Same problem on a friends computer. Trojan Remover worked!!!!
I have been having the same problem with multiple computers. I work in IT and this particular infection is driving me crazy. I first saw it 2 years ago and back then smifraudfix was ll you needed. Quick, simple and easy. This latest one is ridiculous. I have used Spybot S+D, AVG, Smitfraudfix, Super Anti-Spyware and now Trojan Remover wont even run. If anybody has any other possible ideas I would greatly appreciate it. I have run trojan remover in regular and safe modes. THe last time I tried to scan with it I got BSOD. I'm ready to start hitting my head on the keyboard to see if that will help!!!! Thanks in advance.

I am glad to see that I'm not the only one having this problem. I consider myself to be fairly adept when it comes to computers and this has been the first problem of this type that I haven't been able to solve on my own. I will be trying these steps when I get home tonight to see if it fixes my problems.

Thanks in advance to all posters, in particular, Morphine.
The virus was killed by Trojan Remover 675.
thanks Guys.

Attached is the log file

Man... this was bananas.
Had to call a friend at microsoft who told me how to even search for a solution which allowed me to find this site, TR, MBytes, etc...thanks for all the info and heads up.
Everyone should spread the word... most folks have no clue what to do in this situation and given the spread of this issue, I'd assume that it's only going to get worse.
Tell your friends!

-D
Thanks for the help and hints on Trojan remover ! it worked like a charm and everything is fixed now. thought I still wonder how that thing got into my PC, it's for sure a nasty thing.
UMM.. Trojan remover is not working for me at all I dont know if this is a New Version of the "whatever its called Trojan DNS Changer" and im running Trojan Remover AVG and Malware, Malware detects it but will not remove it, Trojan Remover will not detect it and wont remove it so I guess im SOL.
Does everyone at all have this same problem not bein able to remove it.
> PSOUTRAGE
Hey!

To one and all, thank you so very much for helping me fix the inability to get AVG or Microsoft updates.
I too have now had the problem sorted by the Trojan Removal program.

Another thing that happened to our computer was that we couldn't make a restore point, nor could we use any previous restore points! That has also apparently been fixed.
It might be another thing to check on if anyone else has that problem. It may be related??!!
Thanks again people :-)

Hi,

I have the same virus. I got it around the same time everyone else did (in Decemeber). I was able to download the trojan remover. However, I'm not able to install it. When I hit "open" or "run as" it doesn't do anything. The virus is blocking the installation. I had the same problem with a microsoft program. I downloaded microsoft program and burned it to a disk. I tried installing it from the disk and it wouldn't let me install it.

How can I install the trojan remover? Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there somehting I can do manually to allow the installation?

Thanks
Hi! I downloaded the Trojan Remover set-up program (only....did not run the actual set-up) to a thumb drive from another PC, then installed the set-up program on the infected PC and ran it. Found the "Backdoor.TDSS" in about 1 second! Entire scan only took about 3 minutes....GREAT anti-virus program. Hope it works for you, also. Best of Luck to You!
You guys and Trojan Remover saved the day!
I had 1 week of hell, trying to figure this one out and that having 15 years IT knowledge.

This was weird and there is not much info on the www.

BIG THANK YOU!!
Bless you, bless you, bless you for this stroke of insight on Trojan Remover!!!!

It worked! Renaming the installation file worked. The internet is working good now, but I did see a pop or two appear.

Does any one have any idea how they got the virus? My boyfriend thinks he got the virus from redtube.com Did anyone else view this website prior to receiving the virus?
i was up all night trying to kill this thing, with no luck.
every site I wanted to visit it would bring me somewhere else. It was pretty smart I must admit.
I have never been so concerned about viruses but after seeing this I was little annoyed.

thanks to your info. and most of all trojan remover which worked after 2nd try. the first time I ran it was in safe mode, didnt seem to solve the problem, when windows rebooted (normal) I scanned again and all seems to work since I am able to update all virus definitions. Moving to other tools now.
Thanks for the Info Morphine I was having the same problem as most everyone here Trojan Remover worked like a charm. Sure beats reformatting the hard drive. Thanks again
It's been said dozens of times already, but THANKS! Trojan Remover worked like a charm! You guys are the best!

THANKS FOR THE TIPS EVERYONE!!

I had this update blocker too. The Trojan Remover worked perfectly!

Thanks again!

I too have been the victim of this insidious malware. Not even MS's Malicious Software Removal Tool (January 2009) detected it. (Tool downloaded via an uninfected computer on my home network because even access to Microsoft website was consistently redirected to Google's search page). However, Trojan Remover did the trick!

The idiocy of this sort of malware usually takes days to rectify and then only after reinstalling the OS, but the discussion here was invaluable. Saved me heaps of frustration, anger and time.

Thanks guys.
I battled this with little success last week for 3 hours, no info due to my searches being filtered and replaced with related but not results. The PC is in a family household and used for most anything. It started with not doing updates to Windows or the AVG8.0 free edition, I uninstalled and tried a reinstall of AVG and it froze it half way through. When I went to the MS website, it said turn updates on, which I did and soon as it went to download updates, it would turn them off and say turn them on again. The culprit I suspect is the Antivirus 2009 pop up , they mistakenly installed it thinking it was their AV suite saying it, things got worse as well. MS is making a tool and its now in the news to everyone, its being blamed on Ukraine ......go figure. I used the end all solution........... back up and reinstall.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,480857,00.html

This thing is even attempted to crack passwords and spread through networks, over 9 million infected so far. I suspect its something commonly used or through an automatic update of a program, possibly from a hacked site.

My conspiracy theory for it................ the pirates have gone digital !
thanks guys it worked for me ....I spent 5 hours trying to fix and I stumbled upon this fourum... lifesavers
I have been trying to solve this issue with all the known anti spyware/malware/virus programmes known and no luck, same problem, some will not even install.

thanks for the solution! it saved my computer! I dont wish anyone to have the same problem. if anyone knows the source please post it.
I got Trojan remover to install but now it says it's expired?! Any help with this?
Hello. Now I have the same problem. I have tried plenty of different anti-virus software. And yet, unsuccessful. I can tell you, that NOD32, McAfee, Norton, Kaspersky won't find anything. AVG is good, but when you got the infection inside, it is useless. You won't be able to update any of them, not even Malwarebytes or access their websites (e.g. avg.com, symantec.com and so on...). And the "hosts" file has nothing to do with it!
But I have found a solution if you want to be able to update your anti-virus. Is has something to do with "svchost.exe" which can be seen in the task manager (ctrl+alt+dele > Processes). First of all, make a BAT file on your desktop (just make a TXT file and rename it's extension to .BAT). Open it with your right mouse and click edit. Put the following code:
------------------
@echo off
shutdown -a
cls
------------------
and save the file.

Now access the task manager and go to Processes. Start killing all the "svchost.exe" until you have none of them running. This will make a message with a shutdown appear on your screen. Run the BAT file, this will cancel the shutdown. Now when you kill all the "svchost.exe", you will be able to update your anti-virus and go online to avg.com or other.
I also used TROJAN REMOVER and it removed several files and reg entries related to a file called kdwec.exe. When I restarted my computer still had the problem. I re-ran Trojan Remover after turning off the system restore and the computer seems to working properly.
Hi. I agree with you. Trojan Remover helped me as well. It was an awesome ending when I caught all the nasty worms sneaking inside my PC:)) Now the problems gone, thankfully.

Anyone who doesn't have Trojan Remover yet, I advise you to get it.
