I have followed the directions as I was best able to do so on You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log, Required steps before posting your log. MY OS is Windows98 build 4.10.2222. Here is how it went:

I reinstalled my winsock. I ran CleanUp. I installed and ran Ad-awareSE, deleted detected items. Ran CW Shredder, nothing detected. SpyBot S&D runs but crashes at the end. Everytime. Ewido won't run under my OS. Disabled Norton AV and ran Trend Housecall. Also ran AVG with NAV disabled. Nothing detected. Uninstalled AVG. NAV also did not detect anything. Downloaded, installed and ran TrojanHunter. Deleted detected items. Ran HijackThis! and got rid of suspicious items. Still having a problem with pop-ups. I use Zone Alarm Pro to block the sites as fast as I can and I find that I have to update the IP addresses now and again because the tricky dirtballs are changing them every few days.

Here is a list of some of the domains my browser spontaneously opens up and points to and I have since blocked:

www.automotive.com
addynamix.com
www.pacimedia.com
www.yieldmanager.com
www.xbloom.com
z1.adserver.com
dist.belnk.com
media17.fastclick.net
adopt.hbmediapro.com
ad.firstadsolution.com
www.spotresults.com
www.heavy.com
and the IP 64.192.130.141

I have not had to resort to a blatant cry for help in the past. I have always been able to fix any problems that have arisen. In over a decade of computing this is my first stumper. The frustration is enormous. Please help.

Here is my HijackThis! log:

Hi D. Welcome to GTG. Sorry you were overlooked the first go-round, but we'll get you fixed up this time.

Please run hijack this again and post the new log in this thread. :tazz:

* Please click this link to download Silent Runners.
* Save it to the desktop.
* Run Silent Runner's by doubleclicking the "Silent Runners" icon on your desktop.
* You will see a text file appear on the desktop - it's not done yet, just let it run (it won't appear to be doing anything!)
* Once you receive the prompt "All Done!", double-click on the new text file on the desktop and copy that entire log and paste it here.

*NOTE* If you receive any warning message about scripts, please choose to allow the script to run.

Hi D. I couldn't help but notice that you have quite a few time-setting programs on your computer. Is there a reason for that?

Please download CleanUp! - Download - HomePage

Don't run it yet.

There are quite a few programs available that offer protection features to help keep a computer from getting infected. While this is normally a helpful feature, it can keep a victim from making the changes necessary to clean their comptuer. Please read the following and uninstall or disable those that apply to your machine.

These programs need to be uninstalled

AdWatch

These programs can just be disabled

Microsoft Antispyware
TeaTimer
SpySweeper
Win Patrol
Spyware Guard
PSGuard
Pestpatrol
Regrun
Diamonds Process controller


You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

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.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SBWatchDog.EXE] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SBUtils\SBWatchDog.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\SYSTEM\SBUtils\<<entire folder

Run CleanUp! When it finishes it will prompt you to restart Windows - there will be one or two files it cannot delete when Windows is running - however, they will be deleted next time Windows starts up.

Reboot and let me know how it is running. :tazz:

First let me say that it appears to be successful! :) THANKS! :tazz:

Here's how it went:

I printed out the details and got to work. I already had Cleanup on my PC. I ran HJT and deleted the SBWatchdog item. I was under the impression that this file was a system file from the manufacturer but I read online that it is SPYWARE from the PC manufacturer. This is what through me. I did not expect that a file that had been there for so long and was installed by the manufacturer (SONY) could possibly be malware. I have now learned a major malware lesson: suspect everything!

After deleting the entry with HJT I rebooted and tried to enter safe mode. F8 did not work and I entered windows. I tried again holding control and still no luck. I used tweakUI to force a boot screen option and got to safe mode that way. I then deleted the troublesome folder. I suspect that this particular form of malware piggybacked off the SBWatchdog, using its activity to trigger its own. Whether it was resident in the SBWatchdog folder or is elsewhere is unknown. As it is unlikely to be triggered if it is elsewhere the point is likely moot.

So far there haven't been any more pop-ups. I will post another report in 3 days if there are no more pop-ups, sooner if there are.

A nice elegant solution to a persistently irritating problem. My compliments on your efficacy. I am very pleased with the help I received and am happy to be joining the team at GTG.

Thanks very much CW6! You spared me the hassle of wiping the machine! ;)

Cool beans. Glad to have you aboard. :tazz:

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Weather Watcher - Free taskbar weather program that is free, malware free, and resource light.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

Hi CW6,

My system has been working fine without any repeat of the pop-up problem. I consider my original issue for starting this thread resolved.
Thanks! :tazz: :) :)

I used the Panda ActiveScan and it found over 170 items on my system. I then upgraded to the Pro version and deleted them. I was so impressed by Panda that when my Norton AV subscription runs out in January I will switch to a Panda product.

I was able to run the free ActiveScan because I no longer had pop-ups that would crash the system. However, I probably could have used the ActiveScan by starting it, halting/blocking my Internet connection, than reconnecting to the Internet after the scan completed to see the final report.

I am very happy with the efficacy of your instructions. I have my PC back and will carefully review your suggestions for other programs to consider. I have my peace of mind back and am no longer worried about my PC and when/if I can get it to run adequately again.

I am unable to do so this week but I will try next week to give you a fiscal boon. I know it is not required but I would like to send you something to aid you in the cause. :ph34r:

Thanks for all your help! :)
