    Hi all,

    I am another victim of the Win Min Error and like everyone else, my homepage is re-directed to http://bestfind4u.com/index.htm, I have four unwanted bookmarks, and I get the Win Min 'program still running' when I try to shut down. I have tried NoAdware and Hijack This but still keeps coming back. Would someone mind checking out my HJT log file and letting me know what I should be removing.

    Cheers!!!

    Hello emz and Welcome to TSG! :D ''

    Download Ad-Aware SE from here:
    http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html?part=69274&subj=dlpage&tag=button

    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.

    Restart your computer.

    You are running an older version of HijackThis, please download the latest version from here:
    http://www.click-now.net/cgi-bin/download.pl?file=0965

    Run HijackThis and choose "Do a system scan and save log file".

    Make sure that you are disconnected from the Internet before doing any of the following. I suggest you either print or save this page.

    Run HijackThis and fix the following entries:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://bestfind4u.com/sp.htm

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://bestfind4u.com/index.htm

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://bestfind4u.com/index.htm

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://bestfind4u.com/sp.htm

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://bestfind4u.com/index.htm

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Registry Server] spoolsvc.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows Registry Server] spoolsvc.exe


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

    Fix these too:

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [jquaxmt] c:\windows\quowsjo.exe

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe


    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\quowsjo.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\spoolsvc.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.

    Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click 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.


    Empty the Recycle Bin


    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.

    When you are sure you are clean turn it back on and create a restore point.


    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. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.



    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.

    IMPORTANT!: I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs" except for Service Pack 2 ASAP!. This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows. Many baddies get on your machine by taking advantage of these vulnerabilities. As your machine stands now it is wide open to attack from all sorts of nasties. You need to get these updates IMMEDITELY!

    Note: At this time I do not recommend that you install Service Pack 2 until you have read the info at the following links and are sure that it will not cause problems with your system:

    Restart your computer.


    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.



    Go here and download Microsoft Antispyware Beta. First press file and check for updates and then run it.

    Let it fix anything that it finds (have it quarantine them rather than delete just in case. It is a beta program and there may be false positives)

    Thanks Flrman 1. Done all that and I hope it's fixed now. I have copied my HJT file in case there is something else you can see that I should get rid of.

    Thanks again!

    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.
