It's pretty early in the morning, I'll admit. But I was downloading a game, when all of a sudden my lowly AVG program picked up trojans coming in all at once. Trojan installers were unleashing hell, as there were a lot of rogue spyware programs, fake virus protection programs, and internet redirection all around. Popups of purchasing programs came up as well, and all of this at once scared me. Out of habit, I scanned with Malwarebytes, SUPER Antispyware, Avg, and now newly, Avast. I found some, but didn't get rid of them all. There was also something quite funky going on with my right click. A couple of options were added on, "start" (Yes, with all lower-case letters), and "Scan with Win 7 Defender" (One of the rogue spyware/malware apps).

Afterwards, I system-restored out of panic. Obviously didn't work, as my AVG Resident shield alert now picked up another dozen Trojans. All of them that are "SHeur3.POF or .PLW" or "Crypt.SCF", and even "Cryptic.DZ"s. Sad part is, the locations of the trojans are located on the programs that are currently scanning my system (Malwarebytes, Avast, SUPER Antispyware). However, the options with my right click appeared to have changed back to normal.

So in conclusion, my system is not safe to be accessing passwords and all. I'm actually a little scared that I used my primary email address to sign up for this website.. But, I hope you guys can help me out soon.

EDIT: I've done multiple full scanning sessions with MBAM, and it picked up some trojans along the way. SUPER Antispyware didn't pick anything up. Reboots of the computer were also taken place in this process. AVG isn't telling me MBAM and the other programs are infected anymore, but I'm not sure if I should be relaxed or worried at this point. Maybe trojans have spread to AVG?
It doesn't seem like there's anything wrong with my system now, but I will never know for sure as long as I sit here wondering the possibilities. I'd like to hopefully sterilize my computer of these viruses.

Thanks once again for reading.

Maybe I should reword this..

Is there any way I can make sure I'm safe, before taking a breather? I'm a little too paranoid to be logging onto my games and risking my email passwords. Or do my programs qualify for my safe well being? Sorry for being a pain, I'm just stuck at what to do at this point.

Hello,we should check for rootkits.

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.

    Posted Image
  • 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 be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in safe mode.
-- If GMER crashes or keeps resulting in a BSODs, uncheck Devices on the right side before scanning
.


And do an online scan from Internet Explorer.
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

GMER produced that log (nothing)??

Looks pretty good how is it running now?
Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Ok, that's cool...

Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been backed up, renamed and saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.


Vista and Windows 7 users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point in Vista or Windows 7 and Disk Cleanup in Vista.
