Backdoor.bot keeps coming back. infecting registry value

Recommended Posts

I can usually manage to remove most infections but this one has got me stumped. I am about to reformat but I decided to post here in case someone might have an answer for me.

I am using AVG free and ZoneAlarm. I kept getting a firefox popup that directed me to a "www.blogtv.com" users page every 10 minutes or so. So I ran a Malwarebytes scan and keep returning one malware result. It is:

Backdoor.bot Registry Value HKEY_LOACAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\taskman

When I hit remove selected and then re-scan it is immediately there again. AVG does not pick this one up. I downloaded SUPERAntiSpyware free version and it found 2 threats. I removed them, rebooted and rescaned. Superantispyware picked up nothing but malwarebytes found the backdoor.bot again.

I downloaded and ran ATF cleaner and deleted everything. Rescanned with malwarebytes and it was still there.

I dont know what else to do.

Oh and malwarebytes will not update, I think it is being blocked by this virus. So I manually downloaded and installed the latest definitions (2506)

Any suggestions would be very helpful!

Welcome to Malwarebytes, the current def's are 2525, aside from that the backdoor.bot concerns me...Please follow these instructions:

Scan and post logs - read note at bottom in green

If you're having Malware related issues with your computer that you're unable to resolve.

  1. Please read and follow the instructions provided here: I'm infected - What do I do now?
  2. If needed please post your logs in a NEW topic here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs
  3. When posting logs please do not use any Quote, Code, or other tags. Please copy/paste directly into your post and do not attach files unless requested.
  • Please do not post any logs in the General forum. We do not work on any logs posted in the General forum.
  • Please do not install any software or use any removal/scanning tool except for those you're requested to run by the Helper that will assist you.
  • Using these other tools often makes the cleanup task more difficult and time consuming.
  • If you have already submitted for assistance at one of the other support sites on the Internet then you should not post a new log here, you should stay working with the Helper from that site until the issue is resolved.
  • Do not assume you're clean because you don't see something in the logs. Please wait until the person assisting you provides feedback.
  • There are often many others that require asistance as well, so please be patient. If no one has responded within 48 hours then please go ahead and post a request for review
  • NOTE: If for some reason you're unable to run some or any of the tools in the first link, then skip that step and move on to the next one. If you can't even run HijackThis, then just proceed and post a NEW topic as shown in the second link describing your issues and someone will assist you as soon as they can.
