I came in contact with the "spyware removers" WASP and PSGuard last night. This morning is when I realized what they really were. Now, my homepage is changed into a "security page" and my background on my desktop has a WARNING: Spyware and adware detected on this computer...blah blah blah. First off, I would like thank you guys for helping out myself and others in these difficult situations. I'm a wee bit savvy with computers but spyware and adware are all new to me so the help is much needed and appreciated. :woot: Thank you again and here's my HijackThis.

Just wanted to add another symptom that I'm experiencing. My computer is definitely running slower especially when I'm logging onto my desktop. Also, I've noticed that every time I start up ewido brings up an alert about Trojan download. I'm only given the option to clean it and that's what I do. I went through Spybot, ewido, and Ad Aware and got rid of the quarantined objects which were trojan and PSGuard. Hope the information is helpful. :tazz: Thanks!

Hi keelieawn
Welcome to GeeksToGo! I will be helping you in cleaning up your computer!

Please print out these directions for use if/when you cannot access this page.

One thing I need you to do first is to place HiJackThis into a permanent folder. The reason for this is so that when HJT makes backups, they will be stored in a safe place.
*Go to Start > My Computer > and double click on C:.
* Now right click an open area and click New > folder and change the folder name to HJT.
* Extract HijackThis from the zipped file into this new folder.

Next, we need to disable Ewido, as it may interfere with the fix.
From the system tray:

* Right-click the system tray icon and uncheck real time protection.


or From within Ewido -
* Under 'Your security status', if the real time protection is active, deactivate it by clicking 'real time protection' until the status says 'inactive'.
We will use Ewido later.


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.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

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!

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.
Open HJT and click on Config, then Misc Tools, and then press the Delete an NT service.. button. When it opens enter AVKernel then pres OK.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items and click FIX CHECKED:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://ie.redirect.h...sario&pf=laptop

O14 - IERESET.INF: START_PAGE_URL=http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iehome&locale=EN_US&c=Q304&bd=presario&pf=laptop
O23 - Service: AVKernel - WinSoftware, Ltd. - C:\Program Files\WinAntiVirus 2005 Pro\AVKernel.exe




Close HiJackThis.

Find and delete the following files/folders, if present:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\hpC4B0.tmp
C:\Program Files\WinAntiVirus 2005 Pro\ (folder)


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.


Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.
  • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
  • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
  • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
  • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

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.
- Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
- 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, along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of smitfiles.txt and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.

ok, here it goes! :)

:woot: There are actually only a few problems right now that I am experiencing after I did the instructions that you told me to do. I mentioned in the PM that I sent you that everything seemed a bit choppy. Such as my slideshow screen saver. But this morning, it's not choppy at all! Perhaps it needed a little rest in stead of just restarting it? :)

The problem that I am still having is my task bar looking small and more like how the old windows used to have them. I've tried to get it back to how it was but I've had no luck.

The only problem that I ran into while doing the instructions was that when I was in HJT and tried to delete an NT Service called AVKernel, it said that that name didn't exist. I went ahead and finished your instructions but came across another problem. When I was trying to search around for the files/folders that I was supposed to delete, I couldn't find them anywhere. Except for the WinAntiVirus folder. When I put it in the search it comes up with a message saying that C:\Program Files\WinAntiVirus 2005 Pro\ refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Please make sure that the disk is inserted or that you are connected to the internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located then the information might have been moved to a different location. :tazz:

Other than those things, everything went smoothly! So, here are my logs as well as a new HJT. Thanks!

Alright! Just a few more steps! :tazz:

You may wish to copy these directions to a text file and save it to your desktop as you will need to copy and paste from this while you may not be able to connect to the internet.

The reason your task bar looks the way it does is your display settings are set to 'classic' at the moment.

To restore this and set it back to XP-theme, rightclick on your desktop > properties > tab Appearances and choose Windows XP style again under windows and buttons.
Click apply and OK.

Now, to delete on more file:
1) Please download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop but do NOT run it yet.

2) 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.

3) Once in Safe Mode, please run Killbox.

4) Select "Delete on Reboot".

5) 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:\Documents and Settings\Valued Customer\Favorites\Antivirus Test Online.url

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

7) 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 and let me know if you are still having problems.

Glad to see we could help! :tazz:

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep malware from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein
