Hey BC! Long time no see!

I have been experiencing a problem and have been unable to correct it myself. (Have MBAM, SuperAntiSpyware, etc)

First here's a little about my system:

AMD Sempron 1.8G processor / 2Gb Memory

Windows XP Home SP3

(need to know more? LET ME KNOW!)

PROBLEM:

Last night I started getting these popups from Norton Internet Security 2010 entitled "Email Error"(KEEP IN MIND I DO NOT USE ANY TYPES OF EMAIL CLIENTS! So I am sure this is spyware), I cannot press "X" to close only "Okay" and another instantly pops up after! Each pop up has different details (Often just numbers & letters) and than shows "From" "To" and "Subject" The From and To email addys are always different and very unfamiliar to me. The Subject line is usually what I would call "spammy" (example of some of the "Subject"s I saw lately are: "Surprise everyone with your new increased length" "Grow That Extra Inch" "Lovemaking need not be hard" "Politics is a game for weaklings" "Make the wisest decision now"

Seems to me like my PC is trying to send out thousands of spam emails from an imaginary source. ??

Here is a screenshot of one of the errors.

Anyones help would be appreciated, thank you in advance. Also, if the above linked picture needs to be re uploaded to RapidShare let me know!

I don't see any error data...just a screenshot that could be interpreted as spam.

If you don't use an email client...how can you read emails?

I use online GMAIL. Do not use Outlook, or anything.

So these Norton Internet Security pop ups are normal?

each of the below errors have different error info, if ANY at all.

My apologies...I forgot that some persons upload their graphics to other websites.

You don't have to do that, just attach the graphic to your post. Reduces time and possible errors like mine :thumbsup:. If you get a message about a size limitation, just shrink the graphic in size by using an graphs editor or any number of other programs that do so.

Not a problem ;) I indeed got size limitation errors when trying to post pics to the topic. Will try to shrink pics somehow in future.

So do you know why I am receiving these popups from NIS? It doesn't seem normal, one directly after another over and over again, and even more suspicious is that they are all relating to "inappropriate" subject matter.

Thank you

ChrisMN

OK, I uploaded a .bmp file above, with no problems. When I tried to download your other links, I was greeted with a message that I could do one free download only. Another reason to use the attachment function for posts, after shrinking the graphic (if necessary).

I changed the .bmp file to a .jpg, for the convenience of readers.

I haven't used any version of NIS since 2005...and I cannot answer questions about it and why you are getting such error messages as depicted. I never saw such messages during the time I used either NAV or NIS (5 years).

If you believe that the errors truly originate with NIS...I would have to assume that your system is somehow infected. On that note, I will move this thread to the Am I Infected forum for better advice/suggestions.

great, thanks. I tried doing that, but don't know how to resize down to 4kb like it says is the max for uploading into a post. The smallest I could get the photo was about 10kb. Down from 38kb. However the maximum upload size stated is about 4kb. Way small! But anyways - thanks.

EDIT: In the other forum this was in before it was transferred here is where there was a 4kb max. (correction)

Inserting An Image Within A Post

Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.
Before you save it rename it to say zztoy.exe


alternate download link 1
alternate 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.
  • 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.

This was a good scan. I want to run some more, a Safe mode and an online scan.


Next run ATF and SAS: If you cannot access Safe Mode,run in normal ,but let me know.

Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining
.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

Click the Empty Selected button.
If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program
.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.

I had the same problem. Stupid viagra or sex site spam being sent and norton was trying to block it. Same ISP name as my e-mail but not my e-mail adress.


Here is how I fixed this on my computer.

It seems that in my case the problem embedded itself in my browser add-ons, plug-ins, components, etc. first I went into the primary folder in which my browser was located(For me Mozilla Firefox. If you have IE you may have to look in different folders). I went into mozilla's plug ins folder and found 2 files. One served no purpose the other came with firefox. Npnul32.dll and Np something DLL, I don't remember the other one.(I beleive the one that I can't remember was the host file). To be safe I deleted both of them.

After that the pop ups continued but they weren't instant anymore. They took an extra few seconds to pop up than they did before I deleted the files in my plug ins file. Then I made sure I had another browser that worked for back up(If not make sure you have a way to re-install a browser or you could be screwed). I went to add/remove programs and removed Mozilla Firefox. Then I went into program files and deleted the actual file "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox". So there was no file/folders to hide in. I rebooted. No email error pop ups. I downloaded and re-installed fire fox, no pop-ups. In my case this worked for me. hopefully it works for anyone else with this problem.

Despite running ATF prior to SAS, SAS still encountered 104 cookies. However, that was it, no other infections were detected.

Below are the results of the SAS scan. ESET finished with no detections, & no log file. Clean.

Looks good to me Chris. you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. 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.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • 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 R.P. 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.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:Avoid gaming sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications. Read P2P Software User Advisories and Risks of File-Sharing Technology.

Keeping Autorun enabled on USB and other removable drives has become a significant security risk due to the increasing number of malware variants that can infect them and transfer the infection to your computer. To learn more about this risk, please read:
