Hello,

I saw a topic on just this subject, but it seems that each case may require a different approach, depending on logs etc. So I thought I'd submit my case to the experts :thumbsup:

Something changed the background on this laptop, causes popups and changes the IE homepage periodically. We've deleted files like C:\Windows\promo5.html so they don't show up in the popups any more, and we've deleted the wallpaper. The website we get directed to is <http://antispyspider.us/130>

Another message which comes up is "Somebody trying to access to your PC and collect privacy information. Download Antispyware applications." with the title "Your computer is not protected against spyware!"

In the bottom right corner a fake security triangle appears with "Windows Security Manager Your computer is running slowly due to malware activity"

What should I do?

Mod Edit: Disabled active link to a malicious site and moved to more appropriate forum.~ TMacK

Hello are you running XP or another system? Also tell us your Antivirus and spyware tools,thanks.

Please start with this scan.

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 Scan" 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.

Thanks for the info, I'm busy today, but I'll do it tomorrow.

The laptop is running XP, has spybotS&D and some registry thing (which seems useless). There is some anti-virus program, I'll post it when I boot it up.

I'll be cleaning out the heatsink too - appears to be clogged, and the thing overheats during a scan.

OK, going through it now.
Anti-virus is Trend Micro (currently deactivated because it's been installed on too many computers).

Registry thing is Uniblue RegistryBooster.

Running a scan now - I forgot to clean the heatsink out first, so I may be doing this again in a few minutes :thumbsup:

Followed the instructions, the scan went through successfully, and I've cleaned out that heatsink now. It was totally clogged! Things are looking a lot better now...

Did you reboot the computer after using MBAM? If it encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you need to restart the computer so the malware can be fully removed. Failure to do so will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. Your log indicates some files will be deleted on reboot. If you have not rebooted, make sure you do this. When done, rescan again with MBAM, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Also, let us know how your is computer running and if there are any more signs of infection.

The computer seems to be running very well. There aren't any more popups, messages etc. I did a reboot and full scan, it found one more thing. I have to say I'm very impressed with that scanner. Is it good for most cases? I haven't used it before.

Here's the log.

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.
