Well looks like I'm hitting up the Geeks2Go forum again... Yet more spyware/adware infections... I'm a bit of a failure of the internet I think! I'm a returning infection! Heh, oh well, thanks in advance for any help you can give me... Here is an ActiveScan report, followed by my HiJackThis log...

I can't really find anything in the Hijackthis log (i'm just a newb at this though), but the ewido scan found some things and couldn't disinfect... So I don't know.. It's very odd.
Anyways, hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Sean

A dialer is a program which uses your modem to call specific numbers. Usually these calls are to numbers which charge the caller a fee for connecting. These are places like Adult Chat numbers etc etc. The problem is compounded if the infection can also pass on your credit card number to which the calls can be charged !!!!!!!!!! Why what happened ?? Are you concerned about the tibs.exe file ??


Copy the following in a new text file in Notepad and save it as fix.reg (make sure the Save as Type is set to All Files) -

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\MAIN\CONC]


Double click on fix.reg and let it merge with your registry.


To enable the viewing of Hidden files follow these steps:
  • Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
  • Double-click on the My Computer icon.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • After the new window appears select the View tab.
  • Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.

Nothing scary happened, aside from seeing the title of the malicious software :)
I was just worried about what it was... Because what I thought was right! As long as it isn't running, it shouldn't be dialing, right? (I'm worried about it now!)

The main reason I'm worried now is this: I went into Safe Mode and deleted the files you asked me to... Except one... tibs.exe wouldn't delete...

"C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\tibs.exe - The file cannot be deleted because it is being used by another person or program. Please close any programs using the file and try again."

And now I am panicking! I hit ctrl+alt+delete and culd not close any processes because it said they were all system processes... What do I do now?! :tazz: :)

And thanks again for the help so far... I just hope we get rid of this... After this, I don't think I'll ever use the internet again! (Ok, that's a lie)

Here's my hijackthis log... I'm praying we'll get this straightened out soon!

1) Please download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

2) Then please reboot into Safe Mode by restarting your computer and pressing F8 as your computer is booting up. Then select the Safe Mode option.

3) Once in Safe Mode, please run Killbox.

4) Select "Delete on Reboot".

5) Copy the following file and the path name and paste it in the box -

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\tibs.exe

6) Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again..

Let the system reboot.

Please one of the other three online scan listed in my signature at the bottom of this post and do an online scan. Post back the scan report.

Ok, KillBox removed tibs.exe, and I checked Windows Explorer to be sure. :tazz:

Alright!!! *cheers* :)

Nope, I don't have any issues, I was just worried when I did that first PandaScan and found that I had some form of devilry called "dialers", and I had some adware... So I came to the place that has saved me before!

So I thank you SO MUCH for saving me from that malicious software infection... and as much as I do appreciate your help, I hope I don't have to come back here again... Well at least this section of the forum! I'd rather not have anymore malicious stuff! :tazz:

But thanks a million!

Hi Sean,


CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!! Your PC is clean now :tazz:



I would recommend the following steps to keep your PC clean (especially Step 1 to install Service Pack 2 or SP2 and Step 8 now that your PC is clean) –

PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR FUTURE

Operating System
1. Keep the Windows and Internet Explorer updated with the latest fixes. These fixes are available free from Microsoft. Click on Tools in the IE menu bar and then on Windows update. You can also use the following links

Windows security and critical updates
Internet Explorer security and critical updates

Also ensure that automatic updates are enabled for faster updation of the system.
(Right click on My Computer on your desktop, properties and Automatic Updates tab.


Anti-Virus Software
2. Keep your Anti-virus program updated with the latest definitions. Some of the common anti-virus programs in use are :

Norton Anti-Virus
McAfee Anti-Virus
AVG Anti-Virus --- freeware
Avast Home Edition --- freeware

Use only one anti-virus program as multiple such programs can create conflicts between themselves and severely hamper the performance of your PC.


Firewall
3. You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
Sygate Personal Firewall, Kerio Personal Firewall, ZoneAlarm


Internet Browsers
4. Have robust explorer settings. It is preferable to use an internet browser other that IE as most of the malware is targetted at IE. In case you prefer to use IE, then download a list of innocent looking but harmful websites from IE-Spyad and install it on ur PC. IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your internet explorer's restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't really innocent at all.

Some alternate browsers I suggest are Firefox Mozilla Browser and Opera

Ensure that Security level, irrespective of whichever browser you use, is set at Medium or higher, restrict the usage of cookies and activeX components.


Spyware Protection
5. Have a wall of protection against spyware / adware by installing SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs.
SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources.
SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation and browser hijack attempts. Both have free ongoing updates.


Spyware Removers
6. Install programs for scanning for malware and uninstalling them. Two of the best programs, both are freeware, are :

Spybot Search & Destroy - A 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 SE Personal Edition - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.


Regular Maintenance of PC
7. Finally, invest some time for regular maintenance of your PC. Delete the temporary Internet files, temporary files, cookies etc. Click on Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run the program Disk Cleanup. Follow the instructions.

An alternate freeware software which can be used is CleanUp.

Keep your Registry clean. My favourite software is Registry First Aid. This is not a freeware but a trial version can be downloaded.


System Restore Points
8. Since your PC is currently clean, create a system restore point. A system restore would enable you to revert to the settings on the PC when the restore point was created. It is also a good idea to flush all earlier system restore points which may be containing infected files.

A. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

B. Restart your computer.

C. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

System Restore will now be active again.


Go ahead and enjoy a clean PC !!!!!!!!!!!!!
