Preferred Solution: virus.win32.nimnul!ik 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.)

Hello.

First I would like to say hello.

I have read these guidelines

Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help

For now I need to say, that I didn't do the DDS and GMER logs.

From what I had deep in my memory I assumed, that you will need a ComboFix log and HiJackThis log. I have those ready to post. (Now I know ComboFix is used if everything else fails)

If you would need me to do those DDS and GMER logs. I will gladly do it tomorrow.

So back to my problem.

I'm fixing a computer of my friend. Firstly I scanned his hard drive in my own PC and deleted or disinfected the infected files (I also have a log from Kaspersky). There were couple of Trojans, trojan downloaders and also one Virus.

The next thing I have done is put the HDD back into his PC and boot the OS. Oh, it is Win XP Home SP3 32-bit.

I've browsed the running services via Administrative Tools in Control Panel. I've browsed startup objects with MSConfig, also I've deleted some registry entries (that were suspicious to me).

Internet Explorer seemed to be infected, but it could pretty well be the effect of multiple Toolbars installed for IE. (WinOptimizer toolbar, AVG antivirus toolbar). I managed to uninstall AVG free antivirus 2011 with a uninstall tool from AVG website (Add & Remove Programs entry was corrupt).

Also I uninstalled Kaspersky Internet Security 2011. (I couldn't download instructions from the website, even if the connection was... Read more

Answer:Infected with Win32.Nimnul.A

I'm afraid I have very bad news.Win32.Nimnul.a is the name used by Kaspersky for variants of Win32/Ramnit.A / Win32/Ramnit.B, a dangerous file infector with IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, and .HTML/HTM files, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. Using this backdoor, a remote attacker can access and instruct the infected computer to download and execute more malicious files. The infected .HTML or .HTM files may be detected as The infected .HTML or .HTM files may be detected as Virus:VBS/Ramnit.A or VBS/Generic. Win32/Ramnit.A!dll is a related file infector often seen with this infection. It too has IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, .dll and .HTML/HTM files and opens a back door that compromises your computer. This component is injected into the default web browser by Worm:Win32/Ramnit.A which is dropped by a Ramnit infected executable file. -- Note: As with most malware infections, the threat name may be different depending on the anti-virus or anti-malware program which detected it.

I have a trojan virus that won't go away. It keeps getting discovered by Superantispyware, AVG, and now Avast. The programs say it was removed but there are always multiple files that were not able to be scanned because they are "password protected". Everytime I run a scan the virus is there again.

I had virtumonde a year ago and you guys were so helpful. Hoping you can help again because I'm not sure what to do now! Thanks in advance.

Despite MSE listing Quarantined as the "Action Taken" nothing shows under the Quarantined items view under History.  The detected item only shows in the "All detected items" view.
 
The following is a summary of what has occurred and actions I've taken.  The first scans with a given product resulted in some PUP findings and other "low level" possible threats.  These were removed and have not since returned.  The system has been fully scanned several times.  Some with a fresh install from a "clean" thumb drive.

So, it seems I have been infected with the above, kind of annoying since i just formeted like two weeks ago. any way, I have tried running SpyBot S&D and it keeps finding them and removing but they keep coming back. at some times it will say the system is clean but 10 mins later another scan will show them again. I also have the "Reader_s" entry that keeps coming back but right now I'm having spybot block it.
After reading around a little i saw that normally the first advice in these cases was to try SDFix, so I downloaded it and followed the instructions and will post the log it gave me along with the HijackThis log.

My computer is infected with Win32.TDSS.rtk. Spybot and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware both detect and remove it (MalwareBytes calls it "Rootkit.trace"), but then it re-appears on subsequent scans. I think it regenerates itself when ever the computer boots or re-boots. AVG Free never detects it. The hidden file C:\WINNT\System32\UACcfyxfymsntyqjxt.dll is referenced in the scans and I suspect there are several other components that are more deeply hidden.

A good deal of internet research on this rootkit took me to this fine forum to ask for help. I have used good info found while browsing this forum to rid the machine of other pesky malware, but this one is beyond my capabilities. I'd appreciate any assistance.

