Hi mismi,

2 Questions:

1. Did we get the Firefox login issue sorted out?

2. How did you get on with the firewall & the shutdown issue?

Hi sage5.

Sorry for the slow reply. I`m still new to this forum and I didn`t realize that you had sent a reply because it was on another page that I didn`t see as being there.

No Sir, I haven`t worked through this fix yet. I went to work yesterday and my wife and I went out last night, so I`m just getting back into this. I`m pretty slow when It comes to computer issues because I`m learning as I go.

Thank you for checking back with me! I`ll get back with you shortly on this.

Thanks sage5,

mismi

Hi sage5.


Well, I did as you asked. I re-installed Firefox as you said by copying my Firefox profile folder to the desktop/downloaded the Firefox setup file to there as well/uninstalled Firefox/ (using Revo uninstaller - more on this in a bit) re-booted and reinstalled Firefox with no problems and it seems (for the moment) to be working OK.

However, I keep getting signed off from my Google home page when I close Firefox, even though the Yahoo account works fine by keeping me signed in for the maximum 2 week period with the same browser cooking settings of allowing cookies until I close Firefox. When I check, Firefox is allowing cookies from Google.com & Yahoo.com. Those two are the only ones that I allow to stay and are stored on my computer. I can check the View Page Info with Firefox 3 by right clicking on the Google page to see what the permission setting is and instead of just allowing cookies for the session which is the default setting, I check Allow and it works like it should. Then I go back to the View Page Info and reset it back to the default setting of Allow For Session and it will work for a while before reverting back to signing me off every time that I close Firefox. One would say that it is doing exactly as it should with the Allow For Session selection that I am choosing by signing me out after I close Firefox. The question that I have is; why is my Yahoo account working just fine with the same Allow For Session setting selection. I don`t mean to be long winded and get bogged down here with this, but the last part of this post may explain the reason for my elevated eyebrows.

Oh yes, when I read your first reply/post to my problem, I saw that you use the COMODO firewall, so I began to do a little research on it. As usual, you can find people that like and dislike any product. Several of those that didn`t care for it for whatever the reason used Revo Uninstaller to remove it. So I did some research on that as well. Glad I did. On my first post regarding the problem that I was having to this forum, I said "I had just purchased the new Tecra and immediately deleted Norton then loaded AVG and updated". Or so I thought. Today before I uninstalled Firefox, I decided to download Revo Uninstaller. When I pulled up Revo to see the list of programs on my machine to compare it to the list in the Windows Add or Remove utility, guess what was there? Yeah you`re right, Norton 360. Hidden from view. All 3.4 mbs and 167 objects of the program waiting to be installed just like I left it when I thought that it was uninstalled. Revo took care of that nicely. Funny how it was not on the list of programs in the Add/Remove utility. Just a thought.

Now here is the portion of the post that causes me concern:

While working on this today, after re-activating AVG Resident Shield, I had a pop-up window from AVG telling me that it had found the BackDoor.Hupigon virus and gave me the option to move this to the Virus Vault, which I did. Then over an hour later, I got another security notice warning me of the "Potentially Unwanted Program"; HideExec.EV and over an hour later I received that security warning again. I`m wondering if the virus is trying to use the PUP HideExec.EV to launch itself and run unseen in the background out of the system restore points?

Here is what is in the AVG vault:


Infection type: Infection
Virus found: BackDoor.Hupigion
Path to file: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{77D9D35D-FC5B-4939-BA43-F3D91D209A31}\RP28\A0002163.old 8/30/2008, 1:14:12 PM

Infection type: PUP
Potentially harmful program: HideExec.EV
Path to file: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{77D9D35D-FC5B-4939-BA43-F3D91D209A31}\RP28\A0002181.exe 8/30/2008, 2:01:54 PM

Infection type: PUP
Potentially harmful program: HideExec.EV
Path to file: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{77D9D35D-FC5B-4939-BA43-F3D91D209A31}\RP28\A0002327.exe 8/30/2008, 3:26:58 PM




This is where I am at this point.


Thanks again for your help sage5. Really

Hi mismi ,

To the best of my knowledge, any files in the C:\System Volume Information\_restore{77D9D35D-FC5B-4939-BA43-F3D91D209A31} folders are in "quarantine" & cannot run, so I'd say that those warnings are probably triggered by:
the Indexing Service scanning your C:\ drive in the background, and AVG's real time protection doing its job.

Lets go the general cleanup first to get rid of thos files:

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.


Time for some housekeeping:
  • Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix and tools used in the removal of malware
    • Click START then RUN
    • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /u, it needs to be there.
      Posted Image


    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.


That should fix the issue of those files, but if you want you could do a Panda ActiveScan as a check.
http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button.
  • Enter your Country, State/Province & email address
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it.
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Perhaps as C:\panda log.txt
Please note where this log is saved, I will need you to post the contents, with a fresh HijackThis log.



That Google login issue could be due to a number of things.
I think that you really should start a new thread in the Web Browsers and Email forum

Hi sage5.

Thank you for the awesome responses to the malware issues I`ve had.

Yes, you`re right. I knew that I was pushing the envelope by discussing something as off topic as the Google log in issue.

Hope that you`re having a good afternoon down under.

I`ll get back with you shortly.

Hi sage5.

1. I ran ATF.
2. I uninstalled Combofix.
3. I cleared the restore points/re-booted/turned System Restore back on.
4. I ran a scan at http://www.pandasoft.../activescan.htm .
5. I ran a fresh Hijackthis scan.

Question; do you suggest leaving the Windows Recovery Console installed? Do you have this on your machine?

Here are the scan logs.

Hi mismi ,

You have done a great job with this & I think we are done now.
I would like you to get rid of one more non functioning service using the batch file below:

Delete bad services:
Please hgihlight all of the text in the Code box below.
Now, copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the following to a new Notepad file.
Save the file, making sure that the Save as type box is set to "All Files", and name it FixServices.bat Please save it on your desktop.

@echo off
sc stop CLTNetCnService
sc delete CLTNetCnService
exit

Double click FixServices.bat. A window will open and close. This is normal.

Now you can delete the FixServices.bat file.
All Done.

Question; do you suggest leaving the Windows Recovery Console installed? Do you have this on your machine?

If you can put up with the extra few seconds on the startup routine, I think it is a good thing to have installed.

However, if you really want to remove the Recovery Console, Microsoft provides the instructions Here

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.

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.

Hi sage5.

I deleted bad services as you instructed by copying the code contents into a All Files type file that I name FixServices.bat and saved to the desktop. Then double clicked & deleted the file.

Thank you for that.

I realize that I may need to start a new topic for this, but I have a question.

Two days ago, (before I did the Delete bad services fix) at start up, I began to receive a notification window informing me that my Intel Active Management Technology was disabled. How can I re-enable this? I`ve tried but as of yet I can`t seem to do this.

Thank you for all your help sage5.

That is really odd given that all the Services listed in the HJT log are unchanged & all processes seem to still be running

It's hard to imagine how, but could it be something that Revo might have done? The timing looks about right.
Did you use the Tools > Autorun Manager to untick anything?

If not, you may have to uninstall it & reinstall it.
You should be able to do that via the Add/remove programs page of the Control Panel & using the CD or DVD that came with your laptop.
I am assuming that would have been part of the preloaded software that shipped on it.

Otherwise you might get a new copy of this at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp
Note: You will need to put in you model type/number, Operating System etc.

Or you might be able to get help from the folks at Notebookreview.com or forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com

Cheers,

I haven`t tried that feature in Revo yet, however, not knowing enough about the Comodo firewall at this point, I was looking at "My Pending Files" and while there I clicked on the "Look Up" feature on a file. When I did this, the program sent it to a list of "Certified Files" and I don`t know if I can access that list just to see which file was sent. But whatever...I suspect this is something that I inadvertently did and I will go through Toshiba to rectify this.

Sage5 - You have been a great help to me. I very much appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge (as well as your time) through assistance to others, such as myself. I owe you.


All the best to you sage5.
