Hijacked MSIE8, google redirect, and disabled scanners.

Unread postby ISAWHIM » September 8th, 2009, 9:31 pm

OS: Windows XP Home
MSIE 8 (Hijacked, Java client dies on load.)
Google links (JUMP: redirected) "Actually says JUMP in URL for a moment"
HOST file (Clean)
Google Chrome (Works fine)
FireFox (Works fine)

Running programs: (They still function, just not completely.)
AntiVir Personal (Actively scanning every file READ/WRITE. Demand scan ALL, finds nothing.)
Avast (Active scanning services seem to run, main program dies.)
Win32Diag (Runs fine, have logs)
Gmer (Runs 90%, dies on some scan, not sure which one.)
dds.scr (Extracts to TEMP, runs "Find.exe", files disapear and find.exe goes dormant. No action, no reports.)
Mbam (Dies on "Full scan". Have partial log.)
RootRepeal (Scans all, but dies on "Files". Have other reports. Hidden = no results.)
SUPERAntiSpywar (Runs, only finds cookies and tracking images.)
Antivir_rootkit (Runs, only finds "SecuROM" {NULL} and two other SecuROM listings.)
AVG8 (Died on scan, will retry install if it is requested. Was actively running while infected for weeks. Scanning all files.)
TrendMicro Online (Found four files, died trying to remove them.)
TrendMicro Offline (Died while scanning.)

Prior removals:

Tried all of the suggestions in the forums, but my limited log ability does not reflect in comparison to the large logs which others are able to provide. I have played with every form of access permissions setting, attempting to let the programs live long enough to produce a log. Seems the LOG is the common killer. The programs that log as they scan, produce a partial file. The programs that wait until they finish, never log a thing, because they never finish.

Logs will not all fit in the post, I need to attach or you have to tell me which ones to post. (You might want to create a program that removes useless info. A simple javascript program can remove unwanted data.)

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so that we can give you appropriate instructions, and this information is provided by a HijackThis log.

This thread will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:-
  • A HijackThis log.
  • Details of the problems you're experiencing.
  • Any messages or error codes you may have got.

If for any reason you can't run HijackThis, please let us know in your post.
