Hello - and thank you for your efforts in helping us geek wanta be's.

I have followed all the instructions that you suggest (CleanUp, Ad-awareSE, CWshredder, Spybot S&D, Ewido Security Suite, Trend Housecall, TrojanHunter, and Windows Update) and it got rid of almost all problems except one (that I know about) which is:

I repeatedly get this pop up: System Warning - system performance notice - telling me I may be infected and so on.

Also I have this notice - a yellow triangle in my sys tray that flashes and then pops a - System Alert - spyware detected message.

I'm sure this is all sypware or or malware or something thats not supposed to be there - so I would appreciate any help you can give.

following is the HighjackThis Log and ewido security suite scan report.

Thanks again for the help you offer.

Welcome to the Geeks To Go forum.:tazz:


Step 1

Configure Windows to Show all hidden files & folders and ensure you're familiar with rebooting into Safe Mode.

Download SmitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Download and install the trial version of Ewido Security Suite from here.
Configure the program correctly by following the instructions here and then close the program after updating the reference files.
Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow the download and setup instructions here.
Otherwise, check for updates and download any new reference files before closing the program. We'll use it in Safe Mode later.


Step 2

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode - Very Important !!

Run HJT again and checkmark the boxes next to the following:-

Close ALL OPEN WINDOWS/BROWSERS and click Fix Checked


Step 3

Open the SmitRem folder and 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.

Step 4

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

Step 5

Now open Ewido Security Suite:

Click on Scanner
Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK
When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK.
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.

Now close ewido security suite.

Warning: While the scan is in progress, do NOT open any folders or the Windows Control Panel !!

Step 6

Next go to your Control Panel and click Display | Desktop | Customise Desktop | Website | Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, and do a full system scan.
Make sure the autoclean box is checked!
Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log and Ewido Log in your next reply to THIS thread. Let me know if any problems persist.
