  2. If you still need someone give me a PM.
  3. Liz you are welcome, now moving this topic into the Hijackthis logs resolved forum. Topic has been closed. Glad we could help. If you're the topic starter, and need this topic reopened, please contact a staff member with the address of the thread. Everyone else please begin a New Topic.
  4. HI Liz, I would recommend you change all passwords you use, other than that.... CNGRATULATINS! at last, your system is clean and free of spyware! Want to keep it that way? Here are some simple steps you can take to reduce the chance of infection in the future. Please do these steps as soon as possible if you haven't already. 1. Visit Windows Update: Make sure that you have all the Critical Updates recommended for your operating system and IE. The first defense against infection is a properly patched OS. a. Windows Update: http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp 2. Adjust your security settings for ActiveX: Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK. Now press "Custom Level." In the ActiveX section, set the first option, 'Download signed controls', to 'Prompt; set the second option, 'Download unsigned controls', to 'Disable'; and finally, set 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'Disable'. 3. Download and install the following free programs a. SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html b. SpywareGuard: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareguard.html c. IE/Spyad: https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm d. Bugoff: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4308.html 4. Install Spyware Detection and Removal Programs: You may also want to consider installing either or both of AdAware (free version) and Spybot S&D (freeware). Use these programs to regularly scan your system for and remove many forms of spyware/malware. a. AdAware: http://www.lavasoft.de/ b. Spybot S&D: http://security.kolla.de/index.php?lang=en&page=download Before adding any other Spyware Detection and Removal programs always check the Rogue Anti-Spyware List for programs known to be misleading, mistaken, or just outright "Foistware". You will find the list here: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware,htm 5. Install 'Spoofstick" Spoofstick is a simple browser extension that helps users detect spoofed (fake) websites. This extension is free and installs in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. a. http://www.corestreet.com/spoofstick 6. 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 susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. See the links below: a. ZoneAlarm b. Kerio 7. Reset System Restore If you are using Windows ME or Windows XP, please reset your System Restore. a. Turn off system restore by right clicking on "My Computer" and go to "Properties"->"System Restore" and check the box for "Turn off System Restore". Click "Apply" and then "OK". Restart your computer. Reverse these steps and turn "System Restore" back on and create a new restore point. 8. Use GoogleToolbar - It's free, blocks popups and takes seconds to install. Use the toolbar without the advanced features enabled(check this during install), the toolbar is completely inert--it doesn't send any information to Google whatsoever as you surf. a. GoogleToolbar 9. RegScrubXP 3.25 - Safely cleans junk out of the Windows. 2000/XP system registry. All changes made to the registry are fully restorable to it's original condition. a. RegScrubXP 3.25 10. Online Virus Scans - Run these on a regular basis(I usually do about once a month or suspect a problem): a. http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm b. http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/ c. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ d. http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php 11. Alternative Browsers - Using an alternative browser other than IE will IMMENSELY reduce the risk of infection: a. Firefox<==my #1 choice b. Avant c. Opera Good luck, and thanks for coming to our forums for help with your security and malware issues.
  5. Hi Liz, here is an easier way to cleanout those files: Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure all are checked and then press *ok* to remove.
  6. Hi Liz, your link to HijackFree won't work for me. ================ Double-click on KillBox to launch it, then click to enable Delete on Reboot. Copy and paste each file into the file name box, then click the red button with the X after each. It will ask you if you want to reboot each time you click it, answer NO until after you've pasted the last file name, at which time you should answer Yes.

Report back on how your computer is running.
  7. Liz, go ahead and post the report after your done with the other scan.
  8. Liz, after consulting with other experts we feel that the two files you scanned at Jotti's are in fact bad. Double-click on KillBox to launch it, then click to enable Delete on Reboot. Copy and paste each file into the file name box, then click the red button with the X after each. It will ask you if you want to reboot each time you click it, answer NO until after you've pasted the last file name, at which time you should answer Yes. C:\log.txt C:\win.txt C:\windows.txt C:\WINDOWS\pcconfig.dat C:\WINDOWS\uccspecb.sys C:\WINDOWS\ojojo.dll Also for peace of mind please do the following online scans: http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/ Report back any files that cannot be removed. Let me know how your computer is running.
