Antimalware Doctor Blocking IE

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

My laptop (Windows Vista) was recently infected with Antimalware Doctor; after manually deleting any files which were obviously related to the virus (I followed the steps here: http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-antimalware-doctor) and numerous Malware Bytes scans I appear to have stopped the pop ups. Unfortunately although my internet connection (via router) is strong IE will not load, MSN Messenger however is signing in and running as normal. Either the virus is still present, I have deleted something vitally important (eek!) or both!

Each run of Malware Bytes picks up a Rootkit.Agent oxykfj.sys, it's removed after the scan but always reappears after reboot.

Any help is much appreciated, thank you for your time.

NOTE: GMER is taking a ridiculous amount of time to scan, I shall attach the results as soon as it completes.

Hello collybird

Welcome to Malwarebytes.


We will begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:


* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

IE is working once more!!

For some reason I seem to be having trouble C&P my results, I've attached ComboFix.txt along with DSS.txt in case I encounter the same problem again.

Thanks you so much for your help so far Kahdah!

Here's the ComboFix results you requested.

Save this as CFScript.txt

Drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe

2. Save the above as CFScript.txt

3. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as depicted in the animation below. This will start ComboFix again.


4. During this run Combofix will collect and automatically upload some sample files.

You will see it say Combofix needs to upload some samples.

If it fails to do that do the requested steps at the bottom of this post to manually upload the samples.

5. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), please post the following report/log into your next reply:

  • Combofix.txt



If Combofix fails to upload anything please do the following:

Go to Start > My Computer > C:\

Then Navigate to C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\[4]-Submit_Date_Time.zip

Click Here to upload the submit.zip please.
