Please help me. I've been trying to remove Alexa, PSGuard, Smitfraud, desktophijack and it just keeps getting worse. Also, I have 2 missing files that I don't know how to restore. They are C:\Windows\System\Imagehlp.dll and C:\Windows\System\Wininet.dll. I followed all your instructions for removal, including Spybot, AdAware, Cleanup, etc. I can't even post from the infected computer because it takes so long. Below is my log from Hijack This:

Hi Efwis, Thanks for the reply. After working for 7 days on this, yesterday, I reloaded Windows 98 and I can no longer open IE to get to the internet in order to follow your instructions. Any suggestions so that I can get a connections? (I also installed Norton 2005). Thanks.

you should be able to do a IE repair.

accessing the IE Repair feature for Windows 98 SE:
  • Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information
  • Click Tools (tool bar) -> Internet Explorer Repair Tool
Alternatively, you may follow the instructions for IE5.01 (below).

To repair Internet Explorer 5.01:
  • Click Start -> Run
  • Type: msinfo32.exe
  • Click OK
  • Msinfo32.exe tools will open
  • Click Tools (tool bar) -> Internet Explorer Repair Tool
if neither one of these options help, let me know I have another route we can use.

I did both and got no response. Still can't connect. Do you think I should just reformat and start from scratch? If so, I need help doing that. Thanks.

Is that something that I should copy to disk on my working desktop and then open on my non-connecting, virus-infected desktop (since I can't connect)?

actually if you have your working one connected to a printer that would work even better, you don't have any downloads to do from the internet for it.

ok, for comprehensive reinstallation please go to the following website. it has all the information you need plus step by step instructions.

http://www.windowsre...dexfullpage.htm

It is suggested that you find and copy all your updates to a cd rom if possible, since Microsoft has discountinued supporting this operating system and has stopped supplying the updates for it.

If this doesn't work for you then we will need to do a complete format and reinstall of the system.

to do this, start your computer with your win98 startup disk, if you dont' have one do the following:

click on My computer
put a floppy disk in the floppy drive
right click on A: drive and choose format, make sure you have selected make a boot disk, standard format and then click on enter.

Next, boot the computer with windows boot disk you just made, then type the following

format c:\

this will take some time, next type D: (D represents your cd-rom drive)
then Type setup.exe this will start your windows setup program. then follow the information in the link I provided above.

let me know if there are any other problems or questions.

OK - I have reinstalled Windows 98, then I had to reinstall IE and I'm now getting Windows updates. I'm preparing to reinstall Norton 2005. I still have the spyware, so should I go through all those steps all over again starting with spybot, ad-aware, etc? Here is my Hijack this log:

OK - I'll try all of this again, but I did this all before and when I got to the part about del c:\windows..., the message was "access denied". Also, when I start in Safe mode, I get an internal error (grey box) from Explorer, saying the program will be shut down, then this sets off many other grey boxes. I've tried over and over and it happens only when I start in Safe mode. Also, when I start in regular mode (not Safe mode), I get an msdos message saying "missing file SYMTDI.VXD", then several other pages about Sytem.Ini file refers to the file....C:\Program~1\Norton~1\Savrt. It sounds like I need to reinstall Norton, but I can't get it to uninstall all the way in order to install it! Also, maybe I need to reinstall the drivers?

ok, to remove those entries we need you to boot to the command prompt, not just windows safe mode.

* Click the Start button
* Select Shut Down
* Select Restart the computer in MS-DOS mode
* Click the Yes button

then do the file deletions

That's what I was doing and it would not let me delete the files. In the meanwhile, the PSGuard and smitfraud keep coming back. I can't go into Safe mode because to start over with your instructions again (where you say restart in safe mode) because of the problems I mentioned with IE.
