Hello, and thank you in advance for your assistance. I have a Dell E1505 running XP Media Center with automatic updates. I have experienced trojans & rootkit activity before including browser hijacking/redirecting, but have always been successful at solving the issue myself using a combination of the programs recommended here (MBAM, SS&D, HJT, & ComboFix for browser hijacking). In the past week I somehow became infected again & none of the programs I am familiar with will resolve the problem. The symptom of the infection is a very slow internet speed, and a "failure to connect to server" browser error on nearly every attempt at visiting a webpage. Only after multiple reloads will the website connect and even then it is often half-loaded with missing background images, and alignment formatting. The problem somehow extends to my network as well. Enabling the wireless radio on my laptop and allowing it to access my linksys wireless router causes near immediate disruption in the internet performance and server connection on the two PS3 systems using the same router. That's all I really know I'm afraid except that it seems to involve oevipvyr.sys which I couldn't find anywhere online so I assume is random. Thanks again for the help guys.

NOTE: Also, I just noticed that my Synaptics TouchPad mouse is no longer showing up in the msconfig window. Upon investigation at Control Panel - Mouse, I immediately receive the message "Unable to connect to Synaptics Device Driver. The driver still appears under Add/Remove programs and the TouchPad is still functioning (though settings seem to have been reverted to default as the Tap-To-Click function is active while I have always had it turned off). Thanks again for your assistance, and I hope to hear from someone soon.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  • Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  • Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  • Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  • Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  • Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.

Since you mentioned rootkits, I need to give you this warning.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Rootkits, backdoor Trojans, Botnets, and IRCBots are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques (backdoors) as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should immediately disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned. All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. You should change each password by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. If using a router, you need to reset it with a strong logon/password so the malware cannot gain control before connecting again. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised, please read How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

Although the rootkit has been identified and may be removed, your computer has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because this malware has been removed, the computer is secure. In some instances, an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is another hidden piece of malware which has not been detected by your security tools that protects malicious files and registry keys (which have been detected) so they cannot be permanently deleted. The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them. Most experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read:
When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?
Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?
Where to draw the line? When to recommend a format and reinstall?

I strongly recommend that you reformat your computer. Even if we were able to clean the computer of some of the infections, your computer is not trustworthy and the removal of all affected files may not be successful. Tell me what you want to do.

I have begun the process of reformatting my machine, starting with purchasing an external HDD and backing up my data. I ran ComboFix again today in the hopes that it had been updated, and it successfully identified and deleted:


This alone cured the internet symptoms just as I suspected. I then ran Spybot S&D which came up clean and MBAM which found and deleted probably twenty Malware.Trace files. As of now I am essentially asymptomatic except that Firefox still has a start-up delay that bugs me. I plan on reformatting but wanted to update you on my progress. Can you give any helpful tips regarding backup & reformatting/repartitioning? I've done it all before but tips from a pro are always appreciated. Also, what can you recommend in the way of preventative maintenance from start of the reformat? Thanks again for all your help.

Reformatting your Windows XP computer will erase everything on your hard drive and reinstall the operating system. To avoid losing your data (documents, pictures, music, etc.), you will want to backup your information prior to reformatting. After you have reformatted your computer, you will need to reinstall all of your personal data, as well as any software products you may use (for example, Microsoft Office, iTunes, Symantec AntiVirus, etc.).
Reformatting your Windows XP computer has three main parts:
  • Reformatting the computer from your operating system CD.
  • Reinstalling the drivers that came with your computer.
  • Running Windows Update to reinstall all security updates and patches.
Step 1

If you have a network connection, please unplug from the network before starting installation.
Remove all flash drives.

Step 2

Make sure that your computer is set to Boot to CD.  This is a different procedure depending on your computer. 
  • When your computer first boots, press F8 or F12 or Delete or look for an option to enter the BIOS settings.(Depends on your computer.) 
  • Under the BIOS settings, find the Boot Order and make sure the CD-ROM is set to boot first.
  • With the Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive, save your BIOS settings and exit.
Step 3

