Our computer is having big problems. My hubby wanted to look after the problem himself, and it's escalated to the point where he can't update his antivirus program, we have several trojans and we can't stop Internet Explorer from loading the wrong home page. He worked with McAfee to try to fix the problem with a firewall and now I can't access the shared printer, his files. In short, everything is in a mess now.

We'd like to reinstall Windows XP and start from scratch with the proper security settings, a proper firewall setup, etc. to help prevent this from happening in the future. Is there anyone who would be willing to work with us on this project? We're also open to other suggestions ... we're not looking forward to re-installing all of the software, etc. that reinstalling Windows will entail.

We're willing to contribute $$$ to this Forum in exchange for the help.

We were able to get McAfee working again & updated and it's finding trojans like crazy. It also turns out that we have CoolWebSearch (and CWShredder didn't get rid of it). We have ByteVerify, JavaNoCheat and other assorted trojans. We need some help cleaning up this mess and setting up security to prevent this in the future.

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 and save the file to the Hijack This folder you just created.

Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program.

Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

The log should 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. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

As a result of the problems with the computer, my hubby created a 2nd profile. I did HiJackThis from the first, original profile ... Let me know if you need the log from the second, newer profile.

We fixed several trojans once we got McAfee up & running again -
StartPage-DU!
StartPage-DU
ByteVerify
Exploit-Codebase
MultiDropper-KU

We haven't restarted the computer since doing this.

We will need to see a log from the other profile as well, but let's do them one at a time. When we finish with this one we can proceed to the next.

Please do this:

Click here to download FindNFix.

Extract it (it should autoextract to C:\FindnFix when you double click it)

Go to the C:\FindnFix folder and doubleclick on !LOG!.BAT and let it run. It will generate a log.txt file. Copy and paste log.txt back here in your next reply.

Click here to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.



Go here and download Adaware 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.

Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.

I couldn't update CWShredder, it wouldn't connect, so I just used the one that you said to download without updating it, then the updated Adaware SE (we were using just Adaware before) and here's the HJT log (I restarted between each program).

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

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"

Now find and delete these files:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\dp-him.exe
blaconv.exe


Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Next navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\mel thompson\Local Settings\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.

I ran HJT and fixed what you told me to fix. Then I went to SAFE mode but it only showed two profiles - Administrator and our son's profile which he never uses since he is only here part time (hasn't touched it in months). Neither of my husband's profiles were listed. I went into both administrator & my son's profile, and the files you mentioned were not listed (and I can see system & hidden files). I even did a search for *.exe and it didn't come up there either.

What should I do now?
