Hi Ttank

Start > Programs > Startup
is there a shortcut for Internet Explorer showing?

If so, delete it and Internet Explorer will stop running at startup.

________________________________________________________________

If nothing shows for your Startup folder.
Start > Run
key in:
msconfig
select the Startup tab
do you see an entry for Internet Explorer?

What operating system and version of Internet Explorer are you running?

Let us know.

To remove Internet Explorer from Startup, just remove the checkmark for Internet Explorer in the System Configuration Utility.
Reboot for the changes to take effect.
Windows may complain on startup that you have changed the System Configuration Utility.
We can use HijackThis (available below) to remove the Internet Explorer entry from the System Configuration Utility completely.

Have you been having any other problems?

To rule out viruses/spyware, I would advise, leaving everything checked in the System Configuration Utility and
Runnning an online Anti-Virus scan from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
Allow them to clean/delete any spyware/malware or viruses/trojans they may find.
Make a note of any files flagged that were unable to be cleaned or deleted.

Download or verify you have the most recent versions of:
Ad-Aware SE 1.05
Spybot-S&D (ver. 1.3) and
HijackThis (ver 1.99)


Install Ad-Aware SE and Spybot-S&D and check each of them in turn for updates.

For Ad-Aware SE click on Full System Scan and deselect Search for negligible risk entries.
Let Ad-Aware SE remove what it finds.
Run Spybot-S&D and have it fix what it finds marked in Red.

Install HijackThis to a FOLDER on your C or main harddrive, do NOT install HijackThis to a temporary directory.
This will allow HijackThis to properly create backup files.

After running your online virus scans and running Ad-Aware SE and Spybot S&D,
close all programs and reboot to complete the removal process.
After Rebooting your computer,
Start HijackThis
click on Do a system scan and save a logfile.
Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

Close HijackThis and post your complete logfile here and one of our security experts will take a look at it.

Have you downloaded the latest updates for your Symantec Anti-Virus program?
It should have picked up this file:
C:\Program Files\DSB\dsb.exe

It is Adware EnergyPlugin, did you install this program?

Did any of the online Anti-Virus scans point to any files that could not be cleaned or deleted?

HijackThis needs to be unzipped into its own folder, to make backups properly.

Create a folder on your C:\ drive and and unzip HijackThis to that folder.

Anti-virus already up to date, did not spot DSB file.I am not aware of installing an adware energy plugin. The online anti-virus detectors found 1 infected file but cleaned it. Do I need to now fix any files on the hijackthis log?

that is a massively infected computer and I can't believe that a properly updated Norton would miss all that stuff showing

Download AdAware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download and install it if you haven't already got it. If you have it, then make sure it is updated and configured as described

Run ADAWARE

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
the current ref file should read at least SE1R27 55.02.2005 or a higher number/later date

Set up the Configurations as follows:

General Button
Safety:
Check (Green) all three.

Click on "Proceed"

Please deselect "Search for negligible risk entries", as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.

Click on "Scan Now"

Run the scanner using the Full Scan (Perform full system scan) mode.

When 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) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.


Reboot &

Download and install the Micro$oft antispyware BETA from http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx and let it fix anything it finds (when it finds things, please quarantine them rather than delete just in case as it is a beta and occasional False positives happen)

First press file and check for updates and then run it

Recent tests suggest that a combination of Adaware & M$AS removes approx 80% of spywares/Adwares, much higher than any other combination

Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
http://www.commandondemand.com/eval/index.cfm
http://www.freedom.net/viruscenter/onlineviruscheck.html
http://info.ahnlab.com/english/
http://www.pcpitstop.com/pcpitstop/AntiVirusCntr.asp

make sure autoclean is enabled in any of the scans you do

reboot and post a fresh hijackthis log

These are all the bad files I can see on the computer After you have done the online scans if any of these files are left then please submit them to my site

please go to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php and upload these files so I can examine them and distribute them to antivirus companies.
Just press new topic, fill in the needed details and just give a link to your post here & then press the browse button and then navigate to & select the files on your computer, If there is more than 1 file then press the more attachments button for each extra file and browse and select etc and then when all the files are listed in the windows press send to upload the files ( do not post HJT logs there as they will not get dealt with)

Files to submit:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\MSZTCE.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mcc.exe
C:\Program Files\DSB\dsb.exe
C:\WINDOWS\realtime.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Indexindicator.exe
C:\Program Files\ServicePackFiles\MEMreaload.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\SuiteOffices.exe
C:\Program Files\ServicePackFiles\reload.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Recalculate.exe
C:\Program Files\LocalProxy\proxy4free.exe
C:\WINDOWS\ptcore.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\iexplore.exe

and any files inside these folders please
C:\Program Files\ServicePackFiles\
C:\Program Files\LocalProxy
C:\Program Files\DSB


Once I have had a chance to examine them, I should be able to see what other files might have been hidden and dropped by them and help you clean right up

looks OK now so

Turn off system restore by following instructions here
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001111912274039
That will purge the restore folder and clear any malware that has been put in there. Then reboot & then re-enable sytem restore & create a new restore point.

go here http://forums.techguy.org/t208517/s.html for info on how to tighten your security settings and how to help prevent future attacks.

and pay an urgent visit to windows update & get the bunch of new updates that are alleged to plug the security holes that let these pests on in the first place
