Rootkits.


Recommended Posts

Hello. I've been having problems with my PC while playing videogames. About 5 to 10 minutes into playing any videogame, my computer hard locks and freezes and produces a continuous buzzing sound at which point I need to reboot the computer. I've run stress tests, memory tests etc. No errors detected. So I figured it may be a malware problem. Malwarebytes detects nothing, MBAR detects nothing. However, Rogue Killer 64 detects rootkits. I googled and discovered that rootkits can cause hardlock freezes when playing videogames. I've attached the Rogue Killer 64 report to this post.

Hello and welome,

 

P2P/Piracy Warning:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

 

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.


Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

 

Next,

 

Download Security Check by screen317 from either of the following:

http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/SecurityCheck.exe or http://screen317.changelog.fr/SecurityCheck.exe

Save it to your Desktop. (If your security alerts either accept the alert, or turn the security off while Secuirity Check runs)
Double click SecurityCheck.exe (Vista or Windows 7/8 users right click and select "Run as Administrator") and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box. Press any key when asked.
A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

If Security Check will not run or you get an alert saying it is not supported, Re-boot your PC then try again...

 

Next,

 

Scan with Gmer rootkit scanner

 

Please download Gmer from Here by clicking on the "Download EXE" Button.

 

  • Double click on the randomly named GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent.
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
     
            Sections
            IAT/EAT
            Show All ( should be unchecked by default )
     
  • Leave everything else as it is.
  • Close all other running Programs as well as your Browsers.
  • Click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the Save.. button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop.

 

Please post the content of the ark.txt here.

 

 

**Caution**

Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

 

**If GMER crashes** Follow the instructions here and disable your security temporarily…

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin...

Thanks for the logs, RK log looks much better with emulation drivers disabled. I assume proxy server is known to you, is maybe Spybot security?

 

Run the following please:

 

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.


Double click on Adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Scan
Once the scan is done, click on the Clean button.
You will get a prompt asking to close all programs. Click OK.
Click OK again to reboot your computer.
A text file will open after the restart. Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
You can also find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[sn].txt. Where n in the scan reference number

 

Next,

 

thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.


Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts. (re-enable when done)
Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

 

Next,

 

Go here http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ and have Adobe Flashplayer checked. Accept new version if required.

There maybe an offer of Google Chrome etc, untick those options if offered...

 

Next,

 

Post logs from AdwCleaner and JRT. Try video game see if the issue is cleared...

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin...
