Hello and thank you for taking the time to assist me. I have 3 issues which have all started recently. 1) Google Redirect: I think I MAY have solved this with newly installed Avast since I'm no longer being redirected but... 2) the new Avast program keeps detecting C:\windows\system32\drivers\agp440.sys as a suspicious file (what is it? do I need it? how to get rid of it?) 3) Even after Avast full scan I'm still hearing random ads in the background - the last one I heard was an excerpt from one of Charlie Sheen's tours so that was at least amusing :)

I can follow directions and am eager to get rid of this junk! Here's my DDS.txt log and attached attached.txt

Thanks for your time!

Hi,

Please do the following:

Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
  • Click the Scan button to start the scan
  • On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop and post it in your next reply.

Thanks for the help, CatByte! FWIW I've ran Avast, AVG and SpyBot since posting that DDS log - the problems still persist though. Here's the aswMBR.txt from the scan you asked for.

Hi

Please do the following:

Download Combofix from either of the links below. You must rename it to iexplore before saving it.
Save it to your desktop. Change the save as file type to "all files"

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, delete it, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**

  • If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
  • Tools->Options->Main tab
  • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

Hi - Before I forget, I really need some help with choosing how to protect my system. I have been using an old laptop that I just installed AVG and Avast on as well and the thing is just so dang slow it's pretty much unusable - like it takes 5 minutes just to open Notepad, the HD is constantly whirring, and forget about sending email. Questions: Do I need more than one antivirus program? What are good basic settings that will balance protection with speed. I know it's an old computer, but without antivirus both laptop and tower fly. I do no online gaming and no file sharing. I'm a huge multi-tasker though running several windows of Word, Excel, several windows of Firefox with multiple tabs on each, PaintShop, and calculator for the most part. I'm sure this is covered in a multitude of threads within BC forums, but I honestly don't know how to weed through it all and still understand what I'm reading. Seriously, a point in any one direction would be much appreciated.

OK, now on to running Combofix....
I had a little trouble with disabling the antivirus software read about it below to skip down to the log.

Before disabling antivirus I got Avast warning that agp440.exe needed to be dealt with. I chose to ignore it.

I disabled Avast - right clicking on taskbar icon (showing disabled)
I disabled AVG - Advanced settings> temp disable > disable realtime (showing disabled)
I turned off the Firewall and Automatic Updates via Windows Security Center
I downloaded Combofix; renamed it Bl33pthisthing.exe; saved it to my desktop; closed all windows and ran Bl33pthisthing.exe

After starting the Combofix program I had two error messages. First I got a "Forefox.exe - Application Error" window stating the instructions at "0x100086" referenced memory at "0x100086c"and the memory could not be read. Click Ok to remove or cancel to debug the program. By the time I finished writing down the error message Combofix was at the "warning" message. I chose OK to remove.

The second error message said Combofix couldn't run when AVG is installed due to blah blah blah (I have the exact text, but I'm sure you've seen it before).

Back to the drawing board with AVG. I again tried disabling it. Tools> advanced> temp disable AVG> Apply> Disable Realtime >OK. Rebooted but AVG was still not deactivated.

LASTLY: I uninstalled AVG through the control panel and rebooted.
____________________________________________
I now have Avast disabled, AVG uninstalled, and Firewall/automatic updates/virus protection are all OFF in Windows Security Center.

I rAn Combofix... during "preparing to run" it backs up my registry

Just before Combofix goes into "autoscan" an Avast window pops up saying it found the suspicious agp440.sys file!!!! BUT Avast is disabled??? I'm confused on how this happened!! I don't touch the window not wanting to mess up Combofix. A window pop up saying "ComboFix has detected the presence of rootkit activity and needs to reboot the machine" with one OK button as choice. At this exact moment the Avast suspicious window closes and a new Avast window opens saying it needs to finish the cleanup process and reboot (but I didn't choose to do anything with the agp440 file). I do not click the Avast window, but do click the Combix "OK" to reboot.

Windows reboots normally (Avast does not run it's usual safe mode clean up)
The Combofix window loads (no programs shown on taskbar) and Combofix again scans for infected files then displays about 40 or so tasks it completed during the reboot. Combofix generates a log. Taskbar no long showing Avast or AVG at all.

Hi

I recommend that you uninstall Avast and use the AVG remover to completely remove AVG

Avast removal tool:
http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-uninstall-utility.html
How to uninstall our software using aswClear.exe:
  • Download aswClear.exe on to your desktop
  • Open (execute) it
  • If you installed avast! in a different folder than the default, browse for it. (Note: Be careful! The content of any folder you choose will be deleted!)
  • Click REMOVE
  • Restart your computer


AVG Remover utility removes all parts of AVG installation on your computer, including registry items, installation and user files on your disk, etc.

http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/avg_arm_sup_____.dir/avgremover.exe

(avgremover.exe)
You should only ever have one AntiVirus installed, more than one causes system slow downs, conflicts and crashes


when those two AV's are completely uninstalled, download and install Microsoft Security Essentials, it's ideal for an older computer as it takes up very little resources.

