A few days ago, I believe my computer was infected with something. I don't know the difference between Virus/Trojan, but most of my scans are popping up with Trojan alerts. The first time there were problems, Spybot kept popping up telling me that entries on my registry were trying to be changed. Symantec AV was popping up telling me that auto-detect had found problems, but they had been cleaned. Windows was popping up an error about stopping a working process (sorry I didn't write it down, and that particular problem isn't happening anymore). And when I opened IE, chaos broke loose. Every few seconds it told me there was no update available for the Surf Lite toolbar, and lots of new tabs kept opening with junk websites. If I run a google search and click on a link, it doesn't take me to the site, it takes me to some other search page (sorry I don't have more specific info for you).

I've run several scanners, each several times: Ad-Aware 2008, Spybot S&D, Symantec AV, and Windows Life OneCare Saftey Scanner (off of their website). They all were freezing mid-scan, so I've been running them in Safe Mode.

The Windows scanner made the problem better, but there are still things linger on my computer that I can't get cleaned. I just finished another scan with the same scanner and it's finding something called Win32/Alureon.gen!. There are several of these found, each with a different letter after the ! (e.g. Win32/Alureon.gen, Win32/Alureon.gen!J, Win32/Alureon.gen!P, etc). When searching things on Google, again, I came across your website.

I'm at the point where I want to just reformat my computer, but when I bought my computer, they didn't give me a disc with the OS on it, and so I don't know how I'd even do that. I consider myself pretty good with computers, but this has me flummoxed. I want my computer back to normal, and I'd appreciate any help that I can get! Thank you!

Have you tried Mbam yet?

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.

Out of curiosity, I looked at my registry at that entry that won't stay deleted. It says "rundll32.exe" and then gives the path to a file. Whenever I reboot my computer it's been popping up an error saying that it can't find that file. The file is supposed to be in a temp folder that I cleaned out a few days ago trying to get rid of this thing. I don't know if that's helpful information or not, but I thought that I'd throw it out there.

I'm not qualified to recommend registry editing. I would recommend to do 2 things
First try:
---------------------------------

ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

--------------

If it still persists, I would post a HJT log for our HJT team members to review
Here's instructions on how to post a log:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Then post the log here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
--------------------------

On a side note, MSServer is transfer mostly through portable devices such as thumb drives, ipods, etc

The ATF cleaner didn't fix it so, I will go ahead with HJT log. Thank you again for your time and your help! Most of it is cleaned up now.
