Posted 26 January 2010 - 09:22 PM

Last week MBAM said it found a threat, and that it had removed it, but I noticed my display was looking different. I downloaded several other antivirus/antimalware programs, and none detected the threat, but display still looked odd. Fearing I had a major virus, I tried to wipe the hard drive, but didn't have the install disk, so I had to figure a way to reinstall from the partition (found the info on one of the forums on Acerguy.com). Anyway, after doing the reinstall, running all antivirus/antimalware programs and nothing being caught, and my being able to change my display back to normal, I thought my machine was clean. This evening I ran a full scan using Avast! and it picked up Win32Malware Gen file, but couldn't do anything with it. I ran both MBAM and Super Anti-spyware, neither of which found anything. I re-ran Avast, and it also found nothing. But somehow I have a feeling there's still something lurking on this laptop somewhere. Ever time I boot up, even if it's just from "sleep" mode, I have to re-enable my number lock key. That's suspicious to me, as I've never had to do that before. But I thought maybe my reinstall of everything could have jacked up the system. I ran all the programs listed in the forum instructions, with the exception of RootRepeal (or whatever it's named) because it said it couldn't run on a 64 bit system.

Here is my HiJackThis log:

Yes, still not sure if I'm infected or not. Symptoms have not changed- same as above. Have attached DDS and Attach files. Can't run RootRepeal because it doesn't work on 64 bit OS system. (message I get when I try to run it) Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks!

Don't appear to be any malicious things I see. Let's get an online scan.

Run Scan with Kaspersky

Please do a scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner. Please note: Kaspersky requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) be installed before scanning for malware, as ActiveX is no longer being used.)

If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.

  • Open the Kaspersky WebScanner
    page.
  • Click on the button on the main page.
  • The program will launch and fill in the Information section on the left.
  • Read the "Requirements and Limitations" then press the button.
  • The program will begin downloading the latest program and definition files. It may take a while so please be patient and let it finish.
  • Once the files have been downloaded, click on the ...button.
    In the scan settings make sure the following are selected:
    • Detect malicious programs of the following categories:
      Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses, Rootkits
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers and other potentially dangerous programs
    • Scan compound files (doesn't apply to the File scan area):
      Archives
      Mail databases
      By default the above items should already be checked.
    • Click the button, if you made any changes.
  • Now under the Scan section on the left:

    Select My Computer
  • The program will now start and scan your system. This will run for a while, be patient and let it finish.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
You can refer to this animation by sundavis if needed.

Note: Please do not PM me asking for help, instead please post it in the correct forum requesting for help. Help requests via the PM system will be ignored.

If I'm helping you and I don't reply within 48 hours please feel free to send me a PM.

Should be but let's get a new DDS scan to confirm everything. Looks good so far.

Take a new DDS run afterward and post back with both the DDS and Attach logs in your next reply. Also, let me know how your computer is running and if you have any more problems, issues or symptoms left.

Thanks.
