For the past week or so I have noticed my computers performance slowing down dramatically. Than about 3 days ago, a lot of funky stuff starting happening. First, I have Windows XP Professional Edition, use Avira Free Edition for Virus Protection, regularly run Adaware 2008, Spybot, and CCleaner.

I have noticed that everytime I try to update Avira, it begins the update, but than that window closes down and will not update. Than suddenly my Windows automatic updates were turned off, and I have been unable to turn them back on. Than I began repeatedly getting messages that either Internet Explorer or Firefox has encountered a problem and must close etc. Than I noticed I would suddenly get a new tab with some bogus spyware scanner telling me I was infected and to download the following and it would bring me to the following website - adserver.adtechus.com Obviously I didn't download anything. I have not downloaded any new music, or any files in the past few weeks and have installed no new software. I ran an Adaware Scan, Spybot, and Avira Scan and cleaned everything I found. I am still having the same problems though. I removed and reinstalled Avira, but still cannot get it to update and cannot get the Microsoft Auto Updates to function. And today, when I logged on, Avira was completly turned off and I was sent to that Adserver.adtechus.com site again. I am prettly sure I have some kind of virus or malware. I have a Hijackthislog, but I know this is not the place to post it, but will if it will be helpful...

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 Download_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 and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • 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 will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

The "No action Taken" comments in your log are usually an indication that the Remove selected button was not clicked. Did you do that? If not please rescan and run again.

Yeah, I thought that as well, but I guess it was because they couldn't be deleted until I rebooted...but I ran it again and it didn't find anything this time...and my computer is running much quicker and I was able to get Microsoft auto updates turned on, but I still can't update Avira...that may be unrelated though...Not sure, but I was surprised how much crap it found, I run scans every 2 days with Adaware, Spybot, and Avira...

So it appears you have no more signs of infection?
Please turn off your firewall ( only for this) and try to update. If you can your firewall is blocking the Avira update site.
Turn firewall back on.

Yes it appears all infections have been removed...I turned off Comodo firewall and was able to update Avira...I never had this problem before, but I guess when I update, I'll just have to turn off the firewall...I have since updated and turned firewall back on...Thanks for all your help...

I believe you have a whitelist in Comodo Firewall. You can add Avira to your whitelist. :thumbsup:
