Happy Birthday coachwife6! ;)

I installed ZoneAlarm. Many alerts pop up from 192.168.2.100 -- a benign website.

My internet connection will suddenly be lost and rebooting will reenable it. I tried resetting cable modem, router, enable/disable/repair internet connection...nothing would work except rebooting.

Cannot delete the following key related to Effective-i -- any hints?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatability\{44BE0690-5429-47F0-85BB-3FFD8020233E}

Thanks for your continued help-hope you had a good day! :tazz:

H-O: Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. :tazz:


1. Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
2. Update ewido or any other virus scanner you have been using..
3. Run a full system scan and delete all the files detected as Adware.UCMore.
4. Delete the value that was added to the registry.

For specific details on each of these steps, read the following instructions.

1. To disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP)
If you are running Windows Me or Windows XP, we recommend that you temporarily turn off System Restore. Windows Me/XP uses this feature, which is enabled by default, to restore the files on your computer in case they become damaged. If a virus, worm, or Trojan infects a computer, System Restore may back up the virus, worm, or Trojan on the computer.

Windows prevents outside programs, including antivirus programs, from modifying System Restore. Therefore, antivirus programs or tools cannot remove threats in the System Restore folder. As a result, System Restore has the potential of restoring an infected file on your computer, even after you have cleaned the infected files from all the other locations.

Also, a virus scan may detect a threat in the System Restore folder even though you have removed the threat.

For instructions on how to turn off System Restore, read your Windows documentation, or one of the following articles:

How to turn off system restore


Note: When you are completely finished with the removal procedure and are satisfied that the threat has been removed, re-enable System Restore by following the instructions in the aforementioned documents.

2. Update viral program and scan - delete anything picked up.

3. To delete the value from the registry
Important: We strongly recommend that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified subkeys only. Read the document, how to back up your registry" for instructions.

1. Click Start > Run.
2. Type regedit

Then click OK.
3. Navigate to the subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

In the right pane, delete the value:

"{44BE0690-5429-47f0-85BB-3FFD8020233E}" = "UCmore - The Search Accelerator"

4. Delete the following registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{44BE0690-5429-47F0-85BB-3FFD8020233E}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\UCmore - The Search Accelerator
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Effective-i
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Effective-i
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Maxthon

Run CleanUp! Post a new log and tell me how it's running. ;)

Hello CW6,
Here is my most recent HJT log. I think I finally got rid of Effective-i!

Do I need the following or can I delete them safely?:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = localhost:9095
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

Those entries aren't hurting anything and you will have to disable many of your spyware programs to get it done.

Is it running OK?

Hello,

I have finally gotten rid of a few bad registery entries by using scanners in safe mode and using CleanUp! and CCleaner before reboot.

I'm having problems removing the following reg entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\ActiveX compatability\{44BE0690-5429-47F0-85BB-3FFD8020233E} presumably related to Effective-i.

Each time I delete this key value, it reappears next time I open regedit, reganalyzer, or reglite. How do I terminate it for good?

The following have been returning occasionally:
CoolWebSearch (found by MS AntiSpyware)
Effective-i Inc (found by SpySubtract)
ClearSearch (found by SpyWare Killer)
unknown BHO (defined unclearly as "URL Search" BHO by MSAS)

Also, a new Administrator folder has been created named "Administrator.#####", (where ##### is my computer number). Could this folder be harboring the recurrent malware?

Thanks again! :tazz:

Kill Bit Setting

Administrators and users can set a kill bit flag in the registry to make Internet Explorer not load specific controls. In order to do so the control's CLASSID must be known. Then the following registry key must be located or created: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatability\{CLASSID}. Locate the Compatibility Flag key. By default, it can be several values. Setting it to 400 will instruct Internet Explorer not to load the control. This is a good way for administrators to prevent known controls from running if they've had a problem with them previously.


http://www.oreilly.c...apter/ch11.html

This is my advice:

1. Is the machine is running properly? If it's not, then we'll tackle the next problem.

OK. We'll tackle that problem. We need to get rid of the plethora of programs you have running. I am working now, but give me a couple of hours and I'll throw some ideas out there for you to consider.

Have you ever considered joining GeekU? There's a link in my signature. With your interest and zeal to fight malware, it might be right up your alley. :tazz:

I have gone through your log and given you some options of what I think you should do. If it's lethargic it may because you have a lot of stuff running on it that you don't need.

I told you what to remove and what to put checkmarks next to.

It's been a while, but you gave me lots of homework on that last post! ;) Thanks for your great input!

Yes, I have thought about GeekU but my current schedule would not allow proper attention to this matter. I'll keep studying until then!

I have taken your advice and removed what I could from your last recommendations. There are a few I am having trouble removing.

I am trying ZeroSpyware and it found "SpyAnytime PC Spy" a commercial keylogger! :tazz: I wonder how I have been compromised during this period!

Trend Micro Antivirus found "JS Fortnight.M" but, again, could not find suspicious files or reg keys.

BTW, my system is faster...thanks for the advice! ;)

Here is my current HJT log:

I'm sure you already found this info. out:

Virus Characteristics  "JS Fortnight.M"

This script virus resides on a web page, which was recently removed. Upon visiting this page previously, a user's email signature file was appended to include a link to malicious webpage. When an infected user manually sent out an email message, a link would appear at the bottom, pointing to a web page on this site.

Again, the malicious page was removed; therefore this virus is currently not a threat. However, users may see this detection in messages sent from infected users.


Symptoms

Sent email messages contain a link to http://link.rawtocas...cgi-bin/omitted.



Here's the info. to delete the keylogger (if it's there)

Hello again CW6!

My system has improved greatly with your prior recommendations. Web surfing seems to be back to normal and my internet connection is not being randomly disabled as before. Thanks for your continued help! :tazz:

XoftSpy found W32.Xabot.Worm is this a false positive? How do I delete?

Trend OnLine Spyware Scanner found “Effective- i” and deleted it. The next few scans find nothing, but then a few days later it returns again--very persistent.

I am considering a Windows XP repair rather than reformatting with a clean install. Any hints on how to do this safely? I cannot reinstall my video driver and an error dialog box appears. Currently my resolution is not good as I am using 32-bit color quality and a resolution of 800 X 600 pixels. Is this malware related?

Thanks!
