Hi, my internet connection keeps shutting down whilst I'm online.
I've got all the protection you advise and run AdAware, Spybot S&D and Trojan Hunter every time I use the internet.

I've posted on this before but got no reply so I've been trying to hunt down teh problem myself. I've run everything in Safe Mode too.

The weird thing is I get different results from different XP accounts on this computer - including the registry (see HJT logs below).

Can you help me clean this thing up once and for all. Also advise how I can protect all users at the same time. Thanks

HJT logs from both accounts below. please help

hi chombs,

first turn off system:

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(winXP)

1. Turn off System Restore. (deletes old possibly infected restore point)
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.
------------------------------------
second account run hjt and have it fix:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,ShellNext = http://perky.nipz.com/

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Time] wuam.exe
-----------------------------------
update and run your antivirus software

there is also a newer version of hjt out now:

----->go here http://www.subratam.org and under Removal Tools link find and download----> Hijackthis.
Dont run it from within the zip file. Extract to a folder such as c:\Antispyware\Hijackthis\ or c:\Program Files\Hijackthis\ but not on your Desktop or a temporary folder.
This will allow us to use backups to restore entries if necessary and prevent it from being deleted when the temporary folders are cleaned out or creating its backup(s) or backup folder on the Desktop.

Once you have hijackthis.exe in it's permanent folder:
Start the program
Press Scan.
After the scan- the Scan button will change to a Save Log button.Save the log somewhere like your desktop.
Most of the log is harmless.dont fix anything yet.
copy/paste the saved log in your next reply.

hi chombs,

log looks good, cant see any malware that may be causing problems-- what do you mean by

connection shutting down

do you lose your internet connection? do you have a dial up connection or dsl/cable modem. what do you have to do after it shuts down?

Yeh, the internet connection drops out. I'm running Broadband. BT Broadband is my provider. When it drops out I hit the dial-up icon again and it ALWAYS comes back with "Error. The PPP link control protocol was terminated" the first time I try. When I try a second time it connects OK. I'm wondering if something has gotten into the modem software or something. Whenever the connection drops the modem seems to be going through some "teach" mode when I try to reconnect. Also - may be important? - When I log on the first time after booting up, I always get an Antivirus scan of a file called "Wuredir.cab.bak". Do you think this could have anything to do with it?

look there is a newer version of hjt out now, also Wuredir.cab.bak seems to be a windows update file. i would call my isps technical line for the dropping connection.

new version hjt:

----->go here http://www.subratam.org and under Removal Tools link find and download----> Hijackthis.latest version 1.99.1
Dont run it from within the zip file. Extract to a folder such as c:\Antispyware\Hijackthis\ or c:\Program Files\Hijackthis\ but not on your Desktop or a temporary folder.
This will allow us to use backups to restore entries if necessary and prevent it from being deleted when the temporary folders are cleaned out or creating its backup(s) or backup folder on the Desktop.

Once you have hijackthis.exe in it's permanent folder:
Start the program
Press Scan.
After the scan- the Scan button will change to a Save Log button.Save the log somewhere like your desktop.
Most of the log is harmless.dont fix anything yet.
copy/paste the saved log in your next reply.

Hi Shelf life, i contacted my ISP as advised (BT Broadband) and their chatroom suggested I download a patch for my modem. This seems to have worked. Basically my modem was not keeping up with the transmission speed. The patch enables it to keep up. Pending my latest HJT log being clean, may I thank you for coming back to me with my problem and spending some time to help me out. This site is a lifesaver. many thanks Chombs :weee:

Hi chombs,

I got the new HJT program last time you recommended


yes you did, my bad. your log looks good. and you got the modem working. happy safe surfing---dont forget to turn system restore back on:

You must be logged in as an Administrator to do this. If you are not logged in as an Administrator, the System Restore tab will not be displayed.
Turning off System Restore will clear out all previous restore points.
To turn off Windows XP System Restore:

NOTE: These instructions assume that you are using the default Windows XP Start Menu and have not changed to the Classic Start menu. To re-enable the default menu, right-click Start, click Properties, click Start menu (not Classic) and then click OK.

1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot. (will delete possibly infected restore points)

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

4. Reboot (new clean restore point)

for reference:

Please follow a few tips to remain malware free:

Make sure you keep your Windows OS current by visiting Windows update
occasionaly to download and install any critical updates and service packs. With out these you are leaving the backdoor open.

Also download, install and keep updated- Antivirus Software (and use only one):
Free for home users:
avast! 4 Home Edition Download
AVG free version 7.0 AVG free version v6.0 updates ended 12/31/04
AntiVir Personal Edition

Adjust your browser settings: Change your(active x) settings in IE. With IE open go to tools, internet options, security tab. Click on the internet globe, then custom level. Set the first option "download signed active x controls" to prompt, the next two to disable. Read more:
Internet Explorer Privacy & Security Settings
Working with Internet Explorer 6 Security
Many exploits are directed at Internet Explorer, you dont have to use it. Try a different browser:
Like Firefox,
And Pegasus Mail for a safer e-mail client.

Install a firewall. A firewall will control what comes in from the internet and what leaves your computer to the internet. A firewall will also alert you when a application trys to connect to the internet from your computer, this is a good way to catch crapware or trojans, trying to connect out bound from your computer- whats that and why does it need a internet connection? You can deny it access it until more investigation is done. Zone Alarm is a free and easy to use firewall, that will provide in and outbound protection. Microsoft XP firewall only provides inbound protection. SP2 adds in and out bound protection which is better than nothing, but is not as robust as third party firewalls, Be sure to run only >one< firewall.If you use another, be sure to disable XP's built in firewall. A inexpensive NAT hardware router with SPI (firewall)would be even better,along with a software firewall.
Zone Alarm
Kerio Personal Firewall
Outpost Firewall
Sygate Personal Firewall

Download, install and update before using:(if these are constantly finding malware, then you need to make some changes)
Ad-Aware SE Personal edition
Spybot Search and destroy
Becarful with spyware "removers and scanners"-- there are many "rogue/suspect" programs that "claim to remove" spyware.

Other programs to consider:
SpywareBlaster
IE-SPYAD
AntiTrojan software to fill in the gap:
a2 free
Ewido Security Suite
Trojan Hunter (30 day trial version)

Wilders Security Advisors

Watch what you download, and where you download it from. Many programs come bundled with "extra" crapware you may not want. Make sure you know what it is you will be downloading and installing. Visit the makers website, learn more about the program, Does the program you want come bundled with other "3rd party" programs? What do the 3rd party programs do? Will they deliver ads? Track your surfing habits?.You may be installing more than you think, Read the EULA agreement, you know that paragraph of stuff you "agree to" before the software installs? Stay away from warez and crack sites. Becarful what you download from file sharing networks.If you are not sure, scan it with your Antivirus app. A small file (in KB) is probably not what you think it is. Some p2p clients also install 3rd party stuff you probably dont want. If you search hard enough you can usually find a "clean" alternative to any software.
