hey,
I've got a few problems here:
1.) Every time I boot, Windows does a chkdisk on my C Drive (anime). It says it need to check for consitancy. The drive is under a year old and its a partition of a 200GB drive. I would die if I lost all my anime!
2.) I think I have a few different spywares (doesnt sound right) First one is like Select Cashback.exe. I'm Pretty sure thats spyware. Second is like Power Scan. It was like "we need to check for pornographic files on your computer..." I closed it but it was still running in my system processes. One other one, I ran Spybot and it says the same thing everytime....DSO Exploit (5x). I tell it to remove and its still there. It says its fixed though.
3.) On HiJack This....

Hello and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Kat, and I will be helping you! ;)

First let's start off and see what Ewido will find and remove for us! ;)

Please download ewido security suite it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install ewido security suite
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • 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
  • Then click on Start Update
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates

Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Reboot into SAFE MODE . Do this by repeatedly tapping the F8 key as the computer begins to boot up. You will be taken to a screen where you can use your keyboard "arrow" keys to move the cursor and highlight "Safe Mode", then click the "enter" button.
  • Once in Safe Mode, you are going to run Ewido as follows. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you do not "multi task" while Ewido runs. Please do not open/run ANYTHING else during the scan...this includes all files, programs, folders, games, etc. ONLY have Ewido running.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close ewido security suite.


After you have done this, please make a post here in this thread and give me a copy of the report from Ewido, along with a new HijackThis log! :tazz:

Hi Invartact! I see you looking at this now with me. I am analyzing the log now and getting instructions ready. However...we are in the middle of massive storms here, and I have lost power three times in the past half an hour. If I 'disappear'..that is why..and I will make my post as soon as I can! :tazz:

Hello again! The errors from Spybot with the DSO exploits are a "bug" within Spybot, and are nothing to worry about, I promise. I can't find the link right now that explains it, but I will look for it afterwhile if you wish to read more about it.

The log is looking much better. Only a bit to take care of now! :tazz:

Open HijackThis and scan for a log. Place a check next to the following entry:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [gb00oq2d] E:\WINDOWS\system32\gb00oq2d.exe

Now, with all other windows and programs closed, click "Fix Selected" and then close HijackThis.

Be sure you can view hidden files and folders:

· Click Start.
· Open My Computer.
· Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
· Select the View Tab.
· Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
· Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
· Click Yes to confirm.
· Click OK.

Reboot into Safe Mode and locate the following file and delete it:

E:\WINDOWS\system32\gb00oq2d.exe


Reboot normally, and post a fresh HijackThis log for review...and let me know how things are running ;)

Is everything running ok now??


Congratulations! Your log is now clean! :tazz:

Here are some items that you will want to add to your to-do list:

These are some tips to reduce the potential for Spyware/Adware/Virus infection in the future:
I would strongly recommend reviewing and installing the following applications if you dont currently have them running on your system:

Use Anti-Virus Software
It is very important that your computer has Anti-Virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.
See this link for a listing of some online and stand-alone Anti-Virus programs:
Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

Update your AntiVirus Software
It is imperitive that you update your Anti-Virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your Anti-Virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

Use a Firewall
I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
Understanding and Using Firewalls

Spyware/Adware Detection and Removal Programs:
Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and DialersAd-Aware SEIf you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to setup and use Ad-Aware SE
How to use Ad-Aware SE to remove Spyware
[/list]Spybot S&DIf you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to setup and use Spybot S&D
How to use Spybot to remove Spyware
[/list]I strongly recommend using both of these programs to catch most spyware/adware

Prevention Programs:
  • SpywareBlaster -- SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • SpywareGuard -- SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/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.
Other Necessary Programs:
  • A More Secure Browser
    Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser.
    There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend using Firefox
Be sure to also keep up with Windows and IE updates.

Windows Security and Critical Updates
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

Internet Explorer Security and Critical Updates
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp

And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place?

Update all these Programs Regularly:Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released. Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
