Posted 02 October 2008 - 10:34 AM

I opened a file I obviously should not have. The background turned red and stated "This Computer is Infected." The clock went military and next to that it says "VIRUS ALERT." All my drives are missing and the start menu only has a few options. I was able to run an anti-spy I had on my computer but it did not work and I had to reboot. After rebooting, the computer loads to the desktop at which point the mouse will be free to move for a few minutes and then the computer freezes. I tried to run the computer in safe mode but it will not go into safe mode. I read about the malware removal but since I can not do anything when the computer loads I was wondering if there was some other option.

I have Windows XP Home Edition SP2.

Thanks in advance for any helpp.

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. Regardless 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.

-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

You may be in violation of school policy if you are using a school computer. Further, many school IT administrators place restrictions on school computers so you cannot download anything. I suggest you download from a computer belonging to a friend, family member, etc.

I was accessing the forum from a school computer because I could not on my computer, but I finally got it to work in safemode. I've run the scan many times and there's new infected files everytime. Like from a search engine, if i search youtube and click on the link, it takes me somewhere else.

Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is a hidden piece of malware which has not been detected that protects files (which have been detected) and registry keys so they cannot be permanently deleted. Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a hijackthis log for further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 9 there are instructions for downloading the HijackThis Installer and creating a log. This is an automatic setup version which will install the program in the proper location.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

most of the viruses i've dealt this week somehow got safemode infected and sometimes gives BSOD and sometimes it freezes your computer in multi-disc part. Try booting your computer to safemode with command prompt and run explorer.exe in command prompt. then run malwarebytes after that. it will again either freeze you if somehow the infection is in explorer.exe or in winlogon.exe, if it does... then your computer is really screwed up. The easiest way (for you) to get it running again is to reinstall everything.


Edit: you won't have internet in this mode, so you have to download MBAM and it's update from another computer

My computer will not let me install Adaware or SpyBot, perhaps because I am in safe mode. Also should I wait to download Windows Service Pack 3 till I can clear up the malware?

what error are you getting when you are installing those programs? it should give you installation problems even in safemode. no don't install sp3 yet because it will also change your installer files w/c could even give you more problems

I got SuperSpyBot to work, Adaware gives me "The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation," I did just post on the HijackThis thread so I'll see how that goes. Thanks for the help.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
