Help: How do i get rid of this trojan...

by Mysts / February 4, 2010 10:23 PM PST

and where can I find more information about it. If someone, would be able to provide me any information about how to remove it, what it is, where it comes from more than what the malwarebytes forums has provided. That would be great. The trojan file is below DO NOT CLICK, DO NOT PAST in the URL
<ul><b><u>fes.sk/files/sup/index.php?a, undetected browser hijacker?? </u></b>
</ul>
I am looking for a way to remove this trojan file and more resources about this file. I have tried googling it up and all that comes up is two forum posts on malwarebytes.org

<a href="http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=38757&pid=194085&st=0&#entry194085">http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=38757&pid=194085&st=0&#entry194085</a>

<a href="http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=38842">http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=38842</a>

I am curious as to what it will take to remove this issue and fix it.. Also how to guard against it as well.

In advanced a great thanks...

You can try to scan the system...
by Donna Buenaventura / February 5, 2010 3:07 AM PST

using SUPERAntispyware and a standalone rootkit scanner. Before scanning using another malware scanner or any other trustworthy malware scanner/remover, you need to temporary disable the protection of antivirus to prevent interfering with the removal process.

Try disabling the AV's protection... rescan using MBAM or:

SUPERAntispyware (SAS) http://download.cnet.com/SuperAntiSpyware-Free-Edition/3000-8022_4-10523889.html
A2 Free (A2) http://download.cnet.com/A-squared-Free/3000-2239_4-10262215.html
F-Secure Blacklight http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/security/security-lab/tools-and-services/blacklight/

If nothing will remove this trojan, post the required log by malware removal forums. Choose one forum from: http://hjt-data.trendmicro.com/hjt/analyzethis/index.php to post the log.

Fix for the virus
by Jim__H / February 6, 2010 2:34 AM PST

You have picked up a rootkit virus. I believe it is a variation of the Google Redirect virus. It redirects not only Google, but every website that doesn't start with https. Download Hitman Pro 3.5 from CNET website (fully functional for 30 day trial) and it will remove the virus within a few minutes.

http://download.cnet.com/3001-2239_4-10895604.html?spi=c857b9ac760261ab154a50493d9e606d

I researched this the other day for hours. Many people reported that the major anti-malware packages not only could not remove it, they could not even detect it. I tried MBAM and ComboFix, but neither worked. Lots of people resorted to reformatting their hard drive and reinstalling windows. Finally, I found many people had success the software I mentioned above. In my case, it had infected a driver whose complete name escapes me (USB something .SYS in the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers directory).

Report back here if this advice works so others can benefit.

In reply to: Fix for the virus

Unfortantly, by the time we were learning that it was a rootkit virus of the redirect. through hijack logs and combofix plus gmer..
The computer system crashed and could not be rebooted to continue on with the search.

Thank you very much though for your help. I shall pass this on as a future reference.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
