Posted 27 May 2004 - 08:56 PM

My computer is getting slower by the day. Even running spybot now take 10 minutes. Getting constant pop-up even after I downloaded Cox's pop-up blocker.
Also getting the little "actulice" box at restart, usually about 10 to 15 before it will let me do anything.

Here is my log, please help me if someone can.

Thanks a bunch

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.

Close all programs and windows.

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 and delete the following (If still present):
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

The following are optional to delete as they are resource hogs:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE

All of the following can safely be deleted. I would strongly recommend that you do delete them and if the apps are needed again, the next time you visit the relevant site, they will simply get downloaded again.

PGPhantom,

I turned off the system restore and went to uninstall the Twaintech program and it was not listed in the programs I could uninstall.

What can I do now. I have printed your previous instruction, but will hold for further advice.

Thanks

Jon

PGPhantom,

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate everything you guys do out of kindness, or maybe even enjoyment.

I saw you were not online yet, so I proceeded tot teh next step and fixed some items in HJT, Some of the ones you said to fix were no longer there, however several odd named items were (with similar odd names like the ones you wanted to fix) I did not mess with them, but I just thought they may be changing thier names.

Also, HJT would not fix this, it did not give me an error, but when I re-scanned it was still there -

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll

Also, these two were not in HJT to be fixed:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Internet Explorer] C:\WINDOWS\System32\IEXPLORE.EXE

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [_932C] C:\WINDOWS\System32\_932C.exe

PLease reboot your computer into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?

Run HijackThis from safe mode and delete:
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sr1exe] "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Dell\Alert\252\updtSup3.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [jmcyjs] C:\WINDOWS\System32\fmjsda.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [alchem] C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TLA] C:\WINDOWS\System32\TLA.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [_874C] C:\WINDOWS\System32\_874C.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CIAVIM] C:\WINDOWS\System32\CIAVIM.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mvcorew] C:\WINDOWS\System32\mvcorew.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinTools] C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

Then delete the following:
  • C:\Program Files\TV Media <= Delete this directory
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\fmjsda.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\TLA.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\_874C.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\CIAVIM.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\mvcorew.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools <= Delete this directory
Even if the entries do not exist in HijackThis in safe mode, still delete the files. Make sure to click on "Fix Selected" to ensure that the entries get deleted.

I got most of it done, some of the files were not there to be delted and the following was not in the HJT log to be fixed. I had indicted that all hidden filkes and folders be shown:

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CIAVIM] C:\WINDOWS\System32\CIAVIM.exe

And this file was not there to be deleted:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\CIAVIM.exe

The computer seems to be running faster, but the little "actulice" box with the word modF still popped up 7 times at reboot.

Here is my fresh log.

It is a lot shorter than it used to be.

Thanks a bunch, I will wait for further instructions if any.

What is this little "actulice" box that keeps popping up?

Twaintec is still there - Did you run through that part of the procedure?

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.

In HijackThis delete:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ISKCOPYD] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ISKCOPYD.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DPDX32O] C:\WINDOWS\System32\DPDX32O.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ET10ES] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ET10ES.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

Delete the following from your system:
  • C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\ISKCOPYD.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\DPDX32O.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\ET10ES.exe
  • C:\Program Files\TV Media <= Delete this directory
For actulice ... Can you download Security Task Manager. Disable System restore as per the instructions here. Run Security Task Manager and look for actulice. Click on it and the name of the file should appear on the bottom of the screen and all the info. Then go to the Start menu, go to Run and type in msconfig. Under the Start up tab look for the name of the file the Security Task Manager Found. Uncheck the file and click Apply and Save. Go back to Security Task Manager and click Remove and Move file to quarantine. Re-enable system restore at the same location. Reboot and post another log for further review.

I tried to remove Twain-tec and it is not listed as a program to remove. It is simply just not on the list.

I think these files are changing names because the one you tell me to erase are not there, but other ones with odd names are.

Here is what HJT did not have listed that you wanted me to erase:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ISKCOPYD] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ISKCOPYD.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DPDX32O] C:\WINDOWS\System32\DPDX32O.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ET10ES] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ET10ES.exe


And here are the files that were not there:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\ISKCOPYD.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\DPDX32O.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ET10ES.exe

Also, windows said I could not erase C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll, I found the files but it would not let me remove it.

Here is the new HJT log:

There are three files, all residing in c:\windows\system32 that have the strange names - Every time you reboot - The names change. Please check for three strangly named files, remove them from HijackThis, reboot and then delete the files themselves.

Perfect - Looking so much better :) I am just happy to of been able to help you.

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.
