MediaPipe pop up keeps coming back.

Question: MediaPipe pop up keeps coming back.

I've had problems with the MediaPipe/Plus pop up coming back after removing it for a few weeks now. It started out as a file that was downloaded in the background while on some web site. Since then I've used add/remove programs, add/remove and removed it on startup on regsupremepro, ewido, ccleaner, blbeta to see if it showed up any hidden files, and spybot search & destroy. Now I keep getting a pop up that is telling me my 3 day trial is up and wants me to pay and I seen the files on the computer again. I haven't tried the aproposfix, kill bot, or clean up yet. Here is my HJT log.

Preferred Solution: MediaPipe pop up 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: MediaPipe pop up keeps coming back.

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.

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?????

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.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

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:

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

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.

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

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

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.

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).

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

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.

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:

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.

Hello all

I have recently been having a problem with trojware and viruses. I use Zone Alarm extreme security as my usual firewall/antivirus, and whenever I quarantine, delete, rename or even delete on reboot, this keeps coming back
photo: "http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/2328/serg.png" (couldn't be assed to name it so just mashed buttons, hence 'serg' :D)

Anyway, this has been happening for a while now, although its not just this, I have been getting other viruses, trojware, etc. and zone alarm keeps deleting them, and they keep coming back.
Another symptom, on Google chrome, when I google search something, when I click on the result, it occasionally redirects me to other search sites, where it searches the same thing.
For example, I google search "spyware removal". Click on the first result, whatever that may be, and it takes me to ask.com search results page for "spyware removal". It is not just ask.com though, it is sometimes just other weird search sites.

I have used malwarebytes anti-malware, as that is my 'big guns' antivirus, which I just use whenever zone alarm fails to take care of the problem, but although malwarebytes says it has deleted it, I always seem to find it again a few days later.

Its not a massive deal, as there is no slow down on my pc, but im just kinda nervous typing in any personal details in my browser, like banks or email, etc, because I don't know if the trojans have keyloggers built in ... Read more

I run Malwarebytes Pro and I recently encountered an infection where all of my Autorun executables were being renamed to have a space before the name and another executable was being put in its place. I manually removed all of these dummy .exe's and searched the entire drive for any other .exe's with the same file size and recent modification date. I removed all I found. I've not run into any further issues similar to this.

I originally removed wmpscfgs.exe and js.mui from various folders using MBAM.

However, Malwarebytes Pro is popping up daily saying that wmpscfgs is infected in my Internet Explorer directory. Each time, I tell it to quarantine. Rinse, repeat. Malwarebytes continuously pops up down at the bottom of the screen saying 'Malwarebytes has blocked access to a potentially harmful website at 58.240.239.70' or something similar. The popup doesn't stay up long enough for me to get exact wording. (The IP varies, but this is the most recent pop up as of now.)

I've scanned with MBAM, SASW, CWShredder... It's still happening and I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to proceed. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

My sister-in-law's PC runs Vista Buisness and recently gave her a popup from a "Norton" scan. Said she had 80+ viruses, problem is she hasn't had Norton since I removed the trial version that came with her PC over a year ago. And yes I used the Norton removal tool. Now checking Task Manager I found the ccSvcHst.exe file running, I downloaded and ran a new version of the Norton Removal tool. It stops the process but it comes back on restart.

She has McAfee running and updated, i ran (and updated each first) Spybot and Malwarebytes. Nothing was found.

Where this keeps coming back I'm wondering if the system is infected with something that is getting past McAfee, Spybot and Malwarebytes?

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

If you take a look here, this exe is actually a part of the Norton/Symantec GUI and is not a virus.

Everytime I reboot my computer, Downloader keeps coming back.

http://www.symantec.com/security_res...101518-4323-99

I have followed the removal instructions here, and no virus scan is detecting any infected files in safe mode. System restore is disabled until I figure this thing out.

When I check my logs in Norton Antivirus it says one file was automatically deleted, and one file was repaired.

This is the text for the repaired file:

Source: Manual Scanner
Risk category: Virus
Click for more information about this risk : Downloader
Action taken: Repaired
Description: Affected areas:
1 Additional areas:
Unknown - Deleted

It bothers me because I dont know what it is repairing, and I would like to delete that file as well.

