Logs will be closed if you haven't replied within 3 days

Please do not attach the scan results from Combofx. Use copy/paste.

DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix, or HijackThis fixes without supervision.

Doing so could make your pc inoperatible and could require a full reinstall of your OS, losing all your programs and data.

Vista and Windows 7 users:

1. These tools MUST be run from the executable. (.exe) every time you run them

2. With Admin Rights (Right click, choose "Run as Administrator")

Stay with this topic until I give you the all clean post.

You might want to print these instructions out.

I suggest you do this:

XP Users

Double-click My Computer.

Click the Tools menu, and then click Folder Options.

Click the View tab.

Uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types."

Under the "Hidden files" folder, select "Show hidden files and folders."

Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files."

Click Apply, and then click OK.

Vista Users

To enable the viewing of hidden and protected system files in Windows Vista please follow these steps:

Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.

Click on the Start button. This is the small round button with the Windows flag in the lower left corner.

Click on the Control Panel menu option.

When the control panel opens you can either be in Classic View or Control Panel Home view:

If you are in the Classic View do the following:

Double-click on the Folder Options icon.

Click on the View tab.

If you are in the Control Panel Home view do the following:

Click on the Appearance and Personalization link.

Click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.

Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.

Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide extensions for known file types.

Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.

Please do not delete anything unless instructed to.

Next:

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

Download - ATF Cleaner»

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.

Under Main choose: Select All

Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser

  • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser

  • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

It's normal after running ATF cleaner that the PC will be slower to boot the first time.

Next:

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1

Link 2 If using this link, Right Click and select Save As.

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link : Protective Programs
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    Notes: Combofix will run without the Recovery Console installed. Skip the Recovery Console part if you're running Vista or Windows 7.
    Note: If you have SP3, use the SP2 package.
    If Vista or Windows 7, skip the Recovery Console part
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

RC1.png

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

RC2-1.png

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt using Copy / Paste in your next reply.

Notes:

1.Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.

3. Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell your helper.

4. CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Give it atleast 20-30 minutes to finish if needed.

Please do not attach the scan results from Combofx. Use copy/paste.

Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.

Larry,

I followed the directions you included, however:

1. I was not offered a choice for using the SP3 or SP2 Package (I have SP3);

2. Early in the CF scanning process the red banner with FreakingNews.com appeared, and withing 10 seconds disappeared. I'm going to see if it reappears after inactivity period elapses. I'll advise in # 4, below.

3. After 2 minutes of CF's scanning I got the Microsoft Blue Screen advising me that Windows encountered an error and was shutting down, dumping memory to disk.

4. It's still there.

What is the next step.

Thanks.

Mr. Tate,

Tried the reply button on the bottom of your post. Didn't seem to work. Combofix.txt file contents are below. Pc is operating normally but FreakingNews.com banner persists. Antivirus and antimalware program is still disabled. Thank you for your time and effort; waiting instructions.

It is not listed in Add/Remove Programs

What item should I uncheck on the Task Bar? When the banner is there I have no access to the task bar because either I have activated the Shut Down or Restart process and the PcC is about to turn off, or I have to enter my password to log back in after the inactivity timer has activated (as soon as I enter my password the banner goes away). These are the only 2 times the banner is there. If I disable the password or disable the screen saver, then the only time I get the banner is during the shut down or restart process.

Mr Tate,

I must apologize for taking so much of your time, especially when the "problem" was of my own doing. The "mysterious" red FreakingNews.com banner was actually part of a photo I had received and was using as wallpaper. The thumb of the photo did not clearly show it, but when viewed in Paint it was very clear. This has been a wild goose chase for you and I am sorry for it. You have been very gracious during this time; please accept my apology and consider the case closed.

Thank you

PS I have not retained any of the programs you recommended that I download and run.

Cool.... I'm glad you figured it out. It was driving us both insane :D

Remove those that the below doesn't.

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

For XP:

  • Click START run
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /, it needs to be there.

For Vista / Windows 7

  • Click START Search
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /, it needs to be there.

If you used DeFogger

To re-enable your Emulation drivers, double click DeFogger to run the tool.

  • The application window will appear
  • Click the Re-enable button to re-enable your CD Emulation drivers
  • Click Yes to continue
  • A 'Finished!' message will appear
  • Click OK
  • DeFogger will now ask to reboot the machine - click OK

IMPORTANT! If you receive an error message while running DeFogger, please post the log defogger_enable which will appear on your desktop.

Your Emulation drivers are now re-enabled.

Here's my usual all clean post

To be on the safe side, I would also change all my passwords.

This infection appears to have been cleaned, but as the malware could be configured to run any program a remote attacker requires, it's impossible to be 100% sure that any machine is clean.

Log looks good :D

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.
    5. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    6. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    7. Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    8. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    9. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    10. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    11. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    12. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.

    [*]Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week

    (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

    [*]Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer.

    Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over.

    I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients.

    Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    [*]Using a secure browser plugin M86 SecureBrowsing makes it safe to search, surf and socialize online. This free browser plug-in displays security icons next to links on search engines and social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, so you'll know which pages are safe and which ones to avoid.

    •Free browser plug-in for Internet Explorer and Firefox

    •Real-time safety ratings

    •Ideal for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

    [*] JAVA Click this link and click on the Free JAVA Download

    [*]Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly.

    This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer.

    If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site

    until there are no more critical updates.

Only run one Anti-Virus and Firewall program.

I would suggest you read:

I had already deleted the Combofix.exe, and Defogger.exe and their logs before I received your last. I downloaded Defogger again and clicked Reenable. It performed quickly. However, Windows could not find ComboFix so I downloaded it again to the desktop, still no go. Should I run it again and then uninstall it? Or, is there another way to uninstall it? Thanks.
