Please help with this nasty virus


Recommended Posts

Please help me figure out this nasty virus.

I had to rename MWB to tom.exe to finally load. I can load and run AVG and it comes up clean. It would not load many antivirus software apps and only loaded HiJack after running Malwarebytes. I tried loading and running SAS but got an error that "system administrator had set policies to prevent this installation.

I will post below the Malwarebytes log and the HijackThis log. The latest MWB log comes back clean but I still can not load SAS nor can I connect to the internet.

Thanks for ANY help as I've been working on this removal for almost a week.

PS... when infected I was not able to system restore, change firewalls, load or remove certain programs, connect to the internet.

I ran quick scans on SAS, MWB and both came back clean. I'm not sure how to update them since I cannot connect to the internet. Both applications were downloaded from a clean computer from download.com yesterday. Do they still need to be updated? The computer has AVG which was also loaded yesterday but can't be updated due to no connection.

When I try to change the firewall connections, I get:

Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?

if I click yes, I get:

Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service.

Here is the latest HiJack log.

Hi and Welcome to the Malwarebytes' forum.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune

  • Close Internet Explorer and any other open browsers
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser

  • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click
  • No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser

  • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Reboot

Next, download this Antirootkit Program to a folder that you create such as C:\ARK, by choosing the "Download EXE" button on the webpage.

Disable the active protection component of your antivirus by following the directions that apply here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Next, please perform a rootkit scan:

  • Double-click the randonly name EXE located in the C:\ARK folder that you just downloaded to run the program.
  • When the program opens, it will automatically initiate a very fast scan of common rootkit hiding places.
  • When the scan is finished (a few seconds, click the Rootkit/Malware tab,and then select the Scan button.
  • Leave your system completely idle while this longer scan is in progress.
  • When the scan is done, save the scan log to the Windows clipboard
  • Open Notepad or a similar text editor
  • Paste the clipboard contents into a text file by clicking Edit | Paste or Ctl V
  • Exit the Program
  • Save the Scan log as ARK.txt and post it in your next reply. If the log is very long attach it please.

Please download Combofix from one of these locations:

HERE or HERE

I want you to rename Combofix.exe as you download it to a name of your choice such as parachute.exe

Notes:

  • It is very important that save the newly renamed EXE file to your desktop.
  • You must rename Combofixe.exe as you download it and not after it is on your computer.
    You may have to modify your browser settings if you use Firefox, so you can rename Combofix.exe as you download it. To do that:
    • Open Firefox
    • Click Tools -> Options -> Main
    • Under the downloads section check the button that says "Always ask me where to save files".
    • Click OK

    [*]For Internet Explorer:

    • Choose to save, not open the file
    • When prompted - save the file to your desktop, and rename it anything with an .exe extension on the end.

Here is a tutorial that describes how to download, install and run Combofix more thoroughly. Please review it and follow the prompts to install Recovery Console if you have not done that already:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Very Important! Temporarily disable your antivirus and antimalware real-time protection and any script blocking components of them or your firewall before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix and even remove onboard components so it is rendered ineffective:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Also, disable your firewall!

You can enable the Window firewall in the interim, until the scan is complete.

Note: The above tutorial does not tell you to rename Combofix as I have instructed you to do in the above instructions, so make sure you complete the renaming step before launching Combofix.

Running Combofix

In the event you already have Combofix, please delete it as this is a new version.

  • Close any open browsers.
  • Close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

1. Double click on the renamed combofix.exe (parachute.exe) & follow the prompts.

2. When finished, it will produce a logfile located at C:\ComboFix.txt

3. Post the contents of that log in your next reply with a new hijackthis log.

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause your system to stall/hang. Do not proceed with the rest of the fix if you fail to run combofix.

Please post C:\ARK.txt and C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
