Hello,

Today, I had to disconnect my modem.When I reconnected it, all hell broke loose. Norton alerted me to a trojan virus that it wasn't able to delete (C:\windows\system32\howiper.exe). I ran all my spyware programs (ad-aware, spybot S&D, norton anti). It was at this point when I knew I had a problem. Each program was abbruptly ended by windows, saying it ran into some kind of problem.

I then noticed that a program (unspypc) was loaded onto my system and a couple toolbars were added to IE. I uninstalled the unspypc program, but can't seem to figure out how to remove the toobars.

I feel trapped. I tried to backup my important files onto DVD, but that program was ended by windows too! Please help!!!!

You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download FixWareout from one of these sites:
http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe
http://swandog46.geekstogo.com/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, then make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish. The fix will begin; follow the prompts. You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

When your system reboots, follow the prompts. Afterwards, HijackThis will launch. Please click Scan, and check the following items:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [cnftips] TForm1.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RtlFindVal] Preliminary.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [new32] backd.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [pizda] hyandex.exe

Click Fix Checked. Close HijackThis, and click OK to proceed.

At the end of the fix, you may need to restart your computer again.

Finally, please post the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt, along with a new HijackThis log.

Can you please do the following.

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

Before we begin, let's move HiJackThis to it's own folder; like c:\HJT. When we're done 'cleaning' off your system, we're going to 'flush' the temporary folders which, with HiJackThis in it's current location, we'll lose both the program and the backups it creates. These backups are important in case we need to restore any 'fixed' entry(s) later.

Also move the "Backups" folder, for HiJackThis, if present.

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

Scan with HiJackThis, then check(tick) the following, if present:


R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {E3F6D21B-9B80-D9E4-72B1-864E577005E8} - zantu.dll (file missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dmzey.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\dmzey.exe

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{5C270D14-9748-485B-AF1D-9F21A930BF34}: NameServer = 85.255.116.113,85.255.112.173
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{F56F7091-91D1-4B60-A671-DA1DA96F358F}: NameServer = 85.255.116.113,85.255.112.173
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\..\{5C270D14-9748-485B-AF1D-9F21A930BF34}: NameServer = 85.255.116.113,85.255.112.173
O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\..\{5C270D14-9748-485B-AF1D-9F21A930BF34}: NameServer = 85.255.116.113,85.255.112.173


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\dmzey.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.

Hey Crunchie,

Here's what took place:

- I made sure HJT and its backup file were in its own directory (c:HJT)
- I ran HJT and deleted everything you stated, all of which existed on the HJT report.
- I tried to delete the file c:\windo.......dmzey.exe file,but it wouldn't let me.
- Re-booted in safemode and was able to delete the file (dmzey.exe)
- Re-booted back to normal mode

I haven't run any of my virus/spyware programs to make sure they run without being cancelled/terminated; however, I will try it now.

I'm also experiencing another problem, where it takes about 6 minutes to completely reboot to safemode and 9 minutes to reboot back to normal mode. It has never taken this long. This has been going on for some time now and is probably an unrelated issue. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can find the problem and fix it?

Lastly, when looking at my HJT log, I see stuff that seems suspicious to me. Is there anything that you see that might pose as a problem?

BTW - Where is the button that says "Donate to Crunchie"?

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Barry

Can you please do the following.

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

Scan with HiJackThis, then check(tick) the following, if present:


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dmzey.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\dmzey.exe


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

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

The following can safely be removed from your startup folder;

C:\Program Files\ACT\SideACT.exe
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intuit\QuickBooks\QBUpdate\qbupdate.exe
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
C:\Program Files\Logitech\Desktop Messenger\8876480\Program\LDMConf.exe

C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Toolbox\hpbpsttp.exe
C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\OrderReminder\OrderReminder\OrderReminder.exe
C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe

Go to your Start button then the Run and hit that then type in msconfig and hit ok. Go to the startup Tab and remove (uncheck) all the above from the startup list. This will prevent them from starting at startup.

==

Right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select properties. Hit the advanced Tab then go to Settings under the startup and recovery section. Change the settings you see there to what I have. Two attachments below will show you what they are.

==

Let me know how things are now.

Hi Crunchie,

Everything is looking good so far. I did all that you said to do. Here are a couple things I'd like to mention:

1. I re-booted in safemode and it still took forever...about the same as before.

2. After making the changes to the msconfig. I re-booted and my system gave me an alert saying:

"You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way Windows starts. The system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or selective mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts. Choose the normal start up mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system configuration utility"

What should I do to eliminate this message so it wont come up when I re-boot. If I do what the message says, it'll undo everything we did.

3. The virus that appears to have been eliminated had also changed my homepage to (www.microsoft.com/isap/redir.dll?prd=ie&prd=ie&pver=6&ar=msn.home) I changed it back to my homepage and everything seems fine. I just wanted you to see the URL, just in case there's something there that needs attention.

4. When I run spybot S&D, two alerts show up:
(windows security center disable notify)
(windows firewall center disable notify)
I didn't delete them because they look legit. Should I do anything with these?

5. When I ran Ad-aware it found these:
-unspypc
-win32.trojanclicker (3 objects)
-adaware.toolband (2 objects)
I removed all.

6. I've heard that running too many virus detection programs at the same time can be bad. I have Norton AntiVirus, Norton Internet Security and Microsoft AntiSpyware running. Is it okay to have all running at the same time?

Thanks again for your help. Let me know if you would like to see another HJT Log.

Hi Crunchie,

Everything is looking good so far. I did all that you said to do. Here are a couple things I'd like to mention:

1. I re-booted in safemode and it still took forever...about the same as before.

2. After making the changes to the msconfig. I re-booted and my system gave me an alert saying:

"You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way Windows starts. The system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or selective mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts. Choose the normal start up mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system configuration utility"

What should I do to eliminate this message so it wont come up when I re-boot. If I do what the message says, it'll undo everything we did.

Check the box that says 'Do not show this message again....' and then hit the OK button. All will be well :).

4. When I run spybot S&D, two alerts show up:
(windows security center disable notify)
(windows firewall center disable notify)
I didn't delete them because they look legit. Should I do anything with these?

Go to the Control Panel and then go into the security centre and check for your self if the settings for the firewall notification are correct. As you are using Norton, the box for 'I have a 3rd party firewall' or something like that, should be checked.

6. I've heard that running too many virus detection programs at the same time can be bad. I have Norton AntiVirus, Norton Internet Security and Microsoft AntiSpyware running. Is it okay to have all running at the same time?

Thats fine. What you do not want are two AV's or two real-time antimalware scanners running at the same time. They can conflict.

Thanks again for your help. Let me know if you would like to see another HJT Log.

A final one would be good :).

Thanks again Crunchie. Here is my HJT log. Please let me know if you see anything that needs to be removed or looks suspicous. If something looks suspicious, is there a resource I can use that will help me identify it and if it should be removed?

Not seeing anything suspicious now, but if you do see something in the future, you can upload it for a scan here; http://virusscan.jotti.org/

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, Ewido anti-malware, 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.
