Greetings,

My wife's co-worker has given us a laptop. It had a history of virii trouble of some sort, apparently in its checkered youth.

My intent is to use it to communicate with my wife vie Teamspeak while she is overseas on a four-month business trip. It has been working very well for several months, right up until a week before my wife left with the "good" laptop. I'd heard rumors of trouble from the two kids in the house, but as soon as my wife flew out of the country my niece informed me that she'd "been having trouble lately with MySpace and the Internet on the Compaq!"

Trouble as in Ceres ad popups, a missing file on boot-up (ccw32.dll ) that was associated with something called "Carbon Copy", constant lockup, and POR re-boots. Sex ads with amazingly graphic animations, ads for "adware removal tools", the works.

Joy. I had no idea it was this bad out there. I've been spoiled by my somewhat careful care of the "good" laptop! I let this one slide...

Before posting, I have spent the past five days completing the first four steps listed at "GeeksToGo: Before you post a HijackThis log!" I hope that I've covered most of it.

(It took three days just to get the machine to reliably boot. Fun stuff! )

Someone had done a partial uninstall of McAfee AntiVirus at some point. I should clean that up the rest of the way, but my skills are about a five on a 1-to-10 scale, and I have to be careful not to cause more trouble than I'm trying to cure.

I did install AVG anti-virus. I've run the full scan today, and I've also run the following crapware removal tools:

PanicWare's PopUpScanner (PopUpStopper has always been on this machine)

Spybot S&D

SpywareBlaster

Ad-Aware SE Personal

HijackThis

The only step I could not complete was the installation and use of CWShredder. (Missing dll file: oleacc.dll ) That, and the missing ccw32.dll file...

I have resisted the temptation to jump in and start deleting things without good advice, so I apologize if this listing is extensive to the point of idiotic.

Thank you for any time you might have for this!

Hi. Welcome to GTG. :tazz: I went ahead and did a fix any way

You have avg and McAfee running. Please get rid of one. It's hurting you.

Please download CleanUp! - Download - HomePage

Don't run it yet.

You are running HijackThis from the Desktop; please create a new folder for it and move the program into the new folder

Please set your system to show
all hidden files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Press Control-Alt-Del to enter the Task Manager.

Click on the Processes tab and end the following processes:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XUJPIGL.EXE
Exit the Task Manager when finished.

Close all programs and all windows, leaving only HijackThis running. Please disconnect from the internet. Place a check narj against each of the following, making sure you get each one and not any others by mistake:

Thank you for your reply today! You cannot imagine how relieved I am!

I am currently unable to remove McAfee normally, and now if I attempt to run "Add/Remove Programs" or "Printers" I receive an error message that states the "rundll32.exe" is not found...

I will do any editing that you can recommend in regedit, or I can consult McAfee for the manual removal instructions. I think I'll stick with the free software until this machine is cleaned up again, then look into purchasing the latest McAfee software for this one, as we've had good luck so far on the wife's machine...

Everything you recommended has been done, although certain entries, such as "systb.dll", "rsyncmon.dll" and "wupdt.exe" were not found...

Here is the latest HijackThis log...

Cheers!

Hello,

I have been unable to use CWShredder since downloading it several days ago, and the latest download suffers the same fate.

I am missing the file "oleacc.dll" so the program will not run.

I am also now missing "rundll32.exe" and do not know which of the many, many .cab files in the folder Win98 might contain this file. The folders are all compressed, but if you have ay advice on where to go to look for either of these files, I'd appreciate it.

I would ask my wife to e-mail me the files, but at this time she's probably at work in Hong Kong and will not be available to send me any files until she gets home, at about 3 AM my local time (Southern California!)

I will ask a friend who is local to send me the files if he is home, He's running XP, but I can probably get both of those files from him.

Until I install oleacc.dll I will be unable to run CWShredder, so I'll hold off on the other steps until that time. Thank you for your time today!

I have to take the 6th grader out for dinner right now. She's been patiently waiting for me to fix the printer/scanner so that she can complete some of the artwork for her science proect, but it'll have to wait 'til tomorrow.

Heck, I can get the files from work tomorrow!

Wish me luck, and thanks again for the help!

Back soon...

Okay, I solved all of the missing .dll or .exe's by reinstalling Win98...

CWShredder was able to run, but found nothing...

Instituted each of your latest suggestions re: McAfee and all the rest...

I haven't had any popup ads in a bit, and the popusstopper seems to be less busy, so this is getting better!

Here's the latest:

Cheers!

I've "fixed" the last two you suggested...

It's running very, very well. Thank you very much for your help. THis has been a trying couple of weeks with my wife out of the country. Bad time to not have a reliable home computer!

I am using AVG for anti-virus, and I'll be running Ad-Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Spyware Blaster to combat future incursions. I will also run CWShredder and CleanUp40, as well as the online PandaScan app.

Can you recommend a decent, free firewall?

I'll be purchasing the McAfee products soon, but not until a couple more paydays are past...

Thank you again!

Please do not run cwshdredder on a machine unless prescribed so by a malware expert. Running CWShredder on a healthy machine can cause damage.

I've never heard of CleanUp40. Is that the CleanUp? I've asked you to run.

ZoneAlartm and Sygate have free products. I would continue to use AVG along with the other products if money is an issue. Now that you are aware of what can help and hurt your computer, I think you're in good hands.

It's looking good. :help: Glad we could help.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? 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.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. ;)
