Last week my computer got infected with Spy Sheriff. I ran all sorts of spyware removal tools, including HiJackThis and Ewido.
After running this tools i created two new user accounts. An administrator account and an advanced user account (which i use for Internet access).
These two accounts are working fine but the problem is with the old one.
I can´t change my desktop, even after running smitfraud.reg file.

Is there any way to fix this?.

Thanks.

I tryed merging that reg file under safe mode and it didn't work.
A few days ago i entered the registry manually and changed the value NoChangingWallpaper from 1 to 0 and it worked.

Thanks.

I guess so. But my computer is a little bit slower than before. Maybe it's because i installed Panda Titanium 2005. By the way, while it was updating, it detected some registry entries related to SpySheriff.

Below there is a HJT log file.
Two more things. Panda Titanium 2005 detected the file srvany.exe as a hacktool. The name of the hack tool was HackTool/SRunner.C , the antivirus program deleted this file.
The last one, after a random time of been conected a huge amount of data starts to download and i don't know where it comes from becuase all automatic program updates are disabled (including Windows Update) and there is no Internet Related program running.

Hi again Diego8

Go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok
Scroll down and find the services called:

Reset 5


When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok.
  • 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:

    O2 - BHO: CInterfaceObj Object - {58F07DD3-924D-4141-BC74-299F523A95F1} - C:\WINDOWS\pxwma.dll
    O9 - Extra button: Related - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: reset5 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\reset5.dll
    O23 - Service: Reset 5 - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\srvany.exe (file missing)


    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\pxwma.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\reset5.dll

    Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.
Post back a fresh HijackThis log and we will take another look.

Sorry for not answering to this post for almost a week. I finally got rid of SpySheriff.
Yesterday i got infected by another spyware (i guess), but that's another story, which is posted in a new topic.

Thanks.
