Hi Guys and thank you in advance for any assistance offered.

I appear to have a 'Blinkx' redirect Trojan virus on my laptop. Navigating to Google and to known website urls is fine, but links from Google SERPS just re-direct me to Blinkx sites. Here are my HiJackThis and Unistall logs as requested.

I am running Wondow 7 .. all latest patches and latest JAVA.

As you can see Avast Anti-Virus is running.

Hi Gary,

Does the redirecting issue occur in both Firefox and Internet Explorer browser?

Download GMER here by clicking download exe -button and then saving it your desktop:
  • Double-click .exe that you downloaded
  • Click rootkit-tab and then scan.
  • Don't check
    Show All
    box while scanning in progress!
  • When scanning is ready, click Copy.
  • This copies log to clipboard
  • Post log in your reply.

Hi,

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully first.

Please continue as follows:

  1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

  2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

C:\ComboFix.txt

A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

Hi .. thanks for your advice ... however I am running Wiondows 7 and Combofix advises me not to use combofix as it is beta only for Windows 7. Any further suggestions as to how to proceed please.

Thanks Gary

Hi, the combofix green status bar runs at installation but then nothing happens. I have left the computer running overnight in case something is happening in the back ground, but nothing. It doesn't seem to run on my Windows 7 installation!!

Thanks again.

Hi,

Start MBAM, update its definitions on update tab and run a quick scan (let it delete found items). Post back the report.

Check here to see if your Flash is up-to-date (do it separately with each of your browsers). If not, uninstall vulnerable versions by following instructions here. Fresh version can be obtained here.

Code: Select all
http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=48129
Collect::
c:\windows\system32\ucmhcg.dll
Reboot::



Save this as
CFScript

A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

Image

Close all browser windows and refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix2.exe (have internet connection enabled during ComboFix run).
Then post the resultant log. Is the redirecting still occuring?

Thanks Gary :)

Looks like it's time for the final steps then.

Let's uninstall ComboFix:
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now copy-paste Combofix /uninstall in the runbox and click OK



UPDATING WINDOWS AND INTERNET EXPLORER

IMPORTANT: You Need to Update Windows and Internet Explorer to protect your computer from the malware that is around on the Internet. Please go to the windows update site to get the critical updates.

If you are running Microsoft Office, or any portion thereof, go to the Microsoft's Office Update site and make sure you have at least all the critical updates installed (Free) Microsoft Office Update.

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.



The following are recommended third party programs that are designed to keep your computer clean. A link as well as a brief description is included with each item.

  • hosts file:
    • Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them.
    • In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages.
    • We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages.
    • However, it can slow down certain computers.
    • This is why using a hosts file is optional!!
    Download it here. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial here
    If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    1. Click the start button (at the lower left hand corner of your screen)
    2. Click run
    3. In the dialog box, type services.msc
    4. hit enter, then locate dns client
    5. Highlight it, then double-click it.
    6. On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    7. Click ok


Just a final reminder for you. I am trying to stress these two points.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!! Make sure you do this about every 1-2 weeks.
Make sure all of your security programs are up to date.
Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com 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.


Once again, please post and tell me how things are going with your system... problems etc.

Happy Holidays,
Blade 8)

Excellent my friend. We seem to have nailed it. Thank you very much for your help and advice. Really appreciated.
Just one issue remaining though for me is that I cannot connect to www.windowsupdate.com.

All other browsing is fine. Seems strange .. unless the service is down!

When I go to www.windowsupdate.com I am redirected to http://test.update.microsoft.com/window ... fault.aspx
