I'm working on a friend's laptop, and it seems to be infected with a Vundo Trojan. The machine has an updated Mcafee antivirus and firewall package installed, and I have run it multiple times. Occasionally, it will find something, but never completely cleans it.

I've also used the free online Trend Micro scan, and come up with nothing.

I then looked at some other forum postings and decided to try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but it will not execute. After installation, I get a "cannot find exe" error of some sort.

When using HijackThis, I find some anomalies, but every time I "repair" them, they reappear within seconds on my next scan.

I appreciate any help that you can provide.

Here's my DDS log:

Thank you for your attention. I am trying to get another DDS log for you, however, it will not complete. My McAfee scanner keeps finding a particular instance of Vundo (didutaso.dll) and the machine is very slow. I've turned off the firewall portion of McAfee and said to stop scanning scripts, but I still keep getting the pop-ups about Vundo. I actually have had the machine off since I posted my logs in order to ensure the integrity of the information. So, if you could work from the last info, that would be great.

Hi ladykay,

Welcome to BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal, :(
My name is sundavis, I will be helping you to deal with your Malware problems today.


Please download GMER Rootkit Scanner from Here or Here.
  • Extract the contents of the zipped file to desktop.
  • Double click GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • Sections
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish. For more info, go to Here for your reference.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" , and copy and paste the contents in your next reply.
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

  • If you already have Combofix, please delete that copy and download it again as it's being updated regularly.
  • Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:
  • Note: CombFix has recently been updated to include the option for installing the Recovery Console automatically. The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode.
    This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.
  • Close/disable all antivirus and antimalware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  • Click Yes to allow Combofix to continue scanning for malware.
  • When done, a log will be produced (or locate it in C:\ComboFix.txt). Please post that log in your next reply.
  • Do not mouse click on Combofix while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

  • 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 (<

In your next reply, please post back:

1.GMER log
2.ComboFix log
3.RSIT log.txt and info.txt. Thanks.

Thank you for your response. I'm diligently working on producing those attachments.
I have a question. Does script scanning need to be disabled on my virus/spyware scanner software as it needed to be with DDS? When I try to run GMER, the process starts, then my screen goes completely black. There's no way for me to recover other than a hard power off. I was wondering if my virus scanning software had anything to do with it. If so, I'll turn it off and disable my internet connection while I run the programs that you told me to.

Either way, I'll move on to Step 2 and Step 3 and see if those will work in the meantime.

After enduring pop ups about vundo every 20 seconds for a few hours, I actually managed to get a new DDS file. Those are attached. I figured I should have some sort of deliverable for the day.

Thanks again!

Here are my files for steps 2 and 3.

Also, my continuous Trojan alerts seem to have stopped. I get a few here and there, but nothing close to the 20 second intervals I had before.

Hi ladykay,

Looks better. :( but we still some work to do. Please be patient and do the following:

  • Close any open browsers
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Go to Here for your reference.
  • Please open Notepad (Start -> Run -> type notepad in the Open field -> OK) and copy and paste the text inside the code box below:


c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\atapi.sys | c:\windows\system32\ReinstallBackups\0005\DriverFiles\i386\atapi.sys
c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\atapi.sys | c:\windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$\atapi.sys
c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\atapi.sys | c:\windows\system32\drivers\atapi.sys
c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\ctfmon.exe | c:\windows\System32\ctfmon.exe

"Notification Packages"=hex(7):73,63,65,63,6c,69,00,00

Referring to the screenshot above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.
ComboFix will now run a scan on your system. It may reboot your system when it finishes. This is normal.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you at "C:\ComboFix.txt". Copy and paste the contents of the log in your next reply.

  • Download to your Desktop FixPolicies.exe, a self-extracting ZIP archive from Here :

  • The program will create a new Folder called FixPolicies.
  • Double-click to Open the new Folder, and then double-click the file within: Fix_Policies.cmd.
  • A black box will briefly appear and then close.


I notice you have MBAM installed in your system, Please rerun it as instructed in the following. Update your virus definitions before proceeding. If you can't update the program, you can download the virus definitions from Here and install manually.
  • Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.or you can find from here:
  • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt
  • You can refer to this tutorial
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediately.

After that, please rerun Gmer as instructed in my previous post. If you have problem to run Gmer, please uncheck "Devices" in the right side and try it again.

Hi sundavis,

Well, GMER and I are still having issues. After about 45 minutes of processing, the screen goes black. I completely disable my virus scanner and firewall, yet the issue continues. It used to arrive earlier. I've adjusted my hibernation settings, but I'll keep working on it.

However, I did do the rest. That's actually an achievement in itself, because before using the tools you gave me, MBAM would not run. I kept getting an error after installation saying that the .exe could not be found.

Here are the combofix file and the mbam logs. I made two, because I had to stop and restart mbam. Some infections were found on the first pass and others were found on the second.

This machine is already doing so much better. I am very pleased with the progress. :(

Yes, that can be expected. We need to run ComboFix once more and let some files revert to their previous position. :(

The machine locked up after the screen saver popped up, so I had to re-run ComboFix. I hope that doesn't negatively affect report.
I performed steps 2 and 3 with no incident :(.
The MBAM report is clean.

I'm starting to get realy happy here...

Hi sundavis,

Here's my Kaspersky report. Some items were found, but mostly in quarantine. Please advise.

In terms of behavior, I ran the Kaspersky scan yesterday. It ran for about 4 hours when I had to leave it unattended. When I returned, the IE window it was running in had disappeared. I had to reboot and do another scan. I felt like I had been really vulnerable during the period after the scan ended and before I returned, since I had to disable the firewall in order to run the scan. So, I'm not sure if the infections found in the Sun cache folders are fresh or old. Anyway, I'm sure we can get these last ones off.

Thank you for your continued help.

Hi ladykay,

As far as those infected objects listed in the Kaspersky report, those are safely tucked away in ComboFix's quarantine folder or in old System Restore Cache, which we will be taking care of now.

Please delete the housecall quarantine folder since no more needed. Other than that, your system appears clean now. :( If you have no remaining concerns on your pc, let's do some tidy up and you should be good to go.


Click START then RUN
Now copy/paste ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK.
Note the space between the X and the /Uninstall, it needs to be there.

Posted Image

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.


Download OTC by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click OTC and let it run
  • Then Click the Cleanup button.
  • You will get a prompt saying "Being Cleanup Process". Please select Yes.
  • Restart your computer when prompted.
Please delete all the tools and logs we have used. Now that your system is clean, kindly follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Update your antivirus programs

    Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system. You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
    Secunia Software Inspector
    F-secure Health Check

  • Update all programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

  • Backup your valid registry -ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to store a complete backup of your registry and restore if needed. Due to malware affects, a corrupt registry can prevent a system from booting. You're well advised to backup your valid registry while the system is clean now. For more info: Here and Here .
Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"
Read some information Here how to prevent Malware.

Glad to be of help. Safe surfing!!
