    You still have the windir32.exe worm on your system.

    Do the following.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    windir32.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows DLL Services Configuration] windir32.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows DLL Services Configuration] windir32.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows DLL Services Configuration] windir32.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\windir32.exe

    Run a full system scan with your anti8virus programme and delete whatever it finds.

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    Run IE and click tools/internet options. Click delete cookies/ok, also click delete files, tick the box that says delete all offline content/ok. Click clear history/yes.

    howard_hopkinso Newcomer, in training Posts: 25,948   +19

    Do use any other browser besides IE?

    Anyway, it`s far more important that you follow the instructions and get rid of the worm you have on your system.


    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: I`ve just seen your Ewido log. You need to follow the instructions in post #30.

    aol in itself is a trojan and difficult to remove. I would switch to another ISP. AOL is known for its crooked practices from poor customer service, to preying on newbies, to refusing to cancell accounts, to puting trojan horses bundled in their software. It's well documented in news articles.

    Look, just follow the instructions I gave you.

    If you can`t or don`t want to do this, that`s fine.

    Your only alternative is to reformat and reinstall from scratch.

    I don`t particularly care. all I know is this is getting very tedious.

    The rest is up to you.

    Regards Howard :)

    Stupid problem

    I use both aol and internet explorer, but mainly aol. Now the problem is on internet explorer on sites like google, it seems to keep a little history of searches I have done. So for example if I go on google, and type a word begniing with the letter s i get all my searches from the past which start with the word s. Its the same for anysite. I just dont like this as its almost a privacy issue.

    I have tried to clear history and cookies in ie but to no effect, I really need help.

    I have merged your new thread into this one. Don`t open anymore threads for this subject.

    Follow the instructions I gave you in Post #30 of this thread.

    Unless you get rid of that worm you have on your system, you`re not going to get this sorted. In fact the presence of the worm may be part of your problem.

    Theres only two ways of sorting your problem.

    1: Follow the instructions HERE.

    2: Reformat your computer.

    The choice is yours.

    I have merged your new thread into this one.

    On the face of it your HJT log looks clean.

    However, just to be sure please rename HijackThis.exe to HijackThis1991.exe and post a fresh HJT log. This is because some malware can hide from HijackThis.exe.

    erm shud i just rename the desktop icon? im still having the msn connection problems howard
  23. howard_hopkinso

    howard_hopkinso Newcomer, in training Posts: 25,948   +19

    No, renaming the desktop icon won`t help.

    I suggest to delete your current HijackThis programme and read these instructions.

    You MSN problems may have nothing to do with malware.

    I`ll have a better idea, once I`ve seen your fresh renamed HJT log.

    Have HJT fix the following entry, if you didn`t set the proxy yourself, or don`t know what it is.

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = 59.13.211.147:8080

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{BF861CAB-E76C-4F64-81E3-87AA9FFFF425}: NameServer = 205.188.146.145<only fix this if it doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    Click the fix checked button, close HJT.

    Other than the above possibilities, your HJT log is clean.

    If you`re still having problems with your MSN, I suggest you carry on posting in the thread you created for that problem.
