Hey there, just a couple weeks ago i got that damned annoying spy sheriff on my xp comp. I just found out today it stopped initiating at startup but im not sure its totally gone. Also when it first installed itself, it left this blu background with a message saying SYSTEM STOPPED... and sum other garbage. The background overlapps my original so it just sits there no matter wat background i change. That and suddenly in my control panel, i have no option to change the background. ;)
I am not the most computer smart guy so if u could jsut walk me though sum steps to get me on my way ill be just fine :tazz:
By the way, while i was trying to get rid of spy sheriff i used CleanUp! and spybot S&D but it didnt get rid of sheriff. So.. i really dont kno wut happened to sheriff, i jsut want to make sure its totally off my comp. Thanks a bunch.

Hi Hadezowner and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

I can see that you have some malware issues. This maybe a few step process in removing it. I encourage you to stick with it and follow my directions as closely as possible so as to avoid complicating the problem further.

Before you do anything else, please create a folder for HijackThis and put it in a permanent folder (like C:\HJT) instead of the Temp folder. This is required because HijackThis will create backups and we don't want them to be deleted

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.


DOWNLOAD PROGRAMS

Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!


THE FIX

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Now scan with HiJackThis and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

Go to Start->Run and type in services.msc and hit OK. Then look for WinTools for IE service (WinToolsSvc) and double click on it. Click on the Stop button and under Startup type, choose Disabled.

Do the same for this service also: WebSeach Toolbar support NT service (TBPSSvc)

Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel(if present):

Daily Weather Forecast
PSGuard
SpySheriff
TBPS
WinTools


Please remove the following folders using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\Program Files\Daily Weather Forecast
C:\Program Files\PSGuard
C:\Program Files\SpySheriff
C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar
C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\WinTools


Please remove just the files from the following paths using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\kxvue.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mluxui.dll


===================================================

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Now open Ewido Security Suite
  • Click on scanner
  • Make sure the following boxes are checked before scanning:
    • Binder
    • Crypter
    • Archives
  • Click on Start Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK
Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save Report
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Website > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!

Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

Let us know how your computer is running :tazz:

Just to tell u a few things that didnt go exactly as directed: Im assuming i had to press "Fix" when checking off the HJT items, i did not have a "Secrutiy Info" check box (instead it was "Unlock Desktop Items" which i left unchecked), in the Panda ActiveScan there was no autoclean checkbox.

Thx for ur help Excal, very much appreciated.

Hi Hadezowner,


Your log looks clean ;)

Malware always leaves a few random files and/or folders. I really need the active scan log so we can delete them ;)


Thanks,

:tazz:

Just a few random bad files and folders to clean up.

Please remove the following folders using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Gain Publishing
C:\Program Files\MyWay
C:\Program Files\MediaLoads*
C:\Program Files\SearchRelevancy
C:\WINDOWS\system32\P2P Networking
C:\Documents and Settings\Little Man\Application Data\PSGuard.com
  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click on the configure button on the bottom right
  • Click on the tab "Misc Tools"
  • Click on "Delete File on Reboot"
  • Navigate to this file - C:\WINDOWS\system32\Shex.exe
  • Double click on that file.
[*] HJT asks you if you want to reboot, now. Click "yes".


Post back when you finish and tell me how your computer is running :tazz:

Just a hidden folder. ;)

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE

Spybot S&D


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4

Spywareguard

IE/Spyad


A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:

Sygate

Kerio

ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox

Opera

This site is a great source for tightening up security on Internet Explorer settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Hi Hadezowner,

The majority of anti-virus programs do put the infected files into quarantine section (vault). So you are tasked with deleting the files if you wish ;)
Hope that helped ;)


Thanks,
