Suspected explorer.exe issue

Post by megz1621 on Tue 11 Oct 2011, 5:35 am

Hi,
I am currently dealing with my very first virus (lucky me!), and would greatly appreciate any help I can get!
I'm running Windows Vista, and I was running Trend Micro Titanium until about 36 hours ago.
I'm not completely sure what it is that I have, but it is blocking just about every anti-virus program I throw at it. It will not allow me to open Trend at all, and it will not allow me to scan using Malwarebytes (though it will block things for me for a limited period of time.) It won't allow me to install AVG at all.
The notices I get from Malwarebytes (while it's working) say that they are blocking outgoing connection attempts from explorer.exe to several different IP addresses (which I can post here if it would be helpful).
I am also getting queries from the system asking if I want to open navcancl, which it says is an ieframe.dll
Furthermore, my Google search results are being tampered with, and sending me to all sorts of scammy looking search engines (reloading the page generally takes me to the correct URL though).
I have tried opening Trend and Malwarebytes in Safe Mode, but that has also failed. Malwarebytes will open, but will quit about 5 seconds after I start scanning (as soon as it gets to the infected file, I suspect).

I have also tried all three of the diagnostic tools recommended in the "read before posting" sticky, but two of them quit before they finished (OTL and Avast), and the third just sat there saying "collecting information" and then "preparing done!" but it didn't give me a notepad document?

Any insights into what I might try next?
Thank you!!!

Hello and welcome to GeekPolice.Net My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
*****************************************************************
Please download and run the below tool named Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) which may help allow other programs to run.
Save Rkill to your desktop.

There are 7 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.

Vista and Win7 users need to right click Rkill and choose Run as Administrator


You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

* Rkill.exe
* Rkill.com
* Rkill.scr
* WiNlOgOn.exe
* uSeRiNiT.exe
* iExplore.exe
* eXplorer.exe
Once you've gotten one of them to run then try to immediately run the following.
**********************************************************************
Download Security Check by screen317 from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2

* Unzip SecurityCheck.zip and a folder named Security Check should appear.
* Open the Security Check folder and double-click Security Check.bat
* Follow the on-screen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt
* Post the contents of that document in your next reply.

Note: If a security program requests permission from dig.exe to access the Internet, allow it to do so.
*************************************************************
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from here.
Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Extra Note)
  • Please save the log to a location you will remember.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply.

Extra Note:

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Hi Dave!

Thanks for your help.
I just have two quick questions about your instructions:
- Security Check is appearing as an .exe, not a .zip. Is that correct?
- How long does it usually take for Security Check to work? I had some success with rkill (in that it seems to have produced a log?), but Security Check doesn't go past the "Preparing Done" stage, and has yet to provide a notepad file.

Thanks!

Yes, I will have to change my canned speech for Security Check. It took five minutes to run it on my computer. Please just skip Security Check for the moment and tell me what Anti-Virus are you running on your computer. I saw a reference to Kaspersky but I wasn't sure.
The important thing is to try to run MBAM and post the log.

Hi Dave,
I just rebooted because I was having no luck getting a.) Security Check to tell me anything or b.) getting (already installed) Malwarebytes to run. I uninstalled Malwarebytes before restarting, and then rebooted - now I can't get any of the 7 Rkills to work. I see the little black box pop up, but it goes away immediately. After that, their icons change to unknown data file (as opposed to exe) icons, and a tiny box in the corner showing two people (one in a green shirt, one in a blue shirt) appears. I then cannot do anything more with the files, because "Windows cannot access the specified device."

I have also tried to reinstall MBAM, but 4 seconds into the scan, the window closes. It seems that by rebooting things I've actually made everything much worse. I wonder if the reason I got Rkill working before was because MBAM was working in the background (blocking IP connections, but the console wouldn't open).

Two questions: would switching to Safe Mode help at all? And should I turn off Spybot? (the only utility that's continued to work through all of this) Spybot isn't giving me any errors or popups, but I thought it might be possible that it was blocking things in the background.

I was using Trend Micro Titanium, but I haven't been able to open it at all since I got whatever this is.

Please try running MBAM in Safe Mode.

Save these instructions so you can have access to them while in Safe Mode.

Please click here to download AVP Tool by Kaspersky.

