I have tried and tried again to get rid of a bunch of pop ups and other stuff on my wifes desktop. She swears she hasn't gone anywhere off mainstream and still I can't get rid of this stuff.

If you can help at all, I would greatly appreciate the guidance. I have attempted to do as instructed. In addition, I have run Pest patrol that seems to find even more than adaware

Thank you
Brian

Your computer has a number of spyware programs that we need to remove. For more info on spyware see the Spyware FAQ link in my signature.

Let's start with a couple free programs.

Ad-aware. Open Ad-Aware and use the Check for updates now link. Download and accept the latest reference file. When finished click the Start button. When done scanning, the Abort button will change to Next. Click the Next button. Right-click in the Scanning Results window and click "Select all objects". Then click the "Next" button and confirm that you want to delete the selected entries.

Spybot Search & Destroy Download and install. Start Spybot S&D using the "Spybot-S&D (easy mode)" link from your Start menu . Click the Search for updates button, if any are found then click the Download Updates button. After all updates are downloaded, click the Check for problems button. When the scan is complete, place a check next to anything marked in red, then click the Fix selected problems button. You may need to run Spybot S&D multiple times to remove all infections.

When finished, Reboot your computer. Finally, reply to this post with a new HiJackThis log so we can look for any nasties that may have been missed. <_<

CLICK HERE to download Ad-aware

tried using ADaware and it keeps getting stuck at this point:

C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$\msrdp.cab..

is this something that I can delete or is this something I should keep. Either way, without getting past this file, the program will continue to get hung up.

I really appreciate the help!!!

Sincerely,
Brian

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.
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch
O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Web Offer] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ezStub.exe

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ezStub.exe

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

This has become pure maddness.

I did as instructed and all of those files mentioned for me to delete couldn't be found

Again, I am unable to run adaware fully because the program hangs up scanning this file and it tries to scan it even if I uncheck the file in files to be scanned:

C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$\msrdp.cab..

I can do a smart system scan. at this point I find some disturbing files. I have attemted to delete them and my system just won't let me. I have started in safe mode and it makes no difference.

This is the browser window that continues to open without any prompting from my wife and with no other windows open. Kapersky continues to stop whatever content is trying to load in the window. It says it contains malicious code

http://69.20.56.3/normal/yyy12.html

This is also opening up
http://69.20.61.245/.../ad-armorie.htm

and this IE window

http://z1.adserver.c...ac=29;c=48;nc=1

I have searched the Registry and found nothing titled Adserver


In the temp folders I find index.dat and desktop.ini. These two files, I can’t delete!
In adaware, this seems to be the nasty that I can’t delete
Vendor:VX2
Category:Malware
Object Type:Process
Size:-
Location:C:\WINDOWS\system32\aecups.dll
Last Activity:11-28-2004 7:43:29 AM
Risk Level:High
TAC index:10
Comment:
Description:Malware. Causes Popups and may install unsolicited software.


I checked the file aecups.dll and it appears to have been created on 7/2/04. My wife doesn't have to much on the system. I have taken her off of the network and I am getting so frustrated that I am on the verge of wiping the [bleep] thing.
It would appear as though the F@#$Ker's have been able to get in and I can't get them out. What confuses me is that I don't understand what they hope to accomplish. I have no intention of buying something from them and in fact, if I could attack them with bats (maybe even the flying kind:)), I might consider it:)<_<

below is the latest Hijack this report.
I must once again say that I appreciate all the time and efforts you are all providing to help rid the planet of this crap

Sincerely,
Brian

it would appear as though everyone is now fully stumped and I don't know what else to do...I'm thinking I'm going to just wipe the system. I just wish I knew how to keep this crap off the system other than not allowing the wifes computer to surf the internet.

1. Download VX2Finder here: http://www.geekstogo...=download&id=37
Run Vx2Finder and click on the Click to find VX2.BetterInternet button.

Click the Make Log button.

Save the log some place convenient like My Documents. Include the contents of the log in your next reply here.

2. Download this ZIP file: http://www.geekstogo...=download&id=36
and unzip the contents to a folder, then open that folder and double click on Find.bat. It will run for a minute, then produce a log (ignore any File not found messages on the screen, it should continue anyway). Please copy and paste that log here as well.

3. Please download DllCompare from here: http://www.geekstogo...=download&id=38

When it has downloaded, run the program and click on the Run Locate.com button. When that has completed, click on the Compare button. When that completed click on the Make Log of What Was Found button. Then post the contents of that log as a reply to this post.

Only if you get an error after pressing Run Locate.com:
copy autoexec.nt from c:\windows\repair\ folder to c:\windows\system32\ folder.

4. Please also open the c:\Windows\System32 folder and see if there's a file there called Guard.tmp visible and report that here as well.

I am unable to successfully run Adaware. Many, many folders within the Windows folder cause adaware to hang up. I'm talking 20 minutes later and no movement. It never goes to "not responding", it just stops playing. After about 6 folders of me unchecking them in the customization, I just unchecked windows and it went through.

I ran the VX add on tool in adaware and it found nothng.

here is the latest highjack this log.

and because I can't say it enough, thank you very, very much
Brian

You might try to remove Google Tool Bar and extras. Removal of Programs
that are not needed one at a time may help to get Ad-Aware to work.
