First of all, thanks for the excellent descriptions of all the possible ways to get rid of this bloody malware. However, even after a day of cleaning, it's still there.

Running: W2K, with all updates installed.

Hi Michelle and welcome to GTG.

Please print out the instructions here (or save it in Notepad) so that you can follow along more easily.

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://www.noidea.us...050515010747824 Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT 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.cmd. 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 Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://us.rd.yahoo.c.../search/ie.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://us.rd.yahoo.c...//www.yahoo.com
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://us.rd.yahoo.c.../search/ie.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://us.rd.yahoo.c...//www.yahoo.com
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sfzmze] c:\winnt\system32\sfzmze.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [umovmp] c:\winnt\system32\szrizip.exe
O4 - Startup: Launch Internet Explorer Browser.lnk = C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE
O4 - Startup: Uncle Joe.lnk = ?
O16 - DPF: {2F5B39C5-C6F5-447A-A946-48B382C53985} - http://www.pacimedia...ll/pcs_0002.exe
O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINNT\svcproc.exe (file missing)


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

Delete these if found:

c:\winnt\system32\sfzmze.exe
c:\winnt\system32\szrizip.exe


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

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.

Wasn't able to figure out how to make a log in Ewido while in safe mode ... so I did a screen print of the quarantied items ... perhaps you have a better solution, I'm all ears and eyes. It did not find any current problems.

Here's the HiJack this log after all others steps:

Hi Michelle, LOL no problem you may leave those alone. You're actually the first user who said IE is for your internet connection. I know about this and have saw a handful of users who state that IE is starting up on it's own and going to a aboutblank page. I guess you were one of the rare ones without this problem :tazz:

Boot into Safe Mode and delete this file:

C:\WINNT\System32\MSCLOC~1.DLL


I think the full name is msclock32.dll - so delete that file.

Other than that:

Your log is clean.

Make sure to get the latest updates for Windows and Internet Explorer at http://v5.windowsupd...t.aspx?ln=en-us.

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Are there any problems now? If not, you should be set to go.

Thanks for the assist. I'll boot that machine in safe mode in the morning ... it loads IE and links to another machine to pull up an internet-cafe-timer. Love the users who don't know any better than to click on ugly links while they're checking their email.

It's been fun, will hit PayPal tomorrow, as well. This service is worth a lot to me!

Well, aside from not being able to access the Windows Update page, good old Uncle Joe seems to be much better. If you have advise on that, or know who would be better to work with (GTG, Microsoft assistants, etc) let me know. I've already posted the problem to them.

Thanks again!
