Hidden Malware

Unread postby TheFrogyPrince » August 24th, 2008, 9:24 am

I have malware somewhere on my computer that causes pop-ups to load as soon as I open Internet Explorer and nearly every time I visit a new web page. It has not been detected by my AVG anti-virus software or my Spyware Terminator programs, and obviously it pop-ups are getting past my pop-up blocker somehow. I downloaded Hijack This to help find the malware, but I do not know what to keep or get rid of. Can you you help? The Hijack this log is below. Thank you!

Hi TheFrogyPrince

We will begin with ComboFix. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:

  1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

  2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

C:\ComboFix.txt
New HijackThis log.


A word of warning: Please do not run ComboFix on your own. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
