We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

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.

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

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.
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.

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

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Normal Mode.

Post a fresh HJT log along with the Ewido scan report and the contents of the smitfiles.txt log by using Add Reply.

Hello again tampabelle.... :tazz:

Followed all your instructions as you described and posted the log below of the HJT log below. The Ewido didnt pick up any infections and although the scan report was saved to the desk top in safe mode once the PC had been rebooted in normal mode it didnt show on there and wasnt found after a search. The smitfiles.txt log appears to be of one done yesterday but likewise the latest scan was done in safe mode and seems not to have saved the latest log on the c drive i thought it best to send u what i had rather than nothing at all.

Hi Tampabelle, well all seems to be well from what i can see. Xsoftspy and spybot has since been ran and all evidence of psguard seems to have disappeared. Unless anything happens within the week i'll leave you in peace and just contact you one more time next week to confirm that this continues to be the case.

Thank you sooooooooo much for your help/advice and support i'll definately be recommending this site to others. :tazz:

Let us clean up your PC a little bit.


Delete the following programs and the associated folders, which you downloaded during the cleaning up process -

smitrem.exe
smitrem folder


Uninstall Ewido as it is a trial product and the trial period will expire shortly. Conflicts can arise between multiple anti-virus programs and can severely hamper the performance of the PC.



Run Hijack This and click on scan. The following items need to be fixed -

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MsnMsgr] "C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\MsnMsgr.Exe" /background


Close all windows other than Hijack This. Check the boxes next to above items and click on Fix checked.

This will not delete the programs from your PC. This will only disable the programs from running at Start up and result in a faster PC. You can always run the programs manually by using the respective exe files or the shortcuts. If you use this program first thing after startup, then you can leave it.

After this, please visit Windows security and critical updates and get all the updates and patches and install them on your PC.

Reboot the PC and post a fresh HJT log.
