It was requested that we rescan our computer with the latest verion of HijackThis, and so we have done so. It is posted below. We have run Spybot, AdAware and McAffee Anitvirus, to no avail.

We appreciate any assistance in getting the computer "back to normal".

Hi ruaidhri

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:

Download CW-Shredder at the link below:

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: We have still some coolwebsearch items to remove

Important Step
1. Go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok
Scroll down and find the service called:

No files to remove

When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows. If you don´t find this service listed go ahead with the next steps.

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

3. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete once -> Click Task Manager -> Click the Processes tab -> Double-click the Image Name column header to alphabetically sort the processes -> Scroll through the list and look for:

C:\Documents and Settings\T\Local Settings\Temp\temp.fr9EB1\VirtualBouncer.exe

If you find the files, click on them, and then click End Process -> Exit the Task Manager.

4. CLOSE ALL WINDOWS AND BROWSERS Scan with HijackThis and put checks next to all the following,

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\zqnnh.dll/sp.html#27859
O2 - BHO: BTGrabObj Class - {00000000-F09C-02B4-6EC2-AD0300000000} - C:\WINDOWS\BTGrab.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {017C20C1-F86F-11D8-9B25-000ACD002AE3} - C:\WINDOWS\Helper101.dll
O2 - BHO: SDWin32 Class - {2FCD27F2-7EAC-4BB7-92B8-AEC6CA579BE7} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\ydyzz.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8D32F80A-AB76-8C8A-C145-95961BCC455D} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: SDWin32 Class - {9CF35474-73DF-4487-89C4-BF3B062B4FD6} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\ulhdh.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ydyzzc] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ydyzzc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ulhdhc] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ulhdhc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [VBouncer] C:\Documents and Settings\T\Local Settings\Temp\temp.fr9EB1\VirtualBouncer.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dvx] C:\WINDOWS\System32\wsxsvc\wsxsvc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [vmss] C:\WINDOWS\System32\vmss\vmss.exe
O16 - DPF: {10000000-1000-0000-1000-000000000000} - file://C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\mtsigjnf.exe

Then click on "Fix Checked"

5. 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\zqnnh.dll<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\BTGrab.dll<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\Helper101.dll<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ydyzz.dll<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ulhdh.dll<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ydyzzc.exe<--Delete this file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ulhdhc.exe<--Delete this file
C:\Documents and Settings\T\Local Settings\Temp\temp.fr9EB1\VirtualBouncer.exe<--Delete all files in the temp folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wsxsvc\wsxsvc.exe<--Delete the whole folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\vmss\vmss.exe<--Delete the whole folder

(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)

6. 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.

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

8. 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:

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

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

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

11. Reboot into normal mode.

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

13. Download and run this online virus scan:
Make sure you check "AutoClean"

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