Hi!

My story's a long one

It all started a couple of weeks ago when my antivirus (AVG at the time) kept popping up with trojans, about once every couple of days. Id sent them into quarantine and/or delete them and think nothing of it. Until christmas day, when one popped up (in AVG) and windows security centre opened up on its own and froze. I restarted my computer only to be confronted with a Blue screen! I tried safe mode and normal mode, both of which came up with blue screens. So I went through the boot list to find a working option and there was one! Debugging mode.

I have no idea why debugging mode was the only one that worked but it did. From this lucky break I managed to install Windows recovery and by going through each .bak file (with the repair files) I found which one was the problem, system.bak. I kept my original SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE and DEFAULT. But replaced system.bak with the repair one. It worked on normal mode, no blue screen. Then I did an AVG scan and found 2 VUNDO trojan files, deleted them then scanned again. They turned up a second time so I did a google search on AVG. I found a new Anti-virus called Anti-Vir and used that.

Anti-Vir found a ton of infected files and removed them, upon rescanning they werent found again so I was farely confident. However a bit paranoid because of AVG's failure, I downloaded MalwareBytes anti-malware and ran that, only to find even more seriously infected files! So I went a bit nuts and tried every free AV I could find, each of which found at least one or two infected files. So now I think I am finally free of infection, however. I start to use google like normal but find myself being redirected on a lot of links. I end up going through loads of strange websites when Im trying to get to trusted ones like wikipedia.

Sometimes I click on a search result and it'll take me to ask.com and search it again. Sometimes it'll take me to a fake anti-virus website. Very frustrating! I tried this with Google Chrome and Firefox. Both had this problem (although firefoxes open in a new tab).

Anywho here are my DDS and rootrepeal logs, I hope you can help me, I would really appreciate it!

I am running windows xp sp2- my current AV software is Anti-vir, ad-aware, spybot and Malwarebytes. I also downloaded the Comodo firewall.

Thanks in advance for any reply! Oh and happy new year everyone!

My brother wants to go on his Thanks, and if anyone can take a look at my logs that would be much appreciated too. Once again sorry for the triple post! =========== Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members. Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it. We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff. Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable. Thank you for understanding.

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. If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far. Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware. If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed. Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread. Thanks and again sorry for the delay. We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan: • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links.

Hello, and to the Malware Removal forum! My online alias is Blade Zephon, or Blade for short, and I will be assisting you with your malware issues!

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. By doing this and then choosing Immediate E-Mail notification and then clicking on Proceed you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

Before we begin cleaning your machine, I'd like to lay out some guidelines for us to follow while we are working together.
• I will be assisting you with your malware issues. This may or may not resolve other problems you are having with your computer. If you are still having problems after your machine has been determined clean, I will be glad to direct you to the proper forum for assistance.
• Even if things appear better, that does not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions until I give you the all clean. Absence of symptoms does not mean that all the malware has been removed. If a piece of the infection is left, it can regenerate and reinfect your machine.
• Attention to detail is important! Since I cannot see or directly interact with your computer I am dependent on you to "be my eyes" and provide as much information as you can regarding the current state of your computer.
• I ask that you please refrain from running tools other than those I suggest to you while I am cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. If you act independently it will cause changes to your system that I will not be aware of, which will make the process of cleaning the machine a much slower and more difficult process. Additionally, some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
• Please perform all steps in the order received. If you are unsure or confused about any instructions I give you, you should ask me to clarify before doing anything. Additionally, if you run into any problems while carrying out instructions, you should STOP and reply back here explaining what happened.
• After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed. If you need additional time, that is perfectly alright; you just need to let us know beforehand.
• As I am in the final stages of training an Expert Coach will also oversee your fix. Your benefit will be two people helping you instead of just one, but responses may be somewhat delayed so please be patient!!!!
Please give me a little time to go through your logs. My instructions will be forthcoming.

If I am helping you, it has been 48 hours since your last post, and I have yet to reply to your topic, please send me a PM

Hello PapaLongLegs,

Another question guys, will this affect other computers on my wifi network? Do browser hijacks do this?

If possible, I would council you to have this computer disconnected from the network as much as possible. Also ensure that file sharing between computers on the network is disabled. Finally, ensure that your brother (or whoever else uses your network) has all programs updated, especially Java, Adobe Reader, Windows Updates, and all security programs. Though some malware can spread among networks, if these steps are followed the risk is minimal. To be safe though, I'd caution against anyone using your network to access sensitive information (finances, etc) until the problem is resolved.

