Preferred Solution: Virus coming back again and again

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.)

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.

Thanks

Hello I've been battling with this fake AV for a while now and I just discovered that Windows Firewall is putting out this error code when I try to restore it, 0x80070424. I am using AVG 2012 as a anti-virus program and running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit. If anyone can help me with this I would be forever grateful.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

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:

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,

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.

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

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?

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!

It all started last week when my computer contracted Trojan.Nebuler. My copy of Norton could'nt get rid of it so I downloaded various so called fixes. 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.

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!

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.

Working on a friends computer that had some viruses. I ran malwarebytes and that cleaned out about 15 problems. Gave her back her computer and the next day she had the same problem. Not sure what is going on but when the virus kicks in, it also changes the proxy setting so that she cant use the internet. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Answer:Virus problem keeps coming back---help

Some infections will alter the Proxy settings in Internet Explorer which can affect your ability to browse, update or download tools required for disinfection. Check/reset the Proxy Settings as follows:Press the WINKEY + R keys on your keyboard or go to > Run..., and in the Open dialog box, type: inetcpl.cplClick OK or press Enter.Click the LAN Settings... button and uncheck Use a proxy server for your LAN
or change the settings to the proxy you normally use if you previously reconfigured it.Remove any unknown addresses from the Address box. 80 is the default Port so it does not have to be changed.Click Ok and then click Ok again.Close Internet Explorer and restart the computer.If using Firefox do this:Open Firefox, click Tools > Options > Advanced and click the Network Tab.Under the Connection section click on the Settings... button.Under Configure Proxies to Access the Internet, check No proxy. This is the default option if you don't use a proxy.Click Ok and then click OK again.Close Firefox and restart the computer.For other browsers, please refer to How to configure browser proxy settings.Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.zip) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!Be sure to print out and follow all instructions for performing a scan or refer to these instructions with screenshots.Extract (unzip) the file to your desktop and make sure TDSSKiller.exe (the contents of the zipped file) is on the Desktop itsel...

Somebody please help! I've tried everything I know of...
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. I tried it a few times to get rid of the folder the viruses would constantly pop up in, but the virus would still pop up. The location is always C:/Windows/Temp/ which I found wierd because I thought most viruses would pop up... Read more

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 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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

Answer:Infected With Virus/spyware - Keeps Coming Back

Hello there and welcome to Bleeping Computer's security forum.My name is David, I will be helping you with your log today.It is a good idea to print off these instructions:This will be useful as there is a possibility some of the instructions will need to be carried out where internet access is not available. You may also like to save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above. A print out of the instructions would be a good reference to make sure you don't yet lost.Also, it is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and also that you don't miss any steps out!If you have any queries about the process or just general questions, just ask.Step #1I do not recommend that you 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 create "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 false alarms - When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't. Also it can cause system performance problems; your system may lock up due to both softwar... Read more

Hello! My computer got infected with XP Security 2010. Ran Malwarebytes and it seemed to fix it for a few days. Got the XP Security 2010 virus again. Ran Malwarebytes again and it seemed to clear up. Now AVG Resident Shield shows "Virus identified Win32/Patched.CG C:\Windows\system32\drivers\atapi.sys. Object is white-listed (critical/system file that should not be removed). Can anyone help me with this? Also, my computer won't let me access the Microsoft Windows Update site. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:XP Security 2010 virus keeps coming back!

I tried using Malwarebytes to remove the Vista Security virus to no avail. I used Hitman Pro 3.5 (free 30 day trial) and that cleared the problem. Run the update after installing, and be sure to uncheck the option to run a check on your computer when you start up otherwise you'll get stuck in a full ChkDsk run every time you boot up. The file it will find will be something like av.exe or ave.exe. Delete that file.
You may need to install Hitman Pro from a thumb drive if you can't get online due to the virus.

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.

