Hello,

I was alerted by my Norton internet security earlier in the day of two things that were blocked. It said that wraxcnsemo.tmp contained threat Trojan.Adclicker and mowrnsxaec.tmp contained threat Trojan.Gen. A minute after this I was alerted to two items that were quarantined by Norton. Suspicious behaviour detected in oarxnswcme.tmp and suspicious behaviour detected in wosmcarnex.tmp. Both detected by Sonar. Right after this is when I received the first intrusion attempt alerts from Norton. These intrusion attempts have been happening every 10 minutes or so ever since. They say that the risk name of them is either HTTPS TidServ or HTTPS Tidserv Request 2. I did a Norton Full System scan and nothing came back negative. I am not a tech savvy person and donít know anything about computers. I would like to know how to stop these attempts from happening, whatís wrong with my computer and how can I fix it? I have tried to look up some information on the risk names and found out that TidServ is a rootkit. I donít really know what that is but I donít think itís good. It said on one site that if youíre dealing with a rootkit you should go to Bleeping Computer for assistance, so here I am. I use Internet Explorer and have Windows XP. I haven't noticed anything different with my computer other than the intrusion attempt alerts.

Thanks

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
