(again) My comp is freaking out.

Unread postby Kosheen » January 11th, 2009, 2:15 am

1) I'm being bombarded by "Antivirus 2009" which is supposedly from Windows®.
2) My comp has been randomally shutting down and going into safemode
3) Every webpage I go to a Security warning pops up. It says "Internet Explorer Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer!"
4) I can't adjust my Windows Security Center at all. Before I used to be able to turn off firewall, updates etc. Now I can not.
5) Its obviously running like crap.


Here is the Hjt log as requested -

It is noted that you were helped here before.

It is also noted that you were asked to install an AV software to stop you getting infected again.

I (and others) have noted that you still do not have any AV software running.
Antivirus2009 would not have installed if you had an up to date AV installed like we had asked.

Do you intend to install and keep active an AV software in the future? If not it will be a waste of our time to get you clean.

Part of our 'job' is to help educate users to act more responsible with thier computers. Installing an AV software is one part of that.

Please reply before any staff member starts to help you.

Actually I DL'd "Avast" which was a recommended "Free" AV from one of the members on this board. After I can't remember how many months now its telling me I must purchase it. I went to install McAfee and its telling me that Avast is a 3rd party AV and it can not install until it is removed. I went through the usual Start >> Control Panel >> Add / Remove and clicked Avast... I get this loud screech! I went to the website linked by McAfee to DL "asw..." something and IE won't allow me to go to the site saying that its restricted. All these problems started to occur when the Avast "trial" was up. Now I can hardly do anything on my comp without it thinking for me and not allowing me any say.

If you have no other answers then I guess i'll go through with a complete wipe of my files / HD / Etc and then install McAfee. Hopefully one of your guys responds with some other route. Copying all my files and programs I'm sure will take longer than I'd like.

Thanks in advance either way. I did have an "AV" it was Avast. Unless of course thats not one?

Hello My name is Bob and I will be helping you with your issues.

The fixes we will use are specific to your problems and should only be used for this issue on this machine.

Please only use this topic to reply to. Do not start another thread.
If any other issues arise let me know.
The process is not instant.
Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear.
Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
So lets do this to the end!



  • Save and quit any work your doing before beginning the fix.
  • All hijackthis logs I ask for should be done in normal mode ( not safe mode)
  • These logs should be done last after you have followed my instructions in the previous post.
  • DO NOT be installing new programs while you run Hijackthis.
  • If I do not hear from you in 5 days from my last post this topic will be closed.


Please if you decide to seek help at another forum let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and tying 2 of us up is a waste of time.
If you have any questions about any advice given here please STOP and ask!

_______________________
Avast is a great free program.
But they do require you register it.
I suggest going here and registering it first.
Choose
I'm a new user and I need a registration key for avast! Home Edition

They will confirm with an email to you so be sure to give the correct information and save this email


Then make sure you have the free home version. Avast Pro is not free.
Avast free home edition Scroll down to the download section and choose
avast! 4 Home - English version (length 28.70 MB)
DO NOT choose avast pro.
information. Once you open that if they find you have another version of HOME edition and give you the option to repair. Do that. If it's the pro version we will have to get rid of that.


Try that and post a new HJT log and well begin getting you cleaned up. :D

First off I'd like to say Thank You guys again. I did not know that there was a Registration key that I could get by simply going to the website. I did this, but was still getting errors due to missing a "skin." I found a skin and am now ready to follow all your instructions to my best ability.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

Read all the instructions before jumping into the fix.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:

  1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

  2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

You may want to print these out or save them as a text document on your desktop as we will be going into safe mode and this page (internet ) will not be available.


________________________________________________
Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)


  • Restart your computer in safe mode:

    Heres how if you don't know . If you do know how skip this blue section.
  • During startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Options Menu should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
  • Choose your usual account.


  • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
    (Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
  • Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log

If you have used MSCONFIG to stop anything from starting up I need that undone so I can see everything in the next HJT log.
This way I can see if anything bad is not showing .

Click start/run
Type or copy in msconfig
hit enter
Go to the start up tab
Click on enable all.

Restart when your prompted to.

You computer will start a bit slower but once we have you clean you can go through again a disable what you like.

I did not have anything unchecked in Msconfig.

One issue with Avast is that when I try to run it now I'm getting an Error Message!
The message is:

Go to Start " Run " type: Services.msc " OK.
Scroll down and find these services:
AVAST AntiVirus
and
Avast control service
These two need to be set to automatic
  • Double-click on them 1 at a time..
  • Under the General tab, click the start button if the service is stopped.
  • Then as start up type click Automatic.

Reboot the machine and see if the problem goes away.
If not you may need to try and repair it.
Do this through add/remove programs and choose repair.

START -> CONTROL PANEL -> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS -> avast! Antivirus -> CHANGE/REMOVE and select REPAIR.

Again reboot the machine.

No more pop-ups from the Rogue AV thing is gone.

---------------------

Avast won't allow me to 'repair' nor will it allow me to remove / change. I get a real high pitched noise in my headphones with the Control Panel flashing on and off in the backround.

Avast Auto Updater is started and on Automatic
Avast AV is started and on Automatic
avast! iAVS4 Control Service " " " Automatic

avast! Mail Scanner & avast! Web Scanner however I started before the reboot, but when trying to change from Manual to Auto it gave me an error! I just checked them and they're both 'stopped.' I did not restart them cause I figured if I can't take it off of Manual it'll just keep going back to "stopped."

Avast when I 'restarted' said that it still had errors and gave me a thing to click. Not much I can do after clicking the little red box. It goes away.

What are your thoughts on AVG antivirus? A friend of mine says he's used the free version for roughly 5 years now and hasn't had any real big issues. If I can only get Avast to either remove or work I'd just stick with that...Would having both make things worse? I didn't want to DL anything until you said I could so don't worry there. I have not done anything different.

Thanks (again) in advance.

Yes. It certainly would. They will fight for resources, conflict with each other and provide you with much less protection.


____________________________
avast! Mail Scanner & avast! Web Scanner

Should be set to manual. They are an on demand service.
They start when you start your email client and web browser.

Give me a little time to look into it for you. I'll see if I can't figure something out.

Tell me how you removed the antivirus 2009 issue? Nothing I did showed me anything so you must have removed it yourself .
