Hello. I got infected with a few things I can't seem to remove with malwarebytes, SAS, AVG, etc.

Multiple iexplore.exe processes run in the background when IE isn't running, complete with background clicking and audio ads. It keeps respawning when I kill it. There are some other suspicious processes in the Task Manager too(ex:wscntfy.exe).

AVG detected Win32/Patched.DX in disk.sys in C:/windows/system32/drivers but hasn't been able to remove it. Something just corrupted AVG's installation too. I think one of these has downloaded other stuff.

I can't boot into Safe Mode to fix anything either, as it hangs up during the boot. I'm not sure if this is malware-related as it's been like this for awhile. Normal boot seems to work fine for now though.

I would appreciate any assistance in removing these infections. Thanks. Here is the DDS and GMer logs.

Please download MBRCheck.exe by a_d_13 from here and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click the file to begin the scan.
  • A Command Window will open and after the scan has completed you will be prompted to enter Y or N.
  • Enter n and then when prompted press <ENTER> to exit.
  • A text file called MBRCheck_date/time.txt can be found on the Desktop. I'd like you to post the contents in your next reply.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

OK, the situation you find yourself in is as follows - Your hard drive has an area on it that is known as the Master Boot Record. The nasty that you have picked up has altered the MBR and ideally we would undo the changes to solve the problem.
Unfortunately it isn't quite as easy as typing this and the only option we have available is to replace your MBR with a standard one, which may not be the end of your problems. Different computer manufactures can have different Master Boot Records and overwriting the MBR with a standard one may result in the PC becoming unbootable.
While this won't actually physically break anything and you can reinstall the Operating System from a disc, if you have one, the existing installation of Windows will be unusable.
On the plus side, i've not had one PC become unbootable while carrying out this fix; on the negative side, that is based on a grand total of two machines.

Sadly I can't say whether the fix will behave itself on your PC or not, so you'll have to decide what you want to do and let me know.

If you do choose to go ahead, please let me have the make and model of your PC and i'll check into the possibility of a non-standard MBR before we proceed. Please understand however that there will be no guarantees either way with this, i'm afraid.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Well, I can't exactly leave it on there. I have the Windows XP re-installation disc/recovery console. Doesn't that have an MBR repair option on it, or do I need to do something else?

Will this fix do anything to my non-system files, or is my data safe?

My PC is a Dell Dimension DM051.

Download Preformat.zip from here and save it to your Desktop. You will need to extract the file.

Right click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
In the 'Extraction Wizard' window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
In the final window, click on Finish

You should now see a folder with a .vbs file in it. Double click Preformat.vbs to run it and a text file called Preformat.txt should be created in the same folder - either that or you'll get an error message.
Please copy and paste the contents of the text file into your next reply and then you can delete both of the folders and their contents.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Not good news i'm afraid, as your Dell uses a customised MBR. From what I understand of Dell PCs, the Dell System Restore utility is accessed via the MBR. Writing a standard Windows MBR to the hard drive won't affect the physical state of the drive, so all the partitions and data, including your personal files, will still exist, but it will remove your ability to initiate a Factory Restore.
While this isn't a total disaster given you have a recovery disc, I am uncertain as to whether a standard Windows MBR will enable your PC to boot at all.

If the MBR repairs successfully you will have a PC that works as before but doesn't have a Factory Restore capability any more. Any Windows failure will require you to then reinstall from a disk, which will also mean that you have to install the drivers that Dell should have supplied on a disk with the PC, or you can download them from the Dell site. That isn't a big job, but it does take longer than a Factory Restore.

If Windows fails to start when you reboot the PC, you have a serious problem. The only guaranteed solution open to you at this point would be to reinstall Windows, which would overwrite your existing installation and that would leave any personal files as good as gone. A data recovery company may be able to rescue some of them, but I don't know how expensive that would be.

Data could be recovered using a boot disk, Puppy Linux for example, before reinstalling Windows, but it would be wiser to back up anything important before taking any risks.


While I am happy to guide you through the MBR repair, as I am quite interested in how things will turn out, I suggest that you think twice about satisfying my curiosity. If this was my PC I would contact Dell and see if they had a method of writing a Dell MBR to the disk that would solve your malware problem and leave your PC working how it was before.

Please think carefully about your options and if anything is unclear, ask.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
