I'm spending Christmas at my mother's house and of course the first thing she needs me to do is to help fix her computer. I think she has a bunch of malware on her computer. Norton Antivirus isn't working either, says it has an internal error. Did a bunch of scans with ad-ware and spybot. The HJT log is listed below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello computermom57, and welcome to TSF


Please subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted. To do this click Thread Tools,
then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant Notification, then click Subscribe.


Please read this post completely before begining the fix. If there's anything that you do not understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding.
Please ensure that there aren't any opened browsers when you are carrying out the procedures below. Save the following instructions in Notepad as this
webpage would not be available when you're carrying out the fix.



IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU DON'T MISS A STEP & PERFORM EVERYTHING IN THE RIGHT ORDER.

----------------------------------------

The fixes we will use are specific to your problems and should only be used for this issue on this machine.

Please only use this topic to reply to. Do not start another thread.
If any other issues arise let me know.

The process is not instant. Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear.
Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear. So lets do this to the end!

Please make every effort to reply to my posts in a timely manner. Malware breeds malware and the longer an infection remains on a system, the more
likely additional infections will result.


----------------------------------------

DOWNLOADS


CLEANUP! version 4.52 – TEMP FILE CLEANING


Please download Cleanup! and install it. You will use this later.

Alternative link Cleanup Alt


*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temporary folders and does not make backups.



AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5



Please download AVG Anti Spyware

Use the link at the bottom of the page under "AVG Anti-Spyware Free for Windows"





  1. Install AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5.
  2. Double-click the icon on Desktop to launch AVG A-S 7.5
  3. On the top of the main screen click Shield
  4. Click the word active to change it to inactive
  5. On the top of the main screen click Update.
  6. Then click on Start Update. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  7. I also recommend changing the "Update interval" to something more reasonable like 12 hours.

----------------------------------------


SAFE MODE RE-BOOT

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Use the up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.
5) Login with your usual account. Make sure to close any open browsers.

----------------------------------------

FIXES AND DELETIONS


Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs) if they exist:

Wild Tangent<<<This is an online gaming package that is installed by a number of third party applications and even OEMs, ISPs and AIM.
The games aspect of this is really rather cool. The being installed without you asking for it isn't cool at all. They collect information
about you and your usage. We recommend uninstalling it.


----------------------------------------

Open HijackThis and click on 'Do a System Scan Only'. Check the following entries (If they still exist, make sure you do not miss any)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DDCM] "C:\Program Files\WildTangent\DDC\DDCManager\DDCMan.exe" -Background
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DDCActiveMenu] "C:\Program Files\WildTangent\DDC\ActiveMenu\DDCActiveMenu.exe" -boot




Please remember to close all other windows, including browsers then click Fix checked.

----------------------------------------

UNHIDE HIDDEN FILES

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Also make sure there is no checkmark beside Hide file extensions for known file types
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

----------------------------------------
Delete the following Files indicated in RED and Folders indicated in BLUE if they still exist.

C:\Program Files\WildTangent

----------------------------------------

RUNNING SCANNERS


Cleanup

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
Set the program up as follows:

Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files (if present)
  • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click on the Temporary Files tab and uncheck the box for Scan drives for files matching if it’s checked.
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program and DO NOT reboot when prompted.


AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5

  • Run AVG A-s with it's updated definitions: (...it's important that all windows must be closed)
    This scan can take quite a while to run, so be prepared.
  • Click Scanner
  • Click on the Scan tab
  • Click Complete System Scan to begin scanning.



  • When the scan is complete click Recommended Action and change it to Quarantine (1),
  • If not click Recommended Action and choose Quarantine from the popup menu. (2)
  • At the bottom of the window click on the Apply all Actions button. (3)

When done, click the Save Scan Report button. (4) then click Save Report As and save it to your desktop.

IMPORTANT : Don't click on the "Save Scan Report" button before you did hit the "Apply all Actions" button.



Note: DO NOT USE the computer while AVG A/S is scanning. If Explorer or the Control Panel are opened some malware types will
reinfect your system or will not be cleaned properly.

----------------------------------------

SYSTEM RE-BOOT

Reboot into Normal Mode.

----------------------------------------


ON-LINE SCANS

Perform an online scan with Internet Explorer with Panda ActiveScan

  1. Click on
    located at the bottom of the page.
  2. A "pop up" window will appear. * Please ensure that your pop up blocker doesn't block it *
  3. Enter your e-mail address, country, and state & click "Free Online Scan" * The download of the 8 MB Panda's ActiveX control will take place *

Begin the scan by selecting

  • If it finds any malware, it will offer you a report.
  • Please ignore any entry it finds and the offer to buy the program to remove the entry, as we will address this later.
  • Click on
    then click

* 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.
* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan


----------------------------------------

IMPORTANT!: NO WINDOWS SERVICE PACKS


Before we can proceed any further, please visit the Microsoft's Windows Update Page
and install ALL Critical Updates for your system (except service pack 2) (SP2).
SP2 should only be installed on a fully disinfected system. At the minimum install at least SP1a for both XP and IE6.

Without these updates your system is wide open to re-infection and we are both wasting our efforts to clean your system.
After we have completed your clean-up, we will have you return to the Windows Update page and install SP2.
We will also then advise you on how to better protect yourself online.

Please apply those updates BEFORE posting your next log. It is this forum's policy to stop the disinfection process until these basic updates are done.

If during the updating process you get a message that your product key is invalid ....then you may not have a legitimate copy of Windows XP.
Unfortunately it’s also this forums policy that we only address users with a legal copy of Windows XP.... therefore if you can not update Windows XP to SP1
we must stop the cleansing process here.

**Note** If you're having trouble locating the service pack SP1a here is a direct link to download it from..

http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/4/f/54f8bcf8-bb4d-4613-8ee7-db69d01735ed/xpsp1a_en_x86.exe


----------------------------------------

FOLLOW-UP

Please return and post these items in the order listed after installing the above service Pack:

Special tools
AVG A/S
Panda scan
A new HJT log run in Normal Mode


Please note: In order to properly see what is on your system, all HJT logs must be run in the normal mode

Please let me know how your system is behaving.
