:( These three programs keep coming back...

Question: :( These three programs keep coming back...

They're called Error Cleaner, Privacy Protector, and Spyware&Malware protection

But I know they're viruses because pop ups continually come up with them on, and they won't delete... Help please!

Preferred Solution: :( These three programs keep coming back...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: :( These three programs keep coming back...

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new Hijack This log

Unfortunately, I find I need help again. I hope I haven't worn out my welcome here.

I have four programs that look suspicious and would appreciate it if anyone could tell me what they are. The programs are:

csmsn.exe
tstorm.exe
chewcal.exe
cmsnw.exe

All four were created initially at the beginning of October and have no version tab to identify who they belong to.

The first two are in the running processes and they both try to access 63.246.134.50 through port 9901 over tcp. When my firewall asks I block them both and then csmsn.exe hits the firewall every second afterwards, which it's doing right now.

I've deleted all four programs twice before, including the registry keys that say "satin - csmsn.exe" in Local Machine under both "Run" and "Run services". They stay away for several days and then all of a sudden they come back. They all just reappeared again today for the third time.

I run scans with Ad-aware with the latest reference files just about every day as well as Spybot Search and Destroy. I run Norton 2003 AV and also do the Trend Housecall on-line scan quite often as well.

I'm posting my Hijack This log and would appreciate any advice on this subject.

I've been having a a problem with the back left corner hinge since October of last year I poisted to another board about this problem hving been told that this issue would be passed onto support in my region. I'm currious as to weather I'll hear from these people in this lifetime or the next. I enjoy my Laptop and would like to continue using it but as time goes on it keeps seperating more and more and I have to snap it back into place to keep in together. I'm hoping to actually hear back from someone this time that will be able to help me in fixing this issue.

Answer:Back Corner coming from the back left side by the hinge

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.

I already posted in How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8
In this thread after the starting post from Tookeri other updates that had to be deleted were mentioned. I made a list in post 841
I did not have all these updates on the pc but those that were on it I hid.
Some of them came back and I hid them again.
Now today they are back - with some that I had not seen before.

I made an attachment that shows them and also shows that I hid them again

Will I have to check Windows Update for the rest of my live?????

Greetings everyone I need some help.

First off... I have followed all the proceedures listed on the READ ME thread that is asked and I STILL AM HAVING ISSUES.

I have Ad-Aware SE and with the VX add.

I have HiJackThis v1.99 and have followed the steps on that thread as well.

Here is the problem:

I run Ad-Aware everytime I log on, and even in safe mode. It finds beween 8 and 60 items. Mostly Malware and DataMiners. Then once I fix those I rescan and it comes up clean. However, I am still getting pop-ups, I have EnhanceMySearch, and when I log off and log back in... and re-run Ad-Aware I still have 8-60 items that show up and the same problem persists.

Can anyone help and point me in the right direction? It is a major annoyance. THANKS TO EVERYONE IN ADVANCE!!
 

Answer:It all just keeps coming back

Make sure you have HijackThis 1.99 and follow the guidelines on where to install it and how to post a log as an attachment. This is all covered in the sticky thread NO HIJACK THIS LOG FILES BEFORE READING THIS: HJT Tutorial & LOG File Posting

Now post a HijackThis log as an attachment to your message (Do not post the log inline). All running programs should be closed, including your web browser, e-mail. Close before running Hijack This!

To repeat: Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file. Place it in its own folder, for example C:\Program Files\HJT

Hey everyone this is the first time I have posted anything but i am having some serious problems. I let my brother borrow my laptop and when i got it back it was infected bad.
I have pc-cillin, Malwarebytes, and SuperAnti-Spyware.
SuperAnti-Spyware seems to clean everything after i scan and reboot but there are two things that keep coming back on the next re-boot.
1. Pc-cillin keeps giving me a waring telling me to close the browser when its not open with the web address of 110/rjsa/select.php?a=6707a0a cd82d9318fa98c6ee396eed8e61fcf4200553e0c95d8b1d81bbda3c1b&b=1001&c=1
2. There is a sys32 file that gets deleted and always comes back on reboot its MoIXWA40.dll
Pc-Cillin tells me this is a trojan.bho and says its will delete on reboot.
please help me this is so frustrating it slows everything down sooo slow.
 

