Recently infected with the "ABI Network/Aurora" problem. I went through and performed all the tasks on the instruction page provided. Everything worked well, but had one virus that was identified by Trend Housecall that could not be deleted because it was in use (I ran Norton last night and it spotted one it couldnt delete, but I think I quarentined it. The file location and name is C:\windows\system32\szqyfl.exe. I have attached the hijack log file I just ran. Any help would be apprieciated.

Thanks

Hello Adman and welcome to Geeks to Go

As an introduction, please note that I am not Superhuman, I do not know everything, but what I do know has taken me years to learn. I am happy to pass on this information to you, but please bear in mind that I am also fallible.

Please note that you should have Administrator rights to perform the fixes. Also note that multiple identity PCís (family PCís) present a different problem; please tell me if your PC has more than one individualís setting.

Before we get underway, you may wish to print these instructions for easy reference during the fix, although please be aware that many of the required URLs are hyperlinks in the red names shown on your screen. Part of the fix may require you to be in Safe Mode, which may not allow you to access the internet, or my instructions!

That is some log! You have quite a mixture of malware and Trojans that need to be eradicated; probably quite a shock when you think itís just a Trojan. Letís see what we can do with the first sweep.

I note that you are running HijackThis from Desktop; please create a new folder for it (for example C:\Program Files\Hijackthis\Hijackthis.exe) and move the programme into it. It is very important you do this before anything else since backup files can be deleted if they are not within their own folder!

Firstly could you please disable AOL Spyware Protection from running during the fix, it may just hinder our attempts to change anything. I am not familiar with the programme, but there is normally a setting within the programme for this.

To start please download the following programmes, we will run them later. Please save them to a place that you will remember, I suggest the Desktop:

Killbox by Option^Explicit
CCleaner
Ewido Security Suite
Revised Nailfix Utility
Spybot S&D

Please install Spybot search & destroy, open it, update it, immunize it, and perform a scan. When it has completed, ensure that you check everything it finds coloured Red only before clicking Fix Selected Problems. If Spybot requests starting again at reboot to clear memory resident malware, please ensure you click YES, giving it permission to do so.
Go to Start>Run and type Services.msc then hit OK
Scroll down and find this service:

System Startup Service (SvcProc)

When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on Properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then OK.

Run HiJackThis. Click on None of the above, just start the program. Now, click on the Config button (bottom right), then click on Misc Tools, then click on Delete an NT Service a window will pop up. Enter this item into that field (copy and paste):

SvcProc

Click OK.

It should pull up information about the service, when it asks if you want to reboot now click YES

Install Ewido Security Suite it is a free version of the programme.
  • Install Ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
    • 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")
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates
Do NOT run a scan yet.

Please install Revised Nailfix Utility , unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.

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.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:

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.

[*]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.

Now that the updates have been installed do the following:
  • 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.
  • 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 and include it in your reply.
Now close Ewido security suite.

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel (if present):(click Start>Settings>Control Panel)

SurfSideKick
Viewpoint
WeirdOnTheWeb

Please notify me of any other programmes that you donít recognise in that list in your next response

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Please delete these folders (if present) using Windows Explorer:

C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3\
C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\
C:\Program Files\WeirdOnTheWeb\

Close Windows Explorer

Please install Killbox by Option^Explicit.

*Extract the programme to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the programme.
*In the Killbox programme, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*Open the text file with these instructions in it, and copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

c:\windows\system32\szgyfl.exe
C:\WINDOWS\dinst.exe
C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
ALCXMNTR.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\System32\lh0sv0bf.exe
C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe
C:\Program Files\Updates from HP\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe


*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".

*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "Yes" at the reboot now prompt..

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.

Now we must hide the files we revealed earlier by reversing the process, this is an important safeguard to stop important system files being deleted by accident.

There is almost certainly bound to be some junk (leftover bits and pieces) on your system that is doing nothing but taking up space. I would recommend that you run CCleaner. Install it, update it, check the default setting in the left-hand pane, Analyze, Run Cleaner. You may be fairly surprised by how much it finds. Also click Issues then Scan for issues Ė fix selected issues

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and I will take another look.

Phil,
Thanks for trying to help, I am the only user and I have admin rights. I'm on page three and ran into an issue. I went to services.msc, but I dont finda SvcProc file. I looked at the descriptions of the services and didnt find anything that resembled the above file.

Thanks.

After going to run, typing in Services.msc and hitting enter, this is the order of the service:

In Windows XP, you should check both tabs, standard and extended. You are looking for System Startup Service. The abbreviated filename in parenthesis (SvcProc) will be in HijackThis.

If you can't carry out this part of the fix, please move on to the rest.

Phil--
I did end up finding the svcproc file. Everything appears to have worked but I have'nt spent much time with my browser, so I'm sure I'll find out in the morning if the issues are gone. I did find "The ABI Network" program icon when I deleted the other entries from the add/remove programs list. I tried to delete it and it opened the browser, which I quickly shut down before it had time to load-please advise on what to do about that. I have attached another log and I thank you for all the help.

Hello again Adman

Your HJT log is not hugely different from the last one in terms of infection. Generally speaking, this is caused by an application protecting your registry settings. I can see that you have disabled the AOL Spyware, so looking at your log it must be Norton AntiVirus Auto Protect Service. Please disable that for the period of the fix.

I note that you are still running HijackThis from Desktop; please create a new folder for it (for example C:\Program Files\Hijackthis\Hijackthis.exe) and move the programme into it. It is very important you do this before anything else since backup files can be deleted if they are not within their own folder! And if I make an error, there wonít be any backup files to restore to.

Install Ewido Security Suite it is a free version of the programme.
  • Install Ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
