The bug bit the 'bytes

Recommended Posts

Hi Y'all,

While trying to locate a good copy of State of Play to watch, I picked up the nasty, persistent & pesky redirect bug that sends you to thefeedbag.com site. I added that site, along with all the other redirects, to my "restricted sites." However, no go. The bug is stronger than Microsoft.

So I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran it. It showed me a list of infected files. I selected "removal" & got an error message that "Malwarebytes had to close because an error was detected." In other words, the bug bit the 'bytes.[/i]

I have attached 2 screen captures: 1) From Malwarebytes listing the infected files, and 2) The Error #14 message from my AT&T email.

Last time this happened, I did download Combo-Fix, so I have it. But I know enough to know not to do anything on my own. So, I followed your astute directions to first disable certain programs. However, that merely led me to Bleeping Computer Forums, but not to the list of programs. I even registered at Bleeping, to see if I could find the list, but no go.

So please tell me what programs to disable ... and walk me thru getting rid of this bug. Thanking you from the bottom of my heart ... in advance ...

Oh ... forgot to mention ... my dog is a little ill, so if I don't respond promptly, that's why. He also got bit ... but, alas, not just in cyberspace. He got a bad bite that abscessed & I am concurrently dealing with that. Like the cyber bug, he can easily circumvent any of my efforts to keep him from licking the abscess. It keeps me on my toes, to say the least.

  • Root Admin

The MBAM logs show you did not tell MBAM to fix it. You need to tell MBAM to fix anything found.

STEP 01

Update and Scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

  • Start MalwareBytes AntiMalware (Vista users must Right click and choose RunAs Admin)
  • Please DO NOT run MBAM in Safe Mode unless requested to, you MUST run it in normal Windows mode.
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Select the Update tab
    • Click Update

    [*]When the update is complete, select the Scanner tab

    [*]Select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.

    [*]When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

    [*]Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

    [*]When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply

    • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

Then post back the MBAM log

STEP 02

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**

  1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
    • Tools->Options->Main tab
    • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

[*]During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:

CF_download_FF.gif

CF_download_rename.gif

[*]It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

[*]Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.

[*]Close any open browsers.

[*]Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

-----------------------------------------------------------

  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

    -----------------------------------------------------------


  • Close any open browsers.
  • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
  • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
  • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

-----------------------------------------------------------

[*]Double click on combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

[*]When finished, it will produce a report for you.

[*]Please post the "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combo-fix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

If you still cannot get this to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode."

If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but name Combofix.exe to iexplore.exe instead, or winlogon.exe..

This because It also happens in some cases that malware blocks EVERY process except for what is in its own whitelist, so this whitelist also includes system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe...

In my original post, I said "I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran it. It showed me a list of infected files. I selected "removal" & got an error message that "Malwarebytes had to close because an error was detected." After that, every time I tried to run Malwarebytes, I got a message that "Malwarebytes is already running." I attached a screen shot to that 1st post of the list of infected files.

Also, with regard to your direction:

"Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".

Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask."

AND I had mentioned in my 1st post:

I followed your astute directions to first disable certain programs. However, that merely led me to Bleeping Computer Forums, but not to the list of programs. I even registered at Bleeping, to see if I could find the list, but no go.

So please tell me what programs to disable as I don't have a clue what script blocking is.

for some reason, can't copy and past the Combo-Fix Log. Keep getting message that i t is too long. SO I'M ATTACHING:

1) Combo-Fix Log 2) Combo-Fix quarantined-files.txt and 3) New Hijack This Log

Also was not allowed to upload the Hijack This Log, so I renamed it "Renamed hijack log" and it is attached.

Guess what? The scan is still running, and it has found a bunch of bugs. Who knew? You, I guess. Anyway, it's now 85% completed. I'll be posting the results whenever it finishes.

I do have a related question for you. I have a problem running anit-virus software, probably due to not having enough RAM. I mean my computer practically freezes when I go online if I have an antivirus program running. Is there s/w you can recommend that I could run that wouldn't slow down my computer? I am going to get more RAM, but don't have the bucks to do so right now.

Thanks for all your help. You are greatly appreciated!

Kate

Ron,

The computer seems to be running great, but there are a few oddities. For example, the icons under my "Favorites" have changed dramatically. My AT&T mail icon is gone, and in its place is a very weird looking icon with the letters L S on it. Another icon has also changed to something I've never seen before.

I also have a couple questions for you, which I can't remember if I've asked already.

1) For eons, I've been getting an error message on startup regarding: CD Recording Software, Roxio, Inc. Issue Description:

A CD-recording driver is installed that might cause stability problems, including problems shutting down and problems using a CD/DVD drive. This driver will be disabled. This driver might have been installed by Easy CD Creator, Windows Media Player or RealJukebox. You might not be able to record CDs until you obtain compatible drivers.

CAN I FIX THIS? I have not been able to burn a CD in years. What software should I use?

2) I have a problem running anti-virus software because it causes my computer to freeze up when I'm on the Internet. I think it's because I need more RAM, but don't have the bucks to buy more right now. Any s/w you recommend that might run better?

3) ABC Player at abc.com. Cannot get it to work. There are a number of TV shows there I'd like to watch. Any ideas?

4) I just bought a new keyboard and Windows Plug 'n Play isn't recognizing it when I plug in the USB port.

5) And one last thing: How do I get my "Recent Documents" back on my Start List. I use this all the time.

Thank you for fixing my computer and listening to my silly-ass questions. <_<

Well please run the following scanner and we'll see if we can fix some of this quickly or not. If not then I'll have you open a new post in the PC Help forum where others can assist you with most of this.

What MFG computer and model do you have?

Download
DDS
and save it to your desktop

Disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click
dds.scr
to run the tool.

When done, the
DDS.txt
will open.

Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.

    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:

  1. DDS.txt

  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop

  • Please include the following logs in your next reply:
    DDS.txt
    and
    Attach.txt

I already downloaded and ran that scanner and posted both the dds.txt info and the attach.txt previously.
