Spyware keeps coming back

Question: Spyware keeps coming back

I was attacked by spyware a month or so ago, I was able to remove most of it on my own using AVG anti-spyware, killbox, hijack this, and some registry fixes. I am currently using AVG to guard my system, but some of the problems keep coming back again and again. Namely, tiny.id (xoasonqc.exe in the system32 folder) and trojan.agent.aoy (tnypwspg.exe) also, hjy.dll and gebyawv.dll which is particularly irritating, as AVG pops up that it finds it at least twice every boot up. Right now, I have been quarantee-ing the files as it seems when I set to "permanently remove" they came back quicker. In the infections log of AVG, gebyawv is listed at least twenty times. Since the attack I have noticed other quirks such as pages not loading correctly in Netscape 9, seemingly slower operation when launching programs (some perhaps due to system resources taken up by AVG and A squared which now run in background). Please let me know if I can completely elimate this problems and restore my system to it's former operating conditions.

Preferred Solution: Spyware keeps coming back

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ive always liked cleaning my computer with programs and have never gotten problems removing spyware because I search at google, search at forums and have also have the programs Ewido, SpywareGaurd, CounterSpy, Ad-Aware, SpyBot SD and Spyware Blaster but I dont know why some spyware keep coming back called Trojan.Pakes, Downloader.Small, and a file that adds a BHO called vtsqo.dll which is at the system32 folder. I use Windows XP which is up-to-date and have all my programs updated and I scan at Safe Mode but after a while a popup comes up from Ewido saying im infected with Trojan.Pakes/Downloader.Small and/or Spyware Gaurd comes up saying vtsqo.dll is trying to add a BHO and when I click "Remove the BHO" it just keeps coming back to the same window again so I cant take it off. I even went to Safe Mode, scanned with Ewido and then used a program to remove all my temp files but it keeps coming back. Please Help, I will do anything to take those things off.

Answer:Help Please! Spyware etc keeps coming back!

Spent the last 3 days cleaning, scanning and cleaning my comp again. Spywares, Adwares, Malwares, Trojans and even Viruses keeps coming back.

Some of them seems to just come back... I've removed(hopefully) vundo, js/psyne(spellcheck?), random trojans, hacking tools etc.

Right now AdAware is seeing Win32.Spyware.Acoona and Bargain Buddy. I could of swore I've removed everything when I used SD Fix.

I'm having a problem with spyware (I think!) on a new laptop. I have several spyware removers such as Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Terminator among others. They seem to detect spyware mainly in the system32 folder, namely vtutu.dll and various other .dll files. I think they are attached to explorer.exe and firefox. I find it hard to delete these files as they are running constantly on processes such as explorer.exe and hence windows cannot delete them. I have managed to delete them a few times but they keep reappearing! I am at the end of my tether and cannot figure this one out so any help will be greatly appreciated. this is my hijack this log as of 15/11/07Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 21:25:27, on 15/11/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007\aawservice.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\aswUpdSv.exeC:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashServ.exeC:\W...

Ok I have ran both Ad-Aware and Spybot on a cutsomer's PC. I got everything off, or so it looked like. I reboot and there is about 40 instances of adware/spyware that come right back. Mostly seems to be CoolWWWsearch. It repopulates the "hosts" file also. Then I rebooted and ran both Ad-Aware and Spybot again in safe mode. Ran CWShredder, Cleaned the "hosts" file, and cleaned out all the TEMP directories. Everything checks out in safe mode but when I boot into regualr mode, open IE, and run the spyware removal tools it is right back. Also the "hosts" file keeps getting junked up with bad addresses. I clear them out, save the file, reopen it and they are right back! Here is my HijackThis log and also the "hosts" file showing what keeps repopulating it. Thanks...

I have a spyware problem that I can't fix. Usually, if Spybot S&D doesn't find it, I have been able to track it down in the windows or system folder and delete it in DOS, but I'm stuck this time.

It all started when the IST bar helped itself to my computer along with Gator, Xupiter and some other crap. Spybot S&D did not get rid of the IST bar, but I found the istsrv.dll file and deleted some keys in the registry to lose sight of any IST stuff.

The problem now is, every time I go to a page that has pop-ups, such as Sunspot News and even my own webpage, something is causing the original ads to be replaced with tracking cookies from DoubleClick, MediaPlex, and Avenue A.

