Askey127, the computer seems to be in perfect working order. Other than the fact that I can not enable automatic updates or update via window's update website. I will post the log, but how do you feel about running the following code on this website? "0×80070424", This is the error thatI am getting when I try to go to windows update. Let me know what you think. Website: http://www.techiecorner.com/112/error-n ... -solution/


Thanks Jonathan

jon22,
OK. If that's the error number, I don't see that as being harmful to try.

Go to Start, Run and type or Copy/Paste the following line:
Code: Select all
 %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\REGSVR32.EXE   %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL

Hit <Enter>

Let me know if it changes things.

Askey127, That seemed to do it! I am running windows update as I type and the automatic updates are re-enabled! Thank you for your help with this matter. It seems like everything is running as it should at the moment. Anything that I should run just to be sure on the way out the door as they say ;-) ?

I guess somehow the malware messed with that .dll file and disabled windows update from communicating with the computer?


Thanks again,

Jonathan

jon22,
It's not unusual for infections to disable Windows Updates. All your Security Center notifications were disabled , too.
Just a couple cleanup things to do.
You can delete TDSSKiller, ComboFix (zzz.exe), RogueKiller, RKill, and SystemLook from your desktop.
We also have to replace the obsolete Javas and Adobe Reader we removed.
------------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install the latest version of Java Runtime Environment from here : http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp, and install it to your computer.
In the first section on the page, labeled JDK 6 Update 24 (JDK or JRE), click on the button labeled Download JRE. Do NOT choose the button labeled "Download JDK".
Select the Platform Windows, and check the box to agree to the license.
Choose the Windows Offline installation version and click on the link.
Download it, choose Save, and save it to your desktop.
Then doubleclick it on your desktop, (or right click and choose "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7) and it will install the newest version of Java for you to use.
During the Installation, be sure to UNCHECK any offer for McAfee Security Scan Plus (It's just adware), or extra toolbars.
When it finishes, you can remove the Installer from your desktop.
--------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install the newest version of Adobe Reader for reading pdf files, due to the vulnerabilities in earlier versions.
All versions numbered lower than 10.0 are vulnerable.
Go HERE and click on AdbeRdr1001_en_US.exe to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Save this file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.

After the new Reader is installed, Open Adobe Reader X.
OK the license.
Click on Edit and select Preferences.
On the Left, click on the Javascript category and Uncheck Enable Acrobat Javascript.
Click on the Security (Enhanced) category and Uncheck Automatically trust sites from my Win OS security zones.
Click on the Trust Manager category and Uncheck Allow opening of non-PDF file attachments with external applications.
Click the OK button
------------------------------------------------
Reset System Restore Points
  • Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore
  • Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name and then click Create, then Close.
  • Click Start, Run and type Cleanmgr
  • Select the Windows drive (usually C:), then click OK.
  • After it scans, Click the More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore Section.
This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Reboot your machine to record the changes you have made.
This System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only as a Special Case after the removal of malware or changes in the Restore settings.

You should be good to go. Just remember: NO P2P applications in the future, please.
