Well, here I am. In the midsts of the story I'm sure you've heard a million times.

Caught myself a nasty Win 7 virus resulting in all the classic symptoms. The Virus rewrote my registry so that everything pointed to it. Well, the combined effort of MBAM and Comodo securities (along with a few manual deletions) allowed me to rid myself of it. However it left me with a destroyed registry. I managed to import an entirely fresh registry from online (and I stress how difficult it was just GETTING online without a proper registry). And with that, everything was repaired and I thought no more into it.

However my little viral battle wasn't done yet! Suddenly an odd piece of malware kept popping up. However Comodo caught it and closed it everytime, still, this didn't stop it from constantly reappearing. After a few redirected google searches, I did some research and it became painfully apparent that I had been stricken with the ping.exe virus. Either the root of the Win 7 bug, or a left over result. The odd thing was, Comodo wouldn't allow it through, resulting in a thounsand 'prevented intrusions' on my comodo menu, and ping only popping up in processes once every so often.
Considering the way the ping.exe worked, I could have just left it alone. The redirected searches were livable, and comodo wouldn't allow it exist long enough to chew up more than 5% of my CPU at a time. However it agitated me so I set out to rid myself of it.
MBAM and Comodo each managed to scan something and delete it, but neither of these seemed to get rid of the aformentioned ping.exe. Growing frustrated at the failure of my 'all-star defense' I begin calling for outside reinforment. Some research, a little Kaspersky, an attempt with PC Doctor, and a few other things all managed to result in failure. Even manual deletion failed and I was growing rather sickened by the whole ordeal considering my ability to easily due away with malware up until that point.

Well, through out my research, I constantly saw the program Combofix brought up along with the many warnings of it's dangers. I sort of chalked it up to being like an atom bomb, destroying essentialy everything with out prejudice. I can't help but laugh now looking back at how true that metaphor really was!
Considering the warnings, I avoided it, and deemed it 'my last ditch effort before simply reformatting' which quickly became more and more likely as nothing I tried worked. So finally I decided to give it a try, with out ACTUALLY reading any information on it. I understand this was my mistake and sort of puts me on the deserving end of this whole fiasco, but you can't blame me for finally giving in and asking for help from the proffesionals I tried so hard to emulate.
And here I am! The effects of the ping.exe virus are completely gone (though oddly enough the physical file I had associated with the virus still remains... So either I was wrong or even the still living virus finds itself debilitated). But along with it went my entire registry, yet again! This time to a far worse degree however. Nothing short of windows explorer will open. Any and all programs from comodo to wordpad refuse to open much less operate. Even the remaining file I had imported to rewrite my registry the first time refuses to open! It was by some odd luck that I had managed to get online. Luckily for me the trick I had used to first time my registry had been wreaked worked once more! Simply going into favorites and clicking on one, IE would open. Note, these are the only files that reacted in any positive fashion as everthing else says the wonderful error of:

C:\(Original location of program being asked to run)
Illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion.

Followed by windows asking me if I'd like to remove the shortcut or file asking to use a 'no longer working program' and what not.
The fact is, windows explorer still works, and all of my personal files are still reachable. So backing up my system and reformatting is still ENTIRELY do-able and looking like my best bet considering combofix had failed (albiet far less worse than it had for some, it wasn't until after I used Combofix that I finally looked it up and realized just how 'prescription strength' it really was).
So here I am, trying one last thing primarily due to my extreme desire NOT to have to back anything up, as my method of 'backup' involves 'waterbucket' carring over 9 gigs of files on a 2 gig SD from one PC onto another...

Do I deserve help? No not really. It was my mistake by all accounts. But if I can avoid having to go so far as a complete reformat I will. Mainly cause I fear I may have losted my Windows 7 OS disc....

Notepad won't open, but with IE up, I can open a few text files the hard way. I feel these maybe helpful.

After the scan, Combofix left me with a beautiful report of everything it had destroyed:

It also left an interesting new folder called C:\Qoobox which included a BackEnv folder (which I can't enter) and a Quarantine folder which appears to hold some of the files that were deleted! It also as a snapshot@(current date).dat and a couple of text files that maybe useful.

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/433526 <<< 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!

Hello again!

I haven't heard from you in 5 days. Therefore, I am going to assume that you no longer need our help, and close this topic.

If you do still need help, please send a Private Message to any Moderator within the next five days. Be sure to include a link to your topic in your Private Message.

Thank you for using Bleeping Computer, and have a great day!
