    Please help.....


    I have been infected with the SPYSTRIKE virus. I successfully went into the registry and took out all the registry values i have found in other posts related to this virus. I am no longer plagued with the annoying popups but i keep getting a virus alert for GDNUS2218.exe in the temporary internet files. I have allowed AVG anti-virus program to delete this file but it only returns. I have went into the folder and manually removed it, but it still comes back.

    Also, my internet explorer home page has been hijacked and no matter what i set my homepage to it redirects me to a website called uptodatesecurity. com.

    I just completed running EWIDO in safe mode. Here is the log.

    Welcome to TSG :)

    * Click here to download smitRem.exe.
    • Save the file to your desktop.
    • It is a self extracting file.
    • Doubleclick the smitRem.exe and it will extract the files to a smitRem folder on your desktop.
    • Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in safe mode.

    * Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know how.


    * Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You will need them to refer to in safe mode.


    * Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


    * Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
    Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


    * Run Ewido:
    • Click on scanner
    • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    • During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
    • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
    • Save the report to your desktop


    * Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


    * Next 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 info" or similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.


    * Restart back into Windows normally now.


    * Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

    When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
    - Save the results from the scan!

    Post a new HiJack This log along with the results from ActiveScan and the Ewido scan and post the contents of the smitfiles.txt.

    You're welcome :)

    Hijack This is running from the Temp folder.
    It needs to be in a permanent folder on the hard drive.
    It will not function properly from there and it cannot create and restore backups from there.

    Redownload it here: http://thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

    Let it extract to C:\Program Files

    Rescan with Hijack This from its new location.
    Close all browser windows except Hijack This.
    Put a check mark beside these entries and click "Fix Checked".

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = about:blank

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = \blank.htm

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

    O1 - Hosts: 216.19.0.250 idenupdate.motorola.com

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Information Update] C:\Program Files\Information Update\iu.exe


    Boot into Safe Mode.

    Find and delete this folder: C:\Program Files\Information Update

    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.

    It's normal if some files don't delete!

    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.

    Reboot, post a new log.
