I doubt that it will cause you any problem (despite what some people say in the thread) because it would only be used if you used Chinese as your language. I don't have a 64 bit version of Windows 7 or we could try to replace the files just to see if we could get rid of the SFC error.
The AsPatch file is up to you. I have not seen anything yet that uses USB 3.0 but if you have a device that does then you might want to reinstall it using the download I mentioned earlier. The other file would probably be reinstalled if you downloaded the latest touchpad driver from Asus. Again it just allows your touchpad to do tricks so if you don't use the tricks don't worry about it.
I think we can clean up now:
Copy the following:
:Commands [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS] [Reboot]Right click on OTL and Run As Administrator. In the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom,
paste in the copied text (Ctrl + v) and then hit Run Fix.
That will get the last of the malware off the system.
You can uninstall or delete any tools we had you download and their logs.
To uninstall combofix, copy the next line:
Start, All Programs, Accessories then right click on Command Prompt and Run As Administrator.
then right click, Paste, then hit Enter.
OTL has a cleanup tab but DO NOT USE IT!. There are reports that it leaves the PC
unbootable. Instead just delete OTL.exe and the folder c:\_OTL.
To hide hidden files again:
Vista or Win7
# Open the Control Panel menu and click Folder Options.
# After the new window appears select the View tab.
# Remove the check in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
# Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Do not Show
hidden files and folders.
# 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
PC. For Adobe Reader: Start, All Programs, Adobe Reader, Edit, Preferences, Click on
To help keep your programs up-to-date you should download and run the 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. Exception is MSN messenger which appears to be part of
If you get a blocked program notice after installing updatechecker then change it to not run
at start then manually run it once a week.
Seems to work best if Firefox is the default browser. You can also try Secunia PSI
http://secunia.com/v...l/download_psi/ Same kind of info. You
don't need both.
If you use Firefox 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:
The free version only blocks 200 ads a day so another reason to use Firefox or Chrome.
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 . You can run it any time that Firefox seems slow.
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...pedophile-case-
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. Old Java versions should be removed after first clearing the Java
Cache by following the instructions in:
Then remove the old versions by going to Control Panel, Programs and Features and Uninstall
all Java programs which are not Java Version 7 update 9 or better. These may call
themselves: Java Runtime, Runtime Environment, Runtime, JRE, Java Virtual Machine, Virtual
Machine, Java VM, JVM, VM, J2RE, J2SE. Get the latest version from Java.com. They will
usually attempt to foist some garbage like the Ask toolbar, Yahoo toolbar or McAfee Security
Scan on you as part of the download. Just uncheck the garbage before the download (or
install) starts. If you use a 64-bit browser and want the 64-bit version of Java you need to
use it to visit java.com.
Make sure Windows Updates is turned and that it works. Go to Control panel, Windows Updates
and see if it works. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294871
You definitely need to have KB2744842. This patches a major flaw in IE.
