I have exactly the same problem!

I am using a laptop with XP and have Norton (not updated :thumbsup: ) I immediately got offline (turned off wireless) and am now on the desktop). All my instalations have been via a thumbdrive

My symptons were almost as described in the first post, but have since changed a bit.
1. I lost access to to SpyBot and Adaware, but manged to get the new version of Adaware via a usb drive and it scanned - found nothing.
2. Norton - found nothing
3. Installed SUPERantispyware and it kept crashing. Eventually manged to get it to run in Safe Mode and it found heaps of stuff and I quarantined them all (see list below). It fixed the popups and removed the links on my desktop. I still have the warning message as a backdrop and the VIRUS ALERT next to everywhere there is a time code (eg in the bottom right corner and in all the file tags)
4. downloaded Rogue-remover - it found nothing
5. Downloaded Smitfraudfix butcan't run it - the virus I have seems to prevent it starting
6. Same for mbam
7. same for HiJackThis
8. can't install AVG
9. can no longer start in safe mode - freezes at /mups
can no longer open notepad


I have had a few messages of corrupt files appear at restart - can't remember what they were though as I wasn't expecting to have to post here....


Can anyone help?

Hello fishnut I have split your topic to it's own,ALWAYS the best approach.
{Mod Note: Split away from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic149378.html}


Rename the Smitfraud fix folder to something like Soup to try to fool the malware. If it runs only do the First step and post that log back here.
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.

If you're using Windows 2000/XP, please download XP_CodecRepair.inf and save it to your desktop.
  • Right-click on XP_CodecRepair.inf and select Install from the Context menu.
  • Note: To download the .inf file, go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save XP_CodecRepair.inf to your desktop.
  • Then log off or reboot to apply the changes.

Thanks so much boopme.

'Soup' worked a treat and I can run the scan, but the report starts trying to open Notepad and then whatever is getting to me crashes it.

How do I get around that?

Does it save a report file elswhere that I can move to my desktop and open?


Is it worth me tring to rename mbam and try to open that?

thanks again

I've managed to grab some of the messages.

Windows style message

Full screen error report that has had both of these messages as the cause of windows being cancelled (but then opens anyway)

XP_CodecRepair.inf removes certain policy restrictions the infection created.

Please print out and follow the instructions for using SDFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to use SDFix".
-- When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
-- Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus and any anti-malware real time protection before performing a scan.

When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply. Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.

So, the codec got rid of the 'VIRUS WARNING' next to all the time codes and gave me some of my start menu back - thankyou!

However, Notepad is still blocked.

I get a windows style message:

Data Execution Prevention - Microsoft Windows
To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program
Notepad


I ran search and could not find a Report.txt

update:

I change the name of the mbam installer and got around the block - it found heaps of stuff and cleaned it all. I reboot in safe mode (the hijacked desktop was gone) and have successfully run SDFix. Here is the report (spelled Rapport.txt :thumbsup: )

What should I do now?

OK you're getting a bit confused . You successfully ran the Smitfraud Fix part 1. Good,and that is Rapport text.. We're done with that now. You can delete /uninstall it.

Now do the SDfix in Q7's post. When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.

Have you also done the Codec fix Q7 recommended?

I should add that my computer seems to be working normally again (perhaps even faster than before :thumbsup: ), but I am worried that there might be some stuff hidden away that hasn't been cleaned yet.

Hope the SDFix log above can help a bit???
Anything else I should do?


btw, I have to say that this site is amazing. Really - everyone that puts time into it to help poor souls like me should be congratulated :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: THANKYOU!

There are no shortcuts or guarantees when it comes to malware removal. Sometimes it takes several efforts with different tools to do the job. Even then, with some types of malware infections, the task can be arduous.

Rescan again with MBAM, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply. Make sure you update to the most current database before scanning again. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.

IMPORTANT NOTE: One or more of the identified infections (Clbdriver.sys) was related to a rootkit component. Rootkits are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques (backdoors) as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

Although the rootkit was identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the rootkit has been removed the computer is now secure. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read "When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?" and "Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?".
