Computer Hijacked By ads234.com (MiDadDle) Help Please!

My computer has been hijacked by a site called ads234.com a/k/a MiDadDle.  Every time I try to search the net this site pops up and tries downloading unwanted information.  I went to my "Control Panel" and deleted MidAdDle from my "Add/Remove Programs".  It helped for a couple of hours but ads234.com is still on.  I ran scans using Ad-Aware and Spybot but it didn't seem to help.  I also downloaded Hijack This.  The following is a copy of my log:

Re: Computer Hijacked By ads234.com (MiDadDle) Help Please!

TotallyConfused,

I can see a few problems in your log, but I need to see the entire header for version info. If you would, post back the entire log, including the header.

Thanks,

Mike.

Re: Computer Hijacked By ads234.com (MiDadDle) Help Please!

TotallyConfused,

Ok, let's see what we can do...

-

Reboot into "Safe Mode".


First, let's go to Add/Remove programs and remove(uninstall) the following:

  • WildTangent
  • eScorcher anti-virus


Now, let's run HiJackThis, then:
 
1.  click "Config..."
2.  click "Misc Tools"
3.  click "Delete a file on reboot"
4.  browse to, then double-click on each of the file(s) below, one at a time:
 
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\supporter5.exe
  
5.  when prompted to "Reboot Now", after selecting each file, select "No"
 


Now, let's open a command prompt and unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following:
 
regsvr32  /u  Mc0x3.dll
 
It's ok, if these aren't found.
 


Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:
 

O2 - BHO: Search Help - {E8EAEB34-F7B5-4C55-87FF-720FAF53D841} - C:\Documents and Settings\Jim\Local Settings\Temp\Mc0x3.dll
 
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [eScorcher] C:\Program Files\eScorcher\eScorcher.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [supporter5] C:\WINDOWS\System32\supporter5.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WildTangent CDA] RUNDLL32.exe "C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CDA\cdaEngine0400.dll",cdaEngineMain
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [jk] C:\documents and settings\jim\local settings\temp\jk.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Works Calendar Reminders.lnk = ?
 

Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".
 


Locate and delete the following items(s). Make sure your able to view system and hidden files / folders:
 
folders...
 
C:\Program Files\WildTangent
C:\Program Files\eScorcher
 
-
 
Run "Disk Cleanup" and allow it to remove everything it finds.
 
-
 
Reboot your computer normally.
 

 
Post back a new log.
 
Mike.

Let me know if you think it's gone.  If it is gone is there any way of preventing it from coming back?  Thank you so much for your help!

Re: Computer Hijacked By ads234.com (MiDadDle) Help Please!

Laura,
 
I think we've got it! - Just glad I was there to help.
 
-
 
Let me get some information on this file:
 
C:\WINDOWS\System32\qttask.exe
 
Just use windows explorer to locate it, then right-click on it and select "Properties". Click on the "version" tab, and post back info on the following:
 
comments
company
internal name
original file name
product
 
I believe this file is legit, just need to double-check.
 


Have HiJackThis fix this entry:
 
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=localhost:8081
 

 
Let's do some cleanup...
 
1.  Run Disk Cleanup and allow it to remove everything it finds.
2.  Run AdAware SE and Spybot S&D, and allow it to remove the residual traces of this infection that HiJackThis can't fix.
3.  Disable, then re-enable system restore; with a reboot in-between. Then immediately create a new restore point.
 

 
Without knowing how you picked it up, I can only offer some general advice:
 
1.  Don't download anything that your not sure about what it is, or from a non-trusted site.
2.  If it offers 'free' stuff that a person would normally have to pay for, be extra careful.
3.  Make sure your internet settings are setup to optimize browsing security.
4.  Be careful where you browse.
 

 
Be sure to post back the info on the above file when you get time, and have a great new year!
 
Mike.

Re: Computer Hijacked By ads234.com (MiDadDle) Help Please!

Hi Mike,

I'm happy to say the clean up work was done and there's still no sign of ad234.com.  Yippie!!

I did as you asked regarding the C:\WINDOWS\System32\qttask.exe file.  There was no information supplied regarding the comments, company, internal name, original file name or product on that file.  Everything was blank.  Is there any other way to find the origin of that file?

My husband and I just wanted to thank you again for being such a kind person giving your time helping people in computer glitches like me.  I'm not technical at all with computers and had no idea what to do.  I couldn't have done this without you!  I wish you nothing but the best in life and hope you have a wonderful and safe New Years!

Re: Computer Hijacked By ads234.com (MiDadDle) Help Please!

Laura,
 
Great news!
 
Post back the file's size and creation date. I've just checked mine out and it's in the normal folder of "c:\program files\quicktime" and has all that information - I would consider that program suspect.
 
Let's rename "c:\windows\system32\qttask.exe" to "c:\windows\system32\qttask.exe_bad" for now, until we can figure out what that is.
 
-
 
We can always use a program called 'strings' to see what internal text it has, but we'd have to download that first.

You all are more than welcome! You did great!

Thanks guys!,

Hi Mike,

The file's size is 28.0 KB (28,672 bytes) and the creation date is Monday, August 18, 2003, 9:54:33 AM.  I renamed it c:\windows\system32\qttask.exe_bad.

Have a great day!
