After my computer starting running VERY slowly I decided to run a full scan of the system. Before I did so I got rid of the temp files and "cleaned house". My OS is Windows XP Profession (all up to date), I'm running ZoneAlarm free Firewall, AVG Free 9.0, and SuperAntiSpyware. But just to make sure I got anything that slips through the crack, I ran Malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes immediately detected a virus called "ave.exe (Rogue.MultipleAV)" on my computer and any attempts I've made to get rid of it have failed. AVG caught it once. But Malwarebytes catches it every time. But no matter haw many times Malwarebytes finds it, it keeps coming back.

I've followed all the steps in the prep guide but one. I cannot get DDS to run. I have AutoCad on my system and it thinks that the SCR file is a AutoCAD script file and it gets thrown right into Notepad.

I was able to run Defogger, and Gmer, as well as Combofix and Hijack this.

Here's copy of my Malwarebytes log (the virus it found is in bold):

I can also supply a Hijack this log, as well as a combofix log. And if someone can tell me how to run the DDS script, I can supply that as well.

Thanks,

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

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. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE



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.
regards,
schrauber

Thanks for getting back to me. I have fixed the problem using help I got from Malware.org. I was directed to copy and paste a text file into Notepad and rename it to reglist.reg. You then click this and amend it to your registry. After that I was told to download the latest verson of C-Cleaner, and run it. After that I was told to turn system restore off then on again.

Besides all that I was advised to switch my browser to Chrome. I did and I'm pretty satisfied with the move. This all seems to have worked. I have scanned my computer numerous times, with AVG, Malwarebytes, Superantisprware, and Spypbot since I've done this and have found NOTHING. So I'm going to assume all is well.
