Pesky Trojan.Agent keeps Loading on Re-start


Recommended Posts

Cool- Have a good weekend! Let me amend what what I said about not finding those files in the System32 folder. I looked for them after the Mbam scan so they were deleted by the tool at that point. Today I went and looked before running anything (Norton now finds the same trojan on every start-up) and there were 2 Altsystem files in the system32 folder. I removed both. But I know they'll be back upon re-boot. Thanks again Advanced for your patience and help!

Advanced- Doing some research on-line this trojan has files with .wow (World of Warcraft) that come up as infected. I looked in the system32 folder and I have following ".wow" files: (do these look legit?)

wow32.dll

wowded.exe

wowexec.exe

wowfax.dll

wowfaxiui.dll

wowformf83_401.dll

as well as those Altsystem9979.exe and Altsystem723733.exe

hope this helps? thanks again!

Advanced- doing some troubleshooting I started up with the network cable unplugged and Norton did not flag the trojan. As soon as I plugged in the cable and it found the connection the Norton boxes popped up saying it had found the trojan. Im assuming this thing was phoning home? I have cancelled the credit cards and banking log-ins via contacting my credit institutions as a precaution. Thanks!

Well the BEST solution would be to save your data and FLATTEN the box, i.e. rebuild it.

Let's try running this full routine again and see if we can locate the culprit.

You will want to print out or copy these instructions to Notepad for Safe Mode/offline reference!

These steps are for member
VanHelsing only

. If you are a lurker, do NOT try this on your system!

If you are not
VanHelsing
and have a similar problem, do NOT post here; start your own topic

Do not run or start any other programs while these utilities and tools are in use!

icon_arrow.gif

Do NOT run any other tools on your own or do any fixes other than what is listed here.

If you have questions, please ask before you do something on your own.

But it is important that you get going on these following steps.

STEP01

Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files:

To enable the viewing of Hidden files follow these steps:

* Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.

* Double-click on the My Computer icon.

* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.

* After the new window appears select the View tab.

* Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system 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 file extensions for known file types.

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

* Press the Apply button and then the OK button and exit My Computer.

* Now your computer is configured to show all hidden files.

STEP02

    Download and install
    CCleaner
  • CCleaner

  • Double-click on the downloaded file "ccsetup215.exe" and install the application.

  • Keep the default installation folder "C:\Program Files\CCleaner"

  • Uncheck "Add CCleaner Yahoo! Toolbar and use CCleaner from your browser"

  • Click finish when done and close
    ALL PROGRAMS

  • Start the
    CCleaner
    program.

  • Click on
    Registry
    and
    Uncheck
    Registry Integrity so that it does not run

  • Click on
    Options
    -
    Advanced
    and
    Uncheck
    "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"

  • Click back to
    Cleaner
    and under SYSTEM uncheck the Memory Dumps and Windows Log Files

  • Click on
    Run Cleaner
    button on the bottom right side of the program.

  • Click OK to any prompts

STEP03

Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware

applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools.

This should apply to AVG8:

To
disable the Resident Shield
, please:

open AVG User Interface

double-click on the Resident Shield

un-tick the option Resident Shield active

save the changes.

STEP04

Please download and run the following file to repair file and registry permissions

STEP05

  • Download
    FixPolicies.exe
    by Bill Castner and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on FixPolicies.exe to run it.

  • Click on Install. It will create a folder named FixPolicies on your desktop.

  • Open the FixPolicies folder.

  • Double click on
    Fix_policies.cmd
    to run it. Command Prompt will open and close quickly this is normal.

  • Reboot your computer after it runs

  • This fix may prove temporary. Active malware may revert these changes at your next startup. You can safely run the utility again.

  • Note: some malware will block the running of this tool. So if you cannot run Fixpolicies, then, RENAME the EXE file to something like Mytool.exe and then run it.

STEP06

Download this INF repair file by MS-MVP Miekiemoes:
http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miekiemoes/tools/VArestorepolicies.zip

Unzip the download. Open the folder
VArestorepolicies
and
Right-click
the file inside,
VArestorepolicies.INF
and choose
Install

STEP07

icon_arrow.gif

If you have a prior copy of Combofix, delete it now !

Download ComboFix from one of these locations, saving to DESKTOP:

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

If your I.E. browser shows a warning message at the top, do a Right-Click on the bar and select Download, saving it to the Desktop.

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware
    applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
  • Double click on Combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • If and only if you are prompted to download a new version of Combofix, reply NO .

  • 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.

RcAuto1.gif

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

whatnext.png

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

Please watch Combofix as it runs, as you may see messages which require your response, or the pressing of OK button.

IF

you should see a message like this:

Rookit_found.gif

then, be sure to write down fully and also copy that into your next reply here and then await for my response.

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

-------------------------------------------------------

A caution -
Do not run Combofix more than once.

Do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed, as this may cause the process to stall or your computer to lock.

The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled.

If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.

Even when ComboFix appears to be doing nothing, look at your Drive light.

If it is flashing, Combofix is still at work.

STEP08

IF

and only
IF
the Combofix has worked without exceptions, only then, do the following. IF it has exceptions, then please provide all details and put that in a reply pronto, and STOP, and await my reply.

Only if Combofix has a good finish:

I'm going to have you get and run a special tool. It will hopefully take out most remains of this beast. Keep in mind that not all files I list here will be found on your system; so do not be alarmed. This is a general-type list of typical infectors.

  • After your PC has completed the necessary reboots, a log should automatically open. Please copy/paste the contents of
    c:\avenger.txt
    into your next reply.

Not all the items will be found; so do not worry. Hopefully enough of the rootkit will be removed so that we can continue forward with more cleaning.

and then reboot the system again.

hey how about this. If I get a new C: drive (my Hp notebook features a hot swappable drive) and use the old C: as storage. Of course Wiping the Windows folders on that drive. Would that kill it? Also, I had an external WD Passport drive on the usb port. Could this thing have migrated to it? thanks!

Yes it certainly can infect the USB drive depending on the infection. Some specifically target USB drives on purpose because they know people will use them to transfer data from machine to machine.

To answer your question, yes without a doubt a NEW drive that you FDISK (a new partition is needed to ensure an MBR infection does not survive as it would with just a format), FORMAT, install Windows on while disconnected from the Internet is THE SAFEST method to ensure you're not infected. Generally speaking most infections can be cleaned, some take a bit more work than others but can still be done. Though there is always the potential that there is something hidden that was just never seen before and it isn't noisy like most Malware is. Win32.Ntldrbot (Rustock.C) was such a rootkit that went undiscovered for a long time.

I'll try to assist you whichever way you want to go as best I can and as time allows, just let me know.

Advanced- I think I discovered the problem of why combofix did not work the first time. I know it is very important that the anti-virus not run during this process and if it is does the process may not work or hang. I had disabled the anti-virus til re-start the first time around (did not expect the re-boot) and even though combo fix finished it did not work. The second time i made sure I used the 5-hour disable ont he anti-virus and combofix removed all of the infection. It ran alot longer (hard-drive light action) this time as well as after the re-boot. I ran Kasperskys to do a clean up and all is well. Used CCleaner again to also do some clean up. I re-installed the latest Java and everything seems fine. MBAM scans reveal no infection as well. Unistalled combofix from the Run prompt to delete the quarantine and re-set the restore point. Want to say thanks again for all your hard work. If not for your help I would still be in the soup.

Advanced--Man I about had a stroke when I ran that Oldtimer tool. My computer froze at the recovery console. I had to do a forced re-start then it booted into windows. (Is this normal?) On the HiJack log you will notice a few new anti-spyware items I have installed as im trying to take a pro-active approach to this crud. The best defense is a good offense. Thinking of getting rid of the All-seeing Eye though as you have to ok every process. I think its still in the "learning mode". Also have Win Patrol and Key Scambler. Anyway thanks again sir for all your help! Logs are below:

Okay looks good. Just a note that these items are "food for thought" and you don't necessarily have to install every one of them.

As for the OT no it's not normal but seems like your up and running okay now.

One of the best solutions that helps a lot is using Firefox and the NoScript plugin. It complains a bit, but really saves your hide and once trained with the sites you visit often its quite manageable.

Take care and good luck out there.

I'll close your post soon so that other don't post into it and leave you with this information and suggestions.

So how did I get infected in the first place?

At this time your system appears to be clean. Nothing else in the logs indicates that you are still infected.

Now that you appear to be clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Disable and Enable System Restore-WINDOWS XP

This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

Turn off System Restore

  • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  • Click Properties.

  • Click the System Restore tab.

  • Check Turn off System Restore.

  • Click Apply, and then click OK.

  • Reboot.

Turn ON System Restore

  • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  • Click Properties.

  • Click the System Restore tab.

  • UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.

  • Click Apply, and then click OK.

This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.

Spybot Search and Destroy

Download it from
here
. Just choose a mirror and off you go.

Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly
here

Install SpyWare Blaster

Download it from
here

Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster
here

Install WinPatrol

Download it from
here

Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works
here

Install FireTrust SiteHound

You can find information and download it from
here

Install hpHosts

Download it from
here

hpHosts is a community managed and maintained hosts file that allows an additional layer of protection against access to ad,

tracking and malicious websites. This prevents your computer from connecting to these untrusted sites

by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your own local computer.

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.

You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.

Note 1:

If you are running Windows XP
SP2
, you should upgrade to
SP3
.

Note 2:

Users of Norton Internet Security 2008 should uninstall the software before they install Service Pack 3.

The security suite can then be reinstalled afterwards.

The windows firewall is not sufficient to protect your system. It doesn't monitor outgoing traffic and this is a must.