Answer:Pop-Ups keep coming back

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

I have SAV installed and up to date, I have SpywareGuard installed, I have ran HJT, I've ran Ewido software, nothing can get rid of this - Everytime I clean everything while in Safe mode and reboot, Spywareguard immediately starts popups saying a BHO has been added (suchs as C:\WINDOWS\system32\wvuvspq.dll) - I click remove BHO, and it comes back over and over...

Someone please help - this has totally destroyed my computer...

Answer:It keeps coming back!!!!

Hello sapikest,
my name is Marius and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.
First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.

Before we start, please note:

Please be advised that this free service is typically for home users. We'll help you out this time, but in the future if you are unable to clean a machine via standard methods, then either backup the client's data and rein... Read more

Question: keeps coming back

I keep running scans and it cleans the computer sometimes. I will encounter xp antispyware 2009 and 2008 telling me that my computer is infected. It posts a permanent box on my desktop saying infected and keeps popping up at bottom right by time clock saying infected. I will run anti malwarebytes and it will clean it only if i do quick scan. But then i will run full scan and it freezes so i know it is still infected. And sure enough a few days later it is all back. Please help. I also run cc cleaner and norton but norton freezes too. I have also tried in safemode but still freezes. Thanks Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Question: Keeps coming back!

I thought I wiped it off already but it's back AGAIN! And my SpyBot S&D is missing all sorts of components so it's not working right and it's the only one that has found any. The Microsoft one found one and deleted it but SpyBot found 16 but only deleted 2 before running into problems. EliteBar is back also. Help again!
 

Answer:Keeps coming back!

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT: Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus RemovalMake sure you check version numbers and get all updates.

- Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem:

- Download HijackThis 1.99.1

- Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

- Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file.

- Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

- Run HijackThis and save your log file.

- Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next message. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post).

Answer:they keep coming back!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

I think I may have finally scrubbed enough to keep the dll (IeBHOs.dll) from re-appearing, but the E2G folder keeps recreating itself. Any suggestions?

It's a friends system and had Norton on it. I installed NOD32 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor. Then read a few threads and ran HJT a few times and made some deletions that "may" have helped. I know that I managed to get rid of the TrojanDownLoader-AC2 but this E2G is stubborn.

Also ran SpySweeper many times in safe mode and in non-safe mode. Disables Spyware Doctor from auto load with windows as it seemed to be interefering with the Spy Sweeper scan.

Here's the latest HJT log:

i have run Combofix, it appears to find something and reboot but i am unable to tell by the log what it found.

Oh God help me... these anti-spyware pop ups keeps popping up and i always run a check on ad-aware 6 and Spybot once i see it. But once i connect to the net and open a site, it all comes back again n i haf to scan it all over again.... help please this is real miserable...

Thank you.

Answer:It just keeps coming back...

try manually removing, on www.doxdesk.com there are listings for spyware/parasites.

you could also go to run > msconfig and deselect any programs starting up that you dont recoginse.

also try going to http://www.symantec.com/homecomputing/
at the bottom is a link to a free online virus check, you may have one that persistantly downloads spyware.

and finally ensure you have a firewall and if you have one make sure its up to date. www.download.com has a free copy of zonealarm, thats a good one

I think I may have finally scrubbed enough to keep the dll (IeBHOs.dll) from re-appearing, but the E2G folder keeps recreating itself. Any suggestions?

It's a friends system and had Norton on it. I installed NOD32 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor. Then read a few threads and ran HJT a few times and made some deletions that "may" have helped. I know that I managed to get rid of the TrojanDownLoader-AC2 but this E2G is stubborn.

