I've read most of the posts regarding these viruses and nothing has worked. I've run spybot, adaware, and norton in safe mode w/ wireless off. It would pick up the viruses and delete them but they always re-appear on a new scan. Somehow I lost my restore points so that is not an option. I was also getting a box saying "Notice: If your computer has been running slower than normal, it may be infected...". System Integrity Scan Wizard was in the mix too.

I've tried combofix and that seems to have cleared up some of the issues, but i still got a "Abebot" box warning. After the scan I received a message "Error loading c:\windows\systems32\gvxcqfrp.dll. I'm not sure what that is. Also, my webpages are still randomly directed elsewhere. I have combo fix and Hijackthis logs, so please let me know if I should post. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. I really don't want to reformat my hard drive.

Thank you!!!!
Katie

PS - oh no, i got another pop-up just now from "Security System Protection Control Panel" that reads "Possible spyware infection detected - threat name TrojanDownloader.xs".

Hi Katie15... Is this an XP computer??
Run these tools and post back the scan log from each.
Tellus how things are running after these scans.

Please follow the instructions in our Tutorial. How to Remove WinFixer / Virtumonde
Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt

NEXT:
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

OKay, the first two solutions did not work, but I htink the malwarebytes got it. My only problem is I now have a new spyware thing on my system that is re-directing websites. I think it may be because my java is outdated? Should I uninstall java and then get the new version or is it simply an update?

OK I was a the last couple days and couldn't get back to you.
Yes your Java is outdated.
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 6...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "Multi-language".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u6-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
Next:
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
