My system was completely hosed with spyware/adware/viruses, I've managed to get rid of most of it, but some of it's being stubborn. Could really use some help, thanks.

Hello eliosharg and welcome to the GTG forums. After reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [etbrun] C:\winnt\system32\elitegfk32.exe

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Step #2

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):C:\winnt\system32\elitegfk32.exe
Next, let's clean up the temporary folders:* Click Start
* Point to Programs
* Point to Accessories
* Point to System Tools
* Click Disk Cleanup
* Select the following items and then click the OK button.* Temp Setup Files
* Downloaded Program Files
* Temp Internet Files
* Debug Dump Files
* Office Setup Files
* old chkdsk files
* Recycle Bin
* Temp Remote Desktop Files
* Setup Log Files
* Temp Files
* WebClient temp files
[/list]Step #3

Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the quote box below into the new document:

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Elitum]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\LQ]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Winrar\File List]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Winrar\Profiles]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_ROOT\CLSID\{825CF5BD-8862-4430-B771-0C15C5CA880F}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_ROOT\CLSID\{28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81C3A}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{DBF33E89-1784-42AC-ADE4-A428F56550A3}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{A9B28EF6-ABF3-463B-A3D8-4D0D0BADFADC}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{CA9FC31A-6F35-4493-B629-E64BD6170A17}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{a74cd7de-ea6f-11d4-abf3-000102378429}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{a74cd7dd-ea6f-11d4-abf3-000102378429}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PLOT.PlotCtrl.1]


Save the file as fixreg.reg to your desktop and close Notepad. Locate the fixreg.reg file on your desktop and double-click on it. When asked if you want to merge it into the registry click on Yes or Ok.

Step #4

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

Hi eliosharg. Your log looks clean. Congratulations! How are things running? Any problems?

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

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.
* 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, SpywareGuard and IESpy-Ad. They will add 1000's of sites to your resticted zone and block some hijacks from happening.

You should also have a good firewall like ZoneAlarm or Kerio Personal Firewall (both are free) and a good anti-virus application like the one you are currently using. It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and keep them updated.

To keep your system up to date and clean visit Windows Update monthly, run AdAware SE and Spybot Search & Destroy weekly, 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 article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!
