Posted 06 February 2009 - 07:22 PM

My daughter has an Asus F3Q Series. Normally she connects to the internet via a Huawei USB Modem. The modem intermittently crashes the notebook although it has been updated with the latest firmware. About 10 days ago the screen resolution droppped to 640X480 on reboot. Although I change it to a higher resolution it goes back to lowest after reboot. Also in Display Properties the theme is now set to Custom (Modified). There's no Custom option left anymore.

Next I noticed that only sometimes there's a process in the task bar called HViewer. It can't be accessed or closed.

I Googled on Hviewer and on CNet I found a discussion that this might be due to VX2. I downloaded and ran CCleaner. I ran my Symantec Antivirus in Safe Mode. I also downloaded and ran Adaware in Safe Mode (the screen resolution is normal in Safe Mode). Adaware didn't show anything up. I also downloaded and ran Spybot Search and Destroy which identified some potential Malware entries. I removed them. Sorry but I didn't keep a log.

So far all of this has been ineffective.

I've downloaded and run DDS as per your instructions. The DDS window closes after about 30 seconds. It doesn't open the text files you mentioned. I don't think there's any script blocking on as I got no messages but I'm not technical.

Furthermore I've had a look in the registry. In HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software there's a key consisting of 15 square boxes. Underneath it is an entry called Net4Switch which has two entries called Recent File List and Settings. I deleted all of this but it automatically recreates. I believe that Net4Switch is an Asus Utility although I don't have it on my F3E Series Notebook.

Finallly I ran HiJackThis but it didn't show any entries that might indicate VX2.

Please help as my daughter is back at Uni next week and minus a working notebook. This one is only about 2 months old.

I'm completely stumped so any help or guidance would be most gratefully received. I know you are all volunteers so I will wait patiently.

Here's the HJT file.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  • Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  • Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  • Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  • Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  • Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.
Thanks.

Step 1

You may want to print this page. Make sure to work through the fixes in the order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Step 2


Ensure that you have the latest version of Adobe® Reader®. If you do not have the latest version, you may want to download the latest version, Adobe® Reader® 9.

Step 3

In Normal Mode, run an online malware check from at least two and preferably three (one may catch something that another one may not) of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner
McAfee FreeScan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro™ HouseCall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
WindowSecurity.com TrojanScan
When you have completed the scans, if you get a report of files that cannot be cleaned / deleted, make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be cleaned / deleted. Please edit the log(s) and remove:
  • items listed as "Object is locked skipped"
  • items reported that are in a quarantine folder
Please post the edited list in your next reply.

Step 4

I recommend using Spyware Blaster.
  • Please download SpywareBlaster and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on it to install the program.
  • Follow the prompts and choose the default locations when installing the program.
  • When the program is installed, it will place an icon on your desktop.
  • Double click on the SpywareBlaster icon and you will be presented with a brief tutorial. On the first page of this tutorial, you will see some of the SpywareBlaster features
  • Click on the Next button to proceed to the second page of the tutorial.
  • If you want to purchase the software, then you should select Automatic Updating. If you do not plan on purchasing the software, then you should select the option for Manual Updating. Press the Next button.
  • At the next screen, click Finish.
  • At the next screen, Protection Status, click Enable All Protection.
  • Click Download Latest Protection Updates. This will ensure that SpywareBlaster has the latest definitions so that it can protect your browser more efficiently. You should update SpywareBlaster regularly, as much as every few days, in order to provide the best protection. Each time you update, be sure to click Enable All Protection.
Step 5

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is FREEWARE, however you may upgrade to the PRO version which contains realtime protection, scheduled scanning and updating.
  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM). Alternate download link
  • 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
  • Click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing 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 the Malware Bytes Web site. Scroll down the page until you see Latest Database; click Download from GT500.org
  • Double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab, make sure the Perform Quick Scan option is selected.
  • 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; please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully.
  • 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.
Step 6
  • Please download the ATF-Cleaner by Atribune.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Check the boxes to the left of:
    • Windows Temp
    • Current User Temp
    • All Users Temp
    • Temporary Internet Files
    • Prefetch (Windows XP) only
    • Java Cache
  • The rest are optional - if you want to remove them all, check Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • When you get the Done Cleaning message, click OK.
  • Follow the same steps for Firefox or Opera. You have the option of checking No if you want to save your passwords.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Do not run it yet.

Step 7

Check your computer with anti-rootkit applications. I recommend avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.

Step 8

Check to see if you have insecure applications with
Secunia Software Inspector.

