Howdy,

First off a brief summary of events:

(I usually use Mozilla's Firefox to browse, and ever since two days ago when I did use Internet Explorer to enter a chatroom, Aurora Pop-ups have been showing along with other pop-ups. All pop-ups have been opening via Internet Explorer. Whether I used FireFox, it did not matter, the Internet Explorer pop-ups continued. I was able to stop the Aurora pop-up using the Aurora Uninstaller at www.mypctuneup.com; however, all other spyware/adware/malware pop-ups continued. I proceeded to download and use Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta 1 from the Windows website. It detected and removed some files, but the pop-ups continued. Luckily, I bumped onto Geeks To Go website.)


I perform all the steps instructed on this website regarding Malware Removal:

1) Clean Up!
2) Ad-aware SE
3) CWShredder
4) Spybot Search and Destroy
5) AVG
6) Ewido
7) Windows SP1a update (didn't use SP2 as I knew I had Aurora on the computer)

Steps 1 - 6 were done without having the internet hooked (some IT fella told me to run those without the internet hooked up, as the files removed by them can easily re-copy themselves onto my computer if the internet is hooked up).

Step 7 was done with the internet hooked up. Apparently, as SP1a is installing it gathers information from the Windows website as it's doing it.

All pop-ups have seemed to cease; however, I still ran a HiJackThis scan because upon restart/reboot of my computer the following windows show up:

RUNDLL (this is in the title bar)
Error loading D0CE0C16B1
The specific module could not be found
(At this point I click on "OK" and the window goes away.)

Then this window shows up:

Runner Error (this is in the title bar)
Invalid BackWeb application id "137903"
(At this point I click on "OK" and the window goes away.)

Also, Microsoft AntiSpware seems to ALWAYS detect the following upon restart/reboot:

Warning, AFA Internet Enhancement Browser Media is trying to install! (it's trying to install a Start Up registry on my computer. I proceed to select REMOVE, and Microsoft AntiSpyware confirms its removal; however, after restarting/rebooting about 3 times, the warning continues to appear every time and I remove it every time).

So now I ran HiJackThis, and the following is the log (THANK YOU!):

Welcom Che to Geeks to Go!

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

We need to disable Microsoft's Antispyware and Spybot S&D for the duration of the advise. It wil get in the way of us cleaning up.


Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Click on Options, Settings.
In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
Under Startup Options uncheck: Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck: Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.

***

To disable SpybotSD TeaTimer:

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.
Let the system reboot back to safe mode.

Howdy,

Thank you for responding to my inquiry. Below you'll find the logs requested after having performed what you instructed. I will let you know a couple of things that did not occur when I followed through with your instructions:

1) I was unable to disable TeaTimer on Spybot SD, as there was no TeaTimer box.

2) I did not find any 04- HKLM\..\Run: [WeirdOnTheWeb] . . . . . during the HiJackThis Scan (in safe mode). I figured that when I initially ran HiJackThis as you instructed (not in safe mode, I deleted WeirdOnTheWeb; therefore, the 04- HKLM\..\Run: [WeirdOnTheWeb] did not show up. BTW, Windows AFA Internet Enhancement did not show up at all when I did the first HiJackThis scan. I do recall that the specific Aurora window pop no longer was an issue after I ran the Aurora UnInstaller available on www.mypctuneup.com

O.K., here are the Ewido and HiJackThis log files you requested:

Nearly there.

Again disable Antispyware and Spybot SD Helper.

Open HijackThis
Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [C:\WINDOWS\VCMnet11.exe] C:\WINDOWS\VCMnet11.exe

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running.
Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Reboot and post back a log made in HijackThis.

Since you did not state whether to run the most recent instruction(s) in safe or normal mode, I went ahead and did it in normal mode.

Also, I was unable to disable SpyBot SD Helper. The software I downloaded from a link provided by this website was SpyBot Search & Destroy (I also searched and downloaded the updates). I could not download the DSO Exploit Fix which was also instructed by this website. So, there is no TeaTimer box to uncheck or a SpyBot SD Helper to disable. :tazz:

I disabled Microsoft Antispyware, ran HiJackThis Scan and removed the file you suggested. Here's the log file you requested:

Are you using Spybot Search & Destroy version 1.3 or 1.4?
In version 1.4 the DSO exploit bug is no longer an issue.

Your log looks clean. How are thing over there?

I believe the Download from www.geekstogo.com is SpyBot S&D 1.4

I have had no pop ups; however, I am using Mozilla's FireFox. I am somewhat hesistant to open Internet Explorer. As a matter of fact, since last week I've placed Internet Explorer's settings: "High" for security and "NO" for cookies. Should I feel free to lower those security and privacy settings?

How bout Microsoft Antispyware? Should I go ahead and enable it now?

Thanks,


Che

You can enable Antispyware again.

I copied this piece of advise from Metallica:

Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK. Now press "Custom Level." In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls") to "prompt", and "Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to "disable". Now you will be asked whether you want ActiveX objects to be executed and whether you want software to be installed. Sites that you know for sure are above suspicion can be moved to the Trusted Zone in Internet Option/security. So why is ActiveX so dangerous that you have to increase the security for it? When your browser runs an ActiveX control, it is running an executable program. It's no different from doubleclicking an exe file on your hard drive. Would you run just any random file downloaded off a web site without knowing what it is and what it does?


You can keep using FireFox if you like. Use Internet Explorer if you update Microsoft products.


Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware, Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
