Hi All...

I have read the FAQ, upgraded my Spybot to v1.3 and scanned, rebooted, and created a Hijack This log.

Although it's not "as" bad as it was before, I am still getting pop-ups even when I'm not online, most saying that they've detected spyware/ adware on my computer, and some others that just download crap whether you click "Yes" or "No".

This is an office computer, connected to a server and we have DSL and a firewall. I was under the impression that a firewall was supposed to block this junk from getting through in the first place!

I also have a "Mywebsearch" toolbar that keeps showing up - which I DON'T want.

Please review my log and let me know if there is anything else I need to get rid of. I know you're busy, and understand that it may take a while for someone to get back to me.

Thank you in advance! :wave:

Hello Not_A_Tech,

You have a few infections.
Please start by unzipping HijackThis to a folder other than your Desktop, and put it in a Permanent folder.
Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.
This will allow backups to be made and saved By hijackthis in case something goes wrong.
Follow this link http://www.netstar.me.uk/hjt/hjt.html if you need help.

______

There appears to be some CoolWeb infection. Please download the latest version of CWShredder here:
http://www.spywarein.../CWShredder.exe
Run it, then click "Fix" (not Scan only) and let it fix all the variants it finds.

Then Reboot.
______

You also show signs of a peper infection.
Please download the PeperFix.exe, a tool made by Option^Explicit, from here
http://downloads.sub...rg/PeperFix.exe
Click on the PeperFix.exe to launch it.
Click the Find and Fix button.
You will be prompted to reboot.

Reboot and it will delete the files.
______

Next, open Hijackthis, click Scan, then put a check next to the following entries:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\WINNT\system32\SearchBar.htm
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://server224.sma...earch/?new-hklm

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O2 - BHO: MyWebSearch Search Assistant BHO - {00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWay\SearchAt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL
O2 - BHO: mwsBar BHO - {07B18EA1-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [36F4SAZ3QJAFKE] C:\WINNT\System32\Qep78k1j.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WTSC] C:\WINNT\System32\wapisvcc.exe

O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://imgfarm.com/i...etup1.0.0.5.cab
O16 - DPF: {2B96D5CC-C5B5-49A5-A69D-CC0A30F9028C} (MiniBugTransporterX Class) - http://download.weat...Transporter.cab?
O16 - DPF: {87067F04-DE4C-4688-BC3C-4FCF39D609E7} - http://download.webs...51/QDow_AS2.cab


Now Close all open Windows and browsers (have only HJT open) and click "Fix Checked".

Then reboot to Safe Mode (tap F8 while restarting) and delete these Folders:

C:\Program Files\MyWay\
C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\

And this File:

C:\WINNT\System32\wapisvcc.exe

You may have to show hidden files:

Click Start.
Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab.
Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Click OK.

While still in Safe Mode, please re-run CWShredder.

Then, reboot normally, and post a new HJT log, and let us know how you made out.

Thanks for all your help! I have finally managed to be left along long enough to do all of this! I am including my new Hijack This log for you to review... I sure hope this gets rid of everything!

Once my PC is officially "clean", will I have to do this periodically to keep it that way, or should this be sufficient?

Thanks again!!! :wave:

Hello Not_A_Tech,

You're welcome. Your log looks clean. Good job! :thumbsup:

As for keeping your PC clean, here is some free protection you should consider:
Download and install:

SpywareBlaster will block bad ActiveX and malevolent cookies.

IESPYAD puts over 4000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

Check for updates occaisionally.

And also see So how did I get infected in the first place?


In addition to using Spybot, I recommend you use Ad-aware from: http://www.lavasoft.de/res/aaw6.exe

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

Posted Image Click on the Gear icon (second from the left) to access the preferences/settings window

1. In the General window make sure the following are selected:
  • Automatically save log-file
  • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
  • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
2. Click on the Scanning button on the left and select :
  • Scan Within Archives
  • Scan Active Processes
  • Scan Registry
  • Deep Scan Registry
  • Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
  • Scan my Hosts file
  • Under Click here to select drives + folders, choose:
  • All of your hard drives
Posted Image Click on the Advanced button on the left and select:
  • Include additional process information
  • Include additional file information
  • Include environment information
  • Include additional object details
Posted Image Click the Tweak button and select:
  • Under the Scanning Engine:
    • Unload recognized processes during scanning
    • Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
    • Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
  • Under the Cleaning Engine:
    • Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
Posted Image Click on Proceed to save the settings.

Posted Image Click Start and on the next screen choose Activate in-depth Scan at the bottom of the page and then choose:
  • Use Custom Scanning Options
Posted Image Click Next and Ad-aware will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected.

Posted Image Save the log file when it asks and then click Finish

Posted Image When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).

Posted Image Reboot your computer.

Stay safe! :wave:
