I keep getting a notice that "Windows has detected a spyware problem...", "your system is infected...", "you need to download anti-spyware..."- the message changes everytime. Then the ad for "Total PC Protection" comes up. Desktop theme has been overtaken by blue screen message - "Warning - Spyware threat detected on your computer". McAfee can't see it.

Need help to remove this problem.

Hi :whistling:


* 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.

Also please do this

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Hi :whistling:

You've got alot, lets start to get rid of this junk :blink:

Please print out or copy these instructions/tutorial to Notepad as the internet will not be available to you at certain points of the removal process (while in Safe Mode). Make sure to work through all the Steps in the exact order in which they are listed below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before moving on with the fixes.


1. Download and update Ewido.

First download Ewido anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.
This is a 30 day trial of the program
  • Once you have downloaded Ewido anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  • 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".
  • 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


2. Reboot your computer in Safe Mode.
  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power.
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe Mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • Login on your usual account.
3. Run Smitfraud Open the SmitfraudFix Folder, then double-click smitfraudfix.cmd file to start the tool.
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press Enter.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.
You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?" answer Yes by typing Y and hit Enter.
The tool will also check if wininet.dll is infected. If a clean version is found, you will be prompted to replace wininet.dll. Answer Yes to the question "Replace infected file ?" by typing Y and hit Enter.

A reboot may be needed to finish the cleaning process, if you computer does not restart automatically please do it yourself manually. Reboot in Safe Mode.

The tool will create a log named rapport.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


4. Clean out your Temporary Internet files. Proceed as follows:
  • Quit Internet Explorer and quit any instances of Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, click Delete Files under Temporary Internet Files.
  • In the Delete Files dialog box, tick the Delete all offline content check box , and then click OK.
  • On the General tab, click Delete Cookies under Temporary Internet Files, and then click OK.

Hi - well I did everything you suggested. Some things didn't happen:
1. On number 5, there wasn't an entry called "security ..." it was blank
2. On number 6, the recycle bin was already empty, so it wouldn't let me empty
3. On number 7, After the scan was done, and it found 120 items, 3 of which were high risk, and I "applied all actions", there was no reports at all under reports, so I couldn't "save as" - is this the "ewido log"?

Here is the rapport.txt:

You did fine and those were normal except the Ewido report but thats OK, as long as it cleaned or quarantined what it found, no big deal :whistling:

Please download ComboFix and save it to your desktop.
Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's done running it will produce a log for you. Please post that log in your next reply.

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

Hello again - thanks so much for your technical help - I am feeling a bit better towards my computer now - a couple of generic questions:

1. Is the Spyware program I downloaded the "one and only" I should always have and use, and what is the recommended protocol to use it and the other tools as a preventative in the future?
2. What were these infections doing while on my computer and should I be concerned about having purchased things on-line during the period they were on my computer?

Well that looks clean

1. Is the Spyware program I downloaded the "one and only" I should always have and use, and what is the recommended protocol to use it and the other tools as a preventative in the future?

There is no One and only unfortunately,although it is a great program. I will give you some prevention tips in a moment. The infection you had is pretty popular right now and you are definately not alone


What were these infections doing while on my computer and should I be concerned about having purchased things on-line during the period they were on my computer?

Basically it was trying to get you to buy thier product :whistling: This isn't really known for stealing passwords and such so you should be fine. Probably not a bad idea to change your passwords though, just to be safe. Its more of an annoyance than anything

How is the computer behaving?
