Hello inkyspanky. Welcome to Geeks to Go! I am Kristy and I will be helping you. It may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

Please save HijackThis in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msmc] C:\WINDOWS\system32\msmc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Uninstall_TBPS] C:\WINDOWS\Temp\TBuninst.exe /remove
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [checkrun] C:\windows\system32\elitegrp32.exe
O16 - DPF: {15AD6789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - http://static.windup.../bridge-c18.cab
O16 - DPF: {BAB3E70B-A847-4A88-ACFC-778FCCC00287} (CActSetupObj Object) - http://www.odysseusm...om/actsetup.cab


Now click fix checked.

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following programs, if found:

WebSearch Toolbar
mscman
MyWebSearch


Exit Add/Remove Programs.

Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files/folders in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\system32\msmc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\TBuninst.exe /remove
C:\windows\system32\elitegrp32.exe


Empty your recycle bin, and reboot normally.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. :tazz:

Hello inkyspanky,

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Next please run HijackThis, click Scan, and check:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Uninstall_TBPS] C:\WINDOWS\Temp\TBuninst.exe /remove
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Uninstall_WinTools] C:\WINDOWS\Temp\WTuninst.exe /remove
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [checkrun] C:\windows\system32\elitegrp32.exe


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

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).

Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files/folders in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\TBuninst.exe /remove
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\WTuninst.exe /remove
C:\windows\system32\elitegrp32.exe


Empty your recycle bin, and reboot normally.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. :tazz:

No problem inkyspanky!

**You may now re-hide hidden files**


Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

First, you should update AVG to version 7.0. Look here for current updates.

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.
