I'm a recently hired part time Tech person for an elementary school in Hawaii. I will start off by saying I'm not qualified very well for the job, however I'm the most tech savvy person in the whole school so i get to try to figure out lots of things that are a over my head. I'm going to try to get them to hire one of my friends who's actually an IT person but I don't know if he'll want a job at an elementary school. :P

Anyway, One of the Computers in the School Office (one of the important ones that a registrar uses) has recently lost it's ability to go online. I've tried a few things over the past couple of days without any success.

Restarted Computer
changed Ethernet cords/jacks
tried another computer through the same jack (working)
Full Scanned with malwarebytes and Mcafee (nothing)
System restore (failed 4 different times at different restore points)
Pinged google.com (seemed to work)
can see other Workgroup Networked PCs

I'm also giving you a hijackthis log. Like I said I'm ok at figuring some things out. But this is starting to frustrate me and I have no idea what's going on. I've run into similar problems on my personal computer at home but it's usually fixable by restarting my computer and/or modem. Or it's on the other end and automagically fixes itself. lol.

Anyway, Thanks a whole bunch for all your time and help. It's greatly appreciated.

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.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit scanner. Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log
