Posted 11 May 2009 - 12:28 PM

Wiped the computer clean just two months ago and everything was fine until a few days ago when my girlfriend attempted to download a "flash update" off a website and then all hell broke loose, basically. Have run McAfee, AdAware, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Windows Defender and others, I'm sure. These programs did get rid of some of the problems I've been experiencing, but the one problem still consistently occuring is whenever I search for something in Google, when I click on a link, it sometimes directs me to a completely different page.

I've also experienced problems with Nero, particularly a Nero BurnRights issue and the program will now only recognize my DVD burner as an image recorder, but I'm not entirely sure this has to do with the virus problem or not, although it all occured roughly the same time.

Hello! :thumbup2:
My name is Sam and I will be helping you.

In order to see what's going on with your computer I'll ask for you to post various logs from the tools that we will use to resolve your issue. Please also share with me any information about how your computer is reacting and behaving each step of the way as we work through this process.



Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Important!
You should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert.
It is intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an Malware Removal Expert, not for private use.
Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.



Make sure that you save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Posted Image


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
Posted Image If I have helped you in any way, please consider a donation to help me continue the fight against malware.


Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!

Hi Sam,

Thanks for your (hopefully) impending help. I should have also mentioned that my computer is unable to defrag as well, that slipped my mind earlier and, again, I'm not even sure if that has to do with this problem directly or not.

Anyway, I ran ComboFix and everything seemed to run fine. Here is the logfile:

Sorry, I ran Kaspersky Online Scanner twice and both times it froze up at 13%. I'm at work now, so I will try again when I get off and post the results (hopefully). If it freezes again, I'll let you know and we can go from there.

Looks good!

How is your computer behaving now?
Are you still having redirected searches?

Dude,

Everything is working perfectly right now. No redirects, I'm able to defrag again and all my Nero problems have disappeared. Do you have any information on what actual virus this was, as the tech guys at Nero were very interested in what could be causing this apparently common problem for them recently.

I am still proceeding with caution, because I had thought I'd beaten this before already and the redirects came back within a day, but I had never managed to fix the defrag and Nero problems, so I'm hoping this has actually worked.

Your help was greatly appreciated man, I really didn't want to wipe this drive again. And like I said, if you have any info on what virus you think this was, I'd love to know.

You had a TDDS rootkit infection. It's a fairly common infection, but it can be tricky to remove.


We need to remove Combofix now that we're done with it.
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK

  • Posted Image



==================



Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

I tried to remove Combofix, but apparently McAfee beat me to it ...

During a real time scan, McAfee detected Artemis!F566EBEC5C37 (Trojan)

File: c:\Documents and Settings\Wendy Hackett\Desktop\Combofix.exe
Process: c:\Windows\Explorer.exe
Process description: Windows Explorer
Status: Repaired (Removed)

So when I try to remove it through Run, it just says Windows cannot find ComboFix. I'm hoping McAfee just assumed the program was a virus and we don't have to go through anything crazy here ... the computer seems fine ...

Any idea what this is about?

It's a false positive. Combofix is a powerful program and because of the methods that it uses to remove stubborn malware it does get falsely identified as malware sometimes. Nothing to be concerned about. As long as Combofix is removed you should be good to go.

I downloaded Combofix again and temporarily disabled McAfee, so I could run the Combofix uninstall properly, just to be sure.

I ran through all the other things you had listed there too and the computer is running great. Maybe even faster than it was before the virus was ever on there, so maybe there were other things cluttering up the computer that I wasn't even aware of.

Thanks for all your help man. You rock.
