Can’t get rid of Nail.exe?

This is some nasty stuff. Here’s how to get rid of it.

Remove Nail/Aurora popups.

Look for the following lines in HiJackThis: (download here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html)

Look for anything resembling these entries and delete them:
F2-REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:WINDOWSNail.exe
O23-Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) – Unknown owner – C:WINDOWSsvcproc.exe

Download, install, and update Ewido trojan scanner (free version): http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

When installing Ewido , go to “Additional Options” and uncheck “Install background guard” and “Install scan via context menu”.

In Ewido, click update in the left menu, and click the “Start update”. You will be given an “Update successful” confirmation.

Exit Ewido. DO NOT run a scan yet.

Download CCleaner http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ and install. DO NOT run a scan yet.

Download the Nail/Aurora Spyware Fix http://www.noidea.us/files.php

Unzip it to the desktop. DO NOT run yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 before the Windows Logo appears.

In Safe Mode, double-click nailfix.cmd where you unzipped the package.

Run Ewido again.

Click the Scanner button in the left menu and click Start. Select clean if anything is found.

Run HijackThis, click Scan, and place a checkmark by the following item if found.

F2-REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:WINDOWSNail.exe

In HijackThis, click Fix Checked.

Run CCleaner.

Under “Internet Explorer”, uncheck “Cookies”
Click on the “Applications” tab and uncheck “Cookies” under “Firefox” if you are running Firefox Mozilla.

Click on Run Cleaner in the lower right-hand corner.

Restart your computer, and hopefully you should be clean of this pest!
