I have crashed 1 Laptop and 1 desktop in the past 2 weeks. I had to take my laptop to a Toshiba specialist who had to bypass a password protected Dos Root (which I did not set). The technician also installed a new Segate Hard drive. After some trouble shooting I found that when I logged in to my Yahoo (and I think my Gmail), the virus followed my as I logged in. I did not realize that until AFTER I GOT MY LAPTOP BACK. However, I have been very causcious and I don't think the virus or spyware has gone to far into my existing laptop. SOMETHING IS MYSTERIOUS THOUGH!! I see some pop ups here and there that seem like something is going on behind the scene's.
I have run Spybot Search and destroy and fixed all, I have run Ad-aware and fixed all, AVG Syware and will post on this page, ran a COMPLETE TEST from AVG, tried to run Panda but for some reason it woulnt run, and finally, executed the HiJack.exe.
Everything RAN CLEAN and one may think ALL IS WELL! I have destroyed too many files and Computers and spent alot of money to just leave it at that. So, I would appreciate someone looking at my Hijack log, and the AVG logs to see if something is WRONG. Something that I may be missing.

I have also run CC Cleaner and Windows Update and all is up to date.

Thanks for you help.

Hello ptw007, I'm currently reading over your log right now and I'll do my best to try to get your system clean :)

Since I'm still in training, there may be a slight delay between my posts because they must be checked by an expert.

Regards

Thaks Eddie,
No Problem, I just happy that I have a second set of eyes to help with my problem. I have usually been good at trapping these guys and deleting them, but this one is a bastar........! Just a quick note that I forgot to mention. The hacker or viruos get me when I log into my mail (not when I read my mail cause I know better it you read the mail it executes. When I login, this Malware knows my username and password on Yahoo and gmail and as soon as I enter them and login, my address to those sites get re- retouted to a fake Yahoo or fake Gmail. I accedently logged into yahoo and few days ago and I immediately noticed some strange things happening. I just can't find it.
Take your time as I know you guys are busy plus I know that your spending more time on mine which is good.
Thanik soo much Eddie.

I am attaching the hiJack log, the combofix log and the Jotti's Malware scan log for your review. Please review and provide instructions for what I need to do , if anything.
Thanks

Eddie,
Another quick note that may be a critical issue. Somewhat often, i receive a pop up rundll32.exe - Bad image C:/Windows/sytem32/ShimEng.dll (is not a valid windows image). What the heck is this. I did a google search on it and came across this link (but I could'nt run the applications that was listed on the Geeks to Go log (http://www.geekstogo...ys-t30743.html. Hope this provide the info you needed

Thanks

That's okay, I understand about the notifications, as its happened to me before :)

With regards to the original issue, all logs are coming up clean. However, you do need system Restore enabled, as it appears to be disabled. But, we'll enable that once everying is sorted :)

Also, running p2p prgrams is not advisable, as they are a major scource of viruses/malware.


Now, with regards to the second problem, is this happening online, or offline? If its offline, does it occur randomly, or when installing something?

See if this helps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. At the command prompt, type the following lines and press ENTER after each line:


regsvr32 ShimEng.dll

4. Click OK when you receive the message that DllRegisterServer in FileName succeeded.
5. Type exit.

Eddie,
Things have gone from bad to worse and even more worse. In a matter a few hours from my last post. Error are poping up everywhere. The ShimEngr.dll pop up when I try to load certain apps like, add/remove, spybot , wireless connection, and misc others. In addition, I am getting multple errors when I try to do a restart. Power saver problem is one, and I hav'nt had the chance to cathch the others. Through out the day, I have been google serching the errors (from tech forum logs to include Geeks to Go and Have followed the instruction on that post, but that was a bad Idea. it's locking up all the time and in fact it had taken OVER KASPERNSKY INTERNET SECURITY 7 --- How CAN IT DO THAT, ITS THE BEST. Now, when I restart, Kasp. tries to load but an error says this package ( is locked by the admin). So it wont work now. Finnally, after several attempts to do a restart, with no luck, I powerd off by holding down the power button for 5 seconds. Now I am back up but in Safe mode with Networking. The problem now is, I cannot connect into my wireless router for some reason. I am sending you this message frm another computer. What can we do? Is there any hope. Please tell me yes.
Thanks Pat

Can you try the above with the ShimEngr.dll, and if it doesn't work, post the message that appears. As for the other error's, can you post what they are, as in if its a file not working (which one), etc.

