Hello,

Recently I booted up my pc, logged into my profile and when it was loading programs a dos window popped up and disappeared then a blank window popped up with (titled) cmd.hta. Now I cannot retrieve NAV updates, it just hangs on 'initialising'. Action I have taken.. well tried! :

1. Ran full virus scan - come up with nothing
2. Tried running Adaware - said it encountered a problem and needed to close
3. Went to Trendmicro - scan picked up nothing but Hijacker option said this:

We found some issues, that you should be aware of. Though your files and system itself seem to be safe from hackers, your machine provides information about itself and/or publishes web-content.

Open/Closed ports on your machine:
Open ports: 53, 80, 22
Closed ports:
Not responding ports: 5900-5910, 3128, 500, 8080, 445, 12345, 113, 54320, 443, 8787, 139, 110, 79, 25, 23, 119, 135, 21, 138, 137, 143

4. Ran a program called Spyware Doctor (I forgot I had this) after getting latest def file which said this:

ISTbar
Infection risk level: High
Infection description: ISTbar is a Trojan downloader which will download additional malware components including but not limited to Internet Optimizer and Bargain Buddy. Servers which ISTbar will contact to download malware include: ysbweb.com, sidefind.com, download.bargain-buddy.net, slotch.com and more. In addition to being a Trojan it is also an Internet Explorer BHO installed as a toolbar.

CnsMin
Infection risk level: Medium
Infection description: CnsMin is another keyword-lookup provider that takes over the search feature of IE's address bar. It is aimed at providing keywords using Chinese characters.

Other than replacing the IE search feature with a Chinese site likely to be incomprehensible to non-Chinese users, CnsMin is not overtly harmful, but it uses extremely anti-social methods to make it difficult to uninstall. Is installed by ActiveX drive-by-download at its company's site, 3721.com. Has also apparently been included in junk e-mail, which could be how some Western users have ended up with it.

Advertising
Infection risk level: Low
Infection description: Advertising companies store cookies on a user's computer to serve targeted ads based on the web surfers interests when visiting a website serving their ads.

I fix checked and it got rid of everything except the ISTbar, I couldn't find it in the registry since it gave me the key - it had gone.

5. Went to find out more info on cmd.hta thru Google but it couldn't process my request as it said this:

We're sorry...
... but we can't process your request right now. A computer virus or spyware application is sending us automated requests, and it appears that your computer or network has been infected.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your computer is free of viruses and other spurious software.

So now I'm pretty muched stuffed so downloaded Hijackthis (to be honest Adaware has been good for me for ages) ran it and now have this log so in the hope that an expert can help me - because I need it!

Thanks a lot guys.

Welcome to GTG.

Please make sure that Word Wrap is turned OFF in Notepad next time before you post your HijackThis log. Take a look at the log you posted. Hard to read? So make sure you turn off Word Wrap next time :tazz:

OK, let's get to the fix:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

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.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

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. Make sure to close any open browsers. 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):

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.searchby.net/
O4 - Global Startup: [bleep].cmd - look in your original hijackthis.log file to see what the spelling of this filename is. I think the forum here at GeeksToGo editied out that word.
O21 - SSODL: System - {C40EE50D-1310-4E31-A427-C82F1457CF65} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\system32.dll (file missing)


Delete the following Files/Folders (delete folders if no filename is specified) according to their directory (if none, just do a search for them) and delete them if they exist:

[bleep].cmd - look in your original hijackthis.log file to see what the spelling of this filename is. I think the forum here at GeeksToGo editied out that word.
C:\WINDOWS\system32\system32.dll

Restart and run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro...call_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the free online scan. If any viruses/trojans are detected, try to delete or clean them in that site. If any are not cleanable, copy and paste the infected files here. You may also use Panda ActiveScan at http://www.pandasoft...ucts/activescan. Post the log from the Panda scan here.

Restart and run a new HijackThis scan. Save the log file and post it here.

That worked! You are definately a guru! I had some problems though, albiet minor.
When I booted in safe mode, my wife and administrator were the only profiles that
came up. I couldn't get into administrator using my password, and the admin profile
has never come before in safe mode - and at least I was there. So I tried to get into
my directory through hers but it denied me access. So I had to bl*"Ły copy hijackthis
to her directory and run it from there, it picked up the same stuff so got rid of it as you said. I thought, well why I'm here I may as well delete her home page lol - so I did. That'll put her in right spin I can assure you! Anyway at least I can recommend hijack this to her. She can sure talk the bleep off a brass monkey, that was that was btw, a double s.cmd.

I still cannot update my NAV, it keeps stalling on initialising - any ideas?

