Hello Dareos,

Let's put aside the Kaspersky scan then. When it does not want to work there isn't much one can do about it.

That winsock2.2.exe is a strange one, the entry doesn't even show up in Runonce anymore. It should be hooked up into explorer.exe at boot ... It looks like it got deleted somehow.

I just would like to be sure that it isn't hidden by a rootkit. Can you please perfom the following:

Download Rootkit Revealer to your desktop or usual download folder.
http://www.sysinternals.com/utilities/r ... ealer.html

Create a folder for RkR on the C: drive called C:\RkR, do NOT run it from your Desktop.
You can do this by going to My Computer then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it RkR. Extract all the files from the zip archive into that folder. Close all programs and run Rootkit Revealer. Don't open Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer or apllications otherwise the log will be full of junk entries and Rootkit Revealer might crash. When the scan is done, click File > Save and save the report to the RkR folder (not your Desktop or RkR will hang). Post it in your reply please.

If any protection barks about a new service being added, allow it please. It's not malicious, it's Rootkit Revealer that needs to run as a service.

Please post the RkR log and a new HijackThis log for review please.

Kim

Hello Dareos,

No, not at all. It happens rather frequently. Did you try to run it in Safe Mode ? Don't do anything else while the scan is running. Launch it, wait 20 seconds and click on scan. Leave it running. When done, Click File > Save and save the log to the RkR folder you did create. Make sure that it does NOT run from the desktop or it will crash.

Let me know if that works ok. :)

Ok, let's try something bigger then, I always try to install a minimum of applications but to be honest the more scans fail, the more I tend to check for rootkits because it's a typical symptom when a rootkit is installed. So let's try this one and hope that the results are negative tho. :)

Download Blacklight Beta from here:
http://www.f-secure.com/blacklight/try.shtml
  • Hit I accept. It will take you to download page.
  • Download blbeta.exe and save it to the Desktop.
  • Once saved... double click blbeta.exe to install the program.
  • Click accept agreement and Click scan
    This app too may fire off a warning from antivirus. Let the driver load.
    Wait for it to finish.
  • If it displays any items...don't do anything with them yet. Just hit exit (close)
  • It will drop a log on Desktop that starts with fsbl....big number
    Please post contents of log.

Hello Dareos,

Sorry for not getting back earlier to you, I was kinda busy and overlooked a little bit your problem. :oops:

You are right, everything is clear and no rootkit on board. :) At least we are sure now.

Please reset System Restore to remove eventual backups of the spyware and trojans.

Turn off System Restore
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the System Restore tab.
  3. Select the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
  4. Click Yes when you receive the prompt to the turn off System Restore.
Reboot your computer.

Turn System Restore back on
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the System Restore tab.
  3. Clear the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
A new restore point will be created automatically.
______________________________

Hide your system files again.
  1. Click Start.
  2. Click My Computer.
  3. Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  4. Select the View Tab.
  5. Under the Hidden files and folders heading uncheck Show hidden files and folders.
  6. Check the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  7. Click Yes to confirm.
  8. Click OK.
______________________________

Sometimes when scans are difficult to run, you may have some errors on the HDD. It would be a good idea to check that and to defrag the HDD. Follow the instructions below to perform this. Note, this operation may take some time and it is advised to do nothing else when you optimize the HDD.

Click Start > Run > type chkdsk /f and hit enter. If you are using the NTFS system, you'll get a message that the volume is locked. It will ask you to run at next boot, anwser yes and close the CMD window. Reboot your computer and wait untill you see the desktop again. (It will reboot automatically just after the check)

When done, click on My Computer, select Local Disk (C), Right click to bring up the menu and click on Properties and go to Tools tab. Click on Defragment now and click on the Defragment button in the next window. This may take some time. Relax and have a cup of coffee or tea.
______________________________

Now that you are clean, 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.

    • 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.

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.

WinPatrol FAQ

SiteHound by Firetrust

Firetrust introduces the SiteHound Toolbar - the safe way to browse the Internet. With SiteHound, when you browse the Internet, you're shown a warning page every time you go to a site which is a known scam, potentially loads viruses or spyware on to your computer, has questionable content or anything you would not consider reasonable. You are shown a warning page with information about that site. From there you can choose to enter the site or go back. SiteHound is a free add-on to Internet Explorer. (Users of Firefox - a version for you is coming soon.) SiteHound's comprehensive database gathers the knowledge from other users and respected experts from the online security community to tell you which sites are real and which are bogus.

SiteHound will alert you when you enter a site which is known to contain:
  • Fraudulent claims or scams
  • Offensive material
  • Security vulnerabilities
  • Spyware or Adware
  • Spam related material
  • or other content deemed to be unsafe
Specifically, SiteHound blocks these categories:

• Adult • Spyware • Spam Advertising • Phishing • Possible scam or fraud • Misleading or False Advertising

System Requirements:
Internet Explorer 5.5+ and Windows 95/98/NT 4/ME/2000/XP

Product Info & Download: SiteHound Toolbar

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

Finally, after following up on all these recommendations, why not run Jason Levine's Browser Security Tests ?
They will provide you with an insight on how vulnerable you might still be to a number of common exploits.

How is your computer behaving now ? Any troubles left ?

sorry it took a while to get back, RL took over from my online life for a time there.

My comp appears to be running far more smoothly than before, a lot less seemingly random hard drive activity, games are not lagging anywhere near as much (cept when sound is an issue, but i have a faulty soundcard, thats a separate issue). Internet usage is faster and overall the comps perfomance is far superior.

Thankyou so much for your help with this Kimberly, you are an absolute angel =)

I learned a lot from this, hope i can keep it clear from now on.

Hello Jonny,

No worries, RL is more important. Nice to hear that the computer is running better now and we are glad that we could assist you.

If you are playing a lot of games, it would be nice to perform a defrag of your HDD once and a while (let's say once a week or so). It will keep you files organised and when performed regulary, it will take less time.

It's true, not much you can do about a faulty soundcard except changing it. In some cases a new set of drivers may resolve some issues but not always. (Had the same problem a few years ago)

Take care and happy surf :)

its really only the one game, World of Warcraft on the Terenas Server (if anyone here plays).

as for the soundcard, i shut down the comp with the mic too near the monitor and the volume rather loud, feedback appears to have burnt something out, now it stutters whenever i play anything other than directly from CD, and theres a mark that looks suspiciously like a burn mark on the PCI slot its plugged into, methinks its a new card and diff slot time hehe.

New comp in a couple months, my first time building one, picking up the graphics card in the states in a month or so, and will start building then, looking forward to the experience.

It's great to build them yourself, you can pick up the hardware you prefer and Internet is a good place to look if any of your choices can give problems. :)

May I suggest something:

1. Get a maximum of updates & drivers before you are gonna install the new PC, burn them to a cd or place them on a usb key.

2. While installing the OS & the applications, stay away from internet until you did install a maximum of updates and until your antivirus & firewall are installed.

3. When the install is done, see if you can make a backup of it using a program like Ghost or Arconis backup. In that way if something goes wrong (a heavy infection for example), you don't have to start it all over again.

Good luck and enjoy the build of your PC. :)
