Malware slowing computer and redirecting search links

Unread postby str8fromdec » October 26th, 2010, 6:25 pm

I've been having serious malware problems lately. I've run AVG and Malwarebytes in safe mode and while it finds some of the problem files, I continue to have problems. Random windows pop-up when I'm using the internet and search links redirect to sales sites.

Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the HJT forum and wait for help.


Unless informed of in advance, failure to post replies within 3 days will result in this thread being closed.


Hi str8fromdec

I'm Gary R, I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

Before we start: Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.

Please observe these rules while we work:
  • Perform all actions in the order given.
  • If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  • Stick with it till you're given the all clear.
  • Remember, absence of symptoms does not mean the infection is all gone.
  • Don't attempt to install any new software (other than those I ask you to) until we've got your computer clean.
  • Don't attempt to clean your computer with any tools other than the ones I ask you to use during the cleanup process. If your defensive programmes warn you about any of those tools, be assured that they are not infected, and are safe to use.
If you can do these things, everything should go smoothly.
It may be helpful to you to print out or take a copy of any instructions given, as sometimes it is necessary to go offline and you will lose access to them.


Please go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and Uninstall the following:

BitTorrent
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6


Reboot your computer when you've uninstalled them both.

Next

Download ComboFix from one of these locations and save it to your Desktop: (if you already have a copy of Combofix, delete it and use this version)

Link 1
Link 2

IMPORTANT !!! ComboFix.exe must be run from your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, they may otherwise interfere with Combofix. There are details for disabling many programmes here.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Image

Once Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Image

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it will produce a log for you.

Please include this log in your next reply. ......... (it can also be found at C:\ComboFix.txt)

IMPORTANT
  • Do not use your computer while Combofix is running.
  • Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
  • If you've lost your Internet connection when Combofix has completely finished, re-start your computer to restore it.
If you have any problems with these instructions, a detailed Tutorial for how to use Combofix is available here.

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.
