Possible Virus

  1. Hi there! I'm hoping you can help. This is what I've got going on.

    1. I've got two desktop.ini files that suddenly showed up on a reboot yesterday. I deleted them, cleaned them out of my recycle bin. This morning, I found them in my pictures file folder. When I tried to delete them, it at first said I couldn't because they were in use. I was able to delete the 2nd one. Following that...I was able to preview the contents of the first file, then delete it. Below is the code I found in the preview of the document.

    [.shellClassInfo]
    LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,21779
    InfoTip=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll, -12688
    IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-113
    IconFile%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll
    IconIndex=-236


    2. On my c drive I have some oddities going on that I had not previously noticed. They may have always been like this and I just didn't notice. But I think it's a new development.

    a. I have a $Recycle.Bin folder that is locked to even administration.
    b. My documents and settings folder is locked even to administration
    c. hiberfil.sys 11.7GB (hibernation has been disabled on my machine)
    d. pagefile.sys 15.7GB

    When I try to delete hiberfil.sys and pagefile.sys it says they are currently in use.

    3. Scanned with Avast, Malwarebytes and used the TFC cleaner. All virus scans came back to me clean.

    4. When I tried to enter SafeMode so I could run my virus/malware scans there, it did not give me the proper safe mode options. Instead it gave me a blue box with the following info...

    Please select Boot Device:

    CDROM: PS-HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW UH12L
    SATA: 3M-ST2000DL003-9VT166

    At that time I hit Esc and signed into Windows via regular/normal mode.

    The only possible point of infection that I can recall over the past 24hrs has been getting spammed on Facebook. Someone hit a bunch of my posts with an advertisement for weight loss. I un-friended the person of course. Logged off Facebook. Did my virus and malware scans, and cleaned any temp files before going back into Facebook. I did not notice any user end glitches after the incident.

    This all may be nothing, but I'd fill safer if someone more knowledgeable than me would take a look. I appreciate the assistance very much! Thank you!

    Do NOT play with any of those files/folder.
    All of them are system files/folders.

    Somehow you enabled their view.
    Open Windows Explorer. Go Tools>Folder Options>View tab, put a checkmark next to Hide protected operating system files.
    Press F5 to refresh the view and you won't see those items anymore.

    I checked in with a friend of mine who has Windows 7. Don't know why I didn't think about that before. lol She has the same folders I mentioned, so apparently that is not an issue.

    However, the two misc files that keep popping up in different locations concern me as does the prompt for a Boot Device when I try to start Safe Mode.

    Sorry if I'm giving you too much info, but I wanted to give you the update. Thank you for your help!

    I have changed my file folder viewing options. I did not change that setting on my own. No way I did cuz it took me forever to find it and I don't ever remember being in it prior to today.

    How exactly are you trying to access safe mode?
    By TAPPING F8 key at restart?

    When you press Esc key it eventually boots to safe mode or normal mode?

    Normal mode

    Download SafeBootKeyRepair by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
    Double-click SafeBootKeyRepair.exe to run it.
    Follow any prompts that may appear then post the log it produces.

    I got this message when I double clicked SafeBootKeyRepair.....

    This batch will only run on Windows 2000 or XP. Click any key to exit.

    Press any key to continue...

    I'm so sorry I got the malwarebytes anti-malware and the malware anti-root kit confused. lol

    I just ran the anti-root kit program and it said:

    "congratulations, no clean up is required!" It did not give me a log report.

    Oh...forgot to mention odd computer behavior. Upon a re-boot (before I ran this last scan) a folder suddenly appeared on my desktop again. This time it's a user system folder. When I located the file thru windows explorer, it shows that the folder is locked. If I'm not mistaken, I'm not supposed to be able to see this folder. Let alone have it appear on my desktop. lol I don't know what I've done wrong.

    [​IMG] Create new restore point before proceeding with the next step....
    How to:
    - Windows 8: http://www.vikitech.com/11302/system-restore-windows-8
    - Windows 7: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/3195/create-a-system-restore-point-in-windows-7/
    - Vista: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...tore-point-for-windows-vistas-system-restore/
    - XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948247

    [​IMG] Please download ComboFix from Here, 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**
    • Never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    • Close any open browsers.
    • 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.
    • 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.
      If the connection is not there use restore point you created prior to running Combofix.
    • Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

    • 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.
    • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt"
    **Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
    **Note 2 for AVG and CA Internet Security (Total Defense Internet Security) users: ComboFix will not run until AVG/CA Internet Security is uninstalled as a protective measure against the anti-virus. This is because AVG/CA Internet Security "falsely" detects ComboFix (or its embedded files) as a threat and may remove them resulting in the tool not working correctly which in turn can cause "unpredictable results". Since AVG/CA Internet Security cannot be effectively disabled before running ComboFix, the author recommends you to uninstall AVG/CA Internet Security first.
    Use AppRemover to uninstall it: http://www.appremover.com/
    We can reinstall it when we're done with CF.
    **Note 3: If you receive an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registery key that has been marked for deletion", restart computer to fix the issue.
    **Note 4: Some infections may take some significant time to be cured. As long as your computer clock is running Combofix is still working. Be patient.


    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    NOTE.
    If, for some reason, Combofix refuses to run, try the following...

    Delete Combofix file, download fresh one, but rename combofix.exe to your_name.exe BEFORE saving it to your desktop.
    Do NOT run it yet.
    Download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
    There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
    You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

    rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/
    iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/

    Restart computer in safe mode

    • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
    • If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
    • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
    • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
    • Do not reboot until instructed.
    • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

    When the scan is done Notepad will open with rKill.txt log.
    NOTE. rKill.txt log will also be present on your desktop.

    Once you've gotten one of them to run, immediately run your_name.exe by double clicking on it.

    IF you had to run rKill post BOTH logs, rKill.txt and Combofix.txt.
