I have the blue screen with the message “A fatal error in IE kas occured error caused by trojan-spy.html.smitfraud.c"

Based on advice in other threads I have run HijackThis. I didn' t check nor fix anything to fix because I don't recognize some of it.

I then ran activescan from pandasoftware. It found 30 infections and repaired 10, but then at end said it had deleted all.

I have attached logs from HJT and activescan.

thanks for any help; what to do next.

Welcome kozmob to Geeks to Go!

Please read these instructions carefully. You may want to print them. Copy the text to a Notepad file and save it to your desktop! We will need the file later.

casino.ico
date.ico
games.ico
mobile.ico
network.ico
pharm.ico
pharm2.ico
scanner.ico
spam.ico
spyware.ico


***

Download CleanUp!.
If that doesn’t work, use this link.

Go to options
Select ‘custom’
Put a check to:* empty recycle bins
* delete prefetch files
* CleanUp! All users.
Press 'cleanup!'

Once it's done, log off and log on again. This will remove files that were in use during the scan.

***

Please do an online scan, 2 would be better,

Trend Micro Housecall
Panda online scan

Make sure that you choose "fix" or "clean".

Save the results from the scan!

***

Post back here in this topic using the button ‘add reply’:

Thanks. I followed the instructions but something is not cleal.

Your instructions included the following:

"While your computer is restarting, tap the F8 key continually until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

***

Using Windows Explorer, delete the following (please do NOT try to find them by "search" because they will not show up that way)

FOLDERS to delete (in bold) if found:

C:\Program Files\Search Maid
C:\Program Files\Virtual Maid
C:\Windows\System32\Log Files <-WILL be there!
C:\Program Files\Security Iguard
C:\Documents and Settings\Preferred Customer\Favorites\Online Pharmacy\
C:\Documents and Settings\Preferred Customer\Favorites\Online Gambling\

***

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = "

and so forth.

BY booting into safe mode, HijackThis was no longer running. After I did the deletions in safe mode, I opened HJT but could not find a place to place the checks against the processes or whatever. In the meantime somewhere here my obvious problem (desktop not available) has been fixed. I'd like to continue with the fixing process though but can't figure out this step. - thanks / Kozmo

I'm unsure about your question.
I think you have been looking in HijackThis to find Windows Explorer. You won't find it there.
Go to start - Windows Explorer to remove folders. If I want you to use HijackThis, I mentioned it.

Was this an answer to your question?

No. My confusion is within your post you suggested I
1. boot to safe mode
2. "Using Windows Explorer, delete the following ..."
3 "Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running..."
4. "Place a check against each of the following..."

BY booting into safe mode, HijackThis was no longer running. I did the deletions in safe mode with Windows Explorer, then I opened HJT but I could not find where to "Place a check against each of the following".

- thanks / Kozmo

Thanks for all the help. I followed all of your instructions. On the last PandaOnline scan there were 2 infections found and just 1 was disinfected. Things seem to be working well though. A donation will be on the way and here's my clean HijackThis log. Thanks again / Kozmo :tazz:

Can you post me the scanlog from Panda, so we can get ride of the one that got away?


Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PSGuard] C:\Program Files\PSGuard\PSGuard.exe

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Reboot to save mode.

Use Windows Explorer to remove this folder:
C:\Program Files\PSGuard\

Reboot back to normal mode.

How are things now?

Hi kozmob,

Can you do a Find Files for wininet.dll ?

Let me know where the file is found.
One of the folders it is in should be C:\WINDOWS\system32\
I would like you to have that file scanned at:
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

Let us know the results of that scan as well.

Excellent. Reboot your computer and make sure it doesn't connect to the internet.
Unplug it if necessary.

Then copy C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\wininet.dll
and paste it into C:\WINDOWS\System32\wininet.dll

You will be prompted if you want to replace the one already present. You do.

I hope that works. Let me know.

As far as I know I did it. It wouldn't let me paste the file because it was supposedly being used by another process - I was unplugged and had shut down all programs. I was able to rename it - go figure - and then paste the new one in.

All seems to be a-ok. Thanks.

I assume I should now uninstall all these scanning programs; hoster, deldomains, cleanup, and hijackthis. Are there any I should keep and run regularly? I also have adaware and spybot installed and generally use them every few weeks.

Thanks / Kozmo

Hi Kozmo,

Can you let me know exactly what procedure you followed?
Guessing:
1. renamed C:\WINDOWS\System32\wininet.dll to something else
2. copied C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\wininet.dll into C:\WINDOWS\System32
3. Rebooted

Have the file wininet.dll that is now in your system32 folder scanned to make sure it's clean.

And post a new HijackThis log so we can clean out what's left.

Regards,
