Hello

I did an antivirus scan the other day, and here are my results:

http://us.mcafee.com/root/runapplication.asp?appid=73

McAfee Antivirus scan August 7-06

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DHTMLAccess.dll Downloader-DA.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\EGHTMLDialer.dll Downloader-DA.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DialerOffline.dll Adware-StripPlayer
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\GirlControlCom.dll Adware-StripPlayer
C:\WINDOWS\SCANREGW.EXE Downloader-SS
C:\WINDOWS\...\backup-20060729-140418-210.dll Adware-HungryHands
C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\dialer.exe Dialer-gen
C:\Program Files\...\SearchUpgrader.exe Adware-KeenValue
C:\Program Files\...\DemoDerby\GameSpy.url Adware-Url.gen
C:\Program Files\180search Assistant\180sa.exe Adware-180SA
C:\Program Files\MaxALERT\SaveNowInst.exe Adware-SaveNow
C:\Palm\tess\Install\casino.exe CasOnline

Now since I did it online for free, it doesn't remove these issues. Are all of them a danger to the computer? Can someone tell me how to manually remove these if necessary?

Its a win 98 pc.


Thank you
Chris

Hi, we will use Pocket Killbox to kill them.

Please download Pocket Killbox by O^E.

  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click Killbox.exe to run it.
  • Select:
    • Delete on Reboot
    • then Click on the All Files button.
  • Please copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy):

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DHTMLAccess.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\EGHTMLDialer.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DialerOffline.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\GirlControlCom.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SCANREGW.EXE
    C:\WINDOWS\...\backup-20060729-140418-210.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\dialer.exe
    C:\Program Files\...\SearchUpgrader.exe
    C:\Program Files\...\DemoDerby\GameSpy.url
    C:\Program Files\180search Assistant\180sa.exe
    C:\Program Files\MaxALERT\SaveNowInst.exe
    C:\Palm\tess\Install\casino.exe


  • Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose Paste from Clipboard.
  • Click the red-and-white Delete File button. Click Yes at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click OK at any PendingFileRenameOperations prompt (and please let me know if you receive this message!).

If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

___________________________________________________

Download HijackThis (current verison is v1.99.1)

or here (Alternate 1, a self-extracting zip file)
or here (Alternate 2, an *.exe file)

Make a new folder to put your HijackThis.exe into.

(Anywhere on your hard drive is fine other than your Desktop or the Temp folder. Suitable examples are:

  • C:HijackThis
  • C:Programshijackthis
  • C:WindowsMy DocumentsHJT

but feel free to use any name.)

Extract and save the HijackThis download to the new folder you made. Then navigate to it and run HijackThis from there. (This is to ensure it makes the necessary backups for recovery if fixes are made) Then, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and click Scan.

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button. Press that and copy & paste its contents in your reply. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't try to fix anything yourself.

Thanks.

We will then see if you are still infected.

Just please post a new HJT log.

Along with a description of how the computer is doing.

The computer seems to be acting fine. Just slow, but expected due to age and slower processor (its my inlaws computer). Here is the log:
