My computer has been infected with a virus/trojan/malware. I am shown advertisements in locations that I wouldn't normally receive them on the internet. I will occasionally see duplicates of files that I recently saved, one the actual file and the other a virus clone. Not too long ago I had this same problem and I posted about it on this site. Well using combofix, like suggested, worked and I was clean, but now I have gotten a new computer and I have brought the virus with me to my new computer. I just learned that it was hiding in my flash drive and thats how it initially survived. I have thrown away the flash drive, it was a good excuse to get a new one, and now I need to clean my computer for good this time.

My problem is that now I have Vista, as opposed to XP, my computer is incompatable to combofix. I don't know what to do. Also I am apparently not compatable with the dds program for creating logs and now I don't know how to post my logs on this site.

I could really use some help, thanks in advance.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum. ~ OB

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • 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.

A friend over at the MBAM forum is running vista 64 bit since it's so secure

His signature lists his protections

Vista Ultimate x64 SP1,UAC On, KAV 2009, SAS Pro, Windows Defender, Comodo Boclean, TeaTimer,Spybot S&D Immunization, HostsMan, Vista Firewall Control x64 Pro, SpywareBlaster, + MBAM for on-demand scans. Behind hardware firewall.

Many tools don't work with Vista x 64, but then malware can't work either, this by design, drivers needed for rootkits and tools are not liscensed by Microsoft

Thanks for the help. My computer seems to be clean now. I thought I wasn't ever going to get my computer completely clean. I will also look into some of those ideas. Thanks again.

Would you see if you can get this program to work run as adminstator, it's what we use to immunize computers and flash drives from infection by autorun.inf files?

Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: As part of its routine, Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.

Thank you, that confirms what I suspected, you can't use it with 64 bit OS's.
