Infected with Alureon and probably a whole lot more!

Hi there and thanks for your assistance! My wonderful, somewhat elderly parents who LOVE to play cards on their computer brought it by to me a few weeks ago to take a look at it because it kept shutting down. After several questions, I have discovered that they received the wonderful Internet Security 2010 virus, believe it or not my parents almost gave their credit card as well. Sigh.

When I received the PC, all of their registry's were not working on their programs. Assuming that was caused by the virus. I put the PC in safemode and used a disk that I burned of MBAM. That seemed to have gotten me a bit further.

Anyhow, Ive ran all the suggestions on the site and then some. At one time their Mcafee did detect the Alureon virus. However, I cannot get it to detect it at this time. Sometimes their AV shows that there hasnt been a check in over 30 days, and sometimes it says its not needed. Im not sure why it does that.

I am unable to upgrade them to SP3 either. It wont allow me to install it, I get the awful blue screen when I do. And they have these funky toolbars on their IE that I have been trying to get rid of. When I look in their history after I have completely deleted it and reloaded IE, it shows a couple of websites - Im assuming its from the toolbar. However I cannot remove the toolbar.

They are on MSN dial up, I have it connected into my high speed internet. When I am on the high speed, it doesnt shut down on me however when I log onto dial up, it does. Their MSN window keeps popping up no matter how many times you close it.

When I ran SuperAntiSpyware, it detected a broken system file HKCR\.exe

I did run combofix, it was showing that another real time scanner was currently active, antivirus AVIRA Antivir PersonalEdition however I dont see that anywhere on their PC even if I was go into the control panel to remove the program, it isnt there. However the logs show it to be on the PC.

When I ran RootRepeal it gave me the error message of "could not read our index block" then it appeared to have scanned however when I attempted to save the log I got the following error "attempt to write to address:0x77d3f00". I then received the windows virutal memory being low message. Not sure if those two are in correlation or not.

When I ran MSN Spy Sweeper, (haha, told you I tried everything) it had found adware-adkubru hijack as well as 7 other tracking cookies.

MBAM, didnt find anything when I ran it again in safe mode as well as regular.

When I ran GMER, it scanned regularly however when it was complete I received a "work offline" message and lost all usage of my mouse and was not able to save it. The work offline message was interesting since I am working through high speed internet and the other PC's didnt get affected.

Im almost to the point of reinstalling windows to wipe it however my father enjoys his music and has spent endless hours downloading it onto his PC.

Here is the logs, hopefully someone can give me assistance in helping my poor parents PC.
Thanks a million!

Hello and thanks for the response. I have attempted to clean some of their computer up. Here is the information you have requested:

Please take note:

1.If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. Im unsure at this point, I would like someone to look at my logs to determine if Im all clear :)

2.If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system. I was able to create a log, I am running on XP SP3 32 bit

3.Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available. No, unfortunately I do not.

Looking at the logs, I have attempted without success in removing the AV Avira. It is showing that it is still enabled - however it is no where on my control panel to remove programs.

Hi Aprylle,

Welcome to BleepingComputer Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum. :welcome:
My name is sundavis, I will be helping you to deal with your Malware problems today.

Please uninstall the following antimalware programs via Add/Remove Programs for temporarily, it may interfere with our fix during the clean process.

Lavasoft Ad-Watch Live! Anti-Virus

After that, please go to this thread to download Avira Antivirus removal tool to clean the leftovers. One system should not install more than one antivirus program. It is advisable that you have ONLY one AntiVirus installed. After that, proceed the following:


  • Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.
  • Extract its contents to your desktop.
  • Once extracted, open the TDSSKiller folder and doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
  • If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
  • If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
  • It may ask you to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now
  • If no reboot is require, click on Report. A log file should appear. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
  • If a reboot is required, the report can also be found in your root directory, (usually C:\TDSSKiller folder). Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.


  • Please download OTL and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  • Under the Standard Registry box change it to All
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste the following bolded text:

    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\*.
    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\*.exe /s
    %APPDATA%\*.exe /s
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    C:\program files\common files\data\* /s
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /90

  • Click the "Quick Scan" button.
  • The scan should take just a few minutes.
  • OTListIt.txt <-- Will be opened and Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized
  • Copy and paste both logs back here in your next reply.


Go to Start > Run and copy/paste the following bolded text into the Run box and click OK:


A ComboFix text file should open. Please post the contents of that file in your next reply.

