I think I am still infected

First, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carlos and I am a brand-new member of bleepingcomputer.com (just registered 5 minutes ago). I use a Compaq laptop with 64-bit Windows 7 operating system. My computer skills only go so far as browsing the internet (google, youtube, etc) and setting up an e-mail account, so I am only just a teensy bit more knowledgeable than a guy who thinks dll is something you buy at the supermarket, so please be gentle with me.

Now, for the problem that brought me here. Last Sunday, 10/23/11, I got infected with the "Security Sphere 2012" virus. Following instructions I found on Google, I proceeded to do the following steps:
1. I restarted my computer in "safe mode with networking."
2. After allowing myself to view hidden files/folders in "folder options," I went into
My Computer/Local Disk C/Program Data and deleted all those files I thought associated with
this virus-- they looked like folders labeled with random letters and numbers.
Note: I did NOT delete a folder labeled "{44AFD825-9603-4521-9447-A6E1C5CA2F3D}" because it seemed to be
in my computer long before the viral attack (judging from the "date modified"). The folder
contains the files "HP Support Assistant.msi" and "0x0409.ini."
Another folder I did not delete was labeled "{93E26451-CD9A-43A5-A2FA-C42392EA4001}." When I open
this folder, I see another folder labeled "x64." When I open that folder, the followint files come up:
another folder, again labeled "x64" containing similar .dll and .sys files
Please tell me if I should have deleted these folders and all their contents. I thought they were
legit prograns, so I did not delete them.
3. After deleting the files, I proceeded to delete and replace my "hosts file" after running a .bat program which
I downloaded from bleepingcomputer.com, which allowed me to delete the infected hosts file.
4. I did a full scan using Malwarebytes on my drive c, which indentified several malware and trojans, which were quarantined and deleted.

After that, I thought the problem had been solved, but in the following days, I found indication that this virus, or at least remnants of it, are still infecting my computer. You see, I have active protection with Malwarebytes, and every now and then, it would give me messages saying it has "blocked access to a potentially malicious website [some IP address]," and that the source is "rundll32.exe". And an hour ago, it detected a file "wpbt0.dll exploit.drop" which
was quarantined and deleted.

Please help me! I think my computer is haunted!

P.S. I have downloaded "Hijack This," so if you need me to run it and post the results, just say the word.

Hi carlossamson2, :busy:

Welcome to BleepingComputer! :welcome:

I know it looks like a lot, but it's really just a lot of text asking for only 4 scans.

Once you've done these and posted the results in your next post, let me know how the computer is running.

Note: You may have to perform some or all of the following in Safe Mode With Networking, depending on if you have internet access while in the normal Windows environment.



Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.



Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you have a problem downloading, installing or getting SAS to run, try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.



Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Important!! When you save the mbam-setup file, rename it to something random (such as 123abc.exe) before beginning the download.
Malwarebytes may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet and double-click on the renamed file to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to this Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • Malwarebytes will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • Under the Scanner tab, make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • When finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box, then click the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked and then click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes when done.
Note: If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.



Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    Posted Image
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in safe mode.
-- If GMER crashes or keeps resulting in a BSODs, uncheck Devices on the right side before scanning



Remember, after posting the results of these scans, let me know how the computer is running.

Thank you for your prompt reply. Here is the "security check" text file contents, as requested:

Results of screen317's Security Check version 0.99.24
Windows 7 x64 (UAC is enabled)
Internet Explorer 9
Antivirus/Firewall Check:

Windows Firewall Enabled!
Norton Internet Security
WMI entry may not exist for antivirus; attempting automatic update.
Anti-malware/Other Utilities Check:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Java™ 6 Update 20
Out of date Java installed!
Process Check:
objlist.exe by Laurent

Norton ccSvcHst.exe
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware mbamservice.exe
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware mbamgui.exe
``````````End of Log````````````

I am still in the process of following the other steps you suggested. I will post the other requested texts in my next replies.

At this moment, my computer seems to be running normally. Before I received your reply, I ran a full scan with Malwarebytes, which uncovered four infections. Strangely, I could not locate the text file of this can in the Malwarebytes log, but I was
able to copy two of them by hand:
Vendor: Date: Category: Item

Trojan.SHarpro.PGen 11/1/2011 File c:\Users\Chuck\AppData\Local\Adobe\adobeupdate\Adobeup.dll

Trojan.SHarpro.PGen 11/1/2011 File

The other two infections were categorized as "registry values."

Again, thanks for your help!

I will run the Malwarebytes scan next and post the results promptly.

Again, my computer has been running normally, which is ironically worrysome, given the presence of the trojan.
It makes me wonder if there is such a thing as a "sleeper virus/spyware," one that remains dormant and unobstrusive
until. . . Anyway, the only unusual thing I notice happening is that whenever I start Windows, I receive a message
bubble saying "you have files waiting to be burned on disk. click on this bubble to see them," but when I click on
it, there's nothing. I have been backing up my files on DVDR, so that might explain it, but then again, perhaps it's a
trojan at work.

Click Start.

In the search bar type msconfig and hit Enter.

Click Startup(tab).

Take a screenshot(s) showing all items listed and attach the image(s) in your next post.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

The GMER scan did not find any "modifications" to my system. The gmer.log file is blank.

I was able to get a screenshot, but I am having trouble posting it to this forum. First, I couldn't see
how I could "open the full reply window." there is no "manage attachments" button either. There is a button
which says "insert image," but then it needs an http file. The jpeg screenshots are in my computer, not on
the web.

This section of the site doesn't allow for attachments, so you're going to have to list all the items with a check-mark next to them.

Either that, or upload the photos to another site and give links in your next post.

The best I could do is upload it to my facebook "public" image album. Here's a link:


Please tell me if you can see the images.

Click Start.

Click Computer.

Right-click your CD/DVD Drive.

Click "Delete Temporary Files."
Posted Image

Click Yes on the confirmation window.
Posted Image

Reboot your computer and see if everything is back to normal.


I was going to try a different approach with the screenshots you gave me, but decided to go this way instead.

But since we already have that information, we'll do something useful with it:

You can remove check-marks from all of the entries except:

- Synaptics Po...

- Norton Onlin...

- Malwarebyt...

Click OK.

Reboot the machine.

Let me know how everything is running.

My computer is running just fine now. I guess it was the removal of that trojan with the SUPERAntispyware that did it.
I have not received any notification from the Malwarebytes active protection advising it has "blocked access to a potentially malicious website."
Before, I was getting one every ten minutes.

That messge bubble saying Ihave files waiting to be burned on disk is gone now, too.

Thank you for all your help. If any further problems develop, I willl start a new thread.
