Posted 08 February 2009 - 10:05 PM

I run SpyBot regularly and it's picking up something called TrafficZ. This thing keeps coming back again and again. I looked it up and it appears to be related to some sort of domain registration site.

I'm also getting frequent browser crashes and hangs and also flurries of error messages telling me that applications are trying and failing to access memory in various addresses. The most common of these is along the lines of "not enough quota to perform operation". Another common one tells me that programs are trying to access memory at 0xc000012d. I got a new one an hour or so ago: "Instruction 0x65502662 referenced memory @ 0x0000010. Memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate program".

All this started just after Christmas, but it's getting so bad now that I can hardly do ANYTHING - on or offline. I've updated my drivers, run AdAware, SpyBot, CCleaner, defragged my disks and files, removed as much of my browser customisations as I can bear to be without and done everything I can possibly think of. I had a friend round who took the computer apart and said he couldn't see anything wrong with the hardware and the computer itself isn't dusty.

I don't know whether this is the right place and I apologise if it's not, but I'm posting up my HJT log below in case there's anything in there that can throw light on the problem:

Right. Here goes to see whether I can do that or not. I'm having an awful lot of problems with doing even the most basic things at the moment, so I hope it works.

Oh good! It seems to have worked - although I had to try several times before it "took". I hope you can tell from these two logs what the problem(s) may be before I throw the whole thing through my third floor window :thumbup2:.

Hello, welcome to SpywareHammer.

I go by Hoov, and I will be helping you with your problem. I must ask you to do a few things for me.

First, tell me everything that you have done, if anything, to try and fix this problem.

Second, please only use 1 forum to help clear up your problem. Posting on more than 1 and following instructions from more than 1 forum will cause those helping you to pull out thier hair.

Third, follow my instructions - If you can't for some reason, or if you don't understand something, please tell me. If you deviate from my instructions, tell me, it may make a difference on where we go.

Fourth, Have faith. I will do all I can to get your computer working, and if I can't - someone else here will know something else to try.

Now onto trying to fix your computer.

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 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 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.

Run comboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Also make sure you close all your browsers just before the instructions tell you to start the scanner.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall


If these two programs won't run, try rebooting to safe mode to install and run them.

Also let me know if you can't download them.

When ComboFix wanted me to download Recovery Console, it flagged up a message to tell me that I wasn't connected to the internet - even though all indications told me I was. I've noticed that this has been happening occasionally over the past couple of months or so, but I don't know what to do about it.

I just caught something that I don't know why I looked over it before. Antivirus and firewalls. You should only have one of each running. This includes the new version of AdAware. More than one will have adverse affects. So turn off all the antivirus and firewalls except the one of each that you want to keep, and see if your computer is more stable and more usable.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware does run fairly fast unless you do a full scan.

Also I would like you to go to the run command and type in sfc /scannow and let me know what it does. You may need your windows XP install disk.

I disabled AdAware Watch but my computer was playing up for some time before I installed that, which is why I DID install it, to see if it made any difference - it doesn't.

I tried running sfc / scannow with and without the XP install disk. Without the XP disk I get one of those "Can't find ..." messages and with it I just got a brief flash of what appeared to be a window and then nothing at all.

From the combofix log it appears you have three AV scanners running, and two firewalls.

AV: Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition *On-access scanning disabled* (Updated)
AV: Lavasoft Ad-Watch Live! Anti-Virus *On-access scanning disabled* (Updated)
AV: ZoneAlarm Antivirus *On-access scanning disabled* (Outdated)

FW: COMODO Firewall *enabled*
FW: ZoneAlarm Firewall *enabled*

Which ones do you want to run?

I want Avira and Comodo. I thought I'd disabled Ad-Watch and removed Zone Alarm altogether, but I want to keep AdAware so I can run its spyware scans. These problems started before I installed Avira and Comodo though. I installed them BECAUSE of the problems!

