I installed Mcafee after the trial version expired. During install it said I should allow pop-ups in internet explorer. thereafter, I forgot to turn it back on. About a week later I received a notice from Mcafee that I had viruses. I ran a system scan and it found multiple viruses (ie. tdss and vundos). They were deleted. However, the vundos keep comming back. thus, I downloaded MBAM and SAS they found vundo variants and deleted them. However, these suckers keep coming back. I download Hijackthis and I am hoping you will help. I think it may be using agent.exe due to its high cpu usage. My original symptoms were pop-up ads for nexplore and some anti-virus programs. However, I haven't seen them after running MBAM and SAS. Nonetheless, I continue to have redirect problems. Perhaps if I wait long enough without running MBAM or SAS the pop-ups will come back as well. Thanks for your help in advance

Hello

TDSS is a very bad rootkit which will require specialized tools restricted to the HiJack This forum to get rid of it. Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you cannot produce the DDS logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/292374/tdss-and-vundo-malware-infection/ 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:
