I've been to 2 other forums (in 2 weeks), but I'm still unable to find assistance. I know patience is a virtue, but I'd appreciate if someone would post a reply as soon as they've started taking a look at my HJLog. Doing so will at least relax me a bit, and let me know I'm not being ignored. [/whining]

I am following the 5 step course, which has taken me the past 6 hours. I get ~10 pop-ups every ~7 minutes. They just bombard me "click-click-click" all of a sudden, and I go on a bloody Alt+F4 rampage. Only program which catches my attention is Duce6.exe (I'm sure there are others). I've located Duce6.exe, and deleted it (RecyleBin), ~15 seconds later, it comes back.

Help me [your full name here], you're my only hope... :whistling:

Hello GreekFire....welcome to G2G forums...

This computer is SEVERELY infected. If we can clean it, it will likely take multiple steps. I'm willing to give it a shot if you are... :whistling:

We can help you, but you need to help us first.

You appear to have NO antivirus program on your computer and this is a must! Web surfing these days without an updated AV program is computer suicide.

Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, this is a must have. If you have no other AV program that you choose to use, select one of these two, install it, update it, run a system scan and let it fix what it finds.

1. Please download Brute Force Uninstaller to your desktop.
  • Right click the BFU folder on your desktop, and choose Extract All
  • Click "Next"
  • In the box to choose where to extract the files to,
  • Click "Browse"
  • Click on the + sign next to "My Computer"
  • Click on "Local Disk (C: ) or whatever your primary drive is
  • Click "Make New Folder"
  • Type in BFU
  • Click "Next", and Uncheck the "Show Extracted Files" box and then click "Finish".
2. RIGHT-CLICK HERE and choose "Save As" (in IE it's "Save Target As") in order to download Alcra PLUS Remover.
Save it in the same folder you made earlier (c:\BFU).

Do not do anything with these yet!

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping F8 until a menu appears. Highlight Safe Mode and hit enter. Log into your usual account.

3.Then, please go to Start > My Computer and navigate to the C:\BFU folder.
  • Start the Brute Force Uninstaller by doubleclicking BFU.exe
  • Behind the scriptline to execute field click the folder icon Posted Image and select alcanshorty.bfu
  • Press Execute and let the program do it's job. (You ought to see a progress bar if you did this correctly.)
  • Wait for the complete script execution box to pop up and press OK.
  • Press exit to terminate the BFU program.
Reboot into normal windows.

4. Now download this file from either of these two locations :

http://download.blee...Bs/combofix.exe
http://www.techsuppo...ls/combofix.exe

Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall!

5. Post the ComboFix log in your next reply along with a new HJT log and we'll see what we need to do next...and there will be more to do.

"SEVERELY"? I appreciate your help, and I will thoroughly follow your instructions, even if they contradict my morals! :whistling:


I'm not sure what the adverb severely has to do with morals, but believe me, this machine is /was severely infected. :blink:

Let's keep cleaning:

You may want to print a copy of these instructions to refer to later as you will be in safe mode and will not have access to this page!

  • Close HJT

1. I see you have Ewido installed, so you can skip the download instructions below...make sure it is updated with the latest definitions and set up as follows:

First download ewido anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.

    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  • Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close ewido anti-spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.

2. RIGHT-CLICK HERE and Save As (in IE it's "Save Target As") in order to download DelDomains.inf to your desktop.
To use: RIGHT-CLICK DelDomains.inf and select: Install (no need to restart)
Note: This will remove all entries in the "Trusted Zone" and "Ranges" also.

Ok, well I ran into a problem. I wasn't able to complete step 11, during a step (preparing to scan), I would get an error message saying I needed to close the browser and try again. I tried it 2 more times, with the same result.

ComboFix showed Duce6.exe as deleted after yesterdays scan, but it was back today (TaskManager) when I came here. I ran ComboFix again, before I ran any of todays steps. Then when I was in Safe Mode (during step 7) I noticed it was in C:\WINDWOS\Duce6.exe, so I deleted it again. I also noticed 2 other programs which icons resembled that of Duce6.exe, these were sys031364341-332006.exe, and ms064341-331362006.exe, but I'm not the expert, so I didn't touch those.

Here are the current logs.

hey GreekFire...I find it hard to believe that Ewido found NOTHING on your system...that is highly unusual and very weird.

Since I'm not standing over your shoulder when you do what I ask, can you tell me what error message you received trying to run F-Secure? It may help me figure out why it won't run.

Were you using Internet Explorer as the web browser?

1. Please download the Killbox by Option^Explicit.

Note: In the event you already have Killbox, this is a new version that I need you to download.
  • Save it to your desktop.
2. Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TheMonitor] C:\WINDOWS\Duce6.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ms04364341-331] C:\WINDOWS\ms04364341-331.exe


Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.


3. Please double-click Killbox.exe to run it.
  • Select:
    • Delete on Reboot
    • then Click on the All Files button.
  • Please copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy):

    C:\WINDOWS\Duce6.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\ms04364341-331.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\sys031364341-332006.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\ms064341-331362006.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\win320841-33136432006.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\xload.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\jyc47198.sys
    C:\Setup100.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\srvyoeckew.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\msmc.exe
    C:\OiUninstaller.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\ciwxg.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\uninstIcn.exe

  • Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose Paste from Clipboard.
  • Click the red-and-white Delete File button. Click Yes at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click OK at any PendingFileRenameOperations prompt (and please let me know if you receive this message!).
If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run Killbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try Killbox again.

