Problems with my computer...
« on: May 01, 2004, 04:43:29 PM »
Ok.... I have *censored* of a lot of things wrong with my computer i was wondering if anyone here could help me with them.


Ok heres my list:

1. My flash player will not play flash animations over the internet even though i have flash downloaded, i get a message saying: "Your current security settings do not allow Active x controls to run on this page"

2. My browser will sometimes redirect to random sites when i click on a link (I.E. Porn sites, search engines etc.)

3. I cannot register to certain thigns (Ie. Paypal registrations etc.) The screen just comes up that there is a problem with the page trying to be displayed.

4. I cannot sign to MSN or MSN messenger. It says somethign about not being to connect to MSN, and to try again later (this has been happeneing a good couple of months now.)

Thank you, I really appreciate the help.
Thank you all.

Lemming ;D

I have no doubt, for one thing, that your browser has been hijacked (another site is forcing itself to become your homepage and/or is redirecting you to their site). You do not say what your level of computer understanding is, so some of what I say you may already know. Just skip those parts.

My first thought would be to have you go to http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip and download the program HijackThis. Then, close all browser windows, including this one  When downloaded, unzip it, click the .exe icon to run the program, then click Save Log at the bottom of the window it leaves. When it finishes, it will leave a notepad window with that log. Highlight ALL of it (it is a long one), copy it (ctrl+c, or Edit>Copy from top toolbar), then come here to this same thread and paste that log. Do not delete anything yet, as much of what HijackThis will find is harmless and needed by your computer.

Someone who is qualified to interpret HJT logs will have a look at it and recommend what to do next. I suspect they will also have you download Spybot and AdAware and run those, too. If you have been hijacked by CoolWebSearch, they will have you d/l CWShredder and run it, too. However, I'm just letting you know some of what to expect. Don't do anything yet....just get the log posted. You probably have a number of things which need correcting, but let's find out what they are, first, so you don't remove the wrong thing.

Best....sierradad

Lemming, as I suspected, you have a nasty variant of the CoolWebSearch trojan. Unfortunately, I'm not qualified, yet, to interpret HijackThis logs.

Because of the way yours looked, I took the liberty of forwarding your log to a friend who is an expert at HJT logs and internet security. He is not able (time-wise) to join the forum, but has graciously agreed to help you through this (through me...I will send him your replies), and has agreed because you will have to spend some time at this.

It could work the first time through, but he suspects there will be several posts and a lot of action on your part to clear this up. If you follow his instructions, he can get your system cleaned out, and give suggestions on how to KEEP it clean. He goes by the name of "steamwiz," by the way, and is an authority on HijackThis. Here is his reply:

You have the latest CWS variant. There are so many random elements about it and hidden files that the shredder cannot be made to fix it, though many updates have been tried.

This thing mutates on a daily basis......there are so many variants of it, and an equivalent number of fixes.... we have to find which one will work for you.

Try this :-

Download three free programs and install them.

1. Taskinfo
http://www.iarsn.com/taskinfo.html (trial version works for this)

2. Killbox
http://download.broadbandmedic.com/VbStuff/KillBox.zip

3. CWSShredder
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html


Open Internet Explorer with the about:blank page.

Then open taskinfo program.

Look for “Internet Explorer” on the left side and highlight it.

On the right side, open the “Modules” tab.

You will see a list of .dll files.

Sort the files by Company.

You should see a few .dll files that don't belong to any company or don’t have any description. In the list should be both the malicious secondary .dll that is generated by the malicious core .dll AND the malicious core dll. Again, they should not have any legitimate company name or description.

Run CWSShredder. It will delete the secondary .dll that is generated by the hidden core .dll and all associated registry entries.

Run Killbox.

In the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste the following:

c:\windows\system32\(whatever your identified core filename is).dll

Note: You will not find the malicious core .dll if you search for it using windows explorer or the file search engine. It is hidden.

IMPORTANT: Click on the Action menu and choose "Delete on Reboot". On the next screen, click on the File menu and choose "Add File". Then it should show up in the window. If that's successful, choose the Action menu and select "Process and Reboot". You'll be prompted to reboot, do so.

After reboot, use the Taskinfo program again to check to see if the identified malicious .dlls are gone. Don’t forget to open Internet Explorer to do this.

Run CWSShredder again and/or updated ADAWARE program to remove remaining garbage.

