Hi,
I have all sorts of the same pop-ups that have been discussed in other topics, but cannot get rid of mine. Searchem.net, yellow triangle with pop-ups in my taskbar, "popuper.exe"... the list goes on... I have followed several instructions on how to rid mine by using other people's topics since the symptoms are the same, I even thought I had them all gone, but I am still getting them.

I would appreciate any help!

Here is my latest HijackThis log:

Hi No1luser,

Welcome to Geeks 2 Go. Sorry about the delay in getting to your post, we have been very busy.

Do you still require help or are your problems resolved.

Please let me know and if you still require assistance, please post a fresh HJT log.

Regards,

Hi,

Yes, thank you... I believe I am still not out of the woods yet...

As you will see, many things have been eliminated, based on following other posts and the Ewido Security Suite's good job of finding the stuff that all the other security software missed.

However, I am no expert... I don't know if there is more SpyWare/MalWare/AdWare... hidden in my system...

I have two logins in Safe Mode: Administrator and default... and I don't know if that makes a difference for finding things.

Also, my settings are all screwed up... I went into regedit and fixed my background settings, but other things are messed (like my menu bar at the bottom looks like Win98 instead of XP)... can you help?

I am at work right now, but will post a fresh HijackThis lag at lunch... any other logs from other programs? Let me know...

Thank you very much!!!

Hi No1luser,

Here we go. let's get cooking.

Resscan with HJT, check the following.

O3 - Toolbar: Adobe PDF - {47833539-D0C5-4125-9FA8-0819E2EAAC93} - C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Acrobat\AcroIEFavClient.dll (file missing)

Ensure no windows open except HJT and click FIX CHECKED.

Rescan with HJT and post the log back.

To sort out your classic view problem, try the following.



Click "Start > Run" and type in "cmd"

The Command Line editor will appear. Please type in:

mkdir C:\Luna

Please download the file
Luna

and save it to the c:\Luna directory

Expand the file and launch it

In the command line editor, please type:

expand c:\Luna\luna.ms_ c:\windows\resources\themes\luna\luna.msstyles

Note: There are two spaces in the command:

1. between expand and c:\
2. between luna.ms_ and c:\

Finally, click "My Computer > C: > Windows > Resources > Themes > Luna" and double click on the luna.msstyles file.

Click "Apply" and then "OK"

Then Right-click on your desktop and select "Properties"
Your Display Properties menu should appear, select "Themes"
Change you Theme to "Windows XP"
Click "Apply" and then "OK"
Reboot the computer.


Let know how you go on.

Hi No1Luser,

From your HJT log you only have 1 more entry to fix.

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://store.presari...&c=1c02&lc=0409

Above, although not malicious brings up a 404 error from HP.

Rescan with HJT, check above entry, ensure no other windows open other than HJT and Click FIX CHECKED.

Rescan with HJT and post log back

Hi,
Here's the new HJT log... I tried several times to remove that one item... but to no avail.

I'm also getting a lot of "cannot find server errors" now... I run my laptop (this one we're working on through a wireless router with a desktop. Up to now, no problems with these types of errors...

Thank you for your time!!!!

Is the "cannot find server errors" intermitant?

Is it any particular sites (ie home page) or every site?

Hi,

Yes, the problem seems to be intermitant... but most sites seem to be slow loading up or else the server is unavailable.

I performed the following "tweaks" along with your instructions before noticing this problem:

1. Turned off Windows Messenger: "RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\INF\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove"

2. Turned off indexing to speed up response time.

3. Turned off hibernation.

Is my cumputer clean? Or is this internet problem a result of more mal-ware?
Thanks again for yout time!!!

Hi Again,


From your explanation and looking at the last HJT log you posted, i am confident that this is not a malware issue.

Here is a link that may offer some insight into it.

Link re: connection

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. ;)

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.

Hello!

Thank you very much!!! I will look into the connection issues... I'm sure I can get my laptop running smoothly again... I used it last night for a while and it was actually pretty good.

I will also follow all of the advice you posted links to. Thanks!

This was definately a learning experience! My main pc is pretty well protected, and I thought my laptop would be "ok for now" until I could get to it... amazing how fast and how little it takes to become infected with that kind of crap. And why do people bother creating it anyway?

Thank you again for your help and time! I really appreciate it!!! Cheers!