I have a virus embedded in a file: system32\userinit.exe. I have cleaned and cleaned and it keeps coming back every time I log back on the computer. I want to delete that file and get a new userinit.exe. I tried to do a System File Check to fix it, but I don't have the windows CD that needs to be put in to do that. Is there anything I can download from anywhere to get a new file? Anyone have any ideas?
 

Answer:system32\userinit.exe virus keeps coming back

You can follow this procedure and then I can review your logs and do my best to solve your issues:

Welcome to Major Geeks!

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

Pleases 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 what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable ...

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.

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!

I have tried to read through some of the similar questions, but did not really understand them, I am not sure what a hijack log is and such. With step by step directions, I might be able to do it myself. I am running windows xp.

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.

Hi,

I have an acer aspire 5670 running windows XP professional. I've had it for over 3 years now and never had 1 problem or one spyware...out of nowhere...its infected and I cant get it fixed. I have hijackthis, combofix, malwarebytes, spybot s&d, spywareblaser, superantispyware, atf cleaner, and antivir antivirus on my computer. Ive cleaned out the pc countless times, including deleting all cache and prefetch and temp data...ive cleared out all suspicious keys and paths in the registry. Also, there are multiple hidden objects on my computer (26 to be exact) that I cannot find, view or delete...but I did block them with the group policy editor. Everything I've done only seems to be a temporary fix.

There have been multiple issues with things such as antivirus pro 2007/2009, etc (other fake spyware programs). My google links or other search engine links are all redirected to other sites. After I clean the pc...it fixes the issue but only for a short while. Also, most of my processes in my task manager are UPPERCASE...after i clean the pc...again, they go back to lowercase but only for a short while. Ive deleted spyware with names such as svchast, and multiple other trojans. I'm pretty computer savvy and fix computers in my spare time....so I'm able to stop the issue, but it seems I cannot find the source of my problem and it just keeps coming back. I am going to include a log from hijackthis and anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated... Read more

Hi,I am no novice to removing malware, but every once in a while I am completely at a loss, and I have three infected client PCs right now that have me beat. I will post them in seperate threads.This one starts itself in WinLogon, and I can start from a CD to access the hard drive and delete the file in questions (which is set to hidden and read-only and system), but when I restart another file has taken the place of the first one.The WinLogon registry entries change, too. I have come across these so far:Web Check (maybe without space)Controls FolderReliabilityShell ExtensionsShellScrap (no space) - I gave up after this one, and the file name is ppdrv.dll. ShellScap appears to be the name of another virus which doesn't fit the symptoms here, though.Internet on that PC is broken.I used HiJackThis to weed out everything else.On most PCs I can use Process Explorer (Sysinternals) to go into WinLogon and kill the bad process, but on this PC (and some others) I don't get a file name for the process in the Thread tab, but only a memory address, so I have no way of knowing which one to kill.But even if I could kill it and remove the file, something else must still be started with Windows that restores a new WinLogon entry with a new file.I will go back to that person on Monday, but I will only have this one day left to fix it, so I need all the info I can get before I go there.Here is the original HJT log that I made before I made any changes. The PC was started in Safe Mode CMD Prom... Read more

Answer:Virus Keeps Coming Back - Winsync Qoologic

This is number 3 that I encountered today. I have had this one before on a client's PC ages ago, but can't remember how I got rid of it.

The main thing to identify it is that it starts salm.exe, but the file doesn't show up either in Explorer or CMD or even when started from a CD that has NTFS access.

I tried the Symantec tool for 180Search (I think), but had to leave the client right after that (no idea if it worked). I will go back on Monday and would like to be ready for it.

I know how to use HJT, Process Explorer, KillBox etc. and Regedit, and I'd rather get rid of something manually or at least know how it's done in case an automatic removal program doesn't do the trick.

I tried removing the files while starting from a CD, but the files don't seem to exist, even though they show in HJT as being started and NOT as file missing. I am fluent in CMD prompt and know how to search for hidden files, but with no success here.

Where could these guys be hiding so I can't find them?
How can I find the files?
Are there other Registry entries that HJT doesn't detect that allow files to be started?

