Posted 12 December 2010 - 08:18 PM

Hello. This morning, upon visiting a MySpace page, a download box quickly flashed on my screen that seemingly resembled a Java update followed by a popup saying I won a $1000 gift card from Wal-Mart at "redeemyourprize.com". Now, several popups seem to randomly appear while I'm browsing the internet, as well as google searches being redirected. The popups include google searches for "111211url.cptgt.com", "http://www.nationalcreditfixers.com", and "www.checkedstats.com". In addition, popups come up with ads persuading me to visit "epicvideoarcade.com" and "collegeconduit.com". I use Nod32 as my anti-virus, and have run that as well as Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, and SUPERAntiSpyware, however nothing was found from any of the programs. I am unable to restart in Safe Mode, as the computer locks up before it loads Windows. It seems as though the popups do not start until I have opened my browser, as when I restarted to run all of the malware/virus scans, I was able to use all the scanners without a single popup/voice ad. However, upon opening my browser, I began to receive popups and phantom voice ads despite not having any browser open. Upon opening my Windows Task Manager, I found several instances of iexplore.exe despite not having any browsers open, and several instances of rundll32.exe that ranged from 5k to 30k of memory usage. Upon closing out of all of these, the popups appeared to have been deterred for a noticeable period of time. After continuing to browse the internet, when the popups appeared again, I noticed more instances of rundll32.exe plaguing my task manager.

Here is my DDS.txt log:

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.
DDS.scr
DDS.pif
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 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

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.

    Posted Image
  • 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 you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in safe mode.
-- If GMER crashes or keeps resulting in a BSODs, uncheck Devices on the right side before scanning
.
