Posted 12 April 2011 - 08:30 AM

I have been struggling to get this under control for a few days now. I have tried every spyware/malware scanner I can get my hands on (MalwareBytes, Spybot S&D, MS Security Essentials, SuperAntiSypware, and Viper as my primary anti-virus) and while some threats have been found and removed nothing has fixed the issues I'm having.

First, IE8: when trying to load any webpage is very slow and sometimes hangs for several seconds (I also see About: Blank in the status bar, at the bottom, when going to bing.com seems weird) FF4 I'm seeing some hijacked redirects when using Bing as my search engine. I'll click on a link that ends up going to a page I didn't expect click the back button going back to the results page click on the same link and end up on the expected page. Also when in safe mode IE8 loads bing.com fast and does not hang.

Below is my HiJackThis log file if someone could look it over and let me know if there is anything I should be concerned about I would appreciate it. Thank you, John

At times when I use bing.com or google.com and click on a link in the search results I am getting redirected to another site other than one one I clicked on. Clicking back to the search results and clicking again on the same link takes me to the correct website.

Attached are the DDS log files. Thanks in advance!

  • Please reply using the Add/Reply 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. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.

That looks like some hostsfile hijacking. Lets get rid of that first. :)

COMBOFIX
---------------
Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:
Bleepingcomputer
ForoSpyware
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • Double click on Combofix.exe and 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.
  • 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, or if you are running Vista, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Posted Image


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 shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\Combofix.txt in your next reply.

regards, Elise

Your Adobe Reader is now up to date!


Your version of Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system.

Ugh! after more than 6 hours MalwareBytes crapped out on me ending with an error "Expression to complex" and it closed on me. I had been checking on it off and on all day and nothing had been found. I did uninstall the old versions and install the recommended versions of Adobe Reader and Java. So far I have not seen any issues with unexpected pages showing up when I do a search in Google so maybe that has been taken care of too.

Do you want me to attempt to run MalewareBytes again?

Thanks.

You can try to run an MBAM quick scan, just to be sure. That should finish a lot faster.

Run also the following scan.

ESET ONLINE SCANNER
----------------------------
I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image
      icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.

regards, Elise

That looks good. :) I'll wait for the ESET results as well.