Also ran SpySweeper many times in safe mode and in non-safe mode. Disables Spyware Doctor from auto load with windows as it seemed to be interefering with the Spy Sweeper scan.

Hello
For many years a succeeded in keeping my computers safe - then, not even a month ago, something surfaced. A Virut thing after I visited an insecure site.
If this can help, a few days before I had for the first time in my pc life installed a downloader program called Flashget-
Well I tried at first to clean up with Spybot and Spyware Doctor (who had not by the way intercepted the hostile item). But the machine had still a strange behaviour so I downloaded some Linux based Rescue CD .iso files (Kaspersky, BitDefender, WebDoctor), burned the CDs and went on scanning without Windows. Those found a wealth of infections by Trojans as well as by the Virut thing, so I kept cleaning and cleaning (desinfecting and/or deleting that is) until nothing more was found.
I then restarted Windows, uninstalled Flashget and installed Avast antivirus. Unfortunately when using my browser I started to get redirected to a "stolnik.net" whatever search I did. Plus Avast began to show infections spreading in the system by a "W32.Vitro" virus. So I tried again with the rescue CDs - Kaspersky found a couple issues but nothing else - and Avast still claiming I have the W32.Vitro everywhere.
At this point I used the VirutCF removal tool by Norton, but to no avail - there is no Virut infection in the machine.
I was beginning to get nervous so I downloaded the Combofix tool, disabled all and every anti-virus and -spyware - as requested - and tried to start Combofix: nothing happens... Read more

Answer:They keep coming back

If you truley have Virut the only real alternative is to do a complete wipe and reinstall. See boopme's post here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...t&p=1260380That will help you determine if you have virut, and if you do, what you need to do.

I was attacked by spyware a month or so ago, I was able to remove most of it on my own using AVG anti-spyware, killbox, hijack this, and some registry fixes. I am currently using AVG to guard my system, but some of the problems keep coming back again and again. Namely, tiny.id (xoasonqc.exe in the system32 folder) and trojan.agent.aoy (tnypwspg.exe) also, hjy.dll and gebyawv.dll which is particularly irritating, as AVG pops up that it finds it at least twice every boot up. Right now, I have been quarantee-ing the files as it seems when I set to "permanently remove" they came back quicker. In the infections log of AVG, gebyawv is listed at least twenty times. Since the attack I have noticed other quirks such as pages not loading correctly in Netscape 9, seemingly slower operation when launching programs (some perhaps due to system resources taken up by AVG and A squared which now run in background). Please let me know if I can completely elimate this problems and restore my system to it's former operating conditions.

My computer now boots up but the Userinit registry value is always changed after reboot. I used Spy Sweeper 5.5 and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.35. Upon startup Anti-Malware 1.35 detects the server.exe spyware and then deletes it and after a restart it is back.

Hello.You have a nasty infection on board. One of them includes a backdoor.Backdoor ThreatIMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunatly One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

It started with the AntiVirus 2009 pop-in the new firefox tab. So, I installed Malwarebytes and ran the test. It found a bunch of stuff, deleted it, but it all comes back within a day. If I run Malwarebytes again, it finds it, deletes it, but it keeps coming back.

I installed and ran SDFix, but upon reboot it hangs on the finishing. Also, now I get rundll errors upon startup due to this.

Please help! Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide! Here is my Hijack log:

Here's my log. I've tried Spybot, Spyhunter, Norton Anti-virus. I've tried deleting folders I KNOW to be junk, ended processes one by one in hopes of finding the culprit of my laptop's slowness. Also, google and yahoo are doing this funny thing where the first 20 links at the top of the page come before any search results. Is this also not supposed to happen?

Greetings all.
 
