Feeling infected

Unread postby Awemni » November 19th, 2010, 1:10 am

My computer's been acting pretty strange lately - I don't exactly know if it's something malicious, but programs are freezing quite often, general problems, etc.
Thanks for the help in advance.

Hi Awemni,
Sorry for the delay.
If you still need help, and are not receiving it elsewhere, please proceed as follows:
-----------------------------------------------
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?p=491394#p491394
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 principal 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, Frostwire, Limewire, Vuze, Shareaza, Bitlord.
(Limewire has just been shut down by the courts).
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.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable Windows Defender
Open Windows Defender by clicking the Start button, All Programs, and then Windows Defender.
If you don't see it in the Programs List, you can access it using the Control Panel.
Click Tools, and then click Options.
Under Administrator options, clear the Use Windows Defender check box, and then click Save.
Administrator permission is required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. (Right-click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7)
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE= ... on&pf=cnnb
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE= ... on&pf=cnnb
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE= ... on&pf=cnnb
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE= ... on&pf=cnnb
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [uTorrent] "C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe"
O23 - Service: McAfee Security Scan Component Host Service (McComponentHostService) - McAfee, Inc. - C:\Program Files\McAfee Security Scan\2.0.181\McCHSvc.exe

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
------------------------------------------------
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
Java(TM) 6 Update 7
McAfee Security Scan Plus

In addition, you have TWO Antivirus apps running at the same time.
This will reduce your protection, and may make your system unstable.
Choose to keep either avast! Free Antivirus or Norton Internet Security and Uninstall the other
Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
----------------------------------------------
Download and Run Temp File Cleaner (TFC.exe)
Download Temp File Cleaner and save it to your desktop.
Double click to run it. (Right click and choose Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7)
If you have a lot of junk files to remove, it could take a while, so please be patient and let it finish.
When it's done, if it asks to Reboot, choose to do so. This will remove files that could not be removed while Windows was running.
After Restart, log back in to your usual account.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HiJackThis Log
Start HijackThis (right-click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7)
Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl +A), copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the log contents into a reply.

I've gone ahead and preformed the steps you requested.
After uninstalling the Java Update thing, WinPatrol informed me that a new program was added to my start up programs, but I checked no.

Here's the HJT log:

Awemni,
I would advise against using any part of Auslogics that works on the registry. It could permanently damage your system.
Don't ever use any registry boosters, registry optimizers, registry cleaners. They don't do any good, but could do lots of harm.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. (Right-click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7)
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Defender] %ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe -hide
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinPatrol] C:\Program Files\BillP Studios\WinPatrol\winpatrol.exe -expressboot
O23 - Service: Norton Internet Security - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Norton Internet Security\Engine\16.0.0.125\ccSvcHst.exe (file missing)

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
---------------------------------------------
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.
http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080710133834EN&ln=en_US
Perform the DownLoad for your version of Windows (download to your desktop as it says).
On your desktop, click on Norton Removal Tool and follow the instructions.
Please Be patient. This tool removes hundreds of files and settings. It will let you know when it's done.
-----------------------------------------------------
Let's check whether you have any 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.

Let's do this one instead.
------------------------------------------
Scan with ESET online scanner:
  • Open Internet Explorer by right-clicking the IE icon (on the Start menu or quick launch) and selecting Run as administrator
  • NOTE: Internet Explorer will temporarily have administrator privileges, this is required for the scan but dangerous for normal surfing so do NOT open any other websites in IE until after the scan has finished and this window has been closed.
  • Open the ESET Online Scanner in Internet Explorer
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use. and click Start
  • Allow the ActiveX control to be installed by Internet Explorer
  • Once the ActiveX has finished loading click Start to initialize and update the scanner
  • When the Computer scan screen appears, leave Remove found threats UN-checked, but check the box next to Scan unwanted applications. Then click Scan to begin the scan.
  • Once complete and the summary page appears, press Start, copy/paste the following command into the search box and press Enter:
    notepad "C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt"
  • The log file should now appear in Notepad, copy and paste the contents in your next response.
  • Please be sure to close this Internet Explorer window before continuing.

That scan looks good.
How is the system running? Are you still getting unusual behavior?

It's running alright, albeit some other problems that are unrelated to the possible infection, though.

This started showing up, also: When I try to use Windows Update there's an update that ALWAYS fails to download. I've tried it multiple times and it still won't work. I don't know if it's essential, but it's pretty weird IMO.

I don't think they're related to malware, but if you can shed some light that'd be great. :)

Awemni,
-----------------------------------------
Check hard Drive for Errors
Open Notepad... then copy and paste the following line into Notepad:
(Notepad is in Start, Programs, Accessories)
Code: Select all
cmd  /c  chkdsk  c:  |find  /v  "percent"  >> "%userprofile%\desktop\checkhd.txt"

Now Save the NotePad file like this:
  • Click on File from the top menu bar.
  • Select Save As, use Filename: testhd.bat. and Save As Type: All Files.
  • Choose Desktop as the location
  • Click Save.
Right click on testhd.bat on your desktop and select Run As Administrator to run it.
A Command Prompt box will pop up, then close after a couple minutes.
Please post the contents of the checkhd.txt file from your desktop.
If the file is very long, just copy and paste the LAST 20 or 30 lines into your reply.

Awemni,
You may be in imminent danger of a total Hard drive failure, in which case the machine won't boot.
Better retrieve any critical files from the drive while you can.
Then do the following:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hard Disk Repair
IF Chkdsk has found any errors having to do with bad sectors in your file system, or if it reports that it cannot continue in Read-Only Mode, it needs to run a different sequence on reboot to do repairs. It can't repair the file system while Windows is running.
DO NOT START THIS SEQUENCE UNLESS YOU CAN DO WITHOUT THE MACHINE FOR AN HOUR OR TWO. It may not take very long , but could, depending on the number of files and folders.
It will not relinquish control until it is done. You cannot stop it, and it would be a BIG mistake to pull the plug.

  1. Open Notepad... then copy and paste the following into Notepad:
    Code: Select all
    cmd  /c  chkdsk  c: /F
  2. Now Save the NotePad file like this:
    • Click on File from the top menu bar.
    • Select Save As, use Filename: fixhd.bat. and Save As Type: All Files.
    • Choose Desktop as the location
    • Click Save.
  3. Right click on fixhd.bat on your desktop and select Run As Administrator to run it.
  4. You will get a message that the volume is locked, with a request to do the repair on Reboot. Answer Y
  5. Click Continue at the UAC prompt.
Go to Start, Turn Off Computer and choose Reboot
It will scan again when it boots up and make the repairs as the first part of the reboot process.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Check Hard Disk For Errors
Once the computer boots up again, please delete your original file Checkhd.txt If it's present on your Desktop.
Right click on testhd.bat on your desktop and select Run As Administrator to run it.
Click Continue at the UAC prompt.
A Command Prompt box will pop up, then close after a couple minutes.
Please post the contents of the new checkhd.txt file from your desktop.
If it's very long just post the last 30-50 lines.

Awemni,
That's better.
The Volume Bitmap note is a known false signal, and can be ignored.
Your system should be running better.
Whenever this happens, though, you need to suspect that there may be something wrong with the hard drive.
Best to have file backups for important items, and make sure you have the ability to re-install Windows on a new drive.

You do need to try the Windows Update and see if it works properly.
