Windows XP Professional Media Center Edition
Antivirus: Avira Antivir
Spyware: Spybot: Search and Destroy
Adware: Ad-Aware Free

A few days ago I started noticing some strange behavior on my system. General Explorer usage caused the application buttons at the bottom to slowly expand/collapse whenever I opened/closed a window. I also started noticing random popups when using Internet Explorer 7. These popups always happened when changing websites. I looked at my running processes using Task Manager and Process Explorer, but found nothing suspicious. I then ran scans with Avira Antivir, Spyboy: Search and Destroy, and Hijackthis. AntiVir only found an HTML/Silly.Gen object in E:\pagefile.sys, which is what I suspected was causing the problem. The E partition contains an installation of Window 7 Home Premium, which I was not currently running at the time. My Windows XP system partition is C. After scanning AntiVir gave me the option to repair the file, but not delete it for some reason. I soon noticed in the post-scanning log that it could not open the file. I deleted it manually with CMD.

Yesterday I didn't get any Virtumonde symptoms for some reason. In the previous system sessions (before restarting) I had updated Internet Explorer to v8 and installed the latest version of Firefox. I thought the problem was a hijacked browser. I restarted to find that the popups were still happening in both browsers. I turned the computer off for a while as it was storming outside. When things calmed down I started it back up and started browsing this site and others. I then noticed that nothing unusual was happening. No popups, no system slowness. I thought the virus was gone, but when I startup up this morning I am still getting those darned popups in Firefox.

After this I did another AntiVir, Hijackthis, and Ad-Aware scan. Spybot doesn't seem to start up because of Ad-Aware? I saw the warning in the message box that Ad-Aware could cause incompatibilites, but it hanged during the loading process and I closed it out. I didn't have enough time to check it again. Hijackthis found 4 Virtumonde registry entries and I was able to remove one of them. The remaining three still exist. All Ad-Aware found were general tracking cookies.

As I said, fortunately these are all the symptoms I have seen so far. The virus doesn't seem to be making any progress as my scans don't have new registry entries, but old ones I can't remove. I also searched for all DLLs referenced by the registry in system32, but none of them exist. The 3 entries I'm currently seeing in Hijackthis all refer to the same DLL that doesn't exist. I also have DDS and RootRepeal logs. Here they are:

============= FINISH: 21:10:29.76 ===============

I've attached the remaining DDS and RootRepeal logs. Any ideas on what I can/should do? The popups only occur when I'm using a browser, not while doing anything else. So I can still use the system to, for example, make a video in Sony Vegas. Thanks for your help!

Edit: I forgot to mention I did get some entries for Virtumonde with Spybot during my first few scans.

Update: I've been doing a lot of testing to try and get rid of this malware and here's what I've come up with:

Ad-Aware constantly sees new mailicious programs starting and runs scans while in normal mode.
The program is very sneaky. It randomly creates new 8 character DLLs in system32, usually consisting of 2 short 4 letter words.
All DLLs have some sort of delete protection.
I can't see them in Explorer (even with hidden files on).
Cmd can't see them. If it can, access is denied when I try to delete.
Killbox finds the files when I type in the paths, but then says they don't exist when I click the delete button.
I tried deleting a DLL with Killbox on reboot but the log shows the file wasn't found after reboot.
A random combination of DLLs are threads running in a majority of system and user processes.
Sometimes I can find DLLs with Search (Start menu). If I do, access is denied when I try and delete them.
I can view file properties through Search.
I can rename the DLLs through Search? I think this is just a hijack and they're not really being renamed.
Process Explorer can't find "renamed" DLLs when I view module properties in process Vundo threads!
In safe mode, I killed every Vundo thread in every process, started a new process, and still found Vundo threads in the new process.
The Vundo threads aren't responsible for the new threads in new processes.
Once I kill Vundo threads in safe mode, they don't come back.
I can view DLL properties in Process Explorer.
Ad-Aware's Boot Cleaner appears to be successful in deleting DLLs during very early system startup.
First time Boot Cleaner deleted the only DLL I found on my system, several more registry entries and DLLs were created after that point.
My system is unusable in normal mode because of the contant Ad-Aware alerts and scans
During last normal mode startup the popups seemed to have stopped.
I have found the following files on my system so far:

Update: Spybot found all of the DLLs in system32 and removed them, and I'm not seeing any more entries in Hijackthis. The Ad-Aware alerts have stopped as well as the popups. Things have definately improved, but I'm not completely sure if Vundo is gone. I set a restore point and backed up the registry after the cleanup. I also manually deleted some startup entries with regedit. Going to set another restore point.

I also noticed that small utilities like Sound Recorder and Wordpad were gone. I was able to restore all of those to system32 from another machine of mine, but since sndvol32 was deleted the speaker icon in the bottom right now doesn't display, which is kind of annoying since I often use the slider to hear my system volume level. Is there any way I can restore that?

As of right now, things seem normal, but I'm taking this with a grain of salt.

Thanks for responding! I have all the required logs in the rules in the first post. Since Spybot and Ad-Aware are no longer finding anything suspicious and I've ceased to see any problems while using my PC then I'm assuming this infection is gone (as it was always doing something when active). Thanks for reading, and I'll post again if there's still a problem. smile.gif
