Hello Paul and welcome to Geeks to Go

As an introduction, please note that I am not Superhuman, I do not know everything, but what I do know has taken me years to learn. I am happy to pass on this information to you, but please bear in mind that I am also fallible.

Please note that you should have Administrator rights to perform the fixes. Also note that multiple identity PCs (family PCs) present a different problem; please tell me if your PC has more than one individuals setting.

Before we get underway, you may wish to print these instructions for easy reference during the fix, although please be aware that many of the required URLs are hyperlinks in the red names shown on your screen. Part of the fix may require you to be in Safe Mode, which will not allow you to access the internet, or my instructions!

You have quite a mixture of malware and Trojans that need to be eradicated. Lets see what we can do with the first sweep. Dont be put off by the size of the fix, I have staged it logically (might even have got it right :tazz: ).

I note that you are running HijackThis from Desktop; please create a new folder for it (for example C:\Program Files\Hijackthis\Hijackthis.exe) and move the programme into it. It is very important you do this before anything else since backup files can be deleted if they are not within their own folder!

Go to Start>Run and type Services.msc then hit OK
Scroll down and find this service:

Workstation NetLogon Service ( 11F #`I)

When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on Properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then OK.

Run HiJackThis. Click on None of the above, just start the program. Now, click on the Config button (bottom right), then click on Misc Tools, then click on Delete an NT Service a window will pop up. Enter this item into that field (copy and paste):

11F #`I

Click OK.

It should pull up information about the service, when it asks if you want to reboot now click YES

Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Download
CWShredder and save the file to your desktop

Download
cwsserviceemove.reg file and save the file to your desktop

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Now please install CWShredder, and run it. Click Check For Update, then Fix and then OK followed by Next, let it fix everything it asks about

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark/tick next to each of the following items:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\antqk.dll/sp.html#44980

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [d3ge.exe] C:\WINDOWS\d3ge.exe
O23 - Service: Workstation NetLogon Service ( 11F #`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\mslp32.exe


Click Fix checked

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Please delete these files (if present) using Windows Explorer:

C:\WINDOWS\mslp32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\d3ge.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\antqk.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\applh32.dll

Close Windows Explorer

Unzip cwsserviceemove.reg file to your desktop. While in safe mode, double click on it and grant it permission to add the registry items.

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen. Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.
  • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
  • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
  • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
  • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop and post in to me in your reply.
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan.

Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

Let me know if any problems persist.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the welcome and the reply, it does look complicated :tazz: lol

I have printed off your instructions already and will make a start on the first sweep! "I may be gone some time" as the famous explorer said, lol.

I will get back as soon as I get through instructions.

Kind regards,

Paul :)

Ahh! The words of Captain Lance Oates, a very brave man, back in 1912, whilst returning from the Antarctic. Trouble was he never made it :) , he went out to die in order to allow his group a chance to survive.

The fix isn't that bad, just lengthy. :tazz:

Hi Phil,

I am hoping to make it in from the cold, lol, unlike Capt Oates

When I try to delete NT Service (copy and paste 11F...) I get the response of:
Service '11F.....' was not found in the Registry. Make sure you entered the short name of the service., vbExclamation

:tazz: Do I need to try another name?

Hiya Phil,

Finished all those checks, I think the PSGuard is still lurking around, it was showing up on the scans :)

I have all the logs, as requested for you, seems a lot for you to go through, sorry for that. Hope you can make sense of it, not sure I could :tazz: lol

Regards, Paul.

Hello again Paul

I must be slipping in my old age, there are two items to fix.

Rescan with HijackThis. Close all programmes leaving only HijackThis running. Place a checkmark or tick against the following:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing


Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and I will take another look.

Hi Phil

I think I would definately be slipping, going through all that data, you seem to be getting through it all though, lol, :tazz:

Heres the next log posted, nearly enough logs to build a raft already :)

Congratulations! your new log is clean. :tazz: Just a little bit more to do to prevent further infection.

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programmes changing them. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
I recommend going to the following link and update as recommended by Microsoft. This adds more security and extra features including a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer. Microsoft Update

Now that everything is fixed, I suggest that you consider getting these programmes to help keep the computer clean:

SPYWARE BLASTER - Blocks bad ActiveX items from installing on your computer.
AD-AWARE PERSONAL A fine free malware detector and removal programme
SPYBOT S&D Excellent free spyware detector and removal programme
GOOGLE TOOLBAR - Blocks many unwanted pop-ups in Internet Explorer.
FIREFOX - Safer alternative to the Internet Explorer web browser.
AVG ANTIVIRUS FREE EDITION - Free antivirus programme if you currently are not using one.
ZONEALARM - Free firewall programme if you currently are not using one (Windows XP has a built-in firewall).

Remember to update these frequently.

Please note that whilst there is nothing wrong in having more than one antispyware programmes for on demand scanning, having two or more antivirus systems is not recommended as they may well interfere with each other.

You may also want to read "How did I get infected in the first place" to learn how to better secure your computer.

Be sure to keep your Windows, antispyware and antivirus updated. :)

Well done Paul, I wish you happy safe surfing!

Hi Phil,

many thanks for your help, :)
I have ZoneAlarm and Norton running now and Norton detects no virus threat, the w.32desktophijack has gone now.
I did run the activescan again, from Panda, and it is showing that the adware for psguard is still somewhere in my harddrive and something called midaddle, are these a threat or is it ok to leave them on or can I remove them?

Incident Status Location

Adware:adware/midaddle No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\9.exe
Adware:adware/psguard No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\PSGuardInstall.exe


Kind regards again,
Paul :tazz:

Sorry Paul, but I thought I had already emptied your Temp folder.

Here goes:

Please delete your temporary files.

Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start >My Computer)

You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the bottom of the fly out window.

On the very first tab (General) you will see a button labelled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.

Make sure the following are checked:Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Next, go to Start>Run>type in %temp% hit Enter and delete the content of all the temp folders shown (only the content, not the folder).
