Hi,

So yesterday morning I got a message from AVG (free) that it had quarantined a virus. Ok, great. But after that I noticed Google search kept getting hijacked to ad pages, and I couldn't open certain programs. I ran a full AVG scan of my computer, along with Spybot and Malwarebytes' but all came up saying everything was OK (which definitely was not the case). So I ran Combofix, and after that Google was fine and the programs would all open and I thought everything was OK. But AVG just ran another scan and told me that it had quarantined the same virus it quarantined yesterday...so I'm afraid that something is still on the computer.

The trojan that AVG quarantined was Generic16.lie, in C:/Windows/system32/wexe.exe.

Google is working OK now, and everything else (I think) but I want to make sure that my computer is OK. I have a HiJackThis log I can post, as well as the Combofix log.


Thanks,
LAS13

As a little add on, I just ran Super AntiSpyware and it detected and quarantined 'Vundo Variant.'

Hello and welcome. Run these and see if we have any difference.
Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
alternate download linkSave any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.
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.

I just wanted to mention, however, that I ran this program yesterday and even though my computer was going crazy it didn't pick up anything at that time.

Thanks for your help

Are yo still experiencing pop ups or page redirects?

Let's do part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

No, I'm not still getting pop ups and redirects, but I wanted to be sure that everything was cleaned up (mostly because even though yesterday everything seemed OK I got another virus warning from AVG this morning).

It told me yesterday that there was a Generic16.LIE trojan infection in C:/Windows/System32/wexe.exe...and then it gave me the same message today (and both times told me it had quarantined the file). That's the only reason I was suspicious that something else was still going on, because I'm not having any pop up/etc. issues anymore.

Thanks so much for all your help,

You will need to run HJT/DDS.
Please follow this guide. go and do steps 6 thru 8 ,, Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.

Before I go on and do that, I just wanted to mention that the AVG scans were both before I ran SuperAntiSpyware that picked up and quarantined/deleted a Vundo Variant virus (and before I ran all these scans for you here). AVG ran again for its daily scan this morning and didn't pick up anything. Do you still think that there's something else still going on? Or maybe SuperAntiSpyware got the last of it?
