Posted 27 May 2011 - 03:41 PM

So yesterday my laptop got infected with Win 7 Total Security 2011.

I followed the guide at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-win-7-internet-security-2011
except it did not help. Each step had its own problem and currently my PC seems to still be infected.

Here is what happened after i did each step:

1. I downloaded the FixNCR.reg file on an uninfected computer and transferred it to my infected laptop.
2. I ran FixNCR.reg in SAFE MODE and I was then able to use .exe files again, HOWEVER I still could not
access the internet in normal or safe mode.
3. Since I couldn't access the internet, I did the same thing as before. I downloaded and transferred the
eXplorer.exe file to my infected computer and ran it.
4. The only process that it reported stopping was my actual explorer.exe
5. After that I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. It said my Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware was 9 days out of date but i figure that shouldn't be that big of a deal.
6. After a full scan, it came up with 3 infected files. I removed all 3 files and restarted my computer.


Now when run my computer, Win 7 Total Security 2011 doesn't run anymore. However, I am still encountering my previous problems and MORE.

Current Problems:

1. Still can't access internet on Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
2. SOMETHING changed my Windows 7 appearance into Windows Classic.
3. My NORMAL start-up is acting as if its in safe mode. IE: I can't access the internet, I can't adjust screen brightness,
I can't adjust volume, I can't even see the network symbol in the bottom right hand corner.

Further Steps:

1. I manually looked up the listed registry problems, BUT none of them were there.
2. I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware again and the only problem that came up was the eXplorer.exe i had downloaded before.
3. I checked my task managed to see if the original malware was running, it was not.
4. I scanned with my McAfee On Demand Scan and it removed a few malware files. (I think)

Additional Info:

1. Under processes in the task manager, the malware was listed as grc.exe
2. At the very beginning when i tried to run any .exe files, it would either close them or give an error message and the grc.exe process would start up again.
3. Currently, my laptop does not seem to have the malware anymore (unless it is hiding). The only problem right now is that, even when I choose to start my laptop normally,
it still acts as if it is in SAFE MODE. (SAFE MODE without the black background and small resolution)

The previous guide also asked me to run a program called gmer.exe and save the report afterwards.
It told me to name the report as ark.txt and I have attached it as well.


Thanks ahead of time if anyone is able to help.

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!
  • In Windows Vista and Windows 7, all tools need to be started by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator!
  • 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.

____________________________________________________

Try these steps to get the internet connection back:

Check - Reset Proxy settings
Malware can alter your proxy settings. If altered, it can affect your ability to browse or download tools required for disinfection.

Internet Explorer Proxy settings:
  • Open Internet Explorer > click Tools > Internet Options > Connections tab.
  • Click the LAN Settings... button and uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN"
    or change the settings to the proxy you normally use if you previously reconfigured it.
  • Remove any unknown addresses from the Address box. 80 is the default Port so it does not have to be changed.
  • Click OK... then click OK again.
  • Close Internet Explorer and -restart- the computer.
  • An example of how to do this with screenshots can be found in steps 3-7 under the section Automated Removal Instructions... in this guide.

Firefox Proxy settings:
  • Open Firefox, click Tools > Options > Advanced and click the Network Tab.
  • Under the Connection section click on the Settings... button.
  • Under Configure Proxies to Access the Internet, check No proxy. This is the default option if you don't use a proxy.
  • Click OK... then click OK again.
  • Close Firefox and -restart- the computer.

For other browsers, please refer to How to configure browser proxy settings.


NEXT:



Make sure the following setting is set as it is supposed to be set:

  • Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Double click on Network Connections.
  • Right click on your default connection (usually Local Area Connection) and select Properties.
  • Select the General tab.
  • Double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    Under General tab:
    • Select "Obtain an IP address automatically".
    • Select "Obtain DNS server address automatically".
  • Click OK twice to save the settings.
  • Reboot if you had to change any setting.