  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Reboot your computer into SafeMode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight SafeMode then hit enter.
  • Double click the setup file to run it.
  • Click Next to continue.
  • Accept the License agreement and click on next.
  • It will, by default, install it to your desktop folder. Click Next.
  • It will then open a box There will be a tab that says Automatic scan.
  • Under Automatic scan make sure these are checked.

  • Hidden Startup Objects
  • System Memory
  • Disk Boot Sectors.
  • My Computer.
  • Also any other drives (Removable that you may have)

Leave the rest of the settings as they appear as default.
•Then click on Scan at the to right hand Corner.
•It will automatically Neutralize any objects found.
•If some objects are left un-neutralized then click the button that says Neutralize all
•If it says it cannot be neutralized then choose the delete option when prompted.
•After that is done click on the reports button at the bottom and save it to file name it Kas.
•Save it somewhere convenient like your desktop and just post only the detected Virus\malware in the report it will be at the very top under Detected post those results in your next reply.

Note: This tool will self uninstall when you close it so please save the log before closing it.

Hi Dave,
I will try Kaspersky tomorrow. I had some success running Malwarebytes in Safe Mode.
I'm not sure why it says "no action taken," as I did ask it to remove the infected items.

Can you run MBAM again but this time in Normal Mode?

Hi Dave,
I ran Kaspersky in safe mode last night - it took about 12 hrs, but it worked. Mostly it seemed to be finding Win32 Trojans. I saved the log, but it doesn't seem to include the things it removed? I'm concerned I saved the wrong log. This one lists which files were "OK" and which were "Locked," but I don't see any listing for the ones it removed or disinfected. There were some parts that it was going to remove upon restart, but I think it was unable to do so. I believe the error was kl1. Most items it found I was either able to disinfect or delete though. (There were probably around 15?)
I have tried running MBAM in normal mode, and while it's running in the background, the console still won't load. It's stopped giving me the error about not having permission to access it when I try to open it though.

It seems like things are getting better, but obviously there are still problems. Should I re-try all of those initial diagnostics again, and see if I can get them to work?

Ok. Let's try running this one.

Download DDS from HERE or HERE and save it to your desktop.

Vista users right click on dds and select Run as administrator (you will receive a UAC prompt, please allow it)

* XP users Double click on dds to run it.
* If your antivirus or firewall try to block DDS then please allow it to run.
* When finished DDS will open two (2) logs.
* Save both reports to your desktop.
* The instructions here ask you to attach the Attach.txt.



1) DDS.txt
2) Attach.txt
Instead of attaching, please copy/past both logs into your Thread

Note: DDS will instruct you to post the Attach.txt log as an attachment.
Please just post it as you would any other log by copying and pasting it into the reply.

•Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.

Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.
After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection.
Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.
Information on A/V control HERE .Then post your DDS logs. (DDS.txt and Attach.txt )

Re: Suspected explorer.exe issue

Post by Superdave on Fri 14 Oct 2011, 6:36 am

The logs show that you only have 17.5 Gb of free space on your C drive. MS requires 15% or more (28 Gb) in order to function properly. You will need to find some way of freeing up some space on that drive. You can do that by uninstalling unused programs and off-loading important files, pictures, videos and music to DVD's or an external harddrive.

Update Your Java (JRE)

Old versions of Java have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.


First Verify your Java Version

If there are any other version(s) installed then update now.

Get the new version (if needed)

If your version is out of date install the newest version of the Sun Java Runtime Environment.

Note: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

Be sure to close ALL open web browsers before starting the installation.

Remove any old versions

1. Download JavaRa and unzip the file to your Desktop.
2. Open JavaRA.exe and choose Remove Older Versions
3. Once complete exit JavaRA.

Additional Note: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. To disable the JQS service if you don't want to use it, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and reboot your computer.
************************************************
You have Viewpoint installed.

Viewpoint Media Player/Manager/Toolbar is considered as Foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad".

More information:

* ViewMgr.exe - Useless
* Viewpoint to Plunge Into Adware

It is suggested to remove the program now. Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs - (Vista & Win7 is Programs and Features) and remove the following programs if present.

* Viewpoint
* Viewpoint Manager
* Viewpoint Media Player
* Viewpoint Toolbar
* Viewpoint Experience Technology

***********************************************
Download OTL to your desktop.

* Open OTL
* Copy and Paste the following text in the codebox into the Custom Scans/Fixes window.

