    I've been a happy user of Spybot for years (thank you! wonderful product!). But now my Spybot (and AVG too) seem to only do 'fake' updates - they look like they go through the motions but don't really seem to update, because now they never detect anything at all that isn't ok (which I know isn't right). So I uninstalled and reinstalled, still no luck. Jochen kindly sent an email with a link to RootAlyzer and suggested I run it and paste the log here, plus pack the suspicious files. I'm not too technical (just enough to be dangerous) but I can follow most directions I packed the suspicious files but can't figure out how to attach them (suggestions?). Here are the deep scan results. Thank you so much!

    Tried again to attach the suspicious files, but couldn't (clicked on Manage Attachments, browsed, selected file and clicked on upload). First I got a message that a security token is missing. Then it's taking forever to upload files but Task Mgr shows that there's very low CPU utilization ... kinda like running fast but getting nowhere.

    I feel like the malware is somehow infected into my wireless network and causes me to get false readings and/or to interfere with what I'm trying to do. Whenever I logon to my home network (a-network) via 'Wireless Connection 4' another network shows up that has all weird symbols for its name. It seems like that network is somehow 'piggybacked' or attached to my a-network. By the way my laptop is XP.

    Here's my HJT log:

    Default

    we can get another look for malware with MBAM:

    Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) to your desktop:

    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

    Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

    Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

    If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

    Once the program has loaded, select Perform FULL SCAN, then click Scan.
    When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

    Be sure that everything is checked, and click **Remove Selected.**

    **A restart of your computer most likely will be required to remove some items.**

    When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt

    post the MBAM log in reply:

    Arrow MBAM logs after removing SpyBot and AVG paid version

    Shelf life, your help is appreciated very much. I ran MBAM a couple times, but here's the last time, after I had uninstalled both Spybot and AVG (the paid version which I recently purchased). AVG was crashing my system each time I tried to scan with it, so MBAM's results make sense. I allowed MBAM to fix the registry keys in conflict with Windows Security Center. There appear to be compatibility issues between the new Windows security center functions and AVG, so probably with Spybot too. I don't really know what to do now for ongoing protection. My computer seems to be running smoothly (except for the piggyback network trojan I suspect), but now I'm not protected. I had turned the Windows firewall on, but then turned it off since it seemed to be preventing me from getting to safe websites I use all the time (like Ticketmaster). I'm thinking of reinstalling Spybot first and then seeing how that goes. If that works ok, then maybe I'll try one of the lighter versions of AVG again - I had used the free version for years but lately it got weird and took 4 hours for scans, so I was hoping the paid version would work better. I'm sorry if I shouldn't talk about AVG here in SpyBot but those two programs always seemed to 'play well' together before. My laptop is older and only has 1mg memory so it can't handle these protection programs that bring all else to a halt.

    My gut also tells me I have some kind of 'piggyback' trojan whenever I sign on to my wireless network, as mentioned earlier. I think I need to figure out how to completely delete the existing wireless network configuration and create a clean one from scratch (I didn't set up the original one because I didn't know how, but with a little coaching I think I could do it now). Any advice/help is greatly appreciated. You people are so wonderful to help poor ignorants like moi.

    Default MS Security update deleted 22 updates per Belarc Advisor

    Well I guess I screwed up. After uninstalling Spybot and AVG I double-checked to see that all my windows patches were up to date and Belarc said I was missing only one. So I decided to install that one (maybe it was SP3? 4?). But now I ran Belarc again and it's tells me that now I'm missing 22 updates??? Here's what BelArc says (without the SW program key info!). I'm confused by this. Thanks.

    Thumbs up Installed all missing MS updates and clean copy of Spybot

    ... and all seems to be running pretty well Spybot updated properly (I didn't activate teatimer or the other realtime feature). The scan seemed to work properly as well. I'm going to live with this for a couple days and then see about reinstalling AVG. Maybe it was AVG causing compatibility problems. Thank you!

    ok good. Unless you practice 'safe hex' you really should have a AV solution on your machine. I would get AVg re-installed and updated and see how things go from there-- like you said maybe a compatibility thing. did you have tea timer or the immunization feature turned on before? You could try turning tea timer back on after avg is installed to narrow things down. You must have a router. Is your network password protected? This would be done to ensure nobody else with in the signal range of your router could join/use it. Other computers, if any are in range could 'see' your network but not be able to join or use your connection if your router is password protected.

    Default Reinstalled AVG 8.5, Crashed with IRQL message

    OK, here's where I'm at. Spybot was running smoothly. I've never used teatimer and not using it now either, on the advice of a friend (resource intensive and my old laptop only has 1mg memory). I have immunized my system now, although I didn't used to use that feature either. I did notice the following messages in the 'Ignore System Internals' area of Spybots settings - am including them in case they're meaningful to you:

    %JavaDir%\QTJava.zip Missing Shared DLL
    install.exe Wrong app path
    MsoHtmEd.exe Wrong app path
    winnt32.exe Wrong app path

