So now, 1) What to do re: Windows UPdates


This was called Automatic Updates in XP. Farbar is not complaining so it's probably OK now.



2) Same re: Java (due to viral vulnerability): Disable? Update? Delete?


Disable from the browser or run Firefox with NoScript, Chrome with ScriptNo.

3) AV/Protection: A few people have suggested Norton 360, but I'm a little more agressive internet surfer than they are. As you prob know, I only have free AV programs. What's your recommendataion for my system. If it makes any difference, I now have Cent Link via phone jack and personalized password. My desktop (this comp) is plugged in, and i have an HP mini that connects via wireless; tho I don't know if it's WPA or WEP (or even what those mean for that matter).


If you want to pay for an anti-virus then get Kaspersky or BitDefender. If you want a free anti-virus then get the free version of Avast! You can add the free Online Armor firewall if you feel you need a firewall other than Windows' firewall. As for wireless, if you don't know then it's probably not encrypted at all unless this is via a special adapter which actually taps into your cellphone service in which case it's secure. I would hope there is some option to encrypt it if it is regular wireless otherwise anyone driving by can use your Internet service. WEP is the older encryption which is easily broken. WPA/WPA2 is the newer version which is much safer to use.

4) Often, i get this: Error Message: The Recycle Bin on C:\ Is Corrupt or Invalid. Do You Want to Empty the Recycle Bin for this.... what should I do?


Empty the Recycle Bin
then see the procedure under the next step.


5) When I start up in Normal MOde, I get: FOUND NEW HARDWDARE ... WIZARD for UNKNOWN.
IF IT CAME W/ CD or FLOPPY, PLZ INSTERT, or choose from....
I have been clicking on cancel, and then later a bottom right box pops up w/ PROB OCCURED IN INSTILLATION,
What do to about that?

Copy the next 6 lines:

dir /a /s \recycler > \junk.txt
dir /a /s \$Recycle.bin >> \junk.txt
reg query "HKCU\Software\Classes\clsid\{fbeb8a05-beee-4442-804e-409d6c4515e9}" /s > \junk.txt
reg query "HKCR\CLSID\{5839FCA9-774D-42A1-ACDA-D6A79037F57F}" /s >> \junk.txt
reg query "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F3130CDB-AA52-4C3A-AB32-85FFC23AF9C1}" /s >> \junk.txt
reg query "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{fbeb8a05-beee-4442-804e-409d6c4515e9}" /s >> \junk.txt

Start, Run, cmd, OK. Then right click in the Command Window and select Paste or Edit then Paste and the copied lines should appear. Hit Enter.

Attach the file c:\junk.txt to your next reply.

Also run vew again for both system and applications and post the logs.

6) Any and all other suggestions?

I will give you more to do in the goodbye post.

Kinner-

I turned on Auto Updates, but set to prompt me, the i'll download. IS there any reason NOT to download all updated suggested?

Now using Firefox with NoScript.

Reloaded Avast Free, but will look into Kasp & BitDef as well as Online Armor. As I do use surf a lot and P2P (I scan all files before opening them), is the level of protection worth the money? I am not broke, but I detest spending money where it will only give me 1% more protection than free programs.

RECYLER: Since I last posted, I accidentally hit "yes" to the prompt regarding emptying the Recycler Bin for this. I'm not sure if that messed up the process, but the text is below.

Thanks as [email protected]!@

I left out a ">" on the third line and it overwrote the first two. Can you just do these two again?

Both the cmd screen and junk log are odd, so I prt/scr'ed for you (see attachment// Never mind, won't attach for some reason.); and the vew logs are below, not sure if i did correctly.


WIERD C:JUNK LOG:

Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 206D-1F5F
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 206D-1F5F


That's it!!!

On VEW, I ran as before: Application and System, both with 'Error' and 'Warning' cliked and 20 in No of Events box.
If you would like it run otherwise, just let me know.
Thanks. -M

The junk.txt file just says it could not find the C:\Recycler which is odd. Can you see it in Explorer?

I'm seeing some hard drive errors which might explain why we lost internet. Let's run Disk check and see if it helps.

1. Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check. C:
2. Click Properties, and then click Tools.
3. Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
4. Check both boxes and then click Start.
You will receive the following message:
The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?
Click Yes to schedule the disk check, but don't restart yet.

Start, Run, eventvwr.msc, OK to bring up the Event Viewer. Right click on System and Clear All Events, No (we don't want to save the old log), OK. Repeat for Application.

