Browser Hijack

By Chogey1
Oct 3, 2006
  1. I hate to drop this on ya'll as a first post. I picked up a whole load of garbage from "Pacific Poker" beware them.
    Constant pop ups and other wierd behavior. Spybot finds nothing, ad-aware crashes the system, Avg finds a virus "Klone" that keeps returning like a bad dream. The recommended cleaners on the preliminary instructions on this site crash before they load. Enwido (sic) finds several things but they return. Have run Spy-bot and Avg anti spyware several times both straight up and in safe mode. Ist problem I have ever had that I could not solve.
    Attached are Hijack and enwido logs.
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Please rename HijackThis.exe to HijackThis1991.exe and post a fresh HJT log. This is because some malware can hide from HijackThis.exe.

    Thanks for looking,
    Here is the new log. Had to dodge a dozen or so pop ups to get here.

    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    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.

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

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

    Run a complete system scan with your antivirus programme and delete whatever it finds. This includes anything in the virus vault.

    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).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0B1F3508-B8E0-4638-A332-1EEC0D6C815D} - (no file)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: vturr - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vturr.dll

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winxia32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winxia32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted.

    These are the filepaths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winxia32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\vturr.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\kqwhgdwk.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an Attchment. and let me know how your system is running.

    Success???

    Followed your instructions. Things have improved considerably. I did get one pop up with IE. It was from a flight booking site not porn or that thing warning me about my computer being in danger of a major meltdown.
    AVG found 2 instances of "trojan horse generic2".
    There was a slight difference in one of the files to fix with hijack.
    the file was actually
    02-BHO (no name) {426c819B-5a7b-4f42-84ae-3ffbe8a65506}-C:\windows\system32\vturr.dll
    I fixed it anyway.
    Firefox has behaved OK so far. I usually use Firefox unless I encounter a site that just will not cooperate.
    Thanks for all of your help,
    Could we leave this thread open for a while until I have a few hours to check stability?
    Appreciate it,
    Dave

    Your system still has one nasty infection left to get rid of.

    Download and run these three tools. Follow the instructions for using each tool.

    Tool1 Tool2 Tool3

    Post a fresh HJT log, only after doing the above.

    This thread won`t be closed. It`s your thread and will remain so. Once your virus problem is solved, you will be able to post in this thread if you ever have a virus/spyware problem again.

    here again

    Hi again,
    Your patience is admirable and much appreciated.
    I could not find the option to run vundo as a task.
    I ran through the instructions. It found nothing on the 1st scan.
    I added the file as per your instructions.
    Here is the latest Hijack log.
    It appears to still have the removed files.
    My system seems stable but I have not used the browsers except for these posts.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it desktop

    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.

    Here again

    I tried the Avenger program and other instructions.
    Avenger seemed unable to delete the file.
    I have attached the Avenger log as well.
    I still do not understand the instruction to run vundofix.exe as a task.
    I do not see an option for that.
    Thanks as always,

    The latest

    Good evening Howard,

    Here is the new log.
    Only the file vturr.dll was found in my search.
    It existed in C:\vundofix backups and in C:\windows\system32.
    I deleted both instances.
    Looks like it is a very persistent devil.

    The entries are still there, including the file missing entries I asked you to fix.

    Also, this entry is still present. O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [tktytepm] C:\chvcaqwn.bat

    Try this.

    Download Brute Force Uninstaller http://www.merijn.org/files/bfu.zip and unzip it to it’s own folder (c:\BFU).

    Right click on this link http://metallica.geekstogo.com/EGDACCESS.bfu and choose 'Save As' (or 'Save Target As) in order to download EGDACCESS Remover. Save it in the folder you made earlier (c:\BFU).

    Start the Brute Force Uninstaller by double clicking BFU.exe

    In the scriptline to execute copy and paste c:\bfu\EGDACCESS.bfu
    Press execute and let it do its job.

    Wait for the complete script execution box to popup and press OK.
    Press exit to terminate the BFU program.

    Once that's done, post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    I`ve just realised that the vundofix instructions I gave you didn`t work, because vundofix has been updated.

    So, let`s try this.

    Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.

    Rightclick in the main window and click add more files.

    Enter the filepath you wish to remove into the top line and click the add files button, followed by the close window button.

    This is the file to enter into vundofix.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\vturr.dll

    Click the remove vundo button. And let vundofix do it`s stuff.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know the results.

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s absolutely fantastic news, I`m really pleased for you.

    However, there is still one entry that needs to go.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it desktop

    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.

    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    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.

    when it reboots and post a fresh HJT log.

    Calling it a night

    Howard,
    Here is the log.
    The dreaded Chvcaqwm seems to be gone.
    Avenger would not find it.
    I removed it with HJC.
    I also removed Spybot I believe that the resident portion may have been preventing any changes to registry etc that the various programs were trying to make when run in normal windows mode. After removing Spybot HJC removed the chvcaqwn line.
    I will check the forum in the AM.
    Thanks again super job,
    Dave

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\xetnwsq.bat
    C:\xcqmunae.bat

    Reboot into normal mode, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    If we can just get rid of the above, your HJT log would be clean.

    Post a fresh HJT log.


    Regards Howard :)

    Thank You

    Howard,
    Please accept my sincere thanks. SUPER job.
    I could never have figured this out alone.
    You can be certain I will be far more selective of the sites I visit.
