Still Infected?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am unable to update my free version of Malwarebytes (cannot connect to server) and am not able to connect to any websites using Firefox.

 

I ran a scan a couple of days ago using the version of MB that I had which brought up some infection which was removed. Subsequent scans give the all clear but I don't know if this is accurate as I am not able to download the latest database.

 

I have tried using the MBAM cleaner and reinstall, cannot connect.

 

I have ran Rkill in Windows Safe Mode which revealed no issues but I was also not able to connect to MBAM database in safe mode either.

 

I have now uninstalled Firefox and would like some help in checking my system to ensure there is no malware present and if there is, to fully remove it!

 

I've attached the files as requested.

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi Kevin,

 

I have gone through the list but encountered a few problems along the way:

 

MBAM

 

Unable to download an updated database. Scan reported no problems - report attached

 

AdwCleaner

 

Report attached

 

Junkware Removal Tool

 

Attempted to run as admin but the program was caught in a loop when trying to download an update:  closing, opening, looking for an update, repeat. Was not able to perform a scan.

 

Kaspersky

 

Scan took 3 hours but identfied 19 problems. These were removed but cannot see an obvious way to export a report? I can only view a report from inside the software so not able to attach.

 

After rebooting, I am still not able to download an updated database for MBAM, nor download an update for my other anti virus software.

 

Please let me know what I should do next.

 

Thanks!

Try the following:

 

Download RKill from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/

  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista or Windows 7/8, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • A log pops up at the end of the run. This log file is located at C:\rkill.log. Please post this in your next reply.
  • If you do not see the black box flash on the screen delete the icon from the desktop and go back to the link for the download, select the next button and try to run the tool again, continue to repeat this process using the remaining buttons until the tool runs. You will find further links if you scroll down the page with other names, try them one at a time.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

 

 

When RKill completes try Malwarebytes update again, if successful let me know, if not continue as follows:

 

Run FRST one more time, ensure all boxes are checkmarked under "Whitelist" but only Addition.txt under "Optional scan" Select scan, when done post the two logs....

1.Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from this link:

3. Open the folder where the contents were unzipped to run mbar.exe

4. Double-click on the mbar.exe file, you may receive a User Account Control prompt asking if you are sure you wish to allow the program to run. Please allow the program to run and MBAR will now start to install any necessary drivers that are required for the program to operate correctly. If a rootkit is interfering with the installation of the drivers you will see a message that states that the DDA driver was not installed and that you should reboot your computer to install it. You will see this image:

5. If you receive this message, please click on the Yes button and Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit will now restart your computer. Once the computer is rebooted and you login, MBAR will automatically start and you will now be at the start screen. (If no Rootkit warning you will go from step 4 to 6.)

That database is too far back, not really worth trying, see if you can run the following:

 

Read the following link before we continue and run Combofix:

ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

Next,

Download Combofix from either of the following links :-

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

http://www.infospyware.net/antimalware/combofix/

  • Ensure that Combofix is saved directly to the Desktop <--- Very important
  • Disable all security programs as they will have a negative effect on Combofix, instructions available here  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html if required. Be aware the list may not have all programs listed, if you need more help please ask.
  • Close any open browsers and any other programs you might have running
  • Double click the combofix.gif icon to run the tool (Vista or Windows 7 users right click and select "Run as Administrator)
  • Instructions for running Combofix available here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix if required.
  • If you are using windows XP It might display a pop up saying that "Recovery console is not installed, do you want to install?" Please select yes & let it download the files it needs to do this. Once the recovery console is installed Combofix will then offer to scan for malware. Select continue or yes.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" for further review



****Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze ****

Note: ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser.
Note: Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell us when you reply. Read here  http://thespykiller.co.uk/index.php?page=20 why  disabling autoruns is recommended.

*EXTRA NOTES*


  •    
  • If Combofix detects any Rootkit/Bootkit activity on your system it will give a warning and prompt for a reboot, you must allow it to do so.
       
  • If Combofix reboot's due to a rootkit, the screen may stay black for several minutes on reboot, this is normal
       
  • If after running Combofix you receive any type of warning message about registry key's being listed for deletion when trying to open certain items, reboot the system and this will fix the issue (Those items will not be deleted)



Post the log in next reply please...

Kevin
