see post below

I want to add a few updates.  I did a virus scan this morning and while it didn't find anything, it took three times longer than normal.  I followed that with a MalwareBytes scan and it detected three items, all related to Vosteran, which I thought was completely off my computer.  Obviously not.  I haven't downloaded any new things.  Here is what MalwareBytes found the three items listed below.  I am doing a second scan but this time the scan is including the rootkit.
Last week I installed WOT add-on extensions to Chrome and IE.  I already had it installed with FireFox (my default.)  I see that two of the PUP items are related to Chrome, which was the browser with which I was having Vosteran problems.
I hope I didn't screw anything up running AV and Malwarebyte scans.  Just to be certain, I will run a second DDS scan and post it below.
Yesterday when I opened a browser, it went to YouTube on its own.

As instructed, I ran a DDS scan and am posting a new thread.


A few weeks ago I downloaded a browser hijacker Vosteran from sourceforge when I downloaded Filezilla.  That was taken care of here at Bleeping Computer.  The moderator who helped me told me to change my sensitive passwords and i immediately did so for online banking.  A few days later I was informed that a credit card was flagged as there was some suspicious activity reported.   I contacted the bank and filed a report and they cancelled the card.  The bank caught the activity before they were able to use the card.


A few days later I started having various Yahoo problems.  I have a few Yahoo email accounts.  Last week two of my email account passwords were compromised.  I reset the passwords.  Today, a third account was compromised.  And two days ago someone got into my Wordpress account and I changed that password as well.


As for my Yahoo issues (I use Firefox - Windows 7 OS) 3=4 times now Firefox crashed while I was writing email.  Yesterday I got an error msg after the crash, something about network issues.


I don't know if this has anything to do with anything but I got curious and checked Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > Windows Log > System and note HUNDREDS of the same item.  I posted one example of this in my initial "Am I Infected" post.




One other thing I noticed...a few days ago I did a search on Yahoo and noticed that my WOT donuts were missing.  I checked the same search on Google and they were visible.  I came back to Yahoo and tried again and they were visible.  I tried this a few times and it seems that on the first attempt, something turned them off.  I reinstalled this Mozilla Add-On and that fixed the problem.  I just ran a MalwareBytes scan before I ran this DDS report and it found three items, two of which were related to Vosteran, my original infection.  They were embedded in Chrome extensions.


As instructed, here is the DDS report and I'll attach the other ZIP file.

I was gone a few days.  I will start these procedures today.  As a note, I've been seeing msg boxes pop up and disappear before I have a chance to read them.


Thanks.  I just want you to know I'm on it now.

I noticed some odd behavior with my computer today, like as I mentioned, msg boxes popped up a few times and disappeared before I had a chance to read them and just now it has become completely unstable.  When I opened a file which had your instructions, most of the text was garbled.  And when I clicked on an internet link, instead of opening the page, it opened a TAB and I couldn't get a page open. 


Can I download those programs you told me to run onto a thumb drive and run them from it in safe mode?  What do I do? 






Hi.  My system is totally whacky now.  I had to spend the day backing up data.  As I mentioned, this morning while looking at Administrative Tools > DataView > Windows Log > Event (as I recall) the program screen froze and I closed and reopened it (the EventView program.)  While I was poking around, two msg boxes popped up asking me something or other but then disappeared before I could read them.  

I did a scan on my computer before reading your post and Malware Bytes found two PUPs, both related to that malware I picked up from SourceForge, Vosteran hijack.  I haven't had any problems with it but I noticed that it won't show up on a scan and then a scan or two later, Malwarebytes finds two.  One was linked to Chrome and the other to some WOW file.  I don't use Chrome but that is the browser that was affected by Vosteran.  

As I said, I was backing up files all afternoon.  Just as I finished, Windows started freaking out.  It started when I opened Firefox and clicked on an image and instead of opening the image, it opened a new tab.  I was unable to open the image at all.  Then I went back into Administrative tools to see if there were any error msgs and when I clicked on a listing, it stuck and opened two or three at a time.  I don't know if this is important but I did find one in the Windows System log that read:  "Event 133.  Device/Device/CdRom() is locked for exclusive use."  When I looked at your post, I was curious was Farbar was and found some information that it is used to randsom hard drive problems.  Do you think that is what is going on here?

Anyway, I couldn't even search a term online so I shut down and won't touch the computer until I hear from you.

I do NOT have recovery disks.  It's a Lenovo laptop and I did register it with Lenovo.  Perhaps for a fee they will send me a disk?

I need to know if my backup DVDs and flash drives are safe?  How do I make sure I didn't load any malware on theM?  I checked the DVDs by scanning them with MalwareBytes and it found nothing.  (I have auto-play turned off.)  I have three falsh drives with back-up data.  How do I check them?  I don't want to reinfect myself when I finally get the computer running again.  I have a lot of important files that I need.

Please advise.

PS - You might want to tell the technician who helped me the first time that when s/he told me my computer was clean...it wasn't.

