recent symptoms from 21/12/05:
-spyaxe program popped up,
-unoffical/fake malware task bar infection warning every 5 seconds (when clicked takes to a website),
-on start up windows asks for the OS to be authorised by net connection check, if not registered/checked, i cant log in.
-internet explorer start up page diverts to www.needupdate.com
-spyware detector programs show findings of trojan.popuper, whenu.savenow, VX2look2me, joltid p2p, internet optimiser, trojan startpage ADH, etc.. programs seem to differ every few hours.
-ive found .exe files in system32 folder called: wssearchnet.exe, mscornet.exe, nvctrl.exe, hpB95c.tmp, hp875C.tmp, wpa.bak, wpa.dbl, hpE03F.tmp, ldE482.tmp, hpBFF5.tmp, hpEE97.tmp, msvol.tlb, ncompat.tlb, these seem to change and duplicate every so often, with the recently modified date of some updating every minute or so.

ive bee through your sites "read this first procedure" and have tryed: adaware se, spyware doctor, ewido, hijackthis, cwshredder, cleanup, pskill, windows update, all live updated with the only symptom disapearing being the fake windows taskbar warning and the spyaxe program popup.

some programs attempt to delete a file only to have it apear again seconds later. i can handle some parts of the infection, but it changes and grows constantly.

the symptoms still currently apearing are:
-on start up windows asks for the OS to be authorised by net connection check, if not registered/checked, i cant log in.
-internet explorer start up page diverts to www.needupdate.com
-spyware detector programs show findings of trojan.popuper, whenu.savenow, VX2look2me, joltid p2p, internet optimiser, trojan startpage ADH, etc.. programs seem to differ every few hours, and detector programs dont seem to delete any of the problems.
-ive found .exe files in system32 folder called: wssearchnet.exe, mscornet.exe, nvctrl.exe, hpB95c.tmp, hp875C.tmp, wpa.bak, wpa.dbl, hpE03F.tmp, ldE482.tmp, hpBFF5.tmp, hpEE97.tmp, msvol.tlb, ncompat.tlb
these seem to change and duplicate every so often, with the recently modified date of some updating every minute or so.

Hi phresh and Welcome to GeekstoGo!

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.
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.

ran the system for a few hours since taking your advice, and so far all the symptoms have disapeared,

the net start up page doesnt divert anymore,
the files in system32 are gone (wow i never thought theyd go),
windows doesnt ask for auth on startup anymore,
nothing pops up atm,
and the cleaning programs say everythings good.

thankyou for your help, i think we can mark this resolved. lets hope i dont have to bother you guys again. :tazz:

Sorry for the delays,I been a bit under the weather the last couple of days.

Lets make sure nothing is left laying around.

Download WinPFind:
http://www.bleepingc...es/winpfind.php

Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"

Don't use it yet

Reboot into SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:
http://service1.syma...src=sec_doc_nam

From the WinPFind folder-> Doubleclick WinPFind.exe and Click "Start Scan"

It will scan the entire System, so please be patient

One you see "Scan Complete"-> a log (WinPFind.txt) will be automatically generated in the WinPFind folder


Restart Normal and Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post along with the WinPFind log.
