I got this virus last night when I went to this website <hxxp://hostilism.com/ht/skate-2-own-the-spot-locations/>. Since then my computer has been through hell. I try to boot the computer in Safe Mode but it gives me the blue screen of death with something that says STOP: 0x0000007b. I started the computer up and using task manager I ended the files that made the virus start and from there I used Malwarebytes to remove it. I said I had like 100 infected.

(or so I thought), Malwarebytes told me to reboot and I did, now I get a different virus. In task manager it copys the file names so "taskmgr.exe" becomes "taskmgr .exe" and it loads like 10 svchost.exe. If I try to end one of them, I get the 60 seconds until shut down message. I ended it with shutdown -a and tryed malwarebytes again and got around 20. Then restarted.

Now I get a message that says "Windows File Protection- Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecongnized versions. Insert your windows XP pro service pack 2 now". (I don't have the cds.) And still I'm getting the Taskmgr .exe stuff, but the 60 second count down stopped. Scaned and I'm still getting around 14-20 objects infected.

I try to System Restore and I get "System restore has been turned off by group policy. To trun on System Restore, contact your domain Administrator."

It says that Turn off System Restore is set to Not Configured on Group Policy editor though.

BTW it says I'm getting stuff like:


It seems that the only one I'm still getting is "Trojan.vundo.H".

Update: I think I've got System Restore working agian, but zonealarm tells me that Windows\system32\rundll32.exe wants to get access of control.exe.

Could this be a virus with a copyed file name because it's running in taskmanager under admin.

*update* I got to system restore, should I restore back before this ever happend or would the virus reinfect that or what? I'm going to wait until I find out.
*update2* So I guess the virus disabled System Restore and when that happens it deletes any possible restore dates. Damn, now what?

Can you run MBAM in Normal mode.

Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

NOTE: Before saving MBAM please rename it to zztoy.exe....now save it to your desktop.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

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.
