Very Stubborn Virus that evaded Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I was hoping someone here might be able to offer some insight into this as this virus has really quite crippled my computer.

I'm running Windows Vista on an Acer Aspire 5516.

I have some sort of Malware that originally was causing pages to open whenever I was connected to ther internet, and causing registry .dll error messages to pop up on startup. It also seems to have disabled me from accessing at least two of the sites in my favorites menu and has just generally slown down my computer.

I tried running Spybot, CCcleaner, Superantispyware, Vundofix and Malwarebytes and between all of them there were able to stop the popups and error messages but my computer is still running slower and I'm still unable to access espn.com and deviantart.com (were I suspect the virus came from), which leads me to believe it's still not fully gone, or that there's at least some sort of problem persisting.

Please let me know if there is anything further I can try short of a full harddrive wipe, as my computer didn't come with any Vista recovery disks, so I'm dreading having to try and hunt those down if it comes to that.

Thank you very much for any help you can offer.

Here is the log from the Malwarebytes scan I performed if it helps:

Hello ,

And :) My name is Elise and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

I will be working on your malware issues, this may or may not solve other issues you may have with your machine.

Please note that whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.

  • The cleaning process is not instant. Logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happen.
  • Please reply using the Add/Reply button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic.
  • The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Unfortunately, if I do not hear back from you within 5 days, I will be forced to close your topic. If you still need help after I have closed your topic, send me or a moderator a personal message with the address of the thread or feel free to create a new one.

You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favorites. Alternatively, you can click the button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic, where you can choose email notifications.


If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

If you have already posted a log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.

Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:

  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:

    [*]Save it to your desktop.

    [*]Double click on the otlDesktopIcon.png icon on your desktop.

    [*]Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.

    [*]Push the runscanbutton.png button.

    [*]Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:

    • OTListIt.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized

Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:

  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.

  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.

-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.


In the meantime please, do NOT install any new programs or update anything unless told to do so while we are fixing your problem

If you still need help, please include the following in your next reply

  • A detailed description of your problems
  • A new OTL log (don't forget extra.txt)
  • GMER log

After checking today the problem seems to have sorted itself in both cases! It appears that both websites happened to be updating at the same time as I got the virus and that's what looks like the issue was in the end (though I still don't understand why they worked on other computers). In any case, that takes care of any issues I had left, and thank you very much for taking the time to reply here, this is such a great community.

That is good to hear :)

However lack of symptoms does not always mean you are clean. Especially since your MBAM log showed quite some bad stuff. Please let me know if you still want a check-up or if this topic can be closed.
