HijackThis log is below
Having a lot of trouble lately with adware. SpySweeper takes care of most of it, but some persistent ones hang on and reappear after each reboot. Peper trojan, and VX2 Transponder are the persistent ones, sometimes others too. Had my first experience last night where an ad pops up before I even open explorer!
Also can anyone tell me how to get entries out of my MSCONFIG STARTUP file once a spyware program has put something in there? (I mean removing it, not just unchecking it) After removing the software, those entries were left behind.

Thanks in advance, I know you guys are busy. ;)

Thanks for quick response, I forgot to metion a couple of the other repeating "infections". They are: Purity Scan, and Apropos.
I will try your suggestions tonight after work. Funny this old computer at work using Win-98 doesn't seem to get infected with anything. (No kids on net here either) ;)

New HJT Log is below.
When you said "use Add/Remove" to remove apropos, I assume you meant windows control panel "Add/Remove programs"? It was not there. Everything seems to be taken care of with possible exception of VX2. I ran the cleaner and it reported that the system was clean. Yet when I reboot SpySweeper reports that VX2 Transponder is running in memory. Yet no scans, SpySweeper or Adaware find anything when scanning ??? Could be I need to reinstall SpySweeper if this persists??? Do I have to run these scans for each user on this machine? (XPhome)

Thanks again for all the help!! You guys are great. DLTBW!! :D
Please review LOG anyway for what I may have missed.

OK apparently VX2 transponder is not gone, but everything else is. SpySweeper did find it when I let the scan run long enough. It is hard to see but looks like in my documents and settings area. Even though I quarantine it, it comes back after reboot. Adaware doesn't even find it (with vx2 cleaner installed) What to do?

Hi,
Close all open windows, except for HijackThis place a check in each of the following:
Then click "Fix checked".

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {87766247-311C-43B4-8499-3D5FEC94A183} - C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\WinTools\WToolsB.dll (file missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SCR6L5eR] C:\documents and settings\katie\local settings\temp\SCR6L5eR.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Digital Line Detect.lnk = ?
("?" = broken link)

Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode (see "How To" below)

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)
Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\tkoqdu.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\strntcls.exe <--this file

Restart normally and then ...

Adaware doesn't even find it (with vx2 cleaner installed)

http://www.lavasoft....x2cleaner.shtml
The plug-in has been updated accordingly to allow for removal of this update.
The new version number is 1.01

Let's run a different Vx2 Cleaner ...

Download > VX2Finder
Run Vx2Finder click on the Click to find VX2.BetterInternet button.
Then click Make log. Generates: "vx2.log"

If detected, proceed with the below:

Posted Image Important!
Sign off and stay off the internet until the entire procedure is complete.

Open VX2Finder again
Click on the "click to find VX2.BetterInternet" button.

Then select the "Delete these files" button.
You will be left with notice about one to be deleted on reboot.
It will ask to reboot on deletion of the last file (Reboot)

Once back in Windows ...

Open VX2Finder again and click on these buttons down the right side:

User Agent, Guardian.reg, Restore Policy (OK each prompt)

Exit and reboot.

Run Vx2Finder once more
click on the "click to find VX2.BetterInternet" button.
Then click "Make log".

Post the contents of "vx2.log" along with a fresh HijackThis log.

Do I have to run these scans for each user on this machine?

Yes, but let's get one user cleaned at a time ...

Sorry took so long to get back...could not get on your web site for several days, then I went on camping trip....anyway

I believe I have finally cleaned the system of all spyware. I just ran HJT again and will post log below. I followed procedure for all users and come up clean on all scans (Adaware and SpySweeper) for each. I got strange results from the VX2 cleaner, but it has not reappered since running it.
BTW what is tkoqdu.exe?

Hi,

I got strange results from the VX2 cleaner

Please explain ...

Go to Posted Image Kaspersky Test one file
Click Browse, navigate to C:\WINDOWS\System32\tkoqdu.exe
Highlight (single-click) and click Submit
Wait for the results, if "detected\infected" copy and paste the info.

Do the same here:
http://virusscan.jotti.dhs.org/

Next:

Close all open windows, rescan with HijackThis
Place a check in each of the following then click "Fix checked".

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lvkxiew] C:\WINDOWS\System32\tkoqdu.exe

Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode [required step - see "How To" below]

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)
Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\tkoqdu.exe <--this file

After the above, reboot, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log ...

1. tkoqdu.exe had already been deleted as per previous instructions. I guess that "lvkxiew" line in the HJT log got by me somehow. I was mainly asking what it was, I had never seen it before.

2. VX2 cleaner - the strange result was that after I ran it, there were no files listed for deleting. However, since running it it is no longer found by any scanner as "running in memory"

3. Found something called NDrv.exe for one user in the HJT log. I searched for the file and couldn't find it. I therefore checked to FIX this line in HJT and it was deleted. DO you know what this is?

4. Scanned each user with adaware and spy sweeper - all clear.

New log:

Hi,
Your log looks clean now ... good job!

Last Step:

"Flush System Restore" (see "How To" below)
Basically turn off System Restore, reboot, run a full (updated) NAV scan, reboot and turn System Restore back on and create a new Restore Point.

How To: Configure Norton AntiVirus to scan all files

I would suggest adding some "Defense" to your system ...

Have already flushed restore. I turn it off whenever I know there is infection present.

Many Thanks! Give yourself a pat on the back! :bounce:
