Question: it keeps coming back

I have a PC i believe is infected.
i have run Combofix, it appears to find something and reboot but i am unable to tell by the log what it found.
i think it is still infected because if i run CF again, it says it needs to reboot to continue.

Preferred Solution: it 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.)

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 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?????

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
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.

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!!

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.

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

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

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.

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).

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:

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

Answer:Bho Keeps Coming Back

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). When the ActiveX Control has loaded, click on "Click here to scan". Please be patient, as this scan may take a few hours. It all depends on the number of files on your computer. When BitDefender completes the scan, select the "Detected Problems" tab. Click on "Click here to export scan". Save the file as an HTML to your Desktop. Then click on the saved file and allow it to open with your browser. Go to Edit - Select All then copy/paste that log back here.

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.

@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, 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!!!

Hi all.Ive got broadbandand useing xp pro. Ive set so I can use faxing. Everything is as it should br ie correct windows open in fax wizard but when I try to send a fax to a remote fax unit it pops out of my fax and not at the remote fax.Any body got an answer Thanks MAGGX

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.

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.

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

 Hi all, my main computer has been infected with the ICE Malware twice now and I don't know what I can do to fix it at this point.
  I have done system restores, I have used malware and Kickstart pro and a couple of other programs and it still comes back.
 Any fix I make only lasts about 24 hours or so.
 I know the problem is with my Windows Registry. A window will pop up asking me if I want to allow the program to make changes to my computer via the registry and clicking no only brings up the window again and again until I click yes. 
Shortly after that, the ICE malware has shown up both time.
 At this point, I am thinking the only thing to do is do a system reformat but I've been told even that might not work.
At least I have everything I really care about backed up on external hard drives (learned my lesson from Cryptowall) but I would really like the stupid thing off my computer for good.
  Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated, as I am at my wit's end.

I have not had such an issue removing malware until this one. I say Superfish since it comes up with MalWareBytes every scan. IT is located in C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Default\Local Storage\. Everytime Chrome opens.
 
 
I can remove the PUP, restart and be good to go until a few minutes running chrome. IE is not affected. It will not replicate. I have used Rkill to stop processes and followed with MBAM. I have used AdWCleaner and JunkWare Removal Tool. I have run a sleugh of others as well.
 
I have cleaned up the Programs list with what I feel are neccessary. No unwanted as far as I can tell. I have done my due diligence with this.
 
I have also removed Flash, Reader, and Java and have updated with latest versions from valid sites. I have disabled PepperFlash in Chrome and tried a default Flash but came back as well.
 
I have traced the infection to the registry (made a back-up first, but am pretty comfortable around it as well) and removed the points of infection there. It works great with IE but a few seconds after Chrome is opened, it's back. I have use Chameleon as well, thinking the browser themselves could be infected.
 
I believe it is a file dropper located on the computer. I thought I was successful with a program located in the TEMP directory associated with Mozilla but no luck.

Hello, everyone. After running Spybot, Ad-Aware, Norton Anti-Virus Corporate Edition, The Cleaner, and other anti-virus program, a virus keeps coming back on my computer. I've updated all my anti-virus software, but the ads keep coming, loading links and programs (mostly toolbars like Lycos SideSearch, Hotbar, SuperBar, and Wubar) into Internet Explorer and on my desktop. I've followed a great deal of instruction from members of this board, but it keeps coming back. I have posted my Hijack This! log below, so hopefully someone can figure it out. I do not know the name of this virus/trojan/worm, so I cannot pinpoint it down and find info. on it elsewhere. This morning when turning on my computer, There were over eight new icons on my desktop, most of which seemed to be from the same company. Titles like "casino online", "travel", and "card games" were beneath the icons, and I believe the host name (according to ad-aware) was Wubar or something fo the sort. To anyone who can help figure out how to get rid of this pest, please let me know. Thank you.

Hi,

Having a problem with my laptop (64bit, Windows 7), A pop up always comes up during startup to a webpage and only has a close button. Ending mshta.exe in task manager seems to close it temporarily, but comes back after a few minutes.

Hello,

I believe I have a variation of the Zero Access Rootkit. It creates a file consrv.dll in the system32 directory. Hitmanpro has detected it and has tried to remove it, but it keeps reappearing.
Other symptoms have included the loss of internet connection (removing McAfee has resolved that issue). The windows firewall and service is completely missing and I have not been able to restore it. If left alone the system becomes unstable and I am forced to do a restore just to get it to boot.
I am running Windows 7 Home Prem 64 bit.
I have run the following without success Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, Spybot, rootkitbuster, Sophos, TDSSKiller, Kaspersky Rescue disk and a few others. All without success

I have attached the log files from DDS adn GMER. Although on GMER it would not let me check off most items (boxes were greyed out, I suspect it was because of the 64 bit OS).

I'm running out of ideas.... help...

This started about a couple months ago. I got the webpage "search.protectedio" as my homepage out of nowhere, and I couldn't find a way to get rid of it. And now it appears I have a backdoor.agent. I tried all sorts of ways to keep it from messing up my homepage, but none of it seemed to work. Soon, I figured out that I could stop this webpage from setting itself, by putting the google properties to "Read Only". This fixed the problem, and for a short while I thought it was fine. I even scanned my pc with AdwCleaner, and Malwarebytes, which had supposedly remove it all. That is, when I scanned again the next day, it was all there. I can't begin to think of how many times I have removed these registry keys/data, and as such, I can't seem to fully get rid of these pups.

Hi. My problem seems similar to what others have posted, but I know that each system is unique.It seems like I am infected with some sort of malware. I was phished, but my norton symantec caught the trojan. However, now every two or three days the trojan comes back, only there are more and more of the infection. I tried a number of malware removal progams, which frequently find a problem. However, it has not solved the fact the trojan returns again in greater number in two or three days.Thanks.Below is my DDS file:DDS (Ver_2012-10-19.01) - NTFS_AMD64 Internet Explorer: 9.0.8112.16421Run by XXXXXXX at 15:56:52 on 2012-10-31Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7601.1.1252.1.1033.18.9207.6118 [GMT -4:00].AV: Symantec Endpoint Protection *Enabled/Updated* {88C95A36-8C3B-2F2C-1B8B-30FCCFDC4855}SP: Windows Defender *Disabled/Updated* {D68DDC3A-831F-4fae-9E44-DA132C1ACF46}SP: COMODO Defense+ *Enabled/Updated* {FEEA52D5-051E-08DD-07EF-2F009097607D}SP: Symantec Endpoint Protection *Enabled/Updated* {33A8BBD2-AA01-20A2-213B-0B8EB45B02E8}FW: Symantec Endpoint Protection *Enabled* {B0F2DB13-C654-2E74-30D4-99C9310F0F2E}FW: COMODO Firewall *Enabled* {7DB03214-694B-060B-1600-BD4715C36DBB}.============== Running Processes ===============.C:\Windows\system32\wininit.exeC:\Windows\system32\lsm.exeC:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k DcomLaunchC:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Comodo\launcher_service.exeC:\Windows\...

Working on a friend's laptop, running Win XP - and it seems to be really infecfted.
 
I ran MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware, and they found and removed multiple items (PUP Desktop, Yontoo, etc).  
 
They don't seem to stay gone.  I briefly connected the laptop to the net and it seemed to self re-infect pretty quickly.
 
He was only running an outdated Mcafee and his kid had previously done some file sharing.
 
I'm leaving the laptop disconnected from the net and working through a desktop for this.
 
 
I ran through all the prep steps in this forum and should be ready to go.
 
Here's my DDS scan, and I've attached the zip file.

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,

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.

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? 
 
Thanks..

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.

Hello all, I seem to have malware or viruses that I cannot get rid of. I am running Windows 7 currently on my computer. 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.

Despite regular PC anti-virus scans, Avast, and online scanners like ESET and scans from Malwarebytes, which usually returns little, the one that captures malware best for me is Spybot.

But it seems I keep removing same malware like Fastclick etc.

Any other scans available?

I've posted Hijackthis scans many times in past, but stopped as I recently get no responses.

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.

I have been paying increasing attention to W10 evolution as release date approaches. I am very much not convinced, but it does SEEM as if Win8 usability is coming back. In fact, some of the Win8 usability that got lost in 8.1 may even be making a reappearance? The issues I have been concerned about so far, and their current status as I am led to believe, are as follows:Full Metro immersive interface for Metro apps and Start Screen not enabled at boot - Corrected.Horizontal scroll (ideal for wide screen devices) replaced by vertical scroll in full Metro interface - Corrected.Task bar forced on in Metro interface - Corrected.Current desktop apps not showing on desktop task bar when full Metro interface enabled - Optional, can be switched back on.Charms bar not present - Corrected, when full Metro is enabled charms return.Share not present - It is present, but it is hidden in different places for every app? Sounds unlikely when MS's stated goal is a unified interface in all things, is there no option on the task bar or something? Is there any way to add an icon or tile or something as a shortcut so I don't have to keep searching for it? Otherwise I'll end up just going straight to the email app every time which would be a big backwards step. What's the procedure here? Or have I got this confused?Metro snap - Corrected kind of, it works but for some reason has been hidden with a double swipe, first down then from the left? Or something?

I have a spyware problem that I can't fix. Usually, if Spybot S&D doesn't find it, I have been able to track it down in the windows or system folder and delete it in DOS, but I'm stuck this time.

It all started when the IST bar helped itself to my computer along with Gator, Xupiter and some other crap. Spybot S&D did not get rid of the IST bar, but I found the istsrv.dll file and deleted some keys in the registry to lose sight of any IST stuff.

The problem now is, every time I go to a page that has pop-ups, such as Sunspot News and even my own webpage, something is causing the original ads to be replaced with tracking cookies from DoubleClick, MediaPlex, and Avenue A.

AdAware found and deleted 37 different files and reg keys, but the problem still remains. The virus scan came up empty. I don't know if it is a javascript thing or a .dll file or what.

I downloaded Pop Up Killer and it stopped some of the action, but the cookies are still getting through.

Does anyone know what files or registry key might be causing this. I'm running 98SE and IE 5.5. I feel like I'm ready to do an fdisk right now.

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.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 running Windows XP SP3 and I installed a new hard drive (wiped). I had some issues installing drivers and I downloaded some sort of a "driver detective" program that (I think) infected my computer with all sorts of crap. I know, I know -- I'm an idiot.

I ran Spybot, AdAware, Malwarebytes, and HijackThis. I scanned, rescanned, cleaned, rebooted several times, etc. I was able to get rid of everything (I think) except for KBDNET.dll. I can't "fix" it through HIJACKTHIS and when I delete it through FileAssassin, it comes right back after restart.

My HijackThis log is below. Can anyone help me to get rid of KBDNET.dll once and for all? Thank you!!

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.

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' )

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 keylo... Read more

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!
Let me know if there are any logs or reports you ... Read more

Answer:Vundo Keeps coming back, not sure what to do

Well the best we can do is get an MBAM and perhaps a SUPER Anti-Spyware log to start with.Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when doneclick Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan.After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.