All virus scans, spyware scans, everything comes back clean. Then I reboot, open a browser and wham, the file is detected and deleted again.

Here is my HijackThis file.

I downloaded HijackThis and removed a number of items but I don't dare remove any more. I'm posting the HijackThis log. There is an R1 item that I keep removing but it keeps returning. After a while some of the other items that I have previously removed come back too.
There is a whole list of junk in Favourites that don't show in Order Favourites and don't respond to right-clicking. I find the whole thing very frustrating and thought I'd turn the problem over to the experts at Tech Support Guy .

It does get rid of these items, but as soon as I open IE, they all come back.

I have run Ad-Aware full system scan several times. Also have run "VX2 Cleaner".

Have cleaned all hard drives, log files, caches, cookies, histories, defragged & checkdisked.

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):

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.

Computer is a homebuilt Athlon running Win XP. Browser is Firefox. I run through a wired router to Comcast HS internet. McAfee is installed (but I have low expectations there).

I keep thinking I've got rid of it but it keeps coming back.

On Monday (1/18) I got a nasty virus. Spent all day Tuesday getting at it... finally installed XP on a spare drive and got Super Anti Spyware to run and look at my C: drive. It found Adware Vundo/Variant-QHeader which contained sysguard.exe and quaranteed it. I finally repaired my C drive so it would boot and ran Malwarebytes and Super Anti Spyware on it. It keeps coming up clean.

However, as I surf the internet (and I'm not going into nasty places), I keep getting new tabs that pop-up (usually from the MSNBC site). Something about a Government Check, an offer for Registry Defender, Yellow Pages for Jackson MI, a couple of Porn sites. If I rerun SAS, it finds some adware in cookies which it fixes, but after a while the phenomena keeps coming back. When SAS is running, McAfee keeps popping up with a message that it has "blocked Spy Alert", or Spy Pro, or a couple of other things.

Last ran SAS and it found a cookie to "atdmt(2).txt". I tried to google THAT and all kinds of SHI** started popping up on my computer!

Just ran Malwarebytes (1.41) and it found Rootkit-TDSS in "Local Settings, Temp Int Files" and a registry key for a Trojan "FakeAlert.N" These were quarantined.

Answer:Various nasties keep coming back

Just ran Malwarebytes (1.41)Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has been updated to v1.44. Please download and install the most current version from here. You may have to reboot after updating in order to overwrite any "in use" protection module files.The database last I checked it was 3614.Update the database through the program's interface (preferable method). Then perform a new Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.Note: Mbam-rules.exe is not updated daily. Another way to get the most current database definitions if you're having problems updating through the program's interface or have already manually downloaded the latest definitions (mbam-rules.exe) shown on this page, is to do the following: Install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program and update through MBAM's interface. Copy the definitions (rules.ref) to a USB stick or CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system.

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).

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).

About two weeks ago I got a google redirect virus which I was able to get rid of with the TDSS Killer. Then a week ago a icon in the bottom right of the screen shows up and then I start getting those fake virus warning messages which I avoid clicking. The next thing I know the internet won't work and I can't run any spyware removal programs. I tried using system restore but it would come back up again after a few minutes. I was able to use another computer to look up information. I booted up into safe mode and checked the lan settings but we have DSL so I don't know if that is why nothing was listed. I made sure all boxes were unchecked for the proxy settings but the internet still didn't work. I downloaded and installed RKill with a usb device with the name iexplorer.exe but whenever I try running it I get the blue screen of death. Didn't matter which mode I was in. Since that didn't work I boot back up into safe mode. I ran HJT and looked for any files listed on different sites but found none that were the same. I even go and try to manually find the files (hidden files shown) but no luck. Next I run an updated Malwarebytes and it doesn't find anything other than tracking cookies. The next things I ran was my CCleaner, Spy Doctor, and Hitman Pro. None of them found anything other than cookies. At that point I'm running out of ideas. Finally I downloaded SuperAntiSpyware and that finds 3 trojans. I remove them and boot up into normal mode and didn't have any signs of the vir... Read more

The problem I am experiencing is that fake virus protection programs will run on my computer and cause my computer to blue screen (not sure of the message but will consciously look if it happens again and post here). It also sometimes just goes straight to the blue screen. I run malwarebytes and spybot on my computer and they always eliminate a lot of trojans (trojanproxy.agent, trojan.fakealert, trojan.agent, trojan.agent.gma, rogue.fakeHDD). I also noticed that some are the svchost.exe that I see other people have mentioned. So I remove all of these and they all seem to come back. I also have restored my computer back to previous points when I get so bogged down by error messages that I cant even get to the malware removal tools. Thanks.

