Well this all happened after I accidentally clicked a "you have won a million dollars" pop up in the middle of a site. Every minute now my computer is getting worse and worse, Half of my desktop is filled with random programs now and more just keep coming. I've tried symantec antivirus, spybot S&D, and adaware, and nothing is working. I have been keeping up on windows updates as well so I can't imagine how things have gotten so screwed up in fifteen minutes. As a last resort I ran hijackthis and saved the log. Hopefully someone here can help me. Adaware will delete 220 objects then ill run it immediately after and 300 objects will be infected. I have no idea what's going on and I'm about to scream. Here's the log:

Go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall WondowsSA, EliteBar, My Daily Horiscope and Home Seach.

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

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next 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"

Now find and delete these files:

C:\WINDOWS\system.exe
C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\qpexgy.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\tmz.exe

Delete these folders:

C:\WINDOWS\EliteBar
C:\WINDOWS\System32\xxyy
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Great Free Option Web
C:\Program Files\WindowsSA
C:\Program Files\NaviSearch
C:\Program Files\CashBack
C:\Program Files\SED
C:\Program Files\My DailyHoriscope
C:\Program Files\OWNSMA~1

I don't know the exact name of that last folder, but it will begin with OWNSMA and it will contain the gramless.exe file

Boot back to Windows and do the following:

Click here to download LspFix

Launch the application, and click the "I know what I'm doing" checkbox.

Check all instances of cdlsp.dll and lspak.dll (and nothing else) , and move them to the "Remove" pane.
Then click Finish.

Now start your computer in Safe Mode and delete these files:

C:\windows\system32\lspak.dll
c:\windows\system32\cdlsp.dll


Click Here and download the VX2Finder.exe tool. Click on the VX2Finder.exe and then click on the Click to Find VX2.Betterinternet button. It will display the files, the Guardian Key and User Agent string. Now click the Make Log button. It will open the log in notepad. Copy and paste that log here and wait for further instructions.

Boot back into windows and Run LSPfix like I said and VX2Finder. You don't need to be running in safe mode except when you are deleting the files..

After you run LspFix and delete the other files. Post the VX2Fider log and another Hijack This log. When you post a Hijack This log you need to always post it all. You are leaving this part off:

We need to see that too.

IMPORTANT!: Before you run this tool please close ALL running programs. Sign off and stay off the internet until the entire procedure is complete.


Now run VX2Finder again and click on the Find VX2.Betterinternet button. It will display the entries as before. Select all these files

C:\WINDOWS\System32\KrCOM.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Lj32.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\System32\VkRSION.DLL


This time click on the Delete these files button. It will give you a message about one file to be deleted on reboot.
It will ask to reboot to delete the last file. Go ahead and Restart the computer

After it reboots run VX2Finder again and click on the User Agent button and it will delete the user agent string.

Finally click the Restore Policy button to restore the Debug policy altered in the look2Me installation.

Restart your computer



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

I did not Add Weatherbug to my list for removal, but it is adware. Check this out for info on Weatherbug and make your own decision:

http://www.pchell.com/support/weatherbug.shtml

Here are two adware free alternatives:

http://www.tropicdesigns.net/ -----> I use this one.

http://www.singerscreations.com/




Run VX2Finder again. This time click on the Make Log button as you did before and also click on the Hosts Log button. Copy and paste both of those logs here in your next reply along with another Hijack This log as well.

First you need to unzip (extract) Hijack This and move it to a permanent folder. It will not function properly when run from the zip folder or the Temp folder.

You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Right click on the HijackThis.zip file and choose "Extract all" and extract it to the Hijack This folder you created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.


Download the Hoster from here . UnZip the file and press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.


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

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

Thanks for what you've done so far, flrman1, computer seems to be running much faster. Here's the latest log, and I have some questions still. As far as questions go:

After a restart this message pops up now: "Error loading C:\Program Files\Wildtangent\Apps\CDA\cdaEngine0400.dll The specified module could not be found"
What does that mean, and what can I do?

Also, If I go to the control panel>add/remove programs, these programs still show up on the list:

Bullseye Network
Cashback by BargainBuddy
Elitebar Internet Explorer Toolbar (tried to remove this at the very beginning and the screen just flashes for a second but nothing happens)
NaviSearch
Websearch Toolbar
Wildtangent Web Driver
Red Swoosh EDN client (remove only)

These are all the programs that I did not recognize, and most seem to coincide with the spyware we've been trying to remove. So, what should I do? Attempt to remove them?

Oh, and here's the latest hijackthis log.
