Solved Infected w Trojan Generic KD virus

Acer / Aspire 5742
April 24, 2012 at 13:53:23
Specs: Windows 7, 2.399 GHz / 5814 MB
I'm running Win 7. I started to have problems loading webpages in Firefox - it would redirect to a screen saying 'Welcome to nginx'. I scanned with Anvi Smart Defender in Safe Mode and it found Trojan.Generic.KD and virus TR I removed the virus's, rebooted in Safe Mode and rescanned. Found one more, deleted through Anvi and rebooted. After rebooting and loading Windows normal mode, it loads Windows but only show a black screen and an empty status bar. No commands work. Pressing Ctrl, Alt and Del brings up a dialogue box that says it can't load security options. The only way to close out is to press the power button and shut off. Now I am back in safe mode and still everything seems to freeze up. I need to use task manager to switch applications. I do have Hijack this and could post a logfile if anyone thinks they could help.

✔ Best Answer
Sure, I will look at a hijack this if you want. My suggestion is to run a Malwarebytes scan if able as well. if you can download it to a usb on another computer. select safemode with command prompt and type start "drive letter of usb":\mbam.exe from the command prompt. then post the log here.

Thanks mikelinus

I have a second computer and I will scan this machine from USB with Malawarebytes and let you know. One strange thing is that the second scan I did with Anvi showed a virus in Adaware - the Lavasoft program. I deleted it through Anvi.

Here's the Hijack This logfile from the scan

I was unable to launch Malawarebytes from a command prompt. The file I downloaded from Malawarebytes was named mbam-setup-1.61.0.1400 Maybe a dumb question, but did you mean that I should first change the name to mbam.exe? I ended up running it from Safe Mode and just prompts to re-install, which I did, then updated, and now it's running. So far it's showing 2 objects detected, but with about 1.5Tb of disk space to scan between my computer and a removable drive, a full scan takes a couple hours. So I'll post the log file here after.

Also, the other machine I'm using is networked to the infected one. Should I close the network...is it possible the virus would affect the connected networked machine also?

Thanks again for your time and consideration

Just to clarify:

mbam-setup-1.61.0.1400.exe is the download.

mbam.exe is the programs exe after installation.

For the future, if either of these will not load due to a virus then change the appropriate .exe extension to either .bat or .com (this is built into the design).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Well I'm not sure what to do next. When I boot Windows normally it goes to a black screen first for several minutes, then it loads the status bar on the black screen, eventually the icons come back to the status bar, and then the desktop, but only folder icons on the desktop show up normal, others, like programs and apps are just a white square box. The computer hangs at this point - the mouse pointer is just the spinning circle hanging. If I try to click on anything it doesn't respond. I left it like this for fifteen minutes to see if it would eventually load fully but it wouldn't. The only way to exit is to turn off the computer with the power button. Then I can reboot to safe mode where I am again now. I'm considering a fresh install if I can't resolve this. Any advice?

Hi again Mike, No I haven't done a partial reinstall, but I'm in the process of backing up all my data to an external drive. I've decided I will do a format and fresh install of Windows 7. This is the kind of thing that I could just end up chasing my tail on, so time to start fresh. So far the external drive comes up clean and I will re-examine it all, from yet a third older computer I Have b4 loading anything back. Thanks for taking the time to help Mike

Sorry that a specific answer wasn't found in the hijack this post, I only found a couple of browser hooks(mbam removed before I could suggest them) that were optional didn't see anything really odd aside from all of the missing files. My guess is that the safe mode that you entered / task manager has been messed with so you are not getting to what you want to. I am wondering if there was a corupted file that got removed thats causeing a failure to load during startup. :-( sorry that you are reformatting, feel free to mark me down. Best of Luck,

Sometimes it is really tricky to solve these issues from afar and for these situations maybe reformat is the neatest way forward. I rather hope nobody gets marked down as folk on here have kept with it and tried their best to get to a solution.

Hey thanks Derek and Mike, you guys have been awesome, this site has been helping me for a long time. Yah I think that somewhere along the way in trying to deal with this on my own I must have somehow messed with the registry or something. And I do think a reformat and reinstall is the cleanest way to go for now. Thanks guys

My PC got infected by Generic.dxlb2qi and the PC performance became very slow. Finally, I searched for the solution Online and came to know about Generic.dxlb2qi
removal tool. The tool worked very well for me. I came to know about it from a forum of microsoft.
