Reboot virus

I have got a virus that casuses my computer to give a blue screen and then reboots repeatly.  Any attempt to clean the computer, even in save mode, causes a reboot...  Even running SDFix gets terminated with the blue screen. 

 

Any help would be most appreciated.

Re: Reboot virus

Hi Jon

I can see Spybot and Ad-aware in your log are these all running in  realtime along with Norton? You may have to wait a while until our resident log readers log on.But if you can answer the question it's a start.Thanks. To many realtime products conflict or did you download them to fix the problem?

Cheers Mo

Re: Reboot virus

Good catch, Mo.  Teatimer is a real issue.  If the Adaware is an older free version, there shouldn't be a problem, but the new version also has real time scanning.

Re: Reboot virus

Yes I've got Adaware 8.0.0.0 with live watch running along with NIS 2009.  Funny that the virus has happened soon after updating to 2009 and updating Adaware... maybe just a coincidence?  I don't think that I have spybot running as well (but teatimer does ring a bell), however I do manually run a scan with it from time to time. 

 

Hope it is of more help in solving the problem.

Jon

Re: Reboot virus

A blue screen is often indicative of program conflict.  What can happen, as well as actual conflict, is that the programs get confused as to which program is doing what, when.  In that kind of environment, it is very easy to become infected as none of the programs are working properly.

 

I use Adaware as well, but it is an older version that has no real-time scanning ability.  There is no conflict.  If you do a search on the forum for either Spybot S & D and Teatimer, you will find many, many problems with incompatibility.

 

I would recommend removing both Adaware and Spybot to allow your system to run well enough to determine if you still have any malware.

Re: Reboot virus

I have removed spybot and adaware, but of course I'm still getting bule screens and reboots.  I even get these if the system remains too long at the login prompt for the user account.  I have even tried to run a ghost restore, but my system cannot find Ghost or NIS.  When I run them manually... boom blue screen and reboot.

Re: Reboot virus

You should try to disable automatic restarting after a blue screen. The instructions for disabling this can be found at that location even though the problem is different. From that you can see the text on the blue screen and with that information it might be easier to address your problem.

Re: Reboot virus

[ Edited ]

Reese's suggestion would help a lot.  Also, your Norton is this a downloaded version or do you have a CD install disk?

 

Do you have access to another computer so you can download some helping / fixing files?

 

Next, if you can still run HiJackThis, run it, check the following and have HJT fix the items:

 

N3 - Netscape 7: user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://home.netscape.com/bookmark/7_2/home.html"); (C:\Documents and Settings\JON\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\2tx5nj51.slt\prefs.js)

N3 - Netscape 7: user_pref("browser.search.defaultengine", "engine://C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%5CNetscape%5CNetscape%5Csearchplugins%5CSBWeb_01.src"); (C:\Documents and Settings\JON\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\2tx5nj51.slt\prefs.js)

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install

O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-20\..\Run: [CTFMON.EXE] C:\WINDOWS\system32\CTFMON.EXE (User 'NETWORK SERVICE')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [CTFMON.EXE] C:\WINDOWS\system32\CTFMON.EXE (User 'SYSTEM')
O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [CTFMON.EXE] C:\WINDOWS\system32\CTFMON.EXE (User 'Default user')

That's it for the list.

 

On the next boot (figure that this will probably be the time limit by now) uninstall Daemon; you can install it later, but it will be a problem right now.

 

Please post back with the results of this round.  Especially need the answers to questions at top.  Thanks you.

Oh, forgot to ask - You did uninstall SpyBot S&D and Ad-Aware (for the time being)?

Re: Reboot virus

The best way to remove a virus from an infected system is to boot from a Norton Recovery Disk (NRD).  If the product you purchased came with an NRD, cold-boot the system and boot from the CD.

 

If the product you purchased did not come with an NRD, the instructions on how to download and configure one can be found here:
