Hello,

My google searches are continuously redirected to unhelpful websites such as toseeka and overclick.ca Internet Explorer seems to crash a great deal as well. Scans with MBAM indicate my system is clean though.

I have wendows xp sp3.

My logs are attached / posted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Heya rustynovice, :thumbup2:

could you please provide the last log from Malwarebytes? Start Malwarebytes select the tab logs and double click on the latest og. It will open in a texteditor. Please copy its content to your next reply. :)

Next please go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.

Remove the following programs, if they are present.
  • My Way Search Assistant
If you are unsure of how to use Add or Remove Programs, the please see this tutorial:
How To Remove An Installed Program From Your Computer

Afterwards please run Combofix:
Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! 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.

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 will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.
ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a forum helper


If you need help, see this link:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Finally please also provide a log from gmer:
Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror

  • 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.

  • 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.

In your next reply please provide the last log from Malwarebytes, the log from Combofix and the log from gmer.

Thanks again for your help!

I have tried to remove my search way assistant; however I receive an error when trying to uninstall (RUNDLL: The specified module can not be found).

Also, I cannot figure out how to disable my McAffe Virus Scan. ComboFix is telling me it is still running. I turned off the firewall, but I don't see anything about disabling the scan (is it because I am expired?).

I haven't run combofix yet, given the warnings I am receiving.

Thanks for being patient with me.

Hi, :thumbup2:

please take a look at this topic: link.

The instructions on how to disable McAfee Antivirus and McAfee InternetSecurity are given in that topic.

Hello Again,

I think I have encountered a problem. I ran comboFix, and it asked me to make note of some files, I did ('skynetswtnbobr.sys' and some similar 'skynet' files), and my computer restarted. ComboFix continued to run - then my computer restarted again, but it will not reboot - it was in a loop of restarting then starting over again. A option for safemode appeared, but it won't boot up under that either. I moved the cursor to the recovery console to stop the computer from continuing that loop (I am typing from a secondary computer). But I haven't done anthing in that screen. It is currently asking me 'which windows installation would you like to log onto'.

You'll have to forgive me a I am not very knowledgable about computers!

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards.

Hi Rustynovice,

that obviously didn't work out as we expected. We are going to restore your PC to the status before running Combofix:

Please copy the exact name and paths of the files that got deleted, everything you have written down about them, before Combofix rebooted your PC.

Then
1. Restart your computer
2. Before Windows loads, you will be prompted to choose which Operating System to start
3. Use the up and down arrow key to select Microsoft Windows Recovery Console
4. You must enter which Windows installation to log onto. Type 1 and press enter.
5. At the C:\Windows prompt, type the following bolded text, and press Enter:

cd erdnt\subs

6. At the next prompt, type the following bolded text, and press Enter:

batch erdnt.con

7. The erunt backups will begin copying.
8. At the next prompt, type the following bolded text, and before beginning a new line press Enter:

set AllowAllPaths=TRUE
set AllowRemovableMedia =TRUE

9. At the next prompt type the following bolded text, and press Enter:

cd C:\qoobox

10. Please insert your USB-stick or similar before proceeding.
11. At the next prompt type the following bolded text, and press Enter:

copy Combofix-quarantined-files.txt X:\
Note:Please replace X with the Driverletter of your USB-drive

12. The command should then show 1 file(s) copied. At the next prompt type the following bolded text, and press Enter:

13 At the next prompt type the following bolded text, and press Enter:

exit

Windows will now begin loading.

If Windows loads successfully please say so. Else please connect your USB drive to your second PC and copy the content of the file Combofix-quarantined-files.txt in your next reply.

regards _temp_

Hi _Temp_,

The files ComboFix listed were:

System32\drivers\SKYNETswtnbobr.sys
System32\SKYNETrfxjvrv.dll
System32\SKYNETiqqrutfa.dat
System32\SKYNETklrmhmbp.dll
System32\SKYNETxwqtlwbw.dat

And I run into a problem with step 6 above. My computers says "The system cannot find the file or directory specified." That doesn't sound good.

Any thoughts on next steps?

Thanks!

Hi,

do you get that message after you type in "cd erdnt\subs" or after you type "batch erdnt.con"?

Oops. I had a typo when I was typing that (.com instead of .con). However, I am now trying to type "set AllowAllPaths=TRUE" and it is telling me "The parameter is not valid."

Hi,

glad to hear, that worked. :thumbup2:

This is a typo on my part, sorry. There need to be spaces before and after the =:

set AllowAllPaths = TRUE
set AllowRemovableMedia = TRUE

Getting closer each time :-)

"The system cannot find the file specified." when I type "copy Combofix-quarantined-files.txt F:\" I am not certain of my USB drive letter. I have two slots on the front and two CD drives. I have the USB drive plugged into the top slot on the front. I have tried E F G and H.

Thanks!

Hi, :thumbup2:

Can you give me the line in front of your cursor? It should be something like "C:\qoobox,"
if it isn't please enter into your commandline again and hit enter.

cd C:\qoobox

Afterwards please type the following command in the console and hit enter:

dir

this should give you back the creation date and the name of the files present in that folder. Is combofix-quarantined-files.txt present in that list?

It was "C:qoobox>". I typed "dir" and it is telling me I have 8 files. It isn't clear what is listed here, but eight things are listed. The top one says "d------ 0 ." There is a line that says "d------- 0 Quarantine". Above that one is a line that says "-a----- 2442 LogA". Other lines contain the text "Test C" "BackEnv" and "LastRun". Is any of this meaningful?
