OK, I did everything listed in the FAQ at the top of this section, and on boot-up, Spy Sheriff still starts up and takes over my desktop. Here is the HiJack This log:

Thanks-I'll get this done this afternoon, and post the results!

One question-in HiJack This, All of that "Gliconline" stuff is set up for work. Can I just leave that there? Or Am I better off just following the instructions to the letter, and getting the problem fixed completely? (I can always re-install my software for work)

Thanks,

Greg

No please leave it then. I couldn't find any info on them, so I thought you were better of without them. A 016 entries is recreated as soon as you go there again, so it wouldn't even hurt in your case.

You will need to put the site back in your trusted zone thou; that is infected and we are curing that now.

The only problem I seem to be having now is that the taskbar is all in an "Old Style" (sort of like windows 2000) and I can't seem to get back the windows XP taskbar.

ANy ideas?

THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP SO FAR!!!

Adware:Adware/CWS.Searchmeup No disinfected C:\WINDOWS\tool1.exe
Adware:Adware/PurityScan No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Gregory\Desktop\hijackthis\backups\backup-20050627-113028-320.dll

Virus:Trj/LowZones.EZ Disinfected C:\WINDOWS\tool1.exe


It looks like it took care of the tool1.exe after all.
The hijackthis backup can be deleted from within HijackThis:
Open HijackThis
go to config - misc tools - backup and remove the entire backup there.

***

Double-click Killbox.exe to run it.

Select "Delete on Reboot".
Place the following line (complete path) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Shex.exe
Put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot"
Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

***

Download
http://users.pandora...patchy/luna.zip

Unzip it and MOVE the luna.msstyles which is present in that folder you unzipped to next folder: C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna
Don't move it to anywhere else than that folder!

When moved it there, rightclick on your desktop > properties ... and look if Windows XPstyle is now present again. Choose apply and OK.

If not, reboot first, and try again to select Windows XPstyle

***

How are things now?

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware, Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
