    clean install of XP trojan:DOS/alureon.e showing up?
    « on: January 15, 2012, 06:12:28 PM »
    I'm a little confused and hope someone can help.

    I did a fresh install of XP on a computer that had a virus.  I copied over the pictures, music, documents, etc to my external before I reinstalled and copied them back on after the reinstall.

    I installed all of the updates and Microsoft Security Essentials and ran a scan thinking if the virus came from something I had saved it would be good to get rid of it prior to the computer being used again.

    MSE found trojan:DOS/alureon.e.  I clicked on remove and rebooted.  MSE immediately found it again.  I downloaded Trend's rootkitbuster which didn't find anything.  Downloaded Super AntiSpyware which didn't find anything.  I turned off system restore and cleaned it again with MSE.  MSE found it again on the next reboot.

    I haven't run into this before and wonder if anyone can help me out here.

    In trying to find out where the virus is located I saw this:

    Items:
    boot:\Device\HarddiskVolume3
    boot:\Device\HarddiskVolume3\
    boot:\\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0\Partition2 (Type 17)

    Anyone know what this means?

    Thanks,

    Jody

    Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

    1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
    2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
    3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
    4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
    5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
    6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
    7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

    If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
    *************************************************************************
    Please download aswMBR.exe ( 511KB ) to your desktop.

    Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it



    Click the "Scan" button to start scan

    Note: Do not take action against any **Rootkit** entries until I have reviewed the log. Often there are false positives



    On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply

        Please try this.

        Please download ComboFix from BleepingComputer.com

        Alternate link: GeeksToGo.com

        and save it to your Desktop.
        It would be easiest to download using Internet Explorer.
        If you want to use Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

        * Tools->Options->Main tab
        * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

        Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found here
        Double click ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
        As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
        Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console

        Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

        Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


        Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
        When finished, it shall produce a log for you.  Please include the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

        If you have problems with ComboFix usage, see How to use ComboFix
