Preferred Solution: Hijacked - keeps coming back

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Hijacked - keeps coming back

Lets try this first:You are infected with a variant of the CoolWebSearch.Download CWShredder from the below link and unzip it into a directory. Start CWShredder and click on the FIx button to have it remove all CWS infections it finds.Download CWShredder from:http://www.merijn.org/files/cwshredder.zipAfter you download the program, unzip it into a directory. Make sure all browser windows are closed and double click on the cwshredder.exe to start the program. When the program is loaded click on the "Check for Update" button, and if it finds an new version it will download it. You should then double click on cwshredder.exe again and click on the "FIX" button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan your computer.To get the best results it is recommended that you run it in safe mode. Reboot windows and press F8 at boot/windows startup, usually right after the beep. Then select safe mode.A tutorial that goes over this process step by step can be found here:How to remove CoolWebSearch with CoolWeb ShredderOnce that is completed you should follow these steps in order to clean your computer of Malware which can include Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Hijackers and DialersStep 1:Download Spybot and Adaware from the following locations and install them. You should run both programs and clean up what it finds. This is to gaurantee that you find the most malware you can installed on your computer.Before running the scans on both programs, it is mandatory that you update the programs. There are update options in each program when you run them.SpybotAd-awareIf you would like to learn more about how to use these two programs with the proper settings you can read the tutorials below:AD-AWARE - Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware/Hijackers from Your Computer.SPYBOT SEARCH AND DESTROY - Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer.When you scan with both programs, fix everything that it finds.When you are done with the scan and fixing the items. Please continue with the next step.Step 2:It is important that you run Spybot and Adaware before you proceed with this step. Fixing enties with Hijackthis may leave behind unwanted files on your computer if the previous step was not done first.Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.Download HijackThis from:HijackThisSave this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program. Click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.Create a reply to this post, and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.To see a tutorial on using HijackThis you can click on the link below:HijackThis - Using HijackThis to Remove Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers

I guess I need some help on this. My IE home page has been taken over. Tried hijackthis: deleted all entries that contain the words "true-counter". This works temporarily. I can shut off my computer, start up and go to IE, and the problem appears to be fixed, home page is correct default (blank). But the next day, when I start IE, my computer starts talking to some remote site and downloads the same unwanted page again. And the same entries are back in the registry. Where is this gremlin hiding?

My browser was been hijacked by... something a few days ago and I came here hoping you could help. I've run quite a few antiviruses and anti-spyware programs but none of them seem to find anything. Hopefully you can help because i'm out of ideas!!

Anywho, I'm running a WIndows XP machine. All web pages I pull up are garbled.. seem to have some other text written over my search results. There's no re-directing, just all the web pages seem to be missing proper formatting, some text and images.

I attached my GMER, DDS and Hijack This results.

ComboFix seems to get rid of it for a bit after I run it and restart the computer but the hijack always comes back shortly afterwards.

Thank you so much for any help with this!!

I've been having a a problem with the back left corner hinge since October of last year I poisted to another board about this problem hving been told that this issue would be passed onto support in my region. I'm currious as to weather I'll hear from these people in this lifetime or the next. I enjoy my Laptop and would like to continue using it but as time goes on it keeps seperating more and more and I have to snap it back into place to keep in together. I'm hoping to actually hear back from someone this time that will be able to help me in fixing this issue.

Answer:Back Corner coming from the back left side by the hinge

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.

I already posted in How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8
In this thread after the starting post from Tookeri other updates that had to be deleted were mentioned. I made a list in post 841
I did not have all these updates on the pc but those that were on it I hid.
Some of them came back and I hid them again.
Now today they are back - with some that I had not seen before.

I made an attachment that shows them and also shows that I hid them again

Will I have to check Windows Update for the rest of my live?????

Malwarebytes came out clean as well as a full McAfee virus scan. Hijackthis log appears clean too. With persistance I think I have this cleaned finally. I have both a dds scan and gmer report but don't really know what to look for. I can post these if someone has time to review them. I ran both prior to the windows update restart. Also updated and ran spywareblaster. Pop ups and redirects are gone too.

I have a PC i believe is infected.
i have run Combofix, it appears to find something and reboot but i am unable to tell by the log what it found.

Question: Keeps coming back!

I thought I wiped it off already but it's back AGAIN! And my SpyBot S&D is missing all sorts of components so it's not working right and it's the only one that has found any. The Microsoft one found one and deleted it but SpyBot found 16 but only deleted 2 before running into problems. EliteBar is back also. Help again!
 

