OK, so let me start with an apology. I was recommended by a friend to try combofix when I told him of my malware problems. Though he told me it was "rougher" than other licensed programs, he didn't stress the professional supervision part & made it seem a bit easier than I have found. I went rogue and started it a bit prematurely. I am running XP on a Compaq presario V2000 laptop. Unfortunately, I did not read the preparation guide for malware removal, and so I didn't run a DDS or create a GMER log. I'll try to give as much info as possible. I do know that I have a rootkit problem, and the system has been overloading to the point where it runs many duplicate processes and may take 10-15 min to even follow one command. This also affected my search toolbar with wacky redirections to unknown sites. It also went in and stopped me from being able to open many programs, especially protection programs. I ran Malwarebytes from safe mode & it took 13 1/2 hours to scan.

So, I turned off my anti-viruses and ran combofix. (I was not cool with AVG 2011 only giving me a 15 min window to shut it down, given that it is running so slowly that doesn't allow for much progress). Here is exactly what happened. I successfully installed it, successfully installed the windows recovery console, and here is what happened next: on the segment where it begins to scan & reads "scanning for infected files......scan times may easily double", it never seemed to get to the actual scanning process (at least not the part where it tracks stages). I received a message telling me that I had a rootkit and that my system needed to restart. The problem is that it froze during the blue "shutting down windows" screen, for several hours. I finally decided to shut the computer down manually and attempt a restart to get combofix moving again. Upon a standard restart, combofix opened back up but remained on the blue "combofix is preparing to run" screen and never started up. I chose to try restarting the computer using the new recovery console option. The problem is that I am an infant when it comes to ms-dos and might as well be reading another language. So I did logon to c:\windows, but I am completely clueless from here on out. Please help!

In summary, my questions are:
How do I continue running combofix / starting my computer again?
Do I need to somehow get you a DDS or GMER log to proceed (I don't know how to from this point)?
Do I need to backtrack somehow from combofix or do a restore of some sort? How then?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

OK, I restarted computer again, told it to start normal, and transferred DDS and GMER programs downloaded from another computer to run. Here are the results. Thanks so much for helping.

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/410870 and follow the instructions there. If you no longer 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.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

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!
