Infected with antimalware doctor popups and browser redirects

Posted 01 October 2010 - 07:39 PM

I have a Dell XPS 400 desktop with an XP operating system. My C Drive is at about 40 percent capacity – 85.6G of free space vs. 58.4G used. I also have a 298G second hard drive that I only use to store music files on – it’s at about 70 percent capacity. XP is updated through Service Pack 2 (long story – trying to install Service Pack 3 causes my machine to not be able to boot and the free hotline for SP3 couldn’t fix problem in three days).

The Kapersky online scanner says I have been infected by Trojan.win32.agent2.cvif, and that it is being activated through one of my svchost.exe files. Kapersky, however, does not make any mention of how to get rid of it or what files it is made up of.

The problem originally manifested Sept. 28 as popups on my monitor claiming it was from a company called Antimalware Doctor that had found viruses on my machine. I closed all appearances immediately, but afterwards I could not access the Internet, my e-mail or Word documents.

I did scans with (newly updated) Malwarebytes AntiMalware, SpyBot Search and Destroy, SuperAntiSpyware, my AVG antivirus program, Windows Defender and Windows Malicious Software Tool Remover. Each one found viruses, spyware, malware, etc. that the others hadn't (full scans were done about two weeks before this that showed zero infections). I now have full function of my system and can get online.

None of the software, however, can repair the remaining problem - being redirected to fake antivirus or insurance sites when I use either Internet Explorer or Firefox. I don't know if these fake sites are continuing to dump more crap on my machine. It doesn't look like it, but I can’t be sure.

As an example, if I click on the link to the MalwareBytes site using Firefox, this Web address shows up instead:
hxxp://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/nclk?sa=L&ai=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.malwarebytes.org%2F Sometimes it takes me to a fake or scam site, usually anti-virus, insurance or travel related, and sometimes Firefox prevents the page from redirecting.

When you look through my logs, could you possibly also keep an eye out for a solution to a lesser ongoing problem that started about a year ago – I publish a magazine from home and after a couple of hours of using Photoshop, Word, Quark and other software, the Task Manager shows that the virtual memory size of “explorer.exe” is at 1.2 million K and operations have slown to a crawl or frozen, forcing me to reboot. This never happened in four years until a few months ago. None of the publishing software has been added or upgraded in the four years.

Here is my DDS.txt log:

IMPORTANT: I ran GMER, but when I clicked "Save As," an hourglass appeared and my screen froze. I let it sit for 20 minutes with no change. I could not access the Internet or any folders, and the Windows Start function at the bottom left of the screen also would not function. I had to power down from the desktop tower and appeared to have a normal reboot.

Thanks in advance!

Hello and thanks! I am ready whenever you are ... my system is showing signs of more stress since I posted my log last week. I work from home so I am generally ready anytime of day or night to fix this. In preparation, I have downloaded Combo Fix, Hijack This, GMER, Defogger and Root Repeal (but, of course, have not run them, except for GMER as per instructions last week, which as mentioned above, froze my system instead of saving a log.

Please run Combofix. There is quite a lot of evidence of malware so we need to remove what we can.

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.

Here is the ComboFix log ... of note, during the process it found that C://Windows/System32/winlogon.exe and C://Windows/explorer.exe were infected and the program said it fixed and restored them. That has probably fixed the problem with my explorer.exe Virtual Memory jumping to 1.5 million K and slowing or stalling my machine! I also clicked on a Web site that I was being redirected from the past week and there was no redirect in either IE or Firefox. Thanks and I'll watch for your reply.Attached File  ComboFix.txt   19.05KB   1 downloads

That has removed the annoying SKYNET and UAC rootkit components as well as replacing the rootkit-infected system files. We have to rerun Combofix to clear up.

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:


uInternet Settings,ProxyServer = http=

FF - ProfilePath - c:\documents and settings\Todd Haefer\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ddwegk0x.default\
FF - user.js: keyword.URL -

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-51545925-2108056050-642628488-1005\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved\{99275CD8-1FC3-FE62-CD41-8834824E022E}*]


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

If the program requests for you to update Combofix then click Yes.

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

Here is the new Combo Fix log after rescanning. I don't know if this is of any relevance, but both times I ran ComboFix, after the second stage I received a Windows error message that said, "PEV.cfxxe has encountered a problem and needs to close." I was given a choice of sending error report, don't send or debug. I clicked on "Don't Send" and Combo Fix continued normally.Attached File  ComboFix.txt   17.34KB   2 downloads

Don't worry about the Pev error message. Not a problem.

Please run ESET's online scan
  1. Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  2. Click the button.
  3. For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    1. Click on to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    2. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Check
  5. Click the button.
  6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  7. Leave the top box checked and then check
  8. Push the Start button.
  9. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  10. When the scan completes, push
  11. Push , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  12. Push the button.
  13. Push
NOTE: If no malware is found then no log will be produced. Let me know if this is the case.

After that run how is the PC running?

There's the hlp.dat file which regenerates the redirections. So that's handy. thumbup2.gif

There's also quarantined files and some in system restore. Nothing to worry about there.

How is the PC running now?

I do not have any redirects on either Firefox or IE, and my explore.exe Virtual Memory is around 20,000K with multiple applications open, instead of 1.5 millionK! At least one of these trojans has been on my machine for a long time, because I've been having the explorer.exe VM problem since last winter. The redirects just started last week. Thank you very much for all of your help so far! I shall drink a Samuel Smith Taddy Porter in your honor tonight! I live in Wisconsin in the U.S., but there are all kinds of good English ales from small English breweries in the stores.

Cheers to you, shuggyo

Just this to do 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.

We Need to Clean Up our Mess
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.
If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.

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

Use this next program to check for updates for programs already on your system. Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically, make sure that updates on any that are flagged are carried out as soon as possible

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, happy surfing!
