Had Windows Police Pro, typical pop ups etc. It would not let me click open Add or remove programs, System, etc. I found the exe file and renamed it and ended all of it's processes I could find. I did a desktop search for restore and was able to find a restore point from a few days ago. That got rid of all of the pop ups from Windows Police. I have now discovered that many times but not all when I do a search from goggle or yahoo I will be redirected to a page and it almost always looks like http:// z43523673.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

Other times it redirects me to site like vacuum.org or other strange "search sites"


I have updated and ran AVG, CCleaner, Ad-Aware, Spybot search and destroy, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware but the problem remains.

Not sure if this is related but I am unable to boot into safe mode, when I try I get many lines that start with
Multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows
and then the lines have things like \system32\ntoskrnl.exe, hal.dll, kdcom.DLL, Bootvid.dll, \config\system, c_1252.nls, c_437_nls, l_intl.nls etc. I can get the whole thing if needed.


Thanks in advance for any help or advice.


Forgot to say I am running XP pro service pack 3

Hello Jeff2020 and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer!

Let's see what we're dealing with here.

Please install RootRepeal
Note: Vista users ,, right click on desktop icon and select "Run as Administrator."Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug your Internet cable connection.
Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the zip archive.
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • At the top of the window, click Settings, then Options.
  • Click the Ssdt & Shadow Ssdt Tab.
  • Make sure the box next to "Only display hooked functions." is checked.
  • Click the "X" in the top right corner of the Settings window to close it.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check all seven boxes: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • 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.

Ewww

You've got one of the newest rootkit strains out there. Is reformatting this machine an option for you?

If you can't reformat you'll need to move to our HJT forum. With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. Please read the information about getting started. After you have followed the steps in that guide, I would like you to start a new thread HERE and include a link to this thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. The HJT team is very busy, so it could be several days before you receive a reply. But rest assured, help is on the way!

OK Post made http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/261998/one-of-the-newest-rootkit-strains-out-there/

It would be at least a week before I was in a position to reformat, would rather not do that if I don't have too. For now I have removed any personal data from this machine and will use it mainly offline.


Thanks for the help.

Jeff

wait time is about 12-14 days on average right now :thumbsup: I would suggest checking your new topic at least once a day for responses though.

Good Luck!

Hello,

Thanks for posting back with the link. Now for the hard and frustrating part: waiting.

Now that you have posted a log, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
