hello and thank you for your time. two weeks ago somehow my computer was infected by Antispyware soft. using malwarebytes i managed to get rid of it, but a few days later i started having browser problems. i installed and have been using firefox ever since, but it seems much slower than it should be. on top of which, during that same timeframe i found frequent redirects occurring whenever i tried using Yahoo! or Google's search engines. these redirects tend to send me to arbitrary sites that have nothing to do with my search. i've noticed a strange almost lower-case "a" icon appearing in the upper left corner of the tab when it redirects, if that helps at all. I've tried SuperAntispyware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and even my Avast multiple times. each one got rid of something, but apparently none were what the problem was. on top of which, my wireless receiver seems to have problems registering that there is indeed a wireless signal coming from only two rooms away. another thing i've noticed is that randomly my desktop will return to almost windows 98 style for a few moments. also, i seem to be having problems accessing the Windows Update function. i was initially going to wait until tomorrow to start this topic, but the flicker of bare-bones appearing this morning spurred me into action now. probably a better idea. i believe that's everything wrong. i'm using Windows XP with service pack 3. here's the dds log. attached are the attach and gmer logs.

Hi Xenmaru00,

Welcome to Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal (VTSMR) 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. Please let me know in your next reply if you agree with this.

If the issue is not resolved please update me on the current condition of your computer.

that will not be a problem. thank you for your help. so far the pop-ups have continued. and the redirects as well. funny, the tab even blatantly says in my face "redirect." the speed seems to have picked up, but i've noticed it will go between lightning quick, and super slow. i've not been able to tell if it is because of something unrelated or not. i'm ready and waiting for your instructions.

  1. You have the program Spybot S&D (Teatimer option) running on your machine. We need to disable TeaTimer so it does not interfere with the fixes we are about to do. This will only take a few seconds.
    1. First disable TeaTimer:
      • Run Spybot-S&D
      • Go to the Mode menu, and make sure Advanced Mode is selected
      • On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
      • Uncheck Resident TeaTimer and OK any prompts
      • Restart your computer.
      Instruction is also here: How to disable TeaTimer during HijackThis Cleanup
      Note:If teatimer gives you a warning afterwards that some changes were made, allow this instead of blocking it.
    2. Then download ResetTeaTimer.exe to your desktop.
      • Doubleclick ResetTeaTimer.exe and let it run.
    Note: The Teatimer should be kept disabled until I give you the clean sign.

  2. Please run Notepad (start > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad) and copy and paste the text in the code box (without the word CODE) into a new file:


    CODE
    @ECHO OFF
    Reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyEnable /f
    Reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyServer /f
    proxycfg -d

    • Go to the File menu at the top of the Notepad and select Save as.
    • Select Save in: desktop
    • Fill in File name: fix.bat
    • Save as type: All file types (*.*)
    • Click save.
    • Close the Notepad.
    • Locate fix.bat on the desktop. It should look like this:
    • Double-click to run it.
    • A window flashes, this is normal.

  3. 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:

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

That is how it should go. The rootkit is taken care of. thumbup2.gif
  1. Run TDLfix, type del and press Enter. This will delete the quarantined infected file.

  2. Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system.
    Download JavaRa from Javara for Java update or directly from here.
    Use the tool to remove old and redundant versions of the Java Runtime Environment. The latest version is Java 6 update 20. Please uninstall any version remaining versions if the tool could not uninstall them.

  3. This small application you may want to keep and use to keep the computer clean.
    Download CCleaner from here http://www.ccleaner.com/
    • Run the installer to install the application.
    • When it gives you the option to install Yahoo toolbar uncheck the box next to it.
    • Run CCleaner. (make sure under Windows tab all the boxes of Internet Explorer and Windows explorer are checked. Under System check Empty Recycle Bin and Temporary Files. Under Application tab all the boxes should be checked).
    • Click Run Cleaner.
    • Close CCleaner.

  4. Open your Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
    • First update it, to do that under the Update tab press "Check for Updates".

Connection seems to be a bit faster. i wont be able to tell if i have problems connecting until i restart, but that was a lesser concern. so far, i've done multiple searches, and havent gotten a redirect once. and i did both yahoo and google searches, with multiple checks on different links, repeated checks on the same links, and using different topics to search. not a single redirect. here is the MBAM log you requested. than you for all of your help so far.

It looks good. thumbup2.gif
  1. You may delete any tool or log we used from your computer.

  2. 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.

Recommendations:
  1. I recommend using Site Advisor for safe surfing. It is a free extension both for Internet Explorer and Firefox. When you search a site it gives you an indication of how safe a site is.

  2. I recommend installing this small application for safe surfing: Javacoolsİ SpywareBlaster
    SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer and Firefox settings and that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
    • Download and install it.
    • Update it manually by clicking on Updates in the left pane and then Check for Updates.
    • Then enable all the protections by clicking on Protection Status on the left pane. Then click on Enable All Protection.
    • The free version doesn't have an automatic update. Update it once in two or three weeks and enable all protection again.
