Security tool removal - failed

Security tool removal - failed

Sneakyone was nice enough to post the entire path to a PC without 'Security Tool'. Greatly appreciated.

But..... after completion of the tutorial, to quote an old movie, "It's baaaaack."

One thing that I had to do, which may have messed it up was, I had to download RKill & OTL on one PC, then using a USB flash drive, transfer it to the desktop of the infected PC. The bad PC wouldn't let me do anything.

Seemed to work, ran the scan and whatever else there was and when it finished, I had 2 text files on my desktop; OTL & Extras. Copied those onto the flash drive and transferred those to the good PC so I could send them to you. (I'm told that the OTL text file; OTL, is not valid, so I'm adding it to this post. Don't know what else to do.) If you need the Extra file, I send it in another post to this thread.

OK, I'm real close to forgetting about this post. I tried to add the OTL at the bottom of this post but I was told that it is too big. EVEN THOUGH.... it says on the bottom of the post that I have Characters Left: 288. I can send them by email if you want or need them but this site isn't letting me do what I need to do.

I restarted the infected PC and yep, it was still infected. Any ideas of what I did wrong and how can I fix it?

Thanks to all the folks here who donate their time and expertise to help us who really need it.

Hello, and welcome to GeekPolice.

Please note the following information about the malware forum:
  • Only Tech Officers, Global Moderators, Administrators, and Malware Advisors are allowed to give advice on removing malware from your computer.
  • 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 the staff I noted above.
  • 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.
  • If you have already asked for help somewhere, please post the link to the topic you were helped.
  • We try our best to reply quickly, but for any reason we do not reply in two days, do one of two things:

    Reply to this topic with the word BUMP, or
    see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

  • Lastly, keep in mind that we are volunteers, so you do not have to pay for malware removal. Persist in this topic until its close, and your computer is declared clean.





We need to do some diagnostics to get started.

1. Please download and run RKill.

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

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click the RKill desktop icon.
  • It will quickly run and launch a log. If it does not launch a log, try another download link until it does.
  • Please post its log in your next reply.
  • After it has run successfully, delete RKill.

Note: This tool only kills the active infection, the actual infection will not be gone. Once you reboot the infection will be active again! Please do not reboot until instructed further to do so.

2. Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your desktop.
  • Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (Vista and Windows 7 users, right click and select Run as Administrator).
  • It will show a black screen with some data on it.
  • A report called MBRcheckxxxx.txt will be on your desktop
  • Open this report and post its content in your next reply.


3. Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by me, and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on Cheetah-Anti-Rogue.zip, and extract the file to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on Cheetah-Anti-Rogue.cmd to start.
  • It will finish quickly and launch a log.
  • Post the contents of it in your next reply.


4. In your next reply, please post the following logs for my review:
  • MBRCheck log (2)
  • Cheetah log (3)


Thanks! Smile

I don't see either report. If you are having trouble getting the reports to me, then upload them via Rapidshare.com and post the download links here.

I ran mbam and found 1 infected file, got rid of it. For some reason, the PC restarted on it's own. So I and ran mbam again and it didn't find any infected files.

After the OTL scan, there was no "Extras file".

The OTL is here at Rapidshare.

Please run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, copy and paste in the following:

    :otl
    O4 - HKCU..\RunOnce: [733582] C:\Users\Heather\AppData\Local\733582.exe ()
    [2010/07/27 03:41:00 | 000,000,120 | ---- | M] () -- C:\Users\Heather\AppData\Local\Okatisohahozewuj.dat
    @Alternate Data Stream - 103 bytes -> C:\ProgramData\TEMP:DFC5A2B2

    :commands
    [emptytemp]
    [purity]
    [resethosts]
    [reboot]


  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top.
  • Note: The fix for OTL automatically hides your Desktop and Start menu so the fix can be completed. Do not be alerted, this is normal.
  • Please do not exit the program. It might take a while to fix, but allow it to run. If it asks to reboot the computer, allow it to reboot. If the program freezes, and the computer fails to reboot - let me know.
    Lastly, post the contents of the log. (Located at C:\_OTL\Moved Files)

Just to let you know, when I rebooted, I forgot to put it into "Safe Mode".

I'm looking at a nice clear desktop. No pop-ups so far. I haven't touched a thing. (A little afraid to.)

I was using a Kensington Orbit USB ball mouse and it no longer is working. (It's an OK trade off if that virus is gone!!!! I switched to a Logitech USB mouse and it works fine. Might you know what happened to the Kensington and how to fix it or point me to where I can find an answer?

Thanks

Jay,

Here's the eset scan and it looks clean. But what do I know; I'm the one that got myself in trouble in the first place. Smile

C:\_OTL\MovedFiles\08022010_073635\C_Users\Heather\AppData\Local\733582.exe

a variant of Win32/Kryptik.FSA trojan

cleaned by deleting - quarantined


YOU DID IT!!!!! Words fail me when it comes to thanking you enough, but I'll try.

I appreciate your diligence and patience with me. Every time I would reply with a curve ball, your expertise would let you hit a home run. (Sorry 'bout that. It's baseball season and my all time favorites the St. Louis Cardinals and my now local team, the Tampa Bay Rays are doing great.)

On behalf of all you have worked with, thank you for your dedication to helping those of us who really needed assistance. I'll always be grateful.

Thanks again,
Illini Jim

Hiya! If there are no more issues, then we shall clean up!

Clean up System Restore

Now, to get you off to a clean start, we will be creating a new Restore Point, then clearing the old ones to make sure you do not get reinfected, in case you need to "restore back."

To manually create a new Restore Point

  • Go to Control Panel and select System and Maintenance
  • Select System
  • On the left select Advance System Settings and accept the warning if you get one
  • Select System Protection Tab
  • Select Create at the bottom
  • Type in a name i.e. Clean
  • Select Create
Now we can purge the infected ones
  • Go back to the System and Maintenance page
  • Select Performance Information and Tools
  • On the left select Open Disk Cleanup
  • Select Files from all users and accept the warning if you get one
  • In the drop down box select your main drive i.e. C
  • For a few moments the system will make some calculations
  • Select the More Options tab
  • In the System Restore and Shadow Backups select Clean up
  • Select Delete on the pop up
  • Select OK
  • Select Delete


Run OTC to remove our tools

To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer:
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTC.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

Purge old temporary files

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start
    button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp
    files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute
    or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Security Check

Please download Security Check by screen317 from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.


Tell me in your next reply, if you have completed these tasks:
  • Cleaned System Restore
  • Ran OTC
  • Ran TFC
  • Ran Security Check

Also, let me know how your computer is running, and don't forget to post the contents of the Security Check log.

Maybe I'm done????

I cleaned System Restore, ran OTC, ran TFC and Security Check.
All went smoothly except TFC. It ran for about 8-9 minutes and then I got the following message: TFC has stopped working.

I rebooted the PC and ran TFC again. This time it worked well and completed it's task. (It deleted 10 MB of files.)

* Ran OTC
* Ran TFC
* Ran Security Check

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

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.


AntiSpyware

  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    SpywareBlaster is a program that prevents spyware from installing on your computer. A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
    Spybot - Search & Destroy is a spyware and adware removal program. It also has realtime protection, TeaTimer to help safeguard your computer against spyware. (The link for Spybot - Search & Destroy contains a tutorial that will help you download, install, and begin using Spybot).


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.

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.

If you are interested:
