Hi there,

I have followed all the instructions prior to posting my HJT log below.

Also refer to attached MW Word file [I think its attached, I can't see it anywhere after attaching].

I have a black wallpaper, constantly flashing (half screen, white screen, constant access to hard drive, windows message related to spyware). Also various screen messages, tray icon c/w speech bubble.

Any assistance appreciated.

Update 10 hours later:
This seems to be a very similar problem to that described at http://www.geekstogo...showtopic=57895.

I am also getting a McAfee message related to the Alemod virus, but McAfee does not seem to be able to remove it or quarantine it.

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :tazz:

I see you are running Hijackthis from your desktop. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and move hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.

Once you have Hijackthis running from a within a folder please reboot and post a new hijackthis log.

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

Once in Safe mode, follow these steps:
  • 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.
  • Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove everything that it finds.

  • Run Ewido:
    • Click on scanner
    • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    • During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
    • When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK.
    • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
    • Save the report to your desktop.

Hi Sam,

Followed your instructions. Ran Ad-Aware SE without doing the update.

Lots of gremlins were found. Things are looking up!

The PSGuard tray icon has gone. McAfee does not seem to be picking up the Alemond virus any more.

The black flashing screen and the constantly appearing windows messages have gone. The constant access to hard disk has gone.

Wallpaper is now blue, but the right 3/4 side of it is white (about where the PSGuard flashing messages used to be). I have not tried replacing the wallpaper with anything else yet. UPDATE: Got rid of the white section. It seemed to be due to "My Current Home Page loaded under Active Desktop", and my current home page is set to blank.

Couple of things I could not do as per your instructions:

Item 1: The following option was not available, presumably coz I am running Win2K Professional ?
Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Website > Uncheck "Security Info" if present

Item 2 : The Panda Scan did not give me an autoclean box to check:
Reboot back into normal mode and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!

Good progress! :tazz:

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then close all other windows--you should only see HijackThis on your Desktop--and click the Fix Checked button.

OK Sam,

Its been a few days, and I've been away ...........

But ........... good news.

All the problems now seem to be gone, so thanks very much for your assistance.

I have attached the updated the HiJackThis log below.

The only issue I have at the moment is with the computer taking quite a while to boot (about 3.5-4 minutes [the time split between [in the following] getting past BIOS load / a dash in left hand top corner / a cursor in the middle of the screen]. This seems to have started occurring after I loaded SP4 and iTunes, but before I got into all the Spyware woes. It is also taking a lot longer to shutdown (saving your settings ....), though nowhere near as long as the startup.

Regards,

pfq

I think I can help with that. :)

Here are some optional fixes you can make with Hijackthis. They are not malware. These are programs that run automatically at startup. They are not necessary to be run at every startup and hog your computer's resources. Fixing these will improve boot up time and performance.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Synchronization Manager] mobsync.exe /logon
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dell QuickSet] C:\Program Files\Dell\QuickSet\quickset.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [bascstray] BascsTray.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DVDSentry] C:\WINNT\System32\DSentry.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CreateCD50] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CreateCD\CreateCD50.exe" -r
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdaptecDirectCD] "C:\Program Files\Roxio\Easy CD Creator 5\DirectCD\DirectCD.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Internat.exe] internat.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Digital Line Detect.lnk = C:\Program Files\Digital Line Detect\DLG.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE




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.

Thanks Sam,

Running Win2K Professional.

Part of my problem at startup appears to have been due to a wireless USB mouse. If connected this caused lengthy delays at BIOS load and the blinking cursor top left. These delays do not occur if I boot without the USB mouse wireless receiver inserted. There is still a delay at Windows load (about 1.5mins).

I used HiJackThis to remove:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CreateCD50] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\CreateCD\CreateCD50.exe" -r
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdaptecDirectCD] "C:\Program Files\Roxio\Easy CD Creator 5\DirectCD\DirectCD.exe"

I then switched on SpyBot with TeaTimer, and used HiJackThis to remove:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

SpyBot dtected the registry change and would not allow me to remove this task. I tried turning off SpyBot (from the program tray) and running HiJackThis and fixing it again. This appeared to work, but on reboot I was informed by SpyBot that the removel of this item from the registry had been refused and in running a HiJackThis log the qttask.exe entry is still there.

Should I turn off TeaTimer and try again?

Can I also remove:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [iTunesHelper] C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exe ?? (Someone suggested it might be adding unnecessary overheads)

Again, tks for your help,

pfq

Spybot's Teatimer will block most registry changes, so it's best to disable it and then make the fixes with Hijackthis. Once you reboot you can turn it back on.

You can research 04 startup entries in Hijackthis at either of these two sites to find out more info about what is starting up automatically.

http://castlecops.com/StartupList.html
http://www.bleepingc...r.com/startups/

All of the ones you mentioned are fine to fix.

Hi Sam,

I have removed all those 04 entries mentioned.

Still having a slow startup, but its a bit strange. If I shut down the computer (its a Dell D600 latitude laptop) by pressing the power switch OR if I shut it down when the login box appears during startup, THEN, the next time I startup the desktop appears in 50secs (although it takes another minute or so for all the programs to load into the bottom right tray).

When it takes a while to load, but the desktop finally appears, the bottom right tray is full of all the programs that loaded (but the sequence that network icons appear in the tray is reversed to that mentioned above).

So it seems in both cases to take about 2.5-3 mins to get everthing finally loaded, but in some cases the desktop appears sooner (and I can then start other programs while these are still loading).

Any thoughts?

Regards,

pfq

Take a look at this program.

You may have to play around with it to get the startup just how you want, but I think it will do what you want it to.
