Hi zanda and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

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

1. Go to Geeks to Go
. Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window. (make sure you have signed in first)
. In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
. 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. Your system still has multiple hijacks and infections.

4. Did you set the Restrictions on the use of the Control Panel as seen by the 06 entry in your HJT log? (If not, I will fix it)

5. Do you know that you have a IP address in your Trusted Zone that comes from a city in Russia? (If not, I will fix it)

6. Please download Fix_Protocol_zones_ranges.reg by Nellie from MWR
  • Open the zip file and extract the regfile to your desktop.
  • Double click Fix_Protocol_zones_ranges.reg and allow it to merge with the registry
7. REBOOT your system.

8. Finally, run HijackThis , click SCAN, produce a LOG and POST it in this thread for review.

Regards,

Trevuren

Thanks for your help Trevuren, much appreciated

I've done step 1,2,5,6,7,8 and to answer 4, No I didn't setup the restriction for control panel so any help would b great to fix this. For step 5 I went into IE and removed the IP address from the trusted sites zone so hopefully it fixed that but it could be in the registry I guess and Hijackthis will show you.

Here's the latest log from Hijack this

I need to disable your Microsoft AntiSpyware Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes.
  • Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  • Click on Options, Settings.
  • In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
  • Under Startup Options uncheck: Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).

  • After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  • Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Now, Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

  • Now with all the items selected, and all windows closed except for HJT, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window.

  • Reboot Your System in Safe Mode

    How to use the F8 method to Start Your Computer in Safe Mode
    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
    • Press Enter.
  • Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and DELETE them (if they are present):

    c:\ied_s7.cab
    c:\x.cab
    c:\eied_s7.cab
    c:\ex.cab
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\vbsys2.dll

  • Exit Explorer. and REBOOT BACK INTO NORMAL MODE

  • Before doing this write down all the settings, Note that not all system/setups even have these settings, While some connection service's will require them
    • These instruction's are basicly for home users.
    • In the windows control panel. If you are using Windows XP's Category View, select the Network and Internet Connections category otherwise double click on Network Connections. Then right click on your default connection, usually local area connection for cable and dsl, and left click on properties. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS servers automatically
    • Press OK twice to get out of the properties screen and reboot if it asks.
      That option might not be avaiable one some systems
    • Next Go start run type cmd and hit OK
    • type
      ipconfig /flushdns
      then hit enter, type exit hit enter
      (that space between g and / is needed)
  • Now run HJT, SCAN , and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everything looks now.

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1. Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
2. Left click on "System Restore Tab"
3. Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
4. Left click on "Apply"

TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
1.Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
2.Click on "Apply"

2. Cleanup the leftovers. Download CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.


3. Finally, Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.


Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

Make sure you keep your Windows OS current by visiting Windows update
regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. With out these you are leaving the backdoor open.

I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • 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.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My Favorite)

Regards,

Trevuren

Excellent, Thanks very much for your help it's greatly appreciated. If it was my pc the old format would of been done straight away :tazz:

Just a quick question, when windows first boots up it does take a little while for programs to load and takes a bit before you can start opening things, any ideas as to why ?

Edit: Even when it boots sometimes the system hangs for a bit and the only way I've been able to get around this is by ctrl+alt+del and ending the task on explorer and re-running it again which then kicks it into gear

It is usually do to the number of processes being loaded. Anti-malware are notorious for slowing down both startups and shutdowns.
