I have had problems today with the ISTsvc & I think I have gotten rid of it by going to the Task Manager and ending the following:
mmups.exe which then let me end and remove istsvc.exe through Spybot;
however, I have searched in C:/Windows and have found these files that have been added today:
ei25.exe
sskb5.exe
newpop446.exe
mm15201518.Stub.exe
HLInstaller3.exe

I belive these are bad because they are all installed/modifyed at the same time today.
Can I or SHould I delete any of these to get rid of this crappy Malware & Spyware problem.
Thank you,
Ted

By the way; I am not on my pc because the spyware is so bad, I cannot even get to this forum without having problems. So doing a HJT log might be difficult.

You're fairly well infested, but I need to log for the night and can't dive into this right now. Let me try to contact one/some of other security experts and see if they can help you; we're all in different time zones, so one of them will hopefully be able to respond before I get back online tomorrow. Hang tight...

Thanks again- I will reply shortly

Thanks again- I will reply shortly

After following capercacks instructions, do a search for ie2bar and ie2 and if they are still on your computer, let us know where they are located (have 'Show hidden files' enabled).

I am leary of deleting some things- I have some folder : ~DlfnTmp1 & _is8D (this one has alot of .ini files in it)which are inside the Temp folder. I understand that I should not delete the folder itself, but can I delte Everything in the Temp folder?


Thanks again

0

All the contents of the temp folder should be safe to delete. The folder itself can be deleted as it will be recreated on reboot :).
There will be a better chance to delete it all if you are in safe mode.

By the way when I was searching for prutmct I also came across PRUTMCT.EXE-0A46DFE5.pf but I left it alone - However, I DID delete prutmct.exe

Am I still screwed? Wow this is some serious stuff-thanks for sticking this out with me!

Nevermind about the Ad-Aware stuff - I ran it twice and had nothing on it.
The TrojanHunter cleaned the necessary files and I ran the latest Fix tools from Symantec - Nothing to report ( I have also been runing Norton Full Virus Scans all day with the latest updates and nothing to report either). I am going to run another HJT log


I'll be right back.

By the way - I have only been able to run Firefox since I screwed my pc with loads of MAlware and such. Will I be putting my pc at risk again for going back to using IE? (sorry for the tons of questions)

I have been searching around on my pc and found HyperLinker3.exe I read that HyperLinker was bad - Do I need to get rid of this too?

0

As long you have Firefox, you should use it for most of your web browsing, only use IE for pages that won't work with Firefox.

Right-click on the following files, go to Properties, and give us what information you can on these files:
HyperLinker3.exe
c:\windows\system32\vwflof.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\prutmct.exe

0

I can't find vwflof.exe in that folder, but as I snooped around google for HyperLinker I searched my registry and found vwflof.exe in here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run


HyperLinker3.exe is in C:\WINDOWS\system32

Spybot and Ad-Aware have not found anything, but IE is totally useless still.
I am also running BHODemon, I ran CWShredder, and have SpywareBlaster.

Ahhha,
msconfig
STartup tab shows vwflof
and it's not listed in the task manager

does this help?

0

Do you have 'Show hidden files...' enabled?

Personally, I think all three of those should be removed; but, since I'm not sure, you should wait for confirmation from someone else before doing so.

IF you do decide to delete them, set a System Restore Point first. And, before you make any changes to your Registry, make a backup copy.

0

I'm thinking that looking for fishy exe files in C:\Windows and C:\Windows\system32 created Jan. 29, 2005 at 1:19 PM and newer might help?
I found this one too:

pi1.exe in C:\Windows

this one is realy wierd:
59kd53fg.exe.tcf in C\Windows\system32 dated 1\29\05 at 1:19PM

0

Can you provide info or a link on how to backup a registry?

Thank you

0

and yes, Show hidden files is checked - that's what puzzles me

0

What if I uncheck vwflof and prutmct in the System Configuration Utility in the STARTUP tab? What would happen? Or what would that do?

0

pi1.exe is bad and should be removed; check for these too as they are usually related:
iebhos.dll
e2g

This 59kd53fg.exe.tcf looks bad to me as well.

To get to the Registry Editor, go to Start, Run, and type in regedit; click OK and the Registry Editor will open.

Before you edit the registry, you should make a backup. At the top of the Registry window, click on the Registry menu, click Export Registry File. In the Export range panel, click All, then save your registry as Backup.

Make the changes you want, and then exit the Registry Editor.

Whatever you disable from STARTUP will not run automatically when Windows starts, but it/they will still be on your system.

All the file you guys have talked about can be deleted ,and you can delete the content of The Prefetch folder as well !

0

Thank you. I deleted all those including the one in the registry, and after a reboot, I had to register Windows XP again. I'm now looking into this smss.exe (session manager subsystem) file in task manager - I read that it can be misleading to what it really is. I know what it does, but can it appear to be a Trojan or virus?
