Hello AsahiBeer,

Your machine running normal... sounds good. ;) I'd like to get some final scans run, before I let you go...

Step 1.
ERUNT - Emergency Recovery Utility NT
Please run this again, as changes may have occurred between the last run and now. Better to be safe than to be sorry.
Modifying the Registry can create unforeseen problems, so it's always wise to create a backup before doing so.
Run:
  1. Please navigate to Start >> All Programs >> ERUNT... double-click ERUNT from the menu.
    VISTA - W7 users: right-click on ERUNT from the menu, select "Run As Administrator", to run the process.
  2. Click on OK within the pop-up menu.
  3. In the next menu under C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT\DD-MM-YYYY under Backup options make sure both the following are selected:
    • System registry.
    • Current user registry.
  4. Next click on "OK"... at the prompt... reply "Yes".
    After a short duration the Registry backup is complete! pop-up message will appear.
  5. Now click on "OK". A registry backup has now been created.
< STOP > If you did not successfully complete this step. < STOP > Do not continue with any other steps, post back and let me know!

Step 2.
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  1. Please start MBAM (Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware) again.
  2. Press the Update tab.. then press the Check for Updates...button. <<---Important!
    Once any updates are installed or you get the message that you are up-to-date
  3. Press the Scanner tab...
  4. Select FULL SCAN this time... then press the Scan...button. This scan will take a while, so please be patient.
    When the scan finishes...
  5. Check all items except any items (if present) in the C:\System Volume Information folder... then click on Remove Selected.
  6. Let MBAM remove what it can... if there are files to be deleted on reboot... please reboot the machine so MBAM can finish the removal.
    If you rebooted, then you'll need to start MBAM again.
  7. Press the LOG... tab. Locate the most current log file.
    Please copy and paste the most recent log (from this new run) in your next reply.

Step 3.
Kaspersky Online Scanner.
Vista - W7 users: You will need to to right-click on the IE or FF icons on the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.

Please go to Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner © Kaspersky Lab to perform an online antivirus scan.
  1. Read the "Advantages - Requirements and Limitations" then press... the ACCEPT...button.
    If you are warned about other anti-virus programs running, disable your AV realtime protection, for the duration of this scan.
    The latest program and definition files will be downloaded. It takes time, please be patient, let it finish.
  2. Once the files have been downloaded, click on the SETTINGS...button.
    In the scan settings make sure the following are selected:
    • Detect malicious programs of the following categories:
      Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses, Rootkits
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers and other potentially dangerous programs
    • Scan compound files (doesn't apply to the File scan area):
      Archives
      Mail databases
      By default the above items should already be checked.
    • Click the SAVE...button, if you made any changes.
  3. Now under the Scan section on the left:
      Select My Computer
    The program will start scanning your system. This takes a while, be patient... let it run.
    Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  4. Save the scan results as a Text file ... save it to your desktop.
  5. Copy and paste the saved scan results file in your next reply.
Don't forget to enable your realtime anti-virus protection before continuing.

Step 4.
Please include in your next reply:
  1. Any problem executing the instructions?
  2. New MBAM log.
  3. KAS online scan results.
  4. How is the computer behaving?
Thanks,
Wingman

Hello AsahiBeer,

Your computer appears to be malware free! :)

Step 1.
OTM - Clean up
  1. Right click on OTMoveIt3.exe and select Run As Administrator to run it. If Windows UAC prompts, please allow it.
  2. Click on CleanUp!
  3. When done, you will be prompted to restart your computer. Please do so at this time.
If your computer does not automatically restart, please restart it manually.

You may manually remove any program or report left behind from the following processes:
OTM
CKScanner
RSIT
DDS

Create a System Restore Point
  1. Right-click on Computer ... select Properties.
  2. In the left pane under Tasks ... click System protection.
    If UAC prompts for an administrator password or approval, type the password or give your "permission to continue".
  3. Select System Protection ...then choose Create.
  4. In the System Restore dialog box, type a description for the restore point ... click Create, again.
    A window will pop up with "The Restore Point was created successfully" confirmation message.
  5. Click OK ...then close the System Restore dialog.
    Now you have a clean restore point to use if you need to restore your system.
Perform Disk Cleanup
Note: You have to have administrative rights to run Disk Cleanup for "All" users.
  1. Click the Vista Start... button. Type disk in the Start Search text entry box.
  2. Double click the Disk Cleanup entry, from the matching program list.
  3. In the Disk Cleanup options...select "Files from all users on this computer"
    If the Disk Cleanup: Drive Selection dialog box appears:
    • Select the drive where Windows Vista is installed. (Normally, this would be C:\ drive)
    • Press the "OK"...button.
    Disk Cleanup will begin space saving calculations.
  4. When the calculations are finished... Press the More Options tab.
  5. In the "System Restore and Shadow Copies" section... select "Clean up" button.
  6. Press the "Delete"... button, at the "Are you sure..." prompt.
    Disk Cleanup will begin cleaning up old files and restore points.
  7. Exit Disk Cleanup.
    This will remove all restore points except the one you just created.

Please follow these simple guidelines in order to help keep your computer more secure:

Update your Antivirus programs and other programs regularly.
Secunia Personal Software Inspector - Copyright © Secunia. F-secure Health Check - Copyright © F-Secure Corporation.

Visit Microsoft often.
Keep on top of critical updates , as well as other updates for your computer.
Using Windows Update in Windows Vista
What is Windows Update?
Microsoft Update Home

Install additional (free) programs, that can help improve security.
Many feel that having a "layered" protection scheme is beneficial, you'll have to decide what works best for your situation.
Here are a few you can look into, if you want. :)

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
You have this installed already, run scans weekly (at least)... make sure you check for updates before running scans.
Download it from Malewarebytes © Malwarebytes Corporation.
Tutorials are available for installing and running, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
Powerful, easy to use and free. For real-time protection you will have to purchase the product.

WinPatrol
Do not install if you have installed Spybot Search & Destroy and enabled Teatimer protection. System conflicts can occur.
Download it from Copyright © BillP Studios
Information about how WinPatrol works, is available Here
(The free version of WinPatrol... provides limited real-time protection)

Read - stay informed.
COMPUTER SECURITY - a short guide to staying safer online

Please check out this article: Some information may be old but the basic safeguards still apply.
How to prevent Malware:© miekiemoes - Microsoft MVP - Consumer Security .

Please let me know that you completed the cleanup steps, the create/purge System Restore point steps and reviewed the rest of the post. Once I receive your reply, unless there are other malware questions or concerns, I will have this topic closed as resolved.

Stay Safe! ;)

Thanks for the help and i have made two restore points just in case, and i checked out the website how to be safe and i think this is how i got the malware at first, (Be careful when watching online videos, especially when they ask you to install a certain codec to watch the video. By default, your mediaplayer should already have the necessary codecs installed to watch online videos. In case you're prompted to install an additional codec while trying to watch a movie online, it may be a false alert and this so called codec may install malware)this was one of the points. Would've been helpful if i knew before hand lol. Anyways thank you for the support and help. Computer is behaving fine.