I have been struggling with Malware for most of the past day and am in need of some advice.
Malwarebytes has been run and deletes a bunch of files in safe mode, including svchost.exe.
After restart, it continually find and quarantines svchost.exe.  In other words, svchost.exe is coming back endlessly, and MalwareBytes keeps removing it.  The removal message pops up from the systray every 5 seconds (not kidding). 
There is also an issue sometimes when I click a link, I'm sent to some other site.  I think I see "seachzone" in the url briefly before the reroute.  Guessing these are separate issues.
 
Have run AVG, Nortons and Spybot S&D (which always freezes before finishing), but nothing has fixed this issue.
 
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
 
Thanks.

Hello. I first found Vundo on Saturday, April 11. I left my email client (Thunderbird) open for a few hours and came back to loads of popups. I tried calling Microsoft, and they assisted me with removal - or so I thought. Afterwards, I installed every Windows update, bought and installed Trend Micro's Internet Security Pro, and started scanning with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware twice a day, at least. Every day since then I have found instances of Vundo (depending on which I use first, my Antivirus or MBAM). Each day it has a different name, too. It started out with Vundo.H, then Vundo.HGO, and today, I have Vundo.V. Finally, last night I ran a Kaspersky scan, and it found two files that I had never seen mentioned before - a trojan-downloader.Win32.fraudload.edj and packed.win32.Mondera.c. I can't locate these files, and neither can any of the other programs. Here are the requested files: DDS.txt and my Kaspersky log (041609KOS.txt), and the Attach.txt file.

Hello,
Yesterday my computer started acting up. It said that the Windows firewall was turned off (even though I didn't turn it off) and now it's saying automatic updates has been turned off (even though it's turned on). I've scanned the computer with ad-aware, AVG and my Norton antivirus. I've removed trojans at least three times. However, random IE windows keep popping up with fake antivirus dialog boxes. I'm not sure what else to do. Below is the HJT log. Thank in advance.

Hello. I need some help. My parents' computer is running Windows XP and has persistent alerts from AVG saying that multiple threats are detected. It removes them and a little while later they are back again. The file c:\tdlcmd.dll keeps showing up. svchost shows as an infected process sometimes. I ran a Malwarebytes scan and it detected 20 threats, removed them, then the next day they were back again. AVG also identifies these threats as Trojan Horses in the Vundo family. Nothing seems to be able to permanently remove this virus. After some research on forums it seems that the only thing that works is when someone who is very skilled reads a logfile (usually OTL, Combofix, or Hijackthis) and gives the OP instructions specific to the infected machine. I really wish I knew enough about this process to do it myself, but as it is, I need help. I've read the forum rules so I'm posting a Hijackthis log that I ran on my parents' computer via TightVNC. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Answer:FAXS COMING BACK TO MYSELF

The simple answer is that you can't use fax wizard to send faxes via broadband. Fax is analogue, broadband uses digital technology. You will need to retain your dial up modem for fax transmissio, There is software available to sent faxes via the web but I understand this can be a costly option as it is usually by subscription.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 Pentium 4 3.0 GHz with 3GB of RAM running WXP Pro sp3. I have uninstalled mIRC twice. The first time I thought I had solved the problem. The problem (a sound stuttering problem that sounds like a key is stuck) came back, so I looked for every other cause, and then discovered that mIRC was back. I booted into safe mode and uninstalled it again using jv 16 power tools 2009. When I restarted, it was back again. Now I'm thinking it must be some type of malware.

Several months ago I had conduit take over my browsers and install toolbars, etc. I worked through removal instructions I found online and succeeded in removing the toolbar and search hijack, and thought it was gone forever but it keeps coming back. The only symptom now is that Explorer will start using around 25% of the CPU activity, which keeps my cooling fan running, and will not allow the computer to hibernate. It also may be interfering with Flash on Facebook and some other websites, but I'm not sure about that.
 
The only way I know that this is Conduit is that when I notice the activity starting up I run MalwareBytes and it finds a Conduit file, even though I have repeatedly cleaned using that program.
 
