Win XP:Ran ad aware and spybot.Hjacklog enclosed needs analysis.
NoAdware showed; Twain tech,Magic control,blazefind,dyfuca,istbar powerscan,dynamic desktop and ipinsight.

Xoftspy showed; dyfuca,proclaim telcom,twaintech,vx2 Better internet,winpup32,cws.mrhop,toprebates,adlogix,mainpean dialler and dynamic desktop.

* Xoftspy 3.44 seems to be more descriptive :Xoftspy did'nt detect istbar.
listed dyfuca as malware. Twaintech as Annoyance,Dynamic desktop as min threat.

*Noadware 2.01
dyfuca recorded as a dialler. Twaintech as Dangerous,Dynamic desktop as dangerous

Which one above is more accurate?

Also windows\nem214.dll and wsem217.dll -are these deletable?or replaceable? what are they for?

*Pal spyware remover detected only nem214.dll and Moneytree.

Hjack log below needs to be analysed. Help!

All of the so called spyware removers except for adaware anmd spybot you have used are not recommended for use as they either have alot of false positives or are dangerous in themselves

Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
Open Windows Explorer & 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 untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Delete these files

C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mbiwdc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\QXELSGN.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\services\wmplayer.exe
C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll
C:\WINDOWS\2_0_1browserhelper2.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\nvms.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mscb.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msbe.dll

and Delete these folders

C:\Program Files\Winad Client
C:\program files\ddm
C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\APPLICATION DATA \Setup

then go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp and select everything in that folder and delete it (repeat for every user name/account )

and select EVERYTHING in C:\windows\temp except temporary internet files, cookies and history folders and delete all that as well

1) Open Control Panel
2) Click on Internet Options
3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

then
Reboot normally &

Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
AdAware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


Run Sybot S&D

After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

then reboot &

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 SE1R7 06.09.2004 or a higher number/later date
Then ........
click the "Scan" button. and select full scan

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. You can safely ignore any MRU entries though and not delete them

reboot again

then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

Remove AutoRun Reference:

Go To the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.
If you find the value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\safesurfingupdate, delete it and reboot the machine immediately.
Unregister DLLs:

Scan Finished

None of these exist... As Spybot/adawareSE came up clean.
1.Spy Sweeper came up with similar items as AdAware.
2.. Found traces of Dyfuca still present even after I had manually removed all known traces of it. AdAware got the ones I missed.
3. Found Winad.exe still present but removed it via Spybot/AdAware.
4. Spysweeper came up close to AdAware for scan results.So AdAware,Spybot and Spysweeper you can't go wrong. All Ihave to do is remove completely Xoftspy.

Thanks Dvk01.Have sent email to you.
