Hi, haven't had to come here for a long time, but I require your expertise. I'm having a problem getting Spy Axe off my computer, and I have a red X in my task bar that keeps giving me a pop up telling me my 'computer is infected'. Evertime I think I've gotten rid of it, it reinstalls upon startup. I don't know where to start, so I'll just begin with an HJT scan, give me instructions from there.

* Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in safe mode.



*Download Cleanup from Here


http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/download.html




* A window will open and choose SAVE, then DESKTOP as the destination.
* On your Desktop, click on Cleanup40.exe icon.

* DO NOT RUN IT YET



* Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite.



http://www.ewido.net/en/


* 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.


http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam



* 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:



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


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyAxe] C:\Program Files\SpyAxe\spyaxe.exe /h

* Click on the "Cleanup" button and let it run.
* Once its done, close the program.


* 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 an online antivirus check from

http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner





* Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm


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 another hijack this log, the ewido and active scan logs and
the contents of smitfiles.txt from the smitRem folder

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.



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.

reboot to normal mode and download these tools and run them!


go to this site and download these tools and once you get both
adaware Se 1.6 and spybot, update both of them.

Set adaware to do a full system scan and deselect, "search for neglible risk

Delete what spybot finds marked in red. After updating spybot hit the
immunize button.

With CWshredder close all browsers and programmes and select the FIX button.



Go here and download Microsoft Antispyware Beta. First in the top menu click
File then Check for updates to download the definitons updates.

After updating look in the right side of the main window under "Run Quick

full system scan and then put a check by all three options below that then
click Run Scan now.

quarantine the items that have that option rather than delete just in case.
It is a beta program and there may be false positives)

Question; The Microsoft Antispyware program has made itself a startup item and a continuous running process. Am I going to keep it as such, or will I be turning it off?

Thanks for all the help so far.

yes keep it as a running process as it will give you a lot of protection.

clean log. How's the computer running now any better?


you don't appear to have a firewall, even if you have a router you still need
a software frewall, downlaod the one from the link below!

Filseclab Personal Firewall Professional Edition

you should now turn off system restore to flush out the bad restore points and
then re-enable it and make a new clean restore point.

here's some free tools to keep you from getting infected in the future.


to stop reinfection get these two tools, spywareguard and spywareblaster
from


http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/downloads.html


get the hosts file from here.



http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm



put it into :


Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98\ME = C:\WINDOWS



ie-spyad.Puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected

when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm



http://www.winpatrol.com/winpatrol.html



Use spybot's immunize button and use spywareblaster' enable
protection once you update it. you can put spybot's hosts file into
your own and lock it.



I would also suggest switching to Mozilla's firefox browser, it's safer, has
a built in pop up blocker, blocks cookies and adds. Mozilla Thunderbird is also a good
e-mail client.
