Hello, I've followed the instructions in the sticky and have ran all the scans and programs listed in the logs. However, I still get random popups only when browsing. I do not know what is causing it and have ran out of options. I have even tried microsoft anti-spyware and even booted into safe mode to try and elminate all the malware.

Here is the hijack log:

Hello Snipz,

Welcome to GeekstoGo my name is Snickets and I will be helping you today!!!

Please Download the following tools to assist us in removing this infection!
  • Download WinPFind
    • Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"
    • Extract it somewhere you will remember like the Desktop
    • Dont do anything with it yet!
  • Download Track qoo
    • Save it somewhere you will remember like the Desktop
Reboot into Safe Mode
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Doubleclick WinPFind.exe
  • Click "Start Scan"
  • It will scan the entire System, so please be patient!
  • Once the Scan is Complete
  • Go to the WinPFind folder
  • Locate WinPFind.txt
  • Place those results in the next post!
Reboot back to Normal Mode!

Double Click on "Track qoo.vbs"

Note - If you Antivirus has Script Blocking, you will get a Pop Up Windows asking you what to do. Allow this Entire Script to Run, its harmless!

Wait a few seconds and a notepad page will pop up, Copy & Paste those results and place them in the next post along with the results of WinPFind!

Thank you,

Snickets

Thjanks for the help, appreciate it. Here are logs.


WinPFind
WARNING: not all files found by this scanner are bad. Consult with a knowledgable person before proceeding.

If you see a message in the titlebar saying "Not responding..." you can ignore it. Windows somethimes displays this message due to the high volume of disk I/O. As long as the hard disk light is flashing, the program is still working properly.

Hello Snipz,

Sorry for the delay I had some technical problems.

Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

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.

Download Pocket KillBox from here. There is a Direct Download and a description of what the Program does inside this link.

Please open Notepad, and copy/paste the code in the box below into a new text file. Save it as KillQoo.reg (set Filetype to "All Files") and save it on your Desktop.

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\kfytqssk
{09b408ea-fdae-433b-98c7-406966aa9e4a} = C:\WINDOWS\system32\kjaob.dll] 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"winsync"=-


Open Pocket Killbox and Copy & Paste the entries below into the "Full Path of File to Delete"

C:\WINDOWS\LPT$VPN.791
C:\WINDOWS\tsc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\vjnhk.dll
C:\WINDOWS\VPTNFILE.791
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\dsskgff.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\kjaob.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ac3filter.cpl
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dlp4dx.exe


As you Paste each entry into Killbox,place a tick by any of these Selections available

"Delete on Reboot"
"Unregister .dll before Deleting"


Click the Red Circle with the White X in the Middle to Delete!

Restart in Safe Mode and Run those files through Killbox once more to be sure nothing survived.

This time place a tick by any of these selections available

"Standard File Kill"
"End Explorer Shell while Killing File"
"Unregister .dll before Deleting"


Now Locate and DoubleClick KillQoo.reg-> Allow it to merge into the Registry!

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

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winsync] C:\WINDOWS\system32\dlp4dx.exe reg_run

Optional Removals -
Fixing them here will not prevent you from opening them manually as needed. Your choice to fix based on your needs:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Weather] C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe 1
(Description: WeatherBug. If you are using the free version, it is ad-supported. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
(Description: Microsoft Office Startup Assistant. This program loads some Microsoft Office components into memory, even if you're not currently using MS Office. Removing this unnecessary program will free up a considerable amount of system resources.)


Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Restart back in Normal Mode and Post a fresh HijackThis log along with the ewido scan log. Please let me know how your machine is running at this time.

Thank you,

Snickets

Thanks for the help. I think that last bit of instruction finally wiped away all the malware. I've been browsing around and so for no pop ups. Here's the hijackthis log and ewido log.

Also, dunno if it means anything but when I tried to delete O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winsync] C:\WINDOWS\system32\dlp4dx.exe reg_run as you stated in the last post, I could not find the item listed.

Hello Snipz,

A couple more things that I would like to do on this machine.

1.Run hijack this and place a check mark next to the following items.
O16 - DPF: {072039AB-2117-4ED5-A85F-9B9EB903E021} (NowStarter Control) - http://www.clubbox.c.../NowStarter.cab

After checking these entries CLOSE ALL open windows [browsers and programs] EXCEPT HijackThis and click "Fix Checked."
===================================================

2.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.
3.Go to Start>Search and at the top select Tools>Folder Options
Select the View tab
Display the contents of system folders
Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck: Hide protected operating system files
Click on Apply.
Next go to the side of the Search box and select All files and folders. Go down to More advanced options.
Be sure the first three boxes are selected:
Search System folders
Search Hidden Files and folders
Search SubFolders

4.Please delete these files using Windows Explorer(if present):
[b]C:\WINDOWS\system32\dlp4dx.exe[b]

5.Reboot your computer into normal windows at this time.

6.Rescan with hijack this and post a fresh log for me to review.

Thank you,

Snickets

Hello Snipz,

I am glad to hear your computer is running well, please read this post completely as it will help to finish the cleaning and also keep you clean in the future.

Congratulations your log appears to be clean!!!

Please follow these directions below to clear out your system restore points and also make sure to read the prevention tips on how to prevent further infection on your p.c.

1.One last step to take in fixing your computer.
After something like this it is a good idea to purge the Restore Points and start fresh.
To flush the XP System Restore Points:
(Using XP, you must be logged in as Administrator to do this.)
Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter.
When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left.
Check the box labeled Turn Off System Restore.
Reboot.
Go back in and turn System Restore ON. A new Restore Point will be created.

2.Go to Start>Search and at the top select Tools>Folder Options
Select the View tab
Check the following:
Do not Show hidden files and folders
Hide protected operating system files
Click on Apply.
Close out the search window.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera and SlimBrowsers are good as well.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and Spyware Aid's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.

Thank you,

Snickets
