Hello,

This my first time here, but unfortunately I'm here to ask for help. ;)

I've followed the required steps, but a yellow or red "!" in the task bar and the "PS Guard" keeps coming back everytime when my laptop gets connected to the Internet - it didn't matter how many times I've used Ad-aware to clean them! :tazz: (For exmaple, I knew I've cleaned them before I reboot my laptop, but I see them again when I'm posting now...)

Also I've run Ewido and found about 20 objects/entries infected, but for some unknow reason I couldn't save the Ewido log; I couldn't do the ActiveScan from Panda's website either; my 2003 Norton with outdated definition keeps telling me the object in C:\WINDOWS\system32\WININET.dll was infected by Bloodhound.W32.EP. It's very frustrating... :)

Here's my HijackThis log. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance for your help.

Welcome sleepyhead to Geeks to Go!

Please read these instructions carefully. You may want to print them. Copy the text to a Notepad file and save it to your desktop! We will need the file later.
Be sure to follow ALL instructions!


***

Copy the purple text below into notepad. Save it as stwoyle.reg (set filetype to "All Files")

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6AC3806F-8B39-4746-9C38-6B01CB7331FF}

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SharedTaskScheduler]
"{6AC3806F-8B39-4746-9C38-6B01CB7331FF}"=-

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\style2]


***

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.

***

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

***

Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.

The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.On the left hand side of the main screen click update
Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed, close Ewido for now.

***

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, please download and install AdAware SE 1.06.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

***

Download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Place the following lines (complete paths) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox, and click the red button with the white X on it after each

C:\WINDOWS\System32\conime.exe
C:\WINDOWS\q33871414_disk.dll

For these file, put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot". Copy and paste each file into the file name box, then click the red button with the X after each. It will ask you if you want to reboot each time you click it, answer NO until after you've pasted the last file name, at which time you should answer Yes.

If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

***

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:
http://www.pchell.co.../safemode.shtml

***

Open HijackThis
Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PSGuard] C:\Program Files\PSGuard\PSGuard.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intell32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\intell32.exe

O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} -
http://207.188.7.150...ip/RdxIE601.cab

O20 - Winlogon Notify: style2 - C:\WINDOWS\q33871414_disk.dll (file missing)

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running.
Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

***

Double-click the stwoyle.reg we made earlier. Grant permission to add it to the Registry.

***

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.
Post me the contents of the smitfiles.txt log as you post back.

***

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

***

Now open Ewido Security Suite:* Click on scanner
* Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
* During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, 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 (do try to save it as I need the input)
Reboot your computer.

***

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

***

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Let me know if it worked now.
Save the report and post it along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

g2i2r4,

First of all thank you for your reply. You don't know how much I appreciate your help. ;)

I'm trying to follow every step as you instructed, but I still have problem with Ewido... I can't save the log. Due to the past experience, I tried to scan just a folder first and saved the log to my desktop, but the saving action failed again. An error message poped up saying Ewido will be closed due to some problems (I can't remember what they are exactly) and then the window closed automatically. This is exactly what happened to me before.

Should I stop here and wait for your further instruction, or should I just skip the Ewido scanning and go to Contorl Panel, Panda, etc? I know you need the Ewido log, but sorry I still couldn't save it. :tazz:

More updates...

There's no "Security Info" under Control Panel>Display>Desktop>Customize Desktop>Web.

And... Panda ActiveScan is working now! :tazz:

Once I'm done with Panda I'll post a new HijackThis Log, smitfiles.txt lod and the Panda ActiveScan report. ;)

Here's my latest HijackThis Log, the smitfiles.txt log, and Panda ActiveScan report. I didn't run the Ewido Complete System Scan due to the reason mentioned above, but please let me know if I need to run it. I'd be glad to do it (even thought the report can't be saved). Thanks.

Glad to see you didn't kill the conime.exe
It seems to belong to a program used when you are running non-western versions. :tazz:

We need to do some work for PSGuard.

Use Killbox to remove this file:
C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop.htt

Let the system reboot to safe mode.

Run runthis again in safe mode.

Also run Ewido in safe mode. Write down the ones related to PSGuard and the ones that get away (not cleared).

Then reboot to do panda again.

Post me back the info you have on Ewido scan, the smitfiles.txt and the panda report.

Sorry it took me a while to run Ewido and Panda.

Ewido found 17 infected objects and prompted me to delete them, but I didn't see any related to PS Guard. All 17 objects are cleared/deleted before I closed Ewido (Hopefully I didn't delete anything critical). The 17 infected objects are as follows:

Infected by Trojan.Puper.aj:
C:\System Volume Information\_restore...\A0008045.exe
C:\System Volume Information\_restore...\A0008046.exe

You can remove this one:
C:\WINDOWS\launcher.exe

Also remove the c:\!submit

The rest is found in System Restore. If you tell me the computer is running ok now, I will post you some tips for the future. One of them is creating a new system restore point.

I take it the computer is running ok now?

The C:\WINDOWS\launcher.exe is removed, but the C:\!Submit is still there. I used Killbox and set it as Delete on Reboot for both of them, but I was not sure why only one was deleted. Also I notice there are two files in the C:\!Submit folder:

C:\!Submit\conime.exe
C:\!Submit\Desktop.htt

Except this, it seems to me the computer is running ok. ;)

Again, thank you very much, g2i2r4! :tazz:

:tazz: You had no way of knowing this, but the !submit folder is made by Killbox after killing a file.

Use Windows Explorer to remove the !submit folder.

Shall I post you some tips for the future then and close the topic?

Sorry for a late reply... I removed the !submit folder successfully this time. :)

I tried to run Ewido in Safe Mode, reboot the computer, and run Panda ActiveScan again before I tell you the computer is ok. (I know I may be too careful. ;) ) Also just in case, I'll post my latest HijackThis Log too.

Ewido found another system restore file infected with Trojan and cleaned it. Panda found a suspicious file:

***
Incident Status Location

Possible Virus. No disinfected C:\Program Files\2Wire\sy_apps\dllupdate.exe ***

I guess my computer is ok? If so, I'd love to learn some tips from you for the future. Just one more question. If I want to uninstall Ewido later, can I remove those files in the vault completely?

Thanks again g2i2r4. I feel much much better than few days ago when I just realized something weird happened to my machine. You're the man! :tazz:

Panda sees part of your modem as possibly infected. It thinks it recognizes some kind of a signature. We will not remove your modem thou :tazz:

I'll give you the tips for the future because your HijackThis log and Ewido are clean now.

Stay well!

-----------

Please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