  9. Hi Liz, I need you to go HERE and browse to the files below, one at a time then Submit for analysis. Please copy and paste the Scanner results and Status back here. C:\WINDOWS\pcconfig.dat C:\WINDOWS\uccspecb.sys
  10. Liz, I need you to do the following as well: Download WinPFind.zip from HERE and extract it to your C:\ folder. This will create a folder called WinPFind in the C:\ folder. Disconnect from the net and stay offline until all steps are complete. Perform these steps for each account. Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot. From the l2mfix folder on your desktop, double click l2mfix.bat and select option 4 to Merge Winlogon Notify Defaults, Press enter, wait a few moments. Then double-click WinPFind.exe inside c:\WinPFind to launch the program. Then click on the Start Scan button and wait for it to finish. This program will scan large amounts of files on your computer for known patterns so please be patient while it works as it can take a while, upwards to 30 minutes or more. When it is done, it will show the results of the scan. Click on the Copy to Clipboard button and then paste the contents of your clipboard in your next reply.
  11. Hi Liz, when your done removing the following items, can you post the exact messages your getting for the 2 'new hardware found' boxes?

  18. culinfi, =============== Let's look for, and delete, any program segments(prefetches) that might be present, and are associated with the 'problems' we're trying to remove from this system. To do this, let's: 1) Click "Start | Search", then search for each of these program's base name(s), in all files and folders: fpapli.exe* 2) Then if any are found in the 'prefetch' folder, delete them. Look closely, since the 'base' name will have a bunch of random numbers and letters attached to it. =============== Next, Open a command prompt by: 1. Clicking "Start", then "Run...". 2. Enter "cmd" (without the quotes). 3. Enter "services.msc" (without the quotes). - Now, locate and 'stop' the following services, if present: Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Helper ( 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I) owner ... (C:\WINNT\system32\addvq32.exe) Look carefully, since the name of the service (above) can be anywhere in the entry; also be careful not to 'stop' any required system services. =============== Run HiJackThis then: 1. Click "Config..." 2. Click "Misc Tools" 3. Click "Open Process manager" - Next, while holding down the CTRL key, locate (if present) and click on (highlight) each of the following: C:\WINNT\system32\addvq32.exe C:\WINNT\system32\fpapli.exe C:\WINNT\system32\addfy.exe Now double-check and make sure that only those item(s) above are highlighted, then click "Kill process". Now, click "Refresh", check again, and repeat this step if any remain. =============== Now, let's open a command prompt and unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following: regsvr32 /u netra.dll regsvr32 /u ntgw.dll It's ok, if these aren't found or 'error' out. If you want, just copy and paste the individual lines to the command prompt to save on the typing. =============== Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present: R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://my.netzero.net/s/search?r=minisearch R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5F15F26C-81EE-4FFA-8B9A-39913016CD37} - C:\WINNT\system32\netra.dll O2 - BHO: (no name) - {D287B913-740E-605C-9967-D4EEFBA2E464} - C:\WINNT\system32\ntgw.dll O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [addfy.exe] C:\WINNT\system32\addfy.exe O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sdkpn.exe] C:\WINNT\system32\sdkpn.exe O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [spc_w] "C:\Program Files\NZSearch\nzspc.exe" -w O16 - DPF: {9b935470-ad4a-11d5-b63e-00c04faedb18} (Oracle JInitiator 1.1.8.16) - O23 - Service: Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Helper ( 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I) - Unknown owner - C:\WINNT\system32\addvq32.exe Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked". =============== Locate and delete the following item(s), if present.
