Posted 10 March 2009 - 03:03 PM

So this afternoon my AVG Tea Timer started telling me something was trying to change a registry entry, and I denied it and said "remember this decision." Then AVG started going nuts with endless alerts saying it was blocking repeated attempts, all of them for Winlogon.exe. Then Firefox started acting erratic and my search results and link clicking kept getting redirected to sites I didn't want.

I tried to run Spybot S&D and it wouldn't open. I tried AVG instead and it detected the Pakes.AP Trojan Horse, which I removed. I tried to run the Winlogon.exe virus removal procedure that I found here - snsays.com/26/removing-winlogon-virus/ - but strangely I found no .dll files that seemed suspicious or obviously needed removing.

So I've cleaned what I could find, but the various effects haven't stopped. Spybot still won't open, and the problems with Firefox have not gone away. I tried reinstalling it and that didn't help, although I didn't let the unintsall program remove all my settings and add-ons. I thought I'd check with this program first before going that far -- I've customized it quite a bit and redoing it all would suck.

Can someone please help me find what else I need to clean, if anything?

Howdy, my name is Hoov, and I will be helping you with your dilemma.

Please make sure you watch this thread for responses. If you click the options tab at the top of your first post, you can select to track this thread.

Here is what I am asking you to do during the repair of your computer

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

*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.

*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. Don't install anything, even other programs that have nothing to do with security or malware, it could cause things to change, and I would never know it.

*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.

*Stick with me to the end. My aim is to fix your problems, and give you the tools and knowledge to keep this from happening again.

Now onto trying to fix your computer.

If I am helping you and you don't hear from me for 24Hrs, send me a PM Please!

I know this is a bit of a nit pick, but just so that you know, Teatimer is part of Spybot, not AVG.

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.

Also I would like you to update AVG and run a full scan. Fix what it finds. Post the log from the scan. Also, may I ask why you have not upgraded to Version 8?

Hi Hoov. :thumbup2:

I tried to follow the instructions you gave me, but ran into a snag trying to use MBAM. I tried downloading the file from all three links. The ones from majorgeeks.com and besttechie.net would download but would not install - I'd get to the screen which asked if I really wanted to run the program and I'd click "run" and then nothing would happen. Only the copy from gt500.org would install...but then it wouldn't launch.

I decided to try updating AVG (just wasn't paying attention to what version I had :-/), running that and seeing if that would clean my computer up enough to run MBAM. I did and it found and cleaned a bunch of tracking cookies and something called "Adware Generic2.ABZP." I then tried running MBAM again - no luck. I reinstalled it and tried again - nope, still wouldn't start.

I still have the same problems - constant IE popups, and redirected links on Firefox from any search results. That and Spybot S&D won't load either.

Here's the "overview" from the AVG scan:

* Anyone other than the originator of this thread, you would be best advised to not run combofix without guidance from someone trained in its use. It is a very powerful tool that can cause damage to your computer if used wrong.

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

rename combofix.exe to multifix.exe and reboot to safe mode and then run it. Post up the log, or let me know it didn't run again.

That should have gotten most of it, or at least broken the back of the problem. Try running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware now. Before doing the scan, update it, and then when you do a scan, do the full scan instead of a quick scan. This will take hours to run. Post the log when its done.

Those are either quarantined files or system restore files and would have been deleted in a bit anyway.

Now there are something's you need to do to fully clean your system and keep it secure.

[*]Please download OTCleanIt from one of the following mirrors and save it to your desktop:[*]Double click the Posted Image icon.
[*] Click the large "Cleanup" button.
[*] A list of tool components used in the Cleanup of malware will be downloaded.
[*] Click Yes to begin the Cleanup process and remove these components, including this application.
[*] You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
[*] Make sure you have an Internet Connection.
[*] If you have a firewall that throws out a message that OTMI3 is attempting to contact the Internet that it should be allowed.
[*]You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
[/list]
Cleaning out Temporary Files etc. There are several different products that you can use for this. You can go thru the Internet Options in the windows Control Panel. There are several programs that also do the job better than windows does it, in my opinion. There is System Security Suite, EasyCleaner, Ccleaner. Also sometimes other program sometimes do it as well as what you originally got it for like ZoneAlarm Security Suite. Just make sure to keep them updated and use them regularly.

