Hello, AVG pops up now and then saying "Virus detected, GPSRESL.exe, trojan Dialer.18.c". I have also lost the "appearance tab" from the display properties on the desktop. Also IE links to explicit websites occasionally for no reason. I've run the AVG scan a few times but it doesn't detect anything. I tried the trendmicro housecall virus scan and that said I had TSPY_ALEMOD.A in wininet.dll. I've replaced wininet.dll now but havn't re-scanned yet. Here's the HJT log:

WareOut.exe is a worm. IT IS NOT A SPYWARE REMOVER!

Kill the process called WareOut.exe

Delete folder:

c:\Program Files\WareOut

also delete these files in windows directory:

wosys.dll
wosysdll.dll
wotmp.tmp
wotmp11.tmp

Now open up your registry editor and search and remove these registry entries:

Wareout

I suggest that you clean out your prefetch.

Also search for the file called abcxyz.exe and delete if you find it (although it is supposed to be gone already).

Search for files and registry keys like CoolSeach, and CoolWebSearch (just to make sure). Tell me if you find any.

Open up your Internet Explorer, goto Internet Options->programs->Manage Addons.

Make sure you dont have anything weird there (like CoolSearch).

Also I suggest getting CleanUp from:

http://cleanup.stevengould.org

and run it. It will clear temporary folders, and other places where the nasties like to keep copies of themselves.

Do you still get the problem?

I forgot one thing.

Could you also post the contents of your hosts file located in

c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

thanks.

Hello, I'm running Win98 SE so I don't think I have Prefetch. I couldn't find abcxyz.exe anywhere. Also couldn't find any registry entries for Coolsearch etc. I downloaded and ran cleanup. I also have run cwshredder, which didn't find anything. I ran adaware and I've just run Spybot-S&D which found 3 problems: CWS.WinSecurityCenter, AV-Gold and CallingHome.biz. I had Spybot fix them all. However the browser is still accessing poker/viagra/explicit sites. I'd say about one in every 15 links I click, the browser will go to one of these sites instead of the selected site. Also, the appearance tab from the desktop display properties window is still missing. I couldn't find the hosts file you asked for in c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

Hey,

Sorry for not getting back to you for a long time. I went on vacation for a week after the last post. I did not know that you were runing win98, and assumed some things...sorry.

The following entry:

HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer =
69.50.176.196,195.225.176.110

indicates a possible DNS hijack i believe. Update your defenitions and run the antivirus again. I will look more into your problem. I also suggest you get pctools spyware doctor (run an update before you do a thorough system scan) and tell me what it finds. It's just that its late and I just got back.

I will get back to you.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I decided to format the disk and re-install win98, that seems to have solved the problem! Thanks very much for your help.
