Hi,
A couple of days ago I started getting popups that say "Your computer may be running slowly... it is recommended that you install WinFixer 2005" and other things like that. Right before I got the first popup, my computer was running REALLY slow, and I did cntrl alt delete, and the CPU usage was at 100%. So I'm guessing that the WinFixer2005 popups were making my computer run this slow so they think someone sees this popup that says "Your computer running slow??" and they think they've got an answer... but it's really a problem!

Anyways, I've seen people post their "Hijack this" log on here, and I am not sure what this is or how people can help me by seeing this? Could someone explain?

Is this really the only thing I can do (post my HJT log) to get help with this problem? I would appreciate ANY input as I would like to get rid of this WinFixer 2005 crap RIGHT AWAY.

I'm currently using Aluria Security Center (Spyware Eliminator) and NoAdware.

Thanks!!!

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.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

I have decided to reinstall Windows XP Home on my laptop because this process on your forum seems like it will take me a long time, and I need my computer to be working faster again ASAP because I have a lot of homework and such to do. Thanks for your help anyway.....

The only real reason I don't want to reinstall Windows is because I have done so many Windows updates since I installed windows the last time. It seems like when I reinstall Windows and go to the Windows website, it does not show all the updates that I had done in the past. Can you tell me if there IS a place to go to get all these old updates in one place and just do them all at once? Thanks....

Oh, also... that Windows service pack 1a install.... how come I hadn't gotten that update in the past if I have SP2? Is that something I should go back and install after I reinstall Windows? Thanks.

I apologize to you. That was my mistake, I misread your log. If you have SP2 then you are fine.

That being said, the fix for your problem is basically just one step and it has a very high success rate. Here it is, follow it if you wish.


Please download VundoFix.zip to your desktop.
  • Double-click VundoFix.zip and extract it to your C:\ directory.
  • Copy the instructions below and paste them into Notepad for reference.
    • All other windows need to be closed while doing this fix!
  • Navigate to the new folder C:\VundoFix
  • Double click on KillVundo.bat
    • When it starts running it will tell you that you need an active internet connection then ask you to press any key once you do.
  • Please press any key to continue.
  • Wait for HiJackThis to open.
  • When HiJackThis opens, click Do a system scan only. Place a check next to the following items, if found:



    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {827DC836-DD9F-4A68-A602-5812EB50A834} - C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB885835_0$\dllras.dll
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: dllras - C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB885835_0$\dllras.dll
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: oleabr - C:\WINDOWS\msagent\intl\oleabr.dll


  • Once they all have a check next to them, click the FIX CHECKED button, then close HiJackThis.
You will once again be prompted to press any key. Upon doing so this time you will receive a "Blue Screen Of Death". Don't worry, this is normal! Let the computer reboot. If it doesn't boot straight to windows, manually turn the computer off and then back on.

Once the computer is rebooted post a new HiJackThis log as well as the contents of vundofix.txt which can be found in this folder: C:\VundoFix

Hi - It seems that my computer is running faster. The CPU usage is no longer at 100% all of the time. That Winfixer popup that usually comes up when I reboot did not come up, either.
Here is a fresh HiJackThis log:

********Besides Winfixer 2005 popups, recently I had noticed other things wrong with my computer like when I would search for something on the internet, "Search the web" would hijack my browser... is this fixed also? THANKS so much!

So do the results look good?

Thank you! :tazz:

That looks like a clean log to me! :tazz:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
