Okay. So, I recently installed Windows 7 x64.

And it's been good to me. For the most part.

But my computer before this had always been kind of funky. Do strange things, receive lots of pacets (not /sending/ lots of packets though, which is what I would think would be going on if it were a bot-zombie), and have crashes, useless processes running.

I installed this same version of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 just a few days ago, and backed up all my stuff from my WinVista onto an external drive. Installed, did what I needed to do, re-installed some programs and copy-pasted the others over from the external. However, it's been ... I don't know. I was over at a friend's for a LAN party last night, and while we were about to launch WarCraft 3, it said my FrozenThrone.exe had some kind of trojan in it. I called my brother, and he mentioned having the same thing. I scanned my external, and the version on the external had it too. I ran a full scan of AVG, Threatfire, Spybot S&D, and none of them came up with anything, aside from AVG's quarantining of the FrozenThrone.exe upon open. And now, this morning, several games I had installed for the LAN that were working just perfectly fine all last night, crash before they get to the title screen. My sent / received packet ratio was 1:30 when I woke up after crashing for the night, and after I disabled my adapter to run the scans, three hours later it's still 1:7 and climbing. I have no idea what's going on.

Now then. That said. I'm a fairly smart guy, and I clean it up as best I can whenever I can, have various protective etc things running. I pay attention to my machine, it's important that it be fit and functioning. I have a light-moderate knowledge of how things work, but the industry started moving too fast for me a few years ago, and I'm only, what, 20? So I rely a fair deal on programs to keep things on the straight, and yet.. Sometimes I just am not sure how much faith I can put in programs to really, really do their jobs correctly; there are limits to what scripting can accomplish and how effective it can be in dynamic situations. So, I'm here.

Unfortunately, RootRepeal is not compatible with x64 systems and DDS does not know how to handle Win7. Both of which I understand are a large part of the resources upon which you draw to examine problems. Not sure what you want me to do there, any suggestions or requests feel free to make them and I'll shoot back to you pretty quickly, I'm on break from college for the next 10 days or so. I'll post the HJT log, for now.

Thankyou.
~Matt.-

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
  • Please download OTL from following mirror:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized
In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. I suggest you do this and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

Scanned and posted. Thanks.

Makes me feel edgy posting them right on the topic in the open.

Also, these lists are _huge_.

=\

~Matt.-

p.s. Actually, the lists are so huge, that the post was rejected for length. Also, the max single upload of a file is 467k. The OTL.txt file alone is 4MB+. What course of action would you like from here?

Hi,

could you please try to zip the files and post them here? The information are necessary to check if a start point is exploited by malware.

Please also run sophos ark, which should be 64bit compatible:

lease download Sophos Anti-rootkit & save it to your desktop.
alternate download link
Note: If using the vendor's download site you will be asked to register with MySophos so an email containing an activation link can be sent to your email address.

Be sure to print out and read the Sophos Anti-Rookit User Manual and Release Notes.
  • Double-click sar_15_sfx.exe to begin the installation, read the license agreement and click Accept.
  • Allow the default location of C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Rootkit and click Install.
  • A message will appear "Sophos Anti-Rootkit was successfully installed. Click 'yes' to start it now". Click Yes.
  • Make sure the following are checked:
    • Running processes
    • Windows Registry
    • Local Hard Drives
  • Click Start scan.
  • Sophos Anti-Rootkit will scan the selected areas and display any suspicious files in the upper panel.
  • When the scan is complete, a pop-up screen will appear with "Rootkit Scan Results". Click OK to continue.
  • Click on the suspicious file to display more information about it in the lower panel which also includes whether the item is recommended for removal.
    • Files tagged as Removable: No are not marked for removal and cannot be removed.
    • Files tagged as Removable: Yes (clean up recommended) are marked for removal by default.
    • Files tagged as Removable: Yes (but clean up not recommended) are not marked for removal because Sophos did not recognize them. These files will require further investigation.
  • Select only items recommended for removal, then click "Clean up checked items". You will be asked to confirm, click Yes.
  • A pop up window will appear advising the cleanup will finish when you restart your computer. Click Restart Now.
  • After reboot, a dialog box displays the files you selected for removal and the action taken.
  • Click Empty list and then click Continue to re-scan your computer a second time to ensure everything was cleaned.
  • When done, go to Start > Run and type or copy/paste: %temp%\sarscan.log
  • This should open the log from the rootkit scan. Please post this log in your next reply. If you have a problem, you can find sarscan.log in C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp\.
Before performing an ARK scan it is recommended to do the following to ensure more accurate results and avoid common issues that may cause false detections.
  • Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug you Internet cable connection.
  • Clean out your temporary files.
  • Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
  • Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
  • After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
  • When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
