Hi bsketlady,

Welcome to Geeks To Go,

I'm sorry that we haven't got to you until now, but the forum can get hectic at times.

I am sage5 and I will be helping you with this problem.

First I need you to download the following tools & save them to your Desktop.
OTScanIt.exe

Install OTScanIt:
  • Double-click on OTScanIt.exe to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt on your desktop.
  • Close any open browsers.
  • If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTScanIt, allow it to run.
  • Open the OTScanit folder and double-click on OTScanit.exe to start the program.
  • Make sure that the Non Microsoft option is clicked in the following Headings:
    • Processes
    • Services
    • Drivers
    • Registry
  • Click Yes under Rootkit scan
  • Make sure that you tick these in the Additional Scans box
    • Reg - BotCheck
    • Reg - Security Settings
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • The program will be scanning large amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a while to complete.
  • When the scan is done Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Save the file in the new OTScanIt folder as Scan1.txt
If the log is too large to post, use the Reply button, scroll down to the Attachments section and attach the Notepad file here.

"Authentication Packages"=hex(7):6d,00,73,00,76,00,31,00,5f,00,30,00,00,00,00,\
00
  • Paste it into Notepad. Right click in the window and select Paste. (or use Ctrl+V)

  • The fix should only take a very short time.
  • When the fix is done, click the OK button in the message box.
  • Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix.
    This file is saved in the Moved Files folder and is named in date_time format (mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log format, so e.g. 04012008_082852.log)
  • I need you to Post the text from that file back here.
I will review the information when it comes back in.

Also let me know of any problems you encountered performing the steps above or any continuing problems you are still having with the computer.


When you have done that, run a scan using Malwarebytes AntiMalware:

Run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:

  • When the program starts, click on the Update tab & then on the Check for Updates button
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Save the entire report as C:\mbam.txt
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Please post me the text from C:\mbam.txt & the log file from OTScanIT as your next Reply.


By the way, bumping you own thread once it has been answered will not get a speedier Reply.

I suspect that you have actually used Wordpad, not Notepad. They are not the same thing.
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories & check to see if you have an icon for Notepad.
If it is not there, or if you click on Notepad, but WordPad opens, notify me so we can correct the error before proceeding.
Otherwise, if you just got the wrong application, by mistake, retry the steps above.

Cheers,

You don't need to upload the files to me, just use copy & paste from the text files, as you did in your opening post.

That is all looking pretty good.
Just as a check, can you please get an online scan from Kaspersky done.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  • Make sure the following is checked.
    • Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Archives
      Mail databases
  • Click on My Computer under Scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.

Hi bsketlady,

You seem to have a potential issue with your Outlook backup file (C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\archive.pst)

It appears that you may have saved an email infected with this code.
The simplest way to remove this is to delete the existing file, & perform another backup of your data in Outlook.

See Here & look midway down the page for
Option # 1 : Manual Archive Procedure

If, however, you want to manually remove the issue, you will have to open the Archive.pst from within Outlook, & check all the emails in it.
See Here & look at the To open it while Outlook is running: section

This description from Kaspersky should point you to what you will need to locate & delete:
Here

Once you have done that, your PC should be clean.

Clean out cookies, temp files etc:
Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.

    If you use Firefox browser
    • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    • Click the Empty Selected button.

      NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
    If you use Opera browser
    • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    • Click the Empty Selected button.

      NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.

Cleanup with OTScanIt:
  • Please double-click OTScanIt.exe to run it.
  • Click the Clean up button
  • Click YES at the next prompt (list downloaded, Do you want to begin cleanup process?)
  • Click Yes to the reboot.

To Clear Restore points, please do the following:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel.
  • Double-click the System icon.
    • NOTE: If the System icon is not visible, click "View all Control Panel options" to display it.
  • Click the System Restore tab.
  • Put a check by Disable System Restore.
  • Click Apply, OK, OK. Click Yes when you are prompted to restart Windows.
After reboot, you must turn System Restore back on:
  • Go back to the Troubleshooting tab.
  • UNcheck Disable System Restore.
  • Click Apply, OK, OK. Click Yes when you are prompted to restart Windows.

Lastly, some extra or better security for your PC:

The programs recommended below are freeware alternatives to some of your security software & might reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:-

Spyware Prevention:
Spyware Blaster by JavaCool Software, prevents spyware installing and consumes no system resources.
IE/SpyAd, stops suspect sites loading ActiveX, popups etc onto your PC. An excellent tutorial is Here

Spyware Detection:
[url="http://"http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.htm"]Malwarebytes Anti-Malware[/url] is my favourite here.

Anti-Virus:
The first line of defence, especially since some will now detect trojans as well.
Avira's Antivir PersonalEdition Classic and Grisoft's Avast! Free Edition are among the best freebies.
*Please note* You should never install more than one anti-virus program on a PC, as it will cause conflicts.

Firewall:
A Firewall is an essential tool in the security of any PC connected to the Internet.
Sunbelt Personal Firewall and Comodo are both excellent freeware.

Alternate Browsers:
Thankfully, there are now some excellent alternatives to MS Internet Explorer. They offer better security, more stability, and better speed.
A couple of good examples are: Firefox and Opera

Other Updates:
Vital security patches and updates are available for Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer at the Windows Update Site
It is equally important to update the other security software you use, on a regular basis.

Further reading about these issues is available in a very good article: How did I get infected in the first place ? (by Tony Klein and dvk01)

All the best & safe surfing in the future,

What exactly is the problem you are getting from ad.yieldmanager.com?
Is it popup windows, internet explorer redirection?
Please be as specific as you can.
