Using Superantispyware, Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG, I picked up 3 fake SVC.host trojans the other day. I successfully deleted them (I thought), yet my computer is behaving strangely. None of these three anti-virus programs will now update (gives me an error message "make sure you're connected to the internet), and both of my browsers (IE and Firefox) have become extremely selective about what sites I can visit.

For instance, when I "google" for help with my problem and click on a link that I believe may contain helpful information, my browser is constantly redirected to random sites. Sometimes it's generic search pages or women's fashion or something, but most of the time I get the browser error, "Page cannot be displayed. Although it seems to be a valid site, please check your internet connection...".
In fact, I can't seem to access any page whatsoever that has absolutely anything to do with removing malware; forums, answer pages, major geeks, etc (I'm writing this from my desktop)

My browser security settings are fine, windows firewall is up and running (But I had to configure it to allow my anti-virus programs internet access (so I believe that my settings may have been switched by this infection)).

I've yet to find any other infection after running my anti-virus programs numerous times.

Also, my computer makes a little 'clicking' sound every once in awhile. It's a windows sound that I can't identify (I've went through the sounds in 'control panel' and can't find it), but it just comes out of my speakers randomly.
It actually seems like there might be someone on a computer somewhere that knows when I connect to the internet and is actively messing with me. And yes, my internet connection speed is slower then normal (sometimes much slower).

Here's my hijackthis file:

:thumbsup: to BleepingComputer.com

I want to apologise that it has taken so long to get back to you. We on the HJT Team are working as fast as possible to get your log answered.

If you do not still need help, please let me know, so that I can move on to other users who still need help.

Please take note of the following:
  • While a HJT Team member is working with you, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
  • Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" :).
If you would still like help, please follow the instructions below:

We need to create an OTViewIt Report
  • Please download OTViewIt by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
  • OTViewIt.txt <-- Will be opened
  • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized
Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner.
  • Please visit the Kaspersky Online Scanner website.
    Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.
  • Click on the Accept button and install any components it needs.
  • The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer
  • This will start the program and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
In your next reply, please include the following:
  • OTViewIt.txt
  • Extra.txt
  • Kaspersky's Log
