    SpySheriff

    My irritating myspace junkie of a sister has been using one of my computers for the last month and ended up installing kazaa. Well, she also picked up SpySheriff and now I'm having trouble removing this thing. So far I went into safemode and ran adaware; SBS&D and AVG. Didn't kill it. Do people on this site help out with Malware? If I download hijackthis or some other program like it, will someone help me get rid of this thing? So far, got rid of the background and all that stuff, but the SpySheriff is still there.

    Thanks, I googled it too and found hijackthis. In fact, I already had it. There were some other sites that people post their logs on and people help them find the exploits. I just figured that people do that here too.

    Thanks. I ran it and got rid of the exploits that were told to be bad. Still there though. Man, it's one in the morning here. I'll give that link a crack and see if I can get this thing out before I sleep. Thanks for the help.

    Got it. Thanks the link worked. Also, went to this Coyote site that went over all the fields for hijackthis for me.

    Here is a copy of what I have now:

    hmm well i checked sophos for SpySheriff and it seems it has diff variants.
    but sophos gives u a good analysis of the rogue, like which keys it inserted, files, and behaviour of the malware.

    http://www.sophos.com/search/search-...rch=spysheriff

    check that link out.

    IMO, i would kill: O2 - BHO: AcroIEHlprObj Class - {06849E9F-C8D7-4D59-B87D-784B7D6BE0B3} - D:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\Reader\ActiveX\AcroIEHelper.ocx

    O3 - Toolbar: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - D:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\Installs\cpn\yt.dll

    because those are BHO ( browser hijack objects) and those arent good..... The only toolbar I have is the Google Toolbar so if i were you i would uninstall the msn and yahoo toolbars. The google toolbar is a BHO also but to my knowledge it doesnt do any harm to your system. and you also dont need the Adobe BHO because really how often do you use Adobe? you dont need it to run on your system all the time, just open adobe when you need it and close it when your done. when u get into Hijack This just put a checkmark next to the things i listed then click "Fix this" but, just in case make sure to make a System Restore Point before you do anything. goodluck.

    hmm no offense but id like to correct a minor missconception here..

    BHO stands for Browser Helper Object...

    Its just an add-on installed by programs to make u access their features easily via the browzer.. i.e. with Yahoo, u can check ur mail with a click of a button..

    but The Texan is correct, if u dont really NEED them, then dont keep them. coz one of em might be exploitable. As far as i remember, there WAS an exploit that uses Google Toolbar.
