Posted 23 April 2010 - 10:06 AM

Greetings, great folks. I would like help with a virus infection. This is a small Acer Aspire Win Xp machine.

Twice my firewall has become disabled in the background, but I restored firewall functionality with the xp system restore. Google searches are all hijacked. If scrolling via mouse my cursor shows a swirly figure- google toolbar? Usually the task bar won't come up, and if I shut down the computer, programs are seen to have been running in the background. Edit: Forgot to mention, Firefox does not come up for me when dbl-clicked.

I've changed all outside passwords from another machine (except the one for these forums, wll do that next). This computer doesn't have any data on it that I need to keep, but also it didn't come with any os disks, was very cheap.

All help is greatly, greatly appreciated. Flames welcome too. Thanks.

-Ann

Please follow the instruction on how to disable McAfee so it will not interfere while we run ComboFix.
After doing all the steps, please re enable it again so you will stay protected while waiting for my response, I will advice you to disable it again if needed. Thanks.

  • Click Configure
  • Make sure the following are disabled by ticking the "Off" button.
    Virus protection
    Spyware protection
    System Guards Protection
    Script Scanning Protection (you may have to scroll down to see it)
  • Next, select never for "When to re-enable real time scanning"
  • and click OK.

Further info on disabling and re-enabling McAfee: http://help.aol.com/help/microsites/micros...ternalID=222820



2. Download Combofix (by Subs) from any of the links below, make sure that you save it to your desktop.

  • It's important to temporary disable your anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. See HERE
  • Close any open windows, including this one.

Thank you, thank you, sempai!

ComboFix log included below.

Sorry, my Mcaffee security center wasn't working, because I had deleted it before and used a McAffee removal tool, and a subsequent XP restore had brought McAffee back but without the security center. I removed McAffee via Control Panel Add/Remove and installed Avast. I then disabled avast before running ComboFix.

XP Auto updates ran itself and installed something during combofix's run, hope that works out ok. It wants to restart my computer, I'll let it do that now. Thought I should save and post this log to you first.

Thanks again for the attention!

Hi,

1. Download TFC (Temp File Cleaner) to your desktop.
  • Close any other windows.
  • Double click the TFC icon to run the program.
  • It will close all programs itself when run, make sure to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. The program should not take long to finish its job
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine, if not, do this yourself to ensure a complete clean.
Note: TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.



2. Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.
  1. Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  2. It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  3. When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  4. Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Archives
  5. Click on My Computer under Scan.
  6. Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  7. You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  8. Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  9. Please post this log in your next reply .
Note: Kaspersky online scan may take time to complete, please be patient.



3. Please run another DDS scan. Post the log it created for my review. Thanks.

Tons of thanks, Sempai!

I have run the temp file cleaner, Kaspersky and DDS- logs down below and the larger dds log attached.

The temp file cleaner ran with no glitch.

Kaspersky needed a newer version of Java than I had. I reinstalled Firefox thinking it might be included, but no, so I then installed java from Sun. Kaspersky's certificate was reported to be the right domain but expired yesterday, hope that's ok. I accepted it. Also, there was a java error - dimly remembered, sorry- early on saying that java had failed installing something, but the program seemed to install its database and scan fine, hope it's ok.

DDS had no complaints.

Kaspersky log - no threats found! Yay!

Hi,

Please tell me how's the computer running after doing the instructions below, thanks. smile.gif

++++++++++++++++


1. We need to execute a ComboFix script. (Tutorials on how to disable your anti virus and anti malware programs can be found HERE.)
1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

3. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the code box below into it:

CODE
DDS::
BHO: {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - No File

DirLook::
C:\6b4cf5a7edcd8bea066649a7


4. Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe




5. Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

6. When finished, it shall produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt which I will require in your next reply.



2. Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
MalwareBytes' AntiMalware download link

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

The computer seems to be working great!! thumbup.gif

Google doesn't take me to advertising sites anymore, the computer doesn't seem to have anything extra running in the background, and as an added bonus the speed is improved! Thanks!

