Hey everyone (first post) :tazz: - great site you guys have here, lots of experts to share their knowledge - anyway.. i've been bombarded by spyware in the past few days, some i've gotten rid of with Ad-Aware, some with McAfee... but the big beast of them all has been the elusive Aurora program... what is the deal with this bit of spyware? i ran my McAfee virus scan last night and it came up with nail.exe and deleted it (hopefully i can kiss Aurora goodbye now, without having to do the whole Safe Mode process)... i also switched over to using Firefox (instead of the good ol' Internet Explorer) last night after having soooo much trouble with all this spyware crap.. i also renewed my McAfee Firewall.. i believe it was $40 on the site, but worth every penny... within the first 2 minutes of booting up with McAfee Firewall on, it already caught something trying to get in (or out)... i'm feeling pretty good now, dumped all my cookies, files (offline content too), and history in Internet Explorer and set the security level from medium (which is what i always had it on) to Block All Cookies (the highest)... I've got McAfee VirusScan and Firewall, so they usually pick up on trojans and other bad programs... and i'm using my new favorite browser.. Firefox! Funny thing came up last night while i was trying to get rid of Aurora... i did a search on google and it lead to someone's blog entry about how this thing is so hard to get rid of, but they led me to a site that had an unistaller for it (the aurora program i believe).. so of course i downloaded it and tried to use the unistaller but it would freeze up in the middle... so i don't think i could ever get it to fully function - has anyone heard of this thing, and does it even work? also - do you think McAfee got rid of Aurora, or should i continue to look for methods to get rid of it... and finally - does anyone know why there has been such a huge number of people that suddenly got this Aurora thing?

thanks!
peace

Hello and welcome to GeeksToGo! Aurora can be difficult to remove, but our Experts have developed a tool and method that works every time, very quickly. Sadly, I can guarantee you did not fully remove the infection with Norton. Also, the so called "removal tool" also will not fully clean you out. Heck, why would you want to trust a "removal tool" from the company who infected you without your permission?!?!

If you would please go here and follow Step 5: Posting a HijackThis log . Then make a reply to this thread using the "Add Reply" button with a copy of your HJT log. I will be happy to analyze it and help you remove Aurora once and for all! :tazz:

You should either print these instructions, or save them to a Notepad file on your desktop. Part of the fix may require you to be in Safe Mode, and you will be unable to access the internet at that time!

1. First I need you to download a couple of programs for use later in the fix:
  • Please download CleanUp!
  • Please download "Del Domain" from here
  • Please download Nailfix from here
    Unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.
  • Please download the Killbox.
    Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.
2. Reboot into Safe Mode by continually tapping the F8 key as the computer begins to start up. You will be taken to a screen that will allow you to choose to enter Safe Mode.

3. 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.

4. Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.
O2 - BHO: WinStat - {F007E221-018D-4baf-924A-B0E9092F3853} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\WinStat11.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [fbmd] C:\WINDOWS\System32\fbmd.exe

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.neededware.com

O16 - DPF: NDWCab - http://www.neededware.com/ndw2.cab
O16 - DPF: ppctlcab - http://ppupdates.ca....er/ppctlcab.cab
O16 - DPF: {2FC9A21E-2069-4E47-8235-36318989DB13} (PPSDKActiveXScanner.MainScreen) - http://ppupdates.ca....r/axscanner.cab
O16 - DPF: {E7DBFB6C-113A-47CF-B278-F5C6AF4DE1BD} - http://download.abac...abasetup141.cab
O16 - DPF: {F54C1137-5E34-4B95-95A5-BA56D4D8D743} (Secure Delivery) - http://www.gamespot....ownload/kdx.cab

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.

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

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

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

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint


5. Please double click to open Killbox.
Select "Delete on Reboot".
Open the text file with these instructions in it, and copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\fbmd.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\WinStat11.dll


Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

6. After you Reboot normally into windows, please locate the DelDomains on your desktop. Extract the .inf file from the .zip file you just downloaded. Now right click "Deldomains.inf" and click "Install". It will not appear to have done anything, thats ok.

7. Locate the CleanUp program you downloaded earlier. Double click it to run, Click the CleanUp button, and let it scan and select any files it needs to remove. Once it is done, exit the program.

8. Please make a reply here after you have done the above steps, and post a fresh HijackThis log, and let me know how things are running now! :tazz:

first of all - thank you for all your help! it was so nice having an exact guide going into the mysterious realm of Safe Mode - i did have 2 questions though... one item in HiJackThis was not there while in Safe Mode - it was this one i believe...

O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe (file missing)

i continued on with the rest of the steps though... when i rebooted in normal mode - i did the CleanUp! scan and after it finished it asked if i wanted to restart do delete the one or two files that could be deleted upon restart.. should i restart first and then send the new HiJackThis log?

anyway.. here is my current HiJackThis log - hopefully squeaky clean!!

The svcproc.exe 023 line coudln't be found in HJT because it was removed using the Nailfix.exe. :tazz: I always include that line with the HJT fixes just in case!

Your HJT log IS clean now. How is everything running? Please do go ahead and reboot, so CleanUp can remove what it needs to.

wow! thank you so much ~kat~!!!! it feels so good to have that bug off my computer - a few closing questions - i have a Party Poker link on my desktop (placed there probably by the Aurora thing) should i just move it right over to the recycling bin? also - about all these programs i have on my computer now (nailfix, hijackthis, deldomains, killbox) - is it okay to unistall them? if it is, could you just drop me a line on how to uninstall them safely?

thanks again! it is so nice to be in a community with so many helpful people!!

peace :tazz:

PS - one more thing, is it safe to use Internet Explorer now? or should i just stick to Firefox (which i love now!) - if it is safe to go on IE, what security level should i have it set on?

thanks!

You're quite welcome! You can go ahead and uninstall/delete everything we downloaded now. I recommend keeping CleanUp though. I run mine about once a week! :tazz:
You *can* use IE, but honestly FF is better. It is MUCH less of a security thread. The only time I personally use IE is to download my Windows updates.
Yes, you can delete the Party Poker icon, as well. Be sure to empty the recycle bin right away!

Congratulations! Your log is now 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.
