Attached File  desktop.ini   5.21KB   2 downloadsHi,

I have Windows 7. For the past 2 weeks I have barely been able to connect to the Internet. Hours and hours with Verizon (my provider) have been useless. They sent a new modem and talked me through every known problem with no results.

I came to this forum and found Ngynx info and I had been experiencing the same problem as many. I applied the solutions found in the forum(s) and in other forums. I no longer get a redirected webpage when I *can* connect. But I still have the problem of not being able to connect.

I downloaded PC Tools anti-malware doctor and each time I run a full scan (when the computer allows me) I find Trojan.Gen (high threat), Heur Engine.ZeroDay Threat (low threat) and Suspicious.Cloud 7L (low threat). All is repaired until they reappear again very soon after.

I followed advice on which anti-spyware, registry repair, and other fix-it programs and I run them very often. I can usually connect to the Internet intermittantly once I apply fix-it tools to flush dns and ipconfig release and restore. I have some logs from Combofix and Hijack This, but I don't know what to do with them. I don't know how to interpret the information.

I've tried to find exact program files and start-up items that are suspicious and I have been unable to. I've run Malware-something program and no malicious items ever come up, even when PC Tools (doctor) does find the trogan and the registry cleaner - Jet clean I found worked most effectively -- finds all kinds of stuff. I fix and restart, fix and restart.

My best chance of being able to connect (like now -- but who knows for how long, sometimes it is just a half minute) when I am in Safe Mode with Networking and have done all of the above a few times.

I don't think there is any problem with my modem, and Verizon cannot help. I called Microsoft, but they want me to buy a service package and without that they won't help me (they used to provide free online support). I don't trust the service pack because I bought one once before and it didn't solve any problems. (I forced them to refund my money.)

Also, my computer is very slow. I don't know which programs are causing this, or how to find viruses that the anti-virus tools do not pick up. Windows Essentials doesn't pick up anything. I have turned it off because I've been told not to run two programs like it at the same time (e.g. Microsoft Essentials Real Time ... something... and PC Tools, as they duplicate each other. I found PC Tools better (I think?)

Can somebody help me? I rely on the Internet for work and I need to have a steady connection. I am not computer tech saavy at all. Microsoft tech support used to "take over" my computer through some "reconnect with Ease" program, but they do not provide any of that kind of support anymore. The directions I've followed from this and other forums do not seem to get to the root of the problem. I need direction and some diagnosis -- please help if you can!

I've tried to attach logs in case they are helpful. :/ I don't know if I did it right. I can't get #1 to paste.

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/460713 <<< 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 should not bother creating a GMER log.

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!
