Ok. Brief summary of my problem. It first started when I noticed a PartyPoker icon on my desktop, and yazifind pop ups started to occur. I've been hijacked before and cleaned up fairly well (or did I?) so I knew some of the steps to take to get rid of this problem. Well, everything was fine for about a month or so, when my computer re-started up to a black screen. (fatal exception while working with the program TDT) After the WinXp Logo just black screen with mouse. No curser for command prompt. Safe mode was same. Tried all options, boot to last known good config....., etc. and finally just reinstalled WinXP. Got my screen back! And I think some adware too! At least I'm pretty sure, cause PartyPoker came back and Yazifind popped up again. I'm not sure what to delete, and Now it is a major pain just trying to do windows updates and the like, as internet is slow. All seems fine for a little bit (20 mins. or so) then it will just slow down. I've managed to download a few updates and now i can't tell what is legit and what is Spy-Ad ware. And quite a few of my files look suspicious to me. But with slow internet, research is difficult! Can someone please have a look at my HiJackThis log and tell me if you see anything that is known to cause trouble? A Few more notes. Have several svchost.exe running. at least four now at all times. even before internet connection. Used to only have two. Now at least four. I have two instances of lsass.exe running in task manager. Also, task manager fails to "show up" sometimes. When I click on it it appears in Sys tray but no window opens. Also get runtime error for a.exe which under properties labled as tinymfc.exe. And the error "a.exe is not a valid Win32 application" or something like that. slinstaller.exe was under my local computer(C:) along with other icon applications that i don't recognize. Like a.exe and b.exe, dd.exe and dse.exe, and updatees.exe (at least I assume they are .exe because they are applications.) get errors that windows can't find slinstaller.exe. I am quite leary of deleting anything because I have gotten myself into "trouble" by deleting before. I thought i knew a little bit more than i actually do. Probably still seems to be the case! Anyway. I said BRIEF! Sorry! Any advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED! & THANKS SO MUCH for all the help you provide to everyone!!!! Here is my HiJackThis Log:

OK. I hope normal means with the "list normal/empty sections" boxes unticked. Here's a "normal" log file from yesterday. And I noticed that after I killed some processes on my task manager today, (msfirewalls.exe, wuitgurd.exe, & mzhxlixm.exe) everything seems to be running faster and smoother.(duh!) I did forget to mention that I connect through MSN and they really suck at times. Was unsure if problems were due to their servers or my Spy/Adware. Or both. I assume it's gotta be the latter (at least somewhat) because of PartyPoker, Yazifind, etc....
Thank you for your quick response!

When you first open hijackthis, hit the 'Do a system scan and save a log file' button. Post the log it creates.
If you are unsure what it looks like, check one of the other threads in this forum :).

You have a bit going on there.

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

Let's look for, and delete, any program segments(prefetches) that might be present, and are associated with the 'problems' we're trying to remove from this system. To do this, let's:

1) Click "Start | Search", then search for each of these program's base name(s), in all files and folders:

mzhxlixm.exe*
wuitgurd.exe*
msfirewalls.exe*

2) Then if any are found in the 'prefetch' folder, delete them.

Look closely, since the 'base' name will have a bunch of random numbers and letters attached to it.

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

Next, Open a command prompt by:

1. Clicking "Start", then "Run...".
2. Enter "cmd" (without the quotes).
3. Enter "services.msc" (without the quotes).

-

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

Microsoft Windows Update XP64 ... (mzhxlixm.exe)
CPU Temp Control ... (wuitgurd.exe)
USB Updates ... (msfirewalls.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\System32\mzhxlixm.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuitgurd.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msfirewalls.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:


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows Update XP64] mzhxlixm.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CPU Temp Control] wuitgurd.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [USB Updates] msfirewalls.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows Update XP64] mzhxlixm.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [CPU Temp Control] wuitgurd.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [USB Updates] msfirewalls.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows Update XP64] mzhxlixm.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [CPU Temp Control] wuitgurd.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [USB Updates] msfirewalls.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows Update XP64] mzhxlixm.exe

O23 - Service: AOL Instant Messanger (AIM) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\aim.exe
O23 - Service: Windows lsass Service (lsass) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\lsass.exe


Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

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

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

files...

C:\WINDOWS\System32\mzhxlixm.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuitgurd.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msfirewalls.exe
C:\WINDOWS\aim.exe
C:\WINDOWS\lsass.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. Please let me know how your pc is now.

Crunchie, YOU ARE crunchilicious! :o) Thank you so much! Everything looks good!But, I think it is obvious that I deleted aim.exe & lsass.exe before stopping them, seeing as they show up as a missing file on HijackThis, how do i take care of this? Thanks again, Crunchie!

Congratulations! Your log looks clean - good work!

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

Now that your PC is clean you need to follow these easy steps to keeping it this way:

Secure your Internet Explorer by going here and following the instructions there.

Better yet, use an alternative browser! Download FireFox and give it a run. It is far more secure than Internet Explorer. Or, you can get Opera which in my opinion, is better still.

Use a firewall to help prevent your PC's control being usurped by undesireables. There is a link to a good, free firewall in my signature.

Install and keep updated, Ad-Aware SE, and Spybot S&D.
Run them both on a regular basis, following the manufacturer's recommendations.

Install an anti-virus. There are some good, free AV's available today. Make sure that it is updated regularly and have it scan your system often.

Check for Windows Updates. Microsoft regularly post updates for your systems safe running. Make sure to take advantage of this. Reboot when installed and return to make sure there are no others.


Clear your Temp folders.
Clear out your Temporary internet files and other temp files.
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel >Internet Options.

Under the General tab click the Delete temporary internet files,
delete all Offline content as well. Clear out Cookies.

Also, go to Start > Find/search > Files or folders > in the named box, type: *.tmp and choose Edit > select all -> File > delete.

Empty/delete the entire contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. (Contents but not the folder itself.)

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\

In order to view these files you may have to select 'show hidden files/folders.' Instructions on how to here.

Empty the Recycle Bin.

For XP users.
After something like this it is a good idea to Flush the Restore Points and start fresh.
To flush the XP system Restore Points.

Go to Start>Run and type msconfig. Press enter.

When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings link on the left.

Check the box labelled 'Turn off System restore'.

Reboot. Go back in and Turn System Restore Back on. A new Restore Point will be created.

Note that all previous restore points will be lost.

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

If you have any more problems, post back.

-

Happy surfing,

crunchie.

Hi there! I'm back again! All looked so good. But then my husband went online on his profile and the wuitgurd.exe came back. All the steps I took to ditch this thing and now I'm stumped! I did all the work in safe mode. So I don't know what to do now. Also the first time I followed your advice, I was able to delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_AOL Instant Messanger (AIM)" from the registry now it says there is an error while trying to delete it (It came back). Even in safe mode. How does that little nasty keep reinstalling itself on my husband's Windows profile? Ok basically this is it. I thought I got rid of everything. I'd successfully been online and rebooted several times for about 2 days and then my husband went and Logged onto his windows user name and went online with IE and got Ownage popup. I looked at his task manager and sure enough WUITGURD.EXE was running. I killed it and just let him finish his online reading and when he was done I rebooted into safe mode and tried to get rid of the wuitgurd (again). All was good but can't delete AIM messanger from registry, now. And that is the only thing i can think of that is bringing this back again. After he got it and I logged onto my name i had it happen again. So Obviously I forgot to empty the recycle bin in safe mode or clear temp files or something! It's driving me nuts! As I'm sure it does to everyone who is posts for help! Any ideas? I guess I should post a HJT log but the problem isn't "there" right now. I don't understand why. Well, I deleted it for now. But maybe I should try on my husbands name. Thanks so much for all the advice! ~Heidi~

Maybe I'll just start a new thread. The problem is here now, cause my husband was on his profile today. Now I started up and there's 108SearchAssistant and all kinds of stuff. Here's a HJT log and I'll wait a while before I start a new thread.....I guess. Is that the appropriate thing to do? Or is it better to start a new thread?

Please repeat this on every user account.

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

Now, 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 ProSiteFinder.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.

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

Let's look for, and delete, any program segments(prefetches) that might be present, and are associated with the 'problems' we're trying to remove from this system. To do this, let's:

1) Click "Start | Search", then search for each of these program's base name(s), in all files and folders:

wuitgurd.exe*

2) Then if any are found in the 'prefetch' folder, delete them.

Look closely, since the 'base' name will have a bunch of random numbers and letters attached to it.

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

Next, Open a command prompt again:

1. Clicking "Start", then "Run...".
2. Enter "cmd" (without the quotes).
3. Enter "services.msc" (without the quotes).

-

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

CPU Temp Control ... (wuitgurd.exe)
Local Security Authority Server (LSA Server) owner ... (C:\WINDOWS\System32\lsasrv.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\System32\lsasrv.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuitgurd.exe
C:\Program Files\Media Gateway\MediaGateway.exe
C:\program files\180searchassistant\salm.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\pop8ps1j.exe
C:\Program Files\ProSiteFinder\prositefinder.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:


O2 - BHO: (no name) - {00000000-0000-4351-A88E-7FC42172433A} - C:\Program Files\ProSiteFinder\ProSiteFinder.dll

O23 - Service: Local Security Authority Server (LSA Server) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\System32\lsasrv.exe


Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

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

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

folders...

C:\Program Files\Media Gateway
C:\program files\180searchassistant
C:\Program Files\ProSiteFinder

files...

C:\WINDOWS\System32\lsasrv.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuitgurd.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\pop8ps1j.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.

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

To help protect your system from hostile ActiveX content, or special 'downloadable' files:

Download, install and keep updated, SpywareBlaster. If you've installed it for the first time:

1) Check for any available updates; if present, they'll be automatically downloaded and installed.
2) Next, "Enable all protection".
3) Exit the program.

-

Note: Remember to regularly check for updates.

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

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.

-

Run hijackthis and hit the Open the Misc Tools Section and then the Open Uninstall Manager.

Then hit the Save List button. Save to the desktop for easy access. Open the log file and copy the entire list and paste it here please.

===========

Copy the bold text below and paste it into notepad. Save it to your desktop as find.bat and make sure type is set to All Files.


cd\
cd Program Files
DIR /AD /B /P > ProgramFiles.txt
start ProgramFiles.txt
cls
exit


Double click find.bat and let it run for a minute. It will open up a report in notepad. Please copy that text and post it here in your next reply.
