Cypher,

With regard to deleting the malware icon from the system tray, I can't seem to do it. It doesn't show up in /start/all programs, it doesn't appear in control panel add/remove programs and a right click on the icon only gives me the chance to delete, only "open" or go to "Microsoft Security Center." As it is presently disabled, I don't want to do anything to wake it up until we get the threats eliminated. There appear to be 19 of them, as you will see from the log file listing below. The computer seems to be working normally at the moment.

Hi Denske.
What the ESET scan found will be dealt with later when i give you final instructions.
That just leaves us with the system tray icon.
Please check the folder below and see if XP Security 2011 is listed, if it is delete it then reboot your computer.

Hi Cypher,

Good news/bad news. Well, mostly good, I think.

The file was buried quite a bit deeper than you suggested, but I found it deleted and then rebooted. The interesting thing is that the disabled icon still appears in the system tray, but the file still appears to be gone, so that's good. Anyway, I think I'm ready for the next step.

Hi Denske.
The interesting thing is that the disabled icon still appears in the system tray.

Lets try the following to see if we can disable it.

Please download CCleaner from Here and save it to your Desktop.
When the file has been saved, go to your Desktop and double-click on ccsetupxxx_
Follow the prompts to install the program.

Now launch CCleaner and click Tools > Sartup.
Highlight the offending icon in the list and click Disable then reboot your computer.
Let me know if that worked.
You can keep CCleaner to clean out temp files.
CAUTION: Please do NOT use the "Registry" button in the left pane.
This is a built-in registry cleaner. Removing certain entries can render your computer inoperable!

Cypher,

I downloaded, installed and ran CCleaner, but I don't see what you described in your last post.

The program is version 3.05.1408.

When I run it and click on tools > startup, the window that opens does not include icons. It is a list of programs, none of which look like the "security" malware. There is an option to create a text file, so I did that and am pasting it below. I have a screen shot showing the open CCleaner window and the icon in the system tray if you want me to send it.

Hi, Cypher,

Screenshot is attached. It includes the open CCleaner window showing what I described in the previous post.

The offending icon is the shield-shaped one between the wi-fi and the bluetooth icons. When it was active it had Windows-like colors. Now if I stop the cursor arrow over it a label opens: "Windows Security Alerts." If I right-click on it the label says:

Open Security Center
Go to Microsoft Security Web Site

Cypher,

It seems that everything ends up more complicated than expected. This link http://mbam.malwarebytes.org/program/random.php (copied from your post) yielded a "Not Found" page. Does it matter that the new Malwarebytes comes from a particular link or can I get it from the Malwarebytes site?

Hi Denske.
Let me know if the tray icon is still there after doing the following.

SC Reset:

  • Open Notepad.
  • Copy and Paste everything from the Code Box below into Notepad: <-- Start >> Run... type in notepad and select OK
  • Do not include the word Code:
Code: Select all
net stop winmgmt
rd %systemroot%\system32\wbem\repository
net start winmgmt
  • Go to File >> Save As
  • Save File name as "reset.bat" <-- Make sure to include the quotes.
  • Change Save as Type to All Files and save the file to your Desktop.

Double click on reset.bat. A command window will open, when prompted type in Y then hit the enter/return key.

When completed the command window will close. Reboot your computer. <-- Make sure you do this.

Hi, Cypher,

Another goodnews/badnews story.

When I ran the "reset.bat" file it made the shield icon in the system tray disappear, but when I shut down the computer and then rebooted, it was back again. Still disabled.

By the way, the intended attachment of the screenshot didn't work a few posts back because the file was too large. I think you probably know what shield I have been talking about (judging by the reset batch file) but the attached .jpg will show you what I am seeing in the tray.
