Hi thryroidnos,

Ok here are two more logs...this is one long fix


It is more than just a fix. We like to be thorough. Thanks for your patience. :)

Please let me know if you are still experiencing any issues.


Uninstall ComboFix

Click Start, click Run..., copy the below bolded text and paste it in the Open: box and click OK.

ComboFix /Uninstall

ComboFix will uninstall and clean up after itself.


OTC

Click Here to download OTC by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click OTC.exe
  • Click the CleanUp! button
  • Select Yes when the Begin cleanup Process? prompt appears
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself


Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.

Delete GMER file
After OTC reboot, delete the randomly named GMER .exe file from your desktop if it still exists. It looks like this Image


Your logs are clean!


Implementing the following suggestions will greatly reduce your chances of malware problems in the future.

Update Windows

It is important to keep Windows and Microsoft programs updated to close vulnerabilities as they are discovered.

I suggest that you occasionally visit Microsoft Update and install all important updates. Please visit Microsoft Update as soon as possible as described below.

Close all windows and temporarily disable your anti-virus (usually through a tray icon)

Use Internet Explorer to visit this site: http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-US

Once the page loads follow instructions to install all critical updates. You may need to repeat this process until fully updated.


Keep installed programs up to date

Anti-virus
Most important is keeping your anti-virus software up to date. An out of date anti-virus is not much better than no anti-virus. If your anti-virus is not set to update automatically (preferred), it is imperative that you occasionally update it manually. You usually can accomplish this through a tray icon.

Update Other Vulnerable Software
Malware writers are increasingly targeting vulnerabilities in commonly used applications. There are several online sites which will scan your computer for outdated software. I've listed two below. I recommend occasionally visiting and scanning your computer to detect vulnerable software that should be updated.
F-Secure Health Check - requires Internet Explorer
Secunia Online Software Inspector


Best Practices for Email and Downloaded Files.

  • Do not read emails from unknown sources.
  • Make it a habit to never open email attachments from anyone, including people you know, unless you absolutely have to. If you need to open an attachment, scan it with your anti-virus before you open it.
  • Do not use Peer to Peer software to "share" media and software. You will get more than you expected and the "bonus" will not be something you want and will bring you back seeking help.
  • Do not use keygens or hacked software. First, it is stealing. Second, it is almost always infected with something. If you cannot afford to buy something, there is likely a free alternative that will be a good substitute. Search around and seek out advice from a trusted forum. Most will be glad to tell you of their favorite free program that performs the job you want done.


Additional Protection Programs

The programs listed below are excellent for improving your computer's security.

WinPatrol by Bill Pytlovany - "WinPatrol is a multi-purpose utility designed to increase performance and protect against unwanted changes." Information on it's many features can be found here

MVPS Hosts file - A replacement HOSTS file that redirects known malicious and ad serving sites to the localhost, thus preventing connection to them.
Note: MVPS Hosts file can sometimes slow down the computer so read the information on the site to mitigate this effect.

I encourage you to check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"
and miekiemoes' article "How to prevent Malware:"

If you have any questions about these suggestions, I would be happy to answer them.

Regards,
shinybeast

I'd be grateful if you could reply to this post so that I know you have read it and, if you've no other questions, the thread can be closed.

Hi thyroidnos,

Sorry to hear the computer had a bit of a fit.

Did it run really slow from boot? Did it run OK the night before? What, if anything, were you doing with the computer immediately before it went downhill?

Yes, very strange. Barring any changes to the operating system or installed programs, I would suspect a piece of hardware was acting up.

Hopefully things run smooth from here on out.

Stay safe,