4. After the computer reboots, repeat ComboFix .

5. Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report
6. Post the new ComboFix log in your next reply along with the Panda Log and a new HJT log...

Yes indeed. Ewido fails. :whistling: Then again, maybe there's just another program interfering with it.

F-secure ran this time! I was planning on 'PrintScreen'ing when the message came up, but it actually ran! I'll paste the log (I ran it before following any other instructions). If you're still interested (I can't exactly remember), the message read something similar to "An error has occured, close your browser and try again (ID:24)".

Hey GreekFire...good job!

Your HJT log appears clean and we're getting there, but there's still some stuff to do:

1. Please do this:
  • Copy the contents of the Quote Box below to Notepad.
  • Name the file as fix.reg
  • Change the Save as Type to All Files
  • and Save it on the desktop

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSCONFIG\Startupreg\C:\WINDOWS\hnjnszb.exe]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"msmc"=-


Make sure there are NO blank lines before REGEDIT4
Make sure there IS one blank line at the end of the file.

Then double-click on the fix.reg file, and when it prompts to merge say yes.


2. Open a command prompt by clicking start>>run and type cmd in the 'open' box.

Then type :

sc delete WintoolsSvc

and hit enter. Then type:

sc delete TBPSSvc

and hit enter

type exit and hit enter to exit the command prompt.

3. Please double-click Killbox.exe to run it.
  • Select:
    • Delete on Reboot
    • then Click on the All Files button.
  • Please copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy):

    c:\windows\system32\d2kpax.dll
    c:\windows\mstasks1.exe
    c:\windows\msxmidi.exe
    C:\\WINDOWS\\hnjnszb.exe

  • Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose Paste from Clipboard.
  • Click the red-and-white Delete File button. Click Yes at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click OK at any PendingFileRenameOperations prompt (and please let me know if you receive this message!).
If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run Killbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try Killbox again.

4. Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

5. Post back with the HJT uninstall list and let me know how your system is running...

My system blew up. :blink: No, seriously, I'm not getting any pop-ups, or weird error messages on start-up, and I never had to go against any of my morals. I appreciate all your help. You've been great! :whistling:

I have two questions. (1)Can you tell me which programs/functions are NOT necessary on start-up, so I may uncheck them with msconfig? (2)You had me download a few program trial-versions, should I delete those now? I may forget to delete them later.

Here is the HJT uninstall list.

Hello GreekFire...

You are welcome! The uninstall list looks fine...be very careful using P2P programs though...they are one of the largest sources of malware we see.

As far as start up programs, the one's I've noted below can be disabled from start up using msconfig as you desire; they are not required to run on start up and do so mostly out of convenience.

The choice about which to disable from start up is ultimately up to you. FYI, castlecops has a great start up list that details most all start up entries with information about each. You can find it here: CastleCops Startup List

You can feel free to delete/remove any program we downloaded/used to clean your system such as Killbox! and Ewido. Ewido, while a trial, may be a useful program to you after the trial. While i am not certain, I believe it maintains it's functionality but needs to be manually updated after the trial concludes. You could check at the Ewido site to make sure about that.

If you system is having no other problems, let's finish up. In the instructions below it is very important that you do the System Restore part, to remove potentially infected restore points from your computer!

If you are having any other problems or have any other questions, I'll keep this thread open for a day or two for you to respond. Let me know!

Your HJT appears clean and I'm glad your system is running well with out problems!

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT! - If you are using Windows XP then you should reset system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point and that you have a clean restore point should you need one!

    Now let's reset your restore points.

    Click Start Menu >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> SystemRestore

    Press OK. Choose 'Create a Restore Point' then Next. Name it and press 'Create' then when the confirmation screen shows the restore point has been created click 'Close'.

    Next go to Start Menu >> Run, then type:

    cleanmgr


    click OK, when Disk Cleanup opens go to the 'More Options' tab and press 'Cleanup' on the system restore area which will remove all the restore points except the one we just created. To close Disk Cleanup and remove the Temporary Internet Files detected in the initial scan click OK then choose Yes on the confirmation window.

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
  • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
  • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • ATF Cleaner by Atribune. This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only. ATF is a new, freeware, temporary file cleaner for Windows, IE, Firefox and Opera with a simple, easy-to-use interface. The main screen allows the user to either clean all temporary files, or select files for cleaning. The program also knows if Firefox and or Opera is being used, and gives the option of cleaning the temporary files associated with those applications.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein. These are excellent reads too: I'm not pulling your leg and Malware: Preventing the Infection

Remember...be careful out there!

Yeah, I do use torrents so. :whistling:

I ran into a problem(?) while trying to reactive my System Restore. It's an error message which pops-up ~4 times. The message reads:

rstrui.exe - Unable To Locate Component

This application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

The malware may have 'borked' that framedyn.dll file at that location. Take a look at these two links to see if they help:

http://support.micro...kb;en-us;319114

http://groups.google...d449f8d306a717e

Basically you'll first try to replace the file with a copy from another location on your HD or you can do a sfc /scannow (system file check) and repair/replace the missing file.

Let me know if this helps....otherwise I'll refer you to the Windows help forum here at G2G. But this should fix it!

I fixed it, but I've been having trouble with the instructions. It seems to stall here and there, and I haven't been able to complete the process. I will keep on trying (this post; heads-up so you know where I stand).
