if you can go to malwarebytes.org, download mbam, install and do a full scan, and tell us what you found

Hello :thumbsup:

You may need to go to a different (clean, uninfected) computer so you can download "fixes" and carry them to the infected computer by way of a CD or a USB flash drive.

Use ATF Cleaner:
http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=c...5&Itemid=25

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Notes for Windows Vista users:
On Windows Vista that "Windows Temp" is disabled, to empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator"

Run RKill:
http://www.technibble.com/rkill-repair-tool-of-the-week/
Rkill is a small, freeware and portable tool designed to terminate active malware processes allowing you to use other removal tools. Rkill is made by a Microsoft MVP “Lawrence Abrams” and is available in 4 different extensions. An .EXE, .COM, .SCR and a .PIF file.
The reason why Rkill comes in 4 different versions is because some malware will block .EXE files in an attempt to prevent you from running other malware removal tools, so this gets around that problem.

Following are instructions for the ESET scan given to me by etavares (a member of the Malware Response Team):

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

When you report back, please post the results (copy/paste the ENTIRE CONTENTS of the scan results into your reply) for the Malwarebytes' scan and the ESET online scans,
and whether you are still experiencing symptoms or not.

If we don't change the direction we are going,
We are likely to end up where we are headed.

Hello :thumbsup:

Your scan log shows "Vundo", as well as infected "Restore Points".

To ensure that no infected restore points remain on your computer, you will want to TURN OFF SYSTEM RESTORE (which will delete ALL of your Restore Points).

(After you get everything fixed, you can turn System Restore back ON.)

How to turn off and turn on System Restore in Windows XP

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310405

My computer was recently infected with "Vundo".
It required the help of the Malware Response Team to get rid of it, because some parts of the process require the use of specialized tools
(that I am not experienced in).
Those specialized tools MUST be done ONLY under the supervision of the Malware Response Team.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for their knowledge and experience.

I want you to have the best help there is, and answers that are CORRECT.

The safest thing for you to do, is get help from the Malware Response Team, just to be sure.
The Malware Response Team will be able to tell you for certain whether your computer is free of infection,
or if additional malware removal is required.

Read this topic and follow instructions:
Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

Then go here:
Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
and post a New Topic.
  • Include your logs (DDS, GMER) in your new post in that forum.
  • Include a link to THIS TOPIC in your post so the Malware Response Team will know all of what you've done, and be able to see your scan results here.

    After you have posted a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum,
  • Do not make any changes to your computer
  • Only follow the advice of OFFICIAL STAFF MEMBERS of this site.
Official Staff members will have the following designations:
Admin | Site Admin | Global Moderator | Moderator | Malware Response Instructor | Malware Response Team | BC Advisor



Do be patient, because the Malware Response Team has LOTS of people to help, and they WILL get to you.

If you need to add additional information to your new post there, use the "Edit" feature, rather than the "Add Reply" feature, because they'll look for topics that have 0 replies. If a topic shows replies, it will look like somebody is already helping you.

Warm Regards,

Sashacat :flowers:
