Posted 07 January 2010 - 02:37 PM

I'm trying to help a friend with a nasty infection and I've exhausted everything in my bag of tricks.

I've tried several spyware removal programs (e.g. spybot and adaware), the computer has a full version of McAfee with all the bells and whistles and its turned up nothing. I've also tried to scan in safe mode. Still not clearing it.

I installed LogMeIn myself on purpose so I can fix this remotely, that's not an attack or point of infection.

At one point, I would have multiple copies of iexplore.exe showing in the taskmgr, but only one window and one tab actively open. If I tried to kill off the second instance of iexplore.exe it would re-launch... sometimes i'd end up with dozens of copies of iexplore.exe running. I also had rundll.exe running several times... looks like they might have been related.

The hijack also applies to firefox (though firefox doesn't show multiple instances running, it does appear to spawn iexplore.exe)

I went through and renamed all copies of the iexplore.exe file on the computer to .exq. That seems to have helped (the hijack still happens, but not the duplication). I ended up renaming the one in c:\program files\internet explorer to .exe again to run explorer: still hijacked, but i'm not getting multiple instances at the moment).

I'm not sure if any of the above info helps. This is a bad attack and I'm hovering on the edge of my abilities (and sanity!) here. Can anyone give me any assistance?
