OK, getting frustrated here. I have a XP Media Center Edition desktop with some issues. Here is the breakdown.

1) Last night I get these popups trying to install "Malware Defense". With a quick google search. I see its a scam so I try to kill the install. The install keeps coming back so I keep killing it (in the Task Manager processes).

2) So to stop the madness I install and run Malwarebytes' Anti-malware. It finds some stuff and removed it (yes I lost the log). I have since uninstalled this program.

3) Now my box is in a weird state. Here are a few things I have seen:

a) When I start in non-safe mode, sometimes the icons and Windows menu bar do not appear at all. All I see is the background.
B) Other times it appears to be working fine, but then the Easy Off ad starts playing through the speakers even though no applications are open.
c) Sometimes an IE window open pointing to some website (can't remember the name).

I have tried running ComboFix.exe from safe mode, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Anyone have any suggestions how I can get control of my machine back. Thanks.

OK, I just tried to re-install Malwarebytes' Anti-malware. It hangs at extracting files.

Also I notice that the shut down never works. I have to do a hardware reset to restart.

It looks like there is a rootkit variant in this log. The rootkit itself is a protection module used to terminate a variety of security tools by changing the permissions on targeted programs so that they cannot run or complete scans. There are some new variants of rootkits in the wild right now that will require custom scripts to remove the infection, the process must be completed by HJT team members or above.

Failure to follow the proper removal process can and will cause serious damage to a machine. Recovery of the machine may be difficult, if not impossible.

You will need to run HJT/DDS. Substitute the Rootrepeal scan with the GMER scan.
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 how that went.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/287400/easy-off-cooktop-cleaner-h8srt/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the 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.

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.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
