Hi,

I think I have been hit by some sort of redirecting virus, though it does not seem to be directly related to Google searches. I did a boot scan with Avast, which found the following files:

File C:\Users\Beth\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\62\60d9c47e-3d314daa is infected by Java:Agent-KN [Expl], Moved to chest
File C:\Users\Beth\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\62\60d9c47e-44ad26dd is infected by Java:Agent-KN [Expl], Moved to chest
File C:\Users\Beth\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\7\3c30cc87-4bf967da|>favort\siurele.class is infected by Java:Agent-HF [Expl], Moved to chest

I scanned with Eset's online scanner which reported the following:

C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-2482144443-452081402-2240631372-1000\$RCJQ64V.exe a variant of Win32/InstallCore.C application
C:\Users\Beth\AppData\Local\Temp\ICReinstall\cnet_HitmanPro35_x64_exe.exe a variant of Win32/InstallCore.C application
C:\Users\Beth\AppData\Local\Temp\is1598539481\zgInstaller.exe a variant of Win32/Toolbar.Zugo application
C:\Users\Beth\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\7\3c30cc87-4bf967da Java/TrojanDownloader.OpenStream.NBW trojan

I've also run Ad Aware and SuperAntiSpyware. Neither of those found anything. I disabled Java Plug-in 2 SSV Helper in the IE Add-ons. Not sure whether to turn it back on yet or not. I'm not even sure what it does. At this point, I seem to be able to browse without redirects, but I've not tested long, and the redirects seemed random to start with. I mainly want to be sure it is alright to let all the files be removed, specifically the following:

C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-2482144443-452081402-2240631372-1000\$RCJQ64V.exe

And, is there anything else I should test with, or should I just wait and see if I remain problem free? I am running Windows Vista 64, SP1 and IE8.

Thanks,
Beth

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

I'm going see what I can do in the guide, but apparently I am still being redirected and now I can't get into Control Panel. I also got a message when going to computer properties that "An unautorized change was made to Windows. You will no longer receive notification, including those about your license or activation. Use the link below to find out how to fix your system". I did not click it since I don't know whether Windows is giving it or the virus. Anyway, I'm going to see how many of the steps I can get through.

Can I ask one more question? Is it safe for me to back up an infected system?

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic422560.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :cherry:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
