Hello there,
I have been getting my google results redirected randomly to ad websites, as well as random ad popups appearing. I did have Daemon-Tools installed a few days ago, but uninstalled it at the guidance of a friend. He also told me to install SUPERAntiSpyware, but that has produced almost no results. Avira, MBAM, and Spybot also produce no results. Thanks.

Hello dejario,
  • Welcome to Bleeping Computer.
  • My name is fireman4it and I will be helping you with your Malware problem.

    Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean".
  • Finally, please reply using the button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply, unless they do not fit into the post.

1.
One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

We need to disable Spybot S&D's "TeaTimer"
TeaTimer works by preventing ANY changes to the system. It will attempt to undo any fixes we run, because it blocks these fixes from running.

  2. If prompted with a legal dialog, accept the warning.

I believe I will just reformat this harddrive if there is a backdoor trojan. I usually have a USB Flash Drive and an IPOD connected to this laptop, should I be concerned if they are infected at all?
Edit: Also, would there be any risk in copying files off of the harddrive before the reformat? I have many music projects that I would hate to lose on this harddrive.

Hello,

Yes it is very possible your flashdrive could be infected. I would not transfer any music file as they could be hiding a virus or trojan.


You can back up all your important documents, personal data files, photos to a CD or DVD drive, not a flash drive or external hard drive as they may become compromised in the process. The safest practice is not to backup any executable files (*.exe), screensavers (*.scr), autorun (.ini) or script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml ) files because they may be infected by malware. Avoid backing up compressed files (.zip, .cab, .rar) that have executables inside them as some types of malware can penetrate compressed files and infect the .exe files within them. Other types of malware may even disguise itself by hiding a file extension or adding to the existing extension as shown here so be sure you look closely at the full file name. If you cannot see the file extension, you may need to reconfigure Windows to show file name extensions . Then make sure you scan the backed up data with your anti-virus prior to to copying it back to your hard drive.

If your CD/DVD drive is unusable, another word of caution if you are considering backing up to an external usb hard drive as your only alternative. External drives are more susceptible to infection and can become compromised in the process of backing up data. I'm not saying you should not try using such devices but I want to make you aware of all your options and associated risks so you can make an informed decision if its worth that risk.

Note:
Again, do not back up any data with the following file extensions: exe, .scr, .ini, .htm, .html, .php, .asp, .xml, .zip, .rar, .cab as they may be infected.

Alright, thanks. Just to clarify though, seeing as scanning with my antivirus seemed to fail to detect anything on my harddrive, whats to say that I would be able to detect anything on my ipod/flash drive if they are indeed infected? Or is it that the infection on my harddrive operates in a different way to avoid detection? In anycase, thanks for the help.

Hello,
The backdoor trojan on effects the main computer. However it downloads other malware and that could infect your flash drive and files.
