Chris,

Talk about going into the bowels of the computer. Boy, I hope I did a good job!!

There were two files I did not find.
1- C:\WINDOWS\lpih.dll
2 - C:WINDOWS|SYTEM32\ieug32.exe

I did everything else and here are the results.

BTW when I rebooted in normal mode I got an alert from Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta 1 that CoolWebSearch was trying to install itself. I told it to remove it and it is supposedly was successfully removed by the program. You tell me?

Thanks again for everything and I hope I did a good job!!

Ok - looks good - but we have a couple of steps.


About Buster - you have update 19 on the last run - it is now at 23.

Run it again - and when it opens us the update so you have that latest signature file.

Then run and post back with a new log of that and a new hijackthis log.

Fix this line in HJT

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\lpbih.dll/sp.html#28129

do it in safe mode - and ensure that all the anti-malware programs are not running.

Run CWShredder and About Buster again.

Post back with the About Buster log and the new HJT log.

I think one of your anti-malware programs stopped that last removal properly removing that last line.

Chris,

I tried to fix the R1 line in safe mode but when I restarted I got a yellow warning from the Anitspyware about it getting back in. So I did a fix in normal mode and it seems to be gone. I even restarted to make sure it would not come back again.

So, here are the logs you requested:

Copy the contents of the Quote Box below to Notepad.
Name the file as fix.reg
Change the Save as Type to All Files
Save this file on the desktop


REGEDIT4


[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\HSA]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SE]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SW]


Then double-click on the fix.reg file, and when it prompts to merge say yes, and this will clear some registry entries left behind by the process.

Next Step
Reboot your computer back to normal mode so that we can restore see if we need to restore some deleted files:

  • This infection delete the windows file, shell.dll.

    If you are using XP,2000, or NT please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations ((%windir% being thelocation you installed windows):

    %windir%\system32
    %windir%\system

    If you are using Windows 98/ME please download shell.dll from here: shell98-dll.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being thelocation you installed windows):

    %windir%\system
  • Download the Hoster from here. Press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program. This will restore the original deleted Hosts file.
  • If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file. Go here: Merijn's Files (sdhelper) and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy). Then click Start > Run > regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SDHelper.dll" and press the OK button
  • If you are using Windows 95, 98, or ME it is possible that the malware deleted your control.exe. Please check for the existence of this file by going to to Merijn Files control.exe and examine where the file should be for your operating system. If the file is missing then download the appropriate file and place it in the proper place according to this information.

Last Step

Run an online antivirus scan at:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/

Reboot and post a fresh hijackthis log (This should be the last one)

Can't find.....

Unread postby Perkypen » February 11th, 2005, 1:46 pm

I went to the link but I can't find SDHelper.dll anywhere. Maybe I am just missing it. Can I delet Spybot S & D and download new? There currently is an SDHelper.dll file in there - is it bad?

Also, the shell.dll file was still in both of those locations. Should I replace it? The one I have now is newer.

Let me know what to do.

Thanks,
Penny

If the file is still thier - it should be OK - this infection just sometimes deletes it.

If you need that file a reinstall would do it - of follow that link and on the left of the page -'windows Files' - that link has the files that get deleted.

As that is all done - I would like to see a new log, but would expect it all to be clean now - you might like this message.

======================

This is my normal post for when you are clear - which you now are - or seem to be. Please advise of any problems you still have :-

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

  1. Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.
    You can find instructions on how to enable and re enable system restore here:
    Managing Windows Millennium System Restore
    or
    Windows XP System Restore Guide
    re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above
  2. Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:

    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.

      1. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      2. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      3. Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      4. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      5. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      6. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      7. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      8. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    5. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  3. Use an Anti Virus 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 this link for a listing of some on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
    Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
  4. Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive 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.
  5. Use a Firewall - I can not stress 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
  6. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. 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.
  7. Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
    This will provide real-time spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  8. Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  9. Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
    Computer Safety on line - Anti-Malware
  10. Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

May your God go with you..
