I'm having some problems with my computer. I can't open most programs that would help me (spybot, adaware, malwarebytes). When I try to open these I get a notification that "ana.exe" is trying to make changes and needs permission. Of course, I don't let it but the programs won't open. I can't open Firefox or Internet Explorer. I have tried to use system restore but it is shut off or something... I've never seen that before. I tried to use system restore from the boot process but it wouldn't let me.

I also get a fake Windows Security Center popup that tells me to download some security program. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome. Please follow these guidelines while we work on your PC:
  • Malware removal is a sometimes lengthy and tedious process. Please stick with the thread until I’ve given you the “All clear.” Absence of symptoms does not mean your machine is clean!
  • Please do not run any scans or install/uninstall any applications without being directed to do so.
  • Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within three days this thread will be closed.
Please subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted. To do this click Thread Tools, then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant Notification, then click Subscribe.

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop.
  • Double click the exe file. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.

    Click the image to enlarge it

  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in reply.
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

If you have trouble running GEMR:
  • Make sure that your security software is disabled
  • Uncheck the box next to "Files" this time also
  • If you still can't run it, try in the Safe Mode
Please include the following in your next post:
  • GMER log

Thanks for the response! I downloaded Gmer and wasn't able to run it at first, but then I was able to run in it safe mode. Here is the log:

Download TDSSKiller.zip and extract TDSSKiller.exe to your desktop
  • Execute TDSSKiller.exe by doubleclicking on it.
  • Press Start Scan
  • If Malicious objects are found then ensure Cure is selected. Important - If there is no option to "Cure" it is critical that you select "Skip"
  • Then click Continue > Reboot now
  • Once complete, a log will be produced in c:\. It will be named for example, TDSSKiller.
  • Attach that log, please.
Download Combofix from either of the links below, and save it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2

**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link

Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • If you have trouble, stop and post back. Do not try to repeatedly run comboFix!
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please include the following in your next post:
  • TDSSKiller log
  • ComboFix log

Hey! I think that really made some progress. Both logs are attached. It got rid of ana.exe which was causing me the most problems, but also got rid of some other stuff.

Firefox is running again and my task manager processes look a lot clearer.

Let me know if there is anything else I should do! Thanks so much.

Please do this next:

Open Notepad Go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> Notepad ( this will only work with Notepad ) and copy all the text inside the Codebox by highlighting it all and pressing CTRL C on your keyboard, then paste it into Notepad, make sure there is no space before and above File::

uInternet Settings,ProxyServer = http=
uInternet Settings,ProxyOverride = <local>
Save this as CFScript to your desktop.

Then disable your security programs and drag the CFScript into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

This will start ComboFix again. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Uncheck any entries from C:\System Volume Information or C:\Qoobox
  • Be sure that everything else is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please post the results.
Please include the following in your next post:
  • ComboFix log
  • MBAM log

Ok, the two logs are attached. Got rid of some more stuff. The stuff that was in Qoobox, I realize that is quarantined, but why not remove it?

You are correct, qoobox is the ComboFix quarantine. Occasionally ComboFix will remove something legitimate in which case procedures are available to restore them. I don't like to let other programs remove anything from there just in case I need to restore them or upload them for analysis. Once we finish we will uninstall ComboFix which will remove qoobox and everything in it.

How is your computer running now? Please do this next:

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.

Java(TM) 6 Update 20 can be updated from the Java control panel Start > Control Panel (Classic View) > Java (looks like a coffee cup) > Update Tab > Update Now. An update should begin; follow the prompts. If it does not, let me know.

Once the install is complete...

Go into the Control Panel and double-click the Java Icon. (looks like a coffee cup)
  • On the General tab, under Temporary Internet Files, click the Settings button.
  • Next, click on the Delete Files button
  • There are two options in the window to clear the cache - Leave BOTH Checked
    • Applications and Applets
    • Trace and Log Files
  • Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window
Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
  • Click OK to leave the Temporary Files Window
  • Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.
Please run ESET Online Scanner
  • Place a check mark in the box YES, I accept the Terms Of Use
  • Click the Start button.
  • Now click the Install button.
  • Click Start. The scanner engine will initialize and update.
  • Do Not place a check mark in the box beside Remove found threats.
  • Click the Scan button. The scan will now run, please be patient.
  • When the scan finishes click the Details tab.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the C:\ProgramFiles\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt into your next reply.
Please include the following in your next post:
  • How is your computer running now?
  • ESET log

My computer is running well again, thanks! The problems I was having before all seem to be gone. I know exactly how the problems started too...won't be making that same mistake again.

I updated Java.

I ran the ESET scanner. I don't see any "tab" options, but I did export the scan results which are attached.

One or more of the identified infections is possibly a keylogger.

You should change all of you passwords as soon as possible. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

You can read this: How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

This will take care of the ESET detections that are not already quarantined:

Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

@echo off
del "C:\Users\Jordan\AppData\Local\exohogev.dll"
del "C:\Users\Jordan\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\33\2265a3e1-41a176d4"
del "C:\Users\Jordan\Documents\My Games\RA2\ra2_101.exe"
del /Q %0
Save this as fix.bat Choose to "Save type as - All Files"
It should look like this:
Double click on fix.bat & allow it to run.

Now I have another update and some very important cleanup for you to take care of:

Your Adobe reader needs to be updated. Please visit Adobe's site and grab the newest version. Be sure to watch for and uncheck any boxes offering to install other software.

Uninstall ComboFix
  • Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard or click Start -> Run. Copy and past the following text into the run box that opens and press OK:
    Combofix /Uninstall

Delete the following tools along with any other logs you saved from our work:
  • DDS
  • GMER
  • TDSSKiller
Download TFC to your desktop
  • Close any open windows.
  • Double click the TFC icon to run the program
  • TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run,
  • Click the Start button to begin the process.
  • Allow TFC to run uninterrupted.
  • The program should not take long to finish it's job
  • Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine,
  • if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean
Install an anti-virus program. I don't see any anti-virus software running on your computer. Choose one, (but no more) reputable AV program. If you need help chosing one, this site has good information. Avast, Avira and Microsoft all offer free AV products.

Finally, I'd like to make a couple of suggestions to help you stay clean in the future:
  • Restart any anti-malware programs that we disabled while we were cleaning your machine.
  • Keep your antivirus application current and updated. Also, hang on to MBAM. Scan with them at least weekly.
  • Please read this post for some helpful information.
Please post once more so I know you are all set and I can mark this thread resolved. Good luck and stay safe!

Hey, many thanks. I will definitely look into getting an AV program. The few I have used in the past mostly annoyed me, took up too much system resources, or cost money. But... haven't had this serious of a problem on my computer before, so it may be time to actually get an AV program.

I am about to run TFC, and I updated Adobe Reader and uninstalled Combofix.

Glad to have my computer working again, I really appreciate all the time and help you've given to me today.
