Hi there wickedwes.

Please print out these instructions so that you can refer to them later as some of this fix is performed in safe mode where you will have no internet access.

Step 1

Please Open your copy of Ewido and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

Step 2

Please download Nailfix from here:

http://users.pandora...chy/nailfix.zip

Unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.

Step 3

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:

http://www.pchell.co.../safemode.shtml

Step 4

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on Nailfix.bat. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Step 5

Then, still in safe Mode, please run Ewido, and run a full scan, fixing anything it finds. Post the log from the scan here for me when you get to step 9 below.

Step 6

Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel(if present):

Ebates_MoeMoneyMaker

Please note any other programs that you dont recognize in that list in your next response

Step 7

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [satmat] C:\WINDOWS\satmat.exe
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {6685509E-B47B-4f47-8E16-9A5F3A62F683} - file://C:\Program Files\Ebates_MoeMoneyMaker\Sy350\Tp350\scri350a.htm (file missing) (HKCU)
O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe (file missing)

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click "Fix Checked".

Step 8

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

C:\Program Files\Ebates_MoeMoneyMaker

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

C:\WINDOWS\satmat.exe
C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe

After that, Reboot.

Step 9


Please rescan using HJT and post your new HJT and EWIDO logs here so we can see whether your system is now clean.


I hope that this has been of some help to you.

Thanks so much for the help UKBiker.....you rock!! I did as you asked. Some the files you asked to delete were not present so I hope that is ok. Also there were two things in my Add/Remove Programs that I don't remember being there although I wouldn't swear on it: WexTechAnswerWorks and also Windows installer 3.1(kb893803).

Here are my updated logs:

Hi there wickedwes,

Great job, your log is clean :tazz: . All that was found by Ewido was a cookie which is nothing to worry about. Regarding the two applications you mentioned, the installer 3.1 is a legitimate Windows update and should be kept. The Wextech application is a bit more problematical. I cannot find definative advice as to whether it is legit or not, but I will ask the question to those more experienced than I. I have not seen any logs where it is deleted tho, so dont worry unduly. It seems to be some sort of plain text search enhancer, so if you do not want it, Remove it through the Add/Remove programmes facility. It does apparantly uninstall well from there.

I suggest that you purge your system restore folder in case a backup restore point has at some time been created when your system was infected. This is done by clicking the following -

Start>Programmes>accessories>system tools>system restore. When you get there, first select the "create a new restore point" option, and when that is done, select the "delate other than last created" option.

Finally, Please use the following links to help keep your system clean.
Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

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.


Anti Trojan ewido security suite This is a trial version, fully functional for 14 days. After that, you only lose the real time protection, you still have the on demand scanner and update functions..
