Hello there and thanks for help in advance. I used google to search for a way to remove this virus and it lead me to your site and the post bellow

http://www.geekstogo..._it-t41414.html

So having a similar issue i ran through the steps installing the 2 virus programs suggested and the hijack this. This is my log I hope I have done things right I'm not too computer literate so you will have to bear with me thanks .

Extra info I no longer have any kind of desktop themes or any way to change desktop display. Also the desktop is now blue with the following written on it.

"A fatal error in IE has occured at 0028:C001E36 in UXD UMM (01)
00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML Smitfraud.c

System cannot function in normal mode.
Please check your security settings
Scan your C with any available virus / spyware remove programes
to fix the problem"

Also i have a red circle with a ! inside linking to the following www.psguard.com

Oh boy! You dug up lots of malwares there! Take a deep breathe, and just calm down... We will take them down one at a time.

:tazz:

Please SAVE THIS PAGE or secure a PRINT COPY of the instructions for reference.
==========================================
You are advised to temporarily DISABLE the following Protection Programs:
  • Trojan Hunter Guard
(Note: We will re-ENABLE them later after your system is all clean and malware free.)
==========================================
Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.
Do NOT run it yet.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Do NOT run the scan yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
(How to boot in Safe Mode...)
===================================================
We will now fix the remaining problems with HijackThis. Please close all remaining windows, disconnect from the internet, open HijackThis then click SCAN. Please put a check on the following items listed below:

O9 - Extra button: SideFind - {10E42047-DEB9-4535-A118-B3F6EC39B807} - C:\Program Files\SideFind\sidefind.dll (file missing)

O16 - DPF: {42F2C9BA-614F-47C0-B3E3-ECFD34EED658} - http://www.ysbweb.co.../ysb_cracks.cab
O16 - DPF: {7C559105-9ECF-42B8-B3F7-832E75EDD959} (Installer Class) - http://www.xxxtoolba...006_regular.cab

Make sure to double check the items you have selected,then click Fix Checked.
===================================================

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.
===================================================
  • Uninstallation
    We need to uninstall the following programs:
  • Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
  • Please locate if they exist

    • Side Find
    • PS Guard
  • Click Uninstall
  • Confirm with OK
===================================================
Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
  • When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Website > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.
===================================================
Be sure to View Hidden and System Files.

Through Windows Explorer, delete the following folder(s) or files(s) if they exist (in bold):
  • C:\Program Files\SideFind
  • C:\Program Files\PSGuard
Finally, Empty Recycle Bin
===================================================
Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!
Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.
Let us know if any problems persist.

Ok, since your last reply with directions, a lot has been done to the machine in question. Tonight after requesting the topic be reopened I went through the directions you'd posted again. Because much may have changed with the original scan logs you reviewed I figured the best place to start was with the current hijack this log.

Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

This will likely be a few step process in removing the malware that has infected your system. I encourage you to stick with it and follow my directions as closely as possible so as to avoid complicating the problem further.

You have a nasty CoolWebSearch infection. First we will need to download a few tools that will help us in the removal of your problem.

Please read the instructions for About:Buster then download it to a safe location where you can easily remember it.
Please Download the stand-alone version of CoolWebShredder
Download SpSeHjfix HERE
Download Cleanup.

Save all of these files somewhere you will remember like to the Desktop.

Unzip SpSeHjfix to its own folder (ie c:\SpSeHjfix)

Run the CleanUp! installer. You dont need to do anything with it right now.

Update About:Buster
  • Unzip the contents of AboutBuster.zip and an AboutBuster directory will be created.
  • Navigate to the AboutBuster directory and double-click on AboutBuster.exe.
  • Click "OK" at the prompt with instructions.
  • Click "Update" and then "Check For Update" to begin the update process.
  • If any updates exist please download them by clicking "Download Update" then click the X to close that window.
  • Now close About:Buster
Update CWShredder
  • Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
  • Click Check For Update
  • Close CWShredder
Reboot in SAFE MODE. (How to boot in Safe Mode...)

Please close all remaining windows, open HijackThis then click SCAN. Please put a check on the following items listed below:

Make sure to double check the items you have selected, then click Fix Checked.

Please run about:buster by RubbeRDuckY:
  • Click Begin Removal.
  • Click Yes to allow it to shutdown explorer.exe.
  • It will begin to check your computer for malicious files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so.
  • When it has finished, click Save Log. Make sure you save it as I may need a copy of it later.
  • Reboot your computer into safe mode again
In the event you get an error message then do the following:
Start > Run then paste this in the dialog box

regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\COMCTL32.OCX

Run about:buster again following the same instructions as above, this time without the restart at the end

Now run CWShredder. Click I Agree, then Fix and then Next, let it fix everything it asks about.

Now run SpSeHjfix. A log will be saved in the same folder that you put the exe into. Please post the results of that log in your next reply.

Be sure to View Hidden and System Files.

Through Windows Explorer, delete the following folder(s) or files(s) if they exist (in bold):
  • C:\DOCUME~1\qw\LOCALS~1\Temp\se.dll
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\hmek.dll
Finally, Empty Recycle Bin

Now run CleanUp!. Click CleanUp and allow it to delete all the temporary files. Reboot your computer into normal windows.

Please run an on-line virus scan at Kaspersky Online Scan or if that doesnt work, you can have an On-line scan at this sites:
Trend Micro or Panda Scan or BitDefender.
(Please post the results of the scan(s) in your next reply)

After all that, please post back with how things went as well as the logs requested and a new HiJackThis log.

Good Luck!

:yes: :) :tazz: :( :woot: :tazz: :huh: :( :wub: :hug: :woot:


Congratulations! ;) your system is CLEAN!

WinXP Reset & All-Clean1

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, 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.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visitmonthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scannersweekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.
