    I'll be glad to help with the malware- if you can be more specific about this:
    What was the popup?
    What was the stuff
    What is happening with the system other than acting slow?

    While you get that together, I'll be checking the logs you left.

    Please do not use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you, unless I direct you to. Do not use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.

    It was popups saying that I had virus's - which I know the ad's themselves are just trying to get you to download stuff but last time it happened I did infected pretty bad with virus's.

    The computer doesn't want to start properly, nothing will really load even basic programs like calculator and notepad.

    I notice you have many addons for Firefox. I checked Fiddler2 for Firefox(3.6.13) and it is not compatible. There is a Beta version, but part of the problem is within Firefox itself. Since you appears to be having system problems, I suggest you uninstall Fiddler2, then restart FF.

    Another addon, AFOM has very mixed reviews. I'm almost ready to stop using Firefox because of it's huge memory consumption, but some say this can cause more memory use. some also suggested using "Memory Fox" instead.

    Okay, no more clicking on popups that say you have a virus! Let's see how much damage it did:
    Run Eset NOD32 Online AntiVirus scan HERE
    1. Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
    2. Click Start
    3. When asked, allow the Active X control to install
    4. Disable your current Antivirus software. You can usually do this with its Notification Tray icon near the clock.
    5. Click Start
    6. Make sure that the option "Remove found threats" is Unchecked, and the option "Scan unwanted applications" is checked
    7. Click Scan
    8. Wait for the scan to finish
    9. Re-enable your Antivirus software.
    10. A logfile is created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt. Please include this on your post.
    Download Combofix to your desktop from one of these locations:
    Link 1
    Link 2
    • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. It is 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 if needed.
    • 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.
    • Query- Recovery Console image
    • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:
    • .Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware
    • .If Combofix asks you to update the program, allow
    • .Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
    • .Close any open browsers.
    • .Double click combofix.exe[​IMG] & follow the prompts to run.
    • When the scan completes it will open a text window. Please paste that log in your next reply.
    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.

    Per the instructions, security programs are suppose to be disabled before running Combofix. You left them running. Per the instructions, the AV program is suppose to be disabled before running the Eset scan. If you did not do this, that is the reason why the scan won't progress. There is also a chance that an Active X object included in a rootkit may be preventing the scan.

    catchme in Combofix: Showing this entry:
    detected NTDLL code modification:
    ZwClose, ZwOpenFile

    This may refer to the Gromozon_Rootkit

    Please run the Gromozon Rootkit Removal Tool It should be saved to the desktop and run from there. This is a small utility that can rapidly detect and remove the Gromozon rootkit.

    Please follow any prompts given and include log in next reply.

    I did disable them before I started the scans so I'm not sure why it's saying they were enabled. I tried the Gromozon link you gave me and it says it is expired.

    Well that's weird! That entire page had the download information when I left the link!

    Try this link from PREVX.

    They wrote the program and it's working now.

    Well I downloaded it and it won't run, it opens up and I hit run and nothing happens :s

    kel1987 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 75

    I've given a few more attempts to get the program to work, tried in safe mode, with antivirus programs turned off and everything. Still not luck.

    Thanks for the help so far though :) I'm hoping to get this issue resolved soon, the computer is driving me nuts lmfao

    kel1987 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 75

    Am I still going to be able to get help with this? :s
  15. Bobbye

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    Yes, you're going to get help. I have been busy helping other members. And I did take a bit of time out to eat and sleep> that's what's good about being a volunteer> I can do that without being docked pay!.

    When people only give us information like this:
    it takes longer to get a handle on the cause and resolution.
    The computer is slow because you have everything that's installed on the computer starting on boot>then running in the background>> slow load, slow shutdown, excess use of RAM.

    But you did it again!

    This doesn't point to malware as much as system problems>What maintenance other than defrag do you do on the system? Error check? When was the last time you did it?
    Since you can't run the other program, please run this:
    • Download the file and save to the desktop.
      (If you are unable to download the file for some reason, then TDSS may be blocking it. You would then need to download it first to a clean computer and then transfer it to the infected one using an external drive or USB flash drive.)
    • Right-click the file> Select Extract All into a folder on the infected (or potentially infected) PC.
    • Double click on TDSSKiller.exe. to run the scan
    • When the scan is over, the utility outputs a list of detected objects with description.
      The utility automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for malicious objects.
      The utility prompts the user to select an action to apply to suspicious objects (Skip, by default).
    • Select the action Quarantine to quarantine detected objects.
      The default quarantine folder is in the system disk root folder, e.g.: C:\TDSSKiller_Quarantine\23.07.2010_15.31.43
    • After clicking Next, the utility applies selected actions and outputs the result.
    • A reboot is required after disinfection.

    Wow no need AT ALL to be rude.

    You are obviously reading the logs wrong because I DO NOT have everything starting on boot, I do know a few things about computers! Want me to prove it? I'll attach screen shots of MSCONFIG. As of now I only have 40 process's running which is down from well over 70.

    And let me clarify, since you seem to have problems understanding what I originally said. I was searching stuff on google. I clicked on a link from google that automatically opened a bunch of pop ups. I DID NOT click on any of the pop ups I immediately shut my machine off and disconnected the internet asap, waited a while then got back on.

    I do all the maintainance on my computer often usually about once ever 2 weeks, again I do know something about computers and maintaining them but when you get a virus, malware what have you then that is when I have problems especially when the programs I use dont solve the issue.

    Scan came back clean.

    But as I restarted my firefox it popped up and said something about an ad on that was malware, the name was Feeder but I haven't installed anything and it's not showing up in my add on list.
  18. Bobbye

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    Using just the search term Feeder the only identification I can find is:
    Feeder is an award-winning Welsh rock band that formed in Newport, Wales in 1992.

    You can try doing these 2 things:
    1. I note you have AdBlockPlus> good> add the following for better blocking:
    Easy List

    2. Block the 'feeder' domain: Open Firefox> Tools> Advanced> Check 'Allow Cookies from sites'> Click on Exceptions> type this in and click on Block.
    The following Registry entries show programs or apps on the Startup menu and/or msconfig:
    Please see the following reply for instructions for Cleaning out those unwanted msconfig files:

    Cleaning out those unwanted msconfig files
    This may require you to edit the registry. Doing this incorrectly can cause permanent damage to your operating system, and should therefore be done with extreme caution. Follow these steps to make a backup copy of your registry in case something does go wrong.
    1. Click the Start Menu.
    2. Go to Run.
    3. Type "regedit" without the quotes, and hit enter.
    4. Click the "Registry" (or "File") menu
    5. Click "Export Registry File..."
    6. Choose an easy to remember place to save the file and give it a name.
    7. At the bottom of that box, under Export Range, are 2 buttons, click the one that says "All", and then click Save.

    Now that this is done, navigate thru the Registry like you navigate your hard drive in windows explorer.
    1. In the left pane, go to KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    2. In the right pane, find the name of a program you want to remove from your msconfig (look at msconfig if need be), and click on it.
    3. Hit the delete key on your keyboard, and click Yes in the resulting dialog.
    4. Close MSconfig (if it is open) and then reopen it. If the file is still there it is located somewhere else, if not, repeat the above steps for the rest of the ones you want removed from msconfig.
    I hope this is helpful. If you have any more information on the 'Feeder' popup, it would help identify the source.

    I have Easy List installed already.
    I googled the feeder thing and it popped up recipe.feeder. IDK

    Also tried the msconfig clean out, followed the steps and when I got to run nothing but DEFAULT popped up in the right side panel.

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    Wish you'd share more of your information. Are you saying the you're being directed to a recipe site?

    You saw the Registry entries on Startup. So 'Default' what is coming up?
  22. kel1987

    kel1987 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 75

    This is what I found when I looked up Feeder: Adware.RecipeFeeder
    I am not being redirected or anything just my PC is running very slow since the original pop up.

    When I rent to : KEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run , in the right panel all the pops up is Default, Reg_sz, value not set.

    You're slow because you have too many processes running.
    Custom CFScript

    • [1]. Close any open browsers.
      [2]. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      [3]. Open notepad> click on Format> Uncheck 'Word Wrap> and copy/paste the text in the code below into it:
    Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe

    Referring to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

    When finished, it will produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt . Please paste into to your next reply.
    Click on Control Panel> Internet Options> Security tab> Restricted Sites> Sites> type the following in, then Add to Restricted Sites:
    To remove entries from Startup using the msconfig utility:
    • Click on Start> Run> type in msconfig> enter>
    • Click on Selective Startup
    • Choose the Startup tab:
      This is where you UNCHECK the Startup items. This does not remove the item or uninstall anything> it just stops it from starting on boot. It can be rechecked at any time if wanted.
    • To expand the Command Column, (this shows what the process 'belongs' to) hold left mouse button down on the dividing line on frame above Location and move to the right to expand.

      Uncheck everything except the antivirus, firewall if using 3rd party firewall, touchpad if on laptop and network processes if using Pure Network (Citrix) This includes all HP Digital Imaging
    • Click on Apply> OK when finished.

    When you reboot the system the first time after making changes using the msconfig utility, a nag message comes up that can be ignored and closed after checking 'don't show this message again.'
    Once you make changes to the Startup menu, you must remain in Selective Startup to retain those changed. If you go back to Normal Startup, everything you unchecked will be checked again and start on boot.
    Download HijackThis and save to your desktop.
    • Extract it to a directory on your hard drive called c:\HijackThis.
    • Then navigate to that directory and double-click on the hijackthis.exe file.
    • When started click on the Scan button and then the Save Log button to create a log of your information.
    • The log file and then the log will open in notepad. Be sure to click on Format> Uncheck Word Wrap when you open Notepad
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and paste (Ctrl+V) the log in your next reply.

    NOTE: Do NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet! Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    As I have ALREADY stated I do not have everything running at startup. I have already turned most all programs off from MSCONFIG! I have attached pictures to show proof!

    As of now I only have 36 processes running with Firefox open.

    I will follow the other steps now.
