    Hi, Wiplash

    Welcome.

    Download WinPFind3U.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.
    1. Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.
      • In the Processes group click Non Microsoft
      • In the Win32 Services group click Non Microsoft
      • In the Driver Services group click Non Microsoft
      • In the Registry group click Non Microsoft
      • In the Files Created Within group click 60 days Make sure Non-Microsoft only is UNCHECKED
      • In the Files Modified Within group select 30 days Make sure Non-Microsoft only is UNCHECKED
      • In the File String Search group select Non Microsoft
      • In the Additional scans sections please press select All and uncheck non-microsoft only
    2. Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
    3. The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
    4. When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
    5. Save that notepad file
    Use the Reply button and attach the notepad file here (Do not copy and paste in a reply, rather attach it to it).

    Hi there,

    Here is the scan log from WinPFind3U .. I had to zip the file because the text file alone was too big.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi, Wiplash :)

    Start WinPFind3U. Copy/Paste the information in the Quotebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.


    Code:
    [Kill Explorer]
    [Unregister Dlls]
    [Processes - Non-Microsoft Only]
    YY -> oowypw.exe -> %System32%\oowypw.exe
    [Registry - Non-Microsoft Only]
    < Run [HKLM] > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    YY -> Microsoft Update Machine -> %System32%\oowypw.exe
    < RunServices [HKLM] > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
    YY -> Microsoft Update Machine -> %System32%\oowypw.exe
    [Registry - Additional Scans - All]
    < Disabled MSConfig Registry Items [HKLM] > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg\
    YY -> Microsoft Update Machine -> %System32%\oowypw.exe
    [Files/Folders - Created Within 60 days]
    NY -> 0.log -> %SystemRoot%\0.log
    NY -> xpsp1hfm.log -> %SystemRoot%\xpsp1hfm.log
    [Empty Temp Folders]
    [Start Explorer]
    [Reboot]
    

    The fix should only take a very short time. When the fix is completed a message box will popup telling you that it is finished. CLick the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix. Post that information back here .

    I will review the information when it comes back in.

    Download Superantispyware (SAS)
    1. Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
    2. It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
    3. Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
    4. Click the Scanning Control tab.
    5. Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
      • Close browsers before scanning
      • Scan for tracking cookies
      • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
      • Please leave the others unchecked.
      • Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
    6. On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
    7. On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
    8. On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
    9. Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
    10. After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
    11. Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
    12. It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
    13. To retrieve the removal information, please do the following:
      • After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
      • Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
      • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
      • It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
      • Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
    14. Click close and close again to exit the program.
    15. Please paste that information in your next reply.
    Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
    • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
    • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
    • Enter your Country
    • Enter your State/Province
    • Enter your e-mail address and click send
    • Select either Home User or Company
    • Click the big Scan Now button
    • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
    • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
    • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
    • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
    Post the ActiveScan report in your next reply along with a new Hijackthis log.

    Also let me know of any problems you encountered performing the steps above or any continuing problems you are still having with the computer.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for fixing my pc .. all seems fine now. I had to clear off 200 odd tracking cookies too.

    Seems a lot of people are now having this problem.

    cheers

    Hi, Wiplash. :)

    Congratulations.[​IMG]

    Since the tools we used to scan the computer, as well as tools to delete files and folders, are no longer needed, they should be removed, as well as the folders created by these tools.

    Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programmes changing them. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)

    To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

    (Windows XP)

    1. Turn off System Restore.
    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.

    2. Reboot.

    3. Turn ON System Restore.

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
    Click Apply, and then click OK..

    Create a Restore point:
    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
    2. In the System Restore dialog box, click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
    3. Type a description for your restore point, such as "After Cleanup", then click Create.

    The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
    1. Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
    2. AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
    3. SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
    4. 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.
    5. CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
    6. Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
    7. Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
    8. Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)

    To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein.
