    Hello,

    Your post and my answer are going to be moved into a new thread. Having more than one person's hijackthis log in a thread can get confusing. The mod will let you know where it goes. Post has been moved to it's own thread, so disregard the previous statement.

    You need to update your antivirus and do a full system scan because there is one your system. Next, take a free Online Virus scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com or http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virusscan.aspx to verify it is removed.
    Here is info on the virus you have: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/trojan.mitglieder.h.html




    You are running hijackthis from your desktop, this is not a good idea because when we do a fix hijackthis will create backups and they will be spread all over your desktop. Right click on an empty part of your desktop and select "New" from the menu, then select"Folder". Name the folder Hijackthis or whatever you want. Place Hijackthis inside of this new folder.
    Then restart the computer if it hasn't been done so already, because Spybot needs that to be done to finish cleaning.




    Check the following items and then close all windows except hijackthis and click "fix checked". Some of the items may not be present after cleaning the virus and having Spybot finish


    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cus...rch/search.html

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page_bak = about:blank

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)

    O1 - Hosts file is located at: C:\WINNT\nsdb\hosts

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {F7F808F0-6F7D-442C-93E3-4A4827C2E4C8} - C:\WINNT\nem216.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [System Rustare] C:\WINNT\svohost.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ytqfyjuv] C:\WINNT\ytqfyjuv.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [alchem] C:\WINNT\alchem.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [window.exe] C:\WINNT\system32\window.exe

    O16 - DPF: {10000000-1000-0000-1000-000000000000} - file://C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iesearch.exe




    Then restart the computer and find the following to delete:

    C:\WINNT\svohost.exe <--- delete file Note spelling, not the valid svchost.exe and in wrong directory

    C:\WINNT\ytqfyjuv.exe <--- delete only file

    C:\WINNT\alchem.exe <--- delete only file

    C:\WINNT\system32\window.exe <--- should be gone after virus clean up, if still present, rescan with antivirus


    After doing all of the above, post a new hijackthis log.






    Note, you need to update Windows 2000 to service pack 4. This can be accessed by going to http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and following the prompts.

    Hello Nick,

    Thank you very much for all the help.... but the problem of this yoogee.com still persists....

    1) I have updated the Antivirus scan and then run the complete scan of the computer.

    2) I have "fix checked" the items listed by you.

    3) I have updated the Windows2000 to service pack4 and other updates also.

    4) I have also deleted the files as you suggested.

    "*****Re: C:\WINNT\system32\window.exe <--- should be gone after virus clean up, if still present, rescan with antivirus ****"

    This file "window.exe" is still present after the antivirus scan.

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

    I am attaching the log file of hijackthis.exe created after restarts and after following these processes.....

    Hi again, Did Norton or the online scans say anything about what they found? Do a scan again with the latest update and see whatNorton finds. If it doesn't find it, perhaps it is a new varient that you have gotten, and you should contact Symantic about it.
    By the way, Windows 2000 doesn't have System Restore, so we can rule that out.


    You also got some new malware files. Check these and close all windows except hijackthis and click "fix checked"

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msbb] c:\docume~1\admini~1\locals~1\temp\msbb.exe


    Then restart and find:


    C:\WINNT\system32\bridge.dll <-- delete file

    c:\docume~1\admini~1\locals~1\temp\msbb.exe <--- delete file

    Enable hidden files if you can't find them. http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html#5




    I don't have any info on this one. Can you find the file on your system and right click on it and select properites. Then post what they are.
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [fsd] C:\WINNT\fsd.exe


    Post back with a new HJT log and let us know how it is going.


    I would recommend the following to help keep you from getting infected again.

    Protection - download and install:

    SpywareBlaster will block bad ActiveX and malevolent cookies. http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

    IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
    http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/resource.htm#IESPYAD

    Both are very small free programs that you run once, and then just occasionally run to check for updates.

    And also see how did I get infected

    Please dont hide the post as I am suffering a lot due to this yoogee.com and the answers to my questions are also being given by "SPYWARE FIGHTER" Nick.

    If you can help me out with this, it will be really appreciated.

    Thanks & Regards, :(

    follow Nicks advice and then post a new log and we'll see what else needs doing

    the hidden/removed post was not relevant to your problem in the slightest

    You wouldn't happen to have looked up that fsd.exe and gotten some info on it?

    Hi Nick,

    I checked the properties of fsd.exe and it says :

    Type of File : Application

    Description : fsd

    Size : 92 kb

    Created : Wednesday, May 12, 2004, 12:01:16 PM

    Accessed : Today, May 14, 2004, 11:30:10 AM

    I hope this may help you to decide what this file is....!!

    Thanks,

    Hi Sukhi

    I got the file it's N-Case 180 parasite that causes pop ups etc

    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: [fsd] C:\WINNT\fsd.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:\WINNT\fsd.exe




    Edit:

    Just a short comment

    I love the way it says inside the file amongst the other rubbish

    "The system has detected that a third-party application has removed n-CASE , possibly without your consent. This may cause some programs not to run as expected"

    As if it doesn't stealth install itself without your knowledge and consent, the cheek of these parasites is beyond belief :p

    Hi...

    I was receiving this message in a small window.. but i kept ignoring that..

    "The system has detected that a third-party application has removed n-CASE , possibly without your consent. This may cause some programs not to run as expected"

    Now, i have followed the instructions and my PC is as clean as it was before...

    Thanks once again...

    Steve