If you have done everything correctly, you should be asked to Press Any Key to Boot from CD.
  • After installing the necessary setup files, Windows XP will display your partitions.  Delete any existing partitions by selecting the desired partition with the arrow keys, press D to delete and then L to confirm the deletion.
  • You should now have only one option, Unpartitioned Space.  Press Enter to install Windows XP to the unpartitioned space.
  • When asked how you would like to format the partition, select Format using the NTFS file system.
  • After the partition is formatted, Windows XP will begin installation.  The computer will reboot.  While the computer is rebooting, please do not touch any keys.
  • Enter your product key.  The product key will be located on the back of the sleeve that contained your CD or on a sticker somewhere on your computer case.
  • When asked for Network Settings, choose Typical Settings.
  • Windows XP will now complete installation.  Upon completion you will need to reinstall the drivers for your hardware (Modem, Sound, Video, etc).  Many PC companies such as Dell, Gateway, and HP will include a Driver Installation CD with the computer.  Insert the CD and follow the instructions.  Otherwise, you can download current drivers from many manufacturer's support web sites.
  • Turn on the Internet Connection Firewall
    • Select Start > Control Panel.
    • Click Network and Internet Connections.
    • Click Network Connections.
    • Right-click the connection that you want to protect (typically the Local Area Connection) and left-click Properties.
    • Click on the Advanced tab, and click on the box to place a check mark next to Protect my computer and network.
    • When you are finished, click the OK button to return to the Control Panel.
  • Reconnect your computer to the Network.
  • Run Windows Update:
    • Open Internet Explorer.
    • Click on Tools > Windows Update
    • Follow the on-screen instructions for installing critical updates.
  • Restart your computer.
Step 4

A Firewall is an essential part of computer security. There are several firewalls that provide better protection than the Windows SP2 firewall. Follow these steps to turn off/disable the Windows Firewall before installing a new firewall:
  • Download the new firewall to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet.
  • Click Start > Control Panel.
  • Switch to Classic View if you have not already done so.
  • Double click on the Windows Firewall icon.
  • Click Off (Not recommended).
  • Install the new Firewall.
Do not attempt to run two software firewalls since like running two antivirus programs, they will possibly cause problems and conflict with each other.

There are a few firewalls available for free that appear to be good and easy to use:For more information about firewalls, and why a two-way firewall is better than the Windows XP one-way firewall, please read Understanding and Using Firewalls.

Step 5

An antivirus program is an essential part of computer security. There are a few available for free that have excellent reputations.

AVG 8 Anti-Virus Free Edition

AntiVir Personal

Avast! 4 Home Edition
If needed, see How to Install, Configure, and Use Avast Antivirus
Repair Install

A Repair Install will replace the system files with the files on the XP CD used for the Repair Install. It will leave your applications and settings intact, but Windows updates will need to be reapplied.
A Repair Install will replace files altered by adware and malware, but will not fix an adware, malware problem.
  • Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  • When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below

    This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

  • Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
  • To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER. do not choose To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  • Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  • Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
  • Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
    Do not immediately activate over the internet when asked, enable the XP firewall before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click the connection you use, Properties and there is a check box on the Advanced page.
  • Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates issued after the service packs will need to be reapplied.

Tips To Protect Your Computer
  • Avoid clicking on links in instant messages.
  • Avoid opening email attachments.
  • Avoid visiting every poker site on the net.
  • Avoid downloading all that free cute junk.
  • Avoid using the peer-to-peer file sharing.
  • Avoid getting those handy toolbar doodads for your browsers.
  • Malware is out there just waiting to pounce on your system if you only pass by where they are lurking which may be at some seemingly innocent web site. Be careful because some of the malware are so vicious that no one can possibly save you once you let them in.
  • Remember that new malware emerges every week of the year. Take responsibility for protecting your system because you are its first and best defense.

  • Use a Firewall: - I cannot stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer.  Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
    Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls. For more information about firewalls, and why a two-way firewall is better than the Windows XP one-way firewall, please read Understanding and Using Firewalls.
  • Use An Antivirus Software and Keep It Updated: - It is very important that your computer has an antivirus software running on your machine.  This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.  It is imperative that you update your antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software, then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. For an article on antivirus programs and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently: It is important that you visit Microsoft Windows Update regularly.

  • Use the hosts file: Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them. In a very basic sense, they are used to locate web pages. We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain web pages. However, it can slow down certain computers. This is why using a hosts file is optional. Download mvps hosts file Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial HERE If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    • Click the start button on the task bar at the bottom of your screen
    • Click run
    • In the dialog box, type services.msc
    • hit enter, then locate dns client

  • Use an alternative instant messenger program:.Trillian and Miranda IM These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Please read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place
  • Please read Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers
  • Please read Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer, please consider using an alternate browser: Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen.
    Another good browser is Opera . Opera 9 comes loaded with the tools to keep you productive and safe. Try it today, it's absolutely free. Some of the Opera features are: Customization, BitTorrent, Content blocker, Add your favorite search engines, Thumbnail preview of tabs, Widgets, Transfer manager, Tabbed browsing, Password manager, Sessions (You can save a collection of open tabs as a session, for later retrieval, or start with the pages you had open when Opera was last closed.), Keyboard Shortcuts, Cookie control, a multitude of languages, Validate code, Toggle graphics and style sheets, and Special features such as Full-screen mode, Kiosk mode.
  • Update all these programs regularly: Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
  • If your computer was infected by a website, a program, IM, MSN, or p2p, check this site because it is Time To Fight Back.
Follow these steps and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
Good luck!
