I am getting my search engine results redirected. Was getting Google redirected, but this seems to have stopped just today for some reason. Yahoo is still getting redirected. Updates to McAfee and Microsoft are being blocked. Am sometimes getting the blue screen of death on startup, which I assume is due to the virus. I am using Vista and have scanned with McAfee with no detections.

Low tech-savy. Thanks for any help given.

Hello ,It would be helpful to have the exact blue screen error message. Let's try to run another scan.

Next run MBAM:
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) 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.

Redid McAfee scan and this time came up with:

Detection name: Generic Rootkit.d!rootkit (Trojan)

File: NTOSKRNL-HOOK

First two links you gave me were blocked, third one worked. Will not let me run program. Asks for "permission to continue" and then quits.

Blue screen only happens occasionally, but if it does I will copy it and post.

Forgot to add that McAfee also showing:

Detection Name: Generic!atr
File name: C:\autorun.inf

and again at D:\autorun.ing

These were quarantined, but not removed.

Hi,OK let's get on these now. Last one first.
Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: As part of its routine, Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.



Next Please install RootRepeal

Go HERE, and download RootRepeal.zip to your Desktop.
Tutorial with images ,if needed >> L@@K.
Unzip that,(7-zip tool if needed) and then click RootRepeal.exe to open the scanner.
Next click on the Report tab, now click on Scan. A Window will open asking what to include in the scan. Check all of the below and then click OK.

Drivers
Files
Processes
SSDT
Stealth Objects
Hidden Services


Now you'll be asked which drive to scan. Check C: and click OK again and the scan will start. Please be patient as the scan runs. When the scan has finished, click on Save Report.
Name the log RootRepeal.txt and save it to your Documents folder (it should automatically save it there).
Please copy and paste that into your next reply.

Ran the first one. Got a message that said "finished!", then another that said program may not have installed correctly and the desktop icon vanished. I thought this might be normal and continued on.

Ran the second one and got this error message:

"Could not find kernel file on disk (C:\Windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe)!"

I will now click OK and try to run anyway.

Since I have two hard drives (C and D), I checked both. Was that the right thing to do? Got an error message:

"Unrecognized partition type 6 (0x6)!"

I ran it again with just C: and got the same message.
This was copied to my desktop both times:

ROOTREPEAL CRASH REPORT
-------------------------
Exception Code: 0xc0000005
Exception Address: 0x0042425b
Attempt to read from address: 0x00000008

Also a file called RootRepeal.dmp was placed on my desktop

BTW the tutorial link you helpfully gave me was blocked also.

OK, then we will try this way..
Let's run the analyzer 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.
http://www.beyondlogic.org/consulting/proc...processutil.htm



DrWeb
Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan 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".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and unheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

SmitFraud would not run, got "Access denied"
DrWeb was able to run and found multiple copies of "BackDoor.Tdss.129" and "Trojan.Popuper.5509", but then it crashed when I tried to save the report. However, on reboot was finally able to run MBAM. Report follows:

Was able to update both McAfee and Microsoft after running MBAM last night. Per your direction, I ran MBAM again with no detections, however while it was scanning McAfee came up and said it had deleted "DNS.Changer (Trojan). Ran ATF Cleaner in safe mode. Tried to run SUPER in safe mode with only the options you mentioned, but it would not allow unless I paid for an upgrade. I was worried about whether this was "phishing" (right word?) and so just exited out. Now I'm a little worried, because SUPER seems to remain on all the time, with an icon in the system tray. Here is the last MBAM log:

Just to be clear, SUPER would not let me run in safe mode either as a complete scan or even a quick scan unless I paid for an upgrade.

Hello,safe mode is one issue and the payind another.That should not be, So go into control panel and Uninstall SUPER. or use Start >>All Programs and the SUPER uninstall application there.

Did you install the Fre version, From the link in the instructions there should be this near the lower right of the page.

Popular Links
Download SUPERAntiSpyware FREE Edition
The actual shortcut >>> http://www.superantispyware.com/downloadfi...ANTISPYWAREFREE

Reinstall this one and run it. If you can't use safe use normal mode but let me know.
********

For the DNS changer we need to do this in 2 steps.

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

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
