Hi, Your first step is to download and run CWShredder- that should clean up one malware (Coolwebsearch hijacking).

http://users.skynet.be/bk136527/CWS/CWSdomains.htm

Download it to a folder you make and can easily find-close ALL browser windows and run the cwshredder.exe. Choose the FIX button, not the Scan Only one, and let it search and remove what it finds. Reboot computer.
Go to Windows Updates and get ALL critical updates, they patch the vulnerability that CWS gets in through.
Then please post a new logfile from HJThis- there will be more to do.

This particular variant of CWS will come back unless you delete these files if they are present on your machine:

C:\Windows\System32\mtwirl.dll and C:\Windows\System32\mtwcnl32.dll. One or both of those will be present and should be deleted in safe mode.

These files are hidden so 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"


How to start your computer in safe mode

Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WebInstall2] C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\ins37.tmp /R /A

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINNT\UpdReg.EXE


Restart to safe mode.

In safe mode navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\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.

Hi, Please post back and let us know your progress.

Flrman1- thanks for the details about removing that file... I was not aware of this one recurring!
I see this one is called Smartfinder, and have read the details about the mtwirl32.dll not appearing in HJTlogs...
pretty darn sneaky! Looks like the newest one is bad, too: From the CWS Chronicles page:
"Variant 39: CWS.Realyellowpage - Inducing homocidal tendencies- "
Merijn phrased that correctly- you will be looking for someone AND your guns if you run into it!!
I'm just waiting for that one special friend I have who ALWAYS manages to get infected by the latest stuff to call... she runs a beauty shop so now my wife gets free hair care :) I've patched, installed every blocking software I could find etc and she still gets it!

Yes there are quite a few CWS variants now that CWShredder doesn't remove. This one is easy to fix compared to the latest one with the random files and BHO's. It is really giving all the experts a fit trying to find a fix. :mad:

Hi-
My computer is acting fine now (thank you!), although I am fearful of lingering leftovers infecting again. It's impossible for me to tell what belongs and what doesn't, so I appreciate all of your expertise. Here's what I got now for my hjt log, let me know what you think:

Clean! (y)

Now for some tips to help prevent this:

Go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs"

Go to Start > All Programs > Spybot Search & Destroy > Spybot S & D (Advanced mode) to open Spybot in Advanced Mode.
Click on the "Spybot S&D" button in the left column and under that click on "Immunize". On that page under "Permanent Internet Explorer Immunity" click the "Immunize" button then down below that under "Permanently running bad download blocker for Internet Explorer" click "Install" then right there in the dropdown menu set it to "Block all bad pages silently". Next under that you will see "Recommended miscellaneous protections". Put a check by "Lock IE start page against user changes (current user)".

Remember to Immunize regularly as the protectons are updated too.


Check this out for info on how to tighten your security settings and some good free tools to help prevent this from happening again.
