Recently I suffered the HCLEAN intrusion, aka COOLBAR SEARCH (or something like that). I looked for a lot of antispyware proggies but nothing could eliminate this troyan.
Yesterday night I discovered this forum and the thread http://www.geekstogo...showtopic=50745
In despite of was hard for me (think that people must to adquire "intermediate" knowledge for execute), the fine (and prompt!) response from CRUSTYOLDBLOKE to STISM was medicine for my affected system (windows XP).
After ran silent runners, fixed HKLM/.../windowsNT/.../WinLogon by your archive (fixware.reg), then RKFILES and finally Killbox, I experienced a very better speed rate in my notebook.
After that (about six hours of work) I ran the latest version of HiJackthis and the results was fine, so CRUSTY I'm grateful and my respects for your good skill and -specially- your desire to share.

However I'm concerned about one entry that changes its name in each session (in this, the name is "dmfoi.exe", located at system32).

I cuted/pasted the HiJackthis log (look dmfoi.exe value, but in other sessions this one changes its name, taking other executable from system32).

Experts please tell me if this log looks ok or not, and if you can, tell me what about this curiosly "change of name".

Sorry for the wait.

Rescan with HijackThis. Close all programmes leaving only HijackThis running. Place a checkmark or tick against the following:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dmfoi.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\dmfoi.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [runload32] MsNetHelper.exe


Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

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

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files, and delete them:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\dmfoi.exe
MsNetHelper.exe

Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.

Crusty, your response was prompt and fine. Anyway I executed almost the same instructions before your post. Also checked the system with PANDA ANTIVIRUS ONLINE AND TRENDMICRO ONLINE and results was good.
I executed CWSHREDDER for some additional suspicious entries and then I ran DISKCLEANER for clean all; and REGSEEKER for clean the Registry.
However I needed execute HiJackThis one more time for fix some values that you reffered.
So I followed your instructions and this is the result on HJT:

I think that this log is good, but I'll appreciate your more qualified opinion.

Finally I have a couple of questions:

1. What do you think about Windows XP Service Pack 2, I recently tried to download from Microsoft Update but I couldn't do the job (maybe the site is overcharged?). Tried to update my system a lot of times but nothing, so tired, I decided to inactivate the automatic update and, since one year ago, I work with Sygate Personal Firewall -in combination with Norton Antivirus 2005- with good results (low attack rate and good performance).
Since Microsoft insists in the critical need to patch WinXP with SP2, I'm confused because -in despite of the alert- I have not several troubles without the update.
In my opinion, since the vulnerabilities rests on the system' opened ports listening (like 80, 8080, etc.) the good skill closing or making stealth those ones will be the most guarantee for a secure computer. I frequently visit the site www.grc.com (SHIELDS UP!), a great and secure site for analysing open or not stealth ports, and in general the results are fine for me (now I passed the test with top conditions, all ports are STEALTH: again, SPECIAL THANKS CRUSTY AMIGO!)

2. In despite of the good results, I'm experiencing some low velocity over some processes (random, maybe the first open of IExplorer, Access, etc.) Curiosly, after the "first opening" of program, the re-opening is fast (?). Is possible that some entry showed in this HJT log produce some low performance (or it's simply responsability of NORTON AV? :tazz: )

Concerning the thread http://www.geekstogo...showtopic=50745, you're wrong Crusty, YOU'RE SUPERHUMAN (I will eliminate all the cryptonyte for defend you :) )

Well CRUSTY that's all, sorry for my language, thank you again and I must to say that you'r a real GAUCHO (in my country, this expression is for people who always try to help).

Your log is fine, but you really must get at least service pack 1a.. Please try and validate your windows version and try updating gain, perhaps from another site if you can't do it from Microsoft site.

The speed of computers is a very complex subject and not one where anyone can give a definitive answer without masses of information, but in essence, the more security you have, the slower the PC.

I have never seen the need for another Firewall other than the built-in one in XP. I have used the Gibson Research Centre for many years and always found complete stealth.

Windows SP2 installed as you recommended. The trouble of installation in Windows update was my sygate firewall. I will not use again because SP2 has its own firewall. Well, I'll see the upgrade, thanks for all.
