Dell Dimension B110
Windows XP
Version 2002 Service Pack 2

A while ago I found I was having a number of pop-ups and unexpected websites pushed to my browser. After a bit of poking around in different forums I tightened security on internet Explorer, downloaded Windows Defender, Spybot Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware, Avast, and CCleaner and thought I had the problem addressed.

A recent scan identified that I had Adaware:win32/ZenoSearch on the computer. I did more research and downloaded and ran Spyware doctor which indicated a number of other infections the most serious (according to the scanner) included:

rootkit.agent
Trojan.purityscan
trojan.agent.aoy
trojan.downloader.tiny.id

These infections were not picked up by Windows Defender, or Spybot. Both indicate that no immediate threats were found.

I found and followed all the instructions on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/ (Installing Sygate personal Firewall) and now have a hijack-this log to post in the hopes that I can finally rid myself of this nightmare. After installing Sygate firewall I am getting messages indicating that certain files are attempting to access the internet via ports. Hopefully it is OK to give one time permissions as it was the only way to get to this forum. Thanks in advance for any help that is offered.
Dave

Hello there and welcome to Bleeping Computer's security forum.
My name is David, I will be helping you with your log today.

It is a good idea to print off these instructions. There is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. It is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and that you don't miss out any steps.

Please set your system to show all files.
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: Hide file extensions for known file types
Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
Click Yes to confirm.

Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {B24A33D0-0A52-42A7-AE24-DC491A437E72} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [{EC-C7-78-83-ZN}] C:\windows\system32\lrdsrngr.exe CHD003
O20 - Winlogon Notify: opnopml - opnopml.dll (file missing)

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Now reboot into Safe Mode.
This can be done tapping the F8 key as soon as you start your computer
You will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode.
Make sure you choose the option without networking support.

Using Windows Explorer, please locate the following files/folders, and delete them if still present:

C:\windows\system32\lrdsrngr.exe

I want you to clean your cache and cookies from your internet explorer.
There are a few infected files which need to be removed from your system.

° Close all instances of Internet Explorer .
° Go to your control panel and open "Internet Options".
° Click on the "General" tab.
° Click the "Delete Cookies" button, then the "Delete Files" button.
° If prompted, place a tick in the "Delete all offline content" box and click OK.

Also, please clean other Temporary files and Empty the Recycle Bin

° Go to start and click on the "run" button.
° Type the following in the box --> cleanmgr and click ok.
° Let it scan your system for files to remove.
° Make sure only Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are checked.
° Press OK to remove them.

Please download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe to launch the application.

Follow the prompts that will be displayed on the screen.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.
When finished, it should produce a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.

David,
Thank you for the help. It is sincerly appreciated.

I had the following issues while following your instructions. Hope I did the right thing.
C:\windows\system32\lrdsmgr.exe was not present.

When running Combofix.exe I am receiving messages from Avast indicating a trojan is detected win32:dadobra-ey(trj). I disabled Avast to run the program.

When logging onto this site Windows Defender indicated that changes were being made to Internet Explorer. Name "Unknown" Alert Level "Unknown" I changed action to "Deny" to prevent the changes.


Combofix.exe

Hi there,

C:\windows\system32\lrdsmgr.exe was not present.

That's ok, it shows that the file has already been deleted.

When running Combofix.exe I am receiving messages from Avast indicating a trojan is detected win32:dadobra-ey(trj).

This is just a false positive, nothing to be worried about at all - combofix is safe.

When logging onto this site Windows Defender indicated that changes were being made to Internet Explorer.

This is fine too, we made some changes to the registry in the Hijackthis fix, so Windows Defender was just warning you. Although you did choose to deny, it looks as though it worked anyway.

We've just got a bit more to do before I let you go. :thumbsup:

Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {B24A33D0-0A52-42A7-AE24-DC491A437E72} - (no file)

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Please perform this online scan: Kaspersky Webscan
Note that this scanner will only work on Internet Explorer, so please use this browser for the scan.
Read the Requirements and Privacy statement, then select "Accept"
A dialogue box will appearing asking "Do you want to install this software?" Name: kavwebscan_unicode.cab
Select "Install" to download the ActiveX controls that allows ActiveScan to run.

