Yesterday, i saved a school project onto my USB drive, to take home and work on.

When i plugged my USB stick into my laptop, my AntiVir (Avira) Started flipping out, and started saying things about W32.Parite.B

I Quickly reformatted my USB, but the problem persisted. i did a full scan, said i had thousands of infected files. i let Avira delete these.

Problem, it deleted Explorer.exe, Taskmgr.exe and CMD.exe.

(Avira has a thing where it opens up a webpage and gives virus information, i used 'View Source' and 'Save As' to start up Opera, and my friend with the same operating system [windows XP] gave me the files i needed to replace)

Everything is working now.. but it's VERY SLOW..

I'm running Avira AntiVir, a Trial of BitDefender, and SUPERAntiSpyware.

Any help?

Thanks.

(EDIT: My AntiVir said that my Visual Studio was corrupted, so i uninstalled, and no i can't install Visual C++, it gets an error in the middle of Setup)
Ok, yay VC++ installed. but everything is still VERY VERY VERY VERY Slow

Oh, BTW. no safemode.. it loads a bunch of .sys files.. then i get a BSoD.

Hello IRcOnFuZeD and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer.

Firstly, you should immediately notify the IT department at your school that there is a possible infection loose in their system.

Could you please post the log from Avira that found so many infections? If it is too big to post, you may attach it. In addition, please do the following.

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

IMPORTANT!!! - when you save the file, rename it to something random, such as bubbles.exe This must be done before beginning the download!

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.

***************************************************

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • 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 browser click Firefox 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.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera 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.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

***************************************************

Make sure that SUPERAntiSpyware is up to date, and reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • 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.

In your next reply, please include the following:
Avira Log
Malwarebytes Log
SUPERAntiSpyware Log


EDIT: Since you don't have safe mode available right now, we'll hold off on the SAS scan until later.

Ok, scanning now with SUPER.

and Downloading MBAM.

Thank you for your quick reply :thumbsup:

Edit: It's going very slow.. this could be a while.


It's 2:23 AM.. i'm going to bed, i'll do the MBAM scan when i wake up in the morning.




Update: I tried to boot into safe mode this morning, BSoD again. and upon regular boot. it took 45 minutes. (might be the AV's im running) but it still took forever.
After that, my background went to a screen prompting me to restore active desktop. (i didn't have a website for a desktop, it was just a background).


MBAM said it deleted the infections, but after reboot, avira started whining.
Anyway.. heres the MBAM scan:
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.39

MBAM says its all gone. But it's still there. Avira is still detecting it every once in a while, i cant boot into safe mode.. and Startup is VERY VERY VERY slow.

Hello IRcOnFuZeD. I'm looking into the next step we should take. I apologize for my late reply. In the future, could you please limit editing your posts to correcting typos or inaccuracies.

I know it sounds like we're running in circles here, but we're dealing with a memory resident file infector. We need to make sure we get all of it, or you could become completely reinfected. Don't worry if this doesn't solve your safe mode issues; if those persist we will address them once we get rid of Parite.
