OPERATING SYSTEM:
Windows XP Service Pack 3

HOW IT STARTED:
I got one of those fake warning messages that was in the broadcast media here not too long ago warning me to download antivirus software or face the consequences. Of course, no matter what you click you’re infected already right? So I clicked the ‘red x’ to close the window, then began my adventure with the my latest Trojan.

WHAT I HAVE DONE:
Ran AVG scan, in addition to scheduled scans: Detected and ‘removed’ Restart carried out as AVG requested. Resident shield still detecting Trojan.
Ran Malwarbytes scan: Detected and ‘removed’
Ran system restore to point about a week before infection, removed “fake warning” mentioned above.

WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW.
Pop up window – spam – opens on first opening Internet Explorer after turning computer on or restart.
Google searching: type search words into Australian google - google.com.au, get search results from google.co.uk with ‘pages from the UK’ option rather than Australia in search bar next to Google logo above search results
Occasional redirects from google search results to some spam page, rather than actual desired/expected page – ESPECIALLY when searching for anything with “bleeping computer” in the search bar.
AVG resident shield still detecting Generic 16JP Trojan, every 5 mins or so depending on how busy I am on the net, also detecting many tracking cookies.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer. My name is Computer Pro and I will be helping you with your issues.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

To subscribe, go to your topic, and at the top right hand corner by your first post, click the Options button and then click Track this topic. Then bullet the immediate notification bubble. Finally, press submit.



Please download Dr. Web the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Scan with Dr. Web Cureit as follows:
• Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
• Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
• The Express scan will automatically begin.
(This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
• If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
• If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
• When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
(This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
• Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
• In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
• Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
• When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
• Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
• In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
• Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
• Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
• Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
• After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

How are things?

Then update your Malwarebytes by going to the Update Tab, and then rerun a Full Scan and post back the log.

Things are ok.

When I try to start Malwarebytes, this is what happens: A small "Security Warning" appears with a big red X and the warning "Application cannot be executed. The file mbam.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" with the option to click either "Yes" or "No".

What should I do now? Thanks.

Interestingly, the same thing happens when I try to run the task manager. Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete results in the task manager appearing for the briefest of moments, then the same "Security Warning" with the words "Application cannot be exexuted. The file taskmgr.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" with the option to click either "Yes" or "No".

Same thing happens when I try to open the Windows Firewall - same warning, filename: rundll32.exe. Though, for the briefest of moments I can see that the windows firewall displays as on.

edit: in fact, any program I try to start, be it Word, or Adobe Reader, anything, fails to do so and gets the same warning with appropriate filename. Except for Internet explorer.

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.

Link 2
Link 3
Link 4


Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

Do not reboot the computer or you will have to run it again

Then try to run a scan with Malwarebytes.

Apologies for the delay. Computer was completely overwhelmed by the malicious software, such that the only thing that worked was the oportunity to purchase bogus "antispyware" software. A form of cyber-extortion I suppose. Anyway, I took the computer to a local technician who successfully removed the malware and repaired my computer.

Thanks for your assistance, you may close the thread if you wish.
