gimme smileys??? sidesurf3???

Postby andyjamuk » Thu Mar 09, 2006 7:17 pm

Am having real problems shifting an adaware bundle from my system. When my pc loads windows I open task manager and I see a program called gimmesmileys.exe which I think is installing other programs, such as sidesurf3 and mousepad1. I have run windows deffender, mcaffe, and a program called prevx1 (am verysceptical of this as I searched for mousepad1.exe in my browser and got 4 hits and this compay prevx1 was the only company that was aware of this threat) after detectingand removing anything it found it restarts my pc, but it just seems to regenerate itself and coming back for more, like frigging rocky balboa.

Any 1 had experience of this threat?, please get in touch, pulling my hair out now, and I got to many games to fry instead of trying to fix my pc.

I picked up the virus from a download of Google Earth from a p2p site.

Hi Andy and welcome to the forums. Sorry it has to be under these circumstances.

The program or exe you mention does not bring up any hits via Google, so it may be something new. Lets run a couple of free scans to get a better idea of what's lurking on your system.

For starters, if you do not have them yet, please DL and run AdAware & Spybot Search & Destroy.AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy are 2 of the most trusted apps in the security area. They are both free, compliment each other nicely, and do not use a lot of resources. They can be found here:

Spybot Search & Destroy v.1.4
AdAware SE Free v1.06r

With AdAware and Spybot: DL, check for updates, then scan, repair/remove/quarantine anything found. Reboot before next scan with whichever app is next. The reason for running these apps, is to clean up some of the other 'crapware' on your PC, which, in turn, will make deciphering your HJT log, easier.

Then we use HiJackThis v:1.99.1zip.
DL the zip file to your desktop, then create a new folder on your C drive, called 'HJT' or 'HijackThis'. Then unzip the files to the new folder. When you run HijackThis.exe from C:\HJT folder and have it "Fixed checked" it will create a backup file of modifications to use if restore is necessary which is easily accessible.

Run the program, and press Scan. You will notice the Scan button will turn into a "Save Log" button. Save the log and Post that log onto this topic. DO NOT DELETE or modify anything yet, as some of it is needed to keep your system in proper working order.

If you have already run both Adaware and Spybot, just run HijackThis and we'll work from there.

OK andy, lets get some of the lesser bits of malware off your sytem and see how it works for Surfside.

Please print these directions out before proceeding.

Reboot, into safe mode, this way:
Turn on the computer
Immediately begin tapping the <F8> key.
Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the <Enter> key.

Also, enable the 'Show Hidden Folders' option, like this:
Click Start.
Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.
Click OK.

:arrow: Please go to Add/Remove, and if found, uninstall the following:
BitComet
SurfSideKick


:arrow: Run Hijackthis and look over the following entries I have listed, check the boxes next to them and press the "Fix Checked" button with HijackThis.

Thanks for replying and offering help. I have been following instructions from someone else, only because they were the first to contact me.

I am fairly sure its now gone, could you please just have a look at my latest hijackthis log and confirm to me that there are no traces left?

OK, andy for future reference it's a bit of a inconvenience when you have two people helping you out. You see, it's wasting the time of two helpers when one of us could be off helping someone else. Please try and remember that for the nest time you seek assistance with malware.

Your log appears clear, tho I still see Bit Comet in there. It's likely if you keep running a P2P application you risk re-infection. The choice is yours.

Now that you have regained control of your machine, lets keep it clean. Please follow the links below to ensure the highest possible level of protection against any further invasions. The links and the apps are some of the most highly regarded apps in the field of security/protection & detection. Run AdAware & Spybot at least once a week, depending on your surfing habits.
Spybot Search & Destroy v1.4
Ad-Aware SE Free v1.06r

With AdAware and Spybot: DL, check for updates, then scan, repair/remove/quarantine anything found. Reboot before next scan with whichever app is next.

SpywareBlaster & SpywareGuard
Both of these apps prevent installation of nasties and are proactive.
With Spyware Blaster and Spyware Guard, just DL, check for updates, enable protection, and your done!

To avoid known malware infested sites from loading in IE install IESPY ADS.
And MVPS Hosts File will provide another layer of protection.

And to prevent unknown applications from being installed on your machine inistall WinPatrolv9.8.1.0.

Tutorials for all can be found on my site as well.

Confused about which apps are good or not? Read about Rogue/Approved Anti Security apps

And just because you have security apps installed, they are useless unless updated regularly. Keep track of updates for ALL your security needs here:
Calendar of Updates

Subscribe to update alerts for all the above security apps here.

You can also see my own ongoing security testing with all the above apps proving how securely you can safe with them installed.

Happy surfing!

Alot of the lag depends on how much RAM you have. I would suggest you need 512 MB to run everything and have no noticeable lag. If you're running 256, then perhaps try running either Spybot or Windows Defender to see which will cause the least lag. They will both have active protection, providing you activate Teatime. Keep in mind of course, Defender being beta you're likely to see more false\positives with it.

The other items listed will not cause you any performance hits all. Host file, unless its very large maybe, but the MVPS hosts file isn't that large as yet.

IE-SPYADS uses no resources and WinPatrol use virtually nothing.

Good luck, let us know which of the two you decide to keep works best.
