Posted 19 July 2010 - 07:31 PM

When I click on a search result from Google I get redirected and taken to two or three pages quickly before landing on a page I did not intend to. Blueseek seems to show up on my history over and over. This is the case on Chrome and Firefox... On IE i get taken on a continous loop. Also at times when clicking on Chrome, notepad or other programs, they will not run at all.

As per the "Preparation guide", I am including a copy of my DDS log and attaching the Attach.txt file, however, I am unable to include the GMER logs. Everytime I ran GMER I would get the Blue Screen of Death.

Your help WILL be very appreciated. smile.gif

There's some malware files in DDS and Gmer isn't running so we are probably looing at a rootkit


Please run Combofix

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop making sure you rename it comfix.exe
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • Double click on Comfix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.



Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:



Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Hey m0le. Just ran Combofix in safe mode as Administrator. I am including the combofix.txt as an attachment. Let me know if you'd prefer it in a "copy-n-paste" form instead.

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

3. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the box below into it:

QUOTE
File::
c:\windows\system32\drivers\xlngultj.sys
c:\windows\Ozinuj.bin
c:\windows\Pnidih.dat

Folder::
c:\documents and settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\pchjftjg
c:\documents and settings\ME\Local Settings\Application Data\yavlmvrnn

Driver::
jmvld


Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as Comfix.exe (called ComboFix.exe in the below graphic)




Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

When finished, it shall produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt which I will require in your next reply.

m0le, my pc seems to be all right... No more redirects, no more crazy stuff.... I am definitely sending you a little sumthing on paypal and a virtual pint :-)

One more thing, I currently use AVG Free. Is there anything you recommend using instead?

Thanks. I do like a nice virtual pint smile.gif

AVG free is now not recommended since they pulled its support.

For free antiviruses I recommend either Avast or Antivir - both links are found at the bottom of this post. We can clear up then...

You're clean. Good stuff! thumbup2.gif

Let's do some clearing up

Uninstall ComboFix

Remove Combofix now that we're done with it.
  • Please press the Windows Key and R on your keyboard. This will bring up the Run... command.
    (For Vista/Windows 7 please click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Run)
  • Now type in Combofix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. (Notice the space between "Combofix" and "/")
  • Please follow the prompts to uninstall Combofix.
  • You will then receive a message saying Combofix was uninstalled successfully once it's done uninstalling itself.
This will uninstall Combofix and anything associated with it.


Download and Run OTC

We will now remove the tools we used during this fix using OTC.
  • Download OTC by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click icon to start the program. If you are using Vista, please right-click and choose run as administrator
  • Then Click the big button.
  • You will get a prompt saying "Being Cleanup Process". Please select Yes.
  • Restart your computer when prompted.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's some advice on how you can keep your PC clean


Use and update your AntiVirus Software

You must have a good antivirus. There are plenty to choose from but I personally recommend the free options of Avast and Avira Antivir. If you want to purchase a security program then I recommend any of the following: AVG, Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky and ESET Nod32.

It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out. If you use a commercial antivirus program you must make sure you keep renewing your subscription. Otherwise, once your subscription runs out, you may not be able to update the programs virus definitions.


Make sure your applications have all of their updates

It is also possible for other programs on your computer to have security vulnerability that can allow malware to infect you. Therefore, it is also a good idea to check for the latest versions of commonly installed applications that are regularly patched to fix vulnerabilities. You can check these by visiting Secunia Software Inspector and Calendar of Updates.


Install an AntiSpyware Program

A highly recommended AntiSpyware program is SuperAntiSpyware. You can download the free Home Version. or the Pro version for a 15 day trial period.

Installing this or another recommended program will provide spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should scan your computer with an AntiSpyware program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.


Finally, here's a treasure trove of antivirus, antimalware and antispyware resources


That's it riken, happy surfing!

Cheers.
