I cleaned this computer 5 days ago with Bazooka and spybot. removed over 150 instances of spyware. 2 days later it started getting popups stating it was infected with spyware and to click here for more information on how to clean it. It woudl take you to a site called antispywareupdates.net. Fortunately, this ws already being blocked by IE 6.

Today I ran a scan with CA antivirus, Lava Soft Ad-Aware 2007, SuperAntispyware, AVG Antispyware and finally Panda Active scan. It still showed active spyware instances. I am no longer getting the antispyware, but my task manager is disabled. That may be the last of it, but am not sure.

When I cleaned it Tuesday I had to reenble the taks manager and the active desktop. I thought then I should do this step, but hoped I got it all.

I am running winxp pro sp2, patched to today.

here are the logs:

Hi dwhippet,

Welcome to Geeks to Go!
My name is sage5, and I will be helping you with this problem.

Please download the following & save to your Desktop:

The real time protection used by programs like Windows Defender can interfere with malware cleaning procedures.
Please follow the steps below to temporarily disable Windows Defender
  • Open Windows Defender
  • Click Tools
  • Click General Settings
  • Scroll down to Real Time Protection Options
  • Uncheck Turn on Real Time Protection (recommended)
  • After you uncheck this, click on the Save button
  • Close Windows Defender
Once your system has been deemed free from malware, you can re-enable Windows Defender's Real Time Protection.



Fix the Registry with a Reg file:
  • Please open a new Notepad file by clicking Start\All Programs\Accessories\Notepad
  • Copy the text from the following Code box, by highlighting all the text and right click, Select Copy. (or use the Ctrl+C keyboard shortcut)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\winlogon]
"Userinit"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\userinit.exe,"
  • Paste it into Notepad. Right click in the window and select Paste. (or use Ctrl+V)
  • Save the file to the Desktop, make sure Type is All Files, and name it UserinitFix.reg

Run SDFix:

(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
  • Choose your usual account.
  • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

Start the Smitfraud scan:
  • Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
  • Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter". A text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present). It is saved as C:\rapport.txt
  • Please copy/paste the content of that file into your next reply.

**If the tool fails to launch from the Desktop, please move SmitfraudFix.exe directly to the root of the system drive (usually C:), and launch from there.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Run Deckard's System Scanner:
  • Close all other windows before proceeding.
  • Double click on the dss.exe file on your Desktop and follow the prompts.
  • Scans will run, and 2 text files will open in Notepad.
  • Close both of the text files.
These files are C:\Deckard\System Scanner\main.txt & extra.txt. I will need you to copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt, extra.txt, C:\SDFix\Report.txt & C:\rapport.txt in your next reply.
