Greetings:

I have been a long-time troll of BleepingComputer and have used the information contained herein to fix countless PC issues... so thanks in advance for all the hard work and research you all put in to help out the community!

I have a 32-bit XP SP3 laptop that has a Google redirect virus that I have been struggling to remove for over a week now. I was able to remove parts of the virus (detected as a Win32/FakeSysdef trojan by Avira Antivir Rescue CD), which was initially presenting itself as a so-called "HDDDefragmenter" program to fixed supposed problems with the (laughable) "Hard Drive Rotational Speed" and reported, verified fake, Delayed Write Failed HDD errors. Thinking this was yet another relatively easy problem to fix, I started removing the virus using various tools mentioned in relation to the virus.

I removed most of the issues; one remaining problem is a seemingly counterfeit instance of iexplore.exe that runs itself even in Safe Mode without my direction, as well as a Google search redirect. The instance of IE runs hidden and slowly builds in RAM usage until it finally throws some sort of exception and closes, at which point Windows prompts me to send an error report. I have fiddled around with multiple rescue disks with little success, and am now in need of direct help from the professionals.

I am aware of the advice you all provide regarding running tools, etc., without proper instruction and I did not take the advice. Nothing that I ran has caused any problems with booting or the Windows installation, so I feel as if I will stop while I still have an operating OS. I will go through as many of the steps (that I remember) taken so far, if desired.

I appreciate your assistance!

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.

No one is ignored here.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:

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

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
