Well, I'm stumped. I've run SAS, ComboFix, MGTools, Spybot and others and they've not fixed the problem.

I get a process called K45083X.exe that runs, and it starts IE, which then gives a ton of pop-ups most annoying, audio messages like, "Congratulations, you've just won a free laptop/Wii/etc..."

I've tried deleting K45083X.exe from system32, but it keeps coming back.

Here's MBAM (which identified and supposedly deleted the spyware, but it keeps coming back) and HJT logs.

Thanks in advance.

Hello 0range,

Posted Image

I need for you to go offline completely and disable ALL your protective programs after you download ComboFix, but before you run it. Sometimes those programs interfere with it, and we don't want that! :thumbsup:

This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.

1. Download this file - combofix.exe
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please, along with a new HijackThis log.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Thanks,
tea

Save this as txtfile CFScript

Then drag the CFScript into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

This will start ComboFix again.

After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply together with a new HijackThis log.

How is it running now please? :)

Thanks,

Hello,

Yep, looking pretty good to me. :thumbsup: Some things to do.......

Please delete ComboFix and its accompanying folder C:\Qoobox. Empty your Recycle bin and reboot your computer.

AVG AntiSpyware is no more, so you might as well uninstall it. Use something like MBAM instead if you want to replace it. AVG AntiVirus needs updating to AVG8.

Your Java is out of date, which leaves your computer vulnerable.

Updating Java
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6_u_10.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove
    button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
Depending on the number of older versions you have still, you could gain back about a gig of space too. :)

If you have any other questions let me know. If not, then we're done. :)

Take care,
tea

That's strange, because I just updated it about a month ago. I reinstalled it anyway just to check.

Thanks for your help!
