    Question Smitfraud-C.CoreService.

    I ran Spybot S&D several times in the past few days. My little sister has been using the computer, so when it started to get popups and slow down extremely, I was concerned. Spybot found and got rid of Command Service as well as many tracking cookies from various places, but it can't seem to get rid of the three entries of Smitfraud-C.CoreService

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. The HJT log is posted below:

    Hello,

    I notice that you do not seem to be running Antivirus software and a Firewall. This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.
    That's why I want you to install them first!!

    Avira, AVG OR Active Virus Shield (uncheck the Security Toolbar during install) are good FREE antivirus.
    Never install more than one antivirusscanner or firewall on your system! Several together can give problems and decrease the reliability of it seriously!
    Comodo OR Kerio are FREE firewalls.

    Understanding and using firewalls

    Reboot your computer afterwards.
    After reboot, perform a full scan with your Antivirus and let it remove anything it is finding. Then reboot once again in order to delete files that were in use previously.

    Post a new HijackThislog in your next reply - then we'll start from there, because it really makes no sense otherwise that we clean this up manually if an Antivirusscan is not present which should be able to deal with most and prevent further reinfection.

    Hello,

    * Download Combofix to your desktop.
    Doubleclick combofix.exe
    Follow the prompts.
    Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

    When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a bit. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open, combofix.txt.
    Post the contents of this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.
    Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

    I downloaded Combofix as you suggested and ran it. It completed the scan, but after reboot it never came back up. I wasn't sure if rerunning it would be helpful, but I did get the HTJ log which is below. Let me know if I should run combofix again.

    Hi,

    I see from your log that Combofix was still running after reboot. You really have to wait till the logfile opens.
    Look on your C:\ if there's a combofix.txt present and copy and paste the contents here.

    also, I notice I have some old aol software running that doesn't affect AIM, I wasn't sure if this is a good thing since I can't seem to find any AOL program files... just curious
    Not sure what you mean here, but the aolsoftware.exe is a part of your AIM here.

    There is a combofix.txt file but it's not showing as a txt file, it's showing as a batch file. I'm not really sure whats going on...

    in any case, I did wait.. I actually left my computer alone for about 7 hours to make sure.

    Ok, do next please..

    Download and Save blacklight to your desktop.
    F-Secure Blacklight: https://europe.f-secure.com/blacklight/try.shtml
    (fsbl.exe - graphical user interface)
    Double-click fsbl.exe then accept the agreement.
    click > scan then > next,
    You'll see a list of all items found - if found, so don't worry it tells that there were no files found.
    In case hidden files were found, Don't choose for rename yet! I want to see the log first, because legit items can also be present there...
    There must be also a log on your desktop with the name fsbl.xxxxxxx.log (the xxxxxxx stand for numbers)
    I need that log later.

    Then, * Download Deckard System Scanner to your Desktop.
    • Close all applications and windows.
    • Double-click on dds.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
    • The scan may take a minute. When the scan is complete, a text file will open - main.txt
    • A folder (C:\Deckard\System Scanner) will also open which contains the main.txt and an extra.txt.
    • Copy and paste the contents of main.txt in your next reply. (Do not post the extra.txt - only post this when being asked) together with the log from blacklight.

    The F-Secure Blacklight Log:

    but the Deckard System Scanner stops right after like... 5% and displays the following error message:

    Funny things going on there...

    Anyway, let's see if Combofix runs in Windows Safe mode, but first, I want you to remove the current Version of Combofix and redownload it again from here: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe. This version is updated and also since I want to be sure that all components are present and your Antivirus doesn't delete related components... because I've seen this as well, that some Antivirus may flag certain components dropped by Combofix which results in the tool not properly working.
    Do not run Combofix.exe yet.

    Then,

    * Reboot into Safe Mode`: ( without networking support !)
    ┬░To get into the Windows Safe Mode, restart your computer and, just before Windows starts to load, tap the F8 key a few times.
    Choose Safe Mode from the menu that will appear and press Enter.
    If you can't get into Windows safe mode, using above method, please let me know. Don't force it by using other methods!

    Then run Combofix and post the log afterwards if present.
