    Please download the latest version of Hijack this, 1.98.2 and be sure not to save it to temporary files or the desktop.

    It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

    Download the LPS Fix:

    http://cexx.org/lspfix.htm

    Launch the application, and click the "I know what I'm doing" checkbox.

    Check all instances of lspak.dll (and nothing else), and move them to the "Remove" pane.
    Then click Finish.

    Now start your computer in Safe Mode and delete:

    The C:\windows\system32\lspak.dll file

    Please download and run the following programs:

    AD-AWARE

    Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    and download Ad-Aware SE Personal

    Install the program and launch it.

    First, in the bottom right-hand corner of the main window click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    Then, in the main window: Click Start and under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Then, deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    To start the scan, 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 then click Next)

    Restart your computer.

    SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY

    http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

    Then, after rebooting, please post another log and we’ll see what’s left to get rid of.

    Hi,

    At some point, you may need to scan for trojan worms, etc.

    Please try what is posted above first....LSPFix etc...



    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/tools.list.html

    Get the Dumaru worm removal tool here and run it....if you have this version it should fix it or tell you that it is not present, in that case, do the below:


    Try an online antivirus scan

    http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

    The ActiveX control takes a while to load, so be patient.

    Set the AUTOCLEAN setting by putting a check in that.

    Scan all hard drives, put check into "My Computer" and un-check floppy and CDROM drives....when the SCAN button turns dark you can click it and scan will start.

    take note of what it removes.

    Post a new HJT log when finished....

    This worm infects executable (.exe) files....some of your programs may not work because of this, only reinstalling them will fix that issue.

    Before you proceed with those instructions, please move Hijack This into its own folder in program files or my documents but not in the temporary files or on the desktop, so it can create proper back-ups and restore them if necessary.

    Turn off system restore. On the desktop, right-click on My Computer, click properties, click system restore tab, check turn off system restore, click apply and then OK. Restart your computer. Once your system is clean you will turn it back on and create a new restore point.

    Go to Control Panel - Add/Remove programs and remove:

    SED

    Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.

    Then boot to safe mode (see how below), locate and delete these files and/or folders:

    C:\Program Files\SED - folder

    How to restart to safe mode:
    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam

    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"

    Then reboot and post another log please.

    Hi, Just trying to help!

    I see you are still using HJThis from a temporary directory... the backups it makes will be strung all through the temp files, and at some point you will delete them...
    You should as advised...make a new folder to hold HJThis and its backups.

    Do this, it's easy: Right click on empty spot of desktop, select New>then> Folder> and rename it to HJT. Download a copy of HJT here

    http://tools.radiosplace.com/HijackThis.exe

    and when the file download pops up, change the path of the download TO Desktop, and browse to find the new HJT folder,click on HJT, and click Save to have it download to that folder. Then, run Hijackthis.exe from the HJT folder..so we can relax knowing that you have the backups safe and sound, OK?

    Your log looks very good,in case you want to end up for tonite, perhaps Cookiegal will be on in the morning.
    I know she will want to see your log and give you her OK...

    Actually, I still see a problem in the running processes:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\cvss.exe

    Please open Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and end task on that process.

    Then in safe mode locate and delete:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\cvss.exe - file

    Then reboot and post another log please.

    Hi Cookiegal- That can be tough to do. Had a post last nite where they couldn't get it to leave, if the poster in that thread was being straight with me about trying safe mode, etc...maybe they just gave up. Is this ALWAYS a bad process?

    Thanks for setting me straight. I'll write back after I return home to do your last instructions for the original computer. Sorry for the uneeded confusion.

    Hi Byteman,

    Yes, it's always a bad process. If it won't go peacefully we can use the "delete a file on reboot" feature of Hijack This or KillBox but I have been successful in removing it just by ending the process and deleting the file before. Of course every case is different and some are more stubbon than others.

    :)

    In safe mode, I deleted cvss.exe - but could not find it in the task manager.
