Ok, so about a month ago I managed to pickup something rather nasty. I scanned with a few different free antivirus programs, trying to get the most comprehensive coverage possible and wipe it all out. They were AVG Free, A Squared Free, and Malwarebytes. Here's just a selection of some of the things that I've got quarantined from the last month of scanning with these programs...

Virus.Win32.Virtumonde!IK
Trojan.Win32.Agent!IK
Hoax.Win32.Agent.fu!A2
Trace.Registry.Blubster
Trojan.DNSChanger
Trojan.Agent
Trojan.Zlob.H
Trojan.FakeAlert
Spyware.StolenData
Trojan.Spambot
Backdoor.Bot
Rootkit.Trace
Trojan.Downloader
Rogue.Multiple
Trojan.BHO

Nice huh! I noticed that antivirus websites were being blocked in IE, especially when using my Google toolbar, and a very large amount of the infections being found were located in both the IE and Mozilla Firefox "Temp" directories, as well as my documents and settings/temp directory. I haven't even used Firefox in many months, so I imediately uninstalled it. I also deleted my IE/temp directory, and documents&settings/temp directory. After rescanning, this seemed to give my antivirus a bit of a foothold, and for the first time so far, it seemed like I was winning the battle.

Scans eventually came up clean, and while I was still suspicious, at least my laptop worked again and I can use it for the necessities.

Of course, the problem wasn't completely solved, and a couple of weeks later, it's came back. Sure enough, more scans reveal more virus stuff. This time around and friend told me about ComboFix, and the success he had using that. (Sorry, I've just read on BC that I shouldn't use Combofix without the help of someone who knows what they're doing, but I'm not going to lie and say I haven't used it to try and speed up my response time.) I run combofix, but the logfile is too tech for me to really know if it did any good or not. After combofix I scan with Malwarebytes again, which finds one infection. I scan with a new program, SUPERAntiSpyware Free (another recommended antivirus) and it seems to only find adware tracking cookies.

I do some reading and research, and remember Windows Update. I did have it turned off at one time because I thought it was clogging up system resources, but it was actually set to still download updates after prompting me. I don't remember being prompted in months about downloading any updates. Windows update seems to no be doing anything, so I try the Microsoft Update website, and now that comes up with error 0x80070002 whenever I try to used their active X update control. I look for fixes for this, but nothing works. When I manually try and download a suggested update, my computer shuts it down claiming continuing will cause damage. When I attempt to connect to Windows Live Chat Help, it fails every time. When I run services.msc, Automatic Updates is turned off, (despite Control Panel telling me that it is active,) and when I try and turn it on I get Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

Despite my scans coming back clean, there still seems to be something screwing with my system.

I really don't know what else to do here, which is why I'm coming you to guys. Hopefully you can help me out here and save my little laptop. I really can't afford to reformat and lose some of the really important things I have on it. Here's some system information to hopefully help you guys out some more.

Microsoft Windows Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp/080413-2111 : Service Pack 3)

Dell Inspiron I6400
Intel Core2 CPU
T5600 @ 1.83GHz
987 MHz, 2.00 GB of RAM
Physical Address Extension

Sorry for the monster post, I hope I haven't blabbered too much, and actually given you usefull info. Thanks again for your help and I look forward to hearing from you. :thumbsup:

Thanks Boopme. Here's the SuperAnti log:

SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log
http://www.superantispyware.com

Generated 03/27/2009 at 01:33 AM

Application Version : 4.26.1000

Core Rules Database Version : 3817

No threats, which is good news... But I'm still having problems when I try and do anything Windows Update related. Still getting the 0x80070002 error when I try and update from the Microsoft website or try to install anything update related. Then here's the error I get when I try and log into their online chat help centre:

Internet Explorer has closed this webpage to help protect your computer

A malfunctioning or malicious add-on has caused Internet Explorer to close this webpage.
What you can do:
Go to your home page

Try to return to microsoft.com

More information

Windows Data Execution Prevention detected an add-on trying to use system memory incorrectly. This can be caused by a malfunction or a malicious add-on.

Other things you can do:

Go online to learn about the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) security feature

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Doesn't make sense to me that IE would class Microsoft.com as a malicious site, or their web help as causing damage. Any ideas?

Hello, do you use Kaspersky and run Firefox as your browser?
let's also get a quick MBAm scan.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.35) 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.

