Hi,
I've been having "fluctuating internet connectivity problems" for 2 months. Frequently, I get the message "IE cannot display webpage" and on Firefox "the site has timed out".
I've run: Norton Antivirus, Spybot, Adaware, Windows Defender, Glary Utilities, Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware. All they detect are cookies.
My ISP, Roadrunner, changed the modem, I've changed the connection from my computer to my modem. Roadrunner's tech says my upload and download speeds are fine.
Dell, finally, thinks it's a deep rooted virus and I have to re-install Windows.
Before I do that, I'd like to see if there may be something else that I'm missing.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
In advance, Thanks!
Ed

Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

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 Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

Hi,
I downloaded and ran the program a couple of times. I don't think it completed it, it seems my computer screen went black and the words safe mode appeared in the corners of my screen.
I'll try it again when I get home from work.

Hi,
Again, pardon the delay, that internet problem, you know.
I ran the program a few more times. I let it run overnight, it never gets to the Disk Cleanup portion.
Is there another program that I can try.
Thanks,
Ed

  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.
----------------------------------

You have a rootkit
bthservsdp.dat

Now that you were successful in creating a Win32diag log you need to post it in our HJT forum:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
Give a brief description and tell them that this log was all you could get to run successfully
The HJT team is extremely busy, so be patient and good luck
