  1. I've been infected with these two things, but McAfee Security is not recognizing them or fixing them for me. I've read other threads on this and it seems very complicated. I am a novice, can anyone help me?

    Also, does anybody know what files are compromised with this infection? Do I need to worry about id or bank theft?

    Here is the Malwarebytes' log and HijackThis log. I actually dowloaded and used the SUPERAntiSpyware program before receiving your reply. I think it took care of some of the issues, but this new scan pulled up some other trojans and fake alerts.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iesearch&locale=EN_US&c=64&bd=PAVILION&pf=desktop
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iesearch&locale=EN_US&c=64&bd=PAVILION&pf=desktop
    R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Weather] C:\PROGRA~1\AWS\WEATHE~1\Weather.exe 1
    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.trymedia.com (HKLM)

    Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Close HiJackThis. Reboot into safe mode.

    Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

    Please go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following (if present):


    Please note any other programs that you don't recognize in that list in your next response.

    Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please delete these folders (if present):

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\gpwtspmj
    C:\Program Files\AWS

    After that, Reboot, and post a new HijackThis log here in a reply


    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.


    Run Kaspersky Online AV Scanner

    Order to use it you have to use Internet Explorer.
    Go to Kaspersky and click the Accept button at the end of the page.

    Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75 %. Once the license accepted, reset to 100%.
    • Read the Requirements and limitations before you click Accept.
    • Allow the ActiveX download if necessary.
    • Once the database has downloaded, click Next.
    • Click Scan Settings and change the "Scan using the following antivirus database" from standard to extended and then click OK.
    • Click on "My Computer"
    • When the scan has completed, click Save Report As...
    • Enter a name for the file in the Filename: text box and then click the down arrow to the right of Save as type: and select text file (*.txt)
    • Click Save - by default the file will be saved to your Desktop, but you can change this if you wish.

    These files I did not recognize in the Add/Remove programs list, but we may need them. I have no idea. See if you recognize anything suspicious:

    Customer Experience Enhancement 12.53 MB
    DivX .32MB
    Easy internet sign up 2.50MB

    First, can you try to keep everything as attachments and can you rename your kaspersky scan to .txt instead of .doc, I don't like opening doc files from potentially infected machines.

    I would uninstall the following:
    Otto <- This should be a game but if you don't use it I would remove
    Wild tangent

    Then delete these folders:
    C:\program files\Otto
    C:\program files\Wild Tangent


    Next I want you to get Winpatrol from my signature section and install it. After installed right click the scotty dog Icon in your system tray and select startup info, eliminate some programs from running everytime you start your computer by highlighting them and selecting disable. You will still be able to run these programs but they wont launch every time you turn on the machine. This should improve performance.

    We should also clean up some temp files:
    Download and Run ATF Cleaner
    Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune to your desktop.

    Double-click ATF Cleaner.exe to open it.

    Under Main choose:
    Windows Temp
    Current User Temp
    All Users Temp
    Temporary Internet Files
    Java Cache

    *The other boxes are optional*
    Then click the Empty Selected button.

    Firefox or Opera:
    Click Firefox or Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.

    Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

    In your next reply you should re attach the kaspersky scan as a .txt file. you can change it by right clicking it and selecting rename

    Here is the Kaspersky report as a txt as an attachment and the most recent HijackThis file as an attachment. I will delete my previous HijackThis posting. Is there some sort of information in there that shouldn't be posted publicly?

    I will tend to your next set of instructions asap.

    Blind Dragon TS Evangelist Posts: 3,908

    First go back to add/remove programs and uninstall PeoplePC

    Run CFScript

    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)
    Save this as CFScript.txt

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


    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.

    I could not uninstall people pc. It is not listed in the add/remove program list and it does not have an uninstall option in the program folder. The only thing I can do is remove the shortcut. I don't know where the actual program file is.

    But I did what you wanted with combofix and hijackthis anyway. However, I'm having trouble attaching the reports to this message. (The attachment icon does not respond when i click on it.) I will try again in a new posting.

    I still can't attach any files...none of the icons at the top of the reply box are accessible. Am I doing something wrong?
  17. Blind Dragon

    Blind Dragon TS Evangelist Posts: 3,908

    You could try going to edit profile on the left of the blue bar above, go down to attachments, then delete all attachments there and try again.

    If that doesn't work you may copy and paste the logs into your reply
  18. rlkscott

    rlkscott TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 17

    Was finally able to attach! Sorry for the delay!
