:tazz:

Hello,

I am in desperate need of some help. I have followed instructions to get to this point, but I am having issues completely getting rid of PSGuard, and it's associated issues. I keep getting a notification from Norton, saying a virus has infected my computer, called W32.desktophijack, on the file C:/WINDOWS/system32/wininet.dll. I keep getting rid of PSGuard and intel32.exe using HJT, but I managed to catch my computer in a slow moment installing the application. Where could it possibly be coming from? I've cleaned and scanned and cleaned and scanned, and basically wasted all of today fighting this aggrevating enemy. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Here is my HJT file: (I did manage to get rid of all those annoying O4 app's, but there is more to the problem I think)

Hi themetallurgist, welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

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

Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intell32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PSGuard spyware remover] C:\Program Files\PSGuard\PSGuard.exe


Using Windows Explorer, please locate and DELETE the following files/folders (with all their content), if they are still present:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe


Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Run Ewido:
  • 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.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!
Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

Let me know if any problems persist.

Regards,

Trevuren

Hi Truveren,

Thank you for giving your time to help me. I followed your instructions to the letter, however, the problem still persists. As I said in my previous posting, the computer is still re-installing the PSGuard, and it is still coming up with the Norton error, associated with the wininet.dll file.

I did notice, that on my C drive, two .txt files have been created (I am pretty sure by the virus) called PollSt.txt, and Pollog.txt. They contain the following jibberish:

Pollog.txt:

-07:29:08:975-0x000001c4...Loading instance 0x400000, ThreadID = 0x1c4

PollSt.txt:

-07:29:08:664-0x000001c4...CNTService::SetStatus(1332408, 4)
-07:29:08:664-0x000001c4...Leaving CNTService::Initialize()

Further to this, I have now found that the PSGaurd has stopped re-installing itself, however, I continue to get the message from Norton that I have a virus called W32.Desktophijack on object C:\\Windows\System32\Wininet.dll. Norton is unable to repair the file, and access to the file is denied. Am I able to delete this file to stop the message appearing? OR is there a way to stop the message appearing?

Thanks, I'm getting there, and slowly regaining my sanity

1. We will first remove the remnants of PSGuard, then deal with wininet.dll This is not are.


2. Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intell32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PSGuard spyware remover] C:\Program Files\PSGuard\PSGuard.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Function Palette.lnk = C:\Program Files\RDS\PLTBar.exe




Using Windows Explorer, please locate and DELETE the following files/folders (with all their content), if they are still present:

C:\Program Files\RDS<===Folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe
C:\Program Files\PSGuard<===Folder


Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Run Ewido:

  • 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.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!

Hi Trevuren,

Thanks again for your help, but things seem to be going round in circles. When I turned on my computer this morning, the Norton Virus Warning continued to pop up and aggrevate me, however, the PSGaurd did not install itself. I did follow your instructions, but when I did the Ad-aware scan, that seemed to "kick up some dust" and then PSGaurd re-emerged with it's issues. In this post I'll also include the report from Ad-aware to give you an idea of where the Mal-files detected by Ad-aware are coming from.

I have also noticed there are a few new folders in my windows registry that have strange names, and I am wondering if they have something to do with the issues. They have names like $NTUninstallKB901214$ or $hf_mig$ or AU_log, and they have creation dates in the last few days I have had these issues. That's about all I've noticed that is new since these issues.

But first, the logs you requested:

1. Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop. There may be an update out.

2. Update Ewido's definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

3. Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
4. Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

5. The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


6. Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


7. Run Ewido:
  • 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.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

8. Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

9. Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!

10. Save the Activescan log and post it along with the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log and post them into your next reply.

Let me know if any problems persist.

Regards,

Trevuren

Hi Trevuren,

I am sorry, but I forgot to add those files to the last post :tazz:

I just completed your steps again, however Pandascan found no traces of virus.

The same symptons still exist.....

Any other Ideas?

That smitrem log is incomplete. It is missing the most important part of the info.

Would you please redo the Smitrem part in Safe Mode. You can forget about redoing the scans. Don't forget to post the full log
Thanks

Hi Trevuren,

Things seem a bit better now. Smitrem worked differently this time, and repaired the ailed wininet.dll file in system32. The computer seems to be back to normal, albeit a little slow at getting going. What is your diagnosis?


Below is the log of Smitrem:

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.

Ad-aware has picked up the mal-ware problems, like I said in an earlier posting. All of the problems say there is nothing there, but as soon as I run Ad-aware, it "kicks up the dust" and the PSGuard awakens. Any thoughts?