Disable and Enable System Restore.
If you are using Windows Vista or XP, then I recommend you turn off System restore, and then turn it back on so that you will not be able to restore your problems to a clean computer.

Here are some good tutorials for that.
Windows Vista Restore Guide
or
Windows XP System Restore Guide
Reboot
Re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

Create a System Restore Point
Go to all programs, then to accessories, then to system tools, then to system restore. Check the box for create restore point (not select a restore point), then click next and follow the instructions.

Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions: (unless you are using ZoneAlarm Security Suite or something similar, then you would secure the browser thru the firewall).

From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
Click once on the Security tab
Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
Click once on the Custom Level button.
Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
Also see the following: Securing Your Web Browser
Working with Internet Explorer 6 Security

Use a different browser other than IE (most exploits are pointed towards IE). One of them is
Firefox.
It is also worth trying Thunderbird for controlling spam in your e-mail.


Always use an UPDATED anti-virus program Make sure you update this at least weekly, if not more often. This is one thing that may Ave you more than anything else.

Run malware scanners. Three free ones are Spybot Search and Destroy, and AdAware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware


Always use a firewall.
Any firewall is better than none, and you should pick a firewall that you will use, as even the best firewall is worthless if you turn it off.

Learn how to use your firewall Only programs that need it should have access to the net. But these are specific to the firewall you use, so you will need to learn how. Several firewalls have support forums here. My page will help you with ZoneAlarm if that is what you choose.


Never run two Antivirus programs or two Firewalls at the same time. They can interfere with each other and cause problems. Some people swear that more protection is provided, but the reverse is true. They tend to argue amongst themselves and end up leaving holes. Now I have more than 1 AV installed on my computer, and I keep them up to date. I only run one at a time, but each program has weakness's, so I keep a backup in case my computer starts acting up.


MOST IMPORTANT : Windows and IE, and whatever other software that you have that connects to the net, needs to be kept updated. The reason is, these programs connect to the net, and if there is an internal security problem, you have already told your firewall to allow the communication, and thus you will have allowed a hole. UPDATES are important. I suggest that you make sure that Windows Updates and the updates for your antivirus and antimalware programs are set for automatic updates.

Don't ever use P2P or filesharing software Even the safest P2P file sharing programs that do not contain bundled spyware, still expose you to risks because of the very nature of the P2P file sharing process. By default, most P2P file sharing programs are configured to automatically launch at startup. They are also configured to allow other P2P users on the same network open access to a shared directory on your computer. The reason for this is simple. File sharing relies on its members giving and gaining unfettered access to computers across the P2P network. However, this practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. Even if you change those risky default settings to a safer configuration, the act of downloading files from an anonymous source greatly increases your exposure to infection. That is because the files you are downloading may actually contain a disguised threat. Many very malicious worms and trojans, such as the Storm Worm, target and spread across P2P files sharing networks because of their known vulnerabilities.

Before using any malware detection / removal software Check with Rogue/Suspect Spyware List and Rogue Applications List That way you will know if the program you are looking at is on the up and up. If you want to know how it stacks up against other programs check out SpywareWarrior

We have a good guide here at Spyware Hammer on how to prevent Malware in the Future. You might want to peruse this and follow the recommendations in there.
PLEASE READ IT AND FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDATIONS TO PROTECT YOURSELF.

Let us know if you have any more problems, either new or old.
Have a good time surfing the net, but stay safe.
If you have no more problems, let me know and I will mark this as resolved. Or if you have more questions, ask away, that is why I am here.