Sorry I have no HJT log - I had to leave in a hurry...

Thanks!

I have a virus in system32\userinit.exe. If I run a malware or other type scan it deletes the virus, but the virus comes right back on the next computer start up. I then decided if I could replace the system32\userinit.exe w/a non corrupted one that would take care of it. I think System File Checker can do that, but it asked for the windows XP CD. My computer did not come w/a cd. I was hoping maybe I could download a service pack from microsoft but it is impossible to figure out where to go on that site. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of this bad file and get a new one w/out the CD?

Answer:system32\userinit.exe virus keeps coming back

You probably have a Restore Partition. Hit the F11 Key at bootup to take you to the Restore Partition, this will restore your computer to Factory Defaults. Backup any data you want be for proceeding.
Or you can post in our Security section of this forum to remove the virus.

Basically I follow the method where i restore my PC and then scan my computer with both Malwarebytes and HitmanPro. They both always detect a ton of objects that i delete immediately but a day or two later the virus always comes back.

What i THINK is happening, is i've used a restore point that was set by the virus (I had no others) and so the file remains on my PC maybe in my registry? I've tried everything i know and this is really fustrating me any help would be appreciated.

Another thing i observed (and maybe it means nothing) is that when the virus was about to come into affect my avira detected it in my recycle bin. My recycle bin was empty so does that mean it's being restored from deletion or something?

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.

The virus itself just has a bunch of annoying popups and just keeps changing my chrome settings. Operating System is Windows 8.1 64 bit.. Can someone help?

Answer:Consumer Input virus keeps coming back

Welcome to BC !
The programs below have a good track record of finding and removing most adware and a lot of malware.
Malwarebytes' log of what it removed can be found under the history tab. Please post the results of the scan that you refer to. Also check MBAM's 
settings and be sure that scans for PUPS and Rootkits are enabled. If they weren't, run a new scan with those enabled.
 
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
Click on the Scan button.
AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.

Hello I am new to your forum, computers and the internet so please bear with me

Here is my problem, the other day while I was on msn messenger live I had clicked on to a link that was actually some sort of trojan/virus that was hidden in a file.

My Msn box started to dance all around my screen, and to my suprise, this trojan/virus started to send out the same file to others that where my contacts and had there Msn Live messenger box on at the same time I had, posing it self off as me sending it

Next I did a full scan with my Norton IS 2007 and it picked something up called serviser.exe & [email protected] being as a virus, then it proceeded to clean it out of my system

I then used my Spysweeper and it came up stating I was Infected with W32/IRCBot-xx, I Quarantine such, cleaned out my Quarantine and then proceeded to do more scans how ever after each additional Spysweeper scan was done, this W32/IRCBot-xx would show back up again

Now there after seeing that, I was more then a little upset, so I made a few phone call's to my Grandsons friends, whom are more knowledgeable with computers than I am, they all suggested to me that I should do such scans in safe mode so I did

That did not help either because this darn W32/IRCBot-xx keps coming back and showing up In my Spysweeper

I would like to know if some one here can give a Old Man a tad of a little guidance please with regard to my problem

I have done many scans and cleaning with Norton IS 2007, Spy Swee... Read more

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.

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!

Hello,

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.

Before we start please read and note the following:

At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.
Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.

All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.

I've been working on getting a very nasty virus off my WinXP Home Edition PC.

I initially could not get anything to run. The virus had done the following:
1) Disabled all antivirus software I could run (including Spybot Search & Destroy, MBAM, SuperAntiSpyware, Combofix, Avast to name a few)
2) Windows Update would not run - error message that it could not run in Safe Mode (I was logged in as Administrator in normal boot up)
3) Permissions were changed on many of my files by adding a new group and changing the normal administrator privileges.
4) Changed registry keys to always get safe mode enabled while logged in as Administrator thus not allowing many critical programs to run.

In any case - I was able to get the computer back to running but I still cannot find the virus because it is still lurking and reloads randomly (or seemingly randomly). I've run out of options so I'm posting here to get some help finding where this thing is actually hidden.

