I got an email from a friend a couple weeks ago with a link in it that I clicked on. It took me to some obscure website and I imediately exited. The next day I got another email from this friend saying her email had been hijacked by a virus and it was sending out links which if clicked on gave you a virus. Since then, I've been getting sporatic periods where my keyboard will lag and the mouse will act funny. I did a Windows live scan and it found 2 threats that it said it was unable to remove. Here's my log:

robb2010,
-----------------------------------------------
Please Note Our Policy on the Use of P2P (Person to Person / Peer to Peer) file sharing programs
It is posted here: http://malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=33112
As a condition of receiving our help, I have included the P2P program utorrent in the removal instructions below, so we are not wasting our time.
If you have used this, you can be fairly confident this is a contributing reason your computer is infected

It's really important, if you value your PC at all, to stay away from P2P file sharing programs, like utorrent, Bittorrent, Azureus, Limewire, Vuze, Shareaza, Bitlord.
Criminals have "planted" thousands upon thousands of infections in the "free" shared files. Some of the recent infections can turn your machine into a doorstop.
It's also very important to avoid any "cracks" or "Keygens" that allow unauthorized use of programs. Besides being illegal, these files also are loaded with "planted" malware.
------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program under the Programs heading.
Right click each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, choose Uninstall/Change, and give permission to Continue:
µTorrent
HijackThis 2.0.2
Java(TM) 6 Update 17
Java(TM) 6 Update 7

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
-----------------------------------------------
Download and Install the Newest Version of HiJackThis
The Downloads for HiJackThis 2.0.4 are here: http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/
  • Choose the Installer version and save to your Desktop. It will be named HiJackThis.msi.
  • For XP, Double Click, (or for Vista/Win7, Right click and choose "Run as administrator") to install it.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and a text log file will open in notepad.
  • Make sure Notepad's Format Menu has Word Wrap Unchecked.
  • Copy/Paste the entire log to your next reply please.
  • No matter what it says in the QuickStart Guide or elsewhere, DON'T USE the "ANALYZE THIS" button.
    Its Findings can be Dangerous for your machine.
  • Please Don't have Hijackthis fix anything yet.
    Most of what it is in the log are legitimate entries, necessary for the operation of your computer.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Retrieve the List of Installed programs Using HJT
Open HijackThis, click Open The Misc Tools Section. Then scroll down the list if you need to, click Open Uninstall Manager and Save List...
The List of installed programs will automatically be saved as uninstall_list.txt in your HiJackThis folder.
In addition, the list opens in Notepad so you can also save as another name in another location if you wish.
Please paste the contents into your next reply.

So we are looking for the new HiJackThis log, and the installed programs list. Use separate replies if you prefer.
Can you tell me the exact version of Windows you have? Is it a Windows 7 Starter edition?

Thanks for the reply Askey. I am running Windows Home Premium Version 6.1. My computer originally came with Vista and this was the free upgrade that they provided when it became available.

Your Norton Internet Security is not running.
If it's just a trial, or it's not paid for, or you don't want it, proceed as follows:
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program under the Programs heading.
Right click each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, choose Uninstall/Change, and give permission to Continue:

Norton Internet Security

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.

Download a free AntiVirus Program
Download just one of these free anti-virus programs, update it and run a full scan. Have it fix anything it finds.
Consider this an Emergency until you complete it!

If you want to keep Norton Internet Security, make sure it is paid for, and updated. Then have it run a full scan and fix anything it finds.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. (Right-click and "Run as administrator")
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:

Re: 2 second delay when typing

I thought I uninstalled Norton. Although it shows up on my uninstalled list, it isn't available on the list when I go to uninstall programs in control panel. I've always found Norton to be very intrusive and difficult to remove, which is why I didn't take the free trial when I first got this computer. I am currently using Malwarebytes. I just did a quick scan with the current version and it didn't find anything. Do you recommend one of the 3 on your list over Malwarebytes?

Also, when I right click on Hijackthis, I don't get the option to "run as administrator". To run as administrator, I have to log out, then log back on in the administrator account, which I have available on my windows startup screen. Do you recommend having the admin account available as one of the users on start up? If someone hacks into my computer does this make it easier for them to access the administrator account?

I removed the registry items you indicated, downloaded and ran Temp File Cleaner. Here's the new Hijackthis log:

robb2010,
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is an excellent anti-spyware program, but it is not a replacement for an Antivirus.
Keep the Malwarebytes program.
You need exactly ONE anti-spyware and ONE Anti-Virus program.

We will remove the leftover Norton stuff and install a new Anti-Virus program now.
---------------------------------------------
Symantec did not remove everything as it should. This is a common problem.
To completely remove Norton Antivirus, Download and Run the Norton Removal Tool for your version of Windows.
It will instruct you to save your installation key. Don't bother if you are not going to re-install Norton.
http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080710133834EN&ln=en_US
Perform the DownLoad for the Norton product you had and your version of Windows (download to your desktop as it says).
On your desktop, click on Norton Removal Tool and follow the instructions.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download a free AntiVirus Program
Download just one of these free anti-virus programs, update it and run a full scan. Have it fix anything it finds.
Consider this an Emergency until you complete it!-----------------------------------------------------------

robb2010,
------------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install the latest version of Java Runtime Environment from here : http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp, and install it to your computer.
In the first section on the page, labeled JDK 6 Update 21 (JDK or JRE), click on the button labeled Download JRE. Do NOT choose the button labeled "Download JDK".
Select the Platform Windows and check the box to agree to the license.
Choose the Windows Offline installation version and click on the link.
Download it, choose Save, and save it to your desktop.
Then doubleclick it on your desktop, (or right click and choose "Run as administrator") and it will install the newest version of Java for you to use.
You can then remove the Installer from your desktop.


Let's check whether you have any other leftover infected files or settings.
This scan can take a long time (hours), but it is very thorough. Please start it when you can let it finish.
It doesn't remove anything. The report, however, is very valuable.
-----------------------------------------------------
Run an Online Kaspersky WebScan
  • Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.
  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the Program and Database downloads have finished, (may take a while), Click on My Computer under Scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  • Please post the contents of this log in your next reply.

I've tried running the Kapersky scan 3 times and each time I've gotten this message:


"Launch of the Java application is interrupted! Please establish an uninterrupted Internet connection for work with this program".

I have broadband cable received through a wireless router. Not sure what they are referring to.

Ran Kapersky scan. In the morning when I got up it said scan complete with zero infections. When I clicked on "report" it just showed a blank page so there was nothing to copy.

robb2010,
I would say your machine is clean.
Is it running OK, with no adverse symptoms?

Yes, the complaint of the keyboard and mouse delay no longer happens and my startup time is greatly reduced. Do you think this computer was infected with a virus or just leftover crap from other programs that were bogging it down?

Thanks very much for your help. It's good to know exactly what Malwarebytes was and wasn't doing, and that I'm no longer unprotected. MSE caught something this morning that I wouldn't otherwise have known about, by the way.

robb2010,
You had a lot of undesirable redirects (browser hacks), some obsolete vulnerable programs, and some Browser helpers that weren't "helping".
Now that you have those removed, and your Antivirus straightened out, you should be OK.
Be careful what you click on, and Good Luck !
