;) ;) :tazz:

I have Spybot S&D, Microsoft Beta, Adaware SE, Yahoo Antispyware, Norton ( but at this time my definitions have expired and I don't have $60! to renew ), and I have downloaded everything ( and I mean everything ) suggested in the Malware/Spyware intro here.

I have Nail.exe, Aurora, Seeve, and I'm sure a few others in my PC and cannot seem to get rid of them.

I have tried getting rid of the files in 'safe mode' and doing scan after scan to get rid of it and nothing works!

Can someone please PLEASE help me get rid of this??

TIA

Welcome to GTG.

Sure, we would be glad to help you out here :tazz:

OK, first you need to give us a HijackThis log. Don't worry about Norton. Uninstall it. We will suggest a free one for you to use. I highly recommend using Grisoft AVG as your antivirus.

After you post your HijackThis log, I will ask you to download and install another antivirus program. But I don't intend for you to keep that one. We just need it to see if it can remove aurora. So you may uninstall it when we are done and keep Grisoft AVG.

OK, post the HijackThis log when ready.

Yes, remove it completely (unless you want to keep it and pay for it yearly?). I highly recommend using the AVG, not only because it's free, but because it uses less resources and does a better job than Norton.

It should not mess things up at all. However, Norton might cause problems for some users. So try removing/uninstalling it in Safe Mode if anything. Install AVG afterwards.

OK, now to the aurora problem:

Download Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and install it. Update to the newest definitions. Do NOT run it yet.

Please download nailfix at http://users.pandora...chy/nailfix.zip (for Windows XP) or http://users.pandora...y/nailfix2k.zip (for Windows 2000) Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

Download KillBox http://www.greyknigh...spy/KillBox.exe. Don't run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.bat (or nailfix2k.bat if you have Windows 2000). Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Next run a full scan in Ewido. Post the log from the Ewido scan here.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,ShellNext = https://register.pas...033&langid=1033
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IPInSightMonitor 01] "C:\Program Files\SBC Yahoo!\Connection Manager\IP InSight\IPMon32.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [seeve] C:\WINDOWS\seeve.exe
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.media-motor.net
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.popuppers.com
O16 - DPF: {3F32166D-6F31-4F15-A6D3-120CF036C7EE} (ScreamCtrl Control) - http://64.34.34.67:8.../ScreamCtrl.cab
O16 - DPF: {3F32166D-6F31-4F15-A6D3-120CF036C7EF} - http://64.34.34.67:8.../ScreamCtrl.cab


Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Run KillBox and check the box that says 'End Explorer Shell While Killing File'. Next click on 'Delete on Reboot'. For each of the following files below, check the box that says 'Unregister .dll Before Deleting' if it's not grayed out. Copy and paste each of the following into KillBox (hitting the X button for each file - choose NO when it asks if you want to reboot):

C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
C:\WINDOWS\seeve.exe


Restart your computer in normal mode and post a new HijackThis log, as well as the log from the Ewido scan.

OK, I'll try the earlier method I used for others and see if that can help us out more.

**Note** DO NOT REBOOT the computer during the removal process. If you do the filenames will change. If you can't leave the computer on now, I suggest not running the logs below yet. Wait until you can leave it on.

Download FindIt's.zip to your desktop: http://forums.net-in...=post&id=142443

1. Unzip/extract the files inside to a folder on your desktop.
2. Open the folder. Double click on FindIt's.bat and wait for Notepad to open a text file. It will take a while so please be patient ...
3. Then post the results here along with the new HijackThis log.

Also, should I try more than once doing this if it doesn't work the first time?

Did you remove something? It looks like the other bad files are gone. We are left with only one now. So let's try this again:

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.bat (or nailfix2k.bat if you have Windows 2000). Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Next run a full scan in Ewido. Post the log from the Ewido scan here.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Restart your computer in normal mode and post a new HijackThis log, as well as the log from the Ewido scan.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Download KillBox http://www.atribune....ads/KillBox.exe
Download and install CleanUp http://cleanup.stevengould.org/

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also. Please make sure system restore is enabled by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and make sure that System Restore is enabled (box should be unchecked). Once you're clean we will turn this off and then create a new restore point.

Close out all open windows and disconnect the computer from any internet access.

1. SKIP

2. SKIP

3. Run the CleanUp program you just installed and when prompted to reboot/logoff select NO.

4. Run KillBox. Go to Tools > Delete Temp Files > Click *OK* Copy and paste the following locations into KillBox one at a time. Checkmark the box that says 'Delete on Reboot' and checkmark the box 'Unregister DLL' (If available) Click the red circle with the white X and it will ask you to confirm the file for deletion, say YES and when the next box opens prompting you to reboot now...click NO...and proceed with the next file. Once you get to the last one click NO when it asks you to reboot.

**Note** Don't let KillBox reboot the computer...Reboot manually after the fixes for the HijackThis (see below).

C:\Windows\svcproc.exe
C:\Windows\Nail.exe


5. Go to Start->Run and type in cmd and hit OK. Then type in each of the following (hit Enter key after each line):

cd windows
nail.exe /FullRemove
exit


6. Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe


7. Reboot the computer now. Reconnect your internet access and post a new HijackThis log.
