Preferred Solution: folder keeps 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: folder keeps coming back

Welcome to Major Geeks. We really could use some information here. Please post the name of the folder, the folder's path/directory, which version of Windows you're running, etc...
Thanks!

There is a folder on my desktop that just won't go away. I deleted it and then emptied it from the recycling bin. Then like 20 min later it just reappears on the desktop. Someone suggested i use a program called unlocker but that doesn't work either. How do i go about getting rid of this folder? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Deleted folder keeps coming back

Hi -

Try a single-delete via cmd/DOS prompt - 1st I need to see the file name & attributes
START | type cmd.exe | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd/DOS screen appears - paste this in (to paste, right-click at top of DOS screen, select Edit, select Paste):


Code:
dir "%userprofile%\desktop\*.*" /a /q /r /s > %temp%\d1.txt & start notepad %temp%\d1.txt
A notepad will open - paste the contents into your next post.

Regards. . .

hello to you all

my friend has a little problem with his vista.

he says that he have audio folders or any other folders
where he remove all the unnecessary folder tags such as:
"artits", "size" and all the other.

he says that after he remove the tags and restart or log off, it keeps coming back.

I had a problem where thumbnails and preview options such as: large icons or small icons settings would not save.
i followed an article called "Windows Explorer Folder View settings"
which did helped for my issue.
i was wondering if there is such a manual for the tags problem or if the above article
that helped me could maybe help my friend's vista?

Thanks

Firstly, I am new to this website and to the forum and I am fully certain of where to put this thread so I just created this thread here. Sorry for any problems.

Right, I have been having this problem for awhile.

Awhile back I downloaded Utorrent to download songs. At one point I downloaded 2 albums from a band called Tenacious D and this appeared in MY DOWNLOADS folder and the mp3 files didn't work so I decided to delete the folder itself with all the mp3 files in it. The next day I turned on my computer and the folder was on my desktop and the folder contains 2 other folders which are the album folders but they don't contain of anything either. There's no signs of mp3 files.

I keep deleting this file but it always comes back when I restart my computer or log off. I tried uninstalling Utorrent before and deleting it but it still keeps coming back and I have tried deleting the file on safe mode and still the same results.

How do I solve this problem?

Ok so Symantec keeps picking up a huge group of viruses in my temp folder even after it quarantines them they keep popping back up again. I even tried going in manually and deleting them but they keep regenerating. I tried running ccleaner, antimelwarebyte, and spybot and none of them pick up these viruses except Symantec. It’s really annoying and I don’t know what to do, it’s making my computer run really slow. Can someone tell me step by step what to do? Thanks so much!

Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me.  I have a Lenovo x120E thinkpad running windows 7.  A week back, MSE picked up a trojan threat and I quarantined it in response.  Subsequently, about a day or so later, I noticed my desktop had changed and the start menu was the older XP style logo.  I thought it was some update from windows and was so focused on my work that I ignored it.  
 
As my computer slowed, I decided to restore to a setting prior to the desktop change, and sure enough, the desktop went back to normal.  as I started looking for things that did not belong on my PC, I found the file C:\programdata\pcDR.  when i tried deleting it, it immediately pretended to delete but made the changes that caused the desktop to change.  I then knew I was infected, redid my system restore.  this time rather than delete the file in window, i went to the command prompt to delete the directory.  it said could not because I did not have admin rights (it is my PC and I am the only user and administrator).  so i had to "takeown", which I did and deleted the file.  Upon googling all the details, I found several threads on here of others who have had the same problem and have used just about everyone of the malware programs that have been listed...combofix, antiroot kit, JRT, etc.  the problem is the folder keeps coming back each day around 3PM...whether I am using the machine or not.  I have gone through the regi...

2 registered viruses (according to avira) were found initially in the temporary java cache folder, so after that, I removed them with Avira, and set java not to accept temporary files, in its usual "C:\Documents and Settings\ username>\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\" directory.Now, even though this Java directory above is clear, I find 2 files with the exact same "jar_cache" numbers now in the paths below. I initially thought that Avira moved them here: Begin scan in 'C:\' Windows XP>C:\Documents and Settings\Alexander\Local Settings\Temp\jar_cache3228428661962348376.tmp[0] Archive type: ZIP [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virus--> bpac/a.class [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virusC:\Documents and Settings\Alexander\Local Settings\Temp\jar_cache6153414522020360556.tmp[0] Archive type: ZIP [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virus--> bpac/a.class [DETECTION] Contains recognition pattern of the JAVA/OpenConnect.CF Java virusI can of course remove them again, but what I am wondering is, if it is safe to remove delete absolutely all content from this Local Settings\Temp\ folder, and secondly, why I am receiving the same files yet again in different directories (user temp folder instead of temp java deployment folder)- if Avira is likely to be reporting false positives (the program is set to its normal protective mode). thanks

Answer:virus keeps coming back from java cache folder?

You could try CCleaner with the third party CCEnhancer add on.I'm sure CCEnhancer has a Java Cache clearout option.

Hello everyone,
I researched this a lot, both here and elsewhere, before asking about this. The solutions either didn't work or didn't seem to apply to my situation so I decided it was time to join and ask about it.

Specifically - the folder is from one of several CDs that I ripped so I could put the music on my MP3 player. I used Windows Media Player and had it put the folders it created on the desktop, then I moved those to the player, put copies on my hard drive and the external hard drive that I use for backups, and deleted the ones on the desktop. But one of them won't stay deleted. Here's what I've tried:

- renaming it and deleting it
- moving it to another folder and deleting it from there
- deleting it using the CMD prompt, with both its full name and the short version (sorry, I don't remember where I got the info to do that), using both DEL and RMDIR
- deleting it using the CMD prompt by dragging the folder to the CMD window (that didn't work, I think there was a syntax error)
- shredding it from the desktop using my antivirus, AVG
- booting to Puppy Linux, which I have on a flash drive, and deleting it in Linux

And of course emptying the Recycle Bin after every attempt. But for some reason the folder keeps reappearing, not right away but later on. I haven't really tracked this but it seems to be just two or three days. It'll be gone for a while and then - it's back.

In reading another thread here just now I began to wonder if maybe this had something to do with ... Read more

Answer:Folder deleted from desktop keeps coming back - days later

Hi,

I don't use WMP but a quick search suggests:

Windows Media Player

To set up the ripper, select "Tools," then "Settings" and then finally click the "Rip Music" tab. The ?Rip Music to This Location? section of the window will show where your ripped files will end up. It?s probably in ?My Music.? You can either leave it there; change it to another folder or save it to your ?Desktop? for quick access.

If you set the folder location to your desktop as shown above it could cause the folder to reappear when you run WMP.

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.

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?????

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.

Hello EBurritt, I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. Disable your antivirus program and go here http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html and run an online scan with BitDefender (you will need to use Internet Explorer for this scan).

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).

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:

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:

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

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'm the kind of person who just needs to turn UAC off.  It's a great idea for the vast majority of regular users, though, so I'm not canning it, just asking some questions on how to actually turn it off so that it stays off.I'm using Windows 7 x64 on a laptop that's just on its own, no domain, no group policy etc.Anyway, I've got my UAC slider all the way down the bottom (and have rebooted), yet I still need to explicitly right-click and choose "Run as Administrator" if I need to run something as an administrator.  (for example the command prompt, if I want to run "chkdsk c: /f" or "pskill explorer.exe" or use ProcessExplorer and look at the threads in system processes or whatever.)  The thing is I want to run most of my stuff as administrator without the need to right-click each time.  Just take a look at some of the crazy problems I see and need to work with: http://users.on.net/~MRIS/Problem_20090207_0701.mhtI know that I can tick "run as administrator" in the advanced tab for the shortcut that launches these as a work-around but I want it for all my sysinternals utilities, and there's lots of them.  I'm also sick of clicking "show for all users" in things like task manager when I launch it via CTRL-SHIFT-ESC. There's a Group Policy setting in the registry named:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\EnableLUAThat I think is responsible.However it always comes back and gets set...

i think it is still infected because if i run CF again, it says it needs to reboot to continue.

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.

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.

This is my second attempt at help. I failed my first time and after reading the preparation guide here I am. I tried fixing it myself and loading MBAM and it says I have an infected regestry value, (Trojan.Agent) When I run the MBAM it says my computer must reboot to fix. It does, but then I have the same infection. I am confused, frustrated, and not really sure now what I am doing. Thankfully there are those here that can help...I am humbled.

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.

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

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:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

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. Disabled Spyware Doctor from auto load with windows as it seemed to be interefering with the Spy Sweeper scan.

Here's the latest HJT log:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Hi all, I'm at wit's end. My laptop (a Toshiba running XP) has one of the worst virus infections I've ever had to deal with. After at least 12 hours of researching, cleaning, rebooting, configuring and trying MalwareBytes, VIPRERESCUE, CrapCleaner, Spybot, BitDefender, and OTM by Oldtimer...the virus is still not gone.