In your forums I found someone talking about ImgBurn installing Conduit, and I did have the program, so I have uninstalled it. Also I have Secunia PSI, so it was regularly updating ImgBurn without my being able to deselect any Conduit option, so that may have been the source of the problem, but I have uninstalled ImgBurn and cleaned with MalwareBytes and Explorer is still running the CPU at about 25%.
 
Help please.

Answer:Conduit keeps coming back?

As a quick follow-up, I have just run ADWCleaner and it found a bunch of stuff related to Conduit, all of which I had it clean. And now Explorer is no longer running at 25% CPU in the Task Manager. So maybe it's gone, but I've thought it was gone before.

So about a year ago I was getting consistent bsods, apparently caused by a conflict between my graphics card and the intel graphics. That got solved by setting my computer to only use the nvidia card and not switch between them. Fast forward to now, after many months and a few updates for both the nvidia and intel chip, no problems until last night when that same bsod happened again. Driver power state failure, bug check code 0x9F, while my computer was on battery power saving mode (it's usually on high performance). Can anyone please shed some light on this ?

Everytime I go to safe mode and get rid of things like viruses (Spybot - Search & Destroy), the virus comes back on the next reboot back into normal Windows. The virus I am trying to get rid of is preventing me from playing WoW, so it must be removed ASAP. Lol.

My virus software is pcguard from virgin active.At first pcguard find 50 viruses and deleted them but I would run the scan again it would find the same 50 viruses.Disabling the system restore function cut them down to 13 viruses. I have now run a viruse scan in safe mode and I have found six viruses. Worm.win32.autorun.aam,
worm.win32.autorun.dej
backdoor.win32.small.czo

Help! I use Security Task Manager and every time I connect on the internet, a fake 'svchost.exe' is being downloaded in "C:\WINDOWS\security." There are also a "kakijigu.dll" and "makezimu.dll" that appear in Security Task Manager. I use Avast and Malwarebytes but since I got this problem, I cannot update Avast, even by downloading the update through "avast.com" and Malwarebytes virus database is being deleted after I detect and remove some virus.

Another problem is that when I switch my modem on(I use a modem for wireless connection) and the fake "svchost.exe" is running, I get and error message on the "svchost.exe" and I cannot connect to the internet, I cannot open any program and the theme changes to Windows Classic.

Hi, I have completed steps 1 thru 6 of READ & RUN ME FIRST several times, but no luck so far. Virtumondo keeps coming back.

1) In normal mode, only MS Antispyware caught it.
2) Switched to safe mode with networking support:
- Ad Aware caught it and confirmed deletion.
- MS Antispyware caught it again and confirmed deletion.
3) Rebooted again to normal mode and Virtumondo is back.
4) Repeated 1 - 6 in safe mode again, but Virtumondo is back again.

This awvvt.dll file keeps coming up as a malware by MS Antispyware, but I'm afraid to delete it manually without some expert guidance.

Can you please help? I have only been able to retrieve the MS Antispyware log, which is listed first below and followed by the HJT log.

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I delete entries such as:

I get on the web again afterwards, and this spyware is back.

Does anyone know to fix this completely?

Hi. I have spent most of the past week trying to rid my computer of spyware and adware. Apparently DH clicked on something he shouldn't have, and opened the door to lots of unwelcome guests. I have Spybot now, and pop-ups are fewer, but not gone. Still can't get rid of new toolbar just for searches. I have tweaked the registry some, following various advice on forums found by searching Google. I have WinTasks Pro. Here is my new Hijack This log. I see many more BHOs than I would have thought, since my activity. Apparently they regenerate on their own!

Ok I have ran both Ad-Aware and Spybot on a cutsomer's PC. I got everything off, or so it looked like. I reboot and there is about 40 instances of adware/spyware that come right back. Mostly seems to be CoolWWWsearch. It repopulates the "hosts" file also. Then I rebooted and ran both Ad-Aware and Spybot again in safe mode. Ran CWShredder, Cleaned the "hosts" file, and cleaned out all the TEMP directories. Everything checks out in safe mode but when I boot into regualr mode, open IE, and run the spyware removal tools it is right back. Also the "hosts" file keeps getting junked up with bad addresses. I clear them out, save the file, reopen it and they are right back! Here is my HijackThis log and also the "hosts" file showing what keeps repopulating it. Thanks...

