I think my IE has been hijacked. I get bombarded by popups and start pages I didn't want, and toolbars that pop up out of nowhere. Here's my hijack this log....I'd appreciate any help I can get! Thanks

Have you tried Spybot search and destroy? There's alot of things in there that could be spyware related, but then again,maybe not. Unfortuantely for us these spyware apps. are not usually called MySpyware.exe. It would make it soooo easy if they were all like that. Spybot S&D has like a database of thousands of spy/adware related files and registry keys. So, it scans your system, compares everything to its' database and then let's you know. Simple and it works. Just remember, if you downloaded a cool toolbar or button or whatever that you like, it may be listed in S&Ds' database.

Delete: C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp

( the entire folder)

Delete all temporary download files

I would delete all of these:

Make a backup first

Hi, You have several problems that will not be fixed by running Spybot or AdAware or probably not only by fixing with Hijack this.

There is a "Thread Tools" button at the top of each page> you can print these instructions without the pics and stuff by hitting that button and selecting "Printable Version" :) hmmm sounds like we are swearing! :D

Although it does not show in your HJT log, you may have now or have used Messenger Plus 3!, if so, it is the cause of your Lop.com problem and you must uninstall it> if you already have, good.

Check also:: in Add/Remove Programs, uninstall this:
dlsmgr.exe (dls manager maybe)
MaxSpeed (or similar)
Uninstall Wintools Easy Installer (whatever has the word "WinTools" there). No problem if it is not there.
It may prompt for a reboot. Do so.

BACK ONLINE:
Go Here:
http://lop.com/new_uninstall.exe

Please download the LOP uninstaller and close all other programs and run it. (offline)
Let me know if you cannot reach that site. I can send the file to your email.


Next: Go here and run the Peper fixers:

http://downloads.subratam.org/Newuninst.exe

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/uninst.exe

NOTE: for this uninstaller to work you must > use it Online, just have one Internet Explorer page open for instance.

((Be sure you have an internet connection active and allow firewall access if you need to.))

Run it once online
Reboot
Run it again online...

There will not be anything you can see- that is normal, and the uninstaller DID what it had to do> Peper can be stubborn, and it sometimes takes another run through...be patient, and at the end of this session of fixing I will have you send a new HJT log in, and see if one uninstall took care of Peper, OK?

Reboot, but this time we go into Safe Mode> if you know how, good, or: tap the F8 key when the computer first starts up, when the menu comes up, select Safe Mode using the down arrow key, give it plenty of time to reach safe mode< when there,

ctrl-alt-del to bring up the Task Manager, and End Task the wintools processes (WToolsA.exe, WToolsS.exe if they show) You should wait a minute, and see if the next End Task box comes up > if not, End Task on those WinTools processes again. When they have shut down if you had to End Task those...be sure you see that they are shut down if were found running. NEXT:


Make sure you check and/or set the following settings for WINDOWS Explorer:

flrman1 said:
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"

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.

Next navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\Local Settings\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.
Empty the Recycle Bin, give it plenty of time to finish.

Start Hijack this again:

Fix all the following entries, IF THEY ARE THERE, by putting a check into the box at the left of each entry in this list:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\eggs grim okay tray\online debug.exe <--file


Folders: Find and delete the entire
WinTools folder.
C:\Program Files\TV Media <this folder
Any MaxSpeed folder you see

Then please send a new HJT log. There will by some more to! I realize this is quite a bit to do, but do them, and try to not skip any steps.

Thanks. I did what you suggested, however the link http://www.downloads.subratam.org/uninst.exe
does not work and I did not find some of the files you told me to remove. Here is my new hjt log:

Hi, You are doing well- have gotten rid of a lot, but
it looks like you made your last HJT log in Safe Mode, is the computer going to normal mode? And getting online OK?
You dont need to make HJT logs each time in Safe Mode...

Sorry about the bad link.

