My first indication that something was wrong was that whenever I opened up my browser (firefox), another firefox process would appear in my task bar instead of opening in the same firefox thread as usual.

Then, another tab would open up automatically each time I opened firefox a tab would open offering to update my browser with the path "*.src-click-download.xyz/ + string of characters". The asterisk is there because each time, that part of the url would be different.
I boot-time scanned my computer with avast, which finally removed what I thought had been the source of the problem (yahoo! powered), but the problem persisted. I then used adwcleaner, which stopped that page from appearing every time I open it.

However, firefox still opens a new slot in the task bar, which indicates to me that the root of the problem is still there. I'm all out of ideas, so I was hoping you guys could help me with this.

Hello marionthorne,

Welcome to the forum! :)

I am pgmigg and I'll be helping you with any malware problems.

Before we begin, please read and follow these important guidelines, so things will proceed smoothly.
  1. The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable!
  2. You must have Administrator rights, permissions for this computer.
  3. DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  4. DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process until we are done as well as
    DO NOT Remove, or Scan with anything on your system unless I ask. This adds more items to be researched.
    Extra Additions and Removals of files make the analysis more difficult.
  5. Only post your problem at (1) one help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  6. Print each set of instructions if possible - your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  7. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  8. Only reply to this thread, do not start another one. Please, continue responding, until I give you the "All Clean!" :cheers:
    Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

I am currently reviewing your logs and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions. In the meantime...

Note: If you haven't done so already, please read this topic ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.

Please read all instructions carefully before executing and perform the steps, in the order given.
lf you have any questions or problems executing these instructions, <<STOP>> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem.

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

Hello marionthorne,

P2P Advisory!
IMPORTANT: There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs installed on your computer.
µTorrent
As long as you have the P2P program(s) installed, per Forum Policy, I can offer you no further assistance.
If you choose NOT to remove the program(s), please indicate that in your next reply and this topic will be closed.

Otherwise, please perform the following steps:

Step 1.
Remove P2P Program
  1. Please press the Windows Key + R.
  2. Enter appwiz.cpl into the text box and click OK.
  3. Locate the following programs:
    µTorrent
  4. Press the Uninstall or Uninstall/Change button and carefully follow any prompts to uninstall the program.
    • Take care to read through any prompts completely! Some uninstallers may attempt to trick you into keeping the program.
    • Do this for every program listed.
    • Don't worry if you can't find one of the programs. Just be sure to let me know in your reply.
  5. When all listed programs have been uninstalled, please close Control Panel
  6. Once finished reboot (restart) your computer.
By using any form of P2P networking to download files you can anticipate infestations of malware to occur. The P2P program itself may be safe but the files may not - use P2P at your own risk!
Keep in mind that this practice may be the source of your current malware infestation.
Reference... siting risk factors, using P2P programs: How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

Step 2.
Run CKScanner
  1. Please download CKScanner from here
  2. Important: - Save it to your Desktop.
  3. Double-click CKScanner.exe and click Search For Files.
  4. After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
  5. A message box will verify the file saved.
  6. Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your Desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

Step 3.
TSG - SysInfo utility
  1. Please download SysInfo.exe and save it to your Desktop.
  2. Right click SysInfo.exe and select "Run As Administrator" to run it... if UAC prompts, please allow it.
  3. The small square window will be opened with already highlighted text - please right click on it, select Copy and then paste it in your next post.

Then:
Please tell me is this computer used for business purposes and/or connected to a business network?
I need to know it - so I can provide the proper instructions.

Please post each log separately to prevent it being cut off by the forum post size limiter.
Check each after you've posted it to make sure it's all present, if any log is cut off you'll have to post it in sections...

Don't post anything as attachments unless I will ask you about it specifically!

Please include in your next reply:
  1. Do you have any problems executing the instructions?
  2. Your decision about P2P programs
  3. Contents of CKFiles.txt log file
  4. Contents of TSG - SysInfo utility
  5. Answer to my question related to type of using of your computer

Thanks,
pgmigg
