PSGuard [RESOLVED]

Hi,

I have a red icon on my tolobar that says ' Your computer is infected' when I move my mouse pointer over it. On double clicking, the system attempts to contact the psguard website. However, my machine(Windows 98) seems to be working fine presently. But I would definitely like to get rid of the irritating icon , and the spyware program(if present)and was hoping that someone here could let me know how to do this. I did go to Symantec's website yesterday and edited the registry/deleted the psguard program, and the icon disappeared only to come back upon the next boot.


Below is my HJT log file.

Any assistance would be really appreciated .

Let's clean the first infection:

Download CWShredder

If you do not have a zip program please download the evaluation version of Winzip.

Download SpSeHjfix.zip to the desktop. Then right click on the desktop and select new >folder, name it spfix unzip SpSeHjfix.zip into the new folder.

Disconnect from the net and Close ALL OPEN PROGRAMS.
Run 'SpSeHjfix'. and click on "Start Disinfection".
When it's finished it will reboot your machine to finish the cleaning process.
The tool creates a log of the fix which will appear in the folder.

If it doesn't find any of the SE files or any hidden reinstallers it will say system clean and not go on to next stage

Once it is finished run CWShredder - Hit The FIX button!

Reboot and post a new HJT log and the log that was created by 'SpSeHjfix'.

Warning Note: On a few occasions it has been reported that after using the SPSEHjfix you cannot open Internet Explorer. To fix this, go into Control Panel >Internet Options >Programs & press reset web settings, then you can set your home page to what you want on the general tab.

Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Download CCleaner and install it. (Please do not run the CCleaner utility yet.)

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.


Make sure all hidden files and folders are visible (Instructions )

Next, please 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.
Scan again with HijackThis and check the following items:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\se.dll/space.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\se.dll/space.html

After checking these items, close all browser windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked".

Find and delete these files (if they are still there):
Files:
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\SE.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm
c:\windows\system\msdmxm.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\intel32.exe

Start CCleaner, click Run CCleaner (bottom right)


Open the smitRem folder, then 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.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan.
Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log and the contents of the smitfiles.txt (C:\smitfiles.txt) log by using Add Reply.
Let us know if any problems persist.

Hi there.

Thanks once again. I did as instructed, and the three logs(HJT, Activescan and smitfiles) all show presence
of malware-mainly intel32.exe or infected files. I also deleted tthe intel32.exe program through HJT in safe mode, as well as manually but it always comes back and places the red icon on my desktop toolbar.

Here are the HJT, Activescan and smitfiles logs. I have marked the starting and ending points for convenience.

Step #1

Please download the Killbox.
Please do NOT run it yet.
  • Then please reboot into Safe Mode by restarting your computer and pressing F8 as your computer is booting up. Then select the Safe Mode option.
  • Once in Safe Mode, please run Killbox.
  • Select "Delete on Reboot".
  • Open the text file with these instructions in it, and copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\INTEL32.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DXVID.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\INTEL32.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DXVID.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\OLEADM.DLL
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\intel32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\oleadm.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\DOWNLOADED PROGRAM FILES\msits.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\internt.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\switchagreement.txt
    C:\SUHDLOG.DAT
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\gxlib.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\vmplay.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\intel32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\dxvid.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\oleadm.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\latest.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\sysvcs.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\msits.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\internt.exe
    C:\HijackThis\backups\backup-20051020-151809-338.inf
    C:\HijackThis\backups\backup-20051020-151809-889.inf


  • Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
  • Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

    If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again..

  • Let the system reboot.
Step #2

Scan again with HijackThis and check the following items:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dxvid] c:\windows\system\dxvid.exe /nocomm
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intel32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\intel32.exe

After checking these items, close all browser windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked".

Then reboot again

Step #3

Run Panda's online virus scan and perform a full system scan: Panda ActiveScan

Save the Panda ActiveScan log. Start HijackThis and perform a new scan.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply. I did as directed, and I now have a !KillBox folder that contains the malware
programs. However, these don't seem to be running now.

Here are the HJT, Activescan and KillBox logs.

Please do let me know if things are alright now, the Activescan log still reports an infection in Windows Registry (the first entry)....

Thanks once again,

Vikrant

Step #1

Find and delete thhis folder (if it is still there):
C:\!KillBox <= this folder


Step #2

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

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\clsid\{da9a0b1e-9b7b-11d3-b8a4-00c04f79641c}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\interface\{da9a0b1d-9b7b-11d3-b8a4-00c04f79641c}]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run sexcams_au]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run xxxmovie_se]

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.


Step #3

Run Panda's online virus scan and perform a full system scan: Panda ActiveScan

Save the Panda ActiveScan log. Start HijackThis and perform a new scan.


Use the Add Reply button to post your new logs back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps and I will review it when it comes in.

I don't think we can fix that registry issue, but it shouldn't be any problem...

How is your computer running?

This log looks clean!
  • Don't forget to re-hide all files and folders. To re-hide all files and folders:
    • 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.
  • This is a good time to set up protection against further attacks. Read the article behind this link "How did I get infected". If you don't already have them, you need an antivirus that is updated, a good firewall for example Kerio Personal Firewall or ZoneLabs Zone Alarm, a spyware blocker like SpywareBlaster and also IE-Spyads and spyware detection (Ad-aware SE and SpyBot S+D). All of these have good free versions available... be very cautious about any security software that advertises in popups or other intrusive ways, they are not only usually useless, but also often have malware in them....

    Instead of Internet Explorer, use a different browser like Opera, Mozilla or Firefox.

    Last, but not least, you need to keep Windows and Internet Explorer up to date by getting all the latest security patches that protects your computer.

    This can be accessed by going to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and following the prompts.

    Please post back if you are still having any problems....
