Good Day srcstcbstrd,

Please copy to notepad for reference. Read CAREFULLY please the second scan instructions - MBRCheck.
There are a couple files I need examined:

Upload File/Files for testing


Please go to jotti.org or Virustotal


Copy/paste each file separately into the white box at the top:
c:\windows\is-4CR4U.exe
c:\program files\SB2010_setup.msi

Press Submit - this will submit the file for testing.
Please wait for all the scanners to finish then copy and paste the results in your next response.

Or if to busy: try later or the second link Virustotal


When ALL scanners finish, copy to notepad and then paste here.



MBRCheck

    Please download MBRCheck.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Right click on MBRCheck.exe and select " Run as administrator " to run it.
  • A window similar to this should open on your desktop:

Image

  • If you are prompted with options, enter N at the prompt and press Enter
  • Press Enter again.
  • A log will open on your Desktop ...... MBRCheck_mm.dd.yy_hh.mm.ss.txt (where mm.dd.yy_hh.mm.ss are the date and time the scan was run)
  • Please post the contents of the log in your next reply.


Post

Hey turtledove:
Could only do one of the two files with Jotti or VirusTotal. c:\program files\SB2010_setup.msi is 148Mb whereas the two sites have a 20Mb limit. I'm still trying to run it through Jotti but it is not cooperating. VirusTotal is too busy. MBRCheck log is at the bottom.
I sure hope you can find something - this piece of crap is getting slower and slower. Still can't set up the printer either. Still getting the spoolsv alert. I'm almost to the point of chucking it and buying a new system.

Thanks for all the time you've spent on this. Hope to hear the results soon (and any suggestions as to what could be wrong if it isn't infected).

Good Day srcstcbstrd,

Copy these instructions please as you'll be off the internet during part of the fix.
**Vista users: Right Click, select Run as Administrator*

ComboFix - CFScript
WARNING !
This script is for THIS user and computer ONLY!
Using this tool incorrectly could damage your Operating System... preventing it from starting again!


You will not have Internet access when you execute ComboFix. All open windows will need to be closed!

  1. Please open Notepad and copy/paste all the text below... into the window:
    Code: Select all
    KILLALL::
    
    File::
    C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Programs Downloaded\FFSetup2.zip
    C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Programs Downloaded\FFSetup220.zip
    F:\Most Recent Downloads\www.HotDDL.com_NIS2010_by_IMRAN_SAMSUDEEN_.rar 
    Folder::
    C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\OpenCandy
    
    DirLook::
    C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Programs Downloaded
    F:\Most Recent Downloads
    
    
  2. Save it to your desktop as CFScript.txt
  3. Please disable any Antivirus or Firewall you have active, as shown in this topic. Please close all open application windows.
  4. Drag the CFScript.txt (icon) into the ComboFix.exe icon... as seen in the image below:

    Image

    This will cause ComboFix to run again.
    Do Not use your keyboard or mouse click anywhere in the ComboFix window, as this may cause the program to stall or crash.
    Do Not touch your computer when ComboFix is running!

    When finished... Notepad will open ... ComboFix will produce a log file called "log.txt".
  5. Please copy/paste the contents of log.txt... in your next reply.

** Enable your Antivirus and Firewall, before connecting to the Internet again! **

Post
C:\ComboFix.txt

Thank you

Whew!! I thought I was screwed. After ComboFix was done and rebooted my system, I couldn't open ANYTHING! It wasn't until a did another restart that everything came back (well at least this is working - so far). I'm still getting that incredibly nagging spoolsv.exe alert 4 or 5 times on startup. And...and...when I went to copy and paste the log to this post, the Runtime spoolsv.exe alert came back up to rear it's ugly head. When I acknowledged the alert, the screen went black and the computer froze. I had to do a hard reboot to get out of everything. I know you're doing your all but this thing is getting worse and worse - in fact, just now, while I was in the middle of 'getting worse and...' that bloody Runtime alert came back up. Here's the log:

Okay, I was in the middle of the log post when what happened above happened again. I had to close Firefox (lucky for the Session Manager app that saves everything) and start again. I'm trying one more time and then that's it. This machine is getting incredibly slow and cumbersome.
I'm sorry, but I just can't get the log copied without this infernal thing freezing up. Okay, one more time:

Nope - happened again although without the Runtime alert. As soon as I attempted to paste the log, the computer froze and I couldn't shake it loose until I closed Firefox. Is it the fault of Firefox? Who knows. Here's another try:

Nope - can't post. As soon as I paste the log, the computer freezes and it doesn't matter how long I wait, I have to close Firefox but not the whole post is saved. I'm going over to IE to try that route.

Nope, can't do it. I went over to IE and the same result. As soon as I pasted, IE froze and wouldn't respond. I even tried copying the log to a new notepad page and tried to CUT and paste but with the same dismal result. I'm sorry but my computer is obviously rebelling after all the scans and deletions of files and is acting like a little kid and holding its breath. I don't know how to get the log to you unless it is by 'private message'. Sorry.

Good evening srcstcbstrd,

I do not know why you can not post.
My best advice at this point is that it is best to save your documents that you need, not downloaded programs; and reformat the system. It has had as mentioned a rootkit/spying/info stealing virus. ESET also found an illegitimate NIS 2010. I suggest staying off such sites and P2P in the future if you want a safe and dependable machine.

Here are a couple of links once you are reformatted. Our forum here for keeping safe:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=54766 COMPUTER SECURITY - a short guide to staying safer online

For technical help should your printer problem remain after the reinstall.

Sorry I ca not assist further. Thank you for trying.

Let me know you have read this and copied the above links, I will then have the topic closed.

Thank you

Thanks turtledove - saved all the links and will try the reformat. Is there no way to load the recovery discs and just pick up the files that have been corrupted? Will the recovery program not just look and replace the bad or missing stuff?

Anyway, thanks for all your help and (don't take this the wrong way - I really mean it as a compliment) I hope to never have to hear from you again. Your help has been invaluable and I've learned quite a few things. Cheers and let's close this monster down.

Good evening srcstcbstrd,

In this case, even if it only replaced the corrupt files, due to what was found, you're best to restore back to factory condition. That is because we do not know the total amount of corrupted files.

You're welcome.
Have a good New Year.
