Okay, here's the Hijackthis logfile as it stands now.


Do you think it would be a good idea to run through the standards again... adaware, spybot, ewido etc?

Log is clean.

If you want to try something, try different ones:

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

REBOOT your system.

2. Download a trial version of SpySweeper
  • Install the application
  • Update its definitions
  • Run the program
  • Let it remove everything it wants
  • Finally, when it has finished its work, REBOOT your system.
3. Please get back to me after they have finished and inform me if they found very much

Regards,

Trevuren

While I'm scanning, I was wondering...

Should I delete all of the files in Temporary Internet Files ? It takes so long to scan them and it seems such a waste if they're just temporary. Or do they need to stay for diagnosis?

Also, I'm sure you've answered this question a thousand times, so there's probably a page already created somewhere that you refer to, but "What are the steps I should take to prevent as many of these malware problems as possible?"

Thanks again. (still scanning with TrojanHunter)

Okay, here's the short and sweet Trojanhunter report:

Registry scan
No suspicious entries found
Inifile scan
No suspicious entries found
Port scan
Port 5180/TCP is open (Matches Peeper.120. Port being used by process aim.exe/PID 1008) (Tell me more about port alerts...)
Memory scan
No trojans found in memory
File scan
No trojan files found


By the way, I just realized that our troubleshooting has sortof headed away from the original task. That task was completed a while ago and now we're on to residual other things. I guess I wanted to mention that incase others were following the thread.

Gonna go get spysweeper and run it now.

Oh, one more thing... Spybot reports some errors that it can't repair, even after a restart. Maybe SpySweeper will get it...

Well, while I was waiting for your reply, I figured a few extra scans wouldn't hurt...

What a vicious cycle... now the updated Spybot sees PSGuard.msmsgs, download Accelerrator Plus Ads,smitfraud-c, realdownloadexpress, and zonemap.ranges

It could repair some, but left all the smitfraud-c (run smitrem?) and some of the others.

Should I be doing some prevention during all of this? I'm only using that machine to connect to the forum when I need to paste, and then I am only using Firefox...

  • Download the following self-extracting file smitRem.exe and save the file to your DESKTOP.
    • Double click the Smitrem.exe icon on your Desktop.
    • Then click Run>Start and a Smitrem folder will apear on your desktop also.
  • 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.
  • Open the smitRem folder
    • 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.
    • It will produce a log called smitfiles.txt log
  • REBOOT your system into Normal Mode

  • Post the contents of the smitfiles.txt log into this thread.
Regards,

Trevuren

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you...

I am ready for the final cleanup! However, there are a few things still that show up in Spybot that won't go away...
