    Hello,

    If anyone can help me with this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. I am getting a Windows warning that says sspmydoom.cih version 2.018 is found on my computer and that someone is trying to access through port 245.

    I have read a few previous posts on this topic, but need some help to tackle this problem.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Hi jay3379

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    Please do this:

    First create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This.

    Now Click here to download Hijack This. Download it and click "Save". Save it to the Hijack This folder you just created.

    Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program. Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. Click "Save" to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.

    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    First Click here to download cwsserviceremove.zip and unzip it to your desktop and have it ready to run later.
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Click here to download CWShredder. Do Not run it yet. Download it to the desktop and have it ready to run later.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    Click here to download AboutBuster created by Rubber Ducky.

    Unzip AboutBuster to the Desktop then click the "Update Button" then click "Check for Update" and download the updates and then click "Exit" because I don't want you to run it yet. Just get the updates so it is ready to run later in safe mode.
    _____________________________________________________________________

    Now go ahead and set your computer to show hidden files like so:

    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"
    ______________________________________________________________________

    Sign off the internet and remain offline until this procedure is complete. Unplug your modem or disconnect the cable or phone line. Copy these instructions to notepad and save them on your desktop for easy access. You must follow these directions exactly and you cannot skip any part of it.
    ______________________________________________________________________


    Click Start > Run > and type in:

    services.msc

    Click OK.

    In the services window find Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Helper.
    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.

    CAUTION: There is also a service named Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator and one called Remote Procedure Call (RPC) . These are the legitimate services. Do not stop those two.
    ______________________________________________________________________

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode


    Perform the following steps in safe mode:

    ____________________________________________________________________


    Double click on the cwsserviceremove.reg file you downloaded at the beginning to enter into the registry. Answer yes when asked to have it's contents added to the registry.

    Download DelDomains.inf from here:

    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

    Rightclick DelDomains.inf and choose install.


    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.



    Go here and do an online virus scan.

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself. Housecall will detect the leftover files from this hijacker.



    This hijacker is known to alter or delete certain files so check this out please:

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

    If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file.
    Go here and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing your Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

    Check in the C:\Windows\system32 folder to be sure you have a file named Shell.dll. If you do not have one, go to the C:\Windows\system32\dllcache folder.
    Find shell.dll and right click on it. Choose Copy from the menu.
    Open the System32 folder and right click on an empty space in the window. Choose Paste from the menu.


    control.exe may have been deleted.
    See if control.exe is present in C:\windows\system32

    If control.exe isn't there, go here, and download control.exe per the instructions at the site.

    IMPORTANT!: Please check your ActiveX security settings. They may have been changed by this CWS variant to allow ALL ActiveX!! Reset your active x security settings like so... Go to Internet Options > Security > Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
    Now press "Custom Level."
    In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.


    Go here and download Ad-Aware SE.

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the 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 and click Next)

    Restart your computer.




    When you are sure you are clean 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.

    OK I am ready to do all these steps, but I have one quick question before I start. Will doing all this also take care of any other trojans/viruses that are on my comp? (basically after I complete this list, is there anything else I should do before i create a restore point when I am finished?)

    That should take care of it, but if you are unsure, post another HJT log before you create a restore point.