Reboot.

The disk check will run and will probably take an hour or more to finish.



2. Double-click VEW.exe
3. Under 'Select log to query', select:

* System
4. Under 'Select type to list', select:
* Error
* Warning


Then use the 'Number of events' as follows:


1. Click the radio button for 'Number of events'
Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
Then click the Run button.
Notepad will open with the output log.


Please post the Output log in your next reply then repeat but select Application.

You asked about Windows Updates and I forgot to answer. The Express updates are almost always a good idea to get. The optional ones that show up under Custom are sometimes not so good. I have no use for Silverlight, Windows Live, or Windows Search but I do always get the updates for windows and the certificate updates. I would stay away from hardware updates and get those from your PC maker's site. Sometimes the ones you get from Windows don't work right.

Before I start this, Last night I did an Avast Boot Scan and it found 14 issues. I went ahead a deleted the V:Lee Child Persuader files, although they were listed as corrupt and not viral, and were not on the pop up Avast report where the 14 viruses were listed.
I'm guessing I got the Java virus again before I started using Firefox w/ NoScript?
I will wait to see if you still want me to do the last steps w/ Recycler & VEW. I can see the RECYCLE BIN on my desktop if that was what you were asking.
Thanks!

Clear the Java Cache by following the instructions on
http://www.java.com/...lugin_cache.xml

Delete your old OTL.exe and download the new version. It has been changed to detect ZA a little better. Run a quickscan and post the log.

Reboot into Safe Mode. Reboot and when you see the maker's logo, hear a beep or it talks about F8, start tapping the F8 key slowly. Keep tapping until the Safe Mode Menu appears and choose Safe Mode. Login with your usual login.)


First right click on Recycle Bin and select Properties then click on Do Not Move Files to the Recycle Bin. OK.
Right click on Start, and select Explore. Then navigate to C: Do you see Recycler folder in the right pane?

If not, Select the Tools option at the top and click Folder Options.
After the new window appears select the View tab.
Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.
Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide file extensions for known file types.
Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
Press the Apply button and then the OK button.

Move to a different folder then back to C: so that it has to refresh the screen. Do you see Recycler now?

If you see it, right click on it and select properties then Security. Click on Administrators then in the bottom of the pane make sure that Full Control is checked under ALLOW. OK. Now double click on Recycler. Does it open? If you see a folder called S-1-5-18, right click on it and try to delete it. In fact right click on any folder or files you see and try to delete them. If you are successful at this then close explorer and right click on Recycle Bin and uncheck Do Not Move Files to the Recycle Bin then OK.

I'm hoping that was it. The presence of the hidden S-1-5-18 folder means this was the latest version of ZA. It does something to block access to the recycler folder so our tools can't see it. I guess the report that the Recycle Bin is corrupt is the only clue that it is there. I would run another boot-time scan and see what it finds this time.

Let's check your error log and see if we need to fix anything.

Start, Run, eventvwr.msc, OK to bring up the Event Viewer. Right click on System and Clear All Events, No (we don't want to save the old log), OK. Repeat for Application.

Reboot.

1. Please download the Event Viewer Tool by Vino Rosso
http://images.malwar...om/vino/VEW.exe
and save it to your Desktop:

2. Double-click VEW.exe
3. Under 'Select log to query', select:

* System
4. Under 'Select type to list', select:
* Error
* Warning


Then use the 'Number of events' as follows:


1. Click the radio button for 'Number of events'
Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
Then click the Run button.
Notepad will open with the output log.


Please post the Output log in your next reply then repeat but select Application.

Short is good. No errors showing. Avast is happy. Windows is not complaining about the Recycle Bin. I think we are finally done unless you see something on your end we can clean up.

We need to clean up System Restore.

Copy the following:

:Commands
[CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS]
[Reboot]

Run OTL. In the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the copied text (Ctrl + v) and then hit Run Fix.

You can uninstall or delete any tools we had you download and their logs.
To uninstall combofix, copy the next line:

"%userprofile%\Desktop\combofix.exe" /Uninstall

Start, Run, cmd, OK then right click, Paste, then hit Enter.

OTL has a cleanup tab so if you run it again and select cleanup it will remove itself and its backup files.

To hide hidden files again (If you do not run OTL cleanup):

XP

# Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
# Double-click on the My Computer icon.
# Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
# After the new window appears select the View tab.
# Uncheck the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
# Under the Hidden files and folders section select the 'Hide protected operating system files (recommended)' option.
# Check the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
# Press the Apply button and then the OK button and exit My Computer.


