Hello,
I was infected by Antivirus 2008 while Googling for a surf site. The link I clicked did not have anything in the description about virus protection. Once clicked it proceeded to take me to a site that included various pornographic photos etc. As I tried to close the windows it proceeded to set up shop on my machine. It continued to generate system messages in my system tray and when clicked on would pop up and proceed to do a fake scan that appeared to give you a bunch of results and ask me to buy antivirus 2008. I ran other programs to clean the registry and scan for malware but nothing worked. A friend recommended Combofix and I followed instructions and ran it last night. It completed the scan and generated a log.
Does this mean that my machine is now fixed.
As instructed by the forum I am not posting the log until asked to

Thanks in advance for any help I can get in this matter.

Hello and welcome. Are you using XP?
Let's check with this..

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 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.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Yes, I am using XP.

I have run Malware Bytes and am attaching the log.

I followed the instructions explicitly when I ran Combofix...creating a recovery file etc. It went thru without a hitch, I was not advised not to run it, however I see your point.

Below is the Malware Log. Let me know if you guys want the Combofix Log.

Thanks for the help.

Your MBAM log indicates you are using an older database version. Please update to the most current one. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Perform a new Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Also let me know how your computer is running and if there are any more reports/signs of infection.

Hi,
I ran the Malware Bytes again after updating, I am attaching the log. The "DM15" file BHO found and erased by this program was a file I had encountered earlier and was unable to remove it.

The computer appears to be running alright although apparently the problematic BHO was still there until this scan. There have been no recent pop ups of the antivirus 2008.

Thanks

Your log indicates some files will be deleted on reboot. 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 reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. If you have not rebooted, make sure you do this. When done, rescan again with MBAM and check all items found for removal. Then click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply. If you did reboot, then rescan again anyway and post a new log.
