Hi I have been infected with a heck lot of spyware my background has been changed to a message saying SYSTEM STOPPED ive a program called spysherrif thats got onto the computer and another called access members area.exe is on the desktop.

I have been trying to fix this myself and have downloaded ewido which is stopping files own.exe clean.exe and others from running I have sophos antivirus, microsoft anti spyware program, CWS Shredder, ADaware, hoster.exe, aboutbuster.exe, killbox.exe which i saw as part of a fix on a forum.

Its been two days now that ive been trying to fix this and everytime it looks like its gone it comes back.

Thanks for any help

xinbic,

Hi and welcome to the Daniweb forums :).

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

Download, then unzip to "C:\HJT", the newest version of HiJackThis; version 1.99.1. Then repost your log, either now, or after following the steps in the solution (if provided in this post). This version has features that might be more helpful in 'cleaning' up your system.

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

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.

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

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


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows installer] C:\winstall.exe

O15 - Trusted Zone: *.xxxtoolbar.com (HKLM)
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.ysbweb.com (HKLM)


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 <href=http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html>view system and hidden files/ folders:[/url]

files...

C:\winstall.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".

-

Disable all your antispyware tools so that we can see everything that is running.

Reboot.

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

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

Ok, let's try this:

1. Create a new "system restore" point.
2. Open Notepad.
3. Copy and paste the text below into Notepad.

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

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges]

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

4. Click "File | Save as...".
5. Click the drop down menu for "Save in:" and select "Desktop"
6. Click the drop down menu for "Save as type", then select "All files"
7. Enter "FixReg.reg" as the file name, and press enter.
8. Close Notepad.
9. Locate "FixReg" on your desktop and double-click it. When asked to merge this file with the registry, select yes.

Back on the Desktop, double-click on the fixme.reg file you just saved and click on Yes when asked to merge the information.

Note that since the Domains are deleted SpywareBlaster protection must be re-enabled. Spybot's Immunize feature must be used again, also have to re-install IE-SpyAd if installed.

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

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

Hi jol102001,

First of all- welcome to TechTalk!

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your question there. When you do, please try to give us as much specific info as possible regarding the problem (exact error messages, system specs, etc.).

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:

http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/faq.php?faq=daniweb_faq#faq_rules
