I know this forum states to not run Combofix until told - however I use combofix to remove virus for my clients and am aware of the consequenses. It just seems to be a quick fix for most simple viruses - I don't need someone to tell me the ins and outs of why I shouldn't - I just help on this one virus. I ran combofix and the log is attached. This client of mine has had repetative viruses, while my other client hardly call me on virus issues anymore. The first time I worked on his system it was infected with a very nasty rootkit that took complete control over his computer. We desided to format since he didn't have much data anyway. For awhile he had no issues - a simple SysGuard virus was found on his system a couple of months ago that I removed. Now he has another virus that seems to be a rootkit again.

We originally had him using AVG Free for awhile. I showed him the linkscanner feature and showed him how to avoid harmful websites. However since this issue, I desided to run combofix which seemed to resolve the issue. I removed AVG and then installed ESET 32NOD which I here is pretty good. After combofix and this software being installed, it found 6 trogan infections which is quarentined. After this, it kept notifying me of a blocked connection every time I searched something on Google, the adresses were:

I noticed a specific script you guys use after a the first combofix is ran. If you can, please help me at this point to fix his system. I have remote access and will be awaiting an answer soon. Thanks!

This is strange beause I already removed this before - I removed AVG and AdAware and installed ESET NOD32. It was picking up on some viruses and continual threats from these IPs:

However when I called my client today to remote in - he said the icon for the software was missing. I tried working with him to find the program file but it too was missing. I got him to get his IP and I remoted in using windows RDP. I noticed ESET NOD32 wasn't installed anymore - but strangly AVG and AdAware was. It looks like the client ran a restore point without my consent - but I'm not sure. I'd have to ask. These attachements are the current state of the machine. Please help ASAP. Thanks!

Thanks for merging the two - I started the new one because my client ran System Restore without notifying me and it caused it to go back to the original state. I'm going to install ESET and run a scan, after the scan I'll repost the attachements. Please get back to me ASAP on this - this is time sensitive - I know you guys are busy. I'd do it myself but there is no public database with the info you guys know - I assume because of security reasons. Please get to this soon. Thanks!

I found a similar issue from this post:


I ran TDLfix.exe on perc2hib.sys - this resolved the IE issue with the software trying to connect.

I ran TDLFix.exe mbr - here are the results:

Stealth MBR rootkit/Mebroot/Sinowal detector 0.3.7 by Gmer, http://www.gmer.net

device: opened successfully
user: MBR read successfully
called modules: ntoskrnl.exe CLASSPNP.SYS disk.sys ACPI.sys hal.dll atapi.sys PCIIDE.SYS PCIIDEX.SYS
kernel: MBR read successfully
user & kernel MBR OK

- I will run TDLFix del, and run Comboxfix /Uninstall

I hope all malware has been removed - but please check over the attached files.

Should I run TDLFix.exe on atapi.sys? It was found as a suspicious file on my first run of GMER - it didn't show on the next run. I'll attach that file as soon as it is finished. Please try to get to this post soon. Thank!

- Steve

This is resolved as far as I am concerned - if I have further issues I will post again. You guys take way to long to get to post - but I assume you do this on your own time for free... so yeah.... Thanks anyway,

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
