Multiple "iexplore" instances, suspicious adobemedia.exe found

Post by nope on Wed Jan 06, 2010 4:11 am

I was reading through a thread which seemed to cover a very similar problem I've recently encountered on my computer. It can most easily be identified by the multiple instances of "iexplore" spawning.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The first thing I noticed was my Google Desktop flashing, then a message asking if I wanted to make IE my default browser. I checked the task manager and had multiple instances of "iexplore" which I ended but only to have them respawn. I use Google Chrome as my default browser and noticed that any website I tried to access would return a "Web page not available" error. I tried IE and my searches would get redirected, possibly some DNS attack. I tried Firefox and that seemed to have the same issue, could google search but clicking on any result would land me at something like searchquest.com. I ran ATF Cleaner, cleared all for IE and Firefox. I ran Hijackthis, noticed a suspicious "adobemedia.exe" and removed that, but it reappeared upon restarting. I ran Malwarebytes, updated, full-scanned and no infected items appeared. I became worried about leaving my computer connected to the internet so I pulled the network cable and switched over to a crappy spare laptop. However, I noticed the instances of "iexplore" would continue to spawn. As a quick fix for the spawning, I changed the iexplore.exe file to iFAIL.exe and that's working. I'm inclined to say the problem is that adobemedia.exe, but you're the experts, so I'll sit and wait to see what you guys can come up with.

Note:
The first O2 - BHO and the two O8 - Extra context menu items come up with the use of a download manager called Flashget, I assume these are harmless.
The O17 is due to a DNS direction which I entered per recommendation by Time Warner Cable.


In anticipation of having to download ComboFix would you advise is safe to use a USB drive to transfer files to and from this laptop and my infected computer? I had another virus a while back (amv0, I think) and that spread by removable media so I'm hesitant.

In advance, thank you so much for your time!

Re: Multiple "iexplore" instances, suspicious adobemedia.exe found

Post by Dr Jay on Wed Jan 06, 2010 4:25 pm

Re-running ComboFix to remove infections:

  1. Close any open browsers.
  2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  3. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

    File::
    c:\windows\system32\wupd.dat
    c:\windows\system32\wexe.exe
    c:\windows\system32\adobemedia.exe
    c:\windows\system32\PR19.DLL

    Registry::
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "adobemedia.exe"=-

  4. Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe



  5. Referring to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe
  6. When finished, it shall produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt
  7. Please post the contents of the log in your next reply.

Please download the newest version of Java from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Before installing: it is important to remove older versions of Java since it does not do so automatically and old versions still leave you vulnerable.
Go to the Control Panel and enter Add or Remove Programs.
Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment). Please uninstall/remove each of them.

Once old versions are gone, please install the newest version.

Please read the following information that I have provided, which will help you prevent malicious software in the future. Please keep in mind, malware is a continuous danger on the Internet. It is highly important to stay safe while browsing, to prevent re-infection.

Software recommendations

Antivirus/Antispyware

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: this is Microsoft's free antivirus/antispyware program. It equips you with protection against viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, and worms. It is also light on the computer's performance. Note: when installing this, you have both an antivirus and antispyware. Make sure you also get a firewall.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: this is one of the most powerful, and easiest to use security software. The free version equips you with protection against viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, worms, and rogue software. Note: when installing this, you have both an antivirus and antispyware. Make sure you also get a firewall.


Firewall

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: the free version is just as good as the premium. I have linked you to the free version.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: the free version is just as good as the premium. I have linked you to the free version. The optional security suite enhances the firewall by 40% increase. If you would like to install the suite that includes antivirus, then remove your old antivirus first.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]: free and excellent firewall.


Note: Please keep ALL of these programs up-to-date and run them whenever you suspect a problem to prevent malware problems.

Resident Protection help
A number of programs have resident protection and it is a good idea to run the resident protection of one of each type of program to maintain protection. However, it is important to run only one resident program of each type since they can conflict and become less effective. That means only one antivirus, firewall, and scanning anti-spyware program at a time. Passive protectors such as SpywareBlaster can be run with any of them.

Rogue programs help
There are a lot of rogue programs out there that want to scare you into giving them your money and some malware actually claims to be security programs. If you get a popup for a security program that you did not install yourself, do NOT click on it and ask for help immediately. It is very important to run an antivirus and firewall, but you can't always rely on reviews and ads for information. Ask in a security forum that you trust if you are not sure. If you are unsure and looking for anti-spyware programs, you can find out if it is a rogue here:

Securing your computer

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites and other bad sites. This prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1, which is your local computer's loopback address, meaning it will be difficult to infect your computer in the future.


Please consider using an alternate browser
Mozilla's Firefox browser is a very good alternative. In addition to being generally more secure than Internet Explorer, it has a very good built-in popup blocker and add-ons, like NoScript, can make it even more secure. Opera is another good option.
