I have some sort of a virus which causes IE to open and start up various websites. If I close the IE window prior to the page loading, I can still use my PC for a while before it locks up. If I do not catch the new IE window right away, and the page fully loads, my PC locks up right away.

I had some other viruses earlier this week and was able to remove those by running Malewarebytes but this particular problem still exists. The virus I removed earlier this week was really nasty and prevented me from booting up until I utilized the RKILL trick I found on this forum. I also had to rename mbamsetup.exe and mbam.exe in order to get the the tool installed and a fresh definition loaded.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer. Sorry for the delay.

Let's see if we can dig this thing up.

I need to see the logs from your Malwarebytes scans. They can be retrieved by starting Malwarebytes, then clicking on the Logs tab. Select the relevant log(s) (they are organized by date and time) and click Open to view them. Copy and paste the contents in your next reply.

***************************************************

Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.log" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and copy/paste its contents in your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try unchecking the Devices box in addition to the others previously requested. Also, try running GMER in Safe Mode.
**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries