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/


Now do the following:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected. <-- very important
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.

Extra Note:If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.



NEXT


Go here to run an online scanner from ESET.
  • Note: You will need to use Internet explorer for this scan
  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click Start
  • When asked, allow the activeX control to install
  • Click Start
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is unticked and the Scan Archives option is ticked.
  • Click on Advanced Settings, ensure the options Scan for potentially unwanted applications, Scan for potentially unsafe applications, and Enable Anti-Stealth Technology are ticked.
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • When the scan completes, press the LIST OF THREATS FOUND button
  • Press EXPORT TO TEXT FILE , name the file ESETSCAN and save it to your desktop
  • Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Press the BACK button.
  • Press Finish

I removed both AVG and AVAST as you said. I then ran Ccleaner and got rid of some bits and pieces left behind. I also moved some files that referenced these programs in the windows\prefetch to the recycle bin.

I decided not to install the Windows Security Essentials yet, since I didn't want it to get in the way of the next scans....

QUESTION?? When I install Microsoft Security Essentials, should I uninstall Malbytes to avoid having two antivirus programs running simultaneously?

I ran Malbytes, but it never gave m the "show results and I didn't have the opportunity to make sure everything is checked or check to REMOVE SELECTED (Which is marked as "very important" in you instructions. Instead it went right to the log which I saved then rebooted. There were two error windows that popped up saying it couldn't find something - darn if I didn't write it down because I thought it was part of the install process rather than the scan process since it was hidden behind the main MBAM window during it's scan. It did say no malicious files were detected though so I assume that is why I didn't have the opportunity to remove anything. I ran MBAM again and got the same result but without the error windows.

I ran the ESET per your instructions with no issues.

Hi,

go ahead and install Microsoft Security Essentials now

Keep MalwareBytes antimalware, it isn't an AV and wont conflict, it's an antimalware program, they work very well together

Please do the following:

  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before following the steps below.
  • They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Copy/paste the text inside the Codebox below into notepad:

Here's how to do that:
Click Start > Run type Notepad click OK.
This will open an empty notepad file:

Copy all the text inside of the code box - Press Ctrl+C (or right click on the highlighted section and choose 'copy')

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic395567.html/page__view__findpost__p__2240211

Collect::
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntkrsfc.dll


Now paste the copied text into the open notepad - press CTRL+V (or right click and choose 'paste')

Save this file to your desktop, Save this as "CFScript"


Here's how to do that:

1.Click File;
2.Click Save As... Change the directory to your desktop;
3.Change the Save as type to "All Files";
4.Type in the file name: CFScript
5.Click Save ...

Posted Image
  • Referring to the screenshot above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.
  • ComboFix will now run a scan on your system. It may reboot your system when it finishes. This is normal.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the log in your next reply.

CAUTION: Do not mouse-click ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

Hello CatByte

I disabled MSE by unchecking the realtime checking.
I really couldn't find a way of disabling Malwarebytes and by what I read the free version doesn't have a realtime checker. I did however uncheck all of the scanning options in settings just to be on the safe side.

I created the file CFScript with the text you put in the codebox. I Drug CFScript onto the combofix file. The ComboFix program said there was an update since I previously downloaded it on the 8th, so I got the update. I canceled that session of Combofix and again drug the CFScript onto the newest version of combofix.
Combofix ran without incident. I see in the combofix log that Microsoft Security Client was apparently running a malware program. Don't know what that is. I did disable MSE and Malbytes and turned off the firewall and auto updates in the windows security center.

I updated Adobe
I installed Java - I just did an upgrade on this on the 6th and when I went to control panel to upgrade it again the darn thing wasn't even there. It must have been removed by one of the virus progras or cleaners... interesting. Anyway, I once again have the latest version.

I see in Combofix log that some remnants of SuperAV and Spybot that I uninstalled through the control panel left pieces behind. I'll clean those out later.

I turned MSE and firewall back on and rechecked the scanning options in Malwarebytes. The computer is running MUCH better. Google works again. Haven't heard any ads since running the first Combofix a few days ago.

Looks good.

Just some housekeeping to do now, please do the following:


You can delete the DDS and aswMBR logs and programs from your desktop.


NEXT


Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix

  • Make sure your security programs are totally disabled.
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now copy/paste Combofix /uninstall into the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the ..X and the /U, it needs to be there.

If there are any logs/tools remaining on your desktop > right click and delete them.


NEXT


Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer against malware infections.

  • It is good security practice to change your passwords to all your online accounts on a fairly regular basis, this is especially true after an infection. Refer to this Microsoft article
    Strong passwords: How to create and use them
    Then consider a password keeper, to keep all your passwords safe. KeePass is a small utility that allows you to manage all your passwords.

  • Keep Windows updated by regularly checking their website at :
    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
    This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.

  • Make Internet Explorer more secure
    • Click Start > Run
    • Type Inetcpl.cpl & click OK
    • Click on the Security tab
    • Click Reset all zones to default level
    • Make sure the Internet Zone is selected & Click Custom level
    • In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to "Prompt", and ("Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe") to "Disable".
    • Next Click OK, then Apply button and then OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

  • Download TFC to your desktop
    • Close any open windows.
    • Double click the TFC icon to run the program
    • TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run,
    • Click the Start button to begin the process.
    • Allow TFC to run uninterrupted.
    • The program should not take long to finish it's job
    • Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine,
    • if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean
    It's normal after running TFC cleaner that the PC will be slower to boot the first time.

  • WOT, Web of Trust, warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites:
    • Green to go
    • Yellow for caution
    • Red to stop
    WOT has an addon available for both Firefox and IE

  • Keep a backup of your important files - Now, more than ever, it's especially important to protect your digital files and memories. This article is full of good information on alternatives for home backup solutions.

  • ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed.

  • In light of your recent issue, I'm sure you'd like to avoid any future infections. Please take a look at this well written article:
    PC Safety and Security--What Do I Need?.


**Be very wary with any security software that is advertised in popups or in other ways. They are not only usually of no use, but often have malware in them.


Thank you for your patience, and performing all of the procedures requested.

Please respond one last time so we can consider the thread resolved and close it, thank-you.

I removed the log files.
I uninstalled Combofix. I forgot about stopping the real-time checker in MSE, but combofix reminded me then uninstalled without incident.
I changed my internet security options per your instructions.
I downloaded and ran TCF and rebooted.
I'm not too sure about WOT. It doesn't have very good reviews. I will try it out though only because you have suggested it.
Installed ERUNT
I'm kind of good at backing up my data; I'll be better at it after this though :)

Thanks for the extra links on PC safety/security and creating passwords; I'll definitely check out the keepass since that's a big problem with creating a unique password for every site. I won't say my computer is quite as fast as it is with no antivirus running, but it's not dog slow either and is more protected now than before.

Awesome help. I've passed on this website name a few times already.
Thank you CatByte for taking the time to help. I'm so glad I didn't have to reformat! Your help is much appreciated!

Hey CatByte,

After finishing off the recommneded add-ons/installs. I figured I'd ran a few of the things you suggested earlier for peace of mind that everything is looking good with thought of creating an "image" of my drive on my external but...

I ran the TFC tool to clean up again and Cclean. Then I ran the ESET which showed that Win32 Agaent CBFNBEO trojan again. I also noticed that in add/remove programs there was a program called Backweb earlier which is now gone - I assume uninstalled when I uninstalled something else or ran one of the cleaners.

Is this actually a virus? or one of those false positives I've read about. If so, any idea where it generates from?
Is backweb a dangerous file? In case I see it again.

Sorry to bug you again.

========= ESET SCAN ===============

C:\Program Files\BackWeb\BackWeb Client\6.2.3.66\Program\runner.exe probably a variant of Win32/Agent.CBFNBEO trojan
C:\Program Files\Updates from HP\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe probably a variant of Win32/Agent.CBFNBEO trojan
Operating memory probably a variant of Win32/Agent.CBFNBEO trojan

Here is an explanation of Backweb Client

http://www.cexx.org/dlgli.htm

It's not necessarily bad, but has been known to include adware - hence the alert on it.

Personally, I don't think you need it, but it is your choice - ESET is just alerting you to it's presence.

I'm not sure what would have removed it? It may have been included with one of the othere files that was removed.

You can set ESET to remove it if you wish.

Thanks Catbyte. That backweb thing hasn't reappeared in add/remove so it must have went away with another program (AVG/spybot/super antivirus perhaps). I ran ESET and got rid of the Win32/Agent.CBFNBEO again. Don't know if it's back. Haven't ran ESET again.

I have noticed that my internet is painstakingly slow now. Any suggestions? I'm thinking it has to do with the either the internet securities that are now turned on to prevent a virus attack, the installation of the WOT or the newer Firefox version 4 I recently upgraded to. Is there maybe something I can lower the guard on a bit to get faster page uploads - setting are as you suggested in a previous post? It doesn't seem to matter if it's a site I go to all the time or something new they are all so slow I could fall asleep waiting for them to load. If I should continue the newer aspect of my computer woes in another forum let me know and I'll bug out and head over. :)

Thanks!
