Hey Guys!

Don't have a hijack this log yet and currently scanning my system32 folder with mcafee...

now mcafee detects all this annoying stuff...

gebstrpo.dll

random .dll file keeps getting created after qurantine

I deleted prunette.exe

I got registry references to prunette.exe in my startup (not checked but can't seem to find them...)

Rundll32.dll keeps nastily popping up, I even have this lovely line in my registry

rundll32 CMBHA.dll

found ridiculous references to rundll32.exe in notepad files running a search,

I got references to it in c:/i386 even in yahoo music launch I think...


anyways gebstrpo continues to pop up and heres the .sys file names that are associated with it

PHQGHUME.sys
GBQAGJXQ.sys
AWKZPZME.sys

I take it these nasty files inside c:/windows/system32/drivers/

are just random filenames.

Anyways i'll gladly run a hijack this log..but i gotta install that program I was just curious if theres a quick fix to this one?

if not i'll install and run hijack this, I just gotta restart my computer right now...and since i have mcafee I thought is there anyway that can help

or do I have to download SAS and malwarebytes etc...

thanks for the help guys

You should download asquared free and run a scan. But before you run the scan just update its database first and then scan. It has like the best detection rates in the industry. And I'm sure it wil fix problem as well. It has more than 2,000,000 signatures. Just be aware that the full system scan can take hours, so just be patient. But it's worth it. Here is the link: Asquared free :thumbsup:

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

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.

Note 2:
-- 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. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

---------------------------------

If mbam won't install

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.
--------------------------------
Please update mbam and select FULL Scan
Run the scan, Remove selected and reboot
Post the log for review

------------------------

mbam File assassin

MBAM has a built-in FileAssassin feature for removing stubborn malware or other malicious files that it did not detect.
  • Go to the "More Tools" tab and click on the "Run Tool" button
  • Browse to the location of the file (C:\xxxx.exe) to remove using the drop down box next to "Look in:" at the top.
  • When you find the file(s), click "Open".
  • You will be prompted with a message warning: This file will be permanently deleted. Are you sure you want to continue?. Click Yes.
  • If removal did not require a reboot, you will receive a message indicating the file was deleted successfully, however, I recommend you reboot anyway.

Caution: Be careful what you delete. FileAssassin is a powerful program, designed to move highly persistent files. Using it incorrectly could lead to serious problems with your operating system.


If the file returns, then you probably still have malware on your system which is protecting or regenerating it.
