Possible Virus

PostPosted: Sun May 06, 2012 4:13 am

I am encountering crashes on my laptop, mainly from Firefox. Also I get the blue screen which only displays for a few seconds before the laptop restarts. I've tried running scans with S&D and McAfee but they freeze up. Worried I may have "caught" something.

I've posted the HijackThis log below.

Any help appreciated

Steve

I don't like these two lines, plus you are running Mcafee and Spybot together that can have issues with a)the anti phishing filter and b) the identity theft protection... Remove one of them, preferably McAfee and install the free Microsoft Security Essentials. Plus download Malwarebytes Antimalware - its free - install and update it, clear your system internet cache (I use CrapCleaner for this) and reboot into SAFE MODE. In SAFE MODE run Malwarebytes Antimalware, you may be surprised what it picks up...

I seem to remember years ago, there were issues with Webshots installing nasties. I don't know if that is still true. If you can live without it, try removing it and see what happens.

Thanks for the replies.

I ran a scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware which picked up 1 suspect. This was a search engine which I removed that was within Internet Explorer 8.

I've removed the sweetIM toolbar from Firefox and the Real Player.

Webshots is disabled from connecting to the internet.

I'm still getting the blue screen which shows "Win 32 SysK" I'm wondering if it is related to a file called Win32K which is located C:Windows/System32

Spybot scanned with no problems found.

Thanks

Steve

IMO, in order to protect your PC from nasties it takes more than one utility or action on the users part.

CCleaner, Super AntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, FSecure Black Light, a good Anti Virus Utility, a good firewall, a locked down network, and a browser configured the right way, no risky browsing habits, will all be a good way to start.

sysk sounds like it is part of a trojan dropper or a rootkit. I suggest you give these guys a visit as they have somewhat specialized in removing that stuff.

If you don't feel like spending a lot more time in cleaning with the risk it still will not solve the bsod's a clean windows install will do the job...

I have found these to work for me, got these from evasive.

Use these 3 in the exact order:

1- rkill.exe

2- TDSS killer

3- Malwarebytes

That "sysk32" is listed as a threat.
Before extracting that nasty bot, turn off the 'restore' feature of the OS. Then do the cleaning process. After a few reboots and ensuring it is wiped out, then turn the 'restore' feature back on. Otherwise, all your work will be in vain!
