    Attach.txt part of DDS log is missing. Please, post it.

    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!!!


    Download HijackThis:
    http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/
    by clicking on Installer under Version 2.0.4
    Install, and run it.
    Post HijackTHis log.
    Do NOT attempt to fix anything!

    NOTE. If you're using Vista, or 7, right click on HijackThis, and click Run as Administrator

    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:\windows\system32\029025C655.dll
    
    
    Folder::
    
    Driver::
    
    Registry::
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\TOY5KNQ8OC]
    [HKLM\~\services\sharedaccess\parameters\firewallpolicy\standardprofile\GloballyOpenPorts\List]
    "1723:TCP"=-
    "1701:UDP"=-
    "500:UDP"=-
    
    
    RegLockDel::
    
    RegNull::
    [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1960408961-152049171-1177238915-1003\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved\{9C15D6FB-A2B2-3CF7-6310-E932D322DB9A}*]
    
    
    

    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.

    Something bothers me here.
    Kaspersky's scan reports:
    Is your NOD legit? Google search for Nod32FullBusinessEdition.exe leads me to some Rapidshare page.


    Please download OTM

    • Save it to your desktop.
    • Please double-click OTM to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
    • Copy the lines in the codebox below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    Code:
    :Processes
    
    :Services
    
    :Reg
    
    :Files
    C:\Documents and Settings\Tomce\My Documents\My Received Files\sXeInjectedSetup.7.8.Fix.1.rar	
    C:\Program Files\PPStream\PPStream.exe	
    C:\Program Files\sXe Injected\sxe.dll	
    E:\Instalacii\ca_setup.exe
    E:\Instalacii\Nod32FullBusinessEdition.zip	
    E:\Instalacii\Za Format\Nod32FullBusinessEdition.exe
          
    :Commands
    [purity]
    [resethosts]
    [emptytemp]
    [Reboot]
    
    • Return to OTM, right click in the Paste Instructions for Items to be Movedwindow (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
    • Click the red Moveit! button.
    • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
    • Close OTM and reboot your PC.

    Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes. In this case, after the reboot, open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post.

    Broni when i press move it it seems like it crashes...
    many of my active processes are killed including system ones like explorer.exe... i can still run the task manager though and restart the explorer.exe from there...
    when i did that i had a .txt file appear on my desktop too (uploaded it)...

    also there are no logs in the location specified...

    it seems that it stops/crashes with the sXeInjected (sxe.dll) it cant move it into the OTM/MovedFolders location...

    should i try to uninstall it?

    I need an answer to my first question.
  13. ptomislav

    ptomislav Newcomer, in training Topic Starter

    Yeah missed that...

    Dont know tbh... when i asked for a antivirus program almost 2 years ago a friend sent me that NOD32 file i installed it and run it eversince...

    im not paying for it if thats what your asking and i dont intend to with average sallary in my country of ~ 150 euros...im getting serials from a website and it works just fine updating itself with the newest definitions...

    Firstly, that's illegal.
    Secondly, it looks like the file your friend sent to you was infected.
    There are excellent free AV programs, so there is no need to pay for anything and legally speaking, you'll come clean.
    Uninstall NOD and download and install ONE of these:
    - Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
    - Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.com/en/download/1/avira_antivir_personal__free_antivirus.html

    When done, try to run OTM one more time.
    If it still crashes, delete all files listed in my script manually:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Tomce\My Documents\My Received Files\sXeInjectedSetup.7.8.Fix.1.rar
    C:\Program Files\PPStream\PPStream.exe
    C:\Program Files\sXe Injected\sxe.dll
    E:\Instalacii\ca_setup.exe
    E:\Instalacii\Nod32FullBusinessEdition.zip
    E:\Instalacii\Za Format\Nod32FullBusinessEdition.exe
    Make sure to empty Recycle Bin afterwards.

    Let me know, when you're done.

    Everything is illegal in my contry noone pays for any software...

    does that mean all of the files are trojans?
    i mean PPStream is program for watching sports online :/
    sXe injected is anti-hack program for Counter-Strike ive scanned them million times (including other anti virus online scans) and it never gave me any infection...

    the initial problem stopped so thanks you for that... you are genius...
    as for uninstalling NOD 32 i guess ill pass that... Neither Avast nor Avira are good enough as NOD 32 or Kaspersky...

    If you sure about those files, leave them alone then.
    Delete others.

    I understand facts of life, but I have no choice, but make a comment, I did.
    I can't physically force you to uninstall anything, so it'll be up to you.

    Said that....

    Ok deleted all files.

    did the system restore thing...
    downloaded WOT and the system seems to be working excellent now :p

    one more question though...
    which of the programs that we used should i keep (except Malwarebytes which is needed i guess)?

    and Thanks once again Broni you're amazing :)

    You're very welcome :)
    Surely, keep Malwarebytes and run occasional scans.
    Keep TFC and run it weekly.
    All others can go.

    Good luck and stay safe :)
