Hi smos,

Here we go with your fix

Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

Firstly please create a new folder on your C drive (for example C\HJT). Install HJT into that folder and run it from there. That way it can create backups if required

You MAY have a LOP infection that often comes together with Messenger Plus. If when you installed Messenger Plus, you did not ensure you installed WITHOUT the sponser program, please uninstall messenger plus in ADD/REMOVE in Control Panel, You can the reinstall after we have fixed your PC and when you do you opt out of the sponser program. Your messenger plus will be just the same without the malware.

Download a free 14 day trial of ewido from the link below. Install it and start it up. Follow the prompts to upgrade it, then close it down.

ewido

Please download Cleanup from here:
Cleanup. Do not run it yet.

Set PC to show hidden files (click link if you do not know how)LINK

Carry out a free online virus scan from the following link. Type in name, for company type anything you like, add email address in relevant boxes.

Kaspersky

Boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Then please run Ewido, and run a full scan. This may take some time, so go grab a coffee. Once it finds the first issue tick the box for all. Post the log from the scan here for me.

Now scan with HJT and check the following entries if they are there. Some may have been removed by earlier procedures.

Ensure no windows open except HJT and click fix checked

Using windows explorer locate and delete the following files:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\pjqgazc.dll
C:\DOCUME~1\SMOS\APPLIC~1\SENDAM~1\TrustGpl.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\bits mapi 2 mode\deadelse.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\KINDEXTRACREATIVEWMA\PlatformGpl.exe


Then run cleanup to clear out junk and temp files.

Now do the following:

Launch Notepad, and copy the text in RED below into a new text file, save as
File name: Findfile.bat
Save as type: All files
Save it to your desktop


dir C:\WINDOWS\System32\?hkntfs.exe /a h > files.txt
notepad files.txt


Locate FindFile.bat on your Desktop and double-click on it. It will open Notepad with some text in it. Please post the text in your reply


Rebbot into normal mode, rescan with HJT and post the logs back

From your log, I see nothing in the ways of trojans, nor any evil entities attempting to possess your computer, except for Windows but it's too late for that one. :tazz:

Congratulations your log now appears to be 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.
