Ok, that's good news for your computer!

 

Now, here's what I think. We need to eliminate Norton. Some who do this type of work have a saying, when all else fails...remove Norton.

 

I'm going to let this part be your decision, but if you agree, I would like you to uninstall Norton completely. I suspect that something is either wrong with the product in general or your installation.

 

Sometimes is comes out easily using the Uninstall feature with Norton. If not, Symantic (makers of Norton) have a tool here that will uninstall Norton. Once it is uninstalled, then enable Defender (here is a Video).  Defender is a fine alternative until we can figure out what's what.

 

Ok, assuming Norton is out and Defender is in. I'd like you to disable Defender temporarily try and re-run aswMBR, GMER and RogueKiller (see previous instructions). Where I'm going with this is that none of these tools should cause your computer angst unless something is interfering, such as Malware (which I've not ruled out since we can't get clean runs of the tools) or some layered product (such as Norton, etc.).  

 

Let me know how this goes.

That was relatively simple...

 

Edit; I uninstalled Norton with their uninstall tool and am now running with defender.

I ran GMER first followed by aswMBR and Rogue Killer.

The GMER log looks very small.

I had a blue screen when I started aswMBR but once restarted it ran without problems.

Rogue Killer gave me a message that the version I had was out of date so I found their page online and got another one.  The link you pasted in one of your earlier replies didn’t work anymore, is that normal?

Well, that confirms it for me, Norton was holding us up. We can now finish the cleaning and then talk about Norton or other steps.

 

Let's re-visit Combofix and see how that goes. :thumbsup: 
 

51a5bf3d99e8a-ComboFixlogo16.png Scan with ComboFix

This is a very powerful tool that should be used only if advised by Malware Analyst.
Do not run ComboFix on your own!


Referring to this instruction, please download ComboFix by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
Temporary disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware protection - instructions here.

  • Right-click on 51a5bf3d99e8a-ComboFixlogo16.png icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Accept the disclaimer and agree if prompted to install Recovery Console.
  • Do not take any actions while ComboFix goes through your System - it may cause it to stall!
  • This scan may take some time!
  • When finished - it will display a logfile (located also on your main drive, usually C:\ComboFix.txt).

Include that log in your next reply.
icon_idea.gif If you'll encounter any issues with internet connection after running ComboFix, please visit this link.
icon_idea.gif If an error about operation on the key marked for deletion will appear after running the tool, please reboot your machine.

 

 

If Combofix completes without incident, then move on to Zoek. If not, stop and tell me what happens.

 

51a612a8b27e2-Zoek.png Scan with ZOEK

Please download ZOEK by Smeenk and save it to your desktop (preferred version is the *.exe one)
Temporary disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware protection - instructions here.



  • Right-click on 51a612a8b27e2-Zoek.png icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Wait patiently until the main console will appear, it may take a minute or two.
  • In the main box please paste in the following script:
    createsrpoint;
    
    process;
    
    services-list;
    
    systemspecs;
    
    startupall;
    
    skipfix-iedefaults;
    
    firefoxlook;
    
    chromelook;
    
    filesrcm;
    
    installedprogs;
  • Make sure that Scan All Users option is checked.
  • Push Run Script and wait patiently. The scan may take a couple of minutes.
  • When the scan completes, a zoek-results logfile should open in notepad.
  • If a reboot is needed, it will be opened after it. You may also find it at your main drive (usually C:\ drive)

Post its content into your next reply.

    Another easy scan, this process is so much simpler without Norton tripping everything up :-)

     

    I am not sure if this is relevant but running DelFix has improved the appearance of text in webpages, excel, word etc.  Text quality was getting progressively worse and had reached the point where small print was becoming unreadable. Although it is now significantly improved I am still seeing poor text quality (particularly when the text is bold), I can best describe it as being a lack of "sharpness" around the edges of the letters and, particularly when bold, rough edges around the top half of the letters outline.

     

     

     

    Sorry the report is in German, unfortunately it came from one of those increasingly popular websites that appear to tailor the visitors experience by identifying where the user is in the world and gives them a language "appropriate" version... want to know what frustrating is...  try using an Australian Paypal account in Germany...

     

    Anyway, here is the DelFix report.

     try using an Australian Paypal account in Germany...

     

    Uggh...being the typical American, one language is my limit and even that gives me trouble sometimes ;)

     

    Ok, it seems like we've got this machine whipped into shape. As for the Print, that's an odd one as is Delfix helping it. I'll ask around and see what my colleagues have to say.

     

    Anything else peculiar with the machine that I can help with?

    Hi

    After seeing your last post I went online and researched the font problem...

    I am not the only one experiencing this problem, it looks like it is another one of those MS update surprises.

     

    What is the view regarding reinstalling Norton?  I am not enthusiastic about defender, I have to keep an eye on it because it periodically becomes disabled, not ideal :-(

     

    Thanks for your work to date;

     

    Regards.

    Nice job of researching :thumbsup:  First skill a Helper here needs. You're well on your way :)

     

    One of my peers here found what should be the solution. Have a go at either of these.

     

    You can uninstall the update and then hide it from installing again or install the hotfix. Here.

