One rootkit program did though,,,,,,, with this string "detected NTDLL code modification:
ZwEnumerateKey 0 != 47, ZwQueryKey 0 != 19, ZwOpenKey 0 != 15, ZwClose 0 != 12, ZwEnumerateValueKey 0 != 16, ZwQueryValueKey 0 != 20, ZwOpenFile 0 != 48, ZwQueryDirectoryFile 0 != 50, ZwQuerySystemInformation 0 != 51Initialization error

courtesy of "catch me" and a Google search resulted in similar finding on this web site via url "http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic452713.html" and Gringo helped him out.

I a kinda thinking this a false positive but it seems catch me should run longer than 3 sec and have more to it than a pop up dos box ? I have attatched a hijack this log in which I had deffoger runing and had run security check BEFORE I ran hijack.

I appreciate your time and efforts

Other issues were constant BSOD's pointing to either Kenel issues or writing to memory handles that were invalid. I ran mmetest 86 with 0 errors. I also moved c: from Disc 0 to Disc 1 with MBR dos commands which all completed sucessfully.

No one is ignored here.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:

  • 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.

  • 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.

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!

Getting BSOD's from hell pointing to Kernel corruption and or page to non paged area. Both I realize can point to driver age. Who Crashed cannot id the driver causing the issue. I have reloaded Windows 7 64bit Home Premium for the 5 th time this month and changed out my RAM and went to an older graphics card hoping it would help the issue but still getting same issues. Also email scammers seem to have my email/IP pegged because regardless of the email filters I put in place they get thru and I am getting about 32 to 50 a day all from other completely separate IP's and ISP's I also temp replaced my Norton 360 with MS security essentials trying to narrow down the driver issue possibility.

Catch Me is still saying detected NTDLL code modification:
ZwEnumerateKey 0 != 47, ZwQueryKey 0 != 19, ZwOpenKey 0 != 15, ZwClose 0 != 12, ZwEnumerateValueKey 0 != 16, ZwQueryValueKey 0 != 20, ZwOpenFile 0 != 48, ZwQueryDirectoryFile 0 != 50, ZwQuerySystemInformation 0 != 51Initialization error

Attached is the DDS log no GMER log because I am running Windows 7 64 bit SP1

OK Everytime I try and run the aswMBR exe from the desktop as admin with the internet and firewall and VP disabled I got a BSOD with a message saying that a driver in the kernel stack has been caught trying to corrupt the system. That driver is of course aswmbr. I did a driver query , attached, and found 6 or 7 drivers dated 2006 associated with a Brother printer and or USB device but after trying to rundown what they were associated with it appears that they are Windows system files? When I found them on my machine however the dates on the drivers are not 2006 but 2009? So I deleted them and updated my Nvidia drivers for the MB and for the 8800 GTS GPU. SO far it's still running! I am getting ready to try and run the aswMBR exe again to see if it crashes.

For the moment just post the log from the TDSSKiller scan.

Run this one also.


Please download ComboFix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop. For information regarding this download, please visit this web page: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Link 1
Link 2


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

IMPORTANT....

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

3. Do not install any other programs until this if fixed.


How to : Disable Anti-virus and Firewall...
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt
Note:
Do not mouse click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

Note: If after running ComboFix you get this error message "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion." when attempting to run a program all you need to do is restart the computer to reset the registry.

Other issues were constant BSOD's pointing to either Kenel issues or writing to memory handles that were invalid. I ran mmetest 86 with 0 errors. I also moved c: from Disc 0 to Disc 1 with MBR dos commands which all completed sucessfully.


I do not know the impact of this move but I can say that the TDSKiller log is not as I had expected.

I can only suggest you start a new topic in the Windows 7 Forum
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum167.html

Someone with the BIOS experience may be able to help.

On a positive note the ComBofix log is can.

Good news. Lets continue.

Third party programs if not up to date can be an open door for an infection.

Please run this security check for my review.

Download Security Check by screen317 from here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
===

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Search.
  • A logfile will automatically open after the scan has finished.
  • Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Rn].txt as well - n is the order number.

Let me know what problem persists.
