  2. The system was infected with the malware WareOut :

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\~\Winlogon\ "System"="kdagz.exe"

    The malware made those entries in the registry that installed DNS
    redirectors, essentially proxy redirectors, and the entire DNS process
    was compromised.

    * Fixwareout.exe will not harm a system that is not infected with Wareout *

    It removes the rootkit in Winlogon, removes the TCP/IP registry
    parameters that redirect DNS to it's own servers, and flushes the DNS cache.

  5. I'm not convinced that your system is free of malware.
    WareOut can set false proxy servers in the registry to prevent the
    system from obtaining updates.
    Please open the registry editor Start > Run > type in

    regedit
    Click OK or press Enter

    Navigate to this key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
    Click *on* Parameters
    In the right frame under Name, is NameServer
    What is it's ValueData ?

  7. I've been under the weather, too. No apologies necessary ... bourbon is
    though. <w>
    Here's some info on 208.67.220.220 - 208.67.222.222
    http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois.ch?ip=208.67.220.220

    http://freedomfinancialnetwork.com/

    Suggest you delete the ValueData for
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\
    NameServer
    Right click NameServer, choose Modify
    Remove both URLs for Value data
    Click OK
    Close the registry editor and restart the system
    Now try to access WU/MU

    All,

    I've been following this thread (and understanding very little of it) as
    I've recently had the 0x80072EE7 error. I bought my wife aPalm HandHeld for
    Christmas but was unable to sunchronise it with Window XP as the drivers
    weren't installed. Palm technical support directed me to Microsoft updates
    which is when I received the error message.

    I've followed the error resolution solution advised by Microsoft i.e. HOST
    file and the inclusion of '#' but this didn't work. I then went to Microsoft
    on-line technical support who - helpfully! - referred me to their on-line
    support (round in circles) I've sent them a response but have yet to receive
    a reply.

    Can you provide a solution? Please be aware that I'm a luddite when it comes
    to computers so any advice will need to be idiot proof and free from any
    techno jargon.

    Fingers crossed and regards,

    stusmudger

    Not sure if you guys figured this out but I ran across the solution.
    It is scamware that changes the DNS server details from automatically
    obtaining to using there own ip.

    Solution: Get to your Local Area Connection and click properties.
    Click TCP/IP then properties. Click "Obtain DNS Automatically".

    Also if you go to your reg. you will find this ip 85.255.115.18. This
    ip leads directly to the scammers and they also give details how to
    remove the software.

    Thanks to abosman for the clue in your post above.

    That's a symptom of a WareOut infection. Run a /thorough/ check for
    hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log to an appropriate forum.

    When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
    (http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use.
    It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
    assistance from an expert. **Post your log to

    analysis, not here.**

    If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
    isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
