Rootkit removal

By saxetnella
Aug 29, 2011
  1. At one point in several attempts to remove the problem, one AV reported it was 'setup1911.lnk'. I did not find anything useful anywhere about that one... Terminate-it was the only match found. It was free, but would only show and not fix.

    The symptoms currently experiencing is the system gets progressively slower until it finally is unresponsive; Alt-Tab between apps and the widow is removed line by line...
    Also, the system will not shut down completely. All is shutdown and halts with only desktop background displayed; all icons on desktop are removed. I have to do the 5 second power button 'strangle' hold to power off.

    Thanks in advance for any help getting rid of this thing!!!!

    I have completed the scans as per the 'UPDATED 6-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions'

    Here are the results.

    I ran the fix.bat.
    and the black box contained


    Program version: 1.2.0.0
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)

    System volume is \\.\C:
    \\.\C: -> \\.\PhysicalDrive0 at offset 0x00000000`00007e00

    and the following selection box also appeared


    ---------------------------
    Warning
    ---------------------------
    You are trying to rewrite boot code at \\.\PhysicalDrive0.

    It is strongly recommended to reboot immediately after the disinfection.
    Otherwise the malicious boot code can be restored by the trojan.

    Type 'Yes' to allow immediate reboot after the disinfection, or 'No' to disinfect without reboot.
    ---------------------------
    Yes No
    ---------------------------


    So I first tried the NO option.
    And then ran remover.exe with the following result.

    Done;
    Press any key to q

    So I ran the fix.bat again and this time selected the YES option.
    PC rebooted.
    I ran remover.exe with the following result.

    Done;
    Press any key to quit...

    And yes I did remember to clear the Java cache.
    But just to be sure, I cleaned it again.
    Followed by a repeat of the fix.bat, remover.exe like above which resulted in the same results.

    I have not run ComboFix yet.
    Wanted to get confirmation if the above results are what you are expecting.

    Let me know if I should continue, starting with ComboFix.
    Thanks

    Something appears to be wtong the the context menu in the Bootremover scan. Pleas remove everything you have for that program and then let's try again:

    Bootkit Remover:

    Download bootkitremover.rar and save to your desktop.
    1. Extract the remover.exe file from the RAR using a program capable of extracting RAR compressed files. (Use 7-Zip if you don't have an extraction program, )
    2. Double-click on the remover.exe file to run the program.
      (Vista/7 users,right click on remover.exe and click Run As Administrator.)
    3. You will see a black screen with data
    4. Right click on the screen and click Select All.
    5. Press CTRL+C (Copy)
    6. Open a Notepad and press CTRL+V (Paste)
    7. Paste the output in your next reply.
    =====================================
    Please do not go on to another steps until I check this output.
