HJT log included; need help with Generic!Artemis and others

Unread postby funkybunch » February 15th, 2009, 3:43 pm

Hello:
I recently plugged in my external Hard Drive and my McAfee immediately stated that it had quarantined a file that was on my external hard drive. It labeled the virus Generic!Artemis. When I finally figured out how to look at my McAfee quarantine folders, I realized that there were other quarantined files as well (on a side note, I believe that the Artemis file was a false/positive since it said that infected file was my WD hard drive's .exe file). At the suggestion of a McAfee forum helper, I ran Malwarebytes using quick scan and it found 13 infections that it said it successfully quarantined and deleted (I can post that log if the moderator so wishes). I was also instructed to run a HJT report and post the log to the wonderful people at Malware Removal. Besides the Artemis infection, some of the quarantined files were a Vundo! infection. I immediately recognized that file since about a month ago I paid McAfee to fix that issue since it had taken over my computer. It not only shut off my firewall and antivirus but continually sent me pop-ups. Although I though the problem was fixed, there are apparently still quarantined files. I am currently not experiencing any major problem with my computer except for the quarantined viruses and my notification area doesn't work. By this I mean that absolutely no notification balloons that used to pop up (in the notification area by the clock) pop up anymore, regardless of the software manufacturer (meaning not just security bulletins from Microsoft). I apologize in advance for such a lengthy post but I wanted to give you as much information as possible so that you would be able to help me. Thanks for all of your help!! HJT log is posted below:

Optional Fix

I see that Viewpoint is installed. Viewpoint, Viewpoint Manager, Viewpoint Media Player are Viewpoint components which are installed as a side effect of installing other software, most notably AOL and AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Viewpoint Manager is responsible for managing and updating Viewpoint Media Player’s components. You can disable this using the Viewpoint Manager Control Panel found in the Windows Control Panel menu. By selecting Disable auto-updating for the Viewpoint Manager -- the player will no longer attempt to check for updates. Anything that is installed without your consent is suspect. Read what Viewpoint says and make your own decision.
To provide a satisfying consumer experience and to operate effectively, the Viewpoint Media Player periodically sends information to servers at Viewpoint. Each installation of the Viewpoint Media Player is identifiable to Viewpoint via a Customer Unique Identifier (CUID), an alphanumeric identifier embedded in the Viewpoint Media Player. The Viewpoint Media Player randomly generates the CUID during installation and uses it to indicate a unique installation of the product. A CUID is never connected to a user's name, email address, or other personal contact information. CUIDs are used for the sole purpose of filtering redundant information. Each of these information exchanges occurs anonymously.

Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without user's approval but doesn't spy or do anything bad. This may change,read Viewpoint to Plunge Into Adware.

I recommend that you remove the Viewpoint products; however, decide for yourself.

To uninstall the the Viewpoint components :
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  3. In Add or Remove Programs, highlight >>Viewpoint component<< , click Remove.


    How to prevent it from being recreated every time you run the AOL software:
    • Open AOL
    • Go to Help on the toolbar
    • Select About AOL
    • Hit Ctrl D and a secret panel can be accessed which will allow you to disable all desktop and IM features associated with Viewpoint.


Download and run Combofix
This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.
ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a forum helper


Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
  • 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.

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

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
When finished, it will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.

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.
