    Default Big time virus/malware

    I've gotten a computer virus or malware that basically blocks me from accessing any type of security software's website to get updates for my software to remove the damn thing and I basically can't think of any way to root the shit out of my laptop.

    Any suggestions?

    Which malware do you speak of? It may have a particular solution. Otherwise, blast it with whatever AV you have (AVG or Avast preferable), Spybot S&D, HiJackThis!, and maybe as a last resort, ComboFix. Once hopefully cleansed, patch it up with a dose of SpywareBlaster. That should keep you good to go if you intend to stay free.

    I have the same problem as this guy has/had:

    https://www.bullguard.com/forum/10/-...-to_66294.html

    The only problem is I tried following what the forum mod suggested and I can't do what he said to do.

    Is it that you cannot download ComboFix, or can you and not run it? If it's that you cannot download it, best thing I can suggest is get it downloaded onto a flash drive from another computer and try it from there. Best of luck. I gotta sleep, so if you need help, I'll be around tomorrow.

    I've only got access to the one computer until my roomate decides to come home when he decides to get home from his weekend romp.

    I can't download it. I get a message saying windows blocked it because it tries accessing some stupid file.

    Do what I said here

    http://www.casualdiscourse.com/forum...18&postcount=2

    Unless you have a nasty infection, everything should be cleared up if you do the above. It is also worth installing a program called "Hijackthis" and pasting the results into this websites (http://www.hijackthis.de/) online analyser. Just becareful of what you remove.

    It sounds like he has something which is not allowing him to do anything until he gets both ComboFix and HiJackthis! running in safe mode. Is safe mode itself being blocked?

    I hate to mention such a drastic step, but you might want to try and backup your most crucial files and reformat the affected drive.

    I had something similar happen not too long ago (it did not need a reformat), bu it was quite odd in how it unfolded. I left my computer on while going to watch Heroes, no torrents or files downloading, no connections open except for Firefox, and within the hour, something had rebooted and infected my computer. Logged back on, thinking it was just my screensaver that triggered the login screen, and I was treated to "buy Antivirus 2009 now!" shit. Most webpages were blocked, Avast wouldn't start, but somehow, I got Combofix (from another computer I think), and cleared everything up. Killed my whole night, but otherwise a clean system.

    Maybe this is similar to what you have?

    Yes its similar to what I have. I'll just have to wait a day to be able to get combofix from another computer and save it in a flash drive to put in my laptop.

    See if you can download Super Anti Spyware. It is free and can be found here.

    It sounds like a lame program, but it finds and fixes things that Spybot, Adaware, AVG, and CCleaner don't fix. It is honestly the best program that I have used for deleting nasty files. If you can't access the website, PM me and I'll rapidshare the executable for you.

    Also, make sure to boot up in safe mode when you run the scan, as it will be able to scan more files that way.

    I agree about Super Anti Spyware. It does indeed kick ass. I had a Smitfraud infection last summer. Easy fix, right, because there's a program specially written to clean it. Except yeah it didn't work. Super Anti Spyware was the ONLY thing that did, and I tried a butt ton.

    Here's the log from my scan, anybody see anything that could be causing my problem? I've ran like 5 or 6 virus scans and still have the same problem. The spyware and anti-virus scans did pick shit up, but that was gon since the first scans.

    Delete all the [no file] and [file missing] entries, and read what I have next to the other entries in bold... I know it's not much help, but it's something.

    I would still suggest Combofix if you can get it. I can Rapidshare that to you too if you'd like.

    Please do rapidshare it for me, It's probably the only way I'll get rid of this shit.

    Here's the tutorial if you need it. I tossed it into anonym.to for hope that the infection won't block it.

    Hey, just trying to regain my status here as a semi-reasonable computer nerd. That, and I had his almost exactly happen to me, so I'm always glad to help out someone who is also affected by this pest.

    Certainly, it helps that I'm bored as fuck too. :P

    I'd still suggest Super Anti Spyware. Anti-virus programs don't catch all malware, no matter how good they are.

    How did you work that out from the log, out of interest?

    I pasted the Hijackthis log into the analyser site I posted above, then googled "winbjv32.dll" and several sites said it was "a variant of the Trojan.Win32.Agent.qt Trojan."

    Kal El, have you fixed this problem yet?

    Yes I have, thanks everybody for the help. I meant to post sooner that I fixed it but I got distracted with work.

    That trojan was a pain in the ass to root out.
