Hi

Iíve been experiencing pop-up problems and have tried as best I can on my own to solve it but itís beyond me. Please can someone help?

My setup-
Operating System; Windows XP/ Home edition/ version 2002/ service pack 1
Anti-virus software; Trend micro/ (PC-Cillin) Internet Security/ Version 11
Anti-spyware; Spybot S&D/ version 1.3.0.12 AND Ad-Aware 6.0/ build 6.181
HijackThis v1.97.7
I use AOL (UK Version 9) as my main internet access but also have another dialup account with Tiscali.co.uk which uses M$ internet explorer

I have read (and tried to follow the advice in) the FAQ before posting this.

My problem-
Shortly after starting up my computer my dialup connection window appears asking if I want to connect (via Tiscali/ie). On one occasion I connected to see where it was trying to open and an internet explorer window opened to an ad for the worldís largest casino (www.888.com). I normally just close this window but even then at regular intervals after this I get a prompt that the web page Iíve requested is not available offline and do I want to connect. (it has just done this again as I am typing this!)

If I am connected to the internet (on AOL) again at regular intervals various popups with ads will appear. These will be in separate internet explorer/Tiscali windows, not the AOL windows, and normally appear in groups.

On trying to get rid of this nuisance I have found several culprits lurking in my system, including Vx2/Roings/Tvmedia. I have gone through several cycles of updating and running my Trend micro virus checker/ SpyBot S&D/ AD-Aware and always take the recommended actions. I have regularly deleted all cookies and temporary internet files. I have followed as best I can the advice from AOL for using Trend micro's firewall to run with the AOL.

Currently I have, today, on latest updates, Got SpyBot showing ďno threatsĒ, Ad-aware showing nothing and Trend micro finding no virus/ Trojan or anything else. Yet still the problem persists.

If youíve managed to stay with me as you have read through my ramblings can you help please? I will include a Hijack this log below. I have limited knowledge, with the sheer mention of Registry sending me into a cold sweat, so please be gentle with me!

Thanks :scratchhead:

Hello....is this thing on?...

BUMP

I am being patient, but after 24 hrs with no replies I read the "bear with us" thread and have followed the advice in it (ie "bump" reply if >12hr wait) and posted this.

Maybe it's just me but this always also happens when I try to get served at a bar...

Thanks for looking

  • Look in "Add/Remove Programs" for any program named "WebHnacer", "WebHancer Survey" etc and uninstall if listed.
  • Please create a new directory C:\HJT and move the HijackThis.exe file into that directory and only run it from there. That way we can ensure that we have the backup files available in the event that they are needed.
  • We need to remove a program called "Twain-Tec". To do this, first you need to disable System restore as per the instructions at here . Twiantec.dll is a transponder. HijackThis will detect it as a BHO but it must not be removed using HijackThis. This is because of the remaining registry entries and files which can be dangerous. Instead the following method of removal is preferable and complete:
    Go to "Add/Remove Programs" => Uninstall "Twain-Tech". Reboot the computer to SAFE mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?. Delete twaintech.dll and twaintec.ini If twaintech.dll is in use, then you would need to rename it, reboot the computer, and then delete it.
  • Run HijackThis, click on "Scan" and then place a check mark in the following boxes, And click on "Fix Checked":

  • Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?
  • The following FILES, DIRECTORIES and DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory) need to be deleted while in safe mode. Make sure your settings allow you to view "Hidden files". Open up any explorer windows and click on "Tools" => "Folder Options" => "View" and be sure to check off "Show Hidden Files and Folders". If the files etc listed are not present - Do not worry, just delete those that you can find. If no path is listed, you may need to search for the file(s) - To search, click on "Start" => "Search" => "For Files and Folders" => "All Files and Folders" and type in the file name. You can delete it right from the search results window.
    • DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory)
      • C:\Windows\Temp\
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ <=This will delete all your cached internet content including cookies. This is recommended and strongly suggested.
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\
      • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\
      • Empty your "Recycle Bin"
    • DIRECTORIES
      • C:\Program Files\TV Media\
      • C:\Program Files\webHancer\
    • FILES
      • C:\WINDOWS\rehd.dll
      • Dit.exe
      • C:\WINDOWS\rxyvr.exe
  • Enable System restore as per the instructions at here .
  • Reboot again and log in normally, repost a new HijackThis log into this message for further review.

Thanks for the help. I followed your directions as best as possible. (Pretty scary stuff when you don't know what you're doing!!) Many of the files etc. were not there but I removed those that were found. Initial (tentative) indications are good. So far, popups and dialup prompts not appearing. New HJT log below for further review as requested. How does this look now?

Thanks again

The log is looking good :)

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.

Once again, many thanks. Things seem to have got back to normal. I've had the computer on for about an hour and so far no interuptions of any form. I couldn't have done it without your help. Thankyou for your time and effort on these forums. I'm now in the process of downloading the extra safeguards you have suggested. :wave:

Thanks, keep up the good work!
