Hi
When I start the computer for some reason iexplore seems to start twice before I open the internet shortcut. When I have the internet open I can no longer access any download or update sites so my AVG 8 ( free version) and Windows automatic updates cannot update. My computer keeps freezing and I cannot close anything so have to turn off to shut it down. I;m Windows XP with service pack 3 installed.
When I do searchs I end up being re-directed to Live search .com and Britannia?? but even clicking the links there doesn't work. Sometimes porn pages are coming up when I try to get on the Microsoft Updates pages.
Since this started I've installed error smart with the anti spyware option but it hasn't picked up any virus. I also installed CCleaner. Am at my wits end to know what's going on or how to fix it.

I can't get to any link on this site so am posting from another computer.

Hijack this log from today and the start up log below. Please Help. Thanks

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!


Please close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of SDFix and make sure you are disconnected from the Internet after downloading the program but before extracting the files.

  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with SDFix and remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
  • Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.


Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter
  • Choose your usual account.
  • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
    (Report.txt will also be copied to the clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
  • Paste the contents of the Report.txt back here with a new HijackThis log

Hi Cybertech

Thanks a million for looking at this for me. I have follwed your instructions and disabled all the pieces as outlined and have the SDFIx copied in and ready to run but when I try to start in Safe mode I get an error
"the video driver has failed to initialize". There's all the usual blurb on the blue screen.
If I try to boot up as normal she boots up no problem it just won't work in Safe mode.

Any suggestions how I get round this?

Thanks

Run this instead...

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop. alternate download link 1 alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply with a new hijackthis log.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Hi Cybertech

Thanks for quick response. Wasn't expecting anything until tomorrow given the time difference.
I followed your instructions. Malware log below. I saved it to my memory stick so I could upload from this computer instead of the sick one.
It did ask for a reboot so I clicked ok but WIndows is taking forever to shutdown. It's been sitting for about 5 minutes now just saying Windows is shutting down with no lights flickering. Will I just leave it or should I intervene by hitting the power switch?

I hope you left it and it did eventually shut down. It was, no doubt, killing off some of the processes.

Run it again before you reply and post the new log.

Hi ya

Gave up waiting on it so shut it down after an hour and a half. As soon as I started it up again I re-ran Malwarebytes. I found 2 more infected files and cleaned them up. Have done nothing else since but have the internet disabled on that laptop so nothing new can sneak in. Log below.

Open Windows Explorer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab. Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". Now click "Apply to all folders" Click "Apply" then "OK".

Now empty these two folders:
C:\WINDOWS\Temp
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp

If there are other profiles on the machine empty those C:\Documents and Settings\Other\Local Settings\Temp folders as well.

Download OTScanIt.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt on your desktop.
  1. Close any open browsers.
  2. If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTScanIt, allow it to run.
  3. Open the OTScanit folder and double-click on OTScanit.exe to start the program.
  4. In Additional Scans section put a check in BotCheck and Disabled MS Config Items and EventViewer Errors/Warnings
  5. Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  6. The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  7. When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  8. Save that notepad file
If the log is too large to post, use the Reply button, scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

Have run that but it ran very quickly - less than a minute!

I left all the settings as they were presented except the 2 you told me to check in advanced settings.
It's a bit bigger than the previous logs so I've taken your advice an attached the file rather than copying it in here.

Again Thanks

What was the Impersonate Privilege Upgrade Tool has run line in the log about? Obviously I'm clueless about all of this but spotted the word Impersonate and thought it looked iffy?

The computer is running fine but I haven't re-activated the AVG or Windows defender etc or tried the internet yet until I got the OK from you. Have no idea how whatever it was got in or how to prevent it happening again. I would have thought I had enough protection with AVG8 and Windows defender but seemingly not.

Probably a silly question but would whatever infected the machine have blocked the system backup and restore facility. I did try to do a system restore at the start of all this a few weeks ago but though it allowed me to select the date but did nothing when I clicked on Next to start the restore no matter what backup date I chose.

I have to hit the sack now so won't be able to do anymore until lunchtime tomorrow as I'm out from 8 - 11.30 in the morning.

Thanks a mill for your help so far - what I wouldn't do to have your know how

You would have to read up on LSA http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa380529(VS.85).aspx

That key is fine in your log.

Malware can cause problems with your system restore. Best to clear that out as it is likely infected anyway.

I would also suggest staying away from registry cleaners as they cause more problems than they fix.


I think you should proceed with turning on the anti-virus and see what happens. I would also suggest doing a scan with Kaspersky when you venture back on the internet.

Kaspersky WebScanner

Kaspersky online scanner uses JAVA tecnology to perform the scan. If you do not have the latest JAVA version, follow the instrutions below under Upgrading Java, to download and install the latest vesion.

  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  • Make sure the following is checked.
    • Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      [*]Archives
      [*]Mail databases
  • Click on My Computer under Scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  • Please post this log in your next reply.

Hi Cybetech

So far the internet connections seem to be working. AVG has updated sucessfully for the first time in weeks. I then closed it down to install Kybersky but am running into problems. My Java version is up to date but when Kaspersky starts downloading "packages/kos-bin-winnt-redist.jarit " it then presents a dialog box telling me that the Java Appelet could not be started and that I need to go online to start it. I have no idea what this means. Then Kaspersky starts another larger download (Downloading file: packages/kos-bin-winnt-engine.jar) of 2060 kb but seems to stop at 77kb with no further error messages. Sorry to be a pain.

jar is java so that seems to be giving you a problem.

Has AVG found anything?

I'll run an AVG scan now. All I did earlier was to allow it to update and once it did that I moved onto Kaspersky
