Illegal shortcuts and randomly exe files

Hi,

I've had some problem with illegal shortcuts on my desktop as internet shortcuts to different gambling zones etc. Each time I run 'procexp.exe' to manually remove some handles linked to the process ('iexplore.exe') and then kill the process itself. There are always 2 'iexplore.exe' that runs by the way. After this I can delete a folder that's been added without my permission called 'dvd 64 book lies dumb' that includes a system file and a .exe file with a random name. The folder places itself in c:\documents and settings\all users\applicatopn data\. I also delete a folder with a different name in c:\documents and settings\per\application data\ including a exe file that gets the same name each time this happens 'multi~noun.exe'. Finally I reboot.
Still, once in a while (sometimes several times a day) this problem comes back.
I'm desperate in getting help on how to get rid of this hijack once and for all.

I also add my latest hijack this log below. The log was generated AFTER doing the things described above.

All the best,
Per

Scan with Hijack This and check the boxes next to the following entries. Then click "Fix Checked"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Cool aim date team] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\dvd 64 cool aim\ActiveBrowse.exe
O16 - DPF: {15AD4789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - http://public.windup...f46b8ac2d5414a6

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\dvd 64 cool aim
Try to uninstall it from "Control Panel", "Add/Remove Programs" first (if it is in there) then delete the folder in bold. If it is not in add/remove programs delete the folder anyway.

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:
http://www.moosoft.com/

Please post a new hijack log with any new information on your system.

Well if you don't know what these 2 websites are then use hijack this to remove these entries. Other than that you are clean! <_<

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://login1.telia.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,Default_Search_URL = http://minisearch.startnow.com

Reboot the computer.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :D

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D

Ok, it's done. Thx again :D
Just for the record, I also downloaded the Ad-Aware program and had it scan my HD. It found 56!!! "threats" that I also removed.
Now I haven't felt this clean ever before <_<

Best,

Make sure you check for updates at least once a week for Spyware Blaster, Spybot, and AdAware and scan with them at least once a week too. Well spyware blaster doesn't have a scan, but you still need to update it.

Hi Jonny!

First, Sex Pistols "Never Mind The Bullocks" is one of my all-time-favorites <_<

Ok, I'll try to remember to do exactly that.
Another problem has occured. I can't do any windows update anymore. There is a fault each time I try do search for new updates. Been trying "the self solution thing" at win updates but without any luck.
Also, I followed your advice from yesterday and tried to install JVM from Sun but that didn't work either.
Any ideas on this, or should turn to another forum with these questions?

Thanks, Per
