Posted 29 July 2011 - 02:12 PM

Yesterday morning I noticed two "save file" dialogs in Firefox that had popped up overnight. Never tried to download anything (I canceled them) and noticed my Trend Micro icon was missing from the System Tray. Trying to start TM I would see the splash screen and then it would disappear.

I tried to fire up Process Explorer... I get "ACCESS DENIED" in a DOS box. If I rename procexp.exe to iexplore.exe I can run Process Explorer without any problems, but can't find any obvious malware.

Did a scan with TM in Safe Mode and it found a few instances of the "Katusha.W" virus, which I had it clean. Also used HitManPro 3.5 to remove some files.

Ran Combofix which said it found some kind of malware with the TCP/IP stack and apparently cleaned it. Internet still functions fine when I turn it on, though I am leaving it disabled until this infection can be cleared.

TDSSKiller found nothing.

Once back into regular XP mode, I tried TM but still would not start up nor would MBAM or ProcExp. Uninstalled TM and tried to reinstall but the installation got interrupted about halfway through, you may see evidence of this half-install in the logs.

Did some poking around and found a broken CATCHME driver in the Device Manager which is now removed (or at least it's no longer showing up).

I also tried manually stopping some services to see if I could correct the misbehavior, but again to no avail. Installed AVAST and ran a boot mode scan which found and quarantined some more files it deemed suspicious (Skype.exe and MIRC.exe amongst them), sorry can't remember the actual infection names (if any).

I'm one step away from reformatting and starting fresh but thought I would let the Pros take a stab at this one first. But if it's something like a boot sector virus (though I did check with the Avast MBR tool) then reformatting the partition will be futile.

Here is the DDS log, the ATTACH file from DDS is attached as a ZIP as well as ARK.TXT from GMER.

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/411943 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!

Hello again!

I haven't heard from you in 5 days. Therefore, I am going to assume that you no longer need our help, and close this topic.

If you do still need help, please send a Private Message to any Moderator within the next five days. Be sure to include a link to your topic in your Private Message.

Thank you for using Bleeping Computer, and have a great day!
