Many thanks to all that review these submissions and help us mere mortals keep computers working. Have a Windows XP Pro (SP3) system that was in full flower WhiteSmoke Translator and something more. Worked through the sequence described in topic368378. Booted in SafeMode, no network; ran RKill (which I had previously renamed) which reported nothing, ran Malwarebytes a few times picking off more buggers every time. Rebooted SafeMode with Network to get Malwarebytes updates and removed more buggers (mostly adware). Once Malwarebytes was clean, attempted to complete outstanding Microsoft updates which are all blocked. Attempting to web browse to security sites gets redirected or blocked. Keyboard logging suspected. tdsskiller did not seem to find anything (don't have the log at my fingertips); shall review the gmer log along with everyone else. Per the guidelines:

Hello howwhi,
  • Welcome to Bleeping Computer.
  • My name is fireman4it and I will be helping you with your Malware problem.

    Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean".
  • Finally, please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply, unless they do not fit into the post.



Can You tell me anything about these files?
c:\documents and settings\administrator\howard06.exe
c:\documents and settings\administrator\howard07.exe
c:\documents and settings\administrator\howard05.exe
c:\documents and settings\administrator\howard04.exe



1.
Install Recovery Console and Run ComboFix

This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.

  • Close any open windows, including this one.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • If you did not have it installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.
  • Posted Image
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Note:The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you
should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

  • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

    Posted Image
  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you. Please post the contents of the log (C:\ComboFix.txt).
Leave your computer alone while ComboFix is running.
ComboFix will restart your computer if malware is found; allow it to do so.


Note: Please Do NOT mouseclick combofix's window while its running because it may cause it to stall.

Thank you for your very quick reply, fireman4it.

Glad you asked :) These are the aliases I used to get past the blocking bugger.

howard04.exe = hijackthis.exe
howard05.exe = OTL by OldTimer
howard06.exe = Security Check by screen317
howard07.exe = defogger.exe
howard08.scr = dds.scr

I have ComboFix installed on the computer (as howard10) but was waiting for the command to fire. I shall report back tomorrow.

Hello,

Make sure Combofix is on your Desktop not in a folder somewhere else.

Have run ComboFix (as howard11.exe). I did not see any programs that I recognize in the ComboFix log. I am primarily a linux user so anything Windows is suspect by me.

Am still not able to complete Windows Updates from the www.update.microsoft.com website (new and different problem??). The updates to be done are all .NET Framework stuff: KB951847, KB2418241, KB2146447, KB983583, KB982524, KB982168.

Hello,

Try running this and see if it help with Windows updates.

We need to repair some of windows' internal registration settings
  • Please download Dial-A-Fix from one of the following mirrors:
  • Extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Double click Dial-a-Fix.exe to start the program.
  • Press the green double checkmark box (Looks like this: Posted Image)
  • UNcheck "Empty Temp Folders", as well as "Adjust Time/Date" in the prep section. The prep section should then look like this:
    Posted Image
  • When the window looks like this, press the GO button in the bottom of the window.

Fireman4it,

Downloaded and executed Dial-a-fix. When loading, Dial-a-fix reported that it could not determine the current version of IE (which is 8) and could not load some .dll. ??? Ran the program as instructed. We are still unable to complete Windows Update KB951847.

Fireman4it,

Hope your lights [stayed on | came back on quickly]. Know what that stuff means.

Worked through the .Net recovery process listed above --- twice. Seems the order of installation is different than you list. Once the removal tool finishes, one needs to install the .Net 3.5 Framework SP1 THEN .Net 1.1 and 1.1 SP1. Logical?? To someone at Microsoft it is...

Now plugging away at the remaining umpteen outstanding Microsoft Updates. Picking them off a few at a time. I think we are at a closing point on this case. Many, many thanks for your assistance.

lol, If you work at Microsoft you might want to tell them to fix this then. They should tell that there is a certain order.
