So I contracted this stupid peice of ish from my friend, who thought it'd be funny to send me links to goggled porn sites, disguised by the "tinyURL" crap.

Anyway... I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of it.

I'm not really comfortable following the goggled results on how to manually fix it. As 1. It involves modifying the registry... and 2... It's goggle. That's where I got this from.

I can't seem to run any kind of spyware or anti-virus removal tool. It just tells me that "(insert windows system file name here) is unable to execute. Protect this system now!" And from there it links you to purchase their "software protection."

Anyway, all this bugger does it lock me out of the internet, task manager, prevent me from running anything to do with antivirus, spyware, or anything of the sort, and on top of that links me to stupid websites at random.

So.... any ideas?

Hi -

Can you send me the link you received, via Private Message? I'd like to pass it on to some researchers.

Click Here


To try to fix this thing, I'd like to first get some analysis logs.

Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of
There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.


Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine, and then try once again to run DDS and GMER.

Please do this:

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here, here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.


Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop.
  • Double click the exe file.
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.

    Click the image to enlarge it

  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are unchecked
    • Sections
    • 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 attach it in reply.

Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

Please include the following logs in your thread:
  • Contents of the DDS.txt posted as text in your reply
  • Attach the Attach.txt and the ark.txt to your post by clicking the Manage Attachments button under Additonal Options>Attach Files on the composition page. Browse to where you saved the file, and click Upload.


Thank you.

Gmer choses not to run. I've downloaded it, but when attempting to open it, it simply does not open.

On a side note... I've made a bit of progress. I can now access the internet on the infected computer... but a few, random programs will not work. For one, Gmer, as well as Steam, and Spyware docotor. I was able to run AVG, but it wasn't able to find anything. I'm not getting spammed that I'm unprotected anymore, and my windows security center states that AVG is up and running.

It's weird, cause I've done virtually nothing to it since I contracted it.

dds.txt seems incomplete, was that all there was?

Try downloading a fresh copy of gmer from the link above, rename it to a .com extension, run rkill once again, then try gmer.

To ensure you're actually renaming it to a correct .com extension,

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Also make sure there is no checkmark beside Hide file extensions for known file types
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.


Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms diminish. Lack of symptoms does not always mean the job is complete.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by me or another helper at this forum.
