I'm hoping you can help me.

I have been afflicted with many forms of malware - the most painful was Aurora. I ran the tools that you recommended and they seemed to work (at least to get rid of Aurora). However, now my computer is running painfully slow. Would you mind checking my hijackthis log to see if I can clean-up my computer any further. Here is what I did...

I downloaded and ran:

1. Cleanup
2. Ad-Aware SE
3. CW-Shredder
4. Spybot S&D
5. Ewindo Security Suite

I also run Checkit86 to block spam (or at least attempt to) and I'm not sure what is all is running on Microsoft XP (I have disabled instant messaging). I also run the latest version of McAfee virus protection (not using their spam protector). I disabled Ewindo Guard because I thought it might be slowing down my pc - did not help.

I try to run a pretty tight ship --- I only use my computer for word processing, email and listenting to music. I would like to remove anything that is not absolutely necessary on my pc.

Do you have any suggestions? -- I would greatly appreciate your help!

Thanks so much -

I am so sorry - I didn't even think about it. I just re-ran highjack this -- here is the log.

I am still having problems -- WinFixer 2005 keeps installing itself and running on my computer - even though I have uninstalled it several times. Also, I keep getting shortcuts to various websites posted on my desktop. I keep deleting them and different ones come back.

I am so frustrated and sick of re-running all the cleaning tools.

Thanks so much for your help!!!!

Please print out these instructions or copy them into a text file on your Desktop for easy access.

During the fix, u will be asked to fix some entries, delete some files or uninstall some programs. If in case, you do not see those entries / files / programs, please make a note of it. Continue with the fix and in your next post please inform me of all deviations from the fix prescribed.

1. Download Programs

Please download these programs and save them in a new folder on your desktop -

CleanUp
Ewido Security Suite

Install Ewido, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

Unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.

Restart the PC in Safe Mode (repeatedly tap the F8 key when the PC is starting up).

2. Remove Infections

Please double-click on Nailfix.cmd. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

I followed all of the instructions...

Couple of new questions:
1. My computer is now loading my Lexmark print driver twice at start-up. In the "start-up" menus, it only looks like it should be loading once? Any suggestions.
2. Also, my checkit86 is loading twice as well.
3. Computer still a bit slow - any suggestions?

I can't thank you enough --- Here is my latest highjackthislog:

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

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - Startup: CheckIt 86.lnk = C:\Program Files\CheckIt\86\CheckIt86.exe
O4 - Startup: LEX125SU.exe.lnk = C:\Program Files\Lexmark X125\LEX125SU.exe
O4 - Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE



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

Reboot the PC and post a fresh HJT log. Make sure the Word Wrap under format in Notepad is not checked. I have to first format your HJT logs in Notepad and then analyze them

Thanks so much for your help.

Everything seems to be running ok. My computer is still running slower than it did - perhaps it is because I have Ewindo Security Guard running. However, maybe I'm just being greedy.

Thanks -

Hi Fletch11,

Unfortunately you have downloaded the trial version of Ewido. It means that certain features of the product will not be available after the trial period gets over. One of the key features not available would be automatic updates on the signature files. This means that you will have to update the signature files before you scan your PC.


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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
