Hi ash :)

I've discussed this with experts, and here's what we're going to do.

Step1 : Setting Auto DNS

Click Start > Control Panel. If you are using Windows XP's Category View, select the Network and Internet Connections category,otherwise double click on Network Connections. Right click on your default connection, usually Local Area Connection (LAN) for Cable and DSL, and click on Properties. Click the Networking tab. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS servers automatically. Press OK twice to get out of the properties screen and reboot if it asks to.

Step2 : HijackThis fix in Safe Mode

Now, we'll make a fix in Safe Mode.

Please save the following instructions in a notepad file on your desktop as you will not be able to access this website during this stage of the fix.

Restart your computer and as soon as it start booting up, continuously press F8. A menu will show up. Choose Safe Mode using the arrow keys and press enter. Note that Safe Mode might take some time to load, so please be patient.

Please re-open HijackThis and click Scan. Put a check next to the following entries presented in the windowm IF PRESENT: (Do NOT click Fix yet!)
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{41769AAE-BC93-46B4-8744-8C5CA69F5DBF}: NameServer =

Now, close all other windows but HijackThis, including Explorer windows (folders) and this window, and click Fix. Note: It is vital you close all other windows, otherwise the fix will not succeed.

Restart your computer. It will reboot back into Normal Mode.

Step3 : OTScanIt

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.
  • Open the OTScanIt folder and double-click on OTScanIt.exe to start the program (if you are running on Vista then right-click the program and choose Run as Administrator).
  • In the Drivers section click on Non-Microsoft.
  • Under Additional Scans click the checkboxes in front of the following items to select them:
    • Reg - BotCheck
      File - Additional Folder Scans
  • Do not change any other settings.
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Use the Add Reply button and Attach the information back here (Browse for the file, then click OK. After that, click the green UPLOAD button). I will review it when it comes in.

Step4 : Updating Java

Upgrading Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 6.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
  • Click on Continue.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u6-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

In your next reply, please attach the OTScanIt log and provide me a fresh DSS log as well as a report on the system's behavior.

I have removed all existing Java program and installed the one you told me to. I am no Expert Malware surgeon, but i can tell that 017 line is correct this time. I am going to reboot my computer like you told me to see if there are any strange behaviors. Then i will reply again.
Now the Fresh DSS log:

Different firewalls have different detection rates. PC Tools firewall, to be honest with you, is not the best of the firewalls. There are better free solutions, in fact. I don't really like ZoneAlarm either. A great free firewall that is one of the best in the market is Comodo Free Firewall (click the link). It's light and has great detection rates, plus it's not 'annoying' - it filters out legitimate entries automatically.

That address appears to be legitimate and belongs to your ISP - is your ISP is Primus Canada? If so, that is a legit entry. Do you have any additional questions? :)

Not sure - I think there is a log somewhere there, you can try looking at the settings. It will ask you if any non-Windows (or non recognized) process or IP address tries to access the internet, so don't worry. Also I want to point out that you should be only running one anti-virus and one firewall at a time, otherwise they conflict and cause lower detection rates and a system slowdown as well. :)

Well, it looks like you're clean. Below are some steps to keep your computer clean, as you asked.

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.

* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.

Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

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

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.
System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.

You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):
It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit
monthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scanners
weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!
