I've just got an unknown malware on my Windows Vista Ultimate Desktop - have spent the past few hours trying to remove it to no avail. Have used Malwarebytes' (used in both safe and normal mode) which removed some trojans and cookies but this malware is still continuing so I'm assuming they didn't detect it.

It keeps giving me several popups:

'Internal conflict alert! Internal software conflict detected! Some application tries to get access to system kernel (such behavior is typical to Spyware/Malware). It may cause crash of your computer.'

'Your computer is infected with Spyware! Detected malicious programs can damage your computer and compromise your privacy. It is strongly recommended to remove them immediately.'

Kind of seems similar to one of the ANG Antivirus malwares but not the same and my computer hasn't detected ANG when I've searched for it. Granted I might not have searched hard enough or it might be under a different name.

The weird thing is that it isn't trying to get me to buy anything and when I click the notifications it doesn't open a webpage or anything. (Yet.) But it's really driving me crazy with frequent pop-ups and the worry of what it might do next, please someone help!?

I have attempted to open Task Manager but when I click on the 'processes' tap to attempt to cease the action of the malware it closes the task manager right away. Also note if I try and run MalwareBytes the second it starts actually scanning it shuts down every time. Running the 'Rkill' program kills the malware for a brief second but not long enough to try and do anything.

I have attempted to acquire the logs requested in the 'preparation guide' but upon opening both programs they simply shut down immediately without giving me any type of log (similar to task manager and malwarebytes scanning).

Any suggestions on what to do next would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I am HelpBot: an automated program designed to help the Bleeping Computer Staff better assist you! This message contains very important information, so please read through all of it before doing anything.

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:

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

Posted Image In order to continue receiving help at BleepingComputer.com, YOU MUST tell me if you still need help or if your issue has already been resolved on your own or through another resouce! To tell me this, please click on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/411786 and follow the instructions there. If you no longer need help, then all you needed to do was the previous instructions of telling me so. You can skip the rest of this post. If you do need help please continue with Step 2 below.

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

Posted Image 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!
