First off, please excuse me for being VERY computer illiterate. I've looked around on the boards before posting to see if I could help myself before bothering all of you but all of the computer lingo is very confusing to me. I apologize now for this.

Starting a couple of days ago, pop-ups started taking over my computer. I can not get them to go away. I have pop-up blocker enabled on my system and never had a problem before this. Now it's letting everything through which is screwing with my computer and slowing me down more than ever.

I have no clue if this could be a virus or if I'm just missing something. I'm using AOL which has a Spyware Blocker on it - which I keep running a scan on, it comes back with 2 files .. which I delete and then when I turn around and run it again, they are right back again!

To make matters worse.. I'm on Dial-up and running WindowsXP.

*sigh*

I'm so frustrated and I hate that I know nothing about computers. I feel like an idiot. :whistling:

Advice? Keep in mind, I need simple dumb people language and step by step instructions.

Thanks in advance :blink:

Hello HeavenErth,

I'm so frustrated and I hate that I know nothing about computers. I feel like an idiot. :whistling:

You knew enough about computers to even find this place, trust me, that's a good start.

* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Rip - Did I do something wrong? Just let me know and I can try again.

Thanks again.. I'd love to make a donation once my computer gets back to normal. I'm afraid to log onto my PayPal or bank account until I'm sure someone somewhere isn't spying on my system somehow. :whistling:

Hello HeavenErth,

You haven't done anything wrong at all, work has just kept me beyond busy this last week. I apologize for that, let's see if we can't finish cleaning your computer out :whistling:

Using Add Or Remove Programs remove the following entries (if present): (To get into add Or Remove Programs press the START button > Control Panel > Add Or Remove Programs.)

  • Once the setup is complete, run Ewido and update the definition files.
  • On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • 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".

::Report end


I just had two new things start to happen though -

I get two pop up boxes when I start up my computer.

One is an error message saying:
RUNDLL
Error loading wa675eef.dll
The specified module could not be found

The other looks like an I.E. box that says:
Web Page Unavailable While Offline
The webpage you are requesting is not available offline
To view this page click Connect.
CONNECT or STAY OFFLINE

The I.E. Box pops up constantly while I am online unless I click CONNECT. It won't show me this site unless I click Connect. I never had that issue before but when all the pop-ups started giving me problems, this box started popping up too. I do not use I.E. as my browser. I use AOL. :blink:

Any ideas on this as well? Thanks and sorry for such a mess! I promise to make it worth your while. :whistling:

Hello HeavenErth,

The I.E. Box pops up constantly while I am online unless I click CONNECT. It won't show me this site unless I click Connect. I never had that issue before but when all the pop-ups started giving me problems, this box started popping up too. I do not use I.E. as my browser. I use AOL.

I've encountered that problem before myself, but not with an aol type browser. I think the solution should still work fine, though. Try this: Open up your aol browser, on the top left side of the browser should be a tab marked as "tools." Click on that and go down to the tab saying "Internet options" there should be a tab further to the right that says "connections" click on that. There should be a three options listed in the middle of the box, I want you to select the "Never dial a connection" box and then hit Ok. Let me know if that works.

Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only

Please download the Killbox by Option^Explicit. ( Save it to your desktop. )

Note: In the event you already have Killbox, this is a new version that I need you to download.

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

Hi RiP,

I was able to do everything you stated except when I got to the Run Killbox part at the end.
For some reason, I'm not able to copy over both file paths. When I am in Safemode I can not get back online to copy the paths. I tried saving it as a Word doc and copying it that way but I must be doing something wrong. I tried to type it directly in the box but at one point I was only able to type in one of the file paths. It isn't letting me type anything in the white box until I click the delete file button and then it will tell me I have to put a file in the (now) yellow box. ??

When I "paste from clipboard" nothing is showing up and it still says 0 Files at the top.

Hello HeavenErth,

Try doing this instead:

Boot into Safe Mode:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

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.

Using Windows Explorer delete the following files (if present): (To get into Windows Explorer, right click the START button and select "explore.")

C:\WINDOWS\system32\nse5B.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wa675eef.dll

Then reboot into normal mode and post a new HijackThis log :whistling:

Hello HeavenErth,

You can go ahead delete all of the stuff I had you download, during the course of the malware removal process.

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 to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visitmonthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scannersweekly, 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!
