Hi. I am new to this. I had problems with unwanted websites popping up while browsing and cannot access my banking website. I access the banks main web page but when I click on Internet banking I am directed to the secure page but is then automatically logged off before I can put in my passwords. I browsed your website, registered and went through the preliminary excercise befor sending you this HJS log. I am including the Ewido Security Suite report aswell.

I would really appreciate any help on getting rid of the menaces on my computer and return to hassel free use of the internet.

The HJT log is below.

Hi Thatman

Firstly thank you for your prompt reply. I have done as you said and below is the new HJT log and attached is the log from Panda Virus. I did a Panda scan yesterday and got an email from that Reads as follows:-

Dear client,

After analysing the message you sent to PandaLabs, we inform you that a new malware was detected in it.

A Panda ActiveScan update, shortly available, will successfully detect and delete this threat from your computer.

The files C:\Documents and Settings\Philip van Vuuren\Local Settings\Temp\iinstall.exe, C:\Documents and Settings\Philip van Vuuren\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\UFGPSNWX\istdownload[1].exe belong to the spyware detected as Spyware/ISTbar by Panda products that offer protection against this kind of malware.

The following advice will help you to eliminate the Spyware/ISTbar and protect yourself against it in future. Visit our web page with information about the malware: http://www.pandasoft...x?idvirus=41347
Follow the instructions on how to eliminate the malware: http://www.pandasoft...x?idvirus=41347

If the malware is inside a CAB file, then you must delete this CAB file manually.

If your computer has Windows Millennium or Windows XP installed, you can find information to permanently remove all trace of the virus in the following URL: Windows Milenium http://www.pandasoft...d=17&IdIdioma=2
Windows XP http://www.pandasoft...d=18&IdIdioma=2

At http://www.pandasoft....com/virus_info there is extensive information on all malware detected by our antivirus, as well as the steps to take to remove them from your system.

If you want more information on how to update your antivirus and the action to take when new viruses appear, visit our Support pages at: http://www.pandasoftware.com/support/. You will also find full information and FAQs about your product. We hope this answer has been helpful and do not hesitate to contact us should you need any suspicious file analyzed in future.

If you do not have an antivirus program or you would like to receive up-to-date information about the characteristics of our new products and which types of malware detects each of them, we offer you the Panda antivirus solution that best meets your needs. http://www.pandasoftware.com/products

Best regards,

Hi Thatman

I thank you for the help youhave given me thus far. I really appreciate it. I have followed your instructions to the letter and the result is as posted below.

I have to add the following:-

C:\sfwexec-xp is a legitimate program, (it is a equity analysis program that downloads data from the JSE and displays graphs of the data for analysis), although it appears on the panda online logs as a possible virus. I will contact the software writers and clarify this with them. I ran Ad-Aware se and picked up a VX2 and Scanpower as critical objects. I followed the process and had Ad-Aware se remove the pests. It appears they were in the restore files. I ran Ad-Aware SE again and got 2 more pests.

Hi phvan

C:\sfwexec-xp is a legitimate program
I will contact the software writers and clarify this with them.
Please let me know what the reply is Thank you

Your HijackThis log is now showing no malware operation on the system.

C:\Program Files\180searchassistant<--Delete this folder

Please search your registery for Powerscan here are some registery hive's I know off.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\powerscan
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\power scan
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\power scan\_{cfbfae00-17a6-11d0-99cb-00c04fd64497}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\powerscan
powerscan.exe is an advertising program by Integrated Search Technologies. This process comes packaged with a search toolbar for Internet Explorer, but monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analyses. This also prompts advertising popups. This program is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately.

As with most software removed from a system there is allways some registery key left behind, It is like looking for a neddle in a haystack..

To see if you have remove the registery keys use the panda scan
