Cannot set my default home page in my MS Internet Explorer. Running XP personal Edition.

necessaryupdates.com seems to have control of my browser home page setting. Cannot change it with 'Tools!Options' from the browser.

Below is the log file produced when I ran HijackThis.

Hello vpsolis, and welcome to GeeksToGo :whistling:

Looks like you have a Desktop Hijack there. Let's go find it :

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Thank you for the report :whistling:

Let's move on to phase 2, shall we ? :

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune. Save it to the Desktop. Don't run it just yet.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode,Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Still from Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.
A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Warning : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.

Post a new HijackThis! log as well. We'll deal with a backdoor trojan you have in the next phase. Good luck :blink:

Restart in normal windows mode indicates that the effect of the virus no longer manifest itself. I've got back control of my browser, and can set Internet Options once again. Thank you so very much for your courteous and benifical assistance. In your last post you mentioned something about dealing with a backdoor trojan in the next phase. Thank you for your perservance.

Sincerely, vpsolis

I'm glad that you have your Desktop back !! :blink:

Yes, let's go after that trojan now. We need to change a few options to allow you to view hidden files ;

To show hidden files under Windows XP :
Launch Windows Explorer by right-clicking on Start >> choose Explore
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab :

Check the "Display the contents of system folders" option.
Under the "Hidden files and folders" heading select "Show hidden files and folders".
Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
Uncheck the "Hide file extensions for known file types" option.
Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Better print these next instructions out, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode.

Please download, install, and update the free version of Ewido Anti-Malware:
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • When you run ewido for the first time, you may get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • From the main ewido screen, click on update in the left menu, then click the Start update button.
  • After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
  • Exit Ewido. DO NOT scan yet.
Reboot into Safe Mode : restart the computer and immediately start tapping the F8 key until a menu with boot options appears. Using the keyboard arrows, select "Safe Mode" and hit "Enter". OK the prompts, and select your regular account (not Administrator).

Once into Safe Mode, launch HijackThis! and click "Do a system scan only", then check these lines and click "Fix checked" :


R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinsSystem] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\syssmss.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpywareRemover] C:\Program Files\SpywareRemover\SpywareRemover.exe -boot



Close HijackThis!. Using Windows Explorer, locate and delete this file (if found) :

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\syssmss.exe <<


Still in Safe Mode : run Ewido again.
  • Click on the Scanner button in the left menu, then click on the Start button. This scan can take quite a while to run, so time to go get a drink and a snack....
  • If ewido finds anything, it will pop up a notification. You can select "clean" and check the boxes "Perform action with all infections" and "Create encrypted backup" before clicking on OK.
  • When the scan finishes, click on "Save Report". This will create a text file. Make sure you know where to find this file again.
Reboot back into Normal mode.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I want to make sure no traces of that trojan are left behind ; so please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
Reboot once the scan is done. Post the Kaspersky report here, along with the Ewido report and a new HijackThis! log please. Good luck :whistling:

Thank you for those reports ; it looks great now :whistling:

Just one little thing left ; if you don't use ViewPoint, you can safely get rid of it. We see it used with AOL sometimes, but I don't see any AOL stuff on your computer.

Just go to Control Panel >> "Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall anything ViewPoint you see there, such as:

ViewPoint Manager
ViewPoint Media Player


Once done, delete this folder :

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint <<

The rest is clean :help: Let me know how the computer is running.
========================================

I see you only have SP1 installed for your operating system. As you will read below, it is extremely important to keep Windows updated with the latest critical updates and Service Pack (SP2).

In order to better protect your computer, here are a few important last steps :

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* UNSELECT "Display the contents of system folders"
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future, I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place. It doesn't run in the background, but acts as a vaccine. Update it every other week.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
If you don't use one of these already, please consider surfing with a better, safer browser than Internet Explorer (both are free !) :**For Firefox, be sure to install both the AdBlock and NoScript extensions for added security.

You should also have a good firewall (the Windows firewall just isn't good enough..). Here are 2 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and antivirus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date, visitmonthly. And to keep your system clean, run these free malware scannersweekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet, read this excellent article by TonyKlein: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Safe surfing :blink:

Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for your gracious assistance. This is the first time I've used this format to communicate. My daughter a college student suggested your website because she said she has used it several time to dis-infect some of her fellow students' infected computers. After all this time I notice in the left hand side at to top the name ~Mark. Is this the gentleman who has been assisting me all along? If so God Bless you Mark you are very much appreciated. Thank you for educating me on what to be aware of and for suggested remedies on how to keep my computer clean. My computer is running fine now thanks to you.

Sincerely, Vpsolis
