About a month or so ago, I started getting bogus "PC security alert" type viruses. I thought I'd gotten rid of it using HJT but it keeps popping up. Not as bad as initially. But there's something there. This is my latest log. Anything look suspicious?

Thanks.

Hi Rico,

Welcome to the forum.

My nickname is deltalima and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.

Please note the following:
  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If after 3 days you have not responded to this topic, it will be closed, and you will need to start a new one.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

I see the process C:\ICS\NewFrontend\ICSFrontend.exe running on the computer. This seems to be a life insurance illustration system that is able to produce attractive and customized sales proposals using products underwritten by the National Life Insurance Company and so would imply that this computer is used for business purposes.

Please let me know if the computer is used for personal or for business use.

Hi Rico,

Business Use Computer
Unfortunately, we cannot help remove malware from a computer, used for business purposes.
Many of these type systems may have specific modifications made..which could be removed or damaged by the tools we use. These altered systems may also hinder our tools, possibly reducing their effectiveness in removing the malware.
An extract taken from the Malware Removal's rules posted at the top of the Malware Removal forum:
Malware Removal Administration wrote:Computers used in a business environment often have policies and other modifications made to them. It is impossible for us to differentiate these from ones that have been made by an infection, so in removing what we think is an infection, we may compromise the business set up of your computer.

The scans we run often reveal information that most businesses would not want exposed in an open forum, and there are other legal constraints and ramifications involved with business machines that we are not equipped or trained to deal with.

We will close any topic where we believe the computer is one that is used in a business environment, irrespective of whether that business is a large company or a small one man enterprise.
For a corporate or multi-computer business:
I strongly advise that you contact your IT department. Make them aware of the problems you are having. If your computer is infected (possibly others as well), your IT department needs to be aware of this, so they can devise a plan to minimize any business impact.
For a single computer used for business purposes:
I would advise your contract an individual or firm to deal with any computer problems.

I'm sorry, that I am not able to offer you more assistance. Thank you, for your understanding in this matter.
I will now ask for this topic to be closed.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

The section Posting for help for business machines explains why we do not offer help for such computers.

This topic is now closed
