Posted 08 September 2010 - 06:56 PM

I'm getting a bunch of domains that are trying to connect to my computer. Webroot Spy Sweeper stops them from connecting on my PC. The popups of the blocked domains that Webroot gives are starting to come really fast so I am now adding the domain names to my host files :/ . Now I get one about every minute. Please help sad.gif

I run a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge with windows 7 x64

I sweeped my computer with Malwarebytes, Webroot Spy Swepper, and Bitdefender but nothing shows up.

I have a log of hijackthis that I will show below.

This is the list that I've added to my hosts file so far :

Try Sophos please

Please download Sophos Anti-rootkit & save it to your desktop.
alternate download link

  • Double-click sar_15_sfx.exe to begin the installation, read the license agreement and click Accept.
  • Allow the default location of C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Rootkit and click Install.

    • Files tagged as Removable: No are not marked for removal and cannot be removed.
    • Files tagged as Removable: Yes (clean up recommended) are marked for removal by default.
    • Files tagged as Removable: Yes (but clean up not recommended) are not marked for removal because Sophos did not recognize them. These files will require further investigation.

Before performing an ARK scan it is recommended to do the following to ensure more accurate results and avoid common issues that may cause false detections.
  • Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug you Internet cable connection.
  • Clean out your temporary files.
  • Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
  • Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.

I got annoyed so I formatted my computer...

I decided to not install any pirated software... I had Microsoft 2010 office and flash cs5 ( I'm a student at university
therefore i don't have 500$ to spend on that )

I reinstalled bit defender, spy sweeper, ad aware, my wireless mouse driver, firefox, went on mvps and got some hosts file entries,
code blocks and Ultramon )

plugged in my USB key only with notepad files in it.


While doing this I restarted my machine a few times because I was installing the anti viruses.

Then it started again ...

The problem I'm having is only that I'm getting domains that are trying to connect to my computer and every time it happens, spy sweeper tells me with a little pop up in the corner of my screen. I don't see how to got this again maybe its mvps or ultramon...

MBR attacks don't get wiped when you run a reformat so that's where we'll concentrate our efforts next.

Please download MBRCheck to your desktop.

1. Double click MBRCheck.exe to run it (Right click and run as Administrator for Vista).
2. It will open a black window, please do not fix anything (if it gives you an option).
3. Exit that window and it will produce a log (MBRCheck_date_time).
4. Please post that log when you reply.

Some thing odd happened. The ads stopped coming for a few days. I waited to see if it would come back. A few day later I noticed I had no more host file entries so I decide to re-add them. When I added them again the pop ups also start coming back. I have also noticed that my host file changes to a .bak extension and a .file extension over and over again.

I ran MBRcheck and it said I have an Abnormal partition. The log is attached

Reset the Hosts file as shown here

The MBR is not a known MBR but isn't necessarily a bad one.

Please do the following:

Run MBRCheck again

When prompted, Enter 'Y' and hit ENTER for more options
When you see: "Enter your choice: Enter the physical disk number to dump (0-99, -1 to exit):"

Enter 0 to dump the MBR to the physical disk.

Name the dumped file as dump0.dat

Enter -1 to exit.

Please then locate the files and visit this site and follow the instructions for uploading the file.

Hi,

I have not had a reply from you for 3 days. Can you please tell me if you still need help with your computer as I am unable to help other members with their problems while I have your topic still open. The time taken between posts can also change the situation with your PC making it more difficult to help you.

If you like you can PM me.

Thanks,


m0le
