Posted 26 May 2011 - 06:20 AM

now experiencing browser redirects (stopzilla, atdmt.com, clickcheck, admanage.com, howto4pc.org) and windows update will not function. AVG and Malwarebytes do not detect any issues. Start menu program says, "Some items cannot be shown. Items have been added ..."

Began by following instructions from the preparation guide found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html

GMER scan would crash in Windows "Normal Mode". I had to start in safe mode for GMER to scan completely. Found TDL4 and followed the instructions from a TDL4 thread found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic398454.html/page__p__2262521__hl__tdl4__fromsearch__1#entry2262521

Ran TDSSKiller, ComboFix, MBAM, ESET Online Scan. Log files attached.

Computer seems to be functioning correctly. No browser redirects. Windows update at least will start. MBAM, no malware found. ESET scan, four threats found (all trojans). Everything appears okay. If possible, I would appreciate your evaluation of the log files for a clean bill of health.

Thanks very much!

Hello and welcome to the forums!

My secret agent name on the forums is SweetTech (you can call me ST for short), it's a pleasure to meet you. :)

I am very sorry for the delay in responding, but as you can see we are at the moment being flooded with logs which, when paired with the never-ending shortage of helpers, resulted in the delayed responding to your thread.

I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems.

If you have since resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please inform me so that this topic can be closed.

If you have not, please adhere to the guidelines below and then follow instructions as outlined further below:

  • Logs from malware removal programs (OTL is one of them) can take some time to analyze. I need you to be patient while I analyze any logs you post. Please remember, I am a volunteer, and I do have a life outside of these forums.
  • Please make sure to carefully read any instruction that I give you. Attention to detail is important! Since I cannot see or directly interact with your computer I am dependent on you to "be my eyes" and provide as much information as you can regarding the current state of your computer.
  • If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, do NOT continue! Stop and ask!
  • If I instruct you to download a specific tool in which you already have, please delete the copy that you have and re-download the tool. The reason I ask you to do this is because these tools are updated fairly regularly.
  • Do not do things I do not ask for, such as running a spyware scan on your computer. The one thing that you should always do, is to make sure sure that your anti-virus definitions are up-to-date!
  • Please do not use the Attachment feature for any log file. Do a Copy/Paste of the entire contents of the log file and submit it inside your post.
  • I am going to stick with you until ALL malware is gone from your system. I would appreciate it if you would do the same. From this point, we're in this together ;)
    Because of this, you must reply within three days
    failure to reply will result in the topic being closed!
  • Please do not PM me directly for help. If you have any questions, post them in this topic.
  • Lastly, I am no magician. I will try very hard to fix your issues, but no promises can be made. Also be aware that some infections are so severe that you might need to resort to reformatting and reinstalling your operating system.
    Don't worry, this only happens in severe cases, but it sadly does happen. Be prepared to back up your data. Have means of backing up your data available.

____________________________________________________

Please download Rootkit Unhooker from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.
Link 1 (.exe file)

  • Click the Report tab, then click Scan.
  • Check Drivers, Stealth Code, and uncheck the rest.