CWS installs via the byte verifier exploit (Mostly) in M$ JavaVM so just surfing a page with an infected applet can install it with no user participation. So once you’ve run the above, it is vital that you go here, click Scan for updates in the main frame, and download and install all CRITICAL updates recommended

When you are done post a new log

steam

(EDIT) Note that I would recommend you copy and print out these instructions so you have them in front of you as you do this (END EDIT)

Sorry, Lemming....I forgot that ctrl+C doesn't copy the URL's. The word "here" means Windows Update

http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

Make sure you get all the CRITICAL updates....then you've covered that part (they are patches put out by Microsoft to plug up vulnerable "holes" in Windows).

By the way, steamwiz said you are very welcome....he's glad he could help. Within a day, he will review your new log and let you know if there are any remaining little "tidbits" you need to remove manually.  Also, I'll post his page about how to KEEP your system clean once it's finished.

OK, Lemming....here it is. Sorry for the delay, but steam got busy and couldn't get to it right away. Anyway, here's his reply:


Your log's pretty clean now.....just a little tidying up to do....

Close ALL browser windows (including this one) - run hijackthis and tick to fix (check the box next to) the list below.........when all are ticked (checked) click the Fix Checked button at the bottom. :-

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,HomeOldSP = about:blank

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present


Reboot

This particular hijacker is mutating daily, and has a habit of coming back after a day or so......but I think you nailed it....keep your fingers crossed for the next couple of days.

Here are steamwiz's suggestions for keeping your system clean:

Contributed by steamwiz (Note that lines in italics are my thoughts...not part of the original article)

There are many ways for someone to hijack your browser.  The hijacker could be a .dll file or an .exe file or a .reg file or a combination of any of these. It could be in the root C:/ directory or C:/Windows or C:/Windows/system or just about any other directory. There is no constant...everything is variable. The only certain thing is that it is getting through a security loophole on your computer, be it from security settings or lack of patches/updates.

(1) First thing to do....click tools...Windows update..... and download all critical updates.
     http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

(2) Second is to download and install Spywareblaster.
     http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

(3) Third download and install Spywareguard.
     http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html

These programs take up very little resources and run un-noticed in the background.

(4) Fourth download and install Spybot Search and Destroy
     http://www.safer-networking.org/
Always check for updates before running. Click the immunize button..... and while you're there (at this page) you can lock your homepage if you want to. As with an anti-virus program - check for updates at least once a week, with all the above programs.

(5) Fifth download Regprot.
     http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=regprot
It's so easy to use, you forget it's there. Once installed it just runs in the background. You'll forget all about it, until a dialer, hijacker, trojan etc, gets through your defences and tries to put a run key etc, in your registry - up pops a box asking if you want to allow the new key. Obviously you say no (make a note of the name and location of the file which is trying to run so that you can delete it) but now you've been alerted to something trying to sneak in behind your back and you can deal with it. If you install new software or some updates from Microsoft and the box pops up - you will ACCEPT the keys.

None of this can guarantee 100% that you won't be hijacked - but it will certainly go a long way.

(6) Make sure you have a firewall (Google search for download sites...free ones are in bold type).

These are popular firewalls:

Agnitum Outpost Firewall PRO
Agnitum Outpost FirewallFREE
Norton Internet Security
Norton Personal Firewall
Kerio Personal Firewall FREE
Tiny Personal Firewall
Sygate Personal Firewall PRO
Sygate Personal Firewall FREE
McAfee Personal Firewall
Black Ice Defender
Zone Alarm Pro
Zone Alarm Firewall FREE

If you like, you may compare them before you decide: http://www.agnitum.com/php_scripts/compare2.php (I use ZoneAlarm free firewall, but that is just my personal choice)

(7) Get anti-virus software.

Here are two good, free A/V programs:

AVG Anti-Virus -- http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_dwnl_free.php

Avast Anti-Virus -- http://www.avast.com/i_idt_153.html

(I use Avast...I had AVG, but had trouble downloading the updates. They just had too many people using it....if that problem is fixed, it is a good A/V program....they both are)

Hmmm....that's a new one on me. Here is something you can try. It may fix it, but won't hurt even if it doesn't:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Then, click Internet Explorer once to highlight it and click the Add/Remove button. From the window that opens, choose Repair Internet Explorer, then OK. See if that helps.

Lemming, I believe we have taken care of the original problem(s) with what you've already done. I'm really thinking this should be a new post, with a new topic thread ("IE Error Message," or something like that). It would help for you to try again, and write down EXACTLY what message you get in the error window, then start the new thread with that (be sure to mention you use XP). There could still be an IE Repair option available in XP....I just don't know where to look for it. Perhaps another member who uses XP will know what you can do. If not, maybe I can "nose around" a few places and see what I can find out. Sorry I can't be of more help, here, but I'm sure there is an answer.
