This is my first experience with malware and I'm really having fun. No really, this has been a pretty interesting experience.

Yesterday, I made friends with PSguard. I found my way over to this fabulous site :tazz: and followed your directions for malware. The various checks turned up a few trojans and PSguard files which were then deleted. All tests are coming back clean now, and I haven't seen any more overt virus activity, but I'm having a few probs still:
1. Windows will only shut down after I click restart/shut down/ctrl+alt+del multiple times or give up and push the power button. When I do reboot, scan disk now always runs, stating windows has been shut down improperly--no matter how it's been shut down. There are no errors found on the disk.
2. IE is still shutting down frequently, and particularly if I open the browser and allow it to load my home page (Yahoo). Error in kernel32.dll or something. I can use many other sites without problems though.
3. Occasionally I get an AdAware popup stating that a virus was detected, usually in a RESTORE/TEMP file. The only button that works for me in the popup is 'continue' however--I can't heal, delete or anything else. Then nothing shows up when I run AVG.
Got any ideas? I appreciate all the help I've already gotten from the site.

Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

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, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


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


Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.
  • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
  • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
  • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
  • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!
Save the scan log and post it along with a HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.
Let us know if any problems persist.

Regards,

Thank you for your reply.
I am unable to install Ewido however--I get a message that says "ewido needs Win 2000 and above" Shouldn't this work with Millenium?

As with anything I seem to do with this 'puter lately, some of this didn't work very well for me.

As for the panda scan, I don't know if they have updated since you used it last or if I missed something, but there was no way to do a full system scan all at once and there is no place to check autoclean. I had to choose each device separately to scan, and there was never any option to remove the stuff that was found.

The scan of 'my computer' turned up 2 trojans the first time and 1 tojan the two following times that I tried to run it, but whenever it gets to my E drive (recently installed LG cd-rw) the scan comes to a halt. I couldn't save the log from it b/c of this.

The panda active scan log of my hard drive is posted here.

That looks better.


Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O2 - BHO: BPIEInterface Class - {B40A6610-1D16-11D3-80B2-005004994DA2} - C:\PROGRA~1\ICHOOSE\BPIECL~1.DLL

Then reboot and let me know how your computer is baheving.

So far, so good. I am still having trouble with DUN on occasion and having general ISP problems, but I think they are just that--ISP problems. Thank you very much, I really appreciate the help.
