In the last 3 days I have been subject to redirects when using Google. I can run a search, obtain results and then when I click on one of the URL's returned I am redirected to any number of sites.

My virus protection seems to be disabled too or is malfunctioning too.

I then tried downloading MalwareBytes. Was able to download but scan fails after just a few seconds.

I also tried one of the suggestions of renaming the mbam.exe to .bat. It opens in IE and then with a lot of encrypted text is states
'cannot run in dos'.

Can you help?

Welcome to BC
Let's see if we can produce a log



Please download Win32kDiag.exe by AD and save it to your desktop.
alternate download 1
alternate download 2
  • This tool will create a diagnostic report for me to review.
  • Double-click on Win32kDiag.exe to run and let it finish.
  • When it states Finished! Press any key to exit..., press any key on your keyboard to close the program.
  • A file called Win32kDiag.txt should be created on your Desktop.
  • Open that file in Notepad and copy/paste the entire contents (from Starting up... to Finished! Press any key to exit...) in your next reply.

    --------------------------------------
Go to Posted Image > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the open box: cmd
Click OK.
At the command prompt C:\>, copy and paste the following command and press Enter:
DIR /a/s %windir%\scecli.dll %windir%\netlogon.dll %windir%\eventlog.dll >Log.txt & START notepad Log.txt
A file called log.txt should be created on your Desktop.
Open that file and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
---------------------------

If that one will not work, try this one



Please download peek.bat and save it to your Desktop. Double-click on peek.bat to run it. A black Command Prompt window will appear indicating the program is running. Once it is finished, copy and paste the entire contents of the Log.txt file it creates in your next reply.

If you encounter a problem downloading or getting peek.bat to run, go to Posted Image > Run..., and in the open box, type: Notepad
  • Click OK.
  • Copy and paste everything in the code box below into the Untitled - Notepad.

I really appreciate the help. I could not get the first 3 downloads to work. First one when I tried opened IE and then had cryptic info and text stating - cannot be run in dos mode.

Here is the log results from peek.bat:

Let's see if a root Repeal scan will work



We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive (If you did not use the "Direct Download" mirror).
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • 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.

----------------------------------

Please note: If Rootrepeal fails to run, try this step: Click Settings - Options. Set the Disk Access slider to High

Also try: right-click on rootrepeal.exe and rename it to tatertot.scr

Now that you were successful in creating those two logs you need to post them in our HJT forum:
First, try to run a DDS / HJT log as outlined in our preparation guide:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

If it won't run, don't worry, just give a brief description and tell them that these logs were all you could get to run successfully

Post them here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

The HJT team is extremely busy, so be patient and good luck

Bad news for me. I tried to access this forum last night from my home pc and could not. IE would not open. I could open Outlook but Send/Receive would not work. I also tried to back up data to an external hard drive and it would not let me do any copy paste or drap and drop. Not good.

I think I am left with uninstalling and reinstalling Wondows. Thoughts?

With this rootkit infection, that would be the best and safest option
