  1. Hi,

    I've tried everything I can think of to get rid of this virus, it's running two instances of iexplorer and norton constantly tells me it's blocking attacks from the http LOP toolbar. I ran every scanner your prelim. reccomends and the nolop tool, which claims that it took care of the problem which it clearly has not. I've run it again and it still thinks the system is clear. I'm running out of ideas :(
    It's making my laptop run relatively hot at idle, and under load borderline threshold.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with the lop trojan and the trojan adload.

    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.

    Please Download NoLop to your desktop from one of the links below...
    http://www.spywareedge.net/nolop/NoLop.exe
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/...pmod;dl=item16

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    A Message should popup from NoLop.
    If not, double click the program again and it will finish.

    --If you receive an error, "mscomctl.ocx or one of its dependencies are not correctly registered," please download mscomctl.ocx to your system32 folder then rerun the program.-- http://www.boletrice.com/downloads/mscomctl.ocx

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

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

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    listcorn.exe
    ping htm rule.exe
    ALCMTR.EXE

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [coallessbookref] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\cdromballcoalless\listcorn.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [plan plus] C:\DOCUME~1\root\APPLIC~1\ENCSUR~1\ping htm rule.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\DOCUME~1\root\APPLIC~1\ENCSUR~1<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\cdromballcoalless<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\windows\ALCMTR.EXE

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