I disabled Avast (the instructions were a little different, but it was easy to find the disable with rt-click on the tray icon, and choosing the shields control submenu), ran the combofix script, and ran mbam. mbam didn't find any problems. smile.gif

Here are combofix, and then mbam logs:

Your Log is Clean, please take the time to read below to secure your machine and take the necessary steps to keep it Clean smile.gif
How to prevent Malware: by miekiemoes
How to increase PC speed: by miekiemoes

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently
It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Make sure your applications have all of their updates
It is also possible for other programs on your computer to have security vulnerability that can allow malware to infect you. Therefore, it is also a good idea to check for the latest versions of commonly installed applications that are regularly patched to fix vulnerabilities. You can check these by visiting Secunia Software Inspector and Calendar of Updates.

Install SpywareBlaster
SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware


Practice Safe Internet
One of the main reasons people get infected in the first place is that they are not practicing Safe Internet. You practice Safe Internet when you educate yourself on how to properly use the Internet through the use of security tools and good practice. Knowing how you can get infected and what types of files and sites to avoid will be the most crucial step in keeping your computer malware free. The reality is that the majority of people who are infected with malware are ones who click on things they shouldn't be clicking on. Whether these things are files or sites it doesn't really matter. If something is out to get you, and you click on it, it most likely will. Below are a list of simple precautions to take to keep your computer clean and running securely:
  1. If you receive an attachment from someone you do not know, DO NOT OPEN IT! Simple as that. Opening attachments from people you do not know is a very common method for viruses or worms to infect your computer.
  2. If you receive an attachment and it ends with a .exe, .com, .bat, or .pif do not open the attachment unless you know for a fact that it is clean. For the casual computer user, you will almost never receive a valid attachment of this type.
  3. If you receive an attachment from someone you know, and it looks suspicious, then it probably is. The email could be from someone you know infected with a malware that is trying to infect everyone in their address book.
  4. If you are browsing the Internet and a popup appears saying that you are infected, ignore it!. These are, as far as I am concerned, scams that are being used to scare you into purchasing a piece of software. For an example of these types of popups, or Foistware, you should read this article: Foistware, And how to avoid it.
    There are also programs that disguise themselves as Anti-Spyware or security products but are instead scams. For a list of these types of programs we recommend you visit this link: Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites
  5. Another tactic to fool you on the web is when a site displays a popup that looks like a normal Windows message or alert. When you click on them, though, they instead bring you to another site that is trying to push a product on you. We suggest that you close these windows by clicking on the X instead of the OK button. Alternatively, you can check to see if it's a real alert by right-clicking on the window. If there is a menu that comes up saying Add to Favorites... you know it's a fake.
  6. Do not go to adult sites. I know this may bother some of you, but the fact is that a large amount of malware is pushed through these types of sites. I am not saying all adult sites do this, but a lot do.
  7. When using an Instant Messaging program be cautious about clicking on links people send to you. It is not uncommon for infections to send a message to everyone in the infected person's contact list that contains a link to an infection. Instead when you receive a message that contains a link, message back to the person asking if it is legit before you click on it.
  8. Stay away from Warez and Crack sites! In addition to the obvious copyright issues, the downloads from these sites are typically overrun with infections.
  9. Be careful of what you download off of web sites and Peer-2-Peer networks. Some sites disguise malware as legitimate software to trick you into installing them and Peer-2-Peer networks are crawling with it. If you want to download a piece of software a from a site, and are not sure if they are legitimate, you can use McAfee Siteadvisor to look up info on the site.
  10. DO NOT INSTALL any software without first reading the End User License Agreement, otherwise known as the EULA. A tactic that some developers use is to offer their software for free, but have spyware and other programs you do not want bundled with it. This is where they make their money. By reading the agreement there is a good chance you can spot this and not install the software.



Thanks,

Thanks tons again, Semp! Very much appreciated.

I am pleased to keep mbam and tfc, they seem awfully useful.

I will indeed read through the rest of your instructions, carefully, and slowly. They will be very useful, thanks.
