It seem that my husband went to Micro Trend to do his weekly check up on his pc and saw CW Shredder link , he thought he had clicked the CW Shredder and believes he clicked the Cool Web Icon next to it. I cannot verify which he clicked as the virus will not allow us to get into Trend Micros site by any means we have tried ( straight entering the site, a link, favorites etc.)

Since this has happened his StartPage cannot be changed and shows up as www.blank and several other issues as it has settled into the Windows 32 area and a few others.

We have tried several virus programs, Ewdio, Search & Destroy, AntiVir, even McAfee, in addition I have tried several add a ware and spy ware programs . Each time we run any of these we seem to find it over and over again but are not able to clean it. Like many it seems to have infected many areas and settled in.

We have shown anywhere from 212 files infected to a total of 504 using Ewdio.

We are hoping to avoid a complete reformatting of the pc if at all possible but do understand if that is what it may require.

Thank you for any information and please if there is any more information I can give to help any of you help me with this problem I would be happy to answer any questions.

Thanks Again and here is my report .

Hi Quikzal and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

1. If you haven't logged in go to Geeks to Go and do so. Then proceed to item a.

If you already have logged in, go directly to item a.

a. Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window.
b. In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
c. If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there

2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. Please DELETE your current HJT program from its present location.

4. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!

A. Close ALL windows except HJT

B. SCAN with HJT and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')

C. POST the log in this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')


DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Please download and install these programs - DON'T RUN THEM YET!!
  • Please download and unzip About:Buster to a folder on your Desktop. Inside the folder is a readme file that has instructions on the use of the program.
    • AboutBuster MUST be updated before you use it.
    • Start AboutBuster, click the update button, check for update, drag the box to the side and hit download updates, close the box . Don't run it yet.
  • Please download and install AD-Aware.
    Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

  • Download HSfix from HERE and unzip it to your desktop.


  • Download CW-Shredder at the link below:
    http://cwshredder.ne...CWSshtreder.exe

  • Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options.
    • Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
    • Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" .
    • Now click "Apply to all folders"
    • Click "Apply" then "OK"
  • For anyone using Windows XP, 'Search' will not automatically show hidden files even if your folder options settings are set to do that.
    Do this so you can see hidden files and folders - click HERE to download XPhidden.zip by David Higham. Extract xphidden.reg from the zip file and save it to the desktop. When done, double-click the xphidden.reg and when asked to merge say yes.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here's the fix:


1. Go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok. Click on the Extended Tab.

Scroll down and find the service called:

Network Security Service

2. 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 and close any open windows.
If you dont find this service listed go ahead with the next steps.

3. Reboot into SafeMode. <---MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO DO THIS!!

4. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete once => Click Task Manager => Click the Processes tab => Double-click the Image Name column header to alphabetically sort the processes => Scroll through the list and look for:

NOTHING TO DO HERE

If you find the files, highlight them, and then click End Process => Exit the Task Manager.


5. CLOSE ALL WINDOWS AND BROWSERS Scan with Hijack This and put checks next to all the following, then click "Fix Checked"

How is your system running? If there are no signs of the infection, we can commence final but essential cleanup procedures.

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1. Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
2. Left click on "System Restore Tab"
3. Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
4. Left click on "Apply"

TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1.Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
2.Click on "Apply"

2. Cleanup the leftovers. Download 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.


3. Finally, Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.


Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

Make sure you keep your Windows OS current by visiting Windows update
regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. With out these you are leaving the backdoor open.

I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My Favorite)

Regards,

Trevuren
