CWShredder - When opened is fine.

I have downloaded the following 3 times:
Aboutbuster 5
Homesearchfix
Killbox

And when I open them to see if they work, the same message appears.
(The one I showed you)

The only difference is, with Homesearchfix it has a dangerous .REG file instead.

I don't know why my computer rufuses to cooperate,

Please keep trying, I know I am,

Bulaklak

Try the following:

Go into Internet Explorer>>Internet Options (On the toolbar)>>Security and make sure that the Security level for the Internet Zone is no higher than Medium.

Now try to download and open those programs.

Hi,

I am going to see if I can get one of our Forum Techs to come and fix things so you can open those files. I'll be watching from the wings and ready to do the malware part as soon as they have you up and running in that department.

If .com files work, u can try the following steps:

1) Click Start, Run and type Command (not same cmd, cmd won't run because it is an exe; Command is a com file)
Type the following and then press Enter after typing each one:
cd\windows
copy regedit.exe regedit.com (again as .exe wont work we are make a .com copy)
regedit.com

2) For .exe; Navigate to and select the following key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ exefile \ shell \ open \ command
Double-click the (Default) value in the right pane
Delete the current value data, and then type:
"%1" %* [with quotes]
(ie., quote-percent-one-quote-space-percent-asterisk.)

3) Navigate to:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe
In the right-pane, set (default) to exefile.
Now .exe should be working.

4) For .reg; Go to:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.reg
Change the value of (default) to regfile.

5) Now go to:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open\command
Change the value of (Default) to regedit.exe "%1"
(i.e. regedit.exe-quote-percent-one-quote).

6) .zip will vary according to the program U use.
Now, that .exe works re-install ur ZIP program.

When I type 'Command' in Run, the following message appears in front of a black window:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\command.com
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

[Close] [Ignore]

Should I ignore it?

Can I still follow your instructions that you sent me, or should this be finished first?

Go ahead if it is from Winzip, install killbox and do as much as you can with that.

Does the dangerous warning for the reg file say potentially dangerous, if so, ask Trevuren if you still nedd it, then run it if you do.

From his comment about your PC being in a bad way, look to get the PC to a point where you can back up uninfected files, then consider a clean install, which will definitely clear the drive of malware

It looks as if you are making good progress. A soon as you are ready, just post a reply telling me so and we will start. Due to the lapse of time that has passed since your last HJT log. I will require a fresh one because the infection has undoubtebly changed in some way and I will have to prepare a new fix.


Regards,

Im still confused in what I have to do.
I haven't done the procedure in which unplugging the internet is required yet, because of the problem of the reocurring message. And I still haven't done the procedure posted 30th July (yesterday) 8:58 AM, again because of a suspicious message.

Apart from those (which I think are the main things to be done) I have done evrything else you said.

So what shall I do now?

Yours confused :tazz: ,

I done all of what you said, except...

- Some things I could not delete on HJT, since I could not find them/they were not there.

- The second time I opened About Buster, it could not be located.

Here is my latest HJT logfile, however I could not get the Ewido report to come up
