Win32:VBStat-C [Trj] (another one :p)

  1. Hello,
    Avast detected this trojan and I quarantined it, but after a reboot it poped up again, and again, and again..
    So I searched the internet looking for help and found these forums.

    I followed the ~15 step advices and I attached the log files.
    The AVG antirookit scan showed nothing installed.

    Symptomes seems to be strange popups like errorsafe and SecurityDoctor (think that was the name).
    Hope I did it all right...

    Any help is much appreciated :)

    Hi Dargar and welcome to techspot. =)

    I noticed that your AVG log displays 'No Action Taken' for all the files detected.
    I suggest you run AVG again and quarantine the files. Pictorial instructions HERE.

    You may wish to copy and paste these instructions on notepad for easier reference later.

    Download the attached "Combofix-Do.txt" (from my attachment) and save it to the same folder as Combofix.

    Boot into safe mode under your normal user name. See how HERE

    Next turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE

    Run HijackThis and fix the following entries, if found (do this by placing a tick in the check boxes beside these entries and clicking "Fix checked"):

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2908AC36-E56F-4670-830E-97C5954C3B59} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vgcodvep.dll (file missing)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5ADF3862-9E2E-4ad3-86F7-4510E6550CD0} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\mkiiowdr.dll

    Close HJT.

    Drag the Combofix-Do.txt that you downloaded earlier over on to Combofix.exe and release.

    This will ask Combofix to execute the instructions within my file. Let Combofix run normally and do its job.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HJT, ComboFix and AVG Antispyware logs from normal mode as attachments into this thread.

    Your friendly momok =)

    Hey momok,
    thanks for helping me out with this :)

    I re-scanned with AVG before the other steps and this time i remembered to click the "Apply all actions" button xD

    I also go the other things done and the logs saved:
    Hopefully I got it all right this time...

    Thanks again,
    Dargar

    Hi,

    Your logs look clean now.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware Quarantine folder. (located in C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Quarantine)

    Turn off system restore (XP/ME only). Learn how to do that HERE.
    This will remove all the remaining nasties from your old restore points.

    After that turn system restore back on.
    This would have created a new safe and clean restore point for your system.

    Often times, an infection can occur again not due to the incompetence of programs, but because of user habits.
    May I recommend you to read this article.
    This can help to prevent future infections.

    Should you have any further problems, please post in this thread.

    Your friendly momok =)
