Executable Files Issue [Solved]

Hello,

I visited some of the movie download websites last week and since luck didn't favour me well enough, I was rather infected with a strange kind of virus or whatever we want to call it..The symptoms are as follows:

1. A lot of executable programs cannot be launched or will throw the typical Windows 7 "Program has stopped working" error. This includes Skype, Chrome, Mcafee (but background tasks are running), Malwarebytes, IE, etc. & even OTL.exe. I have also attached the error message I received when OTL was executed, if it helps in any way.

2. Internet browsing speed has slowed down quite a bit. Sometimes the page just doesn't load.

3. Guest windows logon doesn't work. As soon as you click on Guest, it logs you off immediately.

I used the DDS scanning program which fortunately worked and here is the log file. My apologies if I wasn't supposed to run this program. And as always, thanks much in advance for your valuable time for fixing my mess.

Hello, you have posted this same information at BleepingComputer as well: http://www.bleepingc...opic453463.html

Working on your problem at two forums simultaneously is not only unproductive (instructions may interfere with each other), it also takes up the time of two volunteers. Please let me know which topic you want to keep to and I will close the other topic.

Hello, I closed the BC topic.

COMBOFIX
---------------
Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:
Bleepingcomputer
ForoSpyware
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • Double click on Combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, or if you are running Vista, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\Combofix.txt in your next reply.

Hi, I'm glad to hear that! :)

Do you have any other problem left?

I see signs of McAfee antivirus, are you still (trying to) run this, or do you use another antivirus program?

Elise, my layman eyes don't see any other problem left on my PC, but I do see some new directories like found.001, Qoobox etc. created in C:\ after running Combofix. Yes I use McAfee Antivirus which I'm able to launch as well and this is the only antivirus program I use. Thanks much.

found.000 is caused by a diskcheck, and qoobox is part of combofix, so no need to worry about these. :)

Your version of Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system.
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 7u3.
  • Look for "JDK 7u3 (JDK or JRE).
  • Click the "Download JRE" button at the right.
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
    • Select "Windows x86 Offline" and click on jre-7-windows-i586.exe
  • Save it to your desktop
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Uninstall all older versions of Java (any item with Java Runtime Environment, JRE or J2SE in the name).
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Install the newest version by double clicking (run as Administrator for Windows Vista/Seven) the downloaded file.

As you can see, not a good idea to continue to use keygens, as they're bound to come with the latest malware...

ALL CLEAN
--------------
Your machine appears to be clean, please take the time to read below on how to secure the machine and take the necessary steps to keep it clean :)

Please do the following to remove the remaining programs from your PC:
  • Delete the tools used during the disinfection:

    • Press windows key Posted Image + r on your keyboard at the same time. In the run box type combofix /uninstall, then press OK.

      Posted Image
    • This will remove Combofix and other tools we used from your computer.
  • You can delete any other tool or log by simply deleting them.
Please read the following advice on how to prevent reinfecting your PC:
  • Install and update the following programs regularly:
    • an outbound firewall. If you are connected to the internet through a router, you are already behind a hardware firewall and as such you do not need an extra software firewall.
      A comprehensive tutorial and a list of possible firewalls can be found here.
    • an AntiVirus Software
      It is imperative that you update your AntiVirus Software on regular basis.If you do not update your AntiVirus Software then it will not be able to catch the latest threats.
    • an Anti-Spyware program
      Malware Byte's Anti Malware is an excellent Anti-Spyware scanner. It's scan times are usually under ten minutes, and has excellent detection and removal rates.
      SUPERAntiSpyware is another good scanner with high detection and removal rates.
      Both programs are free for non commercial home use but provide a resident and do not nag if you purchase the paid versions.
    • Spyware Blaster
      A tutorial for Spywareblaster can be found here. If you wish, the commercial version provides automatic updating.
  • Keep Windows (and your other Microsoft software) up to date!
    I cannot stress how important this is enough. Often holes are found in Internet Explorer or Windows itself that require patching. Sometimes these holes will allow an attacker unrestricted access to your computer.
    Therefore, please, visit the Microsoft Update Website and follow the on screen instructions to setup Microsoft Update. Also follow the instructions to update your system. Please REBOOT and repeat this process until there are no more updates to install!!
  • Keep your other software up to date as well
    Software does not need to be made by Microsoft to be insecure. You can use the Secunia Online Software occasionally to help you check for out of date software on yourmachine.
  • Stay up to date!
    The MOST IMPORTANT part of any security setup is keeping the software up to date. Malware writers release new variants every single day. If your software updates don't keep up, then the malware will always be one step ahead. Not a good thing.

Please reply to this topic if you have read the above information. If your computer is working fine, this topic will be closed afterwards.
