Hi all
I'm new here. I hope this is the right place to post this.

Here's my log. I'd be grateful if you could analyse it and let me know what I could get rid of and particularly how.

I've got a few questions that might/might not have anything to do with what comes up on my log

1) I'm running Avast and in the last few scans it has found a worm called Pdfka-jv, and a virus called lansetm.exe
Apparently the antivirus has deleted them as not present today. However, the fact that it has detected Pdfka-jv twice now suggests to me that i'm picking it up somewhere i visit on the internet regularly -always safe sites as far as i know- or that my pc might have a vulnerability.
Now although i'm not a techie i'm quite conscious when it comes to computer security, so i'm wondering if there might be a backdoor or something that my antivirus is not picking up.
2) I'm particularly concerned by the ArcSoft entries. This software is the one I use to edit my pictures. I've blocked its access to internet on ZoneAlarm, however, it seems to be still connecting to the internet somewhow?
3) The Yahoo entries. I used to be a victim -sorry, client- of BT, not anymore. They might be a remnant from the hideous partnership between BT and Yahoo. Can i delete them without causing any trouble to my internet browsing?
4) Skype. I've got it there just in case.
5) HP entries. All I need is to run my HP printer and, very occassionally, the scanner. I don't publish pictures with on the internet with my HP printer or anything else. Do I need all those entries for just being able to print?

I hope these questions make sense

Further info: As you can see on the log, I've got XP Professional as operating system, Avast as antivirus, ZoneAlarm as firewall, Adaware and CWShredder as anti-spyware

Hi MayContainNuts, and Welcome to SWI

Sorry it has taken so long to get to you, but the board has been very busy lately, and all the Helpers here are volunteers.

I suggest printing out each set of instructions and reading the entire post before proceeding. It will make following them easier. Please follow the directions in the order listed.

Why have you never updated your Windows XP installation to Service Pack 3? Until you do that, and install all the security related updates since then, your system will be needlessly vulnerable. Don't do that yet through, we need to be certain the system is clean first; installing a service pack on an infected system can cause a mess.

As you can see on the log, I've got XP Professional as operating system, Avast as antivirus, ZoneAlarm as firewall, Adaware and CWShredder as anti-spyware

I would recommend Spybot Search & Destroy over Adaware. You can remove CWShredder, its no longer useful.

Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
  • Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
  • Under Browsing History, click the Delete button.
    - For IE 7:
  • In the window that opens, click the Delete all button.
  • When prompted, place a check in: "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons.", click Yes.
- For IE8:
  • In the window that opens place a checkmark in all options.
  • Click the Delete and OK buttons.
Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):
  • Go to Tools > Options > Privacy.
  • Click "clear your recent history".
  • Go to the Advanced tab, and click the Clear Now button
  • Click OK to close the Options window
Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin
  • Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click OK.
  • Let it scan your system for files to remove.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  • Press OK to remove them.
You mentioned the Yahoo1 entries. Some are legitimate but are leftover entries with files missing, some of them however are not legitimate entries.

I recommend optionally uninstalling ZoneAlarm's Spy Blocker Toolbar. It doesn't actually block any spyware, and it's run by the questionable search engine Ask.com. You can read more about Ask.com here. If you decide to uninstall it, go to Control Panel's Add or Remove Programs, and uninstall the following program if found:
ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker Toolbar

Then using Windows Explorer, delete the following folder if still there:
C:\Program Files\AskBarDis

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
    • If the program won't start, go to MBAM's program folder (normally C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware), rename mbam.exe to a random file name (keep the .exe extension) and double-click on it to start the program.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy & Paste the entire report in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.
Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


Now you need to run HijackThis and click "Do a system scan only." Place a check next to the following entries (if they are still there):

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://uk.red.client...fo/bt_side.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://uk.red.client...fo/bt_side.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://uk.red.client...arch.yahoo.com/
R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\Installs\cpn\yt.dll (file missing)
O2 - BHO: Yahoo! Toolbar Helper - {02478D38-C3F9-4EFB-9B51-7695ECA05670} - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\Installs\cpn\yt.dll (file missing)
O2 - BHO: SidebarAutoLaunch Class - {F2AA9440-6328-4933-B7C9-A6CCDF9CBF6D} - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\browser\YSidebarIEBHO.dll (file missing)
O3 - Toolbar: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\Installs\cpn\yt.dll (file missing)


If you uninstalled ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker Toolbar as recommended, also check (if still there):
O2 - BHO: ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker BHO - {F0D4B231-DA4B-4daf-81E4-DFEE4931A4AA} - C:\Program Files\ZoneAlarmSB\bar\1.bin\SPYBLOCK.DLL
O3 - Toolbar: ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker - {F0D4B239-DA4B-4daf-81E4-DFEE4931A4AA} - C:\Program Files\ZoneAlarmSB\bar\1.bin\SPYBLOCK.DLL


Now close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner

Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.

Click on the Accept button and install any components it needs.
  • The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer.
  • This will start the program and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • In the drop down box labeled Files of type change the type to Text file.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
  • Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Please post a new Hijackthis log, the log from MBAM, the log from Security Check (checkup.txt), and in a second reply (to be sure noting is cut off by the maximum post size limit), the log from Kaspersky's online scan, and note any errors encountered.
