    Default smitfraud-c.toolbar888

    This PC had lots of bad stuff on it. I think I have cleaned up everything except smitfraud-c.toolbar888 which keeps coming back. This is the first time I have posted and the first time I have had to ask for help but I am stumped. Attached is hijackthis log. I ran smitfraudfix using instructions from your website but it did not fix the problem and the log for it is huge because I use the mvps.org custom hosts file and it listed every line of it.

    Thanks,
    madmike

    Welcome to the forum, is your version of Spybot completely up to date? The reason I am asking is this:
    http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=8668 This false positive is supposed to be fix, if you are up to date you can ignore it. You do have junk that need to go and it looks like it is mostly dead stuff, let's remove it and see how it goes.

    Looks to me like you had a Vundo infection, if I need to see the Smitfraudfix log later, you can edit out the host lines before posting it, we will see.


    1) First do this: Open Hijackthis.
    Click the "Open the Misc Tools" section Button.
    Click the "Open Uninstall Manager" Button.
    Click the "Save list..." Button.
    Save it to your desktop. Copy and paste the contents into your reply.

    2) How to make files and folders visible:
    Click Start > Open My Computer.
    Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
    Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
    Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.
    You may reverse this for safety when we are finished.

    3) Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune
    http://www.atribune.org/content/view/25/2/
    Save it to your Desktop. We will use this later.

    4) We need to disable your Windows Defender Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.
    Open Windows Defender, Click on Tools, General Settings.
    Scroll down and uncheck Turn on real-time protection (recommended).
    After you uncheck this, click on the Save button and close Windows Defender.
    After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable Real-time Protection again.

    5) Open HijackThis and choose "Do a system scan only" then check the box in front of these line items:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0CAD80BE-41C6-42EF-8DC9-DB4B8C602913} - C:\WINDOWS\Registration\vddca.dll (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: vddca - C:\WINDOWS\Registration\vddca.dll (file missing)

    Close all programs but HJT and all browser windows, then click on "Fix Checked"

    6) RIGHT Click on Start then click on Explore. Locate and delete these items:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ldgkkrub.dll <<< delete that file if there

    7) Run ATF Cleaner
    Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

    Restart the computer and post the uninstall list, a new HJT log and any comments you think will help.

    Thanks

    Default steps taken

    pskelley,

    First off thanks for helping me, I am not a novice but I am no expert either and I am stumped.

    Notes from your instructions:

    I am running Spybot 1.4 with latest detection updates of 2007-03-07, it shows it is current. It is giving the smitfraud-c.toolbar889 finding on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Araf15.

    The only symptoms I am currently seeing is long monitor blinks but I told a friend of mine it was like this machine had a beacon that was attracting spypware and adware, I've been cleaning it up for days. This was my son's machine and it was protected by F-secure which his ISP provided. F-secure said it was clean but it wasn't running right and when I put on Avast it had lots of problems. I read good reviews on F-secure but I would not recommend it.

    In step 4 I couldn't shut down Windows Defender from my id even though it has administator privilidge, I had to reboot to safe mode as administrator to turn it off.

    In step 6 I did have ldgkkrub.dll but it was in use or protected and I couldn't delete it, I went back to safe mode administrator id and deleted it.

    Here are the logs you requested:

    Thanks for returning the information and the feedback, I am sure you saw what the folks at the Spybot forum had to say about that toolbar, we will do what we can then it might require a registry edit to remove it?

    First, let me say the HJT log appears clean of malware, that item you removed was no doubt a trojan:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search The hackers change the names so often even google can't keep up.

    Uninstall List: I am looking for security issues and malware products, it's a great chance for you to look for programs no longer needed.

    Hijackthis 1.99.1
    HijackThis 1.99.1 <<< may be a glitch but if it is installed twice, delete one copy.

    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11
    I may be wrong, but would you open the Java Console in the Control Panel, click the update tab and check for an update.

    All in all this looks very good. I was hoping to spot something. I will say this. I also use Windows Media Player and I see you are running several other media players, if you do not use them you may want to consider uninstalling them, save some resources and free up some space.

    Now that we have removed that trojan, and a bunch of other junk, I am wondering if the computer has improved in it's performance? If we still have the same issues, then I need to start with a look at a report from Smitfraudfix. It is important that you use the newest version, delete all verions onboard and download it fresh from here:
    http://siri.geekstogo.com/SmitfraudFix.php follow only these instructions:
    Search:
    Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
    Select 1 and hit Enter to create a report of the infected files. The report can be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

    If I am correct, running Search will change nothing, but if we need to run Clean, it will clean the hosts file. In the event we do need to move to that, you will want to make a record of the hosts file you have set so you can return to it when we are finished. For the C:\report.txt you may edit out all hosts files items, please place a line telling me you have done this.

    Let's see what this tells us, if it does not help and problems persist we will have to start looking for other hidden malware, perhaps even a hidden rootkit infection?

    Thanks

    pskelley,

    I think I am clean. I ran spybot, deleted the problem, rebooted and ran spybot again and it did not show up. PC seem to be running good.

    You were right, I had Hijackthis installed twice and I fixed it.

    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11 is current, I check it. It was one of the items I had found and updated earlier.

    I'll review the media players and clean them up.

    I have a question. On my old Windows ME system I run Avast, Spybot, Adaware, Zonealarm and a custom hosts file and have no problems.

    On this XP system I have Avast, Spybot, Adaware, Zonealarm, a custom hosts file and Windows Defenfer (which is currently deactivated) and I saw a recommendation that I should add Spyware Blaster. Have I got the right things ? Too much or too little ? Do I need to add Spyware Blaster ? Should I ture Windows Defender back on ? Appreciate some guidance.

    I think I am fixed. Could not have gotten here without you. Thank you very much.

    OK Madmike, that sounds good. First, Smitfraudfix scan is clean. I am going to post links from experts, once you have reviewed them, if you still have questions post them and I will try to answer them. Just a little feedback, I have run SpywareBlaster/SpywareGuard and IE-Spyad on all of my computers for years. I also run Spybot S&D and Ad-aware (probably one to many there, since they do about the same thing but since they do not run, they only use disk space of which I have plenty) We know to run one good antivirus program and one firewall, but the jury is still out on how many realtime spyware programs are too many. Windows Defender is new and free and if I was having malware issues, I might add it, but the programs I run block the junk from getting on and Spybot/Adware remove adware if it sneaks in and I have few other problems. See what the experts say, you are going to hears "layered" and that is a key.
    I don't believe you will want to make a change as long as Windows Defender does the job. Let's clean those System Restore files,
    System Restore does not know the good files from the bad. In case bad stuff has gotten into your System Restore files, follow the instructions in this link to get clean System Restore files. Turn it off, reboot then turn it back on:

    Default looking good

    pskelley,

    everything on this machine is looking good. I think you should carve another notch on your monitor (or do whatever it is you do when you score another success) and go ahead and close this incident.

    I sincerely thank you for your help Phil.

    As the problem appears to be resolved this topic has been closed.

    If you need it re-opened please send me or a forum staff member a private message (pm) and provide a link to the thread; this applies only to the original topic starter.

    Anyone else with similar problems please start a new topic.

    Thanks
