I'm working on a friends Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop that was infected with the Aurora Spyware. I reviewed a lot of posts on this site and I think I've got most of it licked. I also couldn't get the Windows Firewall to turn on, but again this site was a great help.

Now... how do I know I'm finished?

I'm not getting anymore popups, no more requests to load WinFixer, my homepage isn't changing and no other spyware 'seems' to be present.

I've got Windows OS updated, loaded Ad Aware and Spybot, installed Microsoft AntiSpyware and updated all the Office patches.

Anything else? BTW, This site ROCKS!

HELP!!!!

Ok, now what happened?

I'm all done. think everything is ok... just checked Windows Update for the last time... and now the laptop won't reboot!!!

After the last update (and I'm not sure what was loaded then) the screen comes to the desktop, but keeps 'clocking' and never finshes...

I opened Windows Task Manager and checked the Processes tab:

System Idle Process - 99 (CPU)
then
ewidoguard.exe - 60 (CPU)
then
svchost.exe - 80 (CPU)

and then back through again.

I started it in SAFE MODE and ran CCleaner and Ewido Security Suite with no noticable results.

What should I check to work this out????

I started a new thread in Geeks To Go > Operating Systems > Windows XP, 2000, 2003, NT (OLD THEAD), but it was closed and I was asked to start a thread in this topic.

No one has replied yet, so I'm not sure how to proceed.

I left the laptop running overnight.

It still doesn't fully boot, but the Microsoft AntiSpyware ran it's nightly scheduled scan and indicates '0 items detected'. I'm unable to close off the results box and still can not acceess the All Programs listing.

Laptop still boots in SAFE MODE

Hi Woch2331

Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Please download and install AD-Aware se.
Click Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first. Don't run yet.

Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it; save it to your Desktop. We may need it later.

Download CWShredder (there is a link in my signature), unzip it, and save it on the Desktop. Please do not run it yet, though.

Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Run Ewido full scan. Save the scan.log and post the log.

Clear out the files in the Prefetch folder. Go to start> run> type into the box Prefetch and delete all the files in that folder.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an check in the boxes, only next to these following items:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://searchbar.fin...siteyouneed.com
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://searchbar.fin...siteyouneed.com

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Run Ad-aware se let it remove all it finds

Run CWShredder to fix your CWS problem.

Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure all are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Run killbox and click the radio button that says Delete a file on reboot. For each of the files you could not delete, paste them one at a time into the full path of file to delete box and click the red circle with a white cross in it.
The program will ask you if you want to reboot; say No each time until the last one has been pasted in whereupon you should answer (Yes.)
C:\windows\sp2update.exe
C:\WINDOWS\msresearch.exe


Let the system reboot as normal.

Please download, install and run this disk cleanup utility called Cleanup version 4.0!: http://downloads.ste...p/CleanUp40.exe
It will get rid of any malware which may be hiding in your temp folders ( a common hiding place). You will also regain a massive amount of disk space. Here is a tutorial which describes its usage: http://www.bleepingc...tutorial93.html
Check the custom settings to your liking under options, but be sure to delete temporary files and temporary internet files for all user profiles. Also, cleanout the prefetch folder and the recycle bin.When the scan has finnished click the close button
When prompted the system will log off to let it clean out the remaining files. when the log screen shows log back on and continue the fix.

Please run the following free, online virus scans.
http://enterprises.p...l_companies.htm
Please post the log From Panda virus scan. We will need them to remove previous infections that have left files on your system.

Run HijackThis and post the new log.

Hi Woch2331

Try this Hold down the following keys--> Ctrl --> Alt--> Delete.

Taskmgr will popup have a look and see what file is causing the delay.

Then end the task.

I opened Task Manager and went to the Processes tab...

Not sure what to stop first.

I noticed, gcasDTServ.exe and gcasServ.exe, looked them up, and these seem to be related to the Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware.

---------------------------------------------------
alg.exe LOCAL SERVICE
ccEvtMgr.exe SYSTEM
ccSetMgr.exe SYSTEM
csrss.exe SYSTEM
ewidoctrl.exe SYSTEM
ewdioguard.exe SYSTEM
explorer.exe Kyle
gcasDtServ.exe Kyle
gcasServ.exe Kyle
lsass.exe SYSTEM
services.exe SYSTEM
smss.exe SYSTEM
snmp.exe SYSTEM
spoolsv.exe SYSTEM
svchost.exe SYSTEM
svchost.exe NETWORK SERVICE
svchost.exe SYSTEM
svchost.exe NETWORK SERVICE
svchost.exe LOCAL SERVICE
System SYSTEM
System Idle Process SYSTEM
taskmgr.exe Kyle
winlogon.exe SYSTEM
wmiprvse.exe NETWORK SERVICES
wuauclt.exe SYSTEM

---------------------------------------------------

Under the Performance tab the CPU Usage History runs from 0% to 100% and continues the cycle.

During the boot up I'm now recieving a Symantec User Session error dialog box. It indicates 'An unknown error has occured', with the error code of 1002,0. I can click OK and the box goes away, but still does not fully load.

Should I run through the SAFE MODE steps once again and post any logs?

Thank for you help with this...

Hi Woch2331

Download this scanner - cureit.
ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/drweb-cureit.exe

Run drweb - cureit
Doubleclick the "drweb-cureit.exe" and click "ok" in the prompt window that will open , asking "start the express scan now".
It will first make a quick scan of your system, let it clean what it find, and when it says "done" in the lower left corner click on all your drive's.
A red dot will mark the selected drive(s) . Then hit the pedestrian who now has turned green
Click on the green man in the right corner, it will scan All your drive's, say yes to all

Post a new Hjt.log when done.

Just got back to the house...

And it boots up!!!!

I'm still getting a Symantec error, but I think that has to do with the program itself and I'm going to reinstall that next.

Should I be running any scans on a regular basis to be checking for 'issues'?

I ususally run, Ad Aware, Spybot and recently installed Windows AntiSpyware on my computers... what else would you suggest?


Thanks for all the help... so far, so good.


Mike

Hi Woch2331

I normally run all my spyrepair programs every day and an online scan every week.

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use). Click Here

It Prevent's the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox.

2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .
You can download Sun's newer JVM for Windows at http://java.sun.com/getjava/index.html.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats.

Have a nice Day.
