Hey guys,

I was running some antivirus scans from my Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD, www.ubcd4win.com) last night in an effort to find a solution for my inability to delete some folders on my D: drive (the problem persists, I have it posted under the Win XP forum) and I stumbled across some rather nasty infections. I had Microsoft.Windows.System and HitsLink, according to Spybot, and TR/Click.HD, 2 w95/Bumblebee.1738, and several TR/Dropper.gen infections according to Avira Antivir (Curiously, McAfee Stinger and Avast! came back clean. Also, NOD32 never saw any of these!). I managed to delete most of the infections there, then I replaced my NOD32 (which was a trial anyways, and it obviously missed these puppies!) with Antivir, ran another full scan, and re-removed some that weren't able to be removed from my UBCD.

I also downloaded AVG free and ran a fully updated scan. (I ensured that no active protection was installed, so AVG is an on-demand scanner I used for a second opinion to Antivir. It didn't come up with anything)

Anyways, long story short, my scans are comming back clean, but I'm still wary. So I was wondering if you guys would be willing to give me a second opinion on my HijackThis and ComboFix logs- I'm still very very new at reading them. I just learned about ComboFix yesterday, and started working on HijackThis logs today!

Here are the logs:

Any insight would be appreciated!

Thanks for your time,

Oh, and I forgot, this system is a HP Pavillion DV8000 laptop (2.66 GHz Intel Centrino Duo, 2GB DDR2 memory, 2x 80 GB HDD, NVidia GeForce GO 7600)

Hope this helps,

Don't run two antivirus programs at the same time! (I wish you could but it's a bad idea). They'll conflict with eachother (espeically the active protection), each will think parts of the other to be viruses, and just general bad things can happen. It can lead to system lockups and unbootable systems! Neither program will work correctly, either, so you will be *vulnerable to attacks* :p

tut tut :D.

‡‡Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will can not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this and try to follow it as closely as possible taking it step by step.

If you have any of the below apps installed, uninstall them and update with my suggestions


‡‡Chose either Avira or AVG as your AV, uninstall the other and Update the Antivirus program.

‡‡Please download Spybot Search and Destroy install it and update the program.

[hide]

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html

[/hide]

‡‡Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop. Ignore the AntiVirus warnings and download it anyway because you need to run it. Wait on installation and running.

[hide]

http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=4

[/hide]

‡‡Download CleanUp! and install it. Wait on installation and running.

[hide]

http://www.stevengould.org/downloads/cleanup/CleanUp452.exe

[/hide]

‡‡Please download following program CWSHREDDER. Wait on installation and running.

[hide]

http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/online-tools/cwshredder.exe

[/hide]

‡‡Download about:Buster and save it to your desktop. When it has finished downloading, unzip the folder to your desktop as well. You should now be left with an aboutbuster folder on your desktop.Wait on installation and running.

[hide]

http://www.malwarebytes.org/AboutBuster.zip

[/hide]

‡‡I would suggest though that you download CCleaner. It is a great little program that I use every time I close my browser to get rid of temporary files. I usually just run the cleaner part every time I'm done with the browser.During the install there will be check marks for checking for updates that part I do not use and also to install a tool bar for yahoo or something. Make sure those are unchecked unless you want another tool bar, It is a very safe program and it is free.(CCleaner Quick Setup: Go to > Options > Advanced > Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours" for cleaning malware. files!)

[/hide]

_____________________________________________________________

‡‡Now make sure no files are hidden. To do this:
For XP go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading:
* select Show hidden files and folders.
For Vista go to the Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization
Under the Folder Options, click Show Hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.
You may change the above options back after your log is clean.

‡‡Turn off system restore.

Steps to turn off System Restore for XP:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the System Restore tab.
3. Click to select the Turn off System Restore check box. Or, click to select the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box.
4. Click OK.
5. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm that you want to turn off System Restore:
You have chosen to turn off System Restore. If you continue, all existing restore points will be deleted, and you will not be able to track or undo changes to your computer.
After a few moments, the System Properties dialog box closes.
Steps to turn off System Restore for Vista:
1. Control Panel -> System Maintenance -> Back Up and Restore Center
2. On the right column, click on "create a restore point or change settings" (this requires administrator's password if set)
3. Uncheck all drives.
4. Click OK.
5. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm that you want to turn off System Restore:
You have chosen to turn off System Restore. If you continue, all existing restore points will be deleted, and you will not be able to track or undo changes to your computer.
After a few moments, the System Properties dialog box closes.

‡‡Do all steps below in safe mode except for at the end when you generate a new HiJackThis log.

‡‡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 (Repeatedly).

3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear

4) Use the up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.

‡‡Please run HijackThis and click "Scan". Place checks next to the following entries if still present in the code and close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked".

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {0A94B116-4504-4e26-AB05-E61E474AA38B} - C:\Program Files\AskPBar\SrchAstt\1.bin\A9SRCHAS.DLL
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {F4D76F01-7896-458a-890F-E1F05C46069F} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {F4D76F09-7896-458a-890F-E1F05C46069F} - (no file)

‡‡Run your Antivirus and do a full scan remember this is all in safe mode.

‡‡Run Spybot Search and Destroy and do a full scan remember this is all in safe mode.

‡‡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!"

*Only Check the following for now:

-Empty Recycle Bins

-Delete Cookies

-Delete Prefetch Files

-Clean up All Users

*Uncheck the following:

-Delete Newsgroup cache

-Delete Newsgroup Subscriptions

*Press the Temporary Files Tab and check.

-Scan drives for files matching

Click OK

Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.

Note: CleanUp! deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups. If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup or MOVE THEM out of the Temp folder before running CleanUp!

I don't see an about:blank infection either.

‡‡Turn off system restore.

imo it is better to have a bad restore point than none at all if things go wrong.


I see two pretty clean logs there with only a couple of orphaned entries that need fixing.

Thanks for all your help, guys.

As for the "Tutting" from crunchie, I got AVG as an *on demand* scanner, temporarily. Geez, I said it *might* work. :p (The article I referenced in that post said that was a fine practice. Its active protection you need to worry about.)

So far, I like Avira better. Seems to be more thorough, but it takes over 10 hours to run a full scan? (Maybe that was just because I was also running Spy Sweeper and A-squared free at the same time...)

Locksmith, thanks for the long list of fixes- I'll keep this thread bookmarked for future reference!

And thank you again, crunchie, for easing my workload and giving me the second opinion I wanted to hear. :)

So, to take care of those orphaned entries, would I use CCleaner to clean the registry, or is there something further I should do?

And I think I'll run another battery of scans (minus AVG, of course :p ) in safe mode overnight tonight.

Thanks again, guys!

But they are both running in your processes and from the 'Run' keys :).

Use hijackthis.

Alright. Which ones do you recognize as orphaned?

Hiya, Comodore....
AVs... I don't know too much about how AV services work, but I do know that if you have an active AV service installed and started then it works in the background full time. In fulfilling that role they scan any process which starts and any files that are opened. Then of course they also have an on-demand function - with that you can scan all or sections of your puter so even if files, executables etc are not being used they can be checked.
But the point of this is that if a further active AV service's processes are running [in the background], its files are being used etc, so they will be checked by the first service, and vice versa. So even if you are not using one active AV to run a demand scan it is still active. And conflicting. Active/resident AVs integrate themselves very deeply into your OS whereas an online scanner does not; you can use the latter as on-demand scanners.
Hope this helps...
