Hi all,

I was infected with allsorts of trojans and viruses and followed the guide for removal. Ran AdAware, Norton Anti-Virus, and all the other ones in the step by step guide and I think I'm now clear.

But I want to install windows XP SP2 and daren't in case I've missed something.

Could someone please just take a look at my Hijack This log file and tell me if I'm free and clear so I can download SP2.

Thanks in advance. :tazz:

Hi nethie,

Just a couple of things to fix before you upgrade.

Rescan with HJT, check the following:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com


Ensure no windows open except HJT and click on fix checked.

Rescan with HJT and post new log in this thread.

Hi Nethie,

Well that brought the nasties out, we still have a bit of work to do before you are clean.

Please print out these instructions so that you have them when you need to reboot your pc

Download CWShredder here to its own folder.

Update CWShredder

* Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
* Click Check For Update
* Close CWShredder

Boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Now run CWShredder. Click I Agree, then Fix and then Next, let it fix everything it asks about.

Now carry out a free online virus scan from the following link

Trend housecall

Press Ctrl/Alt/DELETE and then processes and if any of the following are running end task.

msiz.exe
msgy.exe


Rescan your PC with HJT .

Place a check against each of the following. Some of them may have been removed in previous processes, this is normal so do not be alarmed if not found

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\xuwcx.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\xuwcx.dll/sp.html#28129

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\xuwcx.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\xuwcx.dll/sp.html#28129
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\xuwcx.dll/sp.html#28129
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msgy.exe] C:\WINDOWS\msgy.exe
O23 - Service: Network Security Service ( 11F#`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\msiz.exe


Ensure that you have no open windows apart from HJT. click on Fix Checked.

Set your PC to show hidden files (click link below if you do not know how)

Show hidden files

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, if found and delete them:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\xuwcx.dll/
C:\WINDOWS\msgy.exe

Hi nethie,

From your log, I see nothing in the ways of trojans, nor any evil entities attempting to possess your computer, except for Windows but it's too late for that one. :tazz:

Congratulations your log now appears to be clean. ;)

It looks like its ok for SP2 now.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera and SlimBrowsers are good as well.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and AntiSpyware Net's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.