Hi thanks for the help!

I ran into a problem with what you requested. The GMER bit went fine, and I have my log. However I should mention that after it, I tried to open google Chrome and got a blue screen! However I restarted and all was back to normal.

So I did GMER correctly but then I tried to do the combofix part. The first problem with this was it was saying I had "avast! antivirus enabled, please disable it or carry on at your own risk". When I uninstalled avast last week! it wasn't on my computer. So I had to reinstall avast! so that I could disable it. Then all went well, Combofix did its thing, found that a file was infected and attempted to remove it. It then prompted me to reboot when it found rootkit activity, so I said OK and upon reboot, combofix started up again (although none of my desktop items appeared, nor did the task bar). It then spent a good 40 mins or so going through each .exe in the windows/system32 folder saying they were infected. The was a lot.

I don't know whether this is normal but I did notice that it always said "attempting to restore file" on each infection, but it never said whether it was successful or not, it just moved onto the next. Anyway it found a lot of infections before finally saying "rebooting windows".

And there it stayed for a good half hour before I decided to manually reboot using the task manager. Upon reboot there was no sign of combofix starting again and there was no combofix.txt on my c:\ drive. There was however a text file called "catchme" on my desktop along with an IE shortcut that I hadn't put there. In the catchme text file there was a list of renamed infections from the combofix text, although Im not sure if its complete.

Anyway here is my gmer log, I may give combofix another go and give it longer to reboot, although it didnt seem to be going anywhere before.

Hello PapaLongLegs.

Thank you for keeping me informed. Do not attempt to run ComboFix again until I advise you otherwise. Something may be interfering with its operation and we don't want to risk damage to your machine.

Let me work out a solution and I will provide you with further instructions.

Hello PapaLongLegs

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps may require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

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 with Networking Support". When logging in, do NOT log in under the account titled "Admin" or "Administrator". Log in under your normal user profile.

If you are unable to access Safe Mode, please stop here and let me know.

Please try running ComboFix from Safe Mode. The instructions are reposted for your convenience. Note that you should not need to re-download ComboFix, but the links are provided just in case.

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

Sorry I cannot boot into Safe Mode. The only modes that work are Normal Mode and Debugging Mode.

When I try in Safe Mode, I get a blue screen error saying IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and at the bottom it has the stop code:

STOP: 0X0000000A (0x3F3F3FFB, 0x000000FF, 0x00000000, 0x804E35E9)

Should I run ComboFix in Debugging Mode? Don't worry I'll wait for your word, thanks

Hi,

Debugging mode gave the same results, it stopped at rebooting windows...

However, I then found out what was stopping Combofix. My hard drive had filled itself! There was a folder called Qoobox under c:\, in it was a file that was 70gb in size! It was made on the 1st january, during all this dodgy business. Anyway I deleted it and reran combofix and it worked!

After googling, I found out that Qoobox is a folder made by combofix, but how was this made before I ever ran the program? Odd.

The log is extremely long so Ive attached it, there was plenty of infections! Almost as soon as it finished I opened up Chrome and tested out the redirect. The problem persisted, I still had redirections! However I noticed that the cache wasnt clear, so I cleared it, and ran CCleaner just to make sure. Ive since had no redirections, but Id like you to do a few more tests to make sure please.

Thanks!

Okay I am still having problems,

Chrome has seemed to of broken, it won't load up any webpages whatsoever. So Ive been using firefox.

Now I never tested firefox with the redirect problem so I dont know how it handles it, but its acted a little strange. Earlier, I was looking at the properties in My Computer (because Im missing a driver from the repair) and Firefox just popped up with some legal deed website! However it has not redirected me how Chrome used to.

I also tried Safari, but that wont even load it, Ive reinstalled it and whenever I click on the icon, it begins to load up but then stops in its tracks. I get the timer as if its starting but it doesn't load up the program.

Anyway as well, Im currently running an Antivir scan and it said it had found "hidden objects" which was odd but then carried on. I will post the log when it has finished.

Did you delete the entire C:\Qoobox folder, or just the large file? Either way, I really wish you hadn't done that without consulting me first. Do you recall the name of the large file?
