Attached File  first mbam-log-2010-10-20 (17-59-38) for geekstogo.txt   1016bytes   76 downloads Earlier I posted a topic on the forum using the click on this link from the "Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide" page but the topic did not display in the forum. I've followed the instructions on that page where it said to download "MALWAREBYTES" which I've already had on the computer before and was used to run a scan on 2010/10/20 which came up with a log file that I'm including here as an attachment. The log file mentioned that "Files Infected:
C:\Documents and Settings\USER-F1806\Application Data\dsfsds.bat (Malware.Trace) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully."

My computer still has the problems I've mentioned earlier. Could this quarantined file possible hold the key to the problem? Since I didn't see my topic posted earlier, I am reposting it now.

Unknown Malware Disabled Scheduled Tasks

Please help me fix my computer. How can I determine what specific malware has caused it and fix the problem? There aren't any warning pop-ups appearing regarding viruses, trojans, or any other malware anymore but most of the functions still won't go through. The warning pop-ups only appeared once and that was when it said that trojans have been detected by firefox. The pop-up said that since a trojan was found it had stopped the page from loading further and had an "OK" button option. So I clicked on it since no other options were available and the pop-up prevented me from navigating away immediately from the website.

I've already ran the MRT (Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool ver. 3.12.4202.0) and have even logged into Microsoft's online Malicious Software Removal Scan but still my computer is acting up the same way. The symptoms I'm experiencing are as follows:

1. Whenever I log into my computer, it always asks me for an administrator's password which I haven't set-up and wasn't even set-up to appear as a dialogue box at set-up in the first place. Clicking on the "OK" option logs me in though, even without providing any password but this task hasn't been set-up before to begin with.

2. A pop-up appears immediately after which says "Some tasks did not execute at their scheduled times because the Task Scheduler Service was not running. You can view the list of missed tasks, and attempt to run them again from within the
scheduled tasks folder." When I did that and accessed the scheduled tasks folder, the task scheduler icon showed that has been turned into a link file (.LNK) and is now only 2 KB in size. Clicking on the icon opens my web browser and directs me to this page.."http://thesoftwarece...6564207461736b7
32e6c6e6b&desc=~~~6c6e6b66696c65" and there weren't any info options on that page, just a bunch of links for products being sold.

3. When I click on the shortcuts in the desktop, quick launch toolbar of the taskbar, and even in the start menu, a pop-up message appears which says "This file doesn't have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel." when I do that, it still comes up with the same pop-up message.

4. A pop-up appears when anti-malware software is being run that says "Windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." then after acknowledging the message, any application that is
running will refresh it's screen. Other application even get turned off.

other symptoms observed are as follows:

1. A lot of files have been changed to link files (.LNK)
2. Most control panel icons/tasks in the main screen of the control panel cannot be accessed.
3. MS Dos prompt cannot be accessed.
4. Icons in desktop and other locations have been replaced with a generic icon.
5. Many other programs, files, and applications cannot be accessed anymore even through the use MS Dos command prompt and are only needs accessible through the use of the "boost with advanced system care" option which appears in the dropdown selection when you right click on the icon of a function and not all functions have this option either, some functions will only display this option if the functions' icon is accessed through its own folder and only after having to run it first through the context menu manager.

Those are all the symptoms which I have observed and remembered. I can still log-on to windows, surf the web, and even access the task manager but the conditions keep worsening every day. Please help me fix this problem. Thank you.

If anyone can help me, please do so? Thank you.
