As an update, I have been browsing the internet as usual and have not gotten that nasty popup yet. Hopefully, its gone!!! How do we confirm that I am clean? I assume the latest HJT log that I posted? Also, once clean, should I delete these misc pgm's that I downloaded to delete this virus, such as HJT,Kaspersky etc?

Hi jster171,

I think the popup problem has been resolved, so if anything strange happens let me know. We just have a little tidying up to do, and when we're finished, you can remove the tools we have used.

Backup Your Registry:
  • Download ERUNT to your Desktop (right-click the link, select Save Target As..., select your Desktop and press Save)
  • Right-click erunt.zip, choose Extract All... and follow the prompts to unzip the program
  • Open the erunt folder on your Desktop and double-click ERUNT.exe to start the program
  • OK all the prompts to back up your registry to the default location.
Note: if it is necessary to restore the registry, open the backup folder and start ERDNT.exe

Open Notepad: press Start->Run, type notepad into the box and press OK
Select Format from the top menu and make sure Word Wrap is NOT checked.
Then, copy/paste the contents of the following code box into Notepad:
@echo off
reg delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v "MCW Startup" /f >> results.txt 2>>&1
reg query HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run >> results.txt 2>>&1
dir /a C:\smp.bat >> results.txt 2>>&1
dir /a C:\WINDOWS\ssvapad.dll >> results.txt 2>>&1
del runme.bat
Select File and Save as
Save it to your Desktop as "runme.bat" (you MUST type the quotes)
Locate runme.bat on your Desktop and double-click it.
A black box should open and close after a short time, this is normal.
Another text file should appear on your Desktop called results.txt.
Post the contents of this file in your next response.

Once complete, please post the results.txt output and a new HijackThis log.
ASAP & UNITE Member

Not to much of a problem. The items listed below were already checked/unchecked. So I didnt actually have to do anything with them. Other than that, all went well. I will delete the other tools/pgms that we used just to "cleanup" my desktop. I will probably keep HJT just in case I need that one again. Ended up using it alot throughout this virus mission. Thanks for your help, I indeed learned one valuable lesson. DONT TRY TO WATCH XX VIDEO CLIPS ON YOUR MAIN/PRIMARY PC!!

Hi jster171,

I recommend you re-hide files and folders as follows:

Re-hide hidden/system files and folders:

XXX video clips, along with cracked software and P2P filesharing are among the riskiest computer activities and all should be avoided. Here are some other tips to help you keep your computer clean:

I recommend you consider installing a Personal Firewall program. Even if you are behind a NAT router, I recommend you use firewall software as it will improve the security of your computer by monitoring and controlling outbound connections to the internet as well as inbound. There are various free packages available, one I can recommend is Comodo:
http://www.personalf...all.comodo.com/
A tutorial on firewalls to help you get started:
http://www.bleepingc...tutorial60.html

I recommend you install a custom hosts file such as MVPS HOSTS. This custom hosts file effectively blocks a wide range of unwanted ads, banners, 3rd party Cookies, 3rd party page counters, web bugs, and many hijackers.
For information on how to download and install, please read this tutorial by WinHelp2002
Note: Be sure to follow the instructions to disable the DNS Client service before installing a custom hosts file.
Also: subscribe to the mailing list to get update notifications.

Please take care when downloading programs. One of the easiest ways to be infected is to download freeware/shareware programs which come laden with malware - this includes allowing websites to install browser plug-ins or ActiveX controls. Before downloading, it is crucial to check whether the source is reputable.
One way to check is to use McAfee SiteAdvisor. Copy the domain name into the space provided and SiteAdvisor will give you a report on the website which can help you decide if it is safe. They also have a toolbar for IE and Firefox which adds this functionality to your browser.

Download and install the free version of WinPatrol. This program protects your computer in a variety of ways and will work well with your existing security software. Have a look at this tutorial to help you get started with the program.

I verified the checked boxes under the hidden files and folders just as you described. Im good to go with that. I have read all of your recommendations and want to verify that I keep my current Defender pgm and Avast pgm in addition to ones you recommend that I install? I assume that it will not be to much of a load on the PC with the extra pgms running in the background? Thats 3 extra pgm's that would be running at all times, correct?

Yes the programs I have recommended are in addition to the ones already on your machine. The custom hosts file is not a program and does not 'run' - it is a blocklist that directly stops any attempted connection to a list of bad sites so it may actually speed up browsing slightly. It is however important to disable the DNS Client service before installing, if you don't do this then a custom hosts file can cause a severe slowdown.

I don't think you will notice WinPatrol, it is very light on resources but gives very good protection by notifying you of changes made to various types of startups and hijack points.

The firewall will consume some resources on your computer, I can't say what affect this will have on performance, but it will make a big difference to security so I strongly recommend you use one. If you do have performance issues as a result, before uninstalling it try posting in the Microsoft Windows forum here at What the Tech to see if the Tech Team can bring your machine up to acceptable speed.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
