Sometimes when I click on links I get sent to a search page of online casinos, called newvirtualcasino.com, or an online pharmacy page, or a box that says "windows xp firewall has found a problem, do you want to investigate it" or something to that effect, but if you click "yes" you get a spy blocking site. It is random, because it has occurred at att.net, google.com, and other sites, but not every time I perform the same action. Actually, it is also when I open a new IE window.

Also I am posting my HJT log. I think it's okay except for the "O17" entry. I have checked several info websites, but can't tell whether it's ATT and OK, or
a spy. Are there any sites that list different entries for HJT and if they are problems?

hi, welcome to TSG.

I don't actually see anything in your log, so, run these two programmes and see what they find.


017 is your ISp , it's ok!


you'll need to turn off spybot's teatimer as it will interfere with the fixes.


Before you proceed with the removal directions below you need to turn off MS
Anti-Spyware's realtime protection as it will interfere with the changes we
are trying to make.

Open MS Anti-Spyware and click on Options > Settings. Click on "Realtime
Protection" in the left pane.

Remove the check by these:

"Enable the Microsoft Security Agents on startup (recommended)"

"Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended)"

Click "Save"

Now right click the MS Anti-spyware icon in your system tray and choose
"Shutdown Microsoft Anti-Spyware"

You should re-enable these when we are finished here.


download ccleaner

http://www.ccleaner.com/


* Install CCleaner
* Launch CCleaner and look in the upper right corner and click on the "Options" button.
* Click "Advanced" and remove the check by "Only delete files in Windows temp folders older than 48 hours".
* Click OK
* Do not run CCleaner yet. You will run it later in safe mode.


Click on the Issues tab, uncheck both boxes Registry Integrity and File
Integrity
Click the Applications tab, scroll down to the Multimedia section and uncheck
Macromedia Flash Player.

then run the scan under the windows tab.





have hijack this fix these entries. close all browsers and programmes before
clicking FIX.

How to boot to safe mode

Just one question before I post the HJT and Ewido logs. I found a program in my WINDOWS file called "spanwhmh.exe". It says its size is 0Kb, there was no info on publishers, and when I googled the name I could find no references. Any ideas on what it might be?

clean log.

Is it a pop up your getting, sometimes you get these pop ups claiming your pc ins in danger of spyware and you should do blah blah blah. Just ignore and use the pop up blocker in IE?

find and delete this file .

spanwhmh.exe


here's some free tools to keep you from getting infected in the future.


to stop reinfection get these two tools, spywareguard and spywareblaster
from

www.javacoolsoftware.com


get the hosts file from here.

put it into :


Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98\ME = C:\WINDOWS

http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm


ie-spyad.Puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected

when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm



http://www.winpatrol.com/winpatrol.html


prevX: it stops spyware

http://www.prevx.com/prevxhome.asp


Use spybot's immunize button and use spywareblaster' enable
protection once you update it. you can put spybot's hosts file into
your own and lock it. Plus you can also turn on spybot's tea timer
for added protection against pests.

I would also suggest switching to Mozilla's firefox browser, it's safer, has a built in pop up blocker, blocks cookies and adds.
