Subject: Vista Smart Security 2010 - Ave.exe

Unread postby Elliot » April 28th, 2010, 4:15 pm

My computer has been infected with “Vista Smart Security 2010.” It is creating a process called Ave.exe, whenever I open any executable file. I have been killing that process manually with Windows Task Manager. This malware is creating pop ups to sell me the malware fix. My computer was infected last night, about 16 hours ago (on 4/27/10 Tuesday about 8:30 PM).

It is also preventing my opening many programs, i.e. Office, and blocking tool downloads from Trend Micro. However, I have gotten past that by quickly ending the process Ave.exe with Windows Task Manager.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium with SP2 updates. My main browser is Firefox, but I use Internet Explorer and others sometimes.

System Cleaner could not reach this malware.

I am pasting my HijackThis log (as a Notepad file hijackthis.log). The HijackThis log was created at approximately 9:30 AM today, 4/28/10 Wednesday.

I am also pasting my Uninstall List (as a Notepad file uninstall_list.txt). The Uninstall List was created about noon today.

These files look suspicious to me and they are all created since this intrusion and are located in my directory C:\Users\Elliot\AppData\Local
U8yYP41Rt, 768409850 - these are both 12 KB System files
d3d9caps.dat - this is a 2 KB DAT file
ave.exe - this is a 202 KB Application file

Any help is appreciated.

Elliot

I screwed around with trying to remove this malware for 17 hours.

It got worse when a trend micro told me there would be no problem removing The file Ave.exe file. BAD MOVE. Do not do that.

Everything stopped working. I gave up and paid Trend Micro $87 plus tax to fix it. Their engineer took over my computer. An hour an a half later, it was fixed.

I wish there was a tool to fix this.

I am ok now.
