Hello

I have this computer for about 5-6 years and till now, everything worked good. I have Windows XP and it is installed 5-6 years ago. Few days ago, when I put my USB flash in, some files automatically get copied on USB. I scaned it at my new computer and Kaspersky cleaned about 70 sality viruses. Can you help me, i read instructions 3 times :), and tried to do everything perfectly. I currently don't have antivirus, because my computer working much slower then...

I tried running DDS, and nothing happens when I double-click it. I tried few times, and nothing happens. I also restarted computer and it's still now working

I was able only to attach Gmer log...

UPDATE: From tonight my computer working even slower, I can't even play music normally, it lagging, when i switch to another program or folder...

I searched your forum, and downloaded DDS.com, and now I was able to produce logs

Here is the DDS log:

EDIT: The current average wait time to receive help is 14 days. ~Budapest

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I am HelpBot: an automated program designed to help the Bleeping Computer Staff better assist you!

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:

***************************************************

First, I need to know if you still need help! To tell me this, please click on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/409250 and follow the instructions there. If you do not still need help, this is all you need to do. If you do need help please continue below.

***************************************************

If you still need help, I would like you to post a Reply to this topic (click the "Add Reply" button in the lower right hand of this page). In that reply, please include the following information:

  • If you have not done so already, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
  • A new DDS and GMER log. For your convenience, you will find the instructions for generating these logs repeated at the bottom of this post.
    • Please do this even if you have previously posted logs for us.
    • If you were unable to produce the logs originally please try once more.
    • If you are unable to create a log please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
    • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
  • Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
  • Upon completing the above steps and posting a reply, another staff member will review your topic and do their best to resolve your issues.

Thank you for your patience, and again sorry for the delay.

***************************************************

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.

Information on A/V control HERE


We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit Scanner.

Please note that if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows you will not be able to run GMER and you may skip this step.

Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice


Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log


As I am just a silly little program running on the BleepingComputer.com servers, please do not send me private messages as I do not know how to read and reply to them! Thanks!

Thanks for responding, appreciate it...

First to ask something, computer I posted the log from, I carried to service for repair, my second computer is also infected with Worm.AutoIT...as Malware Bytes's Anti Malware indicates...

May I post the logs from second computer...because the first will be repaired in service?

Thanks again for response, I was patient, don't have more money to carry the second computer to service, so I asked if you can help me???

If you approve logs from second computer, I can post them in 2 days, I am busy currently!

Just to add, this site looks great, love it, found a lot interesting stuff here...only bad thing is that forum is busy all the time! :thumbup2:

hi Twin Headed Eagle,

May I post the logs from second computer...because the first will be repaired in service?

Go ahead and post the logs from the second machine.

I currently don't have antivirus, because my computer working much slower then.

I wouldnt be without AV. Some are bigger resource hogs than others. I can suggest one that is light on resources and free also.

If you yourself didnt install these two below and its your machine- then you should uninstall them via the add/remove programs panel. Cain and able can be used to recover passwords.

Cain & Abel v4.9.36
WinPcap 4.1.1

Dont see a resident antivirus installed. I dont know how long you have been with out one. You should do a online scan here:

ESET online scanner:

http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

Use Internet Explorer

check "YES" to accept terms

click start button

allow the ActiveX component to install

click the start button. the Scanner will update.

check both "Remove found threats" and "Scan archives" Leave the defaults checked under Advanced settings

click scan. When it completes click "List found threats"

click "Export to text file.." and save it to your desktop. Post the saved log.

Click "back" and "finish"


Then after the online scan get a antivirus installed on your machine. If your worried about it being a resource hog then try Panda cloud here

Hello,

I rarely use this computer, it is used mostly by my brother, so he don't ask me what to do, and what to install, call me only when gets into trouble :D

I'll uninstall Cain&Abel and Win Cap...

Question, this computer has slow internet, does eset online scanner download and install updates, and then scans offline, or fully scans online - this can take forever!

Thanks for your time and help :)

Dial up unfortunatelly! But doesn't matter, i'll download the database? Or may I somehow download it on another computer, and transfer it on this infected?

I dont think thats possible. the activeX initializes and then the download starts. I dont know if you have the salty virus or not but if you do it attaches itself to different file extensions and can spread to another machinse via usb flash drives so transferring files between machines is risky assuming you have the virus.

I guess any AV database is going to be a slow download via dialup. You might as well get one of the free ones (AVG, Avast, Avira, Security Essentials) so you will have it on your machine. Of course you would have to update occasionally. If its really a resource hog you could disable it from running all the time and just use it as a on demand scanner. If its disabled you wont have any of its real time protection features. A updated on demand AV would be better than no AV.

Okay, thanks for great speech...

This computer has dial up, and I will install Microsoft Security Essentials, and then download database on another computer to update this...
Is it enough once at week to update MSE?
MSE update is not big everyday, but for first time it downloads about 100mb!

Also second computer i carried to service has sality, don't think this one has!

No more questions?

Will do ESET scan ASAP!

Thanks again for helping...

Sounds good. Once a week update from MSE should be enough. Downloads on dial up can be pretty painful. You might try a download manager if you dont have one, makes it easier.

Hi, just to let you know, I am currently unable to run the ESET, i have some friends at home staying for few days, so I packed the computer into box, to free the room for them to sleep :)
Thank you so much for being patient with me! Hope I am not causing problems slowing you... I don't know much about this you're instructing to me, so I needed to ask you :) few times! Thank you again!

With regards
