Posted 28 May 2004 - 10:11 PM

Could someone please help with my kid's computer. They are constantly getting popups, every so often the Gain installation dialogue. It is also running very slow.
I stopped the Wintools for I service, and tried to uninstall wintools for internet explorer v2, but it tels me there are other ad-powered software needs to be removed first.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Rick

You are infected with the peper trojan. Run this uninstaller:

http://www.memorywat....com/uninst.exe

You need to be online in order to use the uninstaller and allow access through your firewall. Failure to let it connect, will result in incomplete removal and possible reinfection.

Move Hijackthis out of the temp directory (extract from zip)into a permanent folder. Example:
c:\program files\hijackthis\hijackthis.exe

This will allow backups to be made and saved By hijackthis in case something goes wrong.

Place a check next to the following entries, then close all open windows except hijackthis and click fix.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {BDF6CE3D-F5C5-4462-9814-3C8EAC330CA8} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Pcsv] C:\WINNT\system32\pcs\pcsvc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dpi] C:\Program Files\Common Files\Dpi\dpi.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdRoarUpdate] C:\WINNT\ARUpdate.exe
O16 - DPF: {FF65677A-8977-48CA-916A-DFF81B037DF3} (WMService Class) - http://download.over...com/WildApp.cab

Then reboot into safe mode and delete these files.
C:\WINNT\ARUpdate.exe

And these folders.
C:\WINNT\system32\pcs
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Dpi

You may have to enable hidden files to find all the files.

Reboot into normal mode.
Go to Add/remove programs;find:
"Window Search" And "WinTools" and remove (uninstall) them.
You will be given a security code to insert, do so

Then reboot and run another hijackthis scan and post your new log here.

Thanks for your help.

Seems to be o.k. so far.

I could not find the file ARUpdate.exe anywhere on my computer, even hidden

I did not find the "Windows Search" in the Add/Remove, and I still cannot remove the Wintools. I get a popup that says "Other ad-supported software installed. Please remove it first"

Thanks again
Rick

Have hijackthis fix this entry.
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {BDF6CE3D-F5C5-4462-9814-3C8EAC330CA8} - (no file)

Everything else looks good.

Wintools isn't listed in your running processes, so the entry in your add/remove is basicly just a dead link.

You can have a look at this web page for more info on wintools removal.

http://www.pchell.co.../wintools.shtml

You should read this to help prevent future problems.

So how did I get infected

In your Add/Remove Programs thing, you have to delete everything that ends with "reseter" (It could be "updater", I'm not sure). It'll be things like "Search Bar Updater" or whatever it says. There were three on mnie, probably the same on yours. Once you remove those, you can remove Wintools. It tries to confuse you with three yes no dialogs, read them carefully or it will just reinstall itself.