Sometimes those programs interfere with it, and we don't want that! Tea Timer especially needs to be disabled.This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.1. Download this file - combofix.exe http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please, along with a new HijackThis log.Note:Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.Please do this:1. Download HijackThis? here:http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/th.../hijackthis.php2. Click 'Do a System Scan and Save log'.The HJT log will open in notepad.Thanks,tea

Yesterday Microsoft Security Essentials alerted that 3 trojans had been found (WinNT/Alureon.S, Win32/Alureon.EP and Win32/Alureon.CO). It said it fixed it and required me to restart to clean the computer. I restart, and then i got alerted again saying the same 3 trojans were there. This kept on happening each time I do the scanand restart.

Answer:WinNT/Alureon.S, Win32/Alureon.EP and Win32/AlureonCO Trojan keeps coming back

Good evening. Download aswMBR.exe from here and save it to your Desktop. Double click the tool to run it. Click the Scan button to, well, start the scan - obvious really! Once the scan reports "Scan finished successfully", which takes less than a minute on my system, click Save log. On my system it offers to save it to the Desktop, which may or may not be it's default behaviour, but it's as handy a place as any. You'll also see a file called MBR.dat appear as well - this is a backup that it created, just in case it's needed. Keep it handy for now.I'd like the contents of aswMBR.txt in your next reply, if you'd be so kind.

Hi,I have been grappling with malwares/viruses for some 3 days now. Some 3-4 days back, I got a spyware infection and used MalwareBytes to remove it. Only to find that everytime I do a search in google and click any result it redirects me to a different site altogether (earlier I noticed in the IE status bar while redirecting it used to go to site abcjump.com now it is going to clickcheck.ru). I tried using several tools including MBAM, spybot, super anti-spyware. All of them found several infections (vundo, backdoor, keylogger etc.) and cured them but nothing worked for this google redirect.After analyzing, I realized if process ctfmon.exe is killed then for sometime the google redirect stops. So, I uninstalled MS office features that use ctfmon.exe using the method specified on microsoft site. But the thing continued. Then my regedit and task manager got disabled as well. After using CA etrust pest patrol, I was able to get the task manager back. I also ran combofix and kaspersky online scanner (deleted the files that it pointed other than explorer.exe).Now, after running MBAM and etrust pestpatrol again, I still have the google redirect problem though it has reduced and does not happen on each click. I also notice that in C:\SYSROOT\temp\ folder there is a file Perflib_Perfdata_774.dat and in C:\SYSROOT\temp\hsperfdata_SYSTEM there is a file named 636I am unable to delete both of these files. Earlier there were 2 other files by the similar nam... Read more

I hope that this is in the right section but I am having a problem with my computer. I can constantly hear programs running in the background. I currently have two anti spyware/malware installed on my computer. One is SpyHunter and the other is CyberDefender. They both are picking up on some virus called Vundo and everytime I delete it, it just comes right back. It is so frustrating surfing the internet because it freezes or moves extra slowly. Figured I'd ask you guys before I take a hammer to it lol.

I'm not sure whether it's a virus, trojan, spyware etc but I have something running on processes which takes up around 180k memory. Everytime I close the process it re-appears but as a different name... For example, as of now the process is called 'xsggsz.exe' but now I've closed it and it's re-appeared as 'vzdfme.exe'

I've used spysweeper, McAfee, Ad-Aware and system mechanic to try and get rid of it but it just won't budge.

I'd appreciate any help regarding this.

Thanks!

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.

Hello, a few weeks ago I had alerts from ThreatFire saying that "c:\2F2FE1D9C8463A4E6C7466B1CF9E03AD\MPSIGSTUB.EXE"was trying to modify another program, copy itself to multiple locations, I clicked ignore to these after looking it up, and finding out that mpsigstub.exe was related to windows malicious software remover. When I  tried to look inside the folders, they renamed themselves. I started to panic when I found out that its normally in the system32 folder, so my friend came round to help me delete it and remove the registry changes it had made. I know that was a virus, but I'm not sure about these: Not so long ago a very similar directory had been created again, this time with stub.exe in it. I deleted them, and ran an anti virus scan. C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\Report09186521\WER11A7.tmp.hdmp and C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\Report11188777 were infected and quarantined . stub.exe was also trying to modify other programs etc. Just today I found two more directories with similar names, such as 70d953ce1268e4d3b8, with eventlog.txt in them. I haven't got any warnings as far as I know, so I want to know if this is the same virus, or even if its actually a virus at all, and I'm just being paranoid. Thanks in advance  PS. I also had a process called conime.exe, I looked it up, and its to do with using an Asian language. Apparently, if this is running while you aren't using an Asian language... Read more

Hello,

I have been using Kaspersky and it has been finding this. Even after deleting it, it still seems to come back. Below are pictures which may help.






