Dear Support people,

My dialup connection dials and attempts connection, but as soon as the actual internet connection begins, the dialup window spontaneously closes, the connection icon disappears and I get the explorer screen telling me I'm not connected.

It looks as if some virus prevents me from connecting... However I ran Kaspersky with the latest update and found nothing.

Where should I look next?

Tnaks,
Gil M.

Welcome to Techguy

Go to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/downloads.htm and download 'Hijack This!'.

First make a folder on your computer in my documents called Hijackthis and then Unzip it to that folder.
Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.

Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here
in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.

Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

If you are unable to get to the internet then do this


Put the disk into the bad computer's floppy drive, after the pc is started up.

You do not need Internet access on that pc to do this.

Open Windows Explorer and hit C: drive so the folders etc show over on the right side.

At the top, select File>New Folder, but rename the new folder to HJT, then, hit Drive A: to see the hijackthis.exe file, then EDIT> Copy, then click on the new HJT folder on drive C: that you made, EDIT> Paste and the hijackthis.exe file should be copied to C:\HJT folder so you can run it on the bad pc.

When you have hijackthis.exe in the HJT folder:

Start hijackthis.exe by double clicking it from the HJT folder and use the Scan button, it will scan and when done the Save Log button will show. Save the log as hijackthis.txt and copy and paste it back to the floppy disk.

Take the floppy disk to a good computer you access TSG with, come back to this thread, and copy and paste the log to a Reply to this thread.

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

NOTE: We are used to helping with pc's that do not have good Internet access, you can work this way but there will of course be a lot of going back and forth to post new logs, do the fixes... but after a few, there should be an improvement

Are you able to get on the internet with this machine ?

IMPORTANT!: I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs" except for
Service Pack 2 ASAP!. This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows. Many baddies get on your machine by taking
advantage of these vulnerabilities. As your machine stands now it is wide open to attack from all sorts of nasties. You need
to get these updates IMMEDITELY!


Then

Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?


Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the
scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or
make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.


Reboot and post a new hijackthis log

Oh I wish I *could* go on the Internet... this is actually the problem I'm trying to solve (see my first posting) :(

Is there a cleanup procedure for Internet-cripples?

Thanks,
Gil.

BTW, there are several other irregularities in the system, even in safe mode.
For example, the "search files" window refuses to open, services window shuts down spontaneously in some occasions, and other weird stuff.

I tried also applying the exact procedure in http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407 - except for anything there that implied using the Internet (updates, online scan etc), and the trouble is still there...

Boooo!

put a real av protection system on the compter rather than waiting until you think you're infected.

Correct, I promise to do it as soon as I get Internet.
Can you help me do it?

Catch 22, isn't it?
In order to clean a virus that prevents you from connecting to the Internet, you gotta connect to the Internet first, eh?

Can anyone please help me?

Thanks,
Gil.
