Posted 26 October 2010 - 12:21 AM

I've scanned my system with Malwarebytes, Super Anti-Spyware, and ESET Anti-virus and cleaned all that was found and I still am having problems with my web browsers (IE8 and Safari with IE8). Sometime when I initially click to start IE8 and it will not load until I press it a second time. Also, while in the browser if I left click it sometimes re-directs me to various search sites, if I use the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab it will freeze the browser sometime eventually loading the link in a separate window. When I close out IE8 completely I notice in the task manager the there is one iexplorer.exe is still running. I also notice that ESET keeps blocking the following site: c3.lkckclckl1i1i.com/aZC38sID6W7YAjS44c038f513... at IP: I've blocked this IP in my firewall for now. I do recall sometime back that ESET and notified me it found a virus, but I had took it to mean it blocked it... guess not. I do not remember the name, but when I searched for it back then I remember it had said this virus would eventually completely lock down your browser (after PC restarts) and eventually grind windows to a halt - it also mentioned that winlogon.exe running was a sign of infection which I do have and cannot end winlogon.exe. I assume it hasn't gotten worse because ESET is blocking that website.

I've included DDS.txt and attach.txt but wasn't sure about the ark.txt file from reading the instructions. Also, note that I use a 32gb SSD drive as my C: drive for windows and tried to farm out as much as I can to my striped volume D: drive including program files, user accounts, and page file.

While searching around the forums I noticed the experts expressing the importance of keeping up on updates, windows especially. When trying to update windows 7 i ran into the following error: 80072efe. After reviewing search results for "80072efe solution" I found at:


A link to: http://support.kaspersky.com/downloads/utils/tdsskiller.exe

After running this program it found and cured the following which resulted in no further windows update and internet browser problems:

Since my other malware and virus scanner software did not see this ... does this mean all is well or do i need to do further cleaning?

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • In the custom scan box paste the following:
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /90
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. I suggest you do this and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.
