Solved:I have the aboutadog problem as well.

By lambertr
Oct 16, 2007
  1. I have followed the instructions and downloaded the myriad scanning programs and applied all fixes and deletions suggested. When I open IE, the trusted files still show the dog sites as trusted until I remove them. According to AVG 7.5, I don't have a virus, etc. It did show a threat on Oct 13th and removed it, but since then it shows everything is fine. I did have McAfee site advisor (free version) and it seemed to go bonkers last week...began turning on multiple copies of itself according to the task manager. I also had problems with Adobe Flash Player and uninstalled then reinstalled it. Everything is running fine now except for the dog sites continuing to show up in my Trusted Sites. I use my computer for work and home uses, including bill paying. How I discovered that I had this virus was when my husband was unable to download songs from Amazon.com's new music site, and I was going to add it to my trusted sites. That's when I found the dog sites listed.
    Thanks for any help!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system was infected with a trojan called Downloader.Agent.awf. It replaces legitimate files that are common on most computers with an infected file. Then, it moves the legitimate files to a bak or backup folder.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Right click on this link DelO15Domains.inf and choose Save As. Save it to your desktop. Right click on that file and choose Install. It will run immediately (you won't be able to see anything happen). You may delete it afterwards. NOTE: This script will delete any sites you may have added to the Trusted Sites. So if you want them back, you have to add them back to the Trusted Sites again.

    Please download FindAWF to your Desktop.
    Double-click FindAWF.exe to start the tool.
    Select "option #1 - Scan for bak folders" by typing 1 and press Enter
    When the tool has completed, a report will open up in notepad. Please post the results of the awf.txt as an attachment.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Double-click FindAWF.exe to start the tool. Then, do the following
    Select "option #2 - Restore files from bak folders" by typing 2 and press Enter .
    A text file will open up. Please copy/paste the following text from the quote box (all except the word QUOTE) into the text file.

    Close the .txt file and click Yes to save the changes.
    When the tool has completed, a report will open up in notepad. Please post the results of the awf.txt in your next reply as an attachment.

    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.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    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).

    PowerReg Scheduler V3.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).

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {0BF43445-2F28-4351-9252-17FE6E806AA0} - (no file)

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Qoobox
    C:\vundofix backups
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\drvipmid32.dll

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post fresh HJT and Combofix logs.

    Let me know if you`re having any problems.

    That looks good.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.


    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.
