Hello everyone.

I have just used HJT on my own to get most of the spyware and viruses off the computer. I had removed the virus alert from the system clock as well as the virus alert from system properties. The only problem i am having now is I cannot get any *.exe to run. This is even after if i get lucky when installing a program. There was a similar post of this problem of how the user renamed the file to anything other than originally named and it worked. It worked for trying to install Spybot search and destroy however i cannot get it to run to scan the computer for left over adware isssues.

Here is a New HJT log where i stand now, as well as Silent runner.vbs

Im up for anything on how to fix this [bleep] thing, this has been the biggest challenge i have faced with fixing. I have been around adware and taken care of it before but nothing like this. Kahdah I hope your reading this

Hi there,

First off download the attached zip file - extract it and double click on xp_exe_fix.reg.
If you can't open regedit do the following. Press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter.


Please download Runscanner to your desktop and run it.
  • When the first page comes up select Beginner Mode
  • On the next page select Save a binary .Run file (Recommended) then click Start full scan at the top.
  • At this time Runscanner.exe may request access to the Internet through your firewall please allow it to do so, it will then run for two or three minutes.
  • On completion it will ask for a location to save the file and a name. It will do this for both the .run file and the log file
  • Call the .run file "Mylog" and save it to your desktop. You will see the .run file on your desktop. Upload that file here.
    If the forum doesn't let you upload it then please zip the .run file by right clicking the file and selecting send to Zip file.

To attach a file, do the following:* Click Add Reply
* Under the reply panel is the Attachments Panel
* Browse for the attachment file you want to upload, then click the green Upload button
* Once it has uploaded, click the Manage Current Attachments drop down box
* Click on Posted Image to insert the attachment into your post

Thanks for the help here is the Mylog.run File zipped. I did run the *.exe extension fix. I wanted to also update you that I ran combo fix and turned off the vundo virus replication using spybot startup items. I have ran Nod32 to make sure eradication is eliminated. I do not have the virus anymore. I can now run *.exe files from the laptop. Let me know if there is anymore clean up that needs to be done. I have also used the ATF-Cleaner. This was all done before I recieved any reply.

Thanks, let me know what you see in the log

I think you may still have an infection,

Download the zipped attachment at the end of this post (this will be your runscanner file fixed by me).
  • Unzip it to your desktop then double click the runscanner icon this will run the program.
  • You will notice several entries in red.
  • Click the button at the top called Fix selected items
  • Accept the warning(s) and repeat until they are all gone.
  • Reboot your PC


Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other windows before proceeding.
  • Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
Note:These logs may be too large to post in one reply, if so, please post extra.txt in a separate reply.

Mike I appreciate your help and everyone else however, I have already turned in the laptop. I had ran out of time in fixing the laptop and had to give it back. I cleaned it the best i could within the allotted time.

Thanks again to everyone
