Hi,

My first time come here to ask help.

After fail to remove the evil viruses, I have just installed Norton Antivirus to fight with them. I have turned System restor to Off, disconnected with internet. In safe mode, I scan C: by Norton and it found wininet.dll with its name Bloodhound.w32.EP and said Repair failed. I then click the Quarantine button but it said Quarantine failed.
Restarted the window as normal mode and found Norton's Auto-protect is OFF, I tried to turn that to ON but it said Norton Antivirus has encountered an internal program error.... I then connected PC to internet and start to update Norton but PC was crashed!!
(It looks Norton can find something but was beat by the virus ?)

I know I also got
Access Members Area.exe short cut icon appears in desktop. don't know how to remove it, I just delete the short cut icon and don't know if the .exe is removed by other removers or not.
Shopping Wizard and Offer Optimizer in Add or Remove Programs window. If try to remove them, I will be linked to their site and asked to download an uninstall file. But the uninstall file cannot uninstall them!
And perhaps more.....

From hijackthis log file, my PC looks quite clean....

Thank you for reading the long story....Can you help?

Hi paper and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

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

1. If you haven't logged in go to Geeks to Go and do so. Then proceed to item a.

If you already have logged in, go directly to item a.

a. Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window.
b. In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
c. If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there

2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. Please TURN your SYSTEM RESTORE back on. We need backup in case of an emergency. Malware Fighting # 101

4. Please DELETE your current HJT program from its present location.

5. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!

A. Close ALL windows except HJT

B. SCAN with HJT and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')

C. POST the log in this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')


DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren

The first thing to do:

*We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time. DO NOT UPGRADE TO SP2 AT THIS TIME

*Click HEREfor the update.

*Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

Hi Trevuren,

Thank you for your reply....I can see the light in the dark night.

I started to do what you said. Forst thing stopped me is

>1. We want to stop, disable and delete an added service (023)
>To stop a service and set to 'disabled'
>.....
>Click Stop

But I cannot find 'Stop', I tried to click 'Start' and got error:

Could not start the smartFinder Uninstall service on Local Computer.
Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

Let's assume by what you said that, if you can see START in the upper left, that means that the service is already stopped. Then let's just proceed and attempt to disable it.

Your log looks good. If you have no more malware-related problems that you are aware of, just give me the OK and we can start the final but essential cleanup procedures.

Hi Trevuren,

Great, HijackThis passed....

I was checking the PC and found some problems (or not being problems):

1. Offer Optimizer and Shopping Wizard still in Add or Remove Programs window.
2. Need to reinstall Norton? It is not in the bottom bar and Excel said 'Some Norton Anrivirus components are missing'. (I haven't desided which one is better, Norton or Avast)
3. Cannot open Ad-Aware, it said 'The application failed to initialize properly...'
4. Most important, cannot link to interet, for example, cannot oppen www.google.com

1. DO NOT UNINSTALL THOSE PROGRAMS THROUGH ADD/REMOVE

2. Provide me with the full path of both programs and I will instruct you on how to do it without re-activating the infection.

C:\Program Files\.....

3. If you are going to NOT re-install Norton, I personnaly like Kaspersky. It is only an anti-virus, not a suite, but it is the workhorse of the AVs. NOD32 is a bit lighter in resources and also excellent. Zone Alarm Free is an excellent firewall. That is what I use.

4. UNINSTALL Ad-Aware and download and install, a new one. Don't forget to update the signatures and configure it as per the instructions in my signature pane at the bottom of the reply.

5. Can you go anywhere on the internet?

Trevuren,

I was tried to find the files for Offer Optimizer and Shopping Wizard, but how can I know their filenames?

So, your suggests are Kaspersky + Zone Alarm Free ?

I cannot visit any website in the internet even http://127.0.0.1/

1. What window were you looking in when you say those programs?

2. I am not allowed to endorse commercial products but I am telling you what I use and you know the places we have to go in this business. Draw your own conclusions.

3. Describe to me what happens when you try to get online.

4. Do a search for C:\Windows\System32\wininet.dll and tell me if it is there, in that specific folder.

5. How are you communicating with me?
