    Default Nasty infestation. No Anti Virus will run. (Inactive)

    Hello!

    I usually can take care of these myself, but this one is wicked. It lets me run any anti-virus software for a few moments then shuts them down and changes the permissions, whereby I cannot access them thereafter. I can't run HiJackThis, or anything else. Same scenario in Safe Mode. Running Win XP.

    I was able to run GMER for awhile, and it detected something, but ultimately failed when checking the Windows directory. Attached is what it was able to gather before it failed. Please help..desperate here.

    Thanks!

    Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only,
    the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

    If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the HJT forum and wait for help.


    Hello and welcome to the forums

    My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

    Please observe these rules while we work:
    1. Please Read All Instructions Carefully
    2. If you don't understand something, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
    3. Please do not run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you
    4. Failure to reply within 5 days will result in the topic being closed.
    5. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
      (Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)

    If you can do those few things, everything should go smoothly

    Some of the logs I request will be quite large, You may need to split them over a couple of replies.

    Please Note, 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

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



    Download and Run ComboFix


    Download Combofix from the link below. Save it to your desktop.

    > Link Removed <

    (I have renamed the file)


    STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.


    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

    Click the Windows 'Start' button > Select 'Run' - then copy/paste the following bolded text into the run box & click OK.

    "%userprofile%\desktop\CleanMe.exe" /killall

    When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply.

    Thank you very much for the assistance.

    I did as you asked. ComboFix runs, I can see the status bar for it, and it appears to complete, but then everything just stops. No log is produced. It really seems just the other programs I have tried to run, where this infestation just shuts them down.

    No other viral software was running.

    I do see an mdm.exe running that looks suspicious. I stop it in task mgr though then run this program and it still is killed. Just to let you know, these programs are being stopped by this infection while in Safe Mode as well. It appears to be well attached to the system. Last night while observing this, I noticed the explorer.exe grab some cpu usage every time an anti-virus program was shut down.

    I tried renaming HiJackThis too, and no help.
    Don't know if this helps, but thought I'd send it out there.

    Ok, we need some info before we can kill this nasty.

    Use Windows explorer to open this folder
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data

    You may need to unhide files and folders ( see below )

    Look for a folder that has all numbers in its name eg 12365489
    If you find one, DRAG the entire folder to your desktop
    Reboot the machine and then try Combofix again



    Show All Files And Folders
    Now you need to show all files and folders
    • Click Start.
    • Open My Computer.
    • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    • Select the View Tab.
    • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
    • Uncheck Hide file extensions for known file types
    • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    • Click Yes to confirm.
    • Click OK.

    Thank you for the follow-up.

    I found two folders with all numbers in that diretory and did as you said, moving both to desktop, restarted, and then ran the CleanMe.exe again. Like before, it ran, appeared to complete, hour glasses and the whole nine, and then it just stopped - producing no log.

    Katana...

    Just an added notice, I looked at the properties of the folders that you mentioned herein and they were added on the same date that I had and attempted to remove some a.exe, b.exe, and msa.exe issues. I removed those apps and associated registry keys, as I could find them.

    I'm starting to believe they are somehow associated now. I also recently had a bout with Windows Antivirus Pro that I believed Windows Defender had resolved.

    Thanks again!

    Yes, they are probably all related.

    Please try the following

    Click start > run then copy/paste the following into the run window

    cacls C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /G emh:F

    Press enter.

    A cmd window should come up asking you if you are sure, type 'y' then hit enter.

    After that, delete your copy of combofix, re-download a new one and try to run it again.

    Hello again.

    When I enter

    cacls C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /G emh:F

    into the Run box and hit Enter, the Command prompt comes up but is closed almost immediately to where I only see it briefly and can't even see what it says on the prompt.
