Registry Key Infected

Post by Tiggy on Tue Jan 26, 2010 2:26 pm

My computer has been running sluggish lately. So I ran a Spyware program(Superanti Spyware) and it discovered nothing. So I ran Malwarebytes and it found 1 Registry key so I removed it and my computer started running normally again. However, on my next reboot the computer was running sluggish again and I ran Malwarebytes again and it found the same registry key infection.

Here is my Malwarebytes log file:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44
Database version: 3640
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2
Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13

Registry Values Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Registry Data Items Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Folders Infected:

Even though it says it is removed it really isn't cause it pops up after every scan.

Ok I followed the instructions and downloaded Combofix and then ran it. I made sure my firewall and antiviruses were turned off. I then got an error message about half way through the scan that said Combofix must restart because it has detected a Rootkit. It then restarted my computer and its been blue screening ever since. It won't even allow me to get into safe mode or run normally and the recovery console blue screens as well.

The Technical Information on the blue screen was:

Stop: 0x000000CE (0xBA3BABDE, 0x00000008, 0xBA3BABDE, 0x00000000)
Fdc.sys

That is weird. Why would ComboFix delete the Floppy Disk Controller driver? I have reported that info to the developer.

Well, anyway, we will have to do a system repair. All of your data will be fine.

Do you have your XP disc?

  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the Recovery Console command prompt,

Type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press "Enter".

Type dir and press "Enter".

After
you press enter you will see a list of folders (like rp1, rp2) If the
list of restore points has more than one page then press the "Enter" key until you reach the end of the list


Type cd rp {number of the second to last folder in the list} and press "Enter".
Note: Example: cd rp9 if the last restore point is rp10

Type cd snapshot and press "Enter".

Type copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system and press "Enter".

Type copy _registry_machine_software c:\windows\system32\config\software and press "Enter".

Type exit and press "Enter".

Your PC will reboot.

=======================

If you get an access denied error when doing the above, then do the following at the recovery console:

Type cd \ and press "Enter".

Type cd windows\system32\config and press "Enter".

Type ren system system.bak and press "Enter".

Type exit and press "Enter".

Your PC will reboot, go back into the Recovery Console and start from the beginning.

When I boot from the CD and get to the Recovery Console the only installation option is: 1: C:\Windows. So I chose #1 and then when I type: cd system~1\_resto~1 it says that the system can not find the file or directory.

Also when I do this: Type ren system system.bak and press "Enter". It says that: "A file or directory with the name system.bak already exists."

DIR /a/s C:\WINDOWS\fdc.sys

actually anything I do with DIR /a/s comes up with parameters not valid. It does show the volume of the C drive has no name and the serial number but if I just type DIR /a/s it then says C:\a\s The system can not find the file or directory specified.

Since there is already a file named System.bak is it possible to rename the system to something else like system.bac or would that really mess up something else?

I will try that when I get back to work. What exactly should I be looking for it to do?

It should give you the location(s) of that file.

If that phrase does not work then try this one as well:

dir C:\windows\system32\drivers\fdc.sys

However when i did DIR C:\Windows\System32\drivers\fdc.sys it said:

08/04/04 06:00a -a------ 27392 FDC.SYS

I have tried to ren system system.bak but it keeps saying there is a file with that name already. When I checked the dir I found a file named System and one named System.bak and both have the same date on them, same file size, but the system.bak was created 1 minute after the System file. Could it be possilbe to rename system something else so that the cd system~1/_resto~1 can work?

Ok. Please open the computer tower and unhook the floppy disk drive. Then, see if the computer can boot up.

To do this, please follow these instructions:

  • Open the computer tower, touch an unpainted metal surface, and find the cable that goes to the floppy drive, and disconnect it.
  • Then, close the computer case and start the computer. Does it blue screen now?

Yes it still blue screens with the floppy drive unplugged.

The error message on the blue screen says:

Driver_Unloaded_Without_cancelling_pending_operation

I know it says not to reply to your own threads but I was thinking of a solution. Instead of doing "ren system system.bak" could I just rename the driver that is causing the error? For example: "ren fdc.sys fdc.old" Or am I going down the wrong thought process here?

Might later.

Anyway, time to do a "ComboFix undo" - to reverse the changes ComboFix did.

1.Please reboot into Recovery Console as you did before.

2.You must enter which Windows installation to log onto. Type 1 and press Enter.

3.At the C:\Windows prompt, type the following bolded command, and press Enter:

set allowallpaths = true

4.At the next prompt type without the quotes "cd erdnt\subs" and hit Enter.

5.At the next prompt, please type in the following without the quotes: "batch erdnt.con" and hit Enter.

The erunt backups should begin copying backup files. At the next prompt after it is complete, Type exit.

Shut down. Hook up the floppy drive again.

kindly reboot your pc and tell me if Windows is loading now

No it is still blue screening. With the same error.

Make sure to see the spaces in between these items.

In the recovery console, place in exactly:

copy C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\fdc.inf_0c3c0ab2 C:\

ren C:\fdc.inf_0c3c0ab2 fdc.sys

copy C:\fdc.sys C:\windows\system32\drivers\fdc.sys

I typed in: copy C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\fdc.inf_0c3c0ab2 C:\
And it said the system can not find the file specified.


Edit: It looks like i do not have a Driverstore in my system32 directory.

Did you say you can or cannot boot to the XP setup?

I recommend a repair install: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I can't boot into windows though either through safemode or regular. It takes me to the windows screen but the scroll bar doesn't move and then after about 5 seconds on the windows screen it goes to the BSoD.

In regards to your other instructions, as I said, I don't have a DriverStore but I do have a DrvStore. However, it does not have a FileRepository in it.

Would doing this do anythign for me?

rmdir c:\windows\prefetch

md c:\windows\prefetch




Or back to my renaming the troubled driver would it work if I did:

cd c:\windows\system32\drivers

ren fdc.sys fdc.old

copy c:\windows\system32\dllcache\fdc.sys c:\

Course at that point I don't know if I just reboot or if I need to recopy back into the windows/system32/drivers directory a second time?

Update:

I didn't try my above idea cause i wasn't 100% sure if it would work or make things worse. But what I did do was got into the BIOS and switched my floppy drive controller from Internal to USB and it allowed windows to boot up. However, ComboFix is now finishing its original scan that I started yesterday. Is that a good thing or bad thing? I guess at this point it doesn't matter cause I am to afraid to cancel the scan.

Edit: ComboFix scan completed. It deleted a file in the system32/drivers directory but it went to fast I couldn't read it. It also said that the c:\windows\system32\drivers\fdc.sys is infected and it will restore it. Then after about 3 minutes it went to my desktop with no desktop icons on it and then a mini cmd blue screen came up that says "Rebooting Windows....Please Wait" However, that rebooting windows screen has been up now for about 20minutes. Any suggestions or should I manually reboot windows.

Note: The computer is not locked up though which is why I am hesitant to manually reboot it myself.

Go ahead and manually reboot. After that file gets restored, it should be fine.

ComboFix should not freeze up.
