Can't seem to get rid of this guy, and it keeps spawning other garbage. I've run Adaware SE Personal and Spybot Search and Destroy v1.3 and after I clean out everything, CleverIEhooker.jeired keeps coming back for more! Suggestions please.

Here's my HijackThis log:

Run Hijack this and Place a check in the box only next to this entry and click fix checked.

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: mad.dll

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:
http://www.moosoft.com/

Post new log with any new information you may have on this.

Ok, I removed the indicated .dll in HijackThis as you said.

The scan at the first link found a trojan caled IMISERV and cleaned it out. Nothing found in the second scan.

Just noticed the mad.dll appears to be back. I'll wait for your response before I do anything though.

Mosaic1 has created a bat file that should help us, download it from here.
http://www.geekstogo...=download&id=34

A few setup items first we need to do, make sure you can view all hidden files and folders, use this link for help.
http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

Next, review this article How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP

Sign Off the Internet and Stay Off Until All Steps Are Finished

Extract the batch file (hiving.bat) and run it. If you have script blocking enabled you will get a warning. Please allow this to run. The script is just producing a message box. Double click on the batch to run it. After a reboot the super hidden nasty file will no longer be loaded and will be visible.

Restart into Safe mode and find this file:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\nameofdll.dll

Right click on the file and choose properties.
Use the security tab on .dll and take ownership.
Change the 'everyone special' to
'you> with Admin rights-> FULL control
Then try to delete it, if that fails try to rename
it first to different name+ext.
Example:
ctl.dll>bleh.txt
bleh.txt > badfile.111

Once you have successfully deleted the file restart into Regular Windows mode.

Run CWShredder immediately. Press the 'Fix' button to clean.

Run Ad-aware
Restart.

Report back if you're successful or not.

Downloaded the .bat file, set to view all hidden files like you said, read the article, and disconnected from the internet. I then tried to run hiving.bat, but all that comes up is a cmd screen with the follosing text:

Working

! REG.EXE VERSION 2.0

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows

Error: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value


A VBScript error message instantly pops up with the text:

No Appinit_Dlls value Present
Removal Aborted


What now???

Here's a fresh log:

Seemed to have worked anyway. <_<

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {20EC3D2D-33C1-4C9D-BC37-C2D500688DA2} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\Program Files\TV Media <- this folder

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. :D

Just to clarify, during the previous procedure you gave me, after running hiving.bat, I never was able to find the file "nameofdll.dll" you mentioned in your earlier post, even after setting to show all files and protected system files.

Anyway, I just completed all the steps in your most recent post (while offline), and here's the new log:

I did notice after running the HijackThis scan that the TVMedia items seem to have returned. However, I won't touch them until I receive your next response. FYI, system seems to be running faster. I've used Internet Explorer (Yuck!) for about 15 minutes now, as this seemed to be when the problems occured, and the popups seem to have stopped. Oh, and I made the switch to Firefox <_< I await your response.

Thanks again!

Let's try it again. Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.


R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {20EC3D2D-33C1-4C9D-BC37-C2D500688DA2} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll (file missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\Program Files\TV Media <- this folder

Please delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself) like for example
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
C:\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, be sure to also select delete all offline content.


Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working.

My system seems to be running very smoothly now.

I did notice that the TCActive! and TCMonitor programs are running in the background (related to "The Cleaner" trojan scanner I think?). Do you think I should remove them? Or is it best to leave them running? I guess the real question is how much of my system resources are soaked up by allowing them to keep running?

Anyway, let me know what to do next.

You can uninstall The Cleaner.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D

Thanks a million! I've already made the switch to Firefox, I installed Sun's Java, spywareblaster is running smoothly, and WindowsUpdate is up-to-date. Is there ANYTHING else that you would recommend to prevent any future attacks? A particular firewall you suggest?

Well, again thanks to all of you folks for your help and expertise. Boy, am I glad I found this place. I was beginning to feel like this guy.

Thanks again!
