Download the (free) HijackThis utility. Once downloaded, follow these instructions to install and run the program:


Create a folder for HJT outside of any Temp/Temporary folders and move the HijackThis.exe file to that folder now. A folder such such as C:\HijackThis or C:\Spyware Tools\HijackThis will do.

Run HijackThis, but do not have HJT fix anything yet; only have it scan your system! Once the scan is complete, the "Scan" button will turn into an option to "Save log...".
Save the log in the folder you created for HijackThis; the saved file will be named "hijackthis.log". Open the log file with Windows Notepad, and cut-n-paste the entire contents of the Notepad file here.

The log contents will tell us a lot about what "nasties" have crept into your system, and once we analyse the log we can tell you what to do from there.

thanks

You're welcome :)

1. Your HJT log shows signs of at least three different infections, but the following info in your log's header also shows that you are running a "virgin" version of Windows XP (no Service Packs, Security/Bug Fixes, etc. appear have been installed):

Platform: Windows XP (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 (6.00.2600.0000)

Running such an outdated, unpatched version of Windows, your system will almost certainly get reinfected in no time.
Once we get Internet Explorer functioning again (you can only download the updates through IE), you will need to use the Windows Update feature to bring your system up to a fully-patched version of Service Pack 1 (note that upgrading to Service Pack 2 on an infected system is not recommended!). Once you've done that, the info in your log's header should read as follows:

Platform: Windows XP SP1 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)


You will need to close/quit all web browser programs and disconnect from the Internet for much of the following, so you should print out these instructions or save them into a text file with Notepad.

> Download and install the following utilities:

CCleaner - www.ccleaner.com
Webroot Spy Sweeper (14 day free trial) - http://www.webroot.com/shoppingcart...4011&vcode=DT02
Microsoft Anti-Spyware beta - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...&displaylang=en
ewido Anti-malware (14 day free trial) - http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

- Open Spy Sweeper, click on "Options", and then click on "Update Definitions" under the Program Options tab. Do not run a scan yet; just close the program once the update completes.

- Open ewido. In the main screen, click "Update" and click "Start Update". After the update process completes, exit from Ewido.

- Open MS Antispyware beta. Make sure the "AntiSpyware Autoupdater" feature is enabled, and that it has downloaded the most current antispyware updates. Close the program after you've verified this.

- Open your anti-virus program and make sure that it has the most current virus definitions installed. Again- don't scan yet, just close the program once it's updated.

> Download the free WinsockXPFix utility and save it in a folder of its own. Don't do anything with the program yet; we'll probably need to run it after removing the "New.Net" hijacker.


> Run HijackThis, put a check in the box to the left of the following entry, and then click the "Fix checked" button:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = 127.0.0.1

> Reboot into Safe Mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up) and:

- Open Windows Explorer, and in the Folder Options->View settings under the Tools menu; check "Show hidden files and folders", and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extentions for known file types". Close Explorer after that.

- Open CCleaner.
- Go to Options-> Advanced: Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
- Go to Options>CustomFolders>Add Folder>Navigate to these folders (click on bold file once and hit OK) :
* C:\Windows\Temp
* C:\Windows\Prefetch
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ (This will delete all your cached internet content including cookies.)
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp
* C:\Documents and Settings\<any other user's Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other user's Profile>\Local Settings\Temp
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Cookies
* C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Cookies
Hit OK

- In left pane, scroll down to "Advanced, Custom Folders", put a check in Custom Folders

- Click on Run Cleaner

It may take a while for the program to perform its cleaning, so be patient. Close the program when it has finished.


- Run your anti-virus, MS Antispyware, and ewido; have the programs fix all malicious items they find.

When ewido finds the first malicious object on your system, it will ask you if it should clean it. When it asks this, put a checkmark in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections", then choose clean and click OK.
Save the log file that ewido will create after it finishes scanning; you'll be including that log in your next post here.

- Run Spy Sweeper.
* Under the Sweep Options tab, select ALL options under 'What to Sweep'.
* Click the "Sweep" icon and then "Start" to begin scanning.
*When the scan completes, click Next to automatically quarantine all detected items.
*Click the Results icon, select Session Log, and then click Save to File. Save the scan results to your desktop and close Spy Sweeper.

- Open Windows explorer again and look for the following files. Delete them if they still exist:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wooqio.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\l68mlgl116q.dll

- Delete the following folder entirely:

C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3


> Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot normally.


> Run HijackThis again, and post the new log. Also post the logs that ewido and Spy Sweeper generated.
