Posted 08 July 2004 - 08:38 PM

I'm having trouble with a hijacked browser - i've run ad-aware and spybot with up-to-date patterns and the home page of IE still keeps getting changed. It works fine under safe mode with networking (I'm running XP Home). I had a problem with something called wintime creating an irl file in a directory in program files called websiteviewer. i removed wintime using msconfig but still have hijacking probs. here's the startup log and hijack this log. thanks for the help.

First, Please make a new folder to put your HijackThis.exe into. Anywhere on your hard drive is fine other than your Desktop or the Temp folder. We suggest you use C:\Program Files\HijackThis but feel free to use any name or folder you like. Unzip HijackThis again and save the contents (Hijackthis.exe) to the new folder you made. Then navigate to it and run HijackThis from there. This is to ensure it makes the necessary backups for recovery if needed.

1. Download this tool called AboutBuster http://www.downloads...AboutBuster.zip

Unzip it to your desktop but don't run it yet.

2. You already have Adaware installed. Make sure it's up to date. Just open Adaware and click on *Check for Updates Now* and then *Connect*. It will find a new reference-file. Click *ok* and let it download and install the updates by clicking on *Finish* .This will return you to the main screen. You should now see Reference File # : 01R331 08.07.2004 or higher listed.

3. Print out these instructions so you have them handy as most of the steps need to be done in safe mode and you may not be able to go online.

4. Make sure your PC is configured to show hidden files

Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

5. Next, go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok

Scroll down and find the service called "Network Security Service". When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows.

6. Reboot to Safe Mode
How to start the computer in Safe mode

7. Scan with Hijack This and put checks next to all the following, then click "Fix Checked"

Thanks for the advice. the computer seems to work fine now. there were a number of entries that you said to click in hijackthis that weren't there. there were also some that were there that were similar to ones you said to get rid of but weren't identical. i left these because i know that telling hijackthis to get rid of the wrong thing can cause problems. the on-line scan showed some virus files that it said weren't cleanable. i compared these to a clean XP Home install and found that they weren't there in the clean one so i deleted them from the infected computer. they were:

C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-87.......-500\Dc1.exe
C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-87.......-500\Dc3.exe

Thanks for all the great feedback! Yes, you did right to ONLY delete the files listed and not similar file names (that is because malware often will mimic a valid file name to fool the user).

Next, we need to update your HijackThis tool. Open HijackThis.exe and press *config* {bottom right corner} and then press *Misc. Tools* at the top. Next press *check for online update* and you should see version 1.98.0 available. Download that.

P.S. If you have any problems getting the update. Simply delete your old version of HijackThis and download the new version from this link.

http://www.spywarein.../HijackThis.exe
..........................................................
Then, please also download this free program that will produce a different type of log I can see.

Download FINDnFIX.exe from here (choose *save* not "open with"): http://freeatlast.worldbreak.com/

Find the FINDnFIX icon on your desktop and doubleclick and choose *extract*.

Posted Image

This will place a new folder on your system at: C: FindnFIX which will open for you. Doubleclick on the !LOG!.bat

Posted Image

IMPORTANT! Before you run this tool please close ALL running programs and ALL open windows except for the FindnFix folder.

Relax, sit back and wait a few minutes while the program collects the necessary information.

Posted Image

*NOTE:If your AntiVirus is running a scriptblocker, when you run this tool, you will probably receive an alert warning you that the script is running. "Allow" the script to run.

When the program is finished it will open Notepad and produce a log.txt file. Copy and paste the contents of that log back here in a reply.

Also include a new log from a fresh scan of HijackThis with the new version 1.98.0
