A couple of days ago i logged on to my gf's laptop and i realized it had been taken over by somewhat of a Trojan, and i use the term because ever since she unknowingly downloaded SpyAway, her Task Manager has been disabled and her desktop backround has changed.

Now this is not new i've seen something familiar a long time ago, but without the task manager disabling, at the time i was not shy about nuking my hard drive so i removed the problem from the source. However this time the computer is not mine and i dont have the right tools to solve this, I have runned SD and her antivirus (EZ Antivirus by Zone labs if im correct) which i dont think has much power. The one thing im missing is my Ad Aware Pro, but buying it is not an option specially for this laptop. So does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this?

P.S I have noticed in the HJT logs, the people who have been infected by this malware, also have WebHancer running, yes in my opinion they are related, and to at least stop the ads and pop ups, stop the process and get rid of it. It is vulnerable so Spybot SD. However this will not stop SpyAway at all.

Hello and welcome to Tech Support Guy.

My name is km2357 and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

I will be giving you a series of instructions that need to be followed in the order in which I give them to you.

If for any reason you do not understand an instruction or are just unsure then please do not guess, simply post back with your questions/concerns and we will go through it again.

Please do not start another thread or topic, I will assist you at this thread until we solve your problems.

Lastly the fix may take several attempts and my replies may take some time but I will stick with it if you do the same.

Step # 1: Download and Run HijackThis
Download HJTInstall.exe to your Desktop.
  • Doubleclick HJTInstall.exe to install it.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Copy/Paste the log to your next reply please.
Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
Don't have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Step # 2: Make an uninstall list using HijackThis
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.
5. Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad here on your next reply.

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. You are quite behind on your Windows Updates and Patches!!

The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection.
Click here to get WinXP SP1a: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en

Apply the update, reboot, then go to Windows Update and install all the Critical Updates (Note: Except for WinXP SP2)
Click here for Windows Update: http://www.windowsupdate.com/

After installing all the Patches and updates, reboot, then post a fresh Hijack This log.
