like a few others on here, ive been inflicted by this annoying psguard thing. ive run ad-aware and spybot search and destroy to no avail. afterwards i downloaded ewido and ive run it a couple times, both in and out of safe mode. its acutally helped quite a bit (i now have my original desktop image back, and the little red circle /w exclimation point in the system tray is no longer there). however, realize my system is still not free. when i reboot my computer, ps guard opens up on the desktop and starts doin whatever it is that it does...and my browser (...internet explorer...) is set to coolwebsearches.com or oneclicksearches or something. on occation, a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark appears in my system trey as well. id appreciate any help, this thing is really annoying lol.

here's my hijackthis log:

Welcome to GTG.

Let's help you remove this now :tazz:

Download smitRem.zip at http://noahdfear.gee.../click.php?id=1 and save the file to your desktop.
Unzip the file to it's own folder on the desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and read the Ewido setup instructions at http://rstones12.gee.../ewidosetup.htm. 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 the download and setup instructions at http://rstones12.gee...areSE_setup.htm. Otherwise, check for updates. Don't run it yet!

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intell32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe


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

Uninstall Viewpoint via the Add/Remove panel if listed.

Delete these if found:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\shnlog.exe
C:\WINDOWS\popuper.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msole32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\intmonp.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\intmon.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\hp6F34.tmp
C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msmsgs.exe
C:\Program Files\PSGuard\
C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe


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->Display->Desktop->Customize Desktop->Web-> Uncheck 'Security Info' if present.

Reboot back into Windows and go to http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm to 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 (if you ran it).

OK, do you know how to navigate through the folders in Windows? We usually don't go into that much detail in the instructions since most users who attemp to fix up these problem have some experience with Windows already :tazz: But if needed, we'll provide more info (see below).

For those files/folders, you have to delete manually. For example, most are located in c:\windows\system32\ folder. So all you have to do is go into My Computer->Local C: Drive->Windows->system32 and delete those files I listed.

Then there's Program Files folder. Go into My Computer->Local C: Drive->Program Files and delete those folders I listed (PSGuard & Viewpoint). Some may not exist - deleted already. If that's the case, just move on to the next one.

I hope that clear things up a little more.

Give me those new set of logs when everything is completed.

Let's try this again since there is still a trace of it left behind:

Download smitRem at http://noahdfear.gee.../click.php?id=1 and save the file to your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and read the Ewido setup instructions at http://rstones12.gee.../ewidosetup.htm. 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 the download and setup instructions at http://rstones12.gee...areSE_setup.htm. Otherwise, check for updates. Don't run it yet!

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intell32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe

Run the smitRem.exe file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on the 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->Display->Desktop->Customize Desktop->Web-> Uncheck 'Security Info' if present.

Reboot back into Windows and go to http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm to 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 (if you ran it).

Upload this file (C:\Documents and Settings\Michael Knight\rundll32.exe) to http://virusscan.jotti.org and report back what it found.

OK, did Panda come up clean though? Meaning, it didn't find anything? If so, you should be ok.

For that rundll32 file, try doing a search for it instead. It should be in the Michael Knight folder and not in the system32 folder - that one is legitimate. The one in the Michael Knight folder looks very suspicious. Try setting these options to see if you can find it more easily:

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

Man that file is sure getting to me. OK, I will ask you to see if it can be deleted this way:

Download KillBox http://www.greyknigh...spy/KillBox.exe. Run KillBox and check the box that says 'End Explorer Shell While Killing File'. Next click on 'Delete on Reboot'. Copy the below files and go back to KillBox. Go to File->Paste from Clipboard and then hit the button with a red circle and white X. Confirm to delete and when asked if you want to reboot, say no:

C:\Documents and Settings\Michael Knight\rundll32.exe

Restart and see if you have any problems. If KillBox can't find that file, then we'll leave it as that.

Download CleanUp! http://cleanup.stevengould.org/ (Alternate Link if main link don't work - http://www.greyknigh...spy/CleanUp.exe ) and install it. Run CleanUp! and click on the Options button. Uncheck 'Scan local drives for temporary files'. Also uncheck those two Newsgroup entries if you don't want to delete them. Click OK and then click on the CleanUp! button. Let it run. After it's done, choose Yes to logoff.

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Are there any problems now? If not, you should be set to go.
