Hi.
Im aware that my computer has recently been attacked by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smit.fraud.c and i've come up against the problem that it has incapacitated explorer.exe. Each time I try to boot up windows even in safe mode, the error '(0xc0000005) explorer.exe failed to initialise' comes up.
I have limited access to some progress via the task manager but I cant get HJT to run, is there any way y'all can help?

Many thanks, Myles.

Welcome cubemb to Geeks to Go!

We'll need to transport some files from the computer you are now using, to your infected computer.

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.
So you'll get a new folder called smitrem on your desktop.
I want you to put that folder on cd, floppy or usb-stick.

On your infected computer, boot again in safe mode and open your task manager again.
Now insert the cd, floppy or usb-stick where you saved the smitrem folder in your infected computer.

In your Task Manager, click 'applications' (first tab).
Click the New Task button.
Cick browse.

Now browse to the drive where your floppy, usb-stick or cd is present (could be A or D or E or F.. you'll see..)
Search for that smitrem folder.
Right click on the smitrem folder and choose: Copy

Now browse again via Task Manager to My Documents or Program Files.
Right click somewhere in there, right click and choose: Paste
Now open the smitrem folder you just copied and pasted and click the file: RunThis.bat
Then click open.
In the window where it says 'Create new task', click OK.

Normally, you'll have to drag the different windows you'll see to left or to right, because normally they will open on top of each other and you wont see the command window the tool starts that is under it.
You'll see a blue window now.
Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete.

When done, in Task Manager, click 'shut down' from the menu on top and click restart. Your computer will reboot now.
Reboot to normal mode and post a hijackthis log in your next reply.

Hey there! Thank you so much for the response.
I've followed the steps provided and came to the final element of the smit removal tool, however it doenst initialise the checkdisk facility and when I try to run it through task manager 'Cleanmgr.exe' it doesnt respond.
Also I cant get my comp to start up in safe mode. i press F8 repeatedly in the startup process but it seems to bypass and go straight to the windows environment.
After replacing WININET.dll explorer seems to work (to an extent) but it comes and goes repeatedly. It still wont let me run HJT either. Im continuing to try different methods but I keep hitting brick walls :tazz:
Is there anything you can recommend to address this issue?
Thank you, Myles

You must have more than 'just' smitfraud there.

I'll get back to you.

Thanks.
I've managed to get it to boot in safe mode using msconfig. however explorer.exe keeps restarting itself, and everytime this occurs, every window and operation i've started in the few seconds closes and the safe mode message appears. Just thought I'd give you the whole picture, if that helps any.

I'm so sorry cubemb. You kind of got out of sight :tazz:

If the problem is still there, please do this.

On your clean computer:
Download FixO by Miekiemoes and unzip it to a transport disk.
Make sure all the files remain in the unzipped folder.

On the infected computer.
Use taskmanager to go to the transport disk.
Copy the folder.
Go to c:
Paste the folder.
Inside that folder, click FixO.bat and run it.
When it's finished, press a button and notepad will open with some txt in it.
Copy and paste the content of it in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.

If nothing happends, reboot the computer and let me know if it started responding again after the reboot.

Nothing in the HijackThis log. How is the computer running now?

I'll give you a smitrem advise, please let me know if you can run it.

Please read these instructions carefully. You may want to print them. Copy the text to a Notepad file and save it to your desktop! We will need the file later.
Be sure to follow ALL instructions!



Download SmitRem
your desktop.
The tool has been updated, please download the latest version.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

***

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

***

Please download the trial version of ewido security suite.Install ewido security suite
When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".

Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
The program will prompt you to update click the OK button

The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.On the left hand side of the main screen click update
Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed, close Ewido for now.

***

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, please download and install AdAware SE 1.06.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

***

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:
http://www.pchell.co.../safemode.shtml

***

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.
Post me the contents of the smitfiles.txt log as you post back.

***

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

***

Now open Ewido Security Suite:* 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 the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
* Save the report to your desktop
Reboot your computer.

***

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

***

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 me know if any problems persist.

I will be back tomorrow evening (my time). I'll try to check in earlier (at work).

Good luck and sleep tight.



EDIT:
As there has been no reply from the original poster for more than two weeks this topic is now closed.

If you are the original poster and still need assistance, please send me a PM.
