In recent days, I'm finding my computer hanging more frequently than normal; becoming inundated with pop-ups; and while surfing the web, new browser windows suddenly open without prompting. I looked in Add/Remove Software and discovered Shopping Wizard and Search Assistant in the list. I ran HijackThis - below is the log.

As much as I would like to learn more about the virus removal process, I don't trust my computer programming abilities enough to do it alone. Thus, I'm appealing to anyone out there who can help me - please help!

Hi and welcome to Daniweb :)..

===============

Let's open a command prompt by going to the start menu and then select 'Run'.

In the box that pops up type in 'cmd'. The command prompt will open.

OR

You can go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. Unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following:

regsvr32 /u iexm.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 typing them in.

===============

Next, open another command prompt and:

1. Enter "services.msc" (without the quotes).

-

Now, locate and 'stop' the following services, if present:

Network Security Service ( 11Fßä#·ºÄÖ`I) owner ... (C:\WINDOWS\mfcjj.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. Once stopped, set this service to disabled.

===============

Run HiJackThis then:

1. Click "Open the Misc Tools Section"
2. Click "Open Process manager"

-

Next, while holding down the CTRL key, locate (if present) and click on (highlight) each of the following:

C:\WINDOWS\mfcjj.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mfczi.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.

===============

Still in HiJackThis, click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

O23 - Service: Security Agent (scagent) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\scagent.exe" start (file missing)


Now, with all windows closed (including Internet Explorer) except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure your able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

files...

C:\WINDOWS\mfcjj.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mfczi.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\iexm.dll
C:\WINDOWS\mfcvj32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\winhs.exe
C:\WINDOWS\sdkjg.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\nethh32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\sdkxi32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\nthg.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netld32.exe

-

Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in "Safe Mode".

-

Reboot.

===============

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Let me know how everything goes.

Hi,

Thanks for helping me out! Here's what has happened so far.

When I applied "Kill process" to
C:\WINDOWS\mfcjj.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mfczi.exe

I got a message saying "could not be killed. It may have already closed, or it may be protected by Windows. This process might be a service, which you can stop from the Service applet in Admin Tools."

It seemed to have gotten rid of the other file, though... :(

What next?

Sorry, once I re-read what I wrote, I found that my message above isn't very clear.

I applied "Kill process," and then got the message I described. I hit "Refresh" and it worked only on

C:\WINDOWS\system32\mfczi.exe

but mfcjj.exe was still there. I then highlighted it again and hit "Kill process" and got the message again.

Hope that's clearer.
