I have read the Malware Cleaning Guide on Geeks to Go and have carefully followed all of the steps.

My computer problem appears to be caused by ad.yieldmanager.com. One manifestation of the problem is that sometimes, e.g., in Yahoo Movies, when I use the BACK arrow to navigate back to the prior page I see "http://ad.yieldmanager.com . . . " flash and disappear quickly in the status bar at the bottom of the page (so quickly that I don't have time to read the entire URL) followed just as quickly by "res://ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm" - although it's too fast for me to be sure of that exact URL either. The result is that a frame on the prior page that I'm navigating BACK to displays the error message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" in Internet Explorer 7, or a similar message in FireFox. Those frames on the prior pages did not previously contain an error.
These messages sometimes also come up for an entire page, not just a frame, when I'm attempting to navigate to a particular webpage. In those cases I have verifed using another computer that the webpages exist. I can see no discernable pattern as to why I can successfully display some webpages and frames and not others.

As requested in the Malware Cleaning Guide, here are my HijackThis and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware logs. I would appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

Hi Ahimsa,

Welcome to the site! :) My name's Matt T and I'll be helping clean up your computer. :) I'm currently looking over your log. I am still in training here, so there might be a delay between my replies as they need to be checked by an expert before I can post them. I'll need a bit of time to research your log fully, so please bear with me.
  • Some instructions may need to be printed off or saved for reference during the fix as some of the steps required will be done in Safe Mode, and you'll be unable to access this thread at those times.
  • To make sure that you receive an email when I reply to this topic, please click here and check that this topic is listed under Malware Removal - HijackThis™ Logs Go Here.
  • To come back to this topic easily, please bookmark it.
  • Please don't use any of the tools you download or try to fix your computer yourself without specific instruction. Some of them are dangerous and could damage your computer if used incorrectly.
  • Please work through the fix in the order it's posted, if you can't complete a step, skip it and tell me in your next post.
  • If there's anything you don't understand, you have a question, or you're unsure of the instructions please don't be afraid to ask and post here for clarification before proceeding with the fix.
  • When posting logs, please ensure Wordwrap is turned off in Notepad (to check, open Notepad click on Format | Uncheck Word Wrap)

Hello Matt,

Thank you very much for helping me. Here’s what I have done in each of the steps you outlined.
(1) “Disable Ad-Aware”
There is no Ad-Watch icon in the system tray. I use the Free version of Ad-Aware, which does not contain Ad-Watch. If I click on Ad-Watch in the Ad-Aware menu I get the message “Please perform a software upgrade to retrieve Ad-Watch 2008.” So, I uninstalled Ad-Aware instead.
(2) “Update Java and Adobe Reader”
Done. The JavaRa log is posted below. I have installed Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7 and Adobe Reader 9.0.0.
(3) “Uninstall Programs”
Done. I have uninstalled Freecorder and Freecorder Toolbar in Safe Mode.
(4) “HijackThis”
I have removed all of the entries that you requested, except for the one involving Virtuagirl2 because I wanted to check with you first. (I did remove the one involving Virtuagirl HD.) If I remove the Virtuagirl2 entry does it only prevent it from opening at startup and appearing in the system tray? I would still like to be able to run the program manually. I don’t allow the program to access the internet.
(5) “Run Scanner”
Done. I have attached the RScanner.run file and posted a fresh HijackThis log.

Matt,

I just ran Spybot - Search & Destroy and got this message concerning a registry change. I did not choose "Fix selected problems" after getting the message.

Thanks,

Hi Pat,

If I remove the Virtuagirl2 entry does it only prevent it from opening at startup and appearing in the system tray?

Checking it will only remove it from startup. You don't need to check it - I've included instructions below for restoring VirtuagirlHD if you'd like it to still run at startup. You can use the same instructions for Virtuagirl2 if you've removed that.

How's your computer running?

Posted Image 1) Restoring HJT Backups
  • Open HijackThis
  • Click on View the list of Backups
  • Place a check mark next to:
    • O4 - Startup: VirtuaGirl HD.LNK = C:\Program Files\vghd\vghd.exe
    • O4 - Startup: VirtuaGirl2.lnk = C:\Program Files\Vg\VirtuaGirl2.exe
  • Click Restore
  • Click Yes
  • Reboot your computer
Posted Image 2) RunScanner
  • Download the attached .Run File (this is your RunScanner file fixed by me)
  • Save it to your Desktop and then double click the RunScanner Icon. This will start RunScanner
  • There will be several entries in Red and in Blue
  • Click the button at the top labeled Fix Selected Items
  • Accept the warning(s) and repeat until they are all gone
  • Reboot your computer
Posted Image 3) OTMoveIt2

Please download OTMoveIt2 by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit2.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    [kill explorer]
    C:\Program Files\Freecorder
    purity
    EmptyTemp
    [start explorer]

  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to Move" window (under the light Yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • A log of files and folders moved will be created in the c:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder in the form of Date and Time (mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log). Please open this log in Notepad and post its contents in your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt2
If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.

