Today I got a flurry of alerts from Norton and Microsoft Antispyware. I ran Norton and came up with a few Aurora things that it did not delete (said "at risk"), and Ewido came up with a whopping 43 things, which it said it cleaned but things keep popping up. Microsoft Antispyware came up with a bunch of entries for SurfsideKick, and various other things I do not know about. Any help in cleaning this up would be much appreciated. Thanks for the hard work! Here is an Ewido report and a HiJack This log:

Not a problem at all. I have been running scans since then (Ad-Aware, Ewido, Microsoft Antispyware, Spybot) and almost without exception have been coming up with stuff. So I think I do still need some help. I will post a fresh HiJack This log tonight. Thanks for your help.

Great, thank you so much for your help. Before I post the logs, I should say that I have been running scans, both in normal and safe mode, diligently since I posted in the hopes that I could get rid of at least some of this stuff. I know, however, that some stuff remains. A lot of the scans are picking up this ABetterInternet (Aurora) thing, and Ewido picks up Trojan.Agent.cp every time. Also, whenever I turn the computer off, I get a box that says "XACRSM.EXE Application failed to initialize because the windows station is shutting down." Also, in safe mode, I attempted to delete "Nail.exe," but it just appears a second later.

Lastly, for my own piece of mind, these logs do not contain anything that would be beneficial to those who wish to do my computer harm, do they? Thanks again for the help, I truly appreciate it.

I'm sorry, I forgot to add something. SurfSideKick kept appearing, especially on Ewido, despite it saying that it was "cleaned up." I finally went to Add/Remove Programs while in Safe Mode and, when I tried to remove it, a box popped up saying to enter a code (that was given) and it would be removed. I did so, and have not heard from it since. Is it really gone taking that simple of a step?!

We have a few infections on your PC. Lets get them one by one.


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

Download about:buster by RubbeRDuckY Here.
Download CWShredder Here.
Download and install CleanUp! Here

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

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.
  • If any updates exist please download them by clicking "Download Update" then click the X to close that window.
  • Now close About:Buster
Update CWShredder
  • Open CWShredder and click I AGREE
  • Click Check For Update
  • Close CWShredder
Boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Please run about:buster by RubbeRDuckY:
  • Click Start and then OK to allow AboutBuster to scan for Alternate Data Streams.
  • 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
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.

Now run CleanUp!Reboot your computer into normal windows.

Please run an on-line virus scan at Kaspersky OnLine Scan or if that doesnt work, you can use TrendMicro 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 the logs requested and a new HiJackThis log.

Thanks again for teh help. Things went pretty well, I think. I already had CleanUp! CW Shredder came up with nothing. I actually ran two scans with Kaspersky - first a "critical" scan then a "my computer scan." The latter scared me greatly when it picked up around 650 infected objects, but all except two were in my Norton quarantine. The two not in there were the two that showed up on the critical scan. After Kaspersky, though, my "Start" button had disappeared, as had the icons in the lower right corner, so I had to reboot before running the HiJack This log. Thanks again for the help! Here are the logs:

*As I am typing this, Microsoft Antispyware has informed that an application change (svcpro) has been allowed (??)

Here are the two logs for About:blank

If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp

Running CleanUp
  • Start CleanUp by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
  • When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
  • Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
  • Now place a checkmark next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
    • Delete Cookies
      This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies, at this point removing cookies is a good idea
    • Empty Recycle Bins
    • Delete Prefetch files
    • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click OK
  • Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
  • When asked to reboot system select No
  • Close CleanUp
Finally, restart your computer back into Normal Mode and please post a new HJT log, as well as the ewido report log from the Ewido scan by using Add Reply

Update the definitions file, to get the latest protection.

So start with Step 6 and continue with the rest of the fix

OK, tried all steps, some had problems. First, C:\WINDOWS\System32\bwpvoik.exe did not show up in APT, nor could I find it anywhere in System 32 folder - could it have changed names? Second, during the Safe Mode HiJack This, "04 - HKLM\..Run: [gqkjmoq] C:\WINDOWS\System 32\bwpvoik.exe" did not show up anywhere. Third, when exploring Windows (step after dsrfix), none of the four files you wanted me to delete showed up after I changed the view to show hidden foldes and uncheckd Hide protected operating system.

Thank you again for your time and effort - there is no way I could do any of this stuff w/o your help. On to the logs!
