Browser Hangs - Can't get into Safe Mode

Recommended Posts

After the problem first appeared I ran mbam and it found and fixed it, I thought. Problem reappeared a bit later. Ran mbam again and it found and fixed more problems. Ran mbam again and it could not find any more problems.

Suppose to be clean, but computer is still having issues so I have run the other scans you requested and am hoping you can fix this. Have attached the logs requested plus the logs from the two times mbam found problems. Thank you for all your help.

Here's the DDS log:

Hello RustyNail

Welcome to Malwarebytes.


One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan or rootkit.

This type of infection has the capabilities to allows hacker to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identity Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do.

Looks like we got bit good. This computer was running and online for at least 24 hours after it got hit. It belongs to a friend. I took it offline as soon as I discovered the problem. I used another computer to get the scan software and transfer it with a USB stick. It's been shutdown since I scanned it, waiting for you report.

We have changed any passwords that might have been compromised. This computer is on a small Win XP workgroup network and I am wondering if this bug would have traveled over the network to the other computers? None of them are showing any signs and they have all passed a scan with mbam.

I'm going to wipe the hard drive and do a fresh os install like you recommended. Should I use one of those secure delete programs or will a partition delete and re-format do the trick?

From now on I will suggest to my friend that he only only log on as a user type account rather than as an admin type. Hopefully this will keep these bugs out of his computer.

Sincerely appreciate your help in reviewing our problem.
