A couple of days ago, I noticed that my work laptop was starting to act strangely. Certain web pages would be redirected when doing a search on Google or Yahoo and I was getting many pop ups about how my machine could possibly be infected. I proceeded to run malwarebytes and noticed that it would not load. This is where I knew that I was infected with something. I renamed mbam.exe to PLEASEWORK.exe and I was able to run malwarebytes. It found a rootkit but while it can identify it, the trojan cannot be removed. It states that it will be removed at startup and if I would like to reboot my computer now. Unfortunately it is not gone and I am at a lost on what to do. I do have HJT and combo fix from a previous infection that I got a while back but I am still not quite comfortable deleting any entries without consulting experienced users. Can anyone suggest what I should do next. Thanks in advanced.

This is what malwarebytes indentified the trojan as: C:\WINDOWS\system32\uacinit.dll

Hello Edrod13,

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/230861/rootkit-cwindowssystem32uacinitdll/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted

OR


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
