Hi you guys,
I installed a codec on my computer yesterday that didn't open a video file and it has been adding pop-ups, icons on my desktop, and changed my homepage to gophersearch from google. I use Internet Explorer and have had a lot of bad spyware ruin my computer before so I'm pretty scared and don't want this one ruined. I want to get rid of it before it does damage. Thanks for helping me out!

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :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.

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of the lines listed below. Then close all other windows--you should only see HijackThis on your Desktop--and click the Fix Checked button.

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://www.gophersearch.com/
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UserFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -u



Reboot and post a new hijackthis log.

Are you still having the same problems?

Windows restarted with no icons on it and only an Adaware window, the computer still works slower than usual, and when I ran Adaware, it still listed running processes and critical objects coming mostly from system32.

That's interesting. Your log is clean, so apparantly we have some investigating to do.

Let's make sure it's gone.


Download KillBox and unzip it to your desktop.

Open Killbox and select the Delete on reboot option.
Copy and paste the following file to the field labeled "Full path of file to delete"


C:\WINDOWS\smss.exe


Press the Delete button (the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it).
A first dialog box will ask if you want to delete the file on reboot, press the YES button.
A second dialog box will ask you if you want to REBOOT now. Press the YES button.

Your computer will reboot.


Please post a new hijackthis log.

I made the mistake of leaving "Standard File Kill" on instead of changing it to "Delete on Reboot" and when I tried "Delete on Reboot," it said the file was erased. I did a HijackThis log and it had smss.exe as a running process. I tried to "Delete on Reboot" again and it also said it was erased, but this HijackThis log lists it as a running process too.

It's all about location. The process that you have running now is the legitimate file in the correct location. The one we deleted was the bad one.

Your log looks pretty good. How is your computer running now?

It seems to be running okay right now, but there are words like "Aries" or "Love" highlighted in green which, when I put the mouse on them, says IntelliTXT. Occasionally the IntelliTXT has gone in the process of removing the traces of the bad codec in the computer, but I'm worried that since it remains, the traces aren't quite gone.

Actually IntelliTXT gets loaded on the server side of the web site you are visiting. It's not connected to your computer at all, except that it only works in Internet Explorer. If you use Firefox, you shouldn't see it. Here's some more info.

http://en.wikipedia....wiki/IntelliTXT


Assuming that is your only remaining issue, your log looks clean to me and I think you should be good to go! :whistling:


Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • 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.

  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.
