    Hello,

    I mistakenly clicked on some link on yahoo IM which has completed messed my system!

    I cannot access Task Manager :'(
    I dont find "RUN" on the Start Menu :'(
    I cant edit the IE home page.. It keeps redirecting to the same coolpics site :mad:

    I have tried so many things i read on various forums, but none have helpded.

    I even tried the BFU installer?? But to no avail...

    I tried opened the CMD from system32 and made some registry changes to enable regedit and taskmanager, however it lets me open them only after after the entry is executed in cmd....

    I can see anything suspicious running in TaskMgr though...

    Tried changing the homepage form the registry, but that dint help...

    I see that LSASS.exe keeps running always and takes a lot of CPU memory... Could that be the culprit??

    Also I see a folder in each of the HD drives called "IT University", this looks like an application (.exe)...

    Can someone please guide how can get rid of this irritating thing, before i try to reinstall my OSo_O

    I have stopped connecting to internet from yesterday fearing that it may cause any further problems...

    Hi cmanjunath,

    snowbound asked me to help you. :)

    Download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.
    • Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
    • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply
    Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall

    Regards,

    Pieter

    It shouldn't leak anything that is hasn't already leaked.
    As far as I know all this malware does is display annoying ads.
    The log is a snaphot of your PC and doesn't reveal any usable personal info.
    I do see your log so no worries there.

    Analyzing now ......

    I actually see no reason why my BFU script would not have worked.

    One question:
    Did you or some software you are using disable the Folder options menu?

    (In explorer > tools > you will see no Folder options )
    No problem if it is by design. Could be due to using HFF

    Please follow these instructions:
    Download Brute Force Uninstaller to your desktop.
    • Right click the BFU folder on your desktop, and choose Extract All
    • Click "Next"
    • In the box to choose where to extract the files to,
    • Click "Browse"
    • Click on the + sign next to "My Computer"
    • Click on "Local Disk (C: ) or whatever your primary drive is
    • Click "Make New Folder"
    • Type in BFU
    • Click "Next", and Uncheck the "Show Extracted Files" box and then click "Finish".
    RIGHT-CLICK HERE and choose "Save As" (in IE it's "Save Target As") in order to download Coolpics Remover.
    Save it in the same folder you made earlier (c:\BFU).

    Then, please go to Start > My Computer and navigate to the C:\BFU folder.
    • Start the Brute Force Uninstaller by doubleclicking BFU.exe
    • Behind the scriptline to execute field click the folder icon http://metallica.geekstogo.com/foldericon.png and select coolpics.bfu
    • Put a checkmark in the "Show log after script ends"
    • Press Execute and let it do it’s job. (You ought to see a progress bar if you did this correctly.)
    • Wait for the complete script execution box to pop up and press OK.
    • Post the BFU log.
    • Press exit to terminate the BFU program.
    Reboot your computer and post a new Combofix log.

    Hello,

    1. I checked in Explorer and could not find folder oprtions. I used to find this in the past...

    2. I ran the BFU, like I have done in the past... Here are the logs:

    BFU v1.00.9
    Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600 SP2)
    Script started at 9:20:27 PM, on 5/14/2007

    Failed: FileDelete C:\DOCUME~1\Manju\LOCALS~1\Temp\~DF67B0.tmp (operation failed)
    Failed: FileDelete C:\DOCUME~1\Manju\LOCALS~1\Temp\~DF7552.tmp (operation failed)
    Failed: FileDelete C:\DOCUME~1\Manju\LOCALS~1\Temp\~DF47E9.tmp (operation failed)
    Failed: FolderDelete C:\Documents and Settings\Manju\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\KXOTQJW1 (operation failed)
    Script completed.

    3. Will reboot, run the combofix and copy the logs.

    Ok. So we have a little more to deal with:

    First we will make a backup of your registry.
    Go to Start > Run
    Type:
    • regedit
    Click OK.
    • On the leftside, click to highlight My Computer at the top.
    • Go up to "File > Export"
      • Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch.
        Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files".
        Under "Filename" put backup
    • Choose to save it to C:\ or somewhere else safe so that you will remember where you put it (don't put it on the desktop!)
    • Click save and then go to File > Exit.
    This is so the registry can be restored to this point if we need it. It may take a minute. Just let it go until it's done.

    Next, please launch Notepad, and copy/paste the contents of the code box below into a new Notepad file, starting from the phrase REGEDIT4. Save it with file name RegFix.reg and save as file type: all files to your desktop.


    Code:
    REGEDIT4
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run]
    "inetsrv"=-
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\system]
    "DisableRegistryTools"=-
    "DisableTaskMgr"=-
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer]
    "NoFolderOptions"=-
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer]
    "NoFolderOptions"=-
    "NoRun"=-
    

    Now please locate RegFix.reg on your desktop, double click it, and click OK to allow it to merge with your registry.

    Once done, reboot your computer and post a new ComboFix log.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    One extra step please.
    Please do this before you reboot, but after applying the registry fix.

    Then copy & paste the text in bold below into notepad and save it as recyclerem.bat
    (Set filetype to "All Files")


    attrib -r -s -h %systemdrive%\Recycler
    del %systemdrive%\Recycler
    attrib -r -s -h %systemdrive%\Recycled
    del %systemdrive%\Recycled
    shutdown /r /t 0 /f


    Close all programs and doubleclick recyclerem.bat

    Your computer will reboot and you will have a shiny new (empty) recycle bin.
    So if there is anything in there (besides a worm called Driveinfo.exe) make sure you have copies.

    Hi Pieter,

    I do not have RUN when I click on start! That disappeared when the PC got infected.

    I cant open regedit from C\Windows\System32... it gives an error that the admin has blocked it?? or something like that...

    Somebody had given me a command that I ran using cmd from the system32 folder... This lets me open the regedit only for once after I run this command...

    Please advise how I would be able to follow the steps you have instructed...

    Thanks Much!

    If regedit has been disabled we will have to wing it if we need a backup.
    I think I can repair any damage.
    Proceed without making a backup.

    @ annoyed,

    Your post was split off and you will be helped separately or we will end up confusing all of us, me first. :D

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi Pieter,

    Am sorry, I dint get your instructions... Do u mean I can skip the registry backup step and try the others?

    Will the registry fix file still work when the regedit is disabled?

    Thanks

    Yes please.
    That depends on how they disabled it. My guess is doubleclicking a reg file should still work.

    Let me know.
    If it fails I will write you another bfu script.

    Hi Pieter,

    Clicking on the file still gave me the error that regedit has been disabled... it got disabled when the PC got infected.

    Anyways, I reinstlled the Win XP on a different drive and formatted my primary drive... as I did have much data to loose...

    Now my new OS seems to be Okay, I have installed Spybot search & Destroy and ran a search and now all is clean :)

    Howeve, I want to make sure i dont run into these irritating viruses in the future...

    Can u please suggest a good Antivirus software i can download which is effective, unline Norton which was of no help....

    Thanks again!

    I am sorry you had to take such drastic measures. :(

    There are several good AVs. I don't think it's my place to determine what's right for you.
    I use Kaspersky, NOD32 and AVG on different computers. I find them all sufficient, but much depends on your computer habits (mainly surfing) and other security measures.

    Even Norton knows the worm you had besides coolpics:
    http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2006-062913-2851-99&tabid=2

    If your computer is networked you may want to check the other computers in the network.

    Be carefull out there and read a lot in these forums which are full of good information on computer security. :)

    Regards,

    Pieter