I have another question on svchost, perhaps that is another forum? Jesus I'm going on like my wife! :tazz:

For the administrator account, if neither of you entered a password for you, you should be able to get in without any password. Isn't your account an administrator account also? Or only your wife's? ;)

OK, you deleted that ss.cmd file right? What question do you have on svchost.exe? It's legit and it may be a trojan in some cases if it's not in the correct directory. Did I guess your question correctly? If not, ask here :tazz:

Oh, I didn't mean to remove her homepage. I don't usually spend my time checking every single webpage. If I think it's questionable, I usually ask users to remove it rather than me going to a (possibly bad) site. But she may set it back to that homepage again :)

Yes, that fixed the formatting issue here (word wrap). Much better :(

OK, since you just fixed that O21 entry:
O21 - SSODL: System - {C40EE50D-1310-4E31-A427-C82F1457CF65} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\system32.dll (file missing)

I want you to restart and post another new HijackThis log (run a new scan first).

How about the online virus scans? Do they find anything?

Hi greyknight17

With the administrator account. On normal windows bootup there are only 2 accounts, myself
and my wife both being administrators. When you boot on safe mode there 2 accounts, wy wife's and an administrator but not mine. Is this right?

*ss.cmd (it is what you sit on) - yes I deleted it.

svchost.exe. You pretty much got it, further though, should svchost.exe be asking to act as a server? Should I grant it permission even when I'm not doing anything on the internet? How can I check what process svchost belongs to? Oh and how large should these files be, sometimes they are sucking 20mb of memory!

Homepage. Just a bit of fun at that late hour!

Trendmicro virus scan. Did it and it was all clear. I can also now search google again.

NAV2002. The latest program to download NAV definitions is luComServer_2_6.exe. I granted it permission to access the internet and it updated NAV on automatic mode however, when I try to instigate a manual liveupdate it just stalls on "initialisation". There are also 2 other versions of the liveupdate file, luComServer.exe (the original) and luComServer_2_5.exe, they have asked for permissions before and I have usually granted it so 2_5 asked permission than 2_6 (can't remember if in that order). I changed that thru ZA denying access to the 2 old files some time ago but and didn't have any problems with downloading the latest virus def files. I hope I'm making sense! My question is why (when set to automatic) does it download and install the latest def's but when I try to do it manually it just hangs on initialisation? In the end I have to shut it down.

TaskManager. When I go ctrl/alt/del taskmanager pops up but does not have the my menu's at the top (File, Edit etc). I have to just kills the taskmgr.exe process. This happened around the same time as all this *ss.cmd stuff and is still happening now.

Is there any non-essential processes I can remove. Oh and that blasted searchbynet just won't go away, I got rid of it and as you can see it came back again. Bit like my brother... "Yeah you've seen London dude, no need to pop in, the airports your next stop!" Just kidding. :tazz:

Also, can you shed some light on what was going on here - the infection. I'm ususually well protected with ZA and NAV. I think I should buy ZA Pro to blocked certain IP addresses, Hijack this too (feeling guilty now you sorted me out!).

Ok, here's my log:
Cheers!

Do you want that searchby.net or just joking? I haven't checked it myself yet, but it looks bad - could be wrong ;)

I don't like Norton. The problem could be because it's Norton :tazz: If you can switch, I highly recommend using Grisoft AVG over Norton. It's free and does a great job.

Not sure about the Task Manager problem. See if this fixes it up, if not ask this in the Windows Forum:
Go to Start->Run and type in sfc /scannow and hit OK. Let it scan. If it finds any files missing/corrupted, it may ask for the Windows CD.

Usually svchost.exe asks to go online for legitimate reasons. But if you open a program and see that svchost.exe is trying to access the internet, I would be suspicious - especially when the program doesn't do any updates. If it's updating the software, I wouldn't worry too much. If it's just asking for access out of the blue, then deny it. Just don't check that box unless you're 100% sure it shouldn't go out :)

Check and fix these in HijackThis to see if it speed things up:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.searchby.net/
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [diagent] "C:\Program Files\Creative\SBLive\Diagnostics\diagent.exe" startup

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

Your log is clean.

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.

Hi,

My system loads much faster now I removed the files you said to. :tazz:

Yeah that searchby.net , I know what it is. When you download Ultimate Pop Up Killer it changes your home page, it says if you want the home page back to normal than remove the pop up killer. So I might just do that.

I'll do that sfc /scannow later also, if I have problems than I'll go to the windows post.

I'm going to install that AVG, my mate raves about that but he's a bit of an amateur so just went yeah yeah blah blah! Now a guru says so too, it must be worth a look! :)

Well you've been a gentleman and a scholar, thx a lot and take it easy!

;)
