Posted 26 November 2008 - 07:07 PM

I have been reading up on this site for several days now and have not been able to fix my problem as of yet. I have been looking at the DNS hijacking as the main problem.

My computer is running Windows Vista. The last time it updated was the 6th of November. At that time I was playing with a couple different Anti-Virus programs along with Anti-spyware programs. So I think I received this trojan during that time. (Crack sites are loaded with that stuff :thumbsup: Stupid me)

But basically this is the story:

When I try to update windows I receive the error code: 80244019. When I try to update Windows Defender I receive the error code: 0x80190194. I cannot update any anti-virus software at all. And like the other threads I have read, when I go to microsoft.com and try to get help on there I am redirected to msn.com.

I have installed and ran Malwarebytes' Anti-malware. I have ran it several times in safe mode and normal. The first time that I ran it I got notified that I was in fact infected. The log file is as follows:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.30

Windows 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1

Folders Infected:
C:\resycled (Trojan.DNSChanger) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Files Infected:
C:\resycled\boot.com (Trojan.DNSChanger) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.


So then I ran a full scan to make sure that it was cleaned up. Results were that the computer was clean and no malware was detected.
YES!!! I fixed it... or so I thought. I went to update windows and received the same error code. So I think to myself that the trojan is hidden somewhere re initiating itself, so I ran the quick scan again. Nothing found. Full scan; nothing found. I have installed and ran SuperAntivirus as well with nothing being detected.

So I was reading that maybe I had to go into cmd and do a ipconfig /flushdns.. but when I do that I come across the error "The requested operation requires elevation." This confused me because I am already at the highest elevation (C:>)


I am really looking for a few ideas to try to see if I can reclaim my computer.

Many thanks in advance!!

Please run Part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Disconnect from the Internet and reset your router with a strong logon/password so the malware cannot gain control before connect again. Many users seldom change the default username/password on the router and are prone to this type of infection.

Double-click smitfraudfix.exe to start the tool again.
Select option #5 - Search and clean DNS Hijack by typing 5 and press "Enter".
After running SmitFraudFix, a text file named rapport.txt will have automatically been saved to the root of the system drive at C:\rapport.txt.

please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply

OK you did reset the Modem?

Run SmitfraudFix Repair and tell us about the error.
You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart anyway into normal Windows. A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Yeah, I have reset the modem and the router many times. I am doing the stuff that you are telling me word for word.
I know some things about computers, so I'm not completely computer dumb. I thought that this was an easy enough problem to fix. But apparently I was wrong.
I just don't know why these programs won't update considering I "removed" the trojan. I really am considering a complete wipe and just starting over if I can't get this problem fixed in a couple days.

But you have been a big help so thank you much.

I feel bad too,thought we had this one this is a newer and serious infection..(Trojan.DNSChanger)

You can read more about it here. Malware Silently Alters Wireless Router Settings
We only have 2 options from here as the tools to fix this now are only used in the HijackThis forum. So option 1 is to post a log there. See instructions below. Option 2 is Full format and reinstall. Honestly that would be my choice with this malware. It is the only syre way to guarantee it is gone.

Okay so I was reading that link that you gave me about it and they said that all the computers using the router would be infected. So I came onto the only computer (of the 3) that is hard wired to the router and it seems to be infected as well. I tried to go to a few microsoft links including the update site and they just redirected me to msn.com. So I ran the SmitFraudFix and I think it found something... I just don't know how to read this exactly. I just ran the scan (option 1). So I'm going to go ahead and try fixing all the computers on the network offline and then going ahead and reseting the modem and router to see if having all the computers fixed would help me out and not just having one of the computers resetting the dns to whatever the trojan is telling it to do.

I will keep you updated on how my progress is going. I most likely will have a post on how it work out tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks for the help and wish me good luck. Because after this option, I will be moving on to total wipe. And I don't want to do that to 3 computers. :thumbsup:

This is the scan and clean results from the first computer. I just wanted to see if that did anything before I went to bed. But no time to monkey around with it tonight. Happy thanksgiving by the way.

I think this is bad news. The computer that was wired to the network looks like it came up with a no show for the DNS Changer trojan. Any opinions?

Ok I was unaware that this was going down a line. Lets see is SDFix finds it.

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.

I found another forum where other people have run into similar problems and they are telling the people to do as follows:


I'm mildly surprised that the other folks at Compuware wouldn't have already advised you, but here goes.

Chances are one or more of the PCs in the network are infected with router exploits or keyloggers. So, don;t use that network or any of the PCs to clean up.

Disconnect the router from the internet. Take it to another PC and network where you know it's safe to work.

Reload the latest router firmware obtained from the vendor and use a known trusted PC

Reconfigure the router with new password

Disable WAN(remote) access

Disable the router's UPnP

Disable admin access from wireless connections

Set up WPA/WPA2 wireless with complex passphrases. If wireless isn't needed, disable it.

Change the default LAN IP address of the router, for example from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.xxx.yyy where X and y are between 1 and 254. You'll need to renew DHCP on your PC ot reconnect

Change the default HTTP and telnet access ports (you will need to reconnect using those ports). for example your browser login will be 192.168.xxx.yyy:29316 where 29316 is the new port. Same with telnet.

Check and disinfect all PCs on the suspect network one at a time as needed. See
»Security Cleanup

When you're sure you've checked for and fixed any compromised systems on the affected network, take the router back and install it. Set up DHCP on the client PCs to allow them to connect. If they're wireless, set them up with the new WPA/WPA2 settings.

These steps should foil all the presently known CSRF and Flash/script/UPnP exploits.


I haven't tried this or the most previous post yet. I'm going to give the previous post a try on the xp computer that is wired to the network. So I'm going to try to clean off all the malware and spyware from that computer and my laptop. (now they are the only computers on the network) And then reset the router and modem.

What are the thoughts about the quote that I posted? I will let you all know what the results are of the cleaning and starting new with the router and what not.

Thanks for all the help so far.
