Infected by Win32:Trojan-gen and Win32:Trojano-3238 Viruses

Q: Infected by Win32:Trojan-gen and Win32:Trojano-3238 Viruses

Hi,
My computer is infected by the Win32:Trojan-gen and Win32:Trojano-3238 viruses.
There were detected by theAvast! antivirus and this one cannot do nothing: not delete the infected files, nor repair them or "move them to the chest".
Does anyone know how to repair this infection?

Preferred Solution: Infected by Win32:Trojan-gen and Win32:Trojano-3238 Viruses

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Infected by Win32:Trojan-gen and Win32:Trojano-3238 Viruses

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Hello,My computer became infected last night, and It's pretty bad. I became infected with Infected: Trojan:Win32/Alureon.BT, Win32:Jifas-CY, and the others listed (maybe more). Long story short, I'd just watched Harry Potter on dvd, and logged onto the computer to see who he married in the end. I ended up at a Harry Potter encyclipdiea website, and looked it up. Avast went nuts after a few minutes, and showed 4 different virus alerts, and Windows Defender showed 1 as well after I shut down.The virus listed by Defender was Trojan:Win32/Alureon.BT. Avast listed Win32:Jifas-CY, I didn't get the others in time.The last 2 I listed in the title, a "security center alert" claimed it detected these programs trying to acess the internet. It listed one more, but I didn't get it's name in time.I know Alureon is a downloader and backdoor for other viruses, and it basically shuts down security systems, which it's trying to do since windows now thinks I have no anti-virus installed.All of these trojans are listed as "server" and "high risk." I'm not sure a root kit didn't try to make it's way in too.EDIT: I wanted to add a few things in. First, I have XP SP3 set up with multiple accouts, one admin "owner" account and then 1 limited access "user" account. The Viruses came in while the user account was logged on (I am not dumb enough to connect to the internet with an admin account). It seems the Viruses we... Read more

A:Infected: Trojan:Win32/Alureon.BT, Win32:Jifas-CY, Backdoor.Win32.Kbot.al, Net-Worm.Win32.Mytob.t

Hello again.I booted into Safe Mode and ran an Avast scan (which took forever) and it was a waste of time. The stupid thing found nothing wrong, and said the system was clean (which is the opposite it says when you log into the limited user account). The computer (and specially that account at least) is definitely infected. Could the viruses be hiding themselves when in safe mode?Should I scan from a Pre-install environment like BartPE? Or from the Regular "Owner" Admin account? I waited 2 days for the stupid program to scan 700gb (painfully slow for a qaud core, though to be excepted in safe mode), and it was useless.Other than running windows defender (which I'm doing now), and maybe trying MBAM, I'm not sure what to do. I'm not expect enough to dive into programs like OTViewIT and Combofix, so I'll need help here. Please, ANY HELP is appreciated. I would rather NOT wipe the drive and reinstall the whole system, but I need to get this figured out.Does no one have any ideas???

My Avast antivirus recently started detecting a whole host of viruses. I ran a thorough scan of all files and deleted every infected file until the scanner turned up a hit in the operating memory. It then suggested I run a boot sector scan - I did so. Upon rebooting Avast started detecting more viruses. This time I rebooted into Safe Mode and ran the scanner there, deleting everything I found. Apparently one of the files I deleted was important, because after that my computer Blue-Screened during boot-up and I had to do a system restore to a save point from a few days ago (before the virus was contracted). Since then the virus has continued to crop up, and I haven't the foggiest notion of how to get rid of it.

The title is a list of the virus descriptions that my Avast scanner gave me. I ran all the programs the walkthrough on this site instructed me to, but the RootRepeal program crashed and generated an error message and crash report, both attached (error message in .png image format - I took a screenshot of it).

Thanks for your help!

I scanned with Avast and it gave me a warning that a file called WIN386.SWP was infected with win32:Trojano-1218.

Now I have an older computer which has multiple drives in it. The infected file was found in E:\Windows (the Windows folder was left from the previous owner). I also found a file with the same name on C:, but got no trojan warning when I scanned it. I've tried moving it to the chest, but got an error. Is it safe to delete the file from my E: drive? Here's my HijackThis report, though I'm not sure if it's of any use.

I also have MalwareBytes (free) installed and have been running it regularly, and I use the ESET Online Scanner as well.