I'd been using AVG antivirus until it wanted an update a couple of months ago. I tried to update it and it kept telling me that it couldn't update. After putting up with this for a few days I removed it altogether and installed Avira, which I'd used for several years until February 2008 when I put my computer into a local shop for a radical upgrade of RAM and processing power. When my system started going wrong just before Christmas I installed Comodo because Zone Alarm (which I'd been using for at least five years with no trouble) was also starting to get flaky on me.

To remove ZoneAlarm completely from your computer in case normal uninstall can't be run or doesn't run properly, do the following:

* Right click the ZoneAlarm systray icon and click Restore ZoneAlarm Control Center.
Go to Overview > Preferences and uncheck Load ZoneAlarm at startup.
Close Control Center, right click the icon again and then click Shutdown ZoneAlarm.
Note: If you're unable to carry out this step because the icon is missing, you can skip it and proceed with the next steps, but in this case do them all in safe mode!

* REBOOT

* Go to Start > Programs > ZoneLabs and click Uninstall, or uninstall ZA using Control Panel > Software > Add/Remove Programs.
If a security check appears, click Yes and continue the uninstall procedure.

* REBOOT

* Make sure hidden files and folders are shown. To do so open Windows Explorer. Depending on your OS click Tools or View and then Folder Options > View.
Choose Show hidden files and folders, uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Windows 2000/XP/2003 only) and click OK.
* Next go to Start > Search > Files and Folders. Make sure the location box is set to search your Local Hard Drive (usually C:\ ) or All Local Drives. Also make sure the Advanced Search Options are set to search subfolders and hidden files. Now copy the entire line below, paste it into the search box and click Search Now.

Zonelabs; "zone labs"; "Internet logs"; vsconfig.xml; vsdata.dll; vsdata95.vxd; vsdatant.sys; vsmon.*; vsmonapi.dll; vsnetutils.dll;vspubapi.dll; zaplus.*; zapro.*; zllictbl.dat; zlparser.dll; zonealarm.exe; zoneband.dll; vsutil.dll; zlclient.*

A list of files and folders belonging to ZoneAlarm will appear in the Search Results pane.
Note: if you're using McAfee software be sure to check the vsutil.dll if found: right click the file and choose Properties. Verify it belongs to ZoneLabs.
If it does not do not remove it. Now proceed by deleting all ZoneLabs files and folders that were found.

* Empty the Recycle Bin.
* Now remove all ZoneLabs keys that may be left in the Windows registry. To do this copy the lines below and paste them into Notepad.
Save the file as zabegone.reg, double click it and allow for the registry changes to be made.

REGEDIT4
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZAMailSafe]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Zone Labs]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Zone Labs]
[-HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Zone Labs]


* REBOOT

ZoneAlarm will now be completely removed from your computer. If you wish to install a new copy of ZA, be sure to do so under an administrator account
with full rights and permissions.

then run combofix again and post the log. Make sure to follow the same instructions as before.

Curious, it still shows ZA AV installed. But if you followed the procedures, it is definitely gone. I will have to look into that a bit. Is your computer running any better?

If not then I need you to go to the administration tools in XP. They are in the Control Panel. Open the Admin tools, then open the event viewer. Over on the left hand side and click on System. Then up at the top click on Action and then click on Save Events As, type in system as the file name, make sure file type EVT is selected, and then navigate so it will save the file to your desktop, then click save. Over on the left hand side and click on Application. Then up at the top click on Action and then click on Save Events As, type in application as the file name, make sure file type EVT is selected, and then navigate so it will save the file to your desktop, then click save. Zip them both up into a single zip file, post them back here in your next reply as attachments.

My computer is running a lot better now - thanks :thumbup2: . I'm not sure whether I'm out of the woods yet, but at least I'm not getting weird error messages and crashes every few minutes and it's definitely speeding up now.

OK. Run your computer for a day and see if anything strange pops up. Or if it starts doing anything out of the ordinary. Then come back and let me know, and if there are no problems we can do some cleanup and call it done.
