IE Defender?

Unread postby MattVB07 » July 31st, 2008, 12:23 pm

Hi,

I was having some malware problems that mostly seem to be fixed (ran ATF Cleaner, then Windows Defender, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware programs). I can now access these websites, run these programs, etc..so we have progress.

I think my next steps are ComboFix and SmitFraud. But, I'm still getting IE Defender messages from Norton AV. I tried running the FixIEDef program, but it crashes about 60% of the way through with the following error: "AutoIt Error Line -1 Error: Variable must be of type "Object"."

I ran a HiJack this (log below), but I don't see anything in there that looks like IEDefender. How can I be sure that nasty thing is gone for good?

Hi MattVB07

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.
  1. Close all applications and windows.
  2. Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
  3. When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt<-this one will be minimized
  4. Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt and the extra.txt to your post.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
