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

Download CleanUp
Install the program, dont run it yet, we will later.

Please download this file: Nailfix Utility
Save it to your desktop.
DO NOT run it yet.

Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.
DO NOT run it yet.

Download dsrfix.zip
Save it to your desktop.
  • Unzip dsrfix.zip and extract it to your desktop.
  • This will create a new folder on your desktop named dsrfix.
  • Do Not open that folder yet.
Please download APT and unzip the contents to a new folder on your desktop.
  • Open the folder you just created and click on apt.exe and search in the window for c:\windows\system32\nezllmd.exe.
  • Open your C:\Windows\system32 folder and search for nezllmd.exe.
    Don't delete it yet, just leave the system32 folder open so you can see the bad file.
  • In APT again, Select c:\windows\system32\nezllmd.exe and Click Kill3
  • Then immediately delete nezllmd.exe from your system32 folder.
Close APT.

To reboot into SafeMode with Windows XP, you can follow these steps from Microsoft:

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start tapping press F8 key.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in 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.

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on 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.

Now open ewido and do a scan of your system.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
  • Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
  • 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 or a location where you can find it easily.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:


R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PSof1] C:\WINDOWS\System32\PSof1.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lanbrup] C:\WINDOWS\System32\lanbrup.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Sysnet] C:\DOCUME~1\Woodmax\LOCALS~1\Temp\sysnet.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dinst] C:\WINDOWS\dinst.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [u3sT3sR] mdwacypt.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ygmddll] C:\WINDOWS\ygmddll.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ygmdenc] C:\WINDOWS\ygmdenc.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intel32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\intel32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PSGuard] C:\Program Files\PSGuard\PSGuard.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [System service62] C:\WINDOWS\etb\pokapoka62.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nmtjbj] c:\windows\system32\nezllmd.exe r

O4 - Global Startup: spnsrv9x.exe


Close all open windows except for HJT, then click the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

Now open the folder dsrfix on your desktop.
  • Double-Click on dsrfix.bat
  • A window will pop up briefly then close, this is normal.
Enable show hidden files and folders:

* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK

Now using Windows Explorer find and remove the following folders/files
C:\WINDOWS\System32\PSof1.exe <-- File
C:\WINDOWS\System32\lanbrup.exe <-- File
C:\WINDOWS\etb <-- Folder

Now run the CleanUp program:

*IMPORTANT NOTE*
CleanUp deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups.
If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp

Running CleanUp
  • Start CleanUp by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
  • When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
  • Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
  • Now place a checkmark next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
    • Delete Cookies
      This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies, at this point removing cookies is a good idea
    • Empty Recycle Bins
    • Delete Prefetch files
    • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click OK
  • Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
  • When asked to reboot system select No
  • Close CleanUp
Finally, restart your computer back into Normal Mode and please post a new HJT log, as well as the ewido report log from the Ewido scan by using Add Reply

Nice work. :tazz:

That should be much better already.

Click Start > Run type services.msc > OK
In the list of services find:
Windows VisFx Components
Rightclick that line and choose Properties.
On the General tab Stop and set the service to disabled.
In HijackThis click Config > Misc Tools > Delete an NT service
In the dialog box paste: Windows VisFx Components

Reboot and that should do it.
Let me kow if your computer is behaving OK.

Please have a look at my site for some tips on how to remove and prevent spyware.

Pieter,

Yes, my computer is behaving MUCH better now, thanks to you. I am in your debt.

The only thing that seems to be related at least in timing, is that I have lost all my menus in Internet Explorer...pull downs, title bar, adress bar,etc. I may just download an update for it, unless you have any other ideas.

Thank you once again, your services proved to be invaluable to me.

Best Regards,
Tim

You mean if you click "View" in IE you can't re-enable them?

If so, click Start > Run > copy&paste regedit /e c:\NoBandCust.txt "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" > OK

If that key exists this will create the file c:\NoBandCust.txt
Post the content of that file.

There is no View to click on. There are no pull down menus, no icons, no address bar, etc. just the Windows title bar across the top.

I pasted your regedit entry in, but no file was created.

Thanks

I see you have to upgrade to SP2 anyway (IE and Windows)

I'd try that first. Let me know how it works out.

Pieter,

I found a program called Google Toolbar for IE, uninstallled it, and that took care of my menu problems in IE.

Also updated to SP2.

I re-did scans in AdAware, Spybot and Ewido, and AdAware found something relating to PSGuard. I had it delete it. The others didn't find anything.

I think that's it. Everything seems to be working great again.

Thanks again for all your help!

Best regards,
Tim
