Hello glostagal,

You said "after you run combofix" but - was I supposed to run it again? Let me know if so because I didn't. Thanks again, Glostagal

No, you shouldn't run it again. When i posted latest time to run CF-Script, i also wanted a new HijackThis log, after running CF-Script. You posted one before running CF-Script, as you wanted to ask this:
I will run the rest of the process when you confirm that disabling OAS (leaving the icon in system tray) is OK. THANKS!!!

The one you posted before running CF-Script stilll had the infection which CF-Script removed.
So i needed the new one. ;)

Does symantec still gives you warnings?

Hello glostagal,

I will send you to your Registry in an attempt to fix that error.
Please follow my steps very carefully.
In case something goes wrong, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe as mentioned below in red.
----------------------------------------------
Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link to download ERUNT
  • Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note:to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe
----------------------------------------------
1. Click Start, and then click Run. The Run dialog box appears.
2. Type regedit and then click OK. The Registry Editor opens.
3. Navigate to the key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers

4. In the right pane, double-click the VDD value. The Edit Binary Value dialog box opens.
5. Select the contents of the Value data box, ant then press Delete. There may be four zeros that cannot be deleted.
6. Click OK, and then Exit the Registry Editor.

After you do this, and everything is ok, reboot your pc, and retry to install and run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
Let me know what happened.

Hi There,

I did as you said - I installed the ERDNT tool, backed up my registry, edited the key, rebooted, installed and updated the antimalware tool.

THEN when I performed the full scan, I got a blue screen of death - yikes. It said "a problem has been detected and windows is shutting down to protect your computer." What now?

Also, I am having a problem with updating macafee - when I go to update it, I get a message that says

"failed to initialize common updater system. make sure macafee framework svc is running. macafee common framework returned error 80040154 @ 1"

I recognize this error - this is what I was getting when I was FIRST infected. As I said in my very first post, before I ever contacted you, I installed and ran superantispyware, which resolved this problem - at least for a time.

Thanks, GG

Hi glostagal,

So you were not able to run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?
If you did post the report.

Read hereabout the McAfee error you get.

Remember if something goes wrong you can use the ERUNT.exe backup you created.

I recognize this error - this is what I was getting when I was FIRST infected. As I said in my very first post, before I ever contacted you, I installed and ran superantispyware, which resolved this problem - at least for a time.

In my opinion this has nothing to do with malware.

Let me know if everything is ok after you follow those steps.

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.
