Save it to your desktop.
DO NOT run it yet.

Download dsrfix.zip
Save it to your desktop.
  • Unzip dsrfix.zip and extract it to your desktop.
  • This will create a new folder on your desktop named dsrfix.
  • Do Not open that folder yet.
Please download APT and unzip the contents to a new folder on your desktop.
  • Open the folder you just created and click on apt.exe and search in the window for C:\WINDOWS\System32\yvaqpck.exe.
  • Open your C:\Windows\system32 folder and search for yvaqpck.exe.
    Don't delete it yet, just leave the system32 folder open so you can see the bad file.
  • In APT again, Select C:\WINDOWS\System32\yvaqpck.exe and Click Kill3
  • Then immediately delete C:\WINDOWS\System32\yvaqpck.exe from your system32 folder.

To reboot into SafeMode with Windows XP, you can follow these steps from Microsoft:

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start tapping press F8 key.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.exe.
Click "Next" in the setup, then make sure "Run Nailfix" is checked and click "Finish".
Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.

Running CleanUp
  • Start CleanUp by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
  • When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
  • Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
  • Now place a checkmark next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
    • Delete Cookies
      This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies, at this point removing cookies is a good idea
    • Empty Recycle Bins
    • Delete Prefetch files
    • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click OK
  • Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
  • When asked to reboot system select No
  • Close CleanUp
Finally, restart your computer back into Normal Mode and please post a new HJT log, as well as the ewido report log from the Ewido scan by using Add Reply

Why was there two logs? :) good news it looks much better now. The nail infection got back, we will run the tool again. :tazz:

Be sure to View Hidden and System Files.
  • Open the folder where you saved APT, then click on apt.exe and search in the window for C:\WINDOWS\System32\tulhvlu.exe.
  • Open your C:\Windows\system32 folder and search for tulhvlu.exe.
    Don't delete it yet, just leave the system32 folder open so you can see the bad file.
  • In APT again, Select C:\WINDOWS\System32\tulhvlu.exe and Click Kill3
  • Then immediately delete tulhvlu.exe from your system32 folder.
Close APT.

Download Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner plug-in HERE
  • Install the VX2 Cleaner
  • Start Ad-Aware SE
  • Go to "Plug-ins"
  • Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click "Run Plugin"
  • If your computer isn't infected, click "Close".
If your computer is infected
  • Select "Clean system"
  • Close Ad-Aware.
To reboot into SafeMode with Windows XP, you can follow these steps from Microsoft:

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start tapping press F8 key.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Once in Safe Mode, please double-click on nailfix.exe.
Click "Next" in the setup, then make sure "Run Nailfix" is checked and click "Finish".
Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

Now open ewido and do a scan of your system.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
  • Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop or a location where you can find it easily.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lrnmnop] C:\WINDOWS\System32\tulhvlu.exe r
O21 - SSODL: DCOM Server - {2C1CD3D7-86AC-4068-93BC-A02304BB8C34} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\dcom_9.dll
O21 - SSODL: UUylpQGDBQ - {584C8EEA-F2E6-2440-7F07-0FF475BC4A47} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\divu.dll (file missing)
O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe


Close all open windows except for HJT, then click the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

Enable show hidden files and folders:

* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK

Through Windows Explorer, delete the following folder(s) or files(s) if they exist (in bold):
  • C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\divu.dll
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\dcom_9.dll
Finally, Empty Recycle Bin

Now run the CleanUp program:

*IMPORTANT NOTE*
CleanUp deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups.
If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp

Running CleanUp
  • Start CleanUp by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
  • When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
  • Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
  • Now place a checkmark next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
    • Delete Cookies
      This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies, at this point removing cookies is a good idea
    • Empty Recycle Bins
    • Delete Prefetch files
    • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click OK
  • Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
  • When asked to reboot system select No
  • Close CleanUp
Finally, restart your computer back into Normal Mode.

Open Ad-aware again then do a second full scan. Remove all it finds.

Have an On-line scan at this site: Panda Scan, save the results then post it.

THINGS TO POST:
1. New HijackThis log
2. Ewido report.
3. Panda Scan result.

We will clean up what has been left. :)

I think your hijackthis log was taken from Safe Mode, am I right? Please reboot in Normal Mode then post a new hijackthis log.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Reboot in SAFE MODE. (How to boot in Safe Mode...)

Be sure to View Hidden and System Files.

Through Windows Explorer, delete the following folder(s) or files(s) if they exist (in bold):
  • C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\RICK TIPTON\APPLICATION DATA\Sskknwrd.dll
  • C:\WINDOWS\weirdontheweb_topc.exe
  • C:\PROGRAM FILES\Aprps\ <-- whole folder
  • C:\PROGRAM FILES\SurfAccuracy\ <-- whole folder
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\i\ <-- whole folder
  • C:\msprss32.exe
  • C:\msset32.exe
  • C:\WINDOWS\bcsjwnn.exe
Finally, Empty Recycle Bin

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Open Internet Explorer, go to Favorites > Technology > then delete this URL

C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\RICK TIPTON\FAVORITES\TECHNOLOGY\Adware Remover.lnk

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
reboot back in Normal Mode.

Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

Location 1: HERE
Location 2: HERE

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!
++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Tell me how your system is running now.

Open up NOTEPAD, then copy & paste the follwing codes (starting from REGEDIT4). Save it on desktop as fixme.reg. Choose file types as ALL FILES.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent\Post Platform]
"SV1"=""


Now double-click fixme.reg then allow it to merge to the system.
(NOTE: You can delete this file afterwards.)


You can now remove these tools:

SpSeHjfix
dsrfix.zip
APT
nailfix
L2Mfix tool

Congratulations! :) your system is CLEAN!

WinXP Reset & All-Clean1

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. 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.
2. Restart your computer.

3. 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.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visitmonthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scannersweekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

SP2 is very good however if your system is dragging and some programs doesn't go good on it SP1a would be a good choice then:
