Brower hijack by "anti-virus scanner"

Post by econdrone on Fri Oct 16, 2009 12:32 am

In somewhat of a panic I shut down my browser as soon as it was hijacked. It looked like it was scanning my computer. I can't remember any specific details other than the fact that I got a phony error message that led me to a "quick scan for viruses" on my computer.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

I downloaded Hijack this and did a scan, the follownig is my log:

Re: Brower hijack by "anti-virus scanner"

Welcome to GeekPolice. We are here to save you money. Our expertise here can help you get rid of threats.

From this point on, please do not make any more changes to your computer; such as install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc. - unless advised by a Tech Staff member, administrator, or moderator. Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.

As this topic is for you only, I just need to issue a warning to outside readers:
Roger that Warning: Instructions issued in this topic are for this user only. We are not responsible for damages, so if you need help; please register for this site, and start a new topic requesting help.




Please download ComboFix from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop


  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective
    programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.


**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.




Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:




Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

When ComboFix was scanning my machine, I got a notice saying that the command prompt stopped working.

Also, I lost my connection to the Internet.

Hi

Simply restart your computer, and the Internet Connection should return.

As part of its process, ComboFix disables the Internet connection, because any trojans that are on your machine cannot download more malware on to your computer. Some trojans attempt to download malware on to your machine making it even more infected. ComboFix is safe and will clean itself up, so go ahead and run it. ComboFix normally reboots, allow it to finish, then post the log in your next reply - please. Smile

I tried running it 4 times, and waited several minutes to reboot after it crashed, with no results. Is there anything you know of I can do to fix this?


Thank You!

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and save it to your Desktop. Do NOT perform a scan yet

  • Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program.
    An Express Scan of your PC notice will appear.
  • Under Start the Express Scan Now, Click OK to start the scan.
    This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory.
    If something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the Scan tab and UNcheck Heuristic analysis
  • Back at the main window, click Custom Scan, then Select drives (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen).
  • Then click the Start/Stop Scanning button (green arrow on the right, and the scan will start.
  • When finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
  • Click Yes to all if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found.
    If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable.
    (This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
  • Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your Desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when you have finished.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)
