Sorry, I am new to this process. Please be patient. My pc is a HP Pavillion. I am running XP Home Edition. My kids have moved out but while at home they had downloaded all kinds of music and games (and who knows what else). I have ran the tools you suggested as well as some others (Ad-Aware, Spysubtract, CW Shredder, Spybot) I ran the HiJack This program and have posted the log below. I deleted a few things that I felt were suspicious but am not sure about the rest.
One comment about Webroot. It seems to be horribly slow loading. My subscription is about to run out and I'm not so sure I want to renew but am thinking I need to go to another utility. Any suggestions? :whistling:
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a great day.

Hello Randy and welcome to Geeks to Go

As an introduction, please note that I am not Superhuman, I do not know everything, but what I do know has taken me years to learn. I am happy to pass on this information to you, but please bear in mind that I am also fallible.

Please note that you should have Administrator rights to perform the fixes. Also note that multiple identity PC’s (family PC’s) present a different problem; please tell me if your PC has more than one individual’s setting, but continue with the fix.

Before we get underway, you may wish to print these instructions for easy reference during the fix, although please be aware that many of the required URLs are hyperlinks in the red names shown on your screen. Part of the fix may require you to be in Safe Mode, which will not allow you to access the internet, or my instructions! (Click the Options drop down near the upper right of the topic. Select Print this topic.)

Please uninstall SpywareBot as it is a rogue programme; see here for further detail: http://www.castlecop...list-12902.html

My opinion on SpySweeper is that it is just about the best on the market. I personally think that it just has the edge over AVGas. I am not fond of Norton, however, I much prefer NOD32; it’s the best you can buy.

You have too many antispyware programmes all running in real-time. This is bad practice and will cause slowness and conflicts.

Please disable SpySweeper, as it may hinder the removal of some entries. You can re-enable it after you're clean. To disable SpySweeper: Open it click > Options over to the left then > Program options > Uncheck "load at windows startup". Over to the left click "shields" and uncheck all there. Uncheck "home page shield". Uncheck "automatically restore default without notification".

We'll need to disable (not uninstall) Intermute's SpySubtract, since it might interfere with other program(s) we might be using to 'clean' off your system.

Also please disable AVGas Guard from running as it will hinder our attempts to change anything. Right click on the multicoloured icon with an S, in the taskbar (near the clock) and uncheck Resident Shield. The icon will change to a grey colour.

When your PC has been declared clean, please only enable one of those three programmes to run in real-time. All others should be used as “on demand” scanners. Having more than one antispyware programme running in real-time will cause slowness and even conflicts.

To start please download the following programmes, we will run them later. Please save them to a place that you will remember, I suggest the Desktop:

Killbox by Option^Explicit
CCleaner
combofix.exe

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

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [spywarebot] C:\Program Files\SpywareBot\SpywareBot.exe -boot
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [wmpasf] C:\WINDOWS\System32\wmpasf.exe

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

Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel (if present):(click Start>Settings>Control Panel)

SpywareBot

Please notify me of any other programmes that you don’t recognise in that list in your next response

Please install Killbox by Option^Explicit.
  • 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\ALCXMNTR.EXE
C:\Program Files\SpywareBot\SpywareBot.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wmpasf.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.

There is almost certainly bound to be some junk (leftover bits and pieces) on your system that is doing nothing but taking up space. I would recommend that you run CCleaner. Install it, check the default setting in the left-hand pane, ensure you uncheck old prefetch data found under the Windows tab, and under the heading of Applications, Utilities uncheck AVGas Anti-Spyware then click Analyze> Run Cleaner. You may be fairly surprised by how much it finds. Also click Issues then Scan for issues – fix selected issues

Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

When it has finished, it will produce a log. Please post that log in your next reply.

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

Post back a fresh HijackThis log (from normal mode) and I will take another look. (2 logs in total please).

EDIT - correct bad typos left in by my senile brain cell.

Crusty,
Thanks for the quick response.

Yes my pc has 4 profiles, 2 of which I am going to eliminate. Both kids have moved out.

