Hi Diddles

Boot into safemode

Using Windows Explorer delete the following files if present:
If you get an error when deleting a file. Right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. if it is uncheck it and try again.

C:\Program Files\MySearch<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\Lycos<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\MySearch\bar\1.bin\S42NS.EXE<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\iesearchtoolbar<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\cxtpls<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\MySearch<--Delete the whole folder
C:\Program Files\Lycos<--Delete the whole folder

C:\Documents and Settings\Tricia Pobjoy\Application Data\tvm*.dll<--Delete this file
C:\Documents and Settings\Tricia Pobjoy\Application Data\Lycos<--Delete this file
C:\Documents and Settings\Tricia Pobjoy\Favorites\Sites about\Ab scissor.url[/b]<--Delete this file

Hi Diddles

Welcome to geekstogo

Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).

Please download and install these programs - don't run them yet!!

Please download and unzip
About:Buster to a folder. Inside the folder is a readme file that has instructions on the use of the program.
AboutBuster MUST be updated before you use it.
Start AboutBuster, click the update button, check for update, drag the box to the side and hit download updates, close the box . Don't run it yet.


Please download and install AD-Aware.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

Download and unzip cwsserviceremove to your desktop. use either link below:
cwsserviceremove

cwsserviceremove.zip


Download CW-Shredder at the link below:
CWShredder

Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

For anyone using Windows XP, 'Search' will not automatically show hidden files even if your folder options settings are set to do that. Do this so you can see hidden files and folders - Click here to download xphidden.zip. Extract xphidden.reg from the zip file and save it to the desktop. When done, double-click the xphidden.reg and when asked to merge say yes.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here's the fix:

Reboot into Safe Mode: Click here if you don't know how to do this.

Using Windows Explorer delete the following files if present:
If you get an error when deleting a file. Right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. if it is uncheck it and try again.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cache\cxtpls_loader.exe<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\inf\farmmext.inf<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\DealHelper<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\DealHelper<--Delete this file
C:\Documents and Settings\Tricia Pobjoy\Application Data\sskknwrd.dll<--Delete this file

(and any other files with the same name that end in .dll, .exe or .dat, you may find them right next to each other, example - appsw.exe, appsw.dll, appsw.dat)

Run AboutBuster . This will scan your computer for the bad files and delete them. Save the report (copy and paste into notepad or wordpad and save as a .txt file) and post a copy back here when you are done with all the steps.

Scan with AdAware and let it remove any bad files found.

Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Download the ccleaner
I use this Program and is setup like this all boxs are check.

Clean out all temp files in Mozilla, Internet Explorer.
Internet Explorer: Tools/ Internet Options/ General/ Temporary internet files/ Delete Files (NOTE, that this may take very long!). You can also set the memory limit to about 80 MB at the Settings.

Mozilla: Edit/ Options/ Extended/ Cache/ Clear Cache

Double click on the cwsserviceremove and when asked to merge say yes.

Run CW-Shredder - Hit the FIX button - let it run and fix what it finds.

Reboot into normal mode.

Download the Hoster from here Press "Restore Original Hosts. and press "OK". Exit Program.

Download and run this online virus scan:
http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp
Make sure you check "AutoClean"

Please reboot and post a fresh HijackThis.log to see how we did.

Hi Thatman -

I can't access the housecall virus scan program. Should I run Panda instead?

Thanks

After I ran the Housecall virus scan I also ran another Panda Scan here is that report:


Incident Status Location

Spyware:Spyware/AdClicker No disinfected Windows Registry
Adware:Adware/Transponder No disinfected C:\WINDOWS\dlmax.dll


One other question:
I had Macfee Software that came with my Dell, they want me to pay them to renew my subscription. I don't want to do that right now and I installed AVG on my system when I started repairing all the damage a few weeks back. I think I should remove Macfee from my system because now I am running AVG. Is this what you think I should do?

Also, If I have more than one antispyware program running is this a conflict with other spyware software I may have on my system?


Thanks again for all your help!!!

Hi Diddles

In my opinion AVG antivirus is better, yes I would uninstall Macfee Software.

What firewall are you using?
As fore your anti-malware program I have six programs running with no problems.

Vulnerability Identifier these are for Microsoft office you can update by clicking on the office updates from the office programs you are using.

Please delete this item C:\WINDOWS\dlmax.dll

If you need any help just post a log to me
