Hey there,

I have a problem with my internet programs. I have IE 8 and the latest firefox. Firefox is my default.

I never use IE. Recently IE has been popping up with random ads and stuff. Sometimes 2 windows and sometimes only one. It is very annoying.

While using Firefox some of the pages i regularly visit are taking ages to load and others are perfectly fine. Also when using google search in firefox, I would search for whatever, the results would come up then when i click on a link it would automatically redirect me to bigsalesfinder.com and the from that to some other site.

My antivirus also keeps popping up saying

An intrusion attempt by 91.213.29.250 was blocked. Application path \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME1\PROGAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORER.EXE

Advanced details

Risk name - HTTP fake scan webpage
Severity - high
Attacking Computer - 91.213.29.250.80
Attacker URL - inyfeba.cn/?wm=70159
Source Address - 91.213.29.250
Traffic Description - TCP, www-http

Im am running Vista and Norton Antivirus internet security.

Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Thanks

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

To subscribe, go to your topic, and at the top right hand corner by your first post, click the Options button and then click Track this topic. The bullet the immediate notification bubble. Then press submit.


Lets take a look with Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
Malwarebytes
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

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.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

Ok, another scan:

Please run ATF and SAS:
Credits to Boopme

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware, Free Home Edition

Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

The safemode reboot method you have given me is for XP, I am running Vista.
Can you please put up the instructions for Vista.
After that first scan with Malwarebytes my internet is running like normal. Do you think the still could be something wrong?

Those are the same instructions for Vista. SAS may pick up some additional items that were not found by Malwarebytes.

Ok... I will perform the scans and post up the logs asap.

I also want to ask you about a feature in the Trend Micro internet security.
It came with a key encryption feature to prevent keyloggers from seeing what you type.

I am running norton internet security, It doesn't have this feature. Is there a program I can download that will do this for me?

Thank you for your help

Ok, I'll be waiting for you to post your logs.

Also, for the keylogger preventer, Keyscrambler is a good one.

The problem was that some malware got through. From my experience Norton isnt the best.

The logs just told what infections you had.

finally:

Create a new Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
Click "Ok"
Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
Click the "More Options" Tab.
Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
Click Yes, then click Ok.
Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically
