PC Problems


Recommended Posts

Hello,

for the past few weeks now I have been having issues with my system:

1. Every time I boot the computer up I get the message "The instruction at '0x001a16b0' referenced memory at '0x00000000'. The memory could not be 'written' " with svhost.exe being the referring .exe. as long as I do not click on it, or close it, I can operate normally, but should I click ok or cancel, it auto changes my taskbar to what we see in safe mode. plus every two minutes I get the same popup box repeated. event log shows the error, and number of the error, but there is no information available on the microsoft KB.

2. I have a redirection issue in my firefox. any search terms redirect to some other search site. a search of the firefox folders reveals nothing (to me).

3. Spybot S&D, MAB, norton online scanner all show no infection or issues. In order to use them, I had to rename the exe in program folders to get them to run.

4. AVG rootkit scanner showed no infections. rootkit revealer, GMER, root repeal all showed no infections. I uninstalled those programs after use. Chkdsk and defrag were both performed on my system as well. I use auslogics registry cleaner and have also used eusing registry cleaner. Both were run till there were 0 errors, then reboot to the same problems.

For purposes of analysis, I have disabled linkscanner and resident shield in my AVG, and include a MAB scan result log, hijack this log and add/remove programs log. Thank you for your help.

Hello and welcome, Hoosier:

The browser re-directs and the fact that anti-malware apps such as MBAM are being blocked suggests that you might be infected.

So, it's best that you have your system checked out by one of the authorized experts at the appropriate forum.

Alas, we do not work on malware removal in this particular sub-forum (see Important Topic #5 at the top of this board).

However, instructions on how to proceed are posted in the 2nd Important Topic pinned at the top of this forum: "I'm Infected - What Do I Do Now?".

To summarize:

Free, expert assistance can be found at the malware removal-HJT sub-forum.

Please go to this page, print out, read and follow as many instructions as you can, skipping any you are unable to complete:

http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=69723

Then please post your logs by starting a new thread here:

http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showforum=7

One of the trained experts will then assist you as soon as possible.

When you post, please be sure to select Track This Topic & choose one of the email options, so that you will be notified when someone responds; allow 24-48 hours before bumping your thread.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you may wish to start a support ticket by contacting support at: support@malwarebytes.org, or by using one of the other support options here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/premium-support.php

Also, please use the "Add Reply" button when replying here & at the other boards, so that it will be easier for everyone to follow the thread.

Hope this gets you started until one of the experts arrives,

PS Once you get your system cleaned, you'll need to update a lot of the programs on your computer -- especially MS IE, but also TBird, Adobe Reader, etc -- since running older, insecure versions creates significant vulnerability for your system. I'm also not sure why you seem to have multiple instances of MS .NET, AVG & other files on your system. Best to leave that to the experts!

It's not a problem -- you're not the first, and undoubtedly won't be the last. :)

There are a lot of sub-forums here, so it's easy to get a bit lost.

Please do be sure to print out, read and follow those instructions, as suggested in my original post.

Then, please be patient until one of the authorized helpers can review your logs at the Malware Removal forum.

(You could instead choose one of the other options, as outlined in my post, if you prefer.)

Good luck!
