Hi...

I recently encountered a malware in which whenever I use google, i'm taken to www.google.nl...and when I try to click the links from my searches, i'm redirected to undesired sites with advertisements --no matter what I click on. Furthermore, I have noticed that "System Defender" has been installed onto my computer. I've tried running malaware bytes a couple times and it series of spywares were detected. I was able to successfully remove them, only to find that my problems still exist...including the presence of "System Defender". I've tried rebooting in safe mode --only to end up with the dreaded blue screen. Then I tried a system restore...--only to find out that it can't be restored. I hate to bother someone for help, but I have no idea what else to do. I'm running on windows XP. In anycase, I was wondering if anybody could help..i'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Hi Andy,
Some rootkits can terminate your security tools by changing the permissions on targeted programs so that they cannot run or complete scans. Further investigation is required to determine if this is the case with the issues you have described.

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, then copy and paste the entire contents starting with Running from... to Finished!) in your next reply.
Then go to Posted Image > Run..., and copy and paste this command into the open box: cmd
press 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 and open in Notepad.
Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.

-- Vista users can refer to these instructions to open a command prompt.


Also try running SAS:{except in normal Mode}
Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.

Can either of you get in to safe mode with command prompt?
See if you can, type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe in to the command prompt and press return. This should allow you to run system restore to an earlier date.
Then run SUPER>>>

Hi, I would have told you to do that later. I prefer an infected restore point to none until we've finished..
Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

NOTE: Before saving MBAM please rename it to zztoy.exe....now save it to your desktop.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

alternate download link

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Wow so after this exact thing happening yesterday and then getting a blue screen after I tried to get into safemode. Here's what I did. I had a windows installation disc and used it to repair.

After that I was at least able to get back into windows and then run the Super Anti-Spyware. It found 3 Trojans..... then I rebooted in safe mode and it found 3 more.

Then I ran the anti-malware you posted. It found a pile! Thank God you guys posted this. My AVG didn't find anything. Here's the Log from the Malwarebytes.....

I also rebooted when it said so it got rid of the ones that no action was taken on in the earlier scan. Scanned again and all good now. Oh and Also the C:\WINDOWS\system32\lowsec\ was the place that the anti-virus found the trojans infecting if I recall as well.


Thanks SOOOOO MUCH for this post. :thumbsup: Without the Windows Installation disc to at least repair me past the blue screen I would have been f'd though. :flowers:

...maybe i should tell you the process of what i did...

1) Kill off Security Tool ( which was another trojan that entered in by System Defender. ) through MalwareBytes

2) scans again and kills off more files from MalwareBytes

3) Delete System Restore points

4) download avg and find more crap...and remove.

5) download SAS and find even MORE crap and remove.

6) scan again with Spybot only to find Window Protection Suite was still in my system as a bunch of redirect hosts and 1 more Malware which Spybot cant remove neither.

7) go on bleepingcomputers for help.

8) Panic after seeing your post.

Unfortunaately this thread is getting muddled.. All here need to run RootRepeal as it seems we have a dangerous rootkit.

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.

Also, is it safe for me to go on games that require logins?

anyone know what i should do? im just shooting blanks now at this...

it seems i somewhat removed the threat....they were System Defender, Security Tool and others...though System Defender is being recognized as my anti-virus from Windows..

only thing that remains is Windows.Protection Suite which is redirection hosts ( that would explain searches being redirected )

and failure to enter Safe Mode ( Blue screen with 0x000007b problem )

Avg recognizes my csrss.exe and its memory is infected with a trojan or something and everytime i reboot it keeps recognizing it.

MalwareBytes doesnt see anything anymore after detecting a truckload of crap.
SAS same situation as MalwareBytes

I have no restore points prior to the infection date, which was approximately 4-5 days ago...i have points after that though ( yesterday )


my suspicions are that whatever virus/spyware that was in my system altered a driver or boot order that lets me into Safe Mode....
