  1. Hi I've read various other people' replies and it seems I maybe have some kind of trojan virus? Keep getting redirected to other search sites when using google. Some of them not ideal, as it is my mum and dad's computer and am just home for another 24 hours. Remaining 1000 characters in next post

    Hi,

    Your system is infected with a variety of malware.

    Important: Please read this thread HERE before you decide whether to clean or reformat your system.

    Should you decide to clean your computer, do the following:

    You may wish to copy and paste these instructions on notepad for easier reference later.

    Boot into safe mode under your normal user name. See how HERE

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

    Go to start > run and type services.msc. Press the enter key.
    Search for the following services(if there) double click to select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    InsDetect.exe

    Open your task manager by pressing holding ctrl, alt and pressing del. Alternatively, use ctrl + shift + esc. Go to the processes tab, and end the following processes, if found:

    InsDetect.exe
    lafAD.dll
    iesplugin.dll


    Go to start > control panel > Add & Remove programs.
    Remove anything related to Protection Bar (if found).

    After that, run HijackThis and fix the following entries, if found (do this by placing a tick in the check boxes beside these entries and clicking "Fix checked"):
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://g.msn.com/0SEENUS/SAOS01?FORM=TOOLBR

    Close HJT.

    Navigate in Windows Explorer and delete the following files and folders in bold.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\lafAD.dll
    C:\Program Files\Boots F2CD\

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Next, please go to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps to cleaning your computer.
    Do follow all the instructions exactly.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread. Do not copy and paste if not it will be ignored and/or removed by the moderators.
    The logs will enable us to understand more about the problems on your system.

    Hi there, thanks for your help with all this. Certainly a thorough approach but seems to be working, which is the main thing.

    Thanks again

    Hi,

    Your HijackThis log is clean, but your ComboFix still shows a few nasties.

    You may wish to copy and paste the following instructions somewhere for easier reference later.
    Download the Pocket Killbox from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    Boot into safe mode again, and unhide all files and folders.

    Navigate in Windows Explorer to the following files and folders in bold and delete them (if found):

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\winantivirus pro 2007
    C:\DOCUME~1\MUMAND~1\APPLIC~1\winantivirus pro 2007

    Also do a search for "winantivirus" in your system and delete all related files and folders.

    Run the killbox program which you downloaded. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted. (You can copy and paste the filepaths)

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\tmp.reg
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mbssm32.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Thereafter, please post a fresh HJT and ComboFix logs from normal mode as an attachment into this thread.

    Your friendly Momok =)

    Win Antivirus

    Hi,
    I can find the Winanti virus on a standard file serach, but it does not appear in menu for add/remove programs. Should I just run the killbox program without the first step?

    Hi,

    Your logs look clean now.

    You can delete all files in the following folders. They are backups made during the process of removal.
    C:\!KillBox
    C:\VundoFix Backups
    C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Quarantine

    Turn off system restore (XP/ME only). Learn how to do that HERE.

    This will remove all the remaining nasties from your old restore points.
    After that turn system restore back on.
    This would have created a new safe and clean restore point for your system.

    Often times, an infection can occur again not due to the incompetence of programs, but because of user habits.
    May I recommend you to read this article.
    This can help to prevent future infections.

    Should you have any further problems, please post in this thread.
