Hi,
after I got back access to my system (1000 thanks to quietman7, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic138329.html), I don't really know if my system is clean now. Avast! is report some issues in a set of restore points but nothing outside those. Ad-Aware doesn't find anything, but you never know....
Here is my HJT-Log, I'd appreciate if someone could have a look over it. Some of the files get weired results on the automatic results interpretation.

Hi

There're still signs of Vundo there.


1. Download combofix from any of these links and save it to Desktop:
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you (C:\ComboFix.txt). Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Combofix should never take more that 20 minutes including the reboot if malware is detected.
If it does, open Task Manager then Processes tab (press ctrl, alt and del at the same time) and end any processes of findstr, find, sed or swreg, then combofix should continue.
If that happened we want to know, and also what process you had to end.

If you have problems with Combofix usage, see here

Hi Blade81,
I got an error popping up 4 times about a dll (always the same C:\WINDOWS\system32\cbxxvsq.dll) not being a correct image, anyway it continued and finalized with the log below. Atleast this time it didn't kick me out like after the first run, but I realized that the first executable ComboFix.exe which I used previously was 3kb bigger than the one I got from your link. I really hope you can help me sorting this out.

Hi



Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

Folder::
C:\VundoFix Backups

Registry::
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\defender]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\keyboard]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\newname]


Save this as
CFScript


Posted Image

Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe
Then post the resultant log.


Combofix should never take more that 20 minutes including the reboot if malware is detected.
If it does, open Task Manager then Processes tab (press ctrl, alt and del at the same time) and end any processes of findstr, find, sed or swreg, then combofix should continue.
If that happened we want to know, and also what process you had to end.

The following are recommended third party programs that are designed to keep your computer clean. A link as well as a brief description is included with each item.
  • Comodo BOCLEAN <= Stop identity thieves from getting personal information. Instantly detects well over 1,000,000 unique, variant and repack malware in total. And it's free.
  • Download SpywareBlaster
    Spyware blaster is a program that stops known malicious activex controls from installing on your computer. It works by changing settings in your registry. It makes
    kill bits
    in the registry, so that certain activex controls can't install.
    If you don't know what activex controls are, see here
    You can download SpywareBlaster here here
    SpywareBlaster tutorial
  • Download iespyad
    It puts many bad webpages on your restricted zones list. This means that you can still view the
    bad
    webpages, but the webpages cannot do certain things (such as use javascripts and cookies).
    If you need help understanding how it works, there is a tutorial here
    Download it here
  • hosts file:
    • Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them.
    • In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages.
    • We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages.
    • However, it can slow down certain computers.
    • This is why using a hosts file is optional!!
    Download it here. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial here
    If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    • Click the start button (at the lower left hand corner of your screen)
    • Click run
    • In the dialog box, type services.msc
    • hit enter, then locate dns client
    • Highlight it, then double-click it.
    • On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    • Click ok
  • 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 more info, check this webpage out.
    See here to choose one

Just a final reminder for you. I am trying to stress these two points.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!! Make sure you do this about every 1-2 weeks.
Make sure all of your security programs are up to date.
Run the spybot and adaware regularly. (Once or twice a week minimum.)
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.


Once again, please post and tell me how things are going with your system... problems etc.

Have a great day,
Blade :thumbsup:

Hi,
so until here TAHNK YOU.

Before I do anything, here a brief description of my remaining issue(s):
- ASCII characters >127 are displayed the wrong way (some squares instead of usual 'umlaute' in OE)
- some charcters are using wrong sizes, like Nero displys the playing time in a font size that make it hard to read anything.
- my desktop cannot access (actually it can access but does not execute double-clicks on anything inside) directories containing ascii >127 anymore, my laptop has no problem with that
These issues beame apparent since I got back access to my system in first place (see above). I have no clue what happened and resulted in this, but it is not really nice and giving me a headache as I'm working on both systems usually.

So what do you recommend to continue? I don't want to delete everything now and then I have to download everything again.


Thanks again for your help.

Hi

Since none of those seems to be malware related (at least directly) I recommend you open a new topic for your remaining problems here. :thumbsup:

Hi,
So do you recommend me to follow your advise above and to delete all the fixing tools first, before I try to find solution for my other issues?

Sorry to ask but as I said, I don't want to download all that SW again if required.

Thank you very much for your patience until now,

AbuRaouf

Hi Blade81,
Well, I did the restore point deletion as described above and that seems to have worked.
Though, I'm not too happy with the results of that 'OTMoveIt2', it ran about 2hrs ending with an I/O Err 112. It deleted a few things but not everything. Actually nothing from my desktop, so I move those downloaded files to a flash disk for now.
Then I had to stop as my UPS blew off and I have to wait until I get that repaired, probably tonight. Here you never know.
I'm usually updating my system with the critical updates and I do not use IE on that PC, so I feel good about that part. Java, yepp, I will have to update that. And than finally I will have to get my firewall on this one up and running, too.

I opened a new topic as requested ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...howtopic=140289 ) and hope I will get something from there.

Again, thanks a million for your help.

Hi

You can remove those items that OTMoveIT didn't remove. It won't remove MalwareBytes Anti-Malware since it's a tool you can (and should) run occasionally.

Check that following folders are removed:
c:\qoobox
c:\sdfix
c:\combofix


Hopefully you'll get a reply :thumbsup:
