The Official Malware/Antivirus Thread - Need help or general advice? Read this first!

This thread provides information on malware removal, links to malware removal tools, and recommendations & links to anti-virus software. The intention of this thread is to provide quick and accurate support for malware-related issues and questions.

Many people here are willing to provide assistance if you're having computer problems, and this thread is not meant to discourage people from asking for help.... but, please read the information provided first, or else there's a good chance you'll be sent here, here, or here . We aren't Geek Squad, so while we won't grossly overcharge you for information and advice, we also aren't responsible for anything you do to your computer.

Also, feel free to make suggestions on the content of this post, and I'll try to keep it up to date.

Research


A lot of information can be found at this EliteKiller link, including...
  • Links to recommended malware scanning & removal tools, including the Rogue Removal Kit (which includes combofix), malwarebytes (aka MBAM), and Hitman Pro.
  • A link to HiJackThis, which creates a log of registry entries, running services, etc; that can be posted here for additional support.
  • Reviews, recommendations, and links to antivirus software, on-demand scanners, and online scanners.
  • Information on firewalls and unsecured networks, as well as malware/virus prevention.

Malware Removal

If you think your computer is infected, the EliteKiller link provides a thorough solution. Simply put...

Step 3 unzip the Kit, read the instruction file and run the tools in the order given.

Step 4 Thank me in about 3 hours for fixing your shit.

The Rogue Removal Kit is is a zipped file that includes malwarebytes, CCleaner (a registry cleaner that will also delete temporary files), Combofix, Hitman Pro, and HiJackThis (HiJackThis is optional, see below). The instructions guide you through running these tools in Safe Mode With Networking; then running malwarebytes and an online scanner in Normal Mode.

Some people don't recommend running Combofix unless you're fairly certain you need to use it, but I've never heard of people having major problems with it. Here's a list of symptoms to Vundo infections, which may help determine if you need to run Combofix. You can also look here to see instructions with screenshots on how to use Combofix.

Taken from the readme in the Rogue Removal Kit:

Quality Online Virus Scanners: (all scanners offer detection and removal)


F-Secure
NOD32
Bitdefender

Quality Free Anti-Virus Software:

Panda Cloud
Microsoft Security Essentials
Antivir
Avast!
AVG


My two cents on downloading anti-malware software...
  • Download it from another computer if possible, or from Safe Mode With Networking on the infected machine.
  • Verify you are downloading from a legit source and are not being redirected to a site where you'll end up downloading more malware. If you click on any links above, verify the link in the bottom left before clicking on it, then after clicking the link verify that's where you were taken in the address bar.
  • The elitekiller article mentions downloading the software to a USB drive. Do not download the software to a USB drive on the infected machine if you're not in Safe Mode, or else you risk infecting the USB drive and other computers you connect the drive to in the future.

Other Helpful Tips & Tools

Rkill will kill processes that may be preventing scanners from completely removing malware.

To get into Safe Mode With Networking, press F8 every couple of seconds while the computer is starting (before the Windows splash screen). If you see the Windows splash screen, you will need to try again. The safe thing to do is log into Windows, restart, and try pressing F8 several times before seeing the Windows splash screen. Alternatively, my advice that falls into the category of “what I'd do if it was my own computer, but wouldn't tell someone to do it if I worked in tech support” would be, if you didn't get into Safe Mode the first time and you're at the Windows splash screen, hold down the power button until the computer turns off. When you start the computer again, it should automatically ask you if you want to go into Safe Mode With Networking.

If you get a Blue Screen of Death after selecting Safe Mode With Networking, read the following posts on how to fix it:
http://blog.didierstevens.com/2006/06/22/save-safeboot/
http://blog.didierstevens.com/2006/0...ring-safeboot/
http://blog.didierstevens.com/2007/0...th-a-reg-file/


Still infected, or just want to make sure everything is okay?

HiJackThis is a tool that will create a log file that can be analyzed by geeks to see what is running on your computer. Install and run HiJackThis (preferably in Safe Mode With Networking), and select 'Do a system scan and save a log file'. You can then copy/paste the output to this thread, and with any luck, someone will stop by and let you know what you can delete. You can then checkmark the items in HiJackThis and click 'Fixed checked'.

If you don't get a quick response here or would rather do it yourself, you can also go to http://hijackthis.de/, which is an online analyzer for your HiJackThis log. Simply copy and paste the log into the text box and click the Analyze button. During my testing of the site, I found it wasn't perfect, especially when a proxy was setup (the visitor rating would be 'extremely nasty', but the site itself would say it was safe)... but, it's at least a good tool that can significantly shorten the time it takes to analyze the log, and it gives you an idea of which entries you can delete or at least Google/post here for further research.

You can also look at the responses to HiJackThis posts in this thread to get an idea of what is safe and what should be removed.


Windows Performance

A good starting point to knowing what processes and services are running on your computer is a HiJackThis log. There's also a lot of information that's only a Google search away.

To manage the process that start when Windows starts, use msconfig (Start button -> Run... -> msconfig -> Startup tab). This is a good resource on startup processes, and it includes a large database of startup processes with information on whether they're required to run Windows or if it's okay to uncheck them. You basically want processes that are in c:\Windows checked, and you can generally uncheck processes in c:\program files (but there are exceptions, like your antivirus), but do some research (Google, the provided links, this thread) if you're not sure. Adobe, Apple (including qttask, Boujour, AppleUpdater, etc), and any messenger program (unless you have it sign you in at startup) are always the first ones to get unchecked on my computer.

