Hi there! So here's my story: Meet Bob. Bob is a Compaq Presario, AMD Athelon 64, running Windows XP. Bob is old and cranky. We ran mbam on Bob (who had a fake virus alert malware) and Bob went crazy. The main user lost everything on the desktop and all users lost access to the internet. read more about it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic436819.html The original mbam logs are there and some other stuff one of your guys had me run: Security Check, FSS, MiniToolBox and GMER. In trying to fix Bob, Bob told me to run chkdsk \f and I did. Now bob is stuck in safe mode. After I ran and posted the stuff from the diagnostics I was told to run, I was told to follow the Prep Guide for Posting and then to post here. There is no cd emulation software on this computer. I downloaded DSS.scr (by the way, the link I was taken to off of the Prep guide post was no good) and it began to run but got stuck about 20 "#" into it's run. So no reports from it. I tried running GMER again (just for fun) and got this message: LoadDriver( "C:\DOCUME~1\Seilina\LOCALS~1\Temp\kwecrfob.sys" ) error 0xC000010E: Cannot create a stable subkey under a volatile parent key. Wow, hope that makes sense to you! So, I click OK and get taken to the GMER main screen. The only things I can check/uncheck are: Services, Registry, Files, and ADS. I told it to check the main drive only and then clicked scan. I got this for my trouble:

GMER - http://www.gmer.net

---- EOF - GMER 1.0.15 ----

Now the big question: Did I kill Bob? Is there a reasonably simple(ish) fix to this, or should I reformat and reinstall? We have already gotten all the files off that are needed. Thanks!

This can be fixed but it it may be quicker and easier to reformat as there is a nasty rootkit on board, that's up to you.

Please run the following: It will run from safe mode, but it will not be able to install the recovery console as there is no connection, continue saying "OK" through that part.

Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
Link 1
Link 2

VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

  • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image

  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.


re-run the farbar service scanner

type the following into the search window


now press the "search files" button > post the resulting log
