I have some kind of virus that's really annoying, its popping up random IE ads to ad.103092804.com (yes, Ive done some research on this and I know it resolves to a domain etc etc).

Ive run spybot and AVG free and any other reputable tools I could get to run, but most things just close themselves automatically if I try to run them (hijack this and any system utility like msconfig or the computer management window)

so while I would love to give you a hijackthis log, I cant, can anyone help?

(system restore is off, has always been off since my first boot into windows after initial installation).

-- What is your OS?
-- Can you get any of the cleaning tools to run in Safe Mode?
-- Have you tried renaming hijackthis.exe to your name.exe or something random and then trying to run it in Normal Windows Boot? (a HJT log in Safe Mode doesn't show much)
-- Have you tried DSS from the Read Me Sticky at the very top of the Forum?

If you can answer/try the above for me, I'll let you know if I can be of assistance.

Best Luck :)

-- What is your OS? - Windows XP Pro Corporate SP2 on a Macbook Pro
-- Can you get any of the cleaning tools to run in Safe Mode? - No same problem
-- Have you tried renaming hijackthis.exe to your name.exe or something random and then trying to run it in Normal Windows Boot? (a HJT log in Safe Mode doesn't show much) - Yup still closes itself
-- Have you tried DSS from the Read Me Sticky at the very top of the Forum? - Yup, I always follow all instructions in stickies before I post, always, on every forum.

*edit*

lol tricked it into running DSS by running it in Win95 compatibility mode, here's the log:

There is another process that starts itself (ive killed it recently, itll be back soon), called, ILS8e05l.exe that automatically runs iexplorer.exe and opens popups, if I end it, it closes ALL of the windows at once.

hope this helps you figure out my problem!

I'm a bit pressed for time, but let's have a look......

This looks a lot like something from the Chode family of Trojans. If that is the case, then we'll need to address the changes it likely has made to the registry. But first, let's start with the following:

-- Did you just download this? Is it legit?
C:\DOWNLO~1\Administrator.exe

-- Please Download HostsXpert and Extract it from the ZIP to its own folder
-- Run HostsXpert and Select Restore MS Hosts File and then Click OK
-- Close HostsXpert.
You might want to keep this handy tool for use in the future.
If you have issues running this, no worries - we'll do it later.


There are a few other items as well.

Run HJT and FIX the following:
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://startzone.info/h --> unless you set this. Looks scammy to me.
R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)
F3 - REG:win.ini: load=C:\WINDOWS\system32\qgekltrrd\winlogon.exe

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {E0E899AB-F487-11D5-8D29-0050BA6940E3} - (no file)

O4 - Startup: winlogon.lnk = ?

FIX those with HJT and then boot to Safe Mode and Delete this Folder ---> C:\WINDOWS\system32\qgekltrrd


Let me know how you fare with the above.

-- Then, see if you can get DSS to run fully in normal windows boot.

If DSS won't run, you could try this AT YOUR OWN RISK:
You could try running this early beta of a tool I've been writing off and on for a while. It should be safe - many of the components are not included.

Download PeekabooXP.zip and EXTRACT the PeekabooXP Folder to your C:\ Drive It needs to be there to run properly.
-- You'll need to disable your AV temporarily before you run PeekabooX. It might hang if you don't
-- Open the PeekabooXP folder on the C:\ drive and DoubleClick Run This.bat and follow the prompts.
-- A log ought to pop up in notepad - post that for me.

I'll try to check back as time permits. I'm a bit harried with work these days.

Cheers :)

Wow, that was awesome, like magic man. My windows stopped dissappearing, I could finally clean up my startup and services, and I havnt seen a single IE window. Thank you for the very clear and easy to follow instructions. I learned a lot from this, and found some very valuable tools. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much.

You're welcome! Happy to help.

There are a few issues that remain to be dealt with (updating Java, etc..) plus I imagine a bit of malware cleanup as well. If you need further assistance, please post a full DSS log.

Cheers :)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ILS8e05l.exe <---this is the process that causes the popups
C:\Downloads\dss.exe
C:\DOWNLO~1\ADMINI~1.EXE <---- and I have no idea what this is

My fault there - Administrator.exe is what DSS changed Hijackthis.exe to. I don't normally see it running from Downloads Folder, hence my confusion.... No worries.


The baddies that jump out at me are these:

It would probably be easiest and "cleanest" in terms of removal if you tried running MBA-M as per the Read Me linky. It ought to be able to clean this.
Please post that log.


If you are unable to run MBA-M, then please follow the steps in the linky below to run combofix and post that log for me:

How To Use ComboFix


Will try to check back Friday evening.

MBA-M found nothing when I scanned with it.

That's odd - I fully expected MBA-M to remove those.

Well, Combofix got some of it on the first pass. Let's have a go at the little that remains:


-- Please delete your copy of ComboFix and download a fresh one to your Desktop
-- Download the attached file CFScript.txt to your Desktop as well.
-- Close ALL browser windows and then drag CFScript.txt into/over ComboFix.exe to start ComboFix.
-- Let Combofix run as before and post me that log

-- Go and Update your Java here ---> http://www.java.com/en
--> Please note that, before updating your Sun Java, you MUST remove ALL older versions that may be on your machine or you will still be vulnerable to some exploits/weaknesses such as VUNDO which may target and force execution on older runtime environments.
-- Do this by going into Add or Remove Programs and removing any versions that differ from the current version listed at the Java site. They may look similar to the following:
Java 2 Runtime Environment SE v1.4.2.06
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 2
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1
Java(TM) 6 Update 2


Please post me the new ComboFix log and let me know if you are still having problems.
