Posted 17 January 2009 - 04:03 PM

About a week ago I noticed that when using my browser to about every 10 minutes new windows would open displaying ads - even when no browser is active new windows would open.

I have McAffe Security Security Center and so ran a complete scan - some items were quarantined but the problem kept reoccuring.

After reading a log on the Mcaffe site I followed their recommendation and downloaded and ran SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition. This indicated that I had the vundo virus on my PC. Again attempts to quarantine and remove were unsuccessful.

My machine is freezing ( everything non responsive) several times a day and nothing but a hard reboot will suffice.

Would appreciate some help as I have exhausted my limited knowledge on this topic.

The DDS log is pasted below - thanks Paul

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.
Also please explain your problem as fully as possible. Each little detail will help in getting your system cleaned up and functional again.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scans:

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. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Full 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 using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Hi Hoov

Thanks a lot for the response I do appreciate it. I did manage to fix it but it was far from straightforward.

After researching this site and a couple of others I decided to give Malwarebytes AntiMalware software a try. When I tried installing it however the malware that was on my computer stopped the installation. I tried renaming the executable but that still did not work.

I already had SuperAnti Spyware installed from a previous failed attempt to fix the problem so I ran that which removed enough of the Malware so that I could install and run Malwarebytes AntiMalware. That cleared the infection.

However on rebooting I had no internet connection. After a fruitless hour on the phone to my broadband companies tech support had ruled out anything obvious I did some further research and concluded that I had a winsock corruption. I fixed that and now everything is working smoothly.

Again thanks for the response.

Regards
Paul

Cool Breeze! Just in case you ever run into connection problems again there is a nice utility called winsockXPFix that works good. Thanks for letting us know!
