** I have updated my scans while waiting for replies, scroll to bottom of this post for my updates**


Hello:

I need some help here. I am not sure where it came from, but my pc (running 98 SE, AMD-K6 450) has become infected with this PS Guard Virus. I have run my AV (Norton 2005, recently installed) upon installation it found and repaired, then removed 2 Trojans. One was Trojan.Desktophijack.B virus. The other one I missed its name. After scanning with my AV, I ran Spybot S&D; it removed several more items. After that I ran my Ad-aware; it also detected more PS Guard files and quarentined and then deleted them. I then scanned with Hijackthis and here is my log. I have a feeling that my Ps Guard is still lurking here somewhere. It hasn't automaticly started scanning on startup, however, it comes and goes at times. Any help would be greatly appreicated. I understand ya'll are busy, so please no rush and take your time. I am in no hurry, I just need some expert advice here.

Thank you. (also- I have noticed that my IE browser won't allow me to access certain web pages, I have to use only Firefox)

Once again thank you for your time and help. Newest Hijack log to follow here. Done today (November 9, 2005). Some problems I seem to still be having; my clock seems to slow down and change time at random. It will start being off by a few minutes and then before you know it it is almost an hour off. The date is slow to change also. At start up I get this message before the password screen :

"Unable to load the dynamic link library: msnp32.dll
The system cannot find the file specified.
Some or all of the fewture is not available: Microsoft Network"

Other than the two things above I have not noticed much more for the time being. Do my logs look good? Did I take care of the problem? Thank you for your time.

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :tazz:
I apologize for the delay getting to your log, the helpers here are very busy.

Before we can get started on fixing your problem you must change the location of Hijackthis. It should not run directly from your desktop or a temp directory. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and download and unzip hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.

Once you have Hijackthis running from a permanent folder, please reboot and post a new hijackthis log.

:tazz: Hello Sam and thank you for giving me a hand here. I don't think I completely understand what I am doing wrong with the downloading and opening of the Hijackthis. Here is what I am doing; When I save the file I open to c:, then Program Files. That is where the file is being saved. However, when I unzip the file I get a message that tells me it is saved in a Temp. folder and I need to move it. Every time I do, upon unzipping I get the same message. I guess what I am saying here is that I don't fully understand how to "create a directory" Your assistance with this would be appreciated.

Do I need to create the folder in c:program files\hijackthis first? Before I attempt the download? I will try that now then if it works I will post the log, if no log appears shortly then I don't understand what I am doing wrong here.

Thanks again for your time and help.

Yep, that's perfect! :tazz:

Please download SmitRem
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.


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.
* if you have trouble getting into Safe mode go here for more info.



Once in Safe mode, follow these steps:
  • 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.


Post the log file from Smitrem as well as a new hijackthis log.

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then close all other windows--you should only see HijackThis on your Desktop--and click the Fix Checked button.

:tazz: Okay. Did as instructed. I did not find a file named gxlib.exe after I fixed checked in Hijack.

I ran Panda, it did not mention any files were unable to be removed. However, about 1/2 way through the online Panda scan I got a pop-up that said:

"hposm
This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists contact the vendor"

The details to this were:

HPOSM caused an invalid page fault in
module OLEAUT32.DLL at 0187:653ba65c.

Don't know if that caused a problem or not.

Here are the logs from Panda and then Hijack --

Okay, I deleted all the Temp file. I am still getting this message at start up. :

"Unable to load the dynamic link library: msnp32.dll
The system cannot find the file specified.
Some or all of the feature is not available: Microsoft Network"

I reformatted this pc back in August and didn't have that problem Until about October. I am not sure why it is showing up. I do not use a network I only have one pc and I connect through DSL.

Any ideas on this? :)

Also upon the first start up this morning I had this warning again:


"hposm
This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists contact the vendor"

The details to this were:

HPOSM caused an invalid page fault in
module OLEAUT32.DLL at 0187:653ba65c.

But after I deleted all the Temp files, I went back into msconfig and turned off all the programs that I do not need to run at start up and rebooted. It has not appeared so far.

So maybe everything is taken care of now?

Your thoughts?

And thank you for your help thus far. I appreiciate all your time here :) :tazz:

Do you have your Windows disc?

If so, follow the instructions here to extract a new copy of msnp32.dll
http://support.micro...122120121120120

Let me know if that resolves the problem.

:) Hi Sam! Thank you for your continued support and help here. I followed the instructions you provided and extracted the file off the systems disk I have. I got a message that the file installed was sucessful. However upon a start up after, the message still appeared. Would that be a file on the systems disk or perhaps my Microsoft Money 98 or Microsoft Home Essentials? I pulled this one (which stated it was sucessful) from the systems disk. Is there another step that I need to take to load the file or install it? That message is really just an annoyance not a problem. I was just curious how the file was lost. If that can't be resolved I don't think it will pose a problem. If there is nothing more I can do, I really truely thank you for your time and assistance here!

You guys are great! :tazz:

**One other question: How often should I run preventative scans and which scans would those be?

I haven't used a Windows 98 machine in a long time, so don't take my instructions too literally. I may be a bit off on the details.

Go to Control Panel -> Network Connections
You should see your connection listed there. Right click and select Properties.
Hilight Client for Microsoft Networks and select Uninstall.
Then reinstall it.

Reboot and let me know if you still get the error.


As far as malware scans, I would recommend at least weekly. More than that if you do high risk activities on the Internet like file sharing. Here's some other suggestions for you.

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • 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.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
