PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version: Internet Explorer V6.0
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



Hi!
For the last couple of weeks we recieved a not-very-nice virus called Searchmiracle.elitebar . When it started to get REALLY annoying>Sad, we downloaded Microsoft AntiSpyware, which it would temporarily exterminate, but when we turn on the computer again, the virus reappears!
What it does on our PC...
  • Installs a toolbar on the Internet Browser

  • Redirects 'Error 404' page to their own search page

  • Hyperlinks certain words like 'Spyware' 'Internet' and 'Games'

  • Occasionally it randomly redirects to p*rn

Anyway, below is my Hijackthis log-thingy...

Start by disabling System Restore, which is something you can re-enable after the PC has been fixed.
Right click My Computer and select Properties.
Click the System Restore tab and in there disable it. Apply and OK out.

Furthermore, make sure that Windows Explorer is set to show hidden files and folders. Click Tools/Folder Options -> View and check Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files


Now download the following programs:

CWShredder
Spybot Search & Destroy
Ad-Aware
VX2 Cleaner
Stinger
About:Buster <-- you won't use this one until after we've made some amendments to your logfile.
Cleanup! <-- you won't use this one until after we've made some amendments to your logfile.

Now go to the following online AV scanners:

Rav Antivirus
Trend Antivirus
Panda Activescan

Let all of them delete what they want. Write down what they fail in dealing with.

Then run and update CWShredder. Click the Fixbutton and click OK when the prompt CWShredder will shutdown any open Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player windows. Click OK to continue appears.
Wait for it to finish and then click Next and Finish.

Now install, run, update and scan your system with Spybot S&D.
When it's done scanning, check all entries that are marked RED and click Fix Selected.

Then install Ad-Aware and update it right away. Then scan and let it fix whatever it reports.
Then shut down Ad-Aware.
Then install the VX2 Cleaner and let it install into the Ad-Aware program folder.
Start Ad-Aware again and click the AddOns button. Double click the VX2 Cleaner in there and click OK at the prompt.

If your computer is infected

Start by downloading this attached removal tool:
Download Attachment: TheEliteToolbarRemoverV10.zip


Extract the zip file to your desktop and run it. Then let it work it's way through.

There's one entry that keeps on residing in your startup registry:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [etbrun] C:\windows\system32\elitemld32.exe

Let HJT fix it .

Now search for the file that the registry entry points to.

C:\windows\system32\elitemld32.exe

Make sure that Windows Explorer is set to show hidden files and folders. Click Tools/Folder Options -> View and check Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files.

That may be the only way that you can find the offending file.

Additionally, do an extensive search on all of your hard drive, using the Windows Search function.

The search argument should be as follows:

elit*.* <-- Delete everything you can find that way.

Now click Start -> Run and at the prompt type regedit and click OK.

Search for and delete the following entries (using the same colour codes as before, make sure you only delete the marked entries. You can navigate to them by pressing the + sign next to each registry folder.):

Before you start, here are instructions on How to make a backup of the Windows registry. Make sure you follow those directions to the letter.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Elitum
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\LQ
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Winrar\File List
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Winrar\Profiles

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{825CF5BD-8862-4430-B771-0C15C5CA880F}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81C3A}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{DBF33E89-1784-42AC-ADE4-A428F56550A3}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{A9B28EF6-ABF3-463B-A3D8-4D0D0BADFADC}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{CA9FC31A-6F35-4493-B629-E64BD6170A17}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{a74cd7de-ea6f-11d4-abf3-000102378429}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{a74cd7dd-ea6f-11d4-abf3-000102378429}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PLOT.PlotCtrl.1

Then close the registry editor.

Then click Start -> Run and at the prompt type services.msc and click OK.

Scroll down the list until you find YPCService - Yahoo! Inc.
Double click it, and from the pane that pops up, select the dropdown menu above the Start/Stop button and select Disabled from the list. OK out.

Now reboot and post a fresh HJT log, taken after everything has been done.

Good luck.

Brilliant work

Now for added security, go to JavaCoolSoftware and download Spywareblaster and Spywareguard.

Install, run, update and enable all protection in Spywareblaster. Then check for updates at least once a week.

Install, run, update and allow Spywareguard to start up with Windows. Then make sure that you check for updates at least once a month.

SWBlaster stops websites from sneaking 3rd party junk onto your system, while Spywareguard stops unauthorised browser helper objects (BHOs) from installing, until you give the green light.

Good luck;D
