Hi again barge,

On the first pass were going to remove the SpySheriff (or whats left of it) and on the second pass well remove whats left. You definitely have other malware than just SpySheriff, so well do this in a few steps.

You mentioned I followed someone elses instructions. When you did this did you modify the settings in the Cleanup! program so that the Scan local drives for temporary files" option was unchecked? If not, this is something well address when your log is clean. Basically we need to restore your Luna theme.


First, download and install CleanUp! but do not run it yet.
*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

I see you already have ewido, so just make sure it is set up as instructed below
  • Install ewido security suite
  • Launch ewido, there should be a big E icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will prompt you to update click the OK button
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
After the updates are installed, exit Ewido

Reboot into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

Once in Safe Mode, Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:
Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files
  • Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

After Cleanup! is finished:
  • Run Ewido
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean the first infected file it finds. Choose "clean", then put a check next to "Perform action on all infections" in the left corner of the box so you don't have to sit and watch Ewido the whole time. 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
  • Exit Ewido
Reboot into normal mode.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following:

SpySheriff

Exit Add or Remove Programs.

Delete the following, in bold, if found:

C:\Documents and Settings\user account\Start Menu\Programs\SpySheriff <-whole folder
C:\Documents and Settings\user account\Application Data\Install.dat
C:\Program Files\SpySheriff <-whole folder
C:\Windows\Desktop.html
C:\winstall.exe

*NOTE* user account is not the actual name of that folder. The name of that folder will be the name of your computer profile.

Make sure you are disconnected from the Internet and that all programs and windows are closed. Run HiJackThis. Place a check next to the following items, if found, and click FIX CHECKED:


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows installer] C:\winstall.exe

Close HiJackThis.


RIGHT-CLICK HERE and go to Save As (in IE it's "Save Target As") in order to download the smitfraud reg to your desktop.

Double-click smitfraud.reg on your desktop. When asked if you want to merge with the registry click YES.

After the merged successfully prompt, using Windows Explorer, navigate to the following folder:

C:\Windows\Prefetch

If there are any files inside the Prefetch folder, delete ALL of them. (Do NOT delete the folder. Just delete the files inside.)

Reboot your computer.

You should be able to change your desktop back to normal now (if you couldnt before).

Please download and follow these instructions for setting up and running Ad-Aware SE 1.06:
Ad-Aware SE Setup (if you already have Ad-Aware 1.06, please update to the latest definitions then set the program up per the instructions on the page).

Post the report from Ewido and a new HiJackThis log into this topic.

My start bar is still NOT back to normal. The bar is not the normal blue XP bar as is normallly the case, it is still the grey old one. When you go to Display properties adn then apperance in the windows and buttons section the only option avilable is windows classic style, HOWEVER there should be a windows XP style available as well. If you could tell me how to get back this option. That would be great.
Thanks

Barge,


Download the Luna theme at
http://users.pandora...patchy/luna.zip

Unzip it (right click the luna.zip and select extract all) and MOVE the luna.msstyles which is present in that folder you unzipped to this folder: C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna

Don't move it to anywhere else other than that folder!

Reboot the PC

Now right click on your desktop>>> properties and under the "themes" tab WindowsXP should be present again. Check the "Appearance" tab and WindowsXP Style should also be present. Select each..click apply..then ok..


Once that is completed and all is well with your start bar

Congratulations, your log is clean. :tazz:


Let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. 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.
2. Restart your computer.

3. 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.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.



The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber 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 - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Weather Watcher - Free taskbar weather program that is free, malware free, and resource light.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

Barge,

Delete the luna.zip you downloaded (if you got that far)

I just tried to download and unzip this and was able to. I wrote down what was happening as I was doing it.
See if it matches up to how you did it.

Let me know if you were successful in the meantime Ill try to find another link



Click on this link - http://users.pandora...patchy/luna.zip

When the File Download Box comes up - click save

(Another option is to right click the link and select Save Target As and continue on from here)


Save it to a location youll remember

When it says Download Complete, click Open Folder

Right Click luna.zip and select extract all and a wizard will come up.
Select Next, then Next again and then Finish.

This will create a new folder called Luna with the luna.msstyles file in it.

Right Click luna.msstyles and select copy.

Then go to C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna
Right Click the Luna folder and select paste.
The C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna folder should now contain luna.msstyles

Reboot the PC

Now right click on your desktop>>> properties and under the "themes" tab WindowsXP should be present again. Check the "Appearance" tab and WindowsXP Style should also be present. Select each..click apply..then ok..
