Smitfraud-C and Virtumonde - Need help removing!!!

Unread postby meirabu » February 2nd, 2009, 7:36 pm

I bought my HP Pavilion laptop ( Windows XP ) used but in good shape, except for a few popups now and then that I disregarded. A few days ago, I opened the laptop only to find a blue screen telling me that Windows had detected an error and shut down to avoid damage. I got the same screen again today. I had problems with Smitfraud on my previous laptop. I ran a check with Spybot S&D and during the botcheck, I could see clearly "Smitfraud-C" and its other components running down in the lower left of the scan window, but Spybot was not even detecting them! Virtumonde also appeared for a long while as well as Zango, Zlob, etc. I have run SmitfraudFix twice but it continues to appear in the lower-left of Spybot scans. I do not want to have to spend even more money on my computer because of a recurring virus! Help is very much appreciated.

Here is my HJT log:

Hello and sorry about the delay,

Welcome to the Malware Removal Forums! My name is Adam and I will be assisting you with getting the malware off of your computer. Please observe the following points before we start:
  1. If at any point you don't understand something, please let me know and I will be glad to expain or go more into depth for you. :)
  2. I am still in training, so my responses may take more time than usual because all of my posts must be checked by an expert or teacher.
    Also, please remember, I am a volunteer and I have a personal life. I go to school full time, have a part time job, and I do sports. A lot of this takes a lot of time.
  3. Please keep all of your replys in this topic/thread and do not make a new topic/thread, thanks!
  4. Please stick with this, don't stop responding because the symptoms are gone, the infection could still be there. Keep replying to my posts until I give you the All Clean message. ;)
  5. If you don't reply within five days after my last instructions this topic will be closed. If you will not be able to reply within five days please tell me so the topic will not be closed.
  6. Please do not run other tools to remove the malware unless I ask you to until I give you the all clean. They will just mess up my fixes and make things more complicated, not fix the problem.

If you still need help, please do the following:

Make an Uninstall List

Next, please make an uninstall list using HijackThis.
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.

Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad here on your next reply. Please also include a new HijackThis log.

If you have not replied within 5 days, then I will assume that you no longer need help and this topic will be closed.

Due to a 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.
