Backdoor.Tidserv.I!inf virus plus more. 8 steps completed

By mikeb
May 10, 2010
  1. The Norton on 1 of our computers expired and we got the Antivirus 2010 / Backdoor.Tidsev.I!inf virus. At first I could do nothing as the ability to run .exe's was disabled. I followed the steps on this site to get the exe's runnning.
    I was able to restore Norton Internet Secutity and worked on the 8-steps. I am still not able to update XP, the site seems to be blocked to me on that computer, although norton, java and adobe updated. I also am having problems logging into this site on that computer (the modem becomes disabled). So I am sending this from another computer.
    Attached are the requested logs.
    Thanks.

    You're still infected with a rootkit.

    Please download and run the below tool named Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) which may help allow other programs to run.

    There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.

    Vista and Win7 users need to right click Rkill and choose Run as Administrator

    You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

    * Rkill.com
    * Rkill.scr
    * Rkill.pif
    * Rkill.exe


    • * Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
      * If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
      * A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
      * If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
      * If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
      * Do not reboot until instructed.
      * If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

    Once you've gotten one of them to run then try to immediately run the following.

    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 directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. 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.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • 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.
    4. Please open Notepad
      • Click Start , then Run
      • Type notepad .exe in the Run Box.
    5. Now copy/paste the entire content of the codebox below into the Notepad window:

      Code:
      TDL::
      C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\afd.sys  
      
    6. Save the above as CFScript.txt
    7. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as depicted in the animation below. This will start ComboFix again.

    8. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), please post the following logs into your next reply:
      • Combofix.txt

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

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    I have followed your instructions and included the logs. I did have a bunch of problems and combofix took 3 trys to remove, but after a few reboots the computer seems to be running normal. It is still a bit slow, but looks much better. After this round I was finally able to update windows.

    5. If any Trojan was listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately!

    6. Download, and install WOT (Web OF Trust): http://www.mywot.com/. It'll warn you (in most cases) about dangerous web sites.
