Okay, my name is Jason. My computer has Ad-Aware Free and it has become a daily routine for me to get rid of a harmful process using Ad-Aware. I'm starting to think that they are constantly being replaced the day after they are gotten rid of. I came to this conclusion because of the RUNDLL error that appears upon login. The file that it cannot find changes to whatever process I got rid of. I decided to search REGEDIT for this missing file.

The file was
c:\window\system32\wefeyubi.dll.

It was found in REGEDIT in
My Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{b645f623-a988-4d74-bae0-059387e274d1}\InprocServer32

Is there something I need to do to the registry in order to fix this? Also, my computer has had declined performance. This might not be virus related, but is there anything I can do to speed it up after fixing my problem? Thanks. :thumbsup:

mvps.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D or Ad-Aware due to poor testing results. See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products) More effective alternatives are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware Free.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.44) and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

I'm afraid I have a second problem: I was infected by the infamous Antivirus XP 2010 (av.exe) I THINK that I was able to rid it. I found and deleted the file for it. It was found in C:\Documents and Settings\Network Service\Local Settings\Application Data\av.exe. I deleted it, but its remnants still remain. My browser was constantly redirected when searching on google.com. I used SUPERantispyware to get rid of some vundo trojans that (I assume) were brought by the virus (av.exe) Should I delete the registry entry that was calling on that virus? I was wondering if you would recommend use of combofix. Anyway, the main problem would be that the virus stopped my browser from going to the download links for antivirus software. Therefore, I'm unable to download Malwarebytes or update some of my existing antivirus software. Could you help me fix this problem before going further? :thumbsup:

I was wondering if you would recommend use of combofix.

Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is hidden piece of malware (i.e. rootkit) which has not been detected by your security tools that protects malicious files and registry keys so they cannot be permanently deleted. Other types of malware can even terminate your security tools by changing the permissions on targeted programs so that they cannot run or complete scans. Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a DDS log for further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 7 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the Malware Response Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the Malware Response Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Response Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response 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 Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

I was able to have a friend send me the installation for malwarebytes. Do you still want me to create a log with DDS or instead scan with malwarebytes like you previously suggested?

I have two questions:
1. How much space is necessary for backing up my system (with Cobian Backup)
2. I'm no longer having any problems. Are you sure I should occupy the time of the help team when, for the most part, I'm clean?

I'll have the log soon.

1. How much space is necessary for backing up my system (with Cobian Backup)

Cobian Backup copies files and folders in original or compressed mode. I cannot advise how much space that will require as there is no way I can determine the amount/size of all the data or files you want to back up.

I'm no longer having any problems. Are you sure I should occupy the time of the help team when, for the most part,

Your previous reply indicated (note: for some reason, google still redirects). Since that was the case I said disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum.

Now you are saying there are no longer any problems...Did you take any additional steps on your own which resolved the redirect issue?

I'm sorry, I spoke to soon. Google still has problems. I thought that the trojans that malwarebytes had removed had fixed it, but the problem reoccurred sometime after I posted that. When I checked, it only seemed to happen to mozilla firefox. I might attempt a clean reinstall of firefox, seeing if that will fix it. If not, then I'll mention it to the experts when I manage to backup my system and post that DDS log. :thumbsup:
