I want to thank you in advance for reading this. You guys are truly lifesavers.

About four days ago my presario laptop (Vista) was infected with multiple trojans which appear to be designed to exploit and redirect. It began with what seemed your typical fake Vista 12 Security System warning. It popped up and blocked most .exe files but still allowed access to the web. I ran both Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and my Microsoft Security Essentials which appeared to take care of the rogue security system.

However, about a day later my laptop began randomly (about every hour or so) opening up an entirely new browser window with about 15 tabs all being redirected to multiple different sites. Further, sometimes when I am clicking a new individual tab will pop open in my browser. What's worse, is my gmail account was compromised from an IP address located somewhere in Romania. Then, I noticed new malware seemed to be occupying my laptop on a regular basis, including the following items detected by Microsoft Security Essentials:

-Rogue:Win32/Winwebsec - severe threat
-Trojan:JS/Redirector.HQ - severe threat
-TrojanDownloader: Java/OpenConnection - Severe threat

I have tried killing the program using multiple programs
-Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (finds things)
-CC Cleaner (cleared registry)
-SUPERantispyware
-Spybot Search & Destroy (finds things)
-Microsoft Security Essentials (finds things and blocks things)

Currently, my firewall is disabled and I am unable to reactivate it due to warnings such as a "problem has been encountered." Worst of all, GMER indicates I have rootkit activity which may be compromising my entire system. I will be operating off-line for the next few days until I diagnose whether my laptop is salvageable. Below is my log and attached the two requested files from my DDS and GMER analyses. Thank you so much for any assistance or advice you can offer.

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.
  • Do not run any other tool untill instructed to do so!


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.

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.

Run Combofix:

You may be asked to install or update the Recovery Console (Win XP Only) if this happens please allow it to do so (you will need to be connected to the internet for this)

Before you run Combofix I will need you to turn off any security software you have running, If you do not know how to do this you can find out >here< or >here<

Combofix may need to reboot your computer more than once to do its job this is normal.

You can download Combofix from one of these links.
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
1. Close any open browsers or any other programs that are open.
2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a report for you.

Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

Note 2: If you recieve an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registery key that has been marked for deletion." Please restart the computer

"information and logs"

  • In your next post I need the following
  • Log from Combofix
  • let me know of any problems you may have had
  • How is the computer doing now?

Thank you very much for your expedient response Gringo. As of today, however, I decided to go ahead and reformat my computer. I believe I had already eradicated the infection, but didn't want to take any further chances. I will no longer require assistance. Thanks again.
