Annoying pop ups

Well, I've learned quite a lot in the last hour or two. I have uninstalled my P2P program (limewire) already and am now posting my hijack this log for you all to help me with. I'm getting random pop ups while I'm on the internet.

Hello SullyandDaisy and welcome to the forums.

Please do not run any other programs with out my permission !!
Run all programs in the order posted !!!!!


My name is flashh4 and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:

1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
3. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
(Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)
4. Please note you'll need to have Administrator privileges to perform the fixes. (XP accounts are Administrator by default)
5. Please let me know if you are using a computer with multiple accounts, as this can affect the instructions given.
6. Please post all request .......... not as a Attachment.

If you can do those things, everything should go smoothly.

Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the HJT forum and wait for help.

Note: I am still in training at Malware Removal, however I will be working under the direct supervision of one of our Malware Experts. Any recommendations will first be approved before being given to you. Because of this, there may be a short delay in getting our responses to you, however be assured that we will be working diligently on your problem.


I suggest you do this:

Double-click My Computer.
Click the Tools menu, and then click Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
Clear "Hide file extensions for known file types."
Under the "Hidden files" folder, select "Show hidden files and folders."
Clear "Hide protected operating system files."
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Open the HijackThis Folder. Find the file HijackThis.exe, Right Click on the file and Select Rename. Rename Hijackthis.exe to Spyware.exe.

Post a new HijackThis Log.


NEXT


  1. Open HijackThis.
  2. Click on the Open the Misc Tools section button.
  3. Look under System tools.
  4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  5. Click on the Save list... button.
  6. It will prompt you to save. Save this log in a convenient location. By default it's named uninstall_list.txt.
  7. Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply.


*Notes*
1. It would be very helpful if you informed me of which Antivirus and Firewall you are running or if it's disabled.
2. There is a 5 day limit which you must respond to this topic or it will be closed. Then you will have to start a new topic.


Post these next:
1. Newly named HJT log

I believe the virus that I might have is the Trojan.virtumonde virus. I ran a scan before I posted for help here and that trojan plus Trojan-Downloader.Injector are the two that came up on my scan.

I appreciate your help! It's great to have a resource like this. I'm glad I know now at least that P2P sharing is no good. I'll never do that again.

Hi SullyandDaisy, lets continue.

There seems to be no updates from Microsoft, i need you to run Microsoft's MGA Diagnostic tool and post its log.
1. Download http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 to your desktop.
2. Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program
3. Click "Continue"
4. Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).
5. Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.
6. Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.

Thanks
Chuck

Hi SullyandDaisy, the reason i had you run the MGA Diagnostics tool is because you have no updates from MS. Can you explain why there is no updates on your computer.
These are very important in keeping you safe. So before we continue with the cleaning (which you are heavily infected) we need to solve this problem.

I have discussed your situation with my Teacher and we cannot clean your computer because we would be just wasting our time, yours and mine.

There are 2 things i suggest you do so we can continue with the cleaning.
1. I would also contact MS and find out why you cannot get any updates. They have a free support service for people who are having troubles with updates.

This is our last resort here:
2. A reformat and reinstallation of the OS may very likely resolve your updating issues as well as getting rid of all the malware on the system.

I wish i could be of more assistance in ridding you of the infections but without the updates and the service packs updated its impossible for me to continue unless we can figure out how to get you the updates needed.

Let me know what your thoughts are with this problem ??

Thanks
Chuck

MS is microsoft? I don't know why there are no updates. I didn't know that anything needed to be updated. I guess I'm not understanding? Can I go somewhere to download them? Or how does that work? I'm not sure who I contact about getting the updates.

I want to add that my dad downloaded Avast! antivirus on my computer while I was at work and ran it. May I repost my hijackthis log, etc. from the beginning and have you look at that to see if I'm uninfected because I am no longer seeing symptoms and when I run a scan it says there are no infected files found.

Also, I really want to get updates to try to fix this, but I'm not sure where to go to get them or how!

Okay, I want to repost all of these because I have gone through and updated a lot of things! I figured it out myself and had about 63 updates to do. I don't know how it got turned off, but it's back on now and set to auto update and install. Very strange. Here is my new log of everything:

Hi SullyandDaisy, great work there getting the updates turned on. Please do nothing else on your own it may just make the infection harder to remove.

Lets continue with the cleaning.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and save it to a convenient location.
  2. Double click on mbam-setup.exe to install it.
  3. Before clicking the Finish button, make sure that these 2 boxes are checked (ticked):
      Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
      Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  4. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will now check for updates. If your firewall prompts, please allow it. If you can't update it, select the Update tab. Under Update Mirror, select one of the websites and click on Check for Updates.
  5. Select the Scanner tab. Click on Perform full scan, then click on Scan.
  6. Leave the default options as it is and click on Start Scan.
  7. When done, you will be prompted. Click OK, then click on Show Results.
  8. Checked (ticked) all items and click on Remove Selected.
  9. After it has removed the items, Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply. You can also find the log in the Logs tab. The bottom most log is the latest.


Post the Malwarebytes log and a new HJT log.

Thanks
Chuck

I did all of those things, but could not delete the folder titled dgnbah.dll because there was not one in my folder. I made sure that all hidden files/folders were shown, but it was not there.

Hi SullyandDaisy, Since you already have Malwarebytes' installed i would keep this valuable tool. I run mine a few times a week to check my computer for anything it may have picked up.
You can continue to manually update and use MBAM as an on demand scanner.
There is also an upgrade to the paid version.
Instructions on use:
Click/open Malwarebytes' on your desk top, click the Update tab, click the box check for updates, use the option "perform quick scan".
# When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
# Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected

Congratulation you are clean !!! :cheers:

This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows XP or Vista then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and re-enable system restore here:

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

    • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

    • Update your AntiVirus Software and keep your other programs up-to-date
      Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
      You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
      Secunia Software Inspector
      F-secure Health Check

    • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupda ... ankspage=5 regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

    • Install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a new and powerful anti-malware tool. It is
      totally free but for real-time protection you will have to pay a small one-time fee. Tutorial on installing & using this product can be found below:

      Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Setup Guide

      Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Scanning Guide

    • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

      A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

      Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

    • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
    Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

    Here are some additional utilities that will enhance your safety


Stand Up and Be Counted ---> Malware Complaints <--- where you can make difference!

The site offers people who have been (or are) victims of malware the opportunity to document their story and, in that way, launch a complaint against the malware and the makers of the malware.
