AVG Reports 226/227 Infections


Recommended Posts

Hi, Malwarebytes Helpers!!!

Like everyone else knocking on your virtual doors, I am in need of your help & assistance. AVG reports that I am infected. Malwarebytes reports that I am *not* infectected.

* I updated and ran a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO (Version 1.46) scan -- No virus/infection found (log file attached)

* I updated and ran a full AVG (Version 9.0.839) scan -- 227 infections found, 226 removed, 1 *not* removed or healed (detailed object information bolded below)

"Object name";"C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe (1068)"

"Detection name";"Virus found Win32/PEPatch"

"Object type";"process"

"SDK Type";"Core"

* Downloaded DeFogger and disabled my CD Emulation drivers -- No errors

* Downloaded and ran DDS -- pasted contents of dds.txt to this post, attached attach.zip attached)

* Downloaded and ran GMER Rootkit Scanner (ark.zip attached)

Quick note: Reading the log file below, *I* did not disable Spybot, nor did *I* enable Windows Defender. I do NOT use Windows Defender as part of my suite of malware-protection programs.

Thank you *very* much for your time and assistance.

Hello Tampa-Terry! Welcome to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forums!

My name is Borislav and I will be glad to help you solve your problems with malware. Before we begin, please note the following:

  • The process of cleaning your system may take some time, so please be patient.
  • Follow my instructions step by step if there is a problem somewhere, stop and tell me.
  • Stay with the thread until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
  • Instructions that I give are for your system only!
  • If you don't know or can't understand something please ask.
  • Do not install or uninstall any software or hardware, while work on.
  • Keep me informed about any changes.

Step 1

Please, uninstall the following applications:

  1. Uniblue RegistryBooster 2009

You can read, how to do this here:

Step 2

Please go into the Control Panel, Add/Remove and for now remove ALL versions of JAVA

Then run this tool to help cleanup any left over Java

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.

Please download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.

***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer (or other web browser) before continuing!***

  • Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose English and click on Select.
  • JavaRa will open; click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
  • Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
  • A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location and post it back when you reply
    Then look for the following Java folders and if found delete them.
    C:\Program Files\Java
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java
    C:\Windows\Sun
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Java
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sun\Java
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Java
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Sun\Java

Step 3

**Note: If you need more detailed information, please visit the web page of ComboFix in BleepingComputer. **

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms diminish. Lack of symptoms does not always mean the job is complete.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by me or another helper.

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:
    • Open 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 for further review.

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

In your next reply, please include these log(s):

  1. JavaRa log
  2. ComboFix log

Hi, Borislav! I have to admit that I am struggling with Combo-Fix. I turned off Online Armor (OA) and AVG, but when my computer restarted, OA went CRAZY. I didn't know how to answer the gazillion prompts/messages I got about unrecognized programs running. I approved any that I could see Combo-Fix in the url, and I blocked some -- at least one that I recognized was bad (http://www.tallemu.com/oasis2/file_hash/B1A9CF0B6F80611D31987C247EC630B4).

The problem is that when my computer restarts OA and AVG are started automatically. Should I turn off OA, WinPatrol and AVG via the WinPatrol Startup tab?

When Combo-Fix rebooted my computer, WinPatrol reported, "A change has been detected in your Internet Explorer Search Page. Your new page is http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?p...amp;ar-iesearch If this is ok, then click Yes or press Enter. Click No or presss Esc nd we'll restore your page to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkId=54896." I chose No both time, restoring my original Internet Explorer Search Page.

I still have the following Java directories/folder:

C:\ProgramData\Sun\Java

C:\Users\Terry Lee Gonzalez\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java

C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java

C:\ProgramData\Sun\Java\Java Update

Borislav, things seem to be going great.

Cool! :D

I have some questionable files/programs showing up under OnlineArmor's Program tab:

Don't worry about them, it seems that they are part of the tools we already used.

Rumor has it you had a birthday. If so, I hope it was a happy one! (grin)

Thank you! :D

Last steps:

Step 1

* Go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.

Step 2

To enable CD Emulation programs using DeFogger please perform these steps:

  1. Please download DeFogger to your desktop.
  2. Once downloaded, double-click on the DeFogger icon to start the tool.
  3. The application window will now appear. You should now click on the Enable button to enable your CD Emulation drivers
  4. When it prompts you whether or not you want to continue, please click on the Yes button to continue
  5. When the program has completed you will see a Finished! message. Click on the OK button to exit the program.
  6. If CD Emulation programs are present and have been enabled, DeFogger will now ask you to reboot the machine. Please allow it to do so by clicking on the OK button.

Step 3

Please manually delete Defogger, JavaRa, GMER and DDS.

Step 4

Please uninstall ESET Online Scanner.

Step 5

Please download and install the latest version of Java from:

www.java.com/en
