    Help for clicker.trogan and smartsystem.rootkit
    « on: October 21, 2017, 12:34:05 PM »
    Hi,

    I am truly desperate.  I've had this now for a few weeks.  I originally started using tools from bleepingcomputer to rid myself of this issue to no avail.  I finally started to get help from their forum, however, I don't know what happened.  I was having problems replying to threads and posting and the next thing I know they banned me for spamming.  I am not a spammer.  I don't know if it's even possible that this malware I have can create such.  Please, do not boot me, without first emailing me about it.  If I run into that issue again, I think my only hope is to do a full Windows 10 reset, which I'm trying to avoid.

    I use the tool Super Antispyware twice a day and it finds around 1000 PUPs each time.  I have not used it since following your instructions.  Below are other things I've done prior to coming over to Computer Hope:
    • Deleted C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ndistpr64.sys in Safe Mode
      Ran Emsisoft Anti-Malware ... It detected Smart System rootkit but it couldn't get rid of it
      Tried Bleeping Computers instruction to remove rootkit, but my system won't allow me to install Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit.  That was the first thing the instructions wanted me to do.
      Ran GMER software and it came back with C:\\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\monjmqtw.sys (*** hidden ***)  ---- Value [BOOT] nviat
      Did not delete the file GMER came up with because I started posting on Bleeping Computer and following those instructions
      Then no sooner did I start to get help from Bleeping I was banned for being a "spammer".  So no longer getting help from them
      ???

    I have now followed Hope Computers instructions starting with CCleaner (apps & registry) and below are the logs requested:

    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 AdwareCleaner onto your Desktop. AdwCleaner

    Before starting AdwCleaner, close all open programs and internet browsers, then double-click on the AdwCleaner icon.



    If Windows prompts you as to whether or not you wish to run AdwCleaner, please allow it to run.
    When the AdwCleaner program will open, click on the Scan button as shown below.



    AdwCleaner will now start to search for malicious files that may be installed on your computer.
    To remove the files that were detected in the previous step, please click on the Clean button.



    AdwCleaner will now prompt you to save any open files or data as the program will need to reboot the computer. Please do so and then click on the OK button. AdwCleaner will now delete all detected adware from your computer. When it is done it will display an alert that explains what PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and Adware are. Please read through this information and then press the OK button. You will now be presented with an alert that states AdwCleaner needs to reboot your computer.
    Please click on the OK button to allow AdwCleaner reboot your computer.A log will be produced. Please copy and paste this log in your next reply.
    *********************************************
    Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.

    Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.

    Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

    •Temporarily disable your Antivirus and any Antispyware real time protection before performing a scan. Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.

    •Copy and Paste the JRT.txt log into your next message.
    **********************************************************
    Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
    There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
     You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

    • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
    • If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.

    • Do not reboot until instructed.
    • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

    If normal mode still doesn't work, run the tool from safe mode.

      Thank you, Sugar Dave, for your assistance.

      All day this took me.  I had to uninstall super anti-spyware for the Adware Cleaner to work.  I wasn't able to get Junkware Removal Tool to work.  Anyway, below are the two files that I have and also the message I get when trying to install the JRT.

        SUPER Dave,

        My work schedule is crazy right now and I won't get to the Malwarebytes until Sunday.  Please don't drop me.  And btw, "Sugar" Dave was not a typo.  I actually thought that is what I seen ... just so grateful to be getting help.

          ESET Online Scanner
          Note : If you use Internet Explorer to get the ESET Online Scanner, you won't have to download, nor install the tool, as everything will be ran in a contextual (pop-up) window of Internet Explorer. However, for every other browsers, you will have to download and install ESET Online Scanner. In this set of instruction, I'll use Google Chrome to download it and run it (since a lot of people will do it), however, except for the download and installation procedure, the same instructions applies if you use Internet Explorer. Please note that two or three prompts will appear if you use Internet Explorer asking you to reload the page, authorize the application, execute it, etc. Accept all of them in order to run ESET Online Scanner.

              Download and execute ESET OnlineScan (on this window, click on ESET Smart Installer to trigger the download). People accessing this URL via Internet Explorer will start the integration process of ESET Online Scanner in their browser;
              Once the installation is done (it requires Admin Rights), check the following settings (two of them are under Advanced Settings, click on it to display them) :

                  Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications;
                  Scan archives;
                  Scan for potentially unsafe applications;
                  Optional : If you want to scan more drives, click on Change... and select the drives you want to include in the scan;

             

              After you're done checking these options, click on Start and ESET Online Scanner will download it's virus signature database before starting the scan;
             

              Once done, the scan will start automatically. Detections will appear at the bottom of the window. ESET Online Scanner can have an extremely long scan time that can last between 2 or 3 hours. So if you start the scan, do not interrupt it, let it complete until the end;
             

              After the scan is finished, a summary window will appear to give you the information about the scan. Then you'll have to the option to see what threads were found and to manage the threats that were quarantined;
             


              Click on List of found threats, it'll display every threat identified during that scan, their type and what action was taken against them. Click on Copy to clipboard to copy these results on our clipboard and post them in your next reply;
             


              Once you're done, click on the Back button;
              Check both checkboxes at the bottom: Uninstall application on close and Delete quarantined files before clicking on the Finish button;

              Hi,

              I'm still unable to run JRT.  I am still getting the popup error: "Could not create file "C:\Users\Tina\AppData\Local\temp\jrt\clean_shortcut.vbs". Access is denied.

              I did an echo of my temp directory and it's normal.  JRT starts creating the file and then stops with the Error.  It actually creates the jrt file and a few other things but then it stops.  I even tried in Safe Mode as Administrator.  I totally uninstalled my Avast Anti virus.


              Malwarebyte Anti Rootkit still won't work either.  And Malwarebytes Adw Cleaner doesn't seem to detect squat.  I use it and I know that I have adware because that's what this trojan/rootkit does.  It bloats my disk to 100%.  When I'm online I can see all of the adware being downloaded in the lower bar of my browsers' windows.  So I had to re-install Super Antispyware in order for it to get rid of it because Malwarebytes Adware Cleaner isn't cutting it. 

              I felt so desperate I ran GMER again and disabled the rootkit.  But once I reboot, it is re-enabled.  I thought I'd try to remove the system file manually, but it comes back with a new name similar to the last one.  I looked in my registry for HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nviat, which is the rootkit registry but it's not apparent.  How could that be?

              I have the rootkit system file disabled now.  But tomorrow morning when I fire up the laptop it will be enabled again. 

              I will do the ESET scan.  Probably not tonight.  Do I have to disable everything again to run it?

              No. ESET will run because it's running from outside your computer.
