hi a couple of days ago i became infected with spy sheriff.
I followed your instructions and ran all of the recomened downloads.
however i hav'nt been able to run the windows update as it does'nt support my
browsr anymore. anyway after running the downloads i was able to delete
spy sheriff from the control panel which i could not do before.
after i did this i was left with a white desktop background
which i cannot delete and wininet.dll has been deleted. As soon as
i logon now i get this message telling me that wininet.dll is not present and
i cannot use internet explorer either beacuse i have an invalid syntax error. at
the moment i am having to use this on line dating pop up link which connects me
to netscape.

here is my hjt scan;

Hi el [bleep]os, welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your problem.

1. You have a lot of problems on your machine just by viewing your log.

2. Before trying to get you out of this mess, I need you to answer a few questions for me.

a. Do you have a Start button on your Desktop and if you do, can you click Start>>Search and the Windows Search function appears?

b. Can you rightclick on START, then left click on Explorer which would bring up Windows Explorer?


Regards,

Trevuren

Go to your search function and do a complete system search for "wininet.dll" and post the results back into this thread.

OK. This is what we are going to do.

We can't be sure that those copies are not infected but at this point, the question is irrelevant because the important thing is to get on the net. Then we will worry about getting it clean.

1. Copy (Not CUT), copy the wininet.dll from here:

Wininet.dll C:/wininet 570 KB Application extension 8/17/2001

2. Paste into your F:\Windows\System32\ folder.

3. Then Reboot.

4. Try your internet and please get back to me.

5. Also please tell me what is on your different drives. Is your Operating System on one and Data on another. Are they partitions?

I am not asking you to delete it. I am asking you to make a copy of anyone you can find and paste it into your F:\Windows\System32\ Folder

Take your time, you can do it.

1. Good, you now know where the system32 folder is.

2. When you click on it, you will see a lot of folders and other files in the righthand side of the window. That is noemal.

3. Just paste that copy of wininet.dll anywhere in the righthand pane of the window. Do not create a new folder. Just paste it to a blank area.

I will try and upload a picture of the right hand side pane of my system32 folder