Services can be a little tougher to manage, because it's usually a much longer list, and it's not as simple as flipping them on or off. This is a great resource for managing Windows services (Start button -> Run... -> services.msc). Simply choose your version of Windows and then click on the Service Configuration link. It presents the default setup, a safe setup (what most people can use without any consequences), a tweaked setup for faster startup, and a bare bones setup for the super geek. There's also a Tweaks page for stuff like Adding/Removing programs and System Restore.

need some help...

Hey yall! My name is Shante and I am stoked to be here. I was at a friend's house after watching a game a couple weeks ago and we were looking at this forum for different fans and their thoughts. After reading for a while, I decided it was time for me to get my own laptop and hook up to the net so that I could be a part of it. I really was motivated by this forum and my love of movies to boot up; but I do have worries. i have heard stories from my friends about internet security violations and what not, and after picking their brains for some time, I am still kinda trying to figure out a solution I feel comfortable with.

I was wondering if there was anyone here, maybe, who could point me in the right direction...

I have been using Win XP, and it comes with a firewall, but I am worried it isn't strong enough.

I am thinking about getting Zonealarmís DataLock data encryption software. Basically I think that for laptops, it is a good way to make sure that if it gets stolen or I lose it (the reality is more like forget it) that nobody can access my data. It seems to run in the back ground so that you donít know it is actually running.

They say that it uses a pre-boot authentication in which users must provide the correct username and password before the operating system boot process will even begin. They also have a 24/7 password recovery service incase you forget your password.

A couple of questions:

1) Is this pre-boot authentication something that will help keep the data secure?
2) What kind of encryption is used?
3) How hard will DataLock make getting the data from my hard drive?

I just got over my MalWare problem with some help from a guy on bleeping computer. That guy talked me through every step and now everything is back to normal and better than ever with my computer. I would recommend you check it out. Cool people and don't mind helping others a bit it seems like. Saved me some $$ that's for sure. I was about to the point of throwing it out and buying a new tube.
My computer was so jacked it would take IE 3-4 minutes to load a page at the first. and FireFox kept crashing plus the stuff I had wouldn't even let me post my logs after checking with HIJack. There were many other problems it showed also.
Download the TDDS killer that they recommend run it then dl the Norman Malware Cleaner also and run it....took it 3-4 hrs but between both of them the cleaned up my stuff.
Anyway just check them out if you have time!

I've been trying to tell people here for years now.... Combofix is not a good general fix for computer issues, and never has been. Especially if you're not familiar with advanced troubleshooting and registry editing and the like. It has the ability to really screw up your system instead of fixing it. It's very limited in scope compared to other programs like Malwarebytes. It was designed to remove a limited handful of specific infections, and the creators themselves warn against using it for anything else. It doesn't have any type of update server to easily update the engine or definitions. And it haphazardly uses quite a few Windows processes, like Windows Recovery Console, in an unsupported manner. It routinely breaks the internet connection of machines it is "fixing", which requires a manual fix. It is even reported as a virus by some other security apps, due to it being a rootkit itself. There is even a type of malicious rootkit out there, that when it's detected by Combofix, it causes Combofix to automatically delete all the files on the drive. Seriously.

Combofix has it's purpose. But seeing it recommended by inexperienced people for all different types of infections just makes me cringe. This is a bad idea, unless a well trained tech who actually knows what he's doing instructs you to run it. There are much better and much safer utilities for the average user that will fix a helluva lot more than Combofix will.

I have been looking at this also. It seems that the pre-boot authentication is a good feature, because it will not allow someone to boot the laptop without the password. Basically, at that point they would pull the drive, and wipe it so they can at least use the laptop with a new install.

My understanding is that Datalock is 256k - which is the strongest.

Datalock runs in the background, and I have not found anyone saying that it is slow.

I just bought a new laptop. To connect with the wireless I need the network security key, which apparently we never wrote down. Is there somewhere on my old computer settings that I can find it?

There's freeware out there if you Google 'find wireless password', but I've never used any of them, so I don't know if it's reliable. If it's a Linksys router, you can go to 192.168.1.1 in your internet browser on your old computer or while wired with your new laptop to get into your router... the default user/password to get into the router is admin/admin, and you can find the key under Wireless -> Wireless Security.

What type of router do you have? If you set a password, you can always hit a tiny button on the back of the router to manually reset it, but that also erases any configuration you've made with the router. That may or may not be a problem. If you tell us the type of router, we can tell you the name and password needed to log in after you reset it.

Thanks for the responses. I think this is the router- It says Ubee on it and Time Warner set it up. I'm really dumb with this stuff.

Go into your browser, type in 192.168.1.1. Then a prompt should show up that asks for a username and password. The username is "user" and password is "user" by default for ubee routers. (if its not, try admin/admin).

That should get you into the router. Then you'll navigate to the wireless section, and reset it there.

That worked. It ended up as a different number for the router, and I had to plug the new computer into the router itself to do it, but it ended up working.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Well, i got a big problem...


Got something on the other comp, malwarebytes didn't pick it up, but symantec did. got one of the two it was messing with in quarantine, but it is giving me major RAM, memory, and hard drive not found errors.

Files are missing from my documents, i tried sticking in a usb card, but apparanantly it was instantly corrupted, so no dice adding anymore anti viruses.

keeps trying to get me to "defrag" using "Good Memory", whatever the hell that is... looks like a fake defrag/antivirus program.

Any ideas? i can't get into safe mode either... says windows vista, and i have XP

Didn't your XP come with a "restore" option? Just go in there and restore to a time before these events started occuring.
