First time poster, long time reader.

I've come across a recurring problem that has twice given me a blue screen of death. Other basic symptoms include a random 9-11 digit#.exe downloader, spontaneous launch of iexplore.exe, autochk.dll is run according to the registry, protect.dll keeps getting downloaded, and a whole set of bizarre things.

I've run MBAM, Spybot, and Symantec Antivirus and this stuff keeps appearing. I'm not sure if it's kosher to post and MBAM log on this forum without being requested.

Hmm.... I followed your instructions precisely, and no logs were generated.

Trying to recall from my own memory, there was reference to some kind of "Rootkit" malware.

Hello, sometimes this happens and it comes back after a shut down and reboot. Also it sometimes shows up in the Admin or other user account. as you have /had aTDDS infection i want to se if it is stll active. This is a dangerous personal info stealer..
Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    Posted Image
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.

I ran GMER 1.0.15.14972 and had two things come up, I think they are innocuous, SUPERAdBlocker was on in the background, and my company has a security policy that prevents me from closing Symantec AntiVirus from the background:

SSDT \??\C:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware\SASKUTIL.sys (SASUTIL.SYS/SUPERAdBlocker.com and SUPERAntiSpyware.com) ZwTerminatedProcess [0xF5044DF0]

AttachedDevice \FileSystem\Ntfs \Ntfs SYMEVENT.SYS (Symantec Event Library/Symantec Corporation)

Ok yes,they are not the issue .. i think if we run MBAm once more to see if TDDS shows again then we will need to go th HiJackthis route.
Rerun MBAM like this:

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

Thanks I only accept beer and cyber babies... :thumbsup:

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 backed up, renamed and 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.