I am moving forward with your instructions and, not to worry, I understand no one is infallible. You certianly have more knowledge that I do. I really appreciate your help.

I assume by SpywareBot you are talking about Spybot S&D? On this assumption I am removing it.

No, Spybot is excellent. Have a look in the Add and Remove programmes for SpywareBot, it is showing up on your log, so it should be on your PC. All the bad programmes try to have a similar name to the good ones.

Uh Oh--I uninstalled spybot.
I can't find the SpywareBot in the add/remove programs.

Anyway I have completed your instructions and below is the fresh HJT log as well as the combo.fox log. I'm not sure of what you meant by (3 logs in total)

Also, I see a couple of programs in Add/Remove programs that I am not sure about:
JS2E Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 3
Live Update BVRP Software

Should future attachments be attached or pasted into the post?
Once again, thanks for the help.

I will check back in a bit. I have to go put up Christmas lights before the better half gets upset.

Randy

Hello again Randy

When I make errors, they are good ones. In my original post I made two errors (that I can see). The first was to leave a paragraph in that should have been removed, so you don't have vundo or anything like it, in fact I always reckon that you don't see much malware on a PC with SpySweeper on it, because it is so efficient, and the other error was at the very end, I hit the 3 key rather than the 2 key, which is why 3 logs made no sense to you; let's call them senior moments. I will have to correct my original as they are read by trainess, and that will drive them insane.

Spywarebot has been removed, so you don't have to find it, but you may find the folder still on your system. If you right click on Start and choose Explore, navigate to C:\Program Files\SpywareBot\ You can delete the folder and anything inside it too.

You can download Spybot by clicking this link SPYBOT S&D

This entry in Add and Remove Programmes is legitimate but it needs updating: JS2E Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 3

Updating Java and Clearing Cache
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Java Icon (coffee cup) in the Control Panel.
  • It will say "Java Plug-in" under the icon.
    Please find the update button or tab in the Java Control Panel. Update your Java then reboot.
  • If you are unable to update you can manually update by going here:
  • After the reboot, go back into the Control Panel and double-click the Java Icon.
  • Under Temporary Internet Files, click the Delete Files button.
  • There are three options in the window to clear the cache - Leave ALL 3 CheckedDownloaded Applets
    Downloaded Applications
    Other Files
  • Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window
    Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
  • Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.
The other programme you queried: Live Update BVRP Software is also legitimate

I understand that you have gone to User Accounts in the Control Panel and deleted two accounts, which leaves two, at least one should have admin status.

Now that the HijackThis log for the main account is clean, you have a choice to make.

You can either post into this thread a fresh HJT log for each of the other accounts, from normal mode and I will analyse them and give you instruction necessary for any fix. Please name or number the logs to save any confusion.

Or you can go to User Accounts in the Control Panel and delete all the accounts other than the one I have been working on.

Windows by default will create a folder for each account and place it on the desktop with all the files and documents relative to that account in it, so nothing is lost.

If you then wish to have multiple accounts again, just reboot normally and create the account again from User Accounts (takes 5 minutes).

I have no preference since it is you doing all the work, for me it is just analysing and writing fixes.

:whistling: Crusty (I feel strange calling you that),

Things are looking up.
I did as you suggested and deleted all other accounts. I recreated my wife's account but have a question. Is there a way to reinstate here desktop and settings from the files that were saved? I created a new account but it is generic.

Also, I have a multitude of anti-malware on my desktop that I have installed and ran before today. What are your suggestions as far as what to keep running and what to keep for periodic runs?

Thanks again, You have saved me much time and headaches.

You are indeed "THE MAN"

Hello again Randy

Please call me Phil, it is slightly better than the other name my parents were contemplating; Hilary, I suppose I should be grateful they didn't choose Tensing Norgay.

You have deleted all accounts other than your own, so windows should have created a folder for each of the other accounts with files relevant to that account within. If you now wish to recreate an account, for your wife for example, then you just create it again in User Accounts, however, the history of the previous account will no longer be on the PC, so it a start again effort, but only takes perhaps 10 minutes to get it as it was.

The antimalware programmes you have amassed have their use, but I would never contemplate keeping all of them. Just keep the ones you like and delete the rest.

