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:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MICROSOFT CONFIGS 32] msgconfigrs.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [MICROSOFT CONFIGS 32] msgconfigrs.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MICROSOFT CONFIGS 32] msgconfigrs.exe

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\msgconfigrs.exe

Where is mspool.exe? Can't seem to find it on system

If you click on a blank area of the desktop and then press the 'F3' key, a file search dialogue box will appear.
  • Please ensure that your selected setting allows you to search for and find hidden files.
  • Ensure that you set the 'Look in:' box to C:\ so that it can search the COMPLETE DIRECTORY for any and all matches for the filename of interest. Copy the complete filepath of or navigate to any matching found files into JOTTI and submit each found instance for scanning.

Cannot open Mozilla, but can open all other browsers

Unread postby Dquixote1217 » January 15th, 2006, 5:07 am

I suddenly lost Mozilla and tried everything I could think of, including your detailed instructions. I did get Mozilla back one, with hangup glitches, when I installed the version with the Google Toolbar, but now cannot even do that.

Previously, AVG kept notifying me of a backdoor trojan:

Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic2.CBG
C:\windows\system32\avpi32.dll

and it seemed to happen for some reason as soon as I opened Paint Shop Pro 8.0 - but after following your instructions, that no longer happens. Can I at least retrieve my bookmarks? This is killing me!

THere are no apparent remaining issues in your HJT log.


Can I at least retrieve my bookmarks?

Try the following links for guidance:

Thanks for all your help Vincent.
I didn't ask about bookmarks. Was that for someone else?

Was responding to your post:

Posted: Sun 15 Jan, 2006 5:07 am Post subject: Cannot open Mozilla, but can open all other browsers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I suddenly lost Mozilla and tried everything I could think of, including your detailed instructions. I did get Mozilla back one, with hangup glitches, when I installed the version with the Google Toolbar, but now cannot even do that.

Previously, AVG kept notifying me of a backdoor trojan:

Trojan horse BackDoor.Generic2.CBG
C:\windows\system32\avpi32.dll

and it seemed to happen for some reason as soon as I opened Paint Shop Pro 8.0 - but after following your instructions, that no longer happens. Can I at least retrieve my bookmarks? This is killing me!





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.



ONLY ONCE your are as clean as possible from any needed cleanup steps - 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

      http://www.securityfocus.com/news/11273
      If you surf to questionable (and unblocked) parts of the Web, you could encounter sites that compromise your PC without any user interaction. In experiments [reported Aug 2005], Microsoft identified 752 specific addresses owned by 287 Web sites that contain programs able to install themselves on a completely unpatched Windows XP system. Also, be aware that the WinXP Service Pack 2 was an update that focused almost exclusively on security. Also reported was that a fully patched Windows XP SP2 system cannot be compromised by any such discovered rogue Web sites.

  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.
