Hi and thanks for Geeks to Go...it's an awesome site!

I had a a bad attack from what seemed like a bunch of independent malicious programs. The pop-ups were crazy...ABI Network, www.odp.com, Winfixer and others. They slowed the machine dramatically, froze programs, started my applications on their own and other weird things.

I followed all the "required steps" and so far it seems to have stopped the pop-ups, the take-over of the machine, etc.

However, when I reboot I am getting 2 error pop-ups:

RUNDLL
Error loading c:\Windows\cfgmgr.dll
Specified module can not be found

Also:

RUNDLL
Error loading c:\Windows\AUNPS2.dll
Specified module can not be found

I was also getting the "WinFixer 2005 Installer" pop-up, but I downloaded Start-up Control Panel 2.8 by Mike Lin (was recommended on another Geeks2go post I read) and unchecked the process that related to it...so it did not come up on the next reboot. However, I suspect that doesn't mean it's gone...it's just not coming up on start-up now.

The Start-up Control Panel also shows a number of unknown startup functions including 2 that seem to be generating the RUNDLL errors above, but I wasn't sure if these processes were important to the start-up or not, so I did not uncheck them.

So, should I uncheck the 2 processes related to the RUNDLL errors and see if they both stop coming up also?

Or, did I do wrong by downloading this program...by just treating the symptoms rather than the underlying problem?

Should I run Hijackthis now, even though it seems the main pop-up and hijack problem is gone?

Thank you so much for all the good work you do! It's good to know we can turn to the "good guys" when trying to fight these powerful computer demons!

Hi cjosey,

Your looks quite good.

Run Hijack This and click on scan. The following items need to be fixed -

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {4AA870AC-8427-42a4-B92E-ECD956197489} - (no file)
O16 - DPF: {15AD6789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - http://static.windup.../bridge-c18.cab

Close all windows other than Hijack This. Check the boxes next to above items and click on Fix checked.



Regarding the two pop ups that you get -

RUNDLL
Error loading c:\Windows\cfgmgr.dll
Specified module can not be found


The genuine windows file is located in C:\Windows\System32 folder.

RUNDLL
Error loading c:\Windows\AUNPS2.dll
Specified module can not be found


This is a bad file.

Can you tell me something about the two processes which you have linked to the above files and the error pop-ups?? I will then tell you what to do with them. Also give me a list of all items you think are suspicious

Hey Tampabelle,

I was able to find out on other Geeks2go posts that both of those files were associated with malicious processes, so I went ahead and deleted them using the Startup Control Panel 2.8 before I ran the Hijackthis scan. So, those processes were no longer on my computer when I ran the first Hijackthis scan. Sorry, I forgot totell you about that.

So, I follwed your last instructions and here is the new HJT log:

Hi cjosey,

So we didnt give you any conflicting information !!! Thats good otherwise you would have been in a quandry. ;) ;)



CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!! Your PC is clean :tazz:



I would recommend the following steps to keep your PC clean (especially Step 8 now that your PC is clean) –

PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR FUTURE

Operating System
1. Keep the Windows and Internet Explorer updated with the latest fixes. These fixes are available free from Microsoft. Click on Tools in the IE menu bar and then on Windows update. You can also use the following links

Windows security and critical updates
Internet Explorer security and critical updates

Also ensure that automatic updates are enabled for faster updation of the system.
(Right click on My Computer on your desktop, properties and Automatic Updates tab.


Anti-Virus Software
2. Keep your Anti-virus program updated with the latest definitions. Some of the common anti-virus programs in use are :

Norton Anti-Virus
McAfee Anti-Virus
AVG Anti-Virus --- freeware
Avast Home Edition --- freeware

Use only one anti-virus program as multiple such programs can create conflicts between themselves and severely hamper the performance of your PC.


Firewall
3. You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
Sygate Personal Firewall, Kerio Personal Firewall, ZoneAlarm


Internet Browsers
4. Have robust explorer settings. It is preferable to use an internet browser other that IE as most of the malware is targetted at IE. In case you prefer to use IE, then download a list of innocent looking but harmful websites from IE-Spyad and install it on ur PC. IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your internet explorer's restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't really innocent at all.

Some alternate browsers I suggest are Firefox Mozilla Browser and Opera

Ensure that Security level, irrespective of whichever browser you use, is set at Medium or higher, restrict the usage of cookies and activeX components.


Spyware Protection
5. Have a wall of protection against spyware / adware by installing SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs.
SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources.
SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation and browser hijack attempts. Both have free ongoing updates.


Spyware Removers
6. Install programs for scanning for malware and uninstalling them. Two of the best programs, both are freeware, are :

Spybot Search & Destroy - A powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.

AdAware SE Personal Edition - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.


Regular Maintenance of PC
7. Finally, invest some time for regular maintenance of your PC. Delete the temporary Internet files, temporary files, cookies etc. Click on Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run the program Disk Cleanup. Follow the instructions.

An alternate freeware software which can be used is CleanUp.

Keep your Registry clean. My favourite software is Registry First Aid. This is not a freeware but a trial version can be downloaded.


System Restore Points
8. Since your PC is currently clean, create a system restore point. A system restore would enable you to revert to the settings on the PC when the restore point was created. It is also a good idea to flush all earlier system restore points which may be containing infected files.

A. 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.

B. Restart your computer.

C. 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.

System Restore will now be active again.


Go ahead and enjoy a clean PC !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Tampabelle,

Thank you so much for your help. The computer is clean and good to go. I have put all the extra security and other protections in place, just like you suggested.

Geeks2Go has been invaluable to me in fighting off this malicious attack.

I am making a PayPal donation and I hope everyone else who gets help here does the same thing....because we have to do everthing possible to support this free service!

Thanks again!
