hello 2dlking,

Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon (looks like a target) and click on Security Agents Status (Enabled) and click on Disable Real-time Protection. To re enable it, you follow the same steps but click on Enable Real-time Protection.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
RIGHT-CLICK [ HERE ] and Save As (In IE it's "Save Target As") in order to download DelDomains.inf to your desktop.
To use: RIGHT-CLICK DelDomains.inf and select: Install (no need to restart)
Note: This will remove all entries in the "Trusted Zone" and "Ranges" also.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Open up the Host program folder then double-clicking Hoster.exe.
  • Click back-up Host files
  • then click Restore orginal host files
  • close the program.
reference is on post#12

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Please close all remaining windows, disconnect from the internet, open HijackThis then click SCAN. Please put a check on the following items listed below:

O1 - Hosts: localhost 127.0.0.1

Make sure to double check the items you have selected, then click Fix Checked.

reboot your computer
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
  • Open HijackThis
  • go to Config, then Misc Tools
  • Open Uninstall Manager, then click Save List...
  • Post the results here
  • close HJT
Open up NOTEPAD, then copy & paste the following commands. Save it to desktop as findpf.bat. Save it as file type all files.

@echo off
cd\
dir %System Root%\PROGRA~1 > pflist.txt
notepad pflist.txt

Now on your desktop double-click findpf.bat then post the results in your next reply.
(NOTE: You can delete this file afterwards.)

hi 2dlking, good job you done it well ;)

you can now remove these tools:

silent runners
rkfiles
nailfix utility
dsrfix
hoster
deldomains
cwshredder
L2Mfix
findjobs.bat
about:buster
killbox
findpf.bat

:) :) :) :ph34r: :) :tazz: :) :) :tazz: :tazz: :ph34r:


Congratulations! :) your system is CLEAN!

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.
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.
  • MVPS Hosts File The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known AD sites, etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
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.

Internet Explorer is NOT the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend: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.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klein: So how did I get infected in the first place?