Answer:Keeps coming back!

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT: Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus RemovalMake sure you check version numbers and get all updates.

- Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem:

- Download HijackThis 1.99.1

- Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

- Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file.

- Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

- Run HijackThis and save your log file.

- Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next message. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post).

Answer:they keep coming back!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

I have pc-cillin, Malwarebytes, and SuperAnti-Spyware.
SuperAnti-Spyware seems to clean everything after i scan and reboot but there are two things that keep coming back on the next re-boot.
1. Pc-cillin keeps giving me a waring telling me to close the browser when its not open with the web address of 110/rjsa/select.php?a=6707a0a cd82d9318fa98c6ee396eed8e61fcf4200553e0c95d8b1d81bbda3c1b&b=1001&c=1
2. There is a sys32 file that gets deleted and always comes back on reboot its MoIXWA40.dll
Pc-Cillin tells me this is a trojan.bho and says its will delete on reboot.
please help me this is so frustrating it slows everything down sooo slow.

It posts a permanent box on my desktop saying infected and keeps popping up at bottom right by time clock saying infected. I will run anti malwarebytes and it will clean it only if i do quick scan. But then i will run full scan and it freezes so i know it is still infected. And sure enough a few days later it is all back. Please help. I also run cc cleaner and norton but norton freezes too. I have also tried in safemode but still freezes. Thanks Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I think I may have finally scrubbed enough to keep the dll (IeBHOs.dll) from re-appearing, but the E2G folder keeps recreating itself. Any suggestions?

It's a friends system and had Norton on it. I installed NOD32 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor. Then read a few threads and ran HJT a few times and made some deletions that "may" have helped. I know that I managed to get rid of the TrojanDownLoader-AC2 but this E2G is stubborn.

Also ran SpySweeper many times in safe mode and in non-safe mode. Disables Spyware Doctor from auto load with windows as it seemed to be interefering with the Spy Sweeper scan.

Here's the latest HJT log:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Oh God help me... these anti-spyware pop ups keeps popping up and i always run a check on ad-aware 6 and Spybot once i see it. But once i connect to the net and open a site, it all comes back again n i haf to scan it all over again.... help please this is real miserable...

Thank you.

Answer:It just keeps coming back...

try manually removing, on www.doxdesk.com there are listings for spyware/parasites.

you could also go to run > msconfig and deselect any programs starting up that you dont recoginse.

also try going to http://www.symantec.com/homecomputing/
at the bottom is a link to a free online virus check, you may have one that persistantly downloads spyware.

and finally ensure you have a firewall and if you have one make sure its up to date. www.download.com has a free copy of zonealarm, thats a good one

Hello
For many years a succeeded in keeping my computers safe - then, not even a month ago, something surfaced. A Virut thing after I visited an insecure site.
If this can help, a few days before I had for the first time in my pc life installed a downloader program called Flashget-
Well I tried at first to clean up with Spybot and Spyware Doctor (who had not by the way intercepted the hostile item). But the machine had still a strange behaviour so I downloaded some Linux based Rescue CD .iso files (Kaspersky, BitDefender, WebDoctor), burned the CDs and went on scanning without Windows. Those found a wealth of infections by Trojans as well as by the Virut thing, so I kept cleaning and cleaning (desinfecting and/or deleting that is) until nothing more was found.
I then restarted Windows, uninstalled Flashget and installed Avast antivirus. Unfortunately when using my browser I started to get redirected to a "stolnik.net" whatever search I did. Plus Avast began to show infections spreading in the system by a "W32.Vitro" virus. So I tried again with the rescue CDs - Kaspersky found a couple issues but nothing else - and Avast still claiming I have the W32.Vitro everywhere.
At this point I used the VirutCF removal tool by Norton, but to no avail - there is no Virut infection in the machine.
I was beginning to get nervous so I downloaded the Combofix tool, disabled all and every anti-virus and -spyware - as requested - and tried to start Combofix: nothing happens... Read more

Answer:They keep coming back

If you truley have Virut the only real alternative is to do a complete wipe and reinstall. See boopme's post here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...t&p=1260380That will help you determine if you have virut, and if you do, what you need to do.

Greetings everyone I need some help.

First off... I have followed all the proceedures listed on the READ ME thread that is asked and I STILL AM HAVING ISSUES.