I do know that I had several trojans, RootKit, Windows Antivirus Pro, and Protection System. MalawareBytes keeps finding threats and removing them every time I scan, but says that to completely remove all the files I have to reboot...and then the viruses apparently reinstall themselves upon rebooting. Immediately after rebooting I run another scan and it finds new files.

The problem HAS lessened, but I am still getting the Windows Antivirus Pro-type fake security warnings. The Protection System and Antivirus Pro files and folders are gone, but obviously something still remains because it hasn't stopped yet.

Protection System tried to add an entry to the registry before I closed for the last reboot, after it was 'wiped' by MalwareBytes, but Spybot caught it and I disallowed the change to the registry.

Could someone PLEASE help me finally root out where this thing is hiding so I can finally get rid of it for good?

Answer:Wiping it over and over and still coming back...HELP

Not sure why this was moved...I KNOW I'm infected, and with what...I just need help to get rid of it?!

I did run RootRepeal, and while I haven't taken any action yet, it found a hidden file in the system32\drivers folder called "hjgruitvogodyi.sys". It's in red in the list on RootRepeal, which makes me think it's a BAD thing...but I'm afraid to remove it without some kind of direction from someone who knows this stuff better than I do...

On Startup there is a program, spyware i guess, that is called jzppenc.exe in the process manager. All it does is create an ad on the homepage and a popup to come up when ever i go on IE. I just end in the the process manager and it doesnt come back till next startup. Whenever i take it out of the startup it comes back, same with deleting it from the regestry startup. Anyone hear of it or know what to do. I also cannot find it in C:\ where it says it is.

Yesterday my boyfriends computer started acting up out of no where. It'll randomly lag really bad, about every 5 minutes or so. We've narrowed the problem down to some sort of spyware that's related to Alfacleaner. He'll delete Alfacleaner, but then when the computer lags again, it comes back. I've searched everywhere and followed a bunch of different instructions (such as running Ad-aware, SpyBot, and HijackThis) and can't seem to find a way to fix it. He's even used system restore and the problem still hasn't been solved. He's using Windows XP Professional. Any help will be greatly apprecaiated.

I have some sort of malware or virus on my computer. My computer is:
Dell Mini XP Home Edition Version 2002, Service Pack 3, CPU 1.60 GHz, 0.99 GB Ram
I connect to the internet wirelessly.

I have run Avast! scans which found and removed several items. I have used Ad-Aware to remove some items. I have also used CCleaner that removed items. However, the main problem keeps re-occuring. Several times it appeared to be gone, but always came back within one day. It does not appear to matter which websites I visit.

The main symptom:
Websites that I normally go to take more time to do anything, and then a big browser screen with some ad pops up full screen in front. This happens in both IE7 and Firefox. These are sites I am accustomed to go to and have visited daily for months and am fairly aware of their performance on this machine. Some of these sites do not work at all, until I kill some other process. However, there is really nothing extra that is normally running, so I end up killing the Avast! On-Access scanner.
Also when I try to install Malwarebytes, the main mbam.exe is never present, so I can not run this. I am not sure if the malware is preventing normal install of this program.

In the system startup items there is always something like (from CCleaner):
Program:tipejabov
File: Rundll32.exe "c:\windows\system32\biluguki.dll",a
the name of the file varies. It was nonomasu.dll yesterday. it was wituloru.dll the day before.

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

HiI am working on a friends PC which seems to be heavily infected. The symptoms are they are unable to load taskmanger and msconfig as soon as you select them they disappear. CPU usage seems to be extremely high and so it is difficult to run any other programs. Also there seems to be a lot of traffic when they get on the internet. I have tried the FAQ and running the latest versions of spy bot, stinger, ad-aware, cwshredder they all seemed to find things which then just reappeared. Even though I ran cwshredder first ad-aware still found lots of coolwebsearch stuff which caused it to crash.I have also cleaned up the system with ccleaner 1.18 and defragmented the hard drive.The only way I was able to run Hijack this was in safe mode as other wise it would disappear as soon as I had opened it just like taskmanager.Any help would be really appreciated.Kind reagrdsDeitelLogfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 17:53:14, on 24/04/2005Platform: Windows XP (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 (6.00.2600.0000)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit32.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\WINDOWS\System32\devldr32.exeC:�...

