    When I start my computer I recieve a messege stating C:\WINDOWS\bxxs5.dll cannot be found? I also have been unable to open my windows media player, I'm assuming the 2 problems are related.

    Please help. (I'm using Windows XP)

    I ran my Norton Anti-Virus and it detected alot of "adware" files. From what I understand adware is a hacking resource, they are currently quarantined, but if I do not need anything that is adware I would rather remove them completely.Would any of these be beneficial or should I delete them all?

    You should delete them all.

    Please download 'Hijack This!'. http://spywarewarrior.com/files/HijackThis.exe
    Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Save the log, and copy its contents here(might need more than one post). Most of what it lists will be harmless or essential, don't fix anything yet.

    Hi Welcome to TSG! :)

    Please do the following:

    Go to Add/Rermove programs and uninstall any of the following programs that are there:

    P2P Networking
    Winad Client
    BullsEye Network
    AltnetPointsManager or Altnet
    Kazaa (if you still have it)
    Bargain Buddy
    Web Rebates
    MyDailyHoroscope


    Restart your computer after each uninstall.


    Go here and download Adaware 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.


    Finally rescan with Hijack This and post a new log.

    Also Click here to download getservice.zip and unzip it to your desktop. Open the Getservice folder and click on the getservices.bat file. A notepad will open up with a long list of Services. Please save that notepad file and attach it to your next reply to this thread. It will be easier to attach it rather than copy and paste because it will be too long to paste in one post.

    After you post the next Hijack This log and the getservice list, it is very important that you not restart your computer or attempt to do anything to remove this until I have posted the removal directions because the files and the entries in HJT will change and we will have to start all over again. It would be best that you do nothing at all with the computer until you get the directions.

    Before we do anything else you need to unzip (extract) Hijack This and move it to a permanent folder. It will not function properly when run from the zip folder or the Temp folder.

    You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Right click on the HijackThis.zip file and choose "Extract all" and extract it to the Hijack This folder you created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

    DO NOT proceed with the rest of these directions until you have unzipped and moved HJT to the new permanent folder.
    _________________________________________________________________________

    Now Click here to download cwsserviceremove.zip and unzip it to your desktop and have it ready to run later.
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Click here to download CWShredder. Do Not run it yet. Download it to the desktop and have it ready to run later.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    Click here to download AboutBuster created by Rubber Ducky.

    Unzip AboutBuster to the Desktop then click the "Update Button" then click "Check for Update" and download the updates and then click "Exit" because I don't want you to run it yet. Just get the updates so it is ready to run later in safe mode.
    _____________________________________________________________________

    Now go ahead and set your computer to show hidden files like so:

    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"
    ______________________________________________________________________

    Sign off the internet and remain offline until this procedure is complete. Unplug your modem or disconnect the cable or phone line. Copy these instructions to notepad and save them on your desktop for easy access. You must follow these directions exactly and you cannot skip any part of it.
    ______________________________________________________________________


    Click Start > Run > and type in:

    services.msc

    Click OK.

    In the services window find Network Security Service (NSS).
    Rightclick 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.
    ______________________________________________________________________
    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode


    Perform the following steps in safe mode:

    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.
    Restart your computer.



    Go here and do an online virus scan.

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself. Housecall will detect the leftover files from this hijacker.



    This hijacker is known to alter or delete certain files so check this out please:

    Download the Hoster from here . UnZip the file and press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.

    If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file.
    Go here and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing your Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

    Check in the C:\Windows\system32 folder to be sure you have a file named Shell.dll. If you do not have one, go to the C:\Windows\system32\dllcache folder.
    Find shell.dll and right click on it. Choose Copy from the menu.
    Open the System32 folder and right click on an empty space in the window. Choose Paste from the menu.


    control.exe may have been deleted.
    See if control.exe is present in C:\windows\system32

    If control.exe isn't there, go here, and download control.exe per the instructions at the site.

    IMPORTANT!: Please check your ActiveX security settings. They may have been changed by this CWS variant to allow ALL ActiveX!! If they have been changed, reset your active x security settings in IE as recommended here.



    When you are sure you are clean turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

    To create a restore point:

    Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
    Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
    In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
    Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.
