I have run Steps 1 through 4 as your website suggests. The Trend House call located JAVA BYTEVER.B on our c:\Documents and Settings in five locations. I have been unable to remove it from our computer using all of the suggested remedies. Please help!!!

I am an ignorant mom whose children love to use the computer to play games.

Thank you.

Here is my Hijack file:

Hi ignorant, and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums. I sure hope you have another name. There can't be two of us here with the same name.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

1. Go to Geeks to Go
. Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window. (make sure you have signed in first)
. In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
. If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there

2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. I know you are tired of running programs but, unfortunately I have another one for you to play with. Click HERE to download System Security Suite. Extract it from the zip file into a folder and doubleclick on sss.exe. Check the boxes under the 'Items to Clear' tab and click 'Clear Selected Items'. Reboot when prompted. I think the Trojan Program has found the trojans in the Temp Files or some of them anyway.

4. I would like you now to run the trojan program again and take note of where it finds trojan-related problems and include them with your next reply.

5. You are currently running HijackThis from a Temporary folder. HJT needs to be in a folder of it's own so that the program itself and the backups it creates aren't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!

1. Please go to your 'My Documents' folder, right-click and select 'New > Folder' then name the folder HijackThis.

2. Copy and paste HijackThis.exe to the new folder.

3. Close ALL windows except HJT

4. SCAN with HJT

5. POST a new log


DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO YOUR COMPUTER'S HEALTH


Regards,

Trevuren

Trevuren,

Thank you for your prompt response to my plee for help! I won't have a chance to run the programs you suggested until my children lay down for their naps. Until then I will only be running on half a brain, and won't be able to give my full attention to these issues.

Thank you for explicit directions. I will follow them as best as I can.
I will get back to this post later today.

Trevuren,

I have downloaded the system security suite.

However, under the 'Items to Clear' tab...should I be checking all the boxes including those listed under 'Internet Explorer', 'Windows Media Player' and 'My Computer'.... or simply those under 'Internet Explorer'.

I just want to be clear on this before I 'Clear the Selected Items'.

Additionally, I believe I have managed to move HijackThis.exe to its own file under My documents.

Please let me know what I should do as far as clearing selections for the system security suite, and then I will go ahead and follow the rest of your directions in your previous posting.

THANK YOU
AMY

Trevuren,

I appreciate your help. I believe I have completed all of your suggestions.

I ran the trojan program again. This is what the log said:

1) File name:a0034375.hta
Path: c:\system volume information\_restore{b37680b2-ba0a-4e5d-bf30-83e44c588624}

2) File name: a0034376.hta
Path: c:\system volume informtion\_restore{b37680b2-ba0a-4e5d-bf30-83e44c588624}

I also ran Hijack This again and here is the latest:

Hi Amy,

Thanks for inquiring about my Friday. It has been the most difficult spyware day for me so far. But it is all coming together as it should.

The trojans are in your System Restore where they will stay until we finish with your HijackThis log.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Now let's do some work on your log:

First we need to make all files and folders VISIBLE:

Go to start>control panel>folder options>view (tab)
*choose to "show hidden files and folders,"
*uncheck the "hide protected operating system files" and the "hide extensions for know file types" boxes.
*Close the window with ok
*All hidden files will now be visible

Close all browser windows and RUN HijackThis.
. Click the SCAN button to produce a log.
. Now place a check mark beside each one of the following Mandatory items .

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0F0FC8E8-3517-5409-BFCA-AB9177EBDA9A} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\atlex32.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [waol.exe] C:\Program Files\America Online 9.0\waol.exe
O16 - DPF: {22A88341-AFCB-45F0-A856-C2BAE74F878E} (InstallX Class) - http://www.20x2p.com...da13a/enter.cab


Now with all the items selected, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window and Reboot Your System in Safe Mode

How to use the F8 method to Start Your Computer in Safe Mode

*Restart the computer.
*as soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
*Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
*press Enter.


Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files and delete them (if they are present): (only the red part)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\atlex32.dll
C:\Program Files\America Online 9.0\waol.exe

Exit Explorer, and REBOOT BACK INTO NORMAL MODE

Finally,RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everytjhing looks now.

Regards,

Trevuren

I was going to bed but..... (Please do these before the kids get to it again)

Congratulations, your new log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1. Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
2. Left click on "System Restore Tab"
3. Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
4. Left click on "Apply"

TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1.Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
2.Click on "Apply"

2. Another cleanup that will help is to go to Start>Programs>Acccessories>System Tools> Disk Cleanup and put a check mark beside all the entries in the disk cleanup window that ask you what you want to clean. Clean all hard drives and all files. This will get rid of any malware that is hiding in the temporary folders.

3. Make sure that all are gone, by checking the folders that the Temporary Internet Files and Temp files are stored in. To do so use Control Panel > Internet Options(or right click the IE icon on the desktop and choose Properties). Click Delete Files on the General Tab - place a check in the Delete all offline content box, then 'Clear History' and then press OK (or go direct to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofilename\Local Settings\Temp\ folder) and
C:\Documents and Settings\userprofilename\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\)

4. Empty your Recycle Bin

5. Double Check the following folders to make sure they are empty:
C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\your account\Temporary Internet Files
Delete all the files in (and any subfolders of) the C:\Windows\Temp\ folder (or go direct to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofilename\Local Settings\Temp\ folder) and C:\Documents and Settings\userprofilename\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\)

6. You may find that you have to repeat the steps a couple of times.

7.Finally, Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.


Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My Favorite)
