Background: started having problems with my notebook a couple of weeks ago with the Security Tool fake virus notices. I was finally able to get Malwarebytes to run, and it seemed to clear it up. I did notice that I then started having Google searches redirected.

I update and run a Malwarebytes Quick scan daily upon startup. I run PCTools Spyware every evening. I use AVG free antivirus and run a full scan daily.

I even downloaded Stopzilla, which quaranteened files but won't remove them because I didn't pay for it.

I'm unemployed and am hoping to avoid having to pay someone to try to clean up my computer.

Newest problem: I noticed that the spyware program didn't launch last night. I tried to start it manually, but after a few minutes, it stopped responding. The only way to shut off the computer was to unplug it.

This morning, I tried again. Same thing. I restarted and tried to run Malwarebytes. It launched but also froze after a few minutes. The mouse moves around, but the clicks do nothing and the keyboard doesn't respond.

I'm typing this from my desktop.

I downloaded the DDS and Rootkey exe files to a flash drive and am attempting running them now, hoping the laptop won't freeze and I can then post the logs here.

Here is the DDS.txt results:

I was able to run a full scan of Malwarebytes and it told me it didn't find anything. I find that hard to believe, given the issues I'm having.

I also ran a full scan using STOPZilla. Unfortunately, there's no way to save the results log. I was able to hover over the results page and copied down the top 3 most serious results and their locations...

Vundo.Q hkus\s-1-5-21-1844237615-842925246-854245398-1003\software\Microsoft\fias4018

Irito6C97-cfa c:\xcrashdump.dat

Seres c:\system volume information\_restore{566fb8d5-ce4e-4342-bf7b-24c70885c870}\rp445\a0174395.exe

.....
Any recommendations on how to remove these would be greatly appreciated.

One more thing - I haven't updated my Internet Explorer on the notebook. I have on my desktop, and can't say I care for it, so had just left IE6 on the notebook. Will updating my browser help at all?

Still waiting for some advice.

Since last post, computer seemed to be ok for a little while last night. Then I decided to try to run Spyware. It launched but froze immediately.

Same problem as before. Computer starts, everything loads, but as soon as I click on anything, it freezes. I can't do a safe boot apparently because I can't shut down normally. The only way to turn it off is to unplug it.

So, today, it is totally useless. I really need to be able to use this machine but can't see how it can be healed if nothing will run!

Please help me!

I've really tried to be paitent, but this was all the way back to page 9 and I saw other much more recent threads that had responses, so at the risk of irritating people, I just have to bump this.

I even sent a message via the Contact Us link yesterday asking if there was any timetable for receiving help and have no response to that at this time.

I'm crying here. Literally. I absolutely HAVE to have my laptop and I haven't even tried turning it on since my last post. I'm paraoid that this desktop will also get infected and then I'll really be screwed. I updated to AVG 9 (free) and update and run Malaware bytes daily, but it is excrutiatingly slow. As I type, I have to stop and wait for the text to catch up. Once we get the laptop healthy (keeping my fingers crossed), I'll ask for help with this machine.

Anyway, I really, really, really need the laptop cured. Could someone/anyone PLEASE help me?

I think the infections may be fatal. :(

PLEASE HELP ME! Please?

Booted the laptop, everything loads, but when I tried to disable the antivirus (AVG Free 8.5) it freezes, as explained in post #6, so I can't even open IE to get to the ComboFix download.

As also noted in prior posts, I can't boot in safe mode because once the computer freezes, I can't shut down normally. I have to unplug it to turn it off.

OK, I rebooted and without doing anything else, I immediately did a "normal" shut down, so hopefully, if I need to, I can restart in safe mode.

Please let me know how to proceed.

Thanks.

Sorry, but I lied. The normal shutdown did not work. It appeared to be shutting down and then just stopped. Then the mouse and keyboard froze and had to unplug it again.

Right, so I did what I had done on the earlier scans. I downloaded ComboFix not to my laptop desktop (since I couldn't open IE), but to a flash drive, then was able to plug that into the laptop and drag the icon to the laptop's desktop and it is now running. We're at Stage 50. If it doesn't freeze on me when I try to save the log, I'll post it here when it is complete.

OK! Here's the ComboFix log file. Will wait for further instructions and won't touch the laptop for now.

Looks good. Computer running better?

Do you know what this folder is?

c:\program files\seweke

Well, I hadn't touched it since I posted the log. Reading the ComboFix instructions, it mentioned that running it once sometimes cleared everything up, but since I didn't know how to interpret the log, I was afraid perhaps that wasn't the case and I should leave it alone until I heard back from someone.

It appears that the Google search redirect has stopped. That's wonderful!

Remaining issues:

I have no idea what that folder is. There are no files in it. Details say it was modified 10/29/09. Should I delete it?

Should I run HJT and post the log somewhere else? Is that even necessary?

I guess I should update my AVG to 9.0.

Will updating IE from 6.0 to 8.0 help anything, security-wise? I have 8.0 on this desktop and can't say I'm all that thrilled with it.

I may start a thread about this desktop. It is really, really slow. Excrutiatingly slow. Malware bytes is updated and run daily, but nothing is ever found.

Back to the laptop - last question - is running AVG Free (with all the options of the free version active); a Malwarebytes Quick Scan daily and a full scan weekly sufficient? Do I need to download and run Spyware Doctor daily as well? I feel like I spend more time running scans than I do anything else, yet I still get infected. I won't even check my email on the laptop using Outlook or Outlook Express because I thought I was getting infected through email attachments.

Anyway, thanks for the help! It is greatly appreciated! When/if I get a job, I'll make a donation.

I moved my laptop back downstairs (away from the desktop where I had been typing the info). When I booted it, I had no internet connection (although the icon told me I was connected). I did the 'repair' and all seemed fine.

I decided to update Malwarebytes and run a full scan.

It found Rootkit.TDSS

Here's the log for the scan...

******

Do we need to do anything else to ensure that this really is gone? Is it expected that something like this should still be on here after the ComboFix? I'm just paranoid that there are still nasty things lurking that haven't been found/removed/repaired.

Again, many thanks for the help!