Hi,
I cannot seem to completely clean this IE hijacker from my system.
I have Windows XP and I am running HijackThis 1.98.2 to scan and fix.

I delete entries such as:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\sid\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html
I get on the web again afterwards, and this spyware is back.

Does anyone know to fix this completely?
Thanks
Sid

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!

Hi again,

I use 2000 professional at work, and have full administrator priveleges to my box.

I can set my profile to be either roaming or local, and for some time it was mistakenly set up as roaming.

While working via the roaming profile, I created a couple of folders on my desktop which will not go away. I delete them, and they re-appear when I log in again.

If I change my profile to local, I can delete them permanently. But as soon as I change back to roaming and log in again, they're back.

I'm not much of whiz at this network stuff, and wondered if there was a trick to get rid of these folders. I'm able to delete other things off of my desktop, but not these folders. It's very strange.

Thanks in advance!!

Dr. Michael
 

Answer:Folders that keep coming back...

The folders are on the server, you need the permissions on the server to delete them. If you don't intend on using the roaming profile at all any more, log on to the server as administrator, and remove your user folders there. That means under documents and settings on the server, you would delete Doc (if that's you) and all the folders below it will be deleted with it. If you just want to remove those two folders, expand Doc, click on desktop, and delete those folders. Then the roaming profile is still there, but those folders will be gone. Just make sure you didn't save anything to my documents you want to keep.

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.

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.

Hi...
 
Hope someone can help.  I have a Inspirion 910 mini that is super slow loading web pages in all browsers.  I usually use chrome and have seen things that it is waiting for on the lower left corner.  I googled some of them and found out they are adware tracking cookies.  One common one that shows up is g.doubleclick.net.
 
I ran several removers "super antimalware" "malwarebytes" ect. and they find them and remove them.  When I rescan after booting they are still gone.  However...as soon as I open a browser and start surfing they come back.  I can then rescan and find 30 to 115 at one point.
 
How do I get these to go away for good?

@Kemper -- Oh - this is a thread in the spyware section -- sorry Kemper (didn't see it)


I read that the DSO Exploits are a "false alarm" and a "weakness" in Spybot. It will keep finding them, I guess, because they're in the system but they must not be a problem.

I have gone into the "advanced setting" of Spybot and gone to the "ignore products" section and FIRST make sure NOTHING is checked. Then, I find the DSO Exploits box and check that. Then Spybot will ignore them and you don't have to worry about "deleting" them ever again or "finding" them again.

Hi there
Can anyone help please.
I have followed the instructions on "READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING......" and the only thing I couldn't do in Safe Mode was the Symantec Security Check which I did afterwards in Normal Mode.
However, every time I reboot and run my Ad-aware SE again, the same registry key referring to "elite" keeps popping up - I have deleted this key with Ad-aware, HiJack This and manually through regedit (in Safe Mode as well as Normal Mode). It has made no difference, the registry key keeps popping back again when running Ad-aware or HiJack This. There appears to be 2 keys (plus a third key) in the BHO section in the list.
I have pasted only these entries here (not the whole log):

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81ABC} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {53707962-6F74-2D53-2644-206D7942484F} - C:\PROGRA~1\SPYBOT~1\SDHelper.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {ED103D9F-3070-4580-AB1E-E5C179C1AE41} - (no file)

Can anyone suggest anything to delete this once and for all?
Thanks

Answer:elite keeps coming back

Hi Barbie,

Did you have System Restore (Assuming OS) OFF when you fixed the bad items? Try looking in Add/Remove Programs for EliteBar - Look in program files as well for an Elite Folder.

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81ABC} - (no file
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {ED103D9F-3070-4580-AB1E-E5C179C1AE41} - (no file) ---> These two are EliteBar remnants. As you can see, the files have been removed, probably by one of your tools.

