I have logged a Topic in "Am I Infected"and have been asked to run steps 6 onward in the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help" and post the results here. Below is the details of my problem followed by the logs that were created by GMER etc.

My bank called me a few days ago to advise me of an unauthorised withdrawal from our bank account. They have locked our online banking until I notify them that all is OK with our PC. I have scanned with Symantec Endpoint Protection (V11) and also Malwarebytes. Neither application has picked up any problems.

I think I have realised when the possible keylogger might have been installed. I received an email from my sister. It had no subject and just contained a link. Unfortunately I have clicked on the link (something about vancouver bankruptcy)and I've sinced found out her email account was hijacked and thus sending these emails. Yes I know very silly !!!!

I tried accessing the symantec website to see if I could find anymore info regarding keylogging and keep getting the following;

Google error 404. That's an error

The requested URL /norton/ps/1up_ca_en_360t1.html? etc etc etc and then at the end says "That's all we know." and there is a graphic of a broken robot. I was able to access the symantec webpage from my smartphone at the same time so confirmed it wasn't an issue with the site.

Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I am running XP Pro SP3 with Internet Explorer 8. Please let me know if you require anymore information regarding my system.

Hi and welcome to the Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum,

I am thcbytes and I am here to help you!

I ask that you refrain from running tools other than those I suggest to you while I am cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Please perform all steps in the order received and do not proceed if you need clarification.

Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems please stop and tell me about it. When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide you with detailed suggestions for prevention.

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Watch this topic. Click on this then choose Immediate E-Mail notification and then Proceed and you will be advised when I respond to your topic by email.

After 5 days if your topic is not replied I we assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.

I would also like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please be courteous and appreciative for the assistance provided!

Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. Your computer fix will be based on the current condition of your computer! Any changes might delay my ability to help you.


Please download ComboFix:

Save it 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. Please refer to this link for instructions.

  • Double click it & 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:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply

A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix on your own.
This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.
ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a forum helper

I do not accept personal donations for assistance provided. I would ask that you instead consider donating the greatest gift - Organ Donation. Your organs are of no use to you when your gone. You will save a life that would otherwise be lost!
