Hello and welcome!

Please print these instructions out, or write them down, as you can't read them during the fix. Be sure to follow every step.. Also make sure to ask any questions you might have before proceeding the fix.


Please download Ewido Security Suite it is a free version of the program.
  • Install Ewido Security Suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
  • Launch Ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will now open to the main screen.
  • When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!" Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • 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.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
  • Exit ewido. DO NOT run a scan yet.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido.
Ewido manual updates

Download CCleaner and install it, but do not run it yet.

Please download this file: Revised Installer for the Nailfix Utility
Save it to your desktop.
DO NOT run it yet.

To reboot into Safe Mode with Windows XP, you can follow these steps from Microsoft;

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.

Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on Nailfix.exe.
Click "Next" in the setup, then make sure "Run Nailfix" is checked and click "Finish".
Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Now open Ewido and do a scan of your system.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE; During some scans with Ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**
    • 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 as the action.
  • 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 or a location where you can find it easily.
Now run HijackThis, click Scan, check the following objects for removal;

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [rabegyw] c:\windows\system32\nqahgs.exe r

Close any other open windows and/or open browsers, making sure that only HiJackThis is running at that time. Make sure that the above mentioned objects are all checked, then hit "Fix Checked". Exit HJT.
NOTE; The 04 entry may have changed names since you rebooted after posting the log; look for an entry with a similar format, that will always in in a single letter r.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following file and delete if present;
c:\windows\system32\nqahgs.exe (It must be named as the 04 when fixed in HJT.)

Now run CCleaner.
  • Uncheck "Cookies" under "Internet Explorer".
  • If running Firefox: click on the "Applications" tab and uncheck "Cookies" under "Firefox".
  • Click on Run Cleaner in the lower right-hand corner. This can take quite a while to run.
Please run a new scan with HiJackThis and post the fresh log here along with the log from Ewido, using Add Reply.

Thanks. I think the nailfix was what i needed to kill the respawning processes.
Everything seems to be better now.

Thank you!

I'd still like to see those logs to check out if your PC is clean or if there is still something. ;)
