I was advised to repost my malware topic "Win32/Virtumonde & Reinfecting Friends" here by a fellow staffer, to receive assistants from someone with the same OS as me, Windows 8.1. The source of the reinfecting malicious ads and tracking cookies in my appdata, banner ads in flashplayer, and audio pop-ups by ad doubleclick net and stalker banner ads on some websites couldn't be found. I've added MVP's host file list to my hosts file but some it's being bypassed and the very first entry on the host list "fr a2dfp net" is always listening. The information below came from Process Explorer properties TCP/IP tab and all the empty spaces in the web addresses and IPs is a dot, I left out the dots to try to prevent hyperlinks.

 That website is also in mDNSResponder.exe:1472 (Bonjour service), CLMSServerpDVD12.exe:114544 & 212872 (CyberLink PowerDVD12 Media Server Service), lass.exe:612, services.exe:604, spoolsv.exe:1276, svchost.exe:760 (RPCSS service), svchost.exe:928 (Local Service Network Restricted, Event Log service), svchost.exe:929 (Dhcp service), svchost.exe:976 (Netsvcs, Schedule service), svchost.exe:1072 (Network Service, (Dnscache service), svchost.exe:2720 (Local Service And No Impersonation) has a local address communicating with a remote address *:* using SSDPSRV service, fr a2dfp net is in wininit.exe:552, and iexplorer along with 5 established connections with 'ec2-52-19-170-37 eu-west-1 compute amazonaws com' 2 connections with 'server-54-192-48-122 jfk5 r cloudfront net' 1 connection with 'server-54-230-82-121 mia50 r cloudfront net' 4 connections with an IP '72 21 91 127' and 2 connections with IP '72 21 91 96', also 'yv-in-f100 1e100 net' and '104 20 92 192' and more will pile on the longer I stay connected to the internet. I think this malware is using DLLs app extentions because I see a lot of them have an unknown source that uses them. I also have lagging issues with graphics and sound, the problem only starts when I have my computer running for about 2 hours then the cursor, graphics, and sound become choppy. The problem happens faster if about 4-6 times a schedule task starts after 4 mintues of idle time or 2 sleep modes which causes apps that were open to crash. I've tried to stop task scheduler from starting every 4 idle minutes by disabling idle tasks but it's always enabled again after every restart or shut down. The images on my icons are slowly disappearing from my taskbar, my favorites list in Internet Explorer 11, and the apps and pinned sites in the lower half of the start screen. Oddly I can see them when I boot into safe mode and when boot normal after safe mode but again after my computer has been running for awhile they disappear again. I'm also having moments of is it me or malware because I can't prove it and I'm not 100% sure. But I don't remember seeing so many blue lettered folders and files (the names are in blue instead of black, and is that a sing of packed or compressed?) odd named folders and files, lower cased letters used for the names of files and folders, info missing from details tabs on files especially missing copyrights, folder and files with a blank sheet of white paper as it's icon and processes in task manager that pop in and out fast. If you know of an article I can read about files and folders what is odd but normal and what's malicious I would truly appreciate it. I know some of the things I listed above can be normal but I learned that slowly by thinking I found malware only to be told no I didn't that's normal.

     I did get some warings of malware from Virus Total when I recently used Processes Explorer and Autoruns.

As it seems that Nasdaq has not finished with your topic in AII -




I have decided to lock this topic for the time being since having two topics on the same problem open at one time just leads to confusion. I have sent Nasdaq a PM and I am waiting for a reply which should clarify things. If he is finished, or if he feels reasonably sure that malware is not at the root of your problems then I will re-open this and put a post in this topic to say so.
