At least once when I run Internet Explorer, I get this Aurora pop that starts up with the browser. I've done everything I can to get rid of it but no luck.
I run MicrosoftAntispyware, Adaware and Spybot. The only thing I get (In Adaware) says that my Windows Shell Nail.exe may be corrupted.
I have attatched a Hi-Jack this log file,please help.

Hi and welcome to TSG,

You will need to disable Spybot's Tea Timer (via msconfig) while fixing this as it may block the fixes.

Click Start > Run > and type in:

services.msc


Click OK.

In the services window find System Startup Service (SvcProc).
Right click and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then OK. Exit the Services utility.

Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start - Search and under "More advanced search options". Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. 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 "Hide extensions for known file types". Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Download the new version of Killbox from here:

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.exe

Unzip the file to the folder of your choice.

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Delete on Reboot. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste the following line then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle. It will ask for confimation to delete the file on next reboot. Click Yes. It will then ask if you want to reboot now. Click No.

C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Do the process for this file and then answer yes to reboot.

C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe

Post a new Hijack This log please.

Hello...
First off, thanks for the reply, very much appreciated.
I did everything just as you said, re ran Hijack this and
as you can see, c:\windows\Nail.exe still comes up.
What next?

go to start/run and type cmd press ok

when it opens type cd\ press return and then when you see the C: prompt type cd/windows press return
then type nail.exe /FullRemove press return

make sure that there is a space between nail.exe and the /

then reboot & post a new hjt log & we can see if it's gone

Download AdAware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download and install it if you haven't already got it. If you have it, then make sure it is updated and configured as described later in this post

Download pocket killbox from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe & put it on the desktop where you can find it easily

run killbox and paste The FIRST ONE of these lines into the box, select delete on reboot then press the red X button,say yes to the prompt but no to reboot now

then continue to paste the lines in in turn and follow the above procedure every time, If it says file is missing, or if it says unable to delete then make a note of the file name and let us know when you reply
c:\windows\system32\gataym.exe
C:\WINDOWS\KIUZHM.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\System32\A95KFRHE.INI
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ABASA5~1.INI
C:\WINDOWS\System32\AP9H4QMO.INI
C:\WINDOWS\System32\HOCHKA~1.INI
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Q17I9A4J.INI
C:\WINDOWS\System32\U6F6UF~1.INI
C:\WINDOWS\System32\NSC8.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\UWKMIJ~1.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\System32\bingo_big2.ico

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Fil.ico

C:\WINDOWS\System32\vh e2331.ico
C:\WINDOWS\System32\virushunter1231.ico

Then on killbox top bar press tools and then empty temp files and follow those prompts and say yes to everything

Reboot now and when it reboots

Run hijackthis, put a tick in the box beside 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

O2 - BHO: ohb - {999A06FF-10EF-4A29-8640-69E99882C26B} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\nsc8.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mmsczlr] c:\windows\system32\gataym.exe

now
then as some of the 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"

then go to C:\windows\temp and select EVERYTHING and delete it all and then do the same for C:\temp

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

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 SE1R39 15.04.2005 or a higher number/later date

Set up the Configurations as follows:

General Button
Safety:
Check (Green) all three.

Click on "Proceed"

Please deselect "Search for negligible risk entries", as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.

Click on "Scan Now"

Run the scanner using the Full Scan (Perform full system scan) mode.

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 &

Download and install the Micro$oft antispyware BETA from http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx and let it fix anything it finds

First press file and check for updates and then run it

Recent tests suggest that a combination of Adaware & M$AS removes approx 80% of spywares/Adwares, much higher than any other combination

Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites

http://www.kaspersky.com/beta?product=161744315 ( with this one as it's abeta product, they ask for a name & email, just put any email in and any name and company it isn't checked on and they have just used the standard beta page as a doorway to it )
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/

I don't mean to butt into your problem, but I believe I have a very simple solution for you. I had Aurora for weeks now and have been dealing with another forum to help me and nothing was working. Essentially I'm in the same boat you're in!! Anyway, after almost putting my fist through the monitor at the 200th picture of "who's body is this??" I researched where Aurora comes from. Answer: Direct Revenue LLC. AKA Offeroptimizer, Abetterinternet.com and on and on. Anyway I actually got a response and it reads...

Thank you for contacting Mypctuneup support! We apologize for the delayed response to your email, and thank you for your patience.

I took a chance and downloaded the uninstaller, rebooted and POOF, no more Aurora!! I ran HJT and everything is gone. The crazy unknown exe that renames itself, nail.exe, SvcProc, all gone!! Let me know if it works for you as well.

Sincerely, Tim

Not a problem, I hope there's a way to get this out to everyone that has been affected, because Direct Revenue isn't sharing the fix openly, although being sued in several lawsuits in Illinois!! :)

hi calrodeo,
I read your thread with interest. I too have the aurora malware. I followed your link to download the fix but have been unable to find the image referred to for download. Is it at all possible for you to attach the executable in an email for me? I would really appreciate it.

The link is no longer active. Nail.exe gets my award for the most abnoxious malicious app yet. If you still have the uninstaller can you email it to me? krisaustinse at hotmail. Thanks.

Well I looked it up myself and yup, you're right. mypctuneup is no longer active. I wish I could say I had the uninstaller still, but in my diligence to clean my system completely, I removed the temp files with cccleaner and it's gone. I'm keeping an eye out and sent a new email to [email protected]. I'll let you know if I get a response.
