Dear Sir or Madam,

Occasionally When running IE (6) in the past few weeks, another IE window will pop up and automatically load one of a number of websites. Most frequently it loads a site called "Winfixer" or "Allmax Travel".

This started a few weeks ago after I visited a number of free video game sites some of which required that I install a driver. Normally, I decline any site that requires me to install anything; however, I was particularly bored, so I agreed. (I now regret that.)

A few other notes. I have SP1 not SP2 or SP1a. I've tried installing SP2 before, but all it does is result in me losing my internet connection and a massive slow down of my computer. After trying a few times to install SP2, I decided to just stick w/ SP1. Also, I read the report on Microsoft's support site that suggests that if one has SP1 there is no need to install SP1a. I've excerpted their comments from http://support.micro...om/?kbid=813926 :

"if you are already running Windows XP SP1. Microsoft does not recommend that you install SP1a if you are already running SP1.

Windows XP SP1a is the same as Windows XP SP1 except that the Microsoft virtual machine (VM) is removed in SP1a."

Also, I've followed your instructions as best as possible b/f posting the HTF. While running Adware it pointed out that I had a program called Alexa which may be a security risk. However, I don't believe this is the source of the problem and is only an issue if one clicks on the "Show Related Links" option under the "Tools" menu of IE (http://www.imilly.com/alexa.htm). For this reason I left it.

As well, when running Trojan Scanner it detected the following files:

Found trojan file: C:\Program Files\SBC Self Support Tool\bin\closeAll.exe (Dialer.Dis.100)
Found trojan file: C:\WINDOWS\browser.exe (Dialer.Dis.100).

I know what the SBC support tool is and did not delete it; however, I do not know what the second file is. I worry that it might be an important file that the Scanner mistook for a malicious one. Any clarification you could offer would be helpful.

Let me apologize in advance if I've forgotten something. I am not computer savvy at all. Below is the HJT log.

Thank you,
Sayeed

Thanks and good work. However I do not require the list at this time.

Your system is infected by the VUNDO trojan
  • 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\System32\cbaww.dll
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: cbaww - C:\WINDOWS\System32\cbaww.dll



  • Once they all have a check next to them, click the FIX CHECKED button, then EXIT 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
Regards,

Trevuren

Dear Trevuren,

Thanks for your help. I've followed your instructions, and both items that you mentioned in point 7 of your prevous post I found and checked off. The HJT log followed by the VundoFix log are below.

There is one thing that may or may not be worth mentioning. Normally, I use a selective start up in Windows; however, for the ffirst HJT log, I followed your website's instructions and did a normal start up and loaded everything that was on my computer. In the HJT log below, however, I'd set my computer back to it's selective start up. Might this cause a problem, i.e., perhaps something was misssed either by the Vundo Fix or by HJT? My question is should I load all startup items and then run Vundo Fix and HJT.

Thank you for your help, and sorry for all the questions.

There is no need to run the Vundo Fix again. However I do need to to enable all startup items until your system is cleared up. Please enable all items and post a fresh HJT log.


Thanks,

Trevuren

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.
  • First we need to make all files and folders VISIBLE:
    • Go to start>control panel>folder options>view (tab)
    • Choose to "show hidden files and folders,"
    • Uncheck the "hide protected operating system files" and the "hide extensions for know file types" boxes.
    • Close the window with ok
  • Please RUN HijackThis.
    . Click the SCAN button to produce a log.

  • Place a check mark beside each one of the following items:

    O9 - Extra button: Related - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Show &Related Links - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm


  • Now with all the items selected, and all windows closed except for HJT, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window.

  • Reboot Your System in Safe Mode

    How to use the F8 method to Start Your Computer in Safe Mode

    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
    • Press Enter.
  • Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and DELETE them (if they are present):

    C:\WINDOWS\web<<Folder


  • Exit Explorer, and REBOOT BACK INTO NORMAL MODE

  • Finally, RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everything looks now.
Regards,

Trevuren

Your log looks good. If you have no more malware-related problems that you are aware of, just give me the OK and we can start the final but essential cleanup procedures.

Dear Trevuren,

I haven't seen any pop ups or redirected pages yet. I assume/hope all maleware issues are resolved. I have a few questions. I currently run NAV and have my connection firewalled, but beyond this what can I do? Should I try and update to SP2? Is zone alarm worth using?

Okay. I think we can go to the clean up.

Thanks,
Sayeed

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.

2. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
  • Left click on "System Restore Tab"
  • Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Left click on "Apply"
TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Click on "Apply"
Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

Make sure you keep your Windows OS current by visiting Windows update
regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. With out these you are leaving the backdoor open.

I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My Favorite)

Regards,

Trevuren
