Please help! i'm very new to the computer scene and don't know anything about them. i recently purchased a new computer, and a few weeks later, these annoying pop-ups are taking over my internet web pages! the main culprits are winfixer, winantispyware, and traffic explorer. how do i get rid of these? i have anti-virus and anti-spyware protection, but i'm not sure if these things are related to my question. please dummy proof the steps i need to take to get rid of these problems. again, i'm virtually new and i don't want to mess up. what do i need to do? and what is hijackthis? do i need this for you guys to view the programs my computer is running? thanks for the help. i was reffered by a friend and said you guys were great!

Hello :tazz:

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go:tazz:

I see you have been infected by malware. Lets get you fixed up.
Please follow the directions as closely as you can . Lets begin

Please print these instructions out for use in Safe Mode.

Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.
  • Double-click VundoFix.exe to extract the files
  • This will create a VundoFix folder on your desktop.
  • After the files are extracted, please reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.
  • Once in safe mode open the VundoFix folder and doubleclick on KillVundo.bat
  • You will first be presented with a warning and a list of forums to seek help at.
    it should look like this

    .

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: dosip - C:\WINDOWS\repair\dosip.dll
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: dvddns - C:\WINDOWS\java\dvddns.dll


  • After you have fixed these items, close Hijackthis and Press any key to Force a reboot of your computer.
  • Pressing any key will cause a "Blue Screen of Death" this is normal, do not worry!
  • Once your machine reboots please continue with the instructions below.
Download and install CleanUp!

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:
Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):

Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

It may ask you to reboot at the end, click NO.

Please run this online virus scan:
Panda Active Scan You need to use Internet Explorer for this scan.
  • Once you get to the Panda site, scroll down a bit and click on Scan your PC
  • A new window will appear; click on Check Now!
  • A new window will appear; fill in the boxes (Country, State, email addy)
  • Click on Scan Now! >
    If you have never used ActiveScan before, you will be prompted to install an ActiveX control (asinst.cab) : click on Install. Panda will install the component, and then install the latest signature files.
  • From "Select a device to scan...", choose "My Computer"
  • Allow the scan to run. It'll take a while.
  • When complete, click on "See Report", and then on "Save report"; save it to a convenient location.
  • I will need you to post that report in your next reply; simply open the text file, then copy/paste the content here.
Copy the results of the ActiveScan and paste them here along with a new HiJackThis log and the vundofix.txt file from the vundofix folder into this topic.

Thanks :)

loophole what's up! well, i did everything you listed. the only thing was during the killvundo.bat part where i was supposed to place a check, one of the items was not listed. it was: O2-BHO:MSEvents Object- {827DC836-DD9F-4A68-A602-5812EB50A834}-C\WINDOWS\repair\dosip.dll . did i do something wrong?

and by doing all these steps, did it remove winfixer, winantispyware, and traffic explorer?

one last question, what do i do with all the programs i downloaded (vundofix, cleanup, etc) ? do i uninstall and delete these files? sorry for all the questions. but thank you for your help!

here is the activescan result:

did i do something wrong?

and by doing all these steps, did it remove winfixer, winantispyware, and traffic explorer?


Nope you did it right and Yes it should have removed those

one last question, what do i do with all the programs i downloaded (vundofix, cleanup, etc) ? do i uninstall and delete these files?



You can delete the Vundo fix. I would keep cleanup and run it once a week to clean all your temp files where malware likes to hide but you can get rid of it if you choose :tazz:

Congratulations

your system is clean :)

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • 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.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/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.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera and SlimBrowsers are good as well.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and Spyware Aid's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.
