Posted 22 June 2011 - 02:39 PM

A mate has asked me to sort his system, he had some people stay over for a bit and allowed they're kids to use his system, and he is one who loves to help if he can, but the end result is he was absolutely riddled with nasties, it's taken me all day cleaning etc to get it into some kind of shape, but it still keeps exhibiting hijack behaviour, especially when trying to get help.

I had to download Hijack This on my system then transfer it over, as his results kept getting jacked, as per usual I have forgotten all the names involved, just tried looking at the mbam logs, only to find the logs were not enabled at the time of repairing, I have now enabled them, but it now reports the system to be clean, Avast often came up with blocked Trojan messages etc, it lists a lot of what it did, but I can't see how to copy the log to show it here, but I have ran multiple scans with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast! Free Antivirus and SUPERAntiSpyware, ALL found and removed numerous infections, but there is still something not right.

Another point to note, using 4 junk file cleaners, Disk Cleaner, CCleaner, CleanUp and ATF-Cleaner, CleanUp seems to find masses of temp files every time, I have never seen that happen before, so I figure it's his hijacker creating them, and Secunia will not load, I have installed it, it runs, it update new findings etc, but when I try to launch it to see the results it shuts down as soon as it opens, it does not crash, it keeps working, it just wont open to view the results, so any help would be great.

Let's give it a go.

  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Under Custom Scan paste this in

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %PROGRAMFILES%\bak. /s
    %systemroot%\system32\bak. /s
    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\*.lnk /x
    %systemroot%\system32\config\systemprofile\*.dat /x
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\*.lnk /x
    %PROGRAMFILES%\Common Files\*.*
    %APPDATA%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\*.lnk /x
    %PROGRAMFILES%\Internet Explorer\*.tmp
    %PROGRAMFILES%\Internet Explorer\*.dat
    %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\*.exe
    %systemroot%\SECURITY\Database\*.sdb /x

    %PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox\*.dat
    %USERPROFILE%\Cookies\*.txt /x
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install|LastSuccessTime /rs

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.
  • You may need two posts to fit them both in.

  • Please download Rootkit Unhooker and save it to your desktop.
    Link 1

  • Now double-click on RKUnhookerLE.exe to run it.
  • Click the Report tab, then click Scan.
  • Check (Tick) Drivers and Stealth
  • Uncheck the rest. then click OK
  • When prompted to Select Disks for Scan, make sure C:\ is checked and click OK
  • Wait till the scanner has finished and then click File > Save Report.
  • Save the report somewhere where you can find it. Click Close.
  • Copy the entire contents of the report and paste it in your next reply.

Note** you may get the following warning, just click OK and continue.

"Rootkit Unhooker has detected a parasite inside itself!
It is recommended to remove parasite, okay?"

Hi, Thanks for this, sorry for a slow reply, I am snowed under with stuff I have to get done, and to that end it will be next week before I can give this a go, I'm away to help a mate all weekend (from tomorrow), then will need to get the problem system to do as you ask, but in the words of Arnie, "I*'ll be back" lol, again sorry for the delays.
