Hello... Welcome to the forum.
I apologize for the delay getting to your log, the forum is very busy.

My name is Wingman, and I'll be helping you with any malware problems.
The logs I request can take a while to research, so please be patient.

I am currently under the guidance of the MRU teachers, everything I post to you, has been reviewed by them.
This additional review process can add some extra time to my responses...but not too much
.
;)

Before we begin...please read and follow these important guidelines, so things will proceed smoothly.
  1. The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable!
  2. DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  3. DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process. This adds more items to be researched.
  4. Only- post your problem at (1) one help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  5. Print each set of instructions...if possible...your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  6. Only- reply to this thread, do not start another ... Please, continue responding, until I give you the "All Clean"

I am currently reviewing your log and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions. In the meantime...
Please take time to read the Malware Removal Forum Guidelines and Rules where the conditions for receiving help at this forum are explained.

Please read all instructions carefully before executing and perform the steps, in the order given.
lf, you have any questions or problems, executing these instructions, <<STOP>> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem.

Step 1.
HJT - Uninstall Manager Log
    Please run HijackThis
      If you are on the "scan & fix stuff" page... Press the "Main Menu"...button.
  1. From the Main Menu...Press the "Open the Misc Tools"...button.
  2. Press the "Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  3. Press only the Save List...button.
  4. Press the "Save" button. The file "uninstall_list.txt" will be saved in your HJT folder.
  5. Copy and paste the contents of "uninstall_list.txt' in your next reply.

Step 2.
Please include in your next reply:
  1. HJT uninstall_list.txt file contents
Thanks,
Wingman

Hello Garna,

Please provide the Uninstall list I requested but do so by following the instructions (Step 4.) below.

Please tell me what kind of problems or symptoms are (were) you having with the computer, that caused you to look for help removing malware. Providing this kind of detail can aid in a quicker diagnosis and cleaning of your computer.

Please do not make any changes to your system, run any "fix" programs and/or remove any files unless instructed to do so, by me.

Please read these instructions carefully before executing and then perform the steps, in the order given. lf, you have any questions or problems, executing these instructions, <<STOP>> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem.

Step 1.
P2P Advisory!
IMPORTANT There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs installed on your computer.
uTorrent

As long as you have the P2P program(s) installed, per Forum Policy, I can offer you no further assitance.
If you choose NOT to remove the program(s)...indicate that in your next reply and this topic will be closed.
Otherwise, please perform the following steps:
Remove P2P Program(s)
  1. Click on Start > Control Panel and double click on Add/Remove Programs.
  2. Locate the following program:
    uTorrent
  3. Click on the Change/Remove button to uninstall it.
    Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each program listed.
  4. When the program(s) have been uninstalled... Close Add/Remove Programs. Close Control Panel.

By using any form of P2P networking to download files you can anticipate infestations of malware to occur. The P2P program
itself, may be safe but the files may not... use P2P at your own risk! Keep in mind that this practice may be the source of your current malware infestation.
References... siting risk factors, using P2P programs: Malware: Help prevent the Infection and How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

Step2.
PunkBuster warning
I noticed you have PunkBuster installed... read the "Published features" section.
PunkBuster can take control over various aspects of your computer and some gaming tools not unlike PunkBuster, also hinder their removals.
By the definition we use, PunkBuster is actual spyware. Therefore, I'm asking you to choose one of the following options:
  1. We "try" to leave PunkBuster alone... however, there is no guarantee a spyware component doesn't "inadvertently" get taken out... so PunkBuster might fail. This will also prevent you from playing games using PunkBuster enabled servers.
  2. We can just remove PunkBuster. You can reinstall it afterwards if you wish, but please keep in mind that it is spyware.
  3. We can not clean this computer at all. This ensures PunkBuster will continue to function.
If you choose to remove PunkBuster, please perform the uninstall steps below. Otherwise, let me know what other option you chose.

Uninstall PunkBuster
Please download PBSVC Setup Program. Save it to your desktop.
  1. Double click on pbsvc.exe to start it... then click Uninstall.
    Once that's finished...
  2. Click Start > Run and copy and paste the following into the open text box:
    Code: Select all
    cmd /c for %i in (A B K) do sc delete PnkBstr%i
  3. Click OK. A black box will flash very briefly, this is normal.
  4. Double click My Computer on your desktop and browse to C:\windows\system32\drivers
  5. Locate the file: PnkBstrK.sys... if found delete it.
Let me know if you performed these steps successfully.

Step 3.
Post a New HJT Log
  1. Start HijackThis. Located in: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\hijackthis.exe
    If you are on the "scan & fix stuff" page... Press the "Main Menu"...button.
  2. From the Main Menu... Press the "Do System Scan and Save a Log File"...button.
    When completed...Notepad will open with the new "hijackthis.log" file contents.
Copy/paste the entire (hijackthis.log) file contents in your next reply.

Step 4.
HJT - Uninstall Manager Log
  1. Please Run HijackThis. Located in: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\hijackthis.exe
      If you are on the "scan & fix stuff" page... Press the "Main Menu"...button.
  2. From the Main Menu...Press the "Open the Misc Tools"...button.
  3. Press the "Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  4. Press only the Save List...button.
  5. Press the "Save" button. The file "uninstall_list.txt" will be saved in your HJT folder.
  6. Copy and Paste the contents of "uninstall_list.txt' in your next reply.

Step 5.
Please include in your next reply:
  1. Any problem executing the instructions?
  2. New HJT log
  3. PunkBuster uninstalled? If not,what other option?
  4. How is the computer behaving?
Thanks,
Wingman