That's when the command prompt appears with netsh.exe typed in it, then it disappears and i just get a blue screen and windows fails to load. When I boot the system in safe mode a highlighted message appears and "ask which OS system I want to load", not sure why it does that since I only have one operating system. While in Safe mode I get a "look for porn" installation wizard. I try to fix everything I can while in safe mode including manually deleting infected files. Once I have everything I think is fixed I run bazooka, trojan remover and spybot, everything seems to be fixed until I reboot the system.

Hello,Please help if you can .I ran free Avast! version 5.0.677 on my Windows XP desktop computer (Pentium 4, 1.5 Ghz CPU, 1 gb ram), and came up with the following virus warnings. Unfortunately the Avast! software internal tools to remove it are grayed out and not functioning. I tried a couple of things to remove viruses from help online and then realized I was in way over my head. I found this forum and am now requesting help.Avast! says I am affected with:JS:Downloader-AT, Win32:Nimda, Win32:Small-GWM, Win32:VB-EIJ, Win32:WinSpy-CK, JS:ScriptSH-inf, and Win32:VirutAttached a screen shot of Avast! with viruses and partial path to them.

It attacked IE first. I used Ad-Aware and CCleaner. It seemed to go away. Then it came back and attacked Firefox. I used Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in conjunction with Ccleaner and it wouldn't go away. After every use, there would still be another DLL file to find and destroy, even if Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware said it was successful. Often the files that returned were different DLLs then before.I have no Window's Explorer due to this infection. Managed to run tasks anyway and found you guys on google when I entered in a DLL file name that I had originally found while scanning. I can't recall the name of the offending DLL...

Hello Bleeping!
A few days ago I removed Norton AV and installed MSSE. MSSE detected Trojan Dropper: Win32/Sirefef.B and Rogue:Win32/FakeRean. For the past two full system scans MSSE has detected and removed the dropper, and the last scan (last night) detected the Fake Rean. The MSSE removals don't appear to be effective against the dropper. Another peculiar thing, when I installed MSSE a few days ago, it told me my firewall was not up, but when I go into MS Security Center it says that the firewall is "ON". Not sure if perhaps the Norton AV removal maybe wasn't complete and that I am getting "false positives", or if something is really there. My logs are as follows:

Hello, I was told to post here by the moderator. Here's the scoop: I was infected with a virus and didn't have any protection on my PC. I went out and bought Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. My original problem was that the virus was not allowing me to surf the internet with out popups and redirects. After running the Kaspersky software it cleaned up a bunch of issues but has gotten to a point were it cannot clean the last two issues. It recognizes them and marks them for deletion but asks me to reboot in order to delete. After I reboot it just finds the viruses again and I repeat the process endlessly.

I went through some troubleshooting steps with a Kaspersky rep and she decided that she had exhausted all options and asked me to format the computer. That is not an option and I don't believe that there is no hope of cleaning the virus. I am in need of someone with a little more expertise and vigilance.

The two issues are described below as listed by the Kaspersky software:
1. Trojan-Cliker.win32.delf.cbe - Object: C:\windows\system32\gznvqkei.dll
2. Rootkit.win32.Podnuha.a - Object: System Memory

When I try to manually delete the gznvqkei.dll file I get an "Access Denied" error.

The Kaspersky rep did have me run the combofix software but it did not solve the issue. She had me run a custom script from within the AV software that was designed to delete the troubled files to no avail. She also had me create a boot disk but when using the boot d... Read more

Hello dmacc01.If you still have the same issues, you may consider the following. But first, be absolutely aware that having the system without an antivirus program is an extremely dangerous thing.Let's have you create a restore point (at this time). 1. Right click the My Computer icon on the Desktop and click on Properties.2. Click on the System Restore tab.3. If there is a check mark next to "Turn off System Restore on all drives", then click on the line to clear it.4. If C is your system drive (as it is in most cases) and you see other drives monitored in the list (like D, E, etc) click on the other drives, press Settings button, and get the other drives turned off.5. we only want to monitor the drive with Windows o.s.If you are unable to activate System Restore or if the service is disabled, then.....from the Start button > RUN option .... type in services.msclook for System Restore serviceIf it is listed as off or inactive, press on the link at top left to Start it.Next, See and do as outlined here http://bertk.mvps.org/html/createrp.htmlAfter that, also do this:1. Go >> Here << and download ERUNT (ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)2. Install ERUNT by following the prompts (use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)3.

Probably you best chance is to submit a HJT logPlease read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

Hello!I have trouble with my computer. I found this forum online and now I hope that you can help me. I suspected that I had a virus so I installed a anti-virus program. It found files with the names virus.win32.sality.k and trojan-proxy.win32.agent.II on my computer. After desinfecting those files I always got an error message when I turned the computer on. It kept telling me: file vmmdiag32.exe cannot be found. Then I found this forum and saw that other people had the same problem and that this is still a consequence of the virus. I don?t know how to get rid of it.Then I found your preparation guide for use before posting a hijackthis log, and checked my computer with the programs you adviced. Now that errormessage has disappeared, but I have the impression that my computer doesn?t work properly anymore. It?s getting slower and the anti-virus programm always finds new infected files. Sometimes when I turn the computer on it gets stuck while it is booting up and I have to press F1 to continue.Now there?s a problem with the audio too - I don?t know if it is also a result of the virus. It tells me: bad directsound driver. please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. error code: 88780078. and the only sound the computer makes is a terrible peep sound.I have never had a virus before (I didn?t have internet on my computer), so I?m a little bit helpless and I would really appreciate it if you could help me.I also did the Hijackthis. here is the res...

Hi,It seems that I have trojan activity on my home pc.I am running Vista and when I log in to my user profile I get a blue desktop with a box saying 'Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer'I have tried a few malware removal programs, Malwarebytes, CCleaner, Adaware and ran virus scans in an attemp to try and remove it myself without bothering you guys but I just can't shift it, so I'm hoping you may have the time to help?What I have noticed is that I only get these warnings when I am logged into my user profile, not as administrator or as another user on the pc. I also get no warnings when running in safe mode.I run Avast and that brings up a warning soon after the blue desktop comes up that points to infection with C:\Users\Guy\AppsData\Local\Temp\tt991.tmp.vbs. The numbers/letters after the tt (in this case 991) change each time I log in. It also states Malware Name: VBS:Malware-gen, Malware Type: Virus/Worm, VBS verison 080805-0,08/05/08 which I try and delete from the warning box.I then am greeted with a windows script host message box that will say the above file (tt991.tmp.vbs) failed (Access Denied).I also regularly get Windows security alert message boxes come up on the screen saying that Windows Firewall has detected activity of harmfull software with mention of one of many trojans.

The last two days my computer has frozen up while trying to surf around online. This seemed weird so I ran a full system scan with symantec endpoint both days. Both times the logs came back with no risks detected. Today I started getting internet explorer pops directing me to sites. I knew at this point I had an infection that endpoint was not picking up. I disabled my network card and used another computer to download some of the suggest programs I've seen on this site. I has hoping to at least get the problem quarantined so that I would feel safe enough to enable the network card again. After running the utilities, I am not freezing when surfing web pages and have resumed using the computer. I would like help making sure that my computer is clean since endpoint obviously isn't catching this problem.

I continued to investigate on my own. Combofix quaratined some files, but did not delete them. A scheduled full system scan with endpoint finally picked up some infections with the newest updates loaded. Symantec scan labels the infections as Trojan.Vundo and Trojan.Metajuan. Metajuan was removed automatically, but Vundo proved to be a little more pesky. Symantec offers a removal tool for Vundo on there website. I opted to try out Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (mbam). It was able to located the files that were in quaratine and some infected files that were in system restore. I disable system restore to avoid any problems and mbam was able to delete all the files. After a system restart, I scanned with Symantec Vundo tool and found no further signs of infection. Mbam did a good job Re-enabled system restore and recreated a fresh restore point. I'm hoping that this will be in the end of this problem, but would still be interested in someone combing through some of my logs to see if anything was missed. I'm still a little miffed that endpoint had not picked these infections up when they are not exactly new threats and I had the most current definitions when I ran my previous scans.

I use ESET NOD32. At startup it detects the win32/Kryptik in a start-up scan and later mentions the Win32 rootkit running in memory. The scan log shows that it has detected this on each startup but it cannot delete because files are locked from removal. I have not been able to tell what file NOD is trying to find. Below is last log file post: This same message is repeated in numerous 10+ restarts in the past 24 hours.