I need to go out and buy a new thumb drive because important data is stored on the ones I own. 


I need to know about how I can check to make sure this infection didn't leave me any surprises on the thumb drives and DVDs I made yesterday.  I have important material on them that I need to access ASAP.

Windows is completely unstable.  When I click on an internet link, I can only access the first level.  When I click on a link on that page, it opens up a TAB and I can' use any links on the tab.  When I select files from a list, it selects more than the one that I click on. Its a real mess.  Now I'm having some issues with the temp computer I'm now using.  Is there any possibility that who or whatever locked onto my first computer somehow gained access to the network I'm on?  I have Comcast Wi-Fi.  I'm having strange issues, with disappearing icons from my tray that I can't get back, yesterday when I powered down, I got a msg saying a program was still running and did I want to force it to shut down (but I couldn't hit the cancel button fast enough to investigate) and I'm having trouble activating a trial version of BitDefenders AV.  It says that I am protected but just now on a boot up I got a msg box about allowing it to activate.  That's the first time that happened.  I'm really screwed cuz I need to get some work done and I need to buy something online but am afraid to use a credit card or check my online banking.

No, I haven't.  I've been having a lot of trouble securing the computer I'm now using.  I think my wi-fi was compromised.  I contacted Comcast and they told me to reset my network password and download their Nortons.  I'm not a fan of Nortons but I'm not having any luck with BitDefender.  I downloaded the free version, tried to register it and never did get a confirmation and I was unable to scan my computer.  I have to have a working and trusted computer as I have some critical work to complete.  I'll have to put this infected computer on hold for a few days.  I will try RogueKill and tell you what happens, if I can even get it running.  I'm posting a LONG list of stopped services I found on Services via MSCONFIG in Windows 7.  Not being a techie, some of them look like they should be running, so hopefully someone who knows this will tell me if there are any critical services I need to turn on.  Also, I'm havinhaing quite a time of some icons not showing in my tray (Network and Volume.)  This morning the network was showing that Windows Blue Busy spinner and it was continuous.  It stopped after I changed the password and installed Nortons.

I will have to do this over the weekend.  Please be patient.  I am doing primary care for an elderly person and don't have so much time.  I do need to get my computer up and running again.  And now I'm having strange behavior on my next computer, even though we reset my network password. 


Unless I am being overy suspicious, I'm guessing that whoever hacked my first computer got into my network and planted a backdoor on this second computer?  I just found a url link on my browser bar that I did not add,, and I was able to track it down to a page with PHP code for Flickr.  It's from this page:




Here is the link location from that suspicious icon:





I see code that looks like it acquires user names.  I also saw words like "stack overflow" in this code and am guessing that someone is into this computer.  I posted a thread about the purpose of this code here: 




To summarize my situation:


Computer #1 was hacked.  Windows is unstable.  It is turned off and I haven't had time to run the programs BC listed.  I will do so because I need the data on that computer.  I did manage to copy it before it went unstable, on DVD and a few thumb drives, but I do not know if I copied malicious crap along with my files.  The data is very important to me and my work.  I don't know how to proceed, checking them, especially since the computer I am now using might be infected as well.  I have not run any of the programs suggested yet.  When I start in, where do I start?  Various programs mentioned I run include some ad cleaners, RogueKill, and a Windows repair. (I need to find ot first if I can even do anything on that computer as Windows was very unstable when I turned it off. Perhaps that is my first step...to see if I can run programs.  Should I try starting it up in Safe Mode?  Would that make a difference?)


I contacted Comcast on Sunday and they reset my network password and I installed their version of Nortons and have it running now.


Computer #2 is now showing signs of suspicious behavior.  I'm guessing (not being a technie at all) that someone hacked into my wifi and no matter what I do, can gain access to any computer I put online...is that true?  If there is a backdoor on this computer, can it be detected and closed?


I do have recovery disks for computer #2 but not computer #1.


Time is tight for me and I will begin running all the programs BP has indicated I run.


Thank you for your patience.

I realize my situation is getting confusing here since I have two machines involved.  I hope this summary clears things up.


Computer #1 is what this thread is about.  The programs you have suggested I run are:


Farbar Recovery
Tweaking Windows Repair


After Windows became unstable, and before I ran any of these, I turned it off and have not booted it since.  Which program should I run first when I try booting up? 


You may not know that I am possibly having problems with a second computer.  I got it online when computer #1 went south.  I was looking at the services and noticed that quite a few were disabled.  I don't fuss with these things but it seemed like some of them might be important programs to have running.  So I posted the list of them in a new thread here:




Someone else picked up on that and suggested I run MalwareBytes (I did and it was clean) and Eset (haven't done yet due to time constraints.)  And since posting that I noticed a new icon on my Firefox browser bookmark bar.  That was noted here:




I hope this clarifies things.

Will deal with this topic as computer one only.

Run all the tools and fixes that I previously suggested.

Post all the logs you can.

Use two or more post if you need too.
