Avast! doesnt remove a rootkit file
« on: January 22, 2011, 02:01:32 AM »
Hello to everybody, I'm new here and I'm looking for help.

First of all, sorry, my English is disaster.

Last night I used Avast! AV to scan my comuter and it found a infected ROOTKIT file on

C:/winodows/windows32/drivers/fylwqx.sys

Since Avast! found it i have a "blue screen" and I can't access to my User profile on Windows Vista.

Avast was not able to delete the infected file as well some others AV programs (AVIRA, SPYBOOT, AVG...). I have tried to remove the rootkit file manually but without success.

Now, I'm useing SAFE MODE with networking. But even in SAFE MODE, blue screen comes up frequently.


What do you think I should do?

Thank you!

Hi this can be run from safe mode

Download OTL  to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
netsvcs
%SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
/md5start
explorer.exe
winlogon.exe
Userinit.exe
svchost.exe
/md5stop
%systemroot%\*. /mp /s
c:\system volume information|_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE;true;true;true /FP
CREATERESTOREPOINT


  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Attach both logs please

Thank you very much for your help!

 I did exactly as you said and here there are two files OLT.txt and EXTRAS.txt

When you have extra time, please check it and see if there is some suspicious services.

 Thanks again!

Best regards!

It looks like the infection came from a USB drive.  Once combofix starts running allow it to boot back to normal mode if possible.   

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

Code: [Select]

CUPIC,

Hold off on formatting until Essexboy gives you further instruction.  He has other tools he can use to help you.  He usually comes on the forum late UK time.  Thank you.

Thank you!

I downloaded a Combofix and run it, although the program is reported that I should download a newer version of it. I have not done so.

The file that  caused the problems now no longer exists!

That was the fylwqx.sys file in system32/drivers. And now I can access to my User prfile, normally.

But, I noticed one very strange service in startup on my msconfig, called ,,futur" It did not exist before.

Should I turn off that service?

The LOG combofix file is attached.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Hi you must let combofix update - otherwise it cannot do its job properly.  You have been using some infected USB drives, they need to be vaccinated using Panda USB Vaccine  http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/downloads/usbvaccine/

1. Please open Notepad
  • Click Start , then Run
  • Type notepad .exe in the Run Box.
2. Now copy/paste the entire content of the codebox below into the Notepad window:

Quote
File::
c:\users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\DZE.exe

Driver::
DZE
fylwqx

Registry::
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{377dff67-a9de-11dd-bac3-001b383f358f}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{39106cf0-ab35-11dd-9726-001b383f358f}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{52b58a6f-ada5-11dd-bbed-001b383f358f}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{cba4564c-d7e6-11dd-8f78-001b383f358f}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{d9ba48f4-d8ac-11dd-b4b9-001b383f358f}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{dc5d4ae4-dd57-11dd-a1db-001b383f358f}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{edb5e675-24ee-11e0-808a-da2f9059bcb9}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\mountpoints2\{f4da3995-caf2-11dd-b7aa-001b383f358f}]


3. Then in the text file go to FILE > SAVE AS and in the dropdown box select SAVE AS TYPE to ALL FILES

4. Save the above as CFScript.txt

5. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as depicted in the animation below.  This will start ComboFix again.




6. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), please post the following reports/logs into your next reply:
  • Combofix.txt
  • A new OTListit log.

To be honest... Remove Spybot and get winpatrol and MBAM to cover your security

Allow it
