I've been recently having troubles opening a few files. BearShare, Morpheus and Limewire to be exact. I regularly used Bearshare, then one day it kept closing on me. So I downloaded Limewire. Same deal. Now with Morpheus, same deal. Here's my Hijackthis log. Any and all help is appreciated.

Okay, not only am I having problem with this, but now I can't perform a system restore, I can barely operate Windows. My Windows Movie Maker won't open. I NEED HELP! Please, don't let this go unanswered. Help me.

0

This link repeatedly keeps popping up when I browse sites. I fear that it is indeed spyware. I don't understand why I am being ignored. I seriously need the help right now. Someone, ANYONE, please respond!

0

Can you please do the following.


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

Go to Add/Remove programs and remove(uninstall) the following, if present:

NavHelper
Red Swoosh
WildTangent

The above could appear anywhere within the entry. Be careful not to remove any personal or system software.

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

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:

SystemTools ... (C:\WINDOWS\System32\testtestt.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\testtestt.exe
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\RSEDNClient.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\taskdir.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.

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

Scan with HijackThis and then place a check next to all the following, if present:

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\RSSoft
C:\Program Files\MyGlobalSearch
C:\Program Files\WildTangent
C:\Program Files\NavExcel
C:\Program Files\MediaGateway
C:\WINDOWS\System32\_zskwrkni05`

files...

C:\WINDOWS\System32\testtestt.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\taskdir.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\fia.exe
C:\DOCUME~1\MATTHU~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\8292\explorer.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\spoolsvv.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Settings\artm_new.dll

-

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 by doing the following:

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear use arrow up to highlight

Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode hit enter.

-

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.

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

Please uninstall Ewido and download and install the latest version of ewido anti-spyware tool

  • Close all other Applications Select language click Ok
  • Click I Agree
  • Click next
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish
  • Wait and Ewido will open to the main screen automatically.
  • Wait again a few minutes and Ewido Should Auto update itself. If it doesn't click update at top of screen.
  • This is very important to get updates
  • When updating has finished. Close Ewido.

If you have an "always on" connection to the internet, physically disconnect that connection until you are finished with Safe Mode and have rebooted back into normal mode.

  • Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear use arrow up to highlight
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode hit enter.
  • For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site: HERE

    You MUST manage to get into Safe Mode for the fix to work.

Make sure to close all open windows/programs/folders. Have nothing else open while ewido performs its scan!

  • Open Ewido
  • Click on scanner top of Ewido sceen
  • Click on Settings
  • Under How to Act click on Recommended Action choose Quarantine
  • Under How to scan all boxes should be selected
  • Under Possibly unwanted software all boxes should be selected
  • On right side under Reports: click on Automatically generate report after every scan.
  • Under What to scan select scan every file

At the moment, my computer is running fine. I'm going to run a few of the programs that were giving me trouble and then post an update to let you know how things are going. Does my scan look good?

0

Still got a couple of hangers there.

Can you please do the following.

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

Scan with HijackThis and then place a check next to all the following, if present:


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ÿ_zskDJ_CMJYJTBEXWE] C:\WINDOWS\System32\_zskwrkni05`\EWXEBTJYJMC_JD.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [ÿ_zskDJ_CMJYJTBEXWE] C:\WINDOWS\System32\_zskwrkni05`\EWXEBTJYJMC_JD.exe

O20 - Winlogon Notify: artm_newreg - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Settings\artm_new.dll


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:\WINDOWS\System32\_zskwrkni05`

files...

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Settings\artm_new.dll

-

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 by doing the following:

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.

Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode hit enter.

-

Reboot.

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

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

I'm still having some issues with my Bearshare and Windows Movie Maker. They're automatically closing upon open. If I delete the BearShare part here in the HiJackThis log and then reinstall it, will that fix anything?

Also, how does the log look now?

0

Don't fix the bearshare with hijackthis, but rather uninstall and reinstall it.

==

Still got a persistent trojan there.

Scan with hijackthis and tick the boxes next to all the following entries, then close all browser and explorer windows and hit the "Fix checked" button.

O20 - Winlogon Notify: artm_newreg - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Settings\artm_new.dll

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

1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop.

  • Click on Avenger.zip to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop

2. Copy all the text (including the 'Files to delete') contained in the code box below to your clipboard by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl+C:

Files to delete:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Settings\artm_new.dll


Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

3. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

  • Under "Script file to execute" choose "Input Script Manually".
  • Now click on the Magnifying Glass icon which will open a new window titled "View/edit script"
  • Paste the text copied to clipboard into this window by pressing (Ctrl+V).
  • Click Done
  • Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

  • It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

5. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply along with a fresh HJT log by using Add/Reply

==

I have uploaded a screenshot of what the string of characters should look like in Avenger.

The avenger file is blank, so there's nothing for me to copy.

0

Did you get any error messages from Avenger? Did you definitely include the text Files to delete above the actual file path?

0

Yep. I followed the directions to a tee. Should I try and repeat it to see if anything happens?

0

No, try this instead;

Fix that 020 line again with hijackthis and then do the following;

Download the Pocket KillBox
Unzip the file to your desktop.
Run Pocket Killbox and paste the full file path of the below file in the box and click on Standard File Kill and End Explorer Shell While Killing File. Click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle after you enter the file.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\Settings\artm_new.dll

Reboot afterwards if the file is successfully deleted.

If the file is not deleted, do not reboot yet. Run Pocket Killbox again and paste the full file path in the box and click on Delete on Reboot. Next click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle. You will get a message saying "File with be deleted on next reboot, Process and Reboot now?" Click "Yes" to reboot.

Once rebooted, rescan with hijackthis and post the log please. I am off to bed now as I'm off to work in 7 hours :(. I will check this thread before I leave for work.

That got the sucker :).

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.

Happy surfing,

crunchie.
