Hey All, my homepage keeps getting set to mypoiskovik.com. I have tried HJT! and CWShredder with no luck (not sure exactly what files to delete/fix other than the obvious ones). I would appreciate it if the experts could help me out. Logfile is below.
thanks in advance,
peyto
p.s. - virus scan turned up trojan.byteverify which was deleted, but problem persists.

mypoiskovik.com can infect your system in many ways. To remove it, please follow the procedure listed below:
  • 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".
  • Run hijackthis and put a check next to these entries and then FIX checked after ALL other windows are closed (including this one):
  • In HijackThis, make sure that none of the following entries are present, if they are, remove them as well:
    • O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IEengine] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe
    • O4 - Global Startup: winlogin.exe
    • O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [dllhelp] c:\windows
  • RESTART your computer in Safe Mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?
  • Find and delete these files or folders:
    • C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe <= File
    • C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogin.exe <= This file, NOTICE the spelling. Please watch that you do not delete winlogon.exe (that is a legit file in the same directory)
    • winlogon.exe in any location other that c:\windows\system32. <= windows may be winnt. win98 etc, depending on your operating system. c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe is a legitimate, system file that MUST NOT be deleted. One of the more common places for winlogon.exe to hide is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs <= Be sure to check this location.
    • m.exe
    • dlltemp.exe
    • dllhelp.exe
    • Some files may be harder to spot (As mypoiskovik randomly changes the file names) so proceed with the following only if the infection was not found in any of the previous steps:
      • Click on "Start" => "Search" => "For files or Folders" => Search for "All Files and Folders" => Type in *.exe *.dll => Under "When was it modified" => "Specify Date" => Date of suspected infection through Today.
      • Hit search and wait for a while, proably at least 1/2 hour, depending on your CPU speed.
      • This will give you a list of every insidious .exe file and .dll file that may be trojans infecting your computer.
      • Look at the files and see what looks suspicious. DO NOT delete anything is you are at all unsure as you may have valid file names listed. Post the list back here for us to review and make recommendations.
  • While still in safe mode would you please run CoolWeb Shredder one more time and let it FIX all problems.
  • RESTART back in Normal mode. Don't open a browser yet.
  • Instead, access your "Internet options" via "Control Panel" and under the "Programs" tab, "Reset Web Settings".
  • Under the "General" tab => "Delete files" and "Reset home page".
  • Post back a fresh Hijackthis log.

The only additional ones are classified as "Optional" to delete as they are resource hogs:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.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.
