1. Please do a search for oled.dll and PSGuard.Ink. Note their complete paths. Then add then to the list of files to Killbox that you will find a little lower.

2. 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.

Download Killbox here: http://www.downloads...org/KillBox.exe and put it on your desktop

Open Killbox

Check the following boxes:

Standard File Kill
End Explorer Shell While Killing file


Copy & paste the full path of each of the files below into the Killbox topmost box.

C:\w.exe
C:\WINDOWS\smdat32a.sys
C:\PROGRAM FILES\Need2Find
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AdCache
C:\Program Files\GRETECH\GomPlayer\Dodge.dll


With the full path to the file name in the topmost textbox, Click the Red X ...and for the confirmation message that will appear, you will need to click Yes

Do this for each of the files listed. Some will not be deleted. Make sure you keep a list of them.

When you are through the list, use killbox to delete the files you were not able to delete as follows:

Open Killbox

Check the following boxes:

Delete on Reboot

With the full path to the file name in the topmost textbox. Click the Red X ...and for the confirmation message that will appear, you will need to click Yes

A second message will ask to Reboot now? you will need to click No (since you are not finished adding all related files in yet)

Click yes on the last file.

Note: Killbox will let you know if the file does not exist.

After the reboot scan with hijackthis post a fresh log.


Regards,

Trevuren

HI, thanks for sticking with this I'm getting a bit :tazz:

that stupid dog can't find oled.dll. I searched for ole*.dll and there are a couple of dozen files, but I cant' figure out how to just copy their names in here to show you. Please forgive, but are you sure its oled?? Only, I think PSGuard.Ink, should be PSGuard.lnk, with an 'el' - it's those fonts.


Thanks
Alex

Hi there
I hope your wife didn't stay up all night reading about half-blood princes.

Anyway, I tried several times to kill and kill on reboot the need2find and PSGuard files. Then I rescanned with Panda, and copied paths from their report:


Incident Status Location

Adware:adware/twain-tech No disinfected C:\WINDOWS\smdat32m.sys

xx Adware:adware/need2find No disinfected C:\PROGRAM FILES\Need2Find

x Spyware:spyware/cydoor No disinfected C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM3\AdCache

x Adware:adware/psguard No disinfected C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\START MENU\PROGRAMS\PSGuard
Adware:adware/exactsearch No disinfected HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\ACTIVEX COMPATIBILITY\{53F066F0-A4C0-4F46-83EB-2DFD03F938CF}
x Possible Virus. No disinfected C:\!Submit\Dodge.dll



The files marked x I deleted, and the file marked xx deleted on reboot. And hooray, PSGuard is gone from start/programs menu. It is still in a folder C\!Submit.

The files unmarked above,HKEY... and smdat32... I did nothing with. Can you advise?

I rescanned with Panda, [hard disks only, as last time it got stuck on disc drive E, with no disc in it], no viruses found.

hjt log follows

Forget about the file. Your system is one of the cleanest around. So it is time for the final but essential cleanup and recommendations. It has been a pleasure working with you.

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

Hi Trevuren

Hooray! ;) Huge thanks to you, Dr T - especially from the family, who think I've been a bit tense the past couple of days...

I will download the recommended apps and install. My wife is urging me to change browsers, but the anti-spyware software, and IE/Spyad thing, for example, is that any use on something like firefox??

It seems that while IE is most vulnerable to attacks, as the most popular browser, there is also the most security work/updates/etc being done for it. But perhaps that's a topic for a different forum.

Thanks heaps for your patience, and know there are some cold beers waiting for you in New Plymouth - and a couple of Harry Potter conversationalists - when you get to this neck of the woods. :tazz:

Alex

Ooops. i note that in navigating around to get these downloads sorted, I am getting window pop-up that reads New Offer to You! in the title bar - but the page cannot be displayed - is that a vestigial effect, or just a normal consequence of IE browsing, or am I (gulp) still infected? ;)

1. Hosts and IESpyads are good for anything.

2. As far as browsers go, I have both on my system. I mostly use IE but am gradually changing over to Firefox due to the tabbed browsing. Good for my kind of work. Firefox is proving itself to be vulnerable also but most hackers can't be bothered yet because market share is too small. So I would have to say, probably safer for now.

3. Pleasure working with you.