    The MS updates for XP to SP3 seemed to be running smoothly also (I think these included some compatibility updates for my Outlook2002 which helps it work with Hotmail's latest version that is made for only Outlook2003 and 2007). Since all seemed smooth I reinstalled AVG 8.5. Decided not to install the Firewall part because it turns off the MS firewall and I don't want the nasty red warning sign on my screen all the time. I was able to get through the first full scan on AVG smoothly, so that was encouraging because I couldn't do that before without a crash. The results were good and all seemed to be well. And then last night my system crashed with a white error message on a black screen that said something about an IRQ L error? The message was kinda fast so I couldn't read it very well, but that's the type of crash message I was getting before, when all this started. I googled on that and read where that kind of message usually refers to drivers that are out of date. HP indicates that all my drivers are up to date. This morning I ran an MBAM Quickscan, results below. I did notice the following messages in the 'Ignore System Internals' area of Spybots settings - am including them in case they're meaningful to you:

    %JavaDir%\QTJava.zip Missing Shared DLL
    install.exe Wrong app path
    MsoHtmEd.exe Wrong app path
    winnt32.exe Wrong app path

    Any ideas what I should do to identify and resolve the cause of the crash? I assume it's going to keep crashing until I figure it out. Regarding my networking: yes I have a wireless router Netgear WPN824 on my DSL line and it's password protected. I still feel that it's been hacked somehow which is why I think I need to 'wipe the slate clean and start from scratch to define a new user network, but I don't know how. If there's a site you can suggest that explains how to do that I would be grateful for a referral. I'm afraid to delete the existing one and risk not being able to get online, because I have to be able to. Thank you so much for helping me!

    hi DreamCatcher8,

    Ignore System Internals'
    i believe these are just inconsistencies in the registry. you can ignore them.

    it turns off the MS firewall
    installing a third party firewall will turn off the MS firewall. you shouldnt be getting any warning signs. The windows firewall is sufficient for the purpose it was intended for--blocking unsolicited incoming traffic.

    there can be many reasons for crashes or BSOD, malware may not be responsible for this. there are web sites dedicated to BSODs

    http://www.updatexp.com/stop-messages.html
    http://aumha.org/a/stop.htm


    Is your network password protected?
    i didnt mean a password to log in to your routers web interface using http://192.168... what i should have asked is you router using WEP or WPA.
    a good place to start would be the routers manuf. web page;

    http://kb.netgear.com/app/home
    look on the right under 'most popular answers'

    Default Regalyzer finds vsmon files

    hi shelf life, thank you for the links (which educate me) and your patience. it's very helpful to know what is and isn't important.

    regarding firewalls, i was a happy user of zonealarm for a long time but i uninstalled it after compatibility issues arose with avg some time ago (on the advice of the guy who used to take care of my system for me). i understand i need a better firewall than the basic ms one, so i can monitor outgoing traffic as well as incoming. i purchased the fullblown avg 8.5 version with the firewall for that reason. the 'warning' message i was referring to is the resident MS 'shield' on the bottom right bar of my screen - the shield is usually yellow but turns to red when it senses a problem (such as the MS firewall being turned off, or no antivirus installed, or MS updates need to be installed). for example, if I turn off the Link Scanner or Resident Shield modules of AVG I have to live with the annoying MS red shield (i do practice 'safe hex' LOL and wanted to improve my system performance by turning off those features). i guess i'll have to learn to live with that and will reinstall the avg firewall module after i get the current crash problem resolved. i don't want to disable that feature entirely because it does prompt me when there are system updates i need to perform.

    last night i had another crash, but i think it was a black screen crash instead of a blue screen. it happened so fast i couldn't read what it said (is that recorded somewhere?) but it definitely was not saying the same thing as the BSOD message. i did observe that i was playing spider solitaire (giggle) each time the crashes happened but that's probably coincidence? this morning i ran the RegAlyzer tool again, results below. i read that vsmon files are from zonealarm so i'm thinking maybe the crashes are being caused by a compatibility issue between them and the MS firewall and/or the avg firewall. any thoughts on this? maybe deleting them will resolve? i have no clue what to do with the results ... suggestions welcome.

    yes i do have a wep key on my wireless router. i think my wireless network may have some kind of configuration problem and might be related to me having xp home edition instead of pro (maybe something to do with IPsec?). i'll see if i can figure out how to delete my current config and create a fresh one, based on the links you provided. my other wireless network problem started quite some time ago after the (paid) guy who used to take care of my computer had done maintenance work on it (like some windows updates) ... but after that visit my network never worked right again - it would disconnect me after a few minutes for a reason we could never figure out. hp gave me a net bios update but that didn't work. i finally figured out a work-around myself: after i'm on the wireless network i go into Services and turn off WZC and that solves it, though it's annoying to have to do that all the time. (back then i didn't know i could've just done a system restore, if he set a restore point). so i've learned to live with it, but would still like to solve the root cause of the problem someday because my wireless network used to work flawlessly once-upon-a-time. but that experience taught me that i should rely on myself and learn to take care of my own computer, trying to get smarter about these things, slowly but surely. it also taught me that MS updates are not always a good thing, which is why i had uninstalled SP3 after i experienced constant crashes from it the first time i installed. but these recent updates were SP2 to SP3 and it is running better this time, if i can just figure out how to eliminite these crashes now. there are fewer of them than before at least. hope you're having a good day shelf life. people like you are such a blessing to people like me.
