Hello DFW. I ran the Kaspersky scan as requested, it took 4+ hours to run. The Scan Report was blank. The line above the box read, “No malware has been detected”, so there was no log file to save.

I downloaded and unzipped gmer.exe but was unable to make it Scan. When I click, it opens the program, defaults to the Rootkit/Malware tab. When I try to click on “Scan”, it doesn’t respond. Please see screen shot here:

That's strange, let's try with a fresh copy,

Delete the downloaded GMER.exe, and also delete the unziped folder, then try again using the intruction from my previous post.

If it works, post the log, if not go into the unzipped folder, right click on gmer and rename GMER to any random name, then try again.

Hi. GMER is still not working. Tried everything you suggested. You may notice in the graphic from the link I sent earlier, the Scan, Copy and Save buttons seems to be sitting on top of the list of drives from which one can select for a scan. So something seems to be out of whack.

However, what I did was I opened the renamed GMER (which I called water11.exe), and unchecked everything in the right column. Then I checked everything again, and clicked Scan, and it started. But the aforementioned buttons are still not aligned properly on the GMER program window. For example, the "Copy" button is overtop the ADS entry and checkbox.

Here is the log of that scan:

Hi DFW. This is a related question (perhaps). Since we began running these programs, I noticed that I no longer receive a prompt when I put any kind of media into my DVD/CD drive, be it a blank DVD or CD, a purchased DVD movie or music CD, etc. Nothing happens. If I right-click the drive, I can see that "Autoplay" is set for prompting for various categories (music CD, DVD movie, etc), but it never happens now. If I insert a blank DVD for burning or a blank CD, same thing.

Similarly, previously when I turned on an external drive, Autoplay would rapidly run through and then ask me what to do. This has also stopped happening.

I visited this site to try to fix it, but anything I tried was unsuccessful. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/330135

Any idea why this has happened, and how I might fix it? (If this is an inappropriate question, please advise accordingly!)

Thank you.

-------------

Update: since posting this, I discovered this site: Autoplay Repair Wizard
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... laylang=en

I am running it through its cycles, and making some progress.

Yes combofix changes autorun values of removable drives to prevent reinfection, did you fix this with Autoplay Repair Wizard??.


The Gmer log is good and as the kaspersky log was clean, I would say we got all the infection, so now we just need to clean up and we are done.


Please delete GMER and it's folders from your desktop, do the same with Smitfraud and it's report. Right-click and delete them


I woud keep ATF-Cleaner and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware installed, use ATF Cleaner to keep your system free of useless files, update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
and run weekly or when ever needed.

Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HiJackThis, you can always download it again if needed.


UNINSTALL COMBOFIX

  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK.
  • Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.
  • Image
You can also delete any logs we have produced, and empty your Recycle bin.



Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security

Install SpyWare Blaster 4.0
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm


Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com


Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"

Read some information here how to prevent Malware.

Is your pc running slow?
Read What to do if your Computer is running slowly



Just Pop back and let me know the Clean Up went ok, and autoplay, if you want it back, is fixed

Hello. GMER and Smithfraud are deleted. Hijack This is uninstalled, and Combofix was uninstalled using your instructions.

Autoplay seems to be ok again. I fixed it using Autoplay Repair Wizard.

I will keep ATF Cleaner and Anti-Malware as noted, and run weekly. If Anti-Malware detects a problem somewhere down the line, should I report back here?

Regarding the free programs, do you recommend installing all of them? Is it ok to install any/all of these programs while simultaneously running Avast Pro? If so, I will proceed to install them accordingly as per your advice.

I *cannot* emphasize enough how grateful I am to you, someone who doesn't know me, and yet took the time to help me here. So yes, I will donate, I think such a gesture is the least I can do to express my appreciation, and it is more than a fair request. May I ask what you consider to be a fair donation? Is $20 acceptable?

Hi podbay,


The 3 programs will not conflict with Avast, they work in different ways, and will strengthen your system defences, if you decide to
install them, take your time to get to know each program and what it does, but they will help you against any future infections.
If you were unlucky, and did get infected in the future, you would need to start a new topic, as adding on to old topics can be confusing,
All donations all most welcome, keeping this site going, in the fight against Malware.

Been a pleasure working with you
