This is by far the worst malware I've ever had, it's like it has a darn AI to it. Here's what's going on:

- Redirecting me abcjmp.com on google search
- Can't get to sites about Malwarebytes or Combofix
- Puts banners (over top other banners) for P enlargement, Via**, and Cial**.
- Read that Malwarebytes works for this malware but I can't run it or update it.
- Can't download Combofix
- Downloaded Malwarebytes to external hard drive from another computer. Installed on External Hard. Could not run it.
- Ran in safe mode but still can run Malwarebytes, I didn't try Combofix though.

If there's someway I can run Combofix or Malwarebytes I can probably get rid of it since a lot of seemed to have gotten rid of
it using one of these.

Please help if possible

Hi and welcome , here are some tips to run MBAM.
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..

Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.
Open up command prompt, type in following commands:
XP >> click the Start menu at the lower-left of your computer's desktop and select "Run". Type cmd into the Run box and click "OK".
Vista >> click the Start menu at the lower-left of your computer's desktop and Type cmd in the search box.

regsvr32 mbamext.dll
regsvr32 ssubtmr6.dll
regsvr32 vbalsgrid6.ocx
regsvr32 zlib.dll

If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.
From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run the program.
If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-

so it will install on the hard drive.

Manually Downloading 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.

You should also try an online scan.
Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

It's fixed. Here's what I did.

1. Downloaded combofix and MWB onto a Flash Drive on a non-infected computer ***It did not work when I downloaded it to an external drive****
2. Took flash drive to infected computer with MWB AND combofix
3. Ran installation of combofix and installed in NEW folder on the flash drive
4. Ran combofix

After Combofix did it's thing...

5. Ran installation of MWB and installed it also on a NEW folder on the flash drive.
6. Ran FULL SCAN of MWB. Took about 5 hours and found 19 objects. (i was happy to get it open so I didn't run the update)
7. Ran ccleaner
8. Stopped and Started System Restore to clear all data.
7. Restarted computer, ran MWB update and ran short scan. Short scan took all of 15 minutes or shorter (1 more malware found...wow!)
8. Ran CCleaner again

Everything is working fine now!!

Please post the results of your MBAM scan for review.

To retrieve the MBAM scan log information, launch MBAB.
  • Click the Logs Tab at the top.
    • The log will be named by the date of scan in the following format:
      mbam-log-2009-01-12(13-35-16).txt <- your dates will be different from this example
      -- If you have previously used MBAM, there may be several logs showing in the list.
  • Click on the log name to highlight it.
  • Go to the bottom and click on Open.
  • The log should automatically open in notepad as a text file.
  • Go to Edit and choose Select all.
  • Go back to Edit and choose Copy or right-click on the highlighted text and choose copy from there.
  • Come back to this thread, click Add Reply, then right-click and choose Paste.
  • Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
