I know of 2 main problems I have contracted, WinFixer 2005 and ABetterInternet (Auroua - ABI). I cannot seem to get rid of them. I have run the Clean Up program, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, and Ewido. I was unsuccessful in downloading updates from Microsoft, however. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my hijack log...

Hi jormungand and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

I can see that you have some malware issues. This maybe a few step process in removing it. I encourage you to stick with it and follow my directions as closely as possible so as to avoid complicating the problem further.

I noticed that your HiJackthis.exe is located on your desktop, make sure to save HijackThis in its own folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This is very important, so HiJackThis can save backups!


DOWNLOAD PROGRAMS



Please download Nailfix from Here
please do NOT run it yet.

Download DSRFIX from HERE onto your Desktop.
  • Unzip and EXTRACT the files to your Desktop.
  • The program creates and names the new folder to house the files.
  • DO NOT RUN IT YET
Download and install CleanUp! Here*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.
We will use this program later.


THE FIX


Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

1. Click this link to be sure you can view hidden files.

2. Ensure you are NOT connected to the internet.

3. Open the folder dsrfix
  • Double click on the dsrfix batch file( the one with the little gear in it )
  • Once dsrfix has completed it will close on its own
4. Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

5. Go to Start->Run and type in services.msc and hit OK. Then look for System Startup Service (SvcProc) and double click on it. Click on the Stop button and under Startup type, choose Disabled. (if present)

6. Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on
Nailfix.exe on your desktop. Click next, then finished. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

7. Now open and run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • During the scan when it ask if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK
  • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

8. Close all browsers, windows and unneeded programs.

9. Open HiJack and do a scan.

Thanks for helping me out with these problems. I have a quick question. I already downloaded CleanUp4.0, do I need to do it again from the link you included on your post?

Well, I've executed your instructions as best I could. Everything seems to be working good. Although, the first time I opened up IE, my home page had changed to about:blank. This slightly concerns me. I ran the Active Scan and it found nothing. I didn't get a specific log to paste...did I not run it correctly?

Looks pretty good! Your home page would be set to aboutblank becasue we got rid of the HiJacker. You can reset it by going to tools then internet options in your IE Browser.

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast
AntiVir


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4
Spywareguard
IE/Spyad

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)

Sygate
Kerio
ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox
Opera

If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Included in those updates is Windows XP Service Pack 2. Click Here
Since you're junkware free, the time to get it is NOW. Service Pack 2 is a MAJOR upgrade for XP. It adds numerous security and software patches, as well as new features and functionality. You will also be adding another layer of protection against future threats.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

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

Thank you so much for your expertise and guidance. I don't know how the average joe is supposed to get rid of this crap by themselves. I do already have Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, and CleanUp. I have Norton Internet Security 2005, is this acceptable anti-virus/firewall protection? I reset my hidden files before I even connected to the internet after cleaning up my computer. I also had reset my home page, I was just concerned that about:blank was a new problem.
I tried to get the microsoft update and the error message I got was possibly a proxy/firewall configuration problem. Where do I find the firewall configuration settings?

Thanks again for taking the time out of your day to help me.

Sincerely,
Bjorn

Good combo there :) make sure you keep them all updated ;)

When you get that error, there should be a link to help fix the problem. That would be your best way to attack that.

Good luck and happy/safe surfing

The link to fix said I should start by changing the proxy/firewall configuration, but i don't know where to find that. Could you possibly direct me on how to get there?
Thanks

here is what the troubleshoot says:
Resolutions
1. A misconfigured Proxy/Firewall can cause this problem. Double-check the Proxy/Firewall settings.
Add the following urls to the exception list within your Firewall/Proxy:
http://*.update.microsoft.com
https://*.update.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com
For help configuring Proxy/Firewall refer to documentation or contact the manufacturer.

Does this help? I just don't know where to go to possibly add the recommended urls.
