My troubles started last week. I was just minding my business, wasting time on the web (as usual.) Suddenly, my system hiccuped, and I got a popup from Vista Security 2012 telling me my computer was infected, and I needed to buy the full version so it could clean my system up. I'm familiar with rogue antispyware, so I did the sensible thing: I turned off my computer and went online on a seperate, uninfected computer to look for a solution. I followed the instructions on this very site (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-vista-security-2012) to remove the offending program, and everything seemed all right.

Then I booted my computer up again, and things looked OK. But I quickly noticed several abnormalities. The first thing I noticed was that my Firefox settings had seemingly been reset, as if I had installed a new update. I was also getting popups while surfing the web, MSE had seemingly disappeared, and I got the error message "TCP/IP Ping Command has stopped working." Further inspection revealed that while Ping.exe was running for no reason, the CPU use shot up to 100%. A scan of these forums shows that several others are experiencing the same symptoms.

I tried some other solutions. I went into safe mode, ran both rkill and tdsskiller, and did a full system scan with both MSE and Malware Bytes. These turned up nothing, and a reboot revealed that the problem was still there. I updated my definition files last night, and repeated the safe mode scan. This time, MSE turned up two infected files: "Exploit: Java/CVE-2011-3544.E" and "TrojanDropper:Win32/Sirefef.B". I told MSE to delete these files, and it began to... but the progress bar never filled up. After a few minutes, I got an error message telling me that MSE could not complete the action because it had timed out. Now the history says that the two files are deleted, but the problem is clearly not fixed.

An interesting note: My symptoms differ from the majority in that I do not get redirected while searching on Google. I have not noticed any problems with Google. However, I do get popups when I try to log in to the Something Awful forums. I don't get redirected or anything, I can browse just fine otherwise. I don't know if this has any significance, but I thought I should mention it because none of the other posts I read had this specific problem.

So, what should I do?

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 resource! To tell me this, please click on the following link and follow the instructions there.

CLICK THIS LINK >>> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/432336 <<< CLICK THIS LINK



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!

I'm glad to have gotten some form of response, even if it's from a bot. Unfortunately, I'm going out of town tomorrow, and will be unable to work on my computer for a week. I'll have to run DDS and GMER after I get back. I hope this won't be a problem.

Yes, I still want help. I was busy all week with work, and didn't have the time to do the scans. I'll post the DDS and GMER logs this afternoon.

EDIT: Windows BSOD while running DDS, and it's frozen while trying to reboot in safe mode. This is going to be fun. :(

Notes: The infected computer is not connected to any network. I'm using another computer to download files and post here, moving files between the two computers with a flash drive. The infected computer will not start in safe mode. I have to run it in normal mode, disconnected from the network for security purposes.

GMER log coming soon.

I've encountered a problem. I followed the instructions for running GMER, and it seems to work perfectly. Then it freezes up completely. I cannot click any buttons on the window. All I can do is use Task Manager to stop the process. It's not even using very much CPU or memory.

It's done this twice now, and both times it stopped as soon as it scanned the file "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib009". That's the file name that's frozen at the bottom of the window. A google search shows that this particular file seems to cause problems for IT professionals, but I don't have the technical knowledge to understand the posts about it.

So unless I or somebody else can figure something out, I cannot post a GMER log. :(

Hi,

gmer does freeze occasionally. What we do in those cases is usually switch to a different tool:

Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
  • Click the Scan button to start the scan
  • On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop and post it in your next reply.

I downloaded and ran aswMBR, and something strange happened. I got up to order take-out, and when I came back to the computer, I saw the "Windows is shutting down" screen. I didn't get a chance to tell it to save a log. I don't know why Windows decided to restart. I'll have to do another scan after dinner.

Hi,

enjoy dinner. You may not have to do another scan, but could find the log on your desktop called aswmbr.txt

Notes: The scan seemed to freeze at one point, because the "scanning [file name]" message remained unchanged for more than 10 minutes. However, I could still press buttons, so I made this log. The scan definitely found some bad files, so this log should be useful.

I chose not to do a separate post for this log because I didn't see any rules about editing posts. So I decided to play it safe. I'm currently running a full scan of the C:\ drive. I'll post it if/when it finishes.
