I just installed Avira Antivirus on my friends computer as she has not used this computer very much and never had a full virus program :(. Her computer is constantly getting error pop-ups and the internet would shut down. It was also very slow. I am not very familiar with removing trojans and other types of viruses. I had used your service a long time ago and received a lot of great info and help so I thought I would see if you guys can help me out again. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. THanks!

I keep seeing things like TR/Dldr.Bety.A , TR/Drop.Small.MR.1, and TR/Dldr.Apropo.R - Trojan

I am also being redirected to http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx each time I pull up explorer. TR/Dldr.Apropo.R - Trojan warning from my virus software pops up everytime I load the internet.

Hi dekete,

Please open Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs, and remove the following:

DelFin Media Viewer
Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition v1.3.1_04
Kazaa Media Desktop 2.0.2

The Java installation is out of date and now a security risk, you can get the latest update (version 6 update 6) from here when the machine is clean. The other two programs contain malware

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then, open HijackThis, choose Do a system scan only and place a checkmark next to the following lines:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://find-on-the-net.com/search.htm
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://shdocpe.dll/asst.htm
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {016235BE-59D4-4CEB-ADD5-E2378282A1D9} - C:\Program Files\CxtPls\plg0\cxtpls.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE
O9 - Extra button: Ebates - {6685509E-B47B-4f47-8E16-9A5F3A62F683} - file://C:\Program Files\Ebates_MoeMoneyMaker\Sy350\Tp350\scri350a.htm (file missing) (HKCU)
O16 - DPF: {9DBAFCCF-592F-FFFF-FFFF-00608CEC297C} - http://download.weat...uginstaller.cab

Then close all open windows apart from HijackThis, press Fix checked, OK the prompt and close HijackThis.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please download OTMoveIt2 by OldTimer to your Desktop (right-click the link, select Save Target As..., select your Desktop and press Save)
  • Double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to start the program.
  • Copy the lines in the OTMoveIt file list below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):
    OTMoveIt File List:
    C:\Program Files\CxtPls

    C:\Program Files\Ascentive
    C:\Program Files\Recommended Hotfix - 421701D
    C:\Program Files\DownloadWare
  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to Move" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Then click the red Moveit! button.
  • It may take a few minutes to run because it will be searching your hard drive for a couple of files
  • When it has finished, copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of it and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • If OTMoveIt asks to reboot your computer, allow it to do so. The report will appear in Notepad after the reboot.
  • Close OTMoveIt2

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now open HijackThis, select Open the Misc Tools section
Press the Open Uninstall Manager... button
Scroll down the list and find this entry:

Recommended Hotfix - 421701D

Click it to highlight it, then press Delete this entry
Repeat for this entry:

MediaLoads Installer

Then close HijackThis

You're welcome dekete :)

If those Add/Remove Programs entries which gave errors are still present we can remove them:

Now open HijackThis, select Open the Misc Tools section
Press the Open Uninstall Manager... button
Scroll down the list and find this entry:

DelFin Media Viewer

Click it to highlight it, then press Delete this entry
Repeat for this entry:

Kazaa Media Desktop 2.0.2

Then close HijackThis

Next, please do an online scan with Kaspersky:
Open Kaspersky Online Scanner in Internet Explorer using this link:
http://www.kaspersky...kavwebscan.html
  • Click Accept and the web scanner will begin to load
  • If a yellow warning bar appears at the top of the browser, click it and choose Install ActiveX Control
  • You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, click Install
  • If you are prompted about another ActiveX control called Kaspersky Online Scanner GUI part then allow it to be installed also.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on Next and then Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • The program will start to scan your system.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on the Save Report As... button, change Save as type: to Text file and save the file to your desktop as Kaspersky.txt
Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the license, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75 %. Once the license is accepted, reset to 100%.

Once complete, please post the Kaspersky report and a new HijackThis log. Also, let me know how your computer is running now.

  • Copy the lines in the OTMoveIt file list below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    C:\WINDOWS\NDNuninstall4_80.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\NDNuninstall4_88.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\NDNuninstall4_94.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\NDNuninstall5_20.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\NDNuninstall6_38.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\pop4.dll

    EmptyTemp
  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to Move" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Then click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of it and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • If OTMoveIt asks to reboot your computer, allow it to do so. The report will appear in Notepad after the reboot. - save a copy of this report to your Desktop

Clean up with OTMoveIt2:
  • Double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to start the program.
  • Close all other programs apart from OTMoveIt2 as this step will require a reboot
  • On the OTMoveIt main screen, press the CleanUp! button
  • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

Create a new, clean System Restore point which you can use in case of future system problems:
Press Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
Select Create a restore point, then Next, type a name like All Clean then press the Create button and once it's done press Close

Now remove old, infected System Restore points:
Next click Start->Run and type cleanmgr in the box and press OK
Ensure the boxes for Recycle Bin, Temporary Files and Temporary Internet Files are checked, you can choose to check other boxes if you wish but they are not required.
Select the More Options tab, under System Restore press Clean up... and say Yes to the prompt
Press OK and Yes to confirm

Once complete, please post the new OTMoveIt report and a new HijackThis log.
Also, please tell me if you get any alerts from your antivirus after the above has been completed.

I have not seen any more ”Deny access to the {Trojans} pop up" from antivirus since doing this. Here are the reports from OT and Hijack this. You wanted the original OT I did before the system restore correct? Should I uninstall the virus detection programs that I have downloaded on my computer? The computer works great now anyhow and your steps were very easy to follow. I appreciate all of the help you have given me and my roommate is very happy to use her computer again! Its just like new :lol:

Hi dekete,

Sounds good, I think your machine is now clean of malware :)
If you followed all the instructions, the tools we have used to clean your machine have been removed. The Antivir antivirus package you have installed is a good product and should be left in place to protect the system. Here are some further tips to help you keep the machine clean:

You have a good antivirus program installed, however I recommend you install antispyware software with real-time capabilities - this means it protects you from system changes and spyware while you are working, not just removing malware after it has been installed. There are a range of paid-for and free packages available, a free one I can recommend is Windows Defender, available here:
http://www.microsoft...re/default.mspx

You should 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 Online Armor
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.

Please post back to let me know that you have read this, and if there are any further issues.

Everything is working great now. We have not noticed anymore unwanted pop up or notices from the virus software. I am going to look into the programs/sites you have listed and get some descent protection on this computer. I really appreciate your time and your easy instructions. I'm glad to find out whatthetech is still as awesome as Tom Coyote was.
