Potential malware in system files (undetected by MB, detected by RK)


Recommended Posts


Today my computer froze; hard shut down. After start-up it was incredibly slow. Ran RK (MBAM had 0 detections in all the recent scans while RK had a few); couple of detections: 1 false positive (most likely) and .tmp file (recurring detection; possibly due to RK not being able to remove the file since it is on a bad sector or at least it claims to be. Not sure if it could be a sophisticated malware somehow making some files to give I/O error and bad sectors are not unlikely due to hard drive being over 5 years old). Repeat scan returned 0 threats. Restart and shut down & starting up again did not improve anything and it's still slow as if something is being worked on. Slight improvements after 10 or so minutes.

Causes of suspicion:

After the first RK scan (but prior to threat removal) amount of free space on hard drive increased by 5GB (have not deleted or uninstalled anything manually);

A lot of saved Chrome (default browser) passwords disappeared (including Google account - Gmail etc.). However some passwords are still there, but only for websites I have visited very long time ago. This had happened before, but I brushed it off. Successfully logged in to Google - no other attempts to login were reported. But after restarting it happened again.

Some [seemingly harmless] processes (I don't know about Win processes since I'm not familiar with them)were running after startup. Like Acrobat update, Bluetooth support server, OriginWebHelperService (EA Origin). Also happened before, but I brushed it off as well. 

All recent MBAM scans reported 0 threats.
AdwCleaner (scanned just now) reported 0 threats and 2 preinstalled software (from ASUS - manufacturer of the laptop).
Today's RK scans I described above. However, previous recent scans had other detections. svchost.exe in particular (recurring) while MBAM did not detect anything suspicious.

Processes that seemed suspicious to me personally (I don't have much clue, but just seemed suspicious):
svchost.exe (also noticed two or three instances of COM Surrogate running from time to time, but they often automatically end a couple of seconds after I open Task Manager);
livecomm.exe (manually deleted);
some Service Host network related instances seem to be active from time to time.
I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but can't remember now.

Hello kexas,

Run the following:

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

Alternative download option: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6731-farbar-recovery-scan-tool.html

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.

If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way...

Be aware FRST must be run from an account with Administrator status... Right click on FRST and rename FRSTEnglish
  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.(Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
  • Make sure Addition.txt is checkmarked under "Optional scans"
    user posted image
  • Press Scan button to run the tool....
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt) Please attach that log to your reply.

Thank you,

Could you elaborate what are possible potential causes?

I also attached Wireshark capture if it's any use.

Hiya kexas,

Thanks for the update and logs. When you use tools such as roguekiller you have to be careful what you remove. I would always advise uploading to VirusTotal or similar if you are not 100% sure the files are malicious and have them checked..

C:\Windows\system32\sppsvc.exe was flagged so you removed it, that file is a definite system file as its running from the correct folder. It has been known to be exploited but in that case would run from a totally different place... This is a quote regarding that file and its functions..


This Windows service enables the download, installation and enforcement of digital licenses for Windows and Windows applications. If the service is disabled, the operating system and licensed applications may run in a notification mode. It is strongly recommended that you not disable the Software Protection service.

The temp files that were flagged may or may not have been malicious, not really sure. Again they should have been uploaded to an online service such as ViruTotal. Temp files and temp folders can be used by malware, but they are also used by windows and other software, programs and applications..

Continue please:

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRSTEnglish, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or wherever you ran FRST from. Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1: This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed.

The following directories are emptied:
  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.


Download "Microsoft's Safety Scanner" and save direct to the desktop

Ensure to get the correct version for your system....


Right click on the Tool, select Run as Administrator the tool will expand to the options Window
In the "Scan Type" window, select Quick Scan
Perform a scan and Click Finish when the scan is done.

Retrieve the MSRT log as follows, and post it in your next reply:

1) Select the Windows key and R key together to open the "Run" function
2) Type or Copy/Paste the following command to the "Run Line" and Press Enter:

notepad c:\windows\debug\msert.log

The log will include log details for each time MSRT has run, we only need the most recent log by date and time....


