You should download and install the newest version of the free Adobe Reader for reading pdf files, due to vulnerabilities in earlier versions of reader and acrobat.
All versions numbered lower than 9.2 are vulnerable.
  • Click here to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 9.2).
  • Select your Windows version and click on Download. Save this file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.

If you prefer a simple reader, without plug-ins, that is smaller and faster, take a look at the free Foxit Reader here : http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php

You can keep your full version of Adobe Acrobat 7, but you should use it for editing and creation of pdf's only, NOT for opening pdf's on the net.
You can still call Adobe Acrobat 7 from Start, All Programs

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

[list][*]Open Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and click on the Update Tab
[*]Click Check for Updates
[*]If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
[*]Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick scan, then click Scan.

The scan completed and then a log opened automatically - I couldn't see anywhere to 'show results'
However there are two items in quarantine. A trojan.proxy at c:\program files\tinyproxy and hijack.homepage at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\Homepage [Data:1]

Illegal Software Detected
While going through your log it has come to my attention that your version of Dreamweaver CS3 is cracked. Although it seems like you may not have this software anymore.
This forum's policy says we will not help people who use cracked or pirated software.

More information:
Illegal Copies of Software

If you still want me to help you I suggest you purchase a legal copy of the software or remove the cracked software from your computer.
NOTE: If you give me advice that the software has been removed & I find it has not (the tools we use can & will detect it) then I will have no choice but to have this thread closed.
Please decide what you are going to do & let me know.

I recommend that you follow the instructions below:

Uninstall programs

  • First, Click on Start > Control Panel
  • Next, Click on Add or Remove Programs
  • Wait for the list of programs to load
  • Locate the following programs and click Remove
    Dreamweaver CS3 (If present)
  • Follow the prompts of the uninstaller to uninstall/remove the program
  • Once all of the above have been uninstalled, please close Add/Remove Programs

  • In Symantec AntiVirus, in the left pane, click View.
  • In the right pane, click Quarantine.
  • Select tinyproxy.exe, DWHCD7F.tmp, and keygen.exe in the list of quarantined items.
  • Right-click the files, and then click Delete Permanently.
  • In the Take Action dialog box, click Start Delete.
  • Click Close.

Run OTM
  • Double-click on OTM.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the lines in the codebox below.
  • Copy the lines in the codebox below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):
    Code: Select all
    :files
    C:\Users\PECL-31-01-08\Documents\Personal\Dreamweaver CS3
    C:\Program Files\tinyproxy
    :commands
    [emptytemp]
    
  • Return to OTM, right click in the Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
  • If you are not asked to reboot close OTM.
  • A log C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles\mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log will be created (where mmddyyyy_hhmmss are numbers giving date and time the log was created).

Please re-run Kaspersky Online Scan.

Please post the Kaspersky Online Scan log and the OTM log.

Due to a 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.
