Hello,

This morning I was downloading ringtones on a website and all was well until one that I downloaded throw up 50 pop-ups and starting making Horse sounds really loudly.

I opened up task manager straight away and deleated a bunch of stuff I didn't recognise.

Strangly AVG disappeared from my computer at the same time.

Loads of 'XXXXX Program Didn't Install Correctly' promts came up and then instantly a warning that my computer was running low on memory. I checked it straight away and it was down to 875MB!! from the 62GB it was earlier today.

I have ran Malwarebytes which found loads of stuff and also ran AVG again from a fresh Install.

I am still however getting popups aswell as the Disk Space still only being back up to 3.7GB

Windows Security is also infected in someway as I am unable to switch it on:

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Declan

Hello decbohan22

Welcome to G2Go. :)
=====================
  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Under the Standard Registry box change it to All.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.
===========
Download This file. Note its name and save it to your root folder, such as C:\.

  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with this file.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
  • Double-click on the downloaded file to start the program. (If running Vista, right click on it and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Allow the driver to load if asked.
  • You may be prompted to scan immediately if it detects rootkit activity.
  • If you are prompted to scan your system click "Yes" to begin the scan.
  • If not prompted, click the "Rootkit/Malware" tab.
  • On the right-side, all items to be scanned should be checked by default except for "Show All". Leave that box unchecked.
  • Select all drives that are connected to your system to be scanned.
  • Click the Scan button to begin. (Please be patient as it can take some time to complete)
  • When the scan is finished, click Save to save the scan results to your Desktop.
  • Save the file as Results.log and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
  • Exit the program and re-enable all active protection when done.

Do you have the other log?

This appears to be the source of infection:
C:\users\declan\documents\downloads\programs\keygen.vidcrop.pro.1.0.0.11.exe
Keygens are used to make expensive free and they are illegal and most if not all of them come with a malware surprise.
Stay away from cracks\keygens of any kind or this will continue to happen.

See if you can get me the other log and we will continue from there.

Not sure what a keygen is but I did downloaded Vidcrop from a website earlier - so that's what it was. It was from a video on Youtube and in the description area on the right was that link. It didn't download so thought no more of it ..

The other file that you need is just below that one in the TXT file .. I cut & pasted both in the one document.

Thanks for your help. Really appreciate ie ..

Hi,

Okay .. took a while as the program kept crashing. Four times in all - so I just kept rebooting.

At the end it said:

"GMER HAS FOUND SYSTEM MOD CAUSED BY ROOTKIT ACTIVITY"

and also the following part was RED:

"Library C:\Program (*** hidden *** ) @ C:\Program [3268] 0x00400000"

If there is anything else you need just let me know.

Thanks again ..

Please read my previous post.
You have to create a text file called cfscript.
Then the contents would be the text inside of the code box in my above post.