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 new logs. "FRST.txt" and "Addition.txt"

Let me see those logs in your reply...

I'll attempt FRST fix. I take it it's normal for Chrome to block it as dangerous? Just in case I'll attach the one I got. Could you confirm it's correct?

Regarding .tmp files. I was wrong about the file being the same one. Seems like RK detects different file one at a time. That's the weird part. If it was due to I/O error, then a lot more files would be detected instead of just one.

Hiya kexas,

Yes the output log from msert is very much normal and as expected. AutoKMS is a hack tool used to exploit versions of Windows and MS Office to make them appear legitimate, hence cheating activation.

There was no sign of AutoKMS in you FRST logs, what msert flagged was a root certificate used to allow AutoKMS to run on your system, that would indicate that it has been on your system previously.

The latest FRST logs are clean, no signs of any malware, infection or exploits. How do you feel your system is now responding, any remaining issues or concerns..?

Thank you,

Hello kexas,

Com surrogate is a genuine windows file, I`ve just opened Taskmanager and see 3 instances running on my system. Have a read at the following link for a concise explanation.


Your listed NTUSER.pol is not malicious in my opinion, it is running from the correct folder so is of no real concern...
Let me know how your system is respong tomorrow..
Thank you,

Temp files are constantly created by windows and other software, just because RK flags them does not mean they are definitely malicious. If you have doubts upload them to VirusTotal and have them checked out...

One more indepth scan to be sure your system is clean...

Download Sophos Free Virus Removal Tool and save it to your desktop.

If your security alerts to this scan either accept the alert or turn off your security to allow Sophos to run and complete.....

Please Do Not use your PC whilst the scan is in progress.... This scan is very thorough so may take several hours...
  • Double click the icon and select Run
  • Click Next
  • Select I accept the terms in this license agreement, then click Next twice
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish to launch the program
  • Once the virus database has been updated click Start Scanning
  • If any threats are found click Details, then View log file... (bottom left hand corner)
  • Copy and paste the results in your reply
  • Close the Notepad document, close the Threat Details screen, then click Start cleanup
  • Click Exit to close the program
  • If no threats were found please confirm that result....

The Virus Removal Tool scans the following areas of your computer:
  • Memory, including system memory on 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows
  • The Windows registry
  • All local hard drives, fixed and removable
  • Mapped network drives are not scanned.

Note: If threats are found in the computer memory, the scan stops. This is because further scanning could enable the threat to spread. You will be asked to click Start Cleanup to remove the threats before continuing the scan.

Saved logs are found here: C:\ProgramData\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\Logs

So Sophos scan was clean.

However, startup is wonky again. Yesterday startup was bad and I noticed Windows Error Reporting running, so I disabled it and after then startup seemed fine (attempted several times). My guess that it was trying to access temp folders some of which aren't readable (FRST fix probably wasn't able to delete all Temp files either).

But today startup is messed up again. Wallpaper and taskbar load (but it's not usable), but the only thing I can open is Task Manager.

One of the potentially dangerous things I noticed (after opening Recourse Monitor) is that MBAM processes were suspended despite being displayed in Task Manager.

Command line for Windows Explorer when starting up is "...explorer.exe /LOADSAVEDWINDOWS" and I saw this line mentioned in malicious context (Evader and bypassing AV) on a few websites, but I'm not competent to look into it.

Attached Autoruns saved file. Process Explorer also shows Spooler Sub's process as 1/75 for VT.

Other observations during bad startup: Resource Monitor showed that a lot of things had very high response time (incl. files in System32 and SysWOW64). Event viewer naturally had a lot of errors (it's a huge mess) and a lot of them were due to time-outs.
Also, WerFault.exe, which I disabled (mentioned in previous comment), was still reading, despite not being displayed in Task Manager (only visible in Resource Monitor).
High Page File write.
wlanext.exe had 959213309280 in command line (Running from correct folder though. Don't know if this is standard, since I haven't noticed wlanext before).
taskeng.exe had {DECDD35A-154E-489F-AB6C-85279175D4C2} in command line (and another combination later).
Bluetooth with a name "SendTo from Explorer Application" had command line /Install.
