Hi

Two days ago I got really bad case of virus/trojan/spyware flood. When it rains it poors.

Anyway, evrerything from svchop.exe, zolker011.dll, ztoolb011.dll, oleext.dll, flag.bla, and infamous desktop.html and warnhp.html which mounts onto your desktop.

By reading topics on this forum :tazz: I managed to get rid of all but this little sucker - SPYW_MORWILBAR.A, and it's driving me nuts. :)

I used almost everything to clean my system, (and by the results (logs), I've manage to clean it thoroughly).
-CWShredder
-aboutbuster5
-ewido
-CleanUp
-smitRem
-KillBox
-TrojanHunter
-Hijack-this
-registry check
-manual removal


At the end I scaned with both Panda online, and Trend House Microcall.

These are the logs from both of them

Activescan - Panda

Sorry for the delay. I've checked for replies on hourly basis for four days after posting, and then I thought that no one will reply to me. :)

And Panda results

Incident Status Location

Adware:adware/bondreal No disinfected Windows Registry
Adware:Adware/IST.ISTBar No disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\M&M\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar\javainstaller.jar-2cb7cc7d-7624a160.zip[InstallerApplet.class]

Somehow I got rid of SPYW_MORWILBAR.A (psguard) , but now I have Bondreal instead of Psguard.

My main problem is that I can't remove it from Windows Registry. I would use regedit, but I don't know the name of the file/virus to search for. :) The Ist.istbar I'll remove myself :tazz:

Thanks again

There are quite a few programs available that offer protection features to help keep a computer from getting infected. While this is normally a helpful feature, it can keep a victim from making the changes necessary to clean their comptuer. Please read the following and uninstall or disable those that apply to your machine.

These programs need to be uninstalled

AdWatch

These programs can just be disabled

Microsoft Antispyware
TeaTimer
SpySweeper
Win Patrol
Spyware Guard
PSGuard
Pestpatrol
Regrun
Diamonds Process controller


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.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan 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!

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.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items and click FIX CHECKED:
===================================================
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

===================================================

Close 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. 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.
Let us know if any problems persist.