Posted Image 4) Kaspersky Scan

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner
Kaspersky online scanner uses JAVA technology to perform the scan. If you do not have the latest JAVA version, please download the latest version from here.
  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • 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.
  • Please post this log in your next reply.
In Your Next Post:
  • The log from OTMoveIt
  • The log from Kaspersky
  • A fresh HijackThis log
Regards,
Matt

Hi Pat,

Regarding your question about Spybot Search and Destroy, the registry entry relates to Local Machine Zone Lockdown and the information bar that pops up in Internet Explorer. It should be safe to leave it alone.

Also, I've updated my instructions in my previous post ^.

Regards
Matt

Here's what I've done.

1) Restoring HJT Backups
I decided not to restore Virtuagirl HD for startup, and I removed “O4 - Startup: VirtuaGirl2.LNK = C:\Program Files\Vg\Virtuagirl2.exe” now that you’ve explained that they will only be removed from startup. I also removed Metacafe from startup. Then I rebooted.

2) RunScanner
Done.

3) OTMoveIt2
Done, but some files “scheduled to be deleted on reboot” were not found after reboot. (See OTMoveIT log below.)

4) Kaspersky Scan
Done.

The Ad.yieldmanager.com problem still exists. The only instances I can recreate are in Yahoo applications. One difference now from when we started is that I only see it happening with Firefox. Before it happened whether I used Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. I have uploaded three screen prints as examples. (Example 3 should be named yahoo maps, not movies.)

Thanks again for all your help. It already has improved my situation.

Pat

Hi Pat,

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN! The ad.yieldmanager problem you're having isn't malware related. It's related to one of the toolbars you're using. Disable them one at a time and see if that fixes it. If it doesn't, the Windows XP Forum should be able to help you out.

Just a couple of last things to do.

Posted Image1) Enable Ad-AwareYou can now enable Ad-aware.
Posted Image 2) Uninstall The Tools We Used
  • Make sure you have an Internet Connection.
  • Double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit2.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Click on the CleanUp! button
  • A list of tool components used in the cleanup of malware will be downloaded.
  • Please allow OTMoveIt to access the internet if your firewall or other real time protection attempts to block it.
  • Click Yes to begin the Cleanup process and remove these components, including this application.
  • You might be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
Posted Image 3) Flush Your Restore Points
  • Go to Start then right-click on My Computer then click on Properties > System Restore at the top.
  • Click Turn Off System Restore On All Drives then click Apply then OK.
  • Reboot your system then go to Start then right-click on My Computer then click on Properties > System Restore at the top.
  • Click Turn On System Restore On All Drives then click Apply then OK.
Posted Image 4) Preventing Re-infection

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • ATF Cleaner - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

Good luck, safe surfing and have a great day :)

Regards,
Matt

Matt,

I'm sorry, but I don't understand. I realize that ad.yieldmanager.com doesn't show up on any of the scans as an infection but it certainly acts like one. Geeks to Go posted this article a couple of weeks ago.

http://www.geekstogo.com/2008/07/19/adyieldmanagercom-results-when-trying-to-check-yahoo-mail/

At first, I was continuously getting the popups redirecting me whenever I tryed to check my Yahoo mail. Then I followed the Geek to Go article's advice after doing a HijackThis scan and removed "O2 - BHO: Browser Address Error Redirector - {CA6319C0-31B7-401E-A518-A07C3DB8F777} - c:\windows\system32\BAE.dll". That solved the pop-up problem but still left me with the problem you have been working on.

Could you tell me how my present problem is related to a toolbar? Are these the toolbars in Internet Explorer? Could you please give me a little more detail as to what I need to do?

Thanks for you patience with me. I'm a novice at this.

Pat

Hi Pat,

One of the toolbars you have installed is the source of this problem. As it's only happening in Firefox now, I would guess it is a toolbar/add-on in Firefox. In Firefox, click on Tools then Add-Ons. Disable them all by clicking on each one and clicking disable. Restart Firefox and return to the Yahoo site you're having the issue on - it should be fixed. Enable each add-on one by one until you find the one that's causing the problem.

Regards,
Matt.

Thanks Matt. I'll try your suggestion. I'm still skeptical because I don't understand how a toolbar causes an ad.yieldmanager.com redirection problem. Every discussion involving tech experts that I've read treats these problems as a malware-related infections, appropriately posted in the Malware Removal forum.

I've discovered that I still have the ad.yieldmanager.com problem in IE7 as well as Firefox. I'll start by uninstalling toolbars that are independent of the browsers and go from there.
