Hi, I've been through all the steps in your Malware directions. Below is my Highjackthis file.

Symantec Antivirus detected and quarantined desktop.html and told me the file was associated with download.trojan. Since this happened, my desktop wallpapaer has been an off-white blank and I have no right-click functions (like ceate a new folder, etc., which is really annoying not to have). As far as I can tell, this is the only thing wrong; all the desktop icons are there and functional.

I deleted the desktop.html and gotten rid of everything the various cleaning programs have told me to do away with.

Thanks very much in advance for any help! This frowny is directed at the subhuman particles that create and distribute malware :tazz:

Hello morrerp and welcome to Geeks to Go.

Before we get underway, you may wish to print these instructions for easy reference during the fix, although please be aware that many of the required URLs are hyperlinks in the red names shown on your screen. Part of the fix will require you to be in Safe Mode, which may not allow you to access the Internet, or my instructions!

In your reply, could you please tell me if you have a Lexar jump drive or a flash card for a digital camera? Now if you are ready, let’s get fixing!

I just want to check a couple of points with you. Please ensure you have administrator rights on this PC (User Accounts in the Control Panel will confirm this), and that this is a single identity PC, if not please inform me in your next reply.

You are running HijackThis from Desktop; please create a new folder for it (for example C:\Program Files\Hijackthis\Hijackthis.exe) and move the programme into it. It is very important you do this before anything else!

The first job is to disable SpySweeper from running in real time; it may hinder our attempts to fix some problems. Please disable the programme from operating until after the fix.

To start please download the following programmes, we will run them later. Please save them to a place that you will remember, I suggest the Desktop:

CCleaner
Ewido Security Suite

Install Ewido Security Suite (it is a 14-day trial version of the programme).
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • The programme will prompt you to update click the OK button
  • The programme will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Make sure the following boxes are checked before scanning:
    • Binder
    • Crypter
    • Archives
  • Click on Start Scan
  • Let the programme scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK

Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report
  • Save the report to your desktop and include it in your reply.
Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com
O2 - BHO: (no name) - SOFTWARE - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {169328C6-2B46-4D8F-999D-E81FE4BA6D23} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\fepj.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: C:\windows\temp\B.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [fSXm7] C:\Documents and Settings\Randallicious\Local Settings\Temp\fSXm7.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xgA] C:\Documents and Settings\Randallicious\Local Settings\Temp\xgA.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [0Rz28Z] C:\documents and settings\randallicious\local settings\temp\0Rz28Z.exe
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Please now reboot into safe mode. Here's how:

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

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Please delete these files (if present) using Windows Explorer:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\fepj.dll
C:\windows\temp\B.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Randallicious\Local Settings\Temp\fSXm7.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Randallicious\Local Settings\Temp\xgA.exe
C:\documents and settings\randallicious\local settings\temp\0Rz28Z.exe

Close Windows Explorer and Reboot normally.

Now we must hide the files we revealed earlier by reversing the process, this is an important safeguard to stop important system files being deleted by accident.

There is almost certainly bound to be some junk (leftover bits and pieces) on your system that is doing nothing but taking up space. I would recommend that you run CCleaner. Install it, update it, check the default setting in the left-hand pane, Analyze, Run Cleaner. You may be fairly surprised by how much it finds.

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and also an Uninstall Log:

Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click Save List (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click [b]Save
, copy and paste the results in your next post.

and I will take another look.

Hi Phil, thanks very much for the help! This whole geeks to go thing is a marvellous global community idea. :tazz:

cheers,
randall



"In your reply, could you please tell me if you have a Lexar jump drive or a flash card for a digital camera? Now if you are ready, let’s get fixing!"

I have both a Lexar jump drive and an Hitachi 1GB microdrive for my digital camera.

"I just want to check a couple of points with you. Please ensure you have administrator rights on this PC (User Accounts in the Control Panel will confirm this), and that this is a single identity PC, if not please inform me in your next reply."

I do have admin. rights and it's a single ID laptop PC (I think; I do connect to a network at work).

I followed all of your other instructions carefully. The files that I was to remove while in safe mode (if present) weren't present. Highjackthis is great, by the way; it found and removed two files that spysweeper kept detecting but couldn't remove. When I tried to remove them manually, I found that they weren't in the folders that spysweeper told me they were in- some malware hanky-panky, I think, but highjack this found 'em.

Here is the ewido log:

Hello again Randall

Congratulations! your new log is clean. :tazz: Just a little bit more to do to prevent further infection. Remember to enable Spysweeper.

I recommend going to the following link and update as recommended by Microsoft. This adds more security and extra features including a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer. Microsoft Update

Now that everything is fixed, I suggest that you consider getting these programmes to help keep the computer clean:

SPYWARE BLASTER - Blocks bad ActiveX items from installing on your computer.
AD-AWARE PERSONAL – A fine free malware detector and removal programme
SPYBOT S&D – Excellent free spyware detector and removal programme
GOOGLE TOOLBAR - Blocks many unwanted pop-ups in Internet Explorer.
FIREFOX - Safer alternative to the Internet Explorer web browser.
AVG ANTIVIRUS - Free antivirus programme if you currently are not using one.
ZONEALARM - Free firewall programme if you currently are not using one.

