    Download ViewpointKiller

    * Unzip the program and all of the contents of ViewpointKiller.zip to a location such as your desktop.
    * Double click the ViewpointKiller icon to run ViewpointKiller.exe. Select the "File" menu, and select "Check to see if you have Viewpoint installed".
    * If ViewpointKiller indicates that any of the Viewpoint variants are installed, select the proper "Kill" option in the File menu.

    Follow the prompts and instructions very carefully, answering "Yes" or "No" depending on which option you are most comfortable with. The MsConfig instructions are very important, so be sure to read them carefully.

    Note: When done with ViewpointKiller, simply right click and delete all files that were unzipped.


    Open HijackThis and select Do a system scan only then place a check mark next to:

    O2 - BHO: {d5878220-4625-efa8-ff04-e3e748a41133} - {33114a84-7e3e-40ff-8afe-52640228785d} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ritcubls.dll (file missing)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {3A9EB43B-EE10-4159-8100-C4A3B6435372} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\jkhfd.dll (file missing)
    O9 - Extra button: PalTalk - {4EAFEF58-EEFA-4116-983D-03B49BCBFFFE} - C:\Program Files\Paltalk Messenger\Paltalk.exe (file missing)
    O20 - AppInit_DLLs: WIKI.DLL
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winwly32 - winwly32.dll (file missing)

    Close all windows except for HijackThis and click Fix checked


    Delete these files/folders, as follows:

    * Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quote box below into it (all except the word QUOTE):

    * Save this as CFScript on the desktop.
    * Then drag the CFScript (hold the left mouse button while dragging the file) and drop it (release the left mouse button) into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below. Important: Perform this instruction carefully!


    * ComboFix will begin to execute, just follow the prompts. After reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it shall produce a log for you. Post that log (Combofix.txt) in your next reply.

    Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause your system to hang

    Here are the two logs. When I did the viewpoint killer it successfully got rid of one of the components but the other two had errors.

    Did the HijackThis. When I clicked the green light in Avenger I got the message "Error: selected file does not appear to be a valid script." then "Error code: 0" I stopped after that just in case.

    That looks much better!

    How is the computer now?

    [​IMG] Your Java is out of date leaving your system vulnerable.

    * Check for any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
    ** The latest version is Java 6 Update 3. Remove all other entries.
    * Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
    * Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each of the Java versions.
    * Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.

    The computer seems to be running fine now. What security software would you suggest I turn on and use? I have avast! antivirus, and I was running Windows Defender. Should I keep those or change it? (Or add to it I suppose) Thanks so much.
  10. evilfantasy

    Items to increase security.

    Avast and Windows defender are fine to keep. You can also add. (all free)

    SpywareBlaster https://www.techspot.com/downloads/568-spywareblaster.html

    SpywareGuard https://www.techspot.com/downloads/1337-spywareguard.html

    I would suggest using a better firewall then the one built into Windows.
    Comodo Personal Firewall https://www.techspot.com/downloads/3702-comodo-personal-firewall-beta.html

    To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

    We also need to do some clean up.

    Go to Start > Run and copy and paste next command in the field:

    ComboFix /u


    Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
    Then hit Enter.

    This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again


    Please download OTMoveIt by OldTimer OTMoveIt.exe and place it on your desktop.

    1. Double click OTMoveIt.exe to launch it.
    2. Click on the CleanUp! button.
    3. OTMoveIt will download a list from the Internet, if your firewall or other defensive programs alerts you, allow it access.
    4. You will be prompted to allow the clean up procedure, click Yes
    5. When finished exit out of OTMoveIt

    Anything else just ask...

    So I was installing Comodo and after I restarted to finish setup a message popped up that said "ERROR: Could not load C:\Program Files\COMODO\firewall\cfpres.dll . Please checkif application installation folder has this file. Aborting application." I tried to uninstall Comodo and the same message popped up. I can't access the internet (I'm on a roommate's computer.) Did I mess something up?
