Make sure you are disconnected from the Internet and that all programs and windows are closed.

Run HiJackThis. Place a check next to the following items and click FIX CHECKED:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{8F2C7DF6-A0B5-4C17-9364-EECBB775380A}: NameServer = 195.95.218.50,85.255.112.8

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{E6EAE242-E9E5-40CB-966D-9A0C734530A5}: NameServer = 195.95.218.50,85.255.112.8


Close HiJackThis.

Now lets check some settings on your system.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel and double-click on Network Connections
  • Then right click on your Default Connection
    • Usually Local Area Connection for Cable and DSL
  • Left click on Properties.
  • Click the Networking tab.
  • Double-Click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item.
  • Select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS Servers Automatically.
  • Press OK twice to get out of the properties screen and reboot if it asks.
Make sure to reboot and post back a new HiJackThis log into this topic.

Regards,

Trevuren,

I preformed all the aforementioned steps, although I made the mistake of searching for all the files listed rather than through My Computer. While this may be insignigcant to the outcome, but when I got to the temp folder, it came up with close to 900 results...while most of them seemed unimportant, some looked fimilar (in terms of relation to other programs). While I did remove them to the recycle bin, I've yet to fully delete them, in case they're needed after all. Is there a way to post a log of the Recycle Bin? Thanks for all your hard work, despite my slow response time. After posting this, I have a few obligations to attend to (as do you, I'm sure), and will be back around 6, or so. Thanks again, Trevuren.

Trev,

I feel the need to reiterate what I did in the step prior to this. I was Searching/Deleting the aforementioned files, and when I searched for C:\documents and settings\scottt connolly\local settings\temp\ it came up with a whopping 853 results, most of which seemed like they had to go (however, there were a few that looked familier, again in terms of their relation to programs). I moved them all to the Recycle Bin, but have yet to delete in case I've made a grave mistake.

While I know this is perhaps the stupidest mistake possible, I feel that without your help it could turn into a very grave one. Is there a way to post a log of what's sitting in the Bin?

Respectfully,
Scott

Stop worrying about your Temp Files. Most people don't keep their bank account information in Temp Folders. No programs, other than malicious ones, usually run in Temp Folders.

1. I want you to download and run a free trial version of an anti-trojan program called Trojan Hunter: Trojan Hunter . Let it scan your whole system and remove anything it finds.

2. REBOOT your system.


3. Post a fresh HJT log and tell me if Trojan Hunter found anything.


Regards,

Trevuren

Trojanhunter found and cleaned two files:

Removed registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SearchToolbar\Toolbar
Removed registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SearchToolbar

Renamed file C:\!Submit\ntfsnlpa.exe to C:\!Submit\ntfsnlpa.exe.tcf
Renamed file C:\!Submit\rdsndin.exe to C:\!Submit\rdsndin.exe.tcf
Trojan cleaning finished.

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.

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.

Reconfigure Windows XP to hide hidden files:
  • Click Start. Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading deselect "Show hidden files and folders".
  • Check the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
  • Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.
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
