    Hey, this problem just started this morning (6/30/04). Aside from ever increasing spyware on my computer, the hourglass symbol keeps flashing next to my cursor. I've also noticed that my computer seems to be running much slower than usual. I've run ad-aware, but more and more objects seem to be appearing each time I reboot. Thanks for your help.

    Hi yoyoko

    First, to remove the Peper trojan

    Download Newuninst.exe
    http://downloads.subratam.org/Newuninst.exe

    Double click on 'Newuninst.exe' and press *Uninstall*. Let it run and when the progress bar says *complete* you can then press *close*. You must be online to have this work and do not block any attempts for the program to connect to internet if your firewall requests access.

    Then also download and run this tool:
    Download the PeperFix tool, save it to your desktop, doubleclick on it, click 'Find and Fix' and reboot your PC.

    http://downloads.subratam.org/PeperFix.exe

    Download Ad-aware from here: http://www.computercops.biz/downloads-file-292.html
    Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
    After installing but before running, update Ad-aware by using its Globe icon.
    After updating, shutdown and restart Ad-aware.
    Ad-aware is ready to scan and clean your system following these steps:

    Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
    "Unload recognized processes during scanning."
    Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
    "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
    Press "Scan Now"
    Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
    Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
    Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
    Select the active partition which is usually C:
    Press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
    If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again
    Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"
    Press "next"
    When it asks to remove all checked items, Press "OK"
    Close Ad-aware, reboot your system and go on to Step 2 below.


    Spybot S&D
    The download for Spybot S&D is available here: http://www.computercops.biz/downloads-file-108.html

    Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
    Run Spybot S&D from desktop icon or Start menu.
    Press "Search for updates" button to get list of updates available.
    Press "Download updates" button.
    Close all IE windows and close & restart Spybot S&D.
    Press "Check for problems" button.
    Have SpyBot remove all it marks in red by pressing "Fix selected problems".

    Close Spybot S&D, reboot your system .

    Empty your Temporary Internet Files and history in Internet Options. And clean out your
    %Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp
    folder. It's a good idea to do that regularly.

    Then Disable system restore: Instructions here
    Reboot

    Enable System Restore.

    Pls. post another log.

    It looks like a lot of the spyware is gone, but the hourglass is still blinking next to my mouse cursor. Does this problem have to do with spyware or is it something totally different?

    Hi yoyoko

    we are NOT done yet.......

    Check the following items in Hijackthis - close ALL windows\browsers except HijackThis and click "Fix checked:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\plzlflty.exe
    C:\documents and settings\buyer\local settings\temp\PJG.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ryptuic] C:\WINDOWS\System32\ryptuic.exe


    NOTE....even in safe mode you may have to open taskmanager and end task on some of them before you can delete them.

    Make sure you can view hidden and system files: Instructions here

    Then Boot to safe mode: Instructions here

    Delete the following files\folders IF still present:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\plzlflty.exe
    C:\documents and settings\buyer\local settings\temp\PJG.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\ryptuic.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\dp-him.exe

    Then reboot and use AdAware as described here:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=15913

    Then use the Disk Cleanup Utility to empty all your Temp folders.

    Then Disable system restore: Instructions here
    Reboot

    Enable System Restore.

    Pls. post another log.

    Maybe it would also be wise to run an on-line scan:

    Go for free online Virus scans here:

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself.