AdAware found and deleted 37 different files and reg keys, but the problem still remains. The virus scan came up empty. I don't know if it is a javascript thing or a .dll file or what.

I downloaded Pop Up Killer and it stopped some of the action, but the cookies are still getting through.

Does anyone know what files or registry key might be causing this. I'm running 98SE and IE 5.5. I feel like I'm ready to do an fdisk right now.

Hi there,

Below the line is a log file from "Hijackthis" showing my system processes. I have a spyware problem. I run spyware doctor, and many other spyware programs to help get rid of the spyware. But everytime I do a spyware scan, the spyware shows up on the next scan. I have tried running the scan in safe mode, but no difference. Cheers in advance.

I've already gotten rid of a lot of the spy ware already, but no matter what I do it comes back. I've run Ad-adware SE, removed everything that the program found and rebooted. Next I run Spy-bot S&D remove what it finds and reboot. Finally I run HJT and input the log on the HJT analyze website and removed anything marked "Nasty". I did this process about 5 times now and the pop-ups are still coming back. Below is my latest HJT log after running the 2 programs aforementioned. I know that the BHO file needs to be removed but that is the one that returns every time!! How do I permanently fix this? Please help!

One of the computers in the school library at work was full of spyware. I was able to remove most of it using Spybot and Adaware but it just keeps coming back. I downloaded HijackThis and removed a number of items but I don't dare remove any more. I'm posting the HijackThis log. There is an R1 item that I keep removing but it keeps returning. After a while some of the other items that I have previously removed come back too.
There is a whole list of junk in Favourites that don't show in Order Favourites and don't respond to right-clicking. I find the whole thing very frustrating and thought I'd turn the problem over to the experts at Tech Support Guy .

A bit less than a week ago some spyware was detected on my laptop (I think it was called Spyware Protect 2009) which essentially wouldn't let me open anything and kept telling me I had a worm. I managed to get rid of it, but ever since then I've had a number of different things come through. What happens is a box will pop up saying that a program called "update.exe" needs permission to continue, and it messes up the computer no matter what you click. AVG says it catches them and removes them, but they still cause problems for my computer - I can only run programs as an administrator, and if I click on the file without specifying to run as administrator, it asks me what program I want to use to open it, and ultimately won't work. Running a scan with Malwarebytes will detect the problems, but they keep coming back, at least once a day.

Some of the ones that Malwarebytes keeps finding are Broken.OpenCommand, Hijack.ExeFile, Trojan.Dropper and Spyware.Agent, but there are also others.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this for me!

Answer:HJT help please....overloaded with spyware that keeps coming back!

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run ad-aware SE with VX2 add-on cleaner, Spybot Search & Destroy (with updated database) and CWShredder as these programs will clean a lot of the crap out first. All links to programs are in my signature. Ok..on to the log?..


Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also. Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore.

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Open add/remove programs and remove the following if listed.

INCREDAFIND
Viewpoint
SearchUpgrader

Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be but make sure)

C:\PROGRAM FILES\VIEWPOINT\VIEWPOINT MANAGER\VIEWMGR.EXE

Check and fix the following in HijackThis if they still exist (make sure you do not miss an entry)

A friend of mine who I THOUGHT knew about Adware and Spyware sent me a link. I clicked it, and now I'm infected (I have a link in my AIM profile, that's how I know I'm infected).

Here's where it get's to be a pain in the ***. I use Webroots Spysweeper (Adaware will NOT run on my computer for some stupid reason. I've installed and reinstalled it about half a dozen times, and it just will NOT run). When I run spyweeper, it takes care of everything, but when I restart my computer the f'ing link comes back to my AIM profile. Is there ANYTHING that I can do besides formatting? I just got everything on my computer patched and updated from a recent format, and I don't want to format it again. Please help!!

Answer:SpyWare/Adware Keeps coming back!

Have you tried uninstalling AIM (removing all AIM registry settings and AIM folders), getting rid of the worm with spyweeper and then rebooting? After you reboot, run it again and see if it's back. If not, re-install AIM and you should be good to go.

