For a couple of weeks now, I've been getting various popups.

1) First a dialog box will popup (I'm looking at one right now), saying "Notice: If your computer has been running slower than usual, it may be infected with Adware or Spyware. Click OK to scan your computer now."

Regardless of whether I click OK or Cancel, a browser will then open with either Winfixer or Winantivirus 2005.

2) At other times, I will just get random other popups advertising for stuff like software, vacations, etc.

I went to the preliminary tests page, as directed above, and performed every step starting with CleanUp!, right on through to Spybot S&D. In the last few steps, where there are several options, I did the following: Trend Housecall online scan, and Trojan Hunter.

Afterwards, I ran Windows update, but already had all Criticals.

I currently have Norton SystemWorks 2004 with a recently lapsed subscription (2-3mths), and Norton Firewall. I've also been running Windows Firewall at the same time, apparently stupidly.

The popups seem to be advancing, and after doing all the above, they seem to have been rolled back to their earlier stage, when I was only getting type 1 from above.

During the scans, Spybot detected 59 BackWeb Lite instances. It did not flag these by default, but I deleted them anyway, after reading on several other forums that it was generally a good idea to do so. Also, Housecall deteced a Dloader.i virus, which it could not clean. I deleted this through Housecall.

This has been going on for about 2 weeks, and the ONLY software changes I can think of during that time are as follows: 1) I installed Google Earth, and 2) Limewire appears to have updated itself to a newer version (1.4.8, I believe).

I have just uninstalled Limewire, and restarted, and just now gotten type 1 popup from above.

Sorry for the very long post, but I figured the more detail...
Anyway, thanks for your time.

Here's my Hijack this Log:

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


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: MSEvents Object - {827DC836-DD9F-4A68-A602-5812EB50A834} - C:\WINDOWS\system\binxml.dll
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: binxml - C:\WINDOWS\system\binxml.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 Sam, My name's Simon. Thanks for the help.
I followed your instructions above. If the new Hijackthis log shows I'm clean, do you have any idea where I might have gotten infected? Do either or the possibilities I mentioned earlier make sense?
And also, what should I do regarding my now-defunct Norton, and dual firewall?
I don't really have the money to get a new Norton subscription, so I was thinking AVG and Windows firewall alone. Any oppinions?
Thanks.

PS: After doing your fix, the shortcut to Internet Explorer that I had on my quicklaunch bar has dissapeared. Any reason for this?

I'm seeing a lot of Vundo infections showing up in the past week or so. I don't know for sure where it comes from, but I can tell you that running Limewire greatly increases your risk for infection.

If Norton is expired and you want to get rid of it, check out the free version of Zone Alarm. It's a very good firewall.

http://www.zonelabs....reeDownload.jsp

And I also highly recommend AVG. It will block many things that Norton doesn't.


I'm not sure why you lost your IE shortcut. I've never heard of that happening as a result of a Vundo Fix. It's an easy fix. Click on the IE desktop icon and drag it down to your Quick Launch bar.



Your log looks clean 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.

:) :)

A couple of last questions:

1) Would you recommend Zone Alarm over Windows Firewall?

2) Do you see any things that could be removed from my HijackThis log to speed up my boot process, because it's gotten quite slow. It's generally around a 5 minute boot these days, although I think replacing Norton with AVG has sped it up a little.

Thanks.

Windows firewall is minimal protection and it's better than nothing, but I do recommend a stronger firewall such as Zone Alarm, especially if you have a broadband connection.

These are some programs running at startup that you can fix with hijackthis. This should speed things up a bit and free up some resources.

O4 - Global Startup: Symantec Fax Starter Edition Port.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\1033\OLFSNT40.EXE


Anytime you want research startup entries on your own you can do so at these sites.

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



Additionally if you have uninstalled Norton(a huge resource hog on your computer) you may still have some of these showing up in your log. Norton doesn't usually uninstall cleanly. You can fix these with hijackthis and notice a significant improvement.

Only fix these if you have uninstalled Norton.

OK, sorry to keep bothering you, but I still have questions.

