Solved go.google virus problem

Post by karaob on 6th February 2009, 7:22 pm

I've had a problem connecting to links through google. It always links me to something starting with go.google instead. Whatever virus this is also infected Malwarebytes and wouldn't allow me to open it or go to the website or anything. Here is my hijackthis scan:

I did what you said on the hijackthis, then clicked on the link you shared for malwarebytes. I couldn't connect to the webpage at all, it just said "Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage".

Rootkit is blocking us, lets remove it.

1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop
Link: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

  • Click on Avenger.zip to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop
2. Copy all the text contained in the code box below to your Clipboard by highlighting it and pressing (Ctrl+CCrying


Files to delete:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mst122.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\swrrio.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\hqsitn.dll

Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.


3. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

  • Under "Input script here:", paste in the script from the quote box above.
  • Leave the ticked box "Scan for rootkit" ticked.
  • Then tick "Disable any rootkits found"
  • Now click on the Execute to begin execution of the script.
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    The Avenger will automatically do the following:

  • It will Restart your computer.
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avengerís actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.
4. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.

The first time I tried this everything went well until the restart - then my computer stalled at the "Windows is shutting down" screen for a VERY long time. I eventually had to do a hard reboot (or whatever it is called), where I held down the button on the front of the tower until it turned off. On restart there was no log file, so I followed the instructions again and this time the reboot worked. However, I'm noting that the logfile looks like they tried to delete those files but they were already missing from the first attempt. Here is my log file:

Meh, don't care about them files, they are harmless and will fall to almost any tool used.
The avenger has done what is needed, give MBAM website a test now, see if it works.

OK! I sucessfully downloaded, installed, and ran malwarebytes! The problem seems to be gone, although (and I'm not sure if this is part of the original problem) I still get some folders opening on start-up and I'm not sure why. It's "Common" and "System32". If this is normal, or easily fixed, I would appreciate any ideas. Also, are there some steps I should take so this won't happen again?

Oh, and of course, THANK YOU!!! You are my hero today!

I've seen that happen once before on another malware removal forum, and I saved the fix that was used, so we can try it here.
Lets make sure the malware is gone though.


  • Please download DDS by sUBs to your Desktop (Important!!) from one of these locations:
    [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.]
  • Double click DDS.scr to run
  • When complete, DDS.txt will open.
  • Save the report to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste DDS.txt back here, I don't need to see attach.txt.

I did what you asked, but the program stopped responding right after the move and I was unable to copy anything, I had to end the unresponsive program...

Okay.
Two things for you to do, then I think we can say were done here.

In my first post on your thread, I asked what AV you were using and you didn't answer, surfing without an AV is important, otherwise you'll be back here before ya know it.

Second, run and post a new DDS log so I can see them files are gone.

Oh, sorry!! I totally forgot you asked that before. I used to have McAfee before all of this started, but in my (stupid) quest to fix this problem I thought that it was making things worse. I will be re-installing as soon as possible, unless you have a better recommendation. Here is my log file:

Hello.

I posted a HJT fix here which should fix the system32 opening on startup problem, did you do that before you did the OTMoveIt?
If not, please do so now.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Install ONLY ONE!! of these two AV's below.

1) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
-Free anti-virus software for Windows.
-Detects and removes more than 50,000 viruses. Free support.
2) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
-Anti-virus program for Windows.
-The home edition is freeware for noncommercial user.

Please open OTMoveIt again, press the green CleanUp! button.
When asked to reboot, select yes.
I don't need to see any log it gives you, and after reboot, the system32 problem should be gone assuming you followed the HJT fix in the link in this post.

I did do the HJT fix, plus installed the Avira AV program. Then I did the OTMoveit clean up, rebooted, and there was still the System32 and Common folders open at start up. Not sure what this means...

Could be that HJT isn't fixing the items properly.

  • Now open a new notepad file.
  • Input this into the notepad file:

    regedit /e peek1.txt "HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
    type peek1.txt >> look.txt
    del peek1.txt
    start notepad look.txt

  • Save this as look.bat, save it to your desktop.
  • Double click look.bat to run it.
  • Copy and paste the report back here.

Solved Re: go.google virus problem

I think it was because how the value was formatted, maybe HJT didn't like it and couldn't fix it correctly.

  • Now open a new notepad file.
  • Input this into the notepad file:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "CTEMON.EXE"=-
  • Save this as fix.reg, save it to your desktop.
  • Double click fix.reg to run it.
  • Select yes to the registry merge prompt.

Well, we made some progress atleast.

Found one solution here.
Delete this folder in bold if it exists:
C:\Program Files\Common

[note]
DO NOT delete Program Files\common files

I see you have Adobe Reader version 7 installed on this machine, this is old and has holes malware can use to abuse to re-infect you, so we need to close these holes.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.

  • Adobe Reader 7
Then download and install version 9 from here:

We need to make a new restore point.

To turn off System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
4. Click Yes when you receive the prompt to the turn off System Restore.

Now we need to make a new restore point.
To turn on System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (To turn on System Restore), and then click OK.

Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer in order to prevent future malware infections. Please take these recommendations seriously; these few simple steps can stave off the vast majority of spyware problems. As happy as we are to help you, for your sake we would rather not have repeat customers. Goofy

1) Please navigate to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and download all the "critical updates" for Windows. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer.

Please either enable Automatic Updates under Start -> Control Panel -> Automatic Updates , or get into the habit of checking for Windows updates regularly. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

2) In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free programs:

A tutorial on using Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer 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.]
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer 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.]
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date and to run them regularly, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.

3) Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I also recommand the following add-ons for Firefox, they will help keep you safe from malicious scripts or activeX exploits.

4) Also make sure to run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep it up-to-date.

To help you keep your software updated, please considering using this free software program that will check for program updates.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

5) Finally, consider maintaining a firewall. Some good free firewalls are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], or

Hopefully this should take care of your problems! Good luck. Big Grin