Step 9
  • According to your Internet connection, please disconnect from the Internet. Close ALL browser windows (including this one).
    • Physically remove the cable for your broadband Internet service “Always On” Connection from your computer.
    • Turn your modem off.
    • Disconnect your modem cable from your computer.
  • Turn the device off for Hand-held wireless connections.
  • Exit all processes and items in your System tray.
Step 10

During the process of removing malware from your computer, there are times you may need to use specialized fix tools. Certain embedded files that are part of these specialized fix tools may be detected by your antivirus or anti-malware scanner as a RiskTool, Hacking tool, Potentially unwanted tool, a virus or a Trojan when that is not the case.
These tools have been carefully created and tested by security experts so if your antivirus or anti-malware program flags them as malware, then it is a False Positive. Antivirus scanners cannot distinguish between good and malicious use of such programs; therefore, they may alert you or even automatically remove them. In these cases, the removal of these files can have unpredictable results and unintentional results.
To avoid any problems while using a specialized fix tool, it is very important that you temporarily disable your antivirus and/or anti-malware programs before using the specialized fix tool.
When your system has been cleaned, it is important that you enable your security programs to avoid reinfection.
Please disable the following program(s):

Spybot - S&D TeaTimer

We need to disable Spybot TeaTimer as it may interfere with the cleaning.
Please do not enable it until I tell you that your HijackThis log is clean.

Step A
  • Right-click the Spybot icon in the System Tray (looks like a blue/white calendar with a padlock symbol)
  • If you have the new version 1.5, Click once on Resident Protection, then right click the Spybot icon again and make sure Resident Protection is now unchecked. The Spybot icon in the System Tray should now be now colorless.
  • If you have Version 1.4, Click on Exit Spybot S&D Resident.
Step B

Second step, For Either Version :
  • Open Spybot S&D.
  • Click Mode, choose Advanced Mode.
  • Go To the bottom of the vertical Panel on the Left, Click Tools.
  • In left panel, click Resident (shows a red/white shield).
  • If your firewall raises a question, say OK.
  • In the Resident protection status frame, uncheck the box labeled Resident "Tea-Timer"(Protection of over-all system settings) active.
  • OK any prompts.
  • Use File > Exit to terminate Spybot.
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
    Don't forget to restart Spybot - Search and Destroy's Teatimer when your machine is clean and undo the changes above.
SUPERAntiSpyware

We need to disable SUPERAntiSpyware as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.
  • Right click on the icon in your System Tray.
  • Click Exit
  • Make sure that the program, SUPERAntiSpyware itself, is also closed/not running.
Now we will address the HijackThis fixes.

Step 11

Please run HijackThis and click Scan. Place checks next to the following entries (make sure not to miss any):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click Fix Checked to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Step 12

Optional Fixes is the name that we use for fixes for unnecessary programs that load during startup and run in the background. These programs are not required to start automatically as you can start them manually if you need them. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Your computer may be sluggish due to the many programs loading during startup and running in the background that are not necessary. Windows has a facility for starting programs at startup time. Some of these programs are required for your computer and the applications installed on it to run correctly. A good example of such a program is a virus-checking application that must always run, constantly checking for and isolating or removing files with viruses. Other such programs are not strictly required, or are optional. In some cases, you can gain significant performance enhancements by disabling the automatic startup of these programs. In many cases, the functionality offered by the programs is still available by starting the programs manually by, for example, starting the program from the Windows Start->Programs menu. Media players and instant messaging programs often fall into this category. In fact, it is common for many modern software applications, when installed, to add programs at startup that add items to the system tray or shortcut (context) menus in Windows Explorer to provide quick access to the features and functions of these applications. While they may be useful, they do increase boot time and consume system resources. It is advised that you disable these programs so that they do not take up necessary resources or slow the boot time.

Other than ScanRegistry, SystemTray, StateMgr, antivirus program entries, and firewall program entries, very few others need to load and run.

It's not always malware: How to fix the top 10 Internet Explorer issues

If you decide that you want to stop the Optional Fixes in your startup, let me know and I will give you a list with instructions. You would be removing the program from your startup but you would not be removing the program itself.

Step 13

Let’s run ATF-Cleaner to ensure no malware is hiding in temporary folders and for general computer cleanup to free space on your computer.

Step 14

Please run [b]HijackThis in Normal Mode
and post:
  • the list of file names and locations for any files that cannot be cleaned / deleted that were reported after you completed the online scans.
  • the log from [b]MalwareBytes
  • a new HijackThis log
Please advise me of any problems you still have.
