Hi shannonv and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

1. If you haven't logged in go to Geeks to Go and do so. Then proceed to item a.

If you already have logged in, go directly to item a.
  • Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window.
  • In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
  • If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there
2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. Please DELETE your current HJT program from its present location.

4. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click SCAN and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')
  • POST the log into this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren

Hi again ... I started up the PC in Safemode. I ran VundoFix.exe and typed in the first command line followed by ENTER, F6 and ENTER again. Nothing happened to prompt to the next line. The cursor just blinked.

Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

I typed in the first command line:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\awtsp.dll

Then, I pressed ENTER, then F6, then ENTER again

nothing happened except a cursor

So, I typed in the next command line you said:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\pstwa.*

I then pressed ENTER, F6 and ENTER again.

I then ran HijackThis and completed the next steps you said. I closed Hijack. You said to force a reboot but all I did was restart the machine the normal way and it didn't cause a blue screen.

When I restarted, ewido popped up with a warning about the dll. That's where I got to. Should I proceed now because the .dll is still there in Hijack.

I have been unable to do the activescan all night. I connect to the scan but it doesn't start. Not sure why. Then all of a sudden my browser shuts down. Help!

1. I need to disable your Microsoft AntiSpyware Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes.
  • Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  • Click on Options, Settings.
  • In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
  • Under Startup Options uncheck: Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
  • Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck: Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
  • After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
  • Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware
2. We must disable Spy Sweeper for it may interfere with our fix

To disable SpySweeper:
  • Open SpySweeper, click >Options over to the left then >program options >Uncheck "load at windows startup".
  • Over to the left, click "shields" and uncheck all there.
  • Uncheck "home page shield".
  • Uncheck 'automaticly restore default without notifiction
3. And please disable EwidoGuard for the same reasons.
============================================

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:

    O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {827DC836-DD9F-4A68-A602-5812EB50A834} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\awtsp.dll (file missing)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [# L"h'9Ӝ3rWC:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe] C:\WINDOWS\tstid.exe
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: awtsp - C:\WINDOWS\system32\awtsp.dll (file missing)


  • 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\system32\awtsp.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\tstid.exe



  • 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
