This isn't my computer this time... I used to just browse TomCoyote back when it was here...

Always wanted to be able to fix problems like these, but it's all still a foreign language to me, so here I am asking for help from the awesome people here.

The rundown of what's wrong... Many popups. And I mean MANY. Opening IE isn't opening just one window. It's 3 windows, with 4 tabs each. It's a real pain. Hopefully, that's a good general overview. =)

This is my friend's laptop, and he told me there were a few issues with it. I thought maybe hey, I could just remove a few startup programs, install a nice anti-virus, and it would be all good. There's a lot more to it than that. :pullhair: Help would be greatly appreciated!

hi,

we will get two downloads to use: first one is malwarebytes download, install,update and use first:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop:

http://www.besttechi.../mbam-setup.exe

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform FULL SCAN, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt

next one is combofix, download and scan with it last:

Download combofix from one of these links and save it to your Desktop:

http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe
http://download.blee...Bs/ComboFix.exe

double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze.


finally after the above, post the malwarebytes log, the combofix log and a new hjt log please.

Thank you, shelf life for looking into this. At this point, the computer no longer takes 20 minutes to load, and I thank you.

hi Mattacon,

ok good. this:

BitDownload

is a p2p app that installs third party software.
from my old web page:

Bittorrent Clone/ripoff bundled with 'sponsor' malware. Several others: Bitroll, Torrent101,Torrentq, Get-Torrent, Bitgrabber, Torrentsoftware. All about 1MB in size. Sponsor malware spelled out in the EULA: CidHelp, delivers popups. Avoid them.


you can remove it via add/remove programs panel. also please provide a uninstall list. like this:
start hjt click on open misc tools section, click on open uninstall manager, click on save list. you can copy'paste the list in next reply.

:huh: To me, there looks like nothing to be out of the ordinary, but I leave that to your jurisdiction. Thank you very much. =)

[EDIT: I found a very unusual directory, yet it's nowhere to be found. Here's the filepath; maybe you can make heads or tails of it:

C:\Users\Kyle\!

I discovered the filepath, by using the Vista search bar. I tried opening the file location to the file, but it refers to one as unavailable. I wonder why all those files continue to show, if there's nothing there? It appeared to be a malicious file, which is why I wanted to open the location, and not the file itself. Other than that, the computer seems to be in top condition.]

hi Mattacon,

ok good. thanks for the info.
uninstall list looks fine, i was looking for CiDhelp in there.

C:\Users\Kyle\!

i noticed that in the combofix log. can you find it using explorer?

see if you can find this:
C:\ProgramData\hide cool shim link
looks like it may be a left over malware folder? you can delete it

may have to do this first to show all files:
To enable the viewing of Hidden files follow these steps:

1. Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
2. Click on the Start button. This is the small round button with the Windows flag in the lower left corner.
3. Click on the Control Panel menu option.
4. When the control panel opens you can either be in Classic View or Control Panel Home view:

If you are in the Classic View do the following:
1. Double-click on the Folder Options icon.
2. Click on the View tab.
3. Go to step 5.

If you are in the Control Panel Home view do the following:
1. Click on the Appearance and Personalization link .
2. Click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.
3. Go to step 5.

5. Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.
6. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide extensions for known file types.
7. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
8. Press the Apply button and then the OK button and shutdown My Computer.
9. Now Windows Vista is configured to show all hidden files.

Well, I uninstalled CiDHelp when you told me to -- So TA DA! Clean. I followed those previous steps you just gave me, and the folder was still nowhere to be found. I'm not going to worry about it too much. I send my buddy on his way, and told him if he had any more issues to just get an account here. :thumbup: Thanks so much shelf life, for all your help. =)

hi Mattacon, your welcome. some info for you, probably your buddy needs it more than you my top ten: The Short Version: 1) Keep your OS, browser and software up to date. 2) Know what you are installing to your computer. Do you trust the source? 3) Install, keep updated: antivirus and one or two anti-malware applications. 4) Dont click on adds/pop ups or offers from websites to install software. 5) Dont click on offers to "scan" your computer. 6) Dont click on links or install files you receive via E-Mail, IM, Chat Rooms or Social Sites, no matter how tempting the message. Do you trust the source? 7) Set up and use limited accounts rather than administrator accounts. 8) Consider using an alternate browser and E-mail client. 9) Install and understand the limitations of a third party software firewall. 10) If your habits include visiting or installing files from: warez, cracks/keygens, P2P or adult sites you are much more likely to encounter malicious code. Do you trust the source? longer version in link below happy safe surfing out there.

Once again shelf life, thank you. I have let him know of your advice. I think his Limewire days are coming to a close. I also advised him against the warez, as it was pretty obvious what he was up to. Thank you once again, and this topic can now be closed. =)
