Hi BC -

I'm using XP SP 3 and IE 7.0.5730.13.

While surfing last week, I hit a site that caused the computer to auto reboot and to install what I assume was some kind of rogue spyware. I updated and ran MBAM and it appeared to successfully resolve the problem.

A week later (last night), the computer auto-rebooted again (again while surfing the net), and installed what appeared to be more rogue antivirus crap. I was unable to update MBAM, so I booted into safe mode and ran it. It found several items which it was able to remove, and instructed me to reboot, which I did, into regular XP mode.

It appears that search engines have been altered (font size on Google is different from my setting), and I cannot connect to MBAM's site, Bleepingcomputer.com (I'm on another machine now) or several other remedial sites from Google or Yahoo's search engines. However other sites I regularly visit, i.e. news, etc, are accessible as usual.

My IE 7 homepage was changed to what appeared to be Google. IE would occasionally display h**p://scan.scannerantispyware.com/243/3 instead of the site I was searching for and displayed a "memory scanning" screen.

The file delself.bat was placed on the desktop, which I deleted.

I see Antivirus XP 2008 and Register Antivirus XP 2008 in the left portion of the Start menu.

System Restore does not appear to work (I attempted to go back to a previous restore point).

I scanned with Trend Micro PC cillin (version 12.7.1019, engine 8.900.1001, pattern version 5.629.00), which found TROJ_FAKEALER.CL (C:\WINDOWS\system32\wini101954.exe), which it was able to Quarantine, and which I subsequently deleted from the Quarantine bin.

I can download updates to remedial utilities from this backup PC, but not the infected machine.

Looking forward to your suggestions. You've been a great help in the past, about a year ago.

Thanks,

BV

I think we can clean this out.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • 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, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Hi boopme -

Thanks for your, and everyone's noble efforts here on BC. Everyone should seriously consider donating to this forum in support of its valuable service.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am unable to update MBAM on my infected machine, however, I did download it on this backup PC and loaded it onto the infected machine. Here's the logfile:

Ok that is progress and this a=is atough piece of malware. Please run SDFix

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
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, script blocking and any real time protection programs 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.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • 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.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Great news.. I there are no more synptoms then....

Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.

Completed. Would switching from IE to Firefox help prevent these situations in the future?

Firefox is a much safer browser. Please read these topics listed in Post #10 by quietman for more info,

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry829374
