Hi GKing,

There's nothing showing on the logs.

What symptoms are you experiencing?

While you are answering that question we will do a bit more digging.

We need to scan for Rootkits with GMER
  • Please download GMER from one of the following locations, and save it to your desktop, please rename it as gamer.exe.
    • Main Mirror
      This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
    • Zip 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.
  • Close any and all open programs, as this process may crash your computer.
  • Double click Posted Image or Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • You may see this window. If you do, click No.
    Posted Image
  • Click on Posted Image and wait for the scan to finish.
  • If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • Push Posted Image and save the logfile to your desktop.
  • Copy and Paste the contents of that file in your next post.


Then

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application or, if you are using Vista, right-click and select Run As Administrator 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 updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Full 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 and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Thanks :thumbup2:

Here they are Mole-and thanks for the help. Answer to your questions-my pointer acts weird in mail reading somtimes and earlier my AV was asking for the license ID and PW ID evvverrry time I signed into my account-otherwise the AV would stay off. Malwarebytes had gotten rid of 'search.bot' and a couple of other junk items not too long ago. ( This AV and Firewall I purchased.)

Hi GKing, both those logs are clean. The symptoms you are experiencing are not typical of malware activity but let's just be sure.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image
Then

Please download
OTS
and save it to your desktop:
- Double click Posted Image and run
If you are running on Vista then right-click the program and choose Run as Administrator.


- Please check Posted Image & Posted Image
- Next press
Posted Image
- When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
- Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
- Use the Add Reply button in the forum and Attach the scan back here (do not copy/paste it as it will be too big to fit)
- The log will be located in the OTS folder and named OTS.txt.

Thanks :thumbup2:

Hi GKing,

I have not had a reply from you for 3 days. Can you please tell me if you still need help with your computer as I am unable to help other members with their problems while I have your topic still open.

If you like you can PM me.

Thanks,

:thumbup2: Well I'm sorry for the delay and thanks for the continuing help Mole. I can't download ESET scanner-tried your way and direct on the web. It starts to download then stalls-even have Defender Pro turned off. You might note my wireless keyboard has been acting funny and freezes. I 'm thinking I'v a worm or virus that it's possibly a keylogger mainly and very good at hiding-maybe polymorphic and/or in bios too, hmmm whatdayathink mole? So where do we go from here...
Other symtoms are: switch back from choices in Add and remove/set program access and default to 'use my current webb browser' when placing IE as prefered choice with box.

Pinging my ISP and losing all the packets most of the time.


IE registration keeps popping and wanting to install-after I've had it as my browser for 3 months now.


Hard time getting on my ISP-keeps asking for PW even after I submitted it several times.


Browser and ISP settings changed just about 1 in 3 times that I boot-esp. if my computer is off for any lenght of time.

Hmmm, not typical symptoms of malware but something you have said makes me wonder.

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop but rename it Combo-Fix.exe
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • Double click on Combo-Fix.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.

Posted Image


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

Let's see what temp files are deleted here. :thumbup2:

Here's the ComboFix log-you will note Mole that CF did not have a RC to work with because when it re-booted the first time there was only a desktop background-no indicated account or icons. CF then asked if I wanted to install the RC and when I indicated so it appeared there was no internet conection(of course) and CF went on to do the staging fix's.

Should I install RC some other way or re-try CF? Did not want to make manuvers here until you were informed-thanks Mole :thumbup2:

Nope, I was wrong. Not a rootkit and the Combofix log is clean.

Do you still have the MBAM log from when you ran it?

Let's see if we can fix the policy issues. It may be that they were altered by the malware that was present. The MBAM log would tell me this but don't worry if you haven't got it, run this anyway.

We need to repair some of windows' internal registration settings

Please read through this guide first
  • Please download Dial-A-Fix
  • Extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Double click Dial-a-Fix.exe to start the program.
  • Press the green double checkmark box (Looks like this: Posted Image)
  • UNcheck "Empty Temp Folders", as well as "Adjust Time/Date" in the prep section. The prep section should then look like this:
    Posted Image
  • When the window looks like this, press the GO button in the bottom of the window.
    Posted Image
  • Exit/Close Dial-A-Fix
Then

1. Download FixPolicies to your Desktop.

2. Double-click FixPolicies.exe.
3. Click the Install button on the bottom toolbar of the box that
will open.
The program will create a new folder called FixPolicies.
4. Double-click to open the new folder, and then double-click
the file within: Fix_policies.cmd
A black box will briefly appear and then close.
5. Reboot the computer so the changes can take effect.

Here's last night's mbam log and one from a few day's prior Mole. Dial-A-Fix stated after it surveyed the system before any repair issues that it could not complete the full dll work-I presume it ment the ie8 files. It shot back this info last thing it did though I kept 'GO jogging'it to complete the ie/OLE sector. All the box's then bcame unchecked.
Thanks.

Info from Dial-A-Fix: Error 127
C:\WINDOWS\System32\iesetup.dll is not registerative or file is corrupt

Version of iesetup.dll is 8.00.600.18702 please contact Dial-A-Fix @ Lizard.net so an exception
can be made for your version of this file. :thumbup2: ??

It's a good tool, Dial-A-Fix, but it can't deal with Vista and IE8 and will slowly become obsolete.

Has it made any difference to any of your problems?

There's not much in the MBAM logs, nothing shows any malware and this tallies with what we've been doing.

I am positive that this is not malware that is messing with your settings.

Your log is clean.

Good stuff! :thumbup2:

Let's do some housekeeping

Delete ComboFix and Clean Up
Click Start > Run and type combofix /u click OK (Note the space between combofix and /u)

Please advise if this step is missed for any reason as it performs some important actions.


Download and Run OTC

We will now remove the tools we used during this fix using OTC.
  • Download OTC by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click Posted Image icon to start the program. If you are using Vista, please right-click and choose run as administrator
  • Then Click the big Posted Image button.
  • You will get a prompt saying "Being Cleanup Process". Please select Yes.
  • Restart your computer when prompted.

I recommend that you download HostMan. It safeguards you with a regularly updated Hosts-file that blocks dangerous sites from opening. This adds another bit of safety while surfing the Internet. For installlation and setting up, follow these steps:
  • Double-click the Downloaded installer and install the tool to a location of your choice
  • Via the Startmenu, navigate to HostsMan and run the program.
    • Click "Hosts" in the menu
    • Click "Manage Updates" in the submenu
    • Out of the three, select atleast one of the three (I have MVPS Host as my main one)
    • Click "Add Update." After that you will only need to click on the following button to retrieve updates:

  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

Here's some advice on how you can keep your PC clean

Update your AntiVirus Software

It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. If you use a commercial antivirus program you must make sure you keep renewing your subscription. Otherwise, once your subscription runs out, you may not be able to update the programs virus definitions.


Make sure your applications have all of their updates

It is also possible for other programs on your computer to have security vulnerability that can allow malware to infect you. Therefore, it is also a good idea to check for the latest versions of commonly installed applications that are regularly patched to fix vulnerabilities. You can check these by visiting Secunia Software Inspector and Calendar of Updates.


Use a Firewall

I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

Understanding and Using Firewalls


Install an AntiSpyware Program

A highly recommended AntiSpyware program is SuperAntiSpyware. You can download the free Home Version. or the Pro version for a 15 day trial period.

Other recommended, and free, AntiSpyware programs are Spybot - Search and Destroy and Ad-Aware Personal.

Installing these programs will provide spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should scan your computer with an AntiSpyware program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

Tutorials on using these programs can be found below:

Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer


That's it, GKing. I recommend you try the XP forum on Bleeping for more help.
