Another Trojan.win32.Alureon!IK Sufferer

Recommended Posts


Same problem different day. Have infected desktop that is running windows XP.

Made the mistake of running A-squared free and using quaratine/delete before I knew what I was against. Have ran the files and attached below. I also have the log from the second run of A-squared that I can attach if you want to look at it.

1st scan showed Trojan.win32.Alureon!IK and Trojan-Downloader.java.Agent!IK

2nd scan did not show the Trojan-Downloader

My system will open explorer and go to ad sites.

It has blocked me from all spyware and malware updates.

It will not allow any spyware or malware sites to be viewed.

Running Win XP Home Version 2002 Service Pack 3

Spyware Doctor Product Version (w/anti virus engine

Emsisoft Anti-Malware 5.0 ( without updates due to blockage )

Thank you for your help.

PS- I have limited experience so please assume very little about anything.

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Save as Combo-Fix.exe during the download. ComboFix must be renamed before you download to your Desktop

Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Save Combo-Fix to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
    See HERE for help
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, ComboFix will produce a log.


1. Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall!

2. Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware before reconnecting to the Internet.


Attach logs for:

  • ComboFix (C:\combofix.txt)
  • EMSI Anti-Malware
  • HiJackFree
  • ISeeYouXP

Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!

I have combo fix on my desktop.

I renamed it to Combo-Fix.exe before saving it.

I start the program and it executes for a minute then nothing happens.

I opened task manager but didn't see anything that looked like it was working in the background.

Is it possible this stupid virus is stopping it's execution?

It has been blocking websites and seems to know where to hide when searched for.

Is there a step I missed?

I shut down firewall. Turned off Spyware doctor and shut down anti-malware 5.0.

I actually downloaded from both links and got the same result.
