For a good couple of weeks now, Norton's has given me a slew of pop-ups that indicate "A recent intrusion attempt on your computer has been blocked," or "A recent attack attempt on your computer has been blocked." I've attempted to trace the IP addresses of the attackers, but they seem to be coming from everywhere, and seemingly random locations I've never heard of. The only real clue I have is that some of them have tried to get in through Firefox, but not all of them.

Hi Time Lord,

Welcome to this forum. I am going to assist you with your problem.

Please refrain from making any changes to your system (scanning or running other tools, updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might interfere with our fixes.

Download http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/TDLfix.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable real-time protection of your security software and make sure it will not run at startup after reboot. They may otherwise interfere with the tool. (Information on A/V control HERE)
  • Close all the open windows.
  • Double-click TDLfix.exe to run the tool, a command window opens.
  • Type (or copy the following and right-click to paste) in the command window and press Enter:

    cdrom
  • The application shall restart the computer immediately and runs after restart.
  • Tell me if the computer rebooted and ran to completion.

Hello:

First off, thanks a ton for helping me with this, especially on a volunteer basis.

I did exactly as you asked: downloaded the app to the desktop, disabled my protection, ran the app, let it reboot... I got a window that opened long enough to say it was closing, then it closed. Other than that, the computer booted up normally. I even think Firefox is running a little more smoothly.

So, is that it? Should I delete the app and re-enable Norton's now? Assuming this did it (time will tell, I guess), can you tell me what was wrong, and how I might have gotten it?

Thanks again!

It was a TDL/TDSS rootkit infection. A wrong download, visiting a bad site, opening an infected e-mail with a bad ttachment, etc. all could be the reason. Some antivirus programs can detect it but all of them can not remove it unless you use a special tool. Kaspersky has also a special too for this kind of infection.

It looks good. thumbup2.gif

First Set a New Restore Point then Remove the Old Restore Points to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. 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.

To set a new restore point:
  • 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 Restore Point 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.

To remove the old restore points:
  • Go to Start > Run then type: Cleanmgr in the box and click "OK".
  • You get a window to select the drive to clean, the default is already set to (C:) drive. Click OK.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
  • Click OK and Yes.


Happy Surfing Time Lord. smile.gif
