Open task manager (control>>alt>>delete) and stop this process.

wintask.exe

Run hijack this and put check marks next to these:


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [exp.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\exp.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinTask driver] C:\WINDOWS\System32\wintask.exe

O23 - Service: CWShredder Service - Unknown owner - \\daum_la\install\CWShredder.exe (file missing)


Reboot into safe mode and find these files and delete them.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\exp.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wintask.exe


Scan the computer here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/
Let it do a full run, than copy the log. Past it to a blank Notepad file and save it to post here.
Than let it rerun. Save that log too.

Please download CleanUp! - Download - HomePage
Install and run. Click on the button labeled CleanUp!.

When it finishes it will prompt you to restart Windows - there will be one or two files it cannot delete when Windows is running - however, they will be deleted next time Windows starts up.


Post back here with a fresh log using HijackThis and both of the scan results. :tazz:

I did as directed in running HJT and fixing those entries and deleting the files specified.

(Didn't find the C:\windows\system32\exp.exe file to delete however.)

Expected an online scan at www.ewido.net from your description, but appears to be a download. Downloaded and installed and scanned C:\.

Progressing now.. will report further. However, let me know if I missed something about the online scan if I interpretted your comments incorrectly.

Well...I'm not sure how to answer that. This is a system of an associate, so I'm not the one that get's to check it out. If it was my system, I doubt it would ever had gotten this much cr*p on it anyway. I've never had a spyware problem, but somehow others tend to get them...

It seems like from the HJT logs and other indicators that it is possibly cleaned. But, it was so bad before and the popups have raised their ugly heads so many times, I'm cautious to pronounce it "clean".

I'll let him use it for a day or so starting Monday, then run HJT and post the logs and we can see if it remains clean. Does that sound like a good plan?

What do you think it had on it?

You need to update it to sp2 and Microsoft just released 10 patches last week. Play with it for a couple of days. Make sure your virus scan is up to date. Also, download spyware blaster.

We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

System seems to be cleaned. The user doesn't experience popups anymore. The only damage seems to be that WINDOWS UPDATE (website) won't work, but automatic updates do. Haven't delved into this much yet, however.

What's this daumcommercial? I don't ever put anything in my trusted zone, but that's me.
The log looks fine otherwise, and you're not having any troubles besides the windows updates page? But you can download them, right?

daumcommercial.com is our corporate domain.

The updates work through the WINXP automatic updates, but not from TOOLS | WINDOWS UPDATE from IE.

Maybe this will help. Kind of like changing the oil every 3,000 miles. :tazz: Just a shot in the dark.

Download and install EasyCleaner:
http://personal.inet...rts/ecleane.htm

After installing it check under Settings > Registry tab if the backup
option is checked and if the directory it points to exists.
This should be true by default, but check anyway.

Then click OK and click Registry
Then click Search. When it is done select all the items per color,
(most, if not all should be green) and click Remove.

Reboot when you are done and let us know how it goes.