Hi Project, I've got 4 things for you to do.
Scan your pc with 2 of these free online scanners:
Panda ActiveScan
RAV AntiVirus
Housecall. Be sure to put a check the box beside AutoClean.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download / Install / Update / and Run:
Adaware SE check for any updates before running it.
Get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. You can download it at this SITE
To run this tool, install to the hard drive, then open Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download and install Spybot S&D . Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available. Next click on the 'Check for Problems' button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot. If you keep getting the DSO Exploit entries, even after you updated Windows and fixed them, then download the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix and install it over the current Spybot installation.

Answer:Spyware Guard 98 keeps coming back

It seems that I solved this with a combination of stopping processes, running malwarebytes and running nod32 in safe mode.

Ive always liked cleaning my computer with programs and have never gotten problems removing spyware because I search at google, search at forums and have also have the programs Ewido, SpywareGaurd, CounterSpy, Ad-Aware, SpyBot SD and Spyware Blaster but I dont know why some spyware keep coming back called Trojan.Pakes, Downloader.Small, and a file that adds a BHO called vtsqo.dll which is at the system32 folder. I use Windows XP which is up-to-date and have all my programs updated and I scan at Safe Mode but after a while a popup comes up from Ewido saying im infected with Trojan.Pakes/Downloader.Small and/or Spyware Gaurd comes up saying vtsqo.dll is trying to add a BHO and when I click "Remove the BHO" it just keeps coming back to the same window again so I cant take it off.

Over the past several months when I would run Ad-Aware and ewido every week or every other week I would notice the same results everytime and in ewido they were usually recognised as "Downloaders" with the same kind of .exe names which were usually just random streams of numbers and letters. Every now and then I would have a terrible attack of spyware where, when I would click on certain google links, I would get a page that has nothing at all with what the link address was, just a site full of ads and links with similar keywords to what I was searching for. Now it has happened again, except this time various programs don't work and sites take longer to load. I can't start up AIM, when Ad-Aware, ewido, and the online scanning sites that are on the Before You Post Your HijackThis Log post get 2/4 to 3/4 of the way through they freeze up, as does Disc Cleaner when I right-click on C:\

Although the zlob downloader spyware is permanently gone, there's some other spyware that's still lingering in my PC. I did several scans with spybot and avg programs, but the spyware that triggers an IE window (such as "Error Detected", or windows that give me that sequence of relentless popups when I close them) keeps appearing. They either appear without warning, or trigger upon double-clicking something ("Program Files", the temp IE folder in Local Settings, etc.). Sometimes it would occur when double-clicking a folder that hasn't been opened after the spyware came in. Here's the log

You may also like to save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above. A print out of the instructions would be a good reference to make sure you don't yet lost.Also, it is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and also that you don't miss any steps out!If you have any queries about the process or just general questions, just ask.Step #1I do not recommend that you have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to create "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection.

Hi.
I have read and done the suggestions in the Readme sticky, and while it removes the Spyware, each time I restart my pc and connect to the internet it reappears again.

Ad-aware detects two types. 'DyFuCA' and 'istbar'

When it removes them a message saying
'CrogramFiles\istsvc\istsvc.exe is in use and cannot be removed' and to run ad-aware on start up to remove it.

Microsoft AntiSpyware detects two types called 'IST.ISTbar (browserModifier),
and 'Trojan.Downloader.TargetSavers'

Can someone please help!
 

Answer:Malware/Spyware keep coming back after restart.

If you are using an OS that has System Restore then turn it off > reboot > then follow removal instructions.

If after reboot you are clear of any spyware then turn back on System Restore.

Hello All

I have really tried to find an answer looking at others posts but it seems like each persons problem is unique to their computer.

I never had any spyware problems before so I'm unfamiliar with a lot of programs. I have installed, adaware, spybot, avg antispyware, cleanup, win patrol, AntiVir Guard, and windows defender all because I have read other peoples posts. I know I probably don't need all of this but I didn't know what else to do. Also I am not too familiar with registry edits so I know I need to be careful if I have to change anything.

These are my computer's symptoms:

AntiVirGuard pops up 3 to 13 times saying trojan horses are detected what do I want to do? I usually select delete or block.

Then everything is usually ok until I get on the internet after which my computer redirects the sites I type in to a site called Jack9.com this happens every few minutes. Sometimes I get a bunch of popups in rapid succession and it freezes my computer. I have to restart windows explorer or restart the computer when this happens.

I have run every single previously mentioned program several times during startup and safe mode if possible and while they find things....they must be missing something because the problems continue.

