Hello,

First, I want to say thank you and tell you how grateful I am that you are here. This was a scary experience.

I am just computer literate enough to get myself into trouble. After random surfing this morning, I began to see pop-ups and notice a slow down in IE. I ran AdAware and came up with quite a few items.

I cleaned them out, went to task manager and found two processes I did not recognize. I Googled them and, after some looking, discovered I had 12TrojanDownloader.Win32.Agent.bq. Great...

I have found small trojans before, but nothing like this. It is related to CoolWebSearch?

Anyway, I went to Symantec online scan and it came back safe. I was sure this was in error as IE was crawling.

Luckily, I found this site. As per your advice I DL'd and ran CWSShredder, Spybot, Ewido, TDS-3, and did Trend Housecall. Here is the HijackThis log:

My only problem seems to be that IE still launches on boot-up, but if someone could have a look at this, I would be grateful.

Again, many thanks!

Hi Loophole,

So far it's running like a champ. Thank you sooooo much.

That was a really ugly one. Is it new? Is that why Symantec didn't recognize it?

Anyway, thanks again!

Good job ;)

your system is clean :tazz:

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 Spyware Aid'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.