I have Ad-Aware SE and with the VX add.

I have HiJackThis v1.99 and have followed the steps on that thread as well.

Here is the problem:

I run Ad-Aware everytime I log on, and even in safe mode. It finds beween 8 and 60 items. Mostly Malware and DataMiners. Then once I fix those I rescan and it comes up clean. However, I am still getting pop-ups, I have EnhanceMySearch, and when I log off and log back in... and re-run Ad-Aware I still have 8-60 items that show up and the same problem persists.

Can anyone help and point me in the right direction? It is a major annoyance. THANKS TO EVERYONE IN ADVANCE!!
 

Answer:It all just keeps coming back

Make sure you have HijackThis 1.99 and follow the guidelines on where to install it and how to post a log as an attachment. This is all covered in the sticky thread NO HIJACK THIS LOG FILES BEFORE READING THIS: HJT Tutorial & LOG File Posting

Now post a HijackThis log as an attachment to your message (Do not post the log inline). All running programs should be closed, including your web browser, e-mail. Close before running Hijack This!

To repeat: Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file. Place it in its own folder, for example C:\Program Files\HJT

Hello sapikest,
my name is Marius and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.
First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.

Answer::( These three programs keep coming back...

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new Hijack This log

Answer:Pop ups that keep coming back after scan

hi, welcome to TSG.
spysweeper.

Before you proceed with the removal directions below you need to turn off
SpySweeper's realtime protection as it will interfere with the changes we
are trying to make.

Open Spysweeper and click on Options > Program Options.
Uncheck "load at windows startup".
On the left click "shields" and then uncheck everything there.
Uncheck "home page shield".
Uncheck "automatically restore default without notification".
Exit the program.
Leave it disabled until we are finished here.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer.

I'm having a problem with spyware (I think!) on a new laptop. I have several spyware removers such as Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Terminator among others. They seem to detect spyware mainly in the system32 folder, namely vtutu.dll and various other .dll files. I think they are attached to explorer.exe and firefox. I find it hard to delete these files as they are running constantly on processes such as explorer.exe and hence windows cannot delete them. I have managed to delete them a few times but they keep reappearing!

Hi. My problem seems similar to what others have posted, but I know that each system is unique.It seems like I am infected with some sort of malware.

Hi
Just got this issue three hours ago and it's getting on my nerves for real.. I'm really considering formatting my pc just because of it

I'll copy-paste what I wrote in the "steps taken in order to remove infection" field:

First I went into task manager and removed every weird and newly created task and its files.. they all had the same creation time. At the same time deleting any file with the same creation time near that location. Then looked around google and found someone recommending Adware Removal Tool by TSA which I used. It removed the mywebsearch hijacking and asked to restart, but then came another issue "tohot-something". And I ran adware removal tool again which did the job.. or so I thought because it came back. So I ran it again and it removed it again and I haven't restarted yet and running the tool again won't show "files found" but there're still ads everywhere.
One thing I noticed is, after running the tool and it fixing the issue there're no problems... until I enable an extension that is.. the moment I enable one everything comes back. I have RES and Mcafee site advisor but I removed them before making this thread.
Also when I first attempted to write the thread the laptop was being slow as hell and freezing and being noisy and the page crashed.. now nothing is happening.

Also I couldn't attach AdwareCleaner log because my system won't allow the software.
 

Answer:Adsware keep coming back

sorry for the double.. didn't realize it'll show it to readers.

I was attacked by spyware a month or so ago, I was able to remove most of it on my own using AVG anti-spyware, killbox, hijack this, and some registry fixes. I am currently using AVG to guard my system, but some of the problems keep coming back again and again. Namely, tiny.id (xoasonqc.exe in the system32 folder) and trojan.agent.aoy (tnypwspg.exe) also, hjy.dll and gebyawv.dll which is particularly irritating, as AVG pops up that it finds it at least twice every boot up. Right now, I have been quarantee-ing the files as it seems when I set to "permanently remove" they came back quicker. In the infections log of AVG, gebyawv is listed at least twenty times. Since the attack I have noticed other quirks such as pages not loading correctly in Netscape 9, seemingly slower operation when launching programs (some perhaps due to system resources taken up by AVG and A squared which now run in background). Please let me know if I can completely elimate this problems and restore my system to it's former operating conditions.

Answer:BSOD keeps coming back

Hi .Http.sys is a Windows file, the scene of the crime.If it were me, I'd try the registry edit suggested...but lets's try something else first.Worth reading, http://www.linkroll.com/Operating-Systems-...ptedMmpool.htmlWhat I would suggest is running either sfc /scannow or doing a repair install of XP. A repair install will probably take the same amount of time as running sfc /scannow, but will result in your needing to reinstall critical updates issues since the date the CD used will have been created.Doing either of these...requires a CD that reflects the same version of XP and at least the same level of SPs installed as your system currently reflects.How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System Files - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/ How to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install - http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm OTOH..you can elect to try the registry edit suggested in the analysis you provided. Since this involves editing the registry, the typical caution goes out to you. Editing the registry is something that can produce unwanted effects, so users are requested to back up the registry before considering such. A good tool for backing up the registry can be found at ERUNT Registry Backup Tool - http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html .If you are comfortable editing the registry or attempting such, then I would consider that suggestion.Louis

So about a year ago I was getting consistent bsods, apparently caused by a conflict between my graphics card and the intel graphics. That got solved by setting my computer to only use the nvidia card and not switch between them. Fast forward to now, after many months and a few updates for both the nvidia and intel chip, no problems until last night when that same bsod happened again. Driver power state failure, bug check code 0x9F, while my computer was on battery power saving mode (it's usually on high performance). Can anyone please shed some light on this ?

Answer:Old BSOD coming back

You know the BSOD posting rules, mate. Follow it .... we will try to have another closer look to your issue. We need to know the changes made there in your system within this time.

And yes, it is the same old issue continuing.

So I knew my computer was infected somehow. After trying one anti-malware after another, I stuck with Malware Bytes. This one works a bit, as it detected a number of viruses that kept glitching away under the radar and had them removed.

The problem is that these same viruses with the same name keep coming back, every single time I do a scan, even though I had them quarantined and removed and restarted my computer for good measure. Is there a way to delete these permanently? There's only so much my anti-malware software can do and my computer is still getting messed up every week.

I have a Toshiba laptop that back in March I had a virus and went to to a local PC store and had the virus removed.  A few months later the virus came back and I had a friend remove that virus and all was well for about a week when the virus came back once again and was removed and seems to be removed right now.  I am afraid this is going to happen again and want to know if you can check the HiJack This log here to tell me if there is something seen that I am not able to identify as a virus.  I did use the self help scan tool but I dont really know what I am looking at.  The scan is here http://www.computerhope.com/cgi-bin/process.pl?o=20192628.I run McAffee AV on this laptop along with MalWareBytes and MS Windows Defender.  I did updates and scans to each one of them 2 nights ago both in normal mode and in safe mode and none of them are returning any bad files, however, I am reluctant as this has happened three times now.  I am wondering if there is a hidden rootkit file that the softwares are not picking.I run the following system:OS Name   Microsoft?

Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer. 1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line. *************************************************************************SUPERAntiSpywareIf you already have SUPERAntiSpyware be sure to check for updates before scanning!Download SuperAntispywa...

Hi again,

I use 2000 professional at work, and have full administrator priveleges to my box.

I can set my profile to be either roaming or local, and for some time it was mistakenly set up as roaming.

While working via the roaming profile, I created a couple of folders on my desktop which will not go away. I delete them, and they re-appear when I log in again.

If I change my profile to local, I can delete them permanently. But as soon as I change back to roaming and log in again, they're back.

I'm not much of whiz at this network stuff, and wondered if there was a trick to get rid of these folders. I'm able to delete other things off of my desktop, but not these folders. It's very strange.

Thanks in advance!!

Dr. Michael
 

Answer:Folders that keep coming back...

The folders are on the server, you need the permissions on the server to delete them. If you don't intend on using the roaming profile at all any more, log on to the server as administrator, and remove your user folders there. That means under documents and settings on the server, you would delete Doc (if that's you) and all the folders below it will be deleted with it. If you just want to remove those two folders, expand Doc, click on desktop, and delete those folders. Then the roaming profile is still there, but those folders will be gone. Just make sure you didn't save anything to my documents you want to keep.

I really need help. Whenever I scan with avast, it tells me there's a virus. I can't delete because it's being used by another program. So I got into safe mode and try to remove it. A while later after I deleted it and back into Windows, I scan again and it's back. It's always in the same place too:

Good Afternoon,

This is my first post here - it's amazing how much information this site has.

