My nephew got on my computer last night and guess what??? I now have a hijacker. It is similar to some other posts. I tried that but ran into a dead-end. The problem is:

My wallpaper is that big red bio-hazard symbol, the message "YOUR PRIVACY IS IN DANGER. DOWNLOAD PRIVACY PROTECTION SOFTWARE NOW" is displayed, and the desktop cannot be changed by right-clicking it (it has essentially become one big button surface).

Then after a while, ominous warnings appear concerning spyware and trojans. When I cancel those messages, IE automatically launches and goes to sites that try to get me to buy WinAntiVirus Pro 2007, Ultimate Cleaner, Ultimate Defender, etc.

I have a 3 year old Dell workstation running Win XP Home; Here is the HiJackThis log:

Hi, bradmcsd. :)

Welcome to TSG.

Your Java seems to be out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Ugrading Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u2.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.
Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.

Note: In the event you already have Vundofix, this is a new version that I need you to download.
  • Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
  • You will receive a message saying vundofix will close and re-open in a minute or less. Click OK
  • When VundoFix re-opens, click the Scan for Vundo button.
  • Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
  • You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
  • Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
  • When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click OK.
  • Turn your computer back on.
  • Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt in your next reply.
Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove. In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button" when VundoFix appears at reboot.

Download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download.
  • Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log and in your next reply
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall

Download Superantispyware (SAS)
  1. Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
  2. It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
  3. Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
  4. Click the Scanning Control tab.
  5. Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
    • Close browsers before scanning
    • Scan for tracking cookies
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
    • Please leave the others unchecked.
    • Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
  6. On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
  7. On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
  8. On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
  9. Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  10. After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
  11. Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
  12. It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
  13. To retrieve the removal information, please do the following:
    • After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
    • Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
    • Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
  14. Click close and close again to exit the program.
  15. Please paste that information in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.

I did what you suggested and it worked! After doing everything suggested in Safe Mode, I rebooted and ran a virus checker from AVG (http://www.grisoft.com/) because my subscription from McAfee has expired. Is this a good product or do you recommend something else? I have a 30-day trial, so I have some time to switch if there is something better out there.

Thanks again. I will definitely make a contribution. (y)

Hi, bradmcsd :)

Let me see the reports. Chances are there are other bad files in the system.

Concerning the Antivirus programs, AVG is an excellent program. This also may help:

Free Protection:

AVG FREE
AVIRA
AVAST
Activevirusshield

Shareware:

Node32

Reccomendation: -> Node32

Remember, only one (1) Antivirus program is needed. More that one it will give you problems.
