Hello!

I have been researching a problem with my sister's computer for DAYS and keep hitting walls with suggested fixes.

She initially came to me because she couldn't get onto the internet and had been told by her ISP that it was something on her end, not theirs. She then added in that the computer was giving her an error message and then restarting itself constantly.

When I looked at it, the error message said something along the lines of NT Authority/System and DCOM Server Process launcher service terminated unexpectedly and that the computer would restart in 60 seconds, which it did.

When I looked up some of the words in that message I was first directed to a worm removal for msblast.exe. It offered a download for a removal tool, and suggested that I end the msblast process before continuing. When I looked in the task manager, there was no msblast process listed as running, not even in safe mode. That particular site did offer one helpful tip that has worked so far though. It mentioned to run the command 'shutdown -a' when that error pops up to prevent it from the restart. That has worked everytime to stop it and continue on.

I then continued to look and was directed to try running Hijack This and checking it on their site. I did that, found a couple of items it suggested to remove, removed them, but no fix for the random restarts. That site also suggested running malwarebytes, which I did, and removed 40-some objects. Still no fix.

I also tried a suggestion of running GMER and "deleting everything in red", but there was nothing in red, and I wasn't familiar enough with that program to do anything else.

I can honestly say it has improved, but it's not "right" yet.

I ran AVG Free and nothing was found by it. I tried to use avast, but it wouldn't install so I gave up on that one. I also tried the new Microsoft Security Essentials and it found nothing.

Can anyone direct me on what to do next? I really have no clue what this 'bug' is?

MUCH THANKS!!!!!!!

UPDATE:

I have now noticed that the computer will not restart or shut down using the start menu. I have to manually turn it off each time.

Also, there are updates that are waiting to be installed for Powerpoint, but they never hold and the icon is back after every reboot.

Any relation to the problem I am having?


===========

Hello

While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.

Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware 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.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to more than a week, 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.

Thank you for understanding.

Hello,

My name is Syler and I will be helping you to solve your Malware issues. If you have since resolved your issues I would appreciate if you
would let me no so I can close this topic, if you still need help please let me no what issues you are still having, in your next reply.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and
we are trying our best to keep up.

  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)


  1. Please download GMER from one of the following locations, and save it to your desktop:
    • Main Mirror
      This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
    • Zip Mirror
      This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  2. Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs, as this process may crash your computer.
  3. Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  4. Double click on Gmer to run it.
  5. Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  6. You may see a rootkit warning window, If you do, click No.
  7. Untick the following boxes on the right side of the Gmer screen.
    Sections
    IAT/EAT
    Files
    Show All
  8. Click on and wait for the scan to finish.
  9. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  10. Push and save the logfile to your desktop.
  11. Copy and Paste the contents of that file in your next post.



Then please post back here with the following:
  • log.txt
  • info.txt
  • Gmer log

Thanks