I promise I utilized the search option on this site, but it seems I can't find someone else with my problem.

A few days ago, I changed my processor from an E4500 to a Xeon E3110. I did not change anything else at all. I did not install any programs either. I didn't even change the heatsink. All I did was replace my processor.

The computer works perfectly, except for one annoying thing. The computer goes to sleep just fine. When I press a button or move my mouse, the computer turns on, but my screen is blank. The only thing I can do to access the computer at that point is press the power button till the computer turns off, and then I turn it back on.

The Hibernate option works just fine, however, I am too used to the sleep button. I thought I could ask someone here for any advice before I reinstall windows, because frankly, that's the only thing I can think of at this point.

I would very much appreciate any help/advice you can give me. Also, I am somewhat of a beginner - please speak in English


Thank you very much for your time

This is the 3rd time in maybe 3 weeks I've seen this.

My AVG anti virus scan comes up (though I don't have it scheduled to scan at a certain time) and starts running, showing in a small box, changes and threats"

It has CHANGE

and: TROJAN HORSE GENERIC_CEQ in MY DOCUMENTS\LOCAL SETTINGS\TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES\CONTENT IE5\030MDFWH\MOVIE(1).qtl

Usually I either delete the temp files and/or wait for the AVG to finish and get rid of it.

But, I notice it's doing it again, now. I'm not sure if this is the exact same changes and trojan name as the previous times, but I rememer there were changes, and a trojan and it was in the TEMP files.

I get movies from Netflix and play them on the computer, but I've been doing this for 1 1/2 years and this (trojan) just started a few weeks ago. That's the only connection I can think of to "movie". I have dialup and have a hard time watching things on YouTube so don't do that much. I did try and download a free movie from a site that was passed around, but that was 2-3 weeks ago, and after seeing how big it was, and figuring it would take 2-3 months to ever download it (if I could leave the internet on, without getting knocked offline that long) I gave up.

Also I've used FRST but i don't know how useful it will be as i'm puzzled whether it worked or not Now enough from the cryptic talk.

it's under

inside the file (opened with notepad++)
this is the culprit:

Also, over time due to the popups it also installs some random tinytask thing + uk.ask.com or whatever search provider (also in logs)
Now, as i mentioned above i've checked installed programs and services and found nothing out of the place. I have no clue how the hell should i go about fixing this as its a nasty malware that doesnt wanna get removed.

Ok, so I scanned my computer with Avast and had some Trojan?s and avast got a lot of them out, although my Firefox Process runs at 100% after about 2 minutes of using the app. So I assume I have some sort of a virus, I scanned my comp with Malwarebytes and it found some and deleted then but other malware viruses keeps coming back. I also did spybot S&D it found cookies, online Bitdefender found IRC-Worm and some other generic Trj's it deleted them, it seems avast did not detect some that Betdefender did, RemoverIT Pro v4 detected lots and could not remove some(list is below), I have Vista 64bit so : RootRepeal screend didn't work. I did what the instructions told me to do and this is where I?m at. What I do most of the time when I have a virus that does not want to go away is I try safe mood scans or boot time scans, i do not have avast pro anymore so i can't do a boo time scan.

Hi, I've had this problem for about a week now. Something seems to have gotten onto my computer. The main thing I notice is there is a program called brastk.exe that gets autorun on startup. There are also a number of startup entries in msconfig that reactivate even if I disable them. They are:
"rundll32" which runs a dll called drkly16j.dll
"dumprep 0 -u"
"brastk.exe"

If I delete brastk.exe or drkly16j.dll they just get recreated on the next boot. It appears that something besides a program is running at startup, possibly a service or a program running on shutdown. There is also something redirecting my google searches, and when I plug in my flash drive an autorun file gets created along with a file called system.exe.

EDIT: uh-oh, I just tried to run HJT and Spybot and neither will start! No error messages, just double clicking on the program and nothing happens.

Hey everyone, I'm new here but not to viruses. My weakness however happens to be dealing with Trojans...and this one is no exception! I've run every anti-spyware/malware/trojan program you can think of (Most of which won't update) and only Malwarebytes finds the Trojan...but when I remove the registry keys they are back within seconds.

Answer:Trojan - Just keeps coming back.

Welcome to Major Geeks!

The infection you have is known to infect router hardware. If you have a router hooked up then you need to follow the instructions for your hardware and reset it to factory default settings. Normally there is a recessed push button type switch that needs to be held down for some number of seconds to do this. After resetting to factory defaults on your router, you will need to reconfigure the router for your network if you have made any changes to the default network setup.

If the above does not fix your problem, continue on with ALL of the below. Please note not to post any logs inline with your message like you did with the Malwarebytes log.


Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Please follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide



and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.
After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:
If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us w... Read more

so i didn't have this problem before and i JUST upgraded to SP2 via windows update and the installation went normal.everything seems to work fine but there's this program that i wasn't sure about that popped up as an alert from ZoneAlarm: MSNNOED.exe. i tried to google to see if this was a legit file but i couldn't find anything so i click no to not allow it to access the internet.i ran my virus checker and it didn't pick up anything. but when i ran malewarebytes with the most recent update, it found 3 "infected" files, one of which was the MSNNOED.exe and malewarebytes says it's a trojan agent. also it finds a comsa32.sys file which it deems as a trojan agent. when i search for that MSNNOED.exe file on my computer, it's in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 directory and there's another file in the Prefetch directory: MSNNOED.EXE-05ABE18F.pfnot sure what they are but malewarebytes quarantines them and removes them but requires a restart, which i do. when i restart and load back up, everything is fine and the file is supposedly gone (meaning when i try doing a search, MSNNOED.exe isn't there anymore as well as the other files). but when i try to open up task manager to see if it really is, shortly afterward i get an alert from ZoneAlarm saying do i want to let MSNNOED.exe access the internet. i click no. i do a search on my system again and sure enough, those same files are back there. is there a "hidden" program that...

Answer:MSNNOED.exe keeps coming back

i found something that problem might work here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/178477/win32refpro/this person had the same issue that i'm having now i'm thinking. the only difference is that in my HJT log, i see an MSCNCO.exe running in my SYSTEM32 directory which probably is running the MSNNEOD.exe file. i have an entry that says: O23 - Service: Ms Database Manager Service (mscncosd) - Unknown Owner - C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mscnco.exethe only problem is i can't delete this file because it says it's in use. i haven't done combofix, as i'm not sure how to use it and am awaiting your help. supposedly that's the file causing the loading of the other files, according to that person who posted in the link i provided.please advise. thanks!!

Vundo Keeps coming back

OS:Windows XP, SP3

Hi,
I was forwarded from "http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/203107/after-windows-update-multiple-program-errors-pc-restarting-on-its-own/" to post here.... That thread kinda died... anyway...

Over the past month I've found multiple instances of Vundo, and things seem to be getting worse.
Every time I try to clean my system, Vundo keeps coming back - even if I dont do any browsing.
Most recently, i've been experiencing applications freezing (Firefox, McAfee, Warcraft3)
The system has also crashed mid-scan using McAfee several times, but not lately.
I'm unsure if these problems are related to the Virus or other system issues - I figure get rid of the virus first and troubleshoot the rest later.
My system is fairly new (Dec 08), it came with McAfee Enterprise installed. I also installed the free version of Spyware Doctor on my computer.
Neither of which seem to be able to remove the Virus, and at times can not even detect it.

I've started to notice that sometimes McAfee is disabled after restarting the computer; I hadn't changed any settings for that to occur.

I've tried using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as well as SUPER Anti-Spyware, both of which are doing a better job of finding and clearing traces of the virus (compared to McAfee). Also tried VirtumundoBeGone and in haste, ComboFix.

VirtumundoBeGone found no traces, and Combofix didnt do anything noticable.

Please help!
Let me know if there are any logs or reports you ... Read more

Answer:Vundo Keeps coming back, not sure what to do

Well the best we can do is get an MBAM and perhaps a SUPER Anti-Spyware log to start with.Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when doneclick Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan.After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Answer:It keeps coming back!what am i doing wrong

Let's use a program to scan for any trojans that may exist. Download TDS-3. Learn how to use it here. Make sure to update it after you installed it. You can get the manual updates here. When you launch the program, it will scan your memory for running processes. This will take less than 30 seconds. Next go to System Testing on the menu and choose Full System Scan. After that's finished, post the log file by selecting everything on the top pane (select from bottom to top).

Hi I'm using Win XP and everytime I use Ad-aware to check the system my Antivirus program PC-cillin 2002 detects it and quarantines it and I choose to delete it.
But then after doing some regular surfing and email business and I do the same security procedure as mentioned above it finds Troj_haktek once again.

