localpages and other malware pop-ups

Unread postby saras2010 » December 20th, 2010, 6:36 pm

localpages.com and defender pop-ups that won't disable or stop, started about a week and half ago - no matter what I do. I have Symantec anti-virus and scans haven't detected the problem. I read a previous thread and tried to find p2p's you mentioned before by searching appwiz.cpl ... couldn't find any from their list.

_________________________________
Welcome to the Forums.

The fixes we will use are specific to your problems and should only be used for this issue on this machine.

Please only use this topic to reply to. Do not start another thread.
If any other issues arise let me know.
The process is not instant.
Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear.
Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
So lets do this to the end!



  • Save and quit any work your doing before beginning the fix.
  • All hijackthis logs I ask for should be done in normal mode ( not safe mode)
  • These logs should be done last after you have followed my instructions in the previous post.
  • DO NOT be installing new programs while we are fixing this machine.
  • Be sure to use the subscribe button to receive notification by Email that you have been replied to.
    If I do not hear from you in 3 days from my last post this topic will be closed. You will need to start another.


Please if you decide to seek help at another forum let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and tying 2 of us up is a waste of time.
If you have any questions about any advice given here please STOP and ask!


NOTE to Vista and windows 7 users:
For any tool I ask you to run you will need to "right click on it and choose
"Run as Administrator"



___________________________________________
Uninstall Programs
Start/control panelPrograms and Features[/b] ;
And Uninstall

Gamevancer



_____________________________________________
Download and Run Temp File Cleaner (TFC.exe)
Download Temp File Cleaner and save it to your desktop.
Double click to run it. (Right click and choose Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7)
If you have a lot of junk files to remove, it could take a while, so please be patient and let it finish.
When it's done, if it asks to Reboot, choose to do so. This will remove files that could not be removed while Windows was running.
After Restart, log back in to your usual account.

_________________________________
Please download and save SecurityCheck.exe to your Desktop from one of the links below.

Link 1
Link 2

  • Right click and choose run as administrator SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt
  • Please post the contents of that document in your next reply.


_____________________________________________
RSIT
  • Download Random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Right click and choose run as administrator RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)


This log will also produce a Hijackthis log so NO reason to post one of those.



I see a program called center in your uninstall list. Can you tell me what it is and where you may have gotten it ?


_________________________
In your next reply I would like to see:
  • The report from RSIT
  • The log from Security check
  • Tell me about that program ( center)

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.
