I also want you to know that I manually deleted the program files maxvices before
starting to try and clear up this spyware. This program kept trying to launch something called qedident.exe and pretty much made my computer useless.

Thanks,

Deborah

Open notepad then save the text within the code box as fix.bat to your Desktop.

@echo off 
sc stop NpfPIPE 
sc delete NpfPIPE 
Attrib -a -s -h -r C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\amd04nt59.sys 
Attrib -a -s -h -r "C:\Program Files\Maxvices\*.*"

del /q C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\amd04nt59.sys

del /q C:\WINDOWS\system32\cerquoui.dll

Please run Notepad and paste the following text into a new file:

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Aprps ]

Save the file to the desktop as fix.reg and make sure the "Save as Type" field says "All Files". Then please go to the desktop and double-click on fix.reg, and click Yes to merge it with the registry.

Reboot your computer.

Scan once more with Microsoft Anti-Spyware, let me know what it finds.

This should take care of it for good. :tazz:

Hello,

A couple of questions before I do the big fix.

Do I do need to do this in Safe Mode?

In the note pad file are these the only 2 lines I put in the file -

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Aprps ]

I don't need to put the word quote do I? Sorry, I know this is sort of a silly question but I just want to make sure I get it right.

Thanks again,

Deborah

Hi deb...after conferring with Atri (he's been helping me) Yes run it in safe mode.

Just paste the two lines darlin' and it's not a silly question. Better safe than sorry.

Njustice & Atri,

You guys did it - its gone!!! I am so happy. Thanks so much.


One last question, which programs should I run and how often should I run them to make sure this doesn't happen again. Also, are there any settings I should change now that we have cleaned up the computer?

Thanks,

Deborah

Hi Deb, like I said earlier if not for Atri I would have not succeeded....thank you Atri! :tazz:

Below is recommendations...as a general rule run those programs when definitions are updated and if you suspect having something on your computer. With that said....

C:)NGRATULATI:)NS! at last, your system is clean and free of spyware! Want to keep it that way?

Here are some simple steps you can take to reduce the chance of infection in the future. Please do these steps as soon as possible if you haven't already.

1. Visit Windows Update:
Make sure that you have all the Critical Updates recommended for your operating system and IE. The first defense against infection is a properly patched OS.
a. Windows Update: http://v5.windowsupd.../en/default.asp

2. Adjust your security settings for ActiveX:
Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."
In the ActiveX section, set the first option, 'Download signed controls', to 'Prompt; set the
second option, 'Download unsigned controls', to 'Disable'; and finally, set 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'Disable'.

3. Download and install the following free programs
a. SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacools...areblaster.html
b. SpywareGuard: http://www.wildersse...ywareguard.html
c. IE/Spyad: https://netfiles.uiu...ww/resource.htm
d. Bugoff: http://www.majorgeek...wnload4308.html

4. Install Spyware Detection and Removal Programs:
You may also want to consider installing either or both of AdAware (free version) and Spybot S&D (freeware). Use these programs to regularly scan your system for and remove many forms of spyware/malware.
a. AdAware: http://www.lavasoft.de/
b. Spybot S&D: http://security.koll...n&page=download

Before adding any other Spyware Detection and Removal programs always check the Rogue Anti-Spyware List for programs known to be misleading, mistaken, or just outright "Foistware". You will find the list here: http://www.spywarewa...nti-spyware,htm

5. Install 'Spoofstick"
Spoofstick is a simple browser extension that helps users detect spoofed (fake) websites. This extension is free and installs in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
a. http://www.corestreet.com/spoofstick

6. Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. See the links below:
a. ZoneAlarm
b. Kerio

7. Reset System Restore
If you are using Windows ME or Windows XP, please reset your System Restore.
a. Turn off system restore by right clicking on "My Computer" and go to "Properties"->"System Restore" and check the box for "Turn off System Restore". Click "Apply" and then "OK". Restart your computer. Reverse these steps and turn "System Restore" back on and create a new restore point.

8. Use GoogleToolbar - It's free, blocks popups and takes seconds to install. Use the toolbar without the advanced features enabled(check this during install), the toolbar is completely inert--it doesn't send any information to Google whatsoever as you surf.
a. GoogleToolbar

9. RegScrubXP 3.25 - Safely cleans junk out of the Windows. 2000/XP system registry. All changes made to the registry are fully restorable to it's original condition.
a. RegScrubXP 3.25

10. Online Virus Scans - Run these on a regular basis(I usually do about once a month or suspect a problem):
a. http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm
b. http://www.windowsec...com/trojanscan/
c. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
d. http://www.bitdefend...can/licence.php

11. Alternative Browsers - Using an alternative browser other than IE will IMMENSELY reduce the risk of infection:
a. Firefox<==my #1 choice
b. Avant
c. Opera


Good luck, and thanks for coming to our forums for help with your security and malware issues.
