Ran current AdAware, Spybot and CWShredder. Finds and cleans up a lot. Then a few hours later, the system is slow again, run them all again and AdAware and Spybot find new stuff. I am not getting to the root of the problem! Here is hijackthis log:
Thank you.

:) Being your first post - I get the honour and privilege of welcoming you to our corner of the world where spyware has met it's match - Welcome.

Just so that you know you are not being ignored - I will handle this case for you but I need to ask for your patience while I review the log

Please keep an eye on this message for a resolution shortly.

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 aailable 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.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete once => Click Task Manager => Click the Processes tab => Double-click the Image Name column header to alphabetically sort the processes => Scroll through the list and look for "blengine.exe". If you find the file, click it, and then click End Process => Exit the Task Manager.

Download and run this Peper Trojan uninstaller from here.. Once it's finished downloading, and while remaining online, double click it and let it install and run until it's finished. Run it a second time, before rebooting and still online.

Reboot, run the peper removal time one final time

Run HijackThis and delete the following (If still present):
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nmPNgI] C:\documents and settings\ashley rutgers\local settings\temp\nmPNgI.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [4##CB793KB#DQ8] C:\WINDOWS\System32\Tgaf54Nv.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dsi] C:\WINDOWS\System32\dp-him.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [jmmbpzvnkry] C:\WINDOWS\System32\fezdpa.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BLMessagingIntegration] C:\Program Files\Common Files\PSD Tools\blengine.exe
O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://207.188.7.150...ip/RdxIE601.cab
O16 - DPF: {FDDCE9FF-1FC6-413C-80B1-37B101FDA1D4} - http://download.budd...llInstaller.cab

The following are resource hogs and are optional to delete:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?

Please cleanup temporary files etc. Browse to and select all contents in the following folders (Windows may be WINNT or WIN98 etc.), and delete (Make sure to delete the sub-folders, but not the Temp folders themselves!):
  • C:\Windows\Temp (all contents)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files (all contents) <=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 (all contents)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files(all contents)
  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp (all contents)
  • Empty your "Recycle Bin".
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\Tgaf54Nv.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\dp-him.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\fezdpa.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\PSD Tools\blengine.exe
Reboot again and log in normally, repost a new HijackThis log into this message for further review.

Thanks for your reply.
Could not find Twain-Tec in add/remove programs - deleted twaintec.dll
Could not find twaintec.ini

Could not find blengine.exe as active process

Ran Peper Trojan uninstaller as requested - just a black box came up and went away.

Ran HJT and selected and deleted specified entries

In safe mode deleted all but dp-him.exe and blengine.exe - could not find them.

Here is the most resent HJT log

We still need to delete the following entries in HijackThis:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [4##CB793KB#DQ8] C:\WINDOWS\System32\Zubxk.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [prwhyf] C:\WINDOWS\System32\fezdpa.exe

Some of the following O16 entries are coming back unknown - It is safe to delete all of them as they might be causing the repetitious problem. If the O16 entry is needed, it will simply get installed again the next time you visit the relevant site.

Done as requested, but I think he is back. Here is the log:

I think the nasty is the following line:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [4##CB793KB#DQ8] C:\WINDOWS\System32\OyzG.exe
Thing is, I "fix" it and it comes right back. There must be another process spawning it.
I will try doing it in safe mode.

This line (O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [4##CB793KB#DQ8] C:\WINDOWS\System32\OyzG.exe)indicates a peper infection ... Can you run through the following again...
Download and run this Peper Trojan uninstaller from here.. Once it's finished downloading, and while remaining online, double click it and let it install and run until it's finished. Run it a second time, before rebooting and still online.

Then have a look for the file and if it is in your system, delete it. Don't forget to remove the entry from HijackThis as well.

Reboot, run the peper removal time one final time

I don't get much satisfaction from that peper uninstaller. Just a black box that pops up and away. But I followed your instructions anyway.

Then I brought it up in safe mode, ran HJT and "Fixed" the 04 entry in question.
Deleted the file from the system32 directory.

Have rebooted a few times and ran HJT. That entry, or one that looks like it, has not come back yet. Could be fixed! I will leave the machine on for a few hours and see if it comes back. Will post again later on to give you my results.

Thank you for your efforts. How do you guys get paid? Or is this a labor of love/hate? Whatever it is, you need to be congratulated for your efforts.

How would you like to be the one who throws tomatoes at the authors of this crap?
I would cheer you on.

I am glad it is resolved - Let's hope it stays that way. How do we get paid - We don't, actually. It is simply somethign that I enjoy doing - Others may have different reasons?

Let me know if it comes back - Also, as a final word I reccommend:
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.