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.

It all started last week when my computer contracted Trojan.Nebuler. My copy of Norton could'nt get rid of it so I downloaded various so called fixes. In the end I had to manually delete the trojan following the instructions on symantics web site - but that was when the fun really began. All sorts of pop up software has been appearing e.g. SysProtect, Drivecleaner and adult sites. Plus the computer has slowed down to a crawl. I have scanned my machine using Norton and AVG and Trend Housecall. And although they find new viruses, and remove them, they keep on coming back. I also downloaded and installed a Registry cleaner - to see if this would speed the thing up a bit, hope i havent deleted anything important (although it says I can recover the lines I have deleted). Can anyone help - here is the hjt log.

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!

Hi
Just got this issue three hours ago and it's getting on my nerves for real.. I'm really considering formatting my pc just because of it

I'll copy-paste what I wrote in the "steps taken in order to remove infection" field:

First I went into task manager and removed every weird and newly created task and its files.. they all had the same creation time. At the same time deleting any file with the same creation time near that location. Then looked around google and found someone recommending Adware Removal Tool by TSA which I used. It removed the mywebsearch hijacking and asked to restart, but then came another issue "tohot-something". And I ran adware removal tool again which did the job.. or so I thought because it came back. So I ran it again and it removed it again and I haven't restarted yet and running the tool again won't show "files found" but there're still ads everywhere.
One thing I noticed is, after running the tool and it fixing the issue there're no problems... until I enable an extension that is.. the moment I enable one everything comes back. I have RES and Mcafee site advisor but I removed them before making this thread.
Also when I first attempted to write the thread the laptop was being slow as hell and freezing and being noisy and the page crashed.. now nothing is happening.

Also I couldn't attach AdwareCleaner log because my system won't allow the software.
 

Answer:Adsware keep coming back

sorry for the double.. didn't realize it'll show it to readers.

I'm having a problem with spyware (I think!) on a new laptop. I have several spyware removers such as Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Terminator among others. They seem to detect spyware mainly in the system32 folder, namely vtutu.dll and various other .dll files. I think they are attached to explorer.exe and firefox.

Problem came back within a few days. Did the same thing this week and the computer seems to be running ok for awhile and then more attacks.

Now I am even getting a "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem error" every time I start up the computer and the error pops up throughout the session.

For the fourth time in the past few months, I have been experiencing strange pop-ups blocking my use of various programs. Twice, my IT dept. attempted removal of the virus, which looks like a virus warning from McAfee but will not allow removal or the use of the programs it is blocking. This time around it was blocking my use of Internet Explorer and Outlook.

A screen popped up and each time I tried to open the programs it would log a warning in the screen. The screen showed options for removing the items logged, however it would not respond to clicking any of the options and would only go away if I closed it out completely. If I did close it, as soon as I attempted to open those programs again, the warning would reappear. This is nearly identical to the last two or three times I have experienced this, with a couple weeks in between occurences.

I rebooted several times and recieved a pop-up message from Windows saying "Windows has recovered from a serious error." The third time I rebooted, it actually allowed me to open these programs without the warning. The first two times it would not go away. This has happened a couple of times prior, where that message seemed to temporarily fix my issue.

Is this a real virus that is hidden in my computer? What can I do to remove it completely?

I've been working on a user's laptop (Win XP SP3) that wouldn't boot, even into safe mode. I ran a windows repair from a Win SP SP3 installation CD, which allowed me to at least get into safe mode. There I found several trojans and viruses, including (these are Symantec names) Trojan.FakeAV!gen29, W32.Harakit, Trojan.Gen, Trojan.FakeAV. After cleaning, Malwarebytes found registry entries for Hijack.FolderOptions and Trojan.Agent. Finally satisfied that the system was clean, I restored the drivers and downloaded and installed all the Windows updates. Both processes required several reboots. I then returned the laptop to the user. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of not running final scans of the system first. But there had been no symptoms during the system restoration, so I was lulled into what was obviously a false sense of security.

Immediately after booting the system the next day, he got an alert from Symantec AV about two infected files: DWH9F.tmp and DWH1E.tmp, both in his profile's Local Settings\Temp folder. They were identified only as "Trojans" - no specifics. He was not yet connected to the internet and had no external devices attached. Laptop back to me. Malwarebytes found two infected registry items: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\svchost (Trojan.Agent) and HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\load (Trojan.Agent).

