I can not open any browsers with sysnatec, trend micro etc.. I saw what adrian had posted and tried to follow the instructions... but to no avail! I was able to download ewido, but it would not let me update. :scratch: I went ahead and ran ewido in safe mode... I was working on this most of the night, and then forgot to save the report. This is my work laptop that is infected and I would be greatly appreciated any assistance you could provide! :D The operating system is XP.

Please do not start all of the multiple posts. All volunteers, we are working as fast as we can and multiple posts only add to the confusion and lesson the chance of anyone getting helped. If five days go by without an answer, this is the link you post at: http://forums.tomcoy...showtopic=31622
Thank you





Hello and welcome to TomCoyote forum. If you still need help, here is what I need you to do.

1) I do not know where you have HJT.exe: X:\HijackThis.exe. This is where I want it: C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe. Please note it is now on your C drive and it now has a folder where logs and backups for safety can be stored. Either move the one on x:\ to there or delete that one and download it again here: http://www.malwarere.../downloads.html

2) I can't see the worm, here it is: http://www.sophos.co.../w32chodeg.html Perhaps ewido will clean it for us. You need to review the information at that link, under all the tabs so you can understand what damage it has done to your system that has to be fixed. At the time Symantec notified you it also told you the path of the worm, it would really help to know that. Try searching for it using the information you have to see if it will tell you just where it is located. You will need to enabled hidden files:
http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

3) It looks to me like this log was run in safe mode? Please make sure all logs unless I ask otherwise are in normal mode with everything enabled in MSConfig.

4) Download CCleaner from this link: http://www.ccleaner.com/ Review the instructions http://www.ccleaner.com/help/tour1.asp and please do not run it until I ask you to.

5) Download, update, configure and run these two programs: http://tomcoyote.org/aawsb.php
The newest version of Ad-aware is 1.06 and Spybot 1.04. Even if you have these programs, use the link to get the newest version, update and configure them as in the link. Run Spybot first, reboot then run Ad-aware. Both programs back up what they remove so delete anything the programs say should be removed.

6) Ewido scan:
Please download Ewido Security Suite it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install ewido security suite
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Then click on Start Update
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido.
Ewido manual updates

Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**
    • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close ewido security suite.
**(Ewido for example has been flagging parts of AVG Anti-Virus, pcAnywhere and the game "Risk")

7) Open HijackThis and choose "Do a system scan only" then check the box in front of these line items:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://srch-us4nb.hpwis.com/

Close all programs but HJT and all browser windows, then click on "Fix Checked"

Enable hidden files&folders..reverse the process when finished.
http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

RIGHT Click on Start then click on Explore. Locate and delete these items:

(if you find where it is, delete it here, I believe it will be in C:\Windows\system32\ )

C:\Windows\Prefetch\ >>> delete everything in this folder (NOT THE FOLDER)
Prefetch info: http://www.windowsne...refetch-XP.html

8) Run CCleaner, Windows & Applications when you run the registry cleaner (Issues) you will be prompted to backup before you can remove stuff, make sure you do. Then restart the computer and post a new HJT log and the Ewido scan results in this same thread along with any feedback you have.

Thanks...pskelley

PSKelly, Thanks so much for your reply. The location of the worm that Symantec showed was c:\WINDOWS\system32\guefmwbys\smss The reason HJT was on X drive was because the virus wouldn't let me download anything in normal mode, nor would it let me open anything remotely to do with an online virus scan, even ewido. So I downloaded them on the home computer after installed, it still wouldn't let me open them up after they were downloaded, and in safe mode of course I couldn't do the updates. As for the log running in safe mode, the virus would not let me open my regedit in normal mode. Since my last post, I went to the Symantec sight and printed off their instructions, worked through most of it but felt as though I hadn't cleaned off everything the virus had stored on my computer. Thanks for all your help. I followed your instuctions and here is my new HJK log.

