Sick Laptop

Post by racafrustrated on Sun Nov 24, 2013 7:05 pm

Hi again. Love this site.... I have not needed to use it for a few years. But I now have a sick laptop. It is running Windows Vista. The problem that I am having is it locks up every few minutes and forces me to restart it. I have not been able to download and run "AdwCleaner.exe" yet. I will keep working on that and post the results if I can keep it running long enough. Any tips before then would be great. Thanks!

You could try booting in Safe Mode.

Post by Superdave on Mon Nov 25, 2013 1:42 am

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 do this for me. Open your Task Manager and leave it open. The next time it freezes, see if you access the Task Manager and try to determine what is using the most memory.

Download Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your DESKTOP.
If your version of Windows defaults to you download folder you will need to copy it to your desktop.

[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.]

To prevent your anti-virus application interfering with ComboFix we need to disable it. See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for a tutorial regarding how to do so if you are unsure.

  • Close any open windows and double click ComboFix.exe to run it.

    You will see the following image:



Click I Agree to start the program.

ComboFix will then extract the necessary files and you will see this:



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. This will not occur in Windows Vista and 7

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.

If you did not have it installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.



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 will produce a report for you. Please post the contents of the log (C:\ComboFix.txt).

Leave your computer alone while ComboFix is running. ComboFix will restart your computer if malware is found; allow it to do so.

Note: Please Do NOT mouseclick combofix's window while its running because it may cause it to stall.

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and Save it to your desktop.

  • Double click it to start the tool.Vista and Windows7 run as administrator.
  • Click Scan.
  • Eventually, a Notepad file containing the report will open, also found at C:\Rooter.txt. Post that log in your next reply.

Just like before I tried to run the program but it stops working....

"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program....."

I also tried running in safe mode but I get the same problem...

  • If there are problems with Internet access, Windows Update, Windows Firewall or other system issues, run the fixdamage tool located in the folder Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit was run from and reboot your computer.
  • Two files (mbar-log-YYYY-MM-DD, system-log.txt) will be created and saved within that same folder.
  • Copy and paste the contents of these two log files in your next reply.

Uninstall adwcleaner and all those quarantined items will disappear. Check in your programs and see is there's a program called Wajam. If it's there, uninstall it.

I'm afraid that I have some bad news. See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute files

Read this article: Danger: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay and forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one! If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately.

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

Great..... A couple of questions...

1) I have two other desktop computers on a home network, both appear to be working fine. Should I be concerned about them? We also have a varrity of wireless apple devices on the same network, ipad, ipod, iphone etc. Will these be ok?


"...your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted."

2) if I reformat the hard drive and reload the OS can I trust it then?

I think I will take your advise and reformat the hard drive....

Thanks for your help!

They should be ok if they're not showing any signs of infection. If you wish we can run some scans on them later.
if I reformat the hard drive and reload the OS can I trust it then?
Yes, if you do a reformat and re-install.

To wipe the drive clean, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and reinstall the OS.

Do you have any idea how i got the Trojan? Or how I can avoid them?.
It's almost impossible to tell how it was infected.

Question
How does a computer get infected with a virus or spyware?

Answer
There are literally dozens of different ways a computer can become infected with spyware, viruses, and other malware. Below is a list of the most common ways a computer can contract these infections listed in the order we believe are most commonly done.

Tip: All people who use the computer should be aware of how to properly use the computer and protect it from malicious software.

Accepting without reading

By far one of the most common ways a computer becomes infected is the user accepts what he or she sees on the screen without reading the prompt or understand what it's asking.

Some common examples:

1.While browsing the Internet, an Internet advertisement or window appears that says your computer is infected or that a unique plug-in is required. Without fully understanding what it is you're getting, you accept the prompt.
2.When installing or updating a program, you're prompted (often checkboxes already checked) if it's ok to install additional programs that you may not want or are designed to monitor your usage of the program.
Opening e-mail attachments

Another very common way people become infected with viruses and other spyware is by opening e-mail attachments, even when from a co-worker, friend, or family member. E-mail addresses can be faked and even when not faked your acquaintance may unsuspectingly be forwarding you an infected file.

When receiving an e-mail with an attachment, if the e-mail was not expected or from someone you don't know delete it. If the e-mail is from someone you know, be cautious when opening the attachment.

Not running the latest updates

Many of the updates, especially those associated with Microsoft Windows and other operating systems and programs, are security updates. Running a program or operating system that is not up-to-date with the latest updates can be a big security risk and can be a way your computer becomes infected.

How to update a Microsoft Windows computer.
In addition to running operating system updates, the plugins associated with your browser can often contain security vulnerabilities. Make sure you have the latest versions of plugins. Click here to view installed plugins and their versions.

Pirating software, music, or movies

If you or someone on your computer is participating in underground places on the Internet where you're downloading copyrighted music, movies, software, etc. for free, often many of the files can contain viruses, spyware or malicious software.

No antivirus spyware scanner

If you're running a computer with Microsoft Windows it's highly recommended you have some form of antivirus and spyware protection on that computer to help clean it from any infections currently on the computer and to help prevent any future infections.

What are the current available antivirus programs?
My web browser has been hijacked.
Downloading infected software

Finally, downloading any other software from the Internet can also contain viruses and other malware. When downloading any software (programs, utilities, games, updates, demos, etc.), make sure you're downloading the software from a reliable source and while installing it you're reading all prompts about what the program is putting on your computer.

Should we kill the Trojan before I format the hard drive?

I finished reformatting the drive and now I am loading the drivers and programs etc.

What should I use for virus protection. I had been using AVG. Is this still a good option?

I prefer MicroSoft Security Essentials.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] All versions and all languages.

I prefer Internet Explorer but some say FireFox is a safer browser.

None that I know off. Of course, it all depends on which sites you visit which I why I advise using WOT to tell you sites are dangerous.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. WOT warns you before you interact with a risky website. It's easy and it's free.