     

     

     

    What is the view regarding reinstalling Norton?  I am not enthusiastic about defender, I have to keep an eye on it because it periodically becomes disabled, not ideal :-(

    Hmmm...Defender should never disable itself unless it sees another product doing the same job. As it is only recommended to have one a/v operating on a machine, if Defender see a second, it will disable itself. So, the question should actually be...what other a/v-ish product is running. That's my job to figure out, so I'll get back to you on that.

     

    Norton...certainly you can try it again any time you'd like. Since you know what the down side is and what trouble it can be, you'll know when you've had enough ;)   If you're not sold on Defender, consider the free version of Avast. Superior product! Free (my favorite) and works wonderfully. If you absolutely feel like you must part with your hard earned money, they have paid versions of their product that automate some of the updating, etc. of the free version. Just so you know, I run the free Avast on several of my home machines and it's does a great job. I also run Defender on several as well. I look at Defender as likely the only "free" thing Microsoft might ever give you. ;)

     

    Ok, you have the blurred characters to tend to and I'll leg out the Defender issue.

    Ok, this is what I get for trusting my aging "gray matter". Defender, when used on Vista is actually just an Anti-spyware. Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is the Anti-Virus. So, your options are, Free Download of Microsoft Security Essentials, Free Avast, or Norton or Paid Avast.

     

    For completeness, here's the full explanation. On Vista and W7, Defender is included as anti-spyware.  Once you download and install MSE (or any other A/V), Defender turns itself off and you go forward with the add-on a/v. In W8/8.1 Defender is installed and is an Anti-Virus (not just anti-spyware as with the Vista/W7 Defender). Hence, no MSE is needed (or allowed). You could leverage a different A/V and Defender would turn itself off.

     

    Sorry for the confusion!

    Hi

    The text problem is fixed, shockwave flash works again and the MS malicious software removal tool completed a full scan :-)

     

    Many thanks for your help.

     

     

    I have installed Avast free, my intinal reaction is that it is easy to install and use (but Web Shield did not get on well with windows firewall).

    I think I will leave Norton, this is the seccond time in many years that I have used norton and although it did cost some cash, (and this may just be my impression) it again has come across as resourse heavy and, well just a bit to "difficult".

     

    Regards.

    Excellent news! :thumbsup:

    Many thanks for your help.

    You are quite welcome! The pleasure was mine :)

     

     

    I have installed Avast free, my intinal reaction is that it is easy to install and use (but Web Shield did not get on well with windows firewall).

    Yes, the Vista F/W seems to be a common complaint. Now this is just me and not a recommendation, but I don't invoke an OS F/W at my house. I do though, have a router nest and that is essentially is a Firewall. It used to be that nefarious actions occurred on all sorts of odd port addresses and a F/W shored all that up. Now, the bad guys can do their worst via Ports 80 and 443. Can't really block those or the Internet becomes a fairly uninteresting experience.  I think if you make sure everything is patching and updated, practice safe computing (no P2P, no nefarious sites, etc.) use caution when opening attachments in email, etc. you should be in good shape. I'll add some further recommendations below.

    I never want to be the one that makes that conclusion, but you've come to the same conclusion that many others have. It's upsetting as you've paid for the product. However, its not serving you well, so I think you're quite right in moving on.

     

    Ok, I'm going to post my finish up text. However, I'll leave the topic open for a few days in case you have some questions. Also, I did not have you run MalwareBytes scanner, however, the instructions are below. It's a great tool to use and to hang onto. It will always find small items; tracking cookies, etc., so only be alarmed if it finds large issues feel free to ping me with questions.

     

    Last...sorry to keep pounding on this, the majors threat vectors are as follows, Java, Adobe, OS updates, Word and Excel updates. Make sure you always keep these up to date.

     

    Again, it's been a pleasure! Please stop back if you need anything :thumbsup:     :wave:

     

    Preventing Re-Infection

    An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure, so, I have listed some tips for you to stay safe on the internet in the future.

    WARNING!: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java. Have a look at this article.

    I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software. In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)

    If you still want to keep Java

    • Click the Start button
    • Click Control Panel
    • Double Click Java - Looks like a coffee cup. You may have to switch to Classical View on the upper left of the Control Panel to see it.
    • Click the Update tab
    • Click Update Now
    • Allow any updates to be downloaded and installed
    • Warning!: Make sure to uncheck Optional offer box when downloading Java or you will install an adware on your computer.

    Adobe products have to always be updated, because they also are being used to infect your computer.

    • If you want to update Adobe Flash Player, visit this site.
    • If you want to update Adobe Reader, visit this site.
    • Warning!: Make sure to uncheck Optional offer box when downloading Adobe products or you will install an adware on your computer.

    Turning on Automatic Updates is a crucial security measure. Keeping them out-of-date is like begging to get your system infected.

    • Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update
    • Under Windows Update click Turn automatic updating on or off
    • Make sure that your settings are set so that you will receive updates automatically and click OK.

    FileHippo is one of programs that can check for out-of-date programs on your computer. You can get it here

    Recommendations for security programs

    • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a new and powerful anti-malware tool. It is totally free but for real-time protection you will have to pay a small one-time fee.
    • WinPatrol as a robust security monitor, will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes a snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge.

    For some good tips about how to prevent infection in the future, visit this site.

    Hi

    I have worked through the to do list, WinPatrol Explorer is a little fun :-)

    As for java;

    I don’t see Java either in the control panel or in the Firefox Add-Ons page, should I be seeing Java listed or was that step a precaution?

     

    Regards
