  1. Just a few minutes ago I got the C:\WINNT\secure.html message about spyware, and a simple google search (if only my brother had the brains to do that in the first place) confirmed what I thought, muy malo. My log has several items that I know for sure from what I've seen already need to be removed, but it's the stuff I don't recognize that I need help with. I bet most of this stuff came on when my bro d/l the bogus Virtual Bouncer, which I still see remnants of in there. I've already run CWShredder and AdAware, and some things on AdAware just keep coming back, which is probably something in here. Thanks in advance!

    Hi stoplaughing, and welcome to Wilders.

    Before you begin, please create a permanent folder for HijackThis, and move the HijackThis.exe file into that folder.
    HijackThis creates backups in the folder it is ran from, and if it is ran from a temp folder, the backups will be easily lost.

    Could you please locate the svchost.exe file in the C:\WINNT folder, and zip up a copy of it and email it to Pieter_Arntz. You can find his email addy in his Profile here. Include a link back to this thread in the body of the email message. Thank you.

    Then open HijackThis and rescan.
    With ALL browsers and any open windows closed, place a check beside the following items and click *Fixed check:

    Boot your computer into Safe Mode.
    Then find and delete the following files and folders listed in bold:
    C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar <--folder
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\slmss <--folder
    C:\WINNT\ieasst.dll <--file
    C:\WINNT\Belt.exe <--file
    C:\WINNT\mwsvm.exe <--file
    C:\WINNT\frsk.exe <--file

    In case any of the above files are hidden, make sure you have all files and folders viewable: How to Show hidden files and folders.

    Make sure both your antivirus and your Ad-Aware are up-to-date, and do another scan with them.

    Re-scan with HijackThis and post a new log here in this thread to be checked.

    Regards,

    snap
     
  3. Wow, I notice a huge difference already.

    All right, a few notes from all of those scans:

    I already had HT unzipped, but used the zipped one to create the original log. :p

    No problems with the first fix of HT.

    Followed with reboot into safe mode.

    Went to delete the files/folders you listed, 2 were not found:
    Belt.exe (I did delete that a while ago when it was eating my resources, the links remained and showed up in the HT log, I'm assuming)
    ieasst.dll (no idea, search for it turned up nothing)

    My svchost.exe file was actually in \WINNT\system32 rather than \WINNT, but I'll zip it and E-mail it anyways.

    I followed all that with an adaware scan, 9 tracking cookies deleted (at least those browser hijackers weren't there!)

    Next, the AV scan found 3 archived files as trojans, deleted them.

    Reran HT and have a new, much shorter log. Thank you very much! Combined with the fact Illinois is beating Cincinnati 49-33 at halftime right now, I couldn't be much happier (I live near Chicago). :)
