Jun 1, 2010
  1. My parents computer is infected with some virus that redirects whenever you click a link on google yahoo bing ect. I have tried all the ways I know of getting rid of it, but I can't seem to find it. I've been trying to run GMER for the past day and a half unsuccessfully, it reboots the computer after about 3 hours of running and I loose everything that it was doing. Any help would be appreciated, I tried reformatting this computer though windows recovery, but it persevered through the wipe back to factory specs. Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to TechSpot. I'll help with the malware. The Hosts files have been hijacked and when you search, you are being directed to a site in Poland.

    While I finish checking the logs, Please do the following in order listed: Print out for reference:

    You will need to do a DNS Flush, then reset your router.
    Start> Run> type cmd> enter> at the C prompt type ipconfig /flushdns (note space before the /)

    Exit the Command prompt when finished and shut the system down.-

    • [1]. Shut down your computer, and any other computer connected to your router.
      [2]. On the back of the router, there should be a small hole or button labelled RESET. Using a bent paper clip or similar item, hold that in continuously for twenty seconds.
      [3]. Unplug the router. Wait sixty seconds.
      [4].Now holding again the reset button, plug it back in. Continue holding the reset button for twenty seconds. Unplug the router again.
      [5].With the router unplugged, start your computer.
      [6].Connect to the router again. The turn the router back on.
      [7].When it stabilizes, reboot your workstation and try to access the internet. If you have any issues, access the Router configuration page and re-enter your authentication information.
      [8]. Reboot the system and test the internet. You may have to reconfigure the router settings based on your setup.
    =================================
    Please download ComboFix from Here and save to your Desktop.

    • [1]. Do NOT rename Combofix unless instructed.
      [2].Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      [3].Close any open browsers.
      [4]. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts to run.
    • NOTE: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If it does not, restart your computer to restore your connection.
      [5]. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      [6]. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always allow.
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      [7]. A report will be generated after the scan. Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt in next reply.
    Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.
    Note: Make sure you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix..
    =============================
    Try to run GMER> first, uncheck Devices and try. If that doesn't work, try scanning in Safe Mode.

    Please do not use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm heloing you unless I instruct you to. Do not use a Registry cleaner or make any changes to the Registry.

    It looks like the scans were all run after the recovery attempt- don't do any other restores, recoveries or repairs while I'm helping you.

    I tried GMER and still won't work, a Windows has recovered from a serious error message popped up both times. and I live in Oregon (US) And my ISP is Comcast. so no I do not live in Germany. When I went to windows trusted sites in internet options there were not sites there to find. And as I stated this is not my computer, so I do not know about any of those processes. All I know is I have a teenage brother who recently discovered girls. and has created a lot of computer problems for me to fix.

    First order of business:
    The antivirus that was disabled for Combofix, Antivir, shows it is outdated:
    AV: AntiVir Desktop *On-access scanning disabled* (Outdated)
    There are also processes for Symantec and McAfee. You need to get down to one, current updated antivirus program. Cleaning is useless with out that.

    Here are removal tools for all 3 programs. Remove 2 of the programs then make sure the one you keep is current. Reboot the computer when done:
    • McAfee Removal
    • Norton Removal Tool
    • To uninstall Avira:
    • Start> Settings> Control Panel> Add or Remove Programs (Windows 2000/ XP) or Start - Control Panel - Uninstall a program (Windows Vista / 7)
    • Wait for the list of installed programs to load, then click the name of the Avira program.
    • Click Remove next to the program's name (Windows 2000 / XP) or in the menu above the list (Windows Vista / 7).
    • Press Yes, to confirm the removal and then OK.
    • . Click Next until Finish. The software is removed.
    ==============================================
    After the antivirus programs have been handled:
    Custom CFScript


    • [1]. Close any open browsers.
      [2]. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

