I think this system is still infected with something..

  1. Hello. I recently tried to fix a malware problem on my aunt's desktop. Some of the symptoms are long load times on first bootup of common sites like techspot.com, google.com, and bing.com. Crack and serial websites load without problems, and the other ones load as well after about 10-15 minutes of waiting. I also get random errors like "Spybot Search and Destroy is Corrupt. Please run chkdsk C:" and others similar to that. The volume's dirty bit is set after each startup and shutdown, and everytime it runs chkdsk, no errors are reported; It does this every other reboot. I've run SDFix, Virtundo, VirtmundoBeGone, Combofix, Ad-aware Free, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Malewarebot's Anti Maleware, and I did a boot-time virus scan with avast!, but nothing seems to work; the problems still persist. I am posting the required logs.

    Delete your Combofix file.

    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. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    **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!!!

    Here are the two logs you requested.

    I also got some errors similar to this one:

    swxcacls.cfxxe - Corrupt File : Exception Processing Message c0000102 Parameters 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c

    The scan still completed with those errors.

    1. Please open Notepad
    • Click Start , then Run
    • Type notepad .exe in the Run Box.

    2. Now copy/paste the entire content of the codebox below into the Notepad window:

    Code:
    File::
    c:\program files\RngInterstitial.dll
    
    
    Folder::
    
    Driver::
    xjmdzenei
    
    FCopy::
    c:\windows\$hf_mig$\KB951748\SP3QFE\tcpip.sys | c:\windows\system32\dllcache\TCPIP.SYS
    c:\windows\$hf_mig$\KB951748\SP3QFE\tcpip.sys | c:\windows\system32\drivers\TCPIP.SYS
    
    
    Registry::
    
    NetSvc::
    xjmdzenei
    
    RegLockDel::
    
    

    3. Save the above as CFScript.txt

    4. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as depicted in the animation below. This will start ComboFix again.

    5. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), please post the following reports/logs into your next reply:
    • Combofix.txt
    • A new HijackThis log.

    Here are the contents of that log file. Also, I just found out today that avast! prevents me from using Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer when it's enabled (I've been using RealPlayer since it was the only browser that would connect; all of the other browsers would show "Connecting", and in TCPView I noticed that they were all trying to connect to localhost). Should I un-install and re-install avast?

    Probably the best idea.

    ========================================================================

    Please download OTC to your desktop. It'll remove most tools and logs we used so far. If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

    • Double-click OTC.exe to run it. (Vista and 7 users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")
    • Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.
    • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes. If it doesn't ask you to reboot, restart computer manually.
    • After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
    • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

    ========================================================================

    Verify your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
    Update, if necessary.
    Uninstall all previous Java versions, through Add\Remove (Programs & Features in Vista).

    =========================================================================

    Disable TeaTimer, as it'll interfere with the cleaning process:
    Right click Spybot's TeaTimer System Tray Icon.
    Click Exit Spybot-S&D Resident.
    TeaTimer closes.
    NOTE. If on re-boot, Spybot inquires about registry change(s), allow it.

    Alternatively, I suggest, you uninstall Spybot since it's a tool of the past.

    ========================================================================

    Print this post out, since you won't have an access to it, at some point.

    1. Open HijackThis.

    2. Close all windows, except for HijackThis.

    3. Put checkmarks next to the following HijackThis entries:

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {0BF43445-2F28-4351-9252-17FE6E806AA0} - (no file)

    4. You should also checkmark following entries (these are unnecessary startups; no actual programs will be removed):

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IMJPMIG8.1] "C:\WINDOWS\IME\imjp8_1\IMJPMIG.EXE" /Spoil /RemAdvDef /Migration32
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IMEKRMIG6.1] C:\WINDOWS\ime\imkr6_1\IMEKRMIG.EXE
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSPY2002] C:\WINDOWS\system32\IME\PINTLGNT\ImScInst.exe /SYNC
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PHIME2002ASync] C:\WINDOWS\system32\IME\TINTLGNT\TINTSETP.EXE /SYNC
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PHIME2002A] C:\WINDOWS\system32\IME\TINTLGNT\TINTSETP.EXE /IMEName
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [EKIJ5000StatusMonitor] C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\EKIJ5000MUI.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [StartCCC] "C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static\CLIStart.exe" MSRun
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot


    5. Click on Fix checked button.

    6. Restart computer.


    When done...


    Your computer is clean [​IMG]

    1. Turn off System Restore:

    - Windows XP:
    1. Click Start.
    2. Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Properties.
    3. Click the System Restore tab.
    4. Check "Turn off System Restore".
    5. Click Apply.
    6. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this.
    7. Click OK.
    - Windows Vista:

    2. Right-click the Computer icon, and then click Properties.
    3. Click on System Protection under the Tasks column on the left side
    4. Click on Continue on the "User Account Control" window that pops up
    5. Under the System Protection tab, find Available Disks
    6. Uncheck the box for any drive you wish to disable system restore on (in most cases, drive "C:")
    7. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click "Turn System Restore Off" on the popup window to do this.
    8. Click OK

    2. Restart computer.

    3. Turn System Restore on.

    4. Make sure, Windows Updates are current.

    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.

    7. Run defrag at your convenience.

    8. Read How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic2520.html

    9. Please, let me know, how is your computer doing.
