Spyware Help!

Hi mikki,

 

First of all, it is better to update to XP SP3.

 

Fix the following.

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://home.microsoft.com/search/search.asp

 

Fix the following and install the latest Java 1.6.0_17. Download and run JavaRa to clean the clutter of old java software.

O23 - Service: Java Quick Starter (JavaQuickStarterService) - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jqs.exe" -service -config "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\deploy\jqs\jqs.conf (file missing)

 

 

Check if the following is shown in your next start up, and delete if it is there.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CheckPoint Cleanup] C:\DOCUME~1\Administrator.YOUR-4F1261A8E5.001\Local Settings\Temp\cpes_clean_launcher.exe C:\DOCUME~1\Administrator.YOUR-4F1261A8E5.001\Local Settings\Temp\cpes_clean.exe

 

The following is said safe by users, but sharing files with P2P links is not safe at all. I would fix them if I were you.

O23 - Service: LiveShare P2P Server 9 (RoxLiveShare9) - Sonic Solutions - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\9.0\SharedCOM\RoxLiveShare9.exe

 

O23 - Service: Roxio Hard Drive Watcher 9 (RoxWatch9) - Sonic Solutions - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\9.0\SharedCOM\RoxWatch9.exe

 

I would also use an Anti Virus program instead of Spyware Doctor.

 

BTW, your HijackThis software is old, either use v2.02 or Beta 2.03 of HijackThis, which are available on the web.

 

 

Cheers.

Hi mikki, welcome to Iobit forum!

 

Please follow Enoskype's suggestions. Your system is pretty lean :-P.

 

Consider replacing or augmenting the spyware doctor with Superantispyware... it has a higher detection rate and is easy to use. You can find it here: http://download.cnet.com/SuperAntiSpyware-Free-Edition/3000-8022_4-10523889.html

 

There are many many choices for anti virus as Ennoskype suggests, you should be running at least one. Avira, Avast, and AVG are just a few good ones that are free. Each has advantages and drawbacks. AVG can be pretty "heavy" on your system (while scanning especially). Until you evaluate the options out there, I would install and run Avira in the meantime for protection right now. You can find it here: http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10322935.html

 

Hope you are having a happy holiday season!!

@Enoskype can help read my logs? though (i can read some of it) i think it's pretty clean but Combofix

detected and quarantined some nasty stuffs. I'll post Combofix Full logs later.

 

Combofix Deletion

 

c:\windows\system32\w32apiw.dll (0 bytes thus cannot be upload to Virustotal)

c:\windows\system32\win32.dll (uploaded to Virustotal and detected 0/41 result)

 

And win32.dll basically is this virus? http://www.avast.com/eng/win32mtx.html

Can anyone clarify on w32apiw.dll? google but not much info.

This seems to be fairly lean as far as I know usefullll.

 

I would fix the following.

 

O2 - BHO: Windows Live Sign-in Helper - {9030D464-4C02-4ABF-8ECC-5164760863C6} - (no file)

 

 

Although c:\windows\system32\win32.dll is an MS file, it is not a native XP file.

If you have not created by C++, it must have come with an installed program, I think.

 

The filename W32APIW.DLL was seen on 06.17.2009, and it is considered unsafe.

Threat name: Win32.X

Filename: c:\windows\system32\w32apiw.dll

Filesize: Unknown.Last seen 06.17.2009

Status: Known to be as unsafe.

.

This file can perform following behavior

- Usualy created by unsafe process.

- Registered as a Dynamic Link Library File.

- Usualy have random filename and refers to many versions of a dynamic link library.

- Can be injected/attached to the legitimate Windows process such as explorer.exe or other.

 

Also, please use the following to see if it catches anything concerning that file.

How about reformatting? so the WIN32.DLL consider safe? and also..

 

So W32APIW.DLL what kind of infection? i mean keylogger or something?

Note : W32APIW.DLL is 0 bytes thus cannot be upload to Virustotal.

Hello vman

 

 

How to remove cpes_clean_launcher.exe and cpes_clean.exe from your computer.

 

First, use Windows Explorer’s Search Function to find all locations of cpes_clean_lanucher.exe and cpes_clean.exe.

 

Second, use Windows Explorer to delete cpes_clean_lanucher.exe and cpes_clean.exe from all locations found and displayed in the Search Results.

 

Third, turn Off the AC Power to the computer for one minute, then turn On the AC Power to the computer and wait for the computer to reboot.

 

Fourth, confirm that the problem has been removed from the computer and things should function correctly.

 

From King

 

This is what I did to remove that problem from my computer.
