Well, I apparently have been having the same problem that lots of other people are.. When I try to use Windows Explorer to open a directory, open my Recycle Bin, etc, Drwatson opens up and my machine locks up until I stop it in task manager.

I've run Adaware, FixIefts, CWShredder and CleanUp312 with no luck. I think that the virus is gone, but I can't seem to fix whatever the bug is. I appreciate the help.

Here's a HijackThis log I just ran..

Hi Pope Impious XXIII, welcome to Geeks to Go

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

1) First, I need you to move HijackThis to its own folder so that nothing gets deleted by mistake. The easiest way for you now would be as follows:

. Right Click on your Desktop
. Scroll down the menu to "New"
. Left click on "Folder"
. Name Folder "HJT"
. Drag current HijackThis icon from your desktop into the HJT Folder
. Run HJT from there.

2) Next, I need you to download some programs for use later. Do not use any of them until instructed to do do.

1. Download cwsserviceremove.zip and unzip it to your desktop

2. Download About:Buster from here. Once it is downloaded extract it to c:\aboutbuster and check for updates. Do NOT use it yet

3. Download CWShredder from here, install it, check for updates but again, don't use it yet.

4. Then, Download Ad-aware Second Edition here and install it. If you already have Ad-aware Second Edition skip to the next step.

Open adaware and Click the "Check for updates now" line on the main screen. CLick the "Connect" button on the webupdate screen.

If an update is available download it and install it. Click the "Finish" button to go back to the main screen.

Click on the "Settings" button (gear symbol in the upper right corner of the main status screen) in the quick launch toolbar to open the General settings screen. Check the "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal" setting and then click "Proceed" to save your changes

Click the "Scan now" button in the main menu on the left side of the main status screen or use the "Start" button in lower right corner. This will open the Preparing System Scan screen. Please deselect "Search for negligible risk entries", as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat. Then select "Use custom scanning options" and click "CUstomize". This will open the "Scan Settings Page. Make sure all of the following are On with a "green" checkmark:

Scan within archives
Scan active processes
Scan Registry
Deep-scan Registry
Scan my IE Favorites for banned URLs
Scan my Hosts File


Then click on the "Tweak" Button to open up the tweak settings.

Open up the Scanning Engine section and make sure all of the following are On with a "green" checkmark:

Scan registry for all users instead of current user only

Make sure the following is unchecked with a "red" X:

Unload recognized processes & modules during scan.

Open up the Cleaning Engine section and make sure all of the following are On with a "green" checkmark:

Always try to unload modules before deletion
During Removal, unload Explorer and IE if necessary
Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot.

Click the "Proceed" button to save settings.

Don't scan yet. We will do it in safe mode.

Ensure hidden files and folders are set to show;
  • 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.
Next, go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok

Scroll down and find the service called <NSS>. When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows.

Please disconnect from the Internet and unplug your modem for the duration of this fix You may want to print the rest of these instructions.

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode by tapping F8 while booting up and continue for the rest of the fix in SAFE MODE

While in safe mode, double click on the cwsserviceemove.reg file you downloaded at the beginning. Grant it permission to add the registry items.

Then Open CWShredder that you downloaded in the first step. Close all browser windows and click on the fix/next button.

Bring up task manager Ctrl-Alt-Del and end these processes, if they are present

C:\WINDOWS\ntue.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntsc.exe
C:\Program Files\ColorDesk Utilities\launcher.exe


Now find and delete these files, if you can't find one then don't worry.. just move on to the next one.

C:\WINDOWS\ntue.exe<<<File
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntsc.exe<<<File
C:\Program Files\ColorDesk Utilities<<<Folder
C:\WINDOWS\system32\msoa32.dll<<<File
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netfo32.exe<<<File
C:\WINDOWS\apilc.exe <<<File

Now run hijackthis and click the scan button, when it has finished scanning put a check against the following and click 'fix checked'

The following step is important as you may have several malware files in your temp directories.

Then browse to the C:\documents and settings\Your User Name (repeat for all other user names in documents and settings)\local settings\temp folder and delete all files and folders in it.
Then browse to the C:\Window\Temp folder and delete all files and folders in it.
Then in internet explore click tools>internet Options>General. Click on Delete Files make sure you get all offline content as well.

Now navigate to the c:\aboutbuster directory and double-click on aboutbuster.exe When the tool is open press the OK button, then the Start button, then the OK button, and then finally the Yes button. It will start scanning your computer for files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so. Post the log file in your next reply.

Scan with Adaware by opening it and clicking the "Next" button to start the scan.

When the scan is completed the Performing System Scan screen will change name to "Scan Complete".

Click the "Next" button to get to the Scanning Results screens where more information about the objects detected during the scan is available.