5/19/2009 8:25:46 PM Startup scanner operating memory Operating memory Win32/Rootkit.Agent.ODG trojan unable to clean

I have run ESET in safe mode. It didnot do anything to eliminate the problem. Windows Defender has apparently not done anything either. Finally, I tried windows malicious software removal, but apparently it could not do anything either.

Main problem I notice is delays in internet usage. Happens both in firefox and ie. I changed DNS settings from automatically detect to a fixed DNS setting from earthlink.net. Still same slow down in internet usage.

Appreciate any help you can give. I have tried to find bad file, but to no avail.

It now looks like I may have been able to repair my problem. I used a somewhat, haphazard, unguided approach to removal. The final solution came from AVG Rootkit removal ( http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Rootkit-...4-10662685.html ). Here is a list of all the steps I attempted. I was worried at times I could have hurt my system, but then I would have had to reinstall the OS. But, on the other hand, some internet posts I read were saying that was the only way to repair the situation. So, desperation took hold. I found my reinstall disks, just in case I needed them and proceeded. ATF Cleaner -- Who needs temp files anyway, especially if they might have trojans, I eliminated temp files this program would find.CC Cleaner - used this to clean out internet cache and history.Recycler folders - I had multiple recycler folders, one that had a rundll in it. I assumed you only have one recycle bin so you only need one of these folders. I had to reset the folder view options in exlorer to see all files and folders (hidden, system, etc.) I deleted the extra recycler folders I could find.System Restore - I turned off system restore. This would erase all the previous positions I had saved. This meant I could never go back to a prior position where my computer was running good, but I didn't know how to find out if I had virus/trojan in one of these saved files I then immediately turned back on the system restore after the old restore files were deleted.b]Windows defender[...

I am missing the running processes part, so make sure you are running HijackThis from a permanent folder and not from a temp folder.It's better to print out the next instructions or save them in notepad, because you also have to work in safe mode without networking support, so this page wouldn't be available then.It is also important you don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order!!* Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.Don't use it yet.* Reboot into Safe Mode`: ( without networking support !)?To get into the Safe mode as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key". Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running.

My computer is infected with Win32.Trojan.Tdss and Win32.TrojanDownloader.Agent. I've been trying to remove them with Ad-Aware but they re-install themselves. I've downloaded numorous other malware removers but the malware seems to disrupt / won't allow them to install or work. This includes the root repeal program mentioned in the preparation guide. When I attempt to run root repeal I get the following error:

04:03:06: FOPS - DeviceIoControl Error! Error Code = 0xc0000024 Extended Info (0x000000d8)
04:03:06: DeviceIoControl Error! Error Code = 0x1e7
04:03:06: FOPS - DeviceIoControl Error! Error Code = 0xc0000024 Extended Info (0x000000d8)

The most annoying thing that is happening is when I go to google something, it will redirect me to somewhere else or will throw random pop-ups at me every now and then. Also, I tried to reformat / re-install a fresh copy of Windows Vista but it seems this piece of malware makes it impossible to boot from disk.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Attached below is my dds.txt log:

m ades, windows xp sp3
to whomever can help- i tried to remove some viruses
using info from bleeping, but am not having any luck.

i downloaded a file that i thought could help me on another
matter, but it had a virus that zone alarm's active scan did not
catch.

it was a rootkit virus. i tried tdsskiller several times as well as
malwarebytes, and thought i finally got rid of it. then another
virus popped up despite my not having connected to the internet.

another was this patch virus that kept redirecting my opera
browser. malwarebytes did not see this, but zone alarm did.
i tried to get rid of it and used tdsskiller, and thought i did.
i had to keep switching between safe mode and
normal mode to do it. i had no problems for two weeks, then
both seemed to pop up again. my guess is that i never
actually got rid of them. i tried zone alarm, malwarebytes,
and tdsskiller over and over again, with no luck. then my
ability to connect to the net went away. i gave up and restored
my hdd using the file i made just after i thought i had gotten
rid of the problems, so that though i would still have the viruses,
i would get back the net. using tdsskiller and malwarebytes
still did not work, and a new virus showed up. .

i'm including the logs from zone alarm, malwarebytes, and tdsskiller.

i would really appreciate help.