In your next reply, please post back:

2.ComboFix log
3.OTListIt.txt and Extra.txt

Tell me what symptoms you're still experiencing now.

Hi there Sundavis! Thank you so much for the response and the much needed help!

Looking under the control panel under add/remove programs - these 2 programs are not available there.
  • SpybotSD
  • Lavasoft Ad-Watch Live! Anti-Virus

Is there any other method that I can remove these? Should I continue on or should I attempt to remove these another method? I agree completely with you on only running one AV, however I have not been successful on removing the other AV programs.

Thanks so much for all of your help!

Hi there!

Here is the logs that you have requested. I must have deleted the combofix log from when I first started having problems, so I have re-ran it this afternoon. Hopefully that is ok.

I still for the life of me cannot remove that AV - any suggestions on how to remove that? My concern is that it is impacting their current AV and could put their computer at risk.

Thank you for looking at my logs. I greatly appreciate all of your help.

Hi Aprylle,

Go into the Control Panel (Classic View) and double-click the Java Icon. (looks like a coffee cup)

On the Update tab, click on Update Now buttons. When done, press Apply and OK the button.


  • Go into the Control Panel (Classic View) and double-click the Java Icon. (looks like a coffee cup)
  • On the General tab, under Temporary Internet Files, click the Settings button.
  • Next, click on the Delete Files button
  • There are two options in the window to clear the cache - Leave both Checked

    Applications and Applets
    Trace and Log Files
  • Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window
  • Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
  • Click OK to leave the Temporary Files Window
  • Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.


  • If you already have Combofix, please delete that copy and download it again as it's being updated regularly.
  • Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:
  • Close any open browsers
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Go to Here for your reference.
  • Please open Notepad (Start -> Run -> type notepad in the Open field -> OK) and copy and paste the text inside the code box below:
AV: Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic *Enabled/Outdated* {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}

Referring to the screenshot above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.
ComboFix will now run a scan on your system. It may reboot your system when it finishes. This is normal.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you at "C:\ComboFix.txt". Copy and paste the contents of the log in your next reply.

Hi there -

Here is the logs that you have requested. As far as how the computer is running, it seems to be running smooth, although I havent attempted to connect it with MSN dial up. Thats when they initially noticed something was wrong with it, when the pc kept rebooting. So I will attach these logs and then attempt to utilize dial up to see if it creates the same problem.

Thank you for all of your help, I will repost after I attempt dial up.

Looks better. Do you have any remaining issues? Let me know if you still need assistance. :thumbup2:

It does look a bit better, however when I attempted to connect via dial up through msn, it reboots still. I am able to connect to msn to retrieve the dial up numbers, however when I attempt to connect to the internet, it reboots without any warning. I uninstalled MSN and reinstalled it thinking maybe it was a software issue, and that didnt resolve it either. Do you think this could be a hardware issue instead of a malware issue now?

Thanks for your assistance,

Also, I did notice that their CPU usage is pretty high - its currently utilizing 60% & 750mb - and it is running 51 processes. The CPU usage goes from 50% to 100% and back down again without me doing anything. Could it be that there is still something going on?

I think I figured it out.... the windows firewall was still enabled when signing onto MSN, I disabled it since they have a firewall with McAfee and now I can get online without the sytem rebooting. What are your thoughts?

Hi Aprylle,

I think I figured it out...

Glad to hear it has been sorted. MSN Messenger requires full access through your Personal Firewall so that it can sign in and for other features such as Audio / Video to work. For more info: Here.

Now, your system appears to be clear of malware. :thumbsup: If you have no remaining issues on your pc, lets do some tidy up and we can send you on your way.


Click START then RUN
Now copy/paste ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK.
Note the space between the X and the /Uninstall, it needs to be there.

Posted Image

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.


Start OTL from your desktop.
  • Double click OTL and let it run
  • Then Click the Cleanup button.
  • You will get a prompt saying "Being Cleanup Process". Please select Yes.
  • Restart your computer when prompted.

Now that your system is clean, kindly follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

  • Update your antivirus programs

    Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system. You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
    Secunia Software Inspector
    F-secure Health Check

  • Update all programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

  • Backup your valid registry -ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to store a complete backup of your registry and restore if needed. Due to malware affects, a corrupt registry can prevent a system from booting. You're well advised to backup your valid registry while the system is clean now. For more info: Here and Here .

Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"
Read some information Here how to prevent Malware.

Glad to be of help. Safe surfing!!
