This is my labtop but my desktop will not let me use taskmanger or use any windows programs dealing with the registry or system files. If I try to use "add or remove" it just closes just after it opens. If I try to get on this web site or any other website that helps remove malware it just closes the internet. Can any one help? Please!!!

Hello metalgearsolid,

I will be assisting you with your malware issues.

  • Whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.
  • Continue to respond to this thread until I give you the All Clean! If you have any question or you're stuck in there please reply it to me. I will try my best to help you!
  • Please bookmark or favourite this page. In case you need it as reference or etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you are using Windows Vista you must right click on the desktop icon and choose Run as Administrator all tools.
----------------------------------------------
This is my labtop but my desktop will not let me use taskmanger or use any windows programs dealing with the registry or system files. If I try to use "add or remove" it just closes just after it opens. If I try to get on this web site or any other website that helps remove malware it just closes the internet. Can any one help? Please!!!

Please transfer the tools below using a USB stick on your desktop pc, run them both, and post back a report from the 2nd one.

After running the first, try to use your desktop and tell me if you can use task manager or add/remove programs, and visit help sites.
----------------------------------------------
Download to your Desktop FixPolicies.exe, a self-extracting ZIP archive from here: http://downloads.malwareremoval.com/BillCastner/FixPolicies.exe
  • Double-click FixPolicies.exe.
  • Click the "Install" button on the bottom toolbar of the box that will open.
  • The program will create a new Folder called FixPolicies.
  • Double-click to Open the new Folder, and then double-click the file within: Fix_Policies.cmd.
  • A black box should briefly appear and then close. This will enable your Control Panel and stop the Administrative warnings, at least until the malware infection resets the registry policy keys again. You can run this as many times as you like. A permanent fix requires removing the infection.
----------------------------------------------
Download and Run HijackThis
Download HJTInstall.exe to your Desktop.

  • Doubleclick HJTInstall.exe to install it.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Copy/Paste the log to your next reply please.

Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
Don't have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hello metalgearsolid,

You will need to be patient, as we do need to transfer tool, between 2 pcs to work to clean your pc.

If you are not sure about something, please ask before proceeding.

Firstly i want you to download the tools, and transfer them on the infected pc using the USB. You might need to print my instructions or you can have the 2 pcs next to each other so you can read and follow my instructions.
----------------------------------------------
Download MsnCleaner_eng.zip

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:
A word of warning: Please do not run ComboFix on your own. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.
* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
----------------------------------------------
Now on the infected pc:

Disable Spybot's TeaTimer. This is a two step process.

Spybot S&D's tea timer normally provides real-time protection from spyware, however it may interfere with what we need to do. We will disable it until the machine is clean when it can be re-enabled.

First step:
  • Right-click the Spybot Icon in the System Tray (looks like a blue/white calendar with a padlock symbol)
  • If you have the new version 1.5, Click once on Resident Protection, then Right click the Spybot icon again and make sure Resident Protection is now Unchecked. The Spybot icon in the System tray should now be now colorless.
  • If you have Version 1.4, Click on Exit Spybot S&D Resident
Second step, For Either Version :
  • Open Spybot S&D
  • Click Mode, choose Advanced Mode
  • Go To the bottom of the Vertical Panel on the Left, Click Tools
  • then, also in left panel, click Resident shows a red/white shield.
  • If your firewall raises a question, say OK
  • In the Resident protection status frame, Uncheck the box labeled Resident "Tea-Timer"(Protection of over-all system settings) active
  • OK any prompts.
  • Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean.
----------------------------------------------
Disable Windows Defender until the computer is clean
Windows Defender normally provides real-time protection from spyware, however it may interfere with what we need to do. We will disable it until the machine is clean when it can be re-enabled.

  • Open Windows Defender
  • Select Tools and then General Settings
  • Under Real Time Protection Options uncheck Turn on real-time protection
  • Select Save
Don't forget to re-enable it, when your computer is clean.
----------------------------------------------
Go to Start-Settings-Control Panel, click on Add remove Programs. If any of the following programs are listed there, click on the program to highlight it, and click on remove. Then close the Control Panel.