Click the Critical Objects Tab. In general all of the items listed will be bad. Be carefull with the Hosts file entries. Malware uses the hosts file to redirect you websites. However you can use the hosts file as a way to prevent malware. If the object has 127.0.0.1 in it, it should most likely not be deleted as it is protecting against unwanted sites. For more information on how to use a host file to protect yourself read here. So in short, you may or may not want to fix the hosts file entries.

To fix all the bad critical objects do the following:

Right click on one of them to open up the selection screen. Click the "Select All" button to select all entries. In general all should be selected with the exception of the good hosts file entries.

When all are selected Click "Next" and then "OK" in the pop-up window to confirm the removal.

Now reboot,and run hijackthis again and post a fresh log along with the about buster log

Regards,

Trevuren

Hi Pope Impius XXIII,

Contrary to popular belief, it is working. Now for some more cleanup.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Now let's do some work on your log:

First we need to make all files and folders VISIBLE:

Go to start>control panel>folder options>view (tab)
*choose to "show hidden files and folders,"
*uncheck the "hide protected operating system files" and the "hide extensions for know file types" boxes.
*Close the window with ok
*All hidden files will now be visible

Close all browser windows and RUN HijackThis.
. Click the SCAN button to produce a log.
. Click the Config button located in the lower right hand corner of the HijackThis window.
. When the new screen opens, find and click the Miscellaneous Tools button.
. Then choose the Open Process Manager button.
. From the list of processes, hilight the following items by clicking them, ONE AT A TIME, then DELETE them by clicking the KILL button:

B]C:\WINDOWS\system32\msry.exe
C:\WINDOWS\ipeu32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ImapiRox.exe[/B]

Once all items have been KILLED, click the Back button which will return you to the HijackThis main window. Now place a check mark beside each one of the following items:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {63FF24F4-3A79-8B02-6E12-81C9BAAFF3A0} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\msry.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ipeu32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\ipeu32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [msry.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\msry.exe
O16 - DPF: {523A69EE-9EC7-3AFA-C5B6-27751C4489CB} - http://209.8.161.54/1/rdgUS1022.exe
O16 - DPF: {52DE7F63-D113-5E2C-B6FC-0B83575F5CED} - http://209.8.161.54/1/rdgUS1022.exe
O23 - Service: Network Security Service (NSS) ( 11F#`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\apilc.exe (file missing)


Now with all the items selected, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window and Reboot Your System in Safe Mode

How to use the F8 method to Start Your Computer in Safe Mode

*Restart the computer.
*as soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
*Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
*press Enter.


Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files and delete them (if they are present):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\msry.exe
C:\WINDOWS\ipeu32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ImapiRox.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\msry.dll
C:\WINDOWS\apilc.exe

Exit Explorer, and REBOOT BACK INTO NORMAL MODE

Finally,RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everytjhing looks now.

Regards,

Trevuren

Hi Pope Impius XXIII,

According to my review, there is only one more entry to change for you to be clear.

O23 - Service: Network Security Service (NSS) ( 11F#`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\apilc.exe (file missing)

---------------------------------------------------------
Hi glen,

1) Download "service Filter" from : HERE to your Desktop so you can find it easily later. Do not use it now.

2) Open HijackThis, run a SCAN, Scroll down the list of entries until you reach the 023 entries. Here I need you to find the following entries:

O23 - Service: Network Security Service (NSS) ( 11F#`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\apilc.exe (file missing)

Write down, on a piece of paper for future reference, everythin that is in than line EXACTLY:

Close HijackThis.
---------------------------------
3. Now open Service Filter by clicking on its icon.
. Then click OK and OK again when prompted.
. A Wordpad text will appear on your desktop. Scroll down the list of services until you find the services containing the names you wrote down during the preceding procedure.
. For each 023 involved, carefully write down the name that appears beside the label "Service Name". These names will be required in the next step.
. Close the program when finished.
----------------------------
4. Now we need to work from the Command Prompt

Go Start>>Programs>>Accessories>>Command Prompt

. A black box will appear with a flashing cursor. At the cursor, type cd.. then cd.. again and repeat the procedure until the writing preceeding the cursor says C:\>

. Now carefully type the following: sc delete servicename, where servicename is replaced by the real service name that you found and have written down. Press ENTER.

..Close the Command Prompt box.
------------------------------------------
Now to stuff we are more familiar with:

Now let's do some work on your log:

First we need to make all files and folders VISIBLE:

Close all browser windows and RUN HijackThis.
. Click the SCAN button to produce a log.
. Place a check mark beside the following entry:

O23 - Service: Network Security Service (NSS) ( 11F#`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\apilc.exe (file missing)

Now with all the items selected, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window and Reboot Your System

Finally,RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everytjhing looks now.

Regards,

Trevuren

Fix worked.
Sorry not to post response before now. Wife went into the hospital this week and I've been busy. She's home now. Thank you for the help, and if I remember to post the log soon I will. Thanks immensely.
