Computer is getting slower and slower.... daily! I can't pinpoint a single a download when this all started, i put all the blame on other users. None the less my computer is definately infected.

Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16735)

Mcafee finds nothing in normal and safe mode.
Adaware finds nothing in normal and wont start in safe mode.
Spybot search and destroy found 19 items and removed with normal scan.

The slowness kept persisting so i viewed the advanced options and went through startup application in hopes of minimizing computer usage.


several system 32 applications such as ctfmon and multiple descriptions, upon further inspection i realize that several .dll's and other files have duplicated within system 32, java folders and etc. Within the description of these files in the spybot sd column of the system startup the descriptions of some of the ctfmon were:
Added by the _RAIDYS_ TROJAN! Note - this should not be confused with the valid Office XP file, see _here_
and
CoolWebSearch _Ctfmon32_ parasite variant

Furthermore under SunJavaUpdate scheduler i find the multiple descriptions as saying:
Added by the _SDBOT-AVX_ WORM!
and
Added by the _SDBOT-WI_ WORM!

the list goes on.... with other startup appliacations

were do i start and what do i do?

I have the three antivirus/malware programs listed and have recently downloaded hijack this.

Thankyou very much in advance!!

Hi Brady and welcome to BC!

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.

Alright here is what happened....

I went to safe mode as instructed and ran ATF as instructed, it cleaned 72,000 kb or something pretty easily. I then went to SAS and had to track it down within the desktop folder rather than directly on the desktop. I open it and it acts as if i never set it up initially. so i did so as you instructed initially again. I then run the full scan and after roughly 13 and 1/2 hrs it finds 17 infected items, most of which can't be removed without a reboot. So i reboot and after a very lengthy restart in normal mode I check my SAS preferences for logs and there is no sign of any scan ever, and therefore no log. Should i get the log from safe mode some how? Oddly both mcafee and windows are downloading updates, which could also be contributing to my computers slowness currently.

Thanks....

No, the username you scanned in will be fine.

Last steps - should be...

Please run the F-Secure Online Scanner
Note: This Scanner is for Internet Explorer Only!
Follow the Instruction here for installation.
Accept the License Agreement.
Once the ActiveX installs,Click Full System Scan
Once the download completes, the scan will begin automatically.
The scan will take some time to finish, so please be patient.
When the scan completes, click the Automatic cleaning (recommended) button.
Click the Show Report button and Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.

Then update and rerun malwarebytes and post a fresh log. We should see 0's...

having issues dowloading the f secure online scanner components. I keep gettin an error only about %4 of the way through saying i should retry again due to network connections. After 8 attempts , i'm going to try rebooting and see if that solves anything. Not sure if the problem is my network or theirs.

After a 10 minute reboot, same problem, error message after several download restarts : "Unable to download necessary Online Scanner Components! Please try again."
........



Finally downloaded.... now scanning, follow instruction then run MBAM quick scan right?

Awesome :thumbsup:

How is your computer running now?

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.
Safe surfing!

It's still not working much better... It seems as though there is something more.
Spybot still has those three original malware/spyware/trojan files listed in startup......
The computer was running fine a month ago, and now at this snails pace, it's nearly useless. I am starting to think I may need to completely reformat, is there anything more you can suggest?

If you are still having problems, I would recommend either going through our HJT forum, or a reformat. The HJT team uses advanced tools that require specialized training. The guide is located here -start at step (6). Post your log to the HJT forum and someone will be with you as soon as they can. One comment - there is a backlog of logs at the moment, so be patient.
