Posted 27 October 2013 - 12:02 AM

I've recently had an issue addressed in the 'Am I infected? What do I do?' forum that involves a suspicious advertisement tab randomly appearing on its own in Firefox once every few weeks. 
boopme had me run some additional scans (MiniToolBox, TDSSKiller, Adwcleaner, JRT, ESET, and Tweaking.com Windows Repair) to those I'd already done and looked over the logs. boopme found them to be fine and wondered if a faulty Firefox add-on might be responsible. 
User Bub12 had the same exact problem, and speculated in the thread that the cause isn't a local bug but a rogue Google ad. The ad appeared for me at least once while I was browsing Facebook, so perhaps a Facebook ad is to blame.
When I found no suspicious add-ons, boopme suggested I post in this forum to ensure there's nothing compromising on my machine locally.
Also, pages continue to often be slow to load or not load at all in Chrome, although this may be unrelated.
For my more detailed explanation of the problem and boopme's advice, here's the original thread: 
Here's my DDS.txt, and attach.txt is attached.
Thanks in advance.

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

I checked both your topics and found nothing suspicious in your logs.

I can only suggest one thing for now Remove Chrome using the Add/Remove Programs.
Restart the computer normally.

Reinstall Chrome.

If you want to keep your Bookmarks before proceeding, I suggest you save them.
When the new re-install is complete you can import your saved bookmarks.

Read these instructions before proceeding

Great news, thanks nasdaq. I've also uninstalled Chrome and apart from a couple of pages not loading, it's performing much better.


Thanks for taking the time.

Hope this page will help.

Page content doesn't display correctly

One last scan.

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.

Thanks nasdaq. Chrome is behaving well so far, but I'll have that page on standby to troubleshoot any non-loading pages as they arise.


Here's my checkup,txt. I assume I should update Adobe Reader?

Get the latest version of the Adobe Reader.
Before your download I suggest you unckeck the box on the top right "Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional" this is not required if you are not a McAfee subscriber. While the installation is in progress you can also deny the installation of any other programs that may be suggested.

When installed remove your old version of the Reader using the Add/Remove Programs applet if present.

If all is well:

Please consider using these ideas to help secure your computer. While there is no way to guarantee safety when you use a computer, these steps will make it much less likely that you will need to endure another infection. While we really like to help people, we would rather help you protect yourself so that you won't need that help in the future.

Please either enable Automatic Updates under Start -> Control Panel -> Automatic Updates or get into the habit of checking Windows Update regularly. They usually have security updates every month. You can set Windows to notify you of Updates so that you can choose, but only do this if you believe you are able to understand which ones are needed. This is a crucial security measure.

Having an effective antivirus is a must for everyone.
In addition to many excellent commercial products there are plenty of good free antivirus programs available. I can recommend:

If you are satisfied with your current protection programs you can ignore the instructions on Antivirus or Firewall listed below.In addition to an antivirus I recommend using a firewall. A software firewall is a software program that helps screen out hackers, viruses, and worms that try to reach your computer over the Internet. I can recommend one of the following free products:Please note: Many installer offer third-party downloads that are installed automatically when you do not uncheck certain checkboxes. While most of the time not being malicious you usually do not want these on your computer. Be careful during the installation process and you will avoid seeing tons of new unwanted toolbars in your favorite web browser.

Please consider installing and running some of the following programs; they are either free or have free versions of commercial programs:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM)
The free version of MBAM can be used to scan the system for traces of malware. Scanning your system regularly will make it harder for malware to reside on your system.
A tutorial on using MBAM can be found here.
Please Note: Only the paid for version has real time capabilities.

A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent malware from ever installing on your computer may be found here.

Please keep these programs up-to-date and run them whenever you suspect a problem to prevent malware problems. A number of programs have resident protection and it is a good idea to run the resident protection of one of each type of program to maintain protection. However, it is important to run only one resident program of each type since they can conflict and become less effective. That means only one antivirus, firewall and scanning anti-spyware program at a time. Passive protectors, like SpywareBlaster can be run with any of them.

Note that there are a lot of rogue programs out there that want to scare you into giving them your money and some malware actually claims to be security programs. If you get a popup for a security program that you did not install yourself, do NOT click on it and ask for help immediately. It is very important to run an antivirus and firewall, but you can't always rely on reviews and ads for information. Ask in a security forum that you trust if you are not sure. If you are unsure and looking for anti-spyware programs, you can find out if it is a rogue here:A similar category of programs is now called "scareware." Scareware programs are active infections that will pop-up on your computer and tell you that you are infected. If you look closely, it will usually have a name that looks like it might be legitimate, but it is NOT one of the programs you installed. It tells you to click and install it right away. If you click on any part of it, including the 'X' to close it, you may actually help it infect your computer further. Keeping protection updated and running resident protection can help prevent these infections. If it happens anyway, get offline as quickly as you can. Pull the internet connection cable or shut down the computer if you have to. Contact someone to help by using another computer if possible. These programs are also sometimes called 'rogues', but they are different than the older version of rogues mentioned above.

Please keep your programs up to date. This applies to Java, Adobe Flashplayer, Adobe Reader and your Internet Browsers in particular. Vulnerabilities in these programs are often exploited in order to install malware on your PC. Visiting a prepared web page suffices to infect your system.

In general Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome are considered to be more secure than Internet Explorer. In addition there are many useful addons that can protect you from possible risks:
  • WOT will warn you when you try to visit sites with poor reputation. The reputation is based on user ratings and is usually very accurate.
  • Script Blocker can help blocking many attempts to infect your system via malicious websites by only allowing scripts at sites you trust.
  • NoScript is a popular Firefox addon,
  • ScriptNo a popular Google Chrome addon.
For much more useful information, please also read Tony Klein's excellent article: How did I get infected in the first place

Hopefully these steps will help to keep you error free. If you run into more difficulty, we will certainly do what we can to help.

Thanks for the thorough set of tips, nasdaq. Automatic updates are already set up, but I've updated Adobe Reader and added NoScript and ScriptNo, and I plan to install SpywareBlaster. I already have avast and have Windows Firewall enabled. Do you recommend a separate firewall program instead though?

Your call.

The paid version of avast comes with it's firewall.
I like it when both the AV and Firewall comes from the same family.
If somethings goes wrong with the application I have only one Company to check with.