    About Telnet:
    Telnet is installed.(2009-06-12 12:31) It is a legitimate process, but it is running in the background. Experts in computer security, such as SANS Institute, recommend that the use of Telnet for remote logins should be discontinued under all normal circumstances, for the following reasons:
    • Telnet, by default, does not encrypt any data sent over the connection (including passwords),
    • Most implementations of Telnet have no authentication that would ensure communication is carried out between the two desired hosts and not intercepted in the middle.
    • Commonly used Telnet daemons have several vulnerabilities discovered over the years.
    • Most Telnet implementations do not support the extensions for Transport Layer Security (Secure Shell (SSH) protocol,) and Secure Shell (SSH) protocol,
    • In a word, it is not safe.
    ====================
    Run Eset NOD32 Online AntiVirus Scanner HERE
    • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
    • Click Start
    • When asked, allow the Active X control to install
    • Disable your current Antivirus software. You can usually do this with its Notification Tray icon near the clock.
    • Click Start
    • Make sure that the option "Remove found threats" is Unchecked, and the option "Scan unwanted applications" is checked
    • Click Scan
    • Wait for the scan to finish
    • Re-enable your Antivirus software.
    • A logfile is created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt. Please include this on your post.

    Leave new Combofix report (just 1) and Eset log in next reply.

    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.

    The other entries have either been quarantined by Combofix (Qoobox) or are in restore points (System Volume) These are not active in the system and will be removed later. In the meantime, please do not do a System Restore as it could reinfect the computer.

    Pleas see my Reply #5 regarding multiple antivirus processes running. If you're keeping Avira, use the removal tools for McAfee and Symantec.

    Multiple AV programs can make the system more vulnerable as well as slow it down.

    Try running GMER without Devices checked. If that doesn't work, try running it in Safe Mode.

    I may be able to help with the Telnet removal.

    I would like you to run a quick scan with HijackThis. If I see any bad entries, I can have you remove them.
    Then I'll have you remove the cleaning tools:

    Please select version 2.0.4 on this page:
    Download the HijackThis Installer HERE and save to the desktop:
    1. Double-click on HJTInstall.exe to run the program.
    2. By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.
    3. Accept the license agreement by clicking the "I Accept" button.
    4. Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    5. Click "Save log" to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    6. Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    7. Come back here to this thread and paste (Ctrl+V) the log in your next reply.

    NOTE: Do NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet! Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Instead of going to the Trusted Sites tab, click on Restricted Zone> Sites> add *.trymedia.com to the Restricted sites.

    Don't be surprised if you get a message that the site is already in another zone. We might have to find the adware for it.

    Okay! Sytem is clean. Here are some tips to help you stay that way! You should at least go ahead and replace the Host files as in MVPS Hosts files (second to last)

    Please follow these simple steps to keep your computer clean and secure:


    Stay current on updates:
    • Visit the Microsoft Download Sitefrequently. You should get All updates marked Critical and the current SP updates: Windows XP> SP2, SP3.
    • Visit this Adobe Reader site often and make sure you have the most current update. Uninstall any earlier updates as they are vulnerabilities.
    • Check this site often.Java Updates Stay current as most updates are for security. Uninstall any earlier versions in Add/Remove Programs.

    Make Internet Explorer safer. Follow the suggestions HERE This Tutorial will help guide you through Configuring Security Settings, Managing Active X Controls and other safety features.

    Do regular Maintenance
    • Remove Temporary Internet Files regularly:
      [o]ATF Cleaner by Atribune
      OR
      [o]TFC
    • Disable and Enable System Restore:
      [o]See System Restore Guide This will help you understand what this is, why you need to clean and set restore points and what information is in them.

    Have layered Security:
    • Antivirus Software(only one): Both of the following programs are free and known to be good:
      [o]Avira Free
      [o]Avast Home
    • Firewall (only one): Use bi-directional firewall. Both of the following programs are free and known to be good:
      [o]Comodo
      [o] Zone Alarm
    • Antispyware: I recommend all of the following:
      [o]Spywareblaster: SpywareBlaster protects against bad ActiveX. It places kill bits to stop bad Active X controls from being installed. Remember to update it regularly.
      [o]IE/Spyad This places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
      [o]MVPS Hosts files This replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
      [o]Google Toolbar Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.

    You're welcome. I think those malware writers have too much time on their hands! Stay clean.
