    Hi,

    Recently my internet browsing on my desktop PC has got much slower. My laptop is connected through a wireless connection through my desktop vis ICS and it is still lightning fast.

    I'm not sure what is going on, so could somebody who knows please take a look at my log and let me know if there is anything there that could be responsible.

    I'm running XP media Center Edition SP2.

    Many thanks.

    Welcome to TSG :)

    You are infected with a IRC bot trojan. Let get started with the removal.

    You are running an old/beta version of Hijackthis, please delete Hijackthis.exe from your Desktop.


    Please download HJTInstaller.exe Here
    Let it Place Hijackthis in C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Hijackthis
    Let it create a Desktop Icon
    Open Hijackthis.exe
    Click on Do a System Scan and Save log file
    Don't Fix any Items!!!
    Just copy and paste the contents of the log file to your reply.

    Please wait till after you have run SDFix and ComboFix before you post the log. Thanks

    ======================================

    Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

    Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
    (Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

    Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
    • Restart your computer
    • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
    • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
    • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
    • Choose your usual account.
    • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
    • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
    • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
    • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
    • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
    • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
      (Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
    • Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log


    ===================================


    Download Combofix and save it to your desktop.

    **Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

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

    1. Close any open browsers.

    2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

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

    Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

    Hi sjpritch25,

    Many thanks for your prompt reply, it's much appreciated.

    Ok, I have followed your instructions, which you can see the log files below. However, when running SDFix (which I ran twice to confirm), when it came to write the log file it told me that the specified path could not be found (?). I have installed it in C;SDFix as per instruction, but the log file it did produce seems small. The same applied to Combofix, however it did display a log file. I hope this is the correct file.

    Theses are the log files:

    Hi,

    It is better, much better thanks. I have installed Adware SE 2007 over the weekend which cleaned up some areas as well, so all is looking good so far. I can't tell for certain as my ISP have (helpfully) decided to carry out some work on my line over the last couple of days, so broadband has been pretty erratic, but when I'm on it does appear to be back to normal.

    Many thanks for your help in this matter.

    Your Welcome!!!! (y)

    Now that your system is clean you should SET A NEW RESTORE POINT to prevent future reinfection from the old restore point AFTER cleaning your system of any malware infection. Any trojans or spyware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore and are waiting to re-infect you. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete files, trapping viruses inside. Setting a new restore point should be done to prevent any future reinfection from the old restore point and enable your computer to "roll-back" in case there is a future problem.

    To SET A NEW RESTORE POINT:
    1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
    2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
    3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
    4. Click "OK".
    5. Click the "More Options" Tab.
    6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

    Graphics for doing this are in the following links if you need them.
    How to Create a Restore Point.
    How to use Cleanmgr.

    ======================================

    Here is some useful information on keeping your computer clean:
    1. Most important thing is to make sure Windows is kept up to date with the latest patches and updates from Windows Update.
    2. Here are two great Preventive programs:
      • SpywareBlaster protects you from malicious ActiveX controls and cookies. Make sure and check for updates twice a month.
      • IESpyads adds a long list of bad sites to your Restricted sites in Internet Explorer and protects against drive by downloads.
    3. Surf Safe with McAfee's SiteAdisor. SiteAdisor will work with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. SiteAdisor is a browser plugin that assigns a safety rating to domains listed in your search engine. SiteAdvisor uses the following color codes to indicate the safety level of each site.
      • Red for Warning
      • Yellow for Use Caution
      • Green for Safe
      • Grey for Unknown

      Here are the link to install SiteAdisor in Internet Explorer and Firefox
    4. Anti-Spyware Programs I Recommend:
      • Free Anti-Spyware Programs
      • Great Subscription Anti-Spyware Programs
    5. For Even More Information On Securing Your Computer read Tony Klein's So How Did I Get Infected In The First Place

    Hi Sjpritch25,

    Many thanks for your help and advice on this issue. However, last night it all srated slowing down again and this morning it is as slow as ever. I have only installed Adware SE 2007 and error killer (purchased together) and have taken a new hijackthis log. Could you please take a look and see if anything has got in since? I haven't run sdfix or combofix since the 'new' slow down last night as I thought I'd probably be better asking your advice first before I did anything that might make anything worse. Many thanks again.

    Here is my latest log file from this morning:

    Looks like you have some leftover symantec stuff. I assume you want to stick with AVG???

    Open Hijackthis, Click Open the Misc tools section Then click the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
    The Add/Remove Programs Manager panel should appear.
    In this panel click the Save list button.
    Save the uninstall_list.txt file to your desktop and copy and paste the contents back in your next reply.

    Yes I do want to stick with AVG, as Norton slowed my computer down too much (yup, I know that sounds incredible with my current problems!!!).

    I have noticed some symantec entries in my Hijackthis log, but have left well alone without instruction. Are they safe to remove?

    Here is my log as requested.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Just thought I'd give you a quick update so that I don't take any more of your valuable time.

    When you mentioned in your last post that there was some symantec stuff left over I went and did a bit of research and removed every instance I could find (including from the registry). This took a long time to do, and involved many restarts, coffee and hair pulling (I will never install another Norton product ever again)! So far this appears to have done the job. Browsing now is at worst, a little sluggish sometimes, but certainly nothing I can't put up with.

    As you probably guessed from my log I work in web development, so the connection was having a real impact on my work.

    But now, thanks to your help all is well again.

    I certainly couldn't have done this without your help, so a huge thank you for helping me resolve this annoying problem.

    Cheers. :)

    Well, i agree about Symantec's software as it really bloats a machine. I have been really busy lately, so sorry for the delay. But Symantec does at least have a removal tool. Anyways, could you post another fresh Hijackthis log.

    No problem in the delay at all. I did ude the removal tool, but it still took me a long time to remove bits that the removal tool missed.

    The computer is still working like new, so all is good this end, but please see a fresh log I have takes as requested:

    Your log is clean!!

    Please go to Start---> Run---> In the space provided, type ComboFix /u. This command will remove combofix and its components.

    Now that your system is clean you should SET A NEW RESTORE POINT to prevent future reinfection from the old restore point AFTER cleaning your system of any malware infection. Any trojans or spyware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore and are waiting to re-infect you. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete files, trapping viruses inside. Setting a new restore point should be done to prevent any future reinfection from the old restore point and enable your computer to "roll-back" in case there is a future problem.

    To SET A NEW RESTORE POINT:
    1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
    2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
    3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
    4. Click "OK".
    5. Click the "More Options" Tab.
    6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

    Graphics for doing this are in the following links if you need them.
    How to Create a Restore Point.
    How to use Cleanmgr.

    ======================================

    Here is some useful information on keeping your computer clean:
    1. Most important thing is to make sure Windows is kept up to date with the latest patches and updates from Windows Update.
    2. Here are two great Preventive programs:
