Help! Another dogpile

  1. Hi all,

    The infected 'put would take 5-10 min. to load IE. I updated & ran Spybot, and have attached the HJT log and awf.txt. From perusing the other threads, this looks like a machine-specific process. Thanks for the help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Right click on this link DelO15Domains.inf and choose Save As. Save it to your desktop. Right click on that file and choose Install. It will run immediately (you won't be able to see anything happen). You may delete it afterwards. NOTE: This script will delete any sites you may have added to the Trusted Sites. So if you want them back, you have to add them back to the Trusted Sites again.

    Double-click FindAWF.exe to start the tool. Then, do the following
    Select "option #2 - Restore files from bak folders" by typing 2 and press Enter .
    A text file will open up. Please copy/paste the following text from the quote box (all except the word QUOTE) into the text file.

    Close the .txt file and click Yes to save the changes.
    When the tool has completed, a report will open up in notepad. Please post the results of the awf.txt in your next reply as an attachment.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Please double-click the FindAWF icon once again
    This time we are going to remove some folders.


    Use the following option: Press 3 then Enter to remove bak folders


    A text file opens called: folders.txt
    Click below the line and paste the following list of folders to be removed:



    Next, close and click Yes to save the changes.

    When done with the above, FindAWF automatically runs a new scan and opens a new log that you need to post.
    Please provide the new FindAWF log

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s now clean and the infection is gone.

    To finish, run Option 4.

    Double-click the FindAWF icon once again.
    Use the following option: Press 4 then Enter to reset domain zones


    When the program returns to the main menu, use the following option:
    Press E then Enter to EXIT

    Now, please do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    Thanks again for the quick response. I have run findawf option 4. The rest of the steps require more time than my client has this evening. Can they wait till tomorrow nite?
