Hi,
I am Kings Zito, in past few days my computer was attacked by ”spysheriff”. After running Microsoft anti spyware and Panda anti virus, I was able to delete the virus, but the ”spysherriff” kept on coming till I decided to search for a help on the internet, after much exploration on the internet, I was very lucky to get your website from CNN search.

Getting to your website, I saw a topic "I need help getting rid of SpySherriff", which was the same problem as mine then, so I followed the same instruction given to ”elusive_jp” on the 04-Jul-2005, by ”flrman1”, after downloading and scanning as He (flrman1) directed, the spysheriff is no where to be found in my computer again. I am very grateful.

So now, my problems are these, first, my windows XP is in Hungarian and I don't understand Hungarian, secondly, after this attack, each time I start my computer it does bring out something like this on the start up “windows could not find init32m.exe” Is there any way I can change my windows language to English, without deleting or re-running my programs? And how can I fix the “init32m.exe” problem? Please any advice on these two issues will be highly appreciated. Below is my computer's logfile of Hijackthis

* Click here to download smitRem.zip.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Unzip smitRem.zip to extract the files it contains.
  • Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in safe mode.


* Go here to download CCleaner.
  • Install CCleaner
  • Launch CCleaner and look in the upper right corner and click on the "Options" button.
  • Click "Advanced" and remove the check by "Only delete files in Windows temp folders older than 48 hours".
  • Click OK
  • Do not run CCleaner yet. You will run it later in safe mode.


* Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here.
  • Install ewido.
  • During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • Launch ewido
  • It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
  • On the left side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start and let it update.
  • DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.


* Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know how.


* Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You will need them to refer to in safe mode.


* Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


* Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


* Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
  • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
  • Save the report to your desktop


* Start Ccleaner and click Run Cleaner


* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


* Next go to Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab then click the "Customize Desktop" button. Click on the "Web" tab. Under "Web Pages" you should see an entry checked called something like "Security info" or similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.


* Restart back into Windows normally now.


* Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HiJackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan and the ewido scan

When you downalod the file choose "Save" and save it to your desktop. Don't choose "open". Save it then unzip smitRem.zip to extract the files it contains.

** Before you proceed with the removal directions below you need to turn off MS Anti-Spyware's realtime protection as it will interfere with the changes we are trying to make.

  • Open MS Anti-Spyware and click on Options > Settings.
  • Click on "Realtime Protection" in the left pane.
  • Remove the check by these:
    • Enable the Microsoft Security Agents on startup (recommended)
    • Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended)
  • Click "Save"
  • Now right click the MS Anti-spyware icon in your system tray and choose "Shutdown Microsoft Anti-Spyware"
  • You should re-enable these when we are finished here.



* Click Here and download Killbox and save it to your desktop.


* Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You will need them to refer to.


* Click Start > Run > and type in:

services.msc

Click OK.

In the services window find stchost.exe.
Rightclick and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then OK. Exit the Services utility.

Note: You may get an error here when trying to access the properties of the service. If you do get an error, just select the service and look there in the top left of the main service window and click "Stop" to stop the service. If that gives an error or it is already stopped, just skip this step and proceed with the rest.


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

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe init32m.exe

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {A6790AA5-C6C7-4BCF-A46D-0FDAC4EA90EB} - (no file)

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows installer] C:\winstall.exe

O21 - SSODL: RealJukebox 1.0 - {2E17BDC0-E40F-D1D6-33B7-594CA016C624} - c:\program files\common files\real\update_ob\winwzrkyj2.dll (file missing)



* Next in Hijack This click on the "Config" button in the lower right corner. In the next window click on the "Misc Tools" button at the top then click the "Delete an NT service" button. Copy and paste the following line in that box:

moto

Click OK.


* Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


* Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\winstall.exe

C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\USER\FAVORITES\PHARMACY\Breast Enlargement.url

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\cvxh8jkdq5.exe

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\thn.dll


Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

Exit the Killbox.


* Start Ccleaner and click Run Cleaner


* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


* Restart back into Windows normally now.


* Go here and do an online virus scan. Choose "Complete Scan" and select all drives to scan.

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Click "Print Report". The report will open in your browser. Go to File > Save As and save the file to your desktop. Under "Save as type" click the dropdown menu and choose "Text file (*.txt) and save it as a text file.

Post a new HiJackThis log along with the report from the Housecall scan

Clean! (y)

Now turn off System Restore:

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Restart your computer, turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

To create a restore point:

Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.

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