IE Popup Issue (dial.exe?) [RESOLVED]

When I log in to Windows, during startup, IE opens (without help from me) and tries to surf to http://210.112.166.7/f1re.html.

After some scanning and investigating, it looks like I have dial.exe (and perhaps others). I used HJT to "remove" it, booted into safe mode, removed the file c:\dial.exe. The IE popup still happened and dial.exe reappeared.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below are the results of my HJT scan.

Thanks,

Jeff

Hi jricks and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

I can see that you have some malware issues. This maybe a few step process in removing it. I encourage you to stick with it and follow my directions as closely as possible so as to avoid complicating the problem further.

the first thing I need you to do is reneable anythign that you might have stopped in msconfig. I need to see a compete log and disabling things in MSconfig just hides them, does not fix them.

After that is done, please post a fresh HiJackthis log and we will start getting your computer fixed up ;)


Thanks,

:tazz:

hi jricks,

I can see that you have some malware issues. This maybe a few step process in removing it. I encourage you to stick with it and follow my directions as closely as possible so as to avoid complicating the problem further.

I noticed that your HiJackthis.exe is located on your desktop, make sure to save HijackThis in its own folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This is very important, so HiJackThis can save backups!

Right click on the Microsoft/Giant AntiSpyware icon (looks like a target) and click on Security Agents Status (Enabled) and click on Disable Real-time Protection. To re enable it after the fix, you follow the same steps but click on Enable Real-time Protection.




DOWNLOAD PROGRAMS


Download and install CleanUp! Here*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.
We will use this program later.

Download CWShredder here to its own folder.

Update CWShredder
  • Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
  • Click Check For Update
  • Close CWShredder
We will be using this program later.


THE FIX


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.

1. Click this link to be sure you can view hidden files.

2. Ensure you are NOT connected to the internet.

3. Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

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

5. Close all browsers, windows and unneeded programs.

6. Open HiJack and do a scan.

7. Put a Check next to the following items:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = about:blank
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = about:blank
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [itunes] C:\dial.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ProSiteFinder] C:\Program Files\ProSiteFinder\prositefinder.exe


8. click the Fix Checked box

9. Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel(if present):

180Solutions

10. Please remove the following folders using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\Program Files\ProSiteFinder

11. Please remove just the files from the following paths using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\dial.exe

12. Run the program CleanUp!

13. Reboot into normal mode and please run this online virus scan: ActiveScan - Save the results from the scan!

14. Please go here and upload

C:\WINDOWS\taskbar.exe

then please post the results in your next reply.

15. Please post the Active scan log and a fresh HiJackThis log. Let me know how your computer is running.

Ok, did the steps you outlined. Attached a new HJT log and the results of the ActiveScan. FYI, there was no 180Solutions in the Add/Remove Programs and there was no c:\windows\taskbar.exe. The IE popup issue still exists.

My friend (the one who helped infect my machine) took his machine to his IT folks and they ran AIMFix and it got rid of the problem. So I tried it on my machine and now the IE popup at startup isn't happening anymore. Can you take a look at this HJT log to see if I've still got any issues?

Thanks.

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast
AntiVir


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4
Spywareguard
IE/Spyad

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)

Sygate
Kerio
ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox
Opera

If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided. Also read How I got Infected
