So I have a virus on my work computer

And my IT people probably havent rolled out of bed yet.

 

Any tips on getting rid of this myself? Here's the scoop:

I started up my computer today and after a bout 5 minutes it had a box pop up that said something to the effect of "files damaged computer restarting" and it restarted.

 

Then, a rather suspicious looking windows security center warning came up telling me to Download something.. Which of course I didn't, but, it's still here somewhere. I ran my Virus scanner a few times and it's picked up 1 infected file, but even after re-scanning and re-starting, it's still coming up as soon as I start up windows. I'll show you if you want to see it.

 

As im typing this, i have 11 of those red shields that "are" from Windows Security center, each one trying to get me to DL something.

You have virus protection, then? You can try to update it - hopefully that will work.

 

If it does, do this:

Reboot, and right after the initial BIOS Splash Screen (usually the manufacturer, like Dell or Gateway, whatever you have), but before Windows starts to load, start tapping on the F8 key. If it works, you'll get an advancd Boot options screen (if Windows loads, you missed it, so try again). On the advanced Boot options screen, one of your choices will be Safe Mode - boot into that. When you're in Safe Mode (which will look like you have a video card from 1990), run your virsu scan again - hopefully that will help. It's a good place to start at least, and probably what your IT dudes will/would do.

 

Good luck!

Alright, posting from another terminal. I did all that and it's running the virus scanner now.

 

What I thought was weird though, is that the virus that pops up everytime I reboot, still popped up in Safe Mode asking me "YOUR COMPUTER MAY BE AT RISK DOWNLOAD THIS FILE" .. I didn't think viruses could work in safe mode.

It all depends on what a virus needs to be loaded, a lot of viruses need an internet connection and the default safe mode does not load the network stack or network drivers.

 

Your symptoms sound a lot more like spyware than a virus. If you have it try running a scale with adaware or spybot search and destroy. You can download them for free if you do not have either of them.

if this is still going on:

 

windows security center has a fit if youre running norton's antivirus, but doesn't ask you to download fixes via the little bubbles.

 

are you running XP? Vista?

what antivirus software? lemme knowwwwwwwwwww

 

anyway to get a screenshot?

what programs are running in task manager?

If the previous stuff doesn't work: find a program called Hijack This. It's small, download it, reboot your machine into safe mode, and run the program. Post the scan results here. "Do a systemscan and save a log file" It will save the scan results to the hijack this folder wherever you ran the program from. Just look for "hijackthis.log"

I think Gar is right, it sounds more like Spyware.

 

The virus scan came back clean in Safemode, I just DL'd / installed Adaware and it's running now. Found like 144 so far but you know how that goes.

 

Ryee we're on XP here, and the AV is Symantic, or however it's spelled.

 

I'll try and get a SS .. just have to do real work inbetween troubleshooing this =P

i agree with sherd a sherd, whenever you get time (if adaware doesnt resolve it), post your hijack this log.

Symantec corporate AV is pretty air tight, I'd see if they (your IT dept) have a current subscription license/new version etc etc. But post the HijackThis log it should show whats on your computer.

it basically dumps everything your computer has running, including services, startups, and browser helper objects. Is there anything more to your log? seems short..

Thats what pops up every time I start up. I click no, it says are you sure, then i just close it.

 

Then it'll start doing random balloon pop ups by the clock saying stuff like "OMG THIS IS BUSTED DL THIS THING TO FIX IT" Type stuff.

congratulations, this was most likely the culprit.

i checked a couple process databases, and none of them have entries for usdamooj.dll.

 

Don't know where the associated program was, but I'm glad system restore fixed it.
