I haven't been able to get rid of the UNMC process. The file itself I have found in the Windows\Fonts directory. I did a full Norton 2004 pro scan, in safe mode and normal; this did nothing. I also used Adaware SE and McAfee's Stinger program in Safe mode; both didn't help. Norton detected the file and CMNU.ini as the Virtumonde adware, but it didnt get rid of anything. Finally, when I try to delete the values relating to UNMC.exe in the registry, they just come right back up. Help if you can please :(

That version of Hijack This is in a difficult format to read and I think it's an old version. Read the Hijack This forum preliminary instructions and download the latest version of Hijack This and post a new log. <_<

Ok, got the version that was linked to from this site. I believe it's the latest.

I restarted the computer in safe mode, under the administrator user account, and managed to delete the unmc.exe file from fonts, and erase it from the registry. This didn't resolve the Norton 2004 issue of detecting cnmu.dat as AdWare. Just checking to see if any other problems can be picked up by you guys.

Thanks, I found cmnu.dat in several places in the registry. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{02F96FB7-8AF6-439B-B7BA-2F952F9E4800}\InprocServer32 had it followed by a key named "Threading Model" with the setting as Apartment. I also found and deleted a few more registry keys that contained unmc.exe Here is my actual log file from HJT.

Editing your registry can be very damaging. Please back up your registry before making any changes.

Uninstall ISearch Toolbar in the Add/Remove Programs

Run adaware again and clean out your temp files and post a new log.

You have another problem that is more difficult to remove and will get back with you on how to fix that.

Ran CWSShredder, didn't detect CoolwebSearch. As for ISearch Toolbar, that wasn't in my add/remove programs list. I ran adaware again and it detected Virtumundo Malware at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT:atlevents. Here is a new HijackThis Log in any case.

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.


R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565} - (no file)

O2 - BHO: CATLEvents Object - {02F96FB7-8AF6-439B-B7BA-2F952F9E4800} - C:\DOCUME~1\Don\LOCALS~1\Temp\cmnu.dat

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565} - (no file)

Reboot...while in Safe Mode (making sure that you are able to view hidden files) Navigate to and DELETE the following if they remain:

C:\DOCUME~1\Don\LOCALS~1\Temp\cmnu.dat

THEN:
Use Windows Explorer to run a search of your computer for:

cmnu

and DELETE the files. (We especially want to get rid of waveun.ini & waveun.dat & waveun.bak AND cnmu.ini & cmnu.dat & cnmu.bak + any other related files.) It is important that you be thorough with this search. These files like to hide all over your computer and have a nasty habit of resurrecting themselves if you do not get them ALL.

NEXT:
Run CCleaner

http://www.majorgeek...wnload4191.html

and Spybot S&D and have Spybot fix what it finds.

Then , as an added precaution, Go to Start > Run and type: cleanmgr. Make sure the boxes for these are checked:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

And Click OK.

Reboot to Normal Windows and Attach a fresh HJT log

What tip are you talking about? This is a difficult fix and if something helped you out, please let us know so future users who have this malware can benefit.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
