Windows 7: Help with goingonearth virus please


17 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit + Windows 7 32 bit
 
 

So...
Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper search found four threats and fixed them, but the goingonearth is still there...

Don't know if it is related, but I've also been getting an error-message from apple everytime I log on my computer (I use iTunes). Is says that sqlite3_wal_checkpoint doesn't work (don't remember the exact message).

Hello there.

Download, install & update Malwarebytes & SuperAntiSpyware, then do a full scan with both.
In addition to that, do a thorough scan with your resident AntiVirus. Mark anything found for removal.

I have also tried to use both of the above + Spybot, Spyware doctor and Avast in safe mode (in addision to in regular mode). And I have scanned with Avast on startup (before windows starts), but still no cigar.

A friend of mine recomended deleting some dll-files, but I don't want to do that without being certain that I delete the right ones...

Nobody who knows how to fix this?
I miss my desktop...
Try to use it as little as possible while it is infected.

I've heard that this thing is not possible to remove by using regular software, but noone seems to know what to do. Have been struggling with this for nearly two weeks now. I am desperate to get a solution that doesn't involve formating and reinstalling...

You could try Norton Power Eraser: Note, you will need an active net connection to use this tool.

Norton Rescue Tools

Quote:
Because Norton Power Eraser uses aggressive methods to detect threats, there is a risk that it can select some legitimate programs for removal. You should use this tool very carefully.
If you have a question about a file to be removed this tool will allow you to make a restore point and submit suspicious items for further analysis. A rootkit scan can also be done with this tool.

You may wish to try a boot AV disk

Kaspersky has been causing BSOD's as of late, so you may with to give the others a try first.

Here is a link with information about manually removing it:

Also, Here is the link to Hitman Pro that MaxPayne suggested:

Hi,

This is a thread about the same threat :

Going on Earth Malware!

Can you explain better what you mean by "it is still there"? Do you mean:

1. Anti-virus products still find it?, or
2. You still get re-directed to their site?

If its the latter, then a flushing of the DNS might be all that is required, but lets see your answers to the questions first.

Regards,
Golden

I originally posted my question in the other thread, but as I had other problems to begin with someone made new threads for me.

By "is still there" I mean I still get redirected.
I forgot to mention that I also get the error message "activate windows security center". Has been the same since I started getting redirected.

Hitman pro and Norton rescue tools didn't find anything.

About this one, Goingonearth.com - how to remove , do I remove the files in safe mode and in processes? Sorry if I ask stupid questions, but I'm norwegian so I don't understand all the technical references in english. :P


I looked at the dll's listed to remove, but couldn't find any of them on my computer...

Looks like my options are running out...
I now have gone trough every suggested solution again, but I still get redirected and I still get flagged wit the error "activate windows security center".

Giving it a few hours until a full re-installation begins...
