Hi, I have the same problem and was scanning the net for a solution when I came upon this topic...so I followed the directions shown above, but I'm running into problems running RootRepeal - I get the "could not read the boot sector" error. So I went into the Options dialog and set the access level to the highest level, and I'm STILL getting that error. Do I need to run this in safe mode?

Edit: You know, reading that after I posted it, that was a really stupid question. I'm running it in safe mode now to see what happens. I'll report back. Sorry!

'Nuther edit: Same thing. Safe mode made no difference. I'm getting the warning "could not read Windows kernel using raw-disk reading", but it's still generating a report. When I click on the Files tab after the report's generated, I get "Initializing, please wait..." but nothing ever shows up. If the initial poster does not post his/her report, may I post mine? Thanx. :thumbsup:

Hello,I split this to it's own topic..
You may need to do this first.

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.

OK, sorry for the delay in responding, I had some errands to run yesterday and could not do this until this morning.

Here is the log from MBAM:

Edit: Just read the "Cannot Remove 'windows\system32\uacinit.dll'" thread, so I ran MBAM a second time myself. Here's the log from that run:

c:\Windows\System32\drivers\UACvocpmvertyixwerwf.sys (Trojan.Agent) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

So it appears MBAM is treating the symptoms and not curing the illness. :thumbsup: Awaiting next instructions.

That's OK,we all have things to do..

Next Please install RootRepeal
Note: Vista users ,, right click on desktop icon and select "Run as Administrator."

Go HERE, and download RootRepeal.zip to your Desktop.
Tutorial with images ,if needed >> L@@K.
Unzip that,(7-zip tool if needed) and then click RootRepeal.exe to open the scanner.
Next click on the Report tab, now click on Scan. A Window will open asking what to include in the scan. Check all of the below and then click OK.

Drivers
Files
Processes
SSDT
Stealth Objects
Hidden Services


Now you'll be asked which drive to scan. Check C: and click OK again and the scan will start. Please be patient as the scan runs. When the scan has finished, click on Save Report.
Name the log RootRepeal.txt and save it to your Documents folder (it should automatically save it there).
Please copy and paste that into your next reply.

OK, looking at the logs I noticed something strikingly different: no registry problems anymore, and this time it just found a bunch of DLLs and a .SYS, which all of my research has been telling me that these are the files that get hidden by this rootkit...so being the impatient person I am (sorry! :thumbsup: ), I went and ran MBAM a third time...check it out:

Ahhhhhh, sorry Boopme, you must have been entering that while I was typing mine in...I'll do the RootRepeal like you said and report back with the results. :thumbsup:

Boopme, while running RootRepeal, a dialog box has come up that I can only describe as "transparent"...the outline of the box is there, but absolutely nothing in it, and when I move it around it just shows what's behind it. It has the "X" in the upper right corner, no other buttons. When I move the cursor around inside the box, the cursor doesn't change (to a hand, for example). The "Save Report" button is still grayed out, so I don't know if this thing is still running or not. Any thoughts?

Just a little more clarification: When I try to click on the main RootRepeal box, the PC beeps and the transparent box flashes, so I'm left with the notion that this has stopped running for some reason.

Update Edit: Since I wasn't going anywhere with that box there, I just clicked the "X". The whole program shut down. Re-running it now.

Aha, I think I know what was happening in normal Windows mode...just had a box come up, but this time I can read it!

Error: Could not read from our index block! (Click OK.) Attempt to read from address: 0x00000114

It appears that a crash report TXT file was created from this:
