    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"
    **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!!!

    More reports

    Hi Broni

    Thanks for helping

    Since my last post, I saw on another board that the file
    C:\Windows\system32\drivers\sysaudio.sys was the problem. I found it removed it
    and the Google search problem went away. Then the file came back.

    I did not get an attach.txt file and dds does not rerun.

    Note that Combofix.txt says recovery console is not installed. No true. But it is turned off as advised in the 8 step instructions. Combofix does not give an
    opportunity to turn it back on.

    Combofix.txt is attached

    Thanks again

    My instructions clearly say, not to make any changes to the computer until it's declared clean.

    That's fine. We'll get the info in different way.

    You can't turn recovery console off. Please, allow recovery installation on next Combofix run.


    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:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\security center]

    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

    How is redirection?

    Uninstall Combofix:
    Go Start > Run [Vista users, go Start>"Start search"]
    Type in:
    Combofix /Uninstall
    Note the space between the "Combofix" and the "/Uninstall"
    Click OK (Vista users - press Enter).
    Restart computer.


    Download OTL to your Desktop.

    * Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    * Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:

    drivers32 /all
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\user32.dll /md5
    %systemroot%\system32\ws2_32.dll /md5

    * Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows: OTL.txt and Extras.txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them back here.

    Next step

    Tried Google several times. Seems to be OK.
    Sysaudio.sys still there.
    Uninstalled Combofix OK
    Downloaded OTL OK
    Pasted data OK
    Hit Quick Scan and nothing happens for 10 minutes.
    Hard to type this because something is running. Can't see what
    Taskmanager shows OTL loaded but not using CPU

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 53,209   +349

    Leave Sysaudio.sys alone. It has nothing to do with your issues.

    Try to restart computer and run OTL again.

    These are totally unexpected and bizarre places for these to be. Does the attacker hide these in random places?
    Is this the source of the redirection or just another problem?

    Ran OTL. I can't find where it save a report but the file fl_boost.prm is gone.
    What about the deleted mail file?
  20. Broni

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 53,209   +349

    Simply empty deleted mail folder.

    OTL Clean-Up
    Clean up with OTL:

    * Double-click OTL.exe to start the program.
    * Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
    * On the OTL main screen, press the CLEANUP button
    * Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

    If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.


    Your computer is clean [​IMG]

    1. We need to reset system restore to prevent your computer from being accidentally reinfected by using some old restore point(s). We'll create fresh, clean restore point.

    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 and 7:
    1. Click Start.
    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): 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!:

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

    Recovery console?

    Still cleaning. Google seems OK though.
    How do I get rid
    of the recovery console.
  22. Broni

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 53,209   +349

    You don't want to do it. It's a crucial tool, when your computer gets into real trouble.
  23. kwarsh

    kwarsh TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 16

    Yes I do. I don't use System Restore. I keep it turned off.
    I don't have clue how to use Recovery Console anyway.
    I use Norton Ghost to post images to an external drive.
    And yes I have purged all old Ghost images.
    So please tell me how to get rid of Recovery Console.
  24. Broni

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 53,209   +349

    Once again, leave recovery console alone. It doesn't bother you in any way.
    You don't have to know how to use it. It's important for someone like me, when I try help you with your computer problem.

    You're not saying how your computer is doing.

    Google is working correctly. No longer redirecting to shopping sites. You fixed it and I thank you again.

    Been at it all day trying to correct small problems. One of your early programs deleted folders I had inserted in the windows folders e.g icons folder in windows\system32 and maybe destabilized a few things I don't understand. I can't get "autoplay CDs" to work anymore. IE8 has a black unreadable toolbar which stays fixed for only a short time. Something is deleting all the "remember me" and I have to sign in everytime (as in eBay which is supposed to keep me signed in for 24 hours.) Just before I got your help I thought I had it fixed for a few days by rebuilding a new user profile. Now it is doing it again. So this might have nothing to do with what your program deleted. I have rebooted 40 times today and am tired of looking at the menu for recovery console which I don't know how to use. I hate it. If it isn't one damn thing its another.