I didn't download AVG since I had those pics posted above. Hopefully this is okay. I appreciate very much in advance any help that may be given.

I am interested in knowing what in the world this thing is!

Answer:Possible virus...keeps coming back!

Welcome to MG's!

Something didn't go right, let's run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it. Then attach the new C:\MGlogs.zip file that will be created by running this.

Before running the above, you MUST shut down ALL antivirus and antispy programs you have running.

Hopefully I've included enough information and made this topic correctly...
 
Basically I had an issue where my microphone would mute itself, figured it was a virus, and ran malwarebytes. It found stuff, removed it, and everything worked fine... for about a few hours. A few hours later the same thing occurred, ran malwarebytes again and found the same thing: "dnsl64.exe" detected, along with other things that it appears to be downloading. No matter how many times I remove it it seems to come back, and googling dnsl64.exe popped up no results that I could find and then each scan (after a few hours) pops up a bunch of junk, even if I leave the computer idle. It also downloaded something that appeared to change my browser homepage to "search.snapdo.c*m" if that helps diagnose anything.
 
I've attached the MWB and FRST logs, hopefully they help diagnose what the problem is! Thank you in advance for any help, would really appreciate getting rid of this nasty thing.

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:

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.

Hello,

I am using a 64 bit version of windows vista. I have a virus on my computer that keeps coming back. Usually I am able to remove viruses on my computer using a combination or rkill, malwarebytes, and super anti spyware, but this specific virus keeps coming back, even after I clear it with malwarebytes. Also the virus wont let me update my malwarebytes software. I have tried to do a sytem restore, but everytime I click on the icon, i am asked to select a program to open system restore with, and I am not sure which program to pick. On my desktop there is a suspicious icon named system restore. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

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.

Hi - I recently got infected with a virus that added options to my toolbar (Fresh Search) which I managed to fix thanks to the help I saw posted here, but I still keep getting pop-ups and infections - SearchToolbar, Spyware.Msnagent and DownLoader.Trojan being the most recent. None of the anti-spyware, pop-up blockers or anti virus programs I have can stop the reinfections.

I have gone into safe made, used CWShredder, CClean, Kill2Me, HSRemove and Stinger. Also RAVAntivirus online scan, Bitdefender online scan, AdAware SEplus and Norton Antivrus. I used Silent Runners and found some suspect entries, which I edited out of the registry using Registrar Lite, and I used Hijack This to find and fix some other suspicious entries.

But they all keep coming back, in one form or another. Not crippling like before, but really annoying!

In the end I had to manually delete the trojan following the instructions on symantics web site - but that was when the fun really began. All sorts of pop up software has been appearing e.g. SysProtect, Drivecleaner and adult sites. Plus the computer has slowed down to a crawl. I have scanned my machine using Norton and AVG and Trend Housecall. And although they find new viruses, and remove them, they keep on coming back. I also downloaded and installed a Registry cleaner - to see if this would speed the thing up a bit, hope i havent deleted anything important (although it says I can recover the lines I have deleted). Can anyone help - here is the hjt log.

So my computer got a virus from a game that I tried downloading. Avast! did a boot scan and got rid of it, but a day or two later, I got messages from Chrome that said I had a virus again, but of course those are usually scams. I did another scan, just to be safe, and Avast! found two items, got rid of them, and ran another boot scan, just to be safe.

Next day, I figured it had to be from Chrome because of the fact that I attempted to download the game from Chrome and was getting odd popups and such but IE wasn't doing that. So I deleted it. My friend suggested downloading Malwarebytes so I did that as well. It found two more Trojans and so did Avast! after a full system scan. Got rid of those as well and found they were gone afterwards.

I can't tell if my computer is infected again but earlier Malwarebytes apparently blocked a couple malicious websites, and since Avast! usually did that when the virus would come back, I ran another scan and found one thing, a YouTubeAdBlocker, I don't know if I wanted to get rid of that because an AdBlocker sounds like something I would want to keep and I heard that sometimes, Malwarebytes finds things that aren't really dangerous, but idk I am not an expert. I tried not to worry about it after that but I just want to be safe.

I am running two full system scans as we speak with Malwarebytes and Avast! to see if they will find anything that way since quick scans didn't find anything (except the AdBlocker again) and... Read more

For the fourth time in the past few months, I have been experiencing strange pop-ups blocking my use of various programs. Twice, my IT dept. attempted removal of the virus, which looks like a virus warning from McAfee but will not allow removal or the use of the programs it is blocking. This time around it was blocking my use of Internet Explorer and Outlook.

A screen popped up and each time I tried to open the programs it would log a warning in the screen. The screen showed options for removing the items logged, however it would not respond to clicking any of the options and would only go away if I closed it out completely. If I did close it, as soon as I attempted to open those programs again, the warning would reappear. This is nearly identical to the last two or three times I have experienced this, with a couple weeks in between occurences.

I rebooted several times and recieved a pop-up message from Windows saying "Windows has recovered from a serious error." The third time I rebooted, it actually allowed me to open these programs without the warning. The first two times it would not go away. This has happened a couple of times prior, where that message seemed to temporarily fix my issue.

Is this a real virus that is hidden in my computer? What can I do to remove it completely?

Answer:Vundo virus coming back?

The problem is that the infection is in your system restore files. Its not trying to get back in, but if you have to use system restore it would be. Here is how to get rid of that,Disable and Enable System Restore. If you are using Windows Vista or XP, then I recommend you turn off System restore, and then turn it back on so that you will not be able to restore your problems to a clean computer.Here are some good tutorials for that. Windows XP System Restore Guide Reboot Re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial aboveCreate a System Restore PointGo to all programs, then to accessories, then to system tools, then to system restore. Check the box for create restore point (not select a restore point), then click next and follow the instructions.After you do that, do a complete scan with your tools that you have and see what they say. If they show anything other than tracking cookies, post up the logs.

The computer is running Xp service pack 2.
When I first tried to fix a popup problem with symantec, the user (my daughter) couldn't log on anymore.
Safemode would begin to load and then rebooted.

I fixed several registry entries using knoppix under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell
and copied over a copy of userinit.exe, and ntldr from another Xp installation.

Now the user can logon, but the web pages are redirected to advertisements for removal tools and other things.
A file called str.sys was removed by several malware and antivirus programs and kept coming back.

I still can't boot into safemode. I see a list of drivers loading and then the computer reboots. I would be grateful for any help, thanks.

The other day while my little sister was researching something for a project on our home computer, she clicked on a link and a window popped up saying, "Congratualtions.! Your our winner for today blah blah blah". =( When I saw it, I knew it was a virus attempt because I came across this once before when my brother was caught looking at porn smh
Anyways, I ran three different Virus Scanners, Mcafee, Threatfire and AVG, and all three said there was no infected file on my computer. Yet, every twenty (20) minutes, Threatfire virus alert would pop up with the location and name of the infected file. Each time, I selected 'Kill and Quarentine', and each time, the application disappears only to reappear later in the next twenty (20) minute time frame. Oh, and whenever anyone tries to use a search engine, youtube or any website where you have to enter data into a search field, a separate window pops up like ex: randomtext.jempca.randomtext. And it always redirects to some kind of online 'shop', 'search engine' or another 'Congralations.!' message pops up.
I went online to research what I could about manually removing a virus using the computers CMD.

Some infections will alter the Proxy settings in Internet Explorer which can affect your ability to browse, update or download tools required for disinfection.

Hello,
I seem to have gotten some viruses-worms,trojans that I can't seem to get rid of. My internet pages started to redirect, mainly to various advertising sites and of course adult sites and fake virus scanners. I scanned with Microsoft security essentials and got rid of everything but it kept on happening so I got Malwarebytes and scanned again. It cames up I had win32.autorun.tmp so I got rid of it restarted and scanned again but it was there again. I tryed again but this time the scan was almost done and I got the BSOD which happens everytime now. I then tried Spybot S&D and it scans fully but can't get rid of all infections because some of the files are in use. My computer wont boot in safe mode. I have no idea how to fix this Please help.

Answer:Virus/ worm keeps coming back

I'm not trying to bump my post I promise but I just realised that I left out some crucial information in my original post. When I start up my computer Spyhunter pops up to say that my Hosts file has been changed and that I should restore it, which is what I do. Should I be doing that? Also whenever I run a virus scan I disable the other anti-virus progams that are installed to stop anything conflicting. I can't update windows, I get an error that says "Windows could not search for new updates an error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer. code 80072EFE" I hope this extra information helps. Merry Christmas everyone.