I came across HiJack this and I have the log from the program. I am not completely sure what to do with it or if it can help but any assistance anyone can offer would be greatly appriciated. The log is below:

Hi,

I have recently managed to get a virus/spyware/malware (im afraid my computer knowledge is really useless, I will try my best to be technical) which I first recognised because when I started internet explorer a bunch of pop-ups came up saying I had to download 'Anti-Virus 2009'. It looked similar to a Microsoft notice but it was slightly different in colour and not very detailed so I knew it was a fake, and each time I start Internet Explorer the pop-ups come up again.

At the time I had a SpyBot installed and Semantic anti-virus, the Semantic anti-virus found nothing, the SpyBot found a lot of things (probably not all related to the main issue) all of which I deleted because I didn't know what else to do . But the pop-ups came back the next time I started internet explorer So I ran SpyBot a few more times, each time it found a few more things which I deleted, but kept coming back. The main thing that SpyBot kept finding again was microsoft.windows.securitycentre.firewallbypass and when I gave up with SpyBot the last search also showed a Virtumonde.prx and virtumonde.dll

Running in a panic to my mum she told me I should get the anti virus and spyware that she has, which we get free through our BT Broadband called BT NetProtect Plus, which when I phoned the company they installed for me, and it comes up on my computer as McAfee, although I don't know if it is a complete version of McAfee because it is through BT?

I've been having a a problem with the back left corner hinge since October of last year I poisted to another board about this problem hving been told that this issue would be passed onto support in my region. I'm currious as to weather I'll hear from these people in this lifetime or the next. I enjoy my Laptop and would like to continue using it but as time goes on it keeps seperating more and more and I have to snap it back into place to keep in together. I'm hoping to actually hear back from someone this time that will be able to help me in fixing this issue.

ok. up until yesterday i used Spyware Doctor and Adaware se. (i dont think ive been keeping ad-aware up to date)

i stoped really using adaware the day that ad-aware found only 2-3 minor things while spyware doctor found over 500 infections.
anyway, my computer was fine back then.
lately my computer has been getting teh mega pop-ups. so i downloaded:
Spyware Blaster
Spybot: search and destroy
Microsoft Anti-spyware
i think these new ones worked or something bc i was getting a LOT of pop-ups. today i still got a few...but not nearly as many. (i used to get about 0 pop-ups a day with firefox)
but the proplem is: these scanners will find a problem. then when i remove it, it says "removed successfully" then when i use the scanner again the next day, it finds the spyware AGAIN !!!

EXAMPLE: yesterday ad-aware found and "removed" 13 critical infections. today it found 13 critical infections again. and "removed" them. something tells me that tomarrow, im gunna run ad-aware and its gunna find 13 infections AGAIN.
...and since it say 13 both times, i assume that these are the SAME infections.

spybot found infections again and so did microsoft and spyware doctor.

i downloaded hijack-this, but have no idea how to use it. (well, i know how to run it.) should i run it and post the scan log somewhere? bc i dont know what to do.

In this thread after the starting post from Tookeri other updates that had to be deleted were mentioned. I made a list in post 841
I did not have all these updates on the pc but those that were on it I hid.
Some of them came back and I hid them again.
Now today they are back - with some that I had not seen before.

I made an attachment that shows them and also shows that I hid them again

Will I have to check Windows Update for the rest of my live?????

try manually removing, on www.doxdesk.com there are listings for spyware/parasites.

you could also go to run > msconfig and deselect any programs starting up that you dont recoginse.

also try going to http://www.symantec.com/homecomputing/
at the bottom is a link to a free online virus check, you may have one that persistantly downloads spyware.

and finally ensure you have a firewall and if you have one make sure its up to date. www.download.com has a free copy of zonealarm, thats a good one

It posts a permanent box on my desktop saying infected and keeps popping up at bottom right by time clock saying infected. I will run anti malwarebytes and it will clean it only if i do quick scan. But then i will run full scan and it freezes so i know it is still infected. And sure enough a few days later it is all back. Please help. I also run cc cleaner and norton but norton freezes too.

