MBAM, HJT & GMER won't scan

Recommended Posts

This is a WindowsXP system... I've noticed a persistent process called 2007516154:96229256.exe that cannot be terminated. Symptoms on the system include MS Security Essentials disabled, Windows Update disabled, Windows Firewall disabled, unable to re-enable any of these services, and Google search results redirect to liedersearch.net.

I was able to successfully run an MBAM scan in Safe Mode with Networking, while in every logon profile, which did detect a number of infections and cleaned them. However, when logging into Windows normally, the above process reappears and MBAM stops scanning and becomes disabled. The same happens with HiJack This. GMER installs but will not launch or scan, as errors pop up saying various system files are in use. Here are two of the errors that occured with GMER:


LoadDriver( "C:\DOCUME~1\Casey\LOCALS~1\Temp\pgpdafod.sys" ) error 0xC0000001: Cannot create a stable subkey under a volatile parent key.


C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.


The only successful scan I've made in normal logon is DDS, which is below. I've also attached the attach.zip file from DDS. I have also run DeFogger with CD emulation currently disabled, and the log for that is at the bottom of this post. Thanks to this forum, I've managed to repair many rootkit infections, but this one eludes me. Please help.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

  • Download the file TDSSKiller.zip and extract it into a folder on the infected PC.
  • Execute the file TDSSKiller.exe by double-clicking on it.
  • Wait for the scan and disinfection process to be over.
  • When its work is over, the utility prompts for a reboot to complete the disinfection.

By default, the utility outputs runtime log into the system disk root directory (the disk where the operating system is installed, C:\ as a rule).

The log is like UtilityName.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.

for example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.2.0_20.12.2009_15.31.43_log.txt.

Please post that log here.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, please visit this webpage for instructions for running ComboFix:


  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt along with a new DDS log so we may continue cleaning the system.