Hi, I got a virus that keeps coming back in my Temp folder, "WindowsUpdateKB12695__7428_il31477.exe" , "tmp4191.tmp.exe" , "tmp9E32.tmp.exe" it appears once a day and I can remove it by running malawarebytes, but it keeps coming back after a few hours. It tries to install a program as soon as it appears in my Temp folderI have a feeling I might be infected with a Rootkit... I tried running Malawarebytes anti-malaware, malawarebytes anti-rootkit, tdsskiller and combofix with no luck, it still comes back every few hours or everyday.I think this virus appeared when I got some new drivers for my AMD graphics card, but I am not certain... I cannot do a system restore because I didnt have any restore points before I downloaded the drivers... ... .I would like to know if one of you more experienced user could help me with my issue. Thx in advance!Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum, due to member having already run ComboFix. ~ Animal

Answer:Virus keeps coming back in Temp

I found an "$RECYCLE.BIN" in my second harddrive, I think Im infected with Zero Access, but its on another internal harddrive which is not the one my operating system is on, I feel like all the scanners are only scanning my main harddrive where my operating system is located, so they cant find the virus!
​ How do you delete a Zero acces rootkit in a second internal hard drive?

Hi,

I have an amazingly annoying problem which keeps coming back (even after windows format), I keep getting errors which wont allow me to start,open,delete,install files. Just messes up the whole system.
The errors are:
When I want to install program - Nothing happens OR Internal Error: Failed to expand shell folder constant "userappdata"
When I want to start program - Nothing happens OR mpr.dll is missing OR netutils.dll is missing
If I want to delete a program - "An error occurred while trying to uninstall program. It may have already been uninstalled"
Startup programs won't start - netutils.dll is missing OR mpr.dll is missing

I did a fresh install on my SSD, everything was working great but after couple of days it came back.
What's going on here?

i've alreadys started discussing this in a different thread, but due to new and disturbing occurences, i felt the need to start a whole separate thread on the matter, i hope that's ok.

ok, as a background: i did a Panda virus scan yesterday and it found VBS/TheThing in my pc. it was located in the Temporary Internet Files folder. Panda got rid of it. so, fine.

Today, i decided to do another virus scan just to be thorough, so i run the Panda scanner again. and again it found VBS/TheThing !!!
location: Temporary internet files\content.IE5 folder.
don't know how i could've been exposed to it, since the last scan i haven't been to any sites other than here at TSG and Norton, nor have i done any downloading of anything that could be suspect whatsoever. i don't know how i got it again!! and this is what disturbs me further, Panda didn't get rid of it this time; i checked the scan report, and the action taken just said "infected". not deleted or renamed, just 'infected'
(last scan Panda "renamed" it). why could this be??

since it was found in the Temp internet files folder, naturally i deleted everything in it. but what i'm wondering is why it keeps coming back?

and does anyone know exactly about this VBS\TheThing virus?

Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me.  I have a Lenovo x120E thinkpad running windows 7.  A week back, MSE picked up a trojan threat and I quarantined it in response.  Subsequently, about a day or so later, I noticed my desktop had changed and the start menu was the older XP style logo.  I thought it was some update from windows and was so focused on my work that I ignored it.  
 
As my computer slowed, I decided to restore to a setting prior to the desktop change, and sure enough, the desktop went back to normal.  as I started looking for things that did not belong on my PC, I found the file C:\programdata\pcDR.  when i tried deleting it, it immediately pretended to delete but made the changes that caused the desktop to change.  I then knew I was infected, redid my system restore.  this time rather than delete the file in window, i went to the command prompt to delete the directory.  it said could not because I did not have admin rights (it is my PC and I am the only user and administrator).  so i had to "takeown", which I did and deleted the file.  Upon googling all the details, I found several threads on here of others who have had the same problem and have used just about everyone of the malware programs that have been listed...combofix, antiroot kit, JRT, etc.  the problem is the folder keeps coming back each day around 3PM...whether I am using the machine or not.  I have gone through the regi...

Avira first alerted me to this problem on 11/23. I had been getting loud annoying pop-up ads when I was browsing youtube, and then saw Avira found EXP/JS.Expack.AZ, EXP/Pidief.dme, and TR/Alureon.A.78. I googled it and found your website and followed the instructions and MBR check said nothing was found so I thought I had gotten rid of it. Avira did scans from 11/23 through 12/4 and no viruses/unwanted programs were found even though I was still having some intermittent problems with annoying pop up ads. Then on 12/5, I got a new Avira warning saying it found two unwanted programs, including TR/Alureon.A.74 and TR/Alureon AYQ Trojan. So I don't know if I got rid of it and it came back, or if it never went away, but I am ready to cry Uncle and humbly request for help! I really don't know how I have gotten this because all I do is browse the internet. Thank you so much for your help. It is greatly appreciated.

As said in the title, the Windows Xp Security Center virus keeps on coming back. I've gotten rid of the thing 6 times now, and I'm sure it'll come back again unless I find to cause of it. I also noticed that my automatic updates is off, and I can no longer turn it on. It always says that it's unable to change settings. I have no idea what to do. Anytime I get the virus, I just scan and remove it, but it's becoming a real nuisance, and I want to stop getting it now. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here's my DDS log.

Please help!!! I'm at a loss to keep vicious stuff off my computer after deleting it. Norton found W32.allim after my daughter clicked on Hey check this out! in AOL AIM. I think I got if off the computer because Norton doesn't find it anymore. However, I'm getting a dozen other things that I get off only to come back after restart such as Esyndicate, Aproposmedia, the stupid Hunt Bar constantly comes back, and upon restart, I get the message that C:/windows/system332/gmi4i9ir.exe is causing Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. I've run Microsoft Antispyware, Adaware, Xoftspy, Spybot Search & Destroy. It seems to be affecting my web browser--changing the URL home page and pop-ups are occurring. The following is my Hijackthis log file.

Hi All,

I got infected with the Funshopper virus/malware, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I tried following some manual removal tutorials online, but the instructions weren't clear about how to delete hidden files or mess with registry stuff. So it didn't work. I also downloaded Spyhunter, but that didn't work either because the scan keep hanging/freezing, so I just uninstalled it.

I've attached my FRST.txt scan.

Whenever I remove the Funshopper Chrome extension, it automatically adds itself back!

Please help! Thank you everyone!

Hi everyone,A few days ago I got infected with the Win 7 2012 virus and followed the instructions on this pageto remove it. Everything seemed fine for a day or so but after that an AVG window pops up saying that it found a problem with consrv.dll. When I try to quarantine consrv.dll the Win 7 2012 virus immediately returns and starts closing my windows and sending pop-ups. I have since followed the instructions on the above page twice and the Win 7 2012 virus seems like it's gone each time -- AVG, Malwarebytes, and Spybot Search and Destroy all come up clean -- but like clockwork, AVG will alert me to consrv.dll and then the virus re-appears. I also ran TDSSkiller which removed 1 thing from my computer.I'm not sure how these issues are related exactly and google was not too helpful so I'm requesting some help here. Thanks in advance!

Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Next run an Online scan....Please perform a scan with Eset Online Antiivirus Scanner.This scan requires Internet Explorer,Opera or Firefox to work. Vista/Windows 7 users need to run Internet Explorer as Administrator.To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select Run As Administrator from the context menu.Click the green button.Read the End User License Agreement and check the box: Check .Click the button.Accept any security warnings from your browser.Check Check Remove found threats and Scan potentially unwanted applications. (If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)Click the Start button.ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer.If offered the option to get information or buy software at any point, just close the window.The scan will take a while so be patient and do NOT use the computer while the scan is running.

Hi, new here. I'm posting because my computer started getting hit with random pop-ups, again, mostly whenever I'd run Mozilla Firefox. I ran Malwarebytes and found about 13 infections of the Trojan.Vundo.h virus. I was able to remove most of the files after the scan and some files after rebooting, however, I'm still concerned there might be some trace of the virus left getting through a backdoor of some sort.

Answer:Trojan.Vundo virus - keeps coming back

Hello JSpayde,I (as well as MicroSoft, McAfee and Symantec) recommend that you DO NOT have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.Therefore please go to add/remove in the control panel and remove one of these. AVG Anti-Virus Free or avast! antivirus. ******************Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.Please post the contents of that document. ****************** Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.Select Files and Folders created in last 3 monthsClick Continue at ...

Answer:Virus keeps coming back after formatting and reinstalling

You have previously been told...several times...that you need to format and do a clean install due to the nature of your system infections.
 
What is there that you cannot do...on any system, for any version of Windows?
 
Not sure why you posted in this forum.

The problem being as of now is that the viruses wont go away. Every time when a virus would pop up i would always Google it and try to fix it myself. Everything seems fine after finishing all the steps to the guide on how to get rid of said virus but it kept coming back after a day! At first it was the AV Protection 2011 virus and now it's the Win 7 Antivirus 2012. It's exhausting to have to do a scan everyday. Much help would be appreciated.
