Hi,
Whenever I search for something in Google then click on any of the result links, I'm redirected to random sites. Often the original search terms are included in the URL for the random sites and the sites are occasionally cheap search portals. This does not appear to happen with other search sites (AltaVista, Yahoo), but it does happen in both IE 7 and FireFox 3.

I tried running RSIT but I get an "AutoIT Error" stating there was an error at line -1: Error parsing function.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • 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 (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

Next steps... I would recommend printing these instructions out because they are detailed and lengthy.

1) Please update and rerun Malwarebytes - no log needed.
==========================================
2)Please download SmitfraudFix

Disconnect your computer from the internet by unplugging your network cable from your router.
Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select #5 Search and clean DNS Hijack
Please reboot your computer, reconnect your router, and then post the report found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt
==========================================
3) I recommend changing the password of your router. This type of infection is designed to take over - we are taking back.
==========================================
4) Let's manually reset your DNS.

Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.

Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

To obtain a DNS server address automatically, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
==========================================
5) Click Start - Run. The Run dialog box will open.
Type cmd in the box and click Enter. A DOS window will open.
Type ipconfig /flushdns <=Note the spacing
Reboot your computer!
==========================================
6) Please rerun Malwarebytes and post a new log.

Thanks!

Sorry -- I forgot to post this last nite. Also, I noticed that when I tried to access my C:\ drive from Explorer, I would get an error stating that C:\resycled\boot.com could not be found (MBAM deleted the file and folder). I found and deleted the C:\autorun.inf file that was causing this. We had a similar worm at work which would run unnoticed whenever a drive was mapped in Explorer -- including USB thumb drives which is how it spread from PC to PC. I also found autorun.inf on another of my partitions, along with the intact resycled\boot.com file, which I also deleted. Should I run MBAM on this other partition? If so, how do I do that? I also have network attached storage devices and am wondering if I should check those somehow. Thanks for all the help.

I think the infection on this drive is cured :thumbsup:

For your flash drives, you can use this:
Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well. Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that is plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Malwarebytes should pick up the other partitions(?) drives(?) by running a full scan. Make sure those letters are selected. if you have another OS on thosepartitions - dual boot - you may need to open those and handle them indiviually. I have never ran Malwarebytes, or SuperAntiSpyware on network drives. You can try it... the network drive should be identified as a drive letter.

One word. Malwarebytes does not advertise it's product for use with networks.

Almost forgot ...

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, 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.
