Suspected Malware

Unread postby sjfr94 » December 30th, 2009, 7:16 pm

Hello there,

I think I have malware on my system. My computer is logging off the internet when I don't want to and I can't open certain programs sometimes and other times it will let me open the programs. I was wondering if you could check this logfile and see if anything should be fixed or removed. Thank you.

Hi,

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop. Post them back to your topic.

Hi,

Both Symantec Antivirus and Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security appear to be outdated. Do you have valid license for either of these?

Hello,
The Symantec Antivrus was downloaded by some friends of mine and the PC Cillin I purchased with the computer. The PC Cillin can be updated but I believe I must pay for an update of the Symantec Antivrus.

Hi,

You should have only one antivirus installed there. If you don't have license for Symantec Antivirus then better uninstall it. You need to update PC Cillin. Outdated antivirus program doesn't help in catching the latest infections.


Uninstall old Adobe Reader versions and get the latest one (9.2) here or get Foxit Reader here. Make sure you don't install toolbar if choose Foxit Reader! You may also check free readers introduced here.


Check here to see if your Flash is up-to-date (do it separately with each of your browsers). If not, uninstall vulnerable versions by following instructions here. Fresh version can be obtained here.


Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update to the latest version...

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 17.
  • Click the
    Download
    button to the right.
  • Select Windows on platform combobox and check the box that says:
    Accept License Agreement. Click continue.
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u17-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version. Uncheck Carbonite online backup trial if it's offered there.
