Hello y'all

I cleaned a lot of this problem (or so it seems) using the tools outlined in the prerequisite steps. So far, I seem to have gotten my desktop and homepage back, but a few nasty things still remain according to both Hijack This and Ewido security. Plus, I have some strange Bloodhound Virus that keeps causing my Norton to pop-up without actually fixing it.

Here is my Hijack this log, an exact copy of what appears in my Norton pop up regarding Bloodhound, and my Ewido Scan report. Thank you very much to whomever is reading this for helping all us ignorant PC users - we need it.

Welcome Joccobean to Geeks to Go!

Please read these instructions carefully. You may want to print them. Copy the text to a Notepad file and save it to your desktop! We will need the file later.
Be sure to follow ALL instructions!



Download smitRem.exe version 2.7 and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

***

Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.

The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.On the left hand side of the main screen click update
Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed, close Ewido for now.

***

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, please download and install AdAware SE 1.06.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

***

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:
http://www.pchell.co.../safemode.shtml

***

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.
Post me the contents of the smitfiles.txt log as you post back.

***

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

***

Now open Ewido Security Suite:* Click on scanner
* Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
* During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
* When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
* Save the report to your desktop
Reboot your computer.

***

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

***

Post back to this topic with a fresh HijackThis log, the latest Ewido log and the smitfiles.txt

I really appreciate you looking into this for me -- I would be completely lost without the help! Here is a fresh Hijack log, an Ewido report, and the smitfiles text in that order. By the way, how would I prevent this stuff from happening again. I'm sure y'all would hate to see me post the same problem again 2 months from now!

Thanks again

Open HijackThis
Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://www.security2...earch.php?qq=%1

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running.
Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

***

Reboot the computer.

***

Run the Free use Panda Active Scan.
You need to use Internet Explorer for this scan.
  • Click on Check Now!
  • A new window will appear; fill in the boxes (Country, State, email addy)
  • Click on Scan Now! >
    If you have never used ActiveScan before, you will be prompted to install an ActiveX control (asinst.cab) : click on Install. Panda will install the component, and then install the latest signature files.
  • From "Select a device to scan...", choose "My Computer"
  • Allow the scan to run. It'll take a while.
  • When complete, click on "See Report", and then on "Save report"; save it to a convenient location.
  • I will need you to post that report in your next reply; simply open the text file, then copy/paste the content here.

Sorry this took so long to reply, haven't been home in a while!

I tried to run the Active Scan, and I got the Active X file downloaded, but the program froze and I had to reboot my computer. Now when I go back to the website, nothing happens after I fill out my information and click Scan Now. My computer just sits like this:


ActiveScan Has Started...




|\
______________________| \
| Check "Yes" to Continue \
|______________________ /
| /
|/

Security information:
blah, blah, blah

Cheesy picture, I know, but couldn't paste a screen shot. Anyway, the box
where I download the file never comes up again, and my computer just sits
there and never makes a sound. I waited thinking maybe it was doing the
scan, but usually something happens to give that away. I have no idea if the
Active X file is still on my PC. I've run a system search for the file and checked
the obvious places myself. Am I missing something totally obvious here??!?

Let's check.
Move to Start > Settings > Control Panel
Double click Add/Remove Programs.

Can you see Panda Active Scan in there?

Remove it and reboot the computer.

Let's try again:

You will need to allow the popups for this site!

Run the Free use Panda Active Scan.
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on 1click active scan (top right hand corner) to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
Post the contents of the Panda scan report
