I have just reinstalled Win 7 for the 20th time on a new laptop using the factory installed media and have been studying what this malware does to the system before first boot. I definitely need professional help! I have 5 computers all hacked up the same. They all have been wiped clean using DBAN and the batteries and BIOS batteries removed. The laptop mentioned above has has Win 7 installed and I have followed the forum instructions on prepping it. They all exhibit the same behavior that is complexly obfuscated. When you install any AV, even in safe mode, it is reconfigured and there are even custom made files created to overwrite critical AV files. You cannot update the AV, but the system dupes you into thinking it has. There are 14 ports sending my data out using different protocols. There are 22 Windows DLLs that fool Windows into thinking they are genuine, but they are not. Windows Search is radically altered, task scheduler is completely altered, and on and on.


I have scanned this system remotely in safe mode dozens of times and finally hit paydirt. GMER found a rootkit in the directory Windows Software Distribution ending in .edb. It was hidden and password protected. I could not even take ownership of it! Of course later in the day it was gone... I could go on and on, but today something incredible was found when I dropped in a Linux CD with Parted on it. I ran a simple disk scan to see all was cool with the system partition... When you get back to me, I will upload a scrrenshot of what it is showing. Maybe you can tell me what's going on...

Anyway, I'll look forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks much,

Bob

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Malware topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic390435.html

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
