Hi there,

I would like to say hi to everyone. Been trolling for a while, but this is my first post. I'm having a little problem:

Platform: XP PRO SP3 & Internet Explorer 8 all updated through microsoft update.

This computer had a lot of malware/spyware and possible other bugs. I've run spybot (advance and normal mode), Lavasoft Adaware, Super Antispyware, and Malwarebytes from within safe mode. This did clear up a lot of stuff and the computer is running better, but still sluggish and the internet is extremely slow for the service i pay for. I should be getting 85-100 Mb/s, i pay up for that service. I'm getting about 17 Mb/s. I have 3 computers in my office and all 3 are off the same d-link 4500 router. The other two computers each perform fine (90+ Mb/s). I've hooked the internet directly to the ethernet port on the computer as well so i've eliminated a bad port/router.

I've also have run AVG anti-virus free in windows and safe mode and have defragmented the hard drive.

I feel like there is something i'm missing--something the above programs didn't pick up. There is definately an issue with the internet, but the computer seems a bit slow as well. I've thought about doing a fresh reload of windows, but woud like to wait to do that in 6-months when i'm doing a big upgrade.

Please let me know if any additional info would be helpful (fyi--the pci ethernet card is a gigabit card so that shouldn't be a bottleneck).

Thanks for your time,
Darius

Could anyone help me out with this? I'm not sure what to do at this point as i've tried all of the mainstream anti-spyware and anti-virus programs. I have a feeling that i will need to post one of the combofix type logs to figure it out, but i do not have the expertise to understand such logs. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

can anyone please help me with this. I can't figure this out and am now at the point of doing a reinstall of windows. Besides all of the steps that i took as stated above, i just ran ccleaner and it didn't do anything. I have Optimum Online Ultra and i get 90+ Mb/s on the two other computers on my network, but I can't get anything near that on this computer. I'm getting less than 20 Mb/s on this computer. It was really infected bad and something still must be on there. As stated above it feels a bit sluggish as well. All 3 computers are wired to the same router. I've changed the ports and everything and all 3 computers are running off either gigabit ethernet pci cards or through a gigabit port built into the motherboard. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Darius

Thanks for your reply garmanma. Sorry for being impatient. Below are the output from the files you requested (i didn't post anything from SAS as it didn't find anything--also mbam didn't find anything either but recorded a log so i'll post it just in case youd needed it). One interesting thing is that when i check my internet speed in safe mode i'm getting about 60mb/s which is still about 35mb/s slower than the other two computers in my office, but considerably faster than the 15-17mb/s that i get when i'm in windows. Something is going on, but i just can't figure it out. Anyhow, here are the logs:

You have a very persistent rootkit

Now that you were successful in creating a Root Repeal log you need to post it in our HJT forum There they will help you with the removal through some custom scripts and programs that we cannot run here in this 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 this log was all you could get to run successfully

Post 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

I always start with the basic things to try. Did you do a chkDisk, a defrag, disk cleanup? :thumbsup:

You can defrag and chkdsk all you want. It will not get rid of Hooked by "C:\WINDOWS\System32\vsdatant.sys" at address 0xf3ae3f10

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/272680/infected-with-rootkit-vsdatant/ 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:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
