Hello

I have been having problems with pop ups from Celldorado and some other sites while not surfing. They pop up from IE while I'm using Firefox and I've tried deleting the file that runs it (737DF5b7.exe) but it keeps coming back. I have also scanned my computer with VundoFix which I read fixes Celldorado, but it didnt find any infections. I've tried every free anti-spyware program there is (Spybot, adaware etc.) but the pop ups are still coming back. I cant even play any games because the games are getting minimized due to the pop up window opening. Does anyone have any idea what this is and what I can do to fix it because its making me insane :thumbsup:

Thank you for your time...

I just scanned with Eset online scanner and it found the virus and wrote:

probably unknown NewHeur_PE virus (unable to clean - deleted)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\737DF5b7.exe

but I doubt this fixes it since I have deleted the file a couple of times now and it keeps coming back

Are you running XP??

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.
  • 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 may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Hello there is a bit of info fro ESET here .. http://www.eset.com/threat-center/pedia/system/prob_unk.htm

In the past the only solution for this was the HiJackThis forum. I was hoping ther MBAM may fix it by now but since nit please do this.. and post an HJT log.

Hi

I think I fixed the problem yesterday. I went to system32 and sorted out all the files after the date they got changed and found out that there were a file with a similar name to 737DF5b7.exe but with other numbers that was also changed on June 21th. I deleted both of them and the 737DF5b7.exe file stopped reappearing in the task manager and so did the pop ups. Thank you for your help and I'll come back and post a HJT log if it somehow reappears again. :thumbsup:

Anytime you come across a suspicious file like this, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
-- Then post back with the results of the file analysis.
