Hi there,

I got a nasty spyware that installed a number of different malwares and other nasties on my computer. I unplugged the network and ran AVG and MalwareBytes immediately, full scans. I then ran spybot search & destroy after multiple scans of the aforementioned continued to pull up the same problems that it repeatedly repaired.

Unfortunately, now my computer will boot to the windows Xp login screen. However, after selecting a user account --administrator or not-- the computer immediately flashes to that dreaded blue screen, and only for a second or maybe two, before forcing a restart. Rinse and repeat. Thank goodness it still works in safe mode!

I did verify that I do not have two firewalls running at the same time. MalwareBytes and AVG are not turning up any new nasties either. So unplugging the network did that. It's just that now...

Here's my hijack this log. Anyone have any good words of advice?

I'm using an Acer Laptop Aspire 5670, windows XP SP3

Boot into safe mode with networking again and do the following;

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.html) to your desktop.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure to checkmark the Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
* Post the log back here.

Make sure that you restart the computer.

The log can also be found here:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
Or at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt

Post new HJT log.

Crunchie - Malwarebytes and me have spent a lot of quality time together lately. I did run it again in safe mode before making my thread and it turned up nothing new.

That surprises me looking at the amount of malware in your log. Please tell me the version of MBA-M you are using and the database version.

Malware Bytes is version 1.34 and I updated it again today!

However, when I ran it again, and I had run it just thirty minutes or less before posting this thread, it found more threats. It became apparent to me yesterday that whatever this threat was, my programs were not finding it and it was repopulating itself.

So I have literally just run Malwarebytes, restarted, and made a hijack this log. It looks like so:

The log from MBA-M would be helpful too.

Please do not wrap your log in quotes. It affects the tool I use. Code tags are fine, or simply just paste the log with no tags.

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.

Run Combofix ONCE only!!

Hi Crunchie,

I downloaded both ATF and ComboFix. I started by clearing out all my files as instructed. Unfortunately, running combofix leads me to my original problem. I went to bleeping computer and attempted some basic troubleshooting, insuring via tutorials that any virus programs were disabled, which they were. I went to Add/Remove programs on my control panel to ensure there were no other anti-virus programs anywhere here I wasn't aware of. There were none.

The only information the blue screen gives me, that I have time to copy, is "Page Fault in non paged area" this elads to a shut down.

I ran malwarebytes again and HijackThis! Everytime I run malwarebytes it continues to find more of the same trojans.

Here are the logs, beginning with Hijack This.

Any advice or words of encouragement would be appreciated. I'm not sure how I got this either, I installed no strange software or downloaded strange programs or went on unsafe sites. Guess I must have the luck.

Crunchie - I earnestly wish that was my problem! Actually, I was in safe mode when I ran combo fix and that is when it crashed. Unfortunately, everything I'm doing is in safe mode (with network connectivity) because I can't get my computer to work properly outside of safe mode.

Please Run the ESET Online Scanner and post the ScanLog with your post for assistance.

  • You will need to temporarily Disable your current Anti-virus program.
  • Be sure the option to Remove found threats is Un-checked at this time (we may have it clean what it finds at a later time), and the option to Scan unwanted applications is Checked.
  • When you have completed that scan, a scanlog ought to have been created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt. Please post that log for us as directed below.

You can also try running combofix this way;


  • Physically disconnect from the internet.
  • Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields)
  • Click on your START button and choose Run. Then copy/paste the entire content of the following quotebox (Including the "" marks and the Symbols) into the run box.

    "%userprofile%\desktop\ComboFix.exe" /KillAll


  • Click OK and this will start ComboFix.
  • When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to a Notepad File and include it in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log.

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

* Re-enable all the programs that were disabled prior to the running of ComboFix.

* Post the following logs/Reports:


  • ComboFix.txt
  • Fresh HijackThis log run after all the other tools have performed their cleanup.

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.
