Hi DaveinthePeg, almost done.

Please download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.

***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer before continuing!***

  • Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose English and click on Select.
  • JavaRa will open; click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
  • Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
  • A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location.

Then download and install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 11.




NEXT



Update Adobe Reader

  1. Please uninstall Adobe Reader 8.0 before installing the latest version by going to Start > Control Panel and double clicking on Add/Remove Programs. Locate Adobe Reader 8.0 and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it.
  2. Click here to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  3. Select your Windows version and click on Download. If you are using Internet Explorer, you will receive prompts. Allow the installation to be ran and it will be installed automatically for you.

    If you are using other browsers, it will prompt you to save a file. Save this file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.
  4. Close your Internet browser and open it again.




Post a new HJT log so i can see if updates are ok.

Thanks
Chuck

Hi Chuck,

When I go to download Java Runtime Environment (JRE)6 Update 11... I don't get the prompt for that but I do get one for update 12 (Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE)) Is this one ok?

Also, when I used the JavaRa program, it said it saved a JavaRa.log file on the C drive yet I can't find that file (I used the Start-Start Search)

Hi DaveinthePeg, this will be the final check.

When I go to download Java Runtime Environment (JRE)6 Update 11... I don't get the prompt for that but I do get one for update 12 (Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE)) Is this one ok?


That is ok.

Also, when I used the JavaRa program, it said it saved a JavaRa.log file on the C drive yet I can't find that file (I used the Start-Start Search)


Did you have "Enable show hidden files and folders" still enabled ??
If so try to run JavaRa program again.

Post a new HJT log

Hi Chuck,

I do have "show hidden files" enabled. I ran the JavaRa again and still no log.

When I try to download Java SE Runtime Environment 6u12 for Windows Multi-Language I get prompted:

Required Files
Windows Offline Installation

Optional Files
Windows Online Installation
Windows Kernel Installation

It wants me to choose here. What do i do?

Hi Dave, try this. This should be very simple and go smoothly.

Remove A Program Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight this Entry, if it exists, and choose Remove :

Java(TM) 6 Update 7

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into Keeping the program.

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment(JRE), and install it to your computer.
It is the 1st one on the page, called Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 12
Select Windows, multi-language, and check to agree to the license.
Download it, choose save, and save it to your desktop.
Then doubleclick it, and it will install the newest version of Java for you to use.


Let me know ?

Thanks
Chuck

Hi Dave, looks good. You may remove any tools we used in the cleaning:
Registry Search Tool
CCleaner


Since you already have Malwarebytes' installed i would keep this valuable tool. I run mine a few times a week to check my computer for anything it may have picked up.
You can continue to manually update and use MBAM as an on demand scanner.
There is also an upgrade to the paid version.
Instructions on use:
Click/open Malwarebytes' on your desk top, click the Update tab, click the box check for updates, use the option "perform quick scan".
# When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
# Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected


Congratulation you are clean !!! :cheers:

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.

  • 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 Vista 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 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.

Also, please read this great article by Tony Klein So How Did I Get Infected In First Place

Happy surfing and stay clean!

Let me know if you have read this and if no other problems we can archive this topic.
