PSGuard Strikes Again! [resolved]

My girlfriend's computer, a machine running Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4) has been hit with PSGuard, which just refuses to die. It's done the following:

- Hijacked the Active Desktop with a black background, "Your Computer May be Infected with Spyware", etc, and a link to download PSGuard.

- Webpages have about a 50/50 chance of loading up properly (sometimes they'll freeze halfway through loading, or not load at all). When this happens, reloading the page will usually get it to load properly (sometimes it takes 2-3 reloads, though).

- Files do not download properly (the bar will either freeze at 0% progress or sometimes 1%).

- Applications will randomly lock up (for example, when Microsoft Word is loading a file, the application will freeze and give me a "Not Responding" error).

After running CCleaner, I've tried running Avast! Antivirus, AdAware 6.0, Spybot, Ewido Security Suite, Trojan Hunter, and Sysclean, both in regular and Safe modes, at least a few times each. Spybot picked up 20-something files related to PSGuard the first time it ran (in regular mode), but after cleaning them, it hasn't picked up anything since (cleaning those files didn't seem to help matters at all). Ewido picked up 21 infected files (also in regular mode), most of them related to PSGuard.

After Ewido cleaned the infected files and I rebooted, the Active Desktop started showing up as a plain black background without text (it still covers up the desktop picture, though). After this, I tried running WinsockXPFix, hoping that PSGuard had just messed with the data ports and that they just needed to be reset. The computer still has problems with lockups, page loads, and downloads as described above, which leads me to believe that some part of PSGuard is still on the system.

Last, I noticed that a suspicious-looking program called "Support.com Task Scheduler" keeps trying to connect to the Internet, but I always tell ZoneAlarm to deny it. When I ran Autoruns, I noticed it as a startup application; I tried disabling it, but it still tries to connect to the Internet.

You guys seem to be the only ones around who have any luck helping with PSGuard removal, so I figured I'd give you a try, as I'm almost ready to give up on this. Is there anything else I need to do before posting a Hijack This log?

:tazz: thanks for the compliment, but without this great team here on Geeks I wouldn't be the helper I am today.

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!


Please remove WinTools, Toolbar, and/or Search Toolbar.
Move to Start > Settings > Control Panel
Double click Add/Remove Programs.
Within Add/Remove programs click the "Install/Uninstall" tab or click the "Change or Remove Programs" button.
Within this section you will see a listing of programs that are currently installed that support this feature. If the program I’m advising you to uninstall is listed within this list, highlight it and click the Add/Remove or uninstall option or button.

***

Please download noahdfear's smitRem.exe©. Save the file to your desktop. Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

***

Please download the trial version of ewido security suite.Install ewido security suite
When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".

Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
The program will prompt you to update click the OK button

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.

***

Please update AdAware SE 1.06 to the latest definitions.

***

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

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = about:blank

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapp...rch/search.html

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page_bak = about:blank

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [LDM] \Program\

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

***

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.

***

Reboot back into Windows.

Post me a new HijackThis Log, the contents of smitfiles.txt and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

WinTools, Toolbar, and Search Toolbar did not show up on the Add/Remove Programs list; the closest things I saw were Yahoo! Toolbar and Kai's Power Tools, both of which I removed. Also, when I went to uncheck "Security Info" under Display (the second-to-last step), the option did not exist; in fact, there was no "Desktop" tab under Display. There was, however, a "Web" tab, which did not contain anything resembling a "Security Info" box (maybe you're thinking of Windows XP?), so I'm assuming it's okay.

AdAware picked up 7 objects and Ewido picked up 1, all of which I cleaned as per your instructions. As of the final reboot, the desktop has changed to a nice, default blue. :) I'm posting replies to you from my computer, and everything I installed/updated was done via JumpDrive; I'm still afraid to access the Internet from my g/f's computer for fear of re-infection. Anyway, here are the new logs:

Weldone, this looks much better.

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 Local Disks 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. Let's see what Panda has to say.

Glad to see that it's looking better! Unfortunately, the computer still won't download files from the Internet at all (I tested it on a couple of files, and the download status bar doesn't budge), so naturally, it doesn't want to download Panda's ActiveX controls. Any other scanners that might do the job?

See if you can do this one:
Trend-Micro Housecall Scan
  • Please go HERE to run Housecall.
  • Note: you must use Internet Explorer, other browsers will not work.
  • Under "Scan your PC", please click Scan now. It's free!
  • Select your location and click the Go button.
  • Click the red magnifying glass button.
  • Select Complete Scan.
  • Please be patient while Housecall downloads.
  • Please allow the ActiveX Control and when prompted click install
  • Put a check next to My Computer
  • Leave the following checked:
    • Scan for Spyware
      Check security vulnerabilities
  • Click the Next button.
  • It will download the latest scan engine and pattern files.
  • When the definitions have been downloaded, the scan will start.
  • After it's done scanning it will take you to the summary page.
  • Click the Next button.
  • Click the drop-down to choose delete or remove on each bad guy found, if you receive a prompt click OK.
  • Click the Next button to move onto the recovery (final) portion of the scan.
  • After everything has been removed, please click the show button on everything.
  • Highlight all the of text and press CTRL + C to copy the text.

Unfortunately, Housecall has the same problem--the "Downloading ActiveX Controls" bar goes no higher than 2%. I tried disabling ZoneAlarm and Avast! OnAccess Scanner, then attempting the download, but it doesn't make a difference. Thinking that Internet Explorer itself may have been corrupted, I tried installing Avant browser (since we don't have the Windows 2000 installation disc handy) and running Housecall from that, but that didn't work either.

