations:
(*) Run Clean.bat to clean up your TEMPorary files.

***** Clean out the Recycle Bin for items removed below, ONLY once you have regained the full functional use of your PC.




Navigate to these files or folders using Windows Explorer (OR Start -> Search) and delete (if present):


DELETE FILES:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\yaemu.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\sphlp 32.exe


POST A REVISED HIJACKTHIS LOG for review:
Reboot and post a new HijackThis log with any feedback as appropriate - how things are now behaving: any new or remaining apparent issues.

MY brain hurts

Unread postby toonfireman » January 7th, 2006, 7:17 am

First thanks for your help.
When I was in safe mode it would notb allow type in start run box.
so there was nothing in the recycle bin.
When trying to delete system 32 yaemu.exe would not allow says it is being used by some else, everything was closed down.
and it could not find sphip32.exe
AVS is still coming up with the virus warning, if it is any help I did a full scan with AVG, funny thing it did not find the virus, but did show hgqhp.exe as a reading error no idea what this means but thought I would pass it on.
This is the new hijack file

C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Desktop\HijackThis.exe

You need to put HijackThis in its own FOLDER as per my last post




We are potentially dealing with a rootkit exploit. There could likely be at least half a dozen hidden files to be found running on your PC. Proceed carefully and follow all instructions, please. Also your feedback is very important to a successful outcome (e.g. you didn't state whether you atttempted the EWIDO scan - don't bother with that one for now).



(BETA Rootkit Elimination Technology):
Note: The F-Secure BlackLight Beta only works on 32-bit Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server. The current F-Secure BlackLight beta does not work on Windows NT, 95, 98, ME, or 64-bit Windows.



Please print out these instructions as you should have all open windows and programs closed when running the scan.

Step 1.
==========

- Please download F-Secure's trial Blacklight from here
- Print out the help page for guidance. It will be found here
- Click the "I Accept" button at the license agreement
- Click the "Download" button to start the download
- Save it to your Desktop

Step 2.
==========

- Double-click the blbeta.exe file on your Desktop and select ‘Run’.
- Select the "I Accept the agreement" at the license agreement, then click "Next"
- Make sure "Scan through Windows Explorer (Recommended)" is selected\checked (if asked)
- Make sure all open programs and windows are closed (including this IE window) before clicking the "Scan" button
- Click "Scan


- When the animated graphics, in the bottom right-hand corner disappears, click "Close" – VERY IMPORTANT: Do not proceed beyond this point on the initial first assessment – this is BETA software – need to proceed carefully


- A text log file will appear on your Desktop when the scan is complete. It will start with fsbl-xxxxxx.txt (i.e.: fsbl-20051017165931.log)
- Paste the contents of that log back here.



In addition or if you experience any problems running the above tool proceed as follows:

Please download this file:
http://www.sysinternals.com/files/rootkitrevealer.zip
Unzip it to its own folder or to your desktop.
Run RootkitRevealer.exe and scan your system. When the scan is complete click on File, Save, and save the log file. Copy and paste the log file here.

Re-run Blacklight and allow it to RENAME ONLY THE ITEMS LISTED BELOW


Close all open windows and programs before running the scan. Review the help link (last post) before proceeding:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\howiper.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\csaif.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\favset.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\filesafer23.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\dmvdq.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\pppcgm.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\sphlp32.exe



Disable MS Antispyware and run EWIDO scan as per previous instructions.


REBOOT.

Post a revised 'Blacklight' log, a EWIDO log, and latest HJT log, please.

Review the help link and most things should be obvious from that:
http://www.f-secure.com/blacklight/help/


For each file that Blacklight finds your can select (click on) each item and press the 'Rename' button.


Use the rename process button for all hidden files that were found except for:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WBEM\WBEMTEST.EXE

C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Desktop\HijackThis.exe
The HijackThis program is in a location that can cause you a lot of clutter problems on your desktop. Delete your current copy of this program, and download it from here:
http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

Run the downloaded program and save it where it offers to save it.

It will put the Hijackthis program in an appropriate folder. Run HijackThis from there please:

C:\Program Files\HijackThis\Hijackthis.exe



SELECT HijackThis FIX ITEMS: Scan with HijackThis and place a check next to these items:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{1076EA75-C8C6-4094-872A-3521D251AFA5}: NameServer = 85.255.116.126,85.255.112.226

Make sure that all browser windows and internet links are closed, even this one!
CLICK ’FIX CHECKED’ with HijackThis.



Run one more scan as a further check, if you will.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      - Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
      - Scan Archives
      - Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:
      Select My Computer
  • This program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.