Negative on using either Kapersky or Firefox. I use IE and recently updated it to version 8. Here's the MB log you asked for:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.35
Database version: 1912
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3

Time elapsed: 3 minute(s), 36 second(s)

Memory Processes Infected: 0
Memory Modules Infected: 0
Registry Keys Infected: 0
Registry Values Infected: 0
Registry Data Items Infected: 0
Folders Infected: 0
Files Infected: 0

Memory Processes Infected:

Memory Modules Infected:

Registry Keys Infected:

Registry Values Infected:

Registry Data Items Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Folders Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Files Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again, nothing, but I'm still having all the same problems with Windows Update. The help centre/knowledge database suggests to download an update for service pack 3 manually, which leads to the same "Internet Explorer has closed this webpage to help protect your computer " error and won't let me download the update.

Hi again I think Un and Re installing SP3 may help. Let's run one more tool here, run SDFix
Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Hello how is it running now/ i want to run another fast scan to check the DNS please. Thanks for the kind words, I am swamped here the last 2 daays. I still have 4 from yesterday nite to figure out but I'll make it.

Part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

As far as how things are running, I'm still having the same issues with windows update. I didn't mention this originally, because I assumed it was due to the viruses that I'd already found, but I was having problems with opening a track in Ableton Live that I'd been working on for about a week. This is still an issue, and while it might be some sort of other conflict or error, it started crashing the same time everything else started acting wierd. I know this is a seperate problem as far as you're concerned, so I don't really want to bother you with it, but I was sure cleaning up whatever was hijacking other parts of my system would take care of it. Fingers crossed this is still the case. Thanks again for your help. :flowers:

Hi, thanks foir the break. We got more to get off here and we'll run Part2. Then a FULL MBam scan.
That program is a musical ting and one file in the last log MAY have referenced it. Is it an application that you can easily uninstall and reinstall without losing your work? If so do that to as it may have corrupted files.

Part 2 Smitfraud
You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart anyway into normal Windows. A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt


Rerun MBAM

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select FULL scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Yeah, that is a music program and I'm not sure whether uninstalling it will delete previous data such as recorded audio tracks, projects or completed tunes. That's why I still have previous versions of it on my machine as I'm kind of scared about what is going to be uninstalled, and I'm not entirely confident of exactly what I should backup if I want to keep the music I've worked on. Anyway, I'll look try and look into it maybe on another machine while I run the scans you mention above, and I'll get back to you soon with the logfiles.

Maybe this will help your decision.
2 guidelines/rules when backing up

1) Backup all your important data files, pictures, music, work etc... and save it onto an external hard-drive. These files usually include .doc, .txt, .mp3, .jpg etc...
2) Do not backup any executables files or any window files. These include .exe's, .scr, .com, .pif etc... as they may contain traces of malware. Also, .html or .htm files that are webpages should also be avoided.

Thanks man, the trouble is that I'm not exactly sure of how and where my raw audio gets saved, along with all the other bits and pieces that go together to make up an entire project. Any particular track can have hundreds of little raw audio clips or samples that get put together, along with midi data, Virtual Instrument and Effect data and Equaliser data, like a big jigsaw puzzle to create an entire song. Now I know a lot of this info is saved in the project file itself, but I'm not sure where all the little bits and pieces and samples that this file references are always kept. It might be really simple and I'm reading too much into it, but it seems to me to be pretty complicated. There's a lot of info in there for any given track.

Anyway, this really isn't something I should be bothering you with, so don't worry about it. Thanks for trying to help out, but that's definitely something I should be putting the time in myself to research and I know you've already got enough on your plate as it is. Now as far as your area of expertise, here's those Smitfraud and Mbam logs you needed:

I'm guessing this was from the registry clean that Smitfraud did, but when I rebooted in regular mode to launch the Mbam scan my background had disappeared and was replaced with the default flat light blue. Also something popped up (I think it was SUPERAntispyware - that seems to have installed a startup process to automatically fire up on Windows reboot even though I didn't tell it to) telling me that something was trying to change my browsers homepage. It appears to be some sort of MSN news page or something. When I fired up IE to come back here to BC, I was again informed that something was trying to change my default browser. Like I said, I gather this is just a result of IE's default settings after a registry clean, but you're the expert, not me :thumbsup:

Yes the tools have changed registry settings. Do you have SpytBot installed? Do you need help reseeting your home page?

No, thanks I'm good with putting all that stuff back the way it was and yeah I do appear to have spybot installed on here from a tangle with something malicious a while ago I guess. Still getting all the same problems with Windows Update. What's the next step?
