Ok, so slight problem. I downloaded and installed the malwarebytes program, but when I double-click the icon, it doesn't open. I tried re-installing it, and checked the box to "run" the program when finished, and still, nothing happened.

Any ideas?

Please download and try running this: randmbam.exe

It will try to create random names and shortcuts for MBAM if you have it installed already. If this does not work we will try something else.

    Please create a BOOTLOG
  • Restart the computer and press F8 when Windows start booting. This will bring up the startup options.
  • Select "Enable Boot Logging" option and press enter.
  • Windows prompts you to select a Windows Installation (even if there is only one windows installation)
  • This boots windows normally and creates a boot log named ntbtlog.txt and saves it to C:\Windows

    If you're already running inside Windows you can enable it the following way.
  • Click on START - RUN and type in MSCONFIG go to the BOOT.INI tab and place a check mark by /BOOTLOG
  • Click on OK and you will be prompted to RESTART Windows. Please do restart now.
  • After Windows restarts open the file C:\Windows\ntbtlog.txt with Notepad
  • From the Edit menu choose Select All then Edit, COPY and post that back on your next reply.
  • If the file is over about 150 lines or so then DELETE the C:\Windows\ntbtlog.txt file and restart the computer and post the NEW one it creates.
  • Note: Vista users can type in the Search and it will show on the menu, then Right click and choose Run as Adminsitrator
  • The tab is called BOOT on Vista. Then choose Boot log


RootRepeal - Rootkit Detector
  • Please download the following tool: RootRepeal - Rootkit Detector
  • Direct download link is here: RootRepeal.rar
  • If you don't already have a program to open a .RAR compressed file you can download a trial version from here: WinRAR
  • Extract the program file to a new folder such as C:\RootRepeal
  • Run the program RootRepeal.exe and go to the REPORT tab and click on the Scan button
  • Select ALL of the checkboxes and then click OK and it will start scanning your system.
  • If you have multiple drives you only need to check the C: drive or the one Windows is installed on.
  • When done, click on Save Report
  • Save it to the same location where you ran it from, such as C:\RootRepeal
  • Save it as your_name_rootrepeal.txt - where your_name is your forum name
  • This makes it more easy to track who the log belongs to.
  • Then open that log and select all and copy/paste it back on your next reply please.
  • Quit the RootRepeal program.

Create a NEW folder on your Desktop named: BadFiles


Start Root Repeal and click on the Drivers tab and then click the Scan button.
Then right click on this file: gaopdxwmdbymsnswwkthxxnkjppbvdvymggwqp.sys and select Dump File
This will bring up a Dump to file dialog box. Browse or select your Desktop where you created the BadFiles folder.
Then type in the name gaopdxwmdbymsnswwkthxxnkjppbvdvymggwqp.sys and save it in that folder.
You can quit Root Repeal now.

Then zip up that file and upload it to: uploads.malwarebytes.org

How To Use Compressed (Zipped) Folders in Windows XP
Compress and uncompress files (zip files) in Vista


Start Root Repeal again and click on the Drivers tab and then click the Scan button.
Then right click on this file: gaopdxwmdbymsnswwkthxxnkjppbvdvymggwqp.sys Next right mouse click on it and select *wipe file* option only then immediately reboot the computer.

Now scan with malwarebytes again quick scan

I tried to save the file after I clicked on "dump file" but when I go to that file folder, there's nothing in it. I set my folder options to show hidden files and it's still not there, and when I click on the "Badfiles" folder properties, it says there are no files in it, and that it is 0 bytes.

I will hold off on completing the remainder of your instructions until I receive word from you on what the next step is.

Thanks.
