Hello -

I was hoping you guys can help me out again..

My computer keeps restarting 2-3 times, when I turn it on. It just flashes a sceen I can't read in time.. basically black background with blue inside, and white words - goes too fast to make anything out of it..

I followed the steps, and ran Adaware and removed a bunch of objects..

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hello lmaurer,

Were you ever able to repair/replace that wininet.dll? I'm wondering if smitfraud is working it's way back up so as a precautionary measure, please do the following:

Download smitRem at http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/click counter/click.php?id=1 and save the file to your desktop.

Please download Ewido Security Suite at http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and read the Ewido setup instructions at http://rstones12.geekstogo.com/ewidosetup.htm. Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow the download and setup instructions at http://rstones12.geekstogo.com/adawareSE_setup.htm. Otherwise, check for updates. Don't run it yet!

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work.

Run the smitRem.exe tool you downloaded earlier. Follow the prompts on the screen. Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

Go to Start->Run and type in notepad and hit OK. Then copy and paste the following into Notepad:

copy c:\windows\system\wininet.dll c:\windows\desktop
del copy.bat
Save the file as "copy.bat". Make sure to save it with the quotes. Double click on it.


Reboot. Scan the desktop folder with eTrust Web Scanner at http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx. When done, make sure the box is checked for wininet.dll and click cure.

Go to Start->Run and type in notepad and hit OK. Then copy and paste the following into Notepad:

del c:\windows\system\wininet.dll
del c:\windows\system\oleadm.dll
del c:\windows\system\oleext.dll
copy c:\windows\desktop\wininet.dll c:\windows\system
del delete.bat


Save the file as "delete.bat". Make sure to save it with the quotes. Double click on it.

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

Run Ewido:

* Click on scanner.
* Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
* NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.
* You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
* If Ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
* Do NOT select 'Perform action on all infections'.
* If you are unsure of any entry found, select none for now.
* When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
* Save the report to your desktop.

Close Ewido.

Next go to Control Panel->Display->Desktop->Customize Desktop->Web-> Uncheck 'Security Info' if present.

Reboot back into Windows and go to http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm to do a full system scan.

  1. Click on the Scan your PC button & a 'pop up' window shall appear. * ensure that your pop up blocker doesn't block it
  2. Click On 'Scan Now'
  3. Enter your e-mail address & click 'Scan Now' ...begins downloading Panda's ActiveX controls.- 8MB
  4. Begin the scan by selecting My Computer
    * You needn't remain online while it's doing the scan but you have to re-connect after it has finished to see the report.
  5. If it finds any malware, it will offer you a report. Click on see report
  6. Then click Save report
  7. Post the contents of the report in your next reply

Download FindIt's.zip http://forums.net-integration.net/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=142443 to your desktop.

1. Unzip/extract the files inside to a folder on your desktop.
2. Open the folder. Double click on FindIt's.bat and wait for Notepad to open a text file. It will take a while so please be patient... Note: If you are having problems using FindIt's.bat (16 bit error), copy autoexec.nt from the C:\WINDOWS\repair folder to C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder. Now try running FindIt's.bat.
3. Then post the FindIt's log here along with the logs for HijackThis, Panda ActiveScan, smitfiles.txt and Ewido.

Hi Ried -

Thanks for getting back to me so soon!!! I finally got a chance to go through your advice.

I thought I repaired it.. I can't remember for sure though...

Ok, I've followed all the steps up to the notepad - copy c:\windows\system\wininet.dll c:\windows\desktop..

before I continue, I just want to verify - do I want to copy from C:\winnt\system32\ ?, and the file in there is all capitals - WININET.dll. Plus, do I copy to just c:\desktop? Since I don't have a windows\system or windows\destop..

I don't see a oleadm.dll or oleext.dll in my c:\winnt\system32? I did a file scan for both and they don't exist.. Just want to make sure that ok, I imagine it is - since we are deleting anyway..

Thanks for the help! I'll wait for your reply to continue - for now here was the log from smitRem

Hi,

What we're going to do is set up that file to be scanned/cured (if need be) by eTrust Web Scanner. For the following instructions, just open Notepad as indicatedand copy/paste the bolded text into Notepad, click File then Save as then type in copy.bat and click OK.

Go to Start->Run and type in notepad and hit OK. Then copy and paste the following into Notepad:
copy c:\windows\system\wininet.dll c:\windows\desktop
del copy.bat


Save the file as "copy.bat". Make sure to save it with the quotes. Double click on it.
Reboot. Scan the desktop folder with eTrust Web Scanner at http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx. When done, make sure the box is checked for wininet.dll and click cure.

Since you don't see the other files, after completing the step above, continue from the Ewido scan...

Reid -

I actually did perform that step.. but I'm still a little confused, since I have no C:\windows\system or c:\windows\desktop directory - that doesn't matter?

So, since I've performed that step - should I see a wininet.dll under c:\windows\desktop? Sorry if I don't understand this..

Thanks,
Lee

Hi Lee,

My apologies, you can just skip that step as it only applies to non-NT systems. Since the smitrem came up clean. Please continue with Ewido, Panda and FindIts.