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {53707962-6F74-2D53-2644-206D7942484F} - C:\PROGRA~1\SPYBOT~1\SDHelper.dll ---> This is Legitimate and needed!


You should also send us a HijackThis Log to review. Please be sure to follow the instructions below:

Note that your HijackThis should be up-to-date (v1.99) and MUST be extracted to its own safe folder ? C:\Program Files\HijackThis!

Should you need a Fresh Download of HJT, get it HERE: HijackThis v1.99

Also note that, before you scan, you MUST close all running programs including your web browser, e-mail and items in the system tray.

Please save your HJT Log as a .txt File and attach it via the "Manage Attachments" tool in the Additional Options section when you post.

I?m not around this forum too often these days, but somebody will try to take a look when they get a chance.

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.

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.

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.

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).

I've followed all the instructions on the READ ME FIRST thread (thanks a million, it's very clear and helpful). I've got almost all the crap cleared, so any help getting the last bit out would be appreciated.
 

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

"Fix these with HJT
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Service] C:\WINDOWS\system32\prvdi.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Service] C:\WINDOWS\system32\prvdi.exe"

but today, these files show up again. Also, McAfee reports deleting dload.exe once every few hours. It does not find any virus, though.

I also tried:
Sophos SAV32CLI
Xoft Spy
SpyBot
AdAware SE

I also looked at windows and system32 entries, win.ini and system.ini, but nothing in there.

I have two computers, a Dell laptop and HP desktop, that seem to have the same malware. There is a hijacker in the browsers. It takes you to some ad search engine when you type something in Google. Or bogus spyware remover website if you type "malwarebytes" or "AVG". I have run several anti-viruses and anti-spyware on the computers and the malware keeps coming back. I ran AVG, Avira, Kapirsky rescue disk, Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Eset online and regular, and my techie friend ran Combofix. I fixed the Winsocks and checked the Autoruns. When he ran ComboFix it said Combofix found a Boot Sector virus or something like that and a rootkit and rebooted and removed it. Then I fixed the Winsocks and checked the Autoruns. I unchecked strange entries in Autoruns. I reset Internet Explorer a few times. But the hijacker came back within minutes. Combofix can't seem to remove it completely. Should I reformat? I read that a boot sector virus can persist through formatting and that I should throw away the hard drives. This seems a bit much. Should I f-disk? I don't even know if I have an fdisk floppy anymore and these computers don't have floppy drives. I tried to buy an external floppy drive but the guy at the parts store looked at me as if I were from the stone age. He suggested I buy a flash drive. I suppose you could f-disk from a cd? Anyway if anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it.

I've been on the phone with Microsoft every day since last Monday.
It started with Norton detecting one trojan but not being able to fix it, and a full system scan found over 100 Adwares. After dealing with not being able to open Windows Exp or Internet explorer, I deleted a trojan and spyware in the registry and got adaware and spybot on the system.

However, I keep having problems. As of yesterday,
I have deleted and found again
/Pribi
Backweb
Kenston
two other trojans and a worm that I don't have the names for, but none of them are new.

While on the phone with Msft this morning, I ran a search for Exe files and found Spite6, Tigger, Backdoor and about 26 others that looked suspicious.

The problem is Norton, PestPatrolAV, AVG, Housecall virus scans are not detecting anything other than Adware, which I can't shake off the computer.

I have installed a new firewall and AV software along with pestpatrol.

Answer:Spyware keeps coming back!!!

Please rename Hijackthis.exe

It's currently located at C:\Applications\Hijack This\HijackThis.exe

Rename it from Hijackthis.exe to HJT.exe

Then post a fresh Hijackthis log & tell me what type of antivirus program you have installed

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...

Hello,

I am using a 64 bit version of windows vista. I have a virus on my computer that keeps coming back. Usually I am able to remove viruses on my computer using a combination or rkill, malwarebytes, and super anti spyware, but this specific virus keeps coming back, even after I clear it with malwarebytes. Also the virus wont let me update my malwarebytes software. I have tried to do a sytem restore, but everytime I click on the icon, i am asked to select a program to open system restore with, and I am not sure which program to pick. On my desktop there is a suspicious icon named system restore. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
