Posted 13 July 2004 - 09:09 PM

I have been battling some spyware picked up probably a month ago. I have run McAfee's virus scan and spyware scan, Ad-Aware's scan and Hijack This (log file to follow)

Whenever I open any program (Microsoft or not), the windows installer comes up and it appears as though it is attempting to install Microsoft Office XP (which I have installed). Now that I finally have my internet homepage re-directed, each time this happens I get a message that something has attempted to change my web settings and the option to reject the changes (thank you, McAfee) I believe that if I did not reject the changes, my homepage would be changed to res://cbrnb.dll/index.html#37049. Further, when I am on the web, I get pop-ups with a title bar of "Only the Best".

Here is my second log file:

I also ran the scan last night and removed some items. Here is the first file:

When I ran Hijack This, I "fixed" several of the R1 and R0 entries that refer to the undesireable web page and it's dll. I also had some of the BHO's listed as spyware -- which I fixed, and I notice they are no longer showing up in the list. I was not able to determine which of the O4 files needed fixed. Also, after I fixed the R1 and R0 files, they just came back after I opened another program and the Windows Installer attempted to do it's thing.

There is one remaining BHO I was not able to find on the list. It refers to C:\Windows\System32\addgh.dll.

Finally, I keep losing the shell.dll out of my C:\Windows\System32 directory. I have some old software (has not been recently updated) that uses this file in this location. Don't know if it's related or not, but it seems like it started happening at about the same time.

Actually, I didn't realize how long the Ad-Aware log is. I will send it if required, but it showed that I have CoolWebSearch. I "fixed it", and CWShredder didn't seem to find anything, but from the Hijack This log, it looks like I am still infected. Here is the order of programs I ran before running the log above:
- McAfee Spyware search (nothing found)
- Updated AdAware and ran (found CoolWebSearch)
- Looked for updates to CWShredder, didn't find any, ran (nothing found)
- Ran Hijack This, didn't fix anything

I have my web page to the point where I am controlling where it goes, but every time I open something it attempts to re-direct. I am still getting pop-ups on the internet, and I am still losing my Shell.dll file.

Hello please download About:Buster and unzip it to your desktop. Donīt run it yet.

1 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 # : 01R333 18.07.2004 or higher listed.

2 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.

3. 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. This service is installed by the malware. If this service is not listed go ahead with the next step.

Thanks for your help and quick response.

Below is the hijack this log. I was unable to save the About:Buster log. When I ran it, everything on my desktop disappeared, and neither the start button or local file button on my keyboard was responsive. There were several things that it corrected.

Good job.

This program BackWeb lets you connect directly to sites offering specials on hp paper ink etc. Its not nessessary and to SWI is adware.
If you want to be in contact or get advertisements Ok just reinstall this component from the printer's cd or remove it thru add/remove in control panel and fix the registry entry with hjt:
O4 - Global Startup: Updates from HP.lnk = C:\Program Files\Updates from HP\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.

And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place?

Good luck :D