    Windows AFA Internet Enhancement

If you still can't use add/remove programs you will not be able to do this.

You can try to remove it using Start > Programs > Windows AFA Internet Enhancement and use the uninstaller function if there is one.
----------------------------------------------
Do you use this program, and intentionally downloaded it?

C:\WESTWOOD\REDALERT
----------------------------------------------
FIX HIJACKTHIS ENTRIES

Open up Hijackthis.
Click on do a system scan only.
Place a checkmark next to these lines(if still present).

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId= ... yahoo.com/

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k
O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1
O9 - Extra button: fargames.com - {CDC047CC-6702-4f34-90A8-CCFA3290078A} - http://www.fargames.com/ (file missing) (HKCU)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: fargames.com - {CDC047CC-6702-4f34-90A8-CCFA3290078A} - http://www.fargames.com/ (file missing) (HKCU)
<< Do you still use fargames.com or did you remove them? If you removed them, fix these 2 lines too.

Then close all windows except Hijackthis and click Fix Checked
Close HijackThis.
----------------------------------------------
Using Windows Explore by right-clicking the Start button and left clicking Explore navigate to and find the following files: if found, delete the following (some may not be present after previous steps):

C:\WINDOWS\VCMnet11.exe
----------------------------------------------
Use MsnCleaner
  • Unzip it to your desktop, but don't use it yet.
  • Print out these instructions or save them into a notepad on your desktop, because you will not have internet access while in Safe Mode.
  • Go in Safe Mode by restarting your computer, then continually tapping F8 until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.
  • Double-click MsnCleaner_eng.exe to run it.
  • Click the Analyze button.
  • A report will be created once after you finish scan.
  • If it finds an infection, click the Deleted button.
  • Now, please reboot back to normal mode.
  • Please post the contents of C:\MsnCleaner.txt in a reply to this post.
----------------------------------------------
Use Combofix

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
  • See this topic if you need help to disable your protection programs.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Image

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Image

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply along with a HijackThis log so we can continue cleaning the system.
----------------------------------------------
If after using these 2 tools, you still can't access task manager and add/remove programs, run FixPolicies.exe again.
----------------------------------------------
Post back:
Msn cleaner report.
Combofix report.
A new HijackThis log.
Let me know if you have access to other sites, and are able to use task manager and add/remove programs again, or whenever this is possible.

Thanks, but I can not acess anything on my system tray, so I could not disable the tea timer. I tried to uninstall it but it doesn't come up, so I deleted and I will install it later. I got windows defender to disable, but I could not remove windows afa internet enhancment. I installed C:\WESTWOOD\REDALERT should I remove it? It is a dos game. With hijackthis I removed all but two, R1 and 07 the regristry won't let it to remove it. I did delete C:\WINDOWS\VCMnet11.exe. I went on safe mode and clicked on msnclearer and it just disapeared off of the desk top. I didn't run combo fix I want to hear what you say. What do you think about this? What now?

Hello metargearsolid,

R1 and 07 the regristry won't let it to remove it. I did delete C:\WINDOWS\VCMnet11.exe. I went on safe mode and clicked on msnclearer and it just disapeared off of the desk top. I didn't run combo fix I want to hear what you say. What do you think about this? What now?

Do you get any message when you try to fix R1 and 07 lines?
Try removing R1 and 07 lines in safe mode. Close all windows before trying.

Did you unzip msncleaner?
Can you see if it is in Recycle-Bin or if you have this file on your C: drive?

C:\MsnCleaner.txt

You can find where MsnCleaner is using Start > Search for Files and Folders, type there: MsnCleaner and click on search.
Let your pc find it. See where it is. If it's still zipped you have to unzip it before using it.

I could not remove windows afa internet enhancment

Do you mean there is no uninstaller?
If there is an uninstaller try it in safe mode too.

Do not run Combofix yet.
Let me know the results for the above.
Also do you come on line with the infected pc now?

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.
