  1. Hello:
    During a hijackthis scan I discovered that I have the above "trusted sites" on my computer.
    I have since found out they are trojans and would like to know how to remove them .
    I have also done an awf bak. I will paste the results here.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Can I copy and paste the results of the Hijack this and the awf?
    I tried to in my previous post but was not allowed.
    Thanks,
    bubuwubu

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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.

    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.

    Also, please post a HJT log as per these instructions.

    If you post the log files as attachments as per the instructions, you shouldn`t have any problems.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    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.

    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.

    Regards Howard :)

    Please double-click the FindAWF icon once again
    This time we are going to remove some folders.


    Use the following option: Press 3 then Enter to remove bak folders


    A text file opens called: folders.txt
    Click below the line and paste the following list of folders to be removed:

    Next, close and click Yes to save the changes.

    When done with the above, FindAWF automatically runs a new scan and opens a new log that you need to post.
    Please provide the new FindAWF log

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s now clean.

    To finish, run Option 4.

    Double-click the FindAWF icon once again.
    Use the following option: Press 4 then Enter to reset domain zones


    When the program returns to the main menu, use the following option:
    Press E then Enter to EXIT

    Now, in order to make sure your system is clean, please do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    If you follow the instructions properly, you`ll see that you only run HJT after you`ve completed the other steps.

    I have therefore removed your last HJT log.

    Please do so and post all 3 log files and the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan into your next reply.

    EDIT: Obviously our posts crossed lol.

    Hi Howard,

    The panda antiroot said that no rootkits had been found (it did not give me a logfile so I assume that this is sufficient). I am attaching my combofix logfile and the hijackthis done afterwards, but I don't know what the third file you want is. Is it from step 10? Because I have only gotten to the end of step 12.

    thanks

    That`s because there`s 15 steps and you need to complete them all.

    You`re not making this very easy are you?

    All you have to do is follow the instructions properly.

    I have yet again, removed your log files and await the correct log files when you`ve completed the instructions.

    Regards Howard :)

    Go HERE, download and install the latest version of Java.

    Once it`s installed, go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall all previous versions of Java, except version 6 update 3. Close Control panel.

    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the code box below into it:
    NOTE* make sure to only highlight and copy what is inside the quote box nothing out side of it.
    Also ..

    Pay particular attention to this :-

    Make sure the word File:: is on the first line of the text file you save (no blank line above it, & no space in front of it)
    Code:

    Save this as CFScript.txt

    Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

    [​IMG]

    This will start ComboFix again. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply together with a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    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.

    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) - {15565fce-361e-4b0e-b47d-d9f2d5c4c0b3} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\excotsec.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bthos4.dll
    C:\Qoobox

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    post fresh HJT and Combofix logs.

    That all looks fine.

    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.

    Regards Howard :)
