Firewall Removal

Unread postby heathermarie73 » August 21st, 2007, 1:11 pm

Okay... I deleted the firewall from safe mode. Upon reboot, I decided to attempt to log on under my name. I logged in and the vundofix box came up.. As I clicked the button to delete the vundo virus, I was thinking. .you probably shouldn't do this.... but I did it anyways.. so, I am not sure if it went through or not.. but afterwards... when it went to reboot.. once again.. no go.. After several attempts at safe mode.. which also wouldn't boot.. I tried to log on under me again in normal mode.. Finally, it booted and here I am.. As of right now, safe mode is no longer a booting option, though..
My spybot sd resident booted along with this boot, and being afraid of the rammifications.. I stopped the scan.

I will be waiting on your response... Thank you again for all your help....

this is terrible.... : (

PC Booting

Unread postby heathermarie73 » August 21st, 2007, 7:00 pm

FYI...
Each time I shut my pc down and then later come back to reboot it... I have to boot it up several times before it will come up. I am not sure if these means anything to you or not.. but just though I would let you know..

Thank you..

Kind Regards,

HeatherMarie

Booting

Unread postby heathermarie73 » August 21st, 2007, 10:36 pm

Another thing... I have found that if I do not continuously hit the enter key... I am unable to get my pc to fully boot. I begin hitting my enter key as soon as my dell page goes away.. and until i get to my sign on page for each user's name. I do not know if this makes a difference or not.. but just in case.. i thought i would let you know..

Kind Regards,

HeatherMarie

Hi HeatherMarie,

What I can tell from your problems with booting is that your system has become very unstable by all the malware which is on it or because we're trying to remove it. It will probably get better as there will be less and less malware on your system.

At the moment I can't write a fix because I'm at work but in 2 hours I'm at home and will write you a fix against malware :)

Greets, John.

Hi,

You hit Vundo very well so we can move on to the next infection. Please follow these steps very carefully so you can post the right results and we can clean your computer faster.

Step 1: Disable A-Squared Guard
Please disable A-Squared Guard as it may interfere with the fix. To disable A-Squared Guard:
  • Open A-Squared.
  • Click on Configure Background-Guard.
  • Deselect Enable background guard on system startup.
  • Close the window.
  • Close A-Squared.
Note: Reverse this process after your malware removal is complete.

Step 2: Disable Teatimer
Please disable Teatimer as it may interfere with the fix.
First:
  • Right click Spybot in the System Tray (looks like a calendar with a padlock symbol)
  • Choose Exit Spybot S&D Resident
Second:
  • Open Spybot S&D
  • Click Mode, check Advanced Mode
  • Go To Left Panel, Click Tools, then also in left panel, click Resident
  • If your firewall raises a question, say OK
  • Uncheck the box labeled Resident Tea-Timer and OK any prompts.
  • Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
Step 3: Remove bad HijackThis entries
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click on the Scan button
  • Put a check beside all of the items listed below (if present):

This item is not in the system32 file. There is nothing in there that is even close to this name. I looked through every item in this file. It's not there.. So, what do I do now? I stopped at Virustotal.
The last thing I did was the removal of the items in via HiJackThis.

It's good that the file isn't there, because it's probably bad ;) Please move on with the next step and forget about Virustotal results.

Please just post the logs. I also have a program called 'ffdshow audio decoder' which I use to watch films. I'll see in the logs what's wrong :)

One Thing

Unread postby heathermarie73 » August 22nd, 2007, 2:55 pm

A windows installer box keeps coming up. It doesn't ask me if I want to.. it just starts downloading something. I immediately click cancel. It does this each time I boot.

Hi HeatherMarie,

it is something called
ffdshow audio decoder

what do i do? i want to close this.. but i am not sure if it is supposed to be running or not

You have a so called codec pack installed on your system which can be used to watch all kinds of coded films:
K-Lite Codec Pack 2.85 Standard
I also have that codec pack so there's nothing wrong about it.

Please keep on cancelling it until I'm 100% sure your system is clean and we can begin with fixing non-malware related problems.

As I said in my second post it may take some time before you will see things change but your system is improving at the moment! No need for a firewall until all the malware is gone because we found out your system can't take it now.

Step 1: Remove bad HijackThis entries
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click on the Scan button

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ewta] "C:\PROGRA~1\MCROSO~1\mmc.exe" -vt yazb
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Affntiog] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\??pPatch\w?crtupd.exe"

  • Close all open windows and browsers/email, etc...
  • Click on the "Fix Checked" button
  • When completed, close the application.
Step 2: Download and Run ATF Cleaner
Download ATF (Atribune Temp File) Cleaner© by Atribune to your desktop.

Double-click ATF Cleaner.exe to open it.

Under Main choose:

*The other boxes are optional*
Then click the Empty Selected button.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Step 3: Run Kaspersky Online Scan
Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky,
Click Yes.

  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT

    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:

  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:
      Select My Computer
  • The program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
Step 4: Download and Run ComboFix
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall
