IE Opening

Unread postby mpicky » September 19th, 2009, 10:38 pm

I strictly use FF, lately, an IE window has been opening and the tabs filling up with ad sites.

I have run Malware Bytes and Spy Bot Search and Destroy, but it is still happening.
Also, when I was trying to go to Cnet to download the new SpyBot, my FF browser kept going to other sites.

One of the IE pages that keeps opening is media2.tmlatn. Googling that brought me here.

My log:
Platform: Windows Vista SP2 (WinNT 6.00.1906)

Re: IE Opening

Unread postby francis327 » September 27th, 2009, 4:26 am

Hi,
Sorry for the late reply. The forum has been busy. Some advice and reminder before we start any fixes.

Vista Advice:

All applications I ask to be used will require to be run in Administrator mode. IE: Right click on and select Run as Administrator.
The Operating System(Vista aka Windows 6) in use comes with a inbuilt utility called User Access Control(UAC) when prompted by this with anything I ask you to do carry out please select the option Allow.


1 - P2P Policy
Looking over your log, I have notice a few P2P application installed in your system

Vuze|LimeWire

I would like to bring to your attention to Malware Removal's P2P Programs Policy,
P2P programmes form a direct conduit onto your computer, their security measures are easily circumvented, and Malware writers are increasingly exploiting them to spread their wares onto your computer. Further to that, if your P2P programme is not configured correctly you may be sharing more files than you realise. There have been cases where people's Passwords, Address Books and other personal, private, and financial details have been exposed to the file sharing network by a badly configured programme.

This article from InfoWorld illustrates perfectly the dangers of a poorly configured P2P progamme.
http://www.infoworld.com/article/07/09/ ... eft_1.html

Many of the programmes come bundled with other unwanted programmes, but even the ones free of any bundled software are not safe to use.

When you use them you are downloading software from an unknown source directly onto your computer, bypassing your Firewall and Anti-Virus software. Hardly surprising then that many of these Downloads are being targeted to carry infections.


With the above policy in mind, please uninstall the following programs before we continue:
  1. Click on Start > Control Panel and double click on Programs and Features.
  2. Locate Vuze and click on the Uninstall button to uninstall it.
  3. Repeat for LimeWire.
  4. Close Control Panel when done.


2 - OTL
Please download the OTL by OldTimer
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt.
      Note:These logs can be located in the OTL. folder on you C:\ drive if they fail to open automatically.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply. You may need two posts to fit them both in.


3 - GMER
Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here.
  • Double click the .exe file. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent

Due to 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.
