    Are you or your company using Prism software from http://www.newboundary.com/products/prismdeploy/prismdeploy_info.htm as an updater
    if not then it's possible that this entry suggests a backdoor hack on you as well
    O4 - Global Startup: Install Pending Files.LNK = C:\Program Files\SIFXINST\SIFXINST.EXE



    first copy these files and zip them and send to submit@thespykiller.co.uk with a short note referring to this thread

    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\winupd.exe

    Now download CWshredder from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk

    boot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    Delete these files
    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\winupd.exe
    c:\nosuch.mht

    Now Run Cwshreddder
    Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "FIX" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.


    Reboot After running cwshredder and as soon as possible follow this advice:
    Now as CWS Hijacks are normally installed via the byte verifier exploit in M$ JavaVM, just surfing a page with an infected applet can install it with no user participation. So once you’ve run the above, it is vital that you go here, click Scan for updates in the main frame, and download and install all CRITICAL updates recommended.

    then
    Reboot normally &



    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


    Run Sybot S&D

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &

    Run ADAWARE

    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R303 08.05.2004 or a higher number/later date

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

    reboot again

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

    Thanks for the quick response. I have already tried Adware, Spybot, CW shredder, BHO demon. This happened on My 10. I will try all of this when I get home from work. I don't know what Prism software is, what does it do?

    If you don't know, then you haven't got it, unless your computer is a laptop that is supplied by your company

    please confirm whether it is a company laptop or a personal home computer before we tell you what else to fix

    I have a home PC but I do a lot of work from home so I have software installed that allows me to log in to the server at work to get emails. It could be possible that Prism is connected with this, I don't know?

    in that case we will err on the side of caution and leave the prism entries just in case for now to allow you to make enquiries with IT at work, whether it's installed.

    all I've done inhe HJt fixes above is stop then starting at boot time, which stoill allows it to be run manually if needed. If Your IT department say that they don't use the prosm deployment system then let us know

    Hi Ron

    In reply to your email

    XP has inbuilt zip capabilities
    all you do is go to the file in questionand right click it, then select send to compresed(zip) folder. That makes a copy of the file and put's it in the same folder.

    Then just find those new zipped files and attach them to an email and send to me

    If you need help with that part then read here http://www.freeserve.com/help/beginnerguides/emailmadeeasy/emailattachfile.htm

    If you can't send them don't worry unduly, but it helps us to know exactly what the files contain so we can include them in the automatic cleaners, we can't do that without copies in the first place

    Any more problems just post and someone will help talk you through the procedures

    Delete these files
    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\winupd.exe
    c:\nosuch.mht

    In the instructions above, I was asked to fix check these files in highjack this and then turn around and delete them. I'm confused plus these look like important files. Do I delete them from Windows entirely? Do I do this in Windows or in highjack this? Please advise. I hope to complete everything tonight.

    Hi Ron

    checking the entries in HJt removes the references from the registry

    the actual files still need to be deleted as described above, so you need both steps to actually kill them off

    they look like important files but are known to be the causes of the problem

    Many hijackers use the names of important system files but have them running from the wrong place to cause this sort of havoc

    We are very precise and careful in our directions so we will never tell you to delete an important file

    we have since found out that IEengine.exe is a new form of CWS hijacker so also include this step please
    download CWshredder from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk then Run it
    Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "FIX" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.


    Reboot After running cwshredder and as soon as possible follow this advice:

    Looks like everything is back to normal but we'll have to see. I'm so finicky about this since I got cable. I'm almost ready to go back to dial up. It seems like what these inruders do should be a criminal offense but I guess it's hard to catch them. You guys are really good. I never did make any inquiries as to how you guys make a living but let me know how I can help as far as donations. Thanks!

    Hi Ron just acouple of clear ups hopefully

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [EarthLink Installer] " /C
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [winlogon] c:\windows\winlogon.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IEengine] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe

    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Delete these files
    c:\windows\winlogon.exe
    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe


    then go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp and select everything in that folder and delete it

    as XP will not let you delete files less than 24 hours old as it thinks it might need them please also do this
    while in the temp folder, select view and select details.
    then right click a blank part and select arrange icons by, and select show in groups and modified, that will give a list of all files in date order with today at the top of the page.
    select all the files/folders except the today ones and delete them all.

    1) Open Control Panel
    2) Click on Internet Options
    3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
    4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
    5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
    6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

    then
    Reboot normally & let us know if problems are gone

    I'm still concerned about this one O4 - Global Startup: Install Pending Files.LNK = C:\Program Files\SIFXINST\SIFXINST.EXE
    it appears to be the prism entry I mentioned earlier, can you checlk with your company IT department whether they have installed it on your computer, If they say no, then please copy the C:\Program Files\SIFXINST\ folder and send it to me for checking please

    the C:\Program Files\SIFXINST\SIFXINST.EXE appears to be the genuine prism lanovation updater software so leave it alone

    It looks like everything is ok. Question - You had me go in to the folder options and make some changes, "show hidden files and folders", "Hide protected operating system files", I defaulted these back to the recommended settings? Ok? Once again, thanks for all your help.
