Hi, I've been working on my boyfriend's computer for a couple of weeks now. It was a mess. It started with doing this thing where when you first start up, the desktop would load fine, but the screen would flicker every several seconds of being on, and then any program/folder/etc. that was opened would be closed.

I was able to run a few things in safe mode and clean it up enough to get it to work and (sometimes) start up normally. I finally was able to connect to the Internet & downloaded most of the clean up utilities on the forum "Start Here" page. So I've now ran AdAware, SpyBot, Ewido and AVG several times now, and it seems like each time, they find some new infection.

Well, I've been working on it about all day today, and I just ran the AVG antivirus twice, and the second time it came up completely clean. I think if I were to restart however, there may be more.

Anyway, enough of the background, here is the hijack this file that I just ran:

One odd thing that still happens is that IE (his original browser, which I've since then got him FireFox) the default homepage always changes to "about:blank". I've tried changing the homepage several times, but it always seems to go back to that.

This isn't that big of a deal since he has FireFox. But a lot of the online scanners like no Trend Micro, need IE to run on. And sometimes if I tried to run those, the error message would come up asking to shut it down.

Any suggestions?

Hi KyloRilee and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log. You can forget about trying to get rid of the trojans for now. Your system has a serious case of CWS About:Blank infection with running service which acts like a magnet for trojans. So this is what we have to get rid of first.

1. Please DELETE your current HJT program from its present location.

2. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here . Please choose the default location of C:\Program Files\ as the destination. HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click SCAN and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')
  • POST the log into this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren

As I did this in safe mode, I logged in through System Administrator, instead of the User Account that I had ran the previous HijackThis log for.

The safemode did not have a few of the certain entries you told me to delete, like most of the O4 and O23 fixes could not be found.

The don't seem to be showing up in this new report either though (posted below).

Here is the EWIDO report:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.
  • First we need to make all files and folders VISIBLE:
    • Go to start>control panel>folder options>view (tab)
    • Choose to "show hidden files and folders,"
    • Uncheck the "hide protected operating system files" and the "hide extensions for know file types" boxes.
    • Close the window with ok
  • Please RUN HijackThis.
    . Click the SCAN button to produce a log.

  • Place a check mark beside each one of the following items:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com
    O2 - BHO: Class - {0C2D58AD-B9FF-F073-94B2-F794E4658C89} - C:\WINDOWS\ntsu32.dll
    O2 - BHO: Class - {A9286A6C-DA6E-C7A6-3C97-95677D9DA2FE} - C:\WINDOWS\sdkry32.dll
    O2 - BHO: Class - {C547AD1E-8BEF-930B-9B2C-B1DFC7FBE428} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3sg32.dll
    O2 - BHO: Class - {FBF04123-7B6C-5A17-E393-11BC902B1B9B} - C:\WINDOWS\apikb.dll (file missing)
    O21 - SSODL: XMpcMBDqLaD - {1C19262E-B6B3-8C84-BBE1-ADBC57A295E9} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\bdcn.dll (file missing)


  • Now with all the items selected, and all windows closed except for HJT, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window.

  • Reboot Your System in Safe Mode

    How to use the F8 method to Start Your Computer in Safe Mode

    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
    • Press Enter.
  • Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and DELETE them (if they are present):

    C:\WINDOWS\ntsu32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\sdkry32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3sg32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\apikb.dll

  • Exit Explorer, and REBOOT BACK INTO NORMAL MODE

  • Finally, RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everything looks now.
Regards,

Trevuren

I did everything as you said, however could not find any of the files you listed in Windows Explorer:

C:\WINDOWS\ntsu32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\sdkry32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3sg32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\apikb.dll

Also, I've been doing a selective startup all this time, until now I did a normal startup. So there seems to be more on this report.

Thank you for all of your help! Just let me know if there's anything else I need to do.

We want to stop, disable and delete an added service (023)

A. To stop a service and set to 'disabled'
  • Go to Start > Run and type in Services.msc then click OK
  • Click the Extended tab.
  • Scroll down until you find the service.
    ===>System Startup Service
  • Click once on the service to highlight it.
  • Click Stop
  • Right-Click on the service.
  • Click on 'Properties'
  • Select the 'General' tab
  • Click the Arrow-down tab on the right-hand side on the 'Start-up Type' box
  • From the drop-down menu, click on 'Disabled'
  • Click the 'Apply' tab, then click 'OK'
The service is now stopped and disabled.


B. We will now delete the service:

1. Open HJT

2. Click on Config>>Misc Tools>>Delete an NT Service

3. Copy/Paste SvcProc in the space provided and click OK

4. The program will ask you to REBOOT --- Accept

5. REBOOT into SAFE MODE

6. Using Windows Explorer, locate and DELETE the following file (if it still is present):

C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe

7. REBOOT back into Normal Mode

8. Finally, run HijackThis, click SCAN, produce a LOG and POST it in this thread for review.

Regards,

Trevuren

The first part of this was already done. We stopped the service in one of the earlier steps you had posted, so that was already taken care of.

I successfully deleted the NT service through HJT.

But in Safe Mode, again I could not find C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe

Here is the new log...

There is a lot more junk to remove.

We want to stop, disable and delete an added service (023)

A. To stop a service and set to 'disabled'
  • Go to Start > Run and type in Services.msc then click OK
  • Click the Extended tab.
  • Scroll down until you find the service.
    ===>Windows lsass Service
  • Click once on the service to highlight it.
  • Click Stop
  • Right-Click on the service.
  • Click on 'Properties'
  • Select the 'General' tab
  • Click the Arrow-down tab on the right-hand side on the 'Start-up Type' box
  • From the drop-down menu, click on 'Disabled'
  • Click the 'Apply' tab, then click 'OK'
The service is now stopped and disabled.