SuperAnti-Spyware seems to clean everything after i scan and reboot but there are two things that keep coming back on the next re-boot.
1. Pc-cillin keeps giving me a waring telling me to close the browser when its not open with the web address of 110/rjsa/select.php?a=6707a0a cd82d9318fa98c6ee396eed8e61fcf4200553e0c95d8b1d81bbda3c1b&b=1001&c=1
2. There is a sys32 file that gets deleted and always comes back on reboot its MoIXWA40.dll
Pc-Cillin tells me this is a trojan.bho and says its will delete on reboot.
please help me this is so frustrating it slows everything down sooo slow.
 

Answer:Pop-Ups keep coming back

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hello
For many years a succeeded in keeping my computers safe - then, not even a month ago, something surfaced. A Virut thing after I visited an insecure site.
If this can help, a few days before I had for the first time in my pc life installed a downloader program called Flashget-
Well I tried at first to clean up with Spybot and Spyware Doctor (who had not by the way intercepted the hostile item). But the machine had still a strange behaviour so I downloaded some Linux based Rescue CD .iso files (Kaspersky, BitDefender, WebDoctor), burned the CDs and went on scanning without Windows. Those found a wealth of infections by Trojans as well as by the Virut thing, so I kept cleaning and cleaning (desinfecting and/or deleting that is) until nothing more was found.
I then restarted Windows, uninstalled Flashget and installed Avast antivirus. Unfortunately when using my browser I started to get redirected to a "stolnik.net" whatever search I did. Plus Avast began to show infections spreading in the system by a "W32.Vitro" virus. So I tried again with the rescue CDs - Kaspersky found a couple issues but nothing else - and Avast still claiming I have the W32.Vitro everywhere.
At this point I used the VirutCF removal tool by Norton, but to no avail - there is no Virut infection in the machine.
I was beginning to get nervous so I downloaded the Combofix tool, disabled all and every anti-virus and -spyware - as requested - and tried to start Combofix: nothing happens... Read more

Answer:They keep coming back

If you truley have Virut the only real alternative is to do a complete wipe and reinstall. See boopme's post here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...t&p=1260380That will help you determine if you have virut, and if you do, what you need to do.

Answer:they keep coming back!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

Hello sapikest,
my name is Marius and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.
First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.

Before we start, please note:

I think I may have finally scrubbed enough to keep the dll (IeBHOs.dll) from re-appearing, but the E2G folder keeps recreating itself. Any suggestions?

It's a friends system and had Norton on it. I installed NOD32 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor. Then read a few threads and ran HJT a few times and made some deletions that "may" have helped. I know that I managed to get rid of the TrojanDownLoader-AC2 but this E2G is stubborn.

Also ran SpySweeper many times in safe mode and in non-safe mode. Disables Spyware Doctor from auto load with windows as it seemed to be interefering with the Spy Sweeper scan.

Here's the latest HJT log:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Greetings everyone I need some help.

First off... I have followed all the proceedures listed on the READ ME thread that is asked and I STILL AM HAVING ISSUES.

I have Ad-Aware SE and with the VX add.

I have HiJackThis v1.99 and have followed the steps on that thread as well.

Here is the problem:

I run Ad-Aware everytime I log on, and even in safe mode. It finds beween 8 and 60 items. Mostly Malware and DataMiners. Then once I fix those I rescan and it comes up clean. However, I am still getting pop-ups, I have EnhanceMySearch, and when I log off and log back in... and re-run Ad-Aware I still have 8-60 items that show up and the same problem persists.

Can anyone help and point me in the right direction? It is a major annoyance. THANKS TO EVERYONE IN ADVANCE!!
 

Answer:It all just keeps coming back

Make sure you have HijackThis 1.99 and follow the guidelines on where to install it and how to post a log as an attachment. This is all covered in the sticky thread NO HIJACK THIS LOG FILES BEFORE READING THIS: HJT Tutorial & LOG File Posting

Now post a HijackThis log as an attachment to your message (Do not post the log inline). All running programs should be closed, including your web browser, e-mail. Close before running Hijack This!

To repeat: Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file. Place it in its own folder, for example C:\Program Files\HJT

I think I may have finally scrubbed enough to keep the dll (IeBHOs.dll) from re-appearing, but the E2G folder keeps recreating itself. Any suggestions?

It's a friends system and had Norton on it. I installed NOD32 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor. Then read a few threads and ran HJT a few times and made some deletions that "may" have helped. I know that I managed to get rid of the TrojanDownLoader-AC2 but this E2G is stubborn.

