During a system files scan using the McAfee Virus scanner, 51 files titled SUSP_IRP_MJ_CREATE which could not be deleted or quarantined. A google search of the file lead me to this site, particularly, to a post from a user having a similar problem. The suggested remedy in that case did not work for me because my infected computer could not open any of the links (in firefox), although they all worked on another, "healthy", computer. PLEASE HELP!!!

I'm running Windows XP home, fully updated.

Alright, forget the download issues, I got creative and downloaded the info on another PC and transferred it to the sick one via flash drive. I ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware quick sacn, ATF cleaner, and SUPER Anti-Spyware. They took care of most of the problem. My computer was flickering out of any text, programs, and menus i had running, but that has apparently ceased although my task bar still looks funny, and I'm still running sluggish overall. I ran another McAfee scan and there are still 27 entries of SUSP_IRP_MJ_CREATE found (down from 51 before I downloaded the other stuff). Also, I cannot connect to any wireless networks if my card is disabled before windows starts (works fine if enabled before windows starts). I'm running a FULL SCAN in malwarebytes now in hopes of cleaning everything up, but is there anything else I can do if I'm still not completely cured?

Please follow these instructions: How to remove Google Redirects or the TDSS, TDL3, Alureon rootkit using TDSSKiller
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • When the program opens, click the Start Scan button.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process. <- Important!!
    Note: If 'Suspicious' objects are detected, you will be given the option to Skip or Quarantine. Skip will be the default selection.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
-- For any files detected as 'Suspicious' (except those identified as Forged to be cured after reboot) get a second opinion by submitting to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

TDSSKiller found no threats. As I said in my second post, I ran a complete scan with malwarebyte's anti-malware. the result of this scan found and removed one item which appeared to remove all entries of SUSP_IRP_MJ_CREATE and has restored my PC to normal function. Thanks!

That's good as this infection has been seen the the TDSS rootkit.

So are you saying your computer is running normally and there are no more signs of infection?

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, 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 backed up, renamed and 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 Posted Image > 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 Posted Image > 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.
