I had an issue previous to this, but through many steps I was able to solve it. (so I thought)
First of all, a few weeks back I had an encounter with either a music site or a (I'll be honest) porn site. From this my firewall and antivirus got disabled. I used google to search for my problem and came across other sites explaining programs to use to fix this issue. My internet had also got disconnected from this "virus". I remember that I could not access the net, so I had to use a flash drive to transfer the programs from our family computer to mine.
Some of these programs used were as followed:
- Spybot - Seach & Destroy
- ESET NOD32 Antivirus
- Malewarebytes' Anti-maleware
- Xoftspy SE
- Windows Defender
- Spyware Blaster
- HijackThis v2.0.2
With these I was able to clean a majority of viruses & issues.
I also ran some Vundofix(one of the virus varients were of this type) & Combofix.
After these the scans no longer picked anything up and my computer was running fairly well, so I thought I was home-free.
(Sadly I do not remember what I did to get my internet to function again.)
Ok so now... things were going fine until I guess I came across another music site (that was supposed to be legit) and I encountered more viruses. These ones seemed to be different though. I've ran several of the previously listed programs, however others will not load. These are the ones that I could not get to work this time: - Malewarebytes' Anti-maleware - Ad-Aware - Windows Defender.
MBAM for example I get this error: Run-time error '372' - Failed to load control 'vbalGrid' from 'vbalsgrid6.ocx'. Your version of vbalsgrid6.ocx may be outdated. etc, etc...
I have read up about this, tried to download on family computer, change name, transfer, install and run. Nothing seems to work, same for the other programs.
These are the other programs I've used this time:
The other problems I have with this recent infection are as followed:
- Computer is running very very sluggish (even before the running of protection programs; 2 or 3 times as long to boot up and perform tasks)
- Taskbar was minimized and would not show
- Internet became disconnected
- Certain protection programs will not open (in normal or safe-mode; Antivirus & firewall seem to be working fine this time though)
- I can't drag and drop files from the desktop or any other folder
I'm guessing it has something to do with my svchost.exe files (as you can see in HijackThis log), but do not know how to go about fixing it.
I have been trying to fix this by myself from reading around different sites of which people said they had the same issues. Been following steps and working on this for well over 6 hours now, I could really use as much help as possible to get this sorted out.
All help is GREATLY appreciated.
P.s. Here's a link to a .rar file with all logs. (Pretty sure Spybot found something, but I forgot to save log)