Also ran SpySweeper many times in safe mode and in non-safe mode. Disables Spyware Doctor from auto load with windows as it seemed to be interefering with the Spy Sweeper scan.

Question: Keeps coming back!

I thought I wiped it off already but it's back AGAIN! And my SpyBot S&D is missing all sorts of components so it's not working right and it's the only one that has found any. The Microsoft one found one and deleted it but SpyBot found 16 but only deleted 2 before running into problems. EliteBar is back also. Help again!
 

Answer:Keeps coming back!

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT: Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus RemovalMake sure you check version numbers and get all updates.

- Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem:

- Download HijackThis 1.99.1

- Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

- Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file.

- Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

- Run HijackThis and save your log file.

- Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next message. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post).

A couple of weeks ago when I started my computer (Windows XP Pro) a popup appeared, without me going on the internet. In the title bar it said http:// morze . cafreedom . com, and the popup was saying I might have spyware and to click a link to begin scanning - as if I'd click it!Anyway I ran Ad-Aware and it found a few items, but the one that stood out was VX2 and was categorised as MalWare. It couldn't delete the file vgz.dll, so I had to delete it via the command prompt. Doing this closed all Explorer and Internet Explorer windows, which presumably is because it was running/using Explorer. It actually restarted explorer completely, so everything disappeared for a moment.Having got rid of it, I had no problems... until the next time. It keeps coming back, sometimes when I'm logged on, other times when I've restarted... I can't see when it's coming back - just seems random.I haven't been on any dodgy sites, so I can only assume that there's another file other than vgz.dll still on my hard disk somewhere that Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG won't detect.Any ideas?Thanks in advance,Gary

It all started last week when my computer contracted Trojan.Nebuler. My copy of Norton could'nt get rid of it so I downloaded various so called fixes. In the end I had to manually delete the trojan following the instructions on symantics web site - but that was when the fun really began. All sorts of pop up software has been appearing e.g. SysProtect, Drivecleaner and adult sites. Plus the computer has slowed down to a crawl. I have scanned my machine using Norton and AVG and Trend Housecall. And although they find new viruses, and remove them, they keep on coming back. I also downloaded and installed a Registry cleaner - to see if this would speed the thing up a bit, hope i havent deleted anything important (although it says I can recover the lines I have deleted). Can anyone help - here is the hjt log.

BUT, AVG will pop up and say there are infections on my computer. so today, suddenly a bunch of internet popups show up on my laptop and AVG also shows up with a bunch of infections. i'll list some of the trojans that have been detected by AVG.

Everytime I reboot my computer, Downloader keeps coming back.

http://www.symantec.com/security_res...101518-4323-99

I have followed the removal instructions here, and no virus scan is detecting any infected files in safe mode. System restore is disabled until I figure this thing out.

When I check my logs in Norton Antivirus it says one file was automatically deleted, and one file was repaired.

This is the text for the repaired file:

Source: Manual Scanner
Risk category: Virus
Click for more information about this risk : Downloader
Action taken: Repaired
Description: Affected areas:
1 Additional areas:
Unknown - Deleted

It bothers me because I dont know what it is repairing, and I would like to delete that file as well.

All virus scans, spyware scans, everything comes back clean. Then I reboot, open a browser and wham, the file is detected and deleted again.

Here is my HijackThis file.

Answer:Downloader keeps coming back

So, Norton's not telling you exactly what it's repairing, or where whatever it's repairing is located?

Is Norton subscription up to date?

Let's run this small tool and see what we can see.....
Download combofix from one of these locations:http://www.techsupportforum.com/sectools/combofix.exe
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/combofix.exe

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply
Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Hi

I am working on a friends PC which seems to be heavily infected. The symptoms are they are unable to load taskmanger and msconfig as soon as you select them they disappear. CPU usage seems to be extremely high and so it is difficult to run any other programs. Also there seems to be a lot of traffic when they get on the internet.

I have tried the FAQ and running the latest versions of spy bot, stinger, ad-aware, cwshredder they all seemed to find things which then just reappeared. Even though I ran cwshredder first ad-aware still found lots of coolwebsearch stuff which caused it to crash.

I have also cleaned up the system with ccleaner 1.18 and defragmented the hard drive.

The only way I was able to run Hijack this was in safe mode as other wise it would disappear as soon as I had opened it just like taskmanager.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Kind reagrds
