Hi all, and thanks for the help.

Wound up downloading and running a Media TubeCodec.exe that has caused me trouble.

As soon as I ran it I knew it was trouble. I have a copy of NoAdware v.5.0 that I immediately ran after the download. It found and removed a lot of Zlob files. I also got a message from something saying that Zlob wanted to change my home page. I declined permission and haven't had a problem there.

But I still get the pop-ups telling me that my machine is infected and ransom can be paid - click here. I also get the yield sign in the task bar occasionally telling me the same.

I've followed directions in the read me first section. Here's what I've accomplished so far- after running NoAdware again.

1. Downloaded and ran the ATF Cleaner.
2. Created a new system restore point and purged the old ones.
3. Downloaded and ran Smitfraud.exe
4. Downloaded and ran AGV Anti_Spyware...twice. Checked that I wanted a log before running it, but no log was generated.
5. Tried to run a Panda Activescan but received the error page saying that resources or access are inadequate. E-mailed Panda with problem (resources are in fact adequate) but haven't received a reply.
6. Downloaded and ran a Hijack this log. Contents copied below.

Hi there and sorry for the delay :)

Lets go on a killin' spree and see what results

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = \blank.htm
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Tray Temperature] C:\DOCUME~1\Home\LOCALS~1\Temp\MiniBug.exe 1
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [FFlags] $
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [Sort] 
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [xkjtlduw] C:\WINDOWS\system32\dqrcvwrm.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [XVGX0upjbm] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\xolqrsbs\lixcbufm.exe
O4 - .DEFAULT User Startup: pskill.cmd (User 'Default user')

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Close HiJackThis.


Please go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following (if present):

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 5
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9
Java™ 6 Update 2
Java™ 6 Update 3
Java™ SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1


Please note any other programs that you dont recognize in that list in your next response

THEN

Please download the OTMoveIt2 by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it.
  • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    C:\DOCUME~1\Home\LOCALS~1\Temp\MiniBug.exe 
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dqrcvwrm.exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\xolqrsbs
    Purity
  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to be Moved" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.

  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt2
If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.

FINALLY FOR NOW

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
  • Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
  • Close any open browsers.
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
    • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

      -----------------------------------------------------------

    • Close any open browsers.
    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
    • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

  • Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
**Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

Logs required : OTMoveit and Combofix

Thanks so much for getting back to me Essexboy.

In another life I was an exterminator so killing sprees are like re-living the good ol' days! :)

OK, did all that you asked. There is still a Java ™ 6 Update 5 left that you didn't include in your hit list. Unless you say otherwise, I'll assume that's to be spared.

Here's the logs. OTMoveit first, combofix and then Hijack this.

What's next?

Oh, and do you have an opinion on software that fixes Windows Registry errors? Is it worth it for the average user and does one work better than the other?

Thanks again,
Clyde

There is still a Java ™ 6 Update 5 left that you didn't include in your hit list. Unless you say otherwise, I'll assume that's to be spared.

Yep he be the latest

Oh, and do you have an opinion on software that fixes Windows Registry errors? Is it worth it for the average user and does one work better than the other?

Remind me to discuss this when I have finished cleaning you up :)

One question did you install the nielson on line monitor ?

If not and I can see no evidence of installation

  • Please double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it.
  • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    C:\Program Files\NetRatingsNetmeter
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\\NetMeter
    Purity
  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to be Moved" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.

  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt2
If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.

THEN

To clear the waifs and strays

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or 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 Quick 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)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&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 immediatly.

Logs this time : MBAM and a new Hijackthis - plus how is your computer now ?

Hey Essexboy,

And now for the rest of the story. First, the first cleanings you had me do the first go through may have done the trick with the trojandownloader. I haven't had any more popups telling me that ransom can be paid here since running Combofix. :)

So yes, it's running much better thanks to your skilled ministrations.

...and I can' tell for sure yet, but it may be running faster overall. At least less balky. It was driving me nuts always writing to the hard drive every time I would switch between windows or programs. Making work go sloooowwwwllllyyyy.

The logs, first Malwarebytes then HJT follow.

And about that earlier question,

Oh, and do you have an opinion on software that fixes Windows Registry errors? Is it worth it for the average user and does one work better than the other?

OK that looks happy to me :) Soooo..............................

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :)

Double click OTMoveit once again and you should see a CleanUp! button, press that button, you may get prompted by your firewall that OTMoveit wants to contact the internet, allow this, a cleanup.txt will be downloaded, a message dialog will ask you if you want to proceed with the cleanup process, click Yes. This will delete all the tools you have downloaded plus itself

Now to get you off to a good start we will re-set your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your your restore point but this is my method:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
2. On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
3. Click NEXT
4. Enter a name e.g. Clean
5. Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
2. In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
3. Click OK
4. The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
5. Select the More Options Tab.
6. At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
7. Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done



Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free program: It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?


Keep safe :)

Ok registry cleaners - there are different schools of thought on this. One says never use them and the other says do :) So I believe it is a matter of personnel preference. For myself I play with a lot of different programmes so I end up with a lot of remnants on my system.

I use two different registry cleaners. One on a monthly basis (Tuneup utilities) and the other on a quarterly (Regvac). But I know what is good and bad. Tuneup is not to bad for a novice and enables compaction of the registry - does it make loading any faster -No. Does it stabilise the system - somewhat.

Regvac does a very deep scan and can remove up to 300 registry entries - generally orphans that are doing no harm, but I am a tidy freak :)

Both programmes have a full 30 day trial and create backups

Regvac
Tuneup Utilities

Have a look at the links as they have descriptions of the programmes and if you need further advice or clarification then just ask :)

Hi Essexboy,

Performed those last actions and everything seems to be working fine now. :)

Thanks again for your help as well as the consul. I'll follow your advice. You've certainly been spot on with the bad stuff. I trust that will hold true for the good stuff as well. :)

Thanks again!!!
