All,
I would appreciate whatever help you can provide to help me get rid of SpySheriff. I have followed some of the existing threads unsuccessfully.

I already went thought one cycle of recovering which took me nearly 6 hours.
At first it looked promising then SpySheriff took over again once I booted with Normal Mode.
I have installed on the infected PC the following:

Clean up
Ad-aware SE
CWShredder
Spybot S&D - cannot run it because I cannot connect to the network to get updates
Ewido Security Suite
kazaaBegone

I have started another cycle to attempt to cleanup and to this point I have run "cleanup" and Ewido".
I then ran HJT and this is the log file:

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

Currenlty I cannot access the internet from the PC and I am not sure if it is a problem with IE or some nework configuration corruption.
I am currently running in SafeMode but will not do anything until I hear some suggestions. I have another PC connected to the broadband which I can use to navigate and I can use to download SW and copy it to the infected PC.

Thx for whatever suggestions you can provide.

This appears to be a tricky situation. This fix will not clean up totally but it should resolve you connectivity issues.

Please download smitRem.exe.
You will need to transport it to the infected PC

Boot the infected PC into Safe Mode

CLOSE ALL OTHER PROGRAMS & ALL OPENED WINDOWS


Run a scan with HiJackThis & select/tick the following & click "Fix checked" :

If you have not done so already, please enable the viewing of Hidden files
From Windows Explorer, go to Tools>Folder Options> View tab.
  • Tick - Show hidden files and folder
  • Untick - Hide file extensions for known types
  • Untick - Hide protected operating system files
Click Yes to confirm & then click OK

Locate and delete the following folders, if present:
  • C:\Program Files\hcus\
Locate and delete the following files:
  • C:\WINDOWS\System32\kernels32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\vxh8jkdq6.exe

Run Ewido with it's updated definitions:(...it's important that all windows must be closed)
  • Click Scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan to begin scanning.
  • Click OK when prompted to clean files
With the first file it prompts to clean, select the option:
  • "Perform action on all infections"
  • .Choose clean and click OK.
Once finished, click the Save report button & save the report to your desktop

** Ewido scan would require at least an hour. I suggest that you go grab a cup of coffee & do something else while you wait for it to complete.

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on 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.


= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


Next go to Control Panel click Display>Desktop>Customize Desktop>Website>Uncheck "Security Info" if present.
