I know im not really supposed to reply like this but I removed a few programs and I figured you could use an update.

I got rid of the FCyber Trojan but I realize also that my Wuauclt file is..... not normal. It loads, sits, and... well... sits. I remember this being the culprit of infection at one point in the past, but I dont know how to safely get rid of it.

Also: When I try to log in to anything this is a problem.
  • With gmail it will go spastic and constantly resend the information (for ever if I let it) until I start clicking the stop button.
  • With BC it wont let me log in on the home page; I have to go to the login page first. When I go to post however I have to log back in... even if it was only 30 seconds after I logged in.
  • With others, It simply doesnt do anything. No errors specified by either my computer or the website. It simply acts as if it refreshed the page I was on.
Here is the new log, and im sorry if you consider this to be a bump.

Hi Fragglerock, :thumbsup:

Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums and thanks again for your patience.

Yes you were/are indeed infected with
Spyware.CyberAlert: The gathered information can be viewed locally or sent to an email address defined by the remote attacker.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately until it's clean. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or it if it contains any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the Trojan has been identified there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Should you decide not to follow that advice, we will of course do our best to clean the computer of any infections that we can see but, as I already stated, we can in no way guarantee it to be trustworthy.

Visit the following sites for more information on internet theft and when to reformat!

If you have any questions before to come to a final decision, please feel free to ask.

Please let me know your decision.

P.S. Did you install CyberAlert yourself?

No but someone else might have... I wouldn't think so though.

I'm just going to go ahead and try to clean up the computer some more. The only problem I seem to have anymore is with logging on to websites, and staying logged on, with IE. FF seems to have no problems at all.

Thanks for the info and help. :thumbsup:

Hi Fragglerock, :thumbsup:

I'm just going to go ahead and try to clean up the computer some more.


Okay.

1. Are you using an antivirus and a firewall? I see nothing in your log that would indicate that you have one installed and active.

> Firewall: there are several good but for free programmes available like:

Sygate
Kerio
Zone alarm

For a tutorial on Firewalls click: Understanding and Using Firewalls!

> AntiVirus: see this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs: Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources!

2. Run HijackThis, click Scan and checkmark the following entries:

O2 - BHO: IEWatchObj Class - {9527D42F-D666-11D3-B8DD-00600838CD5F} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\IETie.dll (file missing)

Close all browsers and windows, except for HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button; close HijackThis!

3. Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune. Do not run it yet!

4. Download, install, and update AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5

1. Save the installer to desktop
2. Double click the installer, select your language, and then select OK
3. Click NEXT>>Do or don't read the "User License Agreement"
Select I Agree>>>NEXT>>>INSTALL
4. AVG will now install and afterwards click FINISH
5. AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 should now Load
6. Click the Update tab at the top. Under Manual Update click Start update.
7. After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
8. Close AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5. Do not run it yet.

5. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode. To boot into Safe Mode, please restart your computer. Tap F8 before Windows loads. Select Safe Mode at the top, on the screen that appears.
Sign in with your normal user account.

6. Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.

7. Then run AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and click on the Scanner tab at the top
  • Click the "Settings" tab and then change the recommended action to Quarantine and ensure that Automatically generate report after every scan is selected and uncheck "Only if Threats are found"
  • Click back to the "Scan" tab and then click on Complete System Scan.
    This scan can take quite a while to run, so be prepared.
  • AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 will list any infections found on the left hand side. When the scan has finished, it will automatically set the recommended action. Click the Apply all actions button. AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 will display "All actions have been applied" on the right hand side.
  • Click on "Save Report", then "Save Report As". This will create a text file. Make sure you know where to find this file again (like on the Desktop).
Please reboot and post the AVG report together with a fresh HijackThis log.

I have the net-defense firewall.

I ran the ATF cleaner successfully. AVG found nothing, and there were no skipped files.

Thanks again for your time... I've noticed we don't seem to be getting anywhere.

Hi Fragglerock, :thumbsup:

1.

AVG found nothing, and there were no skipped files.


I would prefer to see the report myself, if that's still possible. Could you please add it to your next post?

2.

Thanks again for your time... I've noticed we don't seem to be getting anywhere.


You're very welcome and sorry to disagree since the logs show what is going on and it's clear we're not done yet.

3. Your log shows a suspicious file in your running processes:

C:\WINDOWS\mIRC\mirc.exe

This may indicate more bad news: Troj/Flood-EU, a backdoor Trojan for the Windows platform which allows others to access the computer.

What confuses me however is that it's in its own folder: C:\WINDOWS\mIRC

Did you install it? If not follow my instructions in step 6.

4. Disable real-time protection from AVG Anti-Spyware:

* Launch AVG Anti-Spyware.
* From the "Status" menu, select "Change state" to inactivate 'Resident Shield' and 'Automatic Updates'.
* Then right click on AVG Anti-Spyware in the system tray and uncheck "Start with Windows".
* Next, go to Start > Run and type: services.msc
* Press "OK".
* Click the "Extended tab" and scroll down the list to find AVG Anti-Spyware guard.
* When you find the guard service, double-click on it.
* In the Properties Window > General Tab that opens, click the "Stop" button.
* From the drop-down menu next to "Startup Type", click on "Manual".
* Now click "Apply", then "OK" and close the Services window.

5. Run HijackThis, click Scan and checkmark the following entries:

O2 - BHO: IEWatchObj Class - {9527D42F-D666-11D3-B8DD-00600838CD5F} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\IETie.dll (file missing)

Close all browsers and windows, except for HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button; close HijackThis!

6. Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please delete the following folders in bold if they exist:

C:\WINDOWS\mIRC

7. Download Silent Runners.zip and extract it (right-click and choose Extract all) to a new folder on your Desktop.
  • Run the Silent Runners.vbs file.
  • You will receive a prompt: "Do you want to skip supplementary searches?" - click "NO."
  • If your antivirus has a script blocker, you will get a warning asking if you want to allow Silent Runners.vbs to run.
  • This script is not malicious so please allow it.
  • A text file will appear in the folder - it's not done, let it run. (It won't appear to be doing anything!)
  • Once the "All Done!" prompt flashes up, open the text file, and copy & paste it in your next reply.
Please reboot and post the Silent Runners report together with the AVG report (if you still have that) and a fresh HijackThis log.
