Greetings G-2-G!

Day 3 of a very aggressive infection; I have followed the 'Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide', step-by-step, with the following obstacles:
- System Restore simply does not work - when I attempted to launch the S/R from my own OS, it comes back with the message: "Incomplete - no changes made since Restore Point - Pick another Restore Point" - regardless how far I go back. When I try to Run the downloaded version I get the message: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click on OK to terminate the application"
- Malewarebytes: updater unsuccessful - "Error Code 732(0, 0).
Quick Scan launches and, after 6 seconds, simply disappears. quits, etc., with no error message. Also, re-named .exe file, but to no avail.
RootRepeal - downloading file simply freezes at the 82% mark - still frozen.
- OTL - launched Quick Scan, after 2 - 3 minutes it also simply disappeared - no message, no pop-ups, no explanation.

- Before appealing for your assistance, I tried to launch my own Anti-virus Apps (AVG, Avira, & some other freeware I found on CNET) - none would launch properly. Mostly, they reported connectivity problems when attempting to acquire updates, etc.
- Spybot would not download at all.
- my own, purchased version of 'Super Anti-Spyware' began scanning and, as soon as infected files began appearing in list, my desktop simply shutdown & re-booted - I tried this five times with the same result. I noted 8 'trojan & other type files found' just before it shutdown - and this after only approx. 325 files were scanned!!
- my default browser is Firefox, but now I'm getting IE pop-ups launching by themselves.
- I seem to be able to access my e-mail & navigate the Web normally otherwise, but any attempt to run an a/v, Spy/W remover or Registry Scan causes freezing, inaction, or shutdown.

Your assistance & advice will be most appreciated and will hopefully preserve my sanity. Thank you in advance.O.T.E.

Hello! :) Welcome to GeekstoGo! I'm piano9playa5 and will be assisting you with your malware problems. If you have any questions, ask away! Just a few tips to make things go smoothly:
  • Please be patient. There may be delays in between my posts, as I must check everything with a moderator before posting.
  • Don't run tools you see being used in another topic. Running tools unsupervised can be dangerous.
  • Copy\Paste logs in your replies, rather than attaching them, unless I instruct you to do otherwise. This makes things easier for me, and the moderator looking over this topic.

I'll post back some instructions shortly.

Hello. :) I think I know where the problem lies. I need a run with a specialized tool to confirm. :)

Win32kDiag
Download Win32kDiag from any of the following locations and save it to your Desktop.

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

  • Double-click on Win32kDiag to start the program.
  • When finished (message will show), press any key to close it.
  • Open the Win32kDiag.txt now on your Desktop and copy\paste the contents back here.

Good Morning - thanks for the reply.
Further to my initial report, when I power up my PC my 'Downloads' folder opens up [in my 'C' drive (OS Drive)], and I get the following message: "the instruction at '0x7c902128' referenced memory at '0xa48c6c9c'. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program".

I ran the Win32kDiag and the following text was generated:

Hello. :)



Step One
  • Please go to Start > Run
  • Copy\Paste the following into the dialogue:

    "%userprofile%\desktop\win32kdiag.exe" -f -r
  • Click Ok
  • Once done, there should be a file, Win32kDiag.txt on your Desktop.
  • Open it, and post the contents here.




Step Two
  • 1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop.
  • Right click on the Avenger.zip folder and select "Extract All..."
  • Follow the prompts and extract the avenger folder to your desktop
2. Copy all the text contained in the code box below to your Clipboard by highlighting it and pressing (Ctrl+C):

Files to move:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\logevent.dll | C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.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, open the avenger folder and start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon.
  • Right click on the window under Input script here:, and select Paste.
  • You can also click on this window and press (Ctrl+V) to paste the contents of the clipboard.
  • Click on Execute
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.
4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:
  • It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Delete", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
  • 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 Avenger’s 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.
5. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.




Step Three
You must use Internet Explorer to download this!

Please download Combofix from any of the links below. You must rename it before saving.
Please rename it to Wozman before saving it to your desktop.

Download Link #1
Download Link #2


==================================

  • Temporarily disable Anti-Virus\Anti-Malware real-time protection.
  • Double click on Wozman and follow the prompts.
  • Be patient. It could take a while to load\run.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt so we can continue cleaning the system.




Logs&Info
Remember to post back the following logs:
  • Win32kDiag.txt
  • C:\avenger.txt
  • C:\ComboFix.txt

STEP 2: - Avenger won't execute. I've pasted the code you provided but I get the following message: "Error: Invalid Script. A valid script must begin with a command directive.". I'll stop here before going to Step 3. My apologies - I should probably know about 'command prompt', but I'm still near the bottom of the learning curve.

I think I know the problem. :) You need to copy ALL of the contents of the codebox.. Including Files to Move:
Once you've pasted it into Avenger, it should like this:

Posted Image




Making sure you've copied all of the codebox, please do Step Two and then proceed to Step Three.

That was the Avenger text; however as I was waiting for the Combofix text, I got the following 'pop-up': "ALERT: It is NOT SAFE to continue. The contents of the Combofix package has been compromised. Please download a copy from http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix. Note: you may be infected with a file-patching virus 'Virut'"
I have tried downloading this from both links, both re-naming the.exe file, as well as leaving it as - all with the same pop-up warning.

Hello. That warning from CF doesn't look good. I will need to confirm:

  • Make sure to use Internet Explorer for this
  • Please go to VirSCAN.org FREE on-line scan service
  • Click Browse, navigate to the following file, and click Open.

    • c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe
  • Click on the Upload button
  • If a pop-up appears saying the file has been scanned already, please select the ReScan button.
  • Once the Scan is completed, click on the "Copy to Clipboard" button. This will copy the link of the report into the Clipboard.
  • Paste the contents of the Clipboard in your next reply.
  • Please repeat the above steps for each of the following files:
    • C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe
    • C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe

That's it - I think I got all three done, but it took awhile.
Thank you again for your (ongoing) patience.

I'm afraid I have some bad news.

You have been infected with a polymorphic file infecter named Virut. This infection will spread to every executable file in your computer, and unfortunately the only cure for it is to Reformat and Reinstall.

Right now, the best thing you can do is to backup, preferably to CD, all your important data, documents, pictures, movies, and songs.

DO NOT backup any applications or installers and DO NOT backup any files with the following extensions:
  • .exe
  • .scr
  • .htm
  • .html
  • .xml
  • .zip
  • .rar
For more information on Virut, and why you need to reformat, have a read of miekiemoes blog here.

To find out how to carry out an XP Reformat and Reinstall, please see this page. If you are using Vista, then check this page instead.

Once you have reformatted and reinstalled Windows, have a look at this page for some useful tips on staying clean, along with links to some freeware to help.

To find out more information about how you may have got infected in the first place, you can read this article.

I am sorry I cannot give any better news. If you need any help with the reformat\reinstall, I'm here.

piano9playa5 - I thank you for your extensive assistance. I think I know what I have to do. And then, when I find the culprit behind these viruses, I also know what I have to do. And then, when I get paroled, I'll re-format & re-install (lol - just kidding, although I can think of some original corrective measures for those responsible). Oh well, thanks again. Kudos to you and your colleagues, this is a great site which I will be telling the 'world' about.

Best Regards,

Wozman :)