Last MBAM log before everything was back to normal (at least for a couple days)

I can get all of these things back by going into gpedit.msc and reenabling regedit and then going into the registry and deleting the offending keys, but it comes back on the next reboot. Please help.

Answer:Heads Up. Mbam cant delete a virus, keeps coming back again.

Update: This laptop does not have internet access for now, so i wont be able to do online scans, but will have to download the update database manually.
Also, this has XP pro SP2 installed. There is no autorun.inf infection happening, as i checked by inserting pendrives in the usb ports, everything came up clean. So i dont know what this fbqjhw.exe is doing.
Thanks for all your hard work in helping us.
In the mean time, i will scan with Avira and AVG bootscan rescue CD's and will keep you updated.

Since July 5th, I have been receiving alerts from AVG saying that the Spyware.Passwords.XGen virus has infected my computer. It keeps setting up its files in the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp folder with a file name of 0.(various assortment of numbers) i.e. "0.2022596356067.exe" as well as the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Microsoft under the name "conhost.exe". I have removed this virus at least 5 times using AVG to quarantine/delete the files and Hitman Pro to remove the proxy server it installs as 127.0.0.1:56364. I run scans immediately after removal and nothing appears. My computer appears to be clean as a whistle. Yet the virus keeps reappearing when I visit certain sites (i.e. hotnewhiphop.com,gotta have my music!) and when it does reappear, I notice the Java icon appears on my taskbar and a process such as "0.55373964797.exe" will run on my computer. Has the virus exploited my Java somehow? Please help!Attached are screenshots of my AVG Virus Vault and Hitman Pro scan to better illustrate the problems I am having: Hitman Pro scan 7/5/11 (the first time I deleted this virus)and my AVG Virus Vault that shows all the quarantined .exe files from this virus

2 registered viruses (according to avira) were found initially in the temporary java cache folder, so after that, I removed them with Avira, and set java not to accept temporary files, in its usual "C:\Documents and Settings\ username>\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\" directory.Now, even though this Java directory above is clear, I find 2 files with the exact same "jar_cache" numbers now in the paths below. I initially thought that Avira moved them here: Begin scan in 'C:\' Windows XP>C:\Documents and Settings\Alexander\Local Settings\Temp\jar_cache3228428661962348376.tmp[0] Archive type: ZIP [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virus--> bpac/a.class [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virusC:\Documents and Settings\Alexander\Local Settings\Temp\jar_cache6153414522020360556.tmp[0] Archive type: ZIP [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virus--> bpac/a.class [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virusI can of course remove them again, but what I am wondering is, if it is safe to remove delete absolutely all content from this Local Settings\Temp\ folder, and secondly, why I am receiving the same files yet again in different directories (user temp folder instead of temp java deployment folder)- if Avira is likely to be reporting false positives (the program is set to its normal protective mode). thanks

You could try CCleaner with the third party CCEnhancer add on.I'm sure CCEnhancer has a Java Cache clearout option.

No other real symptoms other then keeping my firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials from being connected to the internet and being on real-time.

Also I have no easy access to a windows boot disc at this time.

I know this problem has been posted before (EX: techguy.org/1032793), but I'm not seeing a sufficient answer for it as it pertains to me. So this is me posting on behalf of myself.

I did all the suggestions from BleepingComputer.com... it fixes the problem for a couple days, but then it comes back which makes me think it's not been completely removed properly in the first place. I do not use Limewire or Kazaa. I try to be responsible and only download things from reputable sources. I am not seeing a pattern in my behavior as it relates to this virus. I normally don't get viruses, and the handful of malware is usually taken care of by Spybot. I don't usually have these problems, let alone have one that can't be easily fixed.

Is this a virus or is it malware or both or what?
Where does it come from to begin with?
Why does it keep coming back?

Maybe if I understood it better I could prevent getting it again.
Please help, this one is driving me crazy!