Also make sure you have the latest versions of any adobe.com products you use like Shockwave, Flash or Acrobat.

Whether you use adobe reader, acrobat or fox-it to read pdf files you need to disable Javascript in the program. There is an exploit out there now that can use it to get on your PC. For Adobe Reader: Start, All Programs, Adobe Reader, Edit, Preferences, Click on Javascript in the left column and uncheck Enable Acrobat Javascript. OK Close program. It's the same for Foxit reader except you uncheck Enable Javascript Actions.

To help keep your programs up-to-date you should download and run the UpdateChecker:
http://www.filehippo.../updatechecker/
(You don't need to download Betas and if there is a program you don't use you can just uninstall it rather than update it. You can right click on the updatechecker icon (looks like a downward green arrowhead) and select Settings and tell it no betas. If you don't use MSN Messenger I would not upgdate it. MS installs a bunch of stuff when you do. You can tell the program to not show you that update.)
If you use Firefox or Chome then get the AdBlock Plus Add-on. WOT (Web of Trust) is another you might want to try.
The equivalent to AdBlock Plus for IE is called Simple Adblock and you should install it too: Adhttp://simple-adblock.com/

If Firefox is slow loading make sure it only has the current Java add-on. Then download and run Speedy Fox.
http://www.crystalidea.com/speedyfox . Click on Speedup my Firefox. When it finishes click on Exit.

Be warned: If you use Limewire, utorrent or any of the other P2P programs you will almost certain be coming back to the Malware Removal forum. If you must use P2P then submit any files you get to http://virustotal.com before you open them.

If you have a router, log on to it today and change the default password! If using a Wireless router you really should be using encryption on the link. Use the strongest (newest) encryption method that your router and PC wireless adapter support especially if you own a business. See http://www.king5.com...-120637284.html and http://www.seattlepi...ted-1344185.php for why encryption is important. If you don't know how, visit the router maker's website. They all have detailed step by step instructions or a wizard you can download.


Special note on Java. Currently there is an exploit out that works on all Java Version 7 software so we are recommending that if you do not visit websites that absolutely require Java that you turn it off in your browser per the instructions in http://www.geekstogo...ur-web-browser/
If you use websites that require Java and you trust them then we recommend that you use either Firefox with the NoScript add-on or Chrome with the ScriptNo add-on and avoid IE. NoScript/ScriptNo will turn off Java and Javascript on all websites you visit except for those that you specifically approve. More info on the exploit is here: http://krebsonsecuri...y-java-exploit/
A new Java 7 Version 7 was released on an emergency basis to fix the exploit but apparently actually makes things worse.


Special note on IE. Make sure you have the latest updates from Microsoft. Especially KB2744842 http://support.micro...com/kb/2744842. Do not use java with IE until they offer Java 7 Version update 8

Think i did it all but the router, save 2 issues:
1) i think i deleted OTL via its tab, along with delteing it, i think i deleted the original log created when i first ran it with the lines in your post pasted into the fixes box; I did reload and ran it again, and the log below is the second run, so it might be moot, sorry.
2) the update checker said I needed NVIDIA, which i don't remember ever seeing before. DO i need it?
I think that's it for my comp, much thanks!!

On an all together other note: on my laptop, i've been trying to do all the aspects you have recommended for my desktop, and the update checker won't run. It says: FileHippo Udate checher has stopped working. then: Windows is checking for a solution, then it goes away, and nothing. Can you give me some direction?
I did use the Mozilla "Plugin check and update" site, but it's not quite the same as the hippo undate checker.
Please let me know where to go for help.
Thanks as always!!
-Mateo

If we already cleared the Restore Points it won't hurt to do it again.

2) the update checker said I needed NVIDIA, which i don't remember ever seeing before. DO i need it?

You have NVIDIA drivers in your uninstall log. NVIDIA makes video cards so I expect that's your video driver. I prefer to get new drivers from the PC maker's web site rather than letting Windows or FileHippo give them to me.


What version of Windows does the laptop have? If it's Vista or Win 7 then you need to run it by right clicking and Run As Admin. FileHippo uses .net so if that's not installed correctly and up to date it may not run. There is another program called Secunia which does the same thing. It's Java based tho so you need to be careful with it. http://secunia.com/v...nning/personal/
