    Would you like to make it not your default browser?" popup

    If you do not use Windows Messenger Run this Disable/Remove Windows Messenger to remove Windows Messenger. Do not confuse Windows Messenger with MSN Messenger because they are not the same. Windows Messenger is a frequent cause of popups.

    Hi Kestrel13

    I double click and run and nothing happens.
    I even renamed the extension .com and still
    Nothing. Also, tried to run in safe mode.

    There are 54 of them I don't see the 3 specific ones you want deleted.
    I see 5 with "Keys"

    Good afternoon infected. This *should* take just one more fix!


    Download Combofix to your desktop. Do NOT run it by double clicking it. Disable your antivirus before doing the below!


    Now we need to use ComboFix by sUBs

    • Make sure that combofix.exe that you downloaded while doing the READ & RUN ME is on your Desktop but Do not run it!
      • If it is not on your Desktop, the below will not work.
    • Also make sure you have shut down all protection software (antivirus, antispyware...etc) or they may get in the way of allowing ComboFix to run properly.
    • If ComboFix tells you it needs to update to a new version, make sure you allow it to update.
    • Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the below quote box. Ensure you scroll down to select ALL the lines:
    Code:
    KILLALL::
    
    Registry::
    [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-4113887528-529173203-4290803090-1006\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run]
    "Vyadlyesy"=-
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "Vyadlyesy"=-
    • Save the above as CFscript.txt and make sure you save it to the same location (should be on your Desktop) as ComboFix.exe
    • At this point, you MUST EXIT ALL BROWSERS NOW before continuing!
    • You should have both the ComboFix.exe and CFScript.txt icons on your Desktop.
    • Now use your mouse to drag CFscript.txt on top of ComboFix.exe

      [​IMG]

    • Follow the prompts.
    • When it finishes, a log will be produced named c:\combofix.txt
    • I will ask for this log below

    Note:

    Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

    If after running Combofix you discover none of your programs will open up, and you recieve the following error: "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion". Then the answer is to REBOOT the machine, and all will be corrected.


    Now run RogueKiller again and attach the log.

    Now run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it. (Right click and run as admin if using Vista or Windows7) Then attach the new C:\MGlogs.zip file that will be created by running this.

    I want you to run TDSSKiller so refer to the below for how to do so.

    TDSSkiller - How to run


    Please also download MBRCheck to your desktop
    • Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (vista and Win 7 right click and select Run as Administrator)
    • It will show a Black screen with some information that will contain either the below line if no problem is found:
      • Done! Press ENTER to exit...
    • Or you will see more information like below if a problem is found:
      • Found non-standard or infected MBR.
      • Enter 'Y' and hit ENTER for more options, or 'N' to exit:
    • Either way, just choose to exit the program at this point since we want to see only the scan results to begin with.
    • MBRCheck will create a log named similar to MBRCheck_07.16.10_00.32.33.txt which is random based on date and time.

    Damn, infected, you have an MBR infection. I suspected this, and MBRCheck has confirmed it. You got your XP boot CD?

    Looks like I'm screwed...
    No it's an Asus 10" netbook, no recovery disk with it.
    No CD/DVD reader.
    I was just on the line with Asus support, and they tried to walk me thru
    to restore Xp, but only got thru to first step to disable "Boot Booster"
    was not able to get next step, hit F9 repeatedly when starting up, but it just booted up.
    I'll take it to my local repair store to get it re-stored.

    Thanks for all your help, Kestrel13!

    Let's just have a stab at trying it without the CD, which I do not expect to work, but if you are willing to have a bash, let's go.

    Earlier on ComboFix installed the Recovery Console. We're going to use that now.

    Reboot your machine and when the Boot Menu flashes up - select "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console"
    (you need to be very fast with the arrow key as you only have a couple of seconds before it defaults to the windows XP bootup)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    When you get to the above screen, take note of the number that references your operating system.

    If it's '1' like the picture above, type 1 and press Enter

    [​IMG]

    Next type FIXMBR

    If it ask if you're sure you want to write a new MBR, answer 'Y'

    Then type EXIT to reboot the machine.


    Now run MBRCheck afresh and attach the new log.

    Hi K13,

    Sorry, I may have screwed something up.
    I was trying and managed to get TDSSKILLER to run:
    - I ran it in Safe Mode with Networking option and it ran.
    - I realized I missed the additional options and tried to restart the scan
    and I'm not sure what happened but long story short when I rebooted
    Symantic Ghost 32 11.0 kicked in and re-installed Xp.
    - I have now re-installed Mbrcheck and TDSKiller (which I can run without Safe mode) and re-run them and am attaching the logs.
    It looks like mbrcheck log say that there is still a problem.

    The MBRCheck logs shows no problems where as the last log DEFINATELY showed a prob. This is great news, but I'm still wanting to check again. Let's get a second opinion.

    Run RogueKiller again and attach the log.

    Hi K13,

    my brother-in-law (who's a bit of a minor geek) was over and he replaced the mbr for me.
    I've run the mbrcheck and here's the latest log.

    Thanks! I2k

    Hi infected. :)

    Well good on your bro in law, but we already did it between us earlier. I would say now at this point, all looks great, and if you are ready to follow final steps below, go ahead. ;)

    If you are not having any other malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
    1. We recommend you keep SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. Unless you purchase them, they provide no protection. They do not use any significant amount of resources ( except a little disk space ) until you run a scan.
    2. If we had you use ComboFix, uninstall ComboFix (This uninstall will only work as written if you installed ComboFix on your Desktop like we requested.)
      • Click START then RUN and enter the below into the run box and then click OK. Note the quotes are required
      • "%userprofile%\Desktop\combofix" /uninstall
        • Notes: The space between the combofix" and the /uninstall, it must be there.
        • This will uninstall ComboFix and also reset hidden files and folders settings back to Windows defaults.
    3. Go back to step 6 of the READ ME and renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it.
    4. Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
    5. If we had you download any registry patches like fixme.reg or fixWLK.reg (or any others), you can delete these files now.
    6. If running Vista, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
    7. Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis.
    8. Goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders
      related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
    9. If you are running Win 7, Vista, Windows XP or Windows ME, do the below:
      • Refer to the cleaning procedures pointed to by step 7 of the READ ME
        for your Window version and see the instructions to Disable System Restore which will flush your Restore Points.
      • Then reboot and Enable System Restore to create a new clean Restore Point.
    10. After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:
