Posted 27 September 2009 - 07:29 PM

Our woes with Windows Police Pro started last week. I initially posted my problems on the "Am I Infected" board here:

Windows Police Pro

Mark (garmanma) told me I needed to create a DDS report (which will follow) and create a RootRepeal log.

I downloaded RootRepeal, but twice was unable to run it. Both times it created a small white screen that read "Initializing, please wait . . ." and then it hung. Then I'd get a warning that Windows was low on virtual memory, my virtual memory was going to be increased, but that certain programs would not run. I clicked OK, and the "Initializing" screen from RootRepeal remained for over 10 minutes. I had to do a hard reboot on the machine. After the second try, I figured that it wouldn't run at all after two failed attempts.

My son's computer is running well now. It's faster than it's been in the past, and he's not complaining in the least. He's had no issues whatsoever with it since I ran SAS and Dr. CureIt.

Here's the DDS log and I'm attaching the .txt file from DDS, too.

Thanks for your help.

Mary :(

Thanks for the help.

My son's computer is running very well now. Actually, it's running faster than it's run in a very long time. We've had no pop-ups, all programs run well, and there really don't seem to be any issues.

Windows Police Pro became a problem several weeks ago. I initially posted a message on the "Am I Infected" forum. While waiting for help, I ran the self-help removal guide provided by BC. We ran:

MBAM, fixtm.reg, and fixExe.reg

Things got better, but I was concerned that we had removed it all. Mark (garmanma) advised me to run the following, which I did:

ATF Cleaner, SAS, and Dr.Web CureIt. Each of those ran successfully, and I posted logs on my original topic on that forum.

He also advised me to download and run a Root Repeal scan. I tried twice to run that, but twice it hung and required a hard reboot.

I was then told I needed to move over to this forum, which I did.

Since then, AVG has updated daily and multiple times run its scheduled full scan with no threats showing and nothing going into the Virus Vault.

The updates that were waiting to be installed in the system tray actually did get installed when I manually shut down the computer due to a power failure (the updates started installing on their own prior to shut-down -- this has happened before). Now there are NEW updates waiting in the system tray as of today.

I have run a new DDS report, which follows, and I am attaching the DDS log.

I spoke too soon about the computer running well.

As I was posting to this topic yesterday, the computer was operating at a good pace. I then ran DDS and saved the logs to post. I noticed that Firefox started to operate slowly, but I didn't think too much of it. After posting, Firefox whitescreened, but closed eventually.

No other operations were performed or programs opened on the machine last night after I replied to this topic. It went on standby as it usually does. When my son woke up the computer this evening for the first time today, he had 33 Windows Police Pro pop ups on his screen. I was not home when this happened, so I told him to turn the computer off, which he did (power button method). It has not been turned on since about 2 hours ago.

Okay, so obviously this nasty pest is not gone. What went wrong between the time before and after I ran the DDS report?

Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Forums. My name is Thomas (Tom is fine), and I will be helping you fixing your problems.

If you do not make a reply in 5 days, we will have to close your topic.

You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favourites. Alternatively, you can click the Posted Image button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic. The topics you are tracking can be found here.

Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools. Doing so could cause changes to the directions I have to give you and prolong the time required. Further more, you should not be taking any advice relating to this computer from any other source throughout the course of this fix.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
  • Please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just post back here so that we know you're still here.
  • Please set your system to show all files.
    Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
    Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
    Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    Click Yes to confirm.





Step 1

Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped 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.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.







Step 2
  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<info.txt (<








Please post back with:
  • Gmer-Logfile
  • Both RSIT-Logfiles

regards,
schrauber

Tom,

I really don't know what to do with this machine. I thought it was running fine, and then BAM, back comes this problem.

Here's the dilemma: this is a 5-year old computer with a meager 40 GB hard drive. We've run into issues with it before not being able to handle tasks simply because of its low memory and drive space. Seems that the more Windows is updated, the more the hard drive is eaten up.

There are no files or programs on this machine that cannot be replaced. My son has all of his music files (heaven forbid he loses those!) already on his iPod. All other files had been previously backed up prior to this infection and all programs are recoverable and able to be installed on a new system.

I appreciate the assistance, but I'm wondering if it's even worth it. With Windows 7 coming out in several days, we could buy a new system for a decent price (the current system already has a separately purchased wide-screen monitor and stereo speakers). A new CPU would not set us back a whole chunk of change, and the upgrade would be tremendous.

This is a deep infection, correct? And this would take much work to eliminate if I'm guessing accurately. Is it worth it for what I'm trying to save?

Thanks for an honest opinion.

Mary :(

Hi,


It could be a lot of work to clean this system, yes. It is your choice :(.

this is a 5-year old computer with a meager 40 GB hard drive.

Hm, I wanna buy the new one when I had to decide this. But, like I said, it is your choice. Just let me know how you decided :(.

Thanks, Tom.

I don't think I have the energy to clean this thing off. I've thought about it long and hard and have decided to just replace the CPU with a new Win 7 system that has much more memory and a much faster processor. Multiple reasons for this decision, other than just the infection it now has on it.

Appreciate the offer for help. The BC community has helped me with many issues before (not just this one), and I am always grateful for the assistance.

You can go ahead and close this topic.
