Trojan.Agent and Tune Up

Post by Master on 18th April 2009, 4:00 pm

Hello Belahzur,
I have recently done a scan with Malwarebytes AntiMalware and I have found a trojan named Trojan.Agent. I removed it using Malwarebytes and did another scan, and everything is fine.

However, when I use any search engine and click on a link, it directs me to an AD website. I have to click BACK to go to the original or targeted webpage. I tried many ways to check what I have but I couldn't find a solution.

Here is my HiJackThis log:

Re: Trojan.Agent and Tune Up

Post by Belahzur on 18th April 2009, 4:47 pm

Hello. There are 3 common Google hijackers I know of, 2 are easy to remove, the other is easy but takes slightly longer to remove.

  • Open HijackThis
  • Choose "Do a system scan only"
  • Check the boxes in front of these lines:


    O18 - Filter hijack: text/html - {2e2b2dfd-e7de-4aff-b773-a8889fcd04b8} - (no file)
    O23 - Service: nProtect GameGuard Service (npggsvc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\GameMon.des.exe (file missing)


  • Press "Fix Checked"
  • Close Hijack This.

Since you know a bit about computer, are you able to run regedit? I need to know because one of the Google hijackers blocks out regedit/cmd and makes the computer feeze when you try to run it.

Let me know in your next post.

Ah, okay. It's a piece of malware known as Daonol.

You can run regedit, but it has to be renamed. Locate this file in bold:
C:\Windows\regedit.exe

Rename it to reg3dit, so it's now called reg3dit.exe

Once renamed, it runs fine. Now using the registry editor, locate this key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\drivers32

When you reach thet key, right click and Export it. Save it as drivers32.reg

Now open it in notepad and copy and paste everything inside it back here.

Please download the Pocket Killbox from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

1. Open the Killbox.
2. Under "Full path of file to delete", copy and paste in the following:

C:\WINDOWS\gowls.sky

3. Now change "Standard File Kill" to "Delete on reboot"
4. Press the Red X to delete the file.
5. It will ask if you want to make a backup of the file we deleted, select Yes to the prompt.
6. Now Killbox will try to reboot your computer, if it doesn't reboot it itself, then reboot it manually.
7. After reboot, do the following.

  • Now open a new notepad file.
  • Input this into the notepad file:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
    "aux"="wdmaud.drv"

  • Save this as fix.reg, save it to your desktop.
  • Double click fix.reg to run it.
  • Select yes to the registry merge prompt.

Let me know if you still have Google redirections now.
