Hi this is my first time using this site, so I am a little new to this so I apologize if I ask a lot of questions, but I would really appreciate your help if you could please help me. Thanks,

Two days ago I accidentally clicked on a link that was sent to me by a friend through AIM, but it turns out that it he had a virus that sends this link to everyone on their buddy list, and when I clicked it icons popped up in my bottom right screen that started installing troj/a or something around that sort. Also, now I have a "Open File-Security Warning" box that pops up in the middle of my screen everytime I turn on my computer and it asks me if I want to run or cancel the application lockx.exe from C:\WINDOWS\system32, and whether or not I click run or cancel it still freezes all of my programs on my computer, and my anti-virus program 'Sophos Anti-Virus' won't even show up in the bottom right taskbar now as a result of some virus that is in my computer. The only way to use any of my programs is if I just don't click the "Open File-Security Warning" box at all at the start of my computer, but usually even if I just leave it there after a while none of my programs begin to open when I click on them again. I have tried running Sophos when I first realized and I got a virus through AIM and it found 6 viruses that I deleted and webroot spysweeper and trojan hunter have found quite a few spywares, but now when I run Sophos it doesn't find anything, and neither do any of the other programs, but I know that I still have a virus because none of my icons or programs open after a long enough time and I get infested with pop ups on Mozilla Firefox that were never happening before. If there is anything more that I can do to get rid of this virus please let me know because I cannot find it no matter where I look or what anti-virus programs I use, and all of my programs freeze after my computer is on with that window still open as well after a long enough time. I have used the HiJackThis program and saved and pasted my log below for you to look at. Thank you very much for your help. user: skibuddy86 email: ikimball@hotmail.com

Hi Trevuren,

Thanks for responding to my question. I ran the AIMFix.exe program and when I rebooted my system the lockx.exe window that tried to run before didn't show up this time. Here is the hijack log after I rebooted the system.

1. Please download LQfix.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-Click LQfix.exe and click Next > Next > Install.
  • Leave the default settings, if you change them, the fix will Fail!
  • Now make sure the "Launch LQfix" box is checked.
  • Click the Finish button, after clicking the Finish button the fix will start.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • Your system will now reboot afterwards.
  • Please be patient after the reboot, there is a script running in the background that needs to complete.
2. Now do a scan with HiJackThis and post a new log by using Add Reply

Hi Again,

The computer rebooted and a window came up saying that the LQfix is complete, so these are the results from the Hijack log immediately after the completion of the LQfix. Thank you so much for your help so far. Please let me know what to do next.

We must disable SpySweeper

To disable SpySweeper:
  • Open it click >Options over to the left then >program options >Uncheck "load at windows startup".
  • Over to the left click "shields" and uncheck all there.
  • Uncheck "home page shield".
  • Uncheck 'automaticly restore default without notification
  • 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\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapp.../search/ie.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com
    O16 - DPF: {205FF73B-CA67-11D5-99DD-444553540012} (CInstall Class) - http://www.funnytaf....ler/Install.cab



  • 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


  • Finally, RUN Hijackthis again and produce a new HJT log. Post it in the forum so we can check how everything looks now. In addition, please tell me if there are any more malware problems that you are aware of.
Regards,

Hi again Trevuren,

I was able to do all the steps fine like you described, so far I can't think of any other malware problems, my computer seems to be running pretty well. The only other thing that I would ask you is if I need to do anything else to fix my computer and what spyware removal programs you would recommend other than the Sophos anti virus program that I use, provided my college, and if I should remove any anti-spyware programs that I have now, which include Microsoft AntiSpyware and Webroot Spysweeper, and the trojan hunter program as well. Here is the HiJackThis Log. Thanks so much for your help so far,

If you are not going to purchase a license, I suggest that you UNINSTALL both SpySweeper and Trojan Hunter both of which will cease to function after the trial period.

Congratulations, your log shows that your SYSTEM IS CLEAN

There are a few things you must do once you are completely clean:

1. Re-hide your System Files and Folders to prevent any future accidents.

Reconfigure Windows XP to hide hidden files:
  • Click Start. Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading deselect "Show hidden files and folders".
  • Check the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
  • Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.
2. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files from the backup that Windows makes as no program is able to clean those files:

TO DISABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Right-click "My Computer", and then left click "Properties".
  • Left click on "System Restore Tab"
  • Check box beside "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Left click on "Apply"
TO ENABLE SYSTEM RESTORE
  • Remove check mark from "Turn Off System Restore"
  • Click on "Apply"
Here are some tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:

Make sure you keep your Windows OS current by visiting Windows update
regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. With out these you are leaving the backdoor open.

I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • 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.
To protect yourself further:
  • 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.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? (My Favorite)

Regards,

Trevuren

Dear Trevuren,

I followed all of your steps and downloaded the spyware blaster, guarder, and ad-aware programs and deleted the spysweeper and trojan hunter programs through the control panel add remove programs. I cannot thank you enough for your help, and I will certainly recommend you to any one else that I know to spread the word about this fantastic site. Once again, I cannot thank everyone that is involved with this helping process enough!
You "geeks to go" are the best!

Sincerely,

Ian
