i chose to install the "windows" platform of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 11. is this right?
then, it shows several optional files.

i chose to install the first one on the page called Windows Offline Installation
jre-6u11-windows-i586-p.exe

i hope that is right?

Hi planetshapers, after a discussion with my teachers who check our fixes, we have desided that this "Vongo"
is a "Major" screwup by the software peddlers HP/Macrovision/Sonic/Vongo and can not fully be removed. So i appologize
for my statement that this can be removed. We won't be able to Uninstall Vongo cleanly in the normal way.
If I owned the machine, I would retrieve all my data files off the machine, and insist that HP provide a method for me to Reformat and Reinstall a fresh Windows Operating System.

With that said here is a set of instructions that may be helpful.
If you want to try it at your own risk.
http://www.techsupportforum.com/microso ... tware.html

Another possibility is if you have the original recovery partition you may be able to recover to the machine's original state, and Uninstall both Vongo and Sonic before the machine downloads any updates.
This would have to be worked with HP tech support.

We can probably find some or most of those registry entries and kill them, but we cannot be certain what will happen with the Sonic application, or that something else will not break.

But you are clean of infections. And Vongo is not an infection. I wish i could be of more help but we gave it our best shot.

===================

Congratulation you are clean !!!

You may remove RSIT and RSIT.exe from your desktop and the files.

This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

* Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
* Select Create a restore point then Next, type a name like All Clean, press the Create button. Once it's finished, press Close.
* Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr and press OK.
* Select the More options tab.
* Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.

This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.


Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTCleanIt attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.

  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows XP or Vista then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and re-enable system restore here:

    Windows XP System Restore Guide


    Re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

    • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

    • Update your AntiVirus Software and keep your other programs up-to-date
      Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
      You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
      Secunia Software Inspector
      F-secure Health Check

    • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupda ... ankspage=5 regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

    • Install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a new and powerful anti-malware tool. It is
      totally free but for real-time protection you will have to pay a small one-time fee. Tutorial on installing & using this product can be found below:

      Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Setup Guide

      Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Scanning Guide

    • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

      A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

      Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

    • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
    Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

    Here are some additional utilities that will enhance your safety


Stand Up and Be Counted ---> Malware Complaints <--- where you can make difference!

The site offers people who have been (or are) victims of malware the opportunity to document their story and, in that way, launch a complaint against the malware and the makers of the malware.

Hi planetshapers, i talked with my teacher some more and here are some sites that offer tech support. Please visit one or all and see if they can offer you some help.

Good System/Hardware Help Forums
GeekstoGo here: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windows-XP-2000-2003-NT-f5.html
or
Computer Trouble here: http://forum.computertrouble.co.uk/index.php
or
TechSupportGuy here : http://forums.techguy.org/21-windows-nt-2000-xp/

WhatTheTech Support forum: http://forums.whatthetech.com/forums.ht ... ca80c783e7

All may require you to register free before posting for help.



If he could ever get the PC back to its original "as purchased" condition, you should remove Vongo BEFORE connecting to the internet the first time. That way the broken set of files from the update would never get installed there. Possibly the F11 option he refers to can restore the original C: drive image.
My best advise is to head over to one of these forums for some serious tech support.

With that said, i wish you luck getting it back to its original state.
I am going to have this topic closed because i can't offer any more help on this matter and i can help those that are infected.

Thanks

Planetshapers,

We are very sorry we were unable to resolve the Vongo issue for you.

As it was HP that got you into this mess, it would seem that they could at least provide you with an installation disk for Windows XP. Failing that, you may also be able to purchase a disk from a reliable online vendor like Amazon.com, NewEgg.com or TigerDirect.com. I, personally, would be very reluctant to purchase an operating system via eBay as it's very possible you may end up with an invalid copy, or one without a legitimate product key. In which case, it would be completely useless.

If you are able to buy a full version of Windows XP, not an upgrade, then reformat your computer, deleting all partitions, then do a clean installation of the operating system, Vongo will not survive.

Interactive instructions for a clean installation (everything wiped out) of XP Professional and XP Home versions can be found here:

http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/wi ... _clean.asp

You would very likely need to purchase new Sonic software, or a similar software.

Your other option would be to take the system to a trusted local computer repair shop and have the job done for you there. Make sure that they understand you expect to pay for and receive a valid Windows installation disk and a valid retail product key.

Best of luck to you.

As this issue now falls outside the scope of this forum, this topic is now closed.
