Spykiller auto-lods at start-up and can only be removed by Hijackthis each session. I still get other pop-ups during the individual sessions between start-ups and a short cut to Captain Morgan's Casino is always placed on my desktop. I am running Tablet XP. My Hijackthis log is as follows:

Hi Cardoba

First, lets get rid of that old copy of Hijack this.
Then,
Download the latest version (1.98.2) from either Site 1 or Site 2.

Then, lets do a couple of online Virus scans. Use the links for Panda and Trend Micro. Let them scan your PC and fix whatever they find.

Panda
http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm

Trend Micro
http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp



Then,


Scanning in Spybot Search and Destroy:


1. Download and Install Spybot S&D, accepting the Default Settings

2. In the Menu Bar at the top of the Spybot window you will see 'Mode'. Make certain that 'default mode' has a check mark beside it.

3. Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D

4. Click the button to ‘Search for Updates’ then download and install the Updates.

5. Next click the button ‘Check for Problems’

6. When Spybot is complete, it will be showing ‘RED’ entries bold 'Black' entries and ‘GREEN’ entries in the window

7. Make certain there is a check mark beside all of the RED entries ONLY.

8. Choose ‘Fix Selected Problems’ and allow Spybot to fix the RED entries.

9.REBOOT to complete the scan and clear memory.


Scanning With Ad-Aware SE :


1. Download and Install Ad-Aware SE, keeping the default options. However, some of the settings will need to be changed before your first scan

2.Close ALL windows except Ad-Aware SE

3. Click on the‘world’ icon at the top right of the Ad-Aware SE window and let AdAware SE update the reference list for the adware and malware.

4. Once the update is finished click on the ‘Gear’ icon (second from the left at the top of the window) to access the preferences/settings window

1) In the ‘General’ window make sure the following are selected in green:
*Automatically save log-file
*Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
*Safe Mode (always request confirmation)

Under Definitions:
*Prompt to udate outdated definitions - set the number of days


2) Click on the ‘Scanning’ button on the left and select in green :

Under Driver, Folders & Files:
*Scan Within Archives

Under Select drives & folders to scan -
*choose all hard drives

Under Memory & Registry: all green
*Scan Active Processes
*Scan Registry
*Deep Scan Registry
*Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
*Scan my Hosts file


3) Click on the ‘Advanced’ button on the left and select in green:

Under Shell Integration:
*Move deleted files to recycle bin

Under Logfile Detail Level: (all green)
*include addtional object information
*DESELECT - include negligible objects information
*include environment information

Under Alternate Data Streams:
*Don't log streams smaller than 0 bytes
*Don't log ADS with the following names: CA_INOCULATEIT


4) Click the ‘Tweak’ button and select in green:

Under the ‘Scanning Engine’:
*Unload recognized processes during scanning
*Scan registry for all users instead of current user only


Under the ‘Cleaning Engine’:
*Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot


Under the Log Files:
*Include basic Ad-aware SE settings in logfile
*Include additional Ad-aware SE settings in logfile
*Please do not check or make green: Include Module list in logfile


5. Click on ‘Proceed’ to save the settings.

6. Click ‘Start’

*Choose:'Perform Full System Scan'
*DESELECT "Search for negligible risk entries", as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.

7. Click ‘Next’ and Ad-Aware SE will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected and clean automatically.

8. If Ad-Aware SE finds bad entries, you will receive a list of what it found in the window

9. Save the log file when it asks and then click ‘finish’

10. REBOOT to complete the removal of what Ad-Aware SE found


Use the following link to Download: Please run this also.

http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
Stinger is a stand-alone utility used to detect and remove specific viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when dealing with an infected system. Stinger utilizes next generation scan engine technology, including process scanning, digitally signed DAT files, and scan performance

Finally after doing all the above, RESCAN with HijackThis and POST your logfile in the same thread using ‘Add Reply’. Do not attempt to fix anything in HijackThis yourself!

Hello Cardoba

Lets move Hijack This into a folder of Its own.
Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.
Failure to do so may mean backups, if needed, will not be available.

Please print out these instructions so you can read them while you clean your system. A printout also makes a good check list for Hijack This, to avoid making errors.


Please run Hijack This again and place check marks next to the following entries.

The following appear to be randomly named files and as such they may be malware.
Unless you know these and are comfortable keeping them, have HJT fix them.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [iasnap850w.exe] "C:\WINDOWS\system32\iasnap850w.exe"

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [dpvacm711l.exe] "C:\WINDOWS\system32\dpvacm711l.exe"

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [inetppui285j.exe] "C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetppui285j.exe"

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [dskquota588p.exe] "C:\WINDOWS\system32\dskquota588p.exe"

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: C:\WINDOWS\System32\VBAME928p.dll

Close all other windows and browsers, then click on "Fix Checked.

Please REBOOT into safe mode by tapping on F8 frequently, during Bootup.

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".



Delete the following File(s)/Folder(s) in DARK while in Safe Mode.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\iasnap850w.exe( only if fixed with HJT above)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dpvacm711l.exe( only if fixed with HJT above)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetppui285j.exe( only if fixed with HJT above)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dskquota588p.exe( only if fixed with HJT above)

C:\WINDOWS\System32\VBAME928p.dll ( only if fixed with HJT above)


The following DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory) need to be deleted while still in safe mode.
* 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".

As an alternative to the above, please download and use CleanUp, free:
http://cleanup.stevengould.org/

Reboot into normal mode, enable System Restore, enable hidden files and post a fresh Hijack This log in this thread, Using the Add/Reply feature, so I will be notified.

Note: do not attempt to "Fix" anything, as we need to see the entire log.
Also if you have any Startup items disabled in Msconfig, uncheck those items, reboot, then post a fresh log. HijackThis can not "see" disabled items in Startup.

Hi Cardoba

Your Hijack This log seems to be clean. Congratulations. :D

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.

And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place?

Hello Cardoba
Thank you for the pat on the back. However, I am still learning and any skills I have I owe totally to the training program here and to those individuals that contribute their time and skills to this site.

To your question about making a contribution. If you wish to do so please use this link.

I'm sure anything you would care to contribute would be greatly appreciated. :D
