Hi,

I'm trying to help my son in Australia with a problem on his computer. We've run AdAware several times and Spybot many times...we ran spybot at boot time too but the problem remains. Basically, when he opens IE to browse the web he gets pop up windows constantly. Sometimes they pop up even after IE has been stopped (it seems to restart IE and pop up more windows.

I had him capture some of the URLs the pop up pages are going to...I'm not sure if this is helpful, but here they are (I inserted the word "-DOT-" in the first part to make sure others don't accidently click them.):

Links edited out for security reasons--Trevuren

And one final note he was running Norton but has uninstalled it. He now runs NOD32 but there are references to Norton all over the log file. I'm not sure if that's harmful, but I don't think it should cause this behavior.

Your help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks,
Mario

Here is the log I had him send me tonight:

Hi MagicCaptain,

Step 1
Download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.
  • Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log and a HiJackthis log in your next reply
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall

Step 2
Please download the Norton Removal Tool from HERE and Save it to your Desktop
  • Close all programs and double click the Norton_Removal_Tool.exe
  • Follow the on-screen instructions
  • Restart the computer if asked
  • Then delete Norton_Removal_Tool.exe from your desktop
  • Now open the Program Files folder on your local disk ( normally C: )
  • Find and delete the following folders (if present)
  • Norton AntiVirus
  • Norton Internet Security
  • Norton SystemWorks
  • Norton Personal Firewall
Step 3
Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.
  • Close all applications and windows.
  • Double-click on DSS.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
Extra Note: When running DSS, some firewalls may warn that sigcheck.exe is trying to access the internet - please ensure that you allow sigcheck.exe permission to do so. Also, it may happen that your Antivirus flags DSS as suspicious. Please allow the Deckard's System Scanner to run and don't let your Antivirus delete it. (In this case, it may be better to temporary disable your Antivirus)

Step 4
Please post the following in your next reply
  • ComboFix log
  • main.txt
  • extra.txt

Here's the information you requested. Just to let you know though, Microsoft Defender was installed and run on the machine and it seems to have cleared the pop up problem we were experiencing.

Just in case though, and to help you close the loop out, I'm attaching the files you requested.
If there's anything else wrong with this machine, I'd like to know.

Thanks for your help,
Mario

I'm not sure I understand the reply... are those all things we should be running on the machine to stop attacks like the one we had?

Thanks,
Mario

Hello again MagicCaptain,

Before we begin, you should save these instructions in Notepad to your desktop, or print them, for easy reference. Much of our fix will be done in Safe mode, and you will be unable to access this thread at that time. If you have questions at any point, or are unsure of the instructions, feel free to post here and ask for clarification before proceeding.

Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.
Please enter Safe Mode by using the Arrow Keys and then hit Enter.

Step 1
I see you have BitTorrent 4.4.1 installed on your system.
While the program itself is legal, most of the files downloaded with it are not.
Also, quite often the files can be infected with viruses, malware, and other undesirable applications.
I highly recommend uninstalling BitTorrent 4.4.1 via Add or Remove Programs, but this program is optional for you if you choose to want to keep it.
See HERE for details on P2P file sharing programs.

Step 2
Please go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following (if present):

Screensavers Installer

Reboot into Normal Mode

Step 3
Please re-open HijackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

O4 - HKLM\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [vu2l] rundll32 "C:\WINDOWS\Downlo~1\vu2l.dll",Run

Now close all windows other than Hijackthis, then click Fix Checked. Close HijackThis.

Step 4
Please go to UploadMalware to upload a suspicious file for analysis.
  • Enter your username from this forum
  • Copy and paste the link to this thread
  • Browse for this filename: C:\WINDOWS\Downlo~1\vu2l.dll
  • In the comments, please mention that I asked you to upload this file for Atribune.
  • Click on Send File
Before you continue, make sure the submission is successful!

Step 5
Please download the OTMoveIt by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTMoveIt.exe to run it.
  • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy):

    C:\WINDOWS\Downlo~1\vu2l.dll
    C:\Program Files\Screensavers.com


  • Return to OTMoveIt, right click on the "Paste List of Files/Folders to be moved" window and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything on the Results window to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it on your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt
*If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately, you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine, choose Yes.
**If a reboot was necessary or you needed to Exit before posting the log, you will find a copy of the log at the root of the drive where OTMoveIt is installed, usually at :
C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles\********_******.log
(where "********_******" is the "date_time")

Click "Exit" to close OTMoveIt.

Step 6
Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report and the OTMove It log
