  I may have a similar problem to the person who posted http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/545472/fake-google-chrome-browserexe-processes/

  This seems to be a very new thing, because a Google search for it brings up mostly posts from this month, the only practical information about it is on this site, and standard anti-virus software seems to miss it entirely.

   This all started when I was browsing some sites about health food or exercise.  Suddenly, I was getting messages from Windows asking my permission to run regsrvr to register some dll, and I kept saying no, but it would come back up.  In the details, it said it was coming from some executable named by a really long random-looking string beginning with an X.

  There were a bunch of copies of that process in my task manager, taking up a lot of memory and CPU, and every time I tried to force-quit them, more appeared.  They show up in the task manager as Chrome, but the name of the process was this long string beginning with an X. It was an exe file under a strange folder within appdata/locallow/Adobe.

   I ran a quick scan with Windows Security Essentials, and also ran a custom scan of locallow, but it didn't find anything it thought was suspicious.

   I wanted to get back up and able to do stuff, so I rebooted in safe mode, reset my machine back a few days with system recovery, and deleted that entire folder inside appdata/locallow/adobe that contained the odd file and other stuff that apparently had just installed itself there today while I was browsing the health-related sites.

   There was another symptom where for awhile, it would not let me see processes from all users in the task manager, and I couldn't open the control panel, search anything from the start menu, or run anything as administrator.  However, that problem mysteriously vanished and I am able to do all those things again.

   So, now I'm concerned that there may still be some malware on my computer.  There are still some folders under locallow with random string names and last-modified dates of this afternoon, when all this happened, such as AppData\LocalLow\Temp\rxwpsavngl.  Perhaps I should remove that, but I'm being a little conservative as I want to know what's actually going on.

    I know that for the other person, one of you said that his logs indicated that he had a rootkit.  I'm curious what in the log would indicate that.  I'm attaching logs I created using the Farbar recovery scan tool.  I sanitized some names though, so if you see [MyLastName] or [NameRemoved] it's because I replaced that in the logs.

   Please let me know if anything in these logs would indicate that I have a very serious problem, and what else I should be doing to make sure my machine is completely rid of this malware.

    Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this, because I'm sure this new problem is bound to affect many more people, and perhaps you're just seeing some of the first few cases of it.

My name's Naathim and I'm a GeekU Minion! Now that we are mates and will be working together to clean your machine out of any junkware, feel free to call me Naat :)

Before we start please note the following:

icon_arrow.gif Analysis and research take some time, also sometimes real life gets in the way, please be patient.
icon_arrow.gif Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
icon_arrow.gif Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
icon_arrow.gif Paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work harder and more complicated.
icon_arrow.gif Stay with me to the end, the absence of symtoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
icon_arrow.gif Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.

icon_idea.gif I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
icon_idea.gif There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Let's start and enjoy the fight! :)

Before we move on, I'd like to see the fresh reports, as it has been some days since your last post.

FRST.gif Scan with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

Please re-run Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    > XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File.
    > 8 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.
  • Make sure that Addition option is checked.
  • Press Scan button and wait.
  • The tool will produce two logfiles on your desktop: FRST.txt and Addition.txt.

Please include their content in your next reply.

Hi :)

Please, do not amend anything in your logs. Sometimes various infection make strange named foders in different locations, I need to know exactly what is sitting in there. These are also the paths I will be using in scripts if neccesary.

How many tabs do you have opened in Chrome at once?

Not much very significant so far...
