Hi I've got a huge problem. I'm having major connectivity issues. Windows will tell me I'm connected but I click my browser and it just says its without getting to the actual search engine. This can go on for over an hour. Occasionally my connection pops back but after awhile it goes screwy again. I can't get running certain programs like AIM or Firefox and hardwiring/using ethernet doesn't work (it can occassionally improve connectivity to things like IE but that's it). I wasn't even being allowed to save on my CD drive and everythings acting...funny really.

Hello... Welcome to the forum.
My name is Wingman, and I'll be helping you with any malware problems.
HijackThis logs can take a while to research, so please be patient.

I am currently under the guidance of the MRU teachers, everything I post to you, has been reviewed by them.
This additional review process can add some extra time to my responses...but not too much

Before we begin...please note the following important guidelines.
  1. The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!.
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable!
  2. Please, if you have questions about something...ASK, don't guess or assume.
  3. Please -only- post your problem at (1) one help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  4. Please -only- reply to this thread, do not start another!
  5. Please do not run any other fix/removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  6. Print each set of instructions...if possible...your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  7. Please, continue responding, until I give you the "All Clean"

If you follow these guidelines, things should proceed smoothly. :)
I am currently reviewing your log and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions.
In the meantime... please perform the following steps.

Step 1.
HJT - Uninstall Manager Log
    Please run HijackThis
      If you are on the "scan & fix stuff" page... Press the "Main Menu"...button.
  1. From the Main Menu...Press the "Open the Misc Tools"...button.
  2. Press the "Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  3. Press only the Save List...button.
  4. Press the "Save" button. The file "uninstall_list.txt" will be saved in your HJT folder.
  5. Copy and paste the contents of "uninstall_list.txt' in your next reply.

Step 2.
Please include in your next reply:
  1. HJT uninstall_list.txt file contents

Hi Meeks,
I didn't see anything of concern in your HJT log, so lets dig a little deeper. Please read the instructions carefully, before executing them.
If at any time you have problems performing the instructions, <STOP> and post back, with the problem.

After you have performed the steps from my first post. :) Please perform the following steps, in the order given:

Step 1.
Please download GMER by GMER. An alternate download site.
  1. Unzip it to a folder on your desktop.
  2. Double click on gmer.exe to execute.
    If asked, allow the gmer.sys driver load.
  3. If you get a warning prompt about rootkit activity ... asking if you want to run Scan, click OK.
  4. If you don't get a warning then...
    • Click the Rootkit/Malware tab at the top of the GMER window.
    • Click the Scan button.
  5. Once the scan has finished... click Copy. ... Do not close the GMER window yet...
  6. Open Notepad and paste what you copied. Ctrl+V
  7. Select "Save As" in Notepad...saving the file to your desktop as "gmerroot.txt"... then close Notepad.

    In the GMER window...
  8. Click on the >>> tab at the top of the GMER window.
    This displays the rest of the "selection" tabs for you.
  9. Click on the Autostart tab.
  10. Click on Scan button.
  11. Once the scan has finished... click Copy.
  12. Open Notepad (again) and paste what you copied. Ctrl+V
  13. Select "Save As" in Notepad...saving the file to your desktop as "gmerauto.txt"
  14. Copy and paste the contents of the files gmerroot.txt and gmerauto.txt in you next reply.

Step 2.
RSIT (Random's System Information Tool)
Please download RSIT by random/random... save it to your desktop.
  1. Double click on RSIT.exe to run it.
  2. Please read the disclaimer... click on Continue.
  3. RSIT will start running. When done... 2 logs files...will be produced.
  4. The first one, "log.txt", will be maximized
  5. The second one, "info.txt", will be minimized.
Please post both... "log.txt" and "info.txt", file contents in your next reply.
(These logs can be lengthy, so post 1 log per reply please.)

Step 3.
Please include in your next reply:
  1. GMER - gmerroot.txt and gmerauto.txt file contents
  2. RSIT - log.txt and info.txt file contents

3 Day Bump
Hello Meeks...
It has been 3 or more days since my last post to you.
  • Do you still need help with this problem?
  • Do you need more time?
  • Are you having problems understanding or following my instructions?
Just let me know what's going on otherwise...
If, after 48 hrs., you have not replied to this thread... it 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.
