Hello there, now and then reader first time poster. My Aunt recently complained that her laptop was "making funny noises" when she was trying to type and I responded that it was probably a virus or she dumped some liquid on the keyboard. Being reassured that there was never any water near the computer I asked to take a look at it. I found in her AVG virus database "Vundo.KE" in multiple entries along with some other titles like "generic torjan" and such. I'm not all that great with computer software or trying to repair them so I trun to you all here.

First off, the beeping only occurs when I use the keyboard on the laptop itself. I can type just fine using this logitec wireless keyboard/mouse combo. Second issue, I have attempted to run the GMER scan several times and have had the same results. That is a blue screen and a restart stating driver failure. I don't know how to set the computer to display the blue screen longer so I can nab the information.

I guess from here I will provide you with what I've managed to get so far and wait for some assistance on getting a GMER log for you all.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. My name is m0le and I will be helping you with your log.
  • Please subscribe to this topic, if you haven't already. You can subscribe by clicking the Options box to the right of your topic title and selecting Track This Topic.

  • Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible.

  • Please reply to this post so I know you are there.
The forum is busy and we need to have replies as soon as possible. If I haven't had a reply after 3 days I will bump the topic and if you do not reply by the following day after that then I will close the topic.


Please run Gmer, a rootkit scanner

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)
  • Zipped 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.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.

I'm here and currently fighting with GMER still. I'm unable to run the computer in safe mode thanks to w/e software her company put on the laptop. Clearly she doesn't have full administrative rights over this laptop. Thanks to that I have been trying to get the scan to complete and save... w/o any success which is highly aggravating to me. I have been able to get the scan to complete a few times but once I click on either save or copy it just freezes the computer. I have been trying this for well over 3 hours tonight and about another 2 or so the night before, when I realized I got a response.

At least it isn't going through the blue screen phase anymore and it seems to be running the scan faster. I have noticed another symptom, the beeping of the computer stems from what seems to be "stuck" keys. It's as if someone rested their hands on a key and it continues to count the stroke indefinitely (until I press a few keys on the laptop, which seems to open it up again for use). The keystrokes it registers are also not limited to a single key. I opened up word to see what keys were in use and it was everything from punctuation to numbers. It also seems to use the ctrl and alt buttons as it would open other features in word when I tested this.

Here's hoping I can get the scan to at least copy over and thanks for the welcome and in advance for the help. Though I wish I knew more about this stuff, still a greenhorn on these Trojan matters.

Seems I spoke too soon about the blue screen issues.

/sigh off to try again.

After some 20+ attempts I finally managed to get it to copy over to the forums. I'm unable to save a hard copy of it as it just freezes the computer with every attempt. The symptoms are getting worse by the day, even after last night it took me around 4 or 5 restarts this morning just to get it up and going again. It was running everything from blue screens to just shutting down again (perhaps a mess up in the post?). I couldn't get it to boot from anything but "last known good configuration" under the F8 menu and even then it was hit or miss. Safe Mode wouldn't start (not that I can do anything in it anyway) and a normal boot wouldn't start it.

  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Keyboard still doesn't work properly. It seems like tab in combination with ctrl or alt is almost always in use as it opens all sorts of things itself and random characters always appear after a single keystroke. Otherwise, restarts are not so bad... if you can handle all the happy beeps from tab being used (no more blue screens so far). Can't thank you enough for the help so far! One small step in the right direction after almost a solid week of yelling at it (like it's going to do me or the computer any good).

Some of these symptoms are leaning towards a hardware issue with the keyboard. It could be a software problem also.

Do you have a spare keyboard you can use to test?

If so, please uninstall any keyboard software and unplug your keyboard. Install the new one (or plug it in) and let me know if the problems are the same.

If not, it may be an idea to get hold of one just to check this.

There are, of course, TDSS rootkit traces on the PC which MBAM found so we should see what else may be left behind.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  1. Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  2. Click the button.
  3. For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    1. Click on to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    2. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Check
  5. Click the button.
  6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  7. Check
  8. Push the Start button.
  9. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  10. When the scan completes, push
  11. Push , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  12. Push the button.
  13. Push

No threats found...

I guess at this point I can try looking up some drivers for the laptop keyboard, is there a chance any of those could have been damanged? If not, I'm guessing someone got the keyboard wet and that's the reason it's acting this way. Good ol' fashon electrical shorts on the circuitboard!~

In answer to the extra keyboards, I have two sets of Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combos I can test out on this laptop if needed. Only thing I'm not sure of is how to stop the use of the laptop keyboard. What I can say is that using this wireless that I'm using now doesn't recreate the problems that I get when trying to use the laptop keyboard. I'm not motivated enough to take this thing apart to see if there is a short on the keyboard so if I end up exahusting ideas here I will be returning it to her (at least in virus free condition).

Again, I can't thank you enough for the help you have provided here. This thing went from 1 step away from the edge of oblivion (at least in my eyes) back to a nearly normal working machine again.

Many thanks mOle. smile.gif