Before giving you the final instructions and just to put you back on the road to recovery, I am going to recommend that you download and run this:

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Reboot

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run defragmenter

Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial It is a 30-day free trial.

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Disable your anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Check the anti virus programme is running after the reboot.

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

Click optimize and improve then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

How's the PC running now?

:whistling: Phil,

The PC is running great. Before, it was so slow, honestly it would take a good 5 minutes to start up and load my user account. It's up in a snap now. I thought you be be asleep by now. It's getting late across the pond. Anyway I will follow your last instructions and get back with you.
Please post your info so I can help a little. I will be glad to donate to the cause.
You have been most helpful and I really appreciate it.

Phil,

Things look good here. Ran the utilities you suggested. Only remaining pest is on shutdown I'm getting an NVIDIA Twin View Window ending program dialog. Can select to end program and lose settings or wait till it ends itself. I know this is related to the video card but not sure how to correct. Any suggestions?

Hello again Randy

I'm glad to see we are making some progress.

The following is an optional fix, it's entirely up to you if you want to really speed up your PC. All of these start up entries are not essential. Disabling them will not harm your PC in any way, and it may also get rid of your graphics card error.

Rescan with HijackThis. Close all programmes leaving only HijackThis running. Place a checkmark or tick against the following:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [StorageGuard] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sonic\Update Manager\sgtray.exe" /r
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [hpsysdrv] c:\windows\system\hpsysdrv.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HPDJ Taskbar Utility] C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpztsb09.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HPHUPD05] "C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\{45B6180B-DCAB-4093-8EE8-6164457517F0}\hphupd05.exe"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_03\bin\jusched.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Google Desktop Search] "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Desktop Search\GoogleDesktop.exe" /startup
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [NVIEW] "rundll32.exe" nview.dll,nViewLoadHook
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [swg] "C:\Program Files\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\1.2.908.5746\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe"
O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Google Updater.lnk = C:\Program Files\Google\Google Updater\GoogleUpdater.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
O4 - Global Startup: SpySubtract.lnk = C:\Program Files\interMute\SpySubtract\SpySub.exe


Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Hopefully, you will notice, on a reboot, the difference.

I have sent you a Personal Message with details. Thanks for requesting them.

I'll send you the final instructions for the clean up in my next post. Has the shutdown eror now gone?

Thank you for your generosity. Herewith are final instructions.

Congratulations! your new log is clean. :whistling: Just a little bit more to do to prevent further infection.

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programmes changing them. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
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. Reboot.

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.
I recommend going to the following link and update as recommended by Microsoft. This adds more security and extra features including a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer. Microsoft Update

MVPS Hosts file This replaces your current HOSTS file with one that will restrict known ad sites from serving you unsolicited advertisements. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is the IP of your local computer.

SiteAdvisor download this plug-in for your browser and it will alert you of a known bad site for FREE.

Now that everything is fixed, I suggest that you consider getting these programmes to help keep the computer clean:

SPYWARE BLASTER - Blocks bad ActiveX items from installing on your computer.
WINDOWS DEFENDER - With daily updates and scans, this programme offers good security against malware.
AD-AWARE PERSONAL – A fine free malware detector and removal programme
SPYBOT S&D – Excellent free spyware detector and removal programme
GOOGLE TOOLBAR - Blocks many unwanted pop-ups in Internet Explorer.
FIREFOX - Safer alternative to the Internet Explorer web browser.
AVG ANTIVIRUS FREE EDITION - Free antivirus programme if you currently are not using one.
ZONEALARM - Free firewall programme if you currently are not using one (Windows XP has a built-in firewall).

Remember to update these frequently.

Please note that whilst there is nothing wrong in having more than one antispyware programme for “on demand” scanning, having two or more antivirus systems is not recommended as they may well cause conflicts and slowness.

You may also want to read "How did I get infected in the first place" to learn how to better secure your computer.

Be sure to keep your Windows, antispyware and antivirus updated. :blink:

It just remains for me to wish you happy safe surfing; I will leave this thread open for a few days in case of misfortune.
