Hi mark64, :)

:welcome:

My name is Valinorum and I will be the acolyte today. Before we proceed, please, acknowledge yourself the following(s):

  • Please do not create any new threads on this while we are working on your system as it wastes another volunteer's time. If you are being helped/have solved the issue/no longer wish to continue, notify me in your reply and I will quickly close this thread. Failing to comply will result in denial of future assistance.
  • Please do not install any new software while we are working on this system as it may hinder our process.
  • Malware removal is a complicated process so don't stop following the steps even if the symptoms are not found. Keep up with me until I declare you clean.
  • Please do not try to fix anything without being ask.
  • Please do not attach your logs or put them inside code/quote tags. Do a Copy/Paste of the entire contents of the log file and submit it inside your post unless directed otherwise.
  • Please print or save the instructions I give you for quick reference. We may be using Safe mode which will cut you off from internet and you will not always be able to access this thread.
  • Back up your data. I will not knowingly suggest your any course that might damage your system but sometimes Malware infections are so severe that only option we have is to re-format and re-install the operating system.
  • If you are confused about any instruction stop and ask. Do not keep on going.
  • Do not repeat the steps if you face any problems.
  • I am not an omniscient. There are things even I cannot foresee. But what I know took years to learn and perfect the skill. This site is run by volunteers who help people in need in their own free time. I would ask you to respect their time and be patient as sometimes real life demands our time and replies to you can be delayed.
  • Privet Message(PM) if and only if I have not responded to your thread within three days or your query is offtopic and personal. Do not PM me under any other circumstances. Your thread is the only medium of communication.
  • The fixes are for your system only. Please refrain from using these fixes on other system as it may do serious damage.

Note: Please, bare in mind that I am still a trainee and my replies need to be reviewed by my teachers before I post them to you which requires time as both teachers and helpers are volunteers here. Take it as a good thing because now you have two people examining your problem. I really hope that we will be able to send you home with a smile on your face. :)

 

Do not attach the logs unless told otherwise.

  • Step #1 Scan with Security Check
    • Download Security Check by screen317 to your Desktop from any of the following location;
    • Link 1
    • Link 2
  • Right click on the program and choose Run as Administrator;
  • After the checking a log will appear;
  • Copy and Paste the content of the log in your next reply.

 

  • Required Log(s):
  • Security Check Log

Hi mark64, :)

Do not attach the logs unless told otherwise. Do a copy and paste it in your reply. How many tools have you run as self-help fix before coming here? Did you get the name your anti-virus block?

  • Step #2 Uninstall Programs
    I want you to uninstall the following program(s) listed below due to poor reputation we receive about them. To uninstall a program, go to Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a program or Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features. Wait for the list to fill up and double-click on the items I have listed below and follow the on-screen instruction to remove/uninstall them.
  • Free Registry Defrag
  • AVG PC Tuneup 2011
  • Best Buy pc app
  • TuneUp Utilities Language Pack (en-GB)
  • TuneUp Utilities Language Pack (en-US)

 

  • Step #3 P2P Warning
    **IMPORTANT I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Person to Person) File Sharing Programs on your computer.
  • µTorrent
I shall provide you with a few reference links, please read them up to know the risks of having a P2P program.

Note: Even if you are using a "safe" P2P program, it is only the program that is safe. You will be sharing files from uncertified sources, and these are often infected. The bad guys use P2P file-sharing as a major conduit to spread their wares.

My recommendation is that you uninstall the programs listed above.

If you choose not to remove them, please do not use them until this computer is clean.
 

  • Step #4 Fix with OTL
  • Re-run OTL by right clicking and choosing Run as administrator;
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes Box copy and paste the following contents inside the quote box. (Do not include the word 'quote').

Hi mark64, :)

The files missing should not warrant any issues.
  • Step #7 Run ESET Online Scanner

    Note: You can use either Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox for this scan. You will however need to disable your current installed Anti-Virus, how to do so can be read here.

    Vista / 7 users: You will need to to right-click on the either the Internet Explorer or Firefox icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.
    • Please go here then click on: Posted Image

      Note: If using Mozilla Firefox you will need to download esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe when prompted then double click on it to install.
      All of the below instructions are compatible with either Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox.

    • Select the option YES, I accept the Terms of Use then click on:Posted Image
    • When prompted allow the Add-On/Active X to install.
    • Uncheck the box beside Remove Found Threats
    • Make sure that the option Scan archives is checked.
    • Now click on Advanced Settings and select the following:
    • Scan for potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
  • Now click on:Posted Image
  • The virus signature database... will begin to download. Be patient this make take some time depending on the speed of your Internet Connection.
  • When completed the Online Scan will begin automatically. The scan may take several hours.
  • Wait for the scan to finish. Do not touch either the Mouse or keyboard during the scan. Otherwise it may stall.


When The Scan is Complete:

  • If No Threats Were Found:

    • Put a checkmark in "Uninstall application on close"
    • Close the program
    • Report to me that nothing was found
  • If Threats Were Found:
    • Click on "list of threats found"
    • Click on "export to text file" and save it to the desktop as ESET SCAN.txt
    • Click on Back
    • Put a checkmark in "Uninstall application on close" (Be sure you have saved the file first)
    • Click on Finish
    • Close the program
    • Copy and paste the report here


Note: Do not forget to re-enable your Anti-Virus application after running the above scan!
