Hi folks, I accidently clicked on a cleverly disguised dodgy link and installed bandoo and all its associated malware.

As I understand it, this nasty little virus hides itself in various locations on your C drive?

I use Avast, malware bytes and spy bot search and destroy; each have failed to produce a result.

I have also removed the associated plugins from the browser itself.

Each time I attempt to fix this file:

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [!SearchquFFHP] C:\WINDOWS\system32\RUNDLL32.EXE C:\DOCUME~1\Gareth\LOCALS~1\Temp\INSTAL~1.DLL,_SetFirefoxHP http://www.searchqu.com/406

It is removed only to reappear when I restart the machine a re-run the HJT report.

Here is the full hijack this report:

Hi,

Each time I attempt to fix this file:

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [!SearchquFFHP] C:\WINDOWS\system32\RUNDLL32.EXE C:\DOCUME~1\Gareth\LOCALS~1\Temp\INSTAL~1.DLL,_SetFirefoxHP http://www.searchqu.com/406

It is removed only to reappear when I restart the machine a re-run the HJT report.


This is because you have Teatimer running in the background. It makes changes to your system (registry related, especially run keys) back undone as it sees the change made by you (deleting the value) also as a malicious attempt.

So, I suggest that you disable teatimer for now
When everything is done and you made the changes you want, you can enable it again.
If teatimer gives you a warning afterwards that some changes were made, allow this instead of blocking it.
How to disable TeaTimer <== click me for instructions.

After you disabled Teatimer, download ResetTeaTimer.exe to your desktop.
Then run ResetTeaTimer.exe. This will clear the "Teatimers cache"
This will only take a few seconds.
