Hey,

Im sorry I havent posted in forever. I went away for a very long weekend. I'm not sure exactly what you wanted me to do. I can't give up AIM. While at this location I run AOL and AIM together but when I am at school, I only use AIM and occasionally go onto AOL. These are the files you told me to delete:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AOL Instant Messenger] aimsgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [AOL Instant Messenger] aimsgr.exe
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Uninstall BitDefender Online Scanner v8 - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)

I can get rid of both 09 ones if you still want, but should I not touch the 04 ones since I want to keep AIM? And also I shouldnt delete that aimsgr.exe file in windows explore in safe mode right? But should I still delete all the files in the prefetch folder?

Just in case my computer has changed since the last time I posted, I will give a new HJT.

Hope you had a happy 4th of July,

Becky

Hi Becky,

One of most common tricks used by the people spreading malware is to attempt and cover up their tracks by giving names to their files which sound very similar to genuine programs. The reason is very simple - laymen will not delete the files and infection will continue to roost on their PCs.

aim.exe is the genuine AOL Instant Messenger file. aimsgr.exe is not !!!!! Another example I can quote is - svchost.exe is a genuine and critical windows file. SOme of the infections use files names like scvhost.exe or shchost.exe etc. Please feel free to google on the file - aimsgr.exe - and let me know what you find and whether anybody has not addressed this file as a malicious file.

I didnt suggest Trillian because deleting this file would disable AOL Instant Messenger. Trillian was suggested because it is a much better program than AOL Instant Messenger and offers better functionalities that AIM or MSN Messenger etc. Using Trillian, you can connect to AOL, MSN, ICQ etc. using one single platform. However that is your choice. We will suggest better choices for you but will not foist our choices on you unless they are absolutely necessary and critical.

aimsgr.exe needs to be fixed.


Run Hijack This and click on scan. The following items need to be fixed -

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AOL Instant Messenger] aimsgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [AOL Instant Messenger] aimsgr.exe
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Uninstall BitDefender Online Scanner v8 - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)


Close all windows other than Hijack This. Check the boxes next to above items and click on Fix checked.

Reboot the PC in Safe Mode.

Open Windows Explorer (right click on Start and then click on explore). Locate and delete the following folders and files -

aimsgr.exe (use the windows search function to locate this file)

Clear out the files in the Prefetch folder. Go to start> run> type into the box Prefetch and delete all the files in that folder. Dont delete the folder, only the files in it !!!!!!!!


Reboot the PC in Normal Mode.


Run Hijack This and post a fresh HJT log.

Hi becky,

How is your PC behaving now ???


We need to now bolster the security on your PC. Please visit

Windows security and critical updates
Internet Explorer security and critical updates

and get the latest updates installed.

You should be able to install Service Pack 2 (SP2) at this stage. In case the SP2 does not install, then the site provides for means to order a free CD with Service Pack 2. Do so.

Reboot the PC and post a fresh HJT log.

Hey,

my computer has been great. Thanks so much for your help! I used to have service pack 2 but actually uninstalled it. It was blocking me from accessing important websites such as my school e-mail. Just about every website I went to had the annoying popup that I had to right click and hti allow every time I visited the same site. Do you really think it is necessary to have it?

Hi Becky,

SP2 is actually necessary for your PC. Chances are that it didnt get installed properly last time. This happens when the PC is already infected and we try to install SP2.

That is the reason why you should install it now, given that your PC has been completely cleaned up.

Please install it and let me know if you have issues because of it or any other issues at all !!!

Hey,

Sorry I haven't replied in so long. My computer has been doing so great that I just forgot. I downloaded the SP2 and you were right, this time it has not interfered with my computer. I am able to access my mail and all other important sites with no problem.

I have enclosed my HJT file in case there are any last things you want me to do, but everything seems great to me. The only thing is that every time I run the microsoft antispyware, it comes up with Navidad Worm located in C:\windows\system32\exp. I always hit remove but it comes up the next time. But my computer is working perfectly well so it must not do anything but I thought I'd let you know.

Thanks so much for your help. I would still be dying with pop ups if it weren't for you!

Becky

Hi Becky,


CONGRATULATIONS !!!!! your PC is clean :tazz:


I would recommend the following steps to keep your PC clean (especially Step 8 now that your PC is clean) –

PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR FUTURE

Operating System
1. Keep the Windows and Internet Explorer updated with the latest fixes. These fixes are available free from Microsoft. Click on Tools in the IE menu bar and then on Windows update. You can also the following links

Windows security and critical updates
Internet Explorer security and critical updates

Also ensure that automatic updates are enabled for faster updation of the system.
(Right click on My Computer on your desktop, properties and Automatic Updates tab.


Anti-Virus Software
2. Keep your Anti-virus program updated with the latest definitions. Some of the common anti-virus programs in use are :

Norton Anti-Virus
McAfee Anti-Virus
AVG Anti-Virus --- freeware
Avast Home Edition --- freeware

Use only one anti-virus program as multiple such programs can create conflicts between themselves and severely hamper the performance of your PC.


Firewall
3. You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
Sygate Personal Firewall, Kerio Personal Firewall, ZoneAlarm


Internet Browsers
4. Have robust explorer settings. It is preferable to use an internet browser other that IE as most of the malware is targetted at IE. In case you prefer to use IE, then download a list of innocent looking but harmful websites from IE-Spyad and install it on ur PC. IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your internet explorer's restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't really innocent at all.

Some alternate browsers I suggest are Firefox Mozilla Browser and Opera

Ensure that Security level, irrespective of whichever browser you use, is set at Medium or higher, restrict the usage of cookies and activeX components.


Spyware Protection
5. Have a wall of protection against spyware / adware by installing SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs.
SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources.
SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation and browser hijack attempts. Both have free ongoing updates.


Spyware Removers
6. Install programs for scanning for malware and uninstalling them. Two of the best programs, both are freeware, are :

Spybot Search & Destroy - A powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.

AdAware SE Personal Edition - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.


Regular Maintenance of PC
7. Finally, invest some time for regular maintenance of your PC. Delete the temporary Internet files, temporary files, cookies etc. Click on Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run the program Disk Cleanup. Follow the instructions.

An alternate freeware software which can be used is CleanUp.

Keep your Registry clean. My favourite software is Registry First Aid. This is not a freeware but a trial version can be downloaded.


System Restore Points
8. Since your PC is currently clean, create a system restore point. A system restore would enable you to revert to the settings on the PC when the restore point was created. It is also a good idea to flush all earlier system restore points which may be containing infected files.

A. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

B. Restart your computer.

C. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

System Restore will now be active again.


Go ahead and enjoy a clean PC !!!!!!!!!!!!!
