Infected, yet no infections found

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm hoping you can help me. I usually use MBAM and it takes care of any problems I have, but now I have something new.

I've been experiencing browser redirects when using Google through Firefox and browser crashes with both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Windows Security Center has also been popping up telling me my firewall is off. I went through the control panel to see what the settings were and it's indeed off. When I try to turn it back on, it turns off again a little later. Also, all of my restore points appear to be gone now.

I went to MBAM to run a scan, but it will not let me update. When I try, the program crashes and closes. I ran a scan without updates and it found nothing. I then ran a Spybot Search and Destroy scan and again, nothing showed up. I checked Firefox again and I still get redirects when I search. So then I went to Avast and tried to update before scanning, and it wouldn't let me update that either. I ran a thorough scan with Avast anyway, without updating, and it also found nothing.

I've taken a look at my Hijack This log, but I can't see anything out of the ordinary.

If anyone can give me a clue what nasty piece of work I might have picked up, I'd be thankful.

Here are my MBAM and HJT logs (without the latest update in MBAM's case, because I can not get it to update without crashing).

Since I'm pretty sure you can't run regedit, Download registrar manager:


Install it and launch it.

In the Addressfield on top in Registrar Manager, enter:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\drivers32

This will Highlight/select the key "Drivers32" on the left.

Rightclick that key and select "Export".

See the image below how it should look like: drivers32.gif

Save the export to your desktop. In registrar manager, it saves it by default as regfile.reg, so that file should be on your desktop now.

Rightclick that file (regfile.reg) and select to edit. This will open it in notepad.

Copy and paste the contents of it in your next reply.

Thank you for the reply!

Here's what you requested.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\drivers32]





















































[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\drivers32\Terminal Server]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\drivers32\Terminal Server\RDP]

I want a sample of it first, so navigate to and zip up the following file:


To zip the file, rightclick it and select > send to > zipped folder

This will create the zipped folder grnoau

Then go to here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showforum=55

Start a new thread there (for example, for miekiemoes). Post the url to this thread/url and attach the zipped grnoau there.

Let me know once you've done that.

Then we'll start with removal (want to have a sample first) :)

Thank you for the file.. Detection for this newest variant was added 10 mins ago, but since you can't update mbam anyway, you'll have to perform the following instead:

* Open hijackthis, click 'config' (bottom right)

Choose the tab 'misc Tools' on top.

Choose 'delete a file on reboot'

In the field, copy and paste next:


Click open.

Hijackthis will tell you that this file will be deleted on next reboot and if you want to reboot now. Click Yes/ok

Your system should reboot now.

Then, Open notepad and copy and paste next present in the quotebox below in it:

(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\drivers32]


Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.

It should look like this: reg.gif

Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Let me know in your next reply how things are now.

Thank you! So fast! :)

I did what you told me to, and I tried to update MBAM and it was successful! I was also able to update Avast as well. I also did a few random web searches and so far, no more redirects. The Windows Security Alerts was still saying my firewall was off, so I went back through the control panel and turned it back on. So far, so good. It hasn't gone off yet.

Good to hear. :)

It should be OK now. Any idea how you got infected? From where? This because you'll get infected with this one via legitimate sites (injected script). Any idea what site?

Thank you so much for all of your help!

I'm actually a little embarrassed to say where I think I got it from. No, not a porn site :) , but a Russian site about an old, cancelled soap opera, Santa Barbara, that I listened to music clips from the show on. I'm a "closeted" soap fan, you see. :) I visited the site one day last week and that day my Avast went crazy. It said it had deleted the virus it detected, but I guess it didn't.

I'm going to install no-script to keep that from happening again and I won't be going back to it anytime soon.

Ok, thanks for the feedback :)

It may be a good idea to contact the website owner there, because I'm pretty sure s(he) is not aware of the fact that the site got compromised.

Ok, thank you I will.

I just noticed my firewall blinked off again (I got the balloon message that no firewall is turned on). Any ideas why it might be doing this, or any suggestions for a better firewall than just the Windows one?

I see this leftover in your HijackThislog:

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: tezjec.dll

So check that entry and fix it.

Not sure about the Firewall notification, but that could be caused because of your Avast. I have seen that before.

However, I want to perform a doublecheck here if there's still something lurking here (from a previous infection you were dealing with), so do next please..

* Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:


Post the log from ComboFix in your next reply.

Please make sure you disable ALL of your Antivirus/Antispyware/Firewall before running ComboFix..This because Security Software may see some components ComboFix uses (prep.com for example) as suspicious and blocks the tool, or even deletes it. Please visit HERE if you don't know how.

Only a small leftover..

Open notepad and copy and paste next present in the quotebox below in it:

(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)




Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.

It should look like this: reg.gif

Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Also, from what I can see here... your Windows firewall is set to disabled here and I see an odd value present there as well with an unrecognised characterset.

Hi miekiemoes!

I did as you told me to with fix.reg with no problems and I was also able to delete the odd character set with no problems.

I downloaded and installed Comodo Firewall Protection with no problems.

Also, uninstalled Combo Fix with no problems.

I can't say thank you enough!
