OK. When you hit Ignore, all you are do is telling HJT to hide them.

We have to make sure that the infection is gone and not just masked.

PLease do the following:

1. Download "Registry Search Tool" (RegSrch.vbs) from HERE

2. Start it and paste in ssqrs.

3. Wait for it to complete the search, click ok at the prompt.

4. Then when wordpad opens, copy the text as a reply into this thread.

Regards,

Trevuren

Well Kelly Jo,

Guess what? It is still there. I am going to try a little cocktail.


1. I need you to remove those items from the ignore list

Run HJT>>MiscTools

Press Ignore list button under Configuration.

Press Delete All


2. Now please rerun the previous search and post the results.

Regards,

Trevuren

Cocktail? How about a professional massage? :tazz:

Okay, believe me...I've done the whole delete ignore list but it doesn't. The second I close it out and bring HJT back up, they are still there. But...just for you I did it again. Same results as before. I seriously have not had any pop ups since I put them on ignore. I realize that didn't actually solve the problem but it has been a nice temporary fix.

1. Please download the Killbox by Option^Explicit.

Note:In the event you already have Killbox, this is a new version that I need you to download.
  • Save it to your desktop
2. Backup the registry by going to Start>Run> and type "regedit" without the quotes. Then on the file menu choose ‘export’ in XP. Export the file to your Desktop.

If a restore of the registry is required in case of emergency, just click on the exported regfile on your desktop, and answer YES to the question whether you want to merge this file with the registry. Wait until you get a message saying something like Merge Successfull.

3. Launch Notepad, and copy/paste everything in the codebox below into the new document, including the word REGEDIT4. Go up to "File Save As" and click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files" and save it to your desktop as fixme.reg.

4. Locate fixme.reg on your Desktop and double-click on it. You will receive a prompt similar to: "Do you wish to merge the information into the registry?". Answer Yes and wait for a message to appear similar to Merged Successfully.

5. Please double-click Killbox.exe to run it.

6. Select
  • "Delete on Reboot".
  • "End Explorer Shell While Killing File"
7. Please copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C

C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\ssqrs.dll



8. Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".

9. Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.[/list]
If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

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

I went ahead and ran the RegSearch as you instructed me before. It's still there BUT it's only finding it twice instead of 8 times. I will post that as well.

Hmmm. Maybe I jumped the gun but I went ahead and found those two locations as I posted above and deleted them myself. I ran another RegSearch and this time it said it found no ssqrs files. Does this mean it's gone :tazz:

On a side note...I've tried to add this reply twice and it pauses for a bit and then takes me to a "page cannot be displayed" error message. I keep hitting "back" hoping that it will take it eventually.

1. 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.
2. REBOOT into Safe Mode

3. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the C:\Windows\System32 Folder.

4. Locate, and DELETE All files named srqss. They will have various extensions, such as:
  • ini
  • ini1
  • ini2
  • bak1
  • bak2
  • and so on.
5. REBOOT your system

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

Regards,

Trevuren

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

Thanks for your patience and help. I hope other users can read this thread and be able to clean their computers as well. Mine seemed to be stubborn but it worked in the end and I learned a lot from this. I have made a small donation to your account via Pay Pal. Thanks again!
