To start off, I have both a PC and a laptop, and rarely use my laptop, which is what is having the problem.

I do not know whether it is relevant to my current issues, however, I'm assuming it is either the same thing as what I had 2 months ago, and I was either unsuccessful in deleting it then, or I just deleting a different infection that was more obvious.

On some day around christmas I first started getting random ads popping up even when my laptop was idle... no open programs and such.
Deleting it through Microsoft OneCare was hopeless as it seemed to simply recreate itself.
So after some researching and stuff, I ended up deleting some registry files that were known to forums as spyware/adware, as well as the files that were being created.
I thought I was successful, until a couple days later when I used my laptop again, I had another ad open up, and I haven't done anything since.

(If it will help identify the problem, I have my default browser set to Google Chrome, but the ads open in an IE browser, and pretty sure they are a rtrk.ca domain)

I have followed the prep guide that this forum offers for malware removal and requesting help, and here is the stuff

Thanks for any help I get

Sean

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process. Please also continue to work with me until I give you the all clear. Even if your computer appears to act better, you may still be infected.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.

Once we start working together, please reply back within 3 days or this thread may be closed so we can help others who are waiting.

We need to create an OTL report,
  • Please download OTL from this link.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:

    netsvcs
    msconfig
    activex
    drivers32
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    eventlog.dll
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    cngaudit.dll
    sceclt.dll
    ntelogon.dll
    logevent.dll
    iaStor.sys
    nvstor.sys
    atapi.sys
    IdeChnDr.sys
    viasraid.sys
    AGP440.sys
    vaxscsi.sys
    nvatabus.sys
    viamraid.sys
    nvata.sys
    nvgts.sys
    iastorv.sys
    ViPrt.sys
    eNetHook.dll
    ahcix86.sys
    KR10N.sys
    nvstor32
    ahcix86s.sys
    nvrd32.sys
    /md5stop
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    CREATERESTOREPOINT

  • Click the Quick Scan button.
  • The scan should take a few minutes.
  • Please copy and paste both logs in your reply.

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit scanner. Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log


In your reply, please post both DDS logs and the GMER log.


If I don't respond within 2 days, please feel free to PM me.
Please don't ask for help via PM. The forums are there for a reason. Please post in the forums so others may benefit as well.
