Step # 1 Remove WildTangent

I see you are using Wild Tangent. It is not malware, but is sometimes thought to bring malware along. Wild Tangent is a video game software company specializing in online games. It has even made a partnership with AOL to include itself as part of the AOL Instant Messenger for their AIM games section. The WildTangent Web Driver is their technology that allows you to play 3D games over the Internet. Although it’s not technically considered spyware, it does have built in components to update itself and gather information about the computer system including
  • Operating System Version
  • CPU Type and Speed
  • Memory Amount
    Video Card type and Driver Version
  • Sound Card type and Driver Version
  • DirectX Version
    Location that the Web Driver was installed from
  • It is also a MAJOR resource hog.

For more information, see WildTangent Removal Instructions and Help and Inside Wild Tangent-Delivering High-End 3-D Content To A Web Site Near You.
Unless you are an extremely avid games player, I recommend you uninstall Wild Tangent: To uninstall Wild Tangent:
  • Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  • In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.

Step # 2: Add/Remove Programs

  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Remove the following old versions of Java:

  • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6

  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • From your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.


Step # 4: Download and Run ATF Cleaner

Double-click ATF Cleaner.exe to open it.

Under Main choose:

*The other boxes are optional*
Then click the Empty Selected button.

Click the Empty Selected button.

Opera:
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.


Step # 5 Run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
  • Before running a scan, click the Update tab, next click Check for Updates to download any updates, if available.
  • Next click the Scanner tab and select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

Let's do this then.

Delete the file you downloaded for Java off of your Desktop.

Then go to http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and download the Offline version to your Desktop.

Then see if you can install Java.

I'm Zante's friend. Her computer dosn't load pages very fast, so I was asked to be a messanger between you. She said that she had tried that link- nothing had happended; so I gave her the version update page's link. That hadn't work either; so I'm out of ideas. I can give her an installer, made with NSIS- will this work? The installer and files will be scanned before transferred. Thanks ^_^

You can go ahead and try that to see if it works. If not we can come back to Java later if needed.

Zante, if you haven't already please do Steps 4 and 5 from this post and post back the MalwareBytes' and a HiJackThis Log in your next post.

Unread postby km2357 » August 13th, 2008, 2:24 pm

Well here are the logs. Up first, Malware Bytes (was it supposed to be quick or a full scan?


A quick scan is just fine. :)

Your MalwareBytes' Log shows No Action Taken on what it found.

I'd like for you to run MalwareBytes' again and do the following:
  • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
  • Before running a scan, click the Update tab, next click Check for Updates to download any updates, if available.
  • Next click the Scanner tab and select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.



Step # 1 Update Adobe Acrobat Reader

There is a newer version of Adobe Acrobat Reader available. (See Note below)

  • First, go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall all previous versions.
  • Please go to this link Adobe Acrobat Reader Download Link
  • On the right Untick Adobe Phototshop Album Starter Edition if you do not wish to include this in the installation.
  • Click the Continue button
  • Click Run, and click Run again
  • Next click the Install Now button and follow the on screen prompts

Note: Adobe 9 is a large program and if you prefer a smaller program you can get Foxit 2.3 instead from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php



Step # 2: Remove Hijackthis Entries

  • Run HijackThis
  • Click on the Scan button
  • Put a check beside all of the items listed below (if present):


    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.trymedia.com (HKLM)


  • Close all open windows and browsers/email, etc...
  • Click on the "Fix Checked" button
  • When completed, close the application.


Step # 3: Run Kaspersky Online Scan

Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.

  1. Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  2. It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  3. When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  4. Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Archives
      Mail databases
  5. Click on My Computer under Scan.
  6. Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  7. You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  8. Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  9. Please post this log in your next reply.


In your next post/reply, I need to see the following:

1. MalwareBytes' Log
2 Kaspersky Log
3. A fresh HiJackThis Log
4. How is your computer doing, any problems?

Zante's friend again. She said "just forget it....." because she can't do anything without her comp freezing up. She's going to reformat her computer. If anyone could lock this thread, it would be appreciated. Thanks! And thanks for all your help, km2357 ^_^