1) If I install Zone Alarm, which I'm going to, should I then disable Windows Firewall?
I thought I read somewhere on this site that you should only run one of each type of security software at a time (eg, 1 antivirus, 1 firewall, etc).
Is this right?

2) I uninstalled all portions of Norton, except for Norton Utilities, which I still use sometimes. Should I just ditch that too, or keep it.
And if I keep it, do I still want to delete all the Norton-related entries you listed above?

3) Is there any legit version of "system.exe"? Because I read on one page that it is a part of Windows, but on that startup section of CastleCops you referred me to, the only references to system.exe relate it to viruses. System.exe is always listed as a running process in my Windows Task Manager. When I installed ZoneAlarm, it immediately told me system.exe was trying to access the internet, so I dissalowed it for the time being, just to be sure. Should I reallow it?

Thanks.

Yes, that's right. Disable Windows firewall.

That's the thing about Norton, they share a lot of files. You should be able to get rid of all of them except the one that refers to Speed Disk. One way to find out for sure is to uninstall everything Norton, fix all of those lines with Hijackthis, and then just reinstall Norton Utilities.

3) Is there any legit version of "system.exe"? Because I read on one page that it is a part of Windows, but on that startup section of CastleCops you referred me to, the only references to system.exe relate it to viruses.

When I installed ZoneAlarm, it immediately told me system.exe was trying to access the internet, so I dissalowed it for the time being, just to be sure. Should I reallow it?

That's very suspicious. Post a new hijackthis log and I'll take a look.

Thanks.

Here's my new HijackThis log. I've installed ZoneAlarm (Windows Firewall apparently turned itself off when I did this. I don't know if this was done by Zone Alarm of Windows security centre). Also, I've been going through my startup list removing unecessary items, though I've been checking them carefully with the two startup databases you gave me. This is how I noticed system.exe. So, if you notice some startup items missing, that's why.

Thanks again.

I don't see anything malicious in your log.

Please run Panda Online Virus Scan
  • Make sure it is set to clean automatically.
  • There may be files that this scan will not remove.
  • Please include that information in your next post.

Reboot and post a new hijackthis log and the info from your virus scan.

OK, below is my Pandascan log.

What I find interesting is that I ran it before I ever got help from you, and it didn't find the Vundo files. Now it has supposedly found them and fixed them, after I fixed them myself with your instructions.

However, I don't see anything there about system.exe, although I don't know if it would turn up under that name. Also, Zone Alarm has been keeping me from accessing the internet until I allowed "Spooler Subsystem." Is this a problem?

Also, Zone Alarm has been keeping me from accessing the internet until I allowed "Spooler Subsystem." Is this a problem?

That's ok to allow that process. It's for your printer.

While system.exe didn't show up Panda did find a couple viruses. I'd like to see what turns up with Ewido.

Please download Ewido Security Suite it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Then click on Start Update
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
http://www.ewido.net...wnload/updates/

Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • While the scan is in progress you will be prompted 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.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close ewido security suite.


Reboot your computer and post a new hijackthis log and the log from Ewido.

OK, I'm moving apartments today, and will be without the internet until the 13th, so I will have to wait until then to do this.
In the meantime, could you let me know, should I disable AVG when I'm running the Ewido scan?
Thanks again for all the help, this is hugely appreciated.

No need to disable AVG when you run Ewido. They get along pretty well. :tazz:

Just post again when you can. I'll be around.

OK, I just ran Ewido.

It removed the following:

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{B37680B2-BA0A-4E5D-BF30-83E44C588624}\RP484\A0164426.DLL -> Spyware.Virtumonde : Cleaned without backup
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{B37680B2-BA0A-4E5D-BF30-83E44C588624}\RP484\A0164428.DLL -> Spyware.Virtumonde : Cleaned without backup
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{B37680B2-BA0A-4E5D-BF30-83E44C588624}\RP484\A0164429.DLL -> TrojanDownloader.ConHook.k : Cleaned without backup

It also removed a bunch of cookies, which I didn't bother posting.

How should I proceed from here? Did it get the stuff that PandaScan was unable to fix?