Can you remember what you've already tried, after searching the web? If not, its okay.

Are you the Administrator of this computer, or is it part of a network?

Eddie,
Sorry once again. My computer has been down for 3 days from this whole thing. Now my wireless adapter/Network/ everything is totally non functional. I have spent 2 days trying to fix in though dos and it was a waste. I am now (as of 3 hours ago, back online via and Eithernet LAN (wired) connection. I'm not sure why I did'nt think of that before.
BUt again, I think that issue is tied into the SHimmENG.dll problem.
Now,I did run the regsvr32 application (shimEng.dll) and an error responded " SimEng.dll was loaded but the DLL REGISTER Server entry was not found". Any ideas.

TO answer other question from you. I am the computer admin (just by default_) however, orinianlly I was a novice and over the past 6 months or so, I have really learned the inner workings of my computer. I am somewhat advanced now with alot of things.
In regard's to the re-occurence of this problem. THis is one that had baffled many forums and actually, the TOshiba tech who brought it back to life (new hard drive) , has'nt heard of this type of virus ( if that what it is). It DOES (or acually DID) happen online in YAHOO MAIL . At first I thougt it was Google , but have narrow my focus to Yahoo. After the original crash (1 month ago), I needed to use other comp's for email etc and while logging into my mail, That's when things started to happen ( 2 computers were trashed the same way). I don't know if this makes any sense but this virus , actually hackers have attached somethhing to my mail (i think). I noticed when logging in, weeks ago, that at the bottom right of IE7, thaddresss were just flying by with redirects, false routing, hidden identity trackers, etc which usually brought the brower to be hung where I needed to restart. I learned my lesson, though , after the 4th time logging into mail. I really never would have thought that was where it was (still not sure). Anyways, I have not logged into Yahoo in weeks and I have now just begun to retrust Google. I have been using my MSN/Hotmail email program for the past month. Now remember, upon my intial awareness of the this virus/hacker, I was always online - that's when it started, Not after downloading any software, or going through unused files. offline.

I think it's important to note that (I think thanks to Kapernsky Internet Security 7), this time around I have been able to keep this virus in check. It's not having the opportunity to start is damage again. I have set so many TEMPORARY security issues on and offline and my eyes are always open for strange activity.. Other that the Rundll.exe, Shimeng.dll issue , and My wireless Router being completely disabled, My computer is runny very fast and it's responsive. I continually runn Adware, Spybot, XP diagnotic tools, and many other app's to either identity the problem or at least keeep it at bay. Oh, another error that I keep getting is "Toshiba Power saver.exe has a critical error , or, somethinglike that. One other thing, the ShimEng.dlll issue is happening more and more frequently as days go buy. It happens when I do a Systems Property view, Add/Remove progam in Control Panel, and many other Systems applications. I have download this new tool from Microsoft that I just wonderfull (New Windows Support Tools). It outlines several .dll process's that I can run via the DOS prompt. It's taken ME Hours upon hours and days upon days to learn this thing. It really is a great to however , to learn and know how to run in dos. In retrospect, [bleep], it's has'nt really been able to help me with these problems though.

I really hope that my rambling is not a waste of your time, I just really thought that I should be AS DETAILED AS I POSSIBLY CAN BE. This promblem SEEMS TO BE very Advanced.

ONe final thing. In regard to your question about my Google search, I have so many saved bookmarks of where I went, but to give you details on which site gave me what, forget about it (terrbile memory). I remember specifically though the geeks to go Capture that was saved in Google that seemed to relflect my problem (her registry even looked similar to mine). I just remember that what was suggested in that topic post, would not run for me ( the links/software that was to be run by that person at the time).

Hope this helps,

pat

Sorry for the late reply, my cable connection died due to the weather over here :)

Do you have the original copy of Windows XP on disk? If not, if XP was already loaded on the system, try this:

Go to Start | Run and type the following:

sfc /scannow

And press OK.

This will replace any corrupt or damaged files on your system.