Remember to update these frequently.

Please note that whilst there is nothing wrong in having more than one spyware detector/prevention programmes for “on demand” scanning, having two or more antivirus systems is not recommended as they may well interfere with each other.

You may also want to read "How did I get infected in the first place" to learn how to better secure your computer.

Be sure to keep Windows and your Anti-Virus updated. ;)

Thanks, Phil, I feel better knowing most of that crap is gone from my system. :tazz:

I still don't have wallpaper or right-click capabilities on my desktop- any other ideas?

Hello Randy

Try this:

Download the following file and unzip it to your desktop. Then doubleclick it and grant permission to merge the registry entries.

Wallpaper

********************************************************************************

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer]
"NoViewContextMenu"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoViewContextMenu"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSetTaskbar"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

********************************************************************************

Please save the content of the box above to an empty file in Notepad.
Save it as rightclick.reg
to your desktop
type: all files
Close Notepad.
Doubleclick the file rightclick.reg and grant permission to merge the registry entries.

Let me know how its going

Hi Phil,
Followed the directions to no avail.

Is the following helpful? When I right click the desktop screen, I get the same pulldown menu that comes up when I right click a web page in explorer. When I select 'properties,' it gives me the following info (under the general tab):

***********************************************************
Not available

Protocol: File Protocol

Type: Html Document

Connection: Not encrypted

Address: file://C:WINDOWS\Web\desktop.html (which is the original file quarantined by Symantec and which I deleted)

Size: Not Available

Created: Not Available

Modified: Not Available
***************************************************************

It seems to be treating my desktop as a web page???

thanks,
randall

Hello again Randall

Let's try this.

Backup Windows Registry by doing this:

Back Up Reg.

Download ERUNT and install it.

ERUNT

Run ERUNT, backup the entire registry (select all the modules System, Current User, etc) to a Folder (that can be specified while backing up).

Then go to Start>Run and type regedit and press ENTER

Then navigate to this key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

and right-click on the Wallpaper and click Delete

Then reboot and check the Desktop problem.

Hi Phil,

I should have checked first to see if wallpaper was in the folder! Backed up the registry, etc., and then found nothing called wallpaper in this folder:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

is that significant?

Hello again Randall

That should have worked - did it?

Have you rebooted?

Please tell me that you have checked the Customize Desktop settings in Display Settings>Properties?

What's happening now?

Can you right click?

From what I understand, the file://C:WINDOWS\Web\desktop.html is the one that causes the problem.

Hi Phil,

I did all of the stuff below:

"Back Up Reg.

Download ERUNT and install it.

ERUNT

Run ERUNT, backup the entire registry (select all the modules System, Current User, etc) to a Folder (that can be specified while backing up).

Then go to Start>Run and type regedit and press ENTER

Then navigate to this key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"


all the way to right here, but there was no wallpaper in the above folder to delete. The only thing in there is an "ab" file icon of file type "REG_SZ"


"and right-click on the Wallpaper and click Delete"

I rebooted just for the heck of it but nothing changed. Sorry this is such a pain, and thanks again for your help so far.

Hello again Randall

I was trying to get a definitive answer from you in the last post. This was the question: Please tell me that you have checked the Customize Desktop settings in Display Settings>Properties?

I need to know that before I go looking for more answers. Please humour me on this point.

If I'm not mistaken, it sounds like something has set the computer to show an Active Desktop.

The computer has been set to show a certain webpage as the Desktop and when you right click and select properties, you are showing the Properties of that webpage. So we need to delete that webpage. So go to C:\WINDOWS\Web\ and delete desktop.html, but I think you have already done this part.

Then go to the Control Panel and double click Display. Go to the Desktop tab and at the bottom click Customise Desktop. Then go to the Web tab. There should be a box with a list of Active Desktops. Remove the checkmark from next to all of them and delete each one except My Current Home Page which cannot be removed. Then reset your Desktop Wallpaper.

Did that do it?

Sorry Phil, wasn't ignoring your question on purpose, I'm just a bit absent-minded at times.

I had checked the display settings, but not really knowing what I was looking for, I didn't find the check box which solved the problem when I unchecked it 2 minutes ago! Apparently when something hijacks your desktop to display a webpage, either symantec or windows checks a "security" box in the "web" section of the customize desktop display. When that box is checked, the desktop displays a blank web page. I can hear your groan from here :tazz:

I had a feeling it would turn out to be something stupid that I just didn't know about, a common problem with me and computers (cars too). Thank you for all your help and sorry it was such a mundane problem.

cheers,
randall

Hello again Randall

I am going to miss our chats. Well as I always say, I can fix it, but I can't say when.

Glad I was able to offer you help (BTW I never groan) but it is very difficult to guage somebody's knowledge from a web forum.

Strangely, I discussed your case in open forum with other fellow Geeks, and one of them didn't know that active desktop was available as an option in Windows XP. I was saying, "this is beating me, I'm sure I have done this correctly and all should be well. Am I missing something here?" Then I decided to ask the question.

The rest is as you know.

Happy safe surfing! I'll leave the thread open for a few days just in case.
