Hello!

I'll just get straight to this..

I've never really had any problems with my computer before that my subscription to Norton couldn't really handle but my subscription to that has run out and I think I've been infected with something pretty serious!

I have windows XP.
I'm getting an unusual amount of random pop ups that I've never experienced before coming from websites I frequently visit.
When Google searching on Firefox I'm being redirected to blank pages transferring data from "adwarefeed.com" and "doubleclick"
My Computer is also crashing at random times, sometimes on boot up after the windows XP loading screen it'l just go to a black screen with my mouse able to freely move about it making me have to restart!


I've downloaded a few programs to try and sort my computer out, like SDFIX, ATF Cleaner and Giant AntiSpyware, they have all found stuff and were able to successfully remove them but they still have not sorted out the problem!

I also downloaded MBAM, but when i click on setup to try and install it, after choosing my language it automatically closes down. I've also tried to rename it but that hasn't worked either! it wont let me change the type of file to BAT or anything!
I also cannot access there website!

Any help would be much appreciated! thank you x

Please download GooredFix by jpshortstuff and save it to your Desktop:
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2
  • Double-click Goored.exe to run it.
  • A DOS like window will open.
  • Select option 2. Fix Goored by typing 2 and pressing Enter.
  • Make sure all instances of Firefox are closed at this point.
  • Type y at the prompt and press Enter again.
  • Notepad will open with a log called Goored.txt.
  • Please post the contents of Goored.txt in your next reply (a copy of the log will also be saved to your desktop).
Note: If you receive a message saying that GooredFix needs your system to be restarted, please close all applications and reboot your system. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you when usiing GooredFix. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes. Click this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.

Please download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt.
Follow the instructions here for performing a scan in "safe mode".
If you cannot boot into safe mode, then perform your scan in normal mode. Be aware, this scan could take a long time to complete.
-- Post the log in your next reply.

Are you able to install and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware now?

If so, please update MBAM through the program's interface (preferable method) or manually download the definition updates and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Then perform a Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the report in your next reply.

If not, do this.


Please download and install SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you cannot boot into safe mode, then perform your scans in normal mode.

I was able to install MBAM in safe mode last night but the program will not run now!

I'm also following your link to download SUPERAntiSpyware Free but once i get to the "your download will start shortly" page, it quickly refreshes and Google Chrome tells me that the link appears to be broken!?

aww man.

EDIT- Nvm I'm downloading SUPERAntiSpyware from download.com i will continue to follow your instructions!

Eurgh man, After trying to run the installation for SUPERAntiSpyware, i get an error report stating that "the program has encountered an error and needs to close?" I don't know what to do..

EDIT- I dont know if this helps but, after opening windows task manager and having a look at my running processes. I have came across 5 "svchost.exe" running! My Norton asked me yesterday if i wanted to allow it to connect to the internet because it had been modified and i told it no!

But yeah, these scvhost.exe's running wont let me highlight them to delete the process! i can provide a screen shot if that helps!

SUPERAntiSpyware alternate download sites:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/SuperAntiSpyware.html
http://download.cnet.com/SuperAntiSpyware-...4-10523889.html

If you cannot use or complete a MBAM scan in normal mode, then try performing a Quick Scan in "Safe Mode".

Scanning in safe or normal mode will work but removal functions are not as powerful in safe mode. In fact, it loses some effectiveness for detection & removal when used in safe mode because the program includes a special driver which does not work in safe mode. However if you cannot complete a scan in normal mode, then give safe mode a try. After reboot, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Restarted in Safe Mode, tried to run the SUPERAntiSpyware Install and I got the same "this program has encountered an error and needs to close".

Also MBAM still wouldn't start up so i uninstalled it and reinstalled it into a different path with a different folder name and it still wouldn't run!

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Your DDS/HijackThis log is posted here.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
