Between Adaware, Spybot, Trojan Hunter, and Spyware Doctor, I've managed to remove nearly 1600 spyware problems from a customers computer, however I am still getting Winfixer 2005 and searc-h popups. :tazz:

================================================
The problem seems to be associated with the RunDLL32.exe process, which, if end-tasked, goes away, taking the popup problem with it, at least for a while. Something is then restarting the process.

The Internet Explorer install has been corrupted, so, while still working partially, thinks it is IE5, it won't repair because so many files are the wrong version, and it won't let me install ie6 over the top, because "A previous installation has pending work requiring a reboot". This means that online scanners like trendmicros housecall won't work. ;)

:)

Edit: I've been directed to Process Explorer by Skate_Punk (IRC). The rundll process in question looks like this:

Hi Magilla 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.

Download Findit Here and unzip the contents to a folder. When it has unzipped, open that folder and double click on Find.bat. It will run for a while, so be patient, and then produce a log (ignore any File not found messages on the screen, it should continue anyway).

Please copy and paste that log here.

From the moment you post your list, until you see a detailed fix written up, DO NOT reboot your system or log off. If you do, the files will have changed and the fix provided will not work.


Thanks,

:tazz:

Please download L2m9xfix here:
http://swandog46.gee...om/l2m9xfix.exe

Save it to the desktop and run it. Extract the files, and then open the l2m9xfix folder you just created and run RunThis.bat.

A window will open, and your desktop will disappear, then reappear. Please be patient until the batch says it is completed.

Then please restart your computer, and post a new HijackThis log as well as the entire text of the log.txt file which should be in the same folder as RunThis.bat.

Download Track qoo
Save it somewhere you will remember like the Desktop

Double Click on "Track qoo.vbs"

Note - If you Antivirus has Script Blocking, you will get a Pop Up Windows asking you what to do. Allow this Entire Script to Run, its harmless!

Wait a few seconds and a notepad page will pop up, Copy & Paste those results and place them in the next post along with the results of FindIt9xME!

Thanks,

I've tried to delete SKLWOA.DLL twice with KillBox, but to no avail. Every time I fix the hosts file, it gets changed back. What next?

=========================
I repaired the hosts file after deleting SKLWOA.dll, and it has remained the same since :tazz:
Unfortunately, not having read the instructions properly, I forgot to save a copy first. This was the original backup created by hoster:

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I replaced it after deleting SKLWOA.dll, and it now seems to be OK...

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

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


I recommend that you Defrag your computer:

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Defragmentor Make sure it set to the proper drive (default should be your main driver) and click on defragment


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.

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