B. We will now delete the service:

1. Open HJT

2. Click on Config>>Misc Tools>>Delete an NT Service

3. Copy/Paste lsass in the space provided and click OK

4. The program will ask you to REBOOT --- Accept

5. REBOOT into SAFE MODE

6. Using Windows Explorer, locate and DELETE the following file (if it still is present):

C:\WINDOWS\lsass.exe <==Make sure it is the one in this folder only, if present

7. REBOOT back into Normal Mode

8. Finally, run HijackThis, click SCAN, produce a LOG and POST it in this thread for review.

Regards,

Trevuren

I apologize, but I won't be able to get to this tonight. I'm actually posting this message from work right now.

I will do these steps tomorrow evening, and post the results then.

Again, sorry for the delay.

I did everything as said, but when I went to safe mode to check for that file, it was not in the C:\WINDOWS, but it was in the C:\WINDOWS\System32 folder. However, when I tried to delete that file, it said that it could not delete it because it was write-protected or currently in use. Is this file okay to keep, or do we need to find another way to delete this file??

If I should continue, here is the new log:

I am glad you read the directions properly. That file that was to be deleted only if found in C:\Windows\. It wasn't and you didn't. :tazz: If you look into the 023 items, the one we were trying to remove is gone.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.
  • First we need to make all files and folders VISIBLE:
    • Go to start>control panel>folder options>view (tab)
    • Choose to "show hidden files and folders,"
    • Uncheck the "hide protected operating system files" and the "hide extensions for know file types" boxes.
    • Close the window with ok
  • Please RUN HijackThis.
    . Click the SCAN button to produce a log.

  • Place a check mark beside each one of the following items:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdtl] C:\WINDOWS\System32\winupdtl.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WeirdOnTheWeb] "C:\Program Files\WeirdOnTheWeb\WeirdOnTheWeb.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ntha32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\ntha32.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ipai.exe] C:\WINDOWS\ipai.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [crnf32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\crnf32.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [atlso32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\atlso32.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [apist32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\apist32.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [addan.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\addan.exe


  • Now with all the items selected, and all windows closed except for HJT, delete them by clicking the FIX checked button. Close the HijackThis window.

  • Reboot Your System in Safe Mode

    How to use the F8 method to Start Your Computer in Safe Mode

    • Restart the computer.
    • As soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
    • Press Enter.
  • Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and DELETE them (if they are present):

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\winupdtl.exe
    C:\Program Files\WeirdOnTheWeb<==Folder
    C:\WINDOWS\ntha32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\ipai.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\crnf32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\atlso32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\apist32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\addan.exe

  • Exit Explorer, and REBOOT BACK INTO NORMAL MODE

  • Finally, RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everything looks now.
Regards,

Trevuren

EMERGENCY!

Help! I have a whole new problem now! I am posting this from work again, because my computer won't even startup now! If I try to startup in Normal mode, I get a blue screen of death!

What's weird is that it just began last night, but I hadn't done anything since I followed your directions on the last post (the one about getting rid of the "lsass"). But I had restarted the computer 2 times since following those steps. I mean, I even started up normally after doing that step to run the new log and post it on here, so you see that it worked then.

After that though, I shut down, and then got back on later that night to see if you'd posted a reply (doing absolutely NOTHING to the computer in between that time) and I whenever I would try to startup, the desktop would begin to load fine, and then it would go to a screen saying something like:

Problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

etc...

Technical Information: *** STOP: 0x00000008E (etc.)

Begin dump of physical memory.

etc...


But I am, however, able to still reboot in safe mode. So that's what I did. And in safe mode, I was able to run HijackThis, and I completely the steps that you just posted, about deleting winupdtl, WeirdOnTheWeb, etc...

So I went ahead and did that in safe mode, thinking maybe that would fix the problem. But it didn't. So I tried to do a selective startup. That's when I noticed something odd. When I went to run > msconfig, and looked in the startup tab, I saw something in there that I did not recognize.

It said:
dumprep 0-k %systemroot%\system32\dumprep0-k

So I tried to uncheck that to see if it would do anything.

I restarted in normal mode... same error message came up. Went back to safe mode, back into selective startup... and that "dumprep 0-k" option was rechecked again!

So I tried running a few other utilities in safe mode to see if it would help. One I ran was CWShredder. When it went through, there was an entry called "CWS.MSConfig" that said was REMOVED. I thought maybe that took care of it, because that "dumprep" was now gone from the Selective Startup tab.

Nope. When I rebooted, it showed the error again, and when I looked in safe mode, "dumprep" was back on the Selective Startup tab. I tried that method twice (running CWShredder).

So back in safe mode, I ran HijackThis. That "dumprep 0-k" came up in HijackThis too. I've seen those logs enough to know that that wasn't there before now, so I thought it would be safe to try and let HijackThis fix it.

That didn't work either. It did the same thing as the CWShredder -- it will remove it from the msconfig startup tab, but everytime I reboot, it always comes back.

So I scanned the hard drive for that name. It showed up in 4 places:

C:\WINDOWS\System32
C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
C:\i386
C:\WINDOWS\I386

Do I need to manually delete one/some/all of those files? Or am I totally off, and is there something else wrong here?

Please let me know!
Thanks!