Hey, so i've gotten this malware and i know what program caused it but i deleted it and have no clue now, sorry :/ But the main issue is, as i said i cleaned it with Adwcleaner and it finds it and removes it (I'm certain that's it but when i restart chrome it "re-installs" itself. Also I've used FRST but i don't know how useful it will be as i'm puzzled whether it worked or not Now enough from the cryptic talk.

it's under
C:\Users\my user\Appdata\local\google\chrome\user data\default\secure preferences
inside the file (opened with notepad++)
this is the culprit:
plnkhmnoajbfccclonaeepohggeolcih (more details in uploaded logs)
Also, over time due to the popups it also installs some random tinytask thing + uk.ask.com or whatever search provider (also in logs)
Now, as i mentioned above i've checked installed programs and services and found nothing out of the place. I have no clue how the hell should i go about fixing this as its a nasty malware that doesnt wanna get removed. The only sites i found relating to this issue are spanish and the forums even with translate didnt help much so i'm here to ask for some help! Thanks for anything in advance

Seems to be some kind of browser hijacker/adware?
 
It came down with some free dvd converter software. I am always super careful and untick all the extras that usually get installed but somehow it got through anyway.
 
It has taken on several different guises, some more obtrusive than others, but always ad based. The worst would cover any website visited in ads preventing internet use.
Currently it is 'ads by couponing' which is over-riding google search results.
 
I've tried malwarebytes, adwcleaner, tdsskiller and hitmanpro. usually hitman pro will find a bunch or results and remove them but as soon as i restart the pc or re-open Chrome it is back.
I've removed all extensions from Chrome (there used to be an ad extension that would show but now it is completely empty). I've also reset chrome to factory defaults (as well as IE although I don't use it).
there is nothing in the uninstall program list that I am suss about,
 
Any help gratefully appreciated!

Need help removing this process... and yes, I know the dif between it and the legit svchost

Within Task Manager, a svchost.exe process keeps generating with a description of 'winrscmde' instead of Host Process For Windows Services. It was sucking up 600k of my RAM and my internet speed went to pot. My BullGuard firewall log shows that process is sending massive traffic out to misc sites. I've blocked it via the firewall and have tried at least a dozen times to remove it via Malwarebytes (it finds it, IDs it as a Trojan) but it comes back every time I tell it to delete it (and after the subsequent restart). I've even tried it in Safe Mode with the same results. My BullGuard AV portion doesn't even find it.

I've tried to System Restore to a prior point, but it's still there. I've also tried to physically delete the file it specifies in c:\windows. No joy - it returns after reboot.

Here is the log that a Malwarebytes quick scan produces after I tell it to remove the Trojan.

Answer:hotsearchbar keeps coming back. Please Help

Welcome to TSF.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key until menu shows up. In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Make sure to close any open browsers. Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

Re: elite keeps coming back

I'm stuck in the same trap, but I can't get EliteToolbar Remover v.1.0 to function in my Win XPS2 (I get a DOS 16 bit error message in Windows, ignore it, and after confirming the deletes in the DOS window it still pops up on Spybot running in memory--so it can't be cleared, even with the Spybot run on startup).

Answer:EliteToolbar keeps coming back

Re: elite keeps coming back

I gave you your own thread!

Make sure you have HijackThis 1.99 and follow the guidelines on where to install it and how to post a log as an attachment. This is all covered in the sticky thread NO HIJACK THIS LOG FILES BEFORE READING THIS: HJT Tutorial & LOG File Posting

Now post a HijackThis log as an attachment to your message (Do not post the log inline). All running programs should be closed, including your web browser, e-mail. Close before running Hijack This!

