Just found something strange on my system, might be linked to things being sent out to my Yahoo messenger address list.

WORM_FATSO.A any ideas on how to get rid of it?

My virus scan also listed JAVA BYTEVER.A AND .C but these are showing up in my sun java.

Any help would be appreciated. My hijack log looks clean but I'd be happy to post it.

Hi Sheila,

Thank you for your patience, my Guru has checked and approved my reply to you.

Please print out these instructions to make it easy to follow and to have access to them when you have to reboot your pc. Please read through them prior to commencing to do anything and if there is anything that you are unsure of, or do not understand, please contact me first for assistance.

I would like you to carry out the following free on-line virus scans and follow their instructions on removal of anything that they may find.

Please also copy the results of the logs that they provide into Notepad or a Word document ( If unsure of this task please ask)so that you can post them in this thread later if required.

Trend housecall <- (I notice you may have already carried out this one, If recent please ignore running this scan)

Panda Active Scan

Next please download the following two programs. Install them and update them both. Then run each one and have them fix anything that they may find.

Spybot Search and Destroy 1.3

Ad-aware S E 1.5


Open up HJT and rescan and Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake. Some of them might not be there as they will have been removed in previous stages of the sequence. This is normal so do not be alarmed

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)
O23 - Service: Compaq Advisor (Compaq_RBA) - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Compaq\Compaq Advisor\bin\compaq-rba.exe (file missing)
<- (This file generates some kind of server or servlet that attempts to connect with Compaq online. They are like Trojans, but fairly harmless. They send information on the "Compaq Advisor/Compaq Message Screener" application that comes with every Compaq computer and provide feedback on how computer users use the Message Advisor. It is not required and can be safely removed)

Please close all browsers and open windows except HJT and then click Fix Checked

Please reboot your PC into safe mode, by continually tapping the f8 key whilst your PC reboots

Carry out a full virus scan, ensuring that you have the latest definitions.

Please empty your Temp files and Recycle Bin. The easiest way would be via Disk clean in System tools (Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System tool/Disk Cleanup – ensure tick placed next to Recycle Bin and Temporary files)

Restart your PC normally and rescan with HJT and post the result in this thread, and i will get back to you.


Regards,

Congratulations your log now appears to be clean. :tazz:

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • 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.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • 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.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera and SlimBrowsers are good as well.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and AntiSpyware Net's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.
