Hi there

I have read the FAQ and I am pretty sure it is OK to post this issue.
I have cut 'n'pasted a log at the end.

I am running WinXP Pro with firewall protection enabled on a cable internet connection.

I run Spyware Guard, Spyware Blaster, Adaware Pro, Ad-Watch, SpyBot S&D, Panic Ware POP-Up stopper and PestPatrol Pro.
I use Norton Antivirus for the email bound bugs and Cookie Wall to manage cookies.
I also use a custom HOSTS file for garbage url's.
All defintion files are kept current.
I know it sounds like overkill but none of them alone keep my PC germ free.

Until the last couple of weeks I have always been parasite free.
I just started intercepting the following 8 instances of bugs.

1 instance of VX2.f
1 instance of VX@.ABetterInternet
3 instances of Twain-Tech
1 instance of StopPop
2 instances of Downloadware

Although my battery of bug protectors find them; the registry entries are not always where the Anti Spyware apps. say the bugs are. Directories indicated by the Anti Spyware apps. are not on my HDD either. Add/Remove Program File suggestions made by the Anti-Spyware apps. do not help either.
I appear to be getting false positives.??!!........

I have even entered the CLSID's in the "Custom Blocking" part of Spyware Blaster and that did not help.

Anyway; the end result is I delete them, then reboot, then they return. The same 8 (no more / no less) return.

Any help, thoughts and or comments would be appreciated.

Thanks....marlam

Hi,
Download > HijackThis!
Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, unzip, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

Double-click "HijackThis.exe" and Press "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Click: "Save Log" (generates: "hijackthis.log")

Copy and Paste the entire log into your next post.

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

Hint: after posting your log click "Track this topic" at the top of the page, this way you will be notified (email) when a response is made to your post.

Hi,
Uninstall via Add Remove: Spyware Begone (it's bogus)


First thing to do is ...

Reconfigure Windows Explorer to show Hidden Files:
Open the Windows Explorer Folder Options - View [tab]:

Scroll down to the "Files and Folders" section.
Select: "Display the contents of system folders".

Scroll down to the "Hidden Files and Folders" section.
Select: "Show hidden files and folders", Ok the prompt
Uncheck: "Hide file extensions for known file types"
Uncheck: "Hide protected operating system files" Ok the Prompt, click Apply

Click the "Apply to all Folders" button. Close Windows Explorer.

Next:

Close all open windows, except for HijackThis place a check in each of the following:
Then click "Fix checked".

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.couldnotf...count_id=132556
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [explorer] C:\WINDOWS\System32\explorer.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [oscqdhjwzw] C:\WINDOWS\System32\xcjchrp.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Spyware Begone] C:\freescan\freescan.exe -FastScan
O16 - DPF: {12398DD6-40AA-4C40-A4EC-A42CFC0DE797} - http://www.xxxtoolba...0006_cracks.cab


Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode (see "How To" below)

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)
Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\xcjchrp.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\mxTarget.dll <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\freecell2.exe <--this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\explorer.exe <--this file TROJ_KILITY.A :alarm:
Note: do not delete C:\Windows\Explorer.exe
C:\freescan <--this folder

After the above ...

Reconfigure Ad-Aware for Full Scan:
Please update the reference file following the instructions here:
http://www.lavahelp....dref/index.html

Launch the program, and click on the Gear at the top of the start screen.

Click the "Scanning" button.
Under Drives & Folders, select "Scan within Archives".
Click "Click here to select Drives + folders" and select your installed hard drives.

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.
Click the "Advanced" button. Under "Log-file detail", select all options.

Click the "Tweaks" button. Under "Scanning Engine", select the following:
"Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile" and
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under "Cleaning Engine", select the following:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Click on 'Proceed' to save these Preferences.
Please make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed.

After the above, reboot, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log ...

Note: did you place this in the Trusted Zone?

Hi WinHelp2002...thanks for all your help

Here are some notes I made while following your instructions.
1. Spyware Begone was not available to remove
2. The "temp" directory was empty
3. C:\Windows\System32\freecell2.exe did not exist.
4. c:\freescan did not exist.
5. Indepth Ad-Aware scan returned 100% clean result.
6. No, I did not add the 015-Trusted Zone entry - I went ahead and deleted it.

Here is the latest HiJackThis log.

Hi,
Looks like you are infected again ... (different parasites)

Close all open windows, except for HijackThis place a check in each of the following:
Then click "Fix checked".

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = http://websearch.drs...esearch.cgi?id=
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://websearch.drs...esearch.cgi?id=
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Win Server Updt] C:\WINDOWS\wupdt.exe


Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode (see "How To" below)

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)
Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

C:\WINDOWS\wupdt.exe <--this file

After the above, reboot, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log ...

Note: your NAV should have caught this one: wupdt.exe

Then reboot, after restart go to:
Control Panel | Internet Options | Programs [tab]
Click "Reset web settings" button, Ok

what app / apps you would recommend in the way of Parasite protection.

I would suggest adding some "Defense" to your system ...