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:

Vundo Keeps coming back

OS:Windows XP, SP3

Hi,
I was forwarded from "http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/203107/after-windows-update-multiple-program-errors-pc-restarting-on-its-own/" to post here.... That thread kinda died... anyway...

Over the past month I've found multiple instances of Vundo, and things seem to be getting worse.
Every time I try to clean my system, Vundo keeps coming back - even if I dont do any browsing.
Most recently, i've been experiencing applications freezing (Firefox, McAfee, Warcraft3)
The system has also crashed mid-scan using McAfee several times, but not lately.
I'm unsure if these problems are related to the Virus or other system issues - I figure get rid of the virus first and troubleshoot the rest later.
My system is fairly new (Dec 08), it came with McAfee Enterprise installed. I also installed the free version of Spyware Doctor on my computer.
Neither of which seem to be able to remove the Virus, and at times can not even detect it.

I've started to notice that sometimes McAfee is disabled after restarting the computer; I hadn't changed any settings for that to occur.

I've tried using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as well as SUPER Anti-Spyware, both of which are doing a better job of finding and clearing traces of the virus (compared to McAfee). Also tried VirtumundoBeGone and in haste, ComboFix.

VirtumundoBeGone found no traces, and Combofix didnt do anything noticable.

Please help!

Hi, I've had this problem for about a week now. Something seems to have gotten onto my computer. The main thing I notice is there is a program called brastk.exe that gets autorun on startup. There are also a number of startup entries in msconfig that reactivate even if I disable them. They are:
"rundll32" which runs a dll called drkly16j.dll
"dumprep 0 -u"
"brastk.exe"

If I delete brastk.exe or drkly16j.dll they just get recreated on the next boot. It appears that something besides a program is running at startup, possibly a service or a program running on shutdown. There is also something redirecting my google searches, and when I plug in my flash drive an autorun file gets created along with a file called system.exe.

EDIT: uh-oh, I just tried to run HJT and Spybot and neither will start! No error messages, just double clicking on the program and nothing happens.

I really need help. Whenever I scan with avast, it tells me there's a virus. I can't delete because it's being used by another program. So I got into safe mode and try to remove it. A while later after I deleted it and back into Windows, I scan again and it's back. It's always in the same place too:

Hi

I am working on a friends PC which seems to be heavily infected. The symptoms are they are unable to load taskmanger and msconfig as soon as you select them they disappear. CPU usage seems to be extremely high and so it is difficult to run any other programs. Also there seems to be a lot of traffic when they get on the internet.

I have tried the FAQ and running the latest versions of spy bot, stinger, ad-aware, cwshredder they all seemed to find things which then just reappeared. Even though I ran cwshredder first ad-aware still found lots of coolwebsearch stuff which caused it to crash.

I have also cleaned up the system with ccleaner 1.18 and defragmented the hard drive.

The only way I was able to run Hijack this was in safe mode as other wise it would disappear as soon as I had opened it just like taskmanager.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Kind reagrds

Answer:Exactsearch keeps coming back

hi, Can you post the exact location of the Exactsearch item Panda says it found please?

Look in the program Results or Report from a scan where it was found and post where the item supposedly is.

One thing to try is to find the quarantine or items that were removed by Microsoft Antispyware, AdAware, Spybot or other program and delete those backed up items> Panda or another scanner may detect those.

so i didn't have this problem before and i JUST upgraded to SP2 via windows update and the installation went normal.everything seems to work fine but there's this program that i wasn't sure about that popped up as an alert from ZoneAlarm: MSNNOED.exe. i tried to google to see if this was a legit file but i couldn't find anything so i click no to not allow it to access the internet.i ran my virus checker and it didn't pick up anything. but when i ran malewarebytes with the most recent update, it found 3 "infected" files, one of which was the MSNNOED.exe and malewarebytes says it's a trojan agent. also it finds a comsa32.sys file which it deems as a trojan agent. when i search for that MSNNOED.exe file on my computer, it's in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 directory and there's another file in the Prefetch directory: MSNNOED.EXE-05ABE18F.pfnot sure what they are but malewarebytes quarantines them and removes them but requires a restart, which i do. when i restart and load back up, everything is fine and the file is supposedly gone (meaning when i try doing a search, MSNNOED.exe isn't there anymore as well as the other files). but when i try to open up task manager to see if it really is, shortly afterward i get an alert from ZoneAlarm saying do i want to let MSNNOED.exe access the internet. i click no. i do a search on my system again and sure enough, those same files are back there. is there a "hidden" program that...
