Hey guys,

I've been on a battle for days now trying to get rid of the nasty stubborn viruses. I've followed every direction given in this thread, and I'd say 95% of the problems are gone. For that I am very appreciative.

Description of my problem:
The virus was pretty typical, it tried to get me to buy spyware programs, pop ups, hi jacked my screen saying something like "Warning Dangerous Spyware found, for the sake of your wife, children...you need to protect yourself" blah blah blah.

What I've Done:
I now have Super Antispyware, ATF-Cleaner, Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, Spybot Search and Destroy, and AVG on my computer. All just to fight this bastard. I ran every program and pretty much all of them are having trouble removing a few stubborn files. Their is a file named "chcdbudn.dll" that is a pesky little punk.

After running every other program(AVG, Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy. I didn't find this forum yet) Windows Defender said it couldn't remove that one I mentioned. So I find the file in the system32 folder, then try and rename it, and everything came back. Screen hijacked, fake spyware programs running, fake alerts..

Here's when I tried the methods in this thread. I followed everything exactly as told, downloaded Super Antispyware and ATF-Cleaner, and was pleased to see the "chcdbudn.dll" file quarantined in Super Antispyware in Safe Mode(after over 4 hours of the scan. Weird thing happened, right in the middle of quarantining, the computer went blue screen and restarted itself). I rebooted to safe mode and saw everything quarantined, so I figured I was okay.

Here's the problem, I rebooted the computer regularly and opened Super Antispyware to see that no files were quarantined. I don't know if that was normal but I didn't like seeing nothing quarantined. I looked in the system32 folder and find that same file just hanging out in there!!!


Any thoughts? Thanks guys, I really appreciate your time.

I deeply apologize for the triple post.

I forgot to mention some details about the computer.

It's a Toshiba Satellite, Genuine Intel CPU, T1350 @ 1.86 Ghz, 504 MB of RAM
Windows XP Home Edition

Wow, I didn't realize the EDIT button. Sorry again.

Hello,yes it does seem more and more appropriate these days (the II Tim quote).
I've split you to a topic of your own. it's always the least confusing.
anyway.. the SAS file you refound was it empty?

Let's start here..
Rerun MBAM like this:

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

Welcome to BC by the way... we won't hold those postings against you..

Thanks for the warm welcome. :thumbsup:

Alright, I'm on it!

I'll be back soon.

UPDATE:

It won't let me update. I let it pass through my firewall and still it won't update. (sidenote: I saw "SYSDLL" in the list of programs to let pass through the firewall which is the reason I posted my problem in the other thread)

I'm going to check if I can update from malwarebytes.org

Manually Downloading Updates:
Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.

Hello. We have more Vundo to remove I'm sure.. So if you haven't rebooted after that scan do so next.

When back to normal
Next run ATF and SAS:
From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
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 yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into 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 or Opera browser click that browser 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
.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
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.
Click Close to exit the program.


Now 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.



Please ask any needed questions,post 2 logs and Let us know how the PC is running now.

Hi boopme,

I've done exactly that. The log I posted up was AFTER I did everything you asked. Re-read my initial posts to get an idea. Thanks for the help so far, it's been great.
