Winfixer is not something I've downloaded but may have come from one of the dodgy sites I was researching when I accidentally clicked on it!

Hi Snorky :grin:

I'm not seeing Winfixer, or anything else 'bad' in your log. Please do the following;

Perform an online scan with Internet Explorer with Panda ActiveScan - requires Internet Explorer

  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 along with another HijackThis log.
* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

I suggest going to this site: http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary
You'll find information explaining what these processes are and whether or not they need to be running at start up, or continuously running in background for proper operation of Windows. :smile:

Sorry Reid - I'm always finding things that aren't there! :grin: I'm posting below steps taken so far. Microbell suggested posting an hjt log just in case, which I did.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NI.UWFX5] "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\WinFixer2005Scanner Install.exe"
was the entry I was querying as it wasn't in my last log and I didn't do it. Honest! Don't even know what that is. Is it supposed to be showing on my desktop or what? And anyone else who even walks within 10 feet of my PCs gets a clip round the ear (so to speak) so no-one else has put it there.

My post in General Security

Pre-SP2 install clean-up
-------------
Posted this question in the 'lodge' but it didn't like it and rejected me overnight (some problem with a data base excuse ) so thought I'd try here. I'm doing a cleanup before installing SP2 on my pcs and ran Ad-aware, Spybot, Trendmicro and Panda, Kaspersky which didn't work, and nothing was found. Tried Ewido and it found and cleaned 72 tracking cookies.

I'm just wondering now whether there's anything else to try or have I done enough cleaning.

Microbell's response

Snorky:

Can you download hijackthis (link in my signature) and post a log so I can have peek in case something was missed.

So that's the story of why I was posting. :smile:

And I was cheating really asking about the resource hogs. I'm very new to XP so not sure how to stop things running from start up without getting annoying messages about changing the start up program. Will wait for the book that Geekgirl recommended to arrive.

PS. I googled the entry and got nothing, so googled various bits and came up with 3 results for [NI.UWFX5].

:laugh: No, Snorky--totally my fault on that...was looking for the entry a different way.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. Again, you should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

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.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

Next, 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) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NI.UWFX5] "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\WinFixer2005Scanner Install.exe"

Delete the following file:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\WinFixer2005Scanner Install.exe

Reboot back into Normal Mode.

Run that scan with Panda anyway and post it here so we can be sure you're ready for the SP2 install.

In Windows XP, every time you use msconfig and disable or enable items at Startup, you'll get that annoying box when you reboot. Just click the 'Do not show this message again' box. :smile:

Thanks Ried - Did that and the entry is now gone although there was no folder to delete. My IE browser isn't working at the moment so unless there's a scanner using Firefox, I'll try again to run the Pandascan later or tomorrow.

Many thanks for your help.

What's wrong with I.E.? Are you getting any error messages?

Let's do this in the meantime:

Please empty any Quarantine folder in your antivirus program and purge all recovery items in the Spybot program (if you use it) before running this tool.

Download the Mwav virus checker at http://www.mwti.net/antivirus/mwav.asp (Use Link 3)

1. Save it to a folder.
2. Reboot into Safe Mode.
3. Double click the Mwav.exe file. This is a stand alone tool and NOT just a virus checker......so it won't install anything.
4. Select all local drives, scan all files, and press SCAN. When it is completed, anything found will be displayed in the lower pane.
5. In the Virus Log Information Pane......
Left click and highlight all the information in the Lower pane --- Use CTRL C on your keyboard to copy everything found in the lower pane and save it to a notepad file
*Note* If prompted that a virus was found and you need to purchase the product to remove the malware, just close out the prompt and let it continue scanning. We are not going to use this to remove anything...but to ID the bad files.

Once you copy that to a Notepad file...highlight the text and copy it here.

Hi Snorky,

To clean out those orphaned registry entries showing in Mwav, please download Ccleaner www.ccleaner.com Do not run it yet.

Upload this file C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\New Folder\Nics\Academy\my logs\Old logs\log 6.txt to http://virusscan.jotti.org/ and submit it. Wait for the analysis and post it here

Reboot into Safe Mode.

Click on the 'Issues' tab to clean registry. Be sure that box is checked to 'prompt to backup registry' in the Options>Advanced section.

Click 'Analyze', then 'Fix Issues'

Snorky - you should come acustomed to such procedures, as your training nears the end - you shall be expected to make such judgements on your own. Take for example, log6.txt which we asked you to upload to jotti:

The only virus scanners to flag it was Antivir & Kaspersky, which was bundled with mwav.exe in the first scan:

AntiVir Found HTML/Exploit.Mhtml
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Found Exploit.HTML.Mht (probable variant)
.

Since this was the only results, and since we know log6.txt of the practice range has no potential threat - we can rule this out as a false positive.

What is HTML/Exploit.Mhtml I here you ask -
This file has been detected because it contains an instruction which attempts to download and install a malicious program on your computer by using a security breach in Internet Explorer.
Kasperksy has likely recognised some of the 016's within in the log... so I assume.

Please download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work - http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/CleanUp.exe ) and install it.

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:
  • Empty Recycle Bins
  • Delete Cookies
  • Delete Prefetch files
    [X]Scan local drives for temporary files (Please uncheck this option)
  • Cleanup! All Users
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.

WARNING - CleanUp! will delete all files and folders contained within Temporary Directories. If you knowingly have items you would like to keep stored in these locations, Move them now!!!

Can I see a new HJT log now please, and perhaps a scan from Panda? Also - how is your system behaving now?
