Hi

This is a similar thread to a couple others I have seen. First symptom - cannot access websites from google searches - the browser gets a pop up to various sites - not all of them particularly wholesome.

The nasty thing is that access to almost ANY anti virus and anti malware sites result in the generic screen for connection problem. The previous posts suggested using Malwarebytes and Spybot. I was able to bring home a copy of Spybot and unfortunately before you can run it, it must go get the latest updates, and you can't access them so the program is useless. I haven't been able to get a copy of Malwarebytes - will it be the same scenario there?

I have been able to download and run Hijack This but of course I cannot upload the results for analysis. Below is a copy of the log I got. I was able to download and purchase Stop Sign antivirus and malware software - it continues to be updated but has not fixed the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks

Please download ComboFix by sUBs from HERE or HERE

  • You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
  • Physically disconnect from the internet.
  • Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
  • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log
  • Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Note:
Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Those links are unavailable to me in the present condition due to the virus.

Can you get to another pc and download it?

==

Can you please do the following.

===============

Scan with HijackThis and then place a check next to all the following, if present:


O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [brastk] C:\WINDOWS\system32\brastk.exe (User 'SYSTEM')
O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [brastk] C:\WINDOWS\system32\brastk.exe (User 'Default user')
O4 - Startup: winlogon.lnk = ?

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {9819CC0E-9669-4D01-9CD7-2C66DA43AC6C} - (no file)

O20 - Winlogon Notify: __c00F4650 - C:\WINDOWS\system32\__c00F4650.dat (file missing)


Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

files...

C:\WINDOWS\system32\brastk.exe

-

Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in Safe Mode by doing the following:

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.

Select the first option to run Windows in Safe Mode hit enter.

-

Reboot.

===============

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.

Completed your instructions, here is the log file.

Explorer seems to running faster.

Could not access the avg site from google and the google search took a LONG time.

I think the go.google thing is gone, but access to anti virus and malware sites is still a no go.

just wondering, when I was searching for combo fix earlier, there seemed to be some buzz about the program actually introducing malware on some computers, something about a root kit. comments before I download and use it?

I got to the uploading.com site, there was no obvious link to the combo fix program (no "hand" when I moved the mouse over the download area. Now, if I try to go back to that site, it's blocked - it's like this virus is alive and learning as it goes.

Nothing 'bad' about combofix that I am aware of. Have been advising it's use for over a year :).

Download the HostsXpert.
Run it and press "Restore M$ Hosts File" and press "OK". Exit Program.
Note that if you have a custom host file, this will remove it.

Try the download link now.

Did the HostsXpert thing, then went to the uploading site, when I tried to download Combo I got the no connection screen again. I am going to try to get this from a friend tomorrow and run from a thumb drive.

I was able to install malwarebytes' off a thumb drive, ran it, it fixed a bunch of nasty sounding trojans and root kits. Below is the log file, everything seems to be back to normal, was able to update AVG OK, the browser is running a LOT faster. Do you still recommend going with Combofix?
