Hi Guys,

I've got a virus that does the following

Symptoms:
- redirects google searches to websites like www.aloneinthedark.com and other random fake search engine sites.
- iexplore is always open in the background
- a music or a video will play occasionally / randomly if i don't end the "iexplore" process
- my start menu, even though it has folders, when I click on a folder e.g. "Microsoft Office" it says its empty. (Even thought it is there in program files)
- in msconfig.exe - there's an unknown startup item LDGgl.exe

What I've tried to do:
- safe mode with Malware Bytes & Super anti spyware

alas, most of it goes away..but the following symptons above still exist!

any help is appreciated,

Thanks,

question before you removed the malware with malewarebytes and superantispyware - was it an app trying to force you to buy a product to fix your computer?

if it was do you remember the name?

All I remember is that it ran a fake virus scan.

I never let the scan finish, but I'm guessing it would've forced me to buy the product eventually.

Sorry, I can't remember the exact name of it...but I remember it sounding very 'generic'

why do you ask?

the reason i ask all of these fake apps have the same common factor to hold your pc hostage till you pay or get it removed. even though they all have that incommon, they all do it differently.

some use rootkit, some use trojans, some put a proxy script from getting online, and some hide all your files.

to get a better understand of what you have and what action take - the name of the ransom app could help.



ok moving on.....

sides malwarebytes and superantispyware what else have you done to get your pc back?

i ask this to make sure we don't repeat the things you may have done to further help out.

The only other thing i've done is used "unhide" to get my icons back as the virus made them all hidden.

Other than that, nothing else.

To add to the above, can you post your logs from the scans you did that showed infections?

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic403458.html 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 MRT 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 MRT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
