Hi, hoping someone can help me figure out what's gone wrong with my computer.

A few months back my roommate complained that my computer was running suuuuuper slow... so to fix this (I didn't know this until yesterday) he uninstalled my SpySweeper. Yesterday IE Explorer kept crashing for no apparent reason, opening tabs in Google would redirect me to completely random sites (different ones each time - tv shows, sexual health, vacation information - no apparent pattern). I tried to re-install SpySweeper but it now tells me there was an error in installation and it can't run (I've uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times now). After reading through several forums I ran Malwarebytes, which told me I had something called 'Vundo'. After running this program several times the 'Vundo' message no longer came up, but I'm having the same problems - IE crashing, Google tabs redirected, SpySweeper still won't run.

I'm a complete novice about these things and know not to just start deleting rootkits at random. If someone can be patient and guide me through some steps to figure out what on earth is wrong.

Thanks!

Thanks for your help.

SUPERAntiSpyware was still running when I left for work. When I came home, the roommate said the scan finished & he rebooted the computer. When I followed the directions to look for logs... there were none. I'm confused, as when I opened the program it states when I started my last scan, so you would think there would be a log for it. But no.

So... I guess I run it again? This program takes a long time, hopefully it will be finished by morning.

Again, I so appreciate your time and patience.

Instead of running SUPERAntiSpyware again, you should update Malwarebytes, run a quick-scan and post the log.

WOW! I don't know what happened between last night and today, but MBAM is showing me all kinds of things that weren't there yesterday. Additionally, a program called 'Anti Virus XP Pro 2009' is trying really hard to convince me to download it. My desktop has been replaced - instead of my usual picture, it's now black with a grey rectangle and red letters warning me 'WARNING dangerous spyware found on your computer'. The computer also keeps randomly opening up my 'My Documents' folder, looking for what, I have no idea. And Windows has decided it's time to tell me 'Warning! Security report! Your computer is infected! It is recommended to start spyware cleaner tool.'

Now, to sound like a total idiot - can I tell MBAM to go ahead and remove all the ick it found? Or leave it all alone for now??
I'm still surprised to see all this crap. As of Sunday, MBAM was telling me the coast was clear and no ick was on the system. Not sure when this all changed.

K, roommate didn't see my note and has been running MBAM all morning. It never comes up completely clean. It goes back and forth between 2 objects and "less than 20" objects.

Here's an example of the 2 objects:

Apparently that's the pattern - 2, then 17, then 2, then 14, etc. I guess this went on for a couple of hours this morning.

Thanks for your help again!

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 drweb-cureit.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)

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

OMG you guys don't know how happy I am to find this thread. I have been fiddling with this darn virus for the last three days. I have learned from a trusted buddy on youtube about malwarebytes, superantispyware, and ATF cleaner. I have been using malware bytes and have been getting more results with it than with super anti spyware. Crane girl, just about everything that you have been describing has been happening to me. For me I started noticing strange things about a week ago when my computer would not wake up out of standby, everytime this happened I had to shut it down manually. The day before yesterday though when I turned on my computer. I got that black background and the grey box too. The difference is that I already know to use malware bytes and antispyware, so I immediately got rid of the nasty virus that was causing my background to do that, or so I thought. Basically all the other things that you were talking about like it opening documents did'nt happen to me since I fixed it fast. After I stopped seeing the crazy background I was relieved. Then I realized the problem wasnt gone. Random websites opening instead of what I was searching for. Basically I have had the exact same dilemma as you. But I have noticed some other things that you didn't bring up. For example 3 days ago when I first started noticing really weird things was my inability to save pictures off the internent as JPEG's and instead only as Bitmaps. Supposedly this is a common problem when your temporary internet files cache is too full. To solve the problem I emptied it, but it still forces me to save photos as bitmap. On top of this I do a lot of sharing with rar files. I was downloading a rar file from rapidshare and when I tried to open it with winrar (a program used for opening rar and zipfiles), I got a box that said it could not open. In my interpretation winrar uses the temporary internet files folders to open the rar files. So again I run into problems with my temporary internet files cache. On top of all of this I have McAfee SecurityCenter, it keeps popping up with a window telling me that I am getting buffer overflow, this happens whenever I am hooked up to the internet, I think the virus is trying to rewrite some of my critical systems folders, thankfully I have been blocking it so it won't do that. My logs from malwarebytes looks like yours too, and I can never seem to get rid of all the bugs either. Like you said there is like a couple or there is a bunch of bugs. Although MBAM never told me that I had Vundo like yours did, but I am guessing thats what it is. So yea this is a really bad virus/ malware and sadly I don't think the regular anti virus programs are going to fix it. Thank you so much for helping us Budapest, because I have no idea what I would do if it wasn't for your advice. :thumbsup: Ill try what you were saying and see if it helps. Hey cranegirl see if you have the same problem too when trying to save pictures off the internet.

This is what I got from Dr Web. After I rebooted the computer into regular mode, Windows was again yammering that I have a virus (duh).

It took 3 tries to run Dr. Web, twice it crashed after running for several hours. Thanks again!

Try another scan with Malwarebytes.

Installing service pack 3 (or reinstalling service pack 2) should fix this Userinit issue.

hey, i dont know if youve cleaned it or not yet but i had this same virus before and the userinit problem.
If you have another computer in your room or a friend who has an uninfected computer, take a flashdrive or empty CD and put an uninfected version of userinit.exe on it(it should be around 20-30kb

Go to your system32 folder on the infected computer and rename the infected userinit (usually its around 100-120kb i think, could be different for everyone) to userinit.bad

Take the good userinit and place it in there(system32 folder), and delete the userinit.bad, then clear all your temp stuff with ATF-cleaner to make sure it doesnt come back.
Then try running an MBAM scan and it should be gone


edit: ill try to keep up to date with this thread also in case you need help fixing the virus in case stuff starts coming back up again, i know im not a staff member here but i think i might be able to help with this one
