I think my computer is infected with the ADS234 spyware. I have ran AdAware with the latest reference file, Mcafee Virus scan with the latest DAT file and I still can't get rid of it.

This is the system Specification
Pentium III 866 Mhz
256 MB RAM
Windows 2000 SP4

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank You,

This the HijackThis log file

First run this uninstaller to get rid of the peper.a trojan:

http://www.zerosrealm.com/downloads/uninst.exe

*Note: Just click on the uninst.exe and let it run. When it is finished it will just close. There will be no dialogue. Also you must be connected to the internet for the uninstaller to be effective.

Restart your computer.


Run CWShredder.

CWShredder download link

Under "Official Downloads" download "CWShredder".

Unzip the program to a permanent folder of your choosing. Close ALL (except CWShredder ;) )browser windows and click "FIX".

After it's done running click on "How do I prevent re-infection?" and, at a minimum, click on "Go Download the ByteVerifier patch on Microsoft.com"

If you have problems running CWShredder, then get the SmartKiller removal tool on this page:

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html

Re-start your computer



Download and save these freeware/donationware programs to a permanent folder. Remember to check for updates and run them weekly.

***NOTE***A new version of SpyBot's been released (v1.3...it's no longer in beta). If you have been using 1.2 you can install right over it. If you downloaded and used 1.3 beta it is suggested you remove it and reboot prior to installing.


Ad-aware SE download

Configure Ad-aware:

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 the main window, click Start then under "Select a scan Mode select "Perform full system scan.

Next deselect "Search for negligible risk entries.

Click the "Next" button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get delete the selections. (Right-click within the window and choose "Select All" from the drop down menu and click Next)

Restart your computer.


SpyBot Search and Destroy download

I also highly recommend you install and update SpywareBlaster


Tutorials:

Ad-aware tutorial link

SpyBot 1.3 tutorial link

SpywareBlaster tutorial link

Run Ad-aware and Spybot in Safe Mode.

Then Download Adaware SE http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
The first step is updating your Ad-Aware SE. You can do this by going to the bottom right corner and clicking on the link that says "Check for Updates Now".
Press "Continue" on the bottom right on your screen
Next another pop-up will pop-up saying what type of update it is and what to do, press "Okay" and a download screen will come up downloading the update. Press "Finish" after the update is downloaded. Now select "Finish" then on the bvottom right of your Adaware screen click "Start".
A new screen will pop-up and will say "Select a scan mode". You want to click "Use Custom Scanning Mode". Before you press "Start" on the bottom right click "Customize" right next to "Use Custom Scanning Mode".

Select the following:

In the General tab select:
Keep it all the same

In the Scanning tab select:
Under Drivers Folders and Files-select Scan within archives
Under Memory and Registry select all that is underneath it!
Make sure your harddrive is selected when you press "Select Drives and Folders to scan"

In the Advanced tab select:
Make sure you have everything under the "Logfile Detail Level" selected.
(This makes it easier for people from Lavasoft forums see what options you have selected)

In the Startup, Defaults, and Interface tab select nothing.


In the Tweak tab select:
You may not be able to select certain things in the tweak tab, but do not be alarmed.
Under scanning engine select:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning"
"Scan registry for all users instead of current users only"
Under Cleaning Engine select:
"Always try to unload modules before deletion"
"During removal unload Explorer and IE if necessary"
"Let Windows remove files in use at next boot"
"Delete Quarantined objects after restoring"
Under log files:
"Include Basic Ad-Aware settings in log file"
