I've had a problem with spyware/malware before, and now it's on my parents' home computer, and I've recognized a bunch of malicious files on the hijack this log. Here's the scoop:

My sister encountered problems with our computer the morning after she downloaded an ActiveX plug-in to play an online game.

A message popped up saying an error had occurred with Winlogon.exe and it had to shut down, and then a message with an error about the sgtray.exe and a file with lots of numbers and letters popped up, the taskbar disappeared, and the computer shut down.

later, a message from our Sophos AntiVirus indicated access was denied to remove Troj/Cass-A\system32\dist001.exe.

I started the computer in safe mode to avoid it shutting down unexpectedly, and ran Ad-aware to do some initial clean-up. I restarted and ran CleanUp, Ad-aware again,CWShreader, Spybot SD, Trend Micro, etc. I noticed some similar files coming up after Ad-aware finished, including SurfSideKick, ClearSearch, and 180Assistant, which I've had inundate my own computer before. I know I had a tough time getting rid of them completely because they still lurked in my computer even though they appeared to be killed. The only way it got completely clean was through this website, so I hope someone can help my parents' home computer.

The computer is pretty stable right now, adn those other messages haven't popped up again since I ran the scans, but I'm getting very odd pop-ups that I don't usually get. The computer also seems bogged down.

I ran hijack This after the last Ad-aware scan, and I recognize a number of infectious files.

Here is my Hijack This log:

Hi chicagochicklett and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

1. If you haven't logged in go to Geeks to Go and do so. Then proceed to item a.

If you already have logged in, go directly to item a.
  • Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window.
  • In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
  • If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there
2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. Please DELETE your current HJT program from its present location.

4. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click SCAN and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')
  • POST the log into this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren

1. Copy and paste this code box text into a text editor such as Notepad.

2. Save this text as ResetAppInit.reg. Make sure the "Save as type:" is "All Files (*.*)" and save it to your desktop. Include the word REGEDIT4

3. Double-click on ResetAppInit.reg. When it asks you to merge the information to the registry click Yes.


REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
"AppInit_DLLs"=""

4. REBOOT your system.

5. Finally, run HijackThis, click SCAN, produce a LOG and POST it in this thread for review.

Regards,

Trevuren

The download occasionally experiences problems. You may have to try a few times before a connection is available

Download LQfix.exe and place it on your desktop.
  • Doubleclick LQfix.exe and click install.
  • This will create a new folder called LQfix on your desktop.
  • Open the folder and doubleclick ClickThis.bat
  • Follow the prompts on the screen.
  • Your system will reboot afterwards.
Please be patient after reboot, because there is a script running in the background.

Regards,

Trevuren

Okay, I ran into a few problems...

1. When I rebooted in safe mode and went to delete the folders you listed, I was unable to delete The SurfSideKick3 folder in my Program Files. This message came up: "Cannot delete Ssk.exe It is being used by another person or program." That time I had clicked on Administrator after it booted but before it brought me to the desktop. So I rebooted in safe mode again, but clicked on Family as the user, but the same problem occurred. I was able to delete the other ones except pkshonxw.dll because my search had no results for it.

Also, when I rebooted after all that, ewido popped up about 20+ times in a row with 2 messages. One was that Ssk.exe was found, the other was that repairs.dll in my system32 folder was found. And then one pop up said Sskbho.exe was found. I clicked to clean but it just kept popping up.

Here is my HJT log:
