Staff member reported strange behavior like browser not keeping security level settings and search results that would take her to other sites than what was searched for.

The machine is running XP SP3 with all latest MS patches. It is also using Symantec Corp. Ed. ver. 9 with latest virus defs dated 3/16/09.

When I view threat history I find the following files listed:
1/13/2009 InstalAVg_880460[1].exe file was quarantined successfully.
3/10/2009 Flasher.exe file was quarantined successfully.
3/11/2009 tyui.1236777766.exe file was deleted successfully.
3/16/2009 tt_1237212311.exe file was quarantined successfully.
3/16/2009 pp02.exe The process was terminated and the file was quarantined successfully.
3/16/2009 tt_1237226506.exe file was quarantined successfully.

I downloaded latest defs for Spybot Search & Destroy and did another scan. It reported finding Virtumonde and said if fixed it, and advised disconnecting from Internet and rebooting after initial scan and if that didn't resolve problem get help from form such as this.

I tried booting into safe mode and rerunning Spybot's scan/fix for it, but that did not work. I ran another full scan with Symantec in Safe mode and it reported clean system.

So, began looking on Internet for additional scanners/fixes.

Please advise. Thanks.

1. Let's get started with an Anti-Malware Software. MalwareBytes Anti-Malware *MBAM* is a very good program to do just that.
2. Go to Download.com.
3. Search MalwareBytes Anti-Malware in the top search bar.
4. Download and Install MalwareBytes.
5. After the Installation process, update the program. There will be an option for it.
6. Now, click "Perform a Quick Scan". It is the first option.
7. Return here with results.


thanks swordie :thumbsup:

Here is the latest scan log from Mbam. It looks like this machine is clean. However, I've been working on another machine along with this one and am still trying to clear AV360 trojan. I have used all these tools multiple times in differening sequences. I booted into safe mode and ran Symantec Corp. Antivirus v9.0 with latest updates which took about an hour and half with 0 results. I ran Mbam in full scan mode which is where I got the AV360 trojan info. While that scan was running Symantec popped up a warning box that it had detected and quarintined the same trojan. I noticed the word "restore" in the path, so after I deleted it with Mbam I turned off System Restore and rebooted. Now running another full scan with Mbam, but don't feel confident I've really found everything yet.

Thanks for your help.

It is probably living in System Restore.
I prefer to do this last but let's clear that now.
Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.
