    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the preliminary virus and malware removal steps HERE.

    Be sure to check the lines in Malwarebytes and Superantispyware to remove the entries found.

    Do not removal any entries in the HijackThis log. We will help with that.

    Attach all 3 logs to your next reply for review.

    We have some work to do!
    Important! While the process is going on, please do not use any other programs unless I instruct you to. Turn off automatic updates. Do not install or uninstall any programs unless instructed.

    Download TDSSKiller. Extract the zipped file to your desktop.

    Go to Start ->Run> Copy and Paste the following text into the prompt:

    "%userprofile%\Desktop\TDSSKiller.exe" -l C:\report.txt -v
    • This will have the program write a detailed log
    • The screen will resemble this black screen:
    • When its work is over, upon detection of malicious services and files the utility prompts for a reboot to complete the disinfection. Please reboot when prompted
    • After reboot, the driver will delete malicious registry keys and files as well as remove itself from the services list.
    • You should get a screen like this:
    • A log file named report.txt should have been created and saved to the root directory (usually C:\report.txt).

    Follow the prompts and attach the report to your next reply.

    Sorry- I missed the 64 bit. I don't know of a similar program for the 64 bit OS. We can try the following. I'm using the HijackThis log, which also isn't good for the 64 bit OS.

    I'd like to ask a question though: at what point was this system worked on by the Geek Squad? Is this your personal computer or are you working on it for someone else? We offer free help for home computers, but personally, I'm not big on solving problems that others are going to get paid for! What you don't see is that the Geek Squad leaves it's tracks:
    O23 - Service: GSRestartSvc - Unknown owner - C:\ProgramData\Geek Squad\Custom\GSRestartSvc.exe (file missing)

    Please reopen HijackThis to 'do system scan only.'. Check the following if present: Note: Don't click on Fix Checked until all the entries have been checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iehome&locale=en_us&c=91&bd=Pavilion&pf=cnnb

    HijackThis just isn't going to work: Let's do this and see what you have. The entry in the Eset log shows a very nasty TrojanClicker. I can try to move it but I'm not sure this works with 64 bit either:

    Please download OTMovit by Old Timer and save to your desktop.
    • Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit3.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
    • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

      [start explorer]
    • Return to OTMoveIt3, right click in the "Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved" window and choose Paste.
    • Click the red Moveit! button.
    • A log of files and folders moved will be created in the c:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder in the form of Date and Time (mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log). Please open this log in Notepad and post its contents in your next reply.
    • Close OTMoveIt3
    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.

    Thuis will work with 64 bit in place of HJT. Hold on Combofix until I can check on it
    Please download OTS to your Desktop
    • Close all other programs.
    • Double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
    • Check the box that says Scan All Users
    • Under Additional Scans check the following:
      [o] Reg - Shell Spawning
      [o] File - Lop Check
      [o] File - Purity Scan
      [o] Evnt - EvtViewer (last 10)
    • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
    • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
    • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
    • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.

    Attach the report in next reply.

    Are you still having the same problems as you did originally? If anything is different, please let me know. I'm going to ask Broni to look at your logs and see if he knows what else can be run on the 64bit OS.

    Things are running alot better, no more redirecting and pop ups just want to make sure nothing else is on here thats all, thanks for all your help
  14. Bobbye

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    I'd still like Broni to check your logs. The Event Viewer isn't working- may be system, not malware.

    Please download OTL to your desktop.
    • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed to let it run uninterrupted.
    • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
    • Under the Standard Registry box change it to All.
    • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
    • Click the Run 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 it with your next reply.
