So far, we've tried McAfee, AVG (Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, and Anti-rootkit), Housecall, Spybot (which the gremlin actually interfered with the function of), and the anti-spyware scanner that goes with AOL. They all find things, and at least try to remove them, but the problem persists. Any time we open a browser window, unrequested browser windows will open up and go to some random site. Even when mail programs are running, it will occasionally bring up browser windows. McAfee blocks repeated attempts to change the trusted sites list. Both Internet Explorer and Firefox are affected. Two sites that the gremlin tries to get the computer to go to are ones referencing WinAntiVirus and DriveCleaner.

Hi,

Got a persistant gremlin

Well, you're dealing with A LOT of gremlins :(

Perform next instructions in the right order..

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xzthabd] C:\WINDOWS\system32\feruda.exe r
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ygslrwv] C:\WINDOWS\system32\oxvbmzo.exe r

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [adyhxdq] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ctgltg.exe r
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wyljhvq] C:\WINDOWS\system32\pgqxabe.exe r
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [chlhtr] C:\WINDOWS\system32\sgfcjmj.exe r

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Xgsxb] "C:\Program Files\S?mantec\n?tepad.exe"
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.drivecleaner.com (HKLM)
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.errorprotector.com (HKLM)
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.imageservr.com (HKLM)
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.imagesrvr.com (HKLM)
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.systemdoctor.com (HKLM)
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.winantivirus.com (HKLM)
O23 - Service: Wanmdanim - America Online, Inc. - (no file)


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

then, * Download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.
Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.
