SysProtector - BAD BAD

  1. OK, let me start by saying I don't know how I got this but it makes random ads pop-up the first time IE is opened. It used to be worse by telling me that I had a virus and I needed to get rid of it - and to click to scan.. Yeah right, im not that dumb. So I've gone to a couple of forums and run a couple of programs like Vundo and NOD32 deep scan in safe mode.. Can someone take a look at my HjT report and tell me if they see anything wrong?

    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 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).

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: wingsa32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wingsa32.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.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wingsa32.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and post a fresh HJT log as an attachment. See HERE for instructions on how to do this.

    Have HJT fix these inactive entries.

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {202a961f-23ae-42b1-9505-ffe3c818d717} - C:\Program Files\PCODEC\isaddon.dll (file missing)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {781CA40F-628C-4AFC-997E-45AFCDB681F0} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pmnno.dll (file missing)

    O3 - Toolbar: Protection Bar - {860c2f6b-ca82-4282-9187-beccbb66f0af} - C:\Program Files\PCODEC\iesplugin.dll (file missing)

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

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