Hello,

I am on a laptop running Windows 7 and a couple of days ago, Ad-aware found two viruses: Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT & Win32.Trojan.Agent - see details on quarantined items pasted at the bottom of this note. I've tried numerous times to remove the viruses by rebooting, as recommended, and rescanning, but it's only gotten worse. I can now no longer access most of my programs, including any virus scan programs (Adaware, Malwarebytes). I was able to download RKill but when I try to run any of the different versions nothing happens - have tried renaming with no sucess. When using Internet Explorer, Google search is redirected to other sites. I've tried using safe mode with the same results.

Please let me know if you can help? Here's the virus scan log from a few days ago, when I was actually able to run Adaware.

Thanks in advance!!

I have a nasty infection that has taken over my machine and which I cannot remove. The infection seems to hijack the google page and any links that I click from this page take me to what appears to be rogue websites, which want me to download their stuff.

I am currently running ESET Nod 32 and Ad-aware Anniversary Edition. Both these programs are picking up the trojan infections but are unable to clean.

I have tried to install malwarebytes but have been unable to do so. I did try changing the exe name of malwarebytes (as advised on this site) but the program does not fully complete the installation.

I have downloded the DDS tool, ran the scan and have now attached the lod to this post.

Also here is a copy of the Ad-aware scan log (I did not complete the scan due to the computer constantly crashing):

Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT - c:\windows\system32\d-link_st3402.dll
Win32.Trojan.Agent - c:\windows\system32\d-link_st3402.dll

I ran the MiniToolBox and have attached the results of that. I tried running going into safe mode and running RKill, then SAS, then rebooting into normal mode and running MBAN but it always seems to come back. I also attached the MBAN log as well.

I hope someone can help, otherwise it looks like a long night of reformatting is ahead of me......

Hello all,
a few days ago i suddenly had a popup from an unknown software called SecurityTool that installed itself on my pc and claimed i have a lot of infections and viruses. after googling its name i realized that was a fake thing and that SecurityTool is actually a harmful software so i followed some online instructions on how to remove it. (deleting files and registry entries..) it all made sense, basically a manual software removal procedure.
after that, my antivirus (avast home) started finding many trojan and malware infections in files on my pc. i ran a few scans with avast (not before updating it of course) but the infected files just kept being created everytime i had them deleted with avast.
i looked at what services i had running and did some research on all the names i couldnt recognize, and found that some might be malwares, others definitely malwares so i ran scans with "spybot s&d" and "malwarebyte's anti malware" and cleaned most of the things they reported. other infections which avast was reporting and i couldnt find with the previously mentioned scans i had to google and see how to manually remove.
finally, it seemed as though i got things under control but than after a couple of quiet days, i tried making sure all is well and ran an antivirus scan again, avast found yet some more infected files. they somehow keep popping up here.. in new places. some scans turn out clean and the day after again, infected files. and also suddenly ...

Hi,I'm running Windows XP - Internet Explorer v. 6.00, SP3. Yesterday Avast alerted me to a virus on my computer (I neglected to write down the exact message). At the time, only Gmail was open and an email was being written. I've had some issues with Avast occasionally reporting a false positive, and since nothing was being downloaded at that time, I took no action with Avast. Instead, I immediately did a Quick Scan with MalwareBytes to see if it would find anything. MalwareBytes found and deleted the following: C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Owner\application data\Sun\Java\deployment\cache\\6.0\44\61b86cac-3c0c0928Trojan.FakeAlert.VGenC:\Documents and Settings\HP_Owner\local settings\temp\0.506697477033.exeTrojan.FakeAlert.VGenA second MalwareBytes scan was clean.I looked "Trojan.FakeAlert.VGen" up on Google and then it clicked: for the past few days, Adobe Flash Player has been crashing an awful lot. When it crashes (on Youtube, for example), it tells me the program is out of date and needs to be updated. The weird thing was that sometimes it worked for a while before it crashed, but I dismissed that as being some strange computer quirk. I went to the Adobe web site and tried to install the newest version of Flash Player, but was unable to. I feel foolish, but it never even occurred to me that a virus could be to blame. It concerns me that (assuming the Adobe Flash Pla... Read more

Refrain from posting logs without being asked to post a log...

Run a scan with Malwarebytes Anti Malware ( A full scan, make sure you download install and update malwarebytes anti malware, before attempting to scan with it ;) )

You dont have allll those anti viruses on your computer at once, do you?
