    This evening, I was infected with the sspMydoom.cih virus. I have all the symptoms described by other people in this forum - start page is about:blank, pop-up says I am infected and someone is trying to access me through a certain port, and more pop-up windows. Also, a Norton window keeps telling me that a malicious script called 35B.tmp.exe.js is in my Temp folder. I downloaded the updates for and then ran Norton and Ad-aware 6. Still, the offending objects keep popping up after I have quarantined them. I also tried HSRemove 2.40. Please help...I would greatly appreciate it! I have Windows XP. Here is my hijackthis log:

    Hello Shawne and Welcome to TSG! :D

    Download Ad-Aware SE from here:
    http://www.download.com/3001-8022_4-10319876.html

    Install and run Ad-Aware SE. On the bottom right corner of Ad-Aware you will see an option called "Check for updates now", click on that and choose "connect". Download the updates. Next click on "Scan now" on the left side of Ad-Aware. Make sure that "Search for negligible risk entries" is crossed out and not ticked. Choose "Perform full system scan" and click "Next". After Ad-Aware scans your computer, Ad-Aware may find some bad files on your computer so make sure you tick them all and choose "Next". It will ask if you want to remove those items so just continue. After removing the items close Ad-Aware.

    Download Spybot S&D from here:
    http://users.skynet.be/fa936042/spybotsd13.exe

    Install and run Spybot S&D. Choose "Search for updates". Next choose "Download updates". After that, choose "Search and Destroy" and click on "Check for problems". If Spybot finds any nasties on your computer, make sure that they are ticked and choose "Fix selected problems".

    Download SpywareBlaster from here:
    http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=2859&file=11&evp=61b0e8ad41924a03c37615f4682b4cef

    Install and run SpywareBlaster. Click on "Updates" and then choose "Check for updates". Next choose "Protection" and at the top you will see different tabs which are Internet Explorer, Restricted sites and Mozilla/Firefox. Choose one of them at a time and at the bottom click "Protect Against Checked Items" (make sure that all of the items are checked). Tick the boxes above the items. Make sure you do this for all of the top tabs. Mozilla/Firefox you only need to do if you have the user profiles on your computer. You may now exit out of SpywareBlaster.

    Download CWShredder from here:
    http://cwshredder.net/bin/CWSInstall.exe

    Install and run CWShredder. Click on "Check for Update" and download the latest updates. Next, click on "Fix". Exit out of CWShredder.

    Download DelDomains from here:
    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

    After downloading the file, Right-Click and select "Install". This will get rid of the O15 entries in HijackThis.

    Restart your computer and post a fresh HijackThis log back on this thread.

    Read all these instructions carefully, Print them out and download all the things mentioned before starting

    First download CWshredder from http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html and install it and update it, DO not run it yet
    Also
    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.

    Download pocket killbox from Download pocket killbox from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe & put it on the desktop where you can find it easily

    download http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf and place it of desktop
    right click the file and select install, that will reset the trusted zone domains that have been wrongly placed there

    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.

    Now boot into safe mode

    These hijackers are known to alter or delete certain files so check this out please:

    Download the Hoster from here . UnZip the file and run hoster then 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 you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

    Check in the System32 folder to be sure you have a file named Shell.dll. If you do not have one, go to System32\dllcache
    Find shell.dll and right click on it. Choose Copy from the menu.
    Open System32 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!! If they have been changed, reset your active x security settings in IE as recommended open IE/tools/options and press security/press internet and press default


    Then post a new hijackthis log to check please

    I have removed about 20 add on posts from this thread

    IF you have the same problem start a new post

    DO NOT tag on to someone elses thread or you will not get dealt with
    This problem is extremely hard to cure and it cannot be dealt with as an add on to another post
