Hi,

Please Help!!! Something was downloaded to my computer while surfing without my consent and I used the system snapshot function on SpywareBlaster. Now, I have noticed many weird registry entries of websites under My Computer\HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains, the first few of which are 008i.com, 008k.com, 00hq.com, 0190-dialers.com, 02pmnzy5eo29bfk4.com, and so on (although there may be more elsewhere in the registry). Some are definitely spyware related, and there are many smut entries, as well as CoolWebSearch ones (bummer).

Secondly, my SpywareBlaster can't be accessed anymore, and my AdAware SE Personal has trouble updating.

I also have a new toolbar which from left to right is "(cross) Remove Toolbar (Textbox) Search Gambling Internet Pharmacy Finacne Insurance (and one minimised called Adult)" This appears in IE windows and navigating through the computer (e.g. in control panel). This may be related to another problem of my website being redirected to weird sites, and my being directed to webistes while navigating through the computer (e.g. after the control panel comes up).

There may be other problems as well, but I haven't come across them yet. Here's my HijackThis Log:

OK,

I've managed to get rid of the toolbar (by removing the appropriate hijack this entries). I think that my problem is related to wareout and hclean32.exe, and I deleted both of their entires in HJT. I uninstalled wareout, and i cannot find a wareout.exe anywhere anymore. I used Killbox to get rid of hsclean32.exe. However, the problem remains that I am constanlty redirected while surfing (although so far this has only happened while clicking on search results from google). Also the weird entries in my registry are still there. Is there any way I can get rid of them?

If more detail is necessary, please let me know.

Thanks in advance

OK I understand how the registry works now so those entries are not a problem as tehy are restricted sites. All I need to do now is solve taht problem with my browser being redirected. If no luck, I will post it as a new topic, as most of the stuff here is irrelevant (wareout appears gone). Sorry for your time.

Hi,

Firstly, it may be important to know (is it's somehow related) that I've had a run in with Wareout. However, I got rid of it (I think) by unionstalling it from the control panel, removing its entry from my HJT scan, and also removing hclean32.exe with Killbox (C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\hclean32.exe) and removing its entry from my HJT scan. I also used Killbox to remove the files loadctr32.exe(C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\loadctr32.exe), wo.tmp (C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\wo.tmp), rdt.ini (C:\WINDOWS\rdt.ini) and ntfsnlpa.exe(C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ntfsnlpa.exe). Now I cannot find using File Finder any files of these names nor a wareout.exe. I hope this means that I've gotten rid of wareout, but please confirm.

I did these things according to someone else's query as they too were infected with wareout. I hope that I didn't do anything stupid...

I've noticed that a Silent Runners log is often needed, and I've included mine here:

OK

It may also be worthwhile to mention that I had a toolbar forcefully installed upon my computer, which I got rid of by deleting the related entries from HJT (I think the toolbar was called SearchToolbar). Anyway, for diagnostic purposes I'll describe it. It had from left to right: "Remove Toolbar" (obviously didn't work...) [textbox] "Search" "Gambling" "Internet" "Pharmacy" "Finance" "Insurance" "Adult"

Now the reason I mentioned this is that the wareout problem and searchtoolbar problem appeared at the same time as my browser problem. The problem is that as I using IE, it gets redirected to other dodgy sites. So far, this has only happened with links to Google search results (not all links cause it to be redirected - it appears to be random). Before, it used to be a variety of sites, but now that I've (hopefully)gotten rid of wareout, it is only one. It is ww3.exactsearch.com (I think it is .com)/search.php or similar. What happens is after I click on the link to the search result, it moves to a blank page before moving to exactsearch. The blank page has an address of http:// followed by the IP address 64.182.127.199. Upon noticing this, I added it (i.e. 64.182.127.199) to my restricted sites list, and now the redirecting stops at the blank page stage (as in it says "done" and doesnt move to exactsearch). I'm not sure what is causing this, but I have included my HJT logfile:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer = 195.95.218.36,85.255.112.15

There are just 2 things I feel that I should mention, as they may be important. Firstly, the O4 entry for [dmbum.exe] is weird as the file has changed its name a few times, and all the names are dm***.exe (before I think it was dmcvw.exe or similar, and before that it was something different again, but I can't rememebr what). Secondly, the IP addresses in the O17 entry after "NameServer=" aren't the same as mine: When I go via the Start Menu into MS-DOS Prompt and type in "ipconfig /all" it displyas my IP address to be ***.***.*.* (remains undisclosed for security purposes, but each * represents a digit).

Finally, I'm running the latest versions of Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot S&D with the latest definitions and they don't seem to be picking anything up.

OK, that's all! Sorry for such a lengthly query...hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards,