When the download is complete it will say ready, click "Next"
Select a target to scan: Click on "My Computer"
When the scan is complete choose to save the results as "Save as Text"
Post the Kaspersky scan results in your next reply, along with a new Hijackthis log.

Hey there, just one more thing to complete..

Click Start, then All Programs, then Spybot - Search & Destroy and then Spybot - Search & Destroy.
On the left side, click "Recovery".
Select (place a check) beside ALL the backup files that contain quarantined items.

Click on the Purge Selected Items button.
A dialog will appear, stating that the backup will be removed. Click Yes.
When the Recovery window is empty, Exit Spybot.

Reboot a final time and let me know how the PC is running.
I see a clean Hijackthis log! :thumbsup:

Good work! We've just got a couple more things to do..

It is a good idea to print off these instructions. There is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. It is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and that you don't miss out any steps.

Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following if still present:

O4 - S-1-5-21-3739350658-4279239734-1225929123-1009 Startup: TA_Start.lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\lrdsrngr.exe (User 'Melissa')
O4 - S-1-5-21-3739350658-4279239734-1225929123-1009 User Startup: TA_Start.lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\lrdsrngr.exe (User 'Melissa')

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Open hijackthis, click 'config' (bottom right) Choose the tab 'misc Tools' on top.
Choose 'delete a file on reboot'. In the field, copy and paste the filepath a few lines below.
Click open. Hijackthis will tell you that this file will be deleted on next reboot and if you want to reboot now.
When asked if you want to reboot now, say Yes:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\lrdsrngr.exe

Allow the PC to reboot, if it doesn't do it automatically, please reboot manually.

Your Java is out of date and the older versions are being exploited by malware.
We need to get it patched up as soon as possible.
Click on start, then control panel, and then double-click on add/remove programs.
Search in the list for all older installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )
It should have next icon next to it: Posted Image
Highlight each and click Remove.
Then Download and install the newest version from here:
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Reboot again and post a new Hijackthis log to check.

Hi David,
Thanks again for the support.

The two items in the HijackThis log that were to be fixed were not on the HijackThis list so I was unable to fix.

I did not see lrdsrngr.exe in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\ directory. I did however still attempt to "delete file on reboot" process in HijackThis as you directed. The computer rebotted normally.

I only saw and deleted "one" older version of Java. I reinstalled the newest offline version (the 13.06meg file) from the site you pointed me to. Hopefully I selected the correct version as I wasn't sure which version (online or offline) was correct.

Either online or offline version of Java would have done! :thumbsup:
The log is looking clean, how is the system running?

That entry is a false positive, it is not infected at all, instead it's a part of Panda activescan.
It's safe to ignore it, there is not a problem to be worried with at all.

Glad I could help! :flowers:
The latest log is looking clean!
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will be reduced dramatically.

Use an Anti Virus Software -
* It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine.
* This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See this link for a listing of some on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
* I would recommend Grisoft's AVG or AVAST.
* These are the more secure and better ones.

Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

Use a Firewall -
* I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer.
* Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over.
* Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
* For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
* Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
* I would recommend ZoneAlarm as a firewall as it's easy to use.

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently -
* It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly.
* This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.
* If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Next, if they're not already present, I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (all free), and the updating of them regularly

Install Spybot© - Search and Destroy- Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option.
* This will provide real-time spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection.
* You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Lavasofts© Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware.
* You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot.
* A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware

Install Javacools© SpywareBlaster -
* SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer and Firefox settings and that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
* A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
* Click here for more info -->Computer Safety on line - Anti-Malware

Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly.
Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
:thumbsup: If you wish to learn how to use HijackThis to remove malware, you might like to join the Malware Removal Training Program!

If you have any addition questions just ask...
David