Code:
:OTL

* Click Run Fix
* OTLI2 may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.
* Click OK
* A report will open. Copy and Paste that report in your next reply.
*****************************************************
Download ComboFix by sUBs from one of the below links. Be sure to save it to the Desktop.

link # 1
Link # 2
If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

* Tools->Options->Main tab
* Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

Close any open web browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) before starting ComboFix.

Temporarily disable your anti-virus, and any anti-spyware real-time protection before performing a scan. Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.

Right-click combofix.exe and select Run as Administrator and follow the prompts.
When finished, ComboFix will produce a log for you.
Post the ComboFix login your next reply.

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

Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware protection when ComboFix is complete.

Hi Dave,
OTL results were:
========== OTL ==========
========== COMMANDS ==========
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\Hosts moved successfully.
HOSTS file reset successfully

OTL by OldTimer - Version 3.2.29.1 log created on 10132011_212126



I only barely caught what it said before restarting, but ComboFix said I had a "Zero Success (Access?) RootKit" issue, which it implied was not particularly desirable. Its log was as follows:

Hi Dave,
I seem to be running into problems again - SysProt "unexpectedly stops working" a minute or so after I start the scan.
Should I be disabling anti-virus software for this scan?

Please try this one.

* Download the following tool: RootRepeal - Rootkit Detector
* Direct download link is here: RootRepeal.zip

* Close all programs and temporarily disable your anti-virus, Firewall and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan.
* Click this link to see a list of such programs and how to disable them.

* Extract the program file to a new folder such as C:\RootRepeal
* Run the program RootRepeal.exe and go to the REPORT tab and click on the Scan button.
* Select ALL of the checkboxes and then click OK and it will start scanning your system.
* If you have multiple drives you only need to check the C: drive or the one Windows is installed on.
* When done, click on Save Report
* Save it to the same location where you ran it from, such as C:RootRepeal
* Save it as rootrepeal.txt
* Then open that log and select all and copy/paste it back on your next reply please.
* Close RootRepeal.

Hi Dave,
I seem to be having some problems with RootRepeal too. It gets to winsxs\Manifests, and then it seems to hang. The first time the program stopped working altogether, and the second time (after getting caught at that point for 30 mins or so), I tried to pause it to see if I could generate a log for what it had scanned up to that point. Unfortunately, it was unable to pause, and the program stopped working.

Hi Dave,
The weird activity has settled down - no more Internet problems, and Malwarebytes is no longer reporting malware attempts to access the internet.

I still can't get Trend Micro to load at all (should I attempt a reinstall? it shows me the opening screen, but the console never appears, and it won't load at startup), and there are still a lot of inaccessible folders that I believe were created after I got the virus.

I'm also wondering how to tell if there's still a RootKit issue? I thought that one of the scans identified it, but wasn't able to fix it?

I'm still concerned because you were not able to run an anti-rootkit scan. Please try this one.

Perform an anti-rootkit (ARK) scan with one of the following:
AVG Anti-Rootkit

Before performing an ARK scan it is recommended to do the following to ensure more accurate results and avoid common issues that may cause false detections.
Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug you Internet cable connection.
Clean out your temporary files.
Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
•Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
•After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
•When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
Note: Not all hidden components detected by ARKs are malicious. It is normal for a Firewall, some Anti-virus and Anti-malware software (ProcessGuard, Prevx1, AVG AS), sandboxes, virtual machines and Host based Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS) to hook into the OS kernal/SSDT in order to protect your system. You should not be alarmed if you see any hidden entries created by these software programs after performing a scan.

Hi Dave,
I performed the scan as you suggested.
The program wouldn't load on its own, but it worked when I ran it as an administrator? I'm not sure what that's about.
The rootkit scan did not find anything. Since I already had everything disabled though, I decided to run the full scan too - and it would not complete. It stopped working when it got to the application data section. (and at the exact same spot when I tried it again).

Yes, please reinstall it and let me know what happens.

Let's run a few more scans to see what turns up.

Please download aswMBR.exe ( 511KB ) to your desktop.

Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it

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

Click the "Scan" button to start scan

Note: Do not take action against any **Rootkit** entries until I have reviewed the log. Often there are false positives

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

On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply
