Mebromi a bios-flashing trojan

You needn't worry about this.

Let's focus on getting the fix right your copy did not get the last series of commands correct since it left off pieces. So let's try this:
Attached File  fix.txt   824bytes   44 downloads
Download the above file to your desktop named fix.txt


  • Please reopen Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click Run Fix
  • It will say "No fix is provided! Click OK
  • A dialog box will open and fix.txt should be in File name, Click Open
  • Check to make sure you see some lines in the Custom Scans/Fixes box
  • Push Posted Image again
  • OTL may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.
  • Click the OK button.
  • A report will open. Copy and Paste that report in your next reply.
  • If the machine reboots, the log will be located at C:\_OTL\MovedFiles\mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log, where mmddyyyy_hhmmss is the date and the time of the tool run.

I still can't see the names of my usb drives.. they show up as local disk..? It wasn't like that when I first formatted.. Also.. Malwarebytes never finds anything on my pc...plus I haven't connected to the Internet to update yet.. and even then nothing.. So I would say I am still "infected" or I still have this malicious software on my pc because the symptoms are still there.. :unsure:

We can work on this later it is not due to an infection it is a setting.

What symptoms beyond the labels of usb drives are you experiencing?

While opening programs while playing a movie the movie freezes for a few seconds.. the movies are on my usb drives. The open with tab in the top of explorer window is missing when I select a .exe file, nominal lag while scanning for infections.. I have had issues with infected explorer.exe, urlmon, terminal service starting on it's own, seclogon, internet option moving to an unsafe setting on their own.. users switching sides on winlogon screen, netportsharing infected, unknown multi numbered drivers, thumbs.db infected in system32 folder.. any idea how I can make network authority user account more secure or change the password? Also should I block DNS, HTTP and HTTPS from incoming on my firewall? I haven't connected to the internet due to the risk of further infection, since the infection remains after a multi pass format..

While opening programs while playing a movie the movie freezes for a few seconds.. the movies are on my usb drives.

So you are starting up a program while playing the movie? This is not unheard of and is not related to malware.

Did it not do this until recently?

If this is a change we may need to look at performance issues that need correcting but it is not a malware issue typically.


any idea how I can make network authority user account more secure or change the password?

What network are you running on to need this?

Also should I block DNS, HTTP and HTTPS from incoming on my firewall?
No is the simple answer. There may be a specific DNS or HTTP/HTTPS site you would want to block but stopping these would shut down any internet communication.


I am only asking these questions so that we can solve your computer issues since some may be malware and some not.

I was curious because, about the NT Authority super user because it heard it is a backdoor..

The scan does not show any issues of that nature.

Let's focus on what we need to update to insure your security.



Step 1.

Clear the Java Cache by following the instructions here


Then you will need to reconnect to the internet. At this point update Norton virus definitions and update MalwareBytes' then go on to step 2.

Step 2.

Update Java

Please download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder

Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
Accept any prompts.
Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.


Step 3.

Update Adobe Reader

Recently there have been vulnerabilities detected in older versions of Adobe Reader. It is strongly suggested that you update to the current version.

Uninstall all previous versions.
Download the latest version from: http://www.adobe.com.../readstep2.html

If you already have Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition installed or do not wish to have it installed UNcheck the box which says Also Download Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition.


Step 4.

Update adobe flash player

We need to uninstall the existing flash player(s). Please go here
Follow steps 1. to 4.
Once flash player is uninstalled go on to the next paragraph.

You will need to download and install both the IE and non-IE versions of Adobe Flashplayer. Make sure to uncheck the install of the McAfee tool before downloading. You will need to select your operating system (Windows 7 64-bit) and then each version to download and install separately.


Step 5.

Now we need to update Internet explorer to 9.0

Plase go to windows update:

Windows Update (Win 7)


Click Start >> Control Panel >> System and Security >> Under Windows Update click Check for updates >> Check for updates

Select and install any updates a few at a time, including IE 9.0, you have that are critical, important, and recommended.

You may have to reboot several times but this is an important step in maintaining your security.


Once this is complete make sure you setup automatic updates using instructions found here



Then come back and give me an update on your computer