Ok Lee, there were some pieces/parts of smitfraud left over along with a new trojan. Here we go: :smile:

Download KillBox http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/KillBox.exe.

Reboot into Safe Mode.(tapping F8 or F5)

Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Ctrl-C:

C:\WINNT\system32\Date.ico
C:\WINNT\system32\network.ico
C:\WINNT\system32\pharm.ico
C:\WINNT\system32\spam.ico
C:\WINNT\system32\spyware.ico
C:\WINNT\system32\AWM226.exe


Start KillBox.
Go to the File menu, and choose Paste from Clipboard.
Verify that you've done this properly by clicking the dropdown-arrow next to the Full Path of File to Delete field. The filenames you pasted will be found in there.
Select/tick the following:
* Delete on Reboot
* End Explorer Shell While Killing File
* Unregister.dll Before Deleting" if it's not grayed out.
Click the RED X button.

Click [Yes] at the 'Delete on Reboot' prompt. Click [YES] at the Pending Operations prompt.

Run another scan with Panda and post that here.

Hi Lee,

So how's everything now?

Your logs are clean. If there aren't any more problems, you should be all set.

Reset hidden/system files and folders

Windows 2000
===============
Open My Computer.
*Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
*Select the View tab.
*Select the Advanced settings box option.
*Select the Hidden files Folders.
*Deselect the Show all files option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Click OK.

In light of your recent issue, I'm sure you'll like to avoid any future infections. Please take a look at these well written articles:
HOW DID I GET INFECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE? http://forums.net-integration.net/index.php?showtopic=3051
THE ANTI-SPYWARE TUTORIAL http://www.greyknight17.com/spyware.htm#prevent
MAKING INTERNET EXPLORER SAFER http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Making_Internet_Explorer_Safer-tut102.html

Be very wary with any security software that is advertised in popups or in other ways. They are not only usually of no use, but often have malware in them.

More information and downloads are available at the following links:

Spyware Blaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
Spyware Guard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.

Things are looking real good!!!! I have not experienced any re-starts of the computer since we've been cleaning stuff up! Thanks a ton for all your help!! Thanks for the links to keep stuff clean...

The only unusual thing that I have noticed... when I boot up, my CPU is blasting at 100% for a good 2-5 minutes, maybe more.. I noticed my services task is sucking up a majority of it at 70-75, and a reg.exe taking up 20-25.. I'm not sure if this is normal? I only noticed it when I started having issues?

Again, thanks for all the help Ried!!

Ok Lee, let's go a little deeper to make sure.

Download StartDreck http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/StartDreck.zip

Unzip to its own folder and start the program:
Press 'Config'
Press 'mark all'

Uncheck the following boxes only:
System/Running Process -> List Modules
System/Drivers -> NT Services
System/Drivers -> NT Kernel- and FS-drivers
Press 'OK'

Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file (default is the same folder as the application)

Post the log in this thread.

Hi Lee,

I'm not seeing anything wrong in this log. I've consulted with another Analyst/Moderator. Please do the following and see if this resolves the issue:

Make sure to update Windows and Internet Explorer at http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v5consumer/default.aspx?ln=en-us. Your system should be at Windows 2000 SP 4 and Internet Explorer 6.0

Let us know. :smile:

Ried -

Sorry I haven't replied.. .been tied up the last couple of days!! Thanks for looking further into it. I'll look into upgrading to sp4/ie6.. I get nervous doing that, I've tried to update w/my old computer before and messed things up - on 98 I can reinstall the old registry with scanreg/restore.. but w/2000 I don't know how to get it back..

Thanks again for all your help on this issue!!! I appreciate all your support -you've bee great! My main reason for posting has been resolved!

Thanks Ried!!

D-link REG.EXE problem which causes 100% CPU Usage

O4 - Global Startup: D-Link REG Utility.lnk = C:\Program Files\AirPlus G Wireless Adapter Utility\Reg.exe

A useful Links I found that explained the D-link REG.EXE problem which causes 100% CPU Usage:
http://www.computergripes.com/dlink.wifi.g.card.html

If you have an older laptop with a Texas Instrument PCMCIA adapter and install the D-Link AirPlus G Wireless Adapter Utility, it will hang up and never finish the one time D-link registry update (REG.EXE). Although your wireless adapter may still work, REG.EXE from the D-link subdirectory will execute each time you reboot, and gets hung up again causing your Win 2000 services.exe to use 90-100% of your CPU time. After I removed the D-link REG.EXE from my windows startup, windows and D-link DWL-G630 worked fine.
D-Link phone technical support knows about this problem, but has no website search information on their D-link REG.EXE, or FAQ reference to this problem. They just say your hardware is not compatible and you have to update you PCMCIA BIOS, not that REG.EXE is hanging up you system and cannot be detected by Virus scan or Ad-ware remover. D-links does not provide any website support to notify you of this known REG.EXE problem or a D-Link REG.EXE removal tool.

> Check the Device Manager:
> 1. Click on Start.
> 2. Right-click on My Computer.
> 3. Click on Properties.
> 4. Click on Hardware tab.
> 5. Click on Device Manager.
> 6. Click on the plus sign on PCMCIA.
> 7. Check the PCMCIA. (Texas Instrument, PCMCIA)