At first I thought it was because I visited some porno forums, but after some weeks doing just regular emailing and visiting my usual non sexy forums the PC-cillin finds Troj_haktek once again.
I've done a complete HD scan several times before after deleting the virus and PC-cillin says I'm OK. So I'm guessing the origin isn't from my computer, so it must be from visiting some website or forum. Is this a correct guess??

How can I determine what source it is that makes Troj_haktek come back even after I have deleted it with PC-cillin 2002?
And I've gone into the registry to find the haktek folder in current_user/software or something similar to that but can't find any such folder...

Combofix just restarts my computer and won't run and nothing can find the virus but it's there. It started as a fake antivirus, then when I deleted it it created win 7 antivirus 2011. I think I got rid of that one too, but now everytime I click any link it takes me to some random add page instead. I've already did a system restore from days ago and even that didn't work, but it stopped my problem with running .exe's from the win antivirus.

Answer:Virus just keeps coming back!

Hello having run ComboFix we need to see that and a DDS log.As you now see Combofix is not to be run like a commmon tool. It's why we post this above the malware forums.ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you posted earlier.Let me know if that went well.

I have a spyware problem that I can't fix. Usually, if Spybot S&D doesn't find it, I have been able to track it down in the windows or system folder and delete it in DOS, but I'm stuck this time.

It all started when the IST bar helped itself to my computer along with Gator, Xupiter and some other crap. Spybot S&D did not get rid of the IST bar, but I found the istsrv.dll file and deleted some keys in the registry to lose sight of any IST stuff.

The problem now is, every time I go to a page that has pop-ups, such as Sunspot News and even my own webpage, something is causing the original ads to be replaced with tracking cookies from DoubleClick, MediaPlex, and Avenue A.

AdAware found and deleted 37 different files and reg keys, but the problem still remains. The virus scan came up empty. I don't know if it is a javascript thing or a .dll file or what.

I downloaded Pop Up Killer and it stopped some of the action, but the cookies are still getting through.

Does anyone know what files or registry key might be causing this. I'm running 98SE and IE 5.5. I feel like I'm ready to do an fdisk right now.

Hello,

I believe I have a variation of the Zero Access Rootkit. It creates a file consrv.dll in the system32 directory. Hitmanpro has detected it and has tried to remove it, but it keeps reappearing.
Other symptoms have included the loss of internet connection (removing McAfee has resolved that issue). The windows firewall and service is completely missing and I have not been able to restore it. If left alone the system becomes unstable and I am forced to do a restore just to get it to boot.
I am running Windows 7 Home Prem 64 bit.
I have run the following without success Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, Spybot, rootkitbuster, Sophos, TDSSKiller, Kaspersky Rescue disk and a few others. All without success

I have attached the log files from DDS adn GMER. Although on GMER it would not let me check off most items (boxes were greyed out, I suspect it was because of the 64 bit OS).

I'm running out of ideas.... help...

Thanks,

Yesterday my boyfriends computer started acting up out of no where. It'll randomly lag really bad, about every 5 minutes or so. We've narrowed the problem down to some sort of spyware that's related to Alfacleaner. He'll delete Alfacleaner, but then when the computer lags again, it comes back. I've searched everywhere and followed a bunch of different instructions (such as running Ad-aware, SpyBot, and HijackThis) and can't seem to find a way to fix it. He's even used system restore and the problem still hasn't been solved. He's using Windows XP Professional. Any help will be greatly apprecaiated.

I keep scanning and finding the same spyware and adware. Every way i try to remove it, even manually finding it and trying to kill the process and deleting it, it comes back. I really dont want to have to format, but it might come to that. here is a list of the things detected by spybot s&d. : adrevolver, blackcore, casalemedia, errorsafe, mediaplex, reliablestats, smitfraud-c.toolbar888, virtumonde(which says is the the system memory and wont leave until i run a boot scan, but that doesnt help), winsoftware.winantiviruspro2006, and zedo. Also, my flashdrive with all my last resort utility programs wont open from explorer. Yesterday just the U3 part wouldnt run, now the entire drive wont light up when inserted.Here is a hijack this log.

There's a virus named wlzxha.exe in C:\WINDOWS\system32\ that keeps coming back after I delete it. The virus is "Downloader" according to Norton. It deletes fine (I've done it in safe mode) but it seems to come back after each restart.

I have already run a virus scan and spyware scan multiple times.
