Hi,
I installed a WiFi at home and my notebook got totally scrambled by at least
two programs: 1) SpyWare Stormer 2) Error Guard. I tried cleaning it up with Ad-Aware and Spybot, also by SpyCleaner, but nothing helps. Please help!

go to here and download 'Hijack This!'.
First make a folder on your computer in my documents called Hijackthis and then Unzip it to that folder.
Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Click here to download CWSinstall.exe. Click on the CWSinstall.exe file and it will install CWShredder. Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.



Go here and download Ad-Aware SE.

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the 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 and click Next)

Restart your computer.



Then go here and download Spybot Search & Destroy.

Install the program and launch it.

Before scanning press Online and Search for Updates .

Put a check mark at and install all updates.

Click Check for Problems and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds marked in RED.

Restart your computer.

Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.

Last night I ran CWShredder, The Ad-Adware SE, the Spybot S&D, and then hijackthis, the
logfile of which is listed after this message.

I got the following message from CWShredder:
"The following file could be part of CWS.Control.4 which uses random filenames.
If the file displayed below has a filename that looks like a random string of
characters, it should be deleted. CWShredder cannot determine it for you.
If you are not sure, write down the filename, click "No" and ask someone for help,
or post on the SpywareInfo forums.
Is the filename random? C:\WINDOWS\conscorr.exe"
I answered "No" and the file is still there.
In the end of all this I thought there was noticable improvement: everything
ran faster, the parasitic "spy detection" software still kept popping up right
after rebooting, but was less persistent and once clicked off stayed off.
But Windows Explorer still does not work. And then the computer started to reboot
on its own: first, there would be a flash of some blue screen with white letters on
it, then the machine would reboot. It happened several times at different stages in
the session. Once I got a Microsoft window with a message:

"The system has recovered from a serious error. A log of this error has been created.
Error signature:

BCCode:1000008e BCP1: C0000005 BCP2: 000001EE BCP3: F65D2CC8 BCP4: 00000000

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

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"

Now find and delete these files:

C:\Documents and Settings\Alex\Application Data\acao.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\twink64.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Fqd.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\vr9uu.exe

Delete these folders:

C:\Program Files\Windows AdControl
C:\Program Files\Spyware Stormer
C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch

Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


Empty the Recycle Bin


IMPORTANT!: I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs" except for Service Pack 2 ASAP!. This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows. Many baddies get on your machine by taking advantage of these vulnerabilities. As your machine stands now it is wide open to attack from all sorts of nasties. You need to get these updates IMMEDITELY!

Note: At this time I cannot and do not recommend that you install Service Pack 2 until you have read the info at the following links and are sure that it will not cause problems with your system:

After I have done everything you instructed me to do things look much better.
But there is still a remnant of spyware activities that didn't go away:
I have 2 users set up, on my side it seems to be fine, all functions restored, but when I switch users and go to my wife's session, I see her desktop with black background (no original wallpaper), all icons highlighted and in the center of the desktop a lage window, announcing: "Warnihg! You are in danger ... etc."

Also, my internet access is gone on both my desktop and notebook computers, but since only my notebook was affected by this spyware problem
the Internet problem must be unrelated. Or is it?

On your Wife's account go to Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab then click the "Customize Desktop" button. Click on the "Web" tab. Under "Web Pages" you should see an entry checked called something like "Security" or similar. Select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.

Also log in to her account and run Hijack This and post the log from her account.

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

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"

Now find and delete these files:

C:\Documents and Settings\Eida\Application Data\acao.exe
C:\WINDOWS\Ofc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Ubk.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\explorer32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\?hkdsk.exe ----> This is not a typo. The actual file name is ?hkdsk.exe. DO NOT delete chkdsk.exe.

Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


Empty the Recycle Bin


Click here to download CWSinstall.exe. Click on the CWSinstall.exe file and it will install CWShredder. Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.



Go here and download Ad-Aware SE.

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the 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 and click Next)

Restart your computer.

Hi:
I have a machine running Windows XP that somehow got Spyware Stormer installed. I would like to remove it. Can anyone suggest how to go about doing it?
I have Ad-aware and Spybot search & destory installed which I use from time to time. I do not like and do not want Spyware stormer.

I am attaching my hijack this log below. I would appreciate it if someone can give me suggestions on how to proceed.

I also have (what might be) an unrelated question. My computer no longer seems to want to connect through a router/firewall. I can use DHCP and get an IP address and get on the internet when I directly connect to the cable modem. But if I go through the router, DHCP refuses to assign an IP address. I've tried IPCONfig/renew and release, but it gives me a message that access is denied. From what I understand this has to do with a corrupt winsock registry. I saw some suggestions online on how to fix it, but it has not helped. If there is anything in my "hijackthis" log that can help fix this I would really appreciate it

Thanks
-Suresh