The website is experiencing problems and until it is fixed I can't say when I can post. I can say I need to see the ewido scan results as requested in the instructions.

I see nothing to be concerned about in the HJT log right now. These two lines:
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
can be removed with HJT if you do not want the restrictions. If you set them that is fine.

If you were able to clear the Prefetch and run CCleaner that should have cleaned all of the hiding places of other junk. I would use search companion to see if it can locate that item:
c:\WINDOWS\system32\guefmwbys\smss If anything shows up, navigate to it and delete the folder in red. Post that ewido log with and comments about how you are running. If you reviewed the information under all tabs in the link about this item, you will know that your security programs may have been compromised. If you saw this:

W32/Chode-G modifies the HOSTS file, changing the URL-to-IP mappings for selected websites, therefore preventing normal access to these sites. The new HOSTS file will typically contain the following:

I believe we should restore your original hosts file. Use this link: http://www.funkytoad.com/hoster.htm review the instructions and download the program. Then choose item #4 to restore the original hosts file.

Please post that ewido scan results, I need to see the results of the first scan.

Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
Click Save report.
Save the report .txt file to your desktop.


Thanks...Phil

Phil, I completed a search previously on c:WINDOWS\system32\guefmwbs\smss and deleted the file guefmwbs. As for the original hosts file I had followed Symantec's instructions on removal, located the host file with a search, deleted the bogus IP address for security websights and saved. I'd post the ewido log but strangely enough it only gave me 4 tracking cookies that I removed. The biggest feat was removing was the 04 entry that ran csmss on start up, when I tried to remove it in HJT it gave me a system error the it was currently being used and unable to delete, and task manager wouldn't let me stop the process either. The smart college kid was home for Thanks Giving break and deleted the entry under Spybot\tools\System start up. I rebooted and checked the HJT and it was gone! Thank you so much for your assistance. :wavey: Best Regards, DeLynn

Hi DeLynn, Just a few comments, I also was surprised at the ewido scan report, it is rare they are that small and cookies usually make up the bulk of it. Seems you may have done some cleaning or maintenance prior to running it. HJT will normally end a process when you remove an item and allow removal if it is done right away without a restart. Some stuff can be hard and often can be remove in Safe Mode as they are not running. There are other "meaner" tools available also. You did a great job and it was nice the your son stopped in to help. If you ever find the time and want to learn more, there are free online classes available.

This junk often gets into the System Restore files, and the following link will show you how to clean those files to keep from getting reinfected if you need SR for a valid reason:
http://service1.syma...src=sec_doc_nam

CCleaner does a fair job of cleaning in the registry. If you want a good cleaning (always back up the registry before doing anything in it) I would suggest this freeware.

http://www.hoverdesk.net/freeware.htm with these instructions:
Backup your Registry...
- Press "CTRL - ALT - DEL" keys all at the same time to start "Task Manager"
- In the Task Manager window click on "File", then from the drop-down menu select "New Task (Run...)"
- In the "Create New Task" window enter\type "regedit" (without quotes)
- Once Regedit opens click on the FILE menu and select Export
- Save the file as backup. Save the file somewhere you will remember and not delete.
IMPORTANT: make sure to set the export range to ALL

download RegSeeker. Extract it to it's own folder,
open and double click RegSeeker.exe to start the program.
Maximize the window and click clean registry. Check all sections and click OK.
When the scan is complete, verify the backup box in lower left corner is checked
and click the select all button, then select all again. Then right click within
the search results and select delete. Run it again and again, deleting everything
it finds until it finds nothing. Reboot and make sure your programs are working properly,
control panel and add/remove programs windows open, etc (basically just do a quick check of everything).
In the event anything was 'broken', you can open RegSeeker, click backups and double click
any/all files to put the information back. A reboot may be required for the effects to be seen.
Reboot When done.

Here is some great information from Tony Klein, Texruss, ChrisRLG and Grinler to help you stay clean and safe online:
