Ok, so I have a computer mysteriously and quite interestingly infected with the Spyware.Ispynow . The usual "Windows Security Center" Pop-up shows, and when you try to close it, IE7 comes up but immediately crashes itself or freezes the whole computer. I
tried running IE7 to download Malwarebytes to scan it, but no luck. The only site that worked was Google, and every search I had resulted in the usual behaviour of redirecting to go.google (and at one point some not so child friendly sites). The wireless won't pick up any connections, so I'm plugged in directly, and the Windows Firewall service is disabled. Also, AVG is being blocked from updating, though that probably doesn't matter too much.

The really wierd part is that after retrieving Malwarebytes from my trusty flash drive and downloading HijackThis through firefox portable, which by the way, seemed to work normal except that it crashed incredibly often, Malwarebytes would not install. I checked the process list and I saw at least three instances of mbam-setup.exe, I'm guessing from the three times I tried to run it. The one thing I was able to do was open the startup manager and disable some unfamiliar startup entries, which seemed to have surpressed the "Windows Security Center" Pop-up and allowed me to browse for the most part in IE7. Still, it seems to be disabling my firewall and blocking some of my connections.

I already have a Hijackthis log that I can post when necessary, and i could attach a list/screenshot of the startup values I disabled as well if that would help.

Thanks in advanced for the time, I really appreciate you guys

Please post that Hijackthis log, you have more than Ispynow on the machine, I think. Delete the copy of MBAM installer [mbam-setup.exe] from your machine, load in a fresh copy from your flashdrive, rename the MBAM installer to mybam-setup.exe, run it. It should work. Then:
-ensure that it is set to update and start, else start it via the icon.
Select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan; the application will guide you through the remaining steps.
ENSURE that EVERYTHING found has a CHECKMARK against it, then click Remove Selected.
If malware has been found [and removed] MBAM will automatically produce a log for you... do not click the Save Logfile button.
When it completes examine the log: if some files are listed as Delete on Reboot then restart your machine before continuing.
Post the Notepad log [it is also saved under Logs tab in MBAM].

Ok, I got MBAM to install, but it was like pulling teeth. I renamed the file and was surprised that it even opened, because before, the process would register but I wouldn't even see a window. This time, the window popped up right away with the renamed file, and I thought I was golden. However, the installation process kept freezing. I opened the task manager and noticed that in addition to mymbamsetup.exe, there were several instances of mbam.exe already open, before the installation had completed. After waiting a few minutes to see if it would clear up, I simply killed all of the extra mbam.exe processes, and the installation crept forward to about 80%. I checked the process list again, and two more had popped up. I deleted these, and the program finished installing successfully. I clicked Finish with the Update and Run buttons checked. The install process ended, but mbam.exe reappeared and nothing happened. Of course, killing it this time would be killing the program itself, as there was only one instance. I never found out though, because the computer froze. I restarted and tried to open and run MBAM again, but the same thing happened. I opened in safe mode, and still, the program would not run. So that's where I am now.

I have the option of removing this laptop's hard drive and slaving it. Would that allow MBAM to run the same? I've only ever used it on computers I was working on.

Anyways, that said, here is the HijackThis log

-IMPORTANT! : disconnect from the web, turn off your Antivirus, Antispyware and Firewall for the duration of this scan. Don't forget to reset them before you go back on the web!
- to run it dclick the Combofix.exe icon and follow the prompts to start it. When finished, it will produce a log, C:\Combofix.txt - post that log in your next reply.
A word of caution - do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs reboot to restore the desktop.

I found the entry and deleted and was getting ready to start the ComboFix when the computer froze. I restarted and it hung on the welcome screen twice before the third reboot got it back to the desktop. I tried HijackThis again with the presumption that the entry would recreate itself on restart. It did, so I deleted it again and the system reacted normally. But when I tried to start the comboFix it showed the process in task manager but nothing happened again.

I don't know about you, but this hanging game is getting old pretty quick with me.

What do you suppose I do?

Edit:// Apparently this bug hates the Windows Explorer Search Feature as well. I just accidentally hit search in a My Documents window and the whole computer froze again

Restart your sys in Safe Mode, delete that file C:\WINDOWS\system32\mst120.dll, and then run Combofix while still in Safe Mode.

0

its running in safe mode now, thank god, but I'm getting a message that says:

"Combo Fix has detected that this machine does not have the windows recovery console.

It would be in your BEST INTEREST to have it installed now. Would you like to do so. Note -* This will require an internet connection

0

We can ignore that. Nice to have it installed though, in any case. Does not take up much disk space. But the installation cd carries it, and is not too inconvenient.

0

ok it detected rookit activity and rebooted. Should I put it back into safe mode or should I let it start up completely. And is that it? or will it keep running. Or do I need to start it again?

EDIT:// Perhaps I should stop asking so many questions and just let you help me =p

EDIT:// Ok scratch that. Like I said, getting ahead of myself. It started itself back up already. =p I should be more patient.

0

Yay. Briefly scanning over the results I liked what I saw. I recognized a few of the startup values I had disabled a few days ago in the deleted section. Still I am no expert (or beginner for that matter), and thus I hand it over to you =]

K, as I thought, there was a rootkit attached to that spyware, which hid it.
I must stop for 20 mins, will get back to you within the half hour.

ah, no worries. Take your time, I'm headed to sleep in a moment anyways. I'll check back tomorrow morning and see how things are going.

Thank you very much for your help, I was thoroughly impressed with your quick response time =]

Nice!
==Again please disconnect from the web, turn off your Antivirus, Antispyware and Firewall for the duration of this scan:
Copy the text in the box to a notepad [format/wordwrap unchecked] and save as CFScript.txt to where you saved Combofix -that is, to your desktop.

Killall::

File::
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\TDSSrfpc.sys
c:\windows\000002_.tmp

Driver::
TDSSrfpc

Service::
TDSSSERV

Registry::
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\ControlSet001\Services\TDSSserv.sys]

Good. Now drag the CFScript.txt icon onto the Combofix icon on your desktop. Combofix will start, let it run, if your firewall prompts then allow all; post the log.
And could you now try to install and run MBAM, please? Update and run the Quick scan.

Beautiful, well the processes in the first hijackthis log that were causing problems are gone, which is good.

Just wait for Crunchie or judy, or even gerbil, and either of them, if not all of them will confirm if the log is clean. If not, they will recommend necessary actions needed to be taken.

At least it has fixed the previous problem :)

Cohen :)

done =]. Post new logs?

No, that should be all, whoost. Play safe out there... :)
Basically, there should be no need to have anything in the internet trusted zone because that bypasses certificate checking. Safe sites are safe by definition, so no need to have them in there.

Thank you all, very very much =]. Oh I do play safe, this was caused while I was away and not on my own computer, and I will be having a little chitchat with the culprit, though it's still unclear where exactly this mishap came from. By the way, windows firewall was disabled during this predicament because the firewall is controlled by the registry, right? Since obviously my best efforts to teach safe computer habits are not fool-proof ('build a better idiot' and whatnot), could you tell me if you deem it necessary to install a 3rd party firewall, and if so, which one?

1

Sure. I use Comodo Firewall Pro [it's free... they get their money from certifying secure sites].. but it will drive the casual puter user nuts. It is very comprehensive, possibly the best; you can spend hours working out its capabilities, and it is not set n ferget. But it is very good.
ZoneAlarm is good, and not demanding at all.
I can only speak from personal experience... I am not a reviewer; these are things I use/have used.

excellent dedication and speediest response I've ever been given

lovely. Yes, Comodo was quite the adventure when I tried it. I loved the control it had so much, especially the learning feature, but it drove my brothers crazy. Luckily, you seemed to anticipate this and mentioned Zone Alarm, which was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate (and trust) your recommendation, certainly =]. Thanks again for the time and dedication.
