After Malware Attack, Cannot Edit Registry

I have had a series of malware attacks. Despite good security (yeah, right!) from McAfee and Spy Sweeper, I now find that my IE homepage is locked and I cannot do a registry edit to unlock it. It says I cannot access it. I find that this is true anywhere in the registry!

I have fiddled with security permissions, but they don't seem to give me access.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Sid. I'm hopeful you might be able to help me. I have read of some who suggest a reinstall of Vista or an "upgrade" of Vista. I'm praying it won't come to this!!

Here is the HijackThis log:

Hello, Brink,

I will definitely work on this tutorial that you refer me to...and report back to you.
I may not have made clear that I AM able to ACCESS the registry and maneuver about. I am just not able to make SOME changes in it. The change that I cannot make is to change my home page. It is locked and I am unable to unlock it.

This must be a malware problem, for I recently tried making just any change in the registry, and I was, in fact, able to do so.

Thanks. More later.

Hi Stephen,

What is your home page? Some malware forces a specific home page. I notice that you have had a variant of the 'Vundo' malware on your system. It is possible that if this hasn't been entirely removed that this could be causing your problem.

Stephen,

Do you have any security program installed that has a feature that prevents your IE7 homepage from being changed?

To Dwarf and Brink:

Indeed, the trojan Vundo-Variant/Small has been plaguing me for days!!

Here is the history of my attempt to rid my system of this pest!

I have been spending days and days trying to eliminate the pesky Vundo-Variant/Small from my Dell Vista XPS PC. I have used numerous anti-spyware programs, including a-squared free, Blacklight Rootkit Detector, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware; Spy Weeper, Spyware Blaster, and SuperAntiSpyware. I have run all of these in regular boot and in safe mode. I have closed the Explorer process and the Windows logon, and shut down the PC with my button. I have deleted temp files. I have followed directions from numerous forums.

The special Vundo removal programs (FixVundo [from Symantec], Vundo Fix, and VirtuMundoBeGone: none has detected the trojan!! Whenever I run either Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware, I get from 2 to 3 hits of this trojan (user files and registry files, in various combinations--the latest had no registry files, only user file entries, weird file names). I also get some nasty things show up in Hijack This. Every time I delete them, the same of different nasties reappear in the Hijack This file.

I DO think I have had some luck with a program called T-R: Trojan Remover. I am using the trial version, and it said I had removed a file and it renamed others. (The log file (very long) from this run is attached.)

But I see what looks like suspicious Vundo junk on the Hijack This log I sent you earlier.

To repeat: it doesn't seem to matter whether I run the antispyware programs in regular mode or safe mode. Neither actually rids the trojan. I tried using Ultimate Boot Disk, but it doesn't seem to work in Vista...it seems to load, then the Windows logo appears and I get the blue screen of death, and the ultimate boot disk won't load.

At this stage I am not sure whether or not Vundo is gone, and if there are traces, just how volatile they are!

Also, attached is a screenshot of the home page that the malware reverted me to. When I clicked on IE's home page just now, I get Hotmail. The home page in the General options shows MSN as the home page.

UPDATE: Indeed, in fact, there is a kind of lock on the home page in Spysweeper. I changed the home page options in Spysweeper, and now in IE, it DOES show the correct home page. But in the course of resetting the home page, which seems to be holding, it acted rather flakey, so I think Vundo is still doing its ugly stealthy work.

BUT...it would seem that perhaps Spysweeper was preventing me from making registry changes to the locked home page option! So perhaps things are okay. I haven't had the annoying popups lately. Maybe I'm home free?

And I am submitting another, more recent, Hijack This log:

Sid,

Since the posts don't appear immediately, I'm not sure if my last post actually went through. Here is a screenshot of the names in my security/permissions folder. I wonder what's up with the name you mentioned?♠

Hi Stephen,

There is nothing to worry about here. The 'net user' command just provides a list of users on your PC in alphabetical order - it does not provide the type or group of the users. To find out this information, click the start orb and type 'control userpasswords2' into the search box and press enter/return. You will need to provide administrative credentials. The following image is what you should see - note that I have removed the user names from this image.

No. I didn't install Intel VIIV Software. It must have come with my Dell XPS PC.

>>Who has read an write permissions in HKCU? (right click HKCU in the registry and choose "permissions")

RESTRICTED has ReAD permission only
SYSTEM has FULL CONTROL AND READ
STEPHEN C. GALLEHER (StephenCGall-PC\Stephen C. Galleher) has FULL CONTROL AND READ
ADMINISTRATORS (StephenCGall-PC\Administrators) has FULL CONTROL AND READ


Thanks for your continuing sleuth work.

UPDATE: My IE homepage continues to hold and not change (after fixing it through Spysweeper.)

I have had no popup attacks while online today. The speed of my PC is great, at the moment.

OK, then if the Intel software was already there and if you don't use it, remove it and delete the "alien" user.
For the homepage, it is blocked surely by an anti-spy you installed or by your AV software. In this case, you can disable the "block homepage" function in the settings.

BTW, are you able to export/import reg files from HKCU as you have full permission?

Once everything will be OK, we'll remove some entries shown in the log file. 'not important for thr moment.

Hi Stephen,

A quick scan of your HJT log reveals the following entries (bear in mind that I am not an HJT analyzer, but these entries look suspicious to me).

C:\Program Files\Webshots\webshots.scr

A .scr file extension indicates a screen-saver, however they are also a common way that malware is transported. I would uninstall/delete this file.

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {1C98ED08-32BF-4B69-BC80-625CDA74D9EF} - C:\Windows\system32\vTlkIBTn.dll (file missing)

This could be connected to the Vundo malware that you have had on your system. A quick scan of Google and Yahoo reveals no matches for vTlkIBTn.dll, which is suspicious.

O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Uninstall BitDefender Online Scanner v8 - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - C:\Windows\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)

This item refers to BitDefender. If you have installed or used this program, then that would explain its presence here. If not, then it could be malware. Malware uses legitimate programs in many ways, including using the filename and other information from the genuine file in order to hide itself.

I also notice that you have a download manager and a bit-torrent client installed. Personally, I don't recommend these (there are bound to be people who disagree with me, but that's their perogative). Some malware can actually propagate itself through these means.

What I would do is click on 'Send Log to TrendMicro' and follow the instructions to submit the file to one of the forums listed. You will have to check your chosen forum for replies to your query.

It shouldn't do any harm to check the above mentioned 2 items and then click 'Fix checked'. However, if you are unsure, please wait to see what the forum suggests.

Hope this helps.
Dwarf
