Hi there,

I got spyware a few days ago. I have used CWShredder, Ad-Aware SE, Spybot. They seem to clear out a lot of bad stuff. But the remaining problem is that my computer is very slow to start up. Every time it starts up, it pauses at "Applying computer settings", and "Applying personal setitngs" for like 10 mins each! Could someone look at my log or tell me what might be the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hi elsia and Welcome to Geeks to Go!!!

Lets take care of the DNS Protocol Hijack First!!!(The 017s with the crap IP addy)

Download Ewido Security Suite, install then from within the program check for updates BUT dont scan yet
Ewido Security Suite:

When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu". When you run ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK.
We will fix this in a moment.

From the main Ewido screen, Click on Update in the left menu, then click the Start Update button.

After the Update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"), Now close the program.

If you have problems updating see here

If you run into any errors while running this,please let me know ASAP!!

Please Dwomload remv3.zip from


Please be sure remv3 is Unzipped into its own folder,otherwise it will not work!

Reboot into SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:

Locate remv3 and Double Click remv3.bat>>Wait for the DOS window to close!

It will create a log located at C:\log.txt,I will need to see that log in the next post!

Enter your control panel,select the Network and Internet Connections category otherwise double click on Network Connections.

Then right click on your default connection, usually local area connection for cable and dsl, and left click on properties.

Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS servers automatically

Make sure the radio dial has the Green Dot in it!!

Open HijackThis and put a check by these but DO NOT hit the Fix Checked button yet!

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{453C34F5-68C6-4175-B583-A3118951C000}: NameServer =,

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{A516C6CA-1835-41E7-BE2B-E6BDE2BDF084}: NameServer =

O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer =,

O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer =,

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer =,

Now Make sure ALL WINDOWS and BROWSERS are CLOSED and hit the Fix Checked Button!!

Click Start, and then click Search.
Click All files and folders.
In the "All or part of the file name" box, type:


Verify that "Look in" is set to "Local Hard Drives" or to (C:).
Click "More advanced options."
Check "Search system folders."
Check "Search subfolders."
Click Search.
Click Find Now or Search Now.

If you find rasphone.pbk file, right-click the file, and then click "Open With."
Deselect the "Always use this program to open this program" check box.
Scroll through the list of programs and double-click Notepad.
When the file opens, delete the entries below:

IpDnsAddress =
IpDns2Address =
IpNameAssign = 2

Close Notepad and be sure to Save your changes when prompted!!!

Now Click Start>>Run>>Type in CMD and Click OK!

At the Dos Prompt Screen,type in cd\ and hit enter!

Now type in ipconfig/flushdns and click enter>>Once it is done,close command prompt!

Now Scan the PC with Ewido,Allow it to clean all it finds and be sure to Save the log it generates!

Restart and Post a fresh HijackThis log along with the logs from Ewido and Remv3!
