Hi,

I am running a PC, Pentium 4 - 3.06GHz, 512 MB RAM, 120GB HDD, Windows XP service pack 2. I got infected a month ago and since then I am trying to get rid of the infection with no success.
I've got the blue screen with the Security Warning:
"A fatal error in IE has occurred at 0028:C0011E36 in VXD VMM(01) + 00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c
*System can not function in normal mode.
Please check your security settings.
* Scan your PC with any available antivirus / spyware remover program to fix the problem."
I have followed all the initial steps (Clean up, AD-aware SE, CWShredder, Spybot S&D, Ewido Security, TM PC cilin, Windows Update). Both Ewido and PC cilin show a clear report (after locating and removing/curing several infected files), but the blue screen is still there.
I have no experience at all with PC "nursing", I even think that in my efforts to get rid of the infection I did it more harm than good! I would therefore appreciate your kind help...
Please see the following "HijackThis" log:

Hiya Mathilda, first off before we get rid of Trojan.Smitfraud we will remove NewDotNet first.

First, Download LSPFix.exe to a convenient location. Do NOT run this program. This is only to be used if you lose Internet Access after removing NewDotNet.

To Get rid of NewDotNet, go to:

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following:

New.Net Applications or New.Net Domains (anything that says New.Net)

If it is not there, go here and follow Procedure 4: NewDotNet.

In the event that you lose Internet access after removing New.Net, please double-click LSPFix.exe that you downloaded earlier. You will see 2 panels. If there is any file listed in the "Remove" panel on the right-side, leave it as is and just click "Finish>>" then reboot your computer and you should now have access to the Internet. If nothing is listed under the "Remove Panel", DO NOT do anything - just close the program. You will need to use another computer to come back here for further instructions on what to do.

Very good, you did it well :tazz:

++++++++++++++++++++++
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.

This will likely be a few step process in removing the malware that has infected your system. I encourage you to stick with it and follow my directions as closely as possible so as to avoid complicating the problem further.

You have a nasty CoolWebSearch infection. First we will need to download a few tools that will help us in the removal of your problem.

Please read the instructions for About:Buster then download it to a safe location where you can easily remember it.
Please Download the stand-alone version of CoolWebShredder
Download Cleanup.

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.
Do NOT run it yet.

Save all of these files somewhere you will remember like to the Desktop.

Run the CleanUp! installer. You dont need to do anything with it right now. Do NOT run it yet.

Update About:Buster
  • Unzip the contents of AboutBuster.zip and an AboutBuster directory will be created.
  • Navigate to the AboutBuster directory and double-click on AboutBuster.exe.
  • Click "OK" at the prompt with instructions.
  • Click "Update" and then "Check For Update" to begin the update process.

  • Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
  • Please locate if they exist

    • Serials 3000
    • Free Download Manager
  • Click Uninstall
  • Confirm with OK
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.

Please run about:buster by RubbeRDuckY:
  • Click Begin Removal.
  • Click Yes to allow it to shutdown explorer.exe.
  • It will begin to check your computer for malicious files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so.
  • When it has finished, click Save Log. Make sure you save it as I may need a copy of it later.
  • Reboot your computer into safe mode again
In the event you get an error message then do the following:
Start > Run then paste this in the dialog box

regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\COMCTL32.OCX



Run about:buster again following the same instructions as above, this time without the restart at the end

Run about:buster again following the same instructions as above, this time without the restart at the end

Now run CWShredder. Click I Agree, then Fix and then Next, let it fix everything it asks about.

Through Windows Explorer, delete the following folder(s) or files(s) if they exist (in bold):
  • C:\Program Files\Serials3k\ <-- whole folder
  • C:\Program Files\Free Download Manager\ <-- whole folder
Finally, Empty Recycle Bin


Now run CleanUp!. Click CleanUp and allow it to delete all the temporary files. Reboot your computer into normal windows.

Please run an on-line virus scan at Kaspersky Online Scan or if that doesnt work, you can have an On-line scan at this sites:
Trend Micro or Panda Scan or BitDefender.
(Please post the results of the scan(s) in your next reply)

After all that, please post back with how things went as well as all the logs requested and a new HiJackThis log.

Good Luck!

Hiya Mathilda,

;) Very very good! You did an awesome job, nicely done! :D
Are there any more problems, how is your system running?

Reset IE settings:
  • Open Internet Explorer
  • from the menu bar, TOOLS > RESET WEB SETTINGS
  • put a check mark on Also reset my home page
  • click YES
  • re-Open IE to take effect
You can now remove these tools:

LSPfix.exe
NewDotNet uninstall tool

Congratulations! :) your system is CLEAN!

WinXP Reset & All-Clean1

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.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

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 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
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?
