I'm back again. It's been 5 days and I'm still waiting for some help with malware on my Windows Server 2003. I've tried running DDS but it is not supported on Server 2003. I tried GMER and it freezes up my server during the scan. I did a system restore using my backup Ghost image from 3 months ago which should've fixed the issue but whatever I have is still there. Nothing shows up in HijackThis that is out of the ordinary but I know it's lingering. I will need some software that is compatible with Server 2003. I haven't tried GMER in safe mode so I think I'll just wait for someone to help me. Is anyone out there? One last thing. I also tried the Trend Micro Housecall on-line scanner and and cleaned up some rootkits but I don't know if it really deleted it. If my computer freezes up using GMER there must be an issue.



Here is my previous post:

I got infected with malware. I was trying to install the DDS program but it is not supported on Windows Server 2003. I'm not sure about the other such as GMER but if someone can point me in the right direction for my OS I'd appreciate it. What do I do? I ran Spybot and deleted the malware it found. ASAM was one of them. I also ran MBAM and deleted the rootkit it found. I can't update Spybot. Internet Explorer was disabled but was able to get it working. This malware checked the Proxy Server setting so once I unchecked that it worked. Will GMER work on Server 2003? I could really use some help. I have a home domain setup so everyone gets their IP from my server so you can see another issue here.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hello can you run OTL ?? If so then create a new topic here and post the OTL log with a description of your issue.
here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.

Let me know if that went well.


  • 1. Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • This is THE Mirror
    2. Save it to your desktop.
    3. Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
    4. Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s

    5. Push the Quick Scan button.
    6. Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
  • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
  • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I was able to post the OTL in the VIrus, Trojan, Removal Topic that you said to. I'll work it from there. The topic is "Malware on Server 2003"

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/319526/malware-on-server-2003/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