To repeat: Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the downloaded ZIP file. Place it in its own folder, for example C:\Program Files\HJT

A few days ago, I changed my processor from an E4500 to a Xeon E3110. I did not change anything else at all. I did not install any programs either. I didn't even change the heatsink. All I did was replace my processor.

The computer works perfectly, except for one annoying thing. The computer goes to sleep just fine. When I press a button or move my mouse, the computer turns on, but my screen is blank. The only thing I can do to access the computer at that point is press the power button till the computer turns off, and then I turn it back on.

The Hibernate option works just fine, however, I am too used to the sleep button. I thought I could ask someone here for any advice before I reinstall windows, because frankly, that's the only thing I can think of at this point.

I would very much appreciate any help/advice you can give me. Also, I am somewhat of a beginner - please speak in English


Thank you very much for your time

I ran Pest patrol & it found WinPup32. I delete it & it doesn't show up on the next scan, but as soon as I reboot it reappears. It shows up in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\pup. I ran hijack this & here's what the log says. Can anyone help me figure out how to get rid of this thing for good? How does it keep appearing after its been deleted? thanks in advance.

Attached are logs. This client keeps getting viruses, and I clean up with malwarebytes and avira. After a day or two things start to pop back up again. I don't think I'm cleaning it effectively. Attached are logs. There are a couple of mbam and SAS logs since I ran them before following the removal guide. Also attached is an avira log.

FYI there is a file "DeltekAdvantage" that Avira is flagging as a virus. This is an old piece of software the client used to use. It's highly unlikely that it is a virus.

I noticed that rootkit reveal found some hidden files with randomly generated names, so I suspect there is still a virus.
 

Answer:xp viruses keep coming back

Attached are more logs, including the initial mbam and sas runs.

I keep getting pop-ups without even opening IE. Only Outlook running and wham...another window opens up. (This is the address, if you care: http://69.20.62.53/yyy2.html)

Adaware comes up with nothing,
cwshedder is clean,
spybot finds something everytime it runs. I'll fix everything, restart, run spybot again, and it finds more stuff.

I also have stange programs trying to connect to the internet after I restart. I don't allow them w/Zonealarm.

What up?

I posted last week about Cool Web returning over and overagain. I managed to get rid of it, for a while. My son used my computer for something and somehow got LYCOS loaded. Very big pain to get rid of. Now Cool Web keeps returning, and I haven't been able to get rid of iot. CW Shredder removes it, ad aware removes it and Spy Bot removes it, but it comes back. I ran a scal this morning and cleaned evrything up, then ran another Hijack this and I'm pretty sure it's back. Could someone take a look please.

A couple of weeks ago when I started my computer (Windows XP Pro) a popup appeared, without me going on the internet. In the title bar it said http:// morze . cafreedom . com, and the popup was saying I might have spyware and to click a link to begin scanning - as if I'd click it!Anyway I ran Ad-Aware and it found a few items, but the one that stood out was VX2 and was categorised as MalWare. It couldn't delete the file vgz.dll, so I had to delete it via the command prompt. Doing this closed all Explorer and Internet Explorer windows, which presumably is because it was running/using Explorer. It actually restarted explorer completely, so everything disappeared for a moment.Having got rid of it, I had no problems... until the next time. It keeps coming back, sometimes when I'm logged on, other times when I've restarted... I can't see when it's coming back - just seems random.I haven't been on any dodgy sites, so I can only assume that there's another file other than vgz.dll still on my hard disk somewhere that Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG won't detect.Any ideas?Thanks in advance,Gary

Answer:It keeps coming back!what am i doing wrong

Let's use a program to scan for any trojans that may exist. Download TDS-3. Learn how to use it here. Make sure to update it after you installed it. You can get the manual updates here. When you launch the program, it will scan your memory for running processes. This will take less than 30 seconds. Next go to System Testing on the menu and choose Full System Scan. After that's finished, post the log file by selecting everything on the top pane (select from bottom to top).