POST A REVISED HIJACKTHIS LOG for review:

To help avoid serious infection again, please look carefully at this post for some excellent preventative measures. Prevention must be made the first line of defense to improve upon.



ONCE your are as clean as possible - As a final cleanup step, it is often advisable to Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove any bad files that may have been backed up by Windows . The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing them. And, this is the only complete way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which could likely be infected, anyway.)

PLEASE NOTE: you will need to log into your computer with an account that has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.


(Windows XP)
c:\System Volume Information\_restore….

To Turn OFF System Restore.
  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  3. On the System Restore tab, check Turn off System Restore or Turn off System Restore on all drives.
  4. Click Apply.

To Turn ON System Restore.
  1. Follow the steps in the previous section, but in step 3, uncheck Turn off System Restore or Turn off System Restore on all drives. Then click OK.
  2. Create new System Restore points.


(Windows ME)
c:\_RESTORE\TEMP\….

See the following link for instructions:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ts ... ec_doc_nam




To reduce the re-infection potential for malware and protect your PC against spyware, here are a few helpful suggestions:

  1. Keep Windows and Internet Explorer current with the latest critical security updates from Microsoft . This will patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer . You CANNOT complete this update using an alternate browser – you must use Internet Explorer.
    http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v5co...t.aspx?ln=en-us
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp

  2. Run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep its definitions up-to-date. If you are thinking about switching (using a real-time AV tool only one at a time), there are some good free Antivirus programs that are decent, including AVG and Avast!.
    AVG: http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1
    Avast: http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

  3. In addition to using Ad-aware, consider using another free malware scanning/removal program :
    Adaware SE: http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Person...ubj=dl&tag=top5
    Spybot S&D: http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Dest...tml?tag=lst-0-1
    MS Antispyware beta: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/s...re/default.mspx

  4. Consider using a free firewall if you are not already using one (use only one firewall at a time – normally you will need to disable the MS firewall). Some good free ones (for incoming and added outgoing traffic protection) are:
    Kerio Personal Firewall: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/Kerio.cfm
    *** After 30 days, Kerio shuts down selected features, but will continue to run in 'free' mode.
    Zone Alarm: http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/znalm/comparison.jsp?lid=ho_za

    It is not a bad idea to also consider using a Router/Hardware firewall device where you have a High-Speed Internet access connection. A software firewall may occasionally need to be disabled or it gets/remains disabled by someone or something. Such an added layer of security consistency has a lot of merit to it.

  5. Consider using an alternate free browser for general web surfing but you must use IE for windows updates.
    Mozilla Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

  6. Consider increasing your browser security by using these programs:
    SpywareGuard will help protect your homepage from being hijacked: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html
    SpywareBlaster will increase browser protection by blocking access to thousands of known malware sites by adding them to IE's restricted sites zone. It essentially blocks known- bad ActiveX program items from being installed or running on your computer. Download it here: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

  7. A HOSTS file can block Internet access to thousands of known-bad sites by not allowing you any easy browser access to such sites knowingly or unknowingly. Use HJT to determine if a current HOSTS file exists and any contents therein:
    • Run the HiJackThis tool and select ‘Open the Misc Tools section’.
    • Next select ‘Open host file manager’ button.
    • Use the ‘Open in Notepad’ button in XP/W2K or use WORDPAD if necessary [type wordpad.exe in the RUN box (Start>Run)] and load the FILE PATH identified in HJT.
    • Go to http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt . # Read the initial instructions #. Copy and paste (append or replace) the RELEVANT host address entry contents of that file into Notepad or Wordpad and save the updated file contents.

*Remember just like your primary anti-virus software, it is important to:
  • Keep all of these programs up-to-date, and
  • Use them on a regular basis.

Is there any advantage to buying virus protection

I have Norton AV (NAV) on my system (but auto-updates have stopped working and can't resolve it) and Mcafee (3 month trial) on my laptop. I have put AVG on other people's PC without anyone's regret .

The main difference for paid versions beside bloatware and generally better and more timely detection rates is the convenience of the automatic update feature and possibly better protection features overall. I can't get AVG to do autoupdates - it must be done manually for the free version. And, for some users that can be dangerous because of lack of timely attention to such updates.


My current favorite is NOD32 (extremely innovative features and exceptional detection rates and methodologies). I will be updating both my PCs to this quite soon. The user screen is a little quirky but you very soon forget it is even there:

You can try this TRIAL version for 30 days (disable or uninstall AVG before loading)