Oddly enough, just as a test, I tried using Spybot's update function to download the new definition files, and that worked just fine, despite the fact that the file was over 800k in size! Yet, whenever I try to download something through a browser, it freezes up on me. The plot thickens, apparently... :tazz:

  • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  • Click once on the Security tab
  • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  • Click once on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
Close Internet Explorer and reopen. See if you can run Panda now.

If not, use Avant Browser to run this one:

Please go to the TrendMicro website HERE
  • Click Check my PC now
  • On the next page it will verify that Trendmicro scan can be run.
  • There should be 4 green checkmarks, if any of them stay a red X please let me know which one(s)
  • Read the agreement, then click continue with Next Step
  • Wait for the scanner to load, if you get a security warning about the Trend-Micro applet, click YES
  • It will install "Core-Packages", then please run a full system scan - let me know how many infected items it found and if any of them couldn't be cleaned/deleted and the name/location

I tried changing the IE security settings and running all of the online scans (Panda and both Housecall links) from both IE and Avant, but I just can't seem to get them to download. I've tried them with both ZoneAlarm/Avast! OnAccess on and off (in case one of them was being overzealous), but to no avail. In the process of all this futzing, I noticed a few weird things:

1) When I tried to run Housecall on the Europe server (the latest one you posted to me), it told me that I didn't have Java virtual machine installed, despite the fact that my g/f's computer is running Sun Java Platform. I checked the Advanced settings in IE, and Java was enabled. I checked Add/Remove Programs, and there were 3 versions of Java (Build 1, 4, and 5). So, I uninstalled them, reinstalled Java, and rebooted, then Housecall was able to detect Java. Weird...

2) Lately, I've been checking GtG from my g/f's computer (saves a lot of trips to the living room). Weirdly enough, when I try to read your posts, sometimes the browser doesn't show all the replies it's supposed to. For instance, it might show my original post and the first two replies, the first 4, or no replies at all (it seems to be random). Usually, I'll reload and everything will be okay. This happens in both IE and Avant. Weird as this is, it's nothing new, as I was having similar problem when I first posted my cry for help.

3) Avant is REALLY unstable; it freezes up on me a lot, causing "this program is not responding and needs to be shut down" errors (which has been aggravating the you-know-what out of me).

4) Housecall keeps topping out at 38% of the first download (the "Opening Trend Micro" screen). I tested it 3 times, all with the same result. I've given it about 30-45 minutes each time, but it really seems to like 38% for some reason (considering that it only takes about 1-2 minutes to download the first 38%, do you think I'm giving it enough time?).

5) QuickTime has been popping up randomly in the System Tray; I've had to uninstall it twice (it seems to have gone away for now). This is strange, as I haven't visited any sites that have had anything to do with QuickTime from my girlfriend's computer, especially since we started this epic battle against spyware.

Apparently, something is interfering with my browser-based downloads, and until we can figure out what it is, online scans don't seem to be an option (which, of course, seems to be a nasty Catch-22, as I'm willing to bet that the same thing that's interfering with the downloads is stealthing itself and is only detectable by online scans). Any other ideas? :tazz: Would it help to re-post any fresh logs from HJT or Ewido?

(By the way, when unforeseen snags like the Java reinstallation thing come up, I'm trying to take logical steps in the interest of saving correspondence time. However, if I'm doing too much independent messing around with of things, please let me know and I'll be absolutely sure not to do anything unless you tell me to).

Let's check what is wrong.

Please RIGHT-CLICK HERE to download Silent Runner's.
  • Save it to the desktop.
  • Run Silent Runner's by doubleclicking the "Silent Runners" icon on your desktop.
  • You will receive a prompt:
    • Do you want to skip supplementary searches?
      click NO
  • You will see a text file appear on the desktop - it's not done, let it run (it won't appear to be doing anything!)
  • Once you receive the prompt All Done!, open the text file on the desktop, copy that entire log, and paste it here.
*NOTE* If you receive any warning message about scripts, please choose to allow the script to run.

I'd re-install Avast, and uninstall comcast support.

***


Right click on this link and select Save as.

http://www.spywarein...tools/IEFIX.reg

Save it as iefix.reg to your desktop. Make sure the select type as All files.


Double click iefix.reg, and ok the prompt. Reboot.

***
  • From the Start menu, select Run.
  • In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
  • Select the OK button.
  • Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
  • Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.
Please let me know what happens and if there's any change.

Uninstalling ComcastSUPPORT (that's where the mysterious "Support.com Task Scheduler" was coming from) seems to have REALLY boosted system performance (especially boot time), so it must have been quite the memory hog.

I uninstalled and went to re-install Avast, and it told me that it would cause conflicts with ZoneAlarm. In light of this, I decided to install AVG instead, which seems to be working just fine.

After running iefix.reg and rebooting, I tested the Internet connection (loading pages and downloading), and IE is working much better! The GtG forums now load flawlessly, and (miracle of miracles!) I successfully completed a 900k+ download through IE! Iefix.reg certainly seems to have lived up to its name. :tazz:

When I went to run SFC, it IMMEDIATELY detected an unrecognized system file and wanted me to insert the Windows 2000 installation disc. When I told it that I wanted to keep the unrecognized file, it continued its scan and found another unrecognized file right away. Just for a lark, I kept clicking "yes" to see how many it would detect; it found a bunch of unrecognized files, and the progress bar barely moved. As I mentioned before, I don't have ready access to the Windows 2000 disc (which is probably at my girlfriend's parents' house), though I may be able to get ahold of it when we go back for Thanksgiving break if it's a crucial matter. Still, the internet connection seems to be working much better regardless.

What next, o great and helpful one?
