Welcome gurgeh to Geeks to Go!

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.

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.

***

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, please download and install AdAware SE 1.06.
Check Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first.

***

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

Hi

Been thro your list and followed the instructions to the letter. The only problem I had was with the Panda software at the end. I was using mozilla firefox to avoid the blocking IE was doing but it wouldn't run. Risked switching to IE and still no joy - but at least the browser seems clean now. Went to Panda site and downloaded Titanium version of freeware - made me take off McAffe which I did and still wouldn't run - so gave up - did run Spyware detector which showed a few low level risks, but I have been on line a while now and have had no pop ups. So apart from a higher level of spam mail than I have been used to, all seems ok. Will continue to use mozilla for a bit and run spybot after each session - and keep my fingers crossed. Was impressed with EWIDOS - found all the major problems and fixed them - something McAfee didn't do perhaps I should switch my allegiance.

Attached reports you requested - except Panda as explained

Hi Again

OK have checked again for the Max Secure Spyware detector but still cannot find it - perhaps one of the actions I did last week removed it? Otherwise it is hiding.

Sorry about the smit log didn't realise I hadn't sent all of it - have unfortunately just re run and full log is below

You said this today:

did run Spyware detector which showed a few low level risks


That's why I reminded you.

Based on your last log I still see it around. Let's remove it.

Please disable Spyware Doctor, as it may interfere with the fix. To disable Spyware Doctor:
  • Click the Spyware Doctor icon in the System Tray.
  • Click Settings.
  • Click Startup Settings under Pick a Category.
  • Uncheck Run at Windows startup.
  • Click Apply and Exit Spyware Doctor
Once your log is clean you can re-enable Spyware Doctor.

***

We need to disable your Microsoft AntiSpyware Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.

Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Click on Tools, Settings.
In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
Under Startup Options uncheck Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Reverse the process when you’ve carried out the advise.

***

Press Control-Alt-Del to enter the Task Manager.
Click on the Processes tab and end the following processes:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\SDSystemTray.exe
C:\Program Files\SpywareDetector\SDMonitor.exe

Exit the Task Manager when finished.

***

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

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SystemTraySD] C:\WINDOWS\system32\SDSystemTray.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MonitorSD] C:\Program Files\SpywareDetector\SDMonitor.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SDAutoLiveupdate] C:\WINDOWS\system32\LiveUpdateSD.exe -AUTO

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LanzarT2006] "C:\DOCUME~1\MIKENE~1.ASH\LOCALS~1\Temp\{C17709BF-ACBA-46AB-BA53-79EAAE3E826C}\{98032D6F-3EE6-4646-B68C-40BF012AC89B}\..\..\T2006tmp\Install.exe" /SETUP:"/l0x0009"

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

***

Use Windows Explorer to remove these files:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\SDSystemTray.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\LiveUpdateSD.exe

and this folder:

C:\Program Files\SpywareDetector\

Close Windows Explorer when you are done.

***

Download CleanUp!.
If that doesn’t work, use this link.
Here is a tutorial which describes its usage:
http://www.bleepingc...tutorial93.html

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu). Set the program up as follows:
*Click "Options"
*Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
*Put a check next to the following:
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files
  • Scan local drives for temporary files
  • Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program.

Once it's done, press Close. Reboot the system. This will remove files that were in use during the scan.

***

Please post me a fresh HijackThis log to check.

Is the computer running ok?
If so, shall I post you some tips for the future and close this topic?

Hi

You were right of course - it was hiding there all the time - followed instructions to the letter and think I have got rid of it - suspect it was blocking my MS Anti Spyware all along - not even sure where it came from. Just as they prob intended I got confused between that and spyware doctor.

Hi

Thankyou - yes the computer is just zpping along fine. That was a real blow to my confidence, thought I knew what I was doing, but clearly the real world has overtaken me! So yes any tips would be greatly appreciated. I am particulary interested in your view of MacAfee - it was totally lame in spotting any of the problems.

Thanks again

AntiVirus or AntiSpyware programs are as good as the definitions they use. New infections take some time to find their way in there. One company is faster that the other. Spytrooper is an adware type malware. Not all AntiVirus programs also detect adware.
That's why the tips included a mix of programs.

------

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 re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

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

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Re-enable system restore with the instructions from the 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. 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 always has 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 this 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 – Download and install Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with this 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 add 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.

You may want to check this fine article by Tony Klein: How did I get infected in the first place?

Glad I was able to help.