Please try this Peper uninstaller:

http://downloads.subratam.org/PeperFix.exe

Remember to have your Internet connection active, be online in other words...when you run it. Then Reboot. Run the PeperFix.exe again, when you are online....

Then download this to fix the HOSTS file:

Download the Hoster from here:
http://members.aol.com/toadbee/hoster.zip

Unzip the files to a folder you can find, not the temp folder though, and install the program and run it.
Press *Restore Original Hosts* and press OK*


NEXT:

Did you download and update AdAware yet, and run it?
A lot less would be showing if I am pretty sure if you had--

remember to use AAw's update feature for reference file updates before you run the scan.


It will remove one of the other hijackers you have and probably quite a bit of other bad items.

The AdAware Se personal download and directions are in my reply back a couple of posts.
Scan and let AAW remove all it finds, then submit a new HJT log. If for any reason you cannot get AdAware to complete, download etc:


I see you posted while I was please follow the rest in my next reply... (y)

Doing very well!

Sorry, your post wasn't clear as to whether I should run the HJT in safe mode or not....anyway, I did update AdAware and ran it, I also ran Registry Mechanic and the Peper fix. Here's the HJT log after doing all that:

Hi, Looks much better but still a few things to fix.

Download the Hoster from here:
http://members.aol.com/toadbee/hoster.zip

Unzip the files to a folder you can find, not the temp folder though, and install the program (Hoster.exe) and run it.
Press *Restore Original Hosts* and press OK*

Run Hijackthis.exe again, no other windows open, No Internet Explorer open, and fix all these items:

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\jxG6.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe

In Windows Explorer, find and delete these files as you have been doing>


C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\jxG6.exe <--files at the end of each line

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\jxG6.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\SearchBar.htm

C:\Documents and Settings\Cyndi\Local Settings\Temp\KTSa.dll <----down to here


CTRL+ALT+DEL if this is running Process/Task End Process/Task on it:

dpmxext.exe

And, find it and delete it it should be in the folder:
C:\Windows\System32


Don't worry if you can't find it or any of those files.

Run through the temp and Temp Internet files deletion again.

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Start AdAware, check for updates as usual, scan and let it remove all it finds.

Post a new HJT log.

Hi, Fixing the kids machine is Ok with me! :)


Still see those stubborn items that refuse to be deleted!

Do all this in Normal mode (regular Windows)

Run HJT again, no other windows open: fix these:
If they show twice in log, get both entries...

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\N3.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\jxG6.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\N3.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\jxG6.exe

O2 - BHO: Search Help - {E8EAEB34-F7B5-4C55-87FF-720FAF53D841} - C:\Documents and Settings\Cyndi\Local Settings\Temp\egh.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [N3] C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\N3.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [N3.exe] C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\N3.exe


Now in Windows Explorer> delete all the files at end of line as before:

C:\Documents and Settings\Cyndi\Local Settings\Temp\egh.dll---> this one MAY give you an "in use by Windows" or similar message...you will have to wait and go to Safe Mode after the last step and delete it.

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\N3.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\jxG6.exe

C:\documents and settings\cyndi\local settings\temp\rfsmnNK.exe


Empty the Recycle Bin, Reboot, and post a new HJT log after you run HJT again.

Okay, this time a lot of the things you asked me to delete weren't there...but I deleted all the ones I did find. Here's the new log:

Clean! :)
Now, if you have not done it already> you must disable System Restore, which is done to remove all the infected Restore Points. They would simply reinstall all the junk you just got rid of; here is how to do it:

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001111912274039?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam

Use the winXP directions. You are going to create a new Restore Point afterward> when you create a new one, it has a space to type in a reference name, put something like "after TSG cleanup" or something you will recognize as a good Restore Point....it will be dated automatically for you.
Continue to keep all your spyware removal programs (AAW, SpyBot, etc) and your antivirus updated, and use them, and you should be in good shape.
