First off, Hello! I am grateful you are taking the time to look into this as i've spent over 3 days trying to figure this out to no avail :(

Background: Was on a tv-links webpage trying to watch a show on megavideo through Firefox browser, when a fake AV security software was installed on my computer. I got rid of it, however my system has been slow ever since. So i did the following:

Windows XP, SP3. MSI WIND netbook computer.
Scanned with malewarebytes, Nothing
Scanned with AVG, Nothing
Scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials, Nothing
Scanned with Avast, Nothing.

Randomly my task manager says a process called "IEXPLORE.EXE" takes up my cpu and memory like no other. When i end the task, everything resumes, but it comes back within a few minutes. I am currently using "process blocker" to stop this, however i still get re-directs on webpages randomly.

I did a format recovery of the OS three times, yet the problem is re-occuring. Below is my HIJACK THIS log. I would be grateful if someone could give me some pointers as to how to protect myself from another browser attack, that is stop random software from being installed on my computer.

Thanks again,
-ZabijeCie

Hello and Welcome to the forums!

My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

Somethings to remember while we are working together.

  • Do not run any other tool untill instructed to do so!
  • Please Do not Attach logs or put in code boxes.
  • Tell me about any problems that have occurred during the fix.
  • Tell me of any other symptoms you may be having as these can help also.
  • Do not run anything while running a fix.

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.

Click on the Watch Topic Button and select Immediate Notification and click on proceed, this will help you to get notified faster when I have replied and make the cleaning process faster.

In order for me to see the status of the infection I will need a new set of logs to start with.

Please print out or make a copy in notpad of any instructions given, as sometimes it is necessary to go offline and you will lose access to them.

DeFogger:

  • Please download DeFogger to your desktop.

    Double click DeFogger to run the tool.
  • The application window will appear
  • Click the Disable button to disable your CD Emulation drivers
  • Click Yes to continue
  • A 'Finished!' message will appear
  • Click OK
  • DeFogger may ask you to reboot the machine, if it does - click OK
Do not re-enable these drivers until otherwise instructed.

Download DDS:

  • Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the links below and save it to your desktop:

    Posted Image
    Download DDS and save it to your desktop

    Link1
    Link2
    Link3

    Please disable any anti-malware program that will block scripts from running before running DDS.

    • Double-Click on dds.scr and a command window will appear. This is normal.
    • Shortly after two logs will appear:
    • DDS.txt
    • Attach.txt
  • A window will open instructing you save & post the logs
  • Save the logs to a convenient place such as your desktop
  • Copy the contents of both logs & post in your next reply

information and logs:

  • In your next post I need the following

  • .logs from DDS
  • let me know of any problems you may have had
