Hi dublon


Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).


Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.


Please download and install AD-Aware se.

Click Here on how setup and use it - please make sure you update it first. Don't run yet.


Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it; save it to your Desktop. We may need it later.

This setup contains the free as well as the plus-version of the ewido security suite. After the installation, a free 14-day test version containing all the extensions of the plus-version will be activated. At the end of the test phase, the extensions of the plus version are deactivated and the freeware version can be used unlimited times. The purchased license code of the plus version can be entered at any time.

Ewido will auto-udate. Don't run yet


Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.


Run Ewido full scan. Save the scan.log.


Clear out the files in the Prefetch folder. Go to start> run> type into the box Prefetch and delete all the files in that folder.


Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an check in the boxes, only next to these following items:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C8B2A36-3DB1-42A4-A3CB-D426709BBFEB} - (no file)

O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {7697DB96-5DA3-44F2-BC97-AD35E5F4CEDC} - C:\WINDOWS\assembly\GAC\System.Management\acdisk.dll

The program will ask you if you want to reboot; say No each time until the last one has been pasted in whereupon you should answer (Yes.)



Let the system reboot as normal.


Please download, install and run this disk cleanup utility called Cleanup version 4.0!: http://downloads.stevengould.org/cleanup/CleanUp40.exe

It will get rid of any malware which may be hiding in your temp folders ( a common hiding place). You will also regain a massive amount of disk space. Here is a tutorial which describes its usage: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial93.html

Check the custom settings to your liking under options, but be sure to delete temporary files and temporary internet files for all user profiles. Also, cleanout the prefetch folder and the recycle bin.When the scan has finnished click the close button

When prompted the system will log off to let it clean out the remaining files. when the log screen shows log back on and continue the fix.


Please run the following free, online virus scans.

This is totally ridiculous!!! Long story short (as I had edited my previous post and my damn computer froze) :angry:


After pressing F8 on startup... I get a window saying Please select boot device:

Removable Dev. Hard Drive or ATAPI CD-Rom. I chose Hard Drive then hit F8 again... finally got the screen with the safe mode choices... Hit Safe Mode... Fine I said...Then I got a log on screen Administrator or myself.. I'm both.. but either one I chose I get this black screen with Safe Mode written in all 4 corners and it stalls.. Nothing.. what the heck am I doing wrong?????????????????? :help: :help: :help:

Hi dublon


Safe Mode written in all 4 corners, yes you are in safemode it does take some time to run?


If you suspect it has hung > Click on start > Then run > now type into the box explorer


Let me know if that works.

Well... I have come a very long way since Friday night... but to answer your question.. I wasn't going into safe mode properly.. As I had never gone there before I had no idea what I was doing. I can build websites and do stuff like that but the "inner" functions of the pc... I'm null! I was just getting the black screen with Safe mode in the 4 corners.... I wasn't seeing my task bar on the bottom...My F8 key was not working properly. I finally got into safe mode through Run... using MSconfig, then going into the boot.ini......then I clicked on safeboot... (I found that on another site...) :blushing:

Anyway my problem is now solved. Long story short:


I ran the programs that you suggested... the scans... finally got rid of the winfixer screen... so I thank you very much for that but.. and this is where I ran into very serious problems.... when I ran the cleanup! program... I ran it on Standard settings... It saved me 187 MB of space... Super I said, then I logged off then tried to log back on again.... and that was it!

It cleaned so well that it cleaned all of my boot files, so Windows would not boot up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :blink: Sooooooooooooo the next morning we went down to the PC technician... who in turn got me back up and running...checked for any left over bugs... downloaded all of the security files including the both service packs... so I'm up to date and secure.. I hope... I also took advantage and bought myself 512 of SDram... so I now have 768 MB of ram... and WOW.... very cool!! (One of the suggestions made by the Pitstop scan...


I would just like to warn people though, to be very, very careful running that Cleanup program!!!! Read the instructions properly and slowly, and don't do it when you are tired!!!


Now... I have Ad aware SE running, Spybot running, Microsoft antispy ware running. and NAV... Is there anything else I can do to insure that I don't get another bug??? The pc technician was telling about a new anti virus program from Russia..... Kaspersky and apparently its cheaper than Norton and way way better.... Does anyone here know anything about this program... Is it really that good?


Again thanks for helping me get rid of the Winfixer problem!! Much appreciated!!! :)

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use). Click Here


It Prevent's the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.

Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.

Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.

Consumes no system resources.


Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.


It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.


These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.

1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox.



2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

You can download Sun's newer JVM for Windows at http://java.sun.com/getjava/index.html.

http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp Windows (Offline Installation)


After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats.


Have a nice Day.
