Oh, I see! I didn't realize HJT had a delete file on reboot function! Last time I used it, it didn't! Well, I didn't try it, I did it the hard way with windows recovery console. That seemed like a sure thing.

While TeaTimer is an excellent tool for the prevention of spyware, it can sometimes prevent HijackThis from fixing certain things.
Please disable TeaTimer for now until you are clean. TeaTimer can be re-activated once your HijackThis log is clean.
  • Open Spybot Search & Destroy.
  • In the Mode menu click "Advanced mode" if not already selected.
  • Choose "Yes" at the Warning prompt.
  • Expand the "Tools" menu.
  • Click "Resident".
  • Uncheck the "Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of overall system settings) active." box.
  • In the File menu click "Exit" to exit Spybot Search & Destroy
open Hijackthis and do a scan. Please check off the following items:

O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {7697DB96-5DA3-44F2-BC97-AD35E5F4CEDC} - C:\WINDOWS\Help\msvcmp3.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Internet Sweeper] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SWEEPER.EXE /Q
O20 - Winlogon Notify: msvcmp3 - C:\WINDOWS\Help\msvcmp3.dll (file missing)


click FIX CHECKED then close Hijackthis

Reboot and let me know how everything is running.


Thanks,

:tazz:

The PC has been running quite well, no popups at all since msvcmp3.dll was removed. The one item:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Internet Sweeper] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SWEEPER.EXE /Q

was related to Internet Sweeper, a little program that is supposed to clean out the IE cache, and various .tmp files each time the browser closes. I liked it since it seemed to dump everything automatically each time the browser window closed.

I did uninstall it however, since I think that CleanUp will do a better job albeit not automatically.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry about the internet sweeper, I didn't want you to uninstall it. For some reason the note I put in there about this being an option didn't go thru. I was just going to tell you exactly what you said about cleanup!....lol

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

I recommend that you Defrag your computer before setting your Restore points:

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Defragmentor Make sure it set to the proper drive (default should be your main driver) and click on defragment


Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast
AntiVir


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4
Spywareguard
IE/Spyad

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)

Sygate
Kerio
ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox
Opera

If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided. Also read How I got Infected
