I would greatly appreciate any help with a malware problem on my home PC. Symptoms are:
* Crippled internet access
* Aurora / and other less family friendly pop-ups
* www2.bigtrafficnetwork.com trying to connect in place of home page (google)
* Task manager shows random named executables running that respawn (as a new random name) as quickly as I can end them. (I see one of these running even in Safe Mode)

I have performed all the steps recommended on your site with the exception of not being able to pull the latest updates/definitions because I could not connect to the internet (I am posting this from my work PC). Following is the HJT log. Thank you very much.

Please set your system to show
all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

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:

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them:

C:\WINDOWS\zeqcsvc.exe
C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe
C:\WINDOWS\wqlkdll.EXE
c:\windows\system32\cmfxlmk.exe
C:\DOCUME~1\Brian\LOCALS~1\Temp\3.tmp\THNALL~1.EXE

Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.

If you were unable to find any of the files then please follow these additional instructions:

Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it; save it to your Desktop.

Run it, and click the radio button that says Delete a file on reboot. For each of the files you could not delete, paste them one at a time into the full path of file to delete box and click the red circle with a white cross in it.

The program will ask you if you want to reboot; say No each time until the last one has been pasted in whereupon you should answer Yes.

Let the system reboot.

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and we will take another look.

How is your computer running?

Thanks for the timely reply. It's a pleasure to be assisted by an expert and a Red Sox fan. Performed instructions as specified. I didn't find any of the files I was instructed to delete using explorer so I entered them in Pocket Killbox but don't know if it found them either. Here is new HJT log: Thanks very much for the assistance.

Hey! Glad to be helpin out another Redsox Fan :tazz:

Please download nailfix at http://users.pandora...chy/nailfix.zip (for Windows XP) or http://users.pandora...y/nailfix2k.zip (for Windows 2000) Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

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:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://websearch.drs...esearch.cgi?id=

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AutoUpdater] "C:\Program Files\AutoUpdate\AutoUpdate.exe"
O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsear...?p=ZNxdm006YYUS


Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Run The Nail Fix

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

c:\windows\system32\xgvqzqd.exe

Reboot

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and we will take another look. Hows your computer running? ;)

Thanks very much for the help. Things are looking better after this next round. I had trouble finding the Nailfix program on the Pandora site. I ended up locating it at a link I found at noidea.us and (the legitimate) aurora.com. It was at dknoppix.com. This seemed to work as I observed no unwanted popups after this and the machine was much more responsive. I saw the Nailfix program run briefly in a DOS window and noticed that the last line was "access denied". It ran too fast to see any more so I directed the output to a file:

Command Line Process Viewer/Killer/Suspender for Windows NT/2000/XP V2.03
Copyright© 2002-2003 Craig.Peacock@beyondlogic.org
Killing PID 3080 'explorer.exe'
Killing PID 3080 'explorer.exe'
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DrPMon.dll
_______________________________________
The "access denied" message did not appear in the ouput file.

I never did find c:\windows\system32\xgvqzqd.exe

Thanks

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. ;)

Also we highly recommend installing SP2. Click here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/.
-or-
It's a very large download, so if you're on dial-up, order a free CD here:
http://www.microsoft...default810.mspx




Are you still having troubles on this computer still?

Thank you very much for the assistance. This is a great service and I know that this problem would not have been solved without assistance. Pop-ups and bad behavior appear to be gone so I think we can call this case resolved. Thanks again.
