Can you tell me something about this file - C:\WINDOWS\zeta.exe???

It could be related to fax services on your PC but could also be a bad file.

Click on Start ---> Run. Type Services.msc and hit enter. Locate the item - ZESOFT. Right click on it and then click on properties. In the Startup Type choose the option Disable. Close the window.


Reboot the PC in Safe Mode.


Delete the file - C:\WINDOWS\zeta.exe


Run Hijack This. Click on config ---> Misc Tools ---> Delete an NT Service. Type in ZESOFT - and hit enter.

Reboot the PC and post a fresh HJT log.

Run Hijack This and click on scan. The following items need to be fixed -

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{C9364087-15DE-4B5B-8CA5-EE7E3246D399}: NameServer = 195.238.50.254,195.238.40.45

Close all windows other than Hijack This. Check the boxes next to above items and click on Fix checked.

Reboot the PC.


If you have any difficulties in connecting to the internet, then open Hijack This. Click on config ---> backups. Restore the item wwhich we fixed above and let me know about it.

Hi,


CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!! Your PC is clean now :tazz:

I would recommend the following steps to keep your PC clean (especially Step 1 to install critical Windows patches including Service Pack 2 or SP2 if not already installed and Step 8 now that your PC is clean)

PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR FUTURE

Operating System
1. Keep the Windows and Internet Explorer updated with the latest fixes. These fixes are available free from Microsoft. Click on Tools in the IE menu bar and then on Windows update. You can also use the following links

Windows security and critical updates
Internet Explorer security and critical updates

Also ensure that automatic updates are enabled for faster updation of the system.
(Right click on My Computer on your desktop, properties and Automatic Updates tab.

Anti-Virus Software
2. Keep your Anti-virus program updated with the latest definitions. Some of the common anti-virus programs in use are :

Norton Anti-Virus
McAfee Anti-Virus
AVG Anti-Virus --- freeware
Avast Home Edition --- freeware

Use only one anti-virus program as multiple such programs can create conflicts between themselves and severely hamper the performance of your PC.

Firewall
3. You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
Sygate Personal Firewall, Kerio Personal Firewall, ZoneAlarm

Internet Browsers
4. Have robust explorer settings. It is preferable to use an internet browser other that IE as most of the malware is targetted at IE. In case you prefer to use IE, then download a list of innocent looking but harmful websites from IE-Spyad and install it on ur PC. IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your internet explorer's restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't really innocent at all.

Some alternate browsers I suggest are Firefox Mozilla Browser and Opera

Ensure that Security level, irrespective of whichever browser you use, is set at Medium or higher, restrict the usage of cookies and activeX components.

Spyware Protection
5. Have a wall of protection against spyware / adware by installing SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs.
SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources.
SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation and browser hijack attempts. Both have free ongoing updates.

Spyware Removers
6. Install programs for scanning for malware and uninstalling them. Two of the best programs, both are freeware, are :

Spybot Search & Destroy - A powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.

AdAware SE Personal Edition - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.

Regular Maintenance of PC
7. Finally, invest some time for regular maintenance of your PC. Delete the temporary Internet files, temporary files, cookies etc. Click on Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run the program Disk Cleanup. Follow the instructions.

An alternate freeware software which can be used is CleanUp.

Keep your Registry clean. My favourite software is Registry First Aid. This is not a freeware but a trial version can be downloaded.

System Restore Points
8. Since your PC is currently clean, create a system restore point. A system restore would enable you to revert to the settings on the PC when the restore point was created. It is also a good idea to flush all earlier system restore points which may be containing infected files.

Click on Start ---> Help and Support.

Under Help and Support Resources, click on System Restore. Click on "create a restore point". Click on Next and follow the instructions to create the system restore point.
Now Click on start ---> Run. Type in - cleanmgr - and hit enter. In the window which opens, it will ask you to choose your default drive (most likely C:\). Click on OK. It will scan your hard disks for cleaning up and may take a couple of minutes. Be patient.

After the scan is complete, click on "More Options" tab. Click on cleanup button in the System Restore section. Click on Yes when you are prompted - Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?

Click on OK and exit Disk Cleanup.

Go ahead and enjoy a clean PC !!!!!!!!!!!!!
