I have something bad. It has diabled alt-ctrl-del, hijacked my desktop, and makes my start bar disappear. The pop-ups keep taking me to Spystorm or trojandownloader. Help!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the What the tech Forums. My name is peku006. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. HijackThis logs can take a while to research. Please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic. Please stay at one forum for help.
3. Please continue reading posts until I give the All Clear. It is important to note this, as a clean looking HijackThis is not always a sign your system is clean.

Note: As I am still on training, everything that I post to you, must be checked by an Admin or Moderator. Thus, there may be a tiny bit of a delay between posts, but it shouldn't be too long.
MRU Master

Hi GPSeale

1 - Disable some programs

Windows Defender

  • Please disable Windows Defender Real Time Protection as it may interfere with the fix.
    To disable Windows Defender:
  • Open Windows Defender
  • Click Tools
  • Click General Settings
  • Scroll down to Real Time Protection Options
  • Uncheck Turn on Real Time Protection (recommended)
  • Close Windows Defender
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean..

Spysweeper

Please disable SpySweeper as it may interfere with the fix.
  • Open SpySweeper
  • Click Options
  • Click program options
  • Uncheck load at windows startup
  • On the left click shields and uncheck all there
  • Uncheck home page shield
  • Uncheck automaticly restore default without notifiction
  • Close SpySweeper
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean.

2 - rename hijackthis

There is probably an infection which is hiding part of the HijackThis log because it's called hijackthis.exe.
Please rename hijackthis.exe to GPSeale.exe

Using Windows Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options > View tab
Scroll down and UNtick 'Hide extensions for known file types' OK
Then, in Windows Explorer, navigate to: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe
Right-click on HijackThis.exe & select Rename to GPSeale.exe
after you have renamed hijackthis right click on it and create a new shortcut and put it on your desktop

3 - Scan With ComboFix

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix -

http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says -

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows -

  • Close/Disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  • Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

4- Status Check
Please reply with

1. the the ComboFix log
2. a fresh HijackThis log

Thanks peku006

I just got your response. I was looking for an email, instead of checking the thread. I will take the action you suggested this afternoon or evening. Thanks for the help. Greg
