1. My daughter got this on her computer. She only uses the computer for games and music. I use it occassionally for papers for school.

however, she cannot log onto WoW because of this trojan. I need to get it cleaned off for her.

I read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and downloaded the hijackthis and have a copy of the log saved on my computer.

There are a lot of steps to this cleaning, but I will be greatful to get this computer cleaned up once and for all.

I'll let you know how the battle goes,

Hi, welcome to TechSpot! :wave:

Please post a new HJT log as an attachment into this thread. Be sure to move and rename HJT if you didn't already (details in the preliminary removal instructions). Also, please post AVG Antispyware and ComboFix logs as detailed in that thread. Also let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan, but don't fix anything yet.

Very important: Before deciding whether to clean or reformat your system, read this thread and decide what you want to do.

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.

Go into Add/Remove programs in your control panel and remove anything relating to the following:

Viewpoint
MyWebSearch
SpyHunter<--this is a rogue anti-spyware program

You should also uninstall UltraVNC if you didn't install it yourself or if you don't use it. It's best not to have remote control software installed unless you actually use it.

Now delete the following bold files and folders (if there):

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint<--delete the entire folder
C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch<--delete the entire folder
C:\Program Files\Enigma Software Group\SpyHunter<--delete the entire folder
sinstaller.exe<--search your system for this file and delete all instances found.
C:\Program Files\screensavers.com<--delete the entire folder (don't worry if it's not there)

Now have HJT fix these entries (if there):

R3 - URLSearchHook: ScriptInocUI Class - - (no file)

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\3.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL

O2 - BHO: MyWebSearch Search Assistant BHO - {00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\3.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL

O2 - BHO: mwsBar BHO - {07B18EA1-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\3.bin\MWSBAR.DLL

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [My Web Search Bar] rundll32 C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\3.bin\MWSBAR.DLL,S

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\3.bin\mwsoemon.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyHunter] C:\Program Files\Enigma Software Group\SpyHunter\SpyHunter.exe

O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://ak.exe.imgfarm.com/images/nocache/funwebproducts/ei/ZwinkyInitialSetup1.0.0.15.cab

O23 - Service: Viewpoint Manager Service - Viewpoint Corporation - C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Common\ViewpointService.exe

Fix all of the O17 entries as well, only if they don't belong to your ISP.

Now reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected files.

I see that you set AVG Anti-spyware to ignore certain items. You need to have it set all elements to "recommended action." HERE is a pictorial guide to AVG Anti-spyware if you need help with it.

Now post fresh HJT, ComboFix, and AVG Anti-spyware logs as attachments into this thread. Also let me know if AVG Antirootkit finds anything.

Regards

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your system has a wareout infection and has been hijacked. In addition to the instructions given by kitty500cat, please do the following.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/lonny/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.

Attach a fresh HJT log as well as the C:\fixwareout\report.txt.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

I did as kitty500cat asked and will attach the files requested.

I'm starting to see crosseyed from all the scans.

Oh by the way I didn't set anything to ignore that was the default setting ... I did, however, figure out how to change that setting to quarantene and delete.

Okay now for the wareout thingy ... Back with my results

Di

So I have done all the scans deleted all the files I could find and attached all the required information?

I am studying to be a programmer ... but wouldn't have liked to have to remove all that was taken from this computer by hand.

Thank you both for all your help!!

Hopefully she can keep this thing free of junk from now on ... I have enough tools to stop the end of days I think! or have I spoken too soon?:blush:

You both have been so great, thanks again

Di

Click on the fix checked button.

Close HJT and reboot your system.

Your AVG Antispyware log says all items have been ignored.

Please run a fresh AVG scan and set it to quarantine the results.

Post a fresh AVG Antispyware log as well as a fresh HJT log.

Regards Howard

All Okay?

Did as you requested ...

Is it all okay now?

According to my isp the 17's were ComCast Services DNS servers ... But then again I had more training my first quarter of school than the tech support people do at my isp LOL

Thanks,
Di :wave:

Have HJT fix this inactive entry.

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {348FE907-249E-4C65-A838-F34A193FE1D1} - (no file)

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.

The 017 entries I told you to fix were the hijacker and are definitely not from your ISP.

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

Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread.

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.

3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
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

4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
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.

5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as a fresh HJT and Combofix log.

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.
