Recently I have discovered a trojan horse or virus on my machine. I get IE popups but I am not using IE, I use Firefox. I repeatedly used spybot, Adaware and AVG to find and remove all of the aboved named infections. Newly installed Zone Alarm now stops these sites from opening.

I did a system cleanup deleting all temp files, and I used ccleaner too. I tried to download and run AVG anti-spy but it caused my computer to crash.
AVG scan now reveals no infections.

Here's my Hijackthis log:

The only thing I see here is:

O22 - SharedTaskScheduler: COM+ Service - {3C49DDAC-3DA4-4743-AF6C-5974FEAF875C} - (no file)

it's a Trojan.Faker password-stealer, but there is no file. You may fix it with HijackThis.

For antivirus solution I suggest you to use Avast Home Edition - it's free for personal use and have very good antivirus protection.

Right click on hijackthis.exe and select rename. Rename it analysethis and post another log please.

Please download VundoFix and follow on-site instructions for scan and remove.
If there is a problem, please feedback with another fresh HijackThis log.

0

I already used VundoFix last night, ran in safe mode, and it found nothing.

0

Can you please do the following.


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

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


R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2EDBF321-C359-4F43-82AC-2CEBFAADE491} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\geebx.dll

O20 - Winlogon Notify: nnnnmli - nnnnmli.dll (file missing)
O20 - Winlogon Notify: winrge32 - winrge32.dll (file missing)

O22 - SharedTaskScheduler: COM+ Service - {3C49DDAC-3DA4-4743-AF6C-5974FEAF875C} - (no file)


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

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

1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop.

  • Click on Avenger.zip to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop

2. Copy all the text (including the 'Files to delete') contained in the code box below to your clipboard by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl+C:

Files to delete:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\geebx.dll


Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

3. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

  • Under "Script file to execute" choose "Input Script Manually".
  • Now click on the Magnifying Glass icon which will open a new window titled "View/edit script"
  • Paste the text copied to clipboard into this window by pressing (Ctrl+V).
  • Click Done
  • Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

  • It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

5. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply along with a fresh HJT log by using Add/Reply

Start | Run and type in msconfig and hit ok. Go to the Startup Tab and uncheck any unnecessary programs from starting with Windows at startup. These programs will still be available for use.

Seems to be running ok. I haven't got an alert from Zone Alarm about an unknown computer trying to access my system since I did the clean up. I did a virus scan with AVG and found nothing. I did block IE from the internet zone in Zone Alarm, I will unblock it and see what happens.

I am also going to do an Ad-aware scan and also another AVG scan in Safe mode and report back.

Thanks for all your help!
