I think my pc has been hijacked.

By no less than 4 separate infections even... :mad:


1. HiajckThis alone isn't going to be able to clean all of this up, so let's run a few other tools first. Please download and install:

ewido Security Suite (free trial version)
Microsoft AntiSpyware beta
Ad Aware SE Personal
SpyBot Search & Destroy


Run each utility consecutively, and reboot after each program has finished its scan/fixes (just for good measure). Before actually scanning/fixing with each, make sure to use the programs' online update features to make sure you have all of the most current updates installed.


2. Once you've cleaned up as much as possible with the above utilities, run HijackThis again and post a fresh log.

Also, as soon as possible, go to Windows Update and get the Critical Updates for your system.

Hi Postie,

I just noticed nobody has responded to you yet, so thought I would - I'm still pretty new here, but saw a similar post to yours and this was the first step the pro listed in the thread:

Go to www.trendmicro.com, and then:

1. Click "Free Online Scan".
2. Click "Scan now, it's free".

It'll take a few minutes to download (especially with a dialup connection), so be patient. When it's down:

1. Select all available drives.
2. Check(tick) "Auto Clean".
3. Click "Scan".

When it completes, post back the full filename of any files that cannot be cleaned or deleted.

Also, I'm pretty new at reading HijackThis logs, but will give it a shot since I'm wanting to learn and be helpful - mostly I'm just seeing some adware/spyware type stuff, possibly a virus, so scanning with the free online scan is first step, then some anti-spyware. You aslo seem to have a lot of toolbars - I know there are "bad" ones out there - not sure how to tell which are which, but Spybot will remove the bad search bars.

Take care - hopefully someone else more knowledgeable will reply.

Hi Postie, welcome to DaniWeb :D

In addition to what kAtHicKa has suggested, go to Windows Update and get the Critical Updates for your system as soon as possible.

Also, for every User listed under C:\Documents and Settings, delete the entire contents of these folders (not the folders themselves):

Local Settings\Temp
Cookies
History
Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Delete the entire contents of your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

Delete the entire contents of your C:\Temp folder (if you have one).

Do a search for *.tmp and delete all entries found.

(Note: if any of these temporary files cannot be deleted while in ‘normal mode,’ try Safe Mode.

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Reboot, close any open browser windows, scan with HijackThis, and post a new log please.

Some of the original problems have gone but a few still remain.

At some stage I want to upgrade to XP - would it be better to wait until exsisting problems are sorted?

Anyway here is the current log.

Thanks for any help.

Postie,

We're never going to be able to keep track of you if keep starting new threads for your responses instead of posting them here.

I've tracked down your other responses to this troubleshoot and merged them into this thread, but from now on, please use the "Post Reply" button in this thread instead of clicking "New Thread".

Thanks. :)

I want to upgrade to XP - would it be better to wait until exsisting problems are sorted?

Absolutely. You should never do a major upgrade to a computer that's infected or otherwise problematic. You run the risk of having Very Bad Things happen if you do.

1. Open your Add/Remove Programs control panel and uninstall any programs related to My Way, My Search, My Bar, My Search Bar, etc.


2. C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE
C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE

The log entries above indicates that you had at least 2 instances of Internet Explorer running when you ran HijackThis. Before fixing problems with HijackThis, you must make sure to close/quit ALL instances of your web browsers.
HijackThis cannot fully perform its fixes while browsers are running.


3. After taking care of the above, run HJT again and have it fix:

- Open Windows Explorer and:
Select the View menu and then click Folder Options.
After the new window appears select the View tab.
Scroll down until you see the Show all files radio button and select it.

- Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot normally.


6. Run HJT again and post a fresh log.

Sorry about previous posts, I didn't realise.

Followed instructions except for deleting C:\GSIVO.EXE as I could not find this.

Here is new highjack log.

Thanks

Better, but not clean yet...

1. On the page below, Norton/Symantec have a link to their stand-alone IST removal program, as well as more information about the infection as a whole:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.istbar.html

Download and run the remover as per their instructions.


2. After that, run HJT again and have it fix the followng entries if they still exist:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.clicksearchclick.com/index.php?aff=9
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Service Host] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Services\{5B81E240-CBB8-11D9-9E8F-444553540000}\SVCHOST.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IST Service] \ISTsvc\istsvc.exe


3. Verify that the ISTscv folder and file have truly been deleted; if you find them, delete them manually.


4. Empty your Recycle Bin, reboot, run HJT one more time and post the log.

Good work- that's a clean log :)

Does the system seem to be working normally now? If not, give us the details.

If it is working now, here are a few things you can/should do to minimize your chances of future virus/malware infections:


1. Enable Windows Automatic Update function to keep your system as up-to-date as possible with the most current Microsoft security and bug fixes.

2. Stop using Internet Explorer as your web browser. Because IE is so closely tied into the Windows operating system itself and contains so many security flaws, switching to another browser such as Netscape, Firefox, or Opera will greatly reduce the avenues through which spyware/adware/hijackers/etc. can infect your computer.

3. Install preventative utilities such as SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard (links are in my sig below), especially if you absolutely have to continue using Internet Exploder. These utilities protect areas of your system known to be vulnerable to malicious attacks.

4. Tighten up some of Internet Explorer's existing, default settings to make it more secure. Some info on that can be found here: http://tomcoyote.org/ieoe.php

5. Obviously-install a good anti-virus program and enable its "auto-protect" and email-scanning features.

6. Install a stand-alone firewall program such as Zone Alarm or Kerio Personal Firewall, or purchase the "Internet Security" packages offered by Symantec and McAfee.

7. None of your utilities are of much good if you don't check for updates frequently; updates for anti-spyware/anti-virus programs can be released as often as ever two or three days.

Hi,

System is great now, thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Will I be ok to upgrade to xp now and then follow your instructions to try and prevent this happening again?

0

I'd personally recommend a fresh, clean install of XP as opposed to an upgrade over 98, but if an upgrade is your only option (and you're positive the system is trouble-free now), you should be able to go for it. Just make sure you back up any critical data before upgrading! If something goes wrong with the upgrade, you could be left not even being able to boot into 98 anymore.

Hi,

Thanks
