I downloaded this trojan in an audio file using limewire. At the time I had Norton 2007 which told me it could not remove it. I have uninstalled Norton and now have the free versions of Avast! and Zone Alarm firewall. I installed GMER and OTviewit and ran them both (about 2 weeks ago). GMER found no system modifications and viewit encountered an access violation at 77d310B0 in ntdll.dll address 00000022 and did not finish. I have run a scan using Avast! and it placed 3 files in "the chest" gsda.dll win32:adan-055 which I believe was adware......kernel32.dll.....and wsock32.dll, it also identified the infected file in my media player and I deleted it (the one with the trojan).

Since then my system has been wierd. IE7 stops responding (more than it did before the infection), after explorer stops responding I frequently cannot restart or shut down, and its acting generally slower especially when surfing the net. Since the infected file was originally placed in my windows media player I deny the player internet access whenever it tries to access just out of fear.

About the PC - MoBo ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe, AMD Phenom 9950 BE Quadcore 2.6Ghz, 8GB RAM, 64bit Vista Ultimate

Thanks in advance.

kernel32.dll and wsock32.dll are all legit system files which are backed up by avast! when installed.

The avast Virus Chest is an isolated folder where infected files can be stored when detected by avast. Moving these files in the chest disables their usage and prevents them from causing any harm to your system. The System folder of avast Virus Chest automatically stores copies (backups) of vital system files (kernel32.dll, winsock.dll, wsock32.dll) in case the originals become corrupted and you need to restore them. The files are still functional, but access to them by any source is blocked until they are removed from that location. You only need to be concerned with files in the "Infected files" section of the Chest.

This is a backup of clean system files, so you can restore them in case of serious infection.

kernel32.dll and winsock.dll in virus chest

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) and save it to your desktop.

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. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • 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 definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

I just realised I forgot to mention something about my system.....I have 2 separate internal hard drives each with a different OS. A 320GB with Vista and a 500 GB with XP. Just wanted to make sure that would not make a difference before I got started.

Lets do another anti-malware scan to see if we find anything else that MBAM may have missed.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. DO NOT use yet.
alternate download link

Then 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 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.

Quick question...I now have Avast!, Zone Alarm, Gmer, OTViewit, SuperAntispyware, Malwarebytes, and ATF cleaner installed.......should I uninstall any of these before proceeding?

Also, in your first reply you mentioned that I should only be concerned with infected files in the Avast! virus chest.....the file gsds.dll is listed there......should I do anything?

The SuperAntiSpyware log is below......(could not run in safe mode)

Quick question...I now have Avast!, Zone Alarm, Gmer, OTViewit, SuperAntispyware, Malwarebytes, and ATF cleaner installed.......should I uninstall any of these before proceeding?

Not until we are done.

Also, in your first reply you mentioned that I should only be concerned with infected files in the Avast! virus chest.....the file gsds.dll is listed there......should I do anything?

When an anti-virus or security program quarantines a file by moving it into a virus vault (chest), that file is essentially disabled and prevented from causing any harm to your system. The quarantined file is safely held there and no longer a threat until you take action to delete it. One reason for doing this is to prevent deletion of a crucial file that may have been flagged as a "false positive". If that is the case, then you can restore the file and add it to the exclusion or ignore list. Doing this also allows you to view and investigate the files while keeping them from harming your computer. Quarantine is just an added safety measure. When the quarantined file is known to be malicious, you can delete it at any time.

How is your computer running now? Are there any more reports/signs of infection?

Seems to be acting better, thanks. During my investigation into this virus (before writing in here) I read that it also hides and makes registry changes within media player to keep from being detected and propagate itself, of the 12 infections Malwarebytes originally found and the 189 that Superantispyware found I did not see any register changes related to the media player. Of course it could have been corrected/eliminated through your efforts or my previous efforts but I just wanted your thoughts before I start using WMP again and allow it internet access.

Also, I just ran otviewit again, and it was able to finish this time. I am curious about some items in the log with respect to the media player though.....I will post just the portion I am referring to.

I don't know what, if anything, avast found/removed since switching from Norton.

The Trojan.Brisv.A!inf threat alert indicates that Auto-Protect has detected the threat, but is unable to remove the infected file automatically. When this threat is detected, Auto-Protect effectively stops the infected file from being run, so it cannot infect your computer. It is safe to ignore this alert.

http://www.symantec.com/en/in/norton/suppo...0090202111336EN

There is a removal tool (FixBrisvA.exe) provided in the above link, which you can download and use as a double-check.

Well, the symantic removal tool found no evidence of the virus. Thank you very much for your help!

Now...about all those extra programs....... :thumbsup:

Keep MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware Free. They do not provide real-time protection or scheduled scanning so there is no need to run at startup...disable that feature and use as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner.

While not free, I recommend using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and taking advantage of the Protection Module which uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware. This technology monitors every process and stops malicious processes before they can infect your computer. The database that defines the heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Enabling the Protection Module feature requires reqistration and purchase of a license key that includes free lifetime upgrades and support. After activation, Malwarebytes can be set to update itself and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis. The Protection Module is not intrusive as it utilizes few system resources and should not conflict with other scanners or anti-virus programs.

You can remove GMER and OTviewit so lets do some cleaning.

Please download OTC by OldTimer and save to your Desktop.
  • Connect to the Internet and double-click on OTC.exe to start the program.
  • Click on the green CleanUp! button.
  • If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • When it has finished, OTC will ask you to reboot so it can remove itself.
-- Note: Doing this will remove any specialized tools (including this one) downloaded and used. All other programs should be kept on your machine and used on a regular basis.

Then 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 in Vista and Disk Cleanup in Vista.

You're welcome.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:Keep Windows and Internet Explorer current with all critical updates from Microsoft which will patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer. If you're not sure how to do this, see Microsoft Update helps keep your computer current.

Avoid gaming sites, porn sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Malicious worms, backdoor Trojans IRCBots, and rootkits spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming, porn and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans, and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications.Keeping Autorun enabled on USB (pen, thumb, jump) and other removable drives has become a significant security risk due to the increasing number of malware variants that can infect them and transfer the infection to your computer. To learn more about this risk, please read:Many security experts recommend you disable Autorun asap as a method of prevention. Microsoft recommends doing the same.

...Disabling Autorun functionality can help protect customers from attack vectors that involve the execution of arbitrary code by Autorun when inserting a CD-ROM device, USB device, network shares, or other media containing a file system with an Autorun.inf file...

If its OK I would like to ask your opinion of buying ZoneAlarm Extreme Security in conjunction with Malwarebytes or Avast! whatever......as a complete protection system, I just want the best I can do..........dont want to go through this again.

Again, Thanks for your help.


P.S. I have disabled autorun